Happy Chinese New Year 2014!! - here are some CNY display in Manila Hotel

P1245103
Happy Chinese New Year to all! I don’t have an awesome blog post to feature the CNY 2014 for this year, I’ve been busy and I forgot to include this in my content plan, bawi na lang ako next year hehehe. But I got some good photos of the set up of Manila Hotel for their Chinese New Year celebration. There was an event this morning, but I didn’t make it to attend and cover it, but I already sent my reporter and writer John Bautista to cover it for our blogs, I heard that the set up and program is spectacular.

Mega Fashion Hall: home of the global fashion brand is now open in SM Megamall–launch coverage and store photos

P1276368
January 28, 2014 is the official launch and opening of the new wing of SM Megamall, also dubbed as the Mega bldg D that sit next to Mega bldg B of SM Megamall. it’s a 86,000 square meter hedge shaped atrium that houses new global fashion stores, restaurants and IMAX Theater, Bowling center and also bringing back the 1st ever ice skating rink in SM Megamall, now with a Olympic size set up.

Wine, cold cuts, cheese and Le Cellier French Wine Selection @ Le Café Curiex in Makati

P1296648
We’re doing the French way of enjoying wine and cheese in one night here at Le Café Curiex in Makati City, it’s a French resto bar located near Makati Palace Hotel, we were there last night to try the cold cuts, cheese and wine degustation of the resto bar and their wine partner - Le Cellier French Wine Selection. Last year, we started our wine and French journey at the Soiree Beaujolais event in Manila Hotel and Sofitel Manila, and after two months, we are back again meeting up with our French friends and be part of another food and beverage adventure.

I didn’t expect that I will enjoy the wine night yesterday, I started to gulp 5 glasses of Le Cellier wine, and 3 shots of house rhum of Le Café Curiex, I over ate myself with lots of cold cuts and cheese, and I over estimate my enjoyment for eating and drinking too much…but I super enjoyed the cheese pairing it with my wine, I’m not a regular drinker but if ever I like the taste of the wine and my company, the taste of that wine will be become more great and tasty delicious. Now I get the idea that why people love to drink wine at home or in a restaurant, it will relax you and it will give a good atmosphere when you are with your comrades.

If you taste that the wine is good...that means you are in top shape and there's nothing wrong with you.

Preview look of SM Megamall’s Fashion hall

IMG_2964
I took this photo last December 2013, I was trapped inside the mall and don’t know where to exit at around 11pm, I was at our ToyCon event and I got confused because the two exit that I usually use is closed, and then I noticed that they already opened the new mall’s fashion hall located at Bldg B in SM Megamall. This is also dubbed as Mega Bldg D of SM Megamall aka Mega Fashion Hall.

Different global brands will be here, not just clothing, but also restaurants. Some new stores will be seen first Mega Fashion Hall.

Hennessy Artistry Manila Halo 2014–another year of global art of mixing music, party and drinks–tonight January 24 in SM Aura’s Samsung Hall

Hennessy Artistry Halo Key Visual
Its another year for Hennessy Artistry Manila Halo this 2014, when this event comes here in Manila, I can start feel that its already the new year, it’s the most awaited music party event because of its awesome unique concept of mixing different musicians and artist with different music backgrounds to jam one another in one big event. I attended their party event for the 1st time in 2010 and then my 2nd was last 2012, but my experience is the best during the 2012 Hennessy Artistry event in Newport Mall in Resorts World Manila, I went to the venue so late, but I noticed that the party just started at around 1am, everyone are still energized and the music DJ still give a lot of dose of club music that give massive boost to the party goers who loves to drink Hennessy.

Gourmet Farm and Dining Room - Tagaytay weekend date part 3 END

P1123426
Day 3 - For my last blog post of our Tagaytay weekend date blog series, its sad that it only got a 3 part blog post of our 3 day adventure part 3 in Tagaytay, but that’s okay, we will be back there again this week for more food, travel and attraction discoveries. I’m excited because we discovered another café and our itch for exploring Talisay, Batangas is very near. But first I want to post here my blog post and experience at Gourmet Farm and its Dining Room restaurant in Silang, Cavite. I’ve been here before, but the last time was that we drop by to buy some veggies and also bottled gourmet goods. I didn’t even know in the first place that they have a restaurant and also a free tour around the garden and farm of Gourmet Farm.

Picnic Grove again - Tagaytay weekend date part 2

P1113307
We went back to Picnic Grove in Tagaytay City, and we learned that last January 11, 2014, we got a record for the coldest day in Manila, Tagaytay and also in Baguio, it was so cold and super windy too in Tagaytay and here’s a photo of myself playing around using my shoal as a cape, I’m trying to imitate here a fat super hero hahaha.

Cliffhouse Tagaytay–Tagaytay weekend date part 1

P1103130
I’m having a hard time which photo cover should I use for this post, if its about the restaurant, the food or the view here in Cliffhouse Tagaytay. Its my first time here and I didn’t know that they have a new spot for resto, hotel and a nice view deck for all Tagaytay staycationers , I just heard about this new resto strip on top of a cliff from our travel and food blogger friends. We’re running out of places to visit in Tagaytay because we visit the city every weekend just to chillax and have a nice family weekend date. It’s a good month to visit this January because the cold season starts to get stronger til the end of February.

J. Alfonso de Dios challenges the status quo and changes paradigms for good

IMG
In a world that relies profoundly on fast and efficient transmission of information, the need to put brands’ commercial messages on air through a secure, cost-efficient and reliable process becomes more critical. Sadly, the communication technology and transmission infrastructure in the Philippines has not kept pace with the frenetic progress of communication and information exchange. As a case in point, we can look at the multi-billion peso Philippine advertising industry, where brands still dub digitally produced TV commercials into analog Betacam tapes and send these via messengers to TV stations for broadcast. This is obviously an archaic process that compromises the brand’s commercial message, is inefficient and not cost-effective.
