Halting for the Better, But Preparing to Bounce Back with KimRey


MANILA, Philippines – KimRey Face & Body Contouring Lounge will be keeping its doors closed in light of the ongoing Enhanced Community Quarantine. This is only our latest measure in ensuring the health and safety of our clients and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Doing Our Part to Inhibit the Spread of COVID-19

KimRey Face & Body Contouring Lounge is among the aesthetic clinics in Quezon City and Pasig, and we believe it is our obligation to keep our clinic free from anything that may threaten health and safety. Before the enhanced community quarantine took effect, we added multiple hand sanitizers throughout our clinic, and subjected both our interior and exterior to professional-grade cleaning and sterilization. Combined with mandatory sick leaves for our personnel and temperature checks for anyone who steps inside the clinic, we kept KimRey virus-free.

However, as we wish nothing but the best for our customers, we made the decision to close down temporarily on March 16th, 2020. We had originally planned to reopen on March 23rd, 2020, but due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, KimRey Face & Body Contouring Lounge is now closed until further notice. We urge all our customers to stay home and never forget to wash their hands to prevent any further spread of the virus.  

Doctor’s Advice: Looking Forward to the Future

The quarantine may have some effects on your skin and body, but KimRey will have you covered. We have many treatments that can improve your condition and get you back on track! The UltraSlim Pod Treatment is a highly-advanced device that in just under an hour will help you lose any weight you’ve gained during quarantine.

Meanwhile, our resident Dermatologist, Dra. Nanette Macalino, offers many varieties of the 360o Glass Skin and KimRey Signature Facials to brighten up skin and remove any dirt and blemishes from your face. Dra. Macalino also recommends the IV Nutrition Therapy treatments with 4 variants to choose from: Ivory for brightening, Hellenic for slimming, Ambrosia for inner glow, and Vitalogy for that health-boost.

The dullness of your skin, caused by being cooped up inside your home, will be gone once you try our inexpensive but quality treatments!   

Bounce Back at KimRey Face & Body Contouring Lounge

As soon as the quarantine ends, KimRey Face & Body Contouring Lounge will be ready to once again serve clients who wish to restore their beauty and bring out their inner glow. Finally, with safety still a concern, we will be implementing the same sanitation guidelines during the first few days of our reopening.

aminoVITAL(R) Sports Series Energized Kick Off


MANILA, Philippines – Following its support to the 30th Southeast Asian Games in the Philippines, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) kicked off its “aminoVITAL® Sports Series” on Thursday, January 30th, 2020, at Pretty Huge Obstacles in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

Powered by aminoVITAL®, Ajinomoto aims to promote different sports activities and active lifestyle among Filipinos through the Sports Series which will highlight endurance sports. Starting with Obstacle Course Racing (OCR), the members of the Philippine National Obstacles Course Racing (OCR) Team, who collected 10 medals (6 Gold, 3 Silver, 1 Bronze) at the 30th SEA Games, showcased their skills and strengths in a relay race.

“OCR is a unique sports because you need to be good at everything. It requires you not to only hone your running skills, but to also test your endurance and discipline as you undergo high intensity training,” said Glorien Merisco. Despite the mental, emotional and physical demands of OCR, Merisco reminded that no one should feel intimated by it as she herself had no athletic background when she started.  

Even after her successful performance in the 30th SEAG, she never stops to train hard, “I personally like challenging myself to be better every day…I may not be the strongest athlete, but I am one of the those who works the hardest.” aminoVITAL® is one with the OCR community in inspiring and encouraging people to get out of their comfort zones and give them the push needed to really make it too the next level.

APC executives and officers led by its President Tsutomu Nara welcomed the media guests and social media influencers. The 30th SEA Games karate gold medalist Junna Tsukii, Will Devaughn and Christiana Dimaunahan also graced the event and shared how aminoVITAL® helped them recover from muscle breakdown and fatigue that they commonly encounter in their line of sports. All participants took aminoVITAL® before hitting the obstacle course guided by OCR coaches.

What is aminoVITAL®?

aminoVITAL® is Ajinomoto’s newest sports nutrition brand. It is a jelly-based drink that contains 3,000mg of amino acids, including BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acid). It helps reduce fatigue and muscle loss during high-intensity training and strenuous physical activity. aminoVITAL® is convenient and portable. Simply consume aminoVITAL® 30-minutes before any activity and allow yourself to reach heights of physical accomplishments.

Recognizing the increasing demand and consumer interest in sports nutrition and wellness, Ajinomoto introduced aminoVITAL® to the Philippine Market in November, 2019. aminoVITAL® Sports Series is Ajinomoto’s advocacy to promote wellness, nutrition, and active lifestyles for all sectors of Filipino society.

“Proper nutrition and supplement is just as important as training and rest in sports as well as in cultivating an active lifestyle,” says Roann Co, Marketing Department Head of Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation. “We want to be able to support our esteemed athletes to attain optimum performance and reach greater heights and for more Filipinos to stay active and be fit and healthy.”

aminoVITAL® is now available on LazMart, an online store on LazMall, and selected Chris Sports branches at just PHP 100.00 per pack. For more information about Ajinomoto and its products, visit www.ajinomoto.com.ph and facebook.com/CookmunitybyAjinomotoPH.

Taal Volcano Eruption Update: Alert Level 4

Taal, Batangas update as of January 16, 2020.

Source: Phivolcs

Taal Volcano’s eruption has been characterized by continuous magmatic and hydrovolcanic activity that generated 700-meter tall dark gray steam-laden plumes that drifted to the general southwest.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Alert Level 4 remains, indicating a potential hazardous eruption, despite Taal’s reduced activity on Thursday

Taal is the country’s second most active volcano and one of the smallest in the world.

Despite the volcano’s calmer exterior, the Phivolcs official warned there is potentially dangerous activity underneath Taal. She said there are fewer volcanic earthquakes but its intensities remain strong. The volcano also continues to emit high amounts of sulfur dioxide. These signal there is movement of magma or molten rocks underneath.

Alert Level 4 still remains in effect over Taal Volcano. This means that hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days. DOST-PHIVOLCS strongly reiterates total evacuation of Taal Volcano Island and high-risk areas as identified in the hazard maps within the 14-km radius from Taal Main Crater and along the Pansipit River Valley where fissuring has been observed. Residents around Taal Volcano are advised to guard against the effects of heavy and prolonged ashfall. Civil aviation authorities must advise pilots to avoid the airspace around Taal Volcano as airborne ash and ballistic fragments from the eruption column pose hazards to aircraft. DOST-PHIVOLCS is continually monitoring the eruption and will update all stakeholders of further developments.

Keepr: How One App Can Help You Save Space at Home


MANILA, Philippines – Moms across Metro Manila now have an answer to all their storage needs with Keepr Storage PH. Available on both Google Play and the App Store, Keepr Storage PH is the best full-service storage solution that enables women to securely store and monitor their most treasured possessions right from their own phones! Keepr’s services start at just ₱399.00 a month.

Making Space is Never Easy

For many mothers in Metro Manila, clearing up space around the home is an all too familiar challenge. As times change and children age, it can be very easy for our things to pile-up, gather dust, and take-up an unnecessary amount of space.

“Extra storage allows us to better use our home for the things that truly matter,” says Keepr founder, Anna Moncupa. “It’s being able to have a full life and not being limited by small spaces.”

Keepr: A Service for Families in the 21st Century

Having relocated back to Metro Manila with her two children and partner, Jay Buensuceso, Anna Moncupa recognized a need for sustainable storage space.

“We’ve always liked being flexible in our space, having moved quite a bit around Manila and Los Angeles,” shares Jay Buensuceso. “When we decided to move back to Manila for good, we ended up living in a two-bedroom apartment because we thought it’d be a lot easier to maintain. It ended up being difficult for us since we’ve accumulated quite a chunk of possessions over the years, and barely had space for half of our belongings!”

Inspired by her experience using valet storage in the United States, Moncupa, together with Buensuceso, went to work on an app that could serve the needs of growing families in small, urban spaces.

“Keepr was inspired by our lifestyle abroad – the convenience and ease of having such a service,” says Anna Moncupa. “The real challenge was making it the perfect fit for Filipino families, and I think we were able to really step up to that challenge by making sure our warehouse is in Metro Manila. This enables us to cater to our clients more efficiently, allowing last-minute requests when needed. I believe that homes are living spaces, not storage space. We looked at our need of having just our essentials at home, and everything else in storage, but within reach.”
