McDonald’s New and Improved Burger McDo

Saturday, June 04, 2016

     Have you tried the new and improved Burger McDo? I haven't but the hubby did. Well, his verdict is it's much better. For young people nowadays they always want their most precious things, including their tried and tested products, to evolve with them—to grow as their taste and preferences mature over time. When they look for change, they don’t want something new, but improved; not different, just better.

     Keeping up with the changing times, McDonald’s introduces the latest change in one of its all-time favorite products. Your beloved Burger McDo is now made with beefier and juicier patty, tastier and sweeter sauce, sandwiched in a soft bun. Like you, it has also changed and evolved over time.

Daryl Feril x Save My Bag Collection

Friday, June 03, 2016

      Hi dearies! I presume that you've already seen the collaborating works of Kiana Valenciano and Daryl Feril on my last posts. Now I'll give a short background on the award-winning illustrator Daryl Feril below and see up close the designs he made together with Kiana below :)

     Negros-based, award-winning illustrator Daryl Feril joins Kiana Valenciano in executing a special, bespoke collection of Save My Bag from Bergamo, Italy, for the Little White Box Pop-up Store in SM Megamall. The said collection calls for Feril to customize each bag with his unique illustrations, upon the client’s request, and under the guidance of Kiana as creative team captain.

     Feril, a Fine Arts graduate from La Consolacion College Bacolod, has worked previously with such top brands such as Alexandra Mor New York, Bloom Miami, Tory Burch, Lee Jeans, LVMH, among others. Not only that, he was also featured in the edgy Juxtapose Magazine published out of San Francisco. 

     Some of the prestigious awards he has received are: Silver Metal - Best Design - Editorial, Magazine Cover: aDoBo Design Awards 2015, Philippines; and 150 Emerging Talents in Art, Design, Illustration & Photography: ASIAN CREATIVES by Ubies, Tokyo. After a series of meetings, and subsequent creative discussions, Daryl was ready to interpret and execute Kiana’s vision for the collection: bespoke, with no two bags identical.

     “I really wanted to work on something local and Kiana couldn’t have been a better partner,” he says. Working with the bag’s material, hi-tech Poly-Lycra, which makes it lightweight and waterproof, was a challenge for Daryl. “What attracted me to Save My Bag? It’s the quality and its purpose. And of course the idea of painting something on the bag which I thought of doing before but didn't think that I could. It was my first time painting on fabric and it's a bit challenging but I'm glad it turned out well,” Daryl continues.
     And so, paint brush in hand, Daryl then worked on turning the bags into unique canvases, where he was able to express himself freely. “My idea is that, you can carry art through the different bags,” Daryl relates. “Each bag in the collection features different designs, thereby making them truly bespoke. But I also wanted the them to be close to my illustration style.”

     What then, exactly, is Daryl’s illustration and artistic style? “It’s a burst of floral, taking cues from nature which for me has some of the craziest patterns, colors and creatures,” he explains. “Inspirations evolve; sometimes they are based on what I observe around or through the people I meet. And as this is a collaborative effort, I took in inputs from Kiana too.”

The bespoke Save My Bag collection - Save My Bag is ultra lightweight, rain proof, and made from hi-tech Poly-Lycra.
     And a cursory look of Daryl’s unique bag creations for Save My Bag reveal all that and more—each one a window into his soul.

Matstone Testimonial Series: Gelene Legazpi, Mother and Cancer Survivor

Friday, May 06, 2016

     As a mom, it's my responsibility to ensure that my family is eating the right kind of food and getting all the nutrients that they need everyday. Health is wealth and it's always sick being sick. We all hate the feeling of getting sick or when one in the family is experience pains and discomforts.We all deal with various sicknesses in varying levels. Sometimes, it’s up to us on how we deal with our own sickness, just like in the case of Gelene Legaspi, a mother and a Stage-3 cancer survivor. 

     She chose to fight in order to live and for her to be able to form her own family. She did not give up and chose to find ways to cope with it. It’s a good thing she discovered the healthy wonders of juicing and a wonderful kitchen assistant called Matstone Multipurpose Slow Juicer. Do you want to know what she says about this juicer and what are the benefit of juicing in her family? Scroll down and watch the video below.
     I've tried juicing before for my father who's been diagnosed with diabetes before and during those times, it's either I use a blender to make a juice or use the so-called 'juicer' that doesn't fit the bill. Since my family wants to go back to juicing today, I'll recommend this brand and hoping to get hold one soon. 
Matstone Testimonial Series:  Gelene Legazpi, Mother and Cancer Survivor

Alden Richards in Cebuana Lhuillier TVCs

Tuesday, April 12, 2016



     I'm sure you'll be very surprised if the 'Pambansang Bae' appears in front of you. Are you going to faint, become speechless for a minute or two, or jump in excitement? Well, for me I think all the choices here. 

     I'm a Cebuana Lhuillier client and if this incident happens to me, well don't be surprised to see my reactions. Just recently, three loyal Cebuana Lhuillier remittance clients got the biggest surprise of their lives as the country’s leading microfinancial solutions provider released once again a set of heart-warming TV commercials, this time featuring its newest brand ambassador, ‘Pambansang Bae’ Alden Richards. If you haven't seen the TV commercial, scroll down and watch it below :)
Alden Richards in Cebuana Lhuillier TVCs
     Anchored on Cebuana Lhuillier’s new tagline, “Kaibigan, Ka-Cebuana”, the three TV commercials related the real-life stories of three Cebuana Lhuillier remittance client:

  • Suzette, a breadwinner who has not celebrated her birthday in 23 years.
  • Oliver, a father who has missed numerous Christmas celebrations to provide for his wife and child.
  • Florencia, a wife who never had a wedding nor a romantic marriage proposal.

     Richards, who was recently launched as the latest celebrity endorser of Cebuana Lhuillier, personally greeted and delivered the surprise to the unsuspecting clients while they were transacting inside a Cebuana Lhuillier branch. The emotional reunions of each client with their respective families were also captured as they were treated to a mini celebration of the occasion they missed while working away from their families.


The commercials end with the line, “Alagang binibigay mo, ibabalik namin sayo.”

     “We’ve always given each client’s money remittance more value than just a mere business transaction. This time, Cebuana Lhuillier would like to reward these unsung heroes with their much-deserved care and recognition,” Cebuana Lhuillier President and CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier said.

     With the official hashtag #AldenCebuanaTVC, the newest Cebuana Lhuillier commercials peaked at number 2 on the Twitter trending list during the day of its official launch last April 10. It gathered a total of 182,500 tweets. The three commercials have also been viewed more than 1.5 million times (as of press time) since it was uploaded on Facebook and YouTube.

     Truly, this kind of commercial is heartwarming and values the importance of hard earned money. I hope that Cebuana Lhuillier will inspire more Filipinos to instill in their hearts and mind that each peso is a product of long hours of hard work and incomparable sacrifices their clients give for their families. I'm a tear-jerker, cry baby, and while watching the TV commercial my tears fell.

Miss Universe 2015 and Jollibee 'Shares the Joy' with Pinoy Kids

Tuesday, April 05, 2016

     Our Queen Pia may be busy as a bee after reigning Miss Universe last year but she will always make time to visit the country to spread joy to kids and kids-at-heart. Pia once interviewed in Buzzfeed Philippines and revealed that she's a Jollibee fan and loves chickenjoy!

     While writing this article, my tummy rumbles after seeing the word chickenjoy. Sharing more of what happened during Pia's second trip home after the jump.
Miss Universe 2015 and Jollibee 'Shares the Joy' with Pinoy Kids
DREAMS OF A QUEEN. The orphans of Manila’s ERMA Foundation were all excited and asked questions about how Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach made her dreams come true. She gamely answered the questions of the kids and even gave pieces of advice.
Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach trip to the country’s number one fastfood chain highlights:

1. On her second trip home since winning the much-coveted crown, the Miss Universe did not only drop by Jollibee, she also helped spread joy to 20 kids from an orphanage who were invited to a special Jollibee lunch party.

SQUADGOALS. Jollibee and Friends joined Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach when she threw a kid’s party for Manila’s ERMA Foundation, a center for orphans. The kids spent the morning with dance numbers, surprise games, and sumptuous meals of Chickenjoy and sundaes, and special gifts from the Miss Universe herself.
2. The Jollibee Buendia-Bautista branch, on the border of the cities of Makati and Pasay, quickly turned into a playground for four- to eight-year-old kids who – like Pia and her entourage - were served with a filling meal of two-piece Chickenjoy, chocolate sundae, and Peach Mango Pie. They were also treated to a special dance number by the Jollibee and Friends mascots.

3. During the short program, Pia also imparted some life-lessons to the kids during the simple program. “Importante na lagi tayong maging magalang sa mga nakakatanda sa atin, mag-aaral ng mabuti, at parating magdasal, lalo na bago kumain (It is important that we are respectful to our elders, study well, and always pray, especially before meals),” said Pia, addressing the children.

JOLLIBAE. True blue childhood friends, Jollibee and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach were reunited yesterday for a children’s party for the orphans at Manila’s ERMA Foundation. Growing up, Pia has always been a fan of the fastfood brand and even celebrated one of her memorable birthdays as a kid with a Jollibee party.
4. A symbol of hope and perseverance for Filipinos, Pia joined the local Binibining Pilipinas three times before winning the crown to represent the Philippines in the Miss Universe pageant. Her victory ended a 63-year drought since the country last won the Miss Universe crown and brought jubilation among Filipinos here and abroad. As a special gift to the kids, Pia distributed Jollibee toys and gamely posed for photos with them.
