Marriott Café All American All Good Food


Marriott Café All American All Good Food
Commemorate American Independence not only for a day but for the whole month of July.
Yes, folks, the Philippine premier American hotel Marriott Café will serve an extensive American buffet from July 9 to 31, Sundays to Thursdays. With the goal to satisfy the most demanding appetite, Marriott Café will serve an extensive American buffet dishes which will include rib eye steaks ( rejoice meat lovers ), pies and cakes that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Available for only P1,950 all in.
Last July 8, we were pampered by Marriott Hotel Manila with  "All American, All Good Food" such as Angus beef, Jambalaya Rice, luscious rib eye steak, shrimp gumbo with homemade sausage, Key Lime Pie, Dixie Pies, flavorful mini burgers, crispy nachos, cornbread, delectable cupcakes, free flowing Beringer wines and Jack Daniel’s whiskey and Southern rock music. The event was hosted by G. Toengi and attended by Executive Chef Meik Brammer, Guest Chef John Havens of Certified Angus Beef (CAB), Food and Beverage Director of Marriott Hotel Brendan Mahoney, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines, Philip Goldberg, and Marriott Hotel Manager Anna Vergara. 
The lovely Patricia Hizon and husband Vince Hizon were also present during the event. Sad to say, my dslr camera and LX7 camera were robbed the day after the event at the paid steel parking of Cash & Carry in Makati City. My God, the establishment doesn't even have a CCTV to deter those bad elements from breaking inside your parked cars.
Anyway, let's get back to what happened during the event at Marriot Hotel. I so love the Russian performers who graced the stage with their flawless dance number. 
And not only that, acrobats also entertained the crowd with heart pounding stunts. I actually captured it on my dslr but as you know it is now in the hands of those bad people.
"Out of the Box," a casual social event will also be held on July 11. Indulge yourselves with Robert Mondavi's crisp wines while being entertained by Chef John Havens’ live cooking demo of appetizers using U.S. Certified Angus Beef from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. 
On the next day, July 12, Chef John Havens will once again join the fun by sharing his love for American food by providing cooking class for only P2,000 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
And on the July 17, you will get the chance to be one of the selected few whom Chef John Havens will serve dinner to by placing a reservation on a dinner wine set for only P3,250 net.
Celebrate 4th of July at Marriott Hotel Manila.  #AllAmericanAllGoodatMarriott

Thank you Dennison Uy for the invite and for lending me your photos.

WARNING: Never Park Your Car at Cash & Carry Makati


WARNING: Never Park Your Car at Cash & Carry Makati
If you want your valuables to be gone in sixty seconds then park your car at Cash & Carry in Makati.

Earlier today we parked our car at the steel parking area of Cash & Carry. Complacent that since it is a paid parking, there will be several cctv's and security guards that will guard and monitor our car while we eat lunch and purchase our groceries.

We are very wrong because the moment we stepped out of our car, my equipment a Canon 550 D with a 32 gb micro sd card, my lipsticks and make up and my samsung cp together with my gc's had gone into thin air just like that.

We learned from the guard on duty that he was the only one roving the parking area. Gross negligence was committed by the parking management by not providing cctv in the area. According to the management, they only have a cctv at the second level of the steel parking area. Kumikita sila ng milyones sa parking pero wala silang pang bili ng cctv???

I find that hard to believe. But then again, we experienced first hand how lax the security was in that part of Makati.

So VP Jejomar Binay ganyan po ba ang Makati? #MAKATI #GanitoKamiSaMakati #JejomarBinay #JunjunBinay #Police #Cash&Carry #Cash&CarryPugadNgSalisiGang

PHILTRANCO: Celebrating 100 Years Of Service To The Filipino People


PHILTRANCO: Celebrating 100 Years Of Service To The Filipino People

I was amazed by the fact that my favorite Philippine transport company Philtranco is celebrating its centennial year.

Believe it or not, at 100 years, it is the 3rd oldest bus company in the world! 

I was born in Bicol. And Philtranco is part of my growing up years simply because it is the transportation of choice of my family and of many other Bicolano families to and from Metro Manila.


Did you know that my family and I used to go to Manila either by:
  • airplane 
  • with our own car 
  • train
  • via Philtranco. 
My dad refuses to go to Manila via bus unless it is Philtranco. Are you wondering why? Well, it is simply because Philtranco is very reliable, fast and safe plus it has its own toilet. Years ago toilet stops on the way to Manila were dangerous because of hold-ups and sometimes passengers, after alighting to eat or to go to the restroom at stops during the trip, get dizzy and mistakenly hop on a different bus.

Congratulations to the 100 years of fast, safe and reliable transport of Filipino passenger, Philtranco! Continue the biyaheng masaya for another 100 years! Mabuhay!

MAYON VOLCANO: ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE (ATV) RIDE


MAYON VOLCANO: ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE (ATV) RIDE

What better way is there to capture your memories of the beautiful perfect cone of Mayon Volcano than to have your pictures taken with the majestic Mayon as the backdrop.

Better still, you can explore the scenic places at the foot of Mount Mayon aboard the All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) that are available for rent from different ATV operators at Barangay Pawa in Legazpi City or at Cagsawa Ruins at Barangay Busay in Daraga, Albay.

Oh, these bunch of young at heart must be having the time of their lives while cruising through rough terrains on board the ATVs at the foot of Mount Mayon. You could almost feel their adrenaline rush as they skillfully maneuver the ATVs through narrow streams along the ATV trail.

PARTIALLY DISABLED PERSON: Reintegration to Society


PARTIALLY DISABLED PERSON: Reintegration to Society

A pleasant day to you! Rejoice you and your family is in perfect health. Not everyone is as lucky as you are.

I wonder if there is a program under Pnoy's administration for partially disabled person's reintegration to society?

Not a lot of people could feel and understand partially disabled person's desire to once again feel how it is to be a productive member of the society.

Evil hearted people abound making it hard(er) to be a member of the group once again. That's why most of the partially disabled person hope and pray for a more forgiving and understanding heart of every member of the society. 

Maybe you could not help them with their medical expenses nor pay for their expensive maintenance medicines and check up. 

That means that the least that you could do is to be gentle with them. Don't rub it off to their faces that they are limited in their ways. Be kind. Do not be cold hearted. Try to be on their shoes. Would you be as strong? These people had been through a lot so please don't add up to their pain. If it is still difficult for you to understand them, just let go. Go on with your life, don't make any foolish acts against them. After all. they're still human. And as human being you ought to act as one.

Giordano Philippines invites everyone to join World Without Strangers campaign


MANILA, MAY 26, 2014 – A world without strangers is an ideal world where people are not divided by race, class, religion or culture. It is a world where everyone welcomes each other as if they are friends or family. This is what Giordano Philippines stands for, and it longs to do so by developing apparel for everyone regardless of ethnicity, nationality or culture.
In celebration of its 25th anniversary in the country, Giordano Philippines invites everyone to join them in this quest for a World Without Strangers (WWS), beginning with the WWS photo booth which will run in selected malls all over the country from May 16 to June 1, 2014.

Catch the WWS photo booth at Trinoma (May 23), SM Megamall (May 24), Alabang Town Center (May 25), Ayala Cebu (May 30) and SM Davao (June 1). The first leg of the campaign took place at the SM Mall of Asia (May 16), Glorietta (May 17) and SM Pampanga (May 18).

The photo booth will be situated in the mall for a whole day. Those who want to participate in the campaign need to sign a form, giving their consent for Giordano Philippines to use to use their photos on social media and other Giordano marketing collaterals. And participants will get to bring home their own copy of the photo. 
“The Giordano brand and apparel have always appealed to anyone – from those who shop in Dubai’s glitzy malls to the laidback college kids in Sydney, Australia. Our timeless style and quality materials bring together people of different cultures and backgrounds,” said Beatrice Lim, Giordano Philippines’ VP for Marketing.

“Here in the Philippines people still come from different divides, and through this campaign we hope to break that. We want to show everyone that we can live in a world without strangers,” she said.

Trending now is Chito Miranda and Neri Naig's video.



Parokya ni Edgar's front man Chito Miranda won a lot of netizen's heart when he proposed to his long time girlfriend Neri Naig at a private resort.

Chito told Neri that a friend asked him to shoot a music video.  In the middle of the fake music video shoot, which supposedly starred Naig,  these words flashed on the screen: "Ako na ang pinakamaswerteng lalaki sa buong Cavite, a wide-eyed Neri Naig, visibly surprised look around then Miranda came out and fell to his knees, kissing Neri's hand while crying.  He then asked the actress to marry him.

The 38-year-old musician had the proposal documented and posted the video on his YouTube account late Wednesday.

Miranda and Naig became controversial last year after sex videos of them surfaced online. During a press conference last year, Chito told members of the media of his plans to marry Neri Naig.


"Ako ever since planado ko na 'yon talaga," Miranda said. "Siyempre when you are in a relationship, you always want to think na this would be it. So yeah, there's a plan.


I am so happy for the both of you. Hindi nila kayo natinag!
