Ely Buendia for Bench Fix

That’s hot!


Music icon beyond his years, rockstar Ely Buendia joins the Bench family as Bench Fix’s latest endorser of styling products.
The songwriter, guitarist and former lead vocalist of the legendary Eraserheads helped defined a generation and, perhaps, the very sound of OPM in the ’90s. Today, his music continues to evolve with his current band Pupil.
In the realm of movies, Ely recently appeared in Quark Henares’ Rakenrol and has directed a 13-minute independent film entitled Waiting Shed, which was featured as part of Cinemanila’s Sine Barangay Festival.
As an endorser of Bench Fix products, Ely’s current favorite is Clay Doh Lite Molding Clay.


This lightweight product has an easy washout formula that allows you to restyle your hair any time of day—and the ability to keep hair intact while rocking and head banging all night long.
To achieve Ely’s rockability, rub a small amount of clay in your palms and work through the hair for that desired hairstyle.
Available in all Bench Stores, Bench Fix Salon, Watsons, and all leading supermarket and department stores.


Airport dreams

Funny how everyone except the government, it seems, dreams of improving our airport. Everyone from Team Manila to Kenneth Cobonpue, Budji Layug and Royal Pineda have all offered their services for free to do something about it.
The following video comes from Kenneth Cobonpue’s Facebook—a pro-bono proposal from Layug, Pineda and Cobonpue in cooperation with the National Competitiveness Council of the Philippines.

“It’s time someone did something about the worst airport in the world. We made this design because we believe that no matter how beautiful our country is, our airports give the first and last impressions. The plan is relatively inexpensive and simple to adapt, and involves renovating the interiors to allow faster flow of travelers between security, immigration and departure. The first step has been done. Lets hope our government moves on this proposal quickly.”

Change for good

Today we found out that SM Hypermart doesn’t only use paper bags and recycle boxes for groceries on Wednesdays—they do this everyday now, according to a Pasig ordinance.


Yes, I was shocked because in other supermarkets (Unimart, for instance) they sell their cardboard boxes instead of just recycling them.


S&R Price Club used to have all these boxes available for groceries; now they are hard to find.
So hurray, SM!

Feeling Christmas

Filipinos love giving food gifts during the holidays. Most of the time they give food they personally love, hoping the recipient will love them too. But while most food gifts come from people’s home-based businesses, we forget that some great companies also offer Christmas treats that won’t go to waste.
Take for example Häagen-Dazs Christmas cakes, made of super premium ice cream.
Although Häagen-Dazs has a good selection of ice cream cakes to choose from all year-round, they have created three limited edition cakes just for the holidays.
The Christmas Wreath is raspberry sorbet plus green tea, chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, and mango ice cream on a bed of cereals and dark chocolate, topped with white chocolate shavings.

The Rainbow Log is made of Häagen-Dazs’ most special ice cream and sorbet flavors, housed between thin layers of dark chocolate and topped with berries.

Yuletide Charm is luscious strawberry cheesecake ice cream, surrounded by snowflake-patterned chocolate, swirly chocolate décor, strawberry stars, mango bauble, and kiwi wedges on top of strawberry coulee.
