coverage: Jollibee and Transformers Animated adventure theme party

P8070196
It's my dream since when I was a kid to have a Jollibee party, I was planning to organize one for my birthday last July 1 and then a week before the big date, I learned that they have now the Transformers Animated theme party package. I got excited and was busy inquiring on where I can have my Cybertronian party, but then my busy sched blocked my away in organizing, its okay and I'm glad that the Transformers theme party (the official) is here to stay and thanks to Jollibee for adding more exciting party for kids and ehem... adults.

I attended the Transformers theme party in their Roosevelt-Ortigas branch, I carried my son Ashton there with me and I was informed days before the party that there will be a Transformers contest for kids, and I heavily conceptualize a costume for Ash, but I decided to scrap a cute Bumble Bee costume for Ash, and I dont want to be busy stitching it over night. I just went there wearing a bootleg Transformers shirt Barricade design. Kids and adults enjoyed the day wearing their Autobots and Decepticon character party hats, the event is fun filled Transformers adventure party with games and they have this War for Cybertron Wii game and I played it for the first time, and omg! I'm going to buy this game soon! I

They got party games like Puzzle poster game and Shoot that bean bag in Megatron's chest. They also raffled off action figures and the Supreme Class Roll On Optimus Prime. I have one here at home when Lace bought it in HK few years ago and then we laugh when my sister won the raffle and her prize is that Supreme Class toy and a gift certificate for a party package. I just got the idea to use that party package in celebrating Ash's christening or maybe months anniversary.

I didn't know that it was a star studded event, saw the family of Gladys Reyes, and also super star bloggers Anton and Chuvaness, and fellow blogger mates, and fellow top bloggers (joke!), we enjoyed Jollibee meals eating a plateful of pasta, chicken bbq, cakes, sundae and twirl. They also showed to us the Transformers Animated birthday cake that was designed by Red Ribbon, I tasted the cake and its yummy and the icing is sweet. After the event, I took home some cool loot bags containing lots of Transformers goodies!

If you want to organize a party for your kids, then Visit your nearest Jollibee store or www.jollibeekidsparty.com or call 898-7777 for details.

coverage: Mom and kids meet up for the Bisolvon's Alagang Supermom kid photo contest

P8070127
I went to this event with my family and it was a last minute decision of my wife to come with me to attend the launching of Bisolvon's Alagang Supermom kid photo contest at Marta's Cake in Serendra, they have this photo contest online and invite all to share a photo of their kid's greatest achievement, the contest will start on August 8, 2010 to October 8, 2010. You can visit the contest website at www.alagangsupermom.com.ph and the prize is P50,000.

They do this online contest because Bisolvon believes in our supermoms for their non stop bonding, guidance and give learning to their kids. And the kids achievement will be recognized via the online contest. kaya join na kayo! I want to join the contest, but looks like the only achievement I can show is that Ashton can finish a 4 ounces of milk hehehe.

At the venue, they have an activity for moms and kids, and its a cup cake and cookie decorating activity, at first I thought it was a contest and I'm looking at the kid's cake design with icing and decided to try it myself with a cookie with a shape of a car and fire truck. It was hard to pour that icing and make a design heheh, I quit after it and decided to take some photos na lang of the event. I met our mommy blogger friends in the event and its fun that they help their kids in decorating those cup cakes, and I look around and realized that I'm the only daddy blogger in the event.

coverage: launching of SM Cyberzone in SM Fairview

P7168132
I first encounter SM Cyberzone in Megamall years ago, I visited this old shop and they fixed my 486DX desktop PC, and after that they expanded and got a total of 15 branches in different SM Malls nationwide. SM Cyberzone is not a store, but a hub or venue to house all kinds of electronic, mobile, and I.T. stores.

Last month, they opened their new branch in SM Fairview and they told me that the branch of SM Cyberzone in SM Fairview is much more different than the other branches, because they have different interior designs and the location of the stores and kiosk, maybe that they just learned how to create new and better concept stores to serve a more comfortable shopping and IT hang out for customers. SM Cyberzone is also serves as a hang out of tech people and those who need wifi internet, as the people of SM Cyberzone said that their branch in SM Fairview is much more modern and with technology-lifestyle design that can provide a unique shopping experience.

Play games and receive more free OREO

Few weeks ago, we posted and shared this news on how to get and claim your free OREO, we posted the details here at Share OREO mania starts now! get your free OREO here!

and now, we like to share more news and some ways to receive more free OREO and all you have to do is play a flash game at the official website, http://shareoreo.com/, and you have two kinds of flash games to play with during your free online hours, the game is so easy and fun to play, I even laugh here at home in looking at the crying kid in the "Bonding Puzzle game"and then there's this strategy and puzzle game that involves moving the position of boxes in the "Twist, Lick, Dunk" game.

to play the game for free, you have to register and then log in to your account,
after a successful game in every level, you will be awarded by a OREO pack that will be added in your account. Its up to you if you want to play more or stop the game and claim your OREO in the 7Eleven outlet you have chosen.

twist lick dunk
here's the game Twist, Lick and Dunk
you need to drag the Twist-Lick-Dunk boxes and place them in the "?" boxes, so that the falling OREO can land in your last box and hit space bar to drop the OREO in a glass of milk. After a successful run in this level, you will advance in a much more difficult puzzle. Each boxes has special moves if an OREO drops on it, like the Twist box that can bounce the OREO in mid air.

bonding
The Bonding Puzzle is the most enjoyable and fun part to play with. I laugh at every minute when I see that kid crying. The kid is hungry and your task is to feed him and get a chance to get the attention of his mom by dragging those objects located in the kitchen. The agenda here is that the mom and kid should sit on the table and eat their OREO. On level one, drag the milk to the kid, if he gets hungry, feed him with the loaf of bread and apple, the kid will sit on the table and will cry because he wants more, feed him some milk, if he doesn't like the milk, give the milk to the mom and she will drink a glass of it and prepare an additional glass, she will sit down and will ask for the OREO, drag the OREO to the kid and then they will have a great bonding time. If you do it right, you will advance on the next level and have more free OREO.
