In 2010, Krem-Top was launched as a superior coffee creamer.  In the moments when people were open to changing many things in their lives, Krem-Top inspired people to chart their destinies through small and simple resolutions.

As Krem-Top started it’s Happy New Change campaign towards the New Year, Krem-Top encouraged Filipino’s positivism towards a bright future to be expressed in their resolutions.  This was done through an ad that showed a series of changes that they promised to make.  It challenged the viewers with the question – what will you change for the better?

In the succeeding years, Krem-Top continued the call for change through campaigns that emboldened people to be inspired and bring to life their resolutions. In throngs, people were motivated to make them no matter how small or mundane – all because everyone wanted to change for the better.

For 2013, Krem-Top pushes the envelope, telling Filipinos that small changes when done together can effect a change not just for the individual but for an entire country.  All it takes is the will and participation of the greater majority.

With the help of Krem-Top’s brand ambassadors Papa Jack and Richard Yap, a declaration of a better Pilipinas will not remain as a vision but a reality. Papa Jack does his best to really help his listeners through his love advices and life lessons in his radio program “True Love Confessions”. Richard Yap on the other hand serves as an inspiration as he continuously challenges himself to be better: from being a businessman to a commercial model, a singer and now one of the most sought after celebrity and endorser.

Aren't they're so charming to be the Ambassadors for Change for the Better Pilipinas? Indeed, they are.

Encapsulated in this year’s campaign line “CHANGE FOR A BETTER PILIPINAS”, Krem-Top’s advocacy has been all about making small changes to make a big impact. This year, those small changes are about to get bigger, as they rally the entire country to make a change. Simulan na ang pagbabago! Change for the Better Pilipinas!

alaska-aces-383x200

The Alaska Aces, one of the most successful franchise in the Philippine Basketball Association, formally launched the Alaska Aces App. This is another innovation which brings the team closer to the public and to it’s fans (Gatas Republik)

Look! The Alaska Aces have their own app downloaded.

 

Launching the Alaska Aces app is about giving our fans continuous access to the team. In the connected and digital world we live in, we realize how people tend to engage and this app provides such an opportunity. said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, Aces Team Owner. We have always sought to be a pioneer in the PBA, so whether it be the first team to provide rings to a Championship team, to retiring a player’s number or develop a dedicated website, Alaska has been at the forefront of new developments. My favorite saying is GOOD ENOUGH, NEVER IS. And that applies to all aspects of the franchise. I’m confident this new feature will be enjoyed by all our fans and perhaps attract new ones. Uytengsu added.

The Alaska Aces became the first team in the PBA to have their own Smartphone Application which allows the public to have access to the current events, news, updated team profile pictures and videos of the Alaska Aces.

The Alaska Aces App is free and may be downloaded through any Android or iPhone.

Alaska Aces team manager Richard Bachmann said the Alaska Aces App allows fans to be updated with their favorite Alaska Aces players and to see their activities on and off the court.

The Alaska Aces has become one of the most successful PBA teams while adhering to the guiding principle set forth by team owner Fred Uytengsu of winning with integrity and always practicing fair play.

Like other PBA teams, the Alaska Aces has their own Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. In addition, Alaska Aces is the only PBA team with its own website ( www.alaskaaces.com.ph ), and now Smartphone App.
