New Generation of Samsung Digital Appliances offers Solutions for Energy Efficiency and Space

Technology is ever evolving, but it has always been aimed at aiding everyday tasks. Samsung has taken on the higher pursuit of offering people a better lifestyle. Thus, armed with state-of-the-art electronics and a passion for innovation, Samsung has come up with their new lineup of digital household appliances that will ensure a happy home.

Air Conditioner With Triangle Design

Among their breakthrough inventions is their new air conditioner with triangle design. In a country that is notorious for its sweltering summers, a proper air conditioner is almost mandatory. But the difference between this new Smart Air Conditioner and an conventional air conditioner is clear. It does not just produce cool air; it has been tailored to be more efficient and cost-effective in this task. Thanks to its carefully engineered triangle design which allows for bigger fans within a more compact body. Thus, it circulates cool air faster, farther, and wider while maintaining a sleek look.

The new Smart Air Conditioner is equipped with Samsung’s Digital Inverter Technology. It can maintain the desired temperature without frequently shutting off and on, so it consumes less energy. The Digital Inverter Technology helps users to stay comfortable for long periods of time, while using the minimum amount of energy – of up to 60% less electricity than conventional air conditioners.

Designed to be outstandingly efficient, its uniquely triangular design has a wider inlet, wider outlet and a bigger fan to ensure that air is cooled and expelled faster (26%), farther (14m meters) and wider (39%) – ensuring even air distribution and powerful cooling.

Also, the new air conditioner begins cooling the air fast using its powerful Fast Cool mode, to cool down the room faster. It then automatically changes the mode to Comfort Cool to maintain the desired temperature. Users won’t feel cold and don’t have to keep manually changing the settings or turning the air conditioner on and off.

Energy efficiency is a key purchasing decision for consumers. The Samsung Air Conditioner’s Single User mode gives the flexibility to the user to control the capacity by effective use of energy. It uses less compressor capacity, reducing power consumption, while still providing a cool and comfortable environment. This ensures that users won’t have to worry about the electricity bill even if there’s only one person in the room.

The new Samsung Air Conditioner features Samsung’s exclusive Virus Doctor that keeps families safe and comfortable through innovative air purifying technology, which neutralizes harmful contaminants in the air. The Virus Doctor feature has received various accolades including a 2010 AHR Expo Innovation Award in the indoor air-quality category, a 1st Air Day Minister of the Environmental Award, and the Jang Young Sil Award. Now, mothers need not worry about air-born viruses and allergens with Samsung’s Virus Doctor technology.

Stylish and Smart, the pure Crystal Gloss™ finish and uniquely curved design of the Samsung Air Conditioner deliver a premium look. Like aerodynamic, high performance sports cars, every aspect of its streamlined body is encased in dual-injected, transparent material for an elegant finish that blends seamlessly into any modern home.

Using an application on a smartphone, the Smart Wi-Fi function lets users remotely control the functions of the Samsung Air Conditioner to schedule its operation. In any location with a wireless network, users can instantly turn it on and off and select the operating mode as well as temperature. Additionally, the air conditioner is able to communicate operational time and electricity usage as well as providing filter cleaning reminders. The unit can also store preferred operational settings and cooling preferences.

The Smart Installation is a self-diagnosis feature that ensures the air conditioner is installed perfectly by the aircon installer. It automatically checks for installation faults that might cause problems when the air conditioner starts operating.

The Smart Check automatic error-monitoring system detects and diagnoses problems and provides easy troubleshooting solutions using a smartphone application. It saves users time and prevents unnecessary costs prior to a service call.

This, alongside its efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and innovative design, makes Samsung’s new Smart Air Conditioner the perfect household appliance for any savvy family wishing to ensure the health and wellness of their children.

Food ShowCase Refrigerator

Part of their new lineup also includes the new Food Showcase Refrigerator. This innovation provides smart organization for all your different types of food. There are two layers of doors in order to properly showcase the contents of the refrigerator, making it much easier to visualize your stocks. There are the outer compartments for your most frequently used products, allowing instant access. And then there are the inner compartments for ingredients that you don’t use as often. Not only does this maximize space, this setup makes organizing and consuming food a simple process. Everyone in the family, including the children can access refrigerator contents with ease.

The new Food ShowCase Refrigerator also features an ice and water dispenser. At the touch of a button, users can enjoy a refreshing glass of chilled filtered water or fill a pitcher with cubed or crushed ice.

This refrigerator is also equipped with Samsung’s trademark Digital Inverter Technology. This means that the refrigerator utilizes the same smart technology that allows it to adjust its temperature accordingly. Thus, no unnecessary energy is consumed, making this an efficient and cost-effective appliance.

Front Load Washing Machine with Eco-Bubble Technology

Another addition to their lineup of smart appliances is the Front Load Washing Machine. Doing the laundry is an arduous and time-consuming task. There are many things to consider when it comes to washing fabric, but Samsung’s newest Front Load Washing Machine makes cleaning clothes a breeze. It makes use of Samsung’s own Eco Bubble Technology that allows powerful cleaning in cold water. Using warm water is an extra step when it comes to doing the laundry, and it can also be damaging to some fabrics. But the Eco Bubble allows for easy cleaning by completely dissolving detergent even with cold water producing fine foam that easily penetrates the fabric for both effective and gentle, cutting the time, effort, and energy needed in doing this task.

power saving washing machine

In addition to being extremely powerful with its high Revolution Per Minute (RPM) rate, it is also furnished with the Stain Away Program. This pre-programmed cycle was designed to deal with the 12 most common types of stains: blood, cocoa, sebum, oatmeal, tea, wine, tomato, pencil lead, mud, makeup, lipstick, and grass. It does all this with less noise, less vibration, and more performance than an ordinary washing machine. And of course, it is outfitted with the Digital Inverter Technology, guaranteeing efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Samsung Smart Oven

Last on Samsung’s latest digital appliance lineup is the Samsung Smart Oven. The Samsung Smart Oven comes with more cooking settings in order to provide families with the best cooking experience possible. It includes features such as auto-cook for pre-programmed recipes yogurt making, dough proofing, and “Slim Fry” function. Slimfry function is what differentiates this from the typical Microwave Oven, since preparing meals no longer has to be an unhealthy experience.

The “Slim Fry” technology allows you to enjoy your favorite fried food cooked to a crisp without the oil. Cooking healthier meals for the family without cutting on taste and texture is now made possible. Meanwhile, the other smart features this smart oven has fulfilled a multitude of purposes. Its premium sensors allows it identify a food’s surface temperature, so whether it is frozen, chilled, or fresh, it can adjust its heat accordingly so you do not have to worry about overcooking or undercooking your meals. This makes it a great addition to any household.

Dahilayan Kids Adventure

Helllloooo! Oh geezz! it’s been ages since I last posted here (sadness!). I miss writing here that it feels like I am going back to my hometown as I write this loooongg overdue part 2 entry of our Dahilayan escapade!

As I mentioned in my previous post, we had a blast and it was an amazing moment to just bond with the family leaving all the worries and workloads behind. I am super excited to share photos of us having fun — THAT excited that I won’t be saying much for now, I’ll let the pictures do the entertaining part.

dahilayan adventure 1Our youngest loving the view so much that he gamely posed for a photo – turista pose!

dahilayan rope course  2They wanted to do the longest zipline but too bad they weren’t allowed yet so we settled for the Ropes course. I’m glad they had so much fun doing it. Kuya’s nerve got into him on the second obstacle but with the super stage parents’ insistence, he was able to overcome the fear and completed the course — behind his younger brother. :P :P …  YES! our youngest is the daredevil (in an adventurous-clean way)

Dahilayan rope courseI was seriously nervous for them when they took the second level course. I wanted them to end the course at level one, but of course, they are boys and they adventurous, who cares about mommy freaking out! LOL!

dahilayan adventure 6The buggy ride with Jhed and Daddy. Me and husband were supposed to do this together but due to the weight limit (**coughs**), one of us had to give in and take our youngest son instead. The buggy ride is only limited to a total weight of 120kls because of the slopes it will have to go through during the ride. Since rex was super excited to try the ride, I gave way so he can enjoy it with our son Jhed. I guess the picture can quite say how much they loved their little racer moment!

Thumbs up boys!!

Families, Outing and More Fun

One of the most amazing blessing I am so thankful to God is my friendship with people who honors and puts Him first before everything else. People who inspire me to continue my walk with God and friends who assures me I have a family in them.

In CCF (the church where our family go to worship), we have this Discipleship Group (D-group) where we meet regularly (well almost regularly) to study the word of God and encourage one another. And I am glad that I found a group where I could fit in. Though I have to admit that we are not as consistent in joining the meetings, I truly appreciate their love and understanding.

Last June, before the school year officially started, we had the opportunity to fellowship and have fun together with the rest of Pastor Allan’s D12 and their respective D-group in Dahilayan Gardens. It was our first time as a family and the kids were just as excited upon knowing that we are going with the rest of the group.

The pictures below should spell all the fun and excitement!


Doc. Allan Melicor’s DGroup – not all of it since there were other groups who were not able to join due to already scheduled commitments.

Here we are! The Young Couples Group after all the games and our ahhhmaazing group cheer! lol! (Oh geez! good thing no video was taken to prove how amazing the cheer was for Team Michael and Friends!) and before we settle to our rooms and spend the rest of the night in this cold and beautiful place. (L-R) Team Tuyan, Team Cortez, Team Galamiton and Team Aquino (we miss you Team Alado, Team Rodano and Team Matulac). By the ages of our kids, you’d know who went ahead first! :P

So anyway, the Family Day was dubbed as “Rumble and Tumble” and from that we can already tell that it’s going to be an energy buster! And behold! as expected everyone’s energy were all drained at the end of the program as each D-Group prepared a game — games that requires running, jumping, agility and all that can possibly suck ones exuberance.


This is the most relaxed game the group did :). Too bad I didn’t bring any camera so I was not able to capture the rest of the action!


The boys who were exhausted after all the games (Jeedo not in the picture).


My boys relaxing and enjoying Dahilayan Garden’s beautiful view.

We concluded the night with a bonfire. Everyone were just being kids!

Look! Lukee is so serious grilling the mallows? lol! Just cute!

The next day, we explored the place as the kids were excited to try the adventures Dahilayan is instore for them. Since our boys are way older than the rest of the group’s kids, we went ahead to the adventure park so they get to experience some adrenaline rush. I’ll share about their experience in a separate post real soon!

The gathering was truly a blessing. It allowed us to have a little break from the busy lives we have and spend quality time with each of our families. That also reminded us of God’s awesomeness! His creations are truly a gift and we will forever be grateful. I can’t wait for the next Family Day!

CDOBloggers Celebrate Social Media Day

I have been with the CDOBloggers for years now and I have seen how the Social Media evolved and how it changed the way of people’s lives in terms of both personal and business. For some, it became a blessing while to some Social Media became an instant destruction, an anti-productivity sort of thing.

I made this image for the Social Media Day

Well anyway, Social Media Day was coined by Mashable – a British-American social media blog. As read in Mashable’s page – “Social Media Day is an annual global event on June 30 that recognizes the digital revolution happening right before our eyes.” This year is the third year of the Social Media Day celebration. In Cagayan de Oro, the CDOBloggers joined the world in celebrating. Thanks to Irene of Mindanaoan (CDOBloggers VP for External Affairs) for working so hard to make the event possible.

Thank you Krispy Kreme for always partnering with the CDOBloggers

A Celebrity Kind of Day

Hello blog! I have missed you! I have been itching to write/update since forever but I just couldn’t find the time to squeeze in blogging. Sometimes I feel like I am procrastinating too much causing me to be very unproductive in most days – well except for completing my daily 8-hour work. I seriously need to get my act together and start to use my time wisely.

Well anyway, as I’ve said it’s been a while and a lot have been going on with me and everything/everyone around me (if only I can share all of them all at ones!). For one is the unexpected meeting and chatting with celebrities. I confess that I used to get so starstruck with celebrities but since I become a born again Christian, I became less obsessed in rubbing elbows with the famous ones. Of course that doesn’t mean I don’t get honored when given the opportunity to rub elbows with them.

So last week I had the unexpected opportunity to get to know 2 of this country’s known celebrities and Fashion icons up close. It all started with twitter – it’s really amazing how Social Media can make things very possible, like meeting people you never thought you’d meet in any possible way. A big thanks also to my friend Mindanaoan who is a big instrument in making the hobnobbing with Divine Lee and Tim Yap possible.

Divine Lee hosting the Style Origin / Style Icons with Tim Yap at Ayala Centrio CDO

Actually me and Mindanaoan were just chatting on facebook and giggling over silly things when she brought up the idea of meeting Divine Lee since she is coming to town for a show with Tim Yap and doll-like model Allison Harvard. Since she’s friends with Divine, she mentioned the possibility of meeting her personally during and after the show. Of course I was thrilled because I have been following Divine Lee and Tim Yap on twitter and I’m a big fan of Divine’s blog. And yes, I followed Allison Harvard on ANTM cycle 12. Then the tweeting started! Divine Lee is so active on twitter that you won’t ever regret following her and tweeting her because she definitely responds! Probably not the whole time but I really see the effort of re-tweeting and replying to all those tweets and Instagram posts.

So yes we watched the Style Icon featuring of course Fashion Icon, celebrity host and businessman Tim Yap, America’s Next Top Model Cycle 12 runner up Allison Harvard and Fashion Icon, host, commercial model and celebrity blogger Divine Lee. I was amazed at how Kagay-anons responded to these three fashion icons. I therefore safely conclude Kagay-anons are certified into fashion!

My highlight for that day was the chitchat with Divine Lee for HOURS! Take note, not just the usual hi, hello and goodbye thingy usually celebrities do. Divine Lee was so nice and down to earth that she actually spent hours chatting with us over great wine at the hotel restaurant where they stayed. She definitely is a talker! That I meant in a good way. It wasn’t just a superficial conversation but we actually talked about the city and the Sendong survivors’ recovery few years after the catastrophe. She is interested because she was active doing her own efforts to help when the calamity struck CDO and Iligan. She helped with our group’s relief efforts and actually personally went to Iligan with some celebrity friends for their personal relief operations as well.

She is the nicest and she is super sweet. She values her fans (fierces) and sees to it that she gets to know them.

We got even luckier when her bestfriend Tim Yap decided to join us. Like Divine, he is a talker (no wonder why they make such a great job being hosts). Despite the long travel (From Zurich to CDO – imagine that!), he showed no trace of jet lag or exhaustion. I wonder where he gets all his energy! For a moment there, I totally forgot they were celebrities. We were just in one long table, chatting and laughing our hearts out. We had to call it a night almost around 2AM because they still have an early flight to catch. I super appreciate them because while other celebrities may have opted to use their time to rest, they spent theirs with us. To both Tim Yap and Divine Lee, you are both amazing people and I felt so blessed to have met you personally. I hope to see you both again soon!

Friends, you may follow both Divine Lee and Tim Yap on Twitter to get more updates from them.

The wonderful chit chat with these two amazing celebrities. We are so lucky!

At 2AM! A pose before calling it a night. Thank you Tim Yap and Divine Lee

And oh! If you guys are wondering where Allison Harvard might have been? Well she wasn’t feeling well so she had to rest after the show. Too bad, we didn’t get the chance to meet her too, but hey! There’s always a next time!

Cheers to great time and amazingly nice celebrities!
