Say Yes to San Jose: Let NSJBI Build Your Dreams For You

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Dreaming of having your own home, then you should wake up now and head on over to any of the properties developed by New San Jose Builders, Inc. (NSJBI)!

The renowned Filipino property developer headed by its chairman, Mr. Jose Acuzar recently launched a heightened campaign to reach more Filipinos and provide them with quality yet affordable homes.

Honestly, its my first time to hear about this developer but I've heard the name of Mr. Acuzar already. It seems reputation precedes him as the man behind the properties is more famous than his creations.

New San Jose Builders, Inc from its humble beginning back in 1986 as a contractor of government projects, it has already diversified to include residential and condominium properties that are communities with a higher standard of living. It begins with a strong foundation brought about by the patron saint from which the company was named after - Saint Joseph, the carpenter.

Philips LED: A Glimpse of the Future in Lighting Innovation

Wazzup Pilipinas!

They are saying that Philips is set to revolutionize the landscape of lighting with innovation concepts that are a glimpse of the future. And so we were given a brief experience of the possibilities of what the future of lighting holds through Philips remarkable presentation during their LED product launch held at the Blue Leaf Events Place located in McKinley Bonifacio Global City.

The event initiated in total darkness. Well..not really total darkness...but I thought so until I remeber that I forgot to take off my shades. I came in late so when I was led to a room, I saw mostly darkness but I can see that there were people all around watching a video presentation. They are only seen because of the light coming from the video screen.

Then I heard a familiar voice. The voice of Gabe Mercado, one of my favorite comedians and now a member of SPIT - a group that does improv - but that's another story. He was discussing everything that we needed to know in a  subtly humorous way. It was all about the latest innovations from Philips - who I believe now leads in the lighting industry through amazing innovations that goes beyond merely lighting dark rooms or streets.

Now lighting becomes more than just to illuminate with Philips. It is now a way of life, a lifestyle, an experience that sets the mood, a collaboration with other materials and technology that goes beyond the boundaries of what is normal. It elevates the thinking of men into becoming more creative and experimental.

Foxy Filipina Elise Estrada is a Canadian Popstar

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Canada is a hot bed of pop music activity. Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne and Alanis Morrisette are just some of the big names to have come from the big country up north and this proves that Canadians can pump out great sounding world pop. That's why it's with great anticipation that we're holding our breath for one Elise Estrada.

Dubbed as the “Canadian Pop Princess,” Elise is a singer-songwriter-performer with a string of number one hits to her name. Her music videos are bombastic audio-visual experiences and best of all, Elise has got Pinoy blood pumping in her veins. This foxy Filipina-Canadian had an amazing debut back in 2008 when her album and its title-track “Insatiable” hit number one at the Canadian Billboard pop charts. Her streak continued with another top ten hit in “These Three Words,” before hitting the top again with the R&B tinged pop track “Unlove You.”

Elise has since been nominated for the Juno (Canadian Grammy) Award for “Best R&B Soul Album,” and has aced prestigious nods like the “Emerging Artist Award,” “Best New Artist,” and has over 40,000 airplay spins on FM radio for “Insatiable” alone. Over the course of two R&B inflected dance albums, Elise has produced a total of ten Top Ten hits. She has also shared the stage with Lady Gaga, Rihanna, 50 Cent, Sean Kingston, Nelly and The Backstreet Boys, making good on the monicker given her as the “Rihanna Of Canada.”

Kito Romualdez Launches Self-Titled Debut Album

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Acoustic guitar-flavored pop music acts are a dime-a-dozen. But every now and then, somebody new comes along who just coaxes you with the easiest melodies and the catchiest of original songs.

Say hello then to Kito Romualdez.

This singer-songwriter is originally a native of San Juan, Manila. But he's lived most of his young life in Canada. Now that he's back in the land of his birth, all he wants to do is sing you his songs. His musical influences are John Mayer, Jason Mraz, John Legend, Alicia Keys and a few more choice singers. The common denominator here is that he's into artists who write their own songs.

Maybe that's why Kito is into creating his own material. In fact, the first track off his self-titled debut is a self-penned tune. And incidentally, it's also one of the best tracks in his album.

An imaginitive piece of pop writing, “Ready Ka Na Ba?” is a call to action as Kito asks, are you ready to be in a relationship? It's plain as day as Kito sings “ready ka na ba lumipad, sumayaw at umikot-ikot sa mundong kong ito? ready ka na ba magsaya, kumanta sa mundong nakakahilo?” It's obvious what Kito's asking---are you ready for the rollercoaster ride of love?---It's exciting and nerve-wracking for sure. But you're assured here as Kito ends that little verse with “kapit lang, andito ako.” Coupled with a head-bobbing melody that you can't escape, “Ready Ka Na Ba?” is an excellent way to start an album.

Aquabest and Evee: Partners for Beauty and Wellness

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Two companies combined their resources into a single event to promote health and wellness that will rejuvenate our bodies both inside and out. I was actually surprised that a bottled water and a skin care company were organizing an event together. But it does make sense when they finally explained why.

Well, frankly it was sort of a bit difficult to understand but maybe because I'm not just thinking too deep. Most of us are probably like that. We often neglect some things because of so many other things we do. We are too busy or somehow only focused to a few like a saddled horse with restricted sight that we could not multi-task effectively.

We learned from the event that not all bottled water are the same. Some do really stand out among the rest if you do proper testing to reveal which one is really beneficial to your health. Aquabest introduced the alkaline water produced by their new technology.

Meanwhile, Evee launched the Lumina white line - a comprehensive facial care line developed to achieve the Asian ideal for skin which considers very fair, bright, and blemish free.

Red Turnip Presents Rabbit Hole as Second Season Opener

Wazzup Pilipinas!

During the interview at the press launch, I asked Topper Fabregas if he is now aiming for a Gawad Buhay awards this time as he directs Red Turnip Theater's David Lindsay-Abaire's 2007 Pulitzer Prize winning play entitled Rabbit Hole as its initial offering for the second season,  and he laugh out loud for he knew it was meant as a joke and followed it with "After that speech, I don't think I will nominated ever." Lol!

Topper was one of the presentors during the Gawad Buhay Awards night held a few days ago at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and sort of took the moment to express his bitterness towards the panel of judges who chose the nominated actors and actresses because of the fact that he was not nominated for an award. Of course we knew he was joking so we had a huge laugh during that night.

Now, during our "speed dating" interview after the cast made an initial introduction to themselves and the season opener, they alternately transferred from one table to the next so members of the media would have a chance to do more intimate interviews on a two artists per table procedure.

The second season presscon was held last June 16, 2014 at the 2nds restaurant located at Bonifacio Global City, and was partially sponsored by Fila Philippines.

LTO Nabs 10 Colorum Buses, Will Impose P 1-Million Fine

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Led by enforcers from the Land Transportation Office (LTO), ten (10) colorum buses have been caught in different areas of the country since yesterday, 19 June 2014, marking the implementation of Joint Administrative Order (JAO) No. 2014-01 of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), and the LTO.

DOTC Secretary Jun Abaya advised the LTO to “Carry on with the good job so far of enforcing safety measures which will protect motorists and commuters alike. Let’s continue creating a culture of road discipline for the public good.”

According to LTO Assistant Secretary Alfonso Tan, Jr., the 10 operators which were caught by traffic enforcers are the following: 

DOTC to Transport Groups: Follow Traffic Rules, Have Nothing to Fear

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Reacting to the transport caravan organized by several transport groups today, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) is making its message clear: If you are not violating traffic rules and regulations, you have nothing to fear.

“We issued the revised fines and penalties to better ensure road discipline and safety for the public. If these groups are not violating traffic rules and safety measures, then what are they protesting about? It is time for them to follow rules like everyone else, and to practice discipline and orderliness on the road,” said DOTC Secretary Jun Abaya.

“Commuters put their safety in the hands of transport operators everyday. It is government’s obligation to make sure that public utility vehicle operators are responsible in delivering their services. That is why we issued the Joint Administrative Order,” Abaya added.

Joint Administrative Order (JAO) No. 2014-01 of the DOTC, the Land Transportation Office (LTO), and the Land Transportation Franchising & Regulatory Board (LTFRB) sets higher fines and penalties for various violations of land transportation rules and regulations, including a P 1 Million fine for colorum buses. It took effect today, threatening the operation of illegal or unauthorized PUVs.

Facebook Users Most Likely Targets of Account Theft

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Facebook remains the preferred target for cybercriminals who specialize in stealing social network accounts.

According to Kaspersky Lab’s statistics in Q1 2014, fake sites imitating Facebook accounted for 10.85% of all instances when the heuristic Anti-phishing component was triggered.

Only fake Yahoo pages sparked more phishing alerts, leaving Facebook the prime target among social networking sites.

Today’s Facebook fakery is a global business, with cyber criminals attacking the site in a variety of languages like English, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Turkish, Arabic and others.

Unauthorized access to accounts in Facebook or any other social network can be used to spread phishing links or malware.

Cybercriminals also use stolen accounts to send spam to the victims’ contact lists and publish spam on their friends’ walls where it can be seen by other users, or to spread messages asking their friends to send urgent financial assistance.

Las Flores Levels Up Their Menu to a More Sumptuous Version

Wazzup Pilipinas!

There's this contemporary Spanish restaurant and cocktail bar at Bonifacio Global City that has leveled up the dining experience by offering a more sumptuous menu version number 2. I can fully support that statement with proof by showing you a photo of what's left in our table after a great lunch treat. Left-overs will also soon be out of your vocabulary if you will frequent the place.

It is very rare that we end up eating everything up in just a couple of hours. We would normally have a dish or two that we won't like and leave it barely untouched. But there was a huge difference at Las Flores (The Flowers). I would know because it's my second time there. I was also there last year when we tried out their dishes and just like now, we left nothing for the doggie bag.

Las Flores offers modern Spanish dishes that were creatively fashioned to entice all senses. Even their cocktails and other liquor mixes are works of art that are totally satisfying that you wouldn't want to waste a drop. They have lots of dishes to serve you until you're all bloated and feeling good about your decision that you chose to dine in this heavenly place.

Jeepney Tours: Videoke Fun Time While Touring the Streets of Manila

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The jeepney is the most iconic representation of the Philippines next to the national flag. I know that the original make were used to transport soldiers during wartime, and that many of these vehicle were left behind after the war and eventually "pimped" by the Filipinos to make it more attractive and pleasing to the eye.

At present, it also shows how creative our countrymen are. There are a variety of festive designs ranging from superheroes to family member portraits that clearly shows how endearing we are to both our hobbies and personal ties.

Just like our many festivals, the jeepney is as colorful and grand in terms of decorations depending on how affluent the owner is. But what is very evident about jeepneys is how it also represents the resilience of Filipinos. This vehicle can carry loads of passengers beyond its seating capacity. We can see many passengers hitching a ride at its back, and even some on top, just like our visits to the provinces. True enough, just like Filipinos, we can handle loads of stress and distress, and come out still strong and raring to go for more rides.

But wouldn't it be great if we could further pimp our Jeepney ride to also actively promote tourism in the country while having loads of fun at the same time. Well, at Jeepney Tours, they made touring the streets of Manila, and other provinces of the Philippines, a real fun ride that you would literally want to sing out loud to rejoice its beauty, and of course to freely express your joy  that has been wanting to come out from deep inside.

Mad for Pizza: More Than Just a Toppings-All-You-Want Pizza Place

Wazzup Pilipinas!

It was sort of intriguingly funny to realize the food attendants were carrying names like Pepper, Garlic and Sausage. Though it's not their real name, but merely fancy pizza toppings-themed nicknames given to them that reflects their personality. The restaurant management thought it would be a crazy way to totally immersed their customers to a complete pizza adventure. You're not just making your own pizza, but even the people around you has a hint of a pizza in the making.

Imagine yourself calling out to a server named Pepperoni, and maybe you'll see yourself unable to  stop grinning. Well, I was smiling all over the idea, that even encouraged me to ask some of them to do a video shoot (which you will see embedded within this article) to highlight their individual aliases. Try to see if it truly matches their personality when you visit the restaurant.

The recently opened Mad for Pizza is located at  Il Terrazo, Tomas Morato in Quezon City and offers Toppings All-You-Want pizza for only P280. But what makes it different from the other pizza place with a similar Make-Your-Own-Pizza theme is that this brand not only allows you to customize your own pizza, but it also offers a lot more equally satisfying dishes and drinks to complete your dining experience.

Launching of the First Philippine University Investment Club

Wazzup Pilipinas!

MetisEtrade has recently spearheaded and launched the Philippine University Investment Club Program in collaboration with 5 top Philippine universities - ADMU, DLSU, UA&P, San Beda, and UP.

The Philippine University Investment Club (PUIC), an elite trading and investment training program, launched its first of seven training sessions last June 14, 2014 in Ateneo’s Ching Tan Hall, John Gokongwei School of Management. The training is being spearheaded by MetisEtrade and attended by select students from five Philippine Universities with renowned business programs.

The investment club’s objective is to develop the financial industry in the Philippines particularly through incubating the foreign exchange, precious metals and commodities fund management industry. By working with prestigious universities in the country, the program hopes to find, select and train future fund managers.

The New Mini Cooper S: Transformed and Ready to Roll Out to Impress You

Wazzup Pilipinas!

John Cooper, famous Mini fiddler and F1 designer, may now have enough reasons to make him turn in his grave to try out the car that now wears his name.

The undeniable exuberant charm and retro coolness of the Mini have taken this car brand to great heights. Now, a look at the new Mini Cooper S and it becomes really clear that the Mini is no longer a "mini." You’d never get the impression that the Mini is a big car as long as it’s not parked next to one of its predecessors. But "big" here does not only mean the outside physical look, you have to step inside into the driver's seat to really know what "big" means. This third-generation model pushes the envelope on “premium” way, way farther.

The yellow paint job and black racing stripes paired with bug-eye headlamps gives the 2014 Mini Cooper S a distinct style. The car looks great from man angles. The classical cute, stocky, upright and similarity to the rough-and-ready look of an English Bulldog was said to be intentionally kept and will never change in every redesign.

Thanks to the more aggressive bumpers on both ends and a mesh radiator grille, the Mini Cooper S adopts a sportier appearance than the Mini Cooper. The designers have bestowed the car with even chunkier exterior styling, headlights that are gaping cannons of halogen (or optional LEDs), and huge logos.

Epson Featured At 2014 Eco-Products International Fair

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Eco-Products International Fair (EPIF) 2014, the largest environmental exhibition in Asia, also included an Epson booth where products from the digital imaging and printing brand were featured. The EPIF, held at the Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall earlier this year, was jointly organized by the Asian Productivity Organization (APO) and Taiwan's Bureau of Foreign Trade.

Owing to a series of disasters caused by extreme weather patterns, the overall interest in environmental action has been mounting in Asia lately.  Taiwan, which has a strong market for environmental goods, was chosen to host this year's EPIF, now in its ninth year. Epson had a solid presence at EPIF, with Epson Taiwan Technology & Trading Ltd., Epson Singapore Pte., Ltd. and Seiko Epson Corporation presenting exhibits that highlighted Epson's efforts to create eco-considerate products in new business areas and to help realize a sustainable society.

Epson depicted mileposts in the company’s development, starting with the seminal EP-101, the world's first small, lightweight digital printer. The digital imaging company also drew attention to the environmental benefits of Epson’s compact, energy-saving, and high-precision technologies and explained that Epson is expanding beyond consumer markets and into the business, industrial, sports and personal healthcare sectors.

The Rogue Magnum: Indulge in a More Edgy Dessert Experience

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Your friendly neighborhood pambansang blogger had an awesome "great" luck (nah, I was tagged along by a dear friend) to get an opportunity to try out a new dessert at Magnum Manila located at SM Aura, Bonifacio Global City. It was an intimate gathering of a few media friends to try out another sweet treat that will hopefully tickle the fancy of eager ice cream patrons willing to become more adventurous with their dessert.

Magnum Manila in partnership with Rogue Magazine has come out with a Magnum ice cream bar-based concoction that best represents the edgy identity of the lifestyle magazine. From their online site, Rogue magazine is defined as the Philippines' only literary luxury magazine covering art, culture, fashion, interiors, and controversial general-interest topics. An array of topics for an affluent, discerning, and powerful audience that warrants a dessert concoction that would equally be as thought-provoking and glamorous in both appearance and taste just like their literary masterpieces.

The multi-layered creation was a mixture of awesome ingredients conceptualized by the multi-awarded illustrious pastry Chef Miko Aspiras of Magnum Manila, and is composed of cashew meringue, marscarphone mousseline, fresh strawberries, topped with a vanilla Magnum bar dipped in Belgian white chocolate with freeze-dried strawberries and salty almond shards, drizzled with top-quality fig-flavored Crema del Duca balsamic vinegar (considered as the magic ingredient as mentioned by Rogue magazine's Editor-in-Chief Paolo Reyes. Balsamic vinegar has become all the rage thanks to creative chefs at upscale restaurants) and then cutely branded by the small round chocolate Magnum logo we see as a big M.

New Mexico True Breakfast Burrito Byway: Putting Chile-Laden Meals on the Map

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The New Mexico Tourism Department is putting the Breakfast Burrito on the map. Literally.

The state of New Mexico is putting its chile-laden breakfast burritos on the map with the unveiling of the New Mexico True Breakfast Burrito Byway. This will surely make road tripping to the state more tastier tastier.

No adventure in New Mexico is complete until you have experienced their cuisine. Unlike any other, it is a blend of flavors from Spanish and Native American cultures that has been perfected over the course of 400 years. At the center of it all is the New Mexican chile, in both red and green varieties, which is used in everything from enchiladas to ice cream. Whether you are looking for a dining experience that has received a James Beard award or an authentic dive off the beaten path, you will find it here.

In New Mexico almost no food, no meal is without the influence of the famous chile pepper. So it should be no surprise that New Mexico claims the invention of the Breakfast Burrito. It is the wrapped wonder that brings spice to the morning. It is now a staple on menus across the Southwest, and showing up frequently on menus nationwide. Even fast food chains now offer versions. Now, to celebrate this success and its New Mexico heritage, they have created the New Mexico True Breakfast Burrito Byway.

All Airports to Include Terminal Fees in Airline Tickets Soon

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Following the Manila International Airport Authority’s (MIAA) move to incorporate terminal fees in passengers’ airline tickets upon purchase for less queuing time at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Secretary Jun Abaya has instructed other airport authorities to do the same.

“We want to improve passenger convenience at all our airports, not just through infrastructure and facilities upgrades, but also through more efficient business processes. I have asked the other airport authorities to follow MIAA’s lead,” said Abaya.

These bodies are the Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA), the Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC), as well as the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), which operates the country’s airports besides NAIA, Cebu, and Clark.

“This development comes as we are developing several key airports across the country to accept more international flights, in support of our tourism goals. We are expanding Cebu and Clark, and at the same time, upgrading or replacing those in Puerto Princesa, Bohol, Bicol, and Caticlan,” Abaya added.

MIAA first integrated terminal fees for domestic flights on 1 August 2013, and is set to begin transitioning to an integrated system for international flights over a one-year period beginning in October this year until September 2015. The transition period is meant to cover those passengers who have purchased their tickets in advance.

Around The World In 15 (Speed) Dates

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Welcome to the wedding month of June! We're not gonna talk about bouquets, bridal gowns or honeymoon destinations today. Let's step back a bit and make June an extension of the Valentine's Month as we discuss about... speed dating.

You probably think no one does speed dating today after it has gained social approval here in the Philippines about a decade ago. I was invited by Telu Events, one of speed dating organizers in Manila, to prove this wrong. I'm not really sure what to expect but I was excited nevertheless while I was on my way to the venue in Cab Cafe (East Capitol Drive, Pasig City) last Saturday.

I was preparing myself to see a very romantic venue adorned with Rose petals and with lighted candles on tables in a room infused with music by a violinist or a pianist. When I reached the venue, I found my expectations too traditional. Yes, there were candles and petals but the full-packed room of 30 participants, 15 girls and 15 guys, can be likened to a classroom of excited college freshmen. Everyone was talking!

Happy Father's Day Gifts from Max's Restaurant

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I was in the middle of listening to a speaker who was sharing information about his company when my mobile phone rang. I forgot to put it in silent mode so I had to immediately walk out of the room to answer it. I heard a familiar voice on the line and she informed me that they were at my home to deliver something. later I realized they also sent me a text message that said "hi ross, are you at home? may dedeliver kasi kme jan snyo" which I failed to reply to because I was glued on listening to the speaker's social innovation story.

Nobody was at our home during the day. My wife was at work, and my three kids were all in school, while I was attending the first day of The Dream Expo MNL happening for three days at the Asian Development Bank in Ortigas. I told the caller to just leave their packages at our neighbors. I had to talk to our neighbor before she agreed to accept the packages in fear it might be a bomb or something.

When I got home....Wow! It was a remarkable early Father's Day gift from Max's Restaurant. Father's Day is still on the 15th (third Sunday of June) but Max's delivered it before that special day. I should also say "gifts" instead of "gift" because not just one, but two boxes of wonderful thoughts of appreciation from one of my favorite restaurants was there at home.

Mara Lopez is on the Cover of Playboy Philippines June 2014

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Kudos to the photographer for such an impressive shot which really captured my attention. This is one of the very best cover photo that I've seen.

Playboy Philippines looked for a muse for their 6th year anniversary. They will be celebrating their anniversary on June 26, 2014 at Solaire Resort and Casino.

The qualities required: 1. One who best represents ferocious sensuality without overstepping the lines of class and sophistication. 2. One who represents the wit and playfulness of this iconic brand. They chose the alluring Mara Lopez.
Like mother, like daughter...she definitely looks totally (put your preferred adjective here) like her mother. She stands out among the other magazine covers all lined up in the newstands. Mara Lopez looked really stunning while partially submerged in water. Actually, that was the crucial aspect which made this shot really special aside from the natural beauty of Mara Lopez.

Dive in (even in just a bathtub) and see the world through the eyes of this mesmerizing indie-film sweetheart and avid surfer.
