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.

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 […]

Coachella Feels With Wanderland

 

 Wish granted! Thanks to Globe Telecom, I had the opportunity to blog about a music festival. It’s not just a simple, small-time event…it’s an annual, major kind of thing. I love attending music-filled happenings (Coachella music fest is still on my bucket list), as I enjoy those moments of discovering fresh talent and watching legends play live. What I love about Wanderland 2017 is not just being given special access to feature it here on the JME blog, but the new location that is very close to (my) home. The Filinvest City grounds was so perfect for Wanderland! Moreover, I […]
