Home Credit Card now offers 1% rebate on every purchase

With the current pandemic affecting the country, it pays to have a financial partner that you can count on in times of need. Whether it’s for groceries, household appliances, and other necessities, shopping is made easier and more affordable with your new and improved Home Credit Card.

This new diskarte partner lets cardholders shop at their favorite online and physical stores and earn 1% rebate for every purchase. Higher rebates are also offered at select partner stores, and it’s even possible to convert bigger purchases to a 6-month installment plan with lower interest rate.

Another new benefit of the Home Credit Card is that new purchases won’t be charged of any interest for up to 45 days if bill is paid in full, while monthly membership fees can be waived as long as a minimum of two credit card transactions are made within the month.

In terms of convenience, the Home Credit Card does not disappoint. By linking it to the My Home Credit app, checking of credit card balance, transactions or monthly billing statement can be done anytime, anywhere—making it easier to keep track of expenses and budget.

Payments are also made convenient through the Home Credit website and online payment partners like GCash, BDO and RCBC online banking. For over-the-counter payments, customers can pay through Palawan Express, USSC, ECashpay and Touchpay.

QR payments with Home Credit Card App

The Home Credit Card also features a quick response or QR payment feature, which was recently launched following the Philippines’ growing demand for contactless and cardless payments—a first of its kind in the country.

Through this new feature, Home Credit Card cardholders no longer need to make physical contact and bring their cards or wallets when paying for their purchases. By updating the My Home Credit App to its latest version, cardholders will be able to scan QR codes to pay for their purchases in any AUB PayMate partner stores nationwide—providing a safer, more convenient, and secure payment option for those who prefer contactless transactions.

“We made sure to include features in the credit card that would encourage contactless payments, such as the QR feature,” said David Minol, CEO of Home Credit Philippines. “It’s safe to use due to its QR feature and even more convenient because of the mobile app.”

Over a year ago, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) gave Home Credit Philippines (HCPH) the green light to operate as a credit card issuer, making it the first non-bank institution in the country to issue credit cards. (Read: Home Credit gets BSP green light to issue credit cards).

Home Credit cardholders can enjoy its new features starting August 1, 2020. For more information about your new diskarte partner, visit the Home Credit website.

How BTS helped me lose 7 lbs. in two months

It’s been a little over three months since I started following Korean super group BTS; and while some may think I’m wasting my time fangirling over them, I say it’s just my way of coping with the pandemic.

So far, being an ARMY has proven to be beneficial for me. Aside from giving me good vibes through their music and social media content, as well as amaze and inspire me with their hard work and dedication for their craft, they have somehow pushed me to take care of my body again.

I’ve never been the type to be overly conscious of my body. For as long as I don’t get sick, I just go and eat what I want and do what I want. One month into the quarantine, I knew I was going overboard. I was already overweight pre-pandemic, but things just turned worse as my clothes got even tighter than they already were and I just felt heavy and weak overall.

I knew that’s not going to end well for me, health-wise, if I continued living a sedentary lifestyle.

It may not be much, but 7 lbs. off is a progress worth celebrating for me. Seven months ago, I couldn’t even dare tuck this Uniqlo x Hello Kitty shirt because then all my flabs would show! Now I feel more confident in my clothes, and with BTS-like consistency and dedication in my wourkout, I know I’ll be able to reach my goal weight in no time.

Then I learned about BTS’ Suga doing intermittent fasting, so I decided to give it a try. A friend of mine, who’s also a BTS fangirl, recommended I use the Zero App so I can track my fasting schedule.

The good thing about intermittent fasting is it doesn’t deprive you from eating the food you like. It only limits your eating time to an eight-hour timeframe allowing your body to burn up excess fat while you fast. Of course, as with any diet, you still need to make a conscious effort to choose healthier options over junk food, but at least you don’t feel guilty about having a few cheat snacks from time to time.

To complement my 16:8 IF (I fast for 16 hours and eat within the eight-hour time frame, which I set between 11:15 AM to 7:15 PM), I made a commitment to start working out daily. I started small by following a 15-minute yoga routine I found on Youtube just to keep my bones and muscles from stiffening up.

As days passed, I gradually increased my physical activity to include more yoga routines, some basic toning exercises, and simple dance cardio routines using BTS songs. Eventually, I was able to develop my own workout plan, which goes for almost two hours including warm up and cool down, which I now diligently do every day.

In case you’re interested to see what my yoga workout routine looks like, you can follow my workout playlist on Youtube:

To see all the videos in this playlist, tap the menu button on the upper right corner of the player screen.

I initially warm up to the song “Seoul,” which I included on my Spotify playlist (see below). I just do some typical warm up exercises like neck rolls, shoulder rolls, arm stretch, side body stretch, fold forward stretch, ankle rolls, and quadricep stretch, then the rest of the song I spend doing child’s pose — exercises to stretch the spine and loosen up the joints.

The first three yoga tutorial videos on my Youtube playlist are what I used to create my own beginner’s yoga flow routine. I used to follow all three videos to a tee when I was starting out, but I found it more enjoyable to do them with BTS songs playing in the background.

I simply picked out some of the moves and poses that I liked to create a seven-part routine. I used the songs “Dimple,” “Pied Piper,” “Paradise,” “Trivia: Seesaw,” Euphoria,” “Respect,” and “134340” as breathing and counting guide for these exercises.

I finish off each song with different varieties of planking for extra core workout and full body strengthening. To transition from yoga flow to toning workouts, I do sun salutations using the song “Filter” as my backdrop.

For toning, I’ve combined a variety of exercises such as donkey kicks, fire hydrants, leg raises, bicycle crunches, abdominal crunches, flutter kicks, frog press, side lying leg lifts, cobra stretches, in-and-outs, Russian twists, plie squats, and wall push ups.

To this set of exercises, I use the songs “Airplane Pt. 2,” “Dionysus,” “ON,” UGH!”, “Daechwita, “No More Dream,” and “We Are Bulletproof Pt. 2” to get me pumped. Here’s the Spotify playlist I use for this workout:

After this, I move on to my dance set, where I simply follow the steps in the videos in my Youtube workout playlist. Since I can’t dance like BTS (duh), I picked out simple Zumba and dance cardio workouts that use their songs instead. I’m currently following Live Love Party’s version of “Anpanman,” Sunny Funny Fitness’ “Fire” and Dope,” Mylee Dance’s “Chicken Noodle Soup,” and Kkardio Dance’s “Go Go” and “Idol.”

The only actual BTS choreography that I can dance so far is “Baepsae,” which I think is the easiest one out of all their routines. I was able to memorize this in just four days and I’m currently trying to learn the choreography to “MIC Drop” (crossing my fingers!). I end this segment of my workout routine by dancing freestyle to “Ego.”

BTS’ “Baepsae” is the easiest choreo to learn… and it’s quite fun, too!

Finally, I finish off with a 15-minute cool down routine, which is a modified version of the last video in my Youtube playlist. To this part, I use some of BTS’s slow ballads “Serendipity,” “Singularity,” “Stigma,” and “My Time.”

So far, I have lost seven pounds doing intermittent fasting and the two-hour yoga and dance workout daily for the past two months. From 149 lbs., I am now down to 142 lbs., which is still a far cry from the ideal body weight for my height and age, which is only 125-135 lbs., but at least I know that I’m making progress.

And this is all thanks to BTS!

BOA Asian Flavors launches online store, delivers “best Pad Thai in QC” to your home

One of the things we truly miss while on quarantine is dining out. Before the pandemic, we can just about go anywhere, explore the city, and find the best and most delicious dish there is.

Here in QC, a quiet little restaurant in the corner of Scout Rallos and Scout Tuason was named as one of the 50 Best Restaurants by city guide website Spot.ph and one of the Top 10 Restaurants in QC by the Zomato App.

The name is BOA Asian Flavors, a Southeast Asian cuisine restaurant that makes satisfying twists to classic dishes like Malaysian favorite nasi lemak and our very own sisig and kare-kare. It is best known, however, for its delectable pad thai, which many foodies say is the best in Quezon City.

To that claim, I have to agree. BOA’s pad thai is really up my alley as it hits a perfect balance of sweet, sour, and salty in its own flavorful sauce developed by executive chef Julius Necor. Made with fresh noodles and a generous serving of shrimp and other ingredients, it’s a perfect dish to satisfy your Thai food craving.

It’s good to know that BOA Asian Flavors has opened up its online store to serve patrons despite the quarantine. Simply log on to boakitchen.com from your computer or mobile device and order off their menu that includes all the best Asian comfort food.

BOA Asian Flavors’ famous pad thai. Available at boakitchen.com for P395.

Aside from the pad thai, which comes other bestsellers available in the online store are the beef rendang, nasi goreng, char kway teow, and beef khao soi.

They also have a unique take on our famous beermate sisig, which has been converted into a deep-fried ball or croquette.

Sisig croquette. Available at boakitchen.com for P245.

For dessert, they also serve a heavenly plate of mango sticky rice and deconstructed banana pie.

It was also a refreshing moment for me when I learned that they serve my all-time favorite Filipino dish kare-kare on a deconstructed plate with and added twist of curry flavor, giving it a distinct taste.

Kare-curry. Available at boakitchen.com for P425.

“We want to serve comfort Asian food from the region but we’ve added our own spin to it to relate more to the cosmopolitan/well-travelled Filipino. This way, we can provide taste and quality that’s closer to the real thing. If we want to be known for one thing, it would be for serving food with bursting Asian flavors at boakitchen.com” says Joey Marcelo III, owner of BOA Asian Flavors.

Joey is proud to have Chef Julius on board as he has mastered the complexity and depth of flavors of Asian dishes. He trained under the famous Chef Chele of Vask (a restaurant that has consistently ranked in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants) and has proved his skill to be strong enough to lead his own kitchen.

Mango sticky rice. Available at boakitchen.com for P235.

Order BOA online

Through its digital platform, BOA Asian Flavors promises to offer a smooth user experience with insight-backed photos and food captions that should relate well with customers.

The site offers expanded payment options for an easy transaction. Customers may pay through online banking, credit card, and e-money (Paymaya and Gcash). It will also feature a chat service so customers can have conversations with the restaurant management, place orders and receive confirmation of payment right away.

Nasi goreng. Available at boakitchen.com for P310.

You can also order dishes from BOA’s sister restaurants Gang Gang, Holy Grill, and Lucky Lucy. Gang Gang serves boneless fried chicken in a variety of flavors such as gangnyeom (Korean-style sweet and mild spicy sauce), sriracha-mansi, garlic parmesan, soy-mansi, and salted egg.

Meanwhile, Holy Grill, which is a popular steak restaurant in Taft Avenue, has its ribeye steak and USDA roast beef rice meals available for delivery through the website. Finally, Chinese-American Lucky Lucy serves orange chicken, fish and tofu, and mongolian stir-fry rice bowls.

Joey Marcelo II and Chef Julius Necor

“We understand that our customers may be more meticulous when it comes to food and they want to be certain if they are ordering the right thing for them. We made sure our layout, food shots, and description are produced from real consumer insight so our customers can have a very clear understanding on the food they are ordering,” says Joey.

During this time, safety is a top priority for BOA Asian Flavors. “We have devised a Safety and Hygiene Bible that subscribes to the standard protocols from DTI and our LGU. All our staff have also enrolled and finished Food Handling and Safety courses, earning certificates of completion from Servsafe—a food and beverage safety and training certificate program handled by the US National Restaurant Administration,” Joey adds.

BOA Asian Flavors is located at Mezzanine Floor, 45 ABDC Building, Sct. Rallos cor. Sct. Tuazon, Laging Handa, Quezon City and can be messaged at www.boakitchen.com
