To celebrate the launch of Jollibee’s newest (and incredibly delicious) offering – the Jolly Crispy Flavored Fries – Jollibee organized a fun event filled with activities, friendly competition and camaraderie.
Every 9th of April of each year, our nation celebrates ARAW NG KAGITINGAN (Day of Valor).
Araw ng Kagitingan is sometimes also called Bataan Day or Bataan and Corregidor Day. However way people prefer to call this special occasion, this is the day when we, as a nation, honor the courage and heroism of the Filipino and American soldiers, not to mention our brave civilians, who valiantly stood against the Japanese troops on the Fall of Bataan during World War II. This includes those who were part of the infamous Bataan Death March — a 140-kilometer walk where countless soldiers died.
Acer sure knows how to throw a party. A #TooZesty party no less!
Just last week, the wonderful folks of Acer Philippines brought me and a couple of friends to the powdery white sands and crystal clear blue waters of beautiful Boracay to celebrate our zest for life and be one with them as they launch their newest smartphone – the Acer Liquid Zest.
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.

You can truly learn and greatly experience a culture of a people through their food. A great deal of a nation’s heritage can be discovered through the flavors and various aromas the ingredients of their dishes have. That being said, last Wednesday, it was as if I was immediately transported to Latin America when I […]
Taste is relative. What is flavorful and delicious for me may not be the same for you and vice-versa. That, in my opinion, is what makes putting up food spots very tricky. One has to be able to cater to a good number of people and be unique enough in order to be successful and […]

Regarded by the tech brand as the best Android phone in the market today with a 16-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera, the Gionee ELife E7 will finally be unveiled in Metro Manila for everyone […]
I’d like to thank 8List for featuring me on their website recently. If you aren’t aware of what 8List is, it’s a fun website that features different kinds of information and fun factoids that range from drop-dead serious to the randomly hilarious… each one of them held down to a list of 8. Why 8? […]
Earlier, my wife and I went over the topic of how my mother’s passing on exactly the eve of my birthday could’ve actually been more deliberate on her part rather than coincidental. You see, my mom and I never really saw eye to eye on a lot of things. We’d disagree a lot of times. […]
I recently got wind through good friend, Ronnie Henares, about an awesome goodwill and charity event happening tomorrow to help our fellow kababayans who were severely affected by the recent flooding. Bottega Studio by L.A. based photographer and stylist (husband and wife tandem), Mau and Au Mauricio, together with a group of photographers, makeup artists […]
Pictures do not fully describe the true devastation caused by Typhoon Yolanda. This was the thought that first crossed my mind when I visited the devastated towns of Sara and Carles in the province of Iloilo. These Visayas towns are just some of the places that are in really terrible shape in the wake of […]
Just a quick hello (and goodbye) before I, together with a few good friends who happen to be cool bloggers, too, fly to Iloilo (with the help of our awesome friends from Air Asia Zest) to help out on relief efforts for victims of Typhoon Yolanda. I’ll keep you all posted from time to time.
