Tutuban Virtual Zoo opens today

My daughter and I were invited to witness the opening of the Tutuban Virtual Zoo.

Though miles away from where we reside plus the unpredictable weather, I decided to give in to my daughter's prodding to go on with our trip to Tutuban Center. And lo, we were not disappointed.
No less than the Manila City Mayor, Alfredo Lim, graced the opening of the Tutuban Virtual Zoo at the 4th level of Tutuban Center Mall 2 along C.M. Recto Avenue, Manila.
The Tutuban Virtual Zoo was conceptualized and developed to cater to naturally curious young minds and provide answers to questions they may have about the animal kingdom.  Simply put, it is a collage of larger-than-life 3D photos of elephants, tigers, sharks, turtles, horses and other familiar animals mounted on walls.
Kids and parents will have a thrill taking pictures of various interesting and popular animals mounted on Tutuban Cinema lobby walls.

With these exciting animals in various poses, the cinema lobby was beautifully transformed to a virtual theme park!   These free photo opportunity sessions with the 3D photos of animals will surely draw in more crowds at Tutuban Center.

Loyal mall patrons and movie buffs will also have more reason to shop at Tutuban Center and enjoy their Tutuban Virtual Zoo experience with the family.

The Tutuban Virtual Zoo is open from 10:00AM up to 8:00PM daily.

NESCAFÉ® introduces Genio and Melody 3 to the Dolce Gusto® roster

Last October 24, NESCAFÉ® Philippines unveiled two new Nescafe Dolce Gusto machines to hit the local market this November. Genio and Melody 3 gives more reasons for people to enjoy coffee (hot or cold) in the pop, lock, and drop away tradition that revolutionized the coffee industry.
These compact and modern coffee machines concocts yummy drinks in a gourmet-style! Technologically advanced Genio® comes in a gumball machine-like design. It is stylish and so it stands out on any kitchen counter. It is ideal for kitchenettes, cubicles, dorm rooms or anywhere else where saving space is important.

Genio makes life easy for the user by having the optimal setting on the wheel dial at the top of the machine for the user to chose from. You can use the dial to add and subtract bars on the LED-backlit screen to indicate your strong or weak preference. The number of bars on each pod goes higher as you crave for stronger coffee flavor. The Melody 3 coffee machine is also easy to use. Just like Genio, you only need to pull out its drawer, pop a pod in, snap it shut and pull the hot or cold lever to get things going. The machine is gives out coffee in just 30 seconds or less after you switch it on. It makes decent tasting coffee made quickly and without fuss. The Dolce Gusto Melody 3 looks nice. It comes in fire engine red, black and white.
Both machines uses Thermoblock technology that heats the water fresh every time, in less than one minute. Since not all flavours require one pod, you have to run the machine again with a separate pod.

NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® uses only the highest quality ingredients using 100% Arabica, rich chocolate and foamy milk. Everything you need to make hot or cold drinks are contained in the easy-to-use capsules making it a no fuss, no mess coffee experience. These coffee capsules combine with the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® machines to give every cup a perfect foamy froth and rich créme.

Support Philippine-made items: It’s Worth Buying For

PHmade’s tagline “It’s Worth Buying For” encourages each Filipino to think twice before spending: is it really worth buying for? Yabang Pinoy believes that small things, when done together, can create a big difference. If each Filipino became conscious of where he spends one peso, he will understand how each choice affects himself, fellow Filipinos, and the country. PHmade also aspires to influence Filipino entrepreneurs into supporting local natural and human resources.

Indeed, patronage of locally made goods and services should be a lifestyle. It enables homegrown brands to improve and compete against foreign brands. The local economy also improves as money goes back and forth between consumer and business, employee and employer. And as more entrepreneurs create, develop, and expand their businesses, more job opportunities are generated. PHmade recognizes Filipino ingenuity and the role of each Filipino in nation-building.

PHmade focuses on seven categories: Produce, Home, Footwear, Fashion, Personal and Home Care, Food and Beverage, and Entertainment. The campaign will continue to collaborate with Filipino entrepreneurs and encourage them to continue to improve their products and services and to always aim for Filipino brands to be global brands.

PHmade is a project of Yabang Pinoy, the pioneering Filipino pride movement that started in 2005. As it celebrates its 8th anniversary, the organization includes it among numerous Filipino pride projects, such as the Y.A.B.A.N.G. Camp (Youth Achievers Building A Nation of Greatness Camp), Yabang Pinoy Goes to School, Pinaka-mahabang Todo Patintero, Global Pinoy Bazaar, and many more. In the 8 years that Yabang Pinoy has immersed itself in various nation-building activities, it re-affirms its belief that true progress and development in our country will start once Filipinos begin living a proudly Filipino lifestyle.

Yabang Pinoy invites every Filipino to be part of the PHmade movement. Support the local economy and strengthen the local economy. Save November 10- 11 2012 for the 8th Global Pinoy Bazaar – a showcase of Filipino products made with 100% Filipino Love and Pride. Global Pinoy bazaar will be held at the Rockwell Tent, makati City from 10AM to 10PM.
