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.
Traveling, as merry and exciting as it sounds, can also be quite stressful. The act of traveling itself, I mean. As enjoyable as it may be to explore new sights and discover new things, the first thing one needs to deal with is “getting there”. And though I have always been one who believes that half the fun of a trip is the travel itself, it becomes all the more delightful when the voyage is worry-free. That’s why it’s always a joy to discover new travel options that combine affordability and pleasant service.
During my recent trip to Batanes, I had the opportunity to experience flying via SkyJet Airlines.
Stress, among other things, can most certainly do a lot of damage to your skin. In fact, one of the most evident manifestations of stress and lack of rest can easily be seen on the face.
Given my constant traveling in and out of the country, plus the demands of my work and lifestyle, stress and lack of ample rest can never be avoided. And since having my photo taken every so often is part of the line of work that I’m in, I cannot allow myself to look tired and haggard. So, I try to find other ways to counter the negative effects of this kind of lifestyle.
Some people in the same industry (showbusiness/entertainment) look to moisturizers, lotions, and yes… even surgery. I, on the other hand, have found a means to counter these effects and improve my well-being in a much simpler and incredibly easier way.

Everytime Christmas comes around, it’s always great to find new ways to share and celebrate the festive season with friends and family.
The Philippines is known to celebrate Christmas the longest compared to other countries in the world. And during this long period, we Filipinos love to get together, eat out, and have a merry time with people we love.
My family similarly loves to find time to be together and bond over good food and fun activities especially during the Yuletide season. So, finding new attractions and great places to dine is always something we take seriously.
A couple of days ago, one of our many simple family getaways to celebrate Christmas time was by heading over to SM by the BAY to check out the various cool establishments and attractions.
We decided to visit SM by the BAY because, for one, the 1.5 Km entertainment complex boasts of having one of the best views of the Manila Bay sunset. Apart from that, the place also offers a vast range of dining and buffet options and a unique park experience that are perfect for friends and family.
With the complex operating from 6AM-2AM and restaurants that are open from 11AM-1AM, SM by the BAY offers non-stop fun all year round. The place is open every day – especially during Christmas and New Year.
I particularly loved how one can easily feel the holiday spirit at SM by the BAY because the place is adorned with Christmas decorations, a 75ft Christmas Tree and festive lights installed along the entire stretch of the complex. In addition, music and fireworks can be enjoyed on Fridays and Saturdays at 7PM. Whee!
Also, SM by the BAY offers a wide variety of mouth-watering food as well as fun and exhilarating amusement rides like the iconic MOA Eye.
Here in the Philippines, festivals are times of great joy and celebration wherein our diverse culture and traditions are best showcased.
Some of these festivals celebrate historical occurrences while majority highlight the strong Catholic influence in our country as well as religious commemorations.
While all these celebrations are fine and well, there are a few whose aim is to bring more attention and awareness to certain causes and advocacies. One such occasion is the “Pawikan Festival” in the town of Morong, located in the province of Bataan.

I love to eat. I can pretty much tell when something tastes good. Though, I may not be technical when it comes to a dish’s intricate qualities, my gusto and enthusiasm more than makes up for it (I hope!). Just recently, my wife and I were invited to join an awesome group of buddies (and […]
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”.

Last May 28, 2013, the first gathering ever for members of Globe Community was held at SKYE Lounge at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The meetup was the perfect opportunity for people in Globe Community to actually meet other members in person and to bond with one another.
