Thank you, Miss Susan Roces, for a decade of partnership

It has been more than 10 years since we saw Miss Susan Roces on TV sharing a story about an old lady buying expensive medicines. This worried her, made her weep, for she knew even then that there are quality, yet affordable medicines that people can buy. This marked the start of her partnership with RiteMED, a partnership that pushed for the right of Filipinos to having access to affordable quality medicines. A partnership that seemed destined to happen.

At a speaking engagement held some years back, Miss Susan shared an untold story about her father. When she was young, her father, who was a doctor, would visit patients in their community, giving free medical consultations. She remembers that her father advocates providing free healthcare to the sick, especially the less fortunate. And when RiteMED approached her to become their Brand Ambassador, she was reminded of her father, thus it became easy for her to say yes to the role. She thought this might be a way for her to continue the advocacy and legacy of her father.

Thank you, Miss Susan Roces, for a decade of partnership

And so, for the past 10 years, Miss Susan became the face of RiteMED. We saw her sad, weeping for people who can’t afford to buy expensive medicines. Then, we saw her wagging her finger, admonishing consumers who buy expensive branded products when there are alternatives. With this, she kept on reminding consumers to always ask – be it their doctor or the pharmacist – if there are medicines that are of equal quality, yet more affordable for their budget. She even sang, and danced, so that people will always remember. With her help, the mindset of the Filipino consumer has changed. From “Bawal magkasakit” since getting sick is costly, they would always remember that “Bawal ang mahal”, and that means they have the right to quality and more affordable medicines, including essential maintenance medicines.

Thank you, Miss Susan Roces, for a decade of partnership

To many, she is the Queen of Philippine Movies; Lola Kap to viewers and fans of teleseryes; and Tita Swannie to friends and people she work with in the industry. But to the sick, she serves as inspiration, a partner, the face and voice of what they’re fighting for – the right and easy access of every Filipino to healthcare products and services, regardless of their social status. Because of this, she will forever remain in the hearts of every Filipino who believes that healthcare is a right of all, and not only of a selected few nor the rich. She will always be remembered by Filipinos whom she empowered – Filipino consumers “na hindi nahihiyang magtanong”.

Farewell, Miss Susan… Thank you for all your contributions, especially the care and wisdom that you shared to every Filipino.

Summer never ends

Summer never ends in the Philippines, that’s why it will always be fun to lounge by a resort pool or frolic on the beach, or travel to cooler places such as Tagaytay, Baguio, or abroad. But if for some reason you are stuck at home, there are still fun ways to cool off in the comforts of your home.

To make summer more enjoyable, Robinsons Appliances bring you a wide range of appliances that will not only make you cool and comfortable; they will also help get things done.

What’s more, Robinsons Appliances is having a Chillin’ Summer Deals promo where you can snap up these cool appliances at a discounted price for as much as 40% off! Some of the appliances included in the promo are Samsung inverter front load washer and dryer, Hanabishi inverter showcase chiller and Sharp inverter side by side door refrigerator.  The promo runs until May 31, 2022. 

Robinsons Appliances Chillin’ Summer Deals

To help you keep refreshed, read some of the practical tips below.

1. Wear organic cotton clothes.

Natural cotton traps air between its fibers to keep you cool and protected from the heat. It also absorbs sweat which prevents clothes from getting smelly, resulting in body odor.

It helps to frequently change into freshly-laundered clothes. You will not only smell good but feel comfortable as well. And don’t worry if you have to change clothes often! With Samsung’s combo washer dryers’ AI Control & AI Wash (Model: SAMSUNG WD19T6500GV/TC WM FLC), you can personalise every washing cycle, making laundry a very convenient affair. The machine analyses the laundry habits based on actual usage so that it can recommend the best washing cycles. The AI Control familiarizes itself with user preferences and uses that knowledge to suggest wash cycles thereby eliminating the need to locate the right wash settings. The AI Wash feature uses sensors to detect the laundry load’s weight and soilage, to determine the optimal amount of water and detergent to dispense.

Now, you have more time to do more enjoyable summer activities such as baking, painting, exercising or simply lounging in an inflatable pool.

An intuitive washer and dryer that lets you customize and analyze your preferred wash cycle? Yes please. And you can get this at an amazingly discounted price of ₱66,535 until May 31.

2. Stock on fruit juices, sodas and other cooling drinks.

During the previous summer, temperatures reached a whopping 51 degrees heat index and this hot season may be no different. Extremely high temperatures may cause dehydration due to excessive sweating. Replace lost fluids with cool summer drinks, which you can easily view via the see-through door of the HANABISHI Eco-Inverter Beverage Showcase Chiller (HINVCHILL-130).

This product can not only chill drinks but could also help you save electricity. A chiller that utilizes compressor inverter technology that can reduce power consumption of up to 60% and lower the operating costs. If you purchase your chiller during the Chillin’ Summer promo period, you will get a free Hanabishi blender. Now you can create all your favorite flavors of margarita or daiquiri, which are perfect for those blistering summer nights.

Trying to stay healthy but want to enjoy fun drinks at the same time? Pile up on refreshments that contain less sugar such as fruit infused water (cucumber or lemon water), coconut water, aloe vera juice, and milk, which contains a natural blend of good quality carbs, proteins and sodium that helps your body retain fluids.

HANABISHI Robinsons Appliances

Get free Hanabishi blender for every purchase of HANABISHI Eco-Inverter Beverage Showcase Chiller (HINVCHILL-130) until May 31.

3. Consume cold food.

Hot soups, congee and ramen are ideal for rainy days. But during summer, it is advisable to eat cold food like salad, sandwiches, ice cream and gazpacho. It might help lower the body temperature plus trick your body into thinking that its environment is getting cool by eating something cold. Some recipes to try include fruit-based salad, crab salad, sushi, mango bruschetta, cucumber sandwiches and homemade frozen yogurt.

To keep your food cold and to prevent easy spoilage due to warm room temperature, store them in your new Sharp two door No Frost Inverter refrigerator (Model: SHARP SJ-BLS20AVP-SL REF). It has a two way fresh room that provides a huge space for convenient food storage.
