MAXXimum Thrill and Fun at Lazer Maxx Greenhills

I am not someone who loves to do things involving physical activities. I’m way too lazy, I know. But sometimes if it fosters camaraderie and give me some fun and enjoyment, I will always consider. A few weeks ago I was invited to join my foodie friends for a food crawl which begun with a lazer tag activity at Greenhills.




At first I was hesitant to join, I don’t want to tire myself early on knowing that I will have a full day ahead of me. But I was already there and I thought what the heck, let’s just get it done and over with so that we can move to the next destination. We geared up, teamed up and received our instructions from the personnel manning the place.

5 Reasons You Should Add NYC to Your Bucket List

One of the most popular tourist destinations is definitely NYC. If you’re one of those who simply don’t like cliché destinations, then you are probably avoiding visiting NYC for the time being. Be that as it may, New York City is definitely a place that’s worth seeing at least once in your lifetime. It doesn’t matter that millions of tourists a year visit this metropolis, or that it’s the setting of every major blockbuster or TV show. But these are not good enough reasons for you to visit the Big Apple, right? What if we gave you a couple more reasons to do so?




It’s rich in landmarks
Obviously, the first thing that you will do once you come to New York is see the landmarks. This is definitely one of the most important reasons to visit this metropolis as all of the landmarks are very well worth seeing. The first thing you should check out is the Statue of Liberty. Yes, this is also a cliché, but it just doesn’t do to go there and not see it. Also, if you want to be a bit more artistic and find a great place for your Instagram photographs, you should check out the Grand Central Station. Once you check these two off your bucket list, you might proceed to visit any other landmark you wish.

Caramia’s New Joyful Summer Treat: The Limited Edition Mango Cream Pie

When you think of tropical fruits,  what's the first thing that comes to your mind? Well for me, I easily think about one fruit: Mango! Mango is my favorite fruit of all, almost all variety of it! Ripe, unripe, name it I'd eat it (except the mango-apple variety with that acrid taste). Also, I'd eat anything with mango in it; that's how much I love it!




The Philippines is, and I’m proud to say this, probably the best place where anyone can get or eat mangoes. Our country produces the best ones and foreigners can attest to that. I even know a Hong Kong-based dessert place that source their mangoes from Zambales and Pangasinan. And hello, Cebu and Guimaras… other places like the former two where you can get those oh so delicious fruit.

Corregidor Travel Diary: Corregidor Inn and La Playa Restaurant

People close to me, knows I love history, especially anything relating about World War II or military stories. I have discovered this fondness for history and the world wars when I was little, I picked and read from our ancestral house’s library, one photo book that depicts World War II. From then on, I got more and more curious about anything about military and warfare; that I read and watched all things relating to it as much as I could. I was very fascinated that it got to a point where I wanted to be a military nurse while I was studying nursing in college. But my height didn’t cut it, so that plan was ditched.




The Philippines is a country that had a major role during that time in our history because of our relations with the United States and also our ardor for democracy. And there are so many places here that are filled with stories that are linked to World War II. Corregidor is one of them. Corregidor is an island that can be found at the entrance of Manila Bay in the Philippines. Due to its very strategic location, it served as a naval defense station since the Spanish Era. It is 48 kilometers away from Manila and is shaped like a tadpole.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere Viewing Party by Sky Cable, HBO Asia and Johnnie Walker

We’ve heard the Northerners say “winter is coming” for the last 7 seasons of Game of Thrones and now Winter has finally arrived in Westeros! After two years of waiting after the last episode of season 7, the premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones is at long last here! I know just like me, fans all over the world have waited for this day to come with both eagerness and dread in their hearts. As we all are excited to finally see this epic made-for-TV-movie come to fruition but also wishing it could have lasted longer than season 8.





The wait is over and the “watch has ended” for the fans of the Emmy-winning fantasy series "Game of Thrones" as the much-awaited premiere episode of the final season airs on April 15 (Monday) on HBO and its online streaming service HBO GO. I have been one of the lucky few to get invited to the Exclusive Viewing Party of GOT’s S08 E01 at the Johhny Walker House in Poblacion Makati that was put together by Sky Cable and Sky Broadband; HBO Asia and Johnnie Walker Philippines.

Sky Cable Brings HBO's Game Of Thrones-inspired “Fire Or Ice: A Musical Spectacle On Ice”

Ahhhh, Game of Thrones… it's been a fantastic 8 years, but you know what they say; all good things must come to an end. I’ve been following this epic TV series since 2011 and I’m having mixed emotions with the thought that it will be ending soon. I’m excited that the first episode of the last season is just a few days away, but I’m also sad that this is the last and final season. I wish it could run longer, but it’s all beyond our control.




I don’t think there will another TV series in the near future that will top up Game of Thrones when it comes to story, casting and most especially the computer effects and production. It’s out of this world if you ask me. George R. R. Martin said when everyone has left Westeros, he will still linger in that world. And I know for sure many of us fans will be the same. I will likely watch it again and again in the years to come, at least once a year or every other year just like what I did with Band of Brothers.
