Awesome Planner 2012 - The Food and Travel Guide

Awesome Planner 2012 - Food and Travel Guide

Dear Traveling Foodie, 

Mabuhay from Our Awesome Planet!

2012 is the year of the Foodie Road Trips. There's no better way to have a grand year than by experiencing the awesome foodie havens that our country has to offer. This planner has been designed to help you maximize the full potential of your road trips.

I would like to thank all those who supported the first release of the Awesome Planner. I have incorporated all the suggestions in this release. I hope you like this new product designed with the foodie in mind.

Awesome Planner 2012 Cover

The 2012 Awesome Planner has five (5) main sections:

OAP Vision Board

1. Travel Vision Board - Where would you go on a trip today if you had no personal or financial constraints? Claim that road trip or dream destination by either drawing or pasting pictures on the Vision Board. Each day, I encourage you to visualize in your heart the feelings you have while you are in that destination. Release that feeling into the universe and let it be.

Awesome Calendar

2. 2012 Awesome Calendar of the Philippines - All the major 2012 Philippine holidays, festivals, fiestas, local liturgical events and other awesome happenings are nicely integrated in the monthly calendar and the weekly pages of the planner. If you are planning your trips throughout the year, this calendar should be the first one you consult.

Here is the updated 2012 Awesome Calendar of the Philippines.

Monthly Road Trips

3. 12 Awesome Road Trips in 2012 - Each month, we feature a road trip destination that we feel is the best place to visit, given the season. We highlight the not-to-be-missed places and the yummy food to try and discover. We also give you insider tips and secrets to maximize your travel experience. In other words, we want you to have the trip of a lifetime each month!

February 2012 - The Allure of Baler 
March 2012 - Bicol Love

weekly pages

4. Weekly Travel Pages - This is composed of the weekly calendar on the left and the notes page on the right. The calendar helps you fix your priorities each week. The notes page is where you capture your insights and feelings in journal form. You could also make it into a scrapbook page where you paste pictures or tiny mementos of your trips.

Awesome 100 Restos

5. 100 Awesome Restos - This is my updated list of 100 go-to restaurants based on our family’s awesome dining experiences. We considered the cuisine, the ambiance and that elusive x-factor that makes every foodie rave about it.

I hope you enjoy this planner as much as we had fun making it. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the planner, just email me at

I'll be visiting Manila in Dec/Jan and would like to buy your very well-thought of planner. Is there a way to reserve one and I could pay and pick it up, say in beginning January?
Many thanks

I'll surely get one of this. I was thinking of purchasing the Filed Planner kaso I find this cuter. Dadaan ako later sa Distrito to buy myself one of these. Sana meron na nito doon. :)

Hi Anton, may available planners ba at Soderno or Mercato so we can buy there na lang or we have to reserve and pay it first muna before we can get the planner?

Yes you can buy there directly in Mercato, Soderno or Distrito.

I will definitely buy this =)

Great! I'll ask my friend to buy me one at Soderno later... =)

My friend just called and he is now at Soderno kaso wala po daw yung booth nyo...

Please go to the Human Nature booth please

Got my planner last Friday night and it's awesome!!! Thanks Anton...

Thanks Kristin :) 

Anton, will there be coupons on this 2012 Planner?
May I know the list if ever there are?



Will there be coupons on this 2012 Planner?
If there are, can I check the list?



Hi Apple,

We dont have coupons on this planner for now because I believe it is a conflict with my Awesome 100 list. Ill figure out how to have a coupon maybe next year.


Good Day Sir Anton!

I just bought the Awesome Planner 2012. As i browse the resto list, i noticed that in the chinese resto part, there no one coming from the binondo area. Is it intentional or honest mistake? Because we troop there once a month and it's really a food heaven. Ying ying, Lan Zhou La Mian, Dong Bei, Sincerity. Thanks!

Yes you are right. I intentionally did not include any Binondo places. I love Ying Ying, Dong Bei and Sincerity. Sige, we will include them in the list and maybe expand the Awesome 100 list.

Got my planner already! :) Posted about it here too! Thanks so much for this!

Do you still have available planners?

Yes we still do have stocks po

Sent from Mobile

Can you please reserve 1 for me? I'll be sending payment tomorrow and will email deposit slip.
Thank you.

OK Shylz, we will reserve one for you... Please email once you have paid it.

Hi Anton, I have already emailed my deposit slip.
Thank you.

Hi Anton,

I just want to ask if Distrito would be open on Dec. 29? I'm planning to buy one at that date but I'm afraid it would be closed due to the holiday season. Thanks! :)

Got the planner already, AWESOME talaga! The best thing was, I got a bonus tshirt unexpectedly for free!

For those who don't have planners yet, this is a very good choice! Grab one now, for you, and your friends & family!

Yes Distrito will be open on Dec 28, 29, 30

Is this still available, Sir Anton? :)

Yes it is available pa.

This January hopefully.

Is it now available on local bookstores? or is it available this friday (January 6) at Distrito?
