Finally, I got the time to write about my annual visit at the Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, this year 2017, they are on its 21st year,  grabe sobra tagal na nila, there were a lot of rumors that this year might be the last event, but I did some research and there's a news write up and said that they will transfer to a new venue, in order to give way to the construction of a new hangar from the old venue, there are also news that the event is causing delays of some flights in Clark airport, but the news report says that according to an interview from the organizers that there are no ongoing flights whenever there are scheduled hot air balloon flights in the morning. So its impossible to say that the event is causing delays of any commercial flights.

The Philippines, once dubbed as Earth Hour Hero Country for having the world's most number of participants from 2009-2012, continues to gain a wider audience – thanks to private businesses like SM. With 60 malls spread across the country and 7 in China, the message of Earth Hour goes beyond the symbolic 60-minute light switch-off, and gets a chance to reach the malls' daily customers and visitors. SM's present record shows foot traffic of over four million customers a day.

MANG INASAL: What do Chefs Sandy Daza, Boy Logro and Rosebud Benitez have in common?

Wow! my cooking masters are in one pic!

Leave it to chefs to know what's really good and delicious.

When it comes to Filipinos' beloved halo-halo, Chefs Sandy Daza, Boy Logro and Rosebud Benitez can agree on one thing: they love Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo.

The three celebrated chefs had the special opportunity to taste the popular and well-loved Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo which is known for its creamy sarap goodness.

The verdict? Expert-approved.

The 'secret' is in the creamy milk made especially for Mang Inasal. It's not too sweet and definitely not bland too. It has the right level of creaminess which deliciously brings together all the ingredients so each spoonful of halo-halo just hits the spot.

Watch this video -
to find out more about Chefs Sandy, Boy and Rosebud's Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo experience.
