The Frontliner Today: A Media Platform with a Purpose

Since the COVID-19 national lockdowns began, the term “frontliners” has emerged to capture the vast number of people who are still valiantly reporting to their job sites and risking their personal health to keep the economy in motion while the rest of us are safe in our own home. Yet the term itself is informal; the term has been used in many recent government announcements as officials introduce new measures to stop the spread of COVID-19

Most of us continue to rely on media stories and our experiences in daily life to identify frontliners such as military and health care providers. But there are millions of more workers on the frontlines like sanitation agents, news reporters, and food crews that are also working in stressful and frightening work environments that some of us may not see and failing to recognize. Despite the hardships and health risk, they earn significantly lower wages and few benefits while receiving less public recognition for their roles, despite their sacrifices.

I'm so grateful that despite the negative news thriving on social media, there's a platform like The Frontliner Today that exists to document and share narratives of resilience by Filipino people online. A platform that leverages the power of social media that not only sells services but inspires and supports people and communities through the power of story.

The Frontliner Today
The Frontliner Today, in partnership with Food for Frontliners Philippines, is an independent online media organization with the sole aim of documenting narratives of resilience. Their existence is to document these narratives were fueled by the challenges that we have been facing during these trying times. They envision itself as a leading online media organization with a purpose and to transform the entire nation of the Philippines by fostering human connections through their purposeful narrative works.

Frontliner Stories and Quarantine Reflections
The Frontliner Today, are currently looking for stories to be featured in their platform whether it's a quarantine reflection that the public can submit or an inspiring story of volunteer frontliners that they can feature on their upcoming postings. They are looking for the following people to feature until December 2020. Volunteer frontliners can share the risks and challenges they face, the concerns they have, and how they are coping so that each of us can do better to protect and extend support.

September 2020: Military people (military men manning checkpoints, other military men frontliners) 
October 2020: Psychiatrists/people working for mental health
November 2020: News reporters
December 2020: Food crew

Find New Fashion Trends at Lover-Beauty

I know I’m supposed to be all about summer right now, with fabulous summer dresses and swimsuit sale happening, but I’m just not ready to give up my love for all these long sleeve tops yet! How can you resist all these beauties? Especially these two beautiful vintage-inspired top with dreamy see-through sleeves and delicate detailing. Combine them with a pencil skirt or your favorite jeans and be ready to conquer the city.

The yellow green long sleeve jacket looks really perfect for any casual occasion and I will definitely be able to wear this while pairing it with denim pants. I spotted them all at cheap online clothing stores. This is now my new favorite in their store and I will definitely have to order more in a different color.


Anywho, if you consider shapewear to tone your muscles down, firms it up, shave off your tummy and make panty lines disappear for a smooth finish... well, you're not alone. The market is flooded these days with a number of admittedly confusing undergarments, each serving a different purpose. As much as you wanted to have them all but the prices are quite expensive. Good thing I have discovered lover-beauty, a webstore where they can offer you shapewear that is a perfect fit for your body shape, with different styles and purposes. With this, you can create a perfect silhoutte and feel fabulous in a body skimming dress or that new pair of skinny jeans with a little help from their shapewear collection.

Finding the best shapewear is no longer a problem with the lover-beauty webstore. You can easily find a great variety of best affordable shapewear which are made of top quality materials and unique style. Below are some of my favorite, I'm sure it will give me a smooth perfect-finish to my new purchased figure-hugging dress.

REVIEW | Get Radiant with Revlite SI

A beautifully healthy and glowing complexion is coveted and admired by many. Although there are so many beauty products out there that were created to give the effect of a flawless complexion and promise so many things, it can be seriously overwhelming, none could quite compare to having the real thing.

Luckily, we live in the age of technology and innovation, where there is no problem that cannot be remedied. And I'm so lucky to have been chosen to try the gold standard laser machines with a revolutionary technology -- the “RevLite SI” and I’m very thankful to Spectrumed who made it all possible.

My first visit at Spectrumed to try Revlite SI

The sound of a laser being used on the skin can sound quite scary to some, or you might think it sounds like something for your grandmother. But the truth is, RevLite SI is a versatile machine that uses the latest and most advanced laser technology to provide safe, fast, and effective treatments, and the earlier you start taking care of your skin, the better! Always remember, early prevention is better than cure.

RevLite SI is the gold standard of laser machines and can be used to treat various skin concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, acne scars, and tattoo removal. Treatments that use the machine are perfect for men and women looking for fast, safe, and effective treatments. There are no downtimes, prolonged recovery periods. which is great if you are a busy person. It’s no wonder celebs, socialites and beauty enthusiasts love it.

Here are more benefits of the treatment
• Fades wrinkles and fine lines
• Skin Rejuvenation
• Clear and even skin tone
• Acne Scar Removal
• Full-spectrum tattoo color removal
• Hyperpigmentation
• Underarm Lightening
• Plumper and more elastic skin

Personal Experience
Upon entering Spectrumed’s office, I was greeted and led to the laser treatment room. Knowing that this would be my first-time laser treatment, the laser technician very carefully explained and described the different sensations, sounds and smells that could be experienced during this treatment. She then carefully inspected my face and placed a laser protection eyewear over my eyes… and then the treatment began.

My first session for underarm treatment

My second session for facial treatment 

I felt a warm, tingling sensation from the laser on my skin, but it was very tolerable. I also smelled this burning scent during treatment that I really thought was my skin but actually, it was just the fine facial hairs that encountered and targets by the laser. On the other hand, Revlite SI laser is mainly used for skin rejuvenation and reduction of fine hair. The treatment was very quick. For my whole face, it lasted for only 15 minutes or less and another 8-10 minutes for my underarms. The whole thing only takes about 25 minutes and then I can be on my way because there is no downtime whatsoever. This type of laser technology does not cause damage to surrounding skin tissues, which means that there is no downtime or side effects.


There may not be a day-to-night difference after only one treatment, but effects can be seen immediately and I’m so amazed. What the Revlite SI treatment does is it shrinks the pores in my skin. It evens out my skin tone, brightens and gave me glowing skin, and also gets rid of fine lines... I'm so amazed. This laser treatment is comparably safer and more effective than the application of topical products because it addresses the root of skin darkening, which is excess pigment cells.

The result of my 2nd session for my facial treatment (no makeup)

The texture of my skin was noticeably smoother, and the enlarged pores were noticeably reduced after my second session. That was my most favorite thing RevLite SI Laser has done to my face and of course, my underarms.

Difference between Revlite and Revlite SI
The Revlite treatment is a skin lightening treatment that delivers quick, safe, and effective skin smoothing and lightening.

RevLite SI can treat skin indications such as wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, acne scars, and tattoo removal. Designed with advanced features, the machine is a complete workstation for various skin indications. With Smart Infinite handpiece, treatments can be done twice as fast and are more effective as well.

To see is to believe. It's time to see the results of Revlite SI laser treatment for yourself. But before booking your appointment, make sure to verify that the clinic is a Certified RevLite SI Clinic. A certified clinic has a Revlite plaque of authenticity clearly displayed for the customers to see.

Importance of going only to Certified Revlite Clinics
• To ensure that you are getting the real treatment
• To ensure that the machine that you are being treated with is properly maintained and calibrated by expert engineers using the manufacturer’s tools and equipment.
• To ensure your safety during the treatment
• You always get the best results when you use real Revlite

Don't Pay Cash, PayMaya!

PayMaya accelerates digital payments adoption in the Philippines with launch of new brand campaign

  • "Don't Pay Cash. PayMaya!" promotes better than cash benefits with new features and rewards
  • Enjoy the best of everyday transactions with the convenience of PayMaya
  • Massive brand campaign supports the government's Financial Inclusion Goals

[26 SEPTEMBER 2019] Filipinos now have more reasons to go cashless as PayMaya launches its "Don't Pay Cash, PayMaya!" brand campaign promoting a more convenient and rewarding payment experience for all Filipinos nationwide.

PayMaya ramps up its efforts to increase cashless transactions in the country with the launch of its “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” Campaign, along with a fresh new look, exciting app upgrades and more rewarding promos. In this photo are executives from PayMaya Philippines (from left to right): Raymund Villanueva, Head of Growth and Brand Marketing; Mitch Padua, Chief Product Officer; Kenneth Palacios, Head of Wallets Business; Paolo Azzola, Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director; Orlando B. Vea, Founder and CEO; Shailesh Baidwan, President; Miguel Fernandez, Group Chief Finance Officer; Mar Lazaro, Head of Enterprise Business; and Heidi Garayblas, Head of Brand and Marketing Services. 

Through the upbeat consumer campaign, the digital financial services leader unveils an enhanced PayMaya mobile app, exciting new features, and more compelling merchant partner promos, as well as the best cashback promos and discounts for an overall more rewarding experience for all users.

PayMaya's new brand campaign features a catchy jingle with lyrics promoting the best perks of going cashless, set against the tune of the song "Ligaya" popularized by the iconic OPM band Eraserheads. Through the campaign, PayMaya encourages all Filipinos to get more joy and value out of daily transactions by opting to use PayMaya instead of cash for all their payment needs.

CUTENESS OVERLOAD: Attendees of the “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” Launch were entertained by PayMaya’s official mascots, Maya, who danced to PayMaya’s newly launched jingle to the tune of the iconic Eraserheads anthem "Ligaya." 

"PayMaya is undoubtedly the best way to pay in the Philippines today. Our formula is simple – make digital payments accessible, more convenient, more secure, more rewarding, and more fun. With a newer and smoother app experience, the biggest discounts and cashback promos, and an ever-growing network of merchant and add money partners, it's now better to 'PayMaya' instead of paying with cash," said Paolo Azzola, Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director of PayMaya.

Better than cash rewards
PayMaya is taking the lead in unlocking the multiple rewards and benefits of going cashless. With the pre-holiday and e-Commerce sales just around the corner, using a PayMaya account for everyday transactions is the best way to get the best discounts and cashback for all your purchases.

Cashless convenience, just a click away: Attendees of the event experienced firsthand the cashless convenience featured in the “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” campaign launch with seamless payments via PayMaya QR available at the Eattogether Food Hall in Capitol Commons. 

Just for September alone, PayMaya users can get as much as P5,000 in cashback from the various promos rolled out by the brand. All one has to do is use the PayMaya app for prepaid load and gaming pins, bills payments, sending money, PayMaya QR transactions with partner merchants, and online shopping.

Even getting a PayMaya account gets more rewarding as PayMaya is giving as much as P200 just by registering with a referral code and upgrading their account.

"We're just getting started and this will get more exciting as we gear up towards the holiday shopping season. Our goal is to make every Filipinos embrace digital payments by multiplying the benefits of going cashless," said Azzola.

Better than cash experience
To usher in a next-level experience, PayMaya has updated the mobile app to make it easier and safer to use.

The most popular services such as Sending Money, Buying Load, or Sharing Treats are now easily accessible with just one tap at the home screen of the app. Under the PayMaya Shop, one can also find more variants for digital goods such as telco load, gaming PINs, and treats vouchers - with the best discounts through promos.

Funding one’s PayMaya account is also easier–users can add money from your bank account through InstaPay or by linking their credit* or debit card.

PayMaya places high importance in security. All PayMaya users are encouraged to upgrade their accounts not only for higher transaction limits but also for safer transactions. To facilitate this, PayMaya has introduced a simpler and faster Upgrade process featuring selfie and AI technology. PayMaya also recently unveiled a sexier and safer black card design with the card number and other sensitive information at the back, instead of being displayed at the front.

Better than cash: Influencer Ashley Chan shows off her PayMaya card which sports a new, sleek design, as well as an added layer of security for instagram-savvy Pinoys. With her PayMaya in hand, she can easily hop on the cashless lifestyle and unlock awesome rewards! 

The new app design, initially available to Android users and also soon for iOS devices, prominently features the latest promos and perks that account holders can take advantage of, so that they can easily discover ways to make the most of their money with PayMaya. "Expect more features and services to roll out in the coming months. Our goal is to make the payments experience of every Filipino hassle-free and more secure," explained Azzola.

Don't pay cash. PayMaya! 
With all these brand-new features and exciting new promos for users, PayMaya's "Don't Pay Cash. PayMaya!" campaign targets to accelerate digital payments adoption in the Philippines. This is in support of the National Financial Inclusion goals of the country and the aim to increase digital transactions in the country to 20% by 2020 under the National Retail Payment System (NRPS).

PayMaya is the only financial technology company in the Philippines offering integrated consumer and merchant payment solutions with the widest on-ground branch network. It is the first to give millions of Filipinos an e-wallet that allows them to pay cashless transactions at any time of the day, anywhere in the world, and from any device. It is the financial technology arm of Voyager Innovations, the leading technology company in the country backed by PLDT, KKR, Tencent, World Bank’s IFC and the IFC Emerging Asia Fund.

Its “universal payments platform” enables the country’s top eCommerce sites, major retail and quick-service restaurants and government institutions, as well as MSMEs to accept multiple kinds of cashless payments.
