“We continue to create innovative ways for people to enjoy rum. The collaboration between two award-winning brands -- Tanduay and Theo & Philo – gives us a truly Filipino product we can be proud of.” ~Paul Lim, Tanduay Distillers, Inc. chief marketing officer
Tuesday, October 29, 2019
As the cacao used in making Theo, Philo & Tanduay is solely sourced in Davao, the sugarcane used for Tanduay Asian Rum Gold is sourced and harvested from Bacolod. All Tanduay products are also proudly Philippine-made.
It is in the Davao region that local chocolatier Theo & Philo sources its cacao ingredients for the production of its best-selling chocolates in Manila. Most recently, it partnered with Tanduay to come up with the Theo, Philo & Tanduay—a chocolate bar made with 65% dark chocolate filled with house-made caramel and the much-lauded Tanduay Asian Rum Gold.
In 2018, Tanduay Asian Rum Gold received the Gold award from the International Review of Spirits, the Silver award from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and another Silver Award from the WSWA Tasting Competition. Prior to that, it received the Gold Medal from the Monde Selection, the 3-Star Superior Taste Ward from the International Taste & Quality Institute, the Gold award from the International Review of Spirits, Beverage Testing Institute—all in 2017.
Brought to the country by the Spaniards in the 18th century, cacao has found a fertile land to grow in the Philippines. Because of our strategic location near the equator, the plant flourished and cacao plantations can now be found in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Theo, Philo & Tanduay is exclusively available at the Tanduay Store at Century Park Hotel in Malate, Manila.

With so much innovation to offer, Taiwan, with the help of Taiwan Excellence, is improving lives all over the world. Under its umbrella are companies and brands that provide concrete solutions to real world problems, effectively transforming the dreams of a smart future into reality.
Dubbed as the heart of Asia, Taiwan beats with a fiery passion that attracts many Filipinos. In fact, the number of Filipinos who visited the island republic increased in 2018 by 44.13% from 2017. For some, Taiwan is a food destination and picturesque views. To many others, it is the home of cutting-edge technologies and life-changing innovations.
Over the past year, Taiwan has grown into a global leader in innovation by supplying solutions to our modern problems. The value they provide is so gigantic that the Taiwanese economy lists global powerhouses such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, and IBM as part of its clientele. It's easy to get lost at the rate Taiwan churns out game-changing products. So, for those who are looking to get the best Taiwan can offer, look for the seal of the Taiwan Excellence Award.
"Products selected for the Taiwan Excellence Awards serve as shining examples for the domestic industry. Apart from the distinction, these products, and brands are also promoted by the Taiwanese government on many international stages. Taiwan Excellence works to connect people through innovation and excellence, which they can feel in their lives every day." ~Tony Lin, deputy director of the Strategic Marketing Department of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA)
The Taiwan Excellence Awards covers different products that are used in various sectors such as manufacturing, education, healthcare, transportation, e-commerce, smart living, green energy, and public service.
Real world innovations
Under its umbrella are companies and brands that provide concrete solutions to real world problems, effectively transforming the dreams of a smart future into reality.
For one, tech giant Acer has been developing a self-driving car that will usher in a new age in smart transportation. During the project, they partnered with Yulon Group, one of Taiwan's top carmakers.
In the realm of robotics, there is the TTRobotix's SeaDragon XLR, a remote-controlled robot, and submarine, that can dive 300 meters deep to aid in surveillance, rescue, or marine research.
Also updating the way we learn in the classroom, Everest Display Inc. boasts its Cloud Touch Projector. Unlike traditional projectors, the device can be used independently with its built-in Android system and a range of unique functions and features.
Revolutionizing personal hygiene is the Eleclean disinfectant spray, made of 100% pure water with no chemical additives. Housed in a compact device, the water is electrolyzed to create reactive oxygen species that are strong enough to kill most disorder-causing microorganisms, while remaining gentle so that it doesn't cause skin irritation.
To help people adjust to rising air pollution rates, Edimax created EdiGreen Airbox, a smart air quality detector with temperature and humidity sensors. It accurately measures the levels of harmful miniscule particulate matter present in the air.
A triumph in the field of smart healthcare is being developed by AmCad Biomed. Their AmCadUT Thyroid Cancer detection machine uses the power of algorithms to automatically classify thyroid tumors. According to Peter Wu, president of AmCad, the machine can analyze whether a tumor is benign or malignant. In addition, it has an average accuracy of 90 percent, 15 to 25 percent higher than that of the most superior experts.
Unparalleled excellence for the world
With so much innovation to offer, Taiwan, with the help of Taiwan Excellence, is improving lives all over the world. Later this year, Taiwan Excellence will showcase some of its great products for Filipinos to enjoy.
To experience many other wondrous innovations, Taiwan Excellence is inviting everyone to the Taiwan Expo, which will highlight Taiwan's experience and expertise in various industries such as technology, agriculture, design, medical care, education, and tourism on November 8-9 at the SMX Convention Center, Davao.

OPPO Introduces the Reno2 Series that Helps Redefine Storytelling in the Era of Phoneography
World-leading smartphone brand OPPO will soon unveil its Reno2 Series in the Philippines, which includes the Reno2 and the Reno2 F, promising to reimagine the limits of users’ creativity by allowing everyone to be a storymaker with ease. The latest iteration of OPPO’s successful Reno series is equipped with a slew of video shoot-enhancing features, including a 48MP quad camera setup, 20x digital zoom, Ultra Dark Mode feature allowing users to enjoy ultra-clear night shots, and the Ultra Steady Video that lets users take exceptionally clear and smooth videos.
Reno Series Driving Creativity
The OPPO Reno story began with the release of the first Reno Series early this year. The series is tailor-made to empower young creative pioneers who break boundaries to express themselves. To bring that to life, the Reno Collective was formed to inspire budding Filipino artists from different facets of art to create more. The first Reno Collective headliners were composed of Treb Monteras II and Dex Fernandez for visual arts, Daryl & Andre Chang for fashion, and IV of Spades for music.
The upcoming OPPO Reno2 Series will take the vision a step further as it welcomes the emergence of videos becoming the new photos. The new OPPO Reno2 series focuses on the field of phoneography, enabling everyone to be a storymaker as it allows them to share a slice of their daily life creatively. With the Reno2 series, everyone is empowered to tell their own stories with more depth as the new series delivers stellar phoneography features.
Anyone is a Storymaker with the OPPO Reno2 Series
OPPO has always been widely known for being a leader in mobile photography. This time it introduces yet another innovation as it elevates the smartphone phoneography experience with its latest Reno2 series offering. The new Reno2 series will also be the brand’s first-ever handset to feature a quad camera setup. With this innovation, it provides a powerful toolkit for seeing things differently from all viewpoints allowing users to capture remarkable moments in both photos and videos.
The quad camera provides a full focal length imaging system, offering a 20x Digital Zoom, ultra-wide-angle lens, and more. Three lenses of varying focal lengths will work in unison to create a unique 5x Hybrid Zoom effect from ultra-wide angle to telephoto, which will fuse image technology to ensure a smooth and seamless zoom transition. The ultra-wide angle lens will provide an impressive 116° perspective, for a bigger canvas to better express yourself. Additionally, the Reno2 also offers 20x digital zoom - a first in smartphone phoneography; enabling users to capture what’s beyond the unimaginable distance.
The Reno2’s Ultra Dark Mode and Reno2 F’s Ultra Dark Mode 2.0 covers an entire range of different night scenes, including bright city districts and dimly lit country nights to name a few. Even if light levels measure below 1 lux, it can elevate your photos through hardware network-optimized AI noise reduction.
As one of the leaders in Hybrid Image Stabilization technology, the Reno2 Series’ Ultra Steady Video brings exceptionally clear and smooth video shots. Approaching the quality level of purpose-built action camera, the Reno2 Series is able to keep up in capturing moments even in exciting and high-action situations.
Reno2 F on the other hand promises equally stellar photography and phoneography experience with a quad camera that’s equipped with a 48MP Main + 8MP Wide + 2MP Filter + 16MP Front Camera.
The Reno2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G that guarantees smoother performance that is even boosted with its 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. While the Reno2 F is powered by MediaTek Helio P70 that gives the user a superior smartphone performance that seamlessly work greater with its 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal capacity. Both units are enhanced with the VOOC 3.0 technology that ensures faster charging time yet longer-lasting use with its 4,000 mAh battery capacity.
