Licealiz Leads Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto

About one-third of elementary public school students in the Philippines suffer from head lice problems. Children are either teased, bullied or ignored for having head lice, which is a common cause for some of them to miss school. And though parents try their best to comb out their children’s lice with their "suyod", it is often not enough to remove lice that can lay up to 100 eggs in a lifetime.

As a part of their Kilusang Kontra Kuto effort to raise awareness about lice infestation issues in the Philippines, Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo will be conducting Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto in Cebu, travelling to different schools and barangays all over the city to educate communities on lice prevention and treatment by arranging shampooing programs and activities for students and parents.

Aside from being an inconvenience to their hosts, head lice are a menace to the whole community. They are easily transmitted in homes and schools, between friends, classmates and family members and the stigma associated with being infested can leave lasting damage to people’s reputations and psychological well-being.

“We want to empower local communities by giving them the information and materials they need to get rid of lice for good, along with the negative connotation attached to being infested,” says Licealiz Senior Marketing Associate Jacquiline Pe. “Everyone can be potentially infested by kuto. It is not a disease or something to be ashamed about, and those infested are not to be ridiculed. It is a problem that can be solved with proper support from every member of the community.”

This November, the Licealiz team has already travelled to different schools around Cebu including:
- Pardo Elementary School,
- Guadalupe Elementary School, 
- Talisay Elementary School, 
- City Central Elementary School, and 
- Inayawan Elementary School, 
They will be at  Marigondon Elementary School on November 14, 2016 for Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto. They have already visited schools around Luzon and will be visiting more schools in Visayas and Mindanao over the next few months.
Licealiz invites everyone to join the Kilusang Kontra Kuto in changing the public’s perception about kuto infestation and spreading correct information regarding head lice prevention and treatment.

Jollibee "I Love You Sabado" is back!

Remember the Jollibee's I love you Sabado jingle?
The lyrics goes something like...“Isang tulog na lang, Jollibee na naman! Ang araw lulubog, bukas mabubusog… Sa Chickenjoy manok at Yumburger bilog! I love you Sabado, pati na rin Linggo! Hintay ka lang Jollibee, nand’yan na ako! Panlasang Pilipino, at home sa Jollibee!”

Been a fan to this jingle :)
Years back, this jingle was always been played in TV or Radio AD, no wonder it inspired Filipino families to look forward to weekends as a chance to bond together after a busy weekdays. We can't afford to have "Saturdays at Jollibee" but we can afford to spend those precious weekends with our kiddos. Who wouldn't love weekends --- no classes, no work, time when you have those "palanay mode" (chillin) moments  --- so as much as possible, we make sure to spend our Saturdays and Sundays together.

Did you know that Jollibee re-launched this adored jingle? Yes, they did! Though there has been revisions, it was polishe…

When Baby Bath Time Is Made Easier

While pregnant we gear up ourselves with information of how-to’s and think that we have it all figured out but once the little one arrives, our world turns upside down.
One of the things we go frenzy with is the bath time, at first I was clueless (and I guess till now) on what to do but the good thing is, I have two great women who shared their best practice in bathing the little ones:

My Mom
My mom uses layered towels on the table (to absorb the water) and a basin of lukewarm water on the side. The baby is laid on the towel and the bath time begins.

My Mom-in-law
Her one-hand method may sound complicated. For her, it’s easy as 123, baby on the one had - head on the palm and the rest of the body on the arm - while one free hand for the soap and water. 

Old methods maybe overwhelming but with new and old things combined we get a hassle-free making bath time a breeze for new moms.
