Discounts Galore at the SM City Sta. Mesa 3-Day Sale

SM City Sta Mesa 3-Day Sale

I was present on the first day of the SM City Sta. Mesa 3-Day Sale which got me drooling with a lot of stuff on discounts. I really wanted to be at the mall early to avail the additional 10% discount for those shopping in the first 2 hours of the sale. I missed it unfortunately as I was caught in heavy traffic on my way. I arrived almost lunchtime, so I decided to eat. I was with fellow blogger Ted Claudio of WazzUp Philippines and we decided to have a quick lunch at Wendy’s. I was so excited to see that the Salad Bar is back and decided to take the challenge of building a salad tower of my own. We learned that the record to beat is 8-inches, which I failed to beat having stacked about 3-inches of salad on the plate. Well, what the heck. I still ...

Grab Your Free Coca-Cola Collectible Glass at SM Food Court

Grab Your Free Coca-Cola Collectible Glass at SM Food Court

Grab your free Coca-Cola collectible glass at SM Food Court. I just did. I was at SM Megamall last Thursday and was quite hungry. I wanted to have a pizza but because I’m alone, I find it uncomfortable entering into a pizza place all by myself. I thought about SM Food Court, with it’s unassuming open space, everyone is welcome, even if you’re dining alone. I found myself at the counter of Greenwich Pizza I ordered an All-Meat Overload Double Pizza Thin Crust and two regular Coke, having remembered a standee at the entrance of the food court about the free Coca-Cola collectible glass. The standee poster indicated that for a minimum P250 single receipt food purchase inclusive of (2) two Coca-Cola products, I can get a free glass. I’m not really a collector, but I love Coca-Cola merchandises and thought this would add to what I already have. After having ...

Sofitel Manila GM Clarifies Some Issues

Sofitel Manila General Manager Mr Adam Laker

It’s been several days already since UNTV Chairman and CEO Daniel Razon called for a campaign to boycott Sofitel Philippine Plaza. The boycott was allegedly because the hotel removed the station from the channel line up that hotel guests can choose from in their television entertainment system. In all honesty, I didn’t give much attention to the issue. There are obviously more pressing matters in the Philippines that needs attention than this. On top of that, I have been really busy that I can’t keep tab of the issue real-time. But when the opportunity came along to hear what the Sofitel Manila GM has to say about the issues with the TV network, I agreed to the meeting. UNTV is a local television network broadcasting on UHF Channel 37. The network brands itself as a public service channel and is apparently one of Sofitel Manila’s clients. We learned about this ...

Review: Enemy – A Movie that Got Me Curiouser and Curiouser

Enemy Movie (2014)

Adapted from Jose Saramago’s novel The Double, Enemy is a movie that got me curiouser and curiouser by the minute as I watch it during the premiere showing held Monday, July 28 at SM Megamall Cinema 6. With Jake  Gyllenhaal leading the cast, the movie is about Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal), a history professor who watched a movie as recommended by a colleague. After watching the movie, Adam realized he saw himself in it, or at least someone who looks exactly like him. His research led to a discovery of Anthony Clair, a bit player. The two met and their lives became chaotic, to say the least. I love how Denis Villeneuve made the film. As one scene plays out, a new comes along leaving me thinking of what just happened. And yet I’m also trying to decipher what’s going on in the screen. As I begin to understand, I’m suddenly ...

Tapeo The Fort Strip a la carte Offerings

Recently, I discovered Tapeo The Fort Strip a la carte offerings and more. I consider the restaurant as Bonifacio Global City’s hidden gem as the restaurant is not very visible. But they offer good food in a cozy Spanish ambiance that I love. Established by MonDay Chefs — chef-consultants Mon Urbano and Day Salonga, in February 2013, Tapeo is known for bite-sized appetizers that are usually paired with wine. I have to admit that the moment I got the invitation, I was thinking of pigging out on dishes revolving around our very own tapa, cured beef prepared in different ways. I was so wrong because I experienced Spanish dishes. I’m not complaining. In fact, I love it! I love the learning experience as I was educated that there actually is a tapas tradition in Spain which, according to the legend, can be traced back in the 13th century during the ...

Triple-O’s by White Spot in the Philippines

Triple-O's by White Spot - Monty Mushroom Burger Combo with Strawberry Milkshake and Sweet Potato Fries

Last week, I was one of the bloggers who had the chance to dine at Triple-O’s by White Spot at The Atrium of SM Megamall. It’s the first-ever branch in the Philippines and I was delighted to see that the restaurant is not even open, yet we were there to experience what this burger joint has to offer. Along with the media, it seemed like we were taking part of their dry run, as we lined up and ordered our foods at the counter. It was a fun experience, but the foods served to us are definitely not your dry run quality. Now, it can be told that popular Canadian burger chain Triple-O’s in the Philippines is now open to serve everyone craving for quality food. It was my first time to learn about Triple-O’s. If you’ve been to Canada, chances are you are familiar with this brand as it is said to be very popular in that country. It ...
