It's good to be back at SM City San Lazaro - and even on a 3-Day Sale! During my college days, this is one of the closest malls at my school so in between breaks, my friends and I would go there to shop or eat. And since its also near our house, my family often go to this mall to dine and basically buy groceries and stuff. And today is no exception to do so, because they have affordable deals that you can still get now!

The days unfold so fast and its the end of September in a few days already. And do you know what's best about the weekend? Its going places where you can find great sales and discounts. Lucky for us, Araneta Center got that covered, and the best part is, you can participate in so many activities they they have to offer.

Last week, we embarked on not one, but three food trips at the SM City Manila with the newest restaurants – SumoSam’s Tokyo Grill, Kung Fu Kitchen and Blackbeard’s Seafood Island. My Asian food trip that Sunday definitely tickled my Pinoy taste buds.
And now for more good news! You do know I love Samsung that much right? It’s nice to know that a company this big also has a big heart.

If some people find comfort in friends, some are friends with dogs. “Bwakaw”, Jun Lana’s Cinemalaya entry was shown to us by Star Cinema to tickle our heartstrings once again. It will make you laugh, it’ll definitely make you cry, but it imprints lasting lessons about life and waiting.
Cinemalaya 2012’s Best Actor Eddie Garcia plays Rene, a 75 year old gay man where his only best friend is a dog, Bwakaw. When Bwakaw was diagnosed with cancer, he realizes that there is more to life than just being alone and sad. And to finally see that he needs the people who cares for him.
Watching the movie, you will definitely feel that everyone will go through this stage. Growing old is inevitable, but its always important to have the people you love with you. It also wouldn't hurt if that someone who cares for you is the man's best friend. After all, its the connection that matters.
The movie Bwakaw is distributed by ABS-CBN's Star Cinema for everyone to enjoy in local theaters. Learn real life lessons with this inspiring movie.

When I was younger, I was only limited to fastfood choices. See, I wasn't adventurous in trying new dishes at all. But as I age, I discovered Asian and Italian foods that pretty much agreed to my taste buds. Now, my Chinese food craving has extended to something more upbeat when I went to Komrad: Mao's Hunan and Sichuan Kitchen.

I have always been proud of my Pinoy roots. And this September, I am more proud that one of my favorite clothing brands, Ensembles, released their 4th installment of its Young Designer Series featuring the collection of Chris Diaz. The past collections featured James Reyes, Debbie Co, Louis Claparols and Choc & Yvette Religioso. And today there’s no better way to show this beautiful line than to be modeled by one of the premier actresses in the country, Ms. Carmina Villarroel. Two such talented Pinoys in one collection is definitely a celebration of success.

In a world where almost everything is digital, even medicine brands seek the help of social media and viral videos to sell. While some commercials tend to be funny, (i.e. Lesofat's "tinatago ang taba?" campaign) there are commercials that goes way overboard in portraying pain. I often feel squeamish when I see blood, or anything that's being exaggerated when it comes to pain. So when I was browsing Ms. Janette's post about Dynamics of Medicine Promotion Online and Offline, I got more interested in the effects of social media to these brands - that should only help relieve pain, and not encourage it instead.

Dove celebrates REAL BEAUTY. But how do you really define beauty? Is it the amount of make-up you put into your face? Or is it more meaningful to be more natural? The Real Beauty campaign makes women realize that you do not need to have supermodel features to be called beautiful - that all you have to possess is a soft, smooth and glowing skin. And if you have that, then Dove is looking for you!

Manila, Manila, I keep coming back home to you. Did you know that SM City Manila was the first mall I've ever went into during college? This is where first date with an ex happened, watched my first movie alone here, and built friendships too. But when I worked in Ortigas, I refrained going there because I was nearer to another SM mall. So when I heard that SM City Manila is holding a 3-Day Sale this August 31, September 1 and 2, and I was invited to shop and dine, guess who's excited to come back to the mall that's filled with good memories? :)
When I was younger, my Mom made me see the cast of Mickey and friends at the Araneta Coliseum. As a kid, I am quite amazed that they all can ice skate and Pluto was even good at it. Good news to the kids and kids at heart, you can now see your favorite Princesses and their Heroes this December - on ICE!
Read on to this majestic invite from the Smart Araneta Coliseum:
Rejections are tough, that's why you need the people you love to be with you during trying times. In the case of Derek Lorenzo, he professed his feelings to the girl of his dreams through a song, only to get rejected by Anna Benaza. What's worse is, she replied with a video for everyone to see. That blows right? Even I got so worked up that I messaged Anna at her Youtube video and told her that she's not that "hot, hot, hot, hot, hot" with that kind of attitude. :( In case you haven't seen her reply, watch the video below and see for yourself.
