NTC EDSA Free WIFI - which area have the fastest internet ?


We've waiting for years to have a fast internet connection, some cities in the country are experimenting on how they can offer FREE internet to the public. In other countries its been happening already for years that they are serving FREE internet in public park and also in some tourist site. I've tested this when I was in HK and I just hope that we can have it too.

Partial Lunar Eclipse last night -- what happened? I overslept but here's a photo



I was planning to observe and take photos of the partial lunar eclipse last night, but then I guess my body wants me to take a rest and sleep all night. That's the result of sleeping for a few hours last Sunday. Been busy doing some content management and I didn't know that it was 3am already.

Since I overslept and also missed that quick earthquake, I dont have any photos or personal observation of the lunar event from last night and also about the earthquake, I think my body felt it, because I woke up at around 5am sleeping at the bottom of my bed.

Okay, no self produced content from me,  but I like to thank our sky observers for sharing their photos on Twitter.

Coffee culture in Festival Mall Alabang

Festival Mall in Alabang, Muntinlupa City is a destination not only for shopaholics looking for the hottest finds, but also for coffeeholics out to get their caffeine fix amid relaxing conversation with family and friends.

Festival Mall announces to the coffee nation in the South the opening  of three new branches of favorite coffee houses: Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, and Seattle's Best.

"We want Festival Mall to be not only a place to shop, but also to hang out with friends and relax, which for many of us, involves having coffee. With the opening of these new coffee shops, we can envision the mall as a vibrant hang-out spot," states Rose Nuqui, Vice-President for Marketing, Exhibits and Conventions, and Amusement Centers of Filinvest Alabang. "We look forward to the mall being the place-to-be to not only shop and dine but to really spend time, watch a show, and have a great time with friends or family over coffee."

At the newly opened expansion wing located in front of Asian Hospital and Medical Center is Starbucks. Already the third branch at the mall, the new Starbucks outlet serves up its coffee and tea-based drinks, meals, sandwiches, pastries, and juices in a spacious, airy environment and modern interiors of wood and glass. Coffee lovers can try out Starbuck's cult favorite Roasted Marshmallow S'mores Frappucino, vanilla-based and layered with marshmallow whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and a graham cracker crumble. Meanwhile, the Pop'Zel Coffee Frappucino is a taste of childhood with a coffee base and popcorn and pretzel syrup, and then topped with pretzel and popcorn bits. 

The new Starbucks outlet has also tailor-fit their menu for the busy yuppies working in the area. On offer is their Signature Pairings which feature scrumptious meals paired with a tall featured Iced Tea. Diners can choose amongst the Cold Soba with Chicken Pairing, the Chicken Cannelloni Pairing or the Spinach Lasagna pairing.

Also at the new expansion wing is CBTL, the first outlet in Festival Mall which serves up its famous drinks, including favorites such as the tea lattes, and their Original Ice Blended, sandwiches, salads, pastas, cakes, pastries and breakfast items. Favorites include the Moroccan Mint Tea Latte, the Ultimate Mocha Original Ice Blended drink with Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans, the Hot Double Chocolate with marshmallows, the Triple Decker Cheesecake, and the Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich. The space is airy and spacious, perfect for hanging up with friends or catching up with reading, either at school or that novel everyone is talking about.

Seattle's Best Coffee makes mallgoers at the  Water Gardens area stop and smell the coffee. Water Gardens is the newest dining cluster at Festival Mall. The second Seattle's Best at the mall, the cozy spot has an outdoor area amid lush greens and the sound of water from the cluster's gardens. SBC offers its limited edition Javakulas.

Coffee lovers can choose amongst refreshing Peanut Buttercup, indulgent Cookie Crunch, chocolaty Java Chip, and delectable Matcha Green Tea. Seattle's Best also offers its classic favorites such as its breakfast sets, pastas, salads, sandwiches, mochas, and teas.

Festival Mall  is a Filinvest Lifemall. It is the center of attraction within Filinvest City and is considered the heart of the city. The Filinvest Mall Group is also ensuring that its upcoming mall developments in other locations such as Il Corso in City de Mare, SRP Cebu, Main Square in Bacoor, Cavite, FORA in Tagaytay among others will constantly resonate the same value of a Filinvest Lifemall. And as its new branding and tagline goes, "It's where the City's heart beats". 

It is a premier development in Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City.  It is the only mall with five anchor stores: Shopwise Supercenter, SaveMore, Robinsons Department Store, Ace Hardware and Handyman.
