Cinco de Mayo Promo at Crimson Hotel


 Celebrating my belated birthday this 2017 at Crimson Hotel Filinvest City, Manila became even more special with the opening of Buen Provecho, a Mexican buffet promo just in time for Cinco de Mayo. From May 5 until May 14, the hotel’s main restaurant Cafe 8 will serve tacos, burritos, tequila and more for lunch and dinner.

Easter Party with the Angry Birds at Crimson Hotel


 Big and small kids of the south celebrated Easter 2017 with an Angry-Birds themed event at the Crimson Hotel Filinvest City, Manila Grand Ballroom. It was a two-day affair (Black Saturday and Easter Sunday), and I decided to bring my ten-year-old daughter Mira to her first-ever Easter kiddie party on day two a.k.a. Angry Birds Excellent Easter. Mira used to play Angry Birds every weekend, so seeing the Easter decorations and the Angry Birds mascot made her look back at how she loved the game so much.   There were so many things to do before the actual Easter Egg […]

The Titanic burger’s got: Half kilo […]

‘Be Like’ Michael Jordan


 Number 23 is my favorite digits, I was born on the 23rd day, and I idolized Michael Jordan who wore the No. 23 Chicago Bulls jersey; even before LeBron embraced that two-digit serial. Maybe, he wanted to be the next Michael Jordan. Maybe, LBJ wanted to Be Like Mike! But as we know it, LBJ couldn’t be. When he told the world (yes, because he was on International TV) that he is the best NBA player (a statement he made before the Cavs lost to the Golden State Warriors on Game 6), I felt ashamed of my NBA t-shirt collection – CAVS 23.
