Foodpanda embarks on a new chapter in its brand evolution and unveils a fresh new look and exciting features

Hey everyone!

Here's some news for my fellow foodies who sometimes depends on food delivery just like me, foodpanda, the on-demand international food delivery service, is getting a fresh new look across its markets, offering its customers a new visual identity to accompany its renowned service standards and vision to deliver good food into people's everyday.

The brand’s enhanced look and feel is set to create value and impact in the fast-growing food delivery industry, specifically with its new outstanding pink color. The panda, an iconic brand symbol, will remain at the forefront, but has been tweaked into a rounder, more modern version. The use of a simplified shape in terms of color and line weight has also come into place, while keeping the friendliness and enhancing the memorability of the logo. In addition, the font has been updated to be more contemporary, in line with the brand’s new direction.
We are very excited to deploy our refreshed brand image and spread our new signature pink color across our markets. This marks the beginning of a new era and enables us to further stand out in the streets of the cities we cover.” says Julian Dames, Global CMO at foodpanda.

No matter the craving or price range, foodpanda opens all of its cities up to an exciting world of flavors – only now, it will do so with a new distinctive pink color. The foodpanda app and websites are introducing an improved user-friendly interface and design, as well as several new features. Customers will now be able to receive dynamic delivery times which take into account dish preparation, rider availability and time to reach their desired location, down to the last minute. In addition, foodpanda has also introduced a live tracking feature, which would allow customers to watch in real time, as their orders make their way from their favorite restaurants right to their doorstep, hassle free!



The rider equipment and in-restaurant material will also incorporate the new design and logo, without any service quality changes for customers or partner restaurants.

We took the refreshed design as an opportunity to improve our visibility and also provide even more safety to the riders. Not only are uniforms eye-catching with the pink color, but rider jackets are also lightweight and water resistant. We have also added reflective material in different parts of the rider uniform, that will be more noticeable to others on the road. This combination of style and safety will ensure being noticed on the street, and will also allow riders to enjoy wearing them while staying safe.” adds Dames.
Curious to see the new and improved foodpanda? Visit our website and download the app on IOS or Android now!

And that's it!
Hope this helps especially to those who rely on food delivery almost everyday.

'Til next time!

Ragnarok Journey PH Grand Party

Hey guys!

Last Sunday, November 12, at Glorietta 2 activity center, Gravity Co. Ltd. hosted a Grand Party for the upcoming arrival of Ragnarok Journey in the Philippines.

Based on the popular MMORPG Ragnarok Online, Ragnarok Journey is a browser MMORPG where players can battle against colorful monsters,  gain new abilities and participate in quests in a fantasy world.  It's a game everyone can play anytime,  anywhere,  without the need to download a client.


Before I discuss more details about Ragnarok Journey,  here are some of the highlights from the grand party.

The whole event was hosted by popular GMA talents Betong Sumaya and Arianne Bautista. The event was packed with gamers and long time Ragnarok fans. Early birds even got some goodies including a cute sized poring plushie.


The COO of Gravity Co. Ltd. Mr. Yoshinori Kitamura was also present at the event he gave a speech about Ragnarok Journey and gave us some insight about other Gravity Games that will be released here in PH in the near future.

Of course I got an opportunity to have a pic with Mr. Yoshinori together with my blogger friend Kamila (first girl on the left)  :)

Aside from the raffle and games there was also a cosplay competion where the contestants showcased their best RO character or NPC costumes,  here's a pic of the winners. 

This is me with the cute cosplayers from the Ragnarok booth, this groupie is actually a requirement for me to earn a passport stamp, that can be used to exchange for a price after the program. 😍

In the afternoon,  we were given a chance to interview Ms. Liliana Bae (배 상 진) from the Business Division of Gravity, she answered all of our questions and discussed all the things we need to know about Ragnarok Journey PH.

Aimed toward casual gamers, Ragnarok has been re-imagined in an all new convinient AI assisted adventure style which makes grinding and leveling up easier. Battle monsters throughout the world of Rune Midgard and use your skills to traverse through new dungeons and zones.

Here are some of the important details about Ragnarok Journey:

* One of the best features of this casual MMORPG is the Auto Play!  Turn it on and your character goes on full auto mode killing monsters and looting. When I asked Ms. Lillian if there will be tasks when actual player engagement will be needed, she said there will be some but most of the grinding can be done via auto mode.

* The game also allows players choosw a specialize class such as Mage or Swordsman at level 10.

* Characters can accumulate new abilities by manually adding skill points,  and unleash devastating attacks on a menagerie of colorful fantasy monsters, the same model used in the classic Ragnarok Online.

*There will be quests from NPCs which a player can accomplish in exchange for daily rewards.

*The game can be played in any device,  can be a pc, tablet, or a smartphone as long as your browser has a flash player, it's actually great for those who have a full time job but still want to play any Ragnarok related game.

*Also, when I asked Ms. Lillian about the availability of in game items/buffs etc. she said, there will be in game items you can purchase to help you level up faster but that doesn't mean that those who can't shell out extra cash can't win, it's a game that can be enjoyed by everyone who'll play it, either you spend extra cash or not.

BTW the event passport that I've mentioned earlier?  I was able to complete all the needed stamps and I exchanged it for this big adorbs poring plushie after the interview 😍

Last but not the least of course we waited for the final performer of the day,  6 Cyclemind!  😁

And that's it!
I hope you guys especially fellow RO fans were enlightened by this post about Ragnarok Journey PH.

You can follow their Facebook page for updates about when the game will be released. You can also pre-register here 😊

'Til next time!

21 Days to Creativity

Hey guys!

Happy Wednesday, I just want to share some info to you today.
According to a World Economic Forum report, creativity is one of the top three skills individuals will need to be successful in the new, digital world. Creative thinking helps one find new ways of solving problems by having an open and flexible mindset.


Researchers have also found that it takes at least 21 days to cultivate a habit. So, if you’re game to make creativity a habit, let us help you with these 21 ideas – all you need is a Windows device to get started!

  1. Start with the end in mind by having a creative checklist on OneNote – which can be synced easily across devices.
  2. Doodle! Long thought to be a bad habit, doodling can actually help unlock one’s creative potential. Pick up a Pen today and start doodling on Windows Ink’s Sketchpad, a whitespace for your ideas and creations . You may be surprised at what you can create.
  3. Bring a new dimension to your stories by combining photos, videos, and even 3D effects. Change your home videos forever with a T-rex chasing grandpa down the front lawn. All this is possible with Story Remix*, coming soon to Windows 10.
  4. Mixed reality is undoubtedly the next step in the evolution of human computing, blending virtual and physical worlds into one immersive whole. With Mixed Reality Viewer (available on Windows Store), you can take any 3D objects into the real world with the device’s camera.
  5. Take your creativity to the limit and create a 3D kingdom from scratch. With your friend, co-create buildings, machines and more in Minecraft Realm. Take your Realm with you across multiple devices including Windows 10 PC, Xbox, VR and even mobile devices – so your creativity is not limited by the devices you have.
  6. Exchange ideas better with a direct expression of your thoughts. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update makes it easier to let others know how you truly feel with quicker access to emojis. Hit the Windows + . (period) or Windows + ; (semicolon) shortcut to bring up the new Emoji keyboard .
  7. What is the most creative color? Orange, it seems, as it blends the energy of red and the happiness of yellow.
    So why not change your Windows theme color to creative orange to see if it stirs up any inspiration? Just head over to Windows Settings > Personalization > Themes.
  8. Looking for a new way to present your ideas in a more visual and creative manner? Office apps now support 3D models, where you can insert, rotate and tilt these images within documents and presentations.
  9. There is no doubt that play is essential for creativity, which is why we’ve built Xbox capabilities within Windows 10 so that you can toggle between work and play easily. For those who are seeking pointers from fellow gamers, enjoy the flexibility to broadcast with Mixer, the easiest and most interactive way to stream your gameplay on Xbox One and Windows 10.
  10. With the Windows Fall Creators Update, Game Mode is now more powerful than ever before. With just a single tap, the feature unleashes your PC’s full processing power to make your gameplay as smooth as possible.
  11. It might sound counterintuitive, but a key aspect process that feeds creativity is drilling into repetitive tasks. After all, you can only break the rules in a meaningful way after you’re truly familiar with them. Take a shot at this with Cuphead, a classic run and gun action game exclusively available for Windows and Xbox, that will test the limits of your patience as you repeat level after level to figure out your enemy’s attack patterns and weaknesses.
  12. Bend your minds with a new reality in town. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, we are making it easier for you to immerse in a new reality with Windows Mixed Reality headset*. These are easy to setup, affordable and brings a new realm of experiences to broaden your creative perspectives.
  13. Explore new creative processes! The Six Thinking Hats, for example, is a simple and effective parallel thinking process that helps one be more productive, focused, and mindfully involved. Try creating this structure on your Sticky Notes for Windows 10 devices, so that it serves as a constant reminder to your creativity journey.
  14. Fun fact: An average person sits between 7 – 15 hours per day. Perhaps it’s time to take a walk and bring your Windows device outdoors, and open your eyes to new creative possibilities by taking pictures of new scenes to place 3D visuals in within Paint 3D.
  15. Hit a creative roadblock? We all have those moments. To kick start your creative gears, try checking out Remix3D, a collection of 3D models that you can download and modify for your next masterpiece.
  16. When it comes to developing a creative and focused mind, the pen is mightier than the keyboard. Research has found that people who write more are often better at grasping new concepts, and can stay in focus better. Start by taking notes with a digital pen instead of your keyboard on OneNote today.
  17. Try this exercise to flex your mind on Sketchpad:
    1. On a blank piece of canvas, draw 30 circles
    2. In 3 minutes, turn as many of these circles into recognizable objects, such as a smiley face, a soccer ball, a button or other round items
  18. What did you draw? No matter the result, the exercise helps stretch the limits of your imagination, challenging the speed, diversity and quantity of your ideas within a set timeframe.Is Pharell’s “Happy” a musical stimulant for creative minds? A study notes the connection between happy music and creativity. And with the upcoming iTunes and Spotify apps for Windows 10, you can start prepping your go-to playlist to juice up your creative powers!
  19. Review your creative journey easily with Windows 10 Timeline*, which will be available on a later date. Rewind and restore open programs and documents, allowing you to hop back to where you left off without breaking your creative flow.
  20. Having a proper rest is important to keep your creative juices flowing. Researchers have noted that an optimal sleep period is between 7 – 9 hours per day for adults. However, if you’re on a creative streak and don’t want to go to bed just yet, turn on the Night Light to reduce the amount of blue light flashing out of your PC. This will help you get a better night’s sleep once you log off and hit the pillows.
  21. While you embark on your creativity journey with Windows 10, it is equally important to safeguard your digital safety. Windows Defender gets better with the Fall Creators Update with behind-the-scenes defenses against newer threats that can derail your creativity processes.
Remember to have this feature switched on by going to Settings > Update & security > Windows Defender and turn on the toggle switch for real-time protection.

To find out more about the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and the slew of new, creative experiences it will bring, visit www.microsoft.com/windows


And that's it for today, hope you guys got a lot of tips that you'll apply on your daily routines. ;)

'Till next time!

They will also be bringing several academic schools and game development partners in their area to share their specialties to the public. They will also be inviting some of the top developers from different studios for a series of game development talks* where everyone can learn more on concept art, animation, programming and more.

The contract signing between the two companies was held recently in Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu, with Sun Life CEO and Country Head Riza Mantaring, Sun Life brand ambassador Piolo Pascual, Sunrise Founder Wilfred Uytengsu, and Sunrise General Manager Princess Galura in attendance.
“We recognize cycling’s growing popularity in the Philippines, and this is our share in helping encourage more people to get into the sport,” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa said. “Just as it is in our fun run, Sun Life Cycle PH will cater to different ages and will offer different categories.”

Sun Life Cycle PH will have a total of seven categories: Tricycle Ride (100 meters for 2-3 year olds), Kids’ Ride (500 meters for 4-5 year olds), Family Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 year olds with adult companion), Solo Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 years old), Short Distance Ride (20km for 10 years old and above), and Long Distance Ride (40km for 10 years old and above).

Wo-Nut opens 12th store at SM City North Edsa

Hey guys!

Last Saturday, August 26,2017, Wo-Nut opened their 12th store at SM City North Edsa foodcourt. Wo-nut is a unique product concept, and the first of its type here in the country, it's a waffle-donut hybrid, that's why it's called Wonut.

Here's a little history of Wo-nut, according to Sir Resty (President) and Ms.Anj (EVP) of Wo-nut corp, they conceptualized it way back 2014,  but they only started executing the business idea in 2015, now 2 years later they already have 12 existing stores in different key locations around the metro, and their target is to open 16 more before the year ends.

What's special about Wo-nut aside from their unique concept is that all the ingredients that they use are fresh and imported, that's a step up from your basic waffle or donut isn't!? And they don't just offer sweet flavors, they sell some savory wo-nut sandwiches as well.

Here are some pics from the opening of their SM North Edsa foodcourt Store;


Cutie patootie kids cutting the ribbon. :)

Of course a store opening will not be complete without the blessing.

A super fun Wo-nut eating contest for the first few tweens in line.

Look at those excited people waiting for the store to officially open.

They also gave away some free Wo-nuts to a few lucky customers who were at the start of the line.


And last but not the least, a photo of their best seller Wo-nut, Almond White.

And that's it for today!
I hope you guys liked it.

BTW if you want to have your own Wo-nut kiosk, they are looking for potential franchisees and you can have your own for as low as Php188K you can know more by following them on IG:@wonutcorp and fb.com/wonut.corp :)

'till next time!

BTW, for those who are not familiar with an aquathlon, it consists of a continuos, two-staged race involving swimming followed by running. Wow! that sounds more fun that your usual fun run, and it's something I would love to try if I have extra time for proper training. ;)


The Sun Life Aquathlon is designed to be the perfect race for the newbie who wishes to get his/her feet wet in multisport, while it gives the race-honed triathlete a variation in his/her training program.

There will be two(2) categories:
- The "Aqua Full" which features a 400-meter swim and a 5-km run.
- The "Aqua Lite" which consists of a 200-meter swim and a 3-km run.


Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer, Mylene Lopa started the program and talked about their mission to help Filipinos achieve lifetime financial security and live healthier lives, and the Sun Life Aquathlon.

Ms.Jaymie Pizarro was also there, she talked about GoWell, a wellness community created by Sun Life that promotes holistic wellness through a fit and active lifestyle, healthy eating, and living a balanced life.


A representative from the Sun Life Aquathlon Organizers,  Bike King Philippines, one of the country's trusted and leading multisport event organizers, explained to us the planned flow of the Aquathlon;

The race will kick off at the Makati Aqua Sports Arena (MASA), where aquathletes will start with the swim in the 50-meter long MASA pool, before heading to the transitionarea to don their running gear. After crossing the overpass that links MASA to the University of Makati (UMak), they will then complete the run in UMak's track, before finally making their way to the finish line.
