Althea Residences–a new residential site in Binan, Laguna launched by SOC Land


Laguna is one of the best site to settle down and live in a modern home. Many pinoys and expats are now living in a city with fresh air to breathe, less road congestion and being part of a new community that is developed and brought to you by top residential developers.

Take a look for example in Binan, Laguna, its not that far or near from Manila, the distance away from the metropolis is just right. Living in Binan, Laguna already have its own community that is well developed and also self sustainable.

A new residential site was opened in Binan, Laguna and this was developed by SOC Land, they call the new residential site as "Althea Residences". SOC Land is a 4 year old property developer company but their portfolio reveals that they are a property arm of holding company South China Resources which has stakes in oil and gas exploration, real estate, steel fabrication, banking and telecommunication. It is the same developer behind Anuva—a multi-building development located along the Sucat Interchange. SOC Land is affiliated with Puyat Steel Corporation, International Pipe Industries Corporation, and Puyat Flooring Products, makers of the industry-leading APO brand of construction materials.

Craving for sweets? Problem solved! The Cupcake Station by Ria will save your day. Join me as we explore the story behind these cutie cupcakes.

I know you want to know who is the person behind this cupcake. So let me introduce you, Miss Ria Manuel and her business partner, Miss Yeye Aguinaldo. When she was younger, she's always been a business-minded person. Food business has always been a part of her dream, to have her own restaurant. It all started with a baking challenge from a friend until it became her passion. She is also artistic that's why she ended up in choosing cupcakes. As you can see, each cupcake was well thought of in terms of its design and of course, the texture and taste. Starting a business was never easy. Tip here is, you don't have to buy everything at once. Just take it one step at a time until you reach enough savings then you can start investing on better equipments. Also, support from family and friends was essential too at that time because they will also serve as your natural market.

There's nothing wrong with simplicity, but they always strive to make each cupcake look very distinctive and unique. Satisfaction and consistency  will always be their priority and number one commandment. Her vision is to have her own cupcake shop, few bakers and employees, and of course, thousands of customers. This wouldn't be possible without her business partner, Yeye Aguinaldo. She bakes too and does the frosting. They are business partners since 2011. It's very rare to find somebody you wouldn't have conflicts with.

Let me quote you this wonderful message from Miss Ria. "One thing I can share from what I've experienced is never stop dreaming. When you want something, just believe in yourself and be passionate about it because everything else will follow. When you love what you do and knowing that you get to put smiles on other people's faces, you will never get tired of it doing everyday."

I know some of you guys are now craving. And I am lucky I have the chance to try their cupcakes. My personal favorite is Smores Oreo Truffle Stuffed cupcake with Oreo Buttercream Frosting. Since I am a cookies and cream lover, these smores oreo cupcakes are really driving me crazy. Its texture, moist, and sweetness are all balanced. You will never have that "umay" factor. It is perfect for gift, since they are so cute and adorable. It is best on events and parties too. Your guest will surely love these cupcakes.

Funko Hikari: Creatures of Light event– blog coverage


Its my first time to attend a toy show with a private auction event. The toys or figures from Funko went beyond the level of art paintings or sculptures. Why? because these limited edition Funko Hikari are one of a kind and each painted art in the figure are beautifully hand crafted and painted by an artist, the figure is numbered to one is to one OR one piece is available only in the world.

It’s a quite shock for me because I thought that vintage toys and other exclusive Transformers can reach the amount of PHP10,000,but here at the Funko Hikari event, each piece was auctioned off at a price of PHP 10,000 up to PHP 20,000 per figure.

Dancing Groot from Funko Pop! is here in the Philippines


The much awaited figure of Guardians of the Galaxy Groot is here in Funko Pop! form. I’ve search for this figure online and I never saw any more details about it and also photos are from promotional stocks from Funko, I learned that there are no electronic stuff that can make this Pop! figure to dance just like in the epilogue of the movie of Guardians of the Galaxy, then I forgot to read the label under the box and it says that this is a Bobble head figure haaha

1st Funko Pop! Roadshow Philippines - blog coverage

Me and my team at Toycon helped in organizing this toy event for Funko, its our first time to have a different toy show and not just mainly about toys, comics, or cosplay convention. This new event is very helpful in our end that we should try a different pop culture show for everyone.

Funko Pop! is a new toy figure that is making waves since last year. I’ve seen this toy figure from our Philippine Toycon event and I refuse to get one because they are so cute and I might start to collect a new line for my toy collection at home. But I gave up and got two figures from last year and now I got 4 more here at home hahahaha.
