Ipanema Selfeet Sunday

Davao Gets the #IpanemaSelfeet Experience

Last Novemeber 16,  I had a fantastic time attending the Ipanema Selfeet Sunday at the Abreeza Mall.  The famous Brazilian flipflop brand Ipanema launched the #Ipanema Selfeet campaign that challenges everyone to take their own selfeets in their every adventure. Davaoenos had a fabulous day checking out Ipanema’s  latest designs. We made rounds doing ‘selfeets‘ at the #IpanemaSelfeet stations that had fun backgrounds for that perfect shot. There were raffles for a chance to win gift certificates and accommodation at Pearl Farm Beach resort.  To top it all, we got a chance to see the handsome actor Tom Rodriguez, and pose for a picture with him, too. What’s more, Ipanema opened its first concept store in Davao at the ground floor of the Abreeza Mall, giving a one-day-only 20% discount for every purchase of Ipanema flipflops. Moreover, the fun continues online with the Ipanema Selfeet contest on Facebook. All you have to do is […]

Domex “Fiesta” Video Brings Awareness for Clean Toilets, Germ-free Communities

Imagine this scene typically played out during fiestas: People rushing to the streets, drawn to the sound of a marching band. Everyone is smiling, eager to see the “star” of the celebration. But instead of showing the face of a movie celebrity, a beauty queen or a politician, the video reveals an unlikely, yet welcome sight—a new, clean toilet facility. “Fiesta”, the Domex video is produced by Unilever Philippines. Now up on Youtube, it shows how underprivileged Filipinos welcome the “arrival” of clean toilet facilities in their communities. “The video aims to make people realize the value of a toilet which most of us, unfortunately, take for granted,” said Dennis Chua, Domex Brand Manager.
