Knorr’s Sarap ng #LutongNanay Campaign

“What is your favourite mom-cooked meal?” This question was asked to me by a TV reporter a few minutes after I arrived at the Blue Leaf Pavillion for Knorr’s Sarap ng #LutongNanay campaign. As I gave my answer, ginisang munggo (sautéed mung beans), I realized that I missed my mother’s cooking. Suddenly, I craved for that thick mung bean soup with malunggay and ground pork! How I wished I could run fast to my family home and charm my mom in cooking me one. I will turn the question to you. What’s one meal that your mom cooks best for Read More …

Dove’s #WeAreBeautiful Campaign: A Beautiful Legacy

Are you beautiful? If I am going to ask you this question, will you be able to look at me in the eye and confidently answer in an affirmative? Last December 2013, Dove revealed that only 7% of Filipina women identify themselves as beautiful. This statistic was very alarming, so the brand responded to this figure by launching the #IAmBeautiful movement. For my Filipino readers, I am positive that you remember watching and seeing active promotions for this cause. Perhaps you even participated in their selfie campaign? After a few months, there seemed to be a paradigm shift on self-acceptance Read More …

In return, write-ups and reviews about the shared products and services will be made to make Read More …

Search for the Happiest Pinoy 2014

The Philippines has been known to have people who look on the brighter side of life despite natural calamities, poverty, corruption, and other challenges facing their way. Their optimism is really legendary that several international news/feature agencies have already featured their happy mind set. As a Filipino myself, I can attest to my fellowmen’s positive outlook in life. This trait is very common in the country in almost all social strata. I believe that Filipinos know what is really important in life, so they don’t get stressed on trivial things. Even when several houses have been flooded, many wear a Read More …

What’s New What’s Next for San Marino Tuna Flakes

It was an active and fun-filled day at Mercato, BGC last week as San Marino Tuna Flakes launched its newest endorser at the What’s New What’s Next Fair. It was a great event with action-packed games like wall climbing, rappelling, and Velcro wall. However, what caught my attention was the flying trapeze. I have previously done all the other recreational activities they offer, except for this one, and I just have this urge to tick this off from my bucket list. Before going to the activity area, we were first offered to taste San Marino Tuna Flakes with crackers. Made Read More …
