C-Lium Brings International Zumba Expert Loretta Bates to Manila

World-renowned Zumba instructor Loretta Bates to the Philippines to inspire Filipinos to have a healthier lifestyle is in Manila this October. 

Staying true to its advocacy of healthy living, C-Lium Fibre, together with Live Love Party International, brings Loretta Bates as she lead hundreds of Zumba enthusiasts in two special Zumba sessions in Bacolod City on October 4, and at The Playground, Ronac Art Center in San Juan, Metro Manila on October 5. This campaign will teach everybody that fitness programs can be fun and exciting, too. 

Zumba, which is performed primarily to the groove of lively music, is an aerobic fitness program inspired by various Latin American dance styles. It became a popular exercise amongst individuals, especially women, who found their usual gym routine monotonous and boring.

Loretta Bates is a Zumba education specialist, instructor, and ZIN (Zumba Instructor Network) member since 2007. She is also an ACE (American Council on Exercise) Certified Personal Trainer and AFAA (Aerobic and Fitness Association of America) Certified Group Fitness Instructor, making her the right person to educate people on how to live a healthy and active lifestyle through Zumba. 

While she conducts most of her training sessions in North and South Carolina, she also travels around the world to promote her mission of helping others have better, healthier lives. And, C-Lium is very happy that she’s bringing her Zumba moves here to the Philippines. 

Bates shares the advocacy of C-Lium to live a healthier lifestyle by incorporating regular exercise and proper diet with a daily dose of fiber.

Nowadays, most people fail to get the body’s required 20 to 30 grams of daily fiber, which may make them more prone to diseases such as high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity. Taking C-Lium Fibre everyday will help them achieve their fiber needs in a more convenient way. 

C-Lium Fibre is made from 100% natural psyllium plant which is a good source of soluble and insoluble fibers. According to the National Fiber Council, the soluble fiber in psyllium absorbs water, turns into a gel, then attaches to food, sugars, cholesterol, and fats in the stomach, and helps to expel them out of the digestive system. By doing so, the risk for many life-threatening diseases, such as heart disease, certain forms of cancer, diabetes and stroke may be reduced. 

C-Lium Fibre supports programs like Zumba to show its long-time commitment to promote active and healthy living for Filipinos.

C-Lium Fibre comes in husk powder and capsule variants and is available in leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.

Don Moen returns to Manila on October 17 - “God Will Make A Way! Philippine Tour 2014”

“God Will Make A Way! Philippine Tour 2014” will treat concert-goers to an inspiring musical and spiritual experience featuring the musical talent and skill of the 64-year-old artist who has captivated millions with his marvelous voice and style that gave the world songs like “God Will Make A Way,” “Thank You, Lord,” “God Is Good All The Time” and “Give Thanks”. 

Don Moen, the singer-songwriter-producer who gained worldwide recognition for his hit praise-and-worship songs that interpret closely the words of the Bible, is scheduled to return to Manila for an evening of contemporary Christian music on Friday, Oct. 17, at the new CCF Center, Frontera Verde Ortigas Ave., Pasig City (beside Tiendesitas).

The popular American singer will take center stage during the one-night musical presentation from Ovation Productions almost one year after his last local tour that took him to the cities of Davao, Dumaguete, General Santos and Dipolog in Mindanao and which followed his 2012 concert series that covered Metro Manila, Tagbilaran City and Butuan City.

Other Christian songs he has popularized include “Lord, I Offer My Life To You”, “Crown Him”, “I Want To Be Where You Are”, “Blessed Be The Name Of The Lord”, “Celebrate, Jesus, Celebrate”, “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”, “All We Like Sheep”, “Your Steadfast Love”, and many more. 

Aside from his excellent vocal quality and style, Don’s music stands out for its straightforward simplicity that bares men’s souls before God, and which contributes in making worship music sound so effortless, animated by his smooth tenor over catchy, string-laden adult contemporary tunes.

While many worship leaders can reach only certain demographics, Don can extend to and touch a cross-section of worshippers and believers from diverse social classes and religious beliefs, with many seniors and youngsters enjoying his songs. 

A frequent visitor to the Philippines during the past several years, Don has established a solid base of Pinoy fans of different classes and ages and who are expected to turn out in impressive numbers during his coming performance.

Associated with some of the best-known contemporary Christian music for more than three decades, Don developed his musical talent while attending Oral Roberts University in Oklahoma until he became a Living Sound musician for Terry Law Ministries before joining Integrity Incorporated, authors of the “Hosanna! Music” praise and worship series.

As worship leader, he produced a total of 11 volumes in the series, including the first album, “Hosanna! Music: Give Thanks” which sold hundreds of thousands of copies and became the label’s bestseller. He followed this up with a number of successful albums of his own. His music has total global sales of over five million copies.

After working for 20 years in such positions as creative director of Integrity Media, president of Integrity Label Group and executive producer of Integrity Music albums, Don left Integrity Media in 2008 to start a new venture, the Don Moen Company, which eventually acquired MediaComplete, the church software company that created MediaShout.

Don received a Dove Award for his work on the musical, “God With Us” and Dove Award nominations for ”God Will Make A Way” and eight other songs two years earlier. A greatest hits compilation featuring 19 top hits and aptly titled, “God Will Make A Way: The Best of Don Moen” was released by Integrity in 2003.

A prolific songwriter, Don has worked with Claire Cloninger, Paul Overstreet, Martin J. Nystrom, Randy Rothwell, Ron Kenoly, Bob Fitts, Debbye Graafsma, Paul Baloche, Tom Brooks, among many others. He has also worked with talented musicians like Justo Almario, Abraham Laboriel, Alex Acuna, Paul Jackson, Jr., Lenny LeBlanc and Carl Albrecht.

Don’s album, “Hiding Place,” became his first studio, followed by “I Believe There Is More” in the fall of (2008), “Uncharted Territory” (2012), and “Christmas: A Season of Home,” (2012). Don released an album titled, “Hymnbook” as a celebration of his reaching over one million likes on his Facebook page.

He is visiting the Philippines fresh from a historic Holy Land tour on Sept. 9-14, where he worshipped in Israel together with his wife Luisa and other worship leaders like Lenny LeBlanc, Paul Wilbur and Bible teacher and author Stephen Mansfield. Three months earlier, He embarked on a tour of Africa that was highlighted by a three-day concert in Kampala, capital city of Uganda. 

Join us in a night of praise and worship with Don Moen at CCF Center, Frontera Verde Ortigas Ave., Pasig City on 17th October.

A New Wave of Cooking aims to solve the food-preparation woes of Filipino households, to change the way you do things around the kitchen. 

With the lifestyles of modern homemakers changing at a fast pace, lengthy and tedious meal preparations have become quite a challenge for champions of the household. In the kitchen, it is no longer just about how food is prepared—more importantly, it is about how fast and easy the task can be done. 
Phillip Trapaga General Manager of Concepcion Midea Inc Philippines speaks at the launch of their New Wave of Cooking kichen appliance line.

During the product launch event, Phillip Trapaga, General Manager of Midea Philippines shared that 
“while meal preparation appears to be such a mundane part of our daily tasks, it actually has considerable weight in our way of life because it affects how we manage our time and, more importantly, our health and well being.”

According to Trapaga, there are three essential factors that are considered when cooking: meal preparation, nutritional value, and cost. “Midea’s new kitchen range presents solutions for each of these,” he added.

A special guest during the event, Celebrity Chef Rob Pengson shared some insights about his ideal kitchen. He said, “A handy kitchen is composed of appliances that provide the best-tasting meals without compromising energy efficiency and affordability.”

Guest Chef Rob Pengson performs a live kitchen demonstration using Midea's latest line of kitchen appliances titled A New Wave of Cooking which aims.

“Most of the time, nutrition and affordability are sacrificed in favor of easier food preparation. But cooking is really more of an art. Once you’ve found the right tools, you can pretty much create whatever masterpiece you want without sacrificing quality. It is all about investing in the right kitchen partners,” he said.

Included in Midea’s newest kitchen line are the microwave oven, induction cooker, multi-cooker, rice cooker, and kettles.

Faster cooking time, lesser cost

The Midea induction cooker prepares food twice as fast compared to regular electrical stoves. In fact, it is equipped with double-coil technology that saves 37 percent on electrical consumption.

The smart way to cook rice

Another innovative product from the brand is its rice cooker. This product is equipped with smart sensors that automatically measure the ideal cooking time you need to get the perfect rice, no matter how much water you put.
