TPB to host the county’s biggest travel trade event

image

The Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) is set to host the country’s biggest and most significant travel trade event – the Philippine Travel Exchange (PHITEX), on September 4-6, 2016 at the Marriot Grand Ballroom. In line with the Visit the Philippines Again 2016 (VPA) campaign, this year’s PHITEX is set to once again promote the country as the premier tourist destination among some of the world’s biggest travel and tour buyers.

With this year’s theme “#PHITEX2016: Bigger Business”, TPB is bringing a larger and improved PHITEX with more sessions allocated for business-to-business interactions and better designed pre-tours and post-tours.

Kicking off this week-long event is the 27th Philippine Travel Mart (PTM) on September 2-3 at SMX Convention Center. Organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA), PTM is considered to be one of the major travel trade exhibitions in the promotion of domestic and inbound tourism. The event attracts buyers from all over the world as it presents the best and most affordable tour packages in the country.

Highlighting the event is the Travel Exchange (TRAVEX), which includes exclusive business-to-business appointment meetings between Philippine sellers and foreign buyers. By giving them the chance to personally meet the local sellers, buyers are introduced to the Philippines’ marketing trends and practices. In exchange, sellers are given an edge to offer globally competitive tour packages to the international market. These sessions will also provide foreign buyers the opportunity to experience the fun and exciting post tours to main Philippine attractions and destinations.

“PHITEX has been instrumental in strengthening the brand image of the Philippines,” shares TPB Chief Operating Officer Domingo Ramon C. Enerio III. “By introducing the best tourism products and services to the international market and bringing together the different stakeholders in the tourism industry, the country has become an important destination, not only for various international and high-level business and economic meetings but also for travel and trade. In fact, the country has welcomed more than 2.5 million visitors from January to May 2016. This is 13.02% higher than the accumulated arrivals in January to May 2015.”

Now on its 15th year, PHITEX has been continuously sustaining the growth that the Philippines has gained in the global tourism market.

Education for the Underserved Communities

image

Barangay Burabod is a secluded area located at the foot of Mt. Isarog in Calabanga, Camarines Sur. Because of its remoteness and distance from the urban areas of the municipality, students in Barangay Burabod had to hike 5 kilometers to be able to reach the nearest school.

Upon visiting the area a few years ago, former Camarines Sur Representative and now Vice President Leni Robredo had a chance to speak with Burabods Barangay Captain Roberto C. Cabaltera. They looked for possible ways to bring education closer to students and put up a secondary school in the location. After enlisting the support of various LGUs and government agencies, Severo High School in Burabod  named after Eduardo A. Severo, who generously donated a one-hectare lot  finally opened its doors to 123 enrollees last June 2014.

image

As fate would have it, Typhoon Glenda hit the Philippines that same year, and devastated areas of Camarines Sur. Severo High School was severely damaged, leaving its teachers, students and entire community in dire need to repair its classrooms with the hope to make it far sturdier than the original construction.

Not known to the people of Brgy. Burabod, events were already unfolding to address their need. Philam Foundation was coordinating with the Department of Education in identifying areas that were most in need of new classrooms under its Philam Paaralan program. Its goal was to build classrooms in calamity-stricken and under-served communities. When Robredo explained the situation of Severo High School to Philam Foundation President Max Ventura, construction plans began to unfold.

Apart from rehabilitation work that needed to be done, Philam Foundation successfully built two new Philam Paaralan classrooms for Severo Highschool, in partnership with the Happy Hearts Fund.

The act of physically building an educational structure is such a metaphor for deeper, more profound things, explained Ventura. Ultimately, we are building the knowledge of our youth and securing their future. Philam Foundation is thankful to all our partners and everyone who made it possible, he added.

The new Philam Paaralan classrooms can accommodate approximately 100 students. We were intentional in the way we designed these classrooms, taking into consideration the risk of calamities, Ventura pointed out. These classrooms are typhoon-proof and built using the latest steel frame technology. Students of Severo High school can now concentrate on their lessons and academic work with no need to worry when the rains come.

Aside from having typhoon-resilient structures, our classrooms are fully-furnished with water sanitation and hygiene facilities that will promote cleanliness and healthy living among students, Ventura concluded. 

Established in 1997 to commemorate Philam Life’s 50th Golden Anniversary, Philam Foundation, Inc. is the social development arm of the Philam Group of Companies. It is a non-stock, non-profit organization committed to serve the less privileged in society. To learn more about the Philam Foundation, visit http://www.philamlife.com.

Knorr – Mom’s partner in cooking, giving happiness to every filipino homes

Everyone has a first love. And to me, cooking is what i love doing.

I remember the first time I cooked, because I think I had to learn cooking when i became a mom. I also got into a cooking school somewhere in Green hills San Juan that made me like to pursue more in cooking. So i was familiar with how to prepare paella for special occasions and for my family, whenever everyone’s busy, this dish is something more special than any home cooked dishes.
my all time favorite dish, Sinigang.

Knorr has always been a part of cooking for 45 years. Making savoury dishes and easy to prepare a fantastic soup for the family to enjoy. 

Knorr recently hosted another event  for Mommy Bloggers Philippines, dubbed as #LutongNanay happened last August 12, 2016 at The Cookery Place in BGC, Taguig.

This occasion was a follow-up event to further promote Knorr’s #LutongNanay campaign. Now on its 3rd year, Knorr Lutong Nanay continues to champion delicious, home cooked meals for the Filipino family, especially in this day and age of eating out and instant food.

Knorr Philippines aims to bring back the passion in cooking not only to strengthen more the bond of every family member through the joy of eating together but also address the wonderful progress that Knorr has given to every filipino meal.

When a mother cooks, it is often seen as a way for her to ensure her family’s well being – and through Knorr, moms can serve nutritious meals without sacrificing great flavor” Karnani continues.

To understand more of the #LutongNanay campaign is all about and the focus on Sinigang,
according to Chef Kai – a talented chef and a mother to two – did a cooking demonstration on various Sinigang recipes, after which, the participants or mommies cooked and plated different Sinigang dishes.

Four different Sinigang variations were prepared that day. Sinigang with a a twist. Surely kids will love!

These are:

Knorr Sinigang with Pakwan,
Knorr Surf and Turf Sinigang,
Knorr Sinigang na Liempo sa Sampaloc and
Knorr Sizzling Sinigang

We had the hands-on opportunity to make and experience how to cook these Sinigang variations by group.

Our team cooked Knorr Sizzling Sinigang

At first it was hard because these recipes were not the usual Sinigang. We were all curious but were all excited on how the dish would turn out.

And here’s our Knorr Sizzling Sinigang. I love how savoury our sinigang was. And the taste? It was perfect! The real taste of tamarind burst with flavours specially when it is prepared hot.
