Teriyaki Boy Unveils New Look

It used to be just black. That's how I remember Teriyaki Boy - Tokyo inspired Ramen House. The popular Japanese casual dining restaurant, who's always been known for authentic yet affordable Japanese cuisine, has recently been acquired by Max's Group, Inc. (yes, the company that serves the best chicken in the country).

With the proliferation of Japanese restaurants in the Philippines, MGI is making sure that Teriyaki Boy will still be up on its game by unveiling it's new look at its flagship store, Teriyaki Boy Glorietta. Other branches soon to follow the new design.

I was privilege to have been invited to feel the ambiance, and of course to partake the sumptuous Japanese food that Teriyaki Boy has been serving for the past 13 years. The first difference I noticed is the logo. It now feature an icon of a boy with a headband in a shape that is reminiscent of the elegant forms of Japanese calligraphy.

Wood is part of my house interior so Teriyaki Boy's seamless use of wood was a feast to my eyes! I particularly like the long table where family, friends and peers can enjoy eating while talking.

Though I cannot comprehend what's written on the ceiling, 
its vibrant mix of colors brings those happy thoughts. 

I wondered if they'll change the recipe but MGI has not strayed from the signature chicken teriyaki, it's still grilled to perfection and topped with a savory sauce that is distinctly Teriyaki Boy and one of the best in town!


Under MGI, I'm pretty sure Teriyaki Boy will go through upgrading of not just the products but more so with the service to build a better, happier and yummier dining experience. 

Breeze and Jollibee's Clean-up Drive for Maaga ang Pasko

Breeze and Jollibee's Clean-up Drive for Maaga ang Pasko brought together media, bloggers, volunteers and showbiz personalities, namely Tintin Bersola-Babao, Regine Tolentino and Betina Carlos together in cleaning books and washing stuffed toys before Santa Aga send the stuff to the children this Christmas.

Breeze and Jollibee are targetting to wash and clean more than 500,000 plush toys donations with Breeze ActiveBleach. With Breeze 1 Laba Guarantee, the old toys are transformed to good as new before they are delivered to beneficiaries.

This event is close to my heart for many reasons. First, because it's an advocacy to make children happy. Second, the venue's near my place. Third, because three of the celebrities I have worked in the past are part of this clean-up drive.

 I first met Regine Tolentino when I guested in Unang Hirit last 2004.

Worked with Bettina Carlos at Pop Talk last year

Celebrate a more meaningful Christmas and be a part of the Maaga ang Pasko Campaign. Aside from dropping donations in Maaga ang Pasko Boxes in Jollibee stores nationwide, anyone can also take part in the campaign by making online donations at
