Home Lab Tests from Hi-Precision Diagnostics. Join BLOTTO too!

During my pregnancy, I had to undergo a lot of tests. My doctor ordered tests so that she can assess how I was doing with my pregnancy. As I didn’t want to go to the hospital to have lab tests and blood tests done, I looked for an alternative service provider. After surfing the net, I found out that Hi- Precision Diagnostics does these tests for you.

They have home service! All you have to do is call 8741-7777 and then press 2. For all the blood tests and urinalysis that I needed, I had them all done from home. All their medical technicians / staff who does home visits are vaccinated and use PPE, so everyone is safe at your home.

Another thing that I love about Hi-Precision Diagnostics is that you can get your report / results online. This is a sample of the dashboard that I see.

You can download a copy and send the soft copy results to your doctor.

I really had a great experience using their service, so I highly recommend them to those who need to have medical tests done.

If you want to try out their services, this is the perfect time to avail a CBC and Platelet test. Hi-Precision Diagnostics is running a BLOTTO or a Blood Test Lotto where patients who have availed CBC and Platelet test will have a chance to win P250,000.

It’s so interesting since your Lotto numbers / entry will be from your blood test results! The drawn numbers must match the second number from the left in each chosen parameter regardless of the decimal point of the ticket owner in order to be considered as a winner.

Consolation prize of five (5) P 25,000 each will be given away to five (5) winners who will be selected after the promo ends

The promo period is from November 8, 2021- January 31, 2022.

What to Shop for at Globe Business Gift Local

Have you started Christmas shopping? I haven’t started shopping, but I’m not worried because it’s so easy to do your shopping nowadays. Everything is online. This Christmas, I plan to shop from the Globe Business Gift Local MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises). I would love to buy from local businesses to help them during these trying times. What I love about these MSMEs of Globe Business Gift Local is that these businesses give back to their own communities. When you buy once, you give twice!

If you’re interested to check out the products of these MSMEs, go to http://glbe.co/giftlocal. I’ll go through some of them here.

GreenLife Coconut Products

Virgin Coconut oil has a lot of health benefits. It is a quick source of energy, has anti-microbial effects, reduces seizures and a lot more. I’m thinking of giving these as a gift to my aunts and uncles, since I know that a lot of them would appreciate getting gifts that would make them healthier.

Greenlife has various products such as export-quality organic coconut vinegar, organic coconut sap aminos, coconut spirit, coconut sugar, coconut flour, organic VCO, and cosmetics. What I like about this business is that they support Quezon province farmers. Check out their products here! Every purchase gives their farming community a better life, thanks to the versatile coconut tree.

HTP Clothing

For my clothes, I usually like the simple and comfortable ones. Especially now that we are mostly at home (plus the fact that I’m breastfeeding), my number one priority is comfort. I just love these clothes from HTP clothing. I also love the founder, Ricca del Rosario’s vision of creating quality yet affordable clothes, and I truly support her mission of helping seamstresses from Bulacan, Quezon Province, Rizal, and Metro Manila. 

I think my sister and cousins will love these timeless tops, pants, bags, slides, and PPEs. They also have hassle-free reseller packages that start at ₱1,500 for 10 tees available on e-commerce sites.

Locano

You should always get good blankets! haha! Yup, that’s my personal belief. Sleep for me is very important. I guest it’s because sleep is “me-time” for most of us. To get a good night’s rest, you need the right “tools”. Check out this comfortable Fluffy Abel Blanket. I think this will be the perfect gift for our parents. These Locano’s woven crafts are skillfully pedal-loomed by the artisan women of Vigan and Santa, Ilocos and Bangar, La Union. This Globe Business Gift Local MSME brand is definitely something worth checking! Support their advocacy and shop for these exquisite pieces.

Malagos Chocolate

​​Another brand that I’m looking at for my Christmas shopping is Malagos Chocolate. Recently, I’ve been craving for Tsokolate / Hot chocolate most of the time. I would love and am super excited to try these products.

They also have an interesting story and cause. Malagos Chocolate started with rehabilitating cacao trees in Malagos (thus their brand name), Baguio District, Davao City. Aside from helping farmers, they have won several awards through improving chocolate processing, farms, nurseries, facilities, and factories. Help Malagos continue training and supporting farmers, and shop for their chocolates!

Roots Collective

And last but not the least, Roots Collective. I actually know the founders of Roots Collective and have been impressed by their mission to help local businesses thrive. This is why I’ve been constantly supporting and buying from them. They conduct social enterprise funding, rural community training, and inter-enterprise collaborations. They carry different brands and those participating at Globe Business Gift Local are BalaiKamay, Hineleban Farms,
The Bamboo Company, Chocoloco, Creative Definitions, Gouache, HABI Lifestyle, Happy Helpers, Hiraya Chocolates, Jacinto & Lirio, Magwai, Obrano, The Peanut Butter Junkie, Plantsville Health, Reef Picks, The Spark Project/Spark Books, Theo & Philo Chocolates, and Wholly Grain.

Those are a few of the brands and MSME businesses that you may see at the Globe Business Gift Local Page https://glbe.co/giftlocal. Do check out and support these local businesses.


A live selling event is also set on Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. via Globe Business Facebook page to provide Gift Local partner merchants a platform to promote their company and products for the holidays.

This year’s Globe Business campaign Buy Once, Give Twice (when you buy, you make your loved ones happy and you also get to help MSMEs) also helps MSMEs in another way. These businesses can also join Globe Business Academy where they are given access to business insights as well as networking opportunities.

Business owners can visit and sign up at https://mybusinessacademy.ph/sign-up/.

Globe Business helps MSMEs boost online sales via Saludo SMEs Digistore

How do you shop? Will you believe me when I tell you that most of the things that I have been buying now have been through online shops? I have probably left the house less then 5 times since March 2020. I do my grocery shopping online and I also bought baby stuff online, too!

I know that a lot of small to medium enterprises have been struggling to make ends meet during this pandemic. It’s so hard to generate the same amount of income and also still pay for your operating expenses that hardly decreased (it even probably increased due to things that are need to be purchased because of protocols).


Super amazed at the fact that Globe Business is bent on helping MSMEs (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) during these times. To provide a more accessible platform for micro, small, and medium businesses to sell more, Globe Business gave local MSMEs an opportunity to adapt to the popular retail trend and brought their products to where customers are shopping now through its Digistore, which was another live shopping event as a sequel to the successful pilot last year.

This was broadcasted live through Globe Business’ Facebook page last July 9 at 7 p.m.. This live selling event is one of several activities lined up to mark this year’s Saludo SMEs, an annual initiative by Globe’s enterprise arm to support and recognize the efforts and contribution of Filipino entrepreneurs to achieve sustainable economic development.


“We bring you once again this live shopping event to help small businesses tap into new channels that will bring their brand online and make a deeper connection with more customers. And on the other hand, offer a seamless and more enjoyable buying experience for shoppers,” said Gaile Guevarra, Brand, Integration and Communications Head of Globe Business MSME Group.

“As a staunch advocate of empowering every business to own their success, we remain true to our commitment to provide MSMEs with platforms and opportunities to grow and thrive in the changing times,” she added.


The Saludo SMEs Digistore Live Selling Event showcased a wide array of selected products—from brewed coffee and teas to organic baby products, salsas and hot sauces with a twist to curated furniture—by Globe Business clients and merchants from partner organizations such as the Anvil Business Club, DTI Negosyo Center, Entrepreneur’s Organization, and Let’s Eat Pare.


Here are some of the merchants who joined the event and their respective products that can be purchased with real-time chat and a few clicks of a button.

Silca Coffee Roasting Company


Fueled by the simple dream of making freshly roasted coffee accessible to all Filipinos, this 25-year-old family venture has grown to become one of the largest coffee exporters in the Philippines and among the top coffee suppliers to cafes, offices and restaurants. Now a second-generation business, it has successfully launched brewed coffee brand Kick-Start, which has three varieties—the Philippine Barako, Brewed Awakening, and Your Daily Lift. These signature blends, ready to give online shoppers their caffeine fix, will be featured at the Saludo SMEs
Digistore.

Tiny Buds

Tiny Buds is the go-to brand for a wide range of clean, natural and gentle mommy and baby products—from hand sanitizers to toothbrushes, t-shirts to breastfeeding supplements, diaper creams to bath soaps. Shoppers can learn more about the store’s bestsellers like Sleepy Time Baby Massage Oil, After Shots Vaccination Gel and Extra Sensitive Laundry Powder for Babies.

Be Global E-Commerce Corporation

One of the pioneers in end-to-end e-commerce services in the country, this company participated in the July 9 event, showcasing its curated home and office furniture for all your work-from-home essentials and home makeover needs under its Qoncept Furniture brand that can be availed at special prices.

Gerfina Food Products

For foodies who want to kick their favorite dishes up a notch, Germina Food Products’ unique selection of sauces and condiments will surely give their next meal a twist.

Prism Café

This cloud cafe based in Pasay City serves hot and cold brews, innovative refreshments and baked goodies right to your doorstep.

SEWN Sandals

SEWN Sandals features a collection of casual flat sandals that are wearable and easy to match, with designs inspired by Philippine raw materials, festivals, and destinations across the country. SEWN elevates the everyday “tsinelas” while striking just the right balance of comfort, simplicity and sophistication, and carries a purpose of supporting local communities of sapateros and weavers.

Bernabest Food Products

Bernabest is the company behind the famous Siomai House and Empanada Especiale. Its commitment to customer satisfaction is paramount, which is why the Company is primed to maintain the high quality and strict implementation of standard in product processes as approved by the FDA, HACCP, andGMP (AAA) certified by the NMIS.

Let’s join Globe Business in supporting local SMEs as they move forward through the changing times. I plan to support and buy from these stores and from other local businesses that Globe supports!

Globe Business Celebrates UN MSME day and Shares Initiatives for MSMEs

Saludo SMEs Tuloy Tayo

I’ve been an avid fan of Globe Business for quite sometime now. I love the initiatives that they come out with that help micro-small-medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the Philippines. This year, in celebration of United Nations MSME day, they announced Globe Business initiatives and campaigns for this year that would hopefully help a lot of our small and local businesses. This is a continuation of their #SaludoSME campaign that they launched 2 years ago.

The first initiative that they mentioned is the Digistore campaign. Basically, MSMEs will have time to market their products during an online live session and this will on July 9. Knowing the reach that Globe has, I think this is a good opportunity for MSMEs to showcase their craft. I’ll share more details on this soon.

The next things that I want to share is this nice thematic film that they released. This is entitled Saludo SMEs! Tuloy Tayo!

I love how it showcases the ability of Filipino entrepreneurs to adapt to any situation given. Technology plays an important role in the sustainability of a business, and this shows that all of us, business owners are capable of adapting and succeeding even amidst the presence of COVID-19.

This leads me to their next initiative which is inviting business owners to share their digital story. I have not much information on this yet, but I will surely share the mechanics with your once this campaign is released.

And last, but not the least, they are launching a loyalty program for business owners. In line with the three pillars of Globe Business which is 1) help businesses become digital leaders; 2) Enable businesses and 3) offer exclusive partnerships, the businesses will get a chance to get different perks like training, discounts, freebies, etc. from Globe Business and its partners.

So these are the things and the initiatives that were shared by the Globe Business team earlier today during their media launch. These surely are initiatives that will help your business gain competitive advantage, plan for business continuity, help your in adapting digital technology and help you in making your business successful this year and in the years to come!

Tara, NHA, Konek Tayo!

The right to internet access is a basic human right. This was shared by Atty. Marylin Pintor, UIndersecretary of DHSUD. I researched about it and it’s known as the right to broadband or freedom to connect (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_to_Internet_access).

I would have to agree since a lot of the things that we do online need internet connection. It shouldn’t be a luxury only accessible to those who can afford it. Having internet connection means that the kids in our communities get to learn. Teachers are not interrupted also in practicing their profession.

Another thing is that we will have the option to use technology for our day-to-day activities like paying our bills, utilities, etc.

And when it comes to looking for livelihood resources, the internet is also a powerful tool. It give equal opportunities to everyone so that they can earn a decent living. When the pandemic hit, technology has helped a lot in connecting businesses with their customers despite the challenges.

Recently, Globe and the National Housing Authority launched their partnership to connect 11 NHA communities to KonekTayo wifi of Globe. This means that a lot more individuals and families will have access to internet.

This is such a great initiative and I wish that this partnership will support more communities.
