Dots And Pixels finally opens its doors at the 5/F of SM Megamall Fashion Hall and it is my first time to attend an opening of a printing shop, and so I thought. Well dear readers they are not the usual printing shop that we go to, they specialize in Tarpaulins and other printing needs like posters, photos, business cards, event shirts, name it they can do it. But what interests me more was they can actually do stickers, not the ordinary ones, stickers that can be seen both ways or through the glass and the one thing I am truly excited about is the kind of high end stickers they can actually create for walls. You see in one of my previous post, I shared our new project that will be up in 5 years, and as early as now I've been looking into furniture, paints and what nots for our future home and I am just so glad that Dots And Pixels can help me in the future like "in 5 years" lol!


Meet Jengjeng, COO (child of owner haha!) she is the one who is really into this art type of business, we talked about their different services like if you plan to create a business and you are unsure on how it would look like, or wanted a theme for a room but because you have limited space you have uncertainties, Dots and Pixels could actually help you with anything, all you have to do is drop by at their shop and they'll help us take care of our worries.

So now my dear friends, you know where to go... Dots & Pixels 😃

One knows that the Christmas season is upon us when the radio starts playing Yuletide songs, malls are installed with holiday decorations, and people start making Christmas gift lists.

Christmas is all about making memories. With FUJIFILM’s instax cameras, it is now possible to preserve them and have physical copies of moments spent with friends and family.

Fujifilm brand ambassador Bea Alonzo knows the importance of spreading holiday cheer and sharing her blessings. On screen, she makes it a point to always deliver a good performance. Away from the spotlight, she is a great believer that you best learn about the world when you travel. Bea comes from a small family, with only one sibling but like most Filipino families, she has uncles and aunts and nephews and nieces. She has explored the many beautiful spots in the country with them.

But when Bea wants time for herself, she goes on travel adventures on her own, solo flight. In all these little expeditions, she never forgets to bring her FUJIFILM mirrorless cameras with her, particularly the X-A2 and X-A3. The X-A2 and X-A3 are both lightweight and thus easy to carry around. “A camera phone is not enough,” says Bea. “Tayong mga tao nakakalimot. Maganda na may isang bagay na nagre-remind sa atin ng mga magagandang alaala.”

The X-A2 allows users to capture important moments with superb image quality that FUJIFILM’s X-Series is known for while the X-A3 comes with a retro design that is fashionable and a hit with the younger set.

Recently, Bea has grown to love the instax cameras. “I am learning to appreciate scrapbooking,” Bea shares. “Or I can hang the prints on the walls of my room or I can deposit them in a box.”

With the launch of FUJIFILM’s Photo Diary, Bea can look forward to having her photos gathered together into an album, properly selected and labeled, and accomplished in minutes. Developed through FUJIFILM’s Image Organizing Technology, it makes possible owning your own coffee table book instead of the traditional photo album. It is not bulky and can be tagged along everywhere, a constant reminder of moments well spent.

With Christmas fast approaching, you can take Bea’s word for it. It is best to give our loved ones gifts that we ourselves thought of and spent time working on.

Try the following DIY Christmas gift ideas that Bea highly recommends:

Make a calendar. Use your instax to take snaps of whatever catches your fancy or moments that are fleeting. You can also print them using the instax Share SP-2 printer. The Share SP-2 lets you edit your photos first before you print them. The next thing to do is to attach the instax prints to a store-bought calendar. Also try to write on the margins of every page memorable lines from popular Bea Alonzo films like “One More Chance” and “A Second Chance.”

Mark it with a bookmark. Books don’t grow old. They function not only as a physical copy of stories with characters, lines, and moments that we carry with us as we go through our lives. If the person you’re thinking of giving a present to is a big Paulo Coelho fan like Bea, why not take a photo of a river (one of the Portuguese writer’s books is entitled “By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept”) with your instax and embellish it with the print?

Create a wine tasting journal with instax photos. Wines are never missing at Christmas parties. Start by choosing well-loved wines. Take photos of bottles, labels, etc. with your instax. Attach the photos to pages in a notebook, and write down flavors, aromas, vintage and regions.

Delight with a hanging mobile with instax photos. Liven up the room of a gift recipient with a hanging mobile decorated with instax photos. Add text and embellishments on the photos as you wish, and then clip or tape the photos to strings. Tie the strings to the sticks and hang the completed mobile from the ceiling.

Vitacubes vitamin-candy had a grand family day event held at the Active Fun, BGC and of course our family is present. The event was attended by mostly Mommy Bloggers like me who is also curious and excited at the same time. It was my first encounter with Vitacubes and I was immediately convinced that this could be a good alternative or substitute for candies or junk food.

Vitacubes is packed with vitamins and minerals, it has different fruity flavors that kids will surely enjoy and it is very soft and chewable I would not be afraid that my toddler might accidentally choke on it. So anyway, we had an afternoon packed with activities for kids such as games, magic show and a one hour pass to play at Active Fun, indeed it is a bonding day for families, thanks to Vita Cubes. By the way Vita Cubes pack comes in a pack where it is individually wrapped per piece and the usual snack type packaging, get these awesome snacks for your kids in leading groceries and supermarkets nationwide.

We all know too well that the holiday season can be problematic amid higher demand for consumer products and the capability to distribute them on time.

Fortunately, this can be addressed by a few logistics providers that can help move things around the metro.

Noel Abelardo, Head of Business Program, said: “We want to help move things faster and more efficiently in Metro Manila this holiday season. Transportify will help business customers and even

individuals manage their logistics needs so they can focus on things that really matter to them. Our value proposition for on-demand logistics needs is better than what is available in the market."

Colgate-Palmolive Philippines celebrates 90 years of operations in the country, providing generations of Filipinos with quality brands for oral care, personal care and home care such as Colgate, Palmolive, Tender Care, Gard, Axion and Ajax.

The Palmolive Company Philippines was established in 1926 with an office in the Binondo district of Manila with just five employees. Products sold during those days included Pompeia cosmetics, Octagon laundry powder and Crystal White laundry bar.

It merged with Peet Brothers the following year and with Colgate Company in 1928. Popular products such as Colgate Ribbon dental cream and Cashmere Bouquet toiletries were added to the product range along with Palmolive soaps, pushing accelerated growth for the next few years. Products at that time were delivered to stores by carabao or horse-drawn carts.

In 1941, during World War II, invading soldiers sealed the office and looted the warehouse. Loyal employees were instructed by their imprisoned manager to preserve company records. Two employees managed to enter the office but couldn't escape with the ledgers.

They ended up manually copying all entries, word for word, for over a week. With records intact, the company was able to collect all receivables from insurance after the war and resume business.

Soon after, Ajax powder cleanser was introduced to the market and, in 1949, the company was incorporated as Colgate-Palmolive Philippines, Inc.
