Philippine Wacoal holds interactive exhibit that uplifts and celebrates women

Manila, Philippines — Philippine Wacoal Corporation has been a significant part of the daily lives of Filipinas here and across the globe for 30 years now. To celebrate this milestone, Wacoal recently held a five-day interactive exhibit last June 26-30 at the Level 3 of SM Makati where they also launched their latest campaign called Wacoal’s Women of the World.

In line with their anniversary theme “Uplifting Women for 30 Years”, the brand exhibited remarkable stories of 30 women from different fields, such as social entrepreneurship, aviation, art, management, publishing, public speaking, content creation, and personal branding among others.

Right on the spotlight of the exhibit were the portraits of 30 multi-hyphenate women, as well as their stories of hardwork and success. Some of them led talks on their personal journey, and how each and every one can make their mark, too.

This embodies the company’s persistence in helping more and more ladies realize their significance and excellence no matter where they are, no matter what lifestyle they have chosen to live and pursue.

Part of the campaign’s amazing roster of individuals include sports broadcaster and enthusiast Dyan Castillejo, advocate of renewable energy Ruth Yu Owen, campaigner of strong social responsibility and designer Zarah Juan, and visual artist Celeste Lecaroz.

“From the products that we offer, to the advocacies we promote, our brand guarantees that every single Filipina realizes their beauty and worth,” Ann Christine Palisoc, president of Philippine Wacoal Corporation, said.

Such empowering campaign direction — highlighting the transition from challenges to achievements — not only mirrors who the company stands for, but how it has also reached its current stature in the intimate apparel industry.

“When we started, it was a real struggle with the department stores who expected us to offer discounts. But through constant communication, they began to understand our brand values. The superior quality of the products spoke for themselves and today, the department stores have become valuable business partners with relationships based on trust,” shared Palisoc.

Aside from moving stories and engaging discussions, each day of the interactive exhibit was packed with activities and concepts that further show the company’s value for freedom – freedom to explore, move, and have fun.

The venue also featured travel-inspired photobooths that made guests feel like they have travelled to top international destinations where Wacoal has established its presence. Guests posed in front of Eiffel Tower of Paris, New York’s Statue of Liberty, as well as the Cherry Blossoms of Japan – right at the exhibit. The setup comes in 3D effect, with real elements like park benches, boats, and even a Sakura tree to mimic that ideal travel photo.

Eventgoers unleashed their creativity with the Create Your Own Power Frame, which allowed them to become the cover model of their own magazine. Other exciting activities also include glitter tattoo, tarot card reading, and of course, participants also tried on different Wacoal items at the venue.

Aside from the June 26 to 30 exhibit, the company also held a dinner gala last June 4 to recognize the notable people behind the brand’s success in the country. It also showcased their accomplishments and bigger plans in the following years to come.

“Our focus is to grow the boutique business and further elevate the brand image by providing more exciting premium product lines and even better customer service. Better customer service means improving one’s total experience, from better facilities offering more comfort and privacy to better communication with our beauty advisers,” said Palisoc.

One can expect Philippine Wacoal Corporation to continue to offer high quality functional and comfortable products but in addition to this, even more premium products featuring elegance and comfort while consistently enhancing the beauty of the woman’s body. You can also watch out for more exciting new product lines including lingerie, men’s underwear, and more activewear for women.

GCash Forest eyes 365 thousand trees planted In 365 days

Filipinos who want to contribute to environmental preservation can now conveniently use an innovative mobile phone app to help plant trees and increase the Philippines’ forest cover.

Leading mobile wallet, GCash, Is introducing an exciting ”green” feature on the app called GCash Forest, which lets subscribers plant virtual trees that will have real-Iife counterparts. By the end of 365 days, GCash Forest aims to plant 365 thousand trees with the help of GCash subscribers.

According to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ Forest Management Bureau (FMB), the Philippines is losing 47,000 hectares of forest cover every year. The FMB also reported the need to rehabilitate 1.2 million hectares of forest lands by 2022 to prevent landslides, ensure water availability, and preserve biodiversity.

“GCash Forest is about making it easier, more convenient, and even rewarding for everyone to take care of our environment for the benefit of future generations,” said Mynt CEO Anthony Thomas. ”GCash is no longer just providing an excellent platform for accessible financial products and services but also enabling Filipinos to be more active in responding to real-life issues, such as climate change mitigation through reforestation. “


GCash considers GCash Forest as a last mile initiative that fully recognizes the emergence of an all-digital Filipino lifestyle.

To implement its tree-planting initiatives, GCash Forest partnered with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and The Biodiversity Finance Initiative (BIOFIN). The DENR will provide land resources in lpo Watershed, an essential component of the Angat-Umiray-Ipo watersheds system supplying 98 percent of Metro Manila’s water. WWF will be providing trees and manpower while BIOFIN will provide expertise on monitoring.

Thomas added that recent findings on the Philippines’ vulnerability to climate-related hazards call for greater collective action. Results of the Global Peace Index 2019 identified the Philippines as the most susceptible country to the adverse effects of climate change. By leveraging the GCash platform and scale, GCash Forest aims to rally a coalition of individuals, non-government organizations, and international organizations to meet its 2020 targets.

To plant trees through GCash Forest, GCash users need to collect ”green energy” by frequently using the app. Users who get enough green energy can choose which species of trees they want to plant in a selected area at the lpo watershed. Once the trees are physically planted, users get to receive a certificate of ownership with a serial number, fun facts and updates on the growth of their trees on their GCash apps. ”Many Filipinos, especially the younger ones, care about the environment but a lot of them don’t know how they can actively take part in environmental protection. This is a barrier that GCash Forest addresses because they only need to use their smartphones-an already integral part of their daily lives-to make a difference,” concluded Thomas.


The new featureis inspired by Alipay Ant Forest, a product operates by Ant Financial, an Alibaba affiliate n e parent company of the world’s leading payments and lifestyle platform, Alipay. Via the mobile platform, more than 500 million users have planted 100 million real trees and advanced a shared vision of sustainable and inclusive development.


“The GCash Forest shows digital technology holds a huge power to mobilize people in support of sustainable development and the fight against climate change. And this power goes beyond border and is at our fingertips through our mobile devices,” said Yan Meng, Ant Financial’s Global Head of International Partnerships. “We’re more than happy to open up our technology and expertise to current and potential partners to make the world a better place.”


BLACK SUGAR in your area

Hi Loves!!

I had a chance to visit the recently opened milk tea shop in Taguig, which is the Black Sugar Taiwan Tea. I have visited them with my Hey Manila family. I really enjoy everything, the food, tea and of course their Instagram worthy place. I also recommend their place because all they offer are really budget friendly.

Let us talk about their location first. The Black Sugar was located in Asia Town Park Mckinley West, Taguig. Honestly, for a Quezon City girl like me it was a bit far but still worth it to visit. I tried commuting when I visit them. I took MRT from Cubao Station to Ayala MRT Station since I am from work. I took the bus to BGC (North) and went off to the first station. I took a jeepney going to West Mckinley and drop off walked a bit towards Telus and Teleperformance building since the shop was near those building and after a walk voila, I arrived on my destination.

I can say it will be easier to visit them with private car or via Grab to avoid any hassle but if you prefer to commute and have a little exercise, commuting will be great.

When I arrived I was amazed with how cute the place was. The pastel shade, relaxing ambiance and Instagrammable place was really amazing. I can say that all the area is really an IG worthy spot and will definitely be perfect for your feed.

Let us now talk about what they offer and let us begin with their food. They offer meals and snacks and what we tried was their French Fries, Cheese sticks and Fish Cake. These snacks that we tried are really best partner for our drinks.

The Black Sugar offer lots of drink choices and they have different series. They have the Black Sugar Series, Fruit Tea Series, Fresh Fruit Shakes, Milk Tea Series, Charcoal Series, Fruity Bubble Soda and Lava Hot Drinks. We had a chance to try from different series but I choose the Taro Milk Smoothie from their Fresh Fruit Shake and I really love the taste and how cute my drink was.


My drink was not so sweet which I loved and also when we share about our drinks that time, they say that they love it too because the sweetness level was just right.


I am also happy since their packaging was reusable so it was really eco-friendly and I love it because I am always an advocate of saving Mother Earth.


I can really recommend their shop and will definitely visit them again to try their other drinks because I know that they are all good not just physically but of course because they make sure taste will not be compromised.


  • IG worthy place
  • Yummy foods
  • Lots of drink options
  • Reusable cups
  • Affordable price

LBC Powers Through North to South with New Warehouses

LBC continues its dominance over the Philippines’ logistics industry with the opening of warehouses to serve customers- all the way from the North down to the South.


Currently in full operations is the 6,300 sqm Kapayapaan Warehouse located within the Mexico Industrial Complex, Brgy. Panipuan, Mexico Pampanga aimed to service the northern region.

It also has elevated loading bays with up to 12 doors and will soon be installed with solar panels, making the warehouse environment-friendly and cost-efficient.

According to Jerome Santos, LBC’s Vice-President for Corporate Sales: “The country’s brisk economic activity needs to be matched with above-par services from LBC.
