The country’s number one family fast food chain, Jollibee, has recently unveiled its newest batch of Yumbassadors — young Filipino achievers who have excelled and continuously trail blaze in their respective fields, serving as role models for today’s Generation Y.
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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]
Travel seems to be in everyone’s mind nowadays, especially during summertime. If you weren’t able to plan out your recent Holy Week getaway (or even if you did), don’t fret! Now is the perfect opportunity to fly and see more of the Philippines. It’s the AirAsia Zest RED HOT SALE! Woohoo!
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 […]
