Tuesday, October 20, 2020


I can no longer remember when I was diagnosed with diabetes –it’s been that long. And if you’d ask, Yes, I wasn’t monitoring my glucose levels back then. I would only visit my doctor whenever I would be available. My mom also has diabetes and she would prick my finger to check my glucose and push me to go see the doctor together with her. After getting the list for my meds, I buy them, take them religiously and that's it. I am such a lazy lady and stubborn. And as they say, there will come a time when you'll reach a certain age when you will finally want to be physically active, eat and be healthy. It was June 2019 when my husband and I made a decision to enroll in a fitness club so we can live more actively and healthier and be able to cope with our little boy's growing up needs. Everything was going well, our weight started to drop slowly, we still ate what we wanted but in moderation. In short, we were changing our lifestyle and  I was also improving on my dancing skills J We went to visit mom and she would still randomly prick me to check my glucose and she was so happy that I was on track.



2020 came and until now we are still in a pandemic situation, we can't visit mom and she can't visit us too. The fitness club needed to close, and we are just doing some physical activities at home but sometimes we feel too lazy to move because we are working during the night shift. And because we are at home, food is life! We actually have a weighing scale to check that we don’t go back to our previous weights before this fitness journey. Everything was good but I wasn’t sure about my glucose levels – I just took medicine. 


With all these happening, I was able to try a product from Abbott making diabetes management easier. Abbott was very generous in terms of educating me about the product through an onboarding session for them to explain what the new product is all about. 

The new product I am referring to is the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system. I am sharing with you the benefits and things we need to know about FreeStyle Libre. 




The Experience:

When the sensor was finally attached to the back of my upper arm, I was a bit cautious that it might fall. Every time I move, I had to check the sensor from time to time. It is true, it stays even when taking a bath so unless it is removed with force, the sensor will stay on your arm. (Here's a tip, wash the area of your arm first with plain soap and let it dry before attaching the sensor.)

 






Reading my glucose levels was a lot easier and fun! Even my little boy knows how to operate the reader and pretends to be my doctor, checking my reading every time I wake up. It gave me more inspiration too to watch out my eating habits, made me decide to move whenever my readings started to spike, and it made me conscious of my whole daily routine. It was so convenient that after like a few days, it already became normal for me to check my glucose reading anytime, anywhere. 








After 14 days, it was time to remove the sensor. The reader, was a small touchscreen device but stored a lot of information such as:

-Graphs of my glucose readings 
-My average glucose reading and whenever I am within, below or above my target glucose range 

-How many days I have been using the sensor

And after my 14 days, all I need to do is purchase a new sensor and use the same reader to continue tracking my results. But the best part is, all these information can also be seen online through LibreView. All you have to do is sign up for free, download and follow the installation prompts. Make sure you have the reader and cable with you because you would need to connect it to be able to get all the information. Just follow the on-screen instructions to upload your data. 



After the transfer, watch all your information unfold and this was truly magical for me! I saw my 14-day results on a daily or weekly basis. It had graphs and very detailed information of my glucose readings and I was totally amazed. The best part is I could share the information with my doctor remotely for him to assess if my medicines were doing me good. This was very helpful especially during this time of pandemic. I was afraid to go out and have myself checked in clinics or hospitals because I don't want to be exposed. So, having the FreeStyle Libre was the best solution I had, and it is available online through Lazada and in selected Mercury Drugstore branches. For those who think it is pricey, yes it can be but for me, it was worth it after all the information and the times I got to scan which made me worry less if I was on track. It actually changed my eating habits as well - just eating in portions rather than my old routine of eating to my heart’s desire. 




This is my overall data and can also be categorized by week etc. It's all available for download

 

Overall experience was great, I would say if you can save up for a sensor, do so because I think eventually, you'll learn how to handle your routine. The reader is just a one-time buy and you can use it for all your succeeding sensors. For someone like me who has been avoiding checkup and routine finger pricking just because I was stubborn, the FreeStyle Libre was indeed of big help.

As the COVID-19 pandemic has crippled businesses across industries, this Filipino brand has found a silver lining—pushing through with an expansion plan despite challenging times.


Prime Global Corporation (PGC) is taking on the “new normal” with optimism as it leverages Filipinos’ rekindled love for home-cooking and the rise of the home-based food delivery business amid dine-out and movement restrictions to boost sales of its Barrio Fiesta products.

Adjusting to a changed food business landscape, Barrio Fiesta has recalibrated its sales approach, upping its online presence as it continues to diversify its product portfolio, from its top-selling shrimp paste to new sauces, spreads, dry mixes and snacks.


“Fortunately for the packaged food category, we are seeing growth opportunities still as people continue to remain at home, opting for home-cooked meals and seeing the rise of ‘home chefs.’ We anticipate that the ‘new normal’ will continue to bring about more interest, creativity and enthusiasm for lutong-bahay recipes, and we want to be there for them,” said Reychelle Ann Gigante, PGC Marketing Head.


Through its social media pages, Barrio Fiesta is providing Filipino cooks lutong-bahay recipes and tips, noting the many that are still locked down at home are shifting their budgets to home-cooked meals while small entrepreneurs have gone into the online food business in place of lost livelihood.


This is where PGC saw an opportunity to help while selling its products in the safest possible way: no on-site promotional events and mostly a virtual interface with its target market.



“All on-ground activities have been cancelled, current digital content efforts have been geared towards engaging our online audience with useful recipes and tips using our products, and recently we opened our Facebook page to online bulk orders for those who would be interested to resell Barrio Fiesta products within their community,” Gigante said.


PGC has also shifted to digital marketing, seeing greater spending on online promotional ventures as the pandemic continues.


At the same time, it maintains presence in physical stores—its primary trade channel—to cater to Filipinos who still opt to shop outside. Barrio Fiesta products are available in supermarkets, groceries, convenience stores, drug stores and sari-sari-stores.


While we very much acknowledge the important role that e-commerce has played during the new normal, we also understand that there is still a great need for general and modern trade or supermarkets and groceries and it is very much essential for us as well as it still caters to Filipinos who opt to shop in brick-and-mortar stores. For us, it won’t be one or the other, as this multi-channel availability will allow us to reach our customers in the most convenient way possible,” Gigante said.

 

PGC Executives

PGC counts on the Filipinos’ familiarity with its heritage products to remain as the go-to brand for staple condiments even amid the rise of artisanal, home-made brands, given the scope of its production and distribution reach.

 

“We are aware that there are small online entrepreneurs selling specialty or artisanal bagoong and condiments, and this just goes to show how huge and dynamic the food market is,” Gigante said. “As for specialty condiments, at the moment, Barrio Fiesta is the only brand able to produce and distribute its products at scale commercially, across local and international markets, while maintaining high quality and authentic taste, made possible with a strong business model.”


Barrio Fiesta commands a 65-percent market share of the local sautéed shrimp paste category and 95 percent of the international market 2019.


“Our goal this year is to further dominate the category in both domestic and international markets. And in the next three years, we aspire to be among the top local companies in the sauces, dressings, condiments and package foods categories,” said Vincent Ace Villa-Real, President and Chief Operating Officer of PGC.


“The Barrio Fiesta retail brand is one of the few remaining Filipino heritage brands whose equity can cut across the broad spectrum of the culinary and food industries. We intend to make the most of the equity. We can’t be a single product company; category expansion whether organic or thru external synergies is a given,” Villa-Real said.


The manufacturing business of Barrio Fiesta sautéed shrimp paste was acquired by the Ang-Hortaleza Corporation through a subsidiary in 2011. The brand is now under Prime Global Corporation, a manufacturing, marketing and distribution subsidiary company owned by the Hortaleza Corporation holding company.


Earlier this year, it released its own version of everyday condiments and snacks: the Barrio Fiesta Gourmet Series Patis (fish sauce), Barrio Fiesta Tubasuk (spiced sugar cane vinegar), Barrio Fiesta Crispy Joy Breading Mix, Barrio Fiesta Peanut Butter Spreads, Barrio Fiesta Chicken and Beef Broth Cubes, and Barrio Fiesta Jumbo Roasted Peanuts.


“We are optimistic because Barrio Fiesta is a very strong retail brand offering products with superior taste, quality and value supported by a vision and a business model that is anchored on strong fundamentals,” Villa-Real added.

Sagada Harvests PR



Two pesos a kilo for cabbage. Four pesos for cucumber.

After spending to bring their produce to the nearest vegetable trading post in the last week of July, Cordilleran farmers were given a cruel rate, crushing their hope of raising cash to buy seeds for the next harvest.

A Sad Story for New Gen Farmers

Shereen Umayat and Jessica Dapliyan, two young farmers from Sagada, had a cheaper option for their next maturing vegetables- let the plants rot in the farmland to stop having additional expenses.

Asked how much she has spent for her cucumber, Umayat computed it to be at least P40, 000.

While there are active programs like Sustainable Sagada and Rural Rising organized to help ease the situation, not all produce in the remote Mountain Province town can be accommodated.

Dapliyan, a former innkeeper who shifted to farming following travel bans, started giving away her cabbage produce for free in September after unsuccessful attempts to sell what her family has been working since community quarantine restrictions were implemented.



Trying the Metro Manila Market

For generations, farmers in Sagada and other towns of the Cordilleras have been trading in marketplaces within the mountainous region and going to the lowlands is not part of their regular routine. But as they run out of options, they are forced to seek help outside the highlands.

Tapping Metro Manila-based Cordillerans or Igorots was the first move. Upon learning about the crisis, Christian Aligo, a Marketing Communications practitioner living in Quezon City, started the “The Sagada Harvests Project” on Facebook.

With the assistance from Umayat, Menchie Buking of the Department of Agrarian Reform Mt. Province (DAR MP) and other concerned locals, The Sagada Harvests Project is able to sell out about three tons of produce in its first two runs.

Alongside Aligo are other Metro Manila-based Igorots including Luisa Gay Pugong, Jenny Lyn Likigan, Bing Podes Laguipen, and Hector Ngales who transformed themselves into vendors after their day job to help address the crisis.

Joining the force is the couple Atty. Pio and Noemie Jeanet Daoas who now spend their weekends on vegetables. With the help of dedicated riders, the couple deliver the goods within Taguig City at only P20.



A Trade Friendlier to Farmers

As agreed, it is the farmers who set the price of their produce. Currently in marketplaces, it is the multi-level middle men who dictate the price and get a bigger portion of it.

When the rate at the La Trinidad trading post for cabbage was P2 per kilo, The Sagada Harvests Project purchased the vegetable at P20 per kilo-- as dictated by the farmers.

To further assist the Igorot vendors, DAR’s Sagada Linksfarmers Consolidation Center opened its doors to help screen quality produce prior to shipping.

Recently, the regional office of the Department of Agriculture (DA) also offered transportation assistance to help lower expenses.

Meanwhile, local food producers Gabay Wines and Food Preserves and Masferre Country Inn & Restaurant have been doing experiments for delicate items like wild blueberry, wheat bread, and goat cheese products to check on the shelf-life of the products when offered in places with a warmer climate.

To know more about The Sagada Harvest Project and a list of Igorot vendors who directly source their goods from farmers, contact Aligo at 0956-174-8464 (Globe) or visit www.facebook.com/sagadaharvests now.

For the past 6 months or so, we have been trying to create a fun weekend for our family, the Pandemic has caused us and everyone to adjust our situations and plans, to work around on what we can and adapting to the new normal. Our weekend pre-pandemic would usually be going to church, strolling at the mall and playing on parks. All gone in an instant because of the outbreak, neveretheless we are thankful that we are safe, healthy, able to survive everyday and we get to keep our jobs working from home.

Staying at home made us discover and thibk of activities our family can do during the weekends. We love music and entertainment. While movies and Youtube helps, we still still feel that we can do more.

So here comes Wow! Fiesta Melody, this is the first time our little boy held a Microphone and experienced our favorite sport, "videoke/karaoke" lol! My husband who hates singing in public and in Karaoke parties now has been singing and browsing through the song book. I am amazed that one of the things I love is now a favorite activity of our family during the weekend.





The Wow! Fiesta is a complete package, it includes a Free Microphone, has unli-song expansion, thousands of built-in songs, in full HD, Multimedia and Car friendly. It is packed all in one and ready to go wherever and whenever you want to use it. 

This is a great bonding activity for the whole family, staying at home with some snacks and singing our hearts desire.

Hello, Media friends! TikTok officially launches in PH its latest campaign, "it Starts on TikTok," to celebrate the community, creators, and trends that influenced Pinoy pop culture. From the popular music we hear to the viral dance challenges, it all started on TikTok. elp us share this news today. Thank you! image.png FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Content Revolution disrupts Creative Economy & Pop Culture: How and Why it starts on TikTok MANILA, SEPTEMBER 11, 2020 - TikTok launches in the Philippines its latest campaign, “it starts on TikTok”, to celebrate the creators, community and culture on the platform that brought positivity and joy to life. The campaign is part of TikTok’s largest-ever global branding campaign that kicked off on August 18, 2020. Since TikTok’s launch, the platform has revolutionized content creation, laying the foundations for the rise of a new generation of creators that impacted pop culture and drove the country’s creative economy. “Everyone is a creator. Everyday, we create moments and shared experiences. These little moments are the ripples that are now making waves to our culture today. TikTok is a platform to capture, amplify, and magnify the unique and creative you,” says John Castro, User and Content Operations Manager, TikTok Philippines. Behind every viral video and top trend is a creator who brought a creation to life. As an idea catches on, so too does its impact across borders, cultures, languages, and communities. What begins as seconds of authentic creativity often turns into much more: careers blossom, memes develop, hobbies flourish, communities coalesce, and viral songs climb to the top of music charts. TikTok is a platform that brings joy and enriches your life. TikTok’s content, creativity, and creator-centric model, places every TikToker on a level playing field. Everyone has a chance to go viral as seen in the case of Tala that made TikTok a platform where the turning point to virality starts and happens. Charting the Origin of Tala Who would have thought a song that was released in January 2016 would make a comeback to become the Philippines’ 2020 pop culture anthem? Since the launch of Sarah Geronimo’s Tala, the song has been building up its momentum over the years. With its catchy lyrics and danceable choreography, it has always been a part of Filipino pop culture, especially in the LGBTIQ+ community. But come November 2019, the dance covers spread like wildfire until it saw the resurgence as the nation's newest dance craze. One of the earliest uploads of the song on TikTok is from user Glyds Soriano on November 26, 2019, which was basically a snippet from the original music video. Since then, TikTokers have been using the song for their own #talachallenge dance covers. Joining the challenge on December 27, 2019 , teen celebrity Vivoree also uploaded her own edit of the song which was eventually used by phenomenal star Maine Mendoza and commendable actor Arjo Atayde in the video that truly cemented Tala’s virality. To date, Maine and Arjo’s video remains as the top viewed content for the #talachallenge at 12.4M views. Tala - Sarah Geronimo officially became part of TikTok’s music library in January 2020. https://www.tiktok.com/@mainemendozaaa03/video/6778023462146542850 Creative Journeys that starts on TikTok For many creators in the Philippines and around the world, this online haven is TikTok.
