UNO Magazine Releases The Mocha Girls Special

If you think that they are just a simple girl group who gets TV time by dancing and singing on variety shows, think again.

There is more to the Mocha Girls than just skin deep attraction.

Landing on the cover of UNO, the ultimate guide for men in the Philippines, proves there is more to them than just scintillating looks and come-hither moves. This all-girl pop group has seen its share of beautiful faces come and go. One thing that has remained constant is the founder and the person who lent her name to the group, ringleader Mocha Uson. She is fiery, spirited, and a true leader.

Mocha says what keeps the group going is the drive to reinvent itself. The current members were not there when Mocha Girls started seven years ago. But Mae, Franz, Seika, Georgina, Jhane together with Mocha have found a way to use each other’s strengths and complement them to form a cohesive, well-oiled pop group that thrives on reinvention.

Mae uses her sweet personality to create the group’s choreography; Franz comes across as the anti-thesis to pop with her naughty hip-hop moves; Jhane is both rocker-chic and alluring belly dancer; Seika provides the J-Pop flavor; Georgina brings the fashionista model to the stage and bringing it all together is Mocha, post-modern feminist and superwoman in one sexy, smart package.

Because of the versatile talent the girls bring to the group, Mocha Girls has earned its share of awards for their pop hits. With every new song they have released they continue to prove they are not a one-hit girl-group wonder. No wonder then that they bagged Best Dance Album in the 2009 PMPC Star Awards for Music for Deliciosa and Best Dance Album in the 2012 PMPC Star Awards for Music for 18+ Restricted.

In this issue of UNO magazine, readers and Mocha Girls fans will be treated to a veritable visual feast of the girls in different titillating poses. With lots of skin bared too. It’s like Christmas all over again. From racy poses to barely there clothing, the girls show that they can manage to capture a guy’s attention while sharing something sensible about themselves in the process.

The sharing by each member is what makes this UNO issue even more special. The informative featurettes on each member of the group provide a rare glimpse into how the girls think, how they feel about things and situations around them…think of it as a one-on-one date with a girl you like.

The girls even let readers in on their recent escapades abroad with an exclusive behind the scenes peek at their Japan and Canada tours.

And the surprise bonus? The issue contains a free calendar inside, featuring, of course, the Mocha Girls.

Go ahead, treat yourself to a dose of Mocha and her girls. It’s gonna be well worth it to find out what gets these six ladies going, moving, and rising up.

Krem-Top's Change For The Better Pilipinas Campaign

Can a brand bring about positive change towards community progress and nation-building? By encouraging everyone’s desire to change for the better during New Year, one brand did.

In 2010, Krem-Top was launched as a superior coffee creamer. In the moments when people were open to changing many things in their lives, Krem-Top inspired people to chart their destinies through small and simple resolutions. 

As Krem-Top started its Happy New Change campaign towards the New Year, Krem-Top encouraged Filipino’s positivism towards a bright future to be expressed in their resolutions. This was done through an ad that showed a series of changes that they promised to make. It challenged the viewers with the question – what will you change for the better?

In the succeeding years, Krem-Top continued the call for change through campaigns that emboldened people to be inspired and bring to life their resolutions. In throngs, people were motivated to make them no matter how small or mundane - all because everyone wanted to change for the better. 

For 2013, Krem-Top pushes the envelope, telling Filipinos that small changes when done together can effect a change not just for the individual but for an entire country. All it takes is the will and participation of the greater majority. 

Encapsulated in this year’s campaign line “Change For the Better Pilipinas”, Krem-Top’s advocacy asks not of big things but the small changes that one can actualize and perform.

With the help of Krem-Top’s brand ambassadors Papa Jack and Richard Yap, a declaration of a better Pilipinas will not remain as a vision but a reality.

Today, more than ever, many women lead active lives. They are driven, passionate, goal-oriented, and influencers in their own right. They are versatile and have mastered the art of multi-tasking.

The collection is also versatile – great for everyday use, working out in the gym, and hitting the challenging outdoors training, running, and trekking. 

For women who are into serious running, Pace Glove 2 is highly recommended with its excellent ground traction and secure fit. For those who are into running and training, Bare Access Arc 2 is ideal with its M-Bound cushioning that assures comfort in every movement. 

On the other hand, Mix Master Move Glide is a flexible shoe built for multi-activity use. It is light enough to be worn during road and track runs. Meanwhile, for women who are looking for stable shoes opt for Road Glove Dash 2. It gives you the stability you need without the added weight and bulk.
