My recent trip to the “Queen City of the South” to do a pre-opening visit to Vikings Luxury Buffet Cebu was a particularly pleasant one. Of course, much had to do with the amazing company I was with. But another reason why I enjoyed my trip so much was also because of the hotel I stayed in — Movenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu.
Great news!!! AirAsia, the World’s Best Low Cost Carrier for seven consecutive years, is now offering direct flights from Manila to Shanghai starting June 10, 2016 with all-in promotional fares starting from as low as P2,888 only.
AND YOU CAN GET TO EXPERIENCE FLYING DIRECTLY TO SHANGHAI FROM MANILA FOR FREE! Read on to know more about my trip to Shanghai giveaway below.
According to Philippines AirAsia’s Commercial Head Gerard Peñaflor, they are thrilled to re-connect Manila-Shanghai to boost tourism and trade between both countries and in anticipation of the formal opening of Shanghai Disneyland in June. They are offering exciting promo fares for Filipinos to fully enjoy this magical place that so many people have been raving about.
Cake! It’s the universal symbol for celebrations and parties. It brings people together and makes for “sweet” memories of friendship and love amongst families and friends.
But, not all cakes are created equal. In fact, not all bakeshops are either. A great bakeshop is not measured by how big its facility is or the number of branches one has. Bottomline — it is still (and always will be) about the product and its many other offerings.
I say this because I happened to chance upon a very young establishment along Tomas Morato Ave. in Quezon City called, Quim’s Cake Bakeshop and Cafe.
Quim’s Cake Bakeshop and Cafe is a corporation owned by pastry chef, Jack Labang, marketing & advertising practitioner, Anthony Haber; culinary chef Ruben “Jhollow” Ignacio, young entrepreneur, Mary Joy Rodriguez and a few investor-partners from different sectors.
If this place sounds familiar to you or seems to ring a bell, well, that’s because this little bakeshop that could has been making huge waves on social media for the past couple of months and has been making it big on the local and international news as of late.
Aha! Remember now?
I’m a huge fan of Grab. Whether it’s GrabCar, GrabTaxi, GrabExpress, GrabBike or GrabHeli. There really is no downside to any of Grab’s services and I’m sure those who have also experienced its convenience will easily agree with me.
In case you’re one of those who still take the cab more often than GrabTaxi, allow me – or Grab, rather – to “drive” the message home (pardon the pun) through their miniseries of fun short videos starring Alex Gonzaga entitled, “Misadventures of Alex”.
GrabTaxi’s Misadventures of Alex shows the different benefits of booking a GrabTaxi instead of taking regular ones. The episodes are very entertaining and quite amusing. In the end, if you think about it… there really is a huge amount of truth in the scenarios depicted on each video which we can easily relate to.
So, GRAB some popcorn (or whatever junkfood makes you happy) and enjoy all the episodes of the Misadventures of Alex right below.
“…And by the river, in Shanghai… the colour of the sky is something I’ve never seen. After the summer rain, children smile, curious and kind and the world is big again…”

I love places and establishments that are amusingly different and offer something unique.

Wow. Imagine… A fashion show, four band performances, a slew of creative reinventions. Sneakers Clash, a worldwide campaign by Converse, saw the main activity center of Fairview Ayala Terraces last May 10 as a venue where color reigned supreme.
Hello people! Though my mouth is still hurting due to the dental surgery I underwent 5 days ago to extract 2 molars (I still have 3 sutures), I was welcomed with great news this morning via a phone call. Can’t divulge specifics yet but it’s really exciting and it’s happening real soon. Will tell you […]
Some people think that having a trainer in the gym to look after you and encourage you is a waste of time (and money)… It depends actually. Find a trainer that really cares about your progress – not just about fattening his own wallet. That way, you know you’re getting your money’s worth. It pays […]
Yes. The threat is right smack in front of you. If you’re a parent, all the more that you should be vigilant about cyberbullying. Hate pages, discrimination, to extreme humiliation online, cyberbullying is one of the main causes of severe stress, depression and anxiety among today’s youth. If you think that cyberbullying only concerns children […]
It’s hard to explain how one can play with a toy and be scared of it at the same time. Ngayon lang ako nakakita ng taong kinikilabutan sa sariling laruan. Panoorin niyo maglaro ng puppet si Marie Aileen Regina Dreyfus habang sabay na kinikilabutan siya. Hahaha! Ang labo! LOL! :)) Enjoy the short video below…
