My Coverage Photos: Million People March in Ayala, Makati City

PA041379
Here’s my photo coverage of the Million People March in Ayala that was held yesterday in Makati City. I received a Facebook event invite about the scheduled 2nd leg of the Million People March, the last march was held in Luneta and now the 2nd is here in Makati City. I went here because I got a scheduled event coverage in Mandarin Hotel, and it was a great timing that I’ll be covering two events happening in one venue which is in Makati. My plan is to shoot a time lapsed of the whole event but I forgot to bring my tripod and then I decided to have a photo coverage of the people and the scene. I plan it well for that day and I’m glad everything went so smooth.

The purpose of the march is to voice out more concerns of our people and hoping that our President Aquino will listen to the wish of our people that they should take actions and clear out the pork barrel, PDAF and DAP dramas. The march and program was held right infront of the statue of Ninoy Aquino, father of our president. I felt lots of anger and depression coming from the people who joined this march, some of them are not rally regulars, they are the people who work so hard to get a better life and after the pork barrel scam drama, everyone felt that we got duped by our national officials for so many years by pocketing the country’s fund, that can be useful for the country’s growth, education and health upgrades and agriculture. I wonder who will ever listen to us, or who will ever take action, I just don’t know, but I hope they hear this shout “scrap pork now!!”. The organizers of this Million People March are confident that there will be more march in the future, they will not stop until someone listened from our government.

All chocolate in this post, from Chocolate Festival of Resorts World Manila

P9018114
It’s a delayed post, and I haven’t posted my photos yet about the Chocolate Festival press con event that was held in Resorts World Manila,and in this blog post are all about chocolates!!! Last September 2013, RWManila launches their Chocolate Festival, its not your ordinary choco festival event, because from their choco festival they offer high grade chocos being sold in all their stores, hotels and restaurants. For restos, they come up a special food with chocolates. I missed the main event in RWManila and haven’t check the choco offerings of RWManila.

ADP dance flashmob rocks Glorietta

P9018368
If you will launch something and you want it to have a big blast of announcement, try come up with a nice dance flashmob in one of the top shopping mall here in Manila, but make sure you will not dance alone, but will dance with style in a large group. Not all flashmob are effective when it comes to campaign or word of mouth, because the flashmob craze is just a common thing to do in this generation, but for ADP this is not a campaign, it’s a tradition for them to have a flashmob dance party, their company uploaded lots of ADP flashmob dance in Youtube and taken from different parts of the world. The ADP flashmob dance Manila has finally launched and it surprised many shoppers that day here in Glorietta 2 activity center.

Back in the game

PA021120
Yesterday's adventure back in Manila is very stressful, I finally got a chance to go out of our house and traveled to Manila to attend one event and one meeting, but the traffic is worse yesterday and EDSA is not very friendly to pass in a regular day. Also, going back home is the most stressful, I just played Plants vs. Zombies 2 inside the bus while going home.

I hope there will be no traffic later.

Not yet the end for the Gwiyomi mania in the Philippines

Hari - PR Photo 2
This is a delayed blog post.. sorry for I was so busy few months ago and I just missed a meet and greet with Korean artist “Hari”, she’s the original artist of the song “Gwiyomi” she also invented the hand and facial moves together with the song and it became a viral hit last summer, and according to my research the it all started last Feb 2013 and then it went viral after some Koreans started to upload their own version of Gwiyomi, which later was picked up by cute people here in the Philippines.. Btw “gwiyomi” is a Korean word means “cute people”

P9169681
I didn’t expected that we will be attending 2 events of KakaoTalk last Sept 16,2013 in Makati Shangri La Hotel, I’m not prepared for it and but when I heard that Sarah Geronimo will have a mini concert, I didn’t think twice to leave the venue after the presscon and I found myself standing at the front row of the stage waiting for Sarah G’s performance. hahaha. It’s been ages since the last time I saw Sarah G’s live performance on stage and this time, she’s smoking hot!!!

Everyday extraordinary at the new Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf 26th St. Bistro in Global City

4
If you want to experience something that is extraordinary and want to have it in a daily basis,then I suggest you should visit the all new…all different branch and bistro concept of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Global City located at the 26th Street. The new branch is called “CBTL 26th Bistro”. The new branch is no longer a cafĂ© or your regular coffee store, the new store gives a different take of a former coffee store to a full scale bistro or restaurant. It means, here in CBTL 26th Bistro, there are more coffee, tea and also food. We know that CBTL offers the best food for your breakfast, like my favorite Egg’s Benedict and Food for thought, the best is that they offer it as an all-day breakfast meal and I really like that, and my wish has been granted for more food at CBTL.

For your travel needs: Flight 001 Manila store launch in Shangri La Plaza East Wing

P8267295
Traveling will be more fun because the world's premiere travel store, Flight 001 (flight one) just launched their 3rd store here at the new East Wing of Shangri La Plaza mall, it is the biggest store of Flight 001 and they got lots of stocks of items that you need for your travel. I’m not familiar with the store when I heard about this Flight 001 and I thought that they are some kind of travel and luggage bags, but when I witness the grand opening of their new store, I saw Flight 001 is like a travelers haven, because they got the state of the art travel bags and items that can make your life easy whenever you go around the country or around the world.

here’s a short history of Flight 001 store

It will be October once again in the next few days and we’re not excited for the sem break and Halloween, but we are much excited for the Oktoberfest or shall we call it the beerfest month! Here in the Philippines, we celebrate this as early as September, but the official schedule is always in the last week of September up to the early weeks of October. The Oktoberfest is usually celebrated in Munich, Bavaria, Germany since 1810, and it’s a part of the Bavarian culture, but there’s no need to go to Germany just to experience an authentic Oktoberfest celebration, here in the Philippines, we have the celebration and party and marking for its 75th celebration here in Manila, yeah it started on 1906 and thanks to the German Club Manila for bringing the beer fest and friendly cheer here in Manila.

The big celebration will be on October 18-19, 2013, it’s a two day fest at Sofitel Philippine Plaza’s newly renovated Harbor Garden Tent. And for Sofitel, they are celebrating this authentic Bavarian Oktoberfest for its 4th year. For me, this will be my 2nd Oktoberfest, the last one I attended was with the German embassy, and it’s a hell of a party! super fun with lots of over flowing beer and a nice German sausage fest!

Plane tickets Manila-Palawan list in Sky Scanner

Untitled
I'm using this mobile app in my iPhone4s called "Sky Scanner" its an app that finds you the cheapest flights around the Philippines and also in other countries. I'ved used this for the first time during months ago in finding the most affordable plane ticket to Puerto Princesa, Palawan. It's very helpful and it can give you an idea how much you can spend for your vacation and trip.

Me and my blogger friends will be in Puerto Princesa, Palawan this October 2013, and we don't have yet booked a flight, so I'm posting here a list of departure and return flight of different airlines. This will help us decide which airlines we can purchase our ticket with the lowest offerings.
