Spain is Coming to Invade Philippines Again #awesomeph

Image
Time has stood witness to the centuries-long bond between our country and Espana. They have colonized us long enough to instill some family values, cultural and faithful traditions that we hold so dear today. In the next few days, that bond would soon be rekindled but in a grander, more festive and flavorful way as we celebrate theMadrid Fusion Manila 2015. Check out the artsy upbeat TVC above.

About Madrid Fusion It is a yearly conference and trade show where the greatest chefs, entrepreneurs and tycoons in the industry come together and build the future of food in Madrid. We are lucky enough that Department of Tourism and SM brings it here for the locals to have a taste of the good life.

“SM is proud to be the venue of the historic Madrid Fusion Manila. We believe that one of the Philippines’ best-kept secrets is our rich culinary heritage,” said Steven Tan, SM Supermalls Senior VP.
I am personally inviting you to take your love for food to the next level this April 24-26, 2015, at …

Watch Why Manila Motorists Had a Great Morning #awesomebrand

Image
City life is something dreadful for the everyday motorist. Though there are beautiful reasons to smile and welcome the day, we can't help but linger about things to do at home, stressing about tasks to complete at work and, yes, frown upon the dragging traffic that makes mornings the worst part of the day for some. Then there comes a fastfood chain who made the most pleasant surprise in a PR stunt that brought joy in the most unexpected of ways.

Did You Know You Are Losing Four Days Every Month, Here’s Why

Image
Filipino motorists, apparently, spend over a thousand minutes each week on making decisions alone. At least that’s what a recent study reveals. 

We might not notice it but if we look at the bigger picture, we dedicate a large part of our lives unknowingly just to scratch our head stressing over life’s small unnecessary details.

A nationwide study by Shell publicized that Filipinos make over 30 conscious decisions each day that could have been dedicated to more important things like spending time with family, reaching organizational goals in your career, finding ways to expand your business, and laughing out loud with friends. As a firm that aims to make their customers’ lives easier, they are currently looking into ways in providing more value through introducing products that we can rely on.



With a lot of pressures about modern city living, our evolving needs have been the top priority of today’s top service and product providers.


We should be conscious even in our small actions from n…

Something to Hooray About

If not just the sunset, mornings are my most favorite part of the day.

Something about new beginnings and second chances, a promise to do something great, mornings just give us so many things to be anxious or smile about.

McDo brought together bloggers and media practitioners to do something together for the first time.

When I heard that I am invited to do yoga, I was like nah, that's going to be easy.

But little did I know that it is so strenuous, I could actually consider it a sport. My arms were literally shaking from the weight of my body and hamstrings ached as it was stretched doing the standing dog position. I just knew right then and there I had to do this every day. For someone who lives a monotonous lifestyle of endless officework with little to no movement for hours, this is a treat to your body as it tones your arms, loosens up joints, awakens your digestive system, improves blood circulation, and hardens your core.

That World-Class Science Museum in Manila

Image
When you are in the mood to be taken out of this world with all the awesomeness of Science, then head on to the most beautiful business district in Manila and visit The Mind Museum in Taguig

Sitting mightily on a 1.2 hectare lot in Bonifacio Global City, brace yourself with most visually stunning exhibits and interactive stations that educates, entertains and lets you grow appreciation to the world we live in.


It’s a great place to get lost in as every corner has been filled with facts and info that is sure to keep you overwhelmed with excitement. 

It is so well-built from the ground up that I would recommend it to all foreign guests and diplomats visiting the Philippines.



The story of our world is well told in pieces that is easy to understand and digest. Think of it like your elementary Science book coming alive.



The architects, designers, engineers, scientists, businessmen behind this visionary project deserve the highest recognition and my ultimate respect.

How This Pinoy Print Ad Can Teach Us About Moving On and Letting Go #awesomebrand

Image
Adding a touch of humor has positive impact on your brand provided the right timing and the right mix of elements. And since the Filipino culture thrives on comedy, it makes business sense to use it in delivering a message that promotes fidelity and fitness in the most unusual of ways.


GNC's Burn 60 product brandishes the slogan Fit Lives Longer in a series of print ads created by JWT in Manila, Philippines, that was plastered on national glossies. The telenovela feel of the ad makes it really familiar to the Filipino market and I just want to single out the character design and details where the illustrators and artists did such a fantastic job. Notice the attention to details such as lighting and shadows, how the canvas was divided to distribute focus and how tension was translated through the character emotions and color tones. The copy is catchy and the art direction, perfect. It has this Disney gone bad feel to it which makes it more laughable.

The situation itself is very muc…

Creative Pinoy Earth Hour Ads That Makes You Look Twice #awesomebrand

Image
Earth Hour has been a worldwide movement encouraging every one to turn off all lights for an hour as a symbol of our commitment to the planet. Every last Saturday of March and supported by all key global organizations in the world, reminds every one to place the environment on top of every business and personal decision.

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually not an exercise of energy reduction so they don't really measure how much is saved at that period but the lights off and candles on is more of symbolism and for awareness generation.

Thinking that we would lose electricity because of its scarcity would make us value it even more. Generating energy through traditional means has a lot of negative environmental impact that is why we've been taught as child to use it sparingly. It makes sense to consider renewable energy as mainstream source and investing in sustainable business practices is one sure way to keep the world running and save millions of lives along the way. …

Of Choosing Your Battles: Raw Sunday Reflections

Image
If there is one thing that should be taught to grade school formative years, I would give two. One is financial independence and the other is introductory courses about the Real World. There are so many things the world after childhood has not prepared me for, and looking back, it made me become a better and bigger person but unfortunately, a bruised one at best. 

You’ll learn so much living with kids than you’ll ever do with adults actually. Their point of views in life are simple, raw and the most ethical ways you can ever take. I had a conversation with my niece a few days ago and aside from the usual kulitan we dropped into a serious note that left me blown away, she sighed about how hard it is to find true friends. I was saddened by that fact but a part of me felt glad since she would be able to treasure true friends for a lifetime the moment she finds one at a very young age.



I am blessed to have friends who are as close to my heart as family. But sadly I had left all of them in…

Instagram Photo Stories of Tantalizing Taguig and Mesmerizing Makati

It's definitely a challenge for someone to move out into a great big world. It's frightening at first but once you get the hang of it, everyday just seems to be a wonderful experience. 

I've been known to be someone who definitely never settles down on his comfort zone for I will not achieve the things I did if I didn't become outgoing, driven and passionate in life, a lover of the world and everything that goes beyond this short existence. 

I think it only gave a few seconds of shock even to my closest of friends and family when they have known that I have relocated to the National Capital Region for good to pursue professional interests and went immediately to their daily lives as usual when the shock wore off. Not that they don't care at all, I guess, but I think there is nothing left for me to prove myself to them that they just trust everything I do no matter how unpopular my decision might be at times.

I've ranted how hard it is to live here in Manila in t…
