LIBRENG PASYALAN: Meralco Liwanag Park Now Open


LIBRENG PASYALAN: Meralco Liwanag Park Now Open
For our Libreng Pasyalan ideas, I highly recommend Meralco Liwanag Park in Ortigas Avenue. Having a hard time balancing the family budget? Worry not! You could still make your whole family happy by bringing them to Meralco Liwanag Park. Entrance to the park is FREE. 
 
You and your whole clan can enjoy riding the electric train which can accommodate around sixteen (16) people and goes around the track with a Christmas tree in the middle around four or five times.  You bet sulit talaga ang pumunta sa Meralco Liwanag Park!
Meralco environment friendly cars are also available to tour you and your family inside the Meralco compound. Present during the opening of Maliwanag ang Pasko campaign of Meralco and Liwanag Park opening is Manny V. Pangilinan better known as MVP inside the Meralco Compound, Lopez Building in Ortigas Avenue Pasig City. Meralco’s Maliwanag ang Pasko and Liwanag Park is really a great place to relax and enjoy the Christmas night breezy air. 
 
I was invited by Martin to Meralco's Liwanag Park Opening last November 20,2012. After we register, Martin told us to have some refreshment at the lobby.
We were welcomed by this chorale group at the lobby of the Meralco building. They sang various songs for the entertainment of the media, bloggers and guests present during the event.
 
After a while the program started with a welcome remarks by child star Zaijian Jaranilla better known as " Santino".
 Santino reading his welcome remarks.
 Gangnam style performance by the Meralco employees and power rangers.
MVP intently watching the dance performances by the Power Rangers and Meralco employees. After this dance number we were asked to step outside, for another dance number participated by the guests, Mascot of Meralco and the employees.
After a short program MVP together with the bosses of Meralco and guest Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2011 Shamcey Supsup together with the Meralco Bolts switch on the light and officially open the Liwanag Park to the public. Let there be light! Woooooooooooooooooooot! And there was light!
 
Meralco once again opens its Liwanag Park to the public in time for the Christmas season. The park features light displays and attractions like Christmas figures made of scrap copper wire, a mini train ride for visitors, the Toy Town and a bazaar among others. In recent years, the park has been recognized as a must-see Christmas destination in the metro. The park will be open to the public every day, until January 6, 2013 from 6:00 P.M. up to 10:00 P.M. Monday through Sunday.
 
In a related development, the Department of Tourism (DOT) recently partnered with Meralco to help set up other Liwanag Parks in different cities and municipalities within Meralco’s franchise area. This partnership aims to brighten the country during the Christmas season and to put it on the map as one of the world’s best tourist destinations during the holidays. In helping decorate these Liwanag Parks, Meralco will provide each participating LGU with a Maliwanag ang Pasko starter kit composed of a giant parol and 500 boxes of Christmas lights. LGUs with the best Liwanag Parks will get prizes from Meralco.
 The ceremonial lighting was capped with a fabulous fireworks!
 
The Liwanag Park and the partnership with the DOT are just part of the larger Maliwanag ang Pasko program of Meralco, though. Under the program, Filipino households, too, are enjoined to do their part in lighting up their homes this season. In return, they get the chance to win prizes. To join, they may take a photo of their lighted homes or of any of the Liwanag Parks and upload them on the Meralco Facebook page. Every entry helps contribute to Meralco’s program of energizing public schools in Palawan, Bohol, Quezon and Dinagat Islands. By joining the program, customers, therefore, not only help brighten their communities, but they also get the opportunity to help uplift public schools in the country and provide a better future for underprivileged school children.
 
Started in 2006, the Maliwanag ang Pasko (MAP) seeks to encourage Meralco’s customers to light up and decorate their homes, establishments and cities to spread the beauty and joy of Christmas in their communities. Other programs lined up for the Christmas season too.
 
For more details on the Maliwanag ang Pasko program, contest mechanics and the list of Liwanag Parks, you may visit the Meralco Facebook page (facebook.com/meralco). Tara! Pasyal tayo sa Liwanag Park!

TUTUBAN CENTER NIGHT MARKET: Exciting Shopping Nights


TUTUBAN CENTER NIGHT MARKET: Exciting Shopping Nights
It's Christmas time and everyone are excited to shop for the coming holiday season. My friend Grace is such a sucker for bargain goods. I bet like my friend, you also wishes that the shopping malls has extended shopping hours right? Worry not because in Divisoria, shopping nights await you at Tutuban Center night market.

Yes, when the mall closes but the shopping urge is still unsatisfied, you and your friends can now troop to the Tutuban Center Night Market. It is the Philippines’ answer to the world-renowned night markets of Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. I've been to different countries and nothing beats the unique "tawaran" system in Tutuban. This unique bargain shopping destination allows you to experience open-air shopping at its best, with the widest array of goods and supplies at the most reasonable prices. 


The Tutuban Center Night Market is a clean, organized and secured market area that brings together a collection of stalls that sells personal items, kitchen wares, garden accessories, handicrafts, sports gear and novelty knick-knacks—and just about anything you can think of.

It is the exciting place where, at the close of regular mall hours, street vendors take over the vehicular road network of the main cluster of the Tutuban complex to set up their stores and sell their goodies. From the early evening to midnight, the perimeter area of Tutuban Center metamorphoses into a dynamic market, with pockets of brightly-lit stalls with equally bright-eyed shoppers angling for the most awesome bargains.

Haggling and negotiating over prices is definitely the standard practice, and goods all come at cheaper and more affordable costs. And now that Christmas is around the corner, you can browse more than a thousand imaginative gift ideas. This is the market where “there’s something for everyone” rings true and real.


 
Gift suggestions are yours for the giving: for your office secret Santa to your special someone; for the sister who is into arts and the niece into crafts; for the brother who is a gadget geek and the nephew who’s a technophile; for the boss who is a cook and his wife’s who’s a foodie; for your Mom who’s a home buff and Dad who’s a garden aficionado.

While Christmas carols are on full blast, enjoy dining al fresco at the Food Street. Freshly cooked seafood and hot-off-the-grill offerings are yours for the partaking to drive away your hunger pangs. Hong Kong-style or homemade noodles will surely chase the cold Christmas chill away while street staples such as hotdogs, kikiam and fish balls are sure to satisfy your cravings.

It is now more exciting and more leisurely to stroll around the Tutuban Center Night Market, but the experience is still the same for shoppers who have loved the nightly bazaar for, such as the great bargains, amazing discounts, joyous atmosphere, and food and fun for the entire family and barkada.

With this kind of shopping experience, going to Tutuban Center Night Market is surely the way to go, where shopping is always the best—any time, any day.

SINGAPORE FOOD REPUBLIC: Introduces New Dishes


SINGAPORE FOOD REPUBLIC: Introduces New Dishes
I was invited to a dinner by HK Tan of the famous Nasi Lemak and Singapore Food Republic. It happened on a Friday, sadly, I had to commute because I am not allowed to bring a plus one. I was so famished and tired when I finally reached Singapore Food Republic in BGC. Enduring a three hour commute from our house is worth it, after I got to taste the Singapore Food Republic's version of Thai Mango Salad!  It was so delicious! I love this spicy dish! Gustong gusto ko ang kagat sa dila. Yum yum!
 Sizzling Japanese Tofu with Seafood. I love any dish with Tofu.
Aromatic Lemon Grass Seafood stick. So yummy dish! I like this!
Kong Pao chicken with cashew.
Braised Pork Knuckle in Superior Soy. According to HK Tan, this is based on Chairman Mao's Favorite recipe.
 Superior Pot with beefsteak.
Spicy Garlic fish fillet with cotton tofu.

I tried some of the dishes above and my favorite is the Thai Mango Salad. If you want something spicy then go to Singapore Food Republic by Nasi Lemak Fort Bonifacio. Hey, don't get me wrong, if you don't like spicy food, they also have other food offering like this yummy Seafood Fruit Salad Croquette. I love this! You can have this dish together with  your choice of one drink and a dessert for only Php 165/ net from 2 pm onwards. Isn't that a steal?


Here is a sample combination, composed of tea tarek, siomai and siopao all for Php 165.00

 

I was able to try the tea tarek, we were entertained on how they make this cool drink. Order one and see a performance like no other!
Singapore Food Republic also has a tasty dessert offerings like this muffin below. The good news is that this yummy muffin is included at their 2 pm until they close promo.

I think it is important to note that all of their ingredients are imported from Singapore so you'll know/taste that it's authentic. It was nice meeting you Chef Joanne! Thank you so much for the warm reception H.K. Tan, Kim and Ms. Cora!

Singapore Food Republic by Nasi Lemak Fort Bonifacio located at Unit 8 Commercenter, 4th Ave cor 31st St Fort Bonifacio, Taguig Philippines (02) 925-1988.

VIDEO: Regine Velasquez Loses Voice at her Silver Concert

Despite suffering from a viral infection, Asia's Songbird, Regine Velasquez pushes through with her  #Silverconcert at the Mall of Asia Arena last Friday, November 16, 2012, believing in the adage that the show must go on, straining her vocal chords despite her illness. Thus, she loses her voice and had to cut short the concert.

I feel sorry for Regine. I hope she recovers soon. Get well soon Regine!

It is a good thing that Regine Velasquez fans are so understanding. Regine was also helped out by Vice Ganda and John "Sweet" Lapus. Vice Ganda had an an impromptu act to help out Regine.  A TRUE REGINIAN! Please note that this comedy skit was never part of her Repertoire. Thanks Vice Ganda for helping the Asia's songbird and for those kind words.




Free concert repeat

Not one to shortchange her audience, Regine promised to all “Silver” concert ticketholders that she will mount a free concert for all of them at the same venue. Cool! Regine is really nice.

Regine Velasquez's Silver Concert Take 2: Tentative date is on December 8. @cacaimitra will announce the decision on Monday. This is FREE for all Silver Concert Ticket Holders.
Regine Velasquez marked her 25th year in show business via the aptly titled concert "Silver" at the SM MOA Arena yesterday night (November 16) but it rained on her parade.
