Good times and lots of fun nostalgia. That’s exactly what what happened during our “OBMC Alumni Homecoming Episode 2” celebration last night at the Maria Montessori Hall, OB Montessori Center, Greenhills.Read more
Can you imagine a single card so powerful that it can open up a ton of fun and exciting experiences, showcasing the best of the Philippines — from the festive city of Iloilo, the chilly landscapes of Tagaytay, to the thrilling landscape of Manila?
Well, what about being able to discover more of the beauty of the cities and islands around the country, as well as enjoy their delicious cuisines and world-class hospitality, all through the power of one incredible card?
Impossible, you say? Perhaps. But not for the very card I’m holding!Read more
I actually live just a stone’s throw away from the grocery store… and yet, when the usual time comes when we need to do our grocery shopping, I find myself dragging my butt to leave the house. Why? Because the horrible traffic, unruly jeepneys, jaywalkers and motorcycles make getting to the grocery seem like an eternity. And it gets even worse when it rains!
Thank God, nowadays, almost anything can be accessed through our smartphones. From emails and breaking news, to laundry and grocery shopping, everything is conveniently just a few taps away. We no longer have to waste a considerable amount of our lives sitting through road rage inducing traffic and waiting in lines to accomplish mundane errands.
The other day, an LBC Express package delivery addressed to me arrived on our doorstep. I wasn’t expecting anything during that particular day so I was curious to find out what this was.
Upon opening this medium-sized box, I immediately saw a card with my name and my blog’s name on it.
Going through the card, I learned that the package actually came from the wonderful folks of LBC Express! Oh, cool! Looks like they’re playing Santa this holiday season and sending some Christmas love my way in the form of a #SorpresaPadala package filled with goodies and treats!
Well, it’s that time of the year again when you can feel that undeniable excitement in the air.
No, I’m not talking about Christmas which also happens to be just ’round the corner. I’m talking about that most anticipated time of the year when the newest model of the best phone (in my opinion) on the planet makes its way over to our side of the planet.
I’m talking about the Apple iPhone 7.
Recently, I visited a fairly well known restaurant located right smack in the heart of Rockwell, Makati, known for its delicious and impressive Negrense cuisine – “Kafe Batwan”.
This cool and very homey establishment is owned by celebrity chef and fellow kababayan JP Anglo.
The reason for visiting wasn’t mainly because I wanted to try out Chef JP Anglo’s dishes (although I did get to sample a good number of ‘em during that day). I was there to witness Chef JP being launched as the newest Globe Platinum ambassador.
Indeed, Christmas is just around the corner. Unfortunately, as much as we love the joyful and giving spirit it brings to all of us, much of it is lost the moment we step into the road and take on the ridiculously terrible traffic all over Metro Manila.
The Yultide season makes traveling all the more difficult due to the relentless Christmas rush of holiday shoppers and folks who are most probably moving from one party to another.
In as much as this time of the year is all about “giving”, it is extremely challenging to send over some Christmas joy to friends and family by way of gifts and goodies. Just imagine the eternity it takes for one person taking on Metro Manila’s congested roads in order to drop off a couple of presents. Oh, precious time! And woe to those spending for expensive petrol.
That’s why my wife and I thought of taking advantage of Grabtaxi’s nifty new service called, GrabExpress!
In a nutshell, GrabExpress is pretty much like a personal delivery service. Your very own courier, if you will. And since GrabExpress uses motorcycles as their mode of transport, weaving through traffic and avoiding road congestion is effortless.
Guys, I wanna share something with all of you… I hope you take the time to read this. Believe me… it’s worth it.
I am writing about this because I really want all of you to know about it.
I recently underwent a treatment being offered at Contours Advanced Face and Body Sculpting Institute called “Acutrim”. Acutrim is basically acupuncture but uses laser instead of needles. The session only takes 45-60mins and is virtually painless.
Acutrim promises to increase body metabolism and control your hunger cravings almost instantaneously after your first session. This is something that really got my attention because the constant struggle to control food intake is very real – not just for me, but for a lot of you, too.
What’s in a name?
Well, if you’re an establishment that happens to be associated with the name, “Nobu”, then clearly a lot is riding on the reputation that precedes it.
When Nobu Hotel Manila first opened its doors last year together with City of Dreams Manila’s official coming out party, it immediately became one of the most talked about and much sought after hotels in the country. And with good reason.
Nobu has become a brand known for qualities such as beauty, comfort and attention to detail. Their restaurants and hotels constantly provide the kind of excellence that has made them the destination of choice of individuals who seek great food and impeccable service.
Nobu Hotel Manila, as with all other Nobu Hotels around the world, is inspired by world-renowned Chef, Nobu Matsuhisa, and his dazzling array of hip, modern restaurants. Partnering with him is none other than Academy award winning actor Robert De Niro and Hollywood producer Meir Teper. Their establishments are designed by the internationally-acclaimed Rockwell Group, whose hand also created the look and feel of Nobu restaurants throughout the world.
My wife and I were able to have a short but very fun staycation at Nobu Hotel Manila just recently and I just have to say, the experience was nothing short of incredible.
And if you’ve never stayed at Nobu Hotel Manila and have been wondering what to expect there, then you’ve come to the right place!
They say that a car is the extension of your own home.
If that is the case, then naturally, the extension of your home should be every bit just as homey, comfortable and secure, wouldn’t you think?
Call it coincidence or call it fate, but my wife and I have long been planning to get a new car for our family and it just so happens that we were given a most welcome opportunity to try out the Chevrolet Sonic for a couple of days. Apart from that, it was serendipitous that during the same time we were to test drive this cute yet sturdy looking vehicle, our family was also scheduled to travel up north and visit the cities of Vigan and Baguio.
It was the perfect window to see what the Chevrolet Sonic had to offer in terms of performance.
But, hey… let’s admit it. One doesn’t depend on performance alone when choosing a car. Looks also play an important part and is a major factor in the deciding process. So, before we head out on the road, let’s have a look-see to find out if the Chevrolet Sonic is every bit a beauty.
The Chevrolet Sonic is a sub-compact car that combines bold styling, state-of-the-art connectivity features and engine performance in one smart vehicle package. Given its looks and size, the Chevrolet Sonic obviously caters to the new generations’ multi-faceted lifestyle and seems to be the perfect vehicle for customers who want more than just a simple car to get around the metro.
