Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience part 3

Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience 3
Aug 9 – Yesterday, I went to the new terminal again, it was holiday and I expect that there might be few commuters in there, but I saw that there’s a long line in every station. After my appointment in BGC again, I rode the taxi going to SM MOA, because I want to ride the shuttle there and try to avoid the new terminal bec. I don’t want to walk again inside the haunted mall.

It was traffic in Pasay Edsa, and I suspect that the Victory Liner there are causing the massive traffic that starts to build up all the way to Magallanes, so I told the taxi driver to just take me to the new terminal and instead of wasting our time in crawling traffic in Pasay EDSA.

Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience 2
Aug 8 – Last Thursday, I went to BGC for another event coverage and this time I dropped off at the new Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal in Coastal mall in Paranaque City. I have no choice but to take the new bus scheme. There’s some jeepneys that travels to Baclaran, but I’m not very comfortable in taking the jeep during day time.

my adventure starts here when I rode the bus coming from Cavite and all buses will stop at the end of the Coastal road.

Ramen!!! in Tokyo Tokyo restaurants

I just saw this in an Instagram post by earthlngorgeous and went0t   I discovered from their gram post that there's ramen already in Tokyo Tokyo, or maybe I just didn't noticed it in the past that they have ramen.

Not sure, but this one is new... they call it Tokyo Tokyo Ramen bar with 3 kinds of ramen --

Braised Pork, Spicy Chicken and Tempura Miso Ramen according to @wentot 
and then Earth said that each ramen is priced at Php150.

I hope its available here in SM Bacoor, because of this.. we will go there now to eat this ramen!
omg..if meron ramen dito,bibili na ko lagi

Trying out the new Provincial bus scheme in Coastal via Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal

I tried taking the bus yesterday on the way to BGC, I prayed for some good luck that I won't be stuck in traffic in Baclaran, you know that yesterday was Wednesday, it means its Baclaran church day - there's traffic infront of the church and also lots of private vehicles blocking the other side of the road, that prevents the bus and public transport to drop off the passengers there, so instead, they drop off the passengers along the highway - that gives big traffic for a bit of 20-30 minutes depends on the flow of vehicles in Baclaran-Roxas Blvd. Also one big problem that I tried to face is the new provincial bus scheme that was launched last Tuesday, all provincial bus coming from Cavite and Batangas will have their last stop only at the end of the Coastal road highway, this opened up a new terminal in Coastal mall, the new terminal is called - "Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal" (SITT).

FH13 41
Khaki in clothing fashion is common in men, because during our youngling years we already wearing them as our school uniforms, military training uniforms and jackets. But the Dockers fashion is also familiar because it’s the 1st clothing brand for men that is very memorable for me, my dad is a big fan of Dockers and I just learned how to appreciate the brand by following his steps in wearing their pants and polo shirts. Today, I just encountered Dockers again, and it’s a trip to memory lane for me when the male fashion models showed to us the different kinds of designs of Dockers for their new fall and holiday collection 2013.

I got a chance to taste Watami's ramen, you know that I'm not very satisfied during my 1st two visit here in Watami, but trying out a new food here in their Glorietta 1 branch, I finally found another love - which is the ramen!

Krispy Kreme opens new branch in SM City Bacoor

Oh check it out!! there's a KK branch in our neighborhood. I'm not surprised when I saw the big banner, but I got this tip few months ago from an insider that Krispy Kreme will open a new branch here in SM City Bacoor, they just occupied the old location of Dunkin Donuts. But don't worry, for all Dunkin Donuts fans, they moved to a new location and thats infront of National Bookstore, they got a nice set up too.

I'm not sure if this is the 1st ever reward card for Starbucks Coffee here in the Philippines, or it could be the only rewards card for Starbucks, but all of my questions will be answered later at the launching event tonight. Starbucks Coffee will launch their own reward card..

Amici restaurant’s line up of new food, pasta and pizza this 2013

Amici - new food this July 2013 - photos by Azrael Coladilla
Italian food are so many and its hard to read and even remember those cuisine, because its Italian, I just sometimes give them my own name for the food, or if ever I’m in an Italian restaurant, I just dig my memory the last food that I have tried before and will order it next. I heard of Amici back in the past with some of my friends who studied in Don Bosco, but then I got a chance to try it when I got invited to try it in one of their branch in QC and then a friend invited me to try it also in SM Megamall branch of Amici. The best of Amici is that it is an authentic Italian food with an awesome affordable price.

Wake up! its Popcorn Mondays events at iAcademy in Makati every Monday of August-September

Monday is a start of a busy weekday, you know that there are times that we wake up in the morning every Monday with a part of weekend hang over still left in us, sometimes we find ways just to give a little CPR to our creative juices, my technique is that I go out and meet new people, observe the action around me, walk alone around Manila, or just read a newspaper just to get new ideas and pump my brain in order for me to move on for my project.

I’m very happy with the turn out of my photo coverage from the Penshoppe Fan Conference 2013 with Mario Maurer and Baifern Pimchanok, the event was held at SM Mall of Asia Atrium event center, in front of the Penshoppe store. I ‘ve prepared for this few days ago and I make sure that this is in my schedule haha. It’s fun covering this event and I super miss the screaming fans and also hyper-ness of energy when Mario Maurer goes up on stage again, but for this year, for his 3rd or maybe 4th return here in Manila, Philippines, he came back with the beautiful Thai actress Baifern Pimchanok, she is also the co-star and leading of the 2010 Thai love story movie “A Little Thing called Love”.
