Tunog Transcom Tayo is now on its 2nd year

Transcom Worldwide Philippines offered its employees a world-class Musicfest dubbed as Tunog Transcom Tayo. Now in its second year, the event was conducted in three different venues to allow employees from Transcom's different sites all over the country to take part in the celebration. 

For Bacolod, Tunog Transcom Tayo was held at the SMX Convention Center last September 22. The event was graced by live performances from popular bands such as Ebe Dancel, Mayonnaise and This Band. 

The "Batang 90s" enjoyed old-time favorites such as Hari ng Sablay, Ipagtawad mo, and Laklak while the millennials had a blast with This Band's performance featuring songs such as Kahit Ayaw Mo Na and Di Na Babalik

It was indeed a night of fun and entertainment exclusive to Transcom employees and their family and friends. According to Mark Lyndsell, Transcom's CEO for Global English Region, "As we have been transforming our business in the recent years, creating a positive culture where our folks can express themselves has been and continues to be a key focus. Tunog Transcom Tayo, our annual MusicFest, is just one building block in the foundation that is Transcom Tayo and sits alongside our annual CSR activities, our support for the LGBTQ community, and our HIV and AIDS awareness campaign." 

Aside from the live performances, the event also included the finals of the Viral Voice competition. It is a Karaoke-inspired signing contest which is open to all Transcom employees. Paulo Malijan was hailed as the Viral Voice's champion where he bagged Php 20,000 cash, a trophy, and other prizes. 

Other finalists include Joebert Olarte (1st runner-up) Romelyn Sumaya (2nd runner up) and Wendele Cadagat (3rd runner-up.)

5 Easy Steps to Invest in Your Health

The question of investing in your health may seem like a no-brainer for many— after all, who doesn't want to be healthy? But the reality is that you might not be doing as much for your own health as you think you have been. The Philippine Statistics Authority reports that Filipinos' out-of-pocket health expenditures are on the rise, hitting Php 372.8 billion in 2017. In order to avoid falling into the trap of spending too much on hospitalization fees, it's important to keep on top of your health. Here are some ways to do that below.

Eat Healthier

The Asian Diabetes Prevention Initiative says that 60% of diabetics living in Asia, and without further lifestyle changes that number may soon be on the rise. Diabetes isn't the only disease related to diet: depending on what you eat, you may be at risk for obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, dental disease, and osteoporosis. In order to avoid these, the best thing to do is to be more mindful of what you eat. Maintaining a healthy diet reduces your risk for these diseases and more, and keeps you healthier overall.

Exercise More

The benefits of exercise have been discussed at length, but the surprising fact is that Filipinos don't seem to get much of it at all. The Sun Life Financial Asia Health Index found that 6 out of 10 of mid-income Filipinos don't exercise regularly, citing lack of time as one of the main reasons. Exercise can help increase your bone and muscle mass, reduce your chances of obesity, and increase your endorphins. It's important to get into the habit while you're young, so make the time now and hit the gym as soon as you can.

Sleep Longer

According to the 2016 Healthy Living Index Survey, 46% of Filipinos lack sleep. This makes the Philippines among one of the most sleep-deprived in the region. Getting enough hours of sleep is about more than just comfort: healthy sleeping habits lead to better concentration and productivity, a reduced chance of obesity, and a reduced chance of depression. So make sure you get those hours in!

Get Checked More Often

Another way to keep on top of your own health is to make sure that you're seeing the right professionals. Getting regular check-ups increases the chances of early detection, meaning that you can nip diseases in the bud with early and proper treatment. Your doctor can also provide you with a better nutrition or exercise plan, one that's tailored to your state of health. While the added costs of regular check-ups may seem like a hassle, you'll find that they'll pay off in the long run.

Invest in Health Insurance

Finally, one of the best ways to invest in your health is to simply invest in health insurance. Even with the best preparations, accidents or sudden illnesses can still happen, and when they do it's best to be prepared. If you aren't sure where or how to start, Paramount Direct has a guide on how to pick the best health insurance for young professionals. It's a comprehensive look at the common questions you might have about health insurance, as well as information about pricing and coverage.

Discover what’s standing between you and your success in preventing hair loss

There comes a time in your life that you have to stand up and say, “Enough is enough.” And that’s the day when you decide to change your life for the better. Who doesn’t want to become accomplished? Even the “gifted” and brilliant ones have to pay the price so as to realize their goals in life.

When we fail to eat on time, get enough exercise or sleep between seven to nine hours a day, we’re compromising our health and wellness as we reduce the maximum extent that our body must function. Consequently, the effects in our body may extend and manifest as early warning signs of hair loss.

Take it from celebrity beauty and salon expert Fanny “TF” Serrano, who once personally experienced such an ordeal. For him, avoiding harsh synthetic solutions and choosing to use the right products with natural ingredients is a must and still the best way to deal with mane problems like losing or thinning of the hair. 

With this in mind, embracing natural healthy lifestyle is so important to achieve optimal health, best physical condition and healthy full head of hair. Health products made out of natural ingredients are way effective for better healing and maintaining our body’s lifelong function than those of synthetic ones. Rather than investing in those branded shampoos or other hair treatments, there’s a natural way to help arrest hair loss and help remedy its four early symptoms, namely, excessive hair shedding, thinning hair, receding hairline, and bald patches. This is none other than NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss.
