Summer’s exasperating heat has caused too much of an inconvenience for Filipino families. The humidity has hindered them from going about their daily activities, leaving them tired, and irate due to the weather. Filipinos have tried many ways to beat the heat like hanging out at the malls or enjoying cold desserts like halo-halo. However, these are only quick-fix solutions that can lead to higher expenses without the family noticing it.
As a company focused on offering innovative solutions, Samsung Digital Appliances introduces the Samsung AR7000, designed to end the summer dilemma of every Filipino family.
Samsung AR7000 delivers powerful cooling through its triangle architecture. This ensures faster and corner-to-corner cooling in rooms. The improved width and angle of its outlet, extra v-blades, and bigger fans ensure that air is cooled and expelled faster and further compared to the usual air conditioner. It has also been designed from the ground up to be outstandingly efficient so that cool air reaches every corner of the room. With this, heat will definitely be eliminated from every spot in the house, making it a more comfortable haven for families even during summer.

|Dr. Ferdinand Blancaflor Pitagan (DepEd educational technology consultant) on his talk during the conference|
A public school in Quezon City has improved its passing rate for the University of the Philippines College Admissions Test (UPCAT) this year, and all it took was the school-wide implementation of a free education online platform.
Irene Canon of Culiat High School in Quezon City said that with introduction of Quipper School last year, their students’ UPCAT performance improved considerably.
Canon, who is assistant to the principal for administration and OIC school administrator, shared that seven of their students passed the recent UPCAT. In past years, the school was lucky to have at least just one student pass the test. Likewise, a number of their pupils have won top prizes in a number of inter-school competitions.
“I have been with Culiat for 33 long years. I can say this is a very unique experience for all of us,” she said.
This was one of testimonies shared by participants in the recent National Principals Conference organized by Quipper School (QS). The conference was held to work with educators nationwide to find out how it can help improve the quality of education in the Philippines through technology. Participants numbering close to 600 came from as far as Mountain Province to Davao City.

We Filipinos love food in general. We're always on the lookout of something new. And if we're craving for Japanese food, we found a new go-to place to satisfy our Japanese cravings! Japan's Tenya is now in the Philippines and they're now ready to serve authentic Japanese Tendons! Tenya's first branch is located at the 4th floor bridgeway of SM Megamall.
At Tenya, we can now get to taste the diverse and exciting flavors of Japanese classics such as Tonkantsu, Curry and Ramen. As we embrace Japanese cuisines, I'm sure we will find new favorite dishes at Tenya.

I remember when my hubby and I were both single and every time he wanted to buy leather shoes for work, we always frequent Florsheim branches in Robinsons Galleria and SM North Edsa. Though it's not in everyone's price range, he reasoned that Florsheim shoes are classic and worth every penny because it can last years and years.
And true to its word, Florsheim equals to quality leather. They still maintained the classic style but also updated their designs with different colors. Florsheim shoes are still produced with premium quality raw materials and meticulous product development.
Florsheim Philippines opened its 10th branch located at Ayala Fairview Terraces and I was able to check it out and was still impressed with their designs and classic styles.
