Baker Entrepreneur Cynthia Patos wins Lifestyle Network's "The Clash"

Baker entrepreneur Cynthia Patos clinches the coveted Great Dessert Master title in Lifestyle Network’s reality cooking competition show, “The Clash.”

Cynthia shares that “The Clash” was whipped up to test their limits and potential as bakers. Recalling the finale which aired on Lifestyle Network last December 5, Cynthia animatedly describes the experience of being hailed as “The Great Dessert Master.”

“The moment that they called my name, was one of those out-of-body experiences that happen rarely in life, and the funny part was, I could barely hear anything that was being said. All I could hear was the giant heartbeat sound effect that the producers had playing during the announcement,” said Cynthia.

After weeks of intense competition in the kitchen,  Cynthia also says that the best lesson she gained from Lifestyle Network’s “The Clash” was learning to trust her instincts – the lesson she is most grateful above all. Known as the clasher who has a lot of passions, Cynthia had to master the art of balancing her responsibilities as the owner and chief cake designer of her business, Cynfully Sweets while perfecting every challenge in “The Clash.”

Now that Cynthia has added another accomplishment in her achievements, she says that her future is looking bright.

“What is in store for me after? I would say the sky is the limit! I am setting no boundaries! I am seeing the stars, and you’ll just have to wait and see,” remarked The Great Dessert Master.

Lifestyle Network’s “The Clash: Search for the Next Great Dessert Master” finale last December 5 was judged by resident judges Chef Buddy Trinidad and Chef Jill Sandique together with guest judges March Ventosa, Head of ABS-CBN Narrowcast and DTT Channels, Nana Ozaeta, Editor-in-Chief of Food Magazine, Stephanie Benedito, Channel Head of Lifestyle Network, Amyline Ching, Managing Editor of Manila Bulletin, and CJ Juntereal, Columnist of Manila Bulletin.

Hydrating healthily in life 24/7

It is already a fact that we need water every day to keep our bodies healthy, functioning well and strong enough to withstand sickness. Yet we still go for drinks that quench our thirst and at the same time are flavorful and enjoyable to drink – juices and carbonated drinks are the usual suspects. They do taste good and give us some added nutrients; however, it is probable that some of them have chemicals that will not be as healthy as some minerals that are needed by the body.

Fortunately, Pocari Sweat, a health hydration drink by Otsuka Philippines Pharmaceutical Inc., brings hydration to a healthier but enjoyable level. Pocari Sweat is highly recommended to those who are
in need of immediate hydration, most especially those who have an active lifestyle and those who suffer from dehydration because of illness.

Pocari Sweat has a refreshing mild taste, even best when it’s cold, you won’t need another beverage to wash off a strong taste and flavor from your usual drink. Yet, children as young as one year old can safely drink it. It does not have artificial coloring, no preservatives, no caffeine, and no artificial sweetener, which then makes it safe for anyone who needs immediate hydration.

Especially now during these months when “ber-month” celebrations are close at hand, numerous parties will be held with family, friends, and co-workers from before the Christmas season until the New Year.

Alcohol will definitely flow and other fun activities will get you into that party mood that lasts up until the sun rises.

Those who love to go on a night out after work can get over hangover easily just by drinking Pocari Sweat before they turn in after their night cap. There is no fun in having those head-cracking hangovers.

When we drink alcoholic drinks like beer and cocktail, we get dehydrated easily because we tend to do a lot of restroom breaks.

Alcohol also drains the electrolytes that our bodies need to function that is why when we get drunk, we sometimes can’t get a hold of ourselves. Coffee and some warm soup may give us some relief for a time, but still, the best way to battle hangover is to replenish our body with enough electrolytes – something that a bottle of Pocari Sweat can give.

Pocari Sweat comes in 330ml can (Php 24.00), 350ml PET bottle (Php 24.00), 500ml PET bottle (Php 35.00), 2L PET bottle (Php 125.00). 

Pocari Sweat is available in major chain drugstores, supermarkets and convenience stores.
