Chronicles of a Happy Married Life

Category: Events (page 3 of 6)

Hello, 2014!

Hello, loves!

2013 had been one of the most challenging year for us Filipinos, and yet we were still able to celebrate despite the disasters that hit our country. Thanks to all Filipinos who made us happy and proud. It was indeed the Philippines’ year for Beauty Pageants and boxing!

For us, as a couple it was a memorable year because it marked our first wedding anniversary. It was also the year where we were able to do the things that we really love. Highlights include Para Kay Mamu, a fund raising event where Migs had the opportunity to share his talents in performing (singing and playing guitar) in a series of bar tours. Second would be honing his talent as a stand-up comic every Wednesdays at Tomato Kick Katipunan as one of the funny guys of Comedy Manila (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxrPu57zhwk).
As for me, my dream of being part of the Red Cross Philippines finally came true. 

Last year also opened many doors for us, as bloggers. Vince Golangco of When in Manila helped us meet business owners who gave us opportunities to write for them. It was indeed a wonderful experience and we will always be thankful.

We both celebrated our New Year’s eve at work but we still got the chance to celebrate yesterday!

working on a holiday?! LOL!

Let’s all make 2014 OUR year by staying positive!

To all our readers,friends, family and colleagues, we love you and we look forward to sharing more wonderful years with you!

Much love,

Migs and Alaine

The Mind Museum: Uniquely Filipino

In celebration of Andres Bonifacio’s 150th year, The Mind Museum joined Bonifacio Global City’s Passionfest with “Science sa Plaza“. Mind Museum’s Cafe Scientific also had a presentation entitled “Why should Pinoys bother with Science?” with guest scientists,including those from Phivolcs, Pagasa and The Manila Observatory. Maria Isabel Garcia, Dr Gemma Narisma, Dr Gerry Bagtasa and Dr Renato Solidum discussed very timely and important issues – climate change, science culture in the Philippines, and a whole lot more! Glad they made this discussion open to the public!

The Mind Museum is a project of the non-profit Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. It is dedicated to providing an extraordinary educational experience that inspires the public understanding of science.
This 8,000 square meters museum boast about their uniquely Filipino concept. 

When I entered the museum, I felt that I was eight years old again! There were 250 interactive exhibits through five interconnected stories. 

Every exhibit were pretty fascinating. “The Majesty of the Universe” was my favorite!

I was also lucky to visit Da Vinci: The Genius‘ last day of exhibit.

It can get really busy at weekends, but even so I was still able to enjoy the exhibits. 
Cafe is also available inside the museum so you won’t have to worry about your growling stomach after hours of wandering. Their restrooms are clean too.

In line with the Christmas season, The Mind Museum is running a promotion! You can get the museum all-day passes for only Php450! 

You can also share the Mind Museum experience by sponsoring a child. Details here

Geek or not, every Filipino should visit The Mind Museum.

Happy Monday!

Blogapalooza 2013 at the SM Aura

Last Saturday was probably the longest yet a very fulfilling day. We both came from our shifts (Alaine attended a Red Cross training) and helped out with our respective company’s relief operations.

Due to lack of sleep and inability to drive back home, we decided to check-in a motorist hotel near SM Aura for the Blogapalooza.

We were welcomed with Blogapalooza staff’s sweet smiles. We were both excited to attend this Business to blogger event and we’re even part of the first 150 bloggers who signed up. We were  delighted to know that Blogapalooza tied-up with the Piggy Bank Movement and was able to raise Php82,000.00 for the typhoon victims!

Being Comedy Cartel fans, we enjoyed watching the hilarious guys and we’re even lucky to have a quick chat with Tim Tayag after the show! 

There were a lot of Bloggers who graced the event and the venue was raining with freebies and raffle items.

our side-trip to Uniqlo. LOL! we couldn’t resit their sweaters!

Aside from the Buffet and the over flowing coffee and cake from Figaro, these are just some of the items that we got:

Will post more about these cool items soon! 
We had so much fun despite our 3 hour sleep. Looking forward to a bigger Blogapalooza next year!

Much love,

Migs and Alaine

October Discoveries

We can already feel and smell Christmas!
But before we finally shop for our Christmas presents,allow us to share with you the things that we discovered this October.

Grace cookies!
Enjoy chewy and tasty cookies for only Php150/box!
Grace cookies come in two delightful flavors. Chewy oatmeal and raisin cookies and Chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! We must say, both flavors are to die for. Grace cookies are what we’ve been looking for. Freshly baked, delicious (not too sweet), healthy and affordable.
To place your orders, please call or text Leslie at 0915-210-4167.

Queen’s Menu
A lovely resto that serves lechon macau at 7:00 in the morning!
The environment is casual and the jazz music gave us the bistro vibe.
We ordered yang chow rice and lechon macau. The portion sizes were perfect and the price was reasonable!
Looking forward to our next visit!

Queen’s Menu is located at G/f MORE Business Center Bldg, Ortigas ave extension,Taytay, Philippines

We finally got to taste this sansrival from Chef Gene Gonzales of Café Ysabel! It’s just superb! Can’t believe that we finished the whole sansrival in one seating! We bought if from SM Hypermart for only Php140.00!

Ever seen a dancing wheel loader?
We were invited last week to attend the Foton’s Big Show 2013 at the World Trade Center and we were awed when we watched this monster dance!

Watch this video from Raffy Pedrajita.

How about you? We’d love to hear about your discoveries too!
