Image
Time has stood witness to the centuries-long bond between our country and Espana. They have colonized us long enough to instill some family values, cultural and faithful traditions that we hold so dear today. In the next few days, that bond would soon be rekindled but in a grander, more festive and flavorful way as we celebrate theMadrid Fusion Manila 2015. Check out the artsy upbeat TVC above.

About Madrid Fusion It is a yearly conference and trade show where the greatest chefs, entrepreneurs and tycoons in the industry come together and build the future of food in Madrid.

Watch Why Manila Motorists Had a Great Morning #awesomebrand

Image
City life is something dreadful for the everyday motorist. Though there are beautiful reasons to smile and welcome the day, we can't help but linger about things to do at home, stressing about tasks to complete at work and, yes, frown upon the dragging traffic that makes mornings the worst part of the day for some. Then there comes a fastfood chain who made the most pleasant surprise in a PR stunt that brought joy in the most unexpected of ways.

Did You Know You Are Losing Four Days Every Month, Here’s Why

Image
Filipino motorists, apparently, spend over a thousand minutes each week on making decisions alone. At least that’s what a recent study reveals. 

We might not notice it but if we look at the bigger picture, we dedicate a large part of our lives unknowingly just to scratch our head stressing over life’s small unnecessary details.

A nationwide study by Shell publicized that Filipinos make over 30 conscious decisions each day that could have been dedicated to more important things like spending time with family, reaching organizational goals in your career, finding ways to expand your business, and laughing out loud with friends. As a firm that aims to make their customers’ lives easier, they are currently looking into ways in providing more value through introducing products that we can rely on.



With a lot of pressures about modern city living, our evolving needs have been the top priority of today’s top service and product providers.


We should be conscious even in our small actions from n…

He shares the hardships they had to go through when the most unfortunate thing happened to our country.
