Caribbean Footwear Partners with UST JMA for the 2013 ATHOMIC Competition

Caribbean Footwear conquers this year's Annual Thomasian Marketers Intercollegiate Competition (ATHOMIC), a contest organized by the UST Junior Marketing Association (JMA)  and is participated by top universities within Metro Manila. The goal of ATHOMIC is to showcase the students' marketing and creative strategies of a featured product, and it is about Caribbean Footwear this year. 



The orientation seminar about the contest was held on February 2, 2013 at the Civil Law Auditorium in UST. Caribbean Footwear had a display booth where participating students and guests were able to see and feel first hand the quality of the flipflops. After each touch, almost all of them asked about the product and told us that they will head on to the nearest Robinson's Dept. Store, SM Hypermarket, or Save More supermarkets to get their desired pair.

During the program, speakers Francis Loseo and Denise Soller gave a background about Caribbean Footwear, from their humble beginnings to the known brand today. They also gave out the mechanics for the marketing case study competition for this year's ATHOMIC.

After the talk, a short contest was held among the participating schools. It was a poster snapshot competition where in each team would pose live on stage for five seconds. Winners could get the chance to be featured in the next Caribbean poster. Here are a couple of shots from the participants:



I was made judge for the poster contest. Woah I didn't see that coming! Since I am not a marketer, I used my perspective as an ordinary consumer. The photo that got my attention the most was....



...the evolution-like photo from students of Asia Pacific College! The angle directly focuses your eyes to the Caribbean flipflops being carried by the guy at the right. The facial expressions make you curious about the product. No explanations were needed for me to understand their concept! They nailed it and they deserve the win! 

At the end of the seminar, I could tell the students were excited to formulate marketing strategies for Caribbean Footwear.  A comprehensive kit, which included all the information and a pair of Caribbean flipflops, were given. The organizers of ATHOMIC, Caribbean Footwear, and I are all excited on what new and innovative ideas the students will come up. 

The winning team will take home a whopping PhP25,000! Participating schools are Colegio de San Juan de Letran, University of the Philippines Manila, Southville Foreign University, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Asia Pacific College, University of the East, and University of Sto. Tomas.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
