Bean Box with Vicky

I saw Vicky's post in FB wearing a Hanbok and I thought she was in Korea. She told me the photos were taken at Bean Box and asked me to visit it. Actually many of my friends have invited me to visit Bean Box in the past when it opened a few years ago but I was too busy. Now that it's summer both Vicky and I have free time so we decided to have our post Mother's Day celebration in this place.

We only had Clubhouse Sandwich and an aloe vera drink, which we had to go since we both had lunch earlier at separately.

The place is kawaii, very cute and instagrammable. Hanbok is free to wear but they require diners to order first and pay. One order per person is a MUST. You will all be asked to provide a valid identification card.

For those persons with difficulty walking, you might find it hard to reach the place since they are located on the fourth floor. No escalators nor elevators available within the building.

I can't say anything about the food since the sandwich was already soggy when it reached home. Maybe on our next visit, I will do a review on the menu and pricing.

Special thanks to Josh for helping us with photos and vids. Meantime, please do enjoy Vicky and my kalokohan for this video. We are moms just havin' fun. Ang mahal ng rent ng Hanbok sa Korea, at least at Bean Box free, bibili ka lang nga muna ng food nila😀

Blackberry is Back

“The Art of Particularity” press launch introduced two young and driven Filipinos to represent the BlackBerry KEY2 LE—the icon for all, which has become the preferred smartphone for the new generation and young leaders of tomorrow.

Simone Rota, a football star and humanitarian, he played for the Azkals and is now with Kaya. was not able to make it to the event because he has a game in Singapore. 

I came for this press launch for the second icon, whom I know personally to be a very friendly and pretty lady. She is Mela Sison Laxamana, Group Marketing Manager for Raintree Restaurants and Raintree Hospitality Group, currently handles 12 restaurants, five food parks, one hotel, and one household. This girl boss and icon for all is also known as a shoe-loving, cookie-eating lipstick junkie superstar. How does she manage to stay organized and productive? Mela shares, “With the help of my BlackBerry KEY2 LE, I’m able to get the job done.” She shares, “I specifically like the QWERTY feature because this makes me feel like I’m responding to my emails like I’m working on my laptop, and I get to respond in real time. This makes my work easier even when I’m out of the office.” Mela adds, “With my BlackBerry KEY2 LE, better workdays are at my fingertips!”

Both Mela and Simone agree that there are social phones for play and there’s the BlackBerry KEY2 LE—a productive work phone and indispensable tool of the trade to help you get things done efficiently. Indeed, the BlackBerry KEY2 LE is raising the bar to help you do more, different. Touch it. Feel it. Experience the rebirth of an icon Black is back with the launch of BlackBerry KEY2 and KEY2 LE.




Iconic design, reimagined Sleek and super modern, the KEY2 and KEY2 LE feature a diamond pattern, non-slip textured back, a 4.5- inch impact-resistant gorilla glass display, durable aluminum alloy frame, and the most intelligent BlackBerry keyboard ever. Redesigned with 20% larger keys and perfectly sculpted for more comfortable typing with the all-new speed key with 52 custom shortcuts, speeding you into action. Instead of just launching the clock, you can go straight to timer; instead of just opening your text messaging app you can go directly to composing a text message. The QWERTY keyboard is all about tactility and accuracy, not to mention that there’s just something uniquely satisfying when your fingertips glide over and hit those keys—unlike a glass keyboard which is prone to typographical errors, not to mention how difficult it is if not impossible to type without looking.

Take stunning photos with the BlackBerry’s dual rear camera with more control and better image quality, truly an impressive 12MP photo experience. Unsurpassed level of security and enhanced privacy you can control The BlackBerry’s locker is a private app you can access only through your fingerprint or password. You can store anything here and these will stay invisible to outside apps. Locker can also block screenshots and screen recorders. Putting your sensitive documents and apps like your banking app in the locker give them an added layer of security. Within locker is Firefox Focus for private browsing that blocks unwanted ads and automatically deletes your browsing history when you exit. A quick three-finger swipe on the screen gives you the privacy shade, a “peep-hole” feature you can use to read sensitive documents in public without worrying that your neighbors may see. You can even use your thumbprint to snap and save photos directly to locker where all your other secret stuff is. This fingerprint sensor is found right on the space bar, which is a smart way of maximizing space. With such advanced security and privacy features, and regular updates that protect it from the latest threats, no wonder the new BlackBerry has been touted as the most secure phone for 2019 by gadgethacks.com.
