UNIQLO T-Shirts for Valentine's Day
     This Valentine’s weekend, show your love by gifting your special someone with UNIQLO UTs. Get two UNIQLO Pixar or Sesame UTs and get a free 135g Cadburry Chocolate for only P790. This offer is valid from February 12 – 14, 2016 only.

Takatack and PayMaya for the Best Valentine's Gift in Town

Friday, February 05, 2016

     With Valentine's Day just ten days away, Filipinos may still not be sure of what to get for or how to spend that red letter day with their loved ones. Luckily for them,Voyager Innovations and PayMaya Philippines, the digital innovations units of PLDT and Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), have the ultimate wingmen for them.

     Shopping discovery platform Takatack and digital payments mobile app PayMaya can help Filipinos ace the two most challenging parts of this special day - gifts and dates.
Takatack and PayMaya for the Best Valentine's Gift in Town
      Takatack has all the traditional gifts you may want to give your special someone, such as chocolates and sweets. And with over 400,000 products, the site should also be your go-to destination if you want to choose a more unique gift, such as a new camera for the budding photographer in your life or a baking set for your favorite chef.

      Rebecca Ricalde, Assistant Vice President for Digital Commerce at Voyager Innovations, believes that the wide range of products at Takatack makes it the best place to choose your Valentine’s Day gift.

     Once you find the right gift, you can have it delivered directly to your special someone for a one-of-a-kind, doorstep surprise, which Ricalde feels is a nice touch for the occasion.

     “Much of what makes Valentine’s Day exciting is anticipation. You look forward to February 14, knowing that you’ll be able to spend quality time with your special someone. Sending them a gift via Takatack communicates this excitement to them in a way that nothing else can. A gift says that you are thinking of them and are counting the hours until you can celebrate the holiday together,” she said.

     Takatack also feels that romance doesn’t need to be expensive. Beginning February 1st and ending on the day of Valentine’s itself on February 14th, Takatack will offer a selection of special gifts from partner merchants that come with a discount. As these have all been curated by Takatack, customers will find it easier to choose a great gift for their special someone. The categories in this curated selection include: For Him, For Her, and Love Wins.

     Takatack will also offer several other promos. From February 1 to 12, a coupon code will allow users to get 500 pesos off a minimum purchase of 2000 pesos, so long as the items are fulfilled by Takatack. From February 1 - 5 and again from February 8 to 14, a coupon code will be revealed at 2:14 each day and expire at 2:14 the next day that will give new users a one-time 15% off discount for items fulfilled by Takatack for a maximum discount of 2000 pesos.

     Once you’ve ordered the perfect gifts from Takatack, you still need to actually celebrate Valentine’s day on Sunday, February 14. Unfortunately, many of the one-of-a-kind experiences you would want to share with your special someone on that day may require a credit card, and fewer than 5% of Filipinos own one. What, then, is the hopeful lover supposed to do?

      For them, there is PayMaya. Launched late last year, PayMaya is a free digital payments mobile app that gives you a unique card number so that you can pay online without a credit card. 

      Getting PayMaya is easy, fast, and FREE. To get your online payment details, all you need to do is download the PayMaya app, which is available on both the App Store and Google Store, and sign up with your mobile number. You are then issued a Visa card number, its expiration date, and a security code. PayMaya functions like a prepaid card - you can load it up at any 7-Eleven, SM Business Center or Robinson’s Business Center and then shop online or sign up to subscriptions wherever VISA is accepted.

     In addition to serving as a free online payment app, PayMaya also offers a physical card that you can use to pay at brick-and-mortar stores wherever Visa is accepted. PayMaya is powered by VISA and is regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas to ensure all your transactions are secure.

     You could, for example, take your Valentine’s Day date to watch a concert that you booked on TicketWorld, before ending the evening at your home, ordering delivery from foodpanda and watching a romantic comedy on recent Philippine arrival, Netflix.

      Of course, you could splurge even further and choose to book seats on Philippine airlines and a stay at an exotic AirBNB in another city or country even, all courtesy of PayMaya. Now how’s that for a Valentine’s day to remember?

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Broadway+10th Anniversary Celebration

Friday, January 01, 2016

     Happy New Year, dearies! To those who are planning to spend their new year in Hong Kong, you may want to check this news from Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. Because they're celebrating their 10th anniversary, they have a lot of exciting and awesome news for you. The happiest place on earth- Hong Kong Disneyland is offering this until the end of January so plan and book your vacation now :)
     To celebrate the park’s 10th anniversary, Hong Kong Disneyland recently announced a series of exciting, spectacular line-ups for this important milestone. This sensational, all-park event features the largest-scale musical performed live by the greatest Disney characters and cast members, magical stage designs, extraordinary dance performances and many more heart-warming moments, and delivers Filipino families a truly “Happily Ever After” celebration this Christmas. In addition, the park has also invited media friends from the Philippines for an early Noche Buena to celebrate this special moment with cast members, who consider the world class entertainment stage at Hong Kong Disneyland as their home. 
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Broadway+10th Anniversary Celebration
Journey through a live magical book

     The much-awaited and large-scale production musical, "Mickey and the Wondrous Book," brings to life the greatest Disney stories of all time, where guests will be immersed in seven beloved Disney tales. With a mixture of modern and classic elements in the story, music, choreography, costume, and set design, the 28-minute new stage show opening at Disney’s Storybook Theater begins with Mickey Mouse and Goofy discovering that a wondrous book exists in a library.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Broadway+10th Anniversary Celebration
     “Mickey and the Wondrous Book,” performed by 70 local and international talents, features 23 original costume designs and 63 pieces of instruments culminating in the 10th anniversary theme song, “Happily Ever After.” After eight weeks of rehearsals, the entire crew of over 200 production team members from 10 different nationalities are committed in delivering a world-class performance and providing our guests a memorable experience,” said David Lightbody, Director, Entertainment & Costuming, Hong Kong Disneyland. “Our Filipino talents who are passionate in music and shows, are also playing important roles in this stage show and many of them joined us even before the Park was opened ten years ago,” added Lightbody.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Broadway+10th Anniversary Celebration
     "To be a part of the development of the music of "Mickey and the Wondrous Book" was quite a thrilling experience. The creative team worked closely with musical directors and arrangers from the U.S. and took all-time favorite Disney classics and gave them a contemporary twist for guests of all ages to enjoy. As Mickey Mouse travels from chapter to chapter, the music landscape changes too, from Bollywood to pop, Broadway style musical to hip hop and gospel to jazz. It's quite an exciting journey," said Rony Fortich, Musical Director of Hong Kong Disneyland, from the Philippines, who has been bringing magic to guests at Hong Kong Disneyland since 2005.

     “We are proud to have our talented Filipino cast members Gian Magdangal and Raki Vega singing the 10th anniversary theme song "Happily Ever After" in the park. We are also thrilled to have celebrity Janella Salvador singing the song, both in English and Tagalog for the Philippine market. The song and MV starring Janella will be on-air in the Philippines this December,” Fortich added.

Brilliant castle projection adds magic to fireworks show

     The exhilarating “Disney in the Stars” Fireworks is made even more breathtaking by sophisticated projection-mapping technology and every night Sleeping Beauty Castle is set aglow in the all-new moving light projection show. The Castle serves as a giant stage to present a new sterling cast of 49 beloved Disney friends, including 16 newly added characters from “Inside Out,” “Finding Nemo,” “Big Hero Six,” “Cars,” and the upcoming release, “Finding Dory.” The seamless choreography of stunning fireworks and Castle projection makes a perfect finale for a magical day at the park.

     The enchanting Fairy Tale Forest, unveiling at Fantasyland on December 17, recreates the miniature iconic scenes of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Cinderella,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Tangled.” The music-box scenes come to life when activated to re-enact well-loved scenes from the classic Disney Princess stories. Disney’s most famous and magical fairy, Tinker Bell, will be here in Pixie Hollow, awaiting to meet visitors and sprinkle some magical pixie dust.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Broadway+10th Anniversary Celebration
     “We have spent over two years to build Fairy Tale Forest from its conceptual design. It is an intricately designed maze set in a beautiful garden setting, presenting spectacles of five cherished princesses at every corner! This attraction is bound to give guests more opportunities in creating snapshots of these classic Disney fairytales,” said Kelly Willis, Director of Creative Development and Show Quality, Walt Disney Imagineering.

Christmas comes early with “Frozen” Christmas tree lighting

     This season, thanks to the two sisters, Queen Elsa and Princess Anna, Hong Kong Disneyland will glow and glimmer, in magical brilliance, like never before! Main Street, U.S.A. is majestically festive when Queen Elsa uses her magical power to light up the Christmas tree and the star on top, while both sides around it will show spectacular projections.

Paskong Kai Saya sa KidZania Manila

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

     Pasko! Pasko! Pasko na namang muli. Tanging araw na ating pinakamimithi. Pasko! Pasko! Pasko na namang muli. Ang pag-ibig naghahari! It's Christmas already dearies! The Filipino Christmas tradition fills the air. The nine chilly mornings that come with each simbang gabi, the delightful smell and taste of puto bumbong andbibingka treats, the joyous singing of carols, the light that the iconic parol brings, and the warmth of sharing each moment with family and friends over Noche Buena—these are some traditions that make up the unique qualities of a Filipino Christmas.

     This holiday season, KidZania Manila is rekindling the magical experience that only a Filipino Christmas can bring with Paskong Kai Saya sa KidZania Manila. Homegrown traditions come alive right at the heart of the play city, enchanting children, and their families and friends. 
Paskong Kai Saya sa KidZania Manila
KidZania Manila is celebrating Paskong Kai Saya with a 15-foot Christmas tree at the play city’s main square where famillies can have their pictures taken.
     Igniting the spirit of Paskong Kai Saya is a Christmas tree standing in the middle of the main square, accented with capiz ornaments, and topped with a classic Filipino parol. It also serves as a festive backdrop for group photos. Misters and misses can even spread the love and share their positive Christmas messages to others by completing the sentence “Ang Pasko ay Kai Saya dahil…” on the message board near the Christmas tree. To commemorate the moment, developed pictures can be purchased at the PikZ station after the session.

     Adding to the merry atmosphere is a vintage ice cream cart from Magnolia, manned by friendly Mamang Sorbetero. Even Zupervisors, all ready to guide Christmas activity participants, sport the traditional Filipino garb of red scarves and distinctly local straw hats.

Tips on How to Maximize Your Kid's Time at KidZania Manila

Saturday, November 21, 2015

     Kenzo really enjoyed his stay at KidZania months ago. If time permits, we will stay there the whole day. There are so many things to do in KidZania, your kid's precious play time will be well spent if you know how to maximize your time during your visit. It's the most visited play city in Manila today, I've heard that you need to book ahead to reserve a slot. I promised Kenzo that we will go back to KidZania with his cousins. But for now, here are the tips to make the most out of your child's KidZania Manila experience.

     Kids looking for an awesome experience that lets them learn while having fun can head to KidZania Manila—the only interactive play city where kids can explore, discover, and learn how the real world works. 

     Built to scale for children, KidZania Manila has more than 70 establishments and features over 100 role-playing activities that kids aged four to 14 years can enjoy. These fun and immersive career activities have been designed to be developmentally appropriate for their age group.

     The play city has a wide range of activities to choose from, you’ll find a handy guide below on how kids can maximize the fun and have the best learning experience at KidZania Manila

     Upon arrival at KidZania Manila, kids are given a boarding pass and check for 50 kidZos. Once inside the play city, they can head over to the Bank to encash their check into KidZos—the official currency in KidZania. Here’s a not-so-secret tip: they can conveniently open a bank account with a minimum deposit of 20 kidZos—just make sure to check the schedule for the opening of accounts at the Bank. After opening an account, kids get their own personalized ATM card that they can use in the ATMs all around the play city.

50 kidZos was given to Kenzo after we encashed the check upon our arrival at KidZania 
     Now, it’s time for them to choose where they want to go. Kids can check each establishment’s Census Plaque to help them determine which activity they can participate in. Reading these plaques is especially helpful because they indicate the age requirement and duration period of the activity, as well as how many visitors can join and whether the activity will require earning or spending kidZos.

     KidZania Manila also has an Employment Office which helps kids determine their preferred immersive activity. Here, visitors find out which jobs are best suited for them, giving them a better idea on which establishments to go to. 

     Once they decide which job to take, kids can easily find the establishment using an app on a mobile phone which they can rent at the ABS-CBN Mobile shop.

Earning kidZos

     Just like in the real world, kids can get a bachelor’s or master’s degree in various fields at the Centro Escolar University. They can sign up for any—or all!—of the four degrees at the University: Humanities and the Arts, Engineering and Architecture, Health Sciences, and Business Administration. This allows them to earn more or pay less kidZos in the professions related to the fields they have studied.

Kenzo wanted to join the activity in all the establishments but we wasn't not able to maximize our time since we arrived an hour later and it's Saturday. 
     Fans and frequent visitors can even become citiZens of KidZania Manila through the B-KidZanian loyalty program. They can apply for their very own PaZZport at the PaZZport Office and earn stamps every time they role-play a career. The more activities kids complete, the more benefits they'll earn and the more fun they'll have on their very next visit. 

Bring home the KidZania experience

     If kids want to bring home a souvenir or two, the National Store is the place to go to. With two locations—one near PikZ station and the other just by the exit—they will surely find toys and collectibles that capture the fun they had at KidZania Manila. The National Store accepts payments in Philippine pesos, a foreign currency in the play city.

     Another important stop for kids and their parents alike is the PikZ Station, where they can get photos of the misters and misses’ unforgettable and precious on-the-job moments at the play city. 

Z-U next time! 

     After a fun and eventful day of “work” and play, kids can make a beeline for the Immigration Office, located between the Mobile Shop and the National Store. This is where security bracelets are removed and guests make their exit.

Our last stop was the city tour bus. We enjoyed our tour before going home. Kenzo also bought something from his hard earned KidZos that day at the souvenir shop
     At KidZania Manila, kids can enjoy a fun learning experience that sparks their imagination, ignites their minds, nurtures creativity, and inspires real-world exploration. And with these tips, children can do even bigger things and make the most out of their role-playing experience. Bring your kids at KidZania, I swear that your trip will be oh so worth it! I'll make another blog post on Kenzo's experience at KidZania soon!:)

Jollibee Peach Mango Sundae: a new twist to my favorite Peach Mango Pie!

Sunday, November 15, 2015

     Why there's always room for dessert? For a sweet tooth like me, there's always plenty of room for desserts! Anything sweet will always have a special place in my tummy! Hahaha! One of my favorite desserts is peach mango pie from Jollibee. I can't count how many times I've eaten this simple but filling item from Jollibee. It's my default order when I don't know what to get when my son craves for Jollibee and I need to bring him there for his snack.

     Nothing is as comforting as the warm sweet filling of mangoes and peaches wrapped in the crispy crust of the Peach Mango Pie or the sweet creamy texture of the classic Vanilla Sundae – both Filipino favorites that have always been part of every langhap-sarap Jollibee experience.

     Since its introduction, the peach mango pie has always been the top choice for Filipinos when it comes to desserts. The Vanilla Sundae, also a favorite among Filipinos, especially kids, has been paired with hot chocolate fudge and strawberry syrup, among others. 

     This time, Jollibee has decided to mix these two well-loved desserts, bringing a whole new flavor for everyone to experience – the Jollibee Peach Mango Sundae. The creamy texture of vanilla sundae topped with bits and pieces of peaches and mangoes brings out flavors that are both nostalgic and fresh.

     The Peach Mango Sundae is the ultimate dessert for Filipinos who can’t have enough of their sweet tooth fix with the peach mango filling and Jollibee’s classic sundae. It is best enjoyed with your favorite Jollibee meal.

     At only P29 each for ala carte and P20 as mini sundae add-on for value meals, the Peach Mango Sundae is now available at your favorite Jollibee store nationwide.

'Mas Creamy Sarap Polvoron' from Red Ribbon

Monday, November 02, 2015

     One of my favorite Filipino desserts comes in a small plastic packaging filled with milky yummy goodness. I'm a fan of that powdered milk sweet dessert that no doubt everyone loves. Everyone has that one special food item that brings memories of home. Arguably for Filipinos, this is the classic Polvoron. Here's great news from Red Ribbon, one of the biggest bakeshops in the Philippines, introduces its Classic Polvoron—a delightful treat that bursts a melt-in-your-mouth sweetness and creaminess, leaving an aftertaste that’s sure to make Filipinos grab for more.

     According to Zinnia Rivera, general manager of Red Ribbon, the Classic Polvoron offers just the right amount of sweetness, with more “creamy sarap” goodness. “The creamy taste of Polvoron has an empowering taste that brings Filipinos back to their childhood years,” Rivera said. “Since adults enjoy the rich, creamy taste of Polvoron, they now share their all-time favorite treat to their children. With Red Ribbon’s Classic Polvoron in place, children and adults alike will find our creamy variant more irresistible.”

     The Red Ribbon Classic Polvoron comes in singles, pack of eights (8s) and box of 16s. The price ranges for each pack is P10, P73 and P143, respectively.

     Rivera added, “What’s best about our Classic Polvoron is its sweet, creamy taste that’s perfect for mothers who want the best sweet treat for their kids’ recess or for the ates and kuyas out there who are looking for that sweet ending after a scrumptious meal.” 

     Aside from the Classic Polvoron, Red Ribbon also boasts its other Polvoron flavors. This includes the Pinipig Polvoron, which bursts with the same creamy goodness complemented by crunchy pinipig bits; and the Peanut Polvoron, which contains flavorful real peanut bits mixed with powdered milk and lightly toasted flour and butter. For families who want to taste all three flavours, they can opt to purchase the Assorted Polvoron Pack.

     Rivera said, “We’re making it easier for Filipino families to enjoy all our Polvoron flavors in one pack at an affordable price.”

     “Red Ribbon’s Polvoron products are popular delicacies that never fail to delight Filipino families,” Rivera added. “For its part, Red Ribbon Bakeshop will continue to innovate its products by improving the taste and design. We will continue to make great-tasting confections that are guaranteed to delight families regardless of the occasion.” 

     Now on its 36th year, Red Ribbon continues to make each celebration—whether small or grand—even more special. To date, the popular bakeshop chain now has over 300 stores nationwide.
