WE ARE CAPE-ABLE

A

statement shirt reads, “Not All Heroes Wear Capes.” This is, perhaps, the truest statement. We see superheroes wearing black slacks, white and green collared short sleeves, black shoes, braving the traffic night and day. We watch them navigate massive ships through rough seas and risky areas. We see them getting up at the wee hours of the day just to get to the office on time and spending more time at work than at home. We watch them drive around on crowded streets to deliver goods safely and fast. We find them planting trees and joining hands with local residents on projects which will benefit the community. Unknowingly perhaps, you have become a hero in your own small way. Your cape is simply your ability to accept responsibility, complete your tasks, listen to the needs of others and recognize opportunities to grow and change. You are a hero who is always ready to go the extra mile and extend a helping hand. Celebrate that hero within. Embrace your journey and acknowledge your life’s purpose which is unique to you. - Strategic Communication

Chelsea Halloween Party: No tricks, just treats True to its promise, the Chelsea Halloween party on October 30 filled the baskets of trick-or-treaters with candies, and the children’s faces with excitement and laughter. The Halloween event was a Udenna Group-wide celebration with a superhero theme at its core. Children dressed up in colorful superhero costumes, filled the four corners of the Udenna Tower Lobby. Some employees also had the Halloween spirit as they strutted the hallways in their impressive and funny costumes. For the employee costume contest, Mark Lesther Alvarez from Strategic Communication Department dressed as Batman and Jazel Fetizanan of the Treasury Department dressed as Minnie Mouse, bagged the Male and Female Best-Dressed awards, respectively. Meanwhile, the Wolverine-spoof of Pankaj Chdiar and ‘Ed Calauagparody’ of Azer Sta. Maria shared the award for the Funniest Costume. For the employees’ children, Rylie Ysabelle, daughter of Ynah Gonzaga from Commercial Operations Department and Ethan James, son of Vizy Ann Toledo from Procurement Department, earned the Best-Dressed Kids awards. Without a doubt, this year’s Halloween event left the kids and employees with smiling faces and of course sweets-filled stomachs. “It’s all about building the Chelsea community, strengthening the relationships of our people, and making them feel cared for,” said Carolyn Uy, Assistant Manager of the Human Resources Department.

Companies urged to shift with consumers as Philippines’ digital economy keeps growing The Philippine Star | October 5, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — The average Filipino spent at least four hours on social media daily over the past years, and the demand for content continued to be insatiable as a larger portion of the population started to own mobile devices and gained access to the internet. Samuel Jeanblanc, market lead for Google Philippines, said the number of YouTube channels with at least 1 million subscribers tripled within five years. A result of this behavior was a shift in their aspirations from the local and traditional to more global and experiential, having seen the world vicariously through celebrities and influencers. At GetCraft Manila Marketers Meetup last September 17, Jeanblanc emphasized how such shifts in the market pose new opportunities for brands that will see a likely expansion in the local digital economy to $20 billion by 2025. But even before brands—especially long-established ones—can take advantage of the unprecedented growth, they would meet greater challenges in engaging a digital consumer base. Francis Chua, group marketing head at logistics group 2GO, observed that companies and marketers are now

dealing with consumers who have even shorter attention spans. The astounding amount of choices they are exposed to also influences how they perceive older and established brands whom they have become less loyal to. Consumers are now demanding more and higher standards from products and services for less, he said. “The brand that gives them what they want wins,” Chua said at the event mounted to guide marketers who are planning campaigns for 2020. He suggested that brands “go back to basics” and focus on the customer by being relatable and relevant.

Chelsea Logistics and Infrastructure Holdings Corp., the listed shipping and logistics arm of Dennis Uy’s Udenna Group, has taken over the management of 2GO Group’s SuperCat Fast Ferry Corp. “Taking the helm of SuperCat Fast Ferry is both exciting and rewarding as it will strengthen Chelsea’s shipping portfolio in furtherance of its business direction. With this new addition to our growing fleet, we can operate in more strategic areas, open new routes, and serve more passengers,” said Chelsea president Alfonsus Damuy. With the takeover of SuperCat, Chelsea is committed to ensure a smooth transition. “Rest assured, there will be smooth owner transition and operations will be business as usual,” Damuy said. SuperCat has 11 fastcraft plying the following routes: Cebu-Ormoc, Cebu-Tabilaran, Batangas-Calapan and Bacolod-Iloilo as one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries. Chelsea is a major shipping and logistics company in the Philippines. Last week, Chelsea announced it had acquired 100 percent of The SuperCat Fast from the 2GO Group.

“The acquisition cost is less than 10 percent of CLC’s total shareholders’ equity,” Chelsea said. In the first half, Chelsea posted a net income of P308 million, down 14.7 percent year on year. Revenues grew 28 percent to P3.5 billion.

Government to pursue game-changing reforms to sustain growth MSN | October 20, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Finance (DOF) said the government would continue to pursue game-changing initiatives in the second half of President Duterte’s administration to sustain high and inclusive growth and finally unlock Mindanao’s vast economic potential. Finance Undersecretary Gil Beltran said Davao City is at the forefront of Mindanao’s economic unfolding, playing a leading role in various sectors such as infrastructure development, agribusiness tourism, manufacturing, and transportation and logistics. Beltran said Mindanao contributed 15.2 percent to the country’s gross economic product in 2018. “I truly believe that Mindanao can sustain this high growth and be able to contribute more for the country’s development. And I think this is among our marching orders: to unleash and realize the potentials of the Land of Promise,” he told participants of a business forum in Davao City recently. Over the past five years, Beltran said the Philippine economy grew by an average 6.4 percent per year, while Mindanao’s average growth was higher at 6.7 percent. Among the regions in Mindanao, Beltran said Davao had the highest

20

growth rate at 9.3 percent. The chief economist of the Finance department said that “at no time in our history has there been a barrage of reforms” approved or implemented to bolster the economy. Major reforms last year included the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law that generates resources for the Build Build Build and anti-poverty programs as well as the Ease of Doing Business Act to streamline processing of government transactions, permits and licenses. Other laws passed were the national ID system to facilitate financial transactions and improve the delivery of government programs, the rice tariffication law that has started lowering the price of rice and will generate funds to place the rice industry on a more competitive footing as well as the Private Property Security Act to enable micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to use other forms of collateral to avail of credit. Beltran said among the reforms to be pushed by the Duterte administration in the last half of its term is the proposal to lower the corporate income tax and rationalize fiscal incentives, which constitute Package 2 of its tax reform program.

How to turn a warehouse into a powerhouse UPGRADEMag | October 23, 2019

Strong economic growth and a thriving export and import industry are spurring the development of the Philippines’ logistics industry. The country’s logistics and warehousing market is expected to reach a revenue of PHP1,100 billion (US$21 billion) by 2024, according to Ken Research. Some of the country’s top conglomerates have even started venturing into the logistics sector because of the strong growth potential. With more players entering the logistics market, the need for more technologically advanced and efficient warehouses rises. But even though technology and logistics are moving at a

phenomenal pace, the work culture at many warehouses is still stuck in the past. Compared to modern-day offices and their spotlight on the well-being of staff, some warehouses are simply depressing. Warehouses need to find a way to foster greater team spirit, collaboration and loyalty by providing the warehouse teams with a more comfortable, enjoyable and flexible environment that can nudge employees to bond and perform to the best of their abilities. The warehouse floor is a busy place and is certainly not the place for oversized beanbags, inspiration walls and an Xbox. But what’s

stopping warehouses from offering free breakfast snacks and fresh coffee pre-shift? If so, workers would show up in a good mood and perhaps even start their shifts earlier, knowing they are being valued.

10 Classic Pinoy superstitions FIlipinos are, by culture, superstitious. Superstitions about life and luck have been passed down from generation to generation. Parents pass it on to their children and these children will most likely pass it on to their own sons and daughters. Love, luck, birth, death, marriage, health or fortune, name it and Filipinos have a superstition for that. Some are silly and even go against good sense and learned judgment, but nevertheless, are amusing to contemplate. Here are 10 classic superstitions that are part of Pinoys culture: 1. Pagpag

3. Tao po? Tao po?

for the receiver.

Do not go straight home after attending a wake to shake off the spirit of the deceased. Or else, it might follow you home. Also, be careful not to take home food from the wake with you because it is inviting misfortune.

Saying “tao po” while knocking at someone’s door is more than just asking if someone’s home. Ancestors and older people believed that saying the phrase reassures the owner that the person knocking is human and not a supernatural creature.

5. Pwera Usog

4. Wallet + money = Swerte!

This is why older people counteracts the strong fondness over babies by saying “pwera usog” which is meant to counter any “usog”. The greeter is also encouraged to smear saliva on the baby’s forehead or toe in order to prevent ‘usog’.

2. Pancit for long life “Kumain ka ng pansit nang humaba ang buhay,” a common line from our lolo’s and lola’s. Pancit is an everpresent dish for birthdays and gatherings which is believed to signify long life.

Remember to put money inside the wallet or bag you are giving as a gift. Dropping some bills or coins in the wallet or bag is a sign of good fortune and is considered a positive financial blessing

Babies are adorable. Who wouldn’t admire babies’ small feet, small hands and soft cheeks? But be careful because it may be a potential cause for sickness which is referred to as “usog” or “bati”.

6. 12 round fruits for New Year’s Eve Part of the Pinoy culture is preparing 12 round fruits for the table during New Year’s Eve to invite good fortune. Serving of rice and salt are also encouraged to set the bountiful tone of the coming year.

7. Oro, Plata, Mata Popular in Southern Luzon among the Tagalogs is the Oro, Plata, Mata or the counting of stairs. According to Real Living magazine, when constructing cement or wooden stairs in the house, you must count them from bottom to top in a series of threes reciting the words ‘Oro, Plata, Mata’ which literally means gold, silver and death. If the top step coincides with oro or plata, it signifies good fortune. However, if the top step of the stairs coincides with mata, this means that a series of bad luck will befall the residents of the house.

8. Nuno sa punso Earth mounds also referred to as ‘punso’ usually near trees are considered home of “nuno” or dwarf. When passing or seeing a punso, Filipinos usually say “tabitabi po” to give respect to dwarves and other elements, and to avoid infuriating them.

9. Sukob There are two meanings behind the word ‘Sukob’. One is the superstition that advises against siblings marrying in the same year because it divides luck between two marriages, while the other one advises against marriage within the same year because it signifies death among a family member. Another wedding superstition says that the bride should not try on or wear her wedding dress before the big day because it will bring bad luck and cancellation of the

23

wedding.

10. A priest will come out of your wound This superstition is a popular scare tactic for Filipino children. It is said that scratching your wound will make a mutilated priest come out of there and haunt you. Do you believe in any of these superstitions?

Towards the Ocean We Need for the Future We Want The Philippines as an archipelagic nation has been blessed with vast natural maritime endowments, with a reservoir of rich and diverse fish, minerals and other marine resources, complemented by hard-working coastal fisherfolks, globally competent seafarers, able maritime executive, and ever expansivelooking maritime communities. While the potentials of our country’s maritime industry are limitless, our marine economy, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority, contributed only 8.1% to the country’s total GDP in 2018. Isn’t high time that we embrace our archipelagic status and tap the opportunities of a blue economy? In the recently concluded National Maritime Summit last 29-30 October 2019, speakers presented how the Philippine government and private institutions can work hand-in-hand to address the following and achieve our fullest potential as a coastal nation: (1) lack of sophisticated maritime research tools and programs, (2) undervalued marine wealth, (3) development of a nationally integrated globally competitive maritime industry, (4) inefficient intermodal transport system to facilitate the movement of people and goods across land and sea, (5) improved capability and capacity for offshore

resource explorations, (6) enhanced national maritime security, and (7) marine pollution and degradation. The participants capped the two-day conference with the adoption of a marine summit resolution to achieve a sustainable socio-economic growth and national security. The updated policy on National Marine Development will call for greater collaboration between private sector and government. As part of the growing blue economy, how can we contribute as SEAtizens? Here are 10 practical ways you and I can do to help save and protect the Philippine waters. Let’s get started! 10 things you can do to save the ocean 1.

4. Help Take Care of the Beach

2. Make Safe, Sustainable Seafood Choices

Whether you enjoy diving, surfing, or relaxing on the beach, always clean up after yourself. Explore and appreciate the ocean without interfering with wildlife or removing rocks and coral. Go even further by encouraging others to respect the marine environment or by participating in local beach cleanups.

Global fish populations are rapidly being depleted due to demand, loss of habitat, and unsustainable fishing practices. When shopping or dining out, help reduce the demand for overexploited species by choosing seafood that is both healthful and sustainable.

5. Don’t Purchase Items That Exploit Marine Life

Certain products contribute to the harming of fragile coral reefs and marine populations. Avoid purchasing items such as coral jewelry, tortoise shell hair accessories (made from hawksbill turtles), and shark products.

3. Use Fewer Plastic Products

6. Be an Ocean-Friendly Pet Owner Plastics that end up as ocean debris contribute to habitat destruction and entangle and kill tens of thousands of marine animals each year. Read pet food labels and consider seafood sustainability when choosing a diet for your pet. Never flush cat litter, which can contain pathogens harmful to marine life.

To limit your impact, carry a reusable water bottle, store food in nondisposable containers, bring your own cloth tote or other reusable bag when shopping, and recycle whenever possible.

threatened species on the menu or at the seafood counter. 9. Travel the Ocean Responsibly

7. Support Organizations Working to Protect the Ocean

Many institutes and organizations are fighting to protect ocean habitats and marine wildlife. Find a national organization and consider giving financial support or volunteering for hands-on work or advocacy. If you live near the coast, join up with a local branch or group and get involved in projects close to home.

Practice responsible boating, kayaking, and other recreational activities on the water. Never throw anything overboard, and be aware of marine life in the waters around you. If you’re set on taking a cruise for your next vacation, do some research to find the most eco-friendly option. 10. Educate Yourself About Oceans and Marine Life

8. Influence Change in Your Community

Research the ocean policies of public officials before you vote or contact your local representatives to let them know you support marine conservation projects.

All life on Earth is connected to the ocean and its inhabitants. The more you learn about the issues facing this vital system, the more you’ll want to help ensure its health—then share that knowledge to educate and inspire others.

Consider patronizing restaurants and grocery stores that offer only sustainable seafood, and speak up about your concerns if you spot a
