“I have the guidance and help of one very special lady.” | Piolo Pascual on Keeping his Promises

“But more than just earning money, it’s how you manage your finances that makes a difference. – Piolo Pascual

Relationships are built on promises: the promise to love, to care, to secure, to protect, and to provide. This is something that Piolo Pascual knows all too well, committed as he is to the promises he has made to his family as a son, a sibling, and a father.

But when financial troubles arise, bringing such promises to life becomes a challenge.

“Like any other person, I want to give my family the best life possible. I am a man of my word, that’s why I work hard and seize every opportunity that comes my way,” Piolo said. “But more than just earning money, it’s how you manage your finances that makes a difference.

Fortunately, I have the guidance and help of one very special lady: my very own sister, Chiqui Pascual-Gonzales, who also happens to be my Sun Life Advisor.”

According to Piolo, Chiqui has been instrumental in ensuring that his dreams for his family will all come true. “It’s a partnership through and through. With her help, I’ve been able to make it all happen while still pursuing my own passions and advocacies,” he said.

Piolo and Chiqui’s story is but one of many in Sun Life Financial, where lifetime partnerships are developed and nurtured through the years. In fact, this has inspired Sun Life’s latest campaign, at the forefront of which is a new TV commercial highlighting Sun Life’s presence in a client’s life throughout the different stages of her life. It represents the many promises that Sun Life has helped bring into fruition for the past 123 years of its existence.

Sun Life hopes that the campaign, as well as Piolo’s own story, will inspire more people to take the same path in their financial journey. “As the longest-standing life insurance company in the Philippines, we have witnessed many promises being fulfilled throughout the years and have served generations of clients. It is an honor for us to serve all our clients and help them secure their future and those of their loved ones” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa said.

“The promises we make to our loved ones are sacred, and Sun Life knows this. That’s why it’s committed to helping its clients achieve their goals, no matter what happens,” Piolo said. “You can’t ask for a better lifetime partner than that!”

Style and Socials | Creating Contacts at the Enderun Cocktail Night

The corporate dealings may it be inside the board room or at a social event space, set a code of specific pleasantry.

Collateral to Davao’s recent commercial fame, the city is gradually reshaping its venues for social events and corporate gatherings. After all, functions host social interaction which is imperative for every business partnership.

Events at Enderun Azuela Cove : A much-anticipated event site south of the Philippines

The latest addition to Davao’s array of spaces for social events is Events at Enderun Azuela Cove. Situated inside the so called cradle of the “crazy rich Asians” of Davao, Enderun’s tent is a 2,000 sqm. air-conditioned venue that can accommodate up to 1,500 guests, with a sprawling parking space, at the most strategic corner of the city.

The Events at Enderun Azuela Cove follows the same tradition as the first Enderun Tent in Taguig City. It offers a similar portfolio, handling corporate and social events as well as broader engagements such as conventions and exhibits. In addition to serving as a top-class event space, it is also set to be the anchor of a new Enderun campus in Davao.image

From crisp to creases : Linen over cocktails and contactsimage

Social events are electrifying. You are warming up almost every attendee to identify that common ground that ignites a promising business tie-up. Such excitement though, along with the intermittent sips of that enticing spirits in a glass makes us feel a bit steamy no matter how freezing the venue is.

Especially when you have found that soul-talker and the conversation gets really interesting, we tend to feel warm within that space from our skin to the undershirt and from your undergarment to your outer drape.  This is the very reason why I am more mindful of the kind of fabric I am wearing when attending socials.

I pick that fabric which prevents me from being near roasted and allows me to skip wearing the undershirt. I am obsessed with linen-made formal shirts recently. With either a mild or heady cocktail on my hand, it just breathes. It is cool and light to wear.

Linen easily wrinkles. That is the other reason why I love wearing it during events. It makes your look unique among the sturdy shirt clad invitees. It is the ripples that bring aesthetic to the look. It even emphasizes the cuts in your arms (which you were working out hard at the gym). It crinkles but still holds its shape specific to your body’s built. It looks care free yet still tidy.

STYLING SCOOP: Though linen easily wrinkles, I choose to press it with the ironing spray I use for my office Barongs when attending socials. The crisp exudes that sharp and credible first impression to every person you will meet during the earlier part of the event. Never attend the formal event with an already wrinkled linen shirt.

The beauty of garbing linen during event is like the euphoria we get to feel when sipping cocktails. You arrive at the event with it being crisp. Then, gradually creating the creases as you become more sociable as the conversation gets more involving.

The corporate dealings may it be inside the board room or at a social event space, set a code of specific pleasantry. But a crinkled shirt is not necessarily a code-breaking style. Not when it is a linen.
