First Glimpse Inside City of Dreams Manila's Dreamplay

In less than three weeks, you'll see a new fun attraction to open at the heart of Metro Manila. Perfectly scheduled for summer, City of Dreams Manila will make their interactive indoor park Dreamplay open to kids and the kids at heart.

Earlier today, we were lucky to be among the first people to join the second simulation of the indoor entertainment center. Just at the end of COD's posh shopping corridor, The Boulevard, is the entrance of Dreamplay. It is located on the second level of City of Dreams' main building or the Nobu Hotel building.

Caramel vs Hazelnut for Summer's Ultimate Iced Coffee from Starbucks

Are you feeling the sudden rise of temperature? If a few weeks ago 8 AM is still chilly, it was really scorching hot by as early as 10 AM for the past three days. Yes. Summer is here, catching us all by surprise. This only means, higher electricity bills, more sunblock and more cold beverages. 

And if we talk about iced drinks, our favorite coffee brand is ready. Starbucks' signature espressos: Hazelnut and Caramel can now be ordered in thirst-quenching cold servings.

Frappuccinos should be your go-to blends to beat the summer heat but while they're mixed with creamy mascarpone, milk, whipped cream and other flavorings like a caramel flan drizzle among others, traditional and discriminating coffee drinkers would always have their coffee mix as straightforward as possible. They want the taste of real coffee beans in espressos but for summer, they can still get that taste but only served cold.

Aicelle Santos is Class A

Regine Velasquez appeared on stage and told Aicelle Santos how she's happy to see the latter grew up to be talented and beautiful. "Dalaga ka na. Nakikipag-sex ka na noh?" 

That drew laughter from the crowd. But it wasn't the highlight of the night. Their flawless vocals, as expected, convinced everyone to give a standing ovation, ending their perfect duet of Wicked's theme "For Good" beautifully. Then there were Kyla, Gian Magdangal, the hilarious cast of the musical Rak of Aegis and the timeless Celeste Legaspi. Duet after duet, Aicelle's singing voice remained consistent all concert long.

Lee Min Ho is in Manila for KyoChon

"Boys Over Flowers", "City Hunter" and "The Heirs", all of which were shown on Philippine primetime TV, have catapulted Lee Min Ho as one of our favorite Korean stars. Kwon Sang-woo (Stairway To Heaven) may have been my personal favorite Korean actor but it's hard to forget Gu Jun-pyo or Ho's character in his breakout TV show "Boys Over Flowers."

Today, Lee Min Ho is back in the Philippines to originally promote his movie "Gangnam Blues", a socio-political commentary on the 1970's real estate development of the Seoul's Gangnam district. He is here with one more mission though, to re-introduce to us a fried chicken store KyoChon. 

We were there at the opening of the store's Greenhills branch which also served as the venue for Lee Min Ho's Meet and Greet activity. Of course, I am sharing the moments to you Korean soap fans with the photos below.

Almost Summer

Uniqlo OOTD

It's almost March! It means, you can wear your shorts again 24/7. 

While jeans are always our go-to clothing item, it's just nicer to go out in a good pair of shorts on a beautiful day. Comfort is the main reason. I'm not sure about you but I find conversations over an ice cold drink more spontaneous when I'm wearing the most comfortable shorts. It's like lounging around in your own bedroom even if you're out with friends in a coffee shop. 

Uniqlo has pulled out a new set of long sleeves with floral prints. I'm sure you've seen what I am wearing in Uniqlo shops if you've visited them for the past two weeks. This white top is out with versions of blue, green, yellow and red prints. They have also have other prints available now.
