It will be a joyful Christmas for Seattle’s Best Coffee here in the Philippines as they launched 4 new coffee blends – Chocolate Cherry, Coffee Hazelnut, Cookies and Mint and Coffee Cream Pie. Each of these drinks projected a character as your new best friend this holiday season that tickles the coffee person’s taste buds to enjoy the “most wonderful time of the year”, whenever I heard that line, I think of sipping my favorite coffee in a morning or evening and transport myself to a peaceful and joyous time of my life.

But the Christmas theme for Seattle’s Best Coffee doesn’t end there in releasing new drinks or the 2012 leathery planner with lots of goodies inside like music CD, discount coupons, wifi access and cute sticker badges, the most highlighted for this year is the partnership with World Vision, the largest child sponsorship agency globally, here in the Philippines, World Vision helps and improve lives of more than 120,000 children and 16 million Filipinos in 33 provinces and 44 cities nationwide.

Jamba Juice now blending in Manila, Philippines (1st in South East Asia) (price guide here)

I first encountered Jamba Juice in Tina Fey's movie "Baby Mama", where she met a guy who owns this fruit smoothie bar near her place and when she tasted it, she mentioned that "it tastes like Jamba Juice" and when people started to taste that fruit smoothie bar's flavor everyone commented that it tastes like Jamba Juice, its a funny moment for that movie and after that fast forward to 4 months, I heard that Jamba Juice will launch here in Manila, Philippines and it will be the 1st branch here in South East Asia. The Max group did a great job in bringing Jamba Juice here in our land (they also brought Krispy Kreme!), and after I tasted it for the 1st time last night, I just wow myself and finally tried this drink that people are talking about.

And this date 11-11-11, Jamba Juice finally rises here in Manila and now blending in the new lifestyle area of Bonifacio High Street -South area, that's a new high street building after ROX. Yeah! BHS is now expanding and it will launch tonight at 6pm together with Jamba Juice!

I challenge our malls to have Augmented Reality!

Check out this cool National Geographic Augmented Reality activity in a mall!
really awesome!

We can have like..augmented reality about Philippine history or with animals.
Or I like to see an augmented reality in EDSA.

hmm...looks like that I need to self study doing augmented reality, my first augmented reality experience is that when I took home Lindsay Lohan here at home thanks to that webcam and Marco Ecko paper and then tried that Haoson's Pokemon game on a PSP.

Samsung MultiView MV800 digital camera now available for P14,000

PB047952 PB047954
PB047955 PB047956

I got amazed by another camera with 180 swivel panel by Samsung, and we featured that here in my blog last September 2011 - Samsung MultiView MV800 digital camera . I nearly purchase one camera online because I thought that the camera might be available on December, but then I'm glad that our Samsung Philippines did another great job in bringing this Samsung Multi View camera here in our land with a tag price of Php 14, 000. I just tried one unit from their product launch in Robot resto in Makati and I have seen some okay and not so okay points on the camera.
I just wished that they have a wide angle lens for this, taking self portrait is too close and infront of my nose...or maybe my nose is just bigger or my arms is shorter.

BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard - review and experience

PB088318 PB088319
CASHCASHPINOY - We Got A Deal_1320783076163 - Group Buying Site in the Philippines_1320782832420
Here’s my take, review and experience in using the all new and all different BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard, the card that can be loadable with money and used only in buying items online and pay bills like a credit card in all affiliated Master Card stores, all we need to do is key in the codes or swipe it! But for my case here is a little bit different, because I got this BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard few days ago and I tested it in purchasing stuff online via group buying sites. Online shopping habit was full blast because it is easy to purchase online and not worry about credit card hacking whenever I use it to pay and transact online.
