Marriott Café All American All Good Food

Marriott Café All American All Good Food

Commemorate American Independence not only for a day but for the whole month of July.

Yes, folks, the Philippine premier American hotel Marriott Café will serve an extensive American buffet from July 9 to 31, Sundays to Thursdays. With the goal to satisfy the most demanding appetite, Marriott Café will serve an extensive American buffet dishes which will include rib eye steaks ( rejoice meat lovers ), pies and cakes that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Available for only P1,950 all in.

Last July 8, we were pampered by Marriott Hotel Manila with  “All American, All Good Food” such as Angus beef, Jambalaya Rice, luscious rib eye steak, shrimp gumbo with homemade sausage, Key Lime Pie, Dixie Pies, flavorful mini burgers, crispy nachos, cornbread, delectable cupcakes, free flowing Beringer wines and Jack Daniel’s whiskey and Southern rock music. The event was hosted by G. Toengi and attended by Executive Chef Meik Brammer, Guest Chef John Havens of Certified Angus Beef (CAB), Food and Beverage Director of Marriott Hotel Brendan Mahoney, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines, Philip Goldberg, and Marriott Hotel Manager Anna Vergara. 

The lovely Patricia Hizon and husband Vince Hizon were also present during the event. Sad to say, my dslr camera and LX7 camera were robbed the day after the event at the paid steel parking of Cash & Carry in Makati City. My God, the establishment doesn’t even have a CCTV to deter those bad elements from breaking inside your parked cars.

Anyway, let’s get back to what happened during the event at Marriot Hotel. I so love the Russian performers who graced the stage with their flawless dance number. 

And not only that, acrobats also entertained the crowd with heart pounding stunts. I actually captured it on my dslr but as you know it is now in the hands of those bad people.

“Out of the Box,” a casual social event will also be held on July 11. Indulge yourselves with Robert Mondavi’s crisp wines while being entertained by Chef John Havens’ live cooking demo of appetizers using U.S. Certified Angus Beef from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. 
On the next day, July 12, Chef John Havens will once again join the fun by sharing his love for American food by providing cooking class for only P2,000 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
And on the July 17, you will get the chance to be one of the selected few whom Chef John Havens will serve dinner to by placing a reservation on a dinner wine set for only P3,250 net.

Celebrate 4th of July at Marriott Hotel Manila.  #AllAmericanAllGoodatMarriott

Thank you Dennison Uy for the invite and for lending me your photos.

WARNING: Never Park Your Car at Cash & Carry Makati

WARNING: Never Park Your Car at Cash & Carry Makati

If you want your valuables to be gone in sixty seconds then park your car at Cash & Carry in Makati.

Earlier today we parked our car at the steel parking area of Cash & Carry. Complacent that since it is a paid parking, there will be several cctv’s and security guards that will guard and monitor our car while we eat lunch and purchase our groceries.

We are very wrong because the moment we stepped out of our car, my equipment a Canon 550 D with a 32 gb micro sd card, my lipsticks and make up and my samsung cp together with my gc’s had gone into thin air just like that.

We learned from the guard on duty that he was the only one roving the parking area. Gross negligence was committed by the parking management by not providing cctv in the area. According to the management, they only have a cctv at the second level of the steel parking area. Kumikita sila ng milyones sa parking pero wala silang pang bili ng cctv???

I find that hard to believe. But then again, we experienced first hand how lax the security was in that part of Makati.

So VP Jejomar Binay ganyan po ba ang Makati? #MAKATI #GanitoKamiSaMakati #JejomarBinay #JunjunBinay #Police #Cash&Carry #Cash&CarryPugadNgSalisiGang

PHILTRANCO: Celebrating 100 Years Of Service To The Filipino People

PHILTRANCO: Celebrating 100 Years Of Service To The Filipino People


I was amazed by the fact that my favorite Philippine transport company Philtranco is celebrating its centennial year.
Believe it or not, at 100 years, it is the 3rd oldest bus company in the world! 
I was born in Bicol. And Philtranco is part of my growing up years simply because it is the transportation of choice of my family and of many other Bicolano families to and from Metro Manila.
Did you know that my family and I used to go to Manila either by:
  • airplane 
  • with our own car 
  • train
  • via Philtranco. 
My dad refuses to go to Manila via bus unless it is Philtranco. Are you wondering why? Well, it is simply because Philtranco is very reliable, fast and safe plus it has its own toilet. Years ago toilet stops on the way to Manila were dangerous because of hold-ups and sometimes passengers, after alighting to eat or to go to the restroom at stops during the trip, get dizzy and mistakenly hop on a different bus.
Congratulations to the 100 years of fast, safe and reliable transport of Filipino passenger, Philtranco! Continue the biyaheng masaya for another 100 years! Mabuhay!
