Outbreak Apocalypse by Outbreak Manila is the longest-running zombie fun run in Manila. Now on it’s the seventh installment runners were given a surprise of not only outrunning the zombies but also conquering their inflatable obstacle course.
Here’s how we ran for our lives and maybe screamed like kids…
Wonderfruit, an international Music & Arts Festival set in Thailand's backpacker heartland Siam Country Pattaya. For 4-days, the festival grounds are transformed into a hippiefied new world with a focus on advocating creative cultures, eco-friendliness, and sustainable living. You could say, it has the same change-making concept as to Philippine's very own Malasimbo.
With its reputation of being sin city, you'd be surprised that Pattaya is far from that, with it's lush hills, creeks and well-manicured lawns reminding you of Coachella. Festival goers are to expect a fun-packed schedule with tons of exciting music line-up, yummy feasts, fitness classes, art workshops and nature activities stored for the whole family.
Here's what to expect during Wonderfruit's 4-days of festivities on December 17-20…
Pepita’s Kitchen Project Wheelchair Fund-Raising is a 12-course Lechon Degustation with each course presented by the best chefs and pastry bakers in Manila.
Their passion project started with Dedet and her two daughters, Lileya and Liyora, raising funds to donate wheelchairs as a legacy to their sister Lauren.
With a humble beginning of selling ButterBeer and Chocolate Happiness (Hot Choco) in school fairs, turned into a beautiful full packed 12-course Lechon Degustation at Manila Hotel’s Champagne Room, with successfully raising funds for 150 wheelchairs (P3,500 per wheelchair) for the less fortunate people with disabilities.
Here’s what the chefs prepared for Project Wheelchair’s 12-course degustation…

Foodies love the signature Hanjuku cheesecake by Kumori, the cheesecake is characterized as being light and fluffy, compared to the the American version that is dense and heavy.
The half-baked cheesecake with cream cheese center comes in a palm-size treat, they are best enjoyed when relished in small bites. Notice the mousse-like texture, it's a delightful treat nothing too sweet or too creamy.
I also like the Krone which is a combination of cones and croissants filled fresh daily with creamy custard in the store.
Congratulations for winning the top spot in Ultimate Taste Test 2015!
