MEDITATE YOUR WAY TO HEALTH, SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS

What do Oprah Winfrey, Paul McCartney, Michael Jordan and Lebron James have in common? They’re all incredibly successful, hard-working and geniuses in their field, but many people don’t know that they all practice meditation. Oprah said that meditation has made her “1,000 times better”. Michael Jordan and Lebron James, both famous athletes, practiced meditation to sharpen focus and improve concentration. Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, was a well-known meditation practitioner. As stated by his biographer Walter Isaacson, “Your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It's a discipline; you have to practice it.”

BABY COMPANY, THE BABY SPECIALIST IS NOW OPEN AT SM MEGAMALL

Baby shopping! It's one thing to get excited about when you're expecting. I remember way back when I was pregnant with Sofi and the time I gave birth to her, my hubby always joked that there's no trip to the mall or supermarket without buying something for Sofi. May it be clothes, toys, shoes or anything just for her, hehe! I don't know if anyone can relate but there's something fulfilling when you shop for your kids. And now that we'll have a 2nd baby this coming October, I am excited for our upcoming baby shopping, hehe! But this time I made a list for our needs. It's hard to focus when you're already inside the store. Haha! With so many cutesy stuff, it is easy to lose track on what we really need. And of course, as a Mom we want what's best for our child, right? You can say that I am brand conscious when it comes to baby stuff. I want top of the line brands that can cater to my child's need yet affordable. A brand that offers wide variety of products yet produces excellent quality without compromising my child's health.

And speaking of baby shopping, we recently attended the opening of Baby Company! The 62nd store is located at the 2nd floor of Building A, SM Megamall.

ASUS ZENVOLUTION LAUNCHES ZENFONE 3 SERIES + SPECS AND PRICES

I'm a fan of Asus Zenfone Series since I had my hands on their Zenfone Selfie last year. And after a few months, I had the Asus Zenfone Laser and the 2 are now part of my online life (You may read my hands-on review and experience with my Asus Zenfone Laser HERE). So imagine my happiness that Asus released the much-awaited, highly anticipated Zenfone 3 series that promised to be bigger and better! And I had the chance to see them up close during the Philippine launch of ASUS Zenvolution held at Sofitel Philippine Plaza where they unveiled the all-new ZenFone 3 Deluxe, Zenfone 3 Ultra, and Zenfone 3.

THE COFFEE BEAN AND TEA LEAF® INVITES YOU TO VISIT THE KIDDIE ENTERPRISE FAIR

  At a time when the local economy is considered fertile ground for business, many Filipinos are seizing the opportunity to build their own enterprises. Technology now allows for individuals to buy and sell products from the convenience of their own smartphones, information is readily available on the internet, and millenials are more assertive about their individual capacities and proactive in achieving their dreams. 

As we continue to work towards a greater country, it is not only critical that we ride trends as they come; it is also very integral to inculcate in every Filipino fundamental values that will aid the growth of our nation. This foundation can, and should be, built early on in the life of an individual. 

With this in mind, Brew Your Best Year, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®'s community for encouraging customers to be the best versions of themselves, put together a Business Bootcamp for Kids. Designed to teach kids the basics of business in an interactive and experiential way, it is a two-part activity that aspires to mold the youth into becoming the next generation of entrepreneurs who will continue to pave the way for a stronger economy. 


US BASED VENTURA FOODS EXPANDS TO PHILIPPINES, ASIA PACIFIC REGION

If you go to a restaurant in the United States there is a good chance that you would be eating a Ventura foods product.

Ventura Foods is a leading manufacturer of custom and branded oil, shortening, margarine, mayonnaise, sauce and dressing in the United States. The company currently supplies many Quick Service and Fast Casual Restaurants in the United States and many other countries around the world.

This is welcome news to the food service and restaurant industry, which is experiencing robust growth, and demands high quality products to offer a public with increasingly discriminating tastes. Ventura held a successful exhibit at the recently concluded WOFEX (World Food Expo) in August 2016 at the World Trade Center Manila where clients were able to sample the kind of products the company can offer. 

THE COFFEE BEAN AND TEA LEAF® INVITES YOU TO #SOLARSATURDAYS

To have a home that nurtures growth and development, and is safe, is the inherent right of every individual. And yet, with majority of the Philippine population living below the poverty line, this is a fundamental right that is not obtained by many. A great number of Filipinos struggle without a permanent roof under their heads to call their home, or do have a home yet is lacking in the basic amenities that would provide them an adequate standard of living, such as electricity. Without light in every Filipino family’s home, numerous facets of their lives are affected. That is why, when we give them light, in many ways, we believe we give them back their lives.
                                                                                                       
Recognizing the contribution of light in every individual’s quality of life, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® celebrated Earth Day by partnering with Liter of Light, a global, grassroots movement committed to providing affordable, sustainable light to people with limited or no access to electricity. Customers of all ages acted as solar engineers by building their own solar-powered lamps for a day, in the hopes of giving the precious gift of light to those in need.
