Never underestimate the importance of good eyesight. That’s probably one thing I’ve learned as I grew up. Back in the day when I was decades younger, taking care of my eyesight was something I always took for granted. I’d read books and comics for hours on end even with little to no light at all. When my eyes would itch, I’d rub them so hard not thinking of the harm I was actually doing.
I guess, over time… these things, not to mention age, has inevitably led to the eventual degradation of my vision. And as cliche as it may sound, nothing could be truer than the saying that, “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.”
But just because my eyesight isn’t 20/20 anymore doesn’t mean I shouldn’t care for them any less. On the contrary, all the more should one be more careful and cautious of how their eyes are cared for and maintained. That’s the very reason why choosing the right kind of eyeglasses is critical and should not be taken lightly.
When the opportunity came to try out Transitions XTRActive Adaptive Lenses and break them in in beautiful Batanes via SkyJet Airlines, I didn’t think twice. I knew right away that these were the perfect pair of glasses for me.
Are you raring to head over to Kalibo and join the Ati-Atihan festivities? Perfect! There’s no better time than now to fly with Philippines AirAsia, the official airline partner of Ati-Atihan festival 2016, and get exclusive discount treats and bargain deals!
For the first time, Philippines AirAsia is this year’s proud airline partner of Ati-Atihan festival in Kalibo – and the World’s Best Low Cost Carrier for seven straight years running since 2009 is celebrating with exclusive treats for its guests flying to/from Kalibo from Manila and international destinations of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Busan and Seoul in South Korea and various points in China.
I’m actually not one who would immediately think of Chinese food when heading out to eat with friends or family. It’s not that I don’t enjoy Oriental dishes. It is perhaps because I’m more partial to Japanese and Continental fare.
That being said, who would’ve thought I’d have so much fun food tripping in Hong Kong?!
Just recently, my wife and I together with a couple of close foodie friends (The KTG!) and travel buddies were invited to join a fun and adventurous Hong Kong food tour courtesy of Philippines AirAsia and Vikings Luxury Buffet for their “Dine and Fly” promo – their first ever collaboration which just recently concluded. During this campaign, Philippines AirAsia and Vikings gave free trips to Hong Kong and Malaysia (including hotel accommodations) for three days and two nights to two (2) lucky winners. Incredible, right?!
So, this Hong Kong food tour meant trying out dishes – yes, including non-traditional fare – that have helped define this incredible city. And since I am one who never turns down an adventure or a challenge, for that matter, I was naturally all for it.
There are so many reasons why one would want to visit Cebu City. Apart from the friendly people and amazing sights, the “Queen City of the South” boasts of incredible food (Yes! The FOOD!)
And just as of late, a recent (huge) addition to this metropolis has suddenly made Cebu even more attractive to visitors and locals alike.
The addition? SM Seaside City Cebu!
For a good majority of people, there is nothing more relaxing than a day spent destressing by way of retail therapy aka “shopping”!
And there’s no better place, perhaps, to go gaga over great finds than in the beautiful island of Guam where they are currently having their Shop Guam Festival – the largest shopping campaign in the region.
I know this for a fact since I was just recently there to join the Guam Ko’Ko’ Road Race Half-Marathon and Ekiden Relay 2015. The Shop Guam Festival had only kicked off then. True enough, during my visit, there were great finds and ridiculously huge discounts in almost every store you enter.
Now, in order to create more awareness and further highlight this must-not-miss festival, the Guam Visitors Bureau (Guam’s official tourism agency) together with former Canadian Idol contestant and one of YouTube’s biggest breakout stars, Mikey Bustos, have come up with a hilarious music video parody that showcases the awesome things you can experience (and buy, of course) during the Shop Guam Festival.
In his latest parody released recently on Facebook and Youtube, Mikey Bustos once again entertained the world with wacky puns and funny antics. Arranged to the tune of Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”, Mikey made a video about a girl named “Carmela” who loves to shop – especially on her payday! Carmela loves to shop so much, they had to travel to Guam to do it, considering that it is the Asia and Pacific region’s most popular shopping destination.

To those very critical about restaurants offering their profit to charity for victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), saying that they should just donate all the food to relief and that NO ONE should be dining out right now at a time like this… your self-righteousness is quite unfair to the owners of these establishments. […]
My wife and I were invited to attend a food tasting event at Mercato Centrale at Bonifacio Global City earlier today. The event was called “The Next Big Food Entrepreneur”. The were 64 different kinds of food concessionaires handing out free samples of their offerings. And by no means were their samples in small portions! […]
I had a blast during my “Lifestyle Blogging 101” talk yesterday at Living Social’s “Food Festival 2013” held at The Rockwell Tent. It was absolutely fun. I’d like to thank the awesome people of Living Social especially Luisa Jimenez for inviting me to give this talk.
