For the past decade, Our Awesome Planet’s “Ultimate Taste Test” has been the incubator and launching platform for many of today’s most popular and influential food entrepreneurs.

Aidan is at Grade 8 now and we are starting to consider options on where to send him to college. I like our sons to establish their roots in Manila, studying in the best university for Engineering, Computer Science and Multimedia Arts—De La Salle University.

But I’m considering Spain for college or masters for our boys. Here’s why…

Cove Manila’s “What’s Good Sundays“, starts from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM with unlimited scrumptious food and cocktail drinks, and the fun doesn’t end there, come the gorgeous Manila Bay sunset rolls in, the club is transformed into a party scene from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM with good music and company!
It was an unforgettable experience to be in Southeast Asia’s biggest indoor beach and nightclub that took our Sunday brunch to a whole new level…

Set your sights on a realm never before seen as the strangest of experiences and boldest of imaginations take reign at Wanderland Magic. Karpos Multimedia instills the magic yet again this MARCH 9 & 10, 2019 at the Filinvest CIty Events Grounds, Alabang with its 22 act line-up, 9 of which have already breached into sight.
