​Special Corporate Giveaways for your Christmas Party

Midea Home Appliances are perfect special gifts for your Christmas Party

One of the things that I miss when the yuletide season comes along is the Christmas Party at the office.  Haven’t had that since I started freelancing some 7 years ago. I get to attend parties as a blogger, but somehow I still miss office parties and gatherings. I guess having fun with the people I work with is different. Add to that the gifts that I receive, from my bosses, colleagues, office friends and of course, the corporate giveaways. Well, it’s that time of the year again and the streets are starting to twinkle with Christmas lights and decors. It’s getting colder as well, especially in the evening. I’m already seeing pictures of friends on social media all put together and partying. I’m sure they already received their Christmas bonuses and are looking forward to the holidays. I don’t know about the Christmas bonus and holidays, I won’t have ...

You can now keep food fresh and nutritious for up to 7 days with Electrolux NutriFresh Inverter Refrigerators. This is good news for those who don’t have the time to frequently go to the market or groceries.

Having fresh food from your ref means that the food is healthier and more flavorful. For ordinary refrigerators, veggies easily get soggy, especially the leafy ones.

Metalink Stone Tile Roofing installation demo

There’s no denying that rainy days are here again. And with that comes the realization to some that there’s a leak on the roof. Depending on how bad the situation is, homeowners would end up doing a quick fix or may decide to replace the roof altogether. If you’re planning to work on such project, here’s something I discovered recently – Metalink Stone Tile, the first  long span stone coated roof developed, manufactured and patented by Metalink Steel. Visiting a manufacturing facility is always a welcome experience for me. So when the opportunity to visit Metalink and learn more about their products, I immediately gave it a go.

Avida Towers Turf BGC

I’ve been to quite a few real estate developer’s showroom, but my recent visit to Avida Land showroom in BGC takes the cake. It’s the Philippines’ first interactive showroom and I really appreciate the experience.
