The Commission on Filipinos Overseas, Duty Free Philippines, Good News Pilipinas and Kraft Asia and Toblerone are stepping up to the challenge by announcing the opening of nominations for the first Thank You Global Pinoy Awards.
The Thank You Global Pinoy Awards is an initiative that seeks to search for the most outstanding global Filipino workers who deserve the gratitude not only of their loved ones; but also of the nation as a whole. It is primarily led by the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO)—the government agency tasked to promote and uphold the interests of Filipino emigrants and permanent residents abroad and Toblerone as the key proponent of Thank You Day in 2007.
We are glad to personally witness the said Global Pinoy Award project last August 26 at Duty Free Philippines as a support for the noble cause to our overseas Filipino worker.
They got this picture booth around and post it message writing your own note of gratitude.
A purely below-the-line initiative, the Thank You Global Pinoy Awards will invite nominations of outstanding overseas Filipino workers who deserve to be thanked.
For more information, those who are interested to join will have to log on to www.thankyouglobalpinoy.com to register, nominate and vote for the ultimate Global Pinoy. The top 10 stories will be awarded in January 2012. So good luck!
Got the opportunity to attend the launching of new breed of corned beef last August 25.
But what makes it different with regular beef?
Highlands Corned Beef is the very first corned beef out there in the market that’s made with Angus Beef.
Why Angus Beef? Because good beef starts with good breed and Angus is a premium breed of cattle that gives high-quality beef. Highlands Corned Beef is filled with the rich beef taste of Angus and has long and juicy beef strands.
Angus Beef has been identified as a beef priced at a premium due to its superior quality and taste. But now you can enjoy the premium taste of Angus beef without spending a great deal of money because Highlands Corned Beef is reasonably priced at only P41.50 per 180g.
This food serving sandwich got out of the can without frying or putting anything. It has no artificial flavors and got this natural taste of Angus Beef.
What makes Highlands Corned Beef to look for are their new breed of exceptional talents which represented by actor, Jake Cuenca, AZKAL’s very own, James Younghusband, filmmaker Paul Soriano, entrepreneur Luke Landrigan and dancer, Angelo Cacciatore which all of them like Highlands Corned Beef.

Fried dishes like chicharon bulaklak, chickens and dipped crunchy bacon sliced pork to hopped in.
One can also found isaw as the famous street food while roaming around.
This is Korea’s most famous dish Bibimbap from K-Bop Dinner.
There were also tacos to share.
Fruitas also has this famous buko halo-halo.
Even all the resto were close, employees and folks nearby can celebrate amazing food with abundance at The Great Night Market from 10:00pm to 4:00am from Mondays to Thursdays.

We were fortunate enough to witness SM Hypermart Master Chef Tour 2011 at SM Sucat last August 16 with Chef Jonathan Chua as the guest chef.
My entry picture is a twist of hotdog sandwich which the Chef called Cheesy Hotdog and Fries Sandwich Overload drizzled with Magnolia Cheese Spread at top – different way to serve merienda with the kids.
Another dish is the Chicken and Mushroom Baked Rice top with fried chicken fingers on top of the rice with condensed cream of mushroom baked with grated cheese.
For the dessert, Chef Jonathan prepared Peaches and Cream Caramel Triple. The cake is a layer of chiffon with a spread of caramel topped with whipped cream, nuts and slices of peaches.
After the cooking demo, Magnolia products were raffled out with the audience to get them a chance to try the dishes at home.

Its a great feeling that I have attended Teleserv Event at Gateway introducing their services. But what captured my attention was the renewing of passport via online.
I was about to go to DFA to renew my passport. I am living here in the south and a bit hassle for me to go and fix it.
But with Teleserv, I can do it right on my own home with the less expense of transportation but more on wasting my time.
