To the delight of thousands of Regine Velasquez-Alcasid fans, PLDT captures Asia’s songbird, and brings her to 5 malls across Manila to captivate the audience with her timeless voice.
I was able to catch her at the Robinson’s Manila Mall last June 20.
It is the second of a series of 5 FREE and open to the public Mall Tour of Regine. Fans wasted no time filling up Robinson’s Manila’s atrium to hear the songbird. It was packed!
It was so refreshing to hear her melodic yet powerful voice once again. It was refreshing and yet nostalgic to hear her sing popular Filipino ballads like Ikaw, Araw-Gabi , Falllin’, and made me marvel once again how beautiful Filipino music is.
It was a full concert as she serenaded the audience for a solid 1.5 hours. It was thrilling and F-U-N! She also sang current songs like the fun “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit and powerful “Titanium” and “Chandelier” by Sia Furler. As always, when the songs are at its hardest fans cannot contain the power and screams for more!
The first part of the concert had Regine impersonators – Regina, Ate Reg and Anton Diva – belting out Regine songs. They were soooo good also! And pretty, too! I was surprised to find out that they were gay. Gay talent is really amazing! Michael Pangilinan, singer of Bridges of Loved, did a duet with Ms. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and made throngs of female audiences “kilig.”
You can still catch the PLDT Regine Series Mall Tour on July 4 at Market!Market!, July 11 at Glorietta and July 18 at Trinoma.

I’m happy when service providers finds ways to make life easier and secure for their clients. Right now, with all the news you hear about fraud and crime happening around ATM’s I get extra paranoid with the security of my ATM. Like when someone in line stays too close by and you can imagine the heart attack it gives when I can’t find it in my wallet!
Philippine Savings Bank (PSBank), the thrift bank arm of Metrobank Group, addresses this client security concern with the new ATM LOCK feature. The ATM Lock is a mobile based service that allows clients to lock and unlock their ATM cards.
With this feature, ATM cardholders can make use of an additional layer of security to protect their hard earned money from ATM loss, theft, skimming (copying of cardholder information), and other card-initiated electronic fraud. Like if you can’t locate your ATM card, suspect something irregular in your bank balance, you can immediately enable the ATM Lock service anywhere, anytime and unlock it once the issue is settled.
To get you started with PSBank”s ATM Lock Service:
Step 1: Download PSBank Mobile App through Apple Store or Google Play.
Step 2: Lock or Unlock by logging in and lock/unlock by following app in 2 easy steps.
A transaction confirmation will be received immediately through the app and further notification will be sent on the client’s registered email address.
“Our clients’ security and convenience are important to us. With the PSBank ATM Lock feature, which they can perform anytime, we are able to provide our clients a simple and reliable tool that would protect their hard-earned savings from ATM card-related fraud incidents,” said PSBank Senior Vice President / Marketing and Customer Experience Group Head Emmanuel Tuazon.
The lock and unlock feature applies only to the ATM cards of clients with either single or multiple cards linked to an account. Account holders with locked ATM cards will not be able to use them for ATM or point-of-sale (POS) transactions nor make online purchases that require clients to provide the ATM card number. On the other hand, cardholders can still pay bills and transfer funds through PSBank’s internet banking facility, PSBank Mobile or over-the-counter.
The PSBank ATM Lock service is exclusively for PSBank Mobile App users and for clients who have accounts linked to a PSBank Regular ATM card, PSBank Debit MasterCard or PSBank Prepaid MasterCard. It is also available to PSBank Online users by simply activating their mobile access. Soon, the service will also be available via SMS for all networks.

Hello! Yipee! It’s finally back to school. I’m not sure if I’m the only one but save for the morning battle I welcome the structure school day brings to our house. We have dinner early, the kids sleep early, they wake up early and best of all they are out of the house the whole day;-)
As a work-at-home-mom, I find it very stressful to work and have the kids in the house at the same time. My mind is always in a constant state of guilt. If I’m busy working, I wince and my heart is pierced when I know that they are all wasting away with their gadgets. If I’m busy taking care of them, I worry that my to-do is piling up by the second. I haven’t even written anything on the blog for practically the whole summer save for a few posts.
And now, the glorious hours of quiet presents itself like a clear, green meadow before me. I can actually hear the birds chirping!
Kidding aside, I’m sure I will miss the kids when the days go by but for now I’m relishing the quiet.
I feel it’s going to be a good year for the kids.
My 4 year old son transfers to a new school and shifts to Montessori style of learning. I love the materials and environment of his school! Lots of open space and greens and everything retrofit for the kids’ size. The materials are carefully selected to ensure maximized learning. They operate on the premise that “Children teach themselves” and they have built on that with wonderful materials present for the kids to explore and discover. Lastly, they have the magic touch to let 2-4 year olds, all 25 of them remain quiet and calm with their individual activities. It is amazing to see kids in those ages, so peaceful, I never thought it to be possible.
My 11 year old daughter is now on her first year as a junior high school student (grade 7). Sporting a new uniform and a sprightly attitude thanks to her 5 day out of town NLP (Neuro Lingusitic Program) Summer Camp at WorldStage. She has committed to try tackling her Mandarin subject on her own this year without the help of a tutor. And has even expressed interest in joining a club that focuses in helping the less fortunate.
As for my 13 year old son who is in grade 9, it is his first year to use an Ipad in school. And my goodness, he is on it his every waking moment, it is scary. But that would be another topic. Save for the gadget attachment, he is happy to share that he has very good teachers. His school always does, that is why I love his school. And since my boy loves to eat, he excitedly narrates all the new food concessionaires in his school – specialty burgers to Pepper Lunch taste-a-like. I think schools have to also make an extra effort, like my son’s school does, in providing good food choices to kids. Mundane as it may sound, good food in the school canteen does add to the overall positive environment of the school. Take it from Google, right?
As for me, I was able to accomplish a month’s task in a week on the kid’s first week back-to-school. I hope to be with you guys more, sharing thoughts and information we parents need and value.
Cheers to a Good School Year 2015-2016!
