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!
Truly, traditions are essential in every culture. It creates different experiences for everyone. Take Filipinos, for example… the Christmas season is, no doubt, one of the most celebrated traditions across the county. To my knowledge, the Philippines celebrates Christmas the longest in the world. Malls, establishments and even homes are already adorned with holiday decor and decked out in merry colors as early as September.
But hey… whether it’s the annual Christmas dinner, holiday gift shopping, or getting away and heading off to wonderful destinations, the true meaning of the season is anchored on togetherness. Agree? Some of us may be oceans apart but our love for one another brings everyone closer.
And just because times are changing fast doesn’t mean our old traditions are going away anytime soon. On the contrary, today’s digital lifestyle allows old traditions to be relived and made even more exciting! How? Through the use of technology, of course. By turning these traditions into new ones, using the latest digital trends from Globe and allowing everyone to create new memories for a lifetime with the people who matter the most.
When my wife and I go out to enjoy each other’s company over good food, it doesn’t necessarily mean finding a restaurant where we could both have a significantly heavy meal. Sometimes, finding the right spot with the right ambiance and a couple of snacks is enough.
That’s why when we visited Marco Polo Ortigas fairly recently, it was an absolute delight to discover that their beautiful Connect Lounge offers a wonderful Afternoon Tea selection.
I had an incredible time enjoying the various delightful offerings that accompany this Afternoon Tea at Marco Polo Ortigas… and I’m quite sure you will, too. That’s why I’d like you to check out what you can expect during your own visit to this place.

If there’s one thing I truly admire about the people in Korea, it is perhaps in how they love their culture and care for their national heritage. You can sense the kind of pride Koreans have when it comes to their nation’s history and humble beginnings. During my South Korea trip, the wonderful people of […]
