ASUL: Reviving the Blue in Pasig River Through Music

To make Pasig River blue again, waters clear enough to reflect the blue skies above it—this is the vision that led NCCA, PRRC, and PETA to come together and create Taga-Alog 2019, a campaign that aims to voice awareness on environmental issues through the use of the arts. Taga-Alog, literally shakers, is inspired by the old Tagalog term for “people from the ford.” With this, the campaign wants to build a community of River Warriors—ambassadors who share the campaign’s values of environmental awareness and responsibility for the rehabilitation of the Pasig River.

After a series of efforts and activities throughout the year, Taga-Alog concludes with ASUL: The Taga-Alog 2019 Grand Concert held on November 9, 2019 at Rizal High School, Pasig City. Together with 4000 passionate people who gathered to support the event, the culminating concert hosted by Pepe Herrera and Yesh Burce celebrated the fruits of its cause through a night of music and commitment.

ASUL: The Taga-Alog 2019 Grand Concert was made possible through the support of the local government of Pasig City. “Hindi lang ito tungkol sa kasiyahan, kung hindi sa pag-raise ng awareness sa Ilog Pasig,” Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto said in his opening remarks.

Advocating through the arts

Among the main highlights of the event was the awarding of the winning entries from the various capacity-building activities for different artistic channels that Taga-Alog and its stakeholders had hosted.

ASUL The 2019 Taga-Alog Grand Concert

Wisik Short Film Making Workshop awarded the first place to “Kung Hindi Ikaw” by Royce Divine Oficial, Jessie Stephen Guevara, and Misty Shane Eneria for Public Service Announcement Category. Coming in on second place was “Hatol” by Kristel Joyce Micael and Marjorie Marciano, and on third place was “Eco Basura” by Jhon Rheymel Lunes, Queenie Valdoz, Sandra Aguzar, Joseph Aquino, and Shiela Marie Salas.

“Himlayan” by Godwin Emmanuel and Benj L. Solania tops the competition’s Creative Category. “Obra” by Mary Franz D.R. Salazar, Emman Olasiman, Janaya Danielle Parungao, Ervin Miranda, and Sofia Chantal Perez won 2nd place while Geoffrey Jules N. Solidum and Christine Jane B. Almira’s “Tinig Ni Pasig” placed third.

Gian Lorenz M. Violago’s “Pinta” won the Audience Choice Award.

TampisAwit PhilPop Song Writing Competition 1st placer Suzanne Q. Samson showcased her musical masterpiece “Ilog Pasig Laban” live on stage with a powerful performance that was arranged by veteran songwriter Jungee Marcelo.

“Bangon, Ilog” written by Gaerard Allen de Leon and Rica Jane U. Francisco and “Kayang Kaya” by Randy Quisora Pusing won 2nd and  3rd place respectively.

The piece “Patuloy” by Paul Arcega was hailed Maynilad Audience Choice Winner.

For the literary arts, Khamille Anne Linsag of Davao City bagged the first place for Lagaslas Children Story Writing Workshop Competition with her story “Budi.”

The winners received special Ipo trophies from Maynilad.

United with Music

True to the campaign’s advocacy of utilizing arts as platform of promoting environmental awareness, everyone’s commitment and oneness was strengthened as different performers light up the night with their melodies.

Taga-Alog ambassadors Noel Cabangon, Aicelle Santos, and Ben&Ben shared their talents through songs that went right through the hearts of the listeners. Other performers who supported the cause, including Gloc-9, KE, Talahib People’s Band, Pasig City Band, and singers and dancers from PETA, also made the musical moment special.

Everyone is a River Warrior

Everyone stood up and raised their right hand as Taga-Alog’s Project Director Mr. Raul Alfonso lead the oath taking of the River Warriors. Within the commitment setting is the enumeration of Taga-Alog’s signature campaign—the 6Rs of caring for the environment: refuse, reuse, reduce, recycle, respect the environment, and rehabilitation through the arts.

Ambassadors Noel Cabangon and Aicelle Santos also shared some ways everyone can do to help on the Pasig River’s rehabilitation. One of which is minimizing the consumption of single-use plastics by bringing one’s own utensils and tumblers especially when going out. The ambassadors also encouraged everyone to speak up and step forward if they witness activities that can harm the environment.

“Dapat lahat tayo, maging ambassador. Lahat tayo magpamulat sa bawat isa at magtulung-tulong para sa rehabilitasyon ng Pasig River at kapaligiran natin sa kabuuan,” Taga-Alog’s ambassadress Aicelle Santos said.

ASUL The 2019 Taga-Alog Grand Concert

Taga-Alog believes that the Pasig River is very alive, and with the 6Rs, it will someday be that same old beautiful river across the metro where children can swim and fish can live in.

“May ningning na, mayroon nang sigla, may mga parte na na malinis, at tuluy-tuloy naman ang rehabilitasyon. Bilang isang ambassador, nais ko pong ipamahagi sa mga tao na mayroon po talagang pag-asa ang Ilog Pasig,” Noel Cabangon assures everyone.

ASUL The 2019 Taga-Alog Grand Concert

With timeless platforms such as the arts, Taga-Alog’s advocacy not only breathes life to the revival of the Pasig River, but also inspires many Filipinos to stand as one in conserving the beauty of our natural resources.

Women empowerment with INEX Active

A new line of workout gear, INEX ACTIVE, was launched last October 23, 2019 at the Mindful Movement Asia Pilates Studio in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig through an invigorating Pilates session headed by Mindful Movement Asia Pilates Studio General Manager Ken Colubio and Pilates coach Regina Del Rosario with INEX ACTIVE Founder and daughter of Senator Pia Cayetano, Maxine Sebastian and Managing Partner Juancho Palacios.

“INEX is short for inexorable which means unstoppable and relentless as we want the name itself to be empowering. We wanted the logo to mean something, so we chose the wolf and the moon. The wolf symbolizes personal power and all that is INEXorable in every one of us; the moon is a symbol of female strength. They say when the moon is full, women are in their highest point energetically. So, we’re hoping that by wearing INEX, women will be able to bring that feeling with them,” – according to Maxine Sebastian.

INEX Active

The event was also graced by notable personalities like Sen. Pia Cayetano, beauty queen-turned image consultant Abbygale Arenas-De Leon, Ms. Earth 2015 Angela Ong, model TV-host Kelly Misa to name a few; and they had the privilege to try and enjoy the newest INEX activewear styles.

The seamless structure of INEX ACTIVE sportswear is mainly made up of nylon which is soft as silk. It is also breathable, durable and odor-inhibiting in which it wicks sweat from your skin to fabric’s surface where it can evaporate. They are available in the sweetest pastels to the most energizing neons.

INEX Active

INEX ACTIVE is passionate about finding fresh ways for women to express themselves through their activewear and ultimately sharing the joy of an active lifestyle. They are big believers in self-acceptance and self-expression. This is why they aim to provide a variety of styles that complement every body type and to encourage women expressing themselves and embrace what makes them unique.

Another core values INEX ACTIVE want to share to their customers is “It’s Cool 2 Care”. They are committed to slowly but surely shifting to a more sustainable business model starting with their packaging options in which their customer can choose between their reusable pouches and their 100% compostable packaging.

INEX activewear is available online at inexactive.com. You can also follow them on their Instagram and facebook account at @inexactive to keep up to date!

Introducing Keepr: the first app-based full-service storage solution in the Philippines

provider in Metro Manila! Available now on the App Store and Google Play, Keepr’s mobile app allows you to securely store and monitor your most valuable possessions without having to leave the house! Prices start at just PHP 449.00 a month.

Keepr: An Extension of Your Home

Metro Manila is one of the most crowded cities in the world, with a population density of 20,785 persons per square kilometer. Combined with the rising costs of living, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find spacious housing in Metro Manila alone. Personal and storage space is fast becoming a valuable resource. Because of this, people regularly look for ways to free up space and bring out the beauty in their homes that are otherwise covered by too many objects.

Enter Keepr: a full-service solution to all your storage needs! Available on Apple and Android, Keepr allows you to clean up without having to give anything away. Keepr adapts to your personal needs by combining high-level security, strategic logistics, and modern technology into an easy-to-use app.

KEEPR5

“Vertical living has been growing over the past few years – with an estimated 7,000 new units churned out by developers annually. This has mostly been due to rising real estate prices and scarcity of land within proximity of business districts. Office spaces and residential condo units have been getting smaller and smaller and prices get steeper as household consumption has been steadily increasing,” shares Keepr founder, Anna Moncupa. “We’ve been buying and putting stuff into our homes, and we’re running out of space. We’re basically consuming more but living smaller. Keepr was born out of this fundamental need for space within the city.”

How Does Keepr Work?

  1. Create an Account. After downloading Keepr Storage PH, simply follow the format to create your account through e-mail, Facebook, or Google.
  2. Schedule Your Free Assessment. Enter your mobile number and Keepr’s Storage Expert will get in touch with you right away. This initial assessment will provide our team with the necessary information to determine which monthly plan best suits your storage needs.
  3. Schedule Your Pick-Up. Once you’ve subscribed to a plan, you can now schedule a pick-up by booking an appointment. A Storage Specialist will be on hand to guide you through the process, while Keepr’s team will expertly wrap and pack your valuables in the most efficient and space-saving way possible. Packing services start at just PHP 150.00 per hour, per personnel.
  4. Manage Your Inventory. Keepr’s warehouse is equipped with 24-hour security and CCTV. The constant attention to your personal belongings extends to the access you have right from the app itself. Every item stored with Keeper is photographed, tagged with a QR code, and uploaded to your account. This provides you with constant access and a host of features that allows you to manage and
    customize your storage.
  5. Schedule Your Delivery. Want something back? Just select the item you need, set a location, and simply schedule the delivery date for a flat rate of just PHP 500.00! When you’re done, our team will return and pick-up the empty Keepr bins for free.

Keepr: The Only Storage Solution You Will Ever Need

“Most storage options cater to bigger corporations with the means and resources to manage their own inventory and logistics, whereas Keepr was really made for SMEs, growing families, and busy individuals,” adds Moncupa. “We’ve combined cutting edge technology and customer-centered ideologies to provide hassle-free storage to the everyday city dweller. Everything can be done online through our website or via app – convenience was one of our main goals when creating our system. It’s really about having a full life and creating more room for the things that truly matter.”
