Kiddie Photoshoot: Elanna Beatriz

It's Elanna's birthday tomorrow. Eireka and Craig's youngest. But before she turned 1, I was given the privilege to have a photo session with her. Thanks to her momma for letting me do so. 

When it comes to photo editing, I hate too much "drama". As much as possible I edit less. I prefer doing minimal changes to a photo. Hence, you can see most of the pictures here were edited just to enhance the brightness/contrast and not exaggerating the photo effects. 




When the subject is kind of blurry or out of focus, I made use of the SEPIA/B&W tones. To hide the blur and to see the beauty of the photo in a classic way.



I love taking candid shots. It's the most precious for me, and to think that kids, specially toddlers are the hardest subject to shoot, because they're too mobile.















I really had fun shooting this little tot, though I wasn't feeling well that day. Again, thanks to the Merigillano couple for trusting my talent.

Vibal, PNU stage 2nd Digital Education Conference


IMG 5125 Small
Technology-aided instruction and learning were at the forefront of discussions at the "2nd Digital Education Conference: K to 12 and Teaching & Learning with Technology" last May 20, 2013 at the HRD Auditorium of the Philippine Normal University (PNU) in Manila, Philippines.
Organized by PNU, Vibal Publishing House, Inc. (VPHI), and Vibal Foundation, the two-day conference and workshop featured talks and workshops by some of the most distinguished names in the field of education, dishing out lessons and pointers on how to make technology work for students and teachers.
Integration of technology in classrooms
In her opening remarks, Dr. Ester B. Ogena, president of PNU, admonished the participants to adapt to technology and be part of the shift in 21st century educational landscape.
Mr. Benjamin G. Quito, ICT specialist in education from the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), followed suit with a comprehensive look at the ways technology is being used in classrooms across various Southeast Asian countries. In his presentation entitled “Mobile Devices for Teaching and Learning,” Mr. Quito provided the necessary impetuses to ensure the successful integration of technology in basic education curriculum: high penetration rate of mobile technologies, fast migration to the digital learning environment, and the enhancement of 21st century competencies as well as higher-order thinking skills.
One of the organizations that have been actively addressing these issues is Khan Academy. Originally conceived by Samuel Khan as a basic platform for learning made easy through video tutorials, the organization has grown by leaps and bounds, providing access to teaching and learning materials for free to millions of users around the world.
During the event, Bilal Musharraf, dean of translation of Khan Academy, emphasized that “data is key” to achieving the organization's vision of developing materials that are “mastery-based, personalized, and interactive.”
Mr. Musharaff also laid bare the organization's recent partnership with Vibal Foundation, the philanthropy arm of Vibal Group of Companies, to translate Khan Academy's library of educational materials to Filipino, Cebuano, Kapampangan, and Ilocano, among other local languages. This partnership is founded on both organizations' thrust to promote learning using the most effective and up-to-date resource materials that have been proven to yield positive results.2nddigedconf3
'Intelligent culture'
Dr. Ogena got up behind the podium once more for a discussion on “Teaching with Technology.” The PNU president stressed the need to “develop an intelligent culture” by ensuring that content materials, teachers, students, and technology tools are all properly addressed.
In line with this, the introduction of the new K to 12 curriculum for basic education presents timely opportunities to integrate ICT in classrooms. In her presentation entitled “K to 12 Curriculum and Technology Integration,” Dr. Rosalina Villaneza, chief of curriculum of the Department of Education's Bureau of Elementary Education, discussed the basis for ICT integration and provided the imperatives for the K to 12 curriculum. She said the principles for inclusive education negate “flexibility and differentiated learning system” as well as “balanced learning experiences.”
A subsequent presentation by Br. Dennis Magbanua, former president of De la Salle Santiago Zobel and now president of College of St. Benilde, and Ms. Amy Galang, principal of La Salle Green Hills, showed both schools' experiences in integrating technology in their classrooms. As pioneers in the use of tablets and e-textbooks in the country, both schools have had their shares of challenges and rewards in the course of the implementation of their programs. Relating their experiences starting from planning to actual implementation all the way to assessment, the two school administrators provided insights to other participants looking to replicate their program in their own schools.
Capping off the day's series of lectures was Dr. Marilyn Balagtas, director of PNU's Research Center for Teacher Quality, who engaged the participants through her presentation on “Assessment and Technology in the 21st Century.” Dr. Balagtas provided the plenary with initial findings from her still ongoing study that reveal ICT literacy of instructors in the country.

VSmart’s Offline/Online e-learning solution unveiled
The conference culminated with the launch of Vibal’s latest technology product, which encapsulates the effective synergy of mobile technologies, social networking, and digital text. Vibal president and CEO Gaspar A. Vibal said the pioneering project aims to “revolutionize teaching and learning.”
V-Smart represents a leap from the traditional modes of instruction and learning, spawning an ecosystem for digital learning that presents a comprehensive suite of solutions including an integrated e-textbook reader, classroom learning management, social learning platform, and classroom and mobile device management system. It is anchored on the core principles of digital literacy, instant feedback, social learning, and gamified learning.
The “K to 12 and Teaching & Learning with Technology” conference was organized with support from tech companies Apple, Microsoft and Samsung. # # #

The Comfy Way to Breastfeed


Philips Avent’s Comfort Breast Pump promotes smoother milk flow Motherhood brings countless joys. But with emotional fulfillment come sacrifices  that both seasoned and newbie moms face.  One of the most challenging, as  well as uncomfortable, experiences is breastfeeding. But with the right tools,  breastfeeding can be a pleasurable and fulfilling gift that any mom can give to her  newborn. 

“Philips Avent is behind moms everywhere in giving the best possible nutrition for  their babies,” shares Me-Ann Achacoso, Philips Avent’s Business Development Manager. “Providing breast milk to your little one is very important, and Philips Avent sees to it that moms can do this in utmost comfort.” Achacoso says that when moms are comfortable and relaxed, milk flows more easily. And to aid moms in providing milk for their babies, Philips Avent created its most comfortable breast pump yet—the Philips Avent Comfort Breast Pump. 

Designed for relaxed and hassle-free pumping, the Philips Avent Comfort Breast Pump allows milk to flow directly from the breast into the bottle, even if you are sitting up straight. That means moms can sit more comfortably when pumping, and no longer need to lean forward to make sure all the milk ends up in the bottle. It prevents backache, aids relaxation and encourages easier milk flow.



Its innovative active massage cushion feels warm and natural on the breast, as its soft silicone petals gently massage the breast to stimulate the let-down reflex, encouraging milk flow and supply. 

“The Philips Avent Natural and Comfort range was developed in cooperation with healthcare professionals to ensure the highest mother and childcare standards. The Philips Avent Natural Comfort range allows moms to be more flexible when feeding their babies,” Achacoso adds.


The Comfort Breast Pump is available in manual and electric format.“Philips Avent believes that breastfeeding should not be a daunting task, especially for new moms. We want moms to feel at ease when caring for their newborn, and we likewise want babies to get the best possible nutrition during their growing up years,” concludes Achacoso.

"Behind the Doors of Chateau"

"A RESTAURANT BRIMMING WITH STORIES"

With his trademark panache, Ricky Gutierrez launches a book, “Behind the Doors of Chateau 1771,” to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Chateau 1771 last May 18. Available  for only Php650 at 1771 Group of Restaurants' Chateau, Sentro, Cafe, SideBar, and WineBar



Ricky Gutierrez chose a risky, creative business in post-Martial Law Manila instead of a safe trading job in the United States. Chateau 1771 was built on the grounds of his old home. He went into the restaurant business cold – not knowing anything about it, relying on his guts and instincts more than anything else.

A life that revolves around food and service is both delicious and challenging. This is the life that Vicky Pacheco chose. From Ecole Les Roches and Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, Switzerland, she managed an upscale Filipino restaurant in California, then headed home and found herself in Chateau 1771.

 “Behind the doors of Chateau 1771” chronicles the restaurant openings, new menus and new kitchens, changing interiors and life lessons the two have racked up over 25 years. It is a road map for others wishing a restaurateur’s creative, unpredictable life.
The book is not just about their story. It opens up the world they created. It holds a roomful of stories as different people recount their experiences working for and with the Chateau 1771 Group.

The kitchen is Vicky’s favourite room, the place where she is most comfortable. The book is a rare look inside a restaurant kitchen. “Much Ado over Valentine’s Day” reveals the demands of a full house on the cooks. There is camaraderie among Chateau’s kitchen brigades even with Vicky’s strict rules in place. Cooks can convey so much with their expressions and body language and still obey the ‘no talking’ rule during service!

Vicky calls her cuisine No Borders – and the book retraces her many journeys to learn about and sample different cuisines. Imagine discovering Europe through Vicky’s eyes and with her palate!   Vicky rides planes, trains and even disreputable vans to reach the unusual, artisanal places in different continents. In Vicky’s hands, classic dishes are transposed into something new and exciting for the modern Filipino palate.

Vicky once wrote to a younger chef, “Take advantage of everything you learn.” A creative person cannot help but be constantly amazed and challenged by what the world has to offer. Chateau’s high standards compel its staff to hone their skills and develop their character. The front of the house demands grace and personality to meet the expectations of the restaurant’s guests. First, constant recruitment, then, rigorous training, go into creating a service staff that is genuinely attentive to Chateau’s guests. This discreet, caring service allows customers to celebrate their milestones and nurture their relationships in a beautiful place.

Ricky is the wizard behind his restaurants’ interiors. Whimsical illustrations and pictures culled from his archives show the evolution of his dining rooms, updated by the wonderful photography of Alan Tuazon. Ricky loves all the details of a restaurant, down to the door knobs and bathrooms. The book follows his meticulous planning and conceptualizing of each space.

Ricky’s passion for food and life and Vicky’s commitment to excellent quality are the book’s compelling themes. It is offered up to the creative spirit in everyone.




Chateau 1771 – Greenbelt 5 is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. every Sunday to Thursday and 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 m.n. for Friday to Saturday. For reservations, banquets and catering services, please call 729-9760 to 61 or (0917) 8626467. Chateau 1771 is a member of the Chateau 1771 Group of Restaurants that include Sentro 1771 in Greenbelt 3, Sentro 1771 in Serendra, Bonifacio Global City and Café 1771 in El Pueblo Real de Manila, ADB Avenue cor. Julia Vargas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

Lady Antebellum's 4th Studio Album "GOLDEN"


Art is a moving target. Those who do it most successfully find shades of emotion within themselves that change the texture of their work and how they feel about themselves. As a result, a real artist is ever-changing.

Seven-time GRAMMY winning Trio Lady Antebellum has announced the release of their fourth Capitol Nashville studio album GOLDEN.




So it is for Lady Antebellum, whose album Golden was figuratively – and literally – borne on the move. The harmony-based trio – Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood – and its sizeable fan base bonded heavily during the band’s Own the Night World Tour, its first arena run as a headlining act, in 2012. The shows themselves were inspirational. But so was the time offstage. Lady A made a point of experimenting and creating with its road band as the one-nighters and the miles of travel piled up. That behind-the-scenes interaction inspired much of the music on Golden, an instantly infectious project in which Lady A discovered new edges for its already-successful foundation.

"This album feels to me like one of those that from start to finish could be a good road-trip record and that's what we wanted," said Lady A's Charles Kelley. "It's one of the reasons why the term 'golden' was kind of cool. I think about road trips and driving down the road with those little streaks of sunshine popping through the trees, especially at sunset. 'Golden' it just gives you this warm, easy feeling."

"Writing and recording this record really took us back to when we first met each other," added Hillary Scott. "When I first met the boys, we spent a lot of time around the piano at the house they lived in at the time. We didn't really know each other at all, but there was still some magic and then the harmony that’s how it all started - that blend of our voices and that blend of our songwriting craft. So, it's exciting that even on our fourth record, we can still find that."

"The word 'golden' to me conjures up a lot of pictures," continued Dave Haywood. "In the title track, it depicts driving down the road at sunset but, to me, it also depicts a special time in our career.a 'golden,' special time for us. We definitely want to value this time in our careers because it's such a treasure that we can still sit in a room and write songs together. I personally feel so humbled to still be making records that people are excited to hear."


The new album's lead single "Downtown" already stormed the Country radio charts, becoming the trio's career highest charting debut. People noted "this preview of Lady A's next album is slinky, sexy fun, crazy-catchy and downright soulful."

Lady A's previous three studio albums have paved the way for GOLDEN, which follows over 11 million album sales, six career No. one hits and seven GRAMMY awards. Last year alone, more than one million fans in over 11 countries welcomed the ACM and CMA award-winning trio on their headlining tour.

LADY ANTEBELLUM FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM “GOLDEN” is now available on record stores nationwide and online via iTunes Philippines exclusively under MCA Music Inc.

Jessica Sanchez' Debut Album Out Now!


AMERICAN IDOL FINALIST’S EAGERLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM
ME, YOU & THE MUSIC, OUT NOW!!!


Jessica Sanchez  — the 17-year-old California  native who won over American Idol viewers with her diva-worthy vocal range  — released her debut single, “Tonight” featuring Ne-Yo last March 21st.  Her single is now enjoying heavy rotation on radio and TV Channels nationwide and also charting Top 1 -5 on radio station all over the Philippines.

Me, You & the Music, Sanchez’s high-energy, beat-soaked debut album, released yesterday, May 14 on MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines).  Me, You & the Music features production by Benny Benassi, Harvey Mason Jr., Ne-Yo, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate & Toby Gad.

Born and raised in Chula Vista, California, Sanchez has worked on honing her vocal versatility for almost her entire life. She started singing when she was two and lists Mariah Carey, Etta James, and Ray Charles among her musical influences. At age ten she performed Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” on an episode of Showtime at the Apollo. A year later, she competed on the premiere season of America’s Got Talent, reaching the wild-card round before getting cut. Over the next few years, Sanchez performed at venues both large and small (including a 2008 San Diego Chargers game) and released a number of covers (such as Etta James’s “I’d Rather Go Blind”) through an independent record label. After nailing her American Idol audition in 2011, Sanchez climbed to the final two and landed her deal with Interscope soon after the season finale. Diving into the recording of her debut last summer, Sanchez took a break from the studio to tear through a rousing, choir-backed rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “All I Need to Get By” at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.



MCA Music Music, in cooperation with Odyssey Music and Video and Astroplus brings you to “Blujays Fan Party!” Jessica Sanchez 'Me You and the Music' Album launch @ Odyssey Megamall, May 18 (Sat) 4PM-7PM and on  May 19 (Sun) 4PM-7PM @ Astroplus SM North Edsa The Block.
