I joined fellow blogger friends in an exquisite formal dinner of Roast US Duck Estofado Ensalada, Canadian Cheddar Crusted-Smoked Laguna Cheese, Guimaras Mango Organic Greens, Pako Ferns, Maple Mustard-Philippine Honey Vinaigrette (Appetizer), Ocean and Earth - Halibut (Pinais sa Tampipi)- Tomato Confit, Kalabasa Flowers, Slow Roast US Beef Belly, Maple Glaze - Bistek Tagalog Jus, Wilted Onions, Canadian Vintage Cheddar Potato Mash Broccoli Tops and Corn Guisado Cashew Crusted Millefoglie, Canadian Camembert-Mascarpone Foam-Poached US Grapes and Baguio Strawberry Coconut Latik Drizzle.

Ramos who was given recognition for helping improve the company and the newest ambassador, ABS-CBN's newest hottest sensation, Inigo Pascual.
Legacy the musical narrated the history of Sun Life Philippines, its struggles and achievements providing quality service to investors and security insurance that withstood the test of time and calamities.

Event: #honeybonph (honeybee ph) brings #SakuraMangoCake

Honeybee is now Honeybon Philippines! From the humble beginnings of Tokyo Bubble Tea which was once just a school project that became a hobby blooming as a successful chain of restaurants is Honeybon. It used to be Honeybee but since Ms.Aileen Tan wanted to offer more to customers, the name had to evolve in a more dynamic keyword. I joined fellow foodie blogger friends sampling the new offers of Honeybon following its rebranding this year.
Honeybon (Honeybee) is the cakes and pastry section in selected Tokyo Bubble Tea branches. The owner of Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurant is married to the owner of Honeybon and the marriage of providing delectable dishes and cakes makes every branch a one-stop shop of a quick fix. I've known Tokyo Bubble Tea offering delicious milk tea and coffee perfect with their cakes and pastries. 
It was my first time trying their Champorado with a speck of Tuyo. In rich chocolate syrup, it was really different from the usual champorado I've had. It was thick, rich and flavorful not the sweet concoction grandmothers used to have. This is just one of the many All-Day Breakfast dishes offered in Wilson and Blue Ridge Katipunan branches and it was already unforgettable.
Honeybon cakes and pastries are different because unlike popular brands and chains, theirs are creamy and delicious aside from it looking good. Their newest offering in celebration of the Japanese Sakura Festival is Sakura Mango Cake. It's too beautiful I just wanted to keep taking photos. 
It's a soft chiffon loaf filled with fresh sweet Guimaras mango bits in ice cream frosting. Adorned with pink flower foamy frosting that's not too sweet nor tangy, Sakura Mango Cake is one beautiful cake to delight the whole family. I loved the sweet and soury mango bits that kicks in a bite of a rich and creamy chiffon dream. I will definitely appreciate this better than the usual birthday cakes. Take your cake experience to another level at Honeybon ( in selected Tokyo Bubble Tea branches and soon on its own independent shops).

This year with a new set of comedy icons Rufa Mae Quinto, Ate Gay, Gladys Guevarra and Candy Pangilinan, 4 Da Best Plus One will be different according to Mamu. With four seamless intertwined monologues of the four plus Kim Idol joining the stage, 4 Da Best Plus One promises a night of fun and laughter the old and the young will enjoy. The cast sans musical director Soc Mina and Kim Idol shared how grateful they were being chosen to bring comedy in Music Museum and the rest of the world.
Rufa Mae Quinto seemed to have accepted typecasted as one booby character opposite her wish to play an Angelina Jolie-type of Tomb Raider action-drama actress. This and other sentiments of the cast were part of the grand press conference at Packo's Grill Restaurant Quezon City earlier today.
When asked where broken hearts go, Candy, Gladys and Ate Gay sang the part of the song as an answer-evident of their wit and wisdom to bring laughter to those lovelorn.

Event: Fallen SAF44 in #Mandirigma by #StarquestAllianceProd

Giving more opportunities to those who aim the limelight, Starquest Alliance Productions Inc launched its talents and projects to the media at Dad's Saisaki Quezon City yesterday. Among the top executives of Starquest who attended were Mark Angelo Castillo-President, Kim Reyes -CEO and Atty Kristoffer Bryan Salom- corporate secretary.
President Mark Angelo Castillo shared how he continued the family's business seeing the opportunities and the commitment to groom and cultivate the country's next batch of showbiz talents. Among the batch of hopefuls include Arisson JanPaul V. Umali, Jennevie Barcellano, Jemerlou C. De Leon, Aron Christopher R. Layug, Miguel Joseph A. Reyes, Lial Jorie De Guzman Guevarra, Angela Sophia S. Tolentino and Rojean Delos Reyes. Announced during the grand launch was Starquest Alliance Production's first movie to be shown on Araw ng Kagitingan (April 9, 2015) - Mandirigma. 
Directed by famous broadcaster/journalist Arlyn DelaCruz, the former lead they aimed Derek Ramsay was replaced by Luis Alandy because of the conflict in schedules. Also starring Mark Solis, Maria Isabel Lopez, Ken Anderson and other veteran actors with the first batch of Starquest hopefuls, Mandirigma will narrate the story of the fallen SAF troops in 2011 and 2014. Manay Ethel Ramos clarified how the two true stories can be reconciled in one movie and Nestor Cuartero also asked if they will have to ask permission from the government for the film. Direk Arlyn DelaCruz shared that they'll have to not focus on the fallen SAF troops so as not to ignite more anger of the viewing public. I'm excited how these hopefuls will show their acting talents and if they really have potential to beat the big network stars of today. Still, the aim to provide more opportunities to hopefuls is one noble cause. Join the Starquest Alliance Productions Inc. "Your Platform to Limelight".
