Bohol Fair at Glorietta Mall

I haven't been to Bohol but I'm looking forward to visit this enchanting place next year. Bohol province is dubbed as the eco-cultural tourism capital with its fascinating  Chocolate Hills, pristine and white sand beaches in Panglao and  Anda.  It is also home to the well-loved Tarsier, considered the smallest and oldest primate in the world. Aside from the iconic destinations, the province is surrounded by caves, tranquil rivers, fascinating water falls, marine sanctuaries, mangroves and diving sites.

If you haven't seen Bohol like me,  there will be Bohol Fair at Glorietta Mall on Dec. 8-10. The travel fair will launch its new and exciting tourist destinations with rock bottom prices for airfares, hotels and resorts. Bohol's new branding “Behold...BOHOL,”  will also be formally launched to position the province as a destination that exudes a sense of awe in every visitor.

The three-day event is the first time ever that tourism sector in Bohol comes together in a massive campaign to entice tourists to visit. It is part of the Bohol Tourism Action Plan developed through the collaboration of the United States Agency for International Development through its Advancing Philippine Competitiveness Project (USAID-COMPETE), the Department of Tourism (DOT), the United Nations-World Tourism Organization (UN-WTO), and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) as well as local tourism stakeholders.

At least 50% discount in accommodation, tours and other travel essentials in Bohol will be offered during the three-day travel fair.  Boholano products will likewise be on sale. The travel fair will open in a grand program featuring the world-famous Loboc Children’s Choir. The chorale group will have a nightly concert during the three-day event.

TeleTech's 17th Site in Araneta Center

I've always wanted to see a call center office. I finally got to do that last November 28, 2014 at TeleTech's 17th site in Gateway Tower, Araneta Center, Quezon City.  The new location is highly accessible with several modes of transport availble in and around Araneta Center's 35-hectare commercial are with the addition of TeleTech-Araneta to the company's list of delivery centers, TeleTech is staying true to its commitment of bringing jobs closer to as many Filipino ad possible.

As an advocate of breastfeeding, I applaud Teletech for providing a lactation room! I quit the corporate world in 2003 because I chose to stay home and take care of my twin kids. With Teletech's lactation room, nursing moms can comfortably save their breast milk for they even have mini ref. And the purple couch is so comfortable for moms who'd like to give the best milk for their babies while they continue to work outside of home.

Although high tech, Teletech's Grab and Go canteen reminds me of that honesty store in Batanes,   where you there's no seller any more. All you have to do is get what you want or need, and pay. 

TeleTech was founded in 1982, it is a leading global providet of analytics-driven, technology-enabled customer experience solutions. The Company offers an integrated platform that combines consulting. technology, care and growth services to simply and personalize interactions that build deep engagement between people and brands.

TeleTech Araneta is currently hiring at least 100 new employees to fill customer setvice and business support roles. New hires will join pioneer programs, gain access to TeleTech's comprehensive pay and benefits package, and immerse in a corporate culture invested in personal development. New hires this season can qualify to win 100,000 worth of prizes from Abenson's  Appliances, if hired by December 31,  2014. For those interested to apply at TeleTech, they may visit or email with an updated resume. Applicants may also apply personally by walking in a 15/F Getway Towe,mAraneta Center.

P5 Concept

Learned a new way to earn while buying the products you need at P5 Concept last week. P5 Concept  Marketing, Inc. is a 100% Filipino owned corporation engaged in the distribution of various products, from home, health and beauty. I went to their office in Quezon City but if you Google you will be directed at Unit 6, 2nd Floor, Mclane Centre, National Highway, San Antonio, San Pedro. 

The idea of this company is great, to help others, but this isn't the kind of business for me. If you want to know more about this company: Phone: (+632) 553 6819. Email:;

This event was a hit to me because I got to see two FPJs:

Co-blogger, Florencio Jusay who's better known in the blogging world as FPJ - his initials. And FPJ impersonator, whom I first met at Rise and Shine.

Ariel Brought Higanteng Linis, Saya, Kantahan, Kainan at Higantes Festival

I haven't been to Angono so Martin's invite to cover Ariel detergent's Higanteng Linis, Higanteng Fiesta event immediately appealed to me even if it was a Sunday.  I felt overflowing excitement knowing I'd be able to experience Higantes Festival.  By the way, for my readers who are not familiar, Higantes Festival is Angono's joyous fiesta celebrated the 23rd of November in honor of San Clemente. It is highlighted by parading "Higantes", paper-mache giants measuring four to five feet in height.

Upon alighting the van, I rushed to take photo of the giant paper-mache holding Ariel pack.

While covering the event, I heard someone calling my name. I looked back, it's Mang Paul - our friendly neighborhood school service driver at Angels School. He was there to help the caterer, Mabel Leon, who's my former neighbor. What a small world, eh!

The event hosts, DJ Cha Cha & DJ Charles of MOR 101.9, 
brought fun and laughter from start to end.

Higanteng kainan started from this giant palayok. Dito nila iniluto ang lahat ng pagkain, hehehe! 

Games like bring me and raffle kept the participants on their toes. 
Two lucky winners brought home P4,000 each!

In between the program, I sneaked to talk to some people for I believe that the real soul of any place resides on its inhabitants. It was a joy to know more about Angono thru them.

Shared my snack to mom and daughter.

Bought mani and sweet beans to manang as pasalubong.

And so the party started when Teddy Corpuz of Rocksteddy came out!

It was my first time to meet Teddy so, piktyur-piktyur before and after his performance.

The event was not just about the world’s leading detergent that epitomizes superior stain removal since 1999.  Ariel brought higanteng linis, saya, kantahan, kainan at Higantes Festival that made the people of Angono happy. Watch the videos I uploaded and feel the fun I experienced.

Recycled Gift Bags

With so much events, I bring home a lot of paper bags. I don't throw it away. It's that time of the year when I need those brown bags! All you need, old catalogs or magazines, glue and scissors.
