Melancholic? As if the world is pinning you down with the elephants' trunks honking on your poor, poor ears?
Trapped in Mr. Rabbit's hole without the chance of eating the make-you-giant cake because duh... Alice already ate it, and where in the first place did your hands got the glass bottle with a paper label that says "Drink Me", without even thinking that that exact glass bottle with a paper label that says " Drink Me" is indeed the bottle that shrunken the very curious, very famous Alice?
Does it feel like the universe plan a coup just to make your life extra crispy hot, it burns, it bleeds? Don't be absurd, unless you're one of the Baudelaire orphans. Don't be a Baudelaire, you're not even your village victors and I know you don't want to be a tribute, not if you do not want a death wish.
You're not even the animagus Pe-Peter Pe-Pettigrew, who pretended to be a Wesley's pet rat, Scabber for 12 years, for crying out loud! 12 years, just to hide the fact that he is a death eater! Bummer, Maurader's friendship, to think that the maurader's map is one awe-mazing labyrinth!
Although I agree when Lemony Snicket decided to conclude that the world is indeed a bad, bad place, we have to pick ourselves up like a dandy clubhouse with a toothpick for support. Let us all Be like Phil of the Lucky Smell Lumber Mill, more like misery Mill, I dare say! Phil, who always look into the brighter side of life. Why Phil? Gum for lunch, and still thankful. Works in Sir's lumber mill who only pays food stamp for salary, "at least I'm paid" he said. A hypnotic Klaus accidentally cut his leg off, "at least, I'm still alive." he said.  I think he even think he is lucky, because now he can wear his boots half the time he used to be.
That's it for fancy-dandy. In reality?
"I heard you're doing okay, but I want you to know... I'm addict, still addicted to you..."
"One last cry, one last cry.. Before I leave it all behind..."
The music, the alcohol and leaving the premises in the wee hours of the night. Guess where you'll end? Not in his/her arms but in the hospital. And if you're lucky (like Phil) to be good enough, in San Pedro's gate (as some believed) and not continue your life's drama in burning heart-breaking hell.
You're not sure if you're good enough? Of course, you're not sure if you're good enough. You can continue the drama, but paired it with Sosro Fruit Tea!
Yes, you can drink and drive with Sosro Fruit Tea. (Just make sure the cap's on when you press hard on the gas pedal. Sayang kapag natapon, every drop count!
#ChooseyourBottles with Sosro Fruit Tea!
A new kind of chill in four refreshing flavors
With its set of interesting flavors livened up by a refreshing tea kick, this Indonesian favorite invites the young blood to #ChooseYourBottles and to chill out. Today’s fast-paced and technology-driven world can easily drown us with stress and distractions but it’s definitely easier to keep one’s cool and to take a quick time off with a refreshing drink in hand. Adopting its mantra from the millennial-apt adage “Choose your battles,” Sosro Fruit Tea allows everyone to #ChooseYourBottles from its distinct tea-infused flavors Freeze, apple, guava, and strawberry. Pick the perfect bottle that suits your current state of mind and get to chill in no time.
"I'm not the you needed, I love you... goodbye." Sabay bukas ng Sosro Fruit Tea!
Just remember what Jack-Sparrow Johnny Depp once said "The problem is not the problem. It is your attitude towards the problem."

Blogapalooza: All About The Panda, FOODPANDA

I love pandas! Aside from the fact that he's Asian, he's white, he's black, he is chubby too! Talk about having NO favoritism! Just like for food, who says I have favorites? As long as it's edible, it's good! Let's do some Math! Let's add one of the things I love about China (Panda) and my favorite hobby (eating), what do you get? Foodpanda!!!
Foodpanda? If you haven't got a clue yet, this kind of panda is a master of art, the art of eating! It is the leading global online food ordering marketplace that lets their hungry customers conveniently discover what is edible-available out there and directly order their cravings online or via smartphones. See? Another reason why phones aren't just swag, they're a necessity nowadays, but that's another story.
Moving on, Foodpanda was founded in may 2002 at the always-hungry-but-too-busy-to-eat-out-or-cook headquarter in Berlin, Germany and has operated in more than 40 countries across the 5 continents. Oh, this panda is busy conquering the world! Locally, Foodpanda here in the Philippines is still a cub. Launched last June 2014, the hungry cub of a panda grown to over 1000 restaurants nationwide! Foodpanda is part of the German group called Rocket Internet - a platform that identifies and builds internet business models such as Lazada and Zalora. This panda is not just a foodie, but a techy too!
How does it work? Search. Choose. Pay. Enjoy!
Hungry customers simply need to download the foodpanda app from the App Store or Google Play. Or if you don't have enough space on your smartphones, just log on to, enter your location and select the restaurant that serves your cravings! Once you finalize your order and the transaction is completed, foodpanda sends the order information to the restaurant, and upon confirmation of the merchant, notifies the customer that the order is on its way- to your belly. Foodpanda is recently colonized Cebu aside from major cities in the metro including Las Pinas, Makati, Mandaluyong, Paranaque, Pasay, Pasig, Rizal and Taguig. It's arms are ready to expand its service to deliver good food fast and fresh to more hungry pinoys!
Feeling Japanese? Get the chopsticks ready as the foodpanda offers a wide variety of cuisines, ranging from American, Asian, Filipino, Greek, Mexican and Middle Eastern among others while making sure that the best restaurants and food brands out there didn't miss to hop on board!
Why not like, but LOVE the Foodpanda? Restaurant partners are able to reach more customers with the help of this generous Foodpanda's delivery service and online visibility.
Did I mention that this panda is not just a foodie, but a techy too! Follow him on FacebookTwitter and Instagram!


One of the advantages of shopping online is you could compare prices, features and get the latest dibs on any products just by the click of a mouse. No need to tug a toddler who wants to stay on the toy section and buy the same red car you bought twice already (happened to me). Aside from better prices, you get to cut cost on bus fare and air pollution if you are commuting or gas and car park fee. (which is insanely high, as if the car park is an airconditioned facility)

Yes? Bet you're nudging your head in agreement. If you happen to opt for online shopping than the conventional way, or if you are skeptical because of the security and legitimacy of the products and sellers online, i have good news for you!
