The Joy of Sharing Bubbleman with Mela Sison

I meet a lot of Marketing Managers and PRs everyday. There's this one young lady that stands out among them. She's vibrant and always with a big smile for everyone. Her bangs, oh how I envy her bangs! She is Mela Sison. Mela is one cool, happy and kind person. I'm her fan when it comes to fashion and I always look forward to her OOTDs and happy posts in FB and IG.

Mela is the Marketing Manager of Raintree Restaurants, which includes Museum Cafe, Stella, The Rocketroom, Kabila, Simple Lang, Terraz, Chelsea, Chelsea Kitchen, Momo, Mr. Jones.

What can you give to someone who already has everything? Mela can buy all the nice shoes, bags, accessories and clothes she wants. The Joy of Sharing Bubbleman with Mela Sison is important to me because I believe in these products and I believe in Mela's kindness. Bubbleman is an appropriate gift for the woman who runs the above mentioned restos, andami nilang hugasan diba!


I'm a proud shifter form a popular and expensive brand to an eco-friendly and affordable Bubbleman Dishwashing Liquid.

The Joy of Sharing Bubbleman

Christmas is the happiest time of the year but I must admit that it's the craziest time, too. Imagine thinking and planning gifts for hundreds of people - from clients, business tenants, guards, teachers, relatives, friends and family. Ang sakit sa ulo!

This year, instead of giving shirts, wallets, shoes, belts and what have you, I have decided to do "The Joy of Sharing Bubbleman".

Bubble Man is a dishwashing liquid, a product of Mikewell World of Household Products Company, that’s available in local supermarkets nationwide. It is an eco-friendly, biodegradable product made from coconut-derived surfactants. It comes in  three (3) variants: Calamansi, Lemon and Antibac, and various sizes — Php32.50 (55 ml), Php65.00 (20 ml), and Php120.00 (880 ml). It is safe and gentle on hands and doesn’t dry the skin; as their tagline says, "mabilis banlawan, banayad sa kamay".

I've learned about Bubbleman just last July and I must say, I'm a proud shifter from a popular and expensive brand (na kapangalan ko pa!) to an eco-friendly and affordable Bubbleman Dishwashing Liquid.
