LG wins coveted Italian design award for Dual Door-in-DoorTM refrigerator

MANILA – Global technology innovator LG Electronics (LG) has been awarded the prestigious Compasso d’Oro International Award for the revolutionary refrigerator design of the company’s Dual Door-in-Door™ refrigerators. The company took home the top prize in the Design Food Preparation and Instruments category.

As the oldest and most recognized award of its kind in Europe, the Compasso d’Oro (“Golden Compass”) was established in 1954 to celebrate the products that were Made in Italy. Hosted exclusively by Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (ADI), the theme for this year’s award was Design for Food and Nutrition. The 2015 competition was the first time the award was open to competitors from outside Italy, making LG among the first foreign winner of Compasso d’Oro International. Entries were evaluated on three criteria: Innovation, Communicative Quality and Sustainability. The official awarding ceremony took place recently in Milan.

LG’s Door-in-Door concept has revolutionized refrigerator design, giving users quick access to frequently sought food items while simultaneously cold air loss. LG took the initial Door-in-Door concept one step further by adding another Door-in-Door compartment to double the convenience. Door-in-Door technology reduces the amount of cold air loss by up to 47 percent1 and with the addition of a second independent Door-in-Door compartment, cold air loss is further reduced.

But the design innovation isn’t just on the outside. Various compartments in the Dual Door-in-Door™ refrigerator make organization very easy. The Family Space compartment can be accessed from the outside at the push of a button and is perfect for frequently accessed items such as snacks and drinks. The Cooking Space on the left can be opened with an Easy-Open Handle that is hidden by the bottom of the door trim and holds essential cooking ingredients such as chopped vegetables, condiments and sauces.

With Black Stainless finishing, LG’s Dual Door-in-Door™ provides a stylish design that is both aesthetically pleasing and leaves the outside fingerprint and smudge resistant so it always looks its best.

“We are pleased to be recognized as one of the first international companies to receive the prestigious 2015 Compasso d’Oro award,” Vice President for LG Philippines Home Appliances Youngmin Chae said. “Design plays a vital role in LG’s overall product development as it brings beauty and functionality to our consumers’ lifestyles. This award is a testament to LG’s intent and design leadership in the home appliance industry.”

Prinsipe Munti | Theater Review

On Wednesday, December 9, I saw an adaptation theatre act of the play “Le Petit Prince” most popularly known in its English version “Little Prince” originally written by  French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. “Prinsipe Munti” was a playwright by Layeta Bucoy which presented by the Tanghalang Pilipino at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Theatre in Pasay City. This brilliant creation is about a young Prince who owns a planet and truly adores a beautiful rose that live in his planet, the story begin to change when the rose and the Prince seems to have a confusion understanding what the Rose really wants. The journey of the Prince in finding new friends leads him in encountering other perspective on “how they value things in their life?”

During the show, I very much enjoyed the performance of Noel Comia as Prinsipe Munti, because not only he’s great child actor but also he delivers the musical side of the play very well. Noel is the main face of the play and I must say that the child actor perfectly blend with the theater world as he effortlessly did the dialogue with 15 different characters and successfully balanced the mood in each scenario of the story.

I also enjoyed the exchange of conversation between Prinsipe Munti and Alamid. Alamid is played by Jonathan Tadioan, he optimizes the stage very well in the story when Prinsipe Munti is trying to tame him – it was very convincing that his facial emotion and his low register voice creates a virtual arena that let Prinsipe Munti strive harder in attaining Alamid’s trust. Their tandem seems to serve like a father-and-son relationship which makes it harder for Prinsipe Munti to leave from Earth going back to his own planet.

I also would like to discuss the performance of Marco Viaña that played the role of the Pilot. The ending part of story serves as the conclusion of what the story is all about. At the beginning it was a long transition stressing all the fine points about being a matured person into the realization that he will not understand what Prinsipe Munti is saying because “he is a grown-up” person. However, when transition was done – it was a gorgeous scene and everybody is celebrating.

In addition, I was also impressed with the technical side of the show. The stage might not be as huge as the main theater of CCP but throughout the whole show they successfully carried out “What is necessary?” “What is appropriate for the scene?” and “How to maximize the stage”. The only thing that I wish is that, they will make the whole playlist of the song available in iTunes for me to download it.

Overall, Prinsipe Munti is a must see theatre play – I encourage everyone (specially the grown-ups) to watch it, as it will serve as your reminder the true value of life.  

"Sa pamamagitan lamang ng puso nakikita kung ano ang tama, ang mga tunay na inportante ay hindi nakikita ng mga mata"

Prinsipe Munti runs until Dec. 13, 2015. Buy your tickets on Ticketworld or call Tanghalang Pilipino ticketing at 09273629081 / 09088941384.

2015 Best Ramen in Manila by a Japanese Reviewer

Gaku Nakamura is a self-styled Japanese Ramen Consultant living in Manila. Last year, he listed his top 10 ramen with Ramen Nagi topping the list. But with a number of new and authentic restaurants popping up, here is some of Gaku-san’s top ramen for 2015!

MUST TRY: Shoyu Tonkatsu

Gaku says: “Mendokoro has tonkotsu-based ramen with chashu. The restaurant looks just like a Japanese-style kitchen and it reminds me of a good ramen restaurant in Japan, Afuri. The taste of the broth and chasu is very nice.”

MUST TRY: Cheese Tsukemen

Gaku says: “Tsukemen soup is yuzu flavor and the noodles are thick. I have never thought that cheese can fit wih Tsukemen, but you will be satisfied once you taste it at Mitsuyado!

MUST TRY: Miso Ramen

Gaku says: “The best Miso ramen in Manila! It is located along Shaw Blvd. Although not located in a major mall, lots of people go there just to eat Daisho's delicious ramen. Not only ramen, but their gyoza are also delicious.”

MUST TRY: Butao Ramen

Gaku says: “Nagi’s tonkotsu-based broth tastes like real Japanese tonkotsu. If you’re a first-time visitor, try Butao. When you've eaten half of it, try to add their Fire sauce to change the taste. You can also change the firmness of the ramen and the toppings based on your preference.”

Heads up! Gary V on Novuhair: putting energy into prevention

Nothing describes Gary Valenciano quite like his moniker “Mr. Pure Energy,” He is the very image of youthful vibrance, whether onstage or not. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he values the way he looks the same way that he values the core of who he is: a prayerful, faithful husband, dependable father, and an outstanding entertainer. 

​Part of what makes Gary stay young looking is his head of hair. What many people don’t know is that, like all other men his age, Gary once worried about hair thinning and hair loss. That’s why, at the first signs of the problem, Gary sought to find ways to prevent it from becoming worse. 
​“I first noticed the hair loss in the shower, after I toweled my hair dry. Then one day, my team of hairstylists noticed that my hair was thinning, too. That’s when they told me to look for the product that Fanny Serrano was using, a product called NOVUHAIR,” remarked Gary on his journey to regaining control over his hair loss.
​NOVUHAIR is a topical scalp lotion that is a unique combination of 14 different natural ingredients and essential oils for a healthier hair and scalp. One of the factors of hair loss, according to studies, is stress, something that Gary experiences on almost a daily basis. Other factors include hereditary disorders, a persistent illness, major surgery, hormonal problems, childbirth & delivery, medications, infections, pollutants, and even excessive exposure to sunlight. And contrary to popular belief, hair loss is as much a problem for women as it is for men. In many cases, hair loss may be prevented or alleviated through early detection. In the case of Gary, his decision to try NOVUHAIR to prevent his symptoms from worsening made a big difference, and within a few months, he saw remarkable results.
​Gary shares his experience with NOVUHAIR as he tells the story of their family hair history: “Hair loss runs in our family, too, even if it sometimes skips a generation. My brother and grandfather both lost their hair, but my dad still has a full head of hair at 87. I just wanted to make sure I take control of my symptoms. Now, I use NOVUHAIR everyday, and I’ve noticed that I don’t shed as much hair as I did before, especially after toweling my hair dry. And my hairstylists noticed it, too. I love using NOVUHAIR because it has this minty, cool effect that makes me feel like my hair is always clean and fresh.”

​“In less than a month and half, I already saw results even if I was told to wait three to four months before I can see a difference. The effects on me were much faster. There were fewer strands on my white towel, which basically was within the normal boundaries of hair loss for an average person. Before using NOVUHAIR, I used to shed more.” This is due to the fact that NOVUHAIR penetrates deep to help rejuvenate, nourish, & maintain moisture in the scalp and hair. By improving the blood circulation in the scalp, NOVUHAIR helps stimulate hair growth and aid in preventing further, excessive hair fall, while also improving the overall appearance of the hair.

​“I never endorse a product that I did not experience first. I have to make sure it is really effective. With Novuhair, I can say that it has really contributed to my peace of mind and overall well-being. And, heads up, as Novuhair is now part of my daily routine, which includes prayer, diet, and medication. God has truly lived up to his promise in my life, and as he says in Psalm 92:14 ‘I will keep you fruitful even in old age. Fresh and green.’ I am very happy now that Novuhair is a part of that.”

NOVUHAIR, Nature’s Answer to Hair Loss is available in all Mercury Drug outlets, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Star Drug & Manson Drug, Metro Gaisano Pharmacy, The Landmark (Makati & TriNoma), J Centre Mall (Cebu), KCC Malls (Gen. Santos City & Koronadal City), NCCC Malls (Palawan & Davao), Gaisano Malls (Davao & Gen. Santos City) and online at and For inquiries, call 413-6570 or 0922-8830575.

Little Lights: MMFF Animation Category Finalist

Manila, Philippines – “Little Lights” is a story about being born with a lack of light. More importantly, it shows what happens when we, as individuals and as a community, discover what it means to be empowered by our differences and similarities.

A physically weak but strong-minded firefly named Charlie is forced to face his fears. Charlie struggles, not only to overcome his fear of darkness, but also to find his place in his discord-riddled firefly community. But, in spite of his own weaknesses and the indifference of his fellow fireflies, Charlie sets out to become stronger, eventually leading his loved ones to safety when danger arises.

Told using a combination of unique visual and musical artistry, Little Lights aims to inspire others to find their own light and to not be afraid to share it.
Little Lights is a passion project that started with two artists, Rivelle Mallari and Reginald Espiritu, who envisioned telling a story by combining the art of animation and a live musical scoring.

Launching of Electronic Solo Act Paincake Patrol's EP entitled - Social Constructs.

Sharing the belief that a life worth living is defined by a purpose of your own manufacture and not by social consensus, one-man electronic music project Paincake Patrol launches his first-ever EP //Social Constructs on December 5, 2015 at Today x Future in Cubao, Quezon City.

Created in 2011 out of passion for music, Paincake Patrol is the recording project of musician Eeman Bulotano. This experimental solo project is focused on creating alternative electronic and ambient music, reflecting the artist’s experiences and views on existence in general.

“[I want to] make music people can listen to without [them] having to ignore the person standing next to them,” says Eeman whose goal is to provide music that “makes you think, but yet somehow not [distract you] at all.”

Emotions, Experiences and Expression

The idea behind //Social Constructs and Paincake Patrol itself is inspired and widely influenced by the very existence of ambient music as pioneered by Brian Leno during the 1980’s. Usually electronic and instrumental in nature, ambient music aims to create a perfect balance between disappearance and presence.

Though it has existed for a long time now, ambient music remains relatively unknown to the mainstream crowd as it is seen as "too smart" or "overly deep.” However, Eeman and many other ambient music artists see this type of music as simpler and more relatable compared to any other genre because it provides the chance to be freely interpreted by its listeners. This genre is powered by the experiences and emotions not just by the one who created the music but also by those whom the music is created for.

Songs from this genre evolve from the mere self-expression of one artist into many different stories weaved by those present in the audience. They are taken and understood in more ways than one – similar to how individuals give meaning to various things and, ultimately, to life.

Existence Defined and Redefined

Music relives one’s memories, and the entire Paincake Patrol project intends to elicit nostalgia while stimulating thought-provoking conversations. With this particular EP, the artist focused on his view of the general meaning of existence and how empty it may seem when viewed only in an objective and logical way.

Each composition is appropriately titled based heavily on how the artist views reality. Combining master beats with ethereal notes, //Social Constructs’ first three tracks aim to reflect the existential angst and loneliness one might experience when he or she has failed to see reason behind life.

(Ee)Man behind the Music

Fascinated with weird ambient and dreamy sounds, Eeman has been recording his own music and releasing it on Sound Cloud starting 2010. He has released three LPs from 2011 to 2014. Since then, he has been featured in a few publications, such as Indienationblog and Exposed Vocals. In the Philippine Indie Rock Awards 2015, he was awarded Keyboardist of the Year through his current band, Audio Drive Thru.

He took the next step early this year by doing live gigs all over the metro. Six short months and several introductions to numerous people later, he is now ready to share his music more widely to the world.
