21 Days to Creativity

According to a World Economic Forum report, creativity is one of the top three skills individuals will need to be successful in the new, digital world. Creative thinking helps one find new ways of solving problems by having an open and flexible mindset.

Researchers have also found that it takes at least 21 days to cultivate a habit. So, if you’re game to make creativity a habit, let us help you with these 21 ideas – all you need is a Windows device to get started!

1.    Start with the end in mind by having a creative checklist on OneNote – which can be synced easily across devices.
2.    Doodle! Long thought to be a bad habit, doodling can actually help unlock one’s creative potential. Pick up a Pen today and start doodling on Windows Ink’s Sketchpad, a whitespace for your ideas and creations . You may be surprised at what you can create.
3.    Bring a new dimension to your stories by combining photos, videos, and even 3D effects. Change your home videos forever with a T-rex chasing grandpa down the front lawn. All this is possible with Story Remix*, coming soon to Windows 10.
4.    Mixed reality is undoubtedly the next step in the evolution of human computing, blending virtual and physical worlds into one immersive whole. With Mixed Reality Viewer (available on Windows Store), you can take any 3D objects into the real world with the device’s camera.
5.    Take your creativity to the limit and create a 3D kingdom from scratch. With your friend, co-create buildings, machines and more in Minecraft Realm. Take your Realm with you across multiple devices including Windows 10 PC, Xbox, VR and even mobile devices – so your creativity is not limited by the devices you have.
6.    Exchange ideas better with a direct expression of your thoughts. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update makes it easier to let others know how you truly feel with quicker access to emojis. Hit the Windows + . (period) or Windows + ; (semicolon) shortcut to bring up the new Emoji keyboard .
7.    What is the most creative color? Orange, it seems, as it blends the energy of red and the happiness of yellow.
So why not change your Windows theme color to creative orange to see if it stirs up any inspiration? Just head over to Windows Settings > Personalization > Themes.
8.    Looking for a new way to present your ideas in a more visual and creative manner? Office apps now support 3D models, where you can insert, rotate and tilt these images within documents and presentations.
9.    There is no doubt that play is essential for creativity, which is why we’ve built Xbox capabilities within Windows 10 so that you can toggle between work and play easily. For those who are seeking pointers from fellow gamers, enjoy the flexibility to broadcast with Mixer, the easiest and most interactive way to stream your gameplay on Xbox One and Windows 10.
10.    With the Windows Fall Creators Update, Game Mode is now more powerful than ever before. With just a single tap, the feature unleashes your PC’s full processing power to make your gameplay as smooth as possible.
11.    It might sound counterintuitive, but a key aspect process that feeds creativity is drilling into repetitive tasks. After all, you can only break the rules in a meaningful way after you’re truly familiar with them. Take a shot at this with Cuphead, a classic run and gun action game exclusively available for Windows and Xbox, that will test the limits of your patience as you repeat level after level to figure out your enemy’s attack patterns and weaknesses.
12.    Bend your minds with a new reality in town. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, we are making it easier for you to immerse in a new reality with Windows Mixed Reality headset*. These are easy to setup, affordable and brings a new realm of experiences to broaden your creative perspectives.
13.    Explore new creative processes! The Six Thinking Hats, for example, is a simple and effective parallel thinking process that helps one be more productive, focused, and mindfully involved. Try creating this structure on your Sticky Notes for Windows 10 devices, so that it serves as a constant reminder to your creativity journey.
14.    Fun fact: An average person sits between 7 – 15 hours per day. Perhaps it’s time to take a walk and bring your Windows device outdoors, and open your eyes to new creative possibilities by taking pictures of new scenes to place 3D visuals in within Paint 3D.
15.    Hit a creative roadblock? We all have those moments. To kick start your creative gears, try checking out Remix3D, a collection of 3D models that you can download and modify for your next masterpiece.
16.    When it comes to developing a creative and focused mind, the pen is mightier than the keyboard. Research has found that people who write more are often better at grasping new concepts, and can stay in focus better. Start by taking notes with a digital pen instead of your keyboard on OneNote today.
17.    Try this exercise to flex your mind on Sketchpad:
a.    On a blank piece of canvas, draw 30 circles
b.    In 3 minutes, turn as many of these circles into recognizable objects, such as a smiley face, a soccer ball, a button or other round items
18.    What did you draw? No matter the result, the exercise helps stretch the limits of your imagination, challenging the speed, diversity and quantity of your ideas within a set timeframe.Is Pharell’s “Happy” a musical stimulant for creative minds? A study notes the connection between happy music and creativity. And with the upcoming iTunes and Spotify apps for Windows 10, you can start prepping your go-to playlist to juice up your creative powers!
19.    Review your creative journey easily with Windows 10 Timeline*, which will be available on a later date. Rewind and restore open programs and documents, allowing you to hop back to where you left off without breaking your creative flow.
20.    Having a proper rest is important to keep your creative juices flowing. Researchers have noted that an optimal sleep period is between 7 – 9 hours per day for adults. However, if you’re on a creative streak and don’t want to go to bed just yet, turn on the Night Light to reduce the amount of blue light flashing out of your PC. This will help you get a better night’s sleep once you log off and hit the pillows.
21.    While you embark on your creativity journey with Windows 10, it is equally important to safeguard your digital safety. Windows Defender gets better with the Fall Creators Update with behind-the-scenes defenses against newer threats that can derail your creativity processes.
Remember to have this feature switched on by going to Settings > Update & security > Windows Defender and turn on the toggle switch for real-time protection.

To find out more about the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and the slew of new, creative experiences it will bring, visit www.microsoft.com/windows

Kuya J goes 100 - SM City Puerto Princesa Branch

Kuya J Restaurant, the once hole-in- the-wall in Cebu and now one of the fastest growing casual dining restaurants in the country, has done no other Filipino restaurant has achieved – to open 100 stores in just 2 years after its launch.

The restaurant celebrated its huge milestone #CheersTo100 at the Event Center of the recently opened SM City Puerto Princesa in Palawan, together with its one and only blockbuster bida, Jericho Rosales. 

“We wanted the 100 th store to be significant. We chose Puerto Princesa City to house our 100 th store because the City plays a vital role in tourism and community development,” answered Winglip Chang, President and Chief Executive Officer of iKitchen, the company behind Kuya J, when asked about the reason for placing Kuya J’s restaurant in SM City Puerto Princesa. 
Hundreds of fans and Kuya J lovers gathered to take part in the celebration with Echo serenading them with a medley of his top hits. “Our 100 th store is not only a result of the hardwork and passion of the entire Kuya J family. It’s actually more of the overwhelming love and support of Filipino families all over the country,” shared Mr. Danny Pumarega, Chief Operating Officer of Kuya J. 

Most guests of Kuya J during the event were first-time to visit the restaurant complimenting the interiors, which are clean and homey with relaxing furniture that makes you enjoy the food even more. Mr. Chang also said, “We are not going to stop at 100 stores. We want to continue building as many stores as possible together with continuous improvement.” 

Looks like Kuya J is showing no signs of slowing down in letting Filipinos get a taste of its delicious dishes and the heartwarming experience that goes with it. Now, if Kuya J has done what seemed impossible possible, just imagine what it can do in the next year or two. 

Who is Kuya J? 

Kuya J Restaurant, formerly known as “Ang Kan-anan ni Kuya J,” started as a humble eatery along the streets of Cebu. But with Kuya J’s undeniably delicious dishes, mouthwatering words of recommendation quickly spread into every Cebuanos’ palate. 

With that, Kuya J instantly became one of the well-loved restaurants in Cebu. But who is Kuya J? There were a lot of curiosity among locals about who is referred to in Kuya J’s name. The President of iKitchen answered that the restaurant’s name refers to no particular person, but a brand that symbolizes the Filipino family where there are a lot of names starting with J like Jose, John, Joseph, and Jericho. 

To this day, the restaurant continues to satisfy every Filipino family’s appetite nationwide. Using only the freshest ingredients available, Kuya J cooks up a storm of delicious Pinoy food in every corner of the Philippines. 

Does Jericho own Kuya J? “In a way, yes,” said Jericho Rosales in front of the media, who got a chance to have an intimate moment with the bida and Kuya J’s top management talking about the monumental feat and the exciting future of the restaurant. 

The blockbuster bida added that Kuya J became a part of him as he took pride in the brand that truly embodies the Filipino culture that is family-oriented. Echo is actually the perfect endorser for Kuya J. 

He is one of the award-winning drama actors in the country and the best Kuya to his family. Kuya J finds him very inspiring with his trait of always putting his heart into everything that he does, especially when touching people’s lives. 

Kuya J Favorites After trying the food at Kuya J Restaurant, one could not be surprised how much people love their interpretations of Filipino favorites, which are very reasonably priced. Some of the local favorites so far are the following: 

The Grilled Scallops (P230) is a fresh reminder of Cebu because every restaurant there has some version of this dish. Each scallop shell is covered in a generous amount of cheese and garlic that enhances the umami flavor of the seafood. 

The Chorizo Dinamitas (P170) might be thought to be super spicy, but an initial bite could lead anyone to eating more. Chopped Cebu chorizo and cheddar cheese make it a salty-sweet appetizer with a nice crunch and mild spiciness. 

The star of the feast at Kuya J is their Kuya J’s Crispy Pata (P490/regular, P695/family). Served on a wooden board with a serving ready to cut up the crispy pork trotter into easy to eat pieces. The skin is satisfyingly crispy with tender, juicy and flavorful meat inside. 

The fat is also just a thin layer between the skin and the meat, perfect. Another dish they are proud of is the Kare-Kare (P399). The sauce goes really well with rice while the ox tail has been cooked fork tender. 

This will really make you eat more rice than you intend. Be sure to save room for dessert like the showstopping Mango Pandan (P80). 

You’d hardly expect a glass of mango and pandan jelly cubes with condensed milk to be topped with beautiful spun sugar. 

Or you might want to try their very Espesyal Halo-Halo treat. A sweet ending to a Filipino feast. #Cheersto100 Treat In addition to its 100 th store celebration, Kuya J has prepared an espesyal treat for its customers. 

From October 7 to 31, 2017, 2PM to 5PM, the Kuya J Original and Ube Halo- Halo Espesyal will be available at 50% off. So that means everyone can enjoy the uniquely delicious dessert for only P55 at any Kuya J Restaurant branches nationwide. 

Kuya J Restaurant is a Filipino casual dining restaurant that offers quality dishes such as Crispy Pata, Grilled Scallops, Bulalo, Sisig, Roast Chicken, and more. Visit their website at www.kuyaj.ph to know more about Kuya J.

SM City Puerto Princesa Opens September 15

Known as the Philippines’ last ecological frontier, the province of Palawan is a natural wonder with its vast tracts of tropical rainforests and a huge expanse of marine wilderness.

The province is composed of the long and narrow Palawan Island, which is surrounded by about 1,780 smaller islands and islets. Rocky coves and sandy beaches lie in primordial splendor along Palawan’s almost 2,000-kilometer coast. Renowned underwater explorer Jacques Costeau has described Palawan as having one of the most beautiful seascapes in the world. Sprawled beneath its seas are nearly 11,000 square kilometers of coral reefs; while myriads of fish swim in these underwater gardens.

Palawan has probably more protected areas than any other province – the Calauit Game Reserve and Wildlife Sanctuary with its exotic and endemic species of animals roaming freely; the El Nido–Taytay Managed Resource Protected Area with its edible bird’s nests and limestone cliffs; and the Tubbataha Reefs, a pair of coral atolls that was named a world heritage site in 1993.

In the heart of Palawan lies the City of Puerto Princesa, a tropical paradise with a bustling urban center perfect for business with leisure trips. Lush rain forests and white sand beaches are simply hours away from the city proper, where a banking, commercial, IT, and BPO boom have made it one of the country’s fastest developing cities.
And then, of course, there is the Puerto Princesa River National Park, another world Heritage Site that has one of the longest underground rivers in the world with its old growth forests, cathedral caves, limestone cliffs, and unique flora and fauna. It is said that every island is an adventure in Palawan, and there will be so much for both residents and the many tourists to discover when SM City Puerto Princesa opens its doors to the public on September 15, 2017.

Envisioned as Palawan’s premier mall, SM City Puerto Princesa is a resort style complex that reflects the province’s tropical feel while integrating SM’s innovative design approach. SM Prime Holding’s 64 th mall will serve shoppers in Puerto Princesa and Palawan, as well as residents of the nearby provinces of Mindoro, Marinduque, and Romblon in the MIMAROPA region.

Strategically located in a 47-square meter site along Malvar corner Lacao Streets in Puerto Princesa, the three-level 54,000 square meter mall will create a unique identity along the island’s most popular thoroughfare and within a short walk to the well-known Baywalk Park and nearby pier. Striking glass walls at the main entrances and a dramatic linear overhang stretching along Malvar Street create an impressive and inviting appearance for the mall as approached in every direction.

But what makes SM City Puerto Princesa an exciting new lifestyle destination?

I really loved this place many different styles of food. Great music, great ambiance, fun place, well in fact a really nice place to go and chill with family or friends at night.

I love the bamboo inspired of the place, so local and cozy place to be.

 The food were really good and not just that, they have so many varieties to choose from at a very affordable price. Anybody can enjoy and have fun dining at this place.

One down side of this place is that they don't have a decent parking lot/area specially for 4-wheels.
