Manila, Philippines (26 November 2014) – When Jane Villanueva was a young girl, her grandmother, Alba, convinced her of two things: telenovelas are the highest form of entertainment, and women must protect their virginity at all costs. Now age 23, Jane is a driven young woman studying to become a teacher, nursing a dream to be a writer, and supporting herself with a job at a hot new Miami hotel.

Get your dream car with Carmudi

Want to buy the car of your dreams but you have limited options? Want to sell your car but your buyers are limited? Need that extra push with regards to expanding your exposure and marketing your automobile? Well Carmudi made all those fears and hesitations all go away because it addressed your dealer and buyer dilemmas by relaunching their website last week.

I was fortunate to be amongst the fewΒ  bloggers to be invited to this momentous event. The food was sumptuous, the place was very classy and sleek in presentation and the girls were very well dressed and were definite head turners during the course of the night. Also lucky winners got the elusive chance to drive a Ford car to any destination for the whole weekend! How awesome is that? πŸ™‚ They also doled out various loot bags which contained a very comfortable neck pillow which I immediately used to cushion my neck while driving along the congested lanes of Edsa. To give you a brief backgrounder on Carmudi here’s a little inside scoop.

Movie Review: If I Stay

I have always wanted to watch this film since everyone especially my girl friends had been gushing about it the minute it hit the cinemas. The plot was based on a best selling novel and it appeals to the emotions of the same audience of the book TFIOS.

It also tackles issues and emotions that areΒ  realistic and hard to bear for the faint of heart. It was just recently that I finally found the luxury of time to sit back and relax while watching this tear jerking movie.

To get a general idea I attached here the trailer of the movie. Enjoy watching πŸ™‚ Hope you watch it for yourselves too it’s a neat movie! πŸ™‚

I have read and pored over all the pages of this much talked about trilogy of the Hunger Games book by Suzanne Collins. I was hooked from the first novel and read on until I finished all three books.

I have also watched The Hunger Games to Catching Fire to the first part of the last book Mockingjay Part 1.Β  So when I heard that this movie was about to hit the cinemas I was eagerly waiting again in the front line to catch a glimpse if it’s cinematic portrayal would do justice to the book.

For those who haven’t watched the trailer yet. Here’s a quick one for you.

Food Review: Main Street

Since I was coding during this day I decided to go along with my friends as they tried out this new joint along the confines of the upscale Mckinley Hill in the Fort. Along the course of the ride we were all enjoying the friendly banter and the witty retorts from Kai and Bebs.

I parked in front of this joint and then headed off to the second deck where we were ushered in and seated.
