“This award is for the management, (as well as) the operations people [who are also considered as frontliners]. They worked so hard for this in a good and very respectful way. If not for them, Hotel Sogo will not be this big, well known, and will have many branches nationwide.” ~Ms. Sue Geminiano, Marketing Director of Hotel Sogo
“Social media opened a huge door for brands like Mang Inasal to connect real-time with customers. These platforms serve as avenues where we get to discover what makes our customers happy, ‘kilig’ and excited. These overflowing emotions signal to us what we can ‘trendjack’ and enable us to bring the brand within those conversations. Relationship-building with customers is now made faster all thanks to social media. SEVENTEEN’s fans, the Carats, have been tweeting Mang Inasal to support their idols. And as a special Christmas gift to them, we've granted their wish as we were among the sponsors of the SEVENTEEN WORLD TOUR [BE THE SUN] – BULACAN. For Mang Inasal, Moment Marketing is important because we want to be with our customers wherever they are and that includes the trends that matter to them. It excites us knowing that we are part of the conversation of our consumers because it’s a validation that we remain relevant to them. Mang Inasal is continuously learning today in terms of Moment Marketing and we can’t wait what 2023 has for us. But so far, our strategy is working for us because it allows the brand to sincerely connect with the consumers who talk about us, and create moments that will make them remember us more meaningfully.” ~RJ Jabeguero-Rodillo, Mang Inasal’s Head of Digital and PR
“Filipinos always have loved ones and friends living overseas whom they would want to keep in touch with, especially during the holiday season.

Through our DITO IDD promo packs, they won’t have to worry too much about the cost of making an international call, making it easier for them to always connect with family and friends.” ~Evelyn Jimenez, DITO Telecommunity Chief Commercial Officer

“This year’s Christmas celebration is extra special for many reasons. After two years of heightened restrictions, we have taken the necessary steps to allow for gatherings with family and close friends while still keeping each other safe. We at PCPPI are excited to experience the Filipino spirit of community and thanksgiving during the ‘most wonderful time of the year,’ with our well-loved beverages as part of every celebration. Let us remember there remains to be plenty of ‘extra’ for us to be thankful for this Christmas and in the coming New Year. May we cherish the bonds that bring us together not just during the Holidays but every day of the years ahead.” ~Frederick D. Ong, PCPPI President and Chief Executive Officer
“Wok-Seared Steak and Shrimp is unlike any other item we offer at Panda Express®. Joining the Chinese wok with the American steakhouse experience resulted in a dish reminiscent of a classic steak dinner while still offering the bold flavors and fresh ingredients that makes it uniquely Panda. The Wok Smart American Chinese dish is an indulgent experience of a quality steakhouse dinner without the guilt. Wok-Seared Steak and Shrimp is high in protein and light on calories.” ~Chef Jimmy Wang, Head of Culinary Innovation at Panda Express
“Sometimes, even our favorite food can cause harm to our bodily functions if we eat too much of it. An uptick in dietary sodium content increases the amount of calcium excretion in the urine, while an excess of sugar can cause increased urine calcium and decreased urine volume, a perfect scenario for urinary stone formation. Some major dietary aggressors are large amounts of red meat, nuts, seafood, and shellfish because of the sodium and uric acid content. Junk foods and highly processed foods, too. Of course, too much sugar is also bad for the body. It increases your risk of packing on weight, and obesity makes you more prone to developing stones. It’s also a common misconception that milk and dairy products can cause kidney stones, because it contains calcium. That’s only partially true. The body still needs calcium, and proteins and oxalate can be found in foods that are actually healthy for the body, like peanuts, beans, spinach and strawberries. The solution is to consume moderate amount of calcium-rich foods with oxalate-rich foods, so that they bind together in the gut and get digested properly, instead of being excreted in the kidney. Softdrinks and drinks with alcoholic content are the staples for Filipino families during a Christmas party, so make sure that there is also clean drinking water available. I even personally recommend avoiding those drinks altogether. It’s also important not to skip out on the fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits, as the citric acid alkalinizes the urine and is a natural inhibitor of stone formation. While of course, we advocate for the prevention of kidney stones by making healthier lifestyle choices, we hope patients know that CSMC is happy to offer its services to those who need it, especially those who are currently suffering from kidney stones or are exhibiting symptoms. Patients are assured that they will receive the best possible care here.” ~Dr. Jason L. Letran, Cardinal Santos Medical Center’s (CSMC) Chief of the Section of Urology
