I enjoy watching movies at home but there are films that have to be seen on a massive screen. Recently, these movies include Frozen II, Aladdin, The Lion King, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. These films demand to be seen in a cinema, where you can better appreciate the details and immerse yourself in grand storytelling.
With the holiday season upon us, it often means spending time to finish work deadlines before the Christmas break, racing to complete our shopping for gifts, and enjoying Christmas parties with friends and family. It is also the perfect time to focus on gratitude and giving, to share our blessings, and to pay it forward to our fellow Filipinos.
I’ve been thinking about how powerful kindness is. Just today, I was listening to the podcast Kind World, and the episode “The Power of Niceness” shows how one simple act of kindness can have a profound effect on the person we’re helping.
In celebration of kindness this holiday season, PayMaya launches its PayMaya It Forward campaign to inspire Filipinos to “pay it forward” by doing random acts of kindness towards their fellow Filipinos, in the spirit of digital and financial inclusion.
When it comes to cheesecakes, one of the trusted names around the world is The Cheesecake Factory. Since the ’70s, the restaurant has been serving quality cakes, based on a recipe that Evelyn Overton developed in the ’40s. Today, The Cheesecake Factory operates 200 stores across the globe, earning fans from its original location in Los Angeles to Qatar.
Sadly, we don’t have a branch in Manila so those of us who want to enjoy its flavors have to fly out of the country for a little slice of cheesecake. That changes now, as you can get a selection of cakes from select branches of Tim Hortons!
One of the things I look forward to during Christmas is the flurry of seasonal treats from my favorite restaurants and coffee shops. This year, Tim Hortons partnered with Hershey’s to create a limited-edition drink and treat. I got to try it out recently and loved it!
One of the best things to do during a long weekend or the holiday break is to go out of town. There are plenty of places to visit but for lazy folks like me, a quick drive down south is enough to satisfy a weary soul. Of course, a drive down south won’t be complete without a stopover at any of the gas stations along the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) for a cup of coffee, some snacks, or even a full meal. The thing is, most people have the same idea so restaurants, fast food joints, and coffee shops can be packed.
The Force is strong with Filipino fans and the countdown to Star Wars Weekend has officially begun! In just less than IX days, Star Wars enthusiasts will be able to witness years of the epic Skywalker saga reach its riveting conclusion and the excitement has reached intergalactic highs.
What a year. As we close another year and decade, it’s nice to look back and see how awesome or kalat 2019 was. One of the best ways to recap the year is through Twitter, the micro-blogging platform that has witnessed all sorts of announcements, catfights, and special social media moments.
Twitter gathered all the data and they have presented a summary of the year that was. Were you a part of it?
I’m always impressed at how crafty my generation and the one after it is in different fields. This weekend, our former intern is hosting a Powerpoint party, where people can talk about literally anything under the sun as long as it’s done on the presentation platform. He’s just one of the many in my age group proving that millennials and Gen Z are doing more than just fine.
In terms of fashion, there are many who are flourishing in the field, whether as a designer, stylist, hair or makeup artist, or even as fashion journalists. To celebrate this glamorous industry, Globe Telecom’s lifestyle brand, 0917 Lifestyle, partnered with the country’s premier event agency, SAGA Events for StyleFestPH. The three-day fashion fest aims to help Filipino fashion design students, talents, and young content creators to showcase their creativity and craftsmanship and to promote the movement for Filipino fashion through various initiatives.
