United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) National Ambassador Against Hunger KC Concepcion (second from left) recently visited families affected by Typhoon Pablo who are staying at the evacuation centers in the municipalities of Compostela and New Bataan in Compostela Valley province. During her visit, KC also distributed relief packs from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), which include complementary rations of WFP high-energy biscuits and iron-fortified rice. With her were DSWD XI Regional Director Priscilla Nidea-Razon (leftmost) and WFP Philippines Representative and Country Director Stephen Anderson (second from right).

Prior to the distribution, KC interacted with internally displaced people and assured them that government, WFP, and many organizations are working around the clock to help them get back on their feet.

UNO Magazine Launches Mocha Girls Special

Warning: The following post or the photos included in this post are Rated-18. You have been forewarned! ;) Disclaimer first, I am not actually a fan nor promote girl group that are coming too sexual/sensual, and honestly I hated the Mocha Girls when I first saw their performance of the "Gimme' gimme'" dance more than two (2) years ago. It was so promoting sexual fantasies or desires to anyone watching and seeing how those booties move, shake, and grind together with the sexy outfit that adds up to the heat, or wakes up the freezing mammal blood! But then, me and together with my Cousin's family were there in a bar in Antipolo to hang-out and enjoy, so after their performance, we were all lively dancing with each other (with the family, not with the Mocha Girls), while stealing some glances to the Mocha Girls! =D Autographed Dec.2013 issue of Uno Mag and 2014 Uno Mag Calendar (noticed that autograph from Jhane and Georgina? they both love me *wink*) Fast

Burger King Philippines Presents Battle of the Stacks King! Eating Challenge

“Are you man enough?” was the resounding question posed by Burger King Philippines to all those men AND women out there who are brave enough to take on its newest burger offering, BK Stacks, and vie for the BATTLE OF THE STACKS KING title. BK Stacks is Burger King’s made-to-order burger where anyone can choose 1, 2, 3, or 4 flame-grilled beef patties for their burgers! The BK Stacks is made even more satisfying with melted American cheese in between and crispy bacon on top, a generous smothering of the special BK Stacks sauce, and all held together by a toasted sesame-seed bun. Your manhood is tested by how many BK Stacks you can handle. A Single Stack is labeled as a “Dude” . Have a Double Stack and you’ll be known as the “Boss” . A Triple Stack promotes you to someone people look up to—the “Chief” ! And last but definitely farthest from the least is the Quad Stack, a burger only fit for the “King” ! Burger King launched the burger-eating challenge entitled Battle of t

Visayan Forum Commitment Week

"Since 2005, the Visayan Forum Foundation and the Philippine Government have been working together to help combat trafficking in every front. Since then, the intervention with the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) and multiple stakeholders has been recognized as a global best practice. Despite the overall success of the country's Anti-Trafficking efforts in prevention and protection of victims, the US State Department in its 2010 Trafficking in Person Report ranked the Philippines under Tier 2 Watchlist for the second consecutive year and it called the Government of the Philippines to demonstrate significant and increasing progress in prosecution and toward compliance with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking. In a news article dated September 28th, 2010, President Benigno Aquino gave a statement calling for tougher actions against human trafficking. Since then, the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) - the government's national body for t
