Robinsons Supermarket: Explore Wellness with a Travel Healthy Lifestyle

Posted on

Two goals I have this year are a healthier lifestyle and more travel adventures. So far I’ve been able to slim down a tiny bit. As for travel I have a couple planned with the kids this summer. There’s so much to look forward to and I’m excited that Robinsons Supermarket is exploring wellness with a travel healthy lifestyle promo.

This year’s “Route to Wellness” campaign officially launched and had a fun theme of travel and adventure. “Explore Wellness”, the first of five promo events kicked off at the Eastwood City Mall Open Park.

To further celebrate wellness, customers can get a 3-style bag for free for a minimum single receipt of Php3,000, inclusive of PHP 500.00 worth of participating products from Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola, Kojie-San, Belo, Nestle, Selecta, CDO Foodsphere, Splash Corporation, Unilab and Cosmetique Asia.

One of the most exciting experiences of my blogging journey is the chance to be featured on Umagang Kay Ganda. I shared my thoughts on the Explore Wellness event, showed some of the games I got to play and went on a tour of the supermarket.

It was definitely a memorable experience and had me feeling like a celebrity with a camera crew and lighting equipment as we went around the venue.

Alongside fellow blogger Jen Aspacio of Marriage and Beyond we showed how fun health and wellness can be for the whole family.

Posted on

If you can’t get enough of crystal-clear selfies and brilliant night shots but are on a budget, you can now avail of the OPPO A39.

The OPPO A39 features a 5 MP-front camera which can capture flawless-looking selfies even in less than ideal lighting situations.


“OPPO’s smartphones have always stood out for their outstanding photography performance, powerful hardware, and elegant design. OPPO’s latest smartphone, the A39, is no exception,” said OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng. “The A39’s availability here in the Philippines is great news for those of us who can’t get enough of selfies and creative snaps.”

Seamless shots

Though the A39’s 5-MP front camera has less megapixels compared to OPPO’s other smartphones, its extra large 1.4um pixels and ¼-inch sensor has higher light sensitivity and frame rate to capture crisp pictures and videos with reduced noise.

The smartphone’s selfie camera is also equipped with the latest iteration of its beautifying app, the Beautify 4.0, which enhances the skin and facial features through seven beautify levels, two skin modes, and upgraded photo-processing algorithms.

Its 13-MP rear camera captures 50-MP ultra-high definition images with its extra-large 1/3.06 inch sensor, which maximizes the amount of captured light for brilliant low-light and nighttime shots.

Powerful performance

The A39’s 720P HD screen has automatic brightness adjustments and high contrast to keep the eyes more comfortable. Watching movies or playing games is also a more vivid experience on the A39 thanks to the all-new Color0S 3.0, which provides seamless performance, offers more memory, and saves more power.

When the ColorOS 3.0’s power-optimization features work with the A39’s 2900 mAh lithium polymer battery and MT6750 processor, the phone reduces power consumption by up to 35 percent and allows up to more than thirteen hours of constant use.

The 3GB RAM and Octa-core 64-bit processor further enhanced its performance to allow smoother multitasking and switching between apps.

Beautiful design

Aside from its powerful hardware and software, the A39 also stands out for its unibody design that gives users a comfortable and effortless grip. The phone’s 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 Screen has four precisely rounded corners and a thin lightweight frame that rests comfortably in the hand. The phone’s magnesium-aluminum alloy body also retains durability though it merely weighs 147 grams.

In the Philippines, the New Balance 247 Sport will be available at New Balance (Glorietta), The Athlete’s Foot (Glorietta), Commonwealth (SM Aura Premier), Sole Academy (Bonifacio High Street), SneakPeek (Shangri-La), and Capital (UP Town Center).

The New Balance 247 offers a new look, feel and fit, but draws inspiration from iconic New Balance models to remain grounded in the brand DNA. Tapping into New Balance’s reputation as a premier performance brand, the 247 Sport combines an engineered mesh upper with a neoprene sock construction for a performance inspired technical look, fit and feel. A reflective welded N logo, reflective collar strap and rubber “sport” tongue label were borrowed from New Balance performance running, but designed for a 247 lifestyle. Inspiration from heritage models includes the asymmetrical detail on the toe vamp that is a subtle reference to the 1300; a collar strap design taken from the 574 and 576; and, a sleeker more lightweight version of the 998 midsole.
