I love, love, love Katy Perry! The first time I heard I Kissed a Girl, I was scandalized, but after her she released Thinking of You, I got so hooked. (Not to mention her Giambattista Valli shoes!) When Kath said that she’s inviting bloggers for the Philippine Premiere of Katy Perry’s Part of Me 3D at the Gateway Cineplex 10, I immediately signed up to watch this fabulous movie.

This photo was taken at a food court in Metro Manila while people were lining up for their orders. See the old lady in front of me? Even she was already pissed. :(
So if you want to avoid long line-ups, go to nTrust.com.
I do not know one person who loves waiting. Even Bob Marley created a song and said he doesn't wanna wait in vain. As the eldest in the family, I am always tasked to order for food, line up at the cashier and follow the sea of people that requires great customer service.

I was fond of buying comics when I was in Elementary. My Lola would always give me coins so I could buy the things that I want, while I spend for enjoyable reads. Whenever my budget fails, I resort to the newspapers that my Lolo bring home from work. As SOLO featured the work of Larry Alcala last 2010, and the Father of Filipino Cartoons, Tony Velasquez and Kenkoy last year, they are bringing back its Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series with Tonton Young's "Pupung", one of my most favorite reads while I was growing up.

|The very sassy Italianni's Gateway|
It’s been so long since I went to Italianni’s. I remember that when it comes to Italian food –may it be pasta or pizza, their branch in SM Mall of Asia would be my most recommended among the restaurants there. Luckily, last Thursday, I got to witness the re-opening of Italianni’s at Gateway Mall and tried their newest dishes, together with the new look and feel of the restaurant.

It was a busy Thursday, but that doesn't hinder me from going to the Smart Araneta Coliseum to watch the Nelly Furtado and Gym Class Heroes Live in Manila. Sadly, I have a previous event to attend to so I missed seeing the Gym Class Heroes in action. My friends who were there already was enjoying their performance. It must have been great to see them perform "The Fighter". So coming from the break, Nelly Furtado suddenly popped up while singing "Maneater" and so the crowd went wild.

Who doesn't love desserts? I don't know about you, but I do! Good thing I was with Rain and Alwin at the Mega Food Sale, so they brought me to Akiba Cafe after our hefty lunch at Sushi-Ya. I always go to SM Megamall for lunch, but why did I just discovered this today? I guess I was missing a lot, but now I know where to drag the girls for cakes and coffee.
|Turning Japanese at Sushi-Ya|
It's the MEGA FOOD SALE once again and it runs from August 17-19! If there's one thing I love to do, its trying out places to eat. And I cannot believe that there is a Japanese gem hidden downstairs SM Megamall Building B. No, its not Yamashita's treasure, but a restaurant which serves yummy Japanese treats and fits to your budget. Located at the Lower Ground Floor, SUSHI-YA is my first pit stop to this foodie adventure.

I have never been a fan of Matt Damon. I was crushing Ben Affleck more because he’s so manly and he looks much taller than Matt. I know, I’m weird that way :P So when I found out that Jeremy Renner was playing the new Bourne installment ,(and you just gotta love him as Hawkeye and from Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol!) plus the fact that it was shot here in the Philippines, (where I’ve been a victim by the huge traffic in Manila for two months) I already know that I HAVE TO watch this film. As I’ve said, I’ve never been a fan of Matt Damon, so The Bourne Legacy is the first Bourne series that I’ve watched, and boy, did it never disappointed me.

Chocolates make people happy. When in time of distress, these succulent goodies are my number one best friend because its my happy food. But in my case, I am very picky when it comes to the quality of the chocolates I eat. It has to be in excellent shape and taste so I can enjoy my happy fix. And that is where Delfi, a top chocolate confectionery brand comes in. Manufacturing only world class-quality chocolates, they are perfectly indulging to my cravings.
Being a Samsung follower for many years now, I am just so proud that they launch innovative and the create the best products. I have not seen a Samsung user ever complained that they received a poor customer or sales service. My Dad was even still raving when they exchanged his Corby Wi-Fi with a new unit when he accidentally stuck a memory card in its slot. My boss is happy with her Samsung Galaxy Tab and did not use any after phone/tablet after that. So kudos to the Samsung Electronics team for their Second Quarter Earning results for the year. May you continue to bring us great products that will amaze us even more.
I just had to blog about this. You see, I'm a huge Spice Girls fan. I remember asking my Kuya Arnel to buy me a cassette tape of their first album, Spice. I was so fond of Wanna Be and Stop that I danced to it whenever I hear the song. I even believed in stupid rumors like Scary Spice and Sporty Spice are not really girls but changed their preference. You know, shallow elementary stories.

Happy Sunday lovies! Since I am about to spend my day at home, I decided to work on my backlogs. And boy, do I have many that are still piled up. Good thing I tinkled my camera today and saw that the Belle De Jour Passion Series: Get Gorgeous, that I attended last June 30 at Purebeauty, Serendra, was left unnoticed. So here's what happened to that awesome afternoon.

I just love companies who care. This August 10, 2012, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. of Japan, the parent company of the four Honda companies in the Philippines, announced that it will donate ¥1M (about Php 500,000) to families affected by the recent floods that hit the country. Due to the calamity that struck many Filipinos, Honda wanted to give back to the 539,838 families or 2 million Filipinos affected by the heavy floods, which continues to remain a significant economic and political issue in the Philippines.
In addition, Honda Foundation, Inc., the working organization for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities of the Honda Group in the Philippines: Honda Philippines, Inc. (motorcycle manufacturer), Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (car manufacturer), Honda Parts Manufacturing Corp. (Honda parts supplier), and Honda Trading Philippines, will donate One Million Pesos to help provide aid and assistance to the families and communities devastated by the recent calamity, and also help in disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts.
I hope that other foreign companies would assist during times of distress. Bangon Pinoy! :)

Being born and raised in the Philippines is one of the things I am very proud of. My roots that are traced from Iloilo and Bulacan makes me honoured of the very diverse culture of our country. But what’s more gratifying about living in the 7,107 beautiful islands is its superb destinations and the exciting adventures in those places. San Miguel Beer, being the brand that caters to the many festivals that are happening in the country, came up with the www.smb7107celebrations.com.ph to further promote the splendour of the Philippines.

SM Sta. Mesa is PACKED! Packed with discounts, prizes and promos. Starting today, August 3, 4 and 5, a mall-wide sale with up to 70% off discount is in the works. Luckily for me, I witnessed the first day of the sale and made really good purchases.
“Sometimes, it’s not that bad to break the rules” – if there’s one thing I learned from Step Up Revolution, it would be to always follow what your heart says. The fourth installment of our most favorite dance movie premiered at Gateway Cineplex last July 31 and I was one of the lucky bloggers who saw it firsthand.

|Niscenssa's New Online Store|
Every time I drop by at Megamall, I often see Bela Padilla's posters at the Nisce Skin 'n Face branch. When I was invited to join their glam online store launch, I finally learned how she protects her skin - by using the products of Niscenssa Direct Sales which can be bought at their clinics. And as an alternative, you can now shop for their products online and hassle free.
