It wouldn't be Cosmo-ish without sizzling games like this: Marshmallow Kiss, a relay game where contestants have to pass marshmallows using only their mouths.

Banana Snack Game. The girls hand are tied behind their backs. The guys are blindfolded and then made to spin in circles for a few seconds. They the hunks try to feed the girls the 2 bananas they're holding.

Funny Bones Game was a bit like twister minus the Twister mat.

Western Union, Edsa Central Branch

I am quite aware of Western Union as I've done couple of money transfers in the past.
Last May 17 I came across this Western Union Branch located at the 1st Level Sto. Cristo St., Pavillion Complex, EDSA Central, Mandaluyong City.
Lito Morales is the frontliner who assisted me that day. He is super courteous and helpful. He elevated the meaning of Customer Service. If more frontliners will be as effective as he is, many clients will be happier paying their bills.

This eBIZ serves free coffee, juice or water.

They even set up a television so clients may be entertained while waiting.

THE WHITE HAT Italian Frozen Yogurt

I've tasted a lot of frozen yogurt there is in Manila, it's The White Hat Italian Frozen Yogurt that captivated my taste. I like White Hat's creaminess and super soft feel on the tongue.

Last May 2, 2010, White Hat launched 2 new flavors concocted by no other than Ms. Miriam Quiambao. A portion of that day's earning will go to Real Life Foundation. Real Life Foundation exists to honor God by serving the poor and improving their lives through educational assistance, leadership development, and community service.

I'm so into White Hat Yogurt that even my daughter, Julia, started liking it too.

The nicest and friendliest White Hat guy, Ron Ramos of Shangri-La Branch. Always having that smile on his face even during peak hours.

White Hat's soft-spoken but super cool Marketing Manager, Erick Chao

White Hat t-shirt is now available for P300.00 for the benefit of Real Life Foundation.

Me, winning in the raffle with White Hat's event organizers.

Can't get enough of White Hat Yogurt so the next day after the White Hat Shangri-La event I visited White Hat-SM Baguio Branch.

Ummmm, my favorite White Hat Yogurt with strawberry and cherry toppings.

The girls of White Hat Baguio. Shy but super nice.
