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 have to say Philippines AirAsia has one of the best (if not THE BEST) in-flight meals anywhere around. I say this with no bias or partiality whatsoever. Anyone who has tried them would most certainly agree.
Philippines AirAsia’s new in-flight meals are well portioned, flavorful, and very satisfying. Apart from that, they have a good selection of meals to choose from. In fact, they’re one of the things I truly look forward to whenever I have a flight.
And Philippines AirAsia knows, just like any master of his/her respective game, that no matter how good you are, there is always room to get better.
True enough… in their desire to become better in order to please every customer that walks into their aircraft, the world’s best low-cost airline has upgraded and come up with a new selection of in-flight meals called, “Santan”. And boy, was I excited the moment I first caught wind of it.
It is worth noting that replacing “AirAsia Café” to “Santan” is part of Philippines AirAsia’s latest offering to enhance customer experience while flying.
For those who aren’t aware, Santan is an essential ingredient in Malay cooking which refers to the liquid obtained from pressing shredded coconut meat that is used in almost all ASEAN dishes. Philippines AirAsia allows passengers to enjoy several fares that pay homage to the incredibly rich ASEAN flavours. Some of these dishes are Nasi Lemak, Chicken Rice, Beef Caldereta and Adobo which are available on certain flights. In addition, our Muslim friends will be glad to know that Philippines AirAsia hotmeals and sandwiches are Halal Certified.
I was able to try a good number of these Santan selections during a tasting session of Philippines AirAsia’s new in-flight meals while traveling to Hong Kong very recently. It goes without saying that I was truly impressed with their newest offerings.
Indeed, Christmas is just around the corner. Unfortunately, as much as we love the joyful and giving spirit it brings to all of us, much of it is lost the moment we step into the road and take on the ridiculously terrible traffic all over Metro Manila.
The Yultide season makes traveling all the more difficult due to the relentless Christmas rush of holiday shoppers and folks who are most probably moving from one party to another.
In as much as this time of the year is all about “giving”, it is extremely challenging to send over some Christmas joy to friends and family by way of gifts and goodies. Just imagine the eternity it takes for one person taking on Metro Manila’s congested roads in order to drop off a couple of presents. Oh, precious time! And woe to those spending for expensive petrol.
That’s why my wife and I thought of taking advantage of Grabtaxi’s nifty new service called, GrabExpress!
In a nutshell, GrabExpress is pretty much like a personal delivery service. Your very own courier, if you will. And since GrabExpress uses motorcycles as their mode of transport, weaving through traffic and avoiding road congestion is effortless.
2016 is just around the corner and things are looking very good for Philippines AirAsia (Yes! That’s how they’re officially called now.)
The hype is building up for AirAsia in the Philippines with the consolidation of its operation two years after its local unit, AirAsia Inc. signed a partnership agreement with home grown airline ZestAir in 2013.
According to Philippines AirAsia CEO, Joy Cañeba, efficient service to their guests and safety are at the heart of everything they do in Philippines AirAsia. They are here to provide only the best value and world-class service that every Filipino deserves.
They say that the only way to conquer your fear is to FACE IT.
And though I’ve always believed in that saying, it has never felt frighteningly truer than when I recently visited the beautiful island of Guam where I had the amazing opportunity to go skydiving. Yes… SKYDIVING! What the eff! Why is an acrophobic like me even considering jumping off a plane flying thousands of feet up in the air?! Well, it didn’t really start out as a done deal when I arrived in Guam. Though the offer to go skydiving has long been standing even weeks before the trip, my decision to actually “take the leap” (pun intended, obviously!) didn’t happen until minutes before our trip to the hangar.
Honestly, Victor and Jeff, whom I was traveling with were also on the fence on taking on this challenge. It was all our first time and we really didn’t know what to expect.

It was an incredibly fun night filled with laughter, banter and lots […]
