Why Media in the Philippines Blur Brands on the Background?

Pin It

 I'm not a Communication graduate, nor Journalism nor an Advertising professional. I am just sharing an observation... Why does Philippine TV blurs any brands which were 'accidentally' captured by their cameras? It is evident when they are soewhere with billboards in the background; or when a label of a product is in the frame (like Supermarkets). Foreign media never does that (Or I just haven't seen yet?). And why is it also that they can't mention brands and "proper names" when newscasting? Like they

Like: "Isang nakawan ang naganap sa isang SIKAT NA MALL sa Quezon City." or "Hinihingan pa sa ngayon ng komento ang may-ari ng NASABING ENERGY DRINK."

Transport officer breaks queueing policy

Pin It

It was the policy here in Dubai that all ladies should go first in the public transport queue, and if she is with her husband, the husband can go with her. But last Friday's experience was totally different. It was the first time we commuted in 3 months. The officer scolded us to go at the back of the long line. When I insisted that we are on the right policy, he threatens us right there that he'll give us a fine. His explanation: The queue is too long for us to cut and go ahead. We are not cutting, nor violating any rule we know.

Can the policies, simple or not, here in Dubai be broken at any time anybody wanted?

In Dubai, thousands also care for typhoon Ondoy victims

Pin It

This was the biggest 'morning' crowd I've seen so far in many cause-oriented events here in Dubai. Gulfnews estimates the crowd to 15,000. But I think it's just half of that number really. But still it's the biggest I've witnessed.

What's pleasing is the fact that proceeds of this event will go to aid the typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng victims in my home country Pilipinas.

Normally, it's hard to mobilize people for such a 'morning' event. Truly every Filipino here, and our brothers and sisters from other countries as well have a very big heart to reach out - in the way we can.

Dubai cares too. Click here for more photos.
