Nano technology used

Because of its unique sunscreen coating technology, Nano Coat can block the sun’s heat and harmful UV rays without blocking the sunlight, thus allowing a feeling of freedom from the traditional dark sunscreen.

Using a combination of nano and sol-gel technologies, Nano Coat is easy to apply and maintain. After 30 minutes of application, your window is ready to use minus the heat and UV rays from the sun.

Nano Coat removes the discomfort and fatigue caused by the sun’s heat, prevents damage and color fading to personal belongings, and avoids skin dryness and potential diseases.

The clearer and sharper image adds comfort to the eyes, giving old windows a new look. And because it is odorless and non-toxic, it’s safe to apply Nano Coat even with people around.

An economical and environment-friendly solution to a long-time nuisance, Nano Coat provides savings in cooling power cost.

Ms. Denise Lao and Ms. Nicole Beltran are Hello Kitty collectors – Some of their collections are exhibited on the upper floors of the mall.

Hello Kitty collection of Ms. Jillan Ward

Ms. Jillian Ward is a child star of GMA Kapuso channel 7 who played  Gertrudis “Trudis” Capili in Trudis Liit and television endorser

Almost all collectors thought she was created  in Japan, since she was created by designer Yuko Shimizu back in the 1974 as a character design embedded in a coin purse for Sanrio. I would also remember that majority  of my female classmates in elementary collected Hello Kitty stuffs.
