New Handwashing Music Video of Alden Richards Sets the Tune for a worry-free Christmas

New Handwashing Music Video of Alden Richards Sets the Tune for a worry-free Christmas


‘Tis the season to be jolly and worry-free; as Safeguard, the nation’s leading soap that stands for germ-protection; sets the tune for a healthy Christmas celebration with the newest hand-washing music video, “Five Hugas ng Krismas.”

Featuring the charming voice of local celebrity and “Pambansang Bae” Alden Richards, the music video stresses the importance of having clean hands this Yuletide season through a colorful and energetic finger-tutting choreography set to a classic Christmas melody. This is Safeguard’s creative response to an alarming discovery from the first Philippine Handwashing Index (PHI), with results showing that most Filipinos do not wash their hands regularly and diligently. PHI is a breakthrough study commissioned by Safeguard to have a closer look at the hand-washing habits of Filipinos.

The message of the music video is simple yet impactful: “Ang bawat hugas, dapat Safeguard hugas”. This means only trusting the best when it comes to germ-protection, by simply following these five non-negotiables on when to wash your hands: before mag-mano, after banyo, before kumain, after playing, and before mag-bonding.

“A joyful Christmas is a Christmas that is spent with family and friends – happy and worry-free. A lot of us take hand-washing for granted, and since is it a good way to prevent illnesses, it’s important to remind the people to continuously wash their hands the Safeguard way,” says Alden Richards.

Director Sid Maderazo and Assistant Director Manman Angsico, a veteran theater actor and vocal coach, are the masterminds behind the creative execution of the “Five Hugas ng Krismas” music video. In it, the finger-tutting choreography features five hands that represent the five points of the star – reminiscent of the Filipino Christmas parol. For the background, sliding panels and creative props help depict the different times one should remember to wash their hands, specifically during those festive moments that define a Filipino Christmas. From bonding with the family over karaoke, to digging in on the delicious spread of local rice cakes, the music video is a fun and creative way to create awareness about the value of hand-washing.

“Sometimes the simplest of ideas can be the most challenging. The intention was to shoot the scenes seamlessly with live moving backgrounds. The easy route was to use green screen, but where’s the fun in that? It was all about great team work from everyone involved, and in the goal of sharing about an advocacy worth sharing to kids and the young-at-heart alike,” shares Director Sid Maderazo.


Clean hands for every Filipino

Through the Five Hugas ng Krismas music video, Safeguard aims to address the serious problem with the poor hand-washing habits of Filipinos, which was uncovered by the first Philippine Handwashing Index. The study found that seven out of ten Filipinos claim to wash their hands with soap after using a public toilet, but only two really do. To add, only water is being used when hand-washing by 60% of women before cooking, and 40% of women before feeding their kids

Children are the most prone to sickness, yet 66% of Filipinos have noticed or witnessed children not washing hands after using the toilet; and 40% of Filipinos do not wash their hands before touching young children.

“The results of the Philippine Handwashing Index prompted Safeguard to come up with a creative solution to keep hand-washing a top-of-mind habit in every home. Through “Five Hugas ng Krismas”, we want to work together to instill proper hand-washing habits in time of the holiday season, where Filipinos touch and and are in frequent contact with relatives and friends,” explains Jia Salindong-Du, Safeguard Philippines Brand Manager.

For over five decades, Safeguard has been a dedicated hand-washing advocate, promoting proper hand-washing habits with a wide range of antibacterial soaps that provide family protection against germs for up to 24 hours.

Watch and share the Five Hugas ng Krismas music video to spread awareness about the proper handwashing habits this season of joy. Click this link for the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaExAK84IYk

CBK HARDWARE INC.

CBK HARDWARE INC.


Co Ban Kiat Hardware Incorporated is one of the few pioneering hardware businesses in the Philippines which has withstood the test of time. It all started in the 1920 when the family patriarch Mr. Cobankiat opened a store in the heart of the Manila Chinatown under the name of Co Ban Kiat Hardware. Business resumed after World War II but it was not until after three years later, in 1948, that the company
recovered. The new CBK building was constructed on the very same spot where it stood before the war.

Co Ban Kiat Hradware Inc. (CBKHI), also known as the “House of Improvements”, has been the forefront of homebuilding supplies. From selling nails and iron wires as their main products, CBKHI has evolved and is now considered as one of the country’s leading suppliers of the top-of-the-line hardware materials.

Driven by excellence, CBKHI initiated the retail concept for hardware stores in the country by putting up the Hardware Workshop Store.

To cater to the growing demand of industrial and onstruction industries, CBKHI transformed itself by providing corporations with tangible solutions to address their primary concerns on safety and quality.

This also paved way to the birth of Coby’s Design Center in Edsa Shangri La in 1996. This specialty store offers a wide array of products that showcase versatility and Innovativeness to suit the discriminating tastes of the modern Filipino.


In 1997, Mr. Johnny Cobankiat took the advantage in bringing a franchise of Ace Hardware USA in the country with Cobankiat Hardware as one of its suppliers. In time, CBKHI expanded its distribution channel and is now considered as one of the leading suppliers in all major retail or home improvement stores in the country.

With its nearly a century’s excellence and guided by its vision to be the largest network supplier of the biggest brands in the world in the hardware industry, CBKHI resolve to work at sourcing the best products to supply its customers anytime and every time.

Natalie Portman & Her Baby Bump Dazzle in White At The SAG Awards!

Natalie Portman & Her Baby Bump Dazzle in White At The SAG Awards!


My favorite actress Natalie Portman is so divine in white!  After she stunned us in her yellow gown at the Golden Globes red carpet, Natalie Portman nails this award season yet again. She really knows how to dress that bump, doesn’t she?

At last Sunday’s SAG Awards, the 35-year-old Oscar winner impressed us again with her beautiful curves as she dressed her baby bump in an elegant Dior Haute Couture gown with balloon sleeves and a train. Who can pull this off better than Natalie Portman? Statement sleeves are a trend this season so this one’s a great option. On top of that, her sparkling diamonds and a perfect chignon put the final touches on an already brilliant outfit. It’s wonderful!

Natalie, who the SAG Awards back in 2011 for the blockbuster Black Swan, brought her husband, Benjamin Millepied to the event. I bet he agrees when we say she really rocked that dress! She met Benjamin, a ballet choreographer, while making Black Swan. Now, Natalie is again nominated for her turn as Jackie Kennedy Onassis in Jackie (may the odds be ever in her favor!).

Congratulations to Natalie and Benjamin! Aleph, their 5-year-old son, would be so excited to meet the new addition to the family. Let’s wish her a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery.

She has always been my favorite and will always be now and forever!
