Are you thinking about where to bring your colleagues for your annual team building? Do you want more activities where everyone can take part and enjoy because a team breakfast or team lunch is just too boring?

We dare you to take your team building to the next level at Tree Top Adventure!With a variety of twelve (12) motorized team building activities, one would surely be physically and mentally challenged. 
Tree Top Adventure offers not just the only motorized zip-line in the Philippines but also the 1st motorized team building facility in the Philippines. The team building activities were designed to engage values such as coordination and communication which can be exercised in groups. 
One motorized team building activity is the “Dragon Boat” in which the members must synchronize their strokes to finish the course faster.  One might also try the “Dance Revo” in which the members must complete a certain dance sequence in the shortest time possible. Take note, the group cannot move on to the next step until each member is correct with the sequence. One activity that would surely challenge a group’s teamwork is the “Team Lanyard” in which the members must join hands and cross the rope the shortest time possible. A group will have a hard time crossing if the members do not coordinate well with each other.
Apart from the Dragon Boat, Dance Revo and Team Lanyard, there are nine more motorized team building facilities that Tree Top offers. 

Want  to know more about this? Join us on March 21, 2015 at Tree Top Adventure Subic Branch located at JEST Area Upper Mau, Cubi Point Subic Bay Free Port Zone.

GLAMP on with the Lifestyle Network!

Last March 3, 2015, I attended the Press Launch of Lifestyle Network’s Glamping.
The event was hosted by Karen Pamintuan with several members of the press and some influential lifestyle bloggers as guests.

Curious about what Glamping is?
Glamping is glamour + camping, the latest phenomenon fit for any city dweller who longs for a country adventure. 

Do you wish to go on camping but too lazy to build your own tent or pack some essentials such as sleeping bag because it’s too bulky? Are you also impatient when it comes to making your own fire?
Well… GLAMPING is perfect for you!

Lifestyle Network partnered with Coleman, a long trusted US brand in outdoor recreational products. I’ve checked out one of their tents and I guarantee you that they offer you nothing but luxurious accommodation that will let you enjoy outdoors in comfort and in style.

MTRCB launches new infomercial

A new infomercial was launched last 23 February 2015 at 2:00 p.m. in celebration of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board’s 30th Anniversary.
The informercial was Directed by no other than Jose Javier “Joey” Reyes and conceptualized by Mr. Erlito “Lilit” Reyes. 
The infomercial features real-life partners, Ryan and Judy Ann Agoncillo in a typical morning situation at home where their child picks up a line from a show and asks her parents what it means. A great reminder that parents are primarily responsible with regard to the shows that they let their children watch.

The informercial aims to challenge not only parents but adults to be aware of the media content our children are exposed to. It also serves as a reminder that we should be mindful of  MTRCB’s classification ratings. 

Details of the infomercial were carefully discussed by Director Joey Reyes, Ryan and Judy Ann Agoncillo, Lilit Reyes and MTRCB Board Members Bibeth Orteza and Manet Dayrit, the latter being Co-Chairpersons of the Infomercial Committee.  

The launch was culminated by the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the TV Networks and theater operators to ensure showing of the infomercial and to continuously empower the general public towards discerning viewership and thus, among other objectives, inform parents as to the media and entertainment their children may see.  

The infomercial will be aired in all television networks and theaters nationwide starting 25 February 2015.

The VC Experience

As husband and wife, we always make sure that we find time for each other. Specially with the jobs that we have, a dinner, movie date or even an overnight stay at a hotel/motel could really mean a lot to us. We love spending our time just relaxing and not thinking about anything related to work. We have tried Victoria Court and was impressed with their customer service. So, when we got an invite to attend their event last Friday, we immediately confirmed our attendance.

The party started at around 5:00 after touring Victoria Court’s thematic rooms.

so romantic.

(Virtual exhibits’ price ranges from Php1,000 to Php5,000, depending on your choice of show. For more information, visit http://exhibits.themindmuseum.org.)

October 21 is National Coffee Day

I love coffee. So when I found out about Essential Brand’s National Coffee Day Celebration, I immediately signed up even if that would mean slashing at least a good 6 hour of my sleep before I go to work. I spend most of my summer vacations at our house in Silang,Cavite. Our property used to be a mini-coffee farm and some coffee trees remained untouched until late 1990’s when my parents decided to sell a piece of our property. I grew up picking coffee beans and playing on the trees’ branches like a wild monkey. Haha! Yeah, I had a very happy childhood and most of the time I feel sorry when summer vacation’s over because we live in a boring village in the Metro.
I know when it’s already 5:00 am or 3:00 PM because these are the times when I smell freshly brewed coffee at home. One of my childhood dreams is to put up a coffee shop when I grow up – and I am still holding on to it. Haha.

Okay, so enough of me.
Maybe you’re wondering when did National Coffee day started?
This occasion is originally conceived in order to promote Lipa in Batangas as the coffee granary of the Philippines. Recognizing the importance of coffee in the Philippines and in the daily lives of the Filipino people. Essential Brands Group South Each Asia decided to launch a simple celebration to highlight National Coffee Day 2014 and I was really happy to be part of it!

As new members of the Coffee Club, we were treated with overflowing coffee and some pastries. There was also a motivational talk given by Significantologist, Cornel Bongco.
All of these is to highlight and raise awareness on the role of the country as one of the coffee producers along the “coffee belt.”

Essential Brands Group South East Asia also announced the recognition of “I LUV Coffee Express” as one of the rising preferred coffee machines by some of the leading convenience stores as well as other businesses in the country.

EBG SEA is proud to announce its partnership with key business in the Philippines which will begin using I LUV Coffee Express machines this year. Ministop, The Frab Bar in Nueva Ecija, Sky Go Delta Airlines,7-Eleven, Polland Hopia and San Miguel Food Ave. will be among the many places where you can enjoy the exciting taste of I Luv Coffee and savor real coffee flavor produced by an innovative and world class machine.

The flagship brand of Essential Brands Group is I LUV Coffee Express. These premium coffee machines are designed to meet the needs of businesses that don’t fit the traditional cafe market such as convenience stores, service stations, retail outlets, pubs and clubs. I LUV Coffee Express machines
are sourced through exclusive agreements with suppliers in Europe, predominantly Italy through EBG Australia, and are made using the finest components available.

 “We are looking forward to an annual event celebrating National Coffee Day and hopefully
collaborating with more companies and people at the same time. This year we are partnering with
bloggers since we know that through them and social media we can relay that we are still part of the
world coffee production map,” says Gabriel Balancio, Business Lead for EBG SEA.

I LUV Coffee Express machines is seen to be deployed in more stores nationwide as a testament of the love of Filipinos for coffee and a service which is fast and convenient.
As we celebrate National Coffee Day, Essential Brands Group South East Asia is committed to preserve and promote the Filipino’s passion and love for coffee. It also has heart to help in empowering the awareness of our role in world’s coffee production.

I went to work last Tuesday happy, because I met new friends and I can proudly say that I was part of the first ever National Coffee Day held in Metro Manila.

Before I actually forget… remember my previous post about EBG’s contest where you can win a brand new coffee maker? The contest is extended until October 28 so, send in your entries!

Looking forward to a bigger National coffee day celebration!
