ZAP Crawl BGC Experience with ZapTagPH

I was personally invited to join ZAP’s first ever blogger event, the ZAP Crawl BGC. For those of you who are wondering what ZAP is, it is basically the mother of all the rewards cards. Being the Philippines’ first ever rewards smart sticker which enables users to enjoy 2-15% cash back points on every spending, ZAP successfully grows the number of its clienteles as it reaches more than 200 merchants around Bonifacio Global City (BGC, Taguig) and across the metro. Shopaholics, coffeeholics, bar-, spa-, gym- holics can all benefit from the 1 point = 1 peso reward whenever they tap their ZAPtag card or sticker in their smartphones at any ZAP network stores like Adidas, Converse, Puma, Digital Walker, The Spa, 360 Fitness, Barre 3, Skin, Happy Lemon, Slice, Draft Gastropub, Burgoo, Mesa, among others.

To have the feel of being a ZAPtag user, the ZAP team hosted the ZAP Crawl Experience where bloggers can try out some of ZAP’s affiliated establishments. We started at Sunshine Kitchen where I was greeted by the friendly team and welcomed by the energetic host of the day, Mr. Spike Acosta.

Together with Angelique Uy, ZAP’s marketing manager, Spike, introduced us to the world of Zap and how it works.

ZAP: How it Works

Sunshine Kitchen: Giving Sunny Smiles to Happy Tummies

I had the opportunity to meet and chat with other bloggers as we shared a very sumptuous lunch recommended by the owner itself.

I highly recommend this Truffled Four Cheese Pasta. I felt the heaven’s gates opening and the angels’ singing when I had my first taste of this mouth-watering goodness! Don’t ask how we many times shamelessly pleaded to have this dish refilled. 🙂

This Crabcake Benedict is a surprise!

Six-hour Slow Roast Porchetta – Best seller! If you are a carnivore like me, you will not let your Sunshine Kitchen visit pass without trying this. The meat is so tasty and tender, you won’t notice you have already finished half of the plate.

For dessert, we had Peach French Toast with Chocolate Caramel Sauce with Crème Anglaise. I know, the name is a mouthful, but I am sure you can’t help but fill your mouth with this sweet treat!

Tummies happy and filled, we started heading out to our next destination. Wait, we need a group photo first!

Urban Ashram Manila: The Yoga Experience

Basking under the sun’s rays while enjoying a comfortable chat with fellow bloggers and host, we walked a few blocks away from Sunshine Kitchen to our next destination. We felt like VIPs as ZAP team even had their “umbrella service” for us!

With few more springy steps, we headed to Urban Ashram Manila – a yoga hub in the heart of BGC. I was very excited to visit this merchant as I have been considering doing some yoga since last month.

As soon as we stepped inside Urban Ashram Manila, there was a sudden change in atmosphere. I felt relaxed which was a bit weird since we had walked our way there. It must be the serene and calm ambience. We were then greeted by the studio manager, Lexi Payumo. She toured us to see the studio’s facilities and answered our questions regarding their yoga lessons.

Next, we had an orientation on yoga presented by Ms. Lexi herself. In here, we learned about our bad posture and the easy ways on how we can correct it.

We did a lot of stretching as well!

Urban Ashram Manila is so generous to give all the bloggers present a seven-day unlimited pass. With all the complete use of the amenities, we can fully experience how to be a yogi and yogini for a week. Hooray! I am planning to use mine after the holidays. Wise idea, don’t you think?

Excited for my yoga lessons!

If you are interested to see me in my first yoga studio class, you can avail their current promo for a 15-day unlimited pass. If you live or work within BGC, you get a further discount so please join me!

Wink Laser and Wax Studio for Painless Beauty

Posture renewed, we had a short walk to our next stop, Wink Laser and Wax Studio. It wasn’t my first time to come here and if you are interested to read my first experience at Wink, you can click here.

We were welcomed by the owner, Holly Chang, and she explained to us how Wink is very much different to other laser and waxing salons sprouting like mushrooms in the metro. She emphasized on the studio’s philosophy of giving a hygienic and clean experience to its clients.

One fellow blogger, Jen, volunteered to try Wink’s eyebrow waxing since she wasn’t able to maintain hers for years. At first, she anticipated pain, but was surprised that the entire procedure was smooth and quick. Painless beauty makeover!

Wink is also very generous to give us vouchers for us to try their services. Sweet!

Slice of Heaven

The last leg of our ZAP Crawl BGC was in Slice, ZAP’s newest partner. We sampled some of their sweet and tasty cupcakes. I love the cute icing, color, and decoration and they all made my stomach growl after the long day.

After a very educational, filling, beautiful and healthy experience, I will summarize the everything that I learned today:

Why you must register to ZAP:

–       You can have the luxury of splurging at your favorite stores without feeling guilty of spending

–       ZAP network is continuously getting bigger across the metro so you don’t have to be confined in one or few shops

–       You only need one universal card instead of a collection of reward/loyalty cards

–       You can easily stick the ZAP Tag sticker to your phone without the hassle of downloading an application or even owning a smartphone.

–       Every time you spend, you will get 2%-15% Cashback points that will automatically be credited to your ZAP Tag account

–       The more you spend, the more points/peso you can earn back.

So what are you guys waiting for? Let’s start ZAPping! Here is a photo of me with a giant ZAP Tag. How I wish this has an automatically huge reward points, too!
