#PurePadala is Puregold’s new service for OFWs

Our dear OFWs are this country's unsung heroes, all right. Aside from pumping up the economy, just imagine the strength they have to endure to deal with personal issues. Of primary concern is the money they send to their families. How do OFWs make sure that their precious $$$ land in good hands and are spent for what it's really intended for? Thankfully, supermarket giant Puregold has introduced this unique remittance service called PurePadala. For example, if an OFW sends P10,000 to open a sari-sari store business back home, the recipient just has to show the ... Continue Reading...

Earth Kitchen at BHS Central, BGC

Earth Kitchen BGC

I've always wanted to check out Earth Kitchen in Katipunan but being from the South, the location was far from me. I was thrilled to learn that they've opened in bustling Bonifacio Global City, and got an invite to try their specialties no less. As a purveyor of farm-to-table cuisine, dining at Earth Kitchen is always for a good cause since they support the Got Heart Farms in Tarlac. There are other communities from Luzon to Mindanao where they source the ingredients. The emphasis is on healthy, organic produce that's free from GMOs, pesticides and other harmful ...

Up to 70% off at Robinsons Red Hot Sale 2015!

There is something to love about August because this is when mall-wide sales happen. And I was glad to kick off the month by joining the shopping madness in the Robinsons Red Hot Sale 2015 at the Galleria branch. Needless to say, I enjoyed it every step of the way! Office clothes were on top of the agenda. Am lucky that where I work, I can actually reimburse my expenses ( though I always exceed the limit). G2000 is one of my favorite places when looking for corporate chic and I was glad they offered lots of decent stuff at huge discounts. Just look at the sign ... Continue Reading...

@costacoffeeph in Robinsons Manila!

Manilans just can't have enough of their coffee! Just when you think there's all kinds of coffee chains around, the UK's No. 1 Costa Coffee has arrived to infuse their London-style way of enjoying our favorite beverage. I missed the opening of their maiden store in Eastwood City so I made sure I was there for the unveiling of the second branch in Robinsons Place Manila. Luckily, it's just a few minutes walk from our workplace. Lots of people lined up during opening day. There was a promo going on that awarded free coffee for one year for the first 10 customers ...

Our Royal Cliff Beach Hotel family holiday in Pattaya (part 2)

Can you imagine, we went to Thailand not being able to shop at all? I guess that's what you get for staying in a resort that's far from the madding crowd. But am not complaining. Especially as I saw my kids very happy and I got my much-needed relaxation with a capital R! :) We were assigned this Mini Suite Sea View Plus room which was approximately 40 sq.m. but more than enough for us. There was a king-size bed but Dionne, my older daughter, preferred to sleep on the couch. While the other rooms in the property had a mountain view, the best part was our ... Continue Reading...
