Pasta is good for you. In fact, it’s the better kind of carbohydrate compared to white bread and rice.
But did you know that pasta is good for your smartphone and tablet as well? It’s true! Just not the kind of pasta you think, though.
The Pasta I’m referring to is the cool looking charge and sync cable created by thecoopidea (The Coop Idea).
They say that a car is the extension of your own home.
If that is the case, then naturally, the extension of your home should be every bit just as homey, comfortable and secure, wouldn’t you think?
Call it coincidence or call it fate, but my wife and I have long been planning to get a new car for our family and it just so happens that we were given a most welcome opportunity to try out the Chevrolet Sonic for a couple of days. Apart from that, it was serendipitous that during the same time we were to test drive this cute yet sturdy looking vehicle, our family was also scheduled to travel up north and visit the cities of Vigan and Baguio.
It was the perfect window to see what the Chevrolet Sonic had to offer in terms of performance.
But, hey… let’s admit it. One doesn’t depend on performance alone when choosing a car. Looks also play an important part and is a major factor in the deciding process. So, before we head out on the road, let’s have a look-see to find out if the Chevrolet Sonic is every bit a beauty.
The Chevrolet Sonic is a sub-compact car that combines bold styling, state-of-the-art connectivity features and engine performance in one smart vehicle package. Given its looks and size, the Chevrolet Sonic obviously caters to the new generations’ multi-faceted lifestyle and seems to be the perfect vehicle for customers who want more than just a simple car to get around the metro.
Who doesn’t love protective cases? Apart from a case’s main purpose of keeping your device unharmed from nicks and bumps, it also gives your phone some much needed character.
A case’s design is a statement. It also tells a lot about you and your individuality. And hey, admit it… we are all about standing out and being unique, right?
That being said, I’m featuring a brand that is known to produce beautifully sleek and very functional protective cases for various smartphones and tablets – Urban Armor Gear (UAG for short).
And since I can’t showcase all their cases in one fell swoop (because they’ve got lots!), lemme start with just one for now… their “Maverick” for the iPhone 6.
Since I love the sleek clean look of my iPhone 6, it was a no-brainer that I’d be partial to the Maverick’s “clear” variant. That way, I get the best of both worlds – beauty and functionality.
We are a family of five in our household – me, my wife, our two kids, and my father.
One of the usual challenges of being in a family with different tastes is reaching a compromise in the kind of television shows or movies each of us would want to watch together.
Just imagine… sharing one TV over dinner (or lunch) would mean all of us having to agree on a common show. If there were any other good shows airing at the same time, well, tough luck.
Same goes for movies.
More often than not, It gets quite difficult trying to reach a compromise on what flick to watch. I love scary films, my wife hates it. My daughter enjoys girly flicks and kiddie animated features, my son doesn’t.
And because we have work while the kids have school and other activities, finding the right time to catch our favorite shows becomes futile – either our schedules get in the way or we are already too tired to stay awake to catch what’s on TV.
I’m sure some of you, especially those with families of their own can relate.
Thankfully, now I found a way to keep everyone happy by giving them the opportunity to watch their favorite local and international television shows and movies anytime, anywhere.
All thanks to a nifty service I recently discovered called “HOOQ” (pronounced “hook”).
I’m really excited to share this with all of you because you might find yourselves in the same boat as I am. And if you share the same concerns and frustrations as I do, you will most likely consider this a godsend.
In a nutshell, HOOQ is an online entertainment service that gives my family access to an incredibly vast selection of television shows and movies – local and international. That’s more than 10,000 videos right in the palm of our hands for as low as P199. Yes, you read that right – P199!
In the 1960’s, many citizens of Makati would associate the 6749 Ayala Avenue address with the Gilarmi Apartments, the first serviced apartment building in the country. Established in 1962 by Virgilio Hilario, he named the building after his son Gil, and his Miss Universe beauty pageant winning wife, Armi Kuusela. Their level of service was famous all throughout the city, and arguably Asia.
Today, Discovery Primea stands in the same spot as Gilarmi Apartments once rose, and upholds its name and legacy of fine service in Makati at The Gilarmi Lounge. The hotel’s lobby lounge offers various styles and brews of coffee, high tea, cocktails, draught beer and Filipino-inspired bar fare.
The Gilarmi Lounge at Discovery Primea is an ideal venue for intimate groups. The lounge presents patrons with an unparalleled experience of Ayala Avenue through floor to ceiling windows and live piano music, while enjoying a wide variety of coffee or TWG loose leaf teas from 7AM to 11PM daily.
Here’s something to excite you and make you want to drop by The Gilarmi Lounge at Discovery Primea sooner than later…
For a limited time only, The Gilarmi Lounge at Discovery Primea will offer the “The Gilarmi Sunset” promotion from 5PM to 8PM, Mondays through Sundays. For only Php 595++, guests will be able to enjoy two glasses of Stella Artois Draft Beer and their choice of Modern Filipino bar chow, among Grilled Chicken Wings Inasal, Smoked Bangus Spring Rolls, “Sisig sa Riles” with Chili-Soy, Calamansi and Soft-Poached Egg, and Grilled Tuna Brochettes with Crispy Chili Garlic.

I’m a sucker for food. I love eating although it doesn’t quite show now because of the drastic diet and fitness regimen that I had to go through 2 years ago wherein I lost 50lbs in roughly 4 months (185lbs. down to 135lbs.) It takes a substantial amount of effort to stay fit. In fact, […]
What is great food exactly? It’s a pretty tough question if you really think about it. Of course, it has to taste great, no doubt. But great food is also somewhat relative. For example… ampalaya dishes aren’t appealing to me at all, but my wife and my father adores food cooked with this vegetable. So, […]
I’d like to thank everyone who came over to Glorietta and joined in the festivities as we celebrated #SocialMediaWeekend with the theme- “Let’s move #fwdPH”. I had lots of fun hosting the program proper with co-hosts, Patricia Hizon and Bry Ramirez… I hope you guys enjoyed it as well. Congratulations to everyone who made it […]
