LG launched the improved version of its PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, an innovative wearable device designed to improve air quality, the company introduced last year. Worn as a mask, the newest model offers an enhanced performance with its new voice amplification feature, ergonomic design and other features that are recommended for use in the new normal.

“LG has been at work in order to provide meaningful ways of improving the day-to-day of the new normal. The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier has been the talk of the town for over a year now, and here we are for an even better version. I’m excited to introduce to everyone a new product that’s perfect for the new normal,” said Sungjae Kim, LG Philippines managing director.

The new LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier leverages its VoiceON technology which employs a microphone and a speaker built into the device to clearly project the user’s voice, making communications easier to be heard and understand while wearing the mask.

The latest version of the device is equipped with a fully automatic airflow control system which increases breathing comfort. It also incorporates two H13 HEPA filters, the same filter found and used in premium air purifiers for the home, to ensure the air users breathe is as clean and healthy as possible. Driven by an ultra-small and lightweight motor, the device’s dual fans combined with LG’s airflow control technology detects user’s breathing pattern and adjusts airflow accordingly, helping the user breathes easier and more naturally. This technology prevents a common problem for those wearing glasses and mask at the same time, keeping their lenses from fogging up when exhaling. 

The wearable air purifier is made of medical-grade materials to protect users. Boasts of SafePlus multi-filtration system, the device filters out harmful particles, removes 99.9% of viruses, and provides clean air. Apart from these, the device is energized by a battery that is said to offer up to eight hours of usage at a single charge.

With its new design, the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier offers a subtle yet stylish look and comes in two colors: creamy white and ocean black. To guarantee a better fit for more consumers, the device will be offered in medium and large sizes. Its design also fits and seals to user’s face while minimizes air leakage around the nose and chin. The device should be breathable and right fit for the user.

The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is currently available at online stores, Abenson and Electroworld.

Now that the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease is still very active in the country where daily virus transmission is still increasing in terms of number of cases, wearing a mask is highly recommended, apart from other protocols such as social distancing and hand washing. Dr. Ma. Adelina Sadili, consultant pulmonologist at the Makati Medical Center advises everyone to wear mask to stop the spread of the virus. At the event, Sadili presented a transmission model showing the impact of public mask wearing under the full range of mask adherence and efficacy scenarios.

Sadili explained that “if a COVID-19 carrier does not wear mask, the possibility of transmission to a healthy person wearing a mask is very high, at 70%. But, if the COVID carrier wears a mask and the healthy person doesn’t, the possibility of transmission goes down to only 5%. If both are wearing masks then the possibility of transmission goes further down to 2.5%”.

Victoria Court reveals secrets on popular themed suites for Valentine’s Day

Anyone who’s been inside these themed suites can attest that the beauty is in the details. From the Red Light, Green Light guns to the MRT train hand railings and color schemes, the rooms are designed accurately. Maybe too accurately.

Love motels are an open secret to us, and over the years, Victoria Court has been unveiling one themed room after another. You may have heard of their Squid Room suite at the height of the show’s popularity (pandemic doom, we feel you) or their juicy and sweaty nudge to Filipino daily commute (and JAV chikan) with their MRT-inspired room.

Anyone who’s been inside these themed suites can attest that the beauty is in the details. From the Red Light, Green Light guns to the MRT train hand railings and color schemes, the rooms are designed accurately. Maybe too accurately.

After all, aren’t guests the ‘main character’ of their fantasies?

Speaking of getting into your main character era, who isn’t planning a spicy, steamy experience this Valentine’s Day? Whether we hide it or not, it’s been a long-standing tradition for Victoria Court to create an adult playground for love and intimacy this time of the year.

Victoria Court Owner Atticus King weighs in on how they’ve turned the drive-in motel chain’s themed suites from ideas into guests’ short-lived realities: “I had a professor once say, a room is a room is a room. With that in mind, we thought about how important it is to go beyond that, we wanted to give them an experience they couldn’t just get anywhere and that would make a mental mark and become a core memory. “Remember that time we went to VC…”

Yes, how could one forget a rendezvous night spent with their partner trying to live happily ever after? Victoria Court’s Ever After room in Pasig can do just the trick. The room’s jacuzzi is their biggest one yet, and you can literally float on it without touching the sides of the tub. Talk about real happy endings, right?

You’d also be surprised to know which themed rooms are well-suited to the Filipino taste. “We have the most number of suites in our Panorama Branch in Pasig. There, our top 10 busiest rooms are CLOY, Chips, Squid Room, Oval Office, Venice, Bachelor’s Pad, Moulin Rouge, Cirque, 50 Shades, and yes, Princess Jasmine,” Chief Operating Officer Sam Pineda reveals.

We’re not here to gatekeep on other steamy perks these rooms have to offer. “Aside from custom-built jacuzzis, we have rooms with playful additions like places to strap folks in. Our Homerun and Casting Couch rooms in Pasig are good examples,” Pineda adds.

Of course, behind each themed room is a story of how it came to be. “It’s a combination of looking at what is trending, what is underserved, and what we think looks fun. When we built the Oval Office room, my father [the late Archie King] said I’d end up losing my visa because it was a replica of the Oval Office but my selling point was how often can you say I’ve partied in the Oval Office? The room was a hit when we launched it and I didn’t lose my visa,” King explains, laughing.

But how exactly does the motel chain decide which fandom or Netflix show will turn into the next themed suite? “We have several recipes but to be honest, sometimes themes we think will be a big hit just do okay and others that are okay do exceptionally well. We always listen to our guests and we try to design themes to make their crazy fantasies real,” King says.

Even then, Victoria Court has moved away from its public perception of being a mere ‘biglang-liko’ or place for illicit affairs to a hotel chain that hosts (wholesome) parties and offers an award-winning food menu.

“The bigger suites are typically what end up hosting parties (and some couple stays). For couple stays, we find that while some regulars have a favorite room, others prefer not to use a room they’ve already seen – and that’s what’s beautiful about it,” Pineda explains. “You can choose or you can just go for any and be (pleasantly) surprised!”

Guests, despite being discreet, aren’t shy to offer a thought or two about these rooms. “We’ve received great feedback from either camp, with some loving the variety, while others have a favorite jacuzzi, enjoying the special effects, the tantra chair, or even something as simple as preferring rooms with more mirrors.” Pineda says.

Not all themed rooms are here to stay, though. But some rooms are classics and crowd-favorites that guests will always come back to now and then. “When we see a certain theme starting to look dated, we decide whether to reinvest to upgrade it or what we fondly like to call belo and make it fresh again or we take a vote on what new theme we can reintroduce.”

But more than rooms to play out fantasies is a vision to create an adult Disney experience for King: “I think our product will continue to evolve to serve couples looking for an experience that will bring them right to the edge of their comfort zone and inject that feeling of adventure.”

Well, folks, it’s time to head over to the nearest Victoria Court branch this Valentine’s Day and see their themed suites for yourself. You’ll never know what you’ll find there–a newfound fantasy or a tantalizing experience that will keep you on your toes, craving for more.

Of course, you should also take a break in between tasks. One way you can make this free time more enjoyable is with a new coffee blend, like Great Taste Cream-O.

Making the moment even more enjoyable for the students, the brand collaborated with one of the University’s dance groups, and a guest influencer, to entertain guests with an energetic dance number.
