If you’re looking for an avenue for expression of care for the community, and a means of purporting change through pragmatic means via the development of one small seed of an idea for change, then, you better watch out next year, youth. For Unilab has promised us that most likely, their recently concluded Ideas Positive Workshop just might happen again.

What exactly is being Ideas Positive?

Directly from their website, here is what Unilab has to say, aside from the fact that this campaign was initiated by none other than my OC 152 professor, Sir Barry 😉 :

As a culminating event, last September 25, Unilab held the last day of their campaign at the Unilab Bayanihan Centre, after screening teams that came from different universities. These teams were tasked in bringing their ideas while wishing to implement a distinct change on the lives of a certain community, with a solution put as a foundation for their platform. After posting their videos on the Unilab site, the top 5 teams, out of the total of 21, with the most ‘likes.’ reached the final screening and judging.

With hosts Riki Flores and Job de Leon, the positive and competitive tension was distinct as, one by one, the teams presented their proposals to the panel of judges that were called, as to quote, “it seemed that there was more than one Simon Cowell.” They are none other than Dr. Nina Gloriani, dean from our very own UP Manila’s College of Public Health, The fierce Dr. Ed Morato Jr. from ABS-CBN’s Bayan Foundation, entrepreneur Mr. Mark Ruiz from Hapinoy, Dr. Oscar Tinio from the Philippine Medical Association, Mr. Randy Aquino from the well-known PR firm Ogilvy & Mather, and Mr. Bert Manlapit, directly from Unilab.

Who were the final 5?

Teams were the following:

  1. The PET Society with Adopt-a-PET
  2. SERVE with “Ugnayan ng Nagkakaisang Inisyatibo, Layunin, at Adbokasiyang Pangkalusugan Barangay Sta Mercedes, Maragondon, Cavite”
  3. UB and G with “May Papel Ako”
  4. Team BIGGKAS with “Buklod Bukid Sowing Nutrition Reaping Hope”
  5. CLPH with “Mamamayang Ayaw sa Dengue”

And the winner is… Team BIGGKAS, notably from University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P)! 😀 Hopefully, your proposed movement for efficient greenhouses will truly render an effective impact for the propagation of vegetables the in the Filipino child’s diet.

We hope to reap more ideas soon. Positive in ideas, positive in action. 🙂


If you’re going around in Ong Pin or Binondo, it’s pretty hard to miss. That shade, that color. The wonderful world of Mr. Ube! The epitome of modern and funky Chinese cuisine, minus the ‘overly sosyal’ feeling!

Purple lovers, welcome to your heaven. 🙂

Owned by none other than the owner of Eng Bee Tin, Mr. Gerry Chua, who has been featured in The Philippine Daily Inquirer, has made it quite known that he is very fond of the color of Elizabeth Taylor’s eyes, even donating a local fire truck in that color. Mr. Ube is basically the culmination of his love of the color and his expertise in food.

What does Mr. Ube have to offer?

Don't forget to check the menu!

This place has a variety of Chinese meals presented on menu in affordable prices that befit their high quality tasting meals!

  1. Has over 18 noodle meals to choose from. All Chinese steaming-hot when served! Try their Sate Beef Noodles, which they highly recommend.
  2. Further into the menu: they have 5 rice toppings, 3 stir-fry noodles, and 5 side orders that go fantastically with their noodles! Must-try: Radish cake.
  3. Prices range from P30 – P150! All affordable and deliciously worth it!
  4. Technologically well-furnished, complete with automatic sliding door and well tuned sound system and lights!
  5. Interior design is a must-be-noted; well-coordinated colors and background music for that enjoyable and relaxing meal.

It’s simply an ube-rrific must-try! 🙂
