Mich Dulce in Japanese Vogue Girl

So I figured Nippon Vogue Girl is the Japanese equivalent of Teen Vogue, which I finally gave up a few years ago since the fashion is no longer applicable to my age.
Saw this at the Hong Kong airport and just had to look.

Inside are dizzying fashion, I quickly flipped through the pages until I saw something very familiar

Johnny Air: The Best
Posted on

I can’t believe some people still don’t know about Johnny Air and how shipping through them will save you a thousand heartaches from customs fees.
My friend just ordered an iPad2 and has to pay PHP 11,000 in customs fees. Had she shipped with Johnny Air, my guess is she will pay only Php 2,500 (guess only ha).
Here’s a repost on how to ship stuff from the US to the Metro Manila via Johnny Air Cargo.
This should answer some of your questions. If you have other questions, don’t ask me, call Johnny Air.

Johnny Air at Megamall

Don’t you just hate looking at stuff online and not having a proper way to ship it to the Philippines?
You either need a good friend like Cedric to ship or bring it here, or you have to deal with corrupt customs officials at the post office.
My friend Becky, who likes ordering golf clubs online, told me about Johnny Air‘s shipping service.

What I did basically was to order a Kindle 2, DSi and special memory card from Amazon on April 27.
Had them shipped to Johnny Air in New York care of Analyn (see below) and emailed Analyn to expect an order from me.
She responds and thanks me for the business.
Last Sunday, May 3rd, I got a call from Johnny Air Megamall that my package was there. That’s an unbelievable 6 days later. And I only paid Php 1700++ for shipping. No need to deal with bribery and corruption.

Unlike other U.S. shipping services that cost an arm and will bill you separately for five packages from the same company (yes it happened to me), Johnny Air taped my two boxes together and charged me only one bill.
(P.S. I heard they don’t consolidate orders any more, so don’t expect your boxes to be taped. Just saying 🙂

Johnny Air

The Johnny Air guy was friendly pa. He seemed pleased that I got my order, asked what it was and if I would open it there. I said, no na.
I’ve also used the Johnny Air address on eBay orders. I can’t tell you how happy I am we have this, I just had to share.To use Johnny Air’s efficient shipping service, follow the simple instructions below:

Advertiser makes a stand on Willing Willie

Fastfood chain suspends ads on ‘Willing Willie’
By Karen Boncocan

MANILA, Philippines—(UPDATE) Jollibee Foods Corporation is suspending ad placement on TV5 game show “Willing Willie” amid a child abuse controversy, its media office said.
“Mang Inasal will be holding off ad placements from ‘Willing Willie’ this week,” the JFC Corporate Media announced Saturday on its Facebook page.
The announcement came as the drive to boycott products of the top-rating show’s advertisers gains support on various social media sites.
In a letter sent to Froilan Grate of Facebook group Para Kay Jan-jan (Shame on you Willie Revillame), JFC media representative Pauline Lao said the giant food conglomerate was “aware of the issues and the various sentiments raised” following the show’s March 12 episode, which featured a macho dancing six-year-old boy.
Lao said the corporation, which packages itself as family friendly, was keeping tabs on TV5’s investigation, stressing that it “remains committed to upholding the welfare of children.”
“We trust that the appropriate and expert institutions will also respond and look into this matter with urgency,” the JFC official said.
The boy, a contestant in the game show, was seen in tears as he was repeatedly egged on to simulate a striptease to the delight of program host Willie Revillame and the studio audience. It caused uproar on the Internet.
The government condemned the episode, with the Commission on Human Rights saying it was studying the possibility of filing legal charges against those responsible for the “child abuse.”
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board has said it received numerous complaints after seeing the show and would review the episode for appropriate action.
Social Welfare Secretary castigated the fast-rising broadcast station and Revillame for making the young contestant from a poor family to “gyrate distastefully” in exchange for P10,000 in prize money.
On Thursday, activist lawyer Ipat Luna reminded advertisers that they play a crucial role in “shaping the national soul” and urged them to “pull out of Willie’s show as a first step.”
“If poverty is the excuse for losing one’s dignity, I think companies like yours are in the best position to show that dignity can be had despite poverty and Willie’s show flies in the face of that possibility,” she said in her letter to the companies.
Oishi responded to Luna’s letter, describing the incident as “regretful,” and added that “we hope [this] will not happen again.”
“While we, as advertisers, do not control the actual execution and their artists during the show, we also want to do our part to avoid these unfortunate incidents,” Oishi said. The snack firm also said it was reviewing possible actions which “can yield actual, positive results.”
On Wednesday, TV5 television network said it was conducting a “thorough investigation” of the incident.
