Effective Business Signages by M&G Global Ads

First impressions are the most lasting. When meeting prospective employers or clients for the first time, these people will remember the way you appear during your first encounter. It is imperative, therefore, that you look and act your (outmost) best on such occasions. The same is true with business. If you want people to notice you, then you should create a lasting impression in the minds of your target audience. Apart from a good company name and reputation, you also have to make sure that your business signage works for you.

Sumptuous Dinner at Applebee’s Grill & Bar

The quintessential American restaurant Applebee’s Grill & Bar finally opened its first Philippine location in Bonifacio Global City last Tuesday. I know my husband will enjoy Applebee’s ribs like I did when I was invited to try their sumptuous food offerings during their special media preview held earlier this month, so that’s where we went last Saturday.

Our young man enjoying his Pizzadilla

We ordered Pork Ribs, Fiesta Lime Chicken, Pizzadilla and Triple Chocolate Meltdown.

Pork Ribs (Half), Php650.00

I was right! Hubby loved Applebee’s Pork Ribs! He said it’s one of the tastiest and juiciest pork ribs he has ever tasted. The ribs were so tender, too! These Pork Ribs are served with corn on the cob, French fries and coleslaw with four choices of sauce (honey BBQ sauce, smoky chipotle, spicy sweet Asian chili and Korean BBQ sauce). We highly recommend this!

Fiesta Lime Chicken, Php395.00

My order was Fiesta Lime Chicken is fiesta-style grilled chicken with lime sauce, Mexi-ranch and Jack cheddar cheese, served with crispy tortilla strips, Mexican rice and pico de gallo. This is slightly spicy, but that didn’t stop our son from trying it and asking for more.

Pizzadilla, Php150.00

Our son said he’d have the Pizzadilla, one of the kids’ meals at Applebee’s. This is flour tortilla filled with melted Jack cheddar cheese and marinara sauce, served with French fries. It’s slightly crispy on the outside but soft, warm and gooey on the inside. He enjoyed it! As a matter of fact, his food was gone in a jiffy.

Triple Chocolate Meltdown, Php295.00

To cap off our delicious dinner, we tried their Triple Chocolate Meltdown. This is rich and moist chocolate cake with a fudge-filled center, served with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge. Yummy!

My boys have given their verdict. They love the food at Applebee’s, plus the huge servings. The waitstaff are uber- friendly and accommodating, too. We will definitely be back!

Review of Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel

When I and two mommy blogger friends (Mommy Olga and Mommy Vix) dropped by the House of Obagi (HOO) in Robinsons Galleria for the Red Hot Sale 2015 bloggers event last August 1, we were given special tokens by HOO’s Vice President for Marketing, Ms. Eileen Marcelo. We each got an Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel and Obagi Nu-Derm Toner. I started using these two products right away. However, I haven’t been consistent in applying the toner after cleansing, so I’ll just share in this blog post my experience using the Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel which I’ve been using every day for more than a month now.

Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel (60 ml), Php1,250

The first time I tried Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel, I was hooked! I love how gentle it is and how it thoroughly cleans the skin, plus the after feel.

 photo DSCN8430_zpsfhuj7nec.jpg

Ingredients: Herbs, natural cleansers, aloe vera

How to use: Apply a small amount to damp face (and neck if you want), massage the cleanser into your face, then rinse completely.

What I Love about Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel
• It is soap-free.
• It is ideal for normal to oily skin.
• It is mildly scented (sweet, fresh and fruity).
• It is gentle on the skin.
• It contains natural ingredients like alfalfa extract (purifies complexion), borage extract (tones and conditions skin and regulates oil production), and aloe vera (helps reduce inflammation).
• It thoroughly cleanses the skin of impurities, oil and makeup.
• It leaves the skin soft and non-greasy.
• It is economical. Only a small amount is needed to clean the entire face.

The Downside
• Php1,250 might be a little too much for a 60-ml bottle. In my personal experience, however, I can say that it is money well spent. I have been using my 60-ml cleanser since the first week of August, and there is still a whole lot left that will probably last until October.

I am loving what Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel does to my skin! And yes, I will buy another bottle again.

Linggo ng Wika 2015

For the celebration of Linggo ng Wika last August 24, 2015, Grade 4 pupils were asked to wear Filipino costumes in school. Justin wore a Maranao costume that we bought at the mall.

 photo DSCN8378_zpscm9lpjqt.jpg

The costume does not come with an inner shirt. Justin wears a white undershirt here so that he would not feel cold inside their classroom. He also has a tobao on his head. A tobao is a traditional headwear for men made of cloth with geometric or floral designs or Arabic calligraphy. He is also wearing native slippers and a simple tribal necklace to match his outfit.

Maranaos (also Maranaws) are what we call the people of Lanao, a predominantly Muslim region in Mindanao. “Maranao” literally means “People of the Lake.” They are called as such because most of them live in the Lake Lanao area. Maranao people are known for their sophisticated weaving, wood and metal crafts, artwork and epic literature.
