5 Tips From Tang to Get Your Kids Ready for Distance Learning

Education is the greatest gift you can give your child. As parents, we prioritize the safety of our children above all, but at the same time, we also want to make sure that they are prepared for their future by providing them with proper education despite this pandemic.
While ensuring the safety of our kids and preparing them for the new normal for learning, a lot of parents and kids are caught up in the whirlwind by trying to cope up with the distance learning and setting up all the needed apps or software to be prepared for an online class, which all of us parents can relate since we have been used to dropping our kids at school and picking them up once school ends. It somehow brought up the inner tech support within us as parents.

Admit it or not we are all caught off-guard but we are trying to do our best to make it happen for our kids, and though the preparation for some parents is extended until October with some schools following the government’s recent announcement you can st…

Best Bicycles for an Uphill Climb

Riding your bike around the city is a great way to unwind or add some exercise and variety to your daily commute. When your route includes a hill, you want a bike that can handle the incline. That’s why it’s important to find a women's beach cruiser bike with gears or other style that makes tackling hills a breeze. Follow this handy guide to find the best bike for heading uphill.


Gears Are Your Friend
Adjustable gears make it possible to ride your bike across a wide variety of terrain. If you’re planning to take on rolling hills on a regular basis, look for a bike that has multiple gears. There are great options for 7-speed or 21-speed models amongbikes for women. Opt for a 7-speed version if you think you’ll be riding on non-flat, but not super-steep, streets. A 21-speed version is better equipped to handle uphill climbs, as well as trails and longer distances. The upright riding position of a women's beach cruiser bike with gears is more comfortable for riding uphill than so…

This Grade 12 artist can make awesome artworks with banana catsup

When hard times strike and traditional resources are out of reach, the most creative of us can find ingenious ways to make one-of-a-kind works of art.This is especially true for Filipinos—and no one proves our resourcefulness and creativity more than this amazing Grade 12 artist, who didn’t need paint or pencils to create artwork. No, Vincent Dwight Paulo from Nueva Ecija uses banana catsup to draw portraits of famous personalities while staying at home during the community quarantine.While he first started with a catsup portrait back in 2018, it was during the quarantine when he really started honing this unique art skill. “I really engaged myself in doing catsup art since school and art supplies shops were closed,” said Vincent. “I was running out of materials, so I used catsup instead.”With creating catsup art being only a hobby for him, Vincent never thought it would become as popular as it did.
Working with catsupCatsup was not the first medium he had used to create art, but it wa…

In the darkness, we see light. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to see the brightness of everyone who in their own little ways tried to bring hope and smile to our brave Frontliners and volunteers.

SkinWhite, a pioneering whitening brand stood out by bringing light not just to whiten skin but to bring the light of hope to everyone through its #BeTheLight campaign. This envisioned to champion togetherness with everyone, either by group or individual, to be the beacons of light in these trying times.

My Version of U.S. Potato Pan Pizza

Potatoes play an essential role in our favorite Filipino dishes. We use them for our Picadillo, Caldereta, Mechado, Menudo, and even our all-time favorite Adobo! Then there is our go-to snack… Fries! And of course our favorite side dish, the Mashed Potato.  It is such a vital part of our daily meals, don’t you agree?Did you know that you can also use potatoes to make bread and pastries? Aside from having a much richer flavor than using regular flour, the bread made from potato is much softer and fluffier. Potatoes can be used in a lot more ways than what we are accustomed to. They come in so many forms aside from fresh. Here in the Philippines, Potatoes USA also markets U.S. frozen and U.S. dehydrated potatoes.
Potatoes can accommodate a host of flavor profiles, thus are useful in so many dishes and cuisines. Boiled, fried, baked, steamed, there is no limit to your cooking creativity when it comes to potatoes!

Healthy Diet defense against COVID-19

The COVID-19 Pandemic intensifies the Philippine’s battle against Double Burden of Malnutrition. Double Burden of Malnutrition is defined by World Health Organization (WHO) as “the coexistence of undernutrition along with overweight and obesity, or diet-related non communicable diseases, within individuals, households and populations, and across the life course.”

The limited distribution and access to food supplies aggravate the plight of poor and low income Filipino households to sustain each person’s required nutrients through healthy meals. On the other hand, home confinement due to the mandated community quarantine may cause more people to not only restrict their physical activities but also to overeat and/or consume more food with empty calories as part of coping with stress and/or boredom.

Given the importance of maintaining healthy diets to sustain our health and immunity against viruses and bacteria, we should turn to the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® as a viable safeguard to p…

Look your best with these beauty tweaks

As part of the new normal, many people are now working from home, sitting in front of computers for most of the day.

However, there are some who need to be in online meetings—client calls, pitch presentations, team conference updates, and virtual catch-ups with colleagues—as part of their work. So, what’s a girl got to do? Amp up her looks a little and be her most confident self, even on video calls.

BDO Life offers protection from life’s ‘what ifs’

“What if she says ‘no’? What if she gets pregnant right away? What if she gets sick? What if I get sick?”—these are the thoughts running through the mind of a young man as he prepares to propose to his girlfriend in the newly-launched online video of BDO Life Assurance Company, Inc.

The video spotlights a man confronted by life stage uncertainties or the ‘what ifs’ that come with getting married, starting a family, and growing older.

“What if she wants a big wedding? What if she gets pregnant right away? What if we have twins? What if ours kids want to get double majors?” Like the video’s lead character, it’s
normal to feel uneasy over these ‘what if’ questions despite the excitement of beginning a life together. Fortunately, there is a way to address life’s ‘what ifs.’

Locally stranded individuals (LSIs), currently staying at the Philippine Ports Authority, recently received assistance from the PLDT-Smart Foundation (PSF) and TV5 Alagang Kapatid Foundation, Inc. (AKFI) who paid them a visit and advised them on health protocols while distributing snack packs and raincoats.

“We hope to provide some comfort and nourishment to over 200 LSIs patiently waiting at the port area for a ship that could transport them to their respective homes in places such as Basilan, Jolo, Sulu, Cagayan De Oro, Butuan City, Iloilo, Bacolod, and Cebu,” said PSF President Ma.

BDO Unibank warns against SIM-card-related scams

BDO Unibank, Inc. cautions against scammers who use SIM cards to deceive and steal their victims’ money. One modus is called SIM Swapping, where scammers disguise as telco agents offering upgraded network connection in exchange for SIM cards.

More prevalent is the SIM Upgrade modus. Scammers purchase 4G SIM cards, register their victims’ mobile number, and fool their victims into giving the One-Time PIN (OTP) needed to own the mobile number.

In both modus operandi, scammers takeover their victims’ mobile number to control their victims’ online bank accounts.

BDO urges clients to call BDO Customer Care to deactivate their accounts if they get SMS notifications or emails about suspicious online transactions.

How SIM Swapping and SIM Upgrade work

Scammers identify then gather their victims’ personal information through phishing or from the internet. They mention personal information such as birth date and mother’s maiden name when they call their victims to sound convincing and credible. …

CBIG: Protecting the Unsung Heroes of COVID-19

During the duration of the lockdown period because of COVID-19, We realized a lot of things in our life, we've also learned to make the most of what we have and to adjust ourselves to the "new normal". It was a perfect example of an event in our life where we've been caught off guard since almost all of the access that we have to the outside world has been limited that even the ability to buy groceries and personal needs has been a luxury.



While the whole Metro Manila is being quarantined, few brave souls came out to aid their fellow Filipinos in delivering their needs during the entire duration of the quarantine while risking their health to support their families while their regular jobs have been halted. These are the brave Delivery Riders, the unsung heroes that served as a bridge for us to buy what we need while we are in the comfort of our own homes.



Imagine the risk that they are facing every time they are on the road, with that in mind is the reason why Coun…

Experts urge public to take a closer look at drinking water

Health experts reveal that it is not enough that the water you drink looks clean to the naked eye. Your water should also be proven clean through lab tests, to avoid common water bourne diseases, such as cholera, dysentery, and gastroenteritis. Unfiltered water also has many potential contaminants, such as chlorine, heavy metals and allergens, as well as parasites.

Despite this, keep in mind that water is also important in everyday hydration. A document released by the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition cites hydration as a key to supporting the body’s ability to fight the COVID-19 virus and support the immune system, recommending 2-4 ounces of clear liquid beverages every 15 minutes.

“Keeping properly hydrated at a time like this refreshes our bodies and keeps the virus away,” said Dr. Sybil R. Bravo, a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital and a member of the Blood-Bourne Infectious Diseases Core Team.
