I just heard someone say, “Cervelat in my velat!” Hahahahahahaha!!!
Hey guys… I just wanted to share a homemade trailer I made.
It’s just a bunch of short video clips taken during an ordinary day out with our cute little buddy, Max – our wonderful teacup-sized pomeranian.
Enjoy the short trailer…
Hope you liked it.
I had a wonderful time. I enjoyed listening to all the songs that were presented to me during the judging session.
Good luck to all the nominees.

Globe Telecom continues to strengthen its share in the prepaid market as it gained more prepaid subscribers in the first quarter of 2013 amidst the aggressive acquisition strategies of its competitors.
The Ayala-led telco added over 506,000 subscribers during the period for its Globe Prepaid brand, up 32% and 71% from last year and last quarter, respectively. Meanwhile, its mass market brand TM gained close to 1.4 million subscribers, almost three times the level in the same period last year and almost twice the level in the previous quarter. As a result, net subscriber additions, including postpaid, increased substantially to 2.0 million, more than double last year’s level of about 984,000 and 90% higher than previous quarter’s 1.1 million net incremental subscribers.

Our next destination… the busy, crowded, festive and restaurant-riddled street of Jalan Alor.
This is one long strip of road that seems to never sleep at night. The entire stretch of Jalan Alor is lined with all sorts of food stalls, with tables and chairs that overflow from their respective restos and stretch out to the sidewalk and practically takes up almost a third of the street itself. If you’re into ihaw-ihaw and al fresco dining, this is the spot to hit.
If you’re familiar with banchetto, imagine that but a couple of times bigger. Best to dress down and dig in when you’re here! Just be sure to keep your wallet and valuables close to you. I enjoyed this place a whole lot! Good food, awesome crowd, party atmosphere… it’s just very Pinoy, me thinks!
PREVIOUS PART: Day 1 (Part 1 of 3)
Our first stop along the way was the new National Palace of Malaysia called, Istana Negara.
To say that Istana Negara is BIG is an understatement. Huge does not even come close to describing the place. Istana Negara is absofrickinlutely massive! You’ve got to be there to actually realize how vast and overwhelming the National Palace is.
After a good number of “Look! I’ve been here!” photos all over the outer grounds of the palace including some fun pics with the palace guards, we left Istana Negara to have late lunch. Yipee!
Though lunch was a tad late, it was very filling as much as it was fulfilling! Truly, much of a people’s culture and heritage can be learned through their food. And if eating is learning, then this particular lunch can be likened to a whole day lecture! I believe I ate more than my usual. Thank, God, I brought my stash of Carbtrim to even out the carbs I took in. *burp!*
After what seemed to be a foodfest over lunch, we went straight to our hotel - The Berjaya Times Square.
We, checked into our respective rooms and were given about an hour to freshen up, unpack and relax a bit before meeting up at the hotel lobby again to make the most of our first day.
An hour passed and sure enough, we were all gathered at the lobby ready to head out and see more of Kuala Lumpur. Let’s go!
Next stop – Kuala Lumpur City Gallery!
St. Augustine once said, “the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page”.
As a person who has gone to quite a number of places around and beyond our country, this particular saying breathes deeper meaning to me all the more. Truly, one must not be easily satisfied with merely being stuck in his/her own corner of the world, not caring about what lies out there in the distance.
Traveling, apart from the fun and excitement that comes with it, is a means to open one’s eyes to the world around us beyond what books and stories can ever do. This, among other things, is what prods me to explore further and to travel farther… to embrace every chance to go forth and see more of the world.
So, it goes without saying that when I was recently invited to go on a familiarization tour of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by Zest Air, AirAsia and Fleishman Hillard, I pounced at the opportunity immediately.
This tour, which took place just last May 10, 2013, coincided with ZestAir’s inaugural flights to three (3) new destinations in the region: Manila to Bacolod, Manila to Kuala Lumpur, and Manila to Kota Kinabalu.
“Tourism Malaysia is delighted that Zest Air is launching its maiden flights to Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu. This initiative certainly comes at the perfect time since Malaysia will be celebrating its fourth Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) in 2014 and this year has been designated as the VMY promotional campaign year. We seek to attract more tourists from the Philippines to Malaysia. I am confident that this enhanced connectivity will be able to boost tourist arrivals from the Philippines to Malaysia.”, said Ms. Fazdila Mansor, Director of Tourism Malaysia Manila.
I joined an awesome (and hilarious) group of cool fellow bloggers making the 3-day trip much more exciting – CA de Ramos, Alex Dizon, Ruth Floresca, Rey Belen, Jennifer Adams Juan, Enzo Luna, Mae Ilagan & Frank Ruaya, Ferds Bondoy and Azrael Coladilla.
I, personally, was excited to visit and know more about a country wherein last year, more than 500,000 Filipinos headed off to for work, business and tourism.
Notice that the flight attendants who accompanied us during the trip donned red uniforms instead of Zest Air’s usual green & orange. This is due to the fact that Zest Air presently has a strategic alliance with AirAsia. This partnership only means bigger and better things for both companies.
Another group of Zest Air guests were scheduled to fly to Kota Kinabalu at 9:35AM of the same day. This particular group was comprised of travel bloggers, passengers including celebrity singer, songwriter, and 1/3 of the my favorite APO Hiking Society, Jim Paredes.
So, off we went!

My little girl, Ella, loves to dress up. She actually dresses up like she’s headed to the mall even when we have no plans of leaving our house at all. Hahaha!
She’s very picky with the stuff she puts on. She loves clothing and accessories that are not only beautiful but long lasting too.
So, you can imagine how happy it made her when she got her own wonderfully cute pair of Skechers shoes!
