This photo of the ticket of the FHM 100 Sexiest Women 2013 victory party is c/o Boyet, one of my blog reader who bought the pack of Rogin E and got this for FREE and then he tried bidding wars for the ticket and he won another ticket.. wow! congratulations Boyet.

There's no official list of winners but the third party agency who handles the bidding promo already contacted the winning bidders, they started contacting them since two days. I just learned from a rep. and contact from Bayer and also to a winning bidder.

Last night was about ‎#phquillawards2013 and some coffee

Last night is a fun night for me, even that I super rant about the traffic in EDSA, got hungry in the middle of my travel, and forced myself to go down the bus in Pasay and look for a quick snack. Those street food vendors are gave me a quick relief,  found a Php 5 sugar raised doughnut ( bought 2 pcs) and a Php 35 beef pares with rice... oh boy I'm so hungry and forgot to eat my merienda that day, leaving Cavite at 5pm and got stuck in traffic at around 6pm. The taxi crawls from Pasay to Rockwell for one hour... oh man

Enjoy food, drinks and a 360° view of Manila at Pan Pacific Manila

Pan Pacific Manila
If you are having a rough day and want to relax, like enjoying some good food, enjoy lots of drinks, meet new people, or just want to relax and have a little break after work hours, plus a freebie – a view of Manila in 360° on top of a nice hotel in Manila. Yup all of it are offered only here in Pan Pacific Manila, one of the top luxury hotel in Manila and also recently awarded by Trip Advisor with a Certificate of Excellence award.

Pan Pacific Manila
I haven’t been inside Pan Pacific Manila before, but I remember back 10 years ago, me and my band usually hang out in a cafĂ© below the hotel and we just chill out after a gig from another hotel nearby hahha. So when I drop by here to meet my blogger friends and the Pan Pacific marketing team, a little trip to memory lane occurred.

When I heard about the 360° view of Manila, I got a bit curious and got interested to check it out, also I heard good reviews about this hotel, so I need to check it out myself.

Pan Pacific Manila
We went up to the 21st floor and stop by at the Pacific Lounge and I learned that this is the location of the 360° view of Manila. There’s a swimming pool before 21st floor, you’ll spot it when you ride the transparent walled elevator. Its kinda cool to ride and watch the view there at night.

Pan Pacific Manila
Food and drinks welcomed us…awesome night to prepare for.

You can enjoy the weekened fest every night for only Php 900 per person, that's 6pm-9pm only. And there's also an affordable price at Php 650 per person during Sunday to Thursday.

Euroo power bank gadget

Euro Power Bank
My sister bought this Euroo Powerbank gadget and gave it to me as a birthday gift… thanks sis!!! more gadgets next year ha hahaha. Okay, I have already a power bank and it’s the Mi Pow brand, the only disappointing part for the Mi Pow is that when the cable plug broke down, there’s no other stock to replace it, you have to buy the same brand in order to get a new cable plug for your gadgets… its so stupid.. so I abandon Mi Pow and then my sis bought this Euroo Powerbank, that only have a USB plug, so that you can plug and charge any device with USB compatibility.

Php88 plastic coffee dripper cup of Saizen

Coffee drip from Saizen
I have lots of Starbucks coffee beans here at home, and I still have those 2 packs of their Christmas season edition, There are times that I quit drinking coffee at home, and sometimes I get stuck in using instant mix, sometimes Salabat coffee and there are times that I use that low acidic coffee instants.
But I’m back again in drinking drip brewed coffee. But I’m lazy to use the coffee machine and grinder.

When I visited Saizen store, I saw this plastic cup coffee dripper. It’s just Php 88, so cheap and affordable, I just got the idea to get one and try to use it. The plastic cup is easy to clean and store it at home.

Another visit at Kung Fu Kitchen –birthday foodie part 3

Kung Fu Kitchen - birthday
My birthday blow out and celebration is just simple. Eat in a restaurant, especially eating in my newly fave resto like the Kung Fu Kitchen. Its our 2nd time to eat here in their new branch at the District and it’s a 2 day plan for us to eat here for my birthday and we went here even that the weather is bad, typhoon Gorio just landed near the area and we’re experiencing heavy rains and strong winds. But we’re glad that the rain stop and it was a bit of sunshine in the afternoon, it’s a signal for us to go out and enjoy the sun for a bit of hours.

JCO (jay see oh or jay ko? )– birthday foodie part 2

Starting my birthday weekend is fun! because I celebrated it with my family and for the first time I blew my birthday candle on top of a JCO doughnut hahahaha. I’m not a fan of JCO, because I only tried their doughnuts for 4 times only, because of the long lines infront of the store if you will buy a box of doughnuts for take out.

But I learned that you can get your doughnuts so fast if you dine in as a customer. There’s a limit per customer, but if you have a friend or a family member with you, All you can do is ask them to buy another half box for dine in hahahaha.

Tokyo Tokyo at home - birthday foodie part 1

tokyo tokyo nights at home
It’s a suggestion from my wife that she wants to eat Tokyo Tokyo for our dinner and because that there’s a typhoon that weekend, we are stuck at home and can’t even go out, just for safety, its better to stay home. But how can we eat our yummy Tokyo Tokyo at home? there’s no food delivery service here in Cavite?

hmm..the problem was solved when I got an instruction that I’ll go to the mall infront and buy the food for everyone.

I’m game!
