Event: Chicdriven Women Empowerment Expo happening on March 28-30, Alabang Town Center

 Chicdriven Women Empowerment Expo:

 Women on Driving and fabulous multi-tasking 


In this time and age, women can have it all.  They can be mothers, career women, married or single, passionate advocates and decision-makers. Women have become a force to reckon with in predominantly masculine industries including Motoring. Hence the Chicdriven Column was born.  It’s motoring in women-speak.  Cars are not tested on how many cylinders it has but how many strollers it can fit or if its ride is good enough to apply liquid eyeliner while sitting in the passenger seat.

Cars have become one of the tools that help Chicdriver¹s achieve “having it all.” Though always trying to strive for the best, this endeavor is not without broken nails or messed up hair.  In fact, to be Chicdriven means honoring the struggles and efforts each and every woman goes through to become what she chooses to be — helping herself to the tools that make it look effortless.  Having it all need not be perfect, just chic.

In celebration of International Women¹s Month, Zest Asia Inc. has organized the Chicdriven Women Empowerment Expo happening in Alabang Town Center Atrium on March 28-30, 2014.  This community development event aims to arm women with the different tools, information and skills to help them achieve having it all, the Chicdriven way.

Inspired by the overwhelming response to the Chicdriven Column in Philippine Daily Inquirer Motoring section, this celebration of women empowerment is supported by Alabang Town Center, Bridgestone Tires,Toyota Motor Philippines.  The expo offers free seminars and workshops on topics such as road safety, auto maintenance, fashion, beauty, parenting, life balance, health and wellness.  Other highlights include the Electrolux cooking demo By Chef Bruce Lim, and a Makeover station by BYS cosmetics.  Partners including Standard Insurance, Marie France, Brabantia, Garden barn and Tuason Racing School will offer exciting booth demos and workshops during the expo.

“We wanted to make an event that will bring together different women’s group and advocacies in one celebration.  We want the community to be engaged as active participants and not just passive spectators,” explains Jeanette Ipapo-Tuason, author of the Chicdriven and organizer of the expo. “Each seminar represents an advocacy and is co-hosted by a civic or advocacy group such as Zonta Club Alabang, Mommy Mundo, and parent’s associations of the different schools in the south.² she added.

The Chicdriven Women Empowerment Expo will run from March 28-30, 2014 at the Alabang Town Center Atrium and will be open during mall hours. The event is also supported by Fringe Salon, Fitness First, Melissa and Doug, Ogalala, Safety 1st, Pigeon, and Gluta White, Has Travel.com.  Media Partners are Metro, Working Mom, Chalk, Lifestyle Chanel, E! and Motioncars.com.

News Release


 Valentino Rossi has officially landed on the Philippines last February 23, 2014. He came to help support Yamaha’s Lend a Hand Project. This charity effort aims to raise funds to help the victims of those affected by Typhoon Yolanda.

Before the race officially began, a press conference was first graced by the Moto GP legend Valentino Rossi, Yamaha Motor Philippines Inc.’s President Toru Osugi, Sales General Manager Romeo Tan, Corporate Support/Corporate Services/Logistics General Manager Alfredo Lejano and Marketing Section Manager Ryan Jude Camus. Discussed during the press conference was Yamaha’s CSR activity to help rebuild the lives of Typhoon Yolanda victims. This effort was made possible with the support from Yamaha Motor Company Ltd., Yamaha Motor Racing, Moto GP and YMPH. After the brief discussion, Valentino Rossi went out and greeted the riders who participated in the most-awaited racing event in the country, YGP 5. The Doctor also thanked everyone who has supported Yamaha’s charity effort. Yamaha Club presidents and members who attended the event grabbed the chance to have a photo op with their number one idol. .

Valentino Rossi’s presence together with YMPH’s new president, Mr. Osugi, signaled the beginning of the race. To make YGP 5 more special, Valentino Rossi has changed to his racing suit to ride around the laps where our local riders battled it out for a podium finish. It was indeed a memorable event for everyone who attended. This is YMPH’s way of revving your hearts. Experience a deep satisfaction that enriches the lives of people. Experience Yamaha.
