Did You Know You Are Losing Four Days Every Month, Here’s Why

Filipino motorists, apparently, spend over a thousand minutes each week on making decisions alone. At least that’s what a recent study reveals. 

We might not notice it but if we look at the bigger picture, we dedicate a large part of our lives unknowingly just to scratch our head stressing over life’s small unnecessary details.

A nationwide study by Shell publicized that Filipinos make over 30 conscious decisions each day that could have been dedicated to more important things like spending time with family, reaching organizational goals in your career, finding ways to expand your business, and laughing out loud with friends. As a firm that aims to make their customers’ lives easier, they are currently looking into ways in providing more value through introducing products that we can rely on.

With a lot of pressures about modern city living, our evolving needs have been the top priority of today’s top service and product providers.

We should be conscious even in our small actions from now on and literally make every second count. For time can never be taken back once wasted. 

The Shell FuelSave Good Choice Report poked into the lives of commercial drivers, private individuals, moms and college students who drive at least once week, from different key cities such as Metro Manila, Dagupan City, Batangas City, Metro Cebu and Davao City. It is indeed revitalizing to note that our fretfulness even in deciding where to eat, what to do, where to go, to milestone decisions such as career and financial planning takes up a huge chunk of our lives.

“We recognize that our customers are very busy people and are pre-occupied with so many things,” says Mr Anthony Yam, VP Pilipinas Shell. 

While most Filipino motorists make decisions based on own personal prejudices and considers themselves as strongest influencers in their decision-making, there are a lot of things being put into regard. Funds, family and life partners are naturally being consulted as well.

The study also emphasizes that these decisions are done in the morning, while out of home and most of the time, on the road. These are things we all know already, can all relate to and it is saddening that it had to take a corporate study to make us aware of our habits.

And just a great way to highlight how making good choices impact our lives positively, Shell organized a Driving Challenge event. Putting together celebrity Bianca Gonzales and 13 everyday drivers test road savvy and fuel efficiency skills as they drive from Bonifacio Global City to Batangas and back. To those who are not aware of how long a drive that is, it is about 240 kilomoters. That’s around five audiobooks, 10 US Top 40 albums, singing your next favourite song on Spotify, ranting about that annoying girl at work or taking a pic of the cars in front you for Waze points and the list goes on.






Shell Fuel Scientist Mae Ascan, the only Filipino Fuel Scientist in the world, gave a special mentoring session to the participants on smarter driving behaviors. Ultimately, through this Challenge, choosing the right fuel does not have to be a tough decision, states Mr Yam. And yes, there’s a hundred years of street cred of the conglomerate to prove that.

What is your goal for today? How will you make life’s precious minutes count? What difference will you make after reading this?


#JayseeBlabs Closer Look on Consumer Studies

Knowing all about your consumer will make you a greater company since you would be able to adapt to lifestyle changes that might be influencing them as they make choices. Consumer Studies are a great way to and Shell did a great job at collating data and developing marketing strategies that revolves around the results.

Business communication can aid in resolving market problems as people make smarter decisions and the way they did information acquisition and manipulating it in such a way that it would promote the brand was a great way of making a process personal for a company of a global heritage.

There are a lot of consumer behaviors that you should put a focus to such as social, economic, psychological, even technological. Sampling methods based on what your research goals may be employed accordingly. You can reach your consumers by personally communicating with them through your social media channels or 'incentivizing' their answers through e-survey prizes.

The Widest Selection Awesome Food Haven at BGC

While in Bonifacio Global City (BGC), you may want to check out Mercato Centrale just right across MC Home Depot. It's plasters an al fresco dining experience that gives the best of both worlds.

Mercato gives a rundown-ish feel with the open tent venue but the wide food selection is just top notch, fitting those who have the penchant for the fine things in life.

If you want a place that is so laid-back that you and your work buddies are going to have a great time but still want to succumb on some tangy gellato, creamy soft velvet cupcakes, delectable seafood, Japanese bentos or mouthwatering lobsters, then this is the place to be.

It opens from 10 PM to 3 AM every Friday and Saturday and just right at 34th street and 8th avenue. You won't miss it as it is the only area bustling with lights and sounds amidst closed shops nearby.








Don't just sit there! Rally up your buddies this breaktime to Mercato for some pig out sessions!

Selfies at Awesome Overlooked BGC Art Masterpieces

Taguig is nothing like what you see in indie films, documentaries and news reports you see on TV featuring Metro Manila. It brandishes the best places to live, work and play in the country today. 

Living costs are worth it since you really can’t put a price on security, convenience and artful stylish living that can make use of your creative frugal skills. In fact, business districts here are comparable to Venice and New York. Worth moving out into, I must say. Like any beautiful places, it is dotted with great art installations that sadly doesn't get the attention they deserve.

"Kasaysayan Bawat Oras Art Piece." There are beautiful art installations from where I work, the Bonifacio Global City (BGC). It is made of reinforced brass sheet and cement and after searching online found out that it is actually a "sundial-slash-educational playground." This sundial, which is actually a functional time guide, serves as a "metaphor for Philippine history" and the art style, materials and color scheme perfectly blends in the modern architecture that envelopes it.




"Transformation." A walk away from the office is a lighted sculpture of three stacked laminated glasses. Beautifully lit from the inside and incorporating a system of cascading water set in a fountain pool, this art form really makes you think and what makes it personal is that it does have different interpretations to anyone who appreciates it. For me it looked like buildings sprouting from the ground which is metaphoric to the economy of the country today which is reaping the foundations set from the previous administration.






And here's an unnamed art pieces just outside my office building. If you guys know it, please let me know. But the way I see it, it depicts the arrival of voyagers to our land, the story of Mactan perhaps. It is poetic, the lines are fluid, and the movement is dynamic.




These installations all over the metro are probably the most overlooked. Little do we know about how much went through from the proposal and creative thought process and beyond. Kudos to the artists, their engineers, workers and the firms behind these. Continue to make the city's capital a cradle of world-class beauty. If you know the artists, please comment below so I may give where credit is due.

I can only wonder and get struck in silence since people here don't seem to mind them. And since I am trying to fit in, it is best to act like the locals and keep my ignorance in check. There are ways to appreciate them like blogging or Instagramming them anyway. But if I have my way, I could stare at it for hours and never even flinch. That's what I used to do when I go out on my own anyway. Maybe because I love art by heart but I think it is more reminiscent of loving where I am in my life today.

There are more art installations and spots I have yet to check out so watch out for it!
