Just a couple of days ago, I had so much fun attending an incredibly creative and unusually delightful event by our beloved chocolate bar, SNICKERS! Last Saturday, Snickers launched their #DontDriveHungry initiative with the ingenious idea of providing temporary license plates and car stickers to countless individuals who have waited quite a while for their official plates to be released by the Land Transportation Office (LTO). It is also a great way of reminding people to drive safe by not driving hungry.
Why come up with a SNICKERS Don’t Drive Hungry campaign, you ask?
You see, a study released by a top global navigation app revealed that Metro Manila was named as (get this!) “having the worst traffic on Earth.” Not only that. In the survey’s “Driver Satisfaction Index” the Philippines also did poorly, with a score of 3.9 (10 being satisfying and 1 being miserable). Tsk! Apart from that, Manila also topped the survey for the longest time spent commuting from home to office with an average time of 45.5 minutes, though some motorists report longer travel times especially during rush hour.
Ah! Now it makes perfect sense, right?
Oh, boy! Who among you guys waited with bated breath and eager anticipation for the start of the Manila International Auto Show 2016 which opened its doors last April 7, 2016? I know I was one of ‘em.
Every year, for just a couple of days here in the Philippines, all roads (pun intended!) lead to the Manila International Auto Show. This annual event which is co-presented by BPI Family Savings Bank, never fails to mount a spectacular showcase of automobiles that draws not just car aficionados but even common folk who are simply looking to get their own brand new vehicle.
I had an absolute blast a couple of nights ago when I was invited by my good friends from Discovery Primea especially Executive Chef Luis Chikiamco to an intimate yet spectacular dinner at Tapenade.
Since the first time I visited Tapenade at Discovery Primea, it has always remained one of my top go-to restaurants for excellent food at very reasonable prices. The restaurant never fails to impress any guest who has dined there – first-timer or otherwise.During my recent visit, Chef Luis prepared a sneak preview of what to expect when this awesome establishment launches their very own Mozzarella Bar very soon. Chef also whipped up an incredible lineup of impressive dishes, some of which are only on a limited run so it’s best to read on and visit Tapenade soonest.
Let’s begin, shall we?

It’s no secret that I love burgers. I would normally go for a thick juicy burger rather than a typical lunch meal that has rice. I go crazy over burger joints that not just aim to please but overwhelmingly satisfy. Nothing beats a perfectly prepared meaty burger dripping with its own glorious juices. OMG. Talking about […]

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 […]

Family bonding is something that I take quite seriously. My wife and I always make it a point to find ways to spend good quality time with our kids on a regular basis. Good quality time need not be far from the city nor should it be pricey. What matters is how these moments are […]
