Samgyupsalamat Day continues this March



Since 2012, Samgyupsalamat has offered premium unlimited Korean BBQ experiences to diners across the Philippines. With over 70 branches nationwide, Samgyupsalamat only continues to grow bigger. As the first and the #1 unlimited KBBQ restaurant in the Philippines, Samgyupsalamat has become a delicious avenue for Filipinos to celebrate their small and big wins – and to bond over Korean food with family, friends, and loved ones.


In Korea, March 3 (3.3) is celebrated as Samgyeopsal Day. This unofficial holiday celebrated on the third day of the third month corresponds to the literal meaning of samgyeopsal which is "three-layered meat" (sam (삼; 三) meaning "three", gyeop (겹) meaning "layer", and sal (살) meaning "flesh”).




To honor this day, Samgyupsalamat declares March 3, as Samgyupsalamat Day in the Philippines, offering unlimited KBBQ for only ₱333 on March 3, 13, 23 and 30. Even better, Samgyupsalamat fans will get a chance to win a free trip to Jeju Island in South Korea by taking part in Samgyupsalamat’s Hallyu Challenge!”.

Samgyupsalamat’s Hallyu Challenge!

According to Engr. Daryl Dexter Julio, one of Samgyupsalamat’s Directors, "The growth and recovery of Samgyupsalamat have been phenomenal. Despite the pandemic, we have remained strong with the support of our loyal customers. We have felt the love from our countrymen for more than a decade. And despite the challenges we all faced, despite other companies copying us, Filipinos continue to support Samgyupsalamat. So it is our turn to say Salamat starting March 3.”

Pasig City Mega Market is the First in NCR to be PalengQR Plus Ready & Activated! 

Pasigueños, pinamalengke mo, i-GCash mo na!


The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in collaboration with GCash, continue with their campaign to promote financial inclusion for all Filipinos with the recent roll-out of the ‘Paleng-QR Ph Plus’ in one of the biggest public wet markets in the country, Hurray for the Pasiguenos because it's the Pasig City Mega Market!





Paleng-QR Ph Plus was launched in Pasig City Mega Market in partnership with 
BSP, DILG, and GCash. Pasig is the first city to launch PalengQR plus in NCR.


Leading the launch were  BSP Governor Felipe Medalla and Deputy Governor Bernadette Romulo Puyat. All eyes, ears, and cameras were set on Pasig City Mayor Honorable Victor Ma. Regis Sotto was spotted at the said event too. He welcomed and thanked everyone, and is excited about the PalengQR Plus launch and the convenience it'll bring to the community. Honorable Vice Mayor Robert Vincent Jude Jaworski Jr., and the entire Pasig City council were there in full support as well.

Deputy Governor Bernadette Romulo Puyat



To facilitate a seamless implementation of the Paleng-QR Ph plus program, GCash set up a booth at the Pasig City Mega Market to assist in the onboarding of new merchants. Financial literacy sessions are also conducted for market vendors and topics include building the habit of cashless transactions in markets and availing of different wealth management options such as GSave, GInsure and GLoans using GCash

 


At dahil d'yan Pasigueños, mapa-market vendors and tricycle drivers to the mamimili, will now have the access to a safer and more convenient cashless experience through GCash QR code.


Advantages of paying using your GCash app via QR code

  1. Cashless na ang punta sa palengke. 
  2. Level up and very techie na ang pagbabayad, Scan the PalengQR Qr code na lang, pay and thats it! :) 
  3. Exact Payment na kaya no need mag-antay or maghagilap ng sukli
  4. Di na malulusutan ng pekeng pera because it's all out there via digital wallet
  5. May Transaction Receipt and History for better tracking ng gastos/income

*data/internet/wifi connectivity is required while using the gcash app

Currently, approximately 2,055 Pasig City market vendors have been on-boarded for the GCash QR payment acceptance, bringing an overall total of about 957,620 public market and MSMEs around the country already accepting GCash cashless payments using QR codes.

 


Ultimately, this sustaining initiative is driving the growth of the digital ecosystem in the country, especially in the grassroots economy. According to Leny, Meat Section President of Pasig City Mega Market, “Malaking tulong sa akin ang GCash sa aking negosyo dito sa palengke at sa aking araw araw na buhay.”

 


She also added, “Yung mga bayad na tinatanggap ko via GCash QR nagagamit ko na rin pang bayad ng bills at pang online shopping kahit na busy ako sa palengke. Higit sa lahat, nagagamit din ng aking buong pamilya lalo na ng aking mga anak na ginagamit din nila sa kanilang mga sariling negosyo o pang emergency.”

 


With a shared vision of a cash-lite society, GCash, BSP, and DILG have been working closely together to mount the Paleng-QR Ph plus in various cities and municipalities across the country. Now also accepting GCash cashless payments via QR codes are Baguio City Public Market, Bankerohan Public Market in Davao City, Dao Public Market in Tagbilaran City, Lapu Lapu City Public Market, and the People’s Market in Naga City.

 


Over the years, GCash and BSP have launched various financial solutions and advocacy programs making Filipinos’ everyday lives better. Moreover, their strategic partnership is helping consumers become more financially capable and empowered while enabling micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), including start-ups, to grow their businesses and uplift their livelihood.



The GCash app is available for free on Google Play or the App Store.

 Watsons Promotes a Healthy Lifestyle With Race for Wellness




Over 6,000 participants from casual and serious runners to fitness enthusiasts, groups of friends, and families joined Watsons Race for Wellness on Sunday, March 5. The event marks the brand's enduring commitment to becoming Filipinos’ ultimate health and beauty partner. Watsons helps Filipinos achieve a balanced lifestyle through its holistic solutions, products, and services for every wellness and medical need.

 

There are many benefits to a healthy lifestyle. It lowers the risk of diseases, prolongs life, lifts the mood, and makes one look their best. This can be attained through a variety of ways: eating healthy food such as fruit and vegetables, lowering one’s intake of sugar, salt, and fat, and staying active.

 

With the Race for Wellness, participants chose between the 5K, 10K, and 21K categories, all of which have surprises along the routes. Runners were energized by drum beaters and cheerers as they go through Pinoy-themed and Wellness zone obstacles. Apart from these, foam and water fest stations were also set up. “Kuya Kim” Atienza, celebrity endorser for Watsons Brand Vitamin B Complex, and Geneva Cruz were also spotted having fun while keeping up with the challenges. An awarding ceremony was held for all the category finishers who completed the race in the shortest time possible.

"The fun run is one of Watsons’ many ways to wellness, with the ultimate goal of encouraging everyone toward a healthy journey of always looking and feeling their best. Good health is a right and is needed to lead happy and productive lives. It, however, requires effort and making the right lifestyle choices. Watsons makes it easier by making health and wellness products, services, and information accessible to all,” says Jared De Guzman, Watsons Director for Customer Division.

 


Medical Associations namely, Philippine Foundation for Vaccination (PFV), Philippine Physical Therapy Association (PPTA), and Philippine Alliance of Patient Organizations (PAPO) were also present at the event to bring their support and amplify the call for health and wellness.

 


Cancer survivors from the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) have also participated and raced for their continued wellness.

 


The Filipino’s health and wellness partner

Watsons is leading the way in promoting and providing access to holistic health and wellness solutions, expert care, advice, and a platform for health literacy. The health and beauty retailer accomplishes this through its wide and complete range of vitamins, supplements, over-the-counter or prescription medicines, personal care products, and other essentials. All these are available at affordable prices.

 

Customers can access these products through Watsons’ network of over 1,000 stores in the Philippines, all staffed by pharmacists and specialists qualified to give expert care and advice. The Watsons Health Hub is an online one-stop shop that offers subscription plans, laboratory and diagnostic tests, teleconsultations, and more.

 

Watsons also makes it easier to access medicines and other essentials. Customers can purchase and pick up their orders from their selected store in 30 minutes or less through Click & Collect Express, or receive it at their doorstep through the Home Delivery Express.

 

Lastly, Watsons also drives health and wellness literacy through information and education programs, in partnership with the DOH and medical associations.

 

When asked about what's next after Race for Wellness, De Guzman shares, "At Watsons, we recognize that health and wellness come in different forms, thus we strive to cater to various interests and needs. Today, it is about running, but in the coming months it could be about biking, dancing, practicing mental wellness, and the list goes on."

 

"This Summer, for example, we'll be focusing on how Watsons can be every Filipino's partner when it comes to their complete health and wellness summer essentials. There's a lot in store that we're excited to share soon. And it's all in line with our goal to create an accessible and inclusive space for health," he ends.

Megan Young reveals her secrets to staying happy, healthy, and vibrant. Not worrying over money is one of them. 

 

Being the first Filipino to win the Ms. World crown, Megan Young has license to lead an ultra-glam life, but people will actually be surprised to know that she is “matipid.” In fact, she and husband Mikael “Fofo” Daez has a finance system in place where they have two bank accounts—one for expenses and one for savings.

“I plan it out with my husband kung ano yung gusto ko, trips I wanna go on, K-pop merch na I wanna buy or new experiences na we both wanna try,” says Megan in her latest Instagram video post about living a vibrant life. That means sticking to the budget despite the “wants”. “If I know I can’t afford [the designer bag], bakit ko bibilhin?”

Megan Young inspires everyone to live a happy, healthy, and vibrant life with FWD Life Insurance

For Megan, planning your finances is one way to stay happy, healthy and vibrant because “you can enjoy and have peace of mind.” Why would you overcomplicate your life with unnecessary spends that’s not part of the budget?

Aside from being matipid and taking care of your finances, the actress and TV host on GMA’s The Best Ka! also included nutrition, exercise, self-care, and relaxing via traveling in her tips to lead a vibrant life in her video collaboration with FWD Life Insurance.

Megan Young puts great focus on living a healthy lifestyle.

Nutrition and physical fitness 

While the rest of the world do no-carb diets, Megan considers a meal incomplete without bread or rice and dessert! (Hallelujah!). For her, we should not be depriving ourselves with the food we want to eat. “I love having carbs, carbs, carbs! And also meat and dessert. We want to make sure we treat our bodies well. We can eat 80% healthy food and 20% kung anong gusto nating kainin.

Rather than focusing on diets, people should focus on creating a healthy lifestyle.  A diet puts her in a mindset that she needs to eat less, which should not be the case. It all comes down to moderation. Plus, exercise. (The secret to her smashing body, perhaps?)

That’s why even if she finds it hard—often second guessing herself like the rest of us why she is even doing it—she always makes sure she works out.

Financial planning

When you want to experience more out of life, she says, plan accordingly. (For additional health and financial tips, check out FWD’s blog). And she did not mean just the luxuries and the “wants”.

Plans should also include the things that are important to you and your family like your health and your future coz we can never really be sure of what can happen. “Health protectionkailangan na ring i-budget ‘yan dahil mataas na rin ngayon ang medical expenses so we make sure that we have insurance para less worries.”

And it’s important that all bases are covered. A product like FWD Vibrant Critical Illness Insurance does that, protecting you from wellness to treatment to recovery. You’re covered from before you get a health problem up to when you get diagnosed and all the way to your treatment and recovery.

Quite impressed, Megan enumerates every benefit you’ll get from it. “With FWD Vibrant, you can get cash for health screening so that you can monitor your health; you’ll also receive cash for medicines to support your recovery in case you get sick; and for your peace of mind, you can claim up to 6x for major critical illnesses; and on top of that, you get minor critical illness coverage worth 25% of the benefit amount. So, you can focus more on your health and celebrate living!”

Travel 

While planning is very important, there are times when we just need to let go and enjoy and appreciate life. As Megan advises: “Pause and take a breather!”

Taking trips abroad is when Megan gets to do this. This is the time when she and her husband can just relax and go with the flow. In her trips for instance, Megan likes to go to places that lets her get out of her comfort zone. There was even a time when they just went on a trip in Japan with no prior plans beyond the airport. After all, where they go and where they stay while abroad are not half as important as how they enjoy it. “Enjoy your time with your family and loved ones. Or even if you’re going solo, just pause and enjoy the view.”

But don’t get her wrong. For Megan, planning is essential and is the precursor to living a vibrant life. Knowing you’re all covered—your health, finance, your family’s needs—gives you the freedom to just enjoy and let go. “We save up and take care of our health para ma-enjoy talaga namin these things. To do that, we always make sure that we work out and take care of our finances.”

How about you? What are your secrets? Here’s a tip: start doing it! In the words of Megan, “we all deserve to be happy, healthy, and vibrant!”

Get complete health protection with FWD Vibrant

Megan Young reveals her secrets to staying happy, healthy, and vibrant. Not worrying over money is one of them. 

 

Being the first Filipino to win the Ms. World crown, Megan Young has license to lead an ultra-glam life, but people will actually be surprised to know that she is “matipid.” In fact, she and husband Mikael “Fofo” Daez has a finance system in place where they have two bank accounts—one for expenses and one for savings.

“I plan it out with my husband kung ano yung gusto ko, trips I wanna go on, K-pop merch na I wanna buy or new experiences na we both wanna try,” says Megan in her latest Instagram video post about living a vibrant life. That means sticking to the budget despite the “wants”. “If I know I can’t afford [the designer bag], bakit ko bibilhin?”
