Yesterday I saw a post over twitter and facebook that Jollibee will be giving away FREE 100 Aloha Burgers in 35 stores across the country. Since one of the store listed is located near our office, I went down this afternoon together with two of my officemates and I’m glad as we were to get each of us a coupon.


Exactly 2:30 pm, they started to give out the tickets in front of the Jollibee along Emerald Ave. Ortigas. The claiming period is between 3pm until 5pm, so we went back to the office for the meantime.

I was able to claim it around 3:45 pm. I took it home, shared a few bites with my mom, and enjoyed eating it as my merienda. Sarap!

Thanks Jollibee and Happy 35th Anniversay!

It was my first time to watch live MMA actions and that night was filled with excitement and screams from the crowd. Every match was so intense and worth watching. Each fighter really showed their best techniques to win. But of course in each battle, only one can win.

Pacific Xtreme Combat’s first show for 2013 was a great start. For sure, more actions will come as mixed martial arts had started to gain more Filipino audience and enthusiasts.

Thanks to PRC Inc., public relations company of PXC,  for giving me the chance to watch this.
