The 5th Asia-Pacific Housing Forum

The Asia-Pacific Housing Forum 5 (APHF5), organized by Habitat for Humanity (HFH), is a biennial conference that brings together local communities, socio-civic organizations, the private sector and the government in seeking to provide solutions to the problem of housing accessibility.


This is the first time APHF5 will be holding a satellite event on September 3 to 4 at The Manila Hotel. This event is in alignment with the main conference in Hong Kong. The Philippines’ theme “Building Impact” focuses on advocacy for housing subsidies, putting into action the organization’s mission of bringing people together to build homes and communities. 

“Now is the time to put our words into action: to focus on real solutions and how they impact our communities. More than discussion, this year is about implementation – how innovation is driving affordable and sustainable housing, how diversity is pushing different ideas into reality, and how decent housing can truly transform our communities. But this transformation is possible only if the key players come together and collaborate with each other,” says Charlie Ayco, Managing Director and CEO of Habitat Philippines.

Worth Trying: mySlim Yerba Mate Drink and Dietary Supplement

As a blogger, whenever I have an assignment to review a restaurant or join a foodie gathering, I always get the question, how come I'm not as big as the others? Not to offend anybody with this post, but I honestly don't know how to answer such question. I mean, come on, to be honest, there are days that I feel so big, while there some days that I really feel light and, ehem, sexy. But to answer the question, I eat like a normal guy. I don't really too much, unless it's a pizza or my mom's kare-kare. One reason why I think some people think I'm still fit is because I keep my self busy with lots of stuff.


But lately, age is taking its toll on me. With my busy office life, I rarely have time to go out - to exercise or to do something adventurous. And with a career on Marketing, where gathering is like stuffing yourself with so many delicious food every single time, I’m having a hard time digesting all of those delicious food. But thank goodness, a friend of mine recommended the mySlim Yerba Mate Drink and Dietary Supplement.


I must admit that at first I'm quite hesitant to try these. I'm not a fan of multivitamins or any drugs per se. I just think that it's too meticulous to maintain such vitamin as these. But on my first week of trial, I immediately notice the effect and to be honest, it gave me such delight that made me maintain it until now.

Meet the First App-based Interactive Motoring Magazine

Throttle Philippines, the first App-based interactive motoring magazine in the Philippines, recently kicked off in a testosterone packed party that saw the gathering of elite hardcore motorcycling clubs and muscle motorcycle displays. Proudly developed by an all-Filipino team, Throttle Philippines was built to give Filipinos everywhere a fast and easy access to the latest news and updates in the motoring industry.


“The motorcycle industry is growing very fast in the Philippines. We believe it will continue to grow and that saturation is still very far from happening,” says Nelby Oquendo, Marketing Manager for Throttle Philippines. She added, “our team came out with Throttle Philippines because there is clearly a distribution challenge preventing good materials from reaching more readers. Application usage is highly ubiquitous in the Philippines, where there are about 18 free apps being installed every day, among them are 4 paid apps on an average. Apart from that, the Philippines is easily the the fastest growing smartphone market in the region, therefore, our advocacy to provide free information is highly doable.”

Throttle Philippines will be published monthly, with 12 issues a year. Throttle Philippines’ maiden issue coming out this August.
