Keep your Active Body Protected: Safeguard Active Body Wash with 12 Hour Odor Protection



When In Manila, good personal hygiene is one of the most important aspects of living a clean and healthy lifestyle. As a very active person, this is even more essential as my body is constantly going through rigorous activities. So making sure that it’s well maintained is something that I take very seriously.


It’s like the way we take care of our car. It needs to be maintained and cleaned regularly so that it can look great. Regular washing and waxing while your exterior is still in tiptop shape is needed before it’s too late and your paint starts fading.




For my body, I’m very particular. I have a very strict routine that I follow to make sure that I’m healthy and clean inside and out. For my showering needs, I definitely turn to the Safeguard Active Bar with 12-hour Shield as it is able to keep up with my active lifestyle.


Try out the new Safeguard Active Bar, or Safeguard Active Body Wash yourself! See the 12 hour odor protection shield you need to live an active lifestyle!


See it put to the test with this video of the Beat Coach Rio Event here!




What you waiting for?! Get yourself the 12 hour odor protection now! Try out the new Safeguard Active Body Wash.

The Torotot Campaign: Save a Finger, Blow a Torotot

For the New Year in the Philippines, it’s become tradition, and a necessity, for many people to get the biggest, baddest and loudest fireworks to light up themselves.

Problem is, that every New Year in the Philippines, there’s also hundreds of people who end up loosing their fingers, or more, due to faulty fireworks.

It’s because of this, that we at Mellow 94.7’s The Wake Up Show have decided to run the “Toroto Campaign!” (Twitter #torototcampaign).

Just in case you’re not familiar, torotot is just local slang for the New Year horns or maybe we can even sort of compare it to the vuvuzelas from the World Cup that we saw a flurry of. Either way, a torotot is something that won’t take your fingers away by accident.

In many other countries, fireworks are actually illegal and only those with proper permits can have those dangerous light shows. Moreover, fireworks cost a lot of money! Why risk your fingers and pay a lot of money, just to blow it up?

So I say leave it to the professionals. Head over to the malls, hotels or other venues who will be having the professional and better looking fireworks this New Year!

Oh and my partner Tracy also had more suggestions on slogans for this #TorototCampaign:

Tumorotot ka na ba?

I love a big torotot

Two thumbs up! – Because I still have two thumbs #torototcampaign

My torotot is bigger than your torotot

Mas masarap, mas masaya tumorotot

Do it the Torotot way

But for now, I think we’re sticking to the Save a Finger, Blow a Torototslogan.

Can you add more slogans for us to promote this? Please tweet and be sure to use the #torototcampaign hashtag.

Have a very happy and SAFE New Year! Spread the word about the #TorototCampaign!

Berocca Breakfast to Keep the Brain Sharp and Witty

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but what they don’t say is what should be part of this ever so important first meal.

I myself need to be quick on my wits and ready for whatever the day throws me. Being a radio dj / writer / host / blogger… I tend to have all sorts of important meetings and events I need to be at all day long. Bouncing around from one venue to another while trying to stay sharp and focused can be a very tricky thing to do!

I’m looking for vitamins that will help me survive my long hectic days, to be in the fast lane and out of the rat race.


Finally, a friend introduced me to Berocca! It’s like instant fuel. Furthermore, I found out that most Berocca users are CEOs, so if you want to outwit them and place yourself within their ranks, you have to have their secret – Berocca!

Berocca is like instant fuel for the mind! In today’s world, it’s those sharp minds who have the big paying positions and sit at the CEO desk!


And I did my own research, Berocca is a clinically proven combination of B vitamins and essential nutrients with a unique synergy of B vitamins (helps release the energy from the food we eat), vitamin C (colds buster) and essential minerals like calcium, magnesium and zinc (which are definitely needed by the body).


Berocca-breakfast-energy-drink-healthy-capsule-tablet-dissolve-in-water-wheninmanila-5 Berocca-breakfast-energy-drink-healthy-capsule-tablet-dissolve-in-water-wheninmanila-9

Anyway, Berocca comes in a very unique format: All I had to do was drop the tablets into a glass of water and I was ready to go on with the rest of my day with an extra boost of healthy stuff!

I liked taking mine early in the morning right before work to get my head in the game. Try it out for yourself!



Best of all, you can get the complete info on how exactly Berocca helps you perform better and why it gives you a boost by checking out their website here – http://www.berocca.com

6 Week Challenge Results! Did my filthy dirty mouth get cleaner?


I have to be honest, I was a bit skeptical about how much one product could really do for my filthy dirty mouth.

Six weeks ago, I was invited as one of a few bloggers to participate in this reality type challenge where we put the Listerine Total Care Mouthwash to the test.

We were asked to have our mouth and teeth evaluated before a 6-week challenge of using their Listerine Total Care Mouthwash. We had our teeth checked by the renowned dental offices of Doctor Villareal at the Bonifacio Global City’s St. Luke’s Hospital.

See that full post of Week 1 here – http://vincegolangco.com/how-to/6-week-challenge-to-clean-my-dirty-mouth/




Following that was a thorough weekly update of what I was doing and how I was feeling after using the Listerine Total Care Mouthwash.


Week 1 here – http://vincegolangco.com/how-to/6-week-challenge-to-clean-my-dirty-mouth/

Week 2 – http://vincegolangco.com/events/week-2-clean-my-dirty-filthy-mouth-report/

Week 3 – http://vincegolangco.com/cool-people/week-3-listerine-total-care-challenge-to-clean-my-dirty-mouth-report/

Week 4 – http://vincegolangco.com/contests/manly-balls-in-my-mouth-challenge-accepted/

Week 5 – http://vincegolangco.com/motivational/five-5-total-care-ways-to-prepare-for-life-relationships-dates-careers-and-your-future/


And finally, after 6 weeks, I went back to St. Luke’s Hospital to see exactly what had happened in my mouth throughout these past few weeks.

The results we unbelievable! I was in for a surprise like no other!


Vince results


I was not expecting my plaque to go down 78%, my tartar to go down 91% or my gum bleeding to go down 89%!!!! The odor thing might look bad on the chart, but from the start, my odor index was actually low, at a score of 1 out of 5, meaning “there is barely any odor”.” So there really wasn’t much more to go down from from there.




The dentist even asked me if I had gotten my teeth cleaned. I told them that I didn’t and they seemed really surprised as well. They also asked if I flossed a lot, and I had to admit that I missed out on a lot of flossing because of my busy schedule.

Finally, the dentists asked if I used Listerine religiously in the past 6 weeks. I told them that I had used it at least once a day but mostly, I would used it every time after I brushed my teeth.

But even beyond the numbers, I noticed that my teeth and gums do not bleed anymore. This was something the dentists told me is actually caused by plaque and tartar building up and seeping into your gums. I originally thought bleeding gums just meant that I had “sensitive” gums, but it turns out, bleeding gums means you have dirty teeth and gums. So I’m very glad to have them nice, clean and not bleeding anymore thanks to Listerine!




Anyway, I’m a Listeriever (Listerine Believer) now! No more bleeding gums and I’ve never felt so kissable in my life!

So When In Manila, be sure to keep that filthy dirty mouth of yours clean to make sure you’re ready for any kisses that might come your way! Take the TOTAL CARE CHALLENGE yourself to be a LISTERIEVER too!


Meralco Emerging Technologies for the NEW Smart Home: The Future of Electricity


Ever since that first lightning strike and the discovery of electricity, the world had moved forward in dramatic ways! Taking us from the age of darkness into the age of light. Perhaps no other discovery or invention has come close to creating such a positive charge in the human race, except for the internet. Now, imagine if those two powerhouses can work together.


I was completely amazed at the recent Meralco exhibit where they showed off some of their up-and-coming technologies to help better improve the lives of Filipinos from all walks of life.


There was an entirely new concept of how we can consume electricity more efficiently and also how we can integrate the use of the internet to better secure our homes and save money and power.

Meralco-Electric-Co-Company-Metro-Manila-Philippines-WhenInManila-7 Meralco-Electric-Co-Company-Metro-Manila-Philippines-WhenInManila-9


From Smart Meters that allow you the option for prepaid electricity, to Smart Homes that presented modern day automated solutions for today’s appliances, it was all there for us to behold.


Meralco-Electric-Co-Company-Metro-Manila-Philippines-WhenInManila-6 Meralco-Electric-Co-Company-Metro-Manila-Philippines-WhenInManila-22

I was particularly excited about the “Home Area Network” feature where you could control your internet connected lights, locks, curtains, appliances and event thermostat of your home. With just a click of a button on your phone or tablet you could control everything in your home, without even being home. It just seemed like a great way to monitor your house and not having to worry on whether or not you locked the door or left some appliances running while you are out of town.


Furthermore, I was thoroughly impressed with the Meralco Apps that would give you information and access to Meralco services at your fingertips. You’ll be able to calculate which appliances contribute most to your electricity bill. You’ll also be able to know your Meralco bill details, locate the nearest Meralco business center, find out scheduled maintenance in your area and so much more, all available on your iPad, iPhone or Android powered device.

Meralco-Electric-Co-Company-Metro-Manila-Philippines-WhenInManila-32 Meralco-Electric-Co-Company-Metro-Manila-Philippines-WhenInManila-29


Overall, it was an exciting day and one filled with wonder about what more the future might bring.

Thanks so much to Meralco for having me at this eye opening and geek-gasmic event!

6 Week Challenge to Clean my Dirty Mouth

Challenge accepted!

Recently, I was asked to participate in a 6-week challenge to clean my dirty, filthy little mouth! I was challenged to see if we’re really giving our dental hygiene the proper and total care that it needs!


When it comes to health, you make sure you are always in tip-top shape. From exercising regularly to eating a well-balanced diet, you give yourself total care. But when it comes to your mouth, are you sure you are keeping it totally healthy? More than just freshening your breath and eliminating embarrassing bad breath, are you giving your mouth the best care it deserves? LISTERINE, the #1 mouthwash brand in the country, has introduced its newest innovation to help you give your mouth total care and achieve total oral health – LISTERINE Total Care Mouthwash.

Listerine-6-Six-Week-Challenge-Mouthwash-a-Healthy-2 Listerine-6-Six-Week-Challenge-Mouthwash-a-Healthy-3

As the most advanced and complete LISTERINE, Total Care helps deliver on the 6 essential signs of a healthy mouth. Its unique formulation of four LISTERINE essential oils with zinc chloride and sodium fluoride helps  reduce plaque, protects healthy gums, strengthen teeth against cavities, prevent tartar build-up to keep teeth naturally white, and kill up to 99.9% of germs for long-lasting fresh breath.

At the recent press launch of LISTERINE Total Care Mouthwash held in Oceana in San Miguel by the Bay, LISTERINE introduced to the media and dental industry the 6-week ‘Dare to Get Total Care’ challenge. Led by health-enthusiast and LISTERINE Total Care ambassador, Drew Arellano, the said challenge will be participated by dental professionals, as well as influential bloggers, who will document their 6-week journey towards achieving the six essential signs of a health mouth with LISTERINE Total Care.

I started my challenge today by visiting the Dental offices of Dr. Villareal in the Fort Bonifacio Global City St. Luke’s Hospital.

Take the Wheat Grass: Grasstig Ka Ba health challenge at Watsons

Take the Grasstig Ka Ba health challenge at Watsons
When it’s summer, malling offers a welcome respite from the heat, work-related stress, boredom.

When you go to the malls this summer, you can drink wheatgrass juice for its all-round health benefits and get a chance to win cool items from the Easy Pha-max Wheatgrass Grasstig Ka Ba Challenge.

To join, just buy any of these Easy Pha-max products at select Watsons branches: 10+1 Value Pack, Wheatgrass Pure 30 sachets in a box, or Wheatgrass Honey 15 sachets in a box. Then go to the Grasstig Ka Ba Challenge booth and drink within five seconds one glass of Wheatgrass Honey to win one of these items (your choice): a Certified Grasstig shirt, tumbler or umbrella.

A purchase of Wheatgrass 10+1 Value Pack also entitles you to have a free live blood analysis (LBA) where trained nurses extract a tiny drop of blood from your finger tip. On a monitor, you see how your blood behaves inside your body. The LBA test shows the level of acidity in your body and helps detect health conditions you’re suffering from.

Called “super food”, wheatgrass purifies the blood, flushes out toxins from the body, lowers blood pressure and helps relieve constipation.

The Grasstig Ka Ba Challenge was held recently at Watsons outlets in Gateway Mall, V- Mall Greenhills, Market Market, SM Fairview Hypermarket, SM City North Edsa, and SM Mall of Asia. You can catch its final leg on May 7 and 8 at Watsons branches in Festival Mall and SM Megamall.

Easy Pha-max Phils. Inc. is the country’s leading distributor of wheatgrass-based health products.

Then and Now! How technology made my life better #NoonNgayon

Someone left a post-it on a note that was given to me in the office the other day. I looked down upon this yellow square piece of paper that probably took half a tree to make and thought to myself… WTF!


A Post it? I haven’t seen that in ages!  OMG, like really?

I just got me thinking about how much technology has improved our lives lately.

Instead of Post-its nowadays on my wall, I get posts on my wall from Facebook.


Instead of mountains of files I now carry around a tiny USB.


Instead of a courier pigeons or, even more ghastly: pagers, we all now have sleek cell phones that can call our friends direct instead of blurting out our most intimate words to an operator who types it out to be paged.


Oh and best of all, thanks to new technologies like Facebook, we’ve all moved on from those other prehistoric forms of communication… Friendster!

Life is indeed much better thanks to technology!

How has your life changed from technology? Join the Twitter conversation #NoonNgayon

Christmas Donation Drive: Haven for the Elderly

elderly col ban 8x20

Christmas is the time for giving.

Though many of us often get overwhelmed with happiness from all the gifts we receive, we must remember that giving is what this season should really be for.

Sharing your blessings with those less fortunate could be the best Christmas gift you could give yourself. Goodness has a way of coming back to you ten fold.

This Christmans, WhenInManila.com is helping out ActivAsia Inc., a Media and Channel Activation agency to give some help to those who need it the most. This year, for our annual Christmas Outreach Project: “Masayang Pasko nila Lola’t Lolo”, we have tied up with Haven for the Elderly formerly known as Golden Acres so that gift and cash donations can be solicited on their behalf.

You too can become a big part of this project and make Christmas a truly merry one for all the Lolo’s and the Lola’s who have been abandoned at the Haven for the Elderly.

Donation boxes will be placed in front of major toll plazas, toll booths and in the Skyway Customer service centers along the South Luzon Expressway to collect donations from Skyway motorists such as clothes, medicines, soap, sleeping mats, cleaning materials and other items for the residents of Haven for the Elderly.

A Giant Christmas Tree lighting event along the Sucat Southbound Exhibit Area was held to kick-off the donation drive last November 29. During the turnover of the donations, we will be holding a simple Christmas Get-Together on December 15, 2010 with the residents at the Haven for the Elderly home in Quezon City.

We encourage donations (old clothes, sleeping mats, blankets, soaps, etc.) for “Haven for the Elderly” from readers/followers of WhenInManila.com starting November 29 to December 13, 2010. Donation drop boxes can be found at the following tollbooths, toll plazas and customer service centers:

  • Nichols A and B toll plaza
  • C5 toll plaza and customer service center
  • Bicutan toll plaza
  • Sucat Northbound and Southbound Exits
  • Bicutan Northbound and Southbound Exits

Donations can also be dropped off at ActivAsia’s office located in 291 St. Joseph Street, Oranbo Drive, Pasig city.

Manila-Bulletin-3D-Newspaper-Launch-Bloggers-Event-Picasso-WhenInManila (17)

What’s really cool about this is that we also found out that the Manila Bulletin is definitely open to learning about the new digital marketplace and they’re trying to integrate themselves with the new times. Even better, is that we all found out that the Manila Bulletin knows how to throw one hell of a bloggers event!

Manila-Bulletin-3D-Newspaper-Launch-Bloggers-Event-Picasso-WhenInManila (18)Manila-Bulletin-3D-Newspaper-Launch-Bloggers-Event-Picasso-WhenInManila (15)

What Manila Bulletin did right, and many other companies have done wrong, is that they created an actual event that was so much fun, it’s actually worth blogging about. Instead of just giving the online publishers a press release that they would copy and paste, Manila Bulletin went the extra mile and gave everyone a fun filled experience!

First was the venue. The had their event at a nice and cozy suite at the Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences along Leviste Street in Makati. It was the perfect size for the small, intimate gathering exclusive to bloggers.

Third, the music was great! They invited Joshi Haas and Adam Arnold the new band called “The Gentlemen” who played nice acoustic sounds with both original songs and covers of famous other hits. Coincidentally, “The Gentlemen” are also top models which really scored more points with the girls…

They gave away designer eyewear from RayBan, Ralph Lauren, Prada, Burberry, Bvlgari along with top tech gadgets like the TWO iPod Shuffles, TWO iPod Nanos, TWO iPod Touches and an  iPad! Again, note that it was a very small and intimate crowd so lots of chances for everyone to win!

Maria Cecilia Bolalin-Loreto
When In Manila and The G-Spot with DJ Vince GBeing a full pledge mom and wife is a privilege but it’s hard to be a mother. It is a privilege granted by God and has so many deep and profound meanings that should be there in every mother on earth . It’s hard to be a mother with all it’s meanings , it is a full time job. Bottom line , i can be a mother by having my daughter call me mom , but to be a loving , devoted mother you have to earn it 100 % . In regard with this, some Moms like me forgot to think ourselves. I

wanted to have a even one day to pamper, treat myself, to relax, to revive living energy, to be refresh and

energize and have a break from daily life.

I’m sure Maria Bolalin Maria Cristina Bolalin Elizabeth Bolalin-Rivas will surely like and enjoy this treatment too. http://bit.ly/bOB1BV
