Filipina Singer Alisah Bonaobra awes the X Factor UK Judges with her performance of "Listen"



Alisah Bonaobra, singer from Manila, Philippines wowed all four judges of The X Factor UK with her version of Beyonce’s hit Listen on the seventh episode of the show. Her performance left judge Nicole Scherzinger in tears.

One of eight children, Alisah believed her talent is world class and took a chance of a lifetime in the competition. She flew to London with the help of her mother’s friend who helped them fund their plane tickets.

Accompanied by about 20 friends and family members, the judges could all hear the loud cheer of the group before she even walked into the room.

“I always think a lot of people from where you’re from [are] amazing singers” expressed by judge Simon before she starts singing.

Alisah confidently sang her heart out clearly impressing the judges with her talent. Not long in the performance, judge Nicole was already brought to tears. The half-Filipina judge could not help but show how amazed she was and even got on her feet to applaud her afterwards.

“This is not the best version of this song I’ve ever heard I’m not gonna lie to you,” said judge Simon Cowell. But there’s something about you I really, really like. Great, great, great energy! That was good; I really enjoyed that!” he added.

Judge Louis Walsh agreed and said, “I think she’s adorable! You’re a great singer, you’re a great person! It was a great audition, but there’s something about you that we really like.”

Judge Sharon Osbourne was almost speechless, her words were brief but sweet enough for Alisah “I just want to cry. Oh, it’s a yes from me!”

Judge Nicole Scherzinger, who was still in tears told the young singer, “I am crying because I come from very humble beginnings as well. You’re just gorgeous, you’re just this tiny little thing with a voice given from God, this unbelievable gift blowing everybody away. I connect with you and everybody and it’s a yes for you and all the Filipinos out there.”

Soon as she got her fourth yes from Judge Simon, her family and friends hurried in the audition room and exchanged hugs with her and all the judges.

Alisah will be joining the bootcamp with fellow Filipinos Gaga Lord, JBK, and Elysa V, who all got four yeses during the first round of auditions.

Epson and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Create Glow-in-the-Dark Pit Stop


Epson is looking forward to the iconic nightime Singapore Grand Prix by taking a fresh and exciting look at a Formula 1™ car and pit stop. The ambitious plan to create what is believed to be the world’s first glow-in-the-dark pit stop combined Epson’s market leading products with the proven excellence of the reigning Formula One™ World Constructors’ Champions, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, featuring three-time World Champion driver, Lewis Hamilton. 

Epson began by transforming the Mercedes-AMG Petronas race car from its normal state into a glow-in-the-dark masterpiece. An Epson SureColor SC-S Series printer enabled the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport design team to transform the 2016 World Championship winning livery by printing luminous material that was wrapped around the car and glow-in-the-dark versions of the car’s iconic branding. The lights were then turned off and the crew completed the world’s first ever glow-in-the-dark pit stop. Complete with glowing overalls and equipment, the team conducted several rapid tyre changes. 


The effect was enhanced by the Epson’s flagship EB-L25000U, the world’s first and brightest 3LCD laser projector with 25,000 lumens plus 4K Enhancement, which is designed for dynamic and high-impact production*1. 

The concept was designed to encourage Formula 1 fans to look at pit stops in an entirely new light, while demonstrating the global technology leadership of both Epson and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport in a compelling manner. 

The 2017 race calendar next sees the championship travel to Singapore, where Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport will be looking to consolidate their championship lead at this iconic ‘F1 night race’. With over 1600 lights illuminating the famous city circuit four times brighter than most football stadiums it is a spectacle welcomed by fans globally. To celebrate this night race, the glow-in-the-dark content will be released on Epson and Mercedes-AMG Petronas channels over the Singapore GP race weekend (15-17 September 2017). 

The glow-in-the-dark pit stop is part of a series of innovative activations between Epson and Mercedes-AMG Petronas, which includes last year’s #LewisGetsInked campaign and the 2017 Lewis Hamilton F1 Ink Tank Challenge (https://www.epson.co.uk/lewisgetsinked). 

A video of the glow-in-the-dark and other content will be released on Epson channels shortly.
Ian Cameron, general manager of brand and communications at Epson said: “Our partnership with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport has always focused on working together in the joint pursuit of innovation and performance in our respective industries. The glow-in-the-dark pit stop is both pioneering and exciting. It perfectly demonstrates how adaptable and practical our products are in the most unusual and striking of environments. We are delighted with the results.”
Victoria Vowles, Marketing Operations Director, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, said, “It is always a pleasure to work with Epson to create these innovative and forward-thinking concepts. Epson’s use of advanced technology to deliver performance is perfectly aligned to what we strive to achieve in Formula 1. Pit stops are a well established feature of the Formula 1 experience, so being able to work with Epson and their pioneering products to bring a fresh perspective to this process has been highly exciting.”

The Selfie and Wefie that makes everyone smile - ASUS Ph with Operation Smile Foundation for #4theSmile campaign



ASUS Philippines, in partnership with the Operation Smile Foundation, aims to changes lives through its #4theSmile campaign

There’s no argument that the Philippines is widely-considered as one of the happiest places in the world. And we’re not only talking about the breath-taking tourist spots or the multicultural experiences that this wonderful country has to offer. It’s also because of the signature Filipino hospitality — that renowned enthusiasm and excitement whenever we meet new people, coupled with warm welcomes and wide smiles that we wear on our faces, regardless of what’s happening in our lives. 

This is why when the act of taking selfies took the entire world by storm, it especially became such a hit among Filipinos from all walks of life. Whoever we are and where ever we may be, a memorable experience would never be complete without it immortalized with a selfie or, now, a wefie – that captures everyone’s shared experience in one frame. It’s how we identify ourselves and is the best way to capture our world-renowned smiles. 


Transforming lives, one smile at a time

But admittedly, some people need a little help in sharing those beautiful smiles with the world. The non-profit medical service organization of Operation Smile Philippines (OSP) says it is estimated that in every 3 minutes, a child is born with a cleft – a split or opening in the roof of the mouth which affects their speech, hearing, and other day-to-day functions. 

Since 1982, Operation Smile Philippines started working their magic in the Philippines through various medical missions and programs for children with this condition, beginning with gathering donations and volunteers and in the process, creating significant changes in these kids’ lives. Its medical volunteers have shared how participating in this cause has made quite an impact in their own lives as well. The foundation has officially been around for 35 years as a non-stock, non-profit later, since its registry in 1988.



The Face of a Thousand Smiles

Last August, ASUS Philippines recently announced its partnership with Operation Smile Philippines at the much-anticipated launch of the ZenFone 4 Series in the local market. In line with its hero tagline, "We Love Selfie & Wefie," , ASUS Philippines’ 10th year anniversary, and together with 35 years of the Operation Smile Philippines, the global tech giant introduced #4theSmile campaign. The said campaign wishes to bring smiles to the 4,500 Filipino children who are born with cleft lips and palates each year, by inviting everyone to contribute and help create smiles.

By joining #4theSmile, each participant will help push further the advocacy that Operation Smile Philippines has been supporting across different countries in the world. With each selfie and wefie taken by any of the ZenFone 4 series that is posted on Twitter and Instagram, using the hashtag #4theSmile, ASUS Philippines will donate and P1.00 to support a medical mission. ASUS Philippines aims to get roughly around the magnanimous number of 1,300,000 selfies and wefies combined before the year ends. 

“There is a relationship that exists even between strangers. ASUS Philippines is here to prove just that by turning selfies and wefies into shared moments that go beyond the people within the frame and actually touch other people’s lives for the better,” shares ASUS Philippines Country Manager, George Su, as he echoes their newest campaign philosophy – From ME to WE. “Through this new partnership, we want our selfie-loving audience to take their selfies and wefies to another level by sharing their smiles to brighten the lives of thousands of children with cleft lips and palates, and help bring these children’s smiles to the world.”
