In order to have a safe travel around the long road, Petron Lakbay Alalay will be installing a lot of signage to remind all motorist to check their brakes, their engine oil, wear safety belts, go slow down or don't over take and take a rest to the nearest Petron station.

See you on Monday, Sheila Hammond


Its on the pages of blog sites containing news releases from Netflix announcing the arrival of Sheila Hammond here in Manila. Coming also is her husband Joel. I hope they are here just to share the rare zombie-ism condition of Sheila and how they live with harmony every day.

But hey, just relax, its only a series from Netflix -- Santa Clarita Diet, and its lead star played by Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as Sheila and Joel, are coming here in Manila to promote the 2nd season of the series.

I think I should watch all 10 episodes tonight just to appreciate the weirdness of this series and get excited before Monday!

Thanks GLOBE for the invite and see you all on Monday in Megamall, Netflix fans!

The Corner Market in Podium Mall is the first ever indoor farmer's market and food hall, they opened last February 2018 and they've sent these products to me to get an idea what The Corner Market can offer.

hmmm... fresh produce, products that are made by small vendors, new innovative food products, new food brands, all organic and healthy food items, fresh seafood, artisan ingredients, food for take home, food to taste and try and meet new friends who love the same food that I love.


The Corner Market is now open and you can visit them at the 2nd floor of the Podium Mall -- Im not sure what's the exact location, but check out the middle part of the mall or the corner --- ah yeah, thats why they call it the Corner Market haahaha.


The Corner Market sent these products, Im not familiar with these products, but my wife got excited when she saw some food items that can be used for her cooking.

Yeah, my wife Lace is our home chef and she loves to cook and use the healthiest ingredients that are present and available here in our home. (btw check out her lifestyle, financial, health and mommy blog )

Shopee treat us to a TOMB RAIDER movie screening ( PHP500 GC Shopee giveaway at end of this post)


Shopee invited us to watch a block screening of Tomb Raider in Greenbelt 3 cinema.

But Im glad that my blogger mates were able to transport me from BGC to Makati in the most convenient way, so I decided to watch the screening.

Grab Cafe pop up store in B3 Bonifacio High Street, BGC


Grab Cafe is the first of its kind of cafe that will accept only reward points earned via riding a Grab Car ride via Grab Philippines car hailing app. The cafe is a pop store that will only last til March 11, opened daily during mall hours. We are not yet sure if they will extend or transfer to another area, but I love this concept because we can now use the Grab reward points to purchase some coffee and Grab merchandise.

Too Busy in the City? honestbee expands services in and around Metro Manila

Let's #beehonest -- life in the office can get really busy, and there are always chores to do and errands to run. Even the simple task of grocery shopping takes up so much time these days, with the metro traffic and the hassles of parking or commuting. Spending hours in long lines whether at the store, the streets, or the parking lots take away more time that can be better spent on rest and relaxation or bonding with your family.
