SHAKE SHACK Philippines: Menu, Prices and PH Exclusive Items!

Shake Shack Ph will open on May 10!

Here are the prices, menu, and exclusive items at the first Philippine Shake Shack located in Central Square BGC!

Not only are we excited with the food, the reasonable price points, but also the Philippine exclusive items! From Ube Shakes, Calamansi Limoneade and of course the yummy ube and calamansi pie concretes!

Shake Shack founded by Danny Meyer has been around since opening in 2004 in New York City and probably is best known for the cult following of its burgers and frozen custard shakes. It’s slow fast-food, so expect big flavors, and a pretty pricey bill not like your usual Mc Donald’s order. That’s mainly because they serve quality 100% Angus beef burgers.

Check out our top favorites…

Fly to Bangkok with the Love Bus A350! @flypal

Forty years ago, Philippine Airlines unveiled its most innovative plane at that time, the Airbus A300B4 proudly bearing the Love Bus “kiss mark” logo.

So fittingly, during PAL’s 5th anniversary, it is yet again another exciting time to fly with the revival of the Love Bus—the same iconic logo placed on their 5th ultra-modern A350 Airbus!

But what makes the A350 so special? The next-generation A350 incorporates a range of technological touchstones that improve both passenger experience and aircraft operations aboard long-haul routes. It is installed with more quiet Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines, the most fuel-efficient engines in service today. With its extra wide body, personal tv screen, free inflight wifi and heartfelt Pinoy hospitality, you’ll definitely fall in love with flying over and over again.

Airbus A350s currently offer business, premium economy and economy seats. Here’s my experience on the A350…

The Best of TAPENADE Restaurant @DiscoveryPrimea

Tapenade is one of our favorite restaurants in the metro for all-day dining and meetings with friends or business associates because of the salad bar and the Mediterranean take on the food. You can eat healthily and not be bloated after the meal. What’s more, each dish is something different from what’s usual in Manila.

Here’s what we like in the latest menu of Tapenade at Discovery Primea.

“Angels in America” Manila (Review) @ATEGasia

I must be honest. There would be two types of theater goers after watching the award-winning Angels in America by American playwright Tony Kushner: the one who would rave about the theatrical perfection of this groundbreaking masterpiece, and the one who got bored to death.

For some, they need to know what it is all about before committing to watching with friends. For me, when I watch plays, I usually go clueless about what it is all about, so as to have no biases. I let the story unfold, appreciate the narrative and finish the show with an internal reflection of what it means to me.

I’ll let you know what I think at the end of this post.

 

ANGELS IN AMERICA
Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati
March 22 to April 7, 2019
For tickets, visit www.ticketworld.com.ph

List of Volunteer Organizations (💯Legit) in the Philippines! #GOVolunteer

Performing Arts and Recreation Center (PARC) Volunteers

Volunteering is both a selfless give-and-take act because you work for free to contribute to the community but in return, you discover yourself while your love tank is filled by the people you helped.

But these days, you have to be careful about which volunteer groups to join because some exploits the community they work with by making them dependent on volunteers instead of making the community better.

iVolunteer Philippines is the leading organization that connects volunteers to the rightful NGOs and communities for the last 10 years. Every year, they hold a GO! Volunteer Expo to showcase and meet the different volunteer groups. This is a great opportunity also for volunteers to look for where they can offer their skills to the group that would benefit the most.

This year, the GO! Volunteer Expo will happen at Glorietta Activity Center on April 6 & 7, 2019.

This time, iVolunteer Philippines is making it an even bigger event that will celebrate everyday Filipino heroes and the timeless act of giving back. iVolunteer believes that when given the opportunity, Filipinos are always willing to answer the call for help.

Here’s the complete list of Volunteer Communities that you can join:

GILARMI Lounge: One of the Best Hotel Lounges in Manila @DiscoveryPrimea

Gilarmi Cocktail Lounge, the lobby lounge of Discovery Primea, is one of the best hotel lounges in Manila.

Usually, hotel lounges are just token spots for guests to hang out in and not really places to come looking for quality. But we were surprised by how good the quality of the comfort food was paired with gin and tonic or cocktails.

Here’s what we love at Gilarmi Lounge.

 

Gilarmi Lounge
Ground Floor, Discovery Primea Hotel
6749 Ayala Avenue, Urdaneta, Makati City
Operating Hours: 7 AM to 11 PM daily
