Uratex is Committed to Making Sleep Better

I toured the Uratex Plant sometime in 2012 and shared on my blog a glimpse of their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. After two years, I joined the plant tour once again. At the back of my mind, I was a bit hesitant for having made the decision of joining. Will I be learning something new this time around? To give you an idea, I can say that Uratex is committed to making sleep better. Uratex is quite popularly known for foams, particularly bed mattresses. As a matter of fact, I would even say that the brand is synonymous to this product alone. They do manufacture other products such as plastic wares and monobloc chairs. But because they’ve been making foams for several years already, they were able to venture into other products that uses foam such as pillows, sofa bed, and even sala sets. We went around the entire facility starting ...

Jamming with Bamboo is a #BeefedUpSarap Experience

Jamming with Bamboo

I attended “Rock On With An Icon,” an event that officially welcomed Rock Star and The Voice Philippines coach Bamboo Manalac to the Jollibee Family. Held at the Craft Pub and Grill at The Fort Strip last January 21st, it was an awesome experience watching him perform. Most of all, we had a chance to sing with him and I can say that jamming with Bamboo is a #BeefedUpSarap experience. And as an icing on the cake, I was part of the group that jammed and won the competition. I’m sure you’ve seen the newest television commercial of Jollibee for one of it’s dishes, the Garlic Pepper Beef featuring Bamboo in the lead. It’s one of my favorite dish to order, and because it’s only Php50, I can order it over and over again. For me, a beef dish makes dining special and I experience that whenever I’m at Jollibee, ...

Filipino Bloggers Network Christmas Party 2014

Group Shot - Filipino Bloggers Network Christmas Party 2014

I’ve been blogging for quite sometime now and have been to some organized bloggers group event. It’s a great opportunity to meet blogger friends and meet new ones. Last December 13th, I braved the traffic and the rain just to get to the Filipino Bloggers Network Christmas Party 2014 at the Aluform facilities at Jade Garden, San Juan City. FBN is one of the most active bloggers group in the country, and I’m glad I pushed to attend the event. The Christmas Party was filled with fun games, great food and more importantly, sharing of stories of the fellow online writers. Too bad I missed a lot of the activities. I got to the venue at around 4pm, two hours late. The Filipino Bloggers Network has almost 1400 blogger members at the moment and continue to expand as it provides a venue for bloggers in the Philippines to interact with other ...

The Sangobion Be a Lifesaver Event

When we think about Christmas, we think about gifts to give and receive to family, friends, colleagues and everyone in between. We’d go around shopping malls, and for the budget conscious, “tiangge” and Divisoria, in search for gift items to buy. But have you ever thought about giving for the greater good at no cost at all? Yes, we can donate to charity but it doesn’t have to cost you money when you donate blood. That’s exactly what happened during the launch of Sangobion Be a Lifesaver project last December 5th. The bloodletting event held at the activity center of SM City Fairview is the fourth and final phase of Sangobion Go Love Life campaign which advocates women to live a better life by making a lifestyle change that results in caring for one’s self. Sangobion is an organic iron supplement (ferrous gluconate), made even better because it has vitamins ...

Krem-Top Calls Out to Change for the Better

Krem-Top Change for Better Campaign

I was one of the bloggers invited to the Krem-Top event on the first week of December in Makati. It was a jam-packed gathering at the Romulo Cafe in Makati, but was an enjoyable one especially being in the company of some blogger friends. But before the event, I was thinking about what the event is all about. Maybe it’s a move to promote Alaska’s coffee creamer further and encourage consumers to switch to the brand. But I’m sure that’s already in their mind, but in actuality, Krem-Top calls out to change for the better in life as one nation. A very timely message as we conclude 2014 and get ready for 2015. The New Year is something that we all look forward to. An opportunity for a clean slate, to rid ourselves from the baggage of the previous year, move forward and be a better person, be a successful ...
