Cadbury 5Star

Cadbury 5Star 

I love chocolates! One of my favorites is Cadbury! It is not only milkier it also melts in my mouth and is simply chocolicious!!!

You can imagine my happiness when I was invited to take a part of its crunchy chewy taste test and partake at the activities held at Glorietta Mall in Makati City. Well, I guess it is obvious how I was smiling from ear to ear! Lol!

The event is open to the public. That is why a lot of "madlang people" arrive in droves wiping out all the samples and loot bags within minutes.

Everybody got Cadbury in its yellow and purple bag except me hu hu hu! I was late because I came from another coverage. But it is fine! I got to met kind people who also attended the event.

Cadbury, once again, brings chocolate fun and enjoyment to a different level. Last May 27, 2016,  it introduces its newest brand aptly called Cadbury 5Star, a fusion of chocolate, with chewy caramel and crunchy biscuits center filling--one bite and you’ll think you can do anything.

Together with the launching of its new chocolate bar, Mondelez Philippines, maker of Cadbury 5Star introduces the three young Ambassadors of the brand—actor, Alex Diaz, VJ Robi Domingo, and lifestyle blogger, Arisse de Santos—who exemplify the adventurous and go-getter young millennials of today.

Alex Diaz is a Scottish-Filipino who started out as a commercial model and a radio jock. Living in Canada for a couple years, he decided to come back to Manila to pursue a career in acting and hosting. From auditioning for a teen reality show to landing supporting roles in high-rating teleseryes, Alex has really come a long way. Despite his achievements, Alex wants to do more and would like to make a name in the entertainment industry. Alex believes in the hashtag #YouThinkYouCan!

Speaking of hosting, before being well-known in TV hosting; Robi Domingo was the first runner-up winner of the popular reality show, Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition in 2008. Graduating with a degree in BS Health Sciences, this talented young man was set to become a doctor. But things took a different turn as an influx of hosting offers came his way. Fronting various top rating shows, Robi is definitely now one of Philippine TV’s top rising hosts. From med student to TV host, Robi showed that when #YouThinkYouCan, you do!

From TV to internet, our third Ambassador is a young blogger and the writer behind “Love, A”. Arisse de Santos is a lifestyle blogger who considers her blog like her diary. Her style of writing makes her readers feel like they are being brought along her encounters and discoveries in the areas of beauty, fashion and travel. Outgoing and adventurous, Arisse enjoys meeting people from different walks of life. #YouThinkYouCan be like Arisse?

Mondelez Philippines Chocolates Brand Manager Arlene Amante expressed, “We see our Brand Ambassadors as energetic young millenials. They’re active, confident, and they live their lives to the fullest. Making them true ambassadors of the Cadbury 5Star spirit of #YouThinkYouCan.

“#YouThinkYouCan is a movement,” ends Amante. “A call to make the most of every moment, to be empowered to do what you love through Cadbury 5Star!”

Flores (6th from left, back), Assistant Brand Manager for Jolly Spaghetti Luis Berba and Corporate PR and Events Manager Dennis Reyes, gave Jodi and Thirdy a warm and jolly welcome to the Jollibee Family.

Jollibee recently welcomed Jodi and Thirdy as the newest brand ambassadors for Jolly Spaghetti during the media launch held at the Ortigas Roosevelt branch.Jodi and Thirdy, who stars in the latest TV commercial for for Jolly Spaghetti, shared their own personal experiences, from happy memories when she was a kid and to how she now enjoys the same bonding moments with Thirdy. The Jolly Spaghetti Sweet-Sarap Moments event also featured fun games for the media guests and their kids.

Batang Jollibee at heart

Jodi confesses to being a certified Batang Jollibee, even before she got into show business.Her mother worked hard to raise Jodi and her siblings,bur made sure to devote her Saturdays to quality time over her children's favorite Jollibee treats.

"Every Saturday, iti-treat niya kami sa Jollibee sa may Landmark food court," Jodi recalled. "Talagang masasabi ko na kinalakihan ko si Jollibee. At hinde lang yon, kasi bawat party, bawat celebration, talagang naging part siya ng family namin at ng pamilyang Pilipino."

Growing up, Jodi said she would often order Jolly Spaghetti and Jolly Hotdog, and it became staples in her bonding moments with her mon.Now that she's a mother herself, she wants to pass on the same joyful experience to Thirdy. The 10-year old loves the cheesy, meaty, and sweet-sarap flavors of Jolly Spaghetti.

"Wala akong nakilalang bata na gusto maasim na spaghetti. " the actress remarked candidly. "Especially Filipino children. I believe na nakuha ng Jolibee yung manamis-namis na timpla na hinahanap-hanap ng bawat batang Pilipino."

Mom first, actress second

Jodi remains simple even with her celebrity status and recent accolades for her stellar TV performances. Despite her busy schedule, she makes sure that spending quality time with Thirdy is her priority, just as her own mother did years ago.

The actress related that she and Thirdy can spend hours just talking about anything, especially over their favorite Jolly Spaghetti. They often order "C3," the Jolly Spaghetti and Chickenjoy combo, for delivery or drive-thru.

"Sa hapagkainan, that's where the bonding happens. Nakakatuwa si Thirdy when you spend time with him. He's a very opinionated child. Baka pwede siyang maging lawyer." Jodi proudly added.

Perfect Choice for Jolly Spaghetti

Jollibee likewise is equally happy and excited to welcome Jodi and Thirdy to the family. "Jodi and Thirdy are the perfect endorsers for Jolly Spaghetti." said Kent Mariano, Jollibee Assistant Vice President for Marketing. "Despite Jodi's celebrity status and hectic schedule she believes in making even the smallest of moments count when it comes to strengthening her bond with Thirdy and her family. Jodi's own story and personal experiences of bonding with her mom and now with her son is something that many Pinoy families can relate to. We at Jollibee have always proud to be part of such memorable moments."

The latest TVC features Jodi reminiscing her bonding moments as a kid with her mom, and fast forward to the present, Jodi letting Thirdy experience the same happy moment while enjoying their favorite Jolly Spaghetti.

I love how these girls remain humble in spite of their success in the music scene in the United Kingdom (UK) no less! A far cry from a Filipina who only got married to a foreigner in New Zealand who demean and call us Filipinos stupid and idiot. Ate, where did you come from? Hindi ka na pinoy because you live in a first world country? ( you keep on insisting that you live in a first world country) 

Well, you ought to watch this video ate so you'll get some pointers on how to remain humble in spite of a successful career in another country.

I asked Almira and Celina this question: How do you keep yourself humble?

I had an opportunity to interview UK-based girl group "4th Impact".  I am fortunate enough to talk to two of its members during their launch as Yumbassadors of Jollibee last May 20, 2016. 

Sisters Almira and Celina Cercado were more than happy to answer two of my questions. Members of the media were trying to outdo one another to get an interview with the girl group because they're in the Philippines for a limited period of time only.

LBC EXPRESS BAGAL TO THE 9TH POWER: Over Promises and Always Under Deliver

LBC EXPRESS BAGAL TO THE 9TH POWER: Over Promises and Always Under Deliver

Last month, I sent an LBC pouch to my relative in the province and it reached him after 3 (three) working days!

Last week, I expressed doubt when G used the said courier again to send a very important document needed by the same relative at the same address with the same cellphone number.  Meaning its a repeat business and G was confident that it will reach the consignee in just 1 (one) day!

My fear has a valid basis.  After all, LBC Express over promises and always under deliver! Which should not be the case.  Remember, the last pouch I sent took LBC Express three(3) days to deliver! Though the one in charge at LBC Express office promised me that it will reach the consignee the following morning! Yes, that one (1) day became three (3) days the last time. 

And boy was I right! As of today, May 14, 2016, the said document is in oblivion.  It has not reach the consignee just yet.  G sent the document at LBC Express, Inc. at Suki Market, QC. last May 10, 2016 and was supposed to reach the consignee the following day May 11, 2016.

I made a  long distance call to the LBC Express office in that town.  A certain "Greg" who identified himself as an LBC personnel answered my call.  He further said that the said document could not be delivered because the LBC delivery man noted that the name of the consignee is unknown and the address was not complete. 

Shocks, how did my earlier LBC pouch reached my relative last month? Oh, I forgot to tell you, I also made several long distance calls and had to do several local calls through our landline and cellphone for that delivery to happen and I paid more than triple the price just so my relative could received it supposedly in just one (1) day!

To LBC Express please deliver the document or return the said document to us and refund us our payment plus pay for our long distance calls and time! #LBCBULOK #LBCEXPRESSSABAGAL #LBCBAGAL #LBCPagong

‪Aloha! Hawaii's so called best burger has been operating in the Philippines for almost two(2) years now!

But due to other priorities such as my medical treatment expenses and other priorities we were not able to try this joint way back in 2014. 

Good thing, somebody held an event at Teddy's that's why I got to taste the world famous Teddy's burgers that are hand crafted, flame broiled and dressed exactly the way you want it to be.

Like its rivals, Teddy's Burger also offer chicken wings and thighs. The chicken is very delicious!

Its fries has a lot of cheese and really yummy!

 The bigger the better?
