New Year's Eve Party in Manila 2010

12/30/15 Update: New Year's Eve Manila 2016: Awesome Guide to a Dazzling New Year!

Germany World Pyro Olympics-6

Where will you be this New Year's Eve?

If you want to celebrate in a hotel, SPOT.ph’s New Year’s Eve Guide: Where to Ring in 2010, and Business World's Welcoming the New Year articles would surely help you out. If we were to celebrate New Year in a hotel, we would either be in the legendary Manila Peninsula's New Year’s Eve Gala Ball and Dinner Buffet (P5,900++) or Dusit Thani's Special New Year’s Eve Crossover Dinner Buffet (P4,000 net). These are the the two coolest hotels to check out.

Jo Koy in Manila!

jo koy

I was virtually introduced to Jo Koy by Benji Reyes through Facebook. I've been watching Jo Koy's stand-up comedy set online this holiday season. I can't wait for his first comedy show in Manila on January 21! I would agree with Benji that he is better than Rex Navarrete.

But, just a warning, some of his jokes are For Adults Only. He talks about taboo things -- like his son's ting ting. For parents like us, we can relate. :) Really funny! :)

He seems to be virtually unknown in Manila (based on an informal poll I did with Manila-based OAP readers). But most Filipinos in the US know him -- even my brother in LA.

Jo Koy guested in Jay Leno's Tonight Show, proudly wearing a shirt with a Philippine Flag. We love him for being proud to be Pinoy. :) Check out his stand-up comedy set in Jokes.com below:

Shoot a Real Leaf, Win a Nano!

Sponsored by Coca Cola's Real Leaf Green Tea
Contest Duration: December 28, Monday to 11.59pm January 30, Saturday

A Toast to the Green Life! (see: Real Leaf Photo Album)

We brought home Real Leaf Green Tea as pasalubong for Aidan and Joshua. I was able to convince the two boys to do a photo shoot near the pool for this photo contest. If you have toddlers at home, you will know how difficult it is to convince little boys to do such a session. I'm glad the boys were game to do it. :) I can't wait to have another boy to complete the Three Kings!

Now, it is your turn to capture an awesome picture of a person drinking Real Leaf and get the chance to win an 8GB iPod Nano!

Your "La Vie Boheme" Moment

Contest Duration: December 19, Saturday to 11.59pm December 27, Sunday)


I just watched the Sneak Peek of Rent Manila with the 2010 Cast. It was a very nostalgic moment for us, the "Rent" generation. I remembered how the songs truly inspired me -- from pursuing the love of my life -- Rache, to following my passion in life -- blogging about the beauty of the Philippines.

So for the next RENT Contest, can you share your own "La Vie Boheme" moment?

To enter the contest, you just have to create a Blog Post or a Facebook note and answer this:
"What's your 'La Vie Boheme' moment?" and mention the Feb 6, 2010 RENT OAP Show. Please enter the link of the Blog Post or Facebook note in the comments section of this entry.

The best entry will win:
- Two (2) Balcony Tickets for the February 6, 2010, 8pm show!
- A Black RENT Shirt for Women (XL Size)
- Rent Manila 2010 Poster
