Style and Comfort with UNIQLO Kids Collection

Posted on

Jael and I went shopping! Surprisingly, Jael likes to shop for clothes and he was game to check out the different styles and designs (with running in between and hiding in shelves). We went to SM Megamall to check out the UNIQLO Kids Collection where there were rows and rows of shirt designs from Star Wars to Toy Story to Marvel.

The UNIQLO kids line is designed to let children move freely anywhere they are and whatever they do which Jael needs with all the running, jumping, hopping and whatever movement he can think of. The collection is made with high-quality materials giving kids ultimate comfort, perfect for recreational games and active sports.

The latest addition to their kids collection is the Finding Dory Graphic T-Shirts for infants. We caught a screening of Finding Dory which Jael said was better than the first. Hmmm, I think he’s one of the rare ones that think that. Finding Nemo is unbeatable but Finding Dory comes in at a close second.

Bright, bold prints are what I look for in a t-shirt design. I like Jael to stand out from the crowd so I can easily spot him. They also look great in pictures which Jael asks for believe it or not.

We had quite a time choosing as there were so many designs to choose from.

It came down to these three t-shirt designs. The Hulk shirt looks plain from the front but it actually has a gigantic Hulk design on the back. Star Wars, well, it’s Star Wars enough said.

And the winner is… He chose this design because the t-shirt glows in the dark! UNIQLO shirts now have more reflector shirt designs which helps parents like me with overly active kids keep track of where they are. Of course, this only works in the evening.

“We at UNIQLO believe that kids should always wear clothing with features to keep them safe all the time,” says Geraldine Sia, General Manager of UNIQLO Philippines. “Our ultimate goal is a stylish line with fun design and practical functionality.”

Trying it on for size. Looks great, right?

Here’s Jael at it again, hiding where he can. Honestly, this kid is going to give me a full on heart attack one day!

UNIQLO Kids Collection offers a full range of everyday LifeWear essentials which include pants, innerwear hoodies and more. See how well Jael blended in there? 🙂

Quezon City’s Newest Business Center: Vertis North

Posted on

We have central business districts in major cities from Makati to Ortigas and BGC and now Quezon City will have it’s own business hub. It won’t just be purely business though with residential units and a lifestyle mall.

Vertis North, a City Center that nurtures and inspires enterprise and activity

Since its founding in 1939, Quezon City has been the nucleus of northern Metro Manila. Through it flow business channels and industries while commercial and residential properties continuously sprout to suit its urban dwellers.

To further establish the city as the North’s melting pot of business, social, and cultural affairs, Ayala Land, together with the National Housing Authority, developed Vertis North—a 30-hectare, master planned, mixed-use, and sustainable development, envisioned as the City Center that nurtures and inspires enterprise and activity.

Big-city living at the heart of Quezon City

Located at the convergence point of key Metro Manila thoroughfares—intersecting EDSA, North and Quezon Avenues—Vertis North brings destinations closer to home. It provides optimum connectivity with seamless transport system links accessible to and from various City Centers.

Vertis North_Aerial_from EDSA

Catering to every form of enterprise, Vertis North provides one-stop business centers, tax incentives, and skills enhancement programs. Two high-rise corporate centers—each about 20 floors high—offering distinct work spaces with an integrated parking area, will be built to support 24/7 tenant operations, ready for occupancy within the year.

A premium retail block will also emerge as the convergence center of residents and office workers. This soon-to-be preferred lifestyle mall will have over 200 top-tier retail brands and dining options located in specialized zones. A two-hectare Vertis Central Park also serves as a welcoming urban oasis for casual sitting, strolling, and recreational activities.

Symbolizing the complete, big-city lifestyle that Vertis North offers is the single-tower hotel development of Seda Vertis North. It  will be the largest Seda Hotel and the most spacious in Quezon City with 438 rooms and a grand ballroom, equivalent to five large function rooms. It has a cozy roof deck bar which offers delicious food, beverage, and a marvelous view of the city skyline.

Vertis North’s line-up of residential amenities starts with Alveo’s High Park—a 35-story, high-end residential condominium with about 642 units just across the Vertis Park expanse. Located at the heart of the compound, High Park lets owners enjoy refreshing views of the CBD and conveniently walk to an array of facilities—shopping, recreational, and business—for an exclusive and distinctive living experience.

More options come with Avida Towers Vita and Sola. A three-tower residential development, Vita offers new beginnings to young families, newly-married couples, and young professionals. Residents can also have easy access to the surrounding establishments through a shared underground parking podium. Sola is a high-rise condominium that offers life at the center of big city-living, with the work and play balance of the basic urban lifestyle, at an affordable price.

Embedded within the City Center is a green urban core that promotes responsible living and sustainable solutions. A network of integrated underground parking allows less vehicular traffic on the street for pedestrians to enjoy Vertis North’s pervasive parks and green architecture, while bike paths and a bike-sharing program push the pedals of an energy-efficient transport around the district. As a solution to urban flooding, the latest storm water management technology is also applied with the use of infiltration stripes, slowing down, capturing, detaining, and filtering flood water runoffs.

More than becoming Quezon City’s newest central business district, Vertis North brings together unique land uses as an enterprising district with a dynamic growth engine. With an inspiring new address that brings together everything great about living and working in QC, it is a place that calls out to those who plan to take the big-city lifestyle to the next level.

Greenpeace busts myths on Renewable Energy with The Solar Rooftop Challenge

Greenpeace launches its Solar Rooftop Challenge at the Bonfocaio High Street on June 15, 2016. Greenpeace

Greenpeace launches its Solar Rooftop Challenge at Bonifacio High Street on June 15, 2016.

Renewable Energy advocates (from left) Illac Diaz , Jun Sabayton, Jasmin Curtis-Smith and Saab Magalona graced the launching of the Greenpeace Solar Rooftop Challenge  at the Bonifacio High Street on June 15, 2016. The Solar Rooftop Challenge is a massive information campaign that highlights the potentials of producing solar energy in the Philippines. It creates a platform for young and urban Filipinos to join the discussion on renewable energy, particularly the use of solar energy.

The Solar Rooftop Challenge highlights the benefits of using solar and busts misguided notions that hinder individuals and companies from taking it up. By showcasing existing solar rooftop installations of urban middle class households, celebrities, churches, schools, government buildings and private establishments, and through sharing empowering stories of people who have joined the solar rooftop revolution in the country awareness of solar energy is

The launch event featured informative lectures and discussions by Obet Verzola, author of the book Crossing Over: the Energy Transition to Renewable Energy and Executive Director of Center for Renewable Electricity Strategies (CREST), and Dann Diez, Executive Director of Sustainable Energy and Enterprise Development for Communities, who presented data and experiences showing that solar energy installation is affordable, accessible and more cost-effective in the long run.

The launch also unveiled the video series JuanaSolar Busts a Myth in Minutes, which features celebrity advocates Saab Magalona, Yam Concepcion and Dingdong Dantes busting the myths surrounding the use of solar energy. The videos debunk the myths that solar energy is expensive, unreliable, impractical, uneconomic, and beyond the reach of the average Filipino.

The Solar Rooftop Challenge also happens at the same time that the Philippine government is starting its comprehensive review of the country’s energy policy in order to reduce dependence on coal and come up with a national framework for a just transition to renewable energy and a low-carbon economic pathway.

By telling empowering stories, the Solar Rooftop Challenge showed that the solar revolution is already happening in many parts of the country – from a solar-powered church, to solar-powered schools, malls, and many households. It aims to serve as a platform for the thousands of Filipinos who have already embraced the solar revolution to show and tell their stories as well as exchange and share ideas and information to persuade other people who are keen on taking up the challenge of producing their own clean and renewable electricity from their rooftops.
