Natureal Taste in a Fresh Look

Containing no added sugars or preservatives, Natureal Juices is nutritious, no preservatives, and all the energy you need with great tasting flavour range like Mango Fusion, Calamansi and Passion Fruit. They also launched seasonal flavour like Green Mango.

                   “We want our customers to be able to experience the fresh and real taste of Natureal Juice without adding anything artificial or putting our juice through any process that will alter its color or taste says Marketing Manager, Ms. Alyssa Pang.

                   Natureal Juices  uses a process called High-Pressure Pasteurization (HPP), that significantly extends the shelf-life of Natureal Juice while maintaining its color, taste and freshness. Instead of heat pasteurization, which alters the color and taste of the juice, HPP processing uses up to 85,000 PSI (unit for pressure) to rid the juice of any living microbial content, which significantly extends the shelf-life of the product. Natureal Juice is the first in the Philippines to locally use the HPP process.

                   With these process, Natureal Juices shelf life when frozen can last to 30 days at optimum quality and can be stored chilled for an additional 90 to 100 days.

                   Natureal Juices first made its debut, 4 years ago at SM Lanang Premiere’s  Weekend Bazaar, and launched its permanent kiosk at the same mall as well. Since then, it has opened several more outlets around Mindanao.

With its popularity in the local market, the company is yet to finalize its franchise procedure, however expanding outside Mindanao is in the works, as they welcome resellers from Luzon and Visayas.

                   Natureal being now a household brand in the local market, also boost its new and fresh look, for customers to immediately enjoy and see the fresh experience. The bottle now features a new 3D look that is bold and eye-catching along with its new vibrant colour palette of yellow and green and purple.  

                   The company also launches a roadmap to boost its support to environmental protection by promoting recycling and reusing plastic bottles. They encouraged clients to make crafty DIY projects, to minimize environmental impact and even save money

          The Media Launch was held at Club Wailea last August 23, 2019, they also have a week-long promotional campaign with a kiosk situated at Gaisano Mall of Davao till August 31.

          Natureal Juices is a product of GFC Juicery Corporation located at R. Castillo St, Davao City.

The Return of Woody and Buzz

It’s been years since Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang said their goodbyes to their friend, Andy, which left all of us crying our eyes out at the cinema. These toys from our childhood are returning for another fun-filled adventure with new characters to love with the upcoming release of Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4.

                   As a treat to all fans, SM City Davao, SM Cinema, PressPlay Pictures Philippines, Inc., and Walt Disney Company Philippines hosted the advance screening of Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4, ahead of its release in all SM Cinemas.

                   Toy Story 4 is a magical movie to watch, along with its emotional and complex narratives that appeal to children and adults alike.

                   Toy Story 4 welcomes the newest member of the family, with Bonnie’s beloved new craft- project-turned-toy, named Forky. Forky declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, which Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy.

                In the newest installment, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep and introduces new characters like Duke Kaboom (voiced by Keanu Reeves), Ducky and Bunny.

                   Like the previous Toy Story, this newest Disney treat offers witty dialogue, creative plotting, recurring characters, and along with the new ones, an evocative score, and a heartfelt message of love, friendship and moving on.

                   SM City Davao offered customized photo booths, red carpet entrance, free popcorn, and drinks, as well as specialized Toy Story cupcakes for all the children. During the trivia games, Toy Story 4 exclusive movie merchandise items were given away that includes Toy Story 4 stickers, pencil case, set of pins and pouches.

                   Directed by Josh Cooley, and produced by Mark Nielsen and Jonas Rivera Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to Philippine theaters on June 20, 2019.

Classical Meets Modern:  Manila String Machine

Posted by on 9:12 am in Blog | 0 comments

 

Ayala Mall Abreeza’s mall-goers have been privileged to hear and witness the country’s best octet performance by the Manila String Machine last Feb 13, 2019, a pre-valentine showcase held at the Activity Center.

                   The group who is mostly composed of players and graduates from the top institutions here in the country gave awe-struck performances that made shoppers sit and watch the whole show.  Their genre encompasses a gamut of musical styles from classical to modern music, specializing in rock, pop, jazz and contemporary music. Their musicality is an eclectic blend of ideas and collaboration from each member, making their music, well-written, as well as unique-intelligently, and artistically.

                   Manila String Machine enchanted everyone, as well as getting people up in their chairs with their Manila Sound Tribute and All- OPM Tribute, like “Manila” by The Hotdogs,  “Kawawang Cowboy, “Handog”, TL Ako sa Iyo”, Blue Jeans, VST Medley, Up Dharma Down’s Tadhana, and  Eraserheads Medley.

                    “We wanted to represent po, lahat ng mukha ng pag-ibig, may asawa, single man o it’s complicated. Sana makaka-relate kayo sa aming mga musika”, according to violinist/ arranger Ms. Silke Hipolito.

                   The second show highlighted songs from ‘80s to 90’s and year 2000, spawning the hits of Bruno Mars, Clean Bandit, The Corrs, AHA, Bon Jovi,   Walk the Moon, Backstreet Boys.

                   The 3rd set was the most applauded, as Manila String Machine take the audience to listen to some of the most epic movie scores ever put up on the big screen, bombast with intensity and an uplifting and beautiful medley that takes us on a range of emotions that leaves us exhausted at the end. 

                   The repertoire started with their version of the “Star Wars” theme that flawlessly captures the feeling of action and adventure, to the most applauded “Bohemian Rhapsody” movie theme “, Love of My Life” and “We Are the Champions”.

                   The show was a pre-Valentine treat by Ayala Malls Abreeza, to all the shoppers and being able to witness it, I should say the feeling of elation didn’t fade for a long time.
