Marian Rivera Shows Cooking Skills In 2 New TVC's For AJI-GINISA

Marian Rivera-Dantes is used to playing different characters: Primetime Queen, recording artist, brand ambassador, style icon, and philanthropist. But her favorite roles by far have been those behind the camera: as wife to Dingdong and mom to Baby Zia.



As a modern homemaker, who manages her time between work and family, Marian has found comfort in cooking as one of the best ways to make her family feel loved and to improve her culinary skills. On her social media pages, the Kapuso actress has posted some of her own culinary creations that range from baby food for little Zia, stews, soups, and veggies. And on days when Marian is short on time, stir-fry dishes have become her go-to choices for easy, yummy meals.

Topping her stir-fry list are Chopsuey and Fried Rice made with AJI-GINISA® Flavor Seasoning Mix, as seen in the seasoning’s two new TVCs which began airing last June 4, 2017. In both versions, Marian dances and sings to the tune of her hit song, “Sabay-sabay Tayo,’ while she adds AJI-GINISA® to each dish to make them more delicious and “Garantisadong Ginisarap.”

Like Marian, you can also whip up “Garantisadong Ginisarap” dishes – even non-vegetable ones – by adding a touch of AJI-GINISA® to your favorite stir-fry recipes.

SM Prime Employees Bayanihan For Brigada Eskwela 2017



More than a thousand SM employees volunteered to support the Department of Education’s (DepEd) 2017 Brigada Eskwela. Proving that the bayanihan sprit is very much alive, the employee volunteers from SM Prime and its Business Units all over the country cleaned up public elementary school buildings in their respective communities last Saturday, May 20. The volunteers shared their time to help prepare the school buildings for the opening of classes. The day was spent painting walls, chairs, and desks – with some even doing murals and other art works for the schools. 





Elena Bautista Horn, Vice President for Corporate Affairs of SM Prime said that the SM Prime’s employee volunteerism program is a manifestation of its commitment to nurture among their employees the spirit of volunteerism through community service.

“We believe that everyone in the company can contribute in helping making life a little better for the people in the communities we serve. No effort is too small to make a difference. Through volunteerism, we aim to provide our employees with a venue for sharing their talents and passion. Volunteerism provides our employees a hands-on perspective on the good that they can accomplish. ” Horn noted.

In 2016, SM volunteers cleaned up a total of 57 public elementary schools. For this year, 61 schools were repainted.

 SM Prime’s volunteerism program encourages community service among its employees to support SM Cares programs. SM Cares, a division of SM Foundation, collaborates with communities and organizations that promote positive change. Its programs focus on people and the community, environmental sustainability, disaster resilience and green campaigns.

SM Prime is one of the largest integrated property developers in Southeast Asia that offers innovative and sustainable lifestyle cities with the development of malls, residences, offices, hotels and convention centers.

Salcedo Auctions’ The Collectors’ Sale - Tips For Newbie Bidders



While auctions are often perceived to be only for those willing to shell out millions, the truth is, the auction format is best for those who are looking to get great deals on pieces that you may never have had access to in a gallery, or a high-end retail store. Here we detail the most essential tips for placing your first bid, and raising that auction paddle with star confidence:

1.     Peruse the auction catalogue
With hundreds of pieces often up for sale, take an afternoon to look through the online and/or printed catalogue and to read the descriptions, marking which lots pique your interest.

2.     Inspect the pieces for yourself
Auctions offer pieces in as-is condition so it is best to save the gallery preview date in your calendar (these typically start two weeks before the auction) and see the actual items.

3.     Decide which way you want to bid
Live bidding is definitely the most exciting way to participate at auctions but if the rush is just not for you,  or if you just really need to be somewhere else that day, there are telephone and absentee bid options available where a staff member of the auction house will execute the bids on your behalf.

4.     Register ahead of time
Signing up early allows you to skip queues on the day itself and frees up some time to grab the best seats in the house.  You wouldn’t want to be left standing at the back, hidden from view, jumping up and down to get the auctioneer’s attention!

5.     Know the auction increments
There are pre-set bidding increments that are announced at the beginning of the auction to ensure that the process is seamless. Make sure to listen carefully to know how much you are committing to when you raise your paddle. For example, while bids go up by P2,000 within the P10,000–30,000 range, once you hit the P30,000 mark, they go up in larger increments, followed by P5,000 at the P50,000-P100,000 range, then P10,000 above P100,000, and so on.



6.     Don’t take too long to bid
While scoping out the competition by watching bids get placed before you raise your paddle can be strategic, remember that once the auctioneer strikes the gavel the piece is sold so don’t wait too long before putting in your bid -and living with regret thinking about what could have been!

Lastly, if you’re the successful bidder – congratulations! – but don’t forget to settle your account within the auction house’s prescribed period so that you can take your prized acquisition home with you sooner to enjoy! Happy bidding!

On Saturday, 3 June 2017, Salcedo Auctions’ The Collectors’ Sale will feature over 300 lots of modern and contemporary Philippine and international art, Philippine tribal and ethnographic art, jewelry, furniture, objets d’art, décor, rare books, prints and maps.
