Weekend Story: Scorching Hot Summer

Last weekend was scorching hot! It seems summer in the Philippines is getting hotter than ever. Kamusta naman ang aming Meralco bill neto dahil sa aircon at electric fan? Even our pet, Jasper the friendly dog, felt the intense heat inside and outside our house. Except for the trip to the wet market and the church and to this newly-opened restaurant that a friend recommended to me, we intentionally didn’t go out for fear of getting torched. We just busied ourselves with household chores and food and Netflix because heller…Netflix is life, hahaha.

Going Loco Over CoCo, The Fresh Tea and Juice Brand

CoCo Fresh Tea and Juice (also known as CoCo Tea PH) is one of the leading brands in the freshly-made drinks industry with presence in China, Hong Kong, South East Asia, and the United States. They are known for their fresh fruit juices and tasty milk teas that are perfect as on-the-go drinks this summer and beyond.

CoCo Tea PH’s fresh teas and juices

Last night, I attended their Summer On-The-Go event that celebrated the soft launch of their SM City Manila store, their 5th branch in the Philippines. (I heard they first arrived here in 2013.) It was an evening filled with fun and excitement as people shared about their summer plans and eventually pledged for a better lifestyle. Who doesn’t want one, anyway? I, personally, am aiming for a more active and healthier lifestyle this 2015. And what better way to strengthen my commitment to that goal than to try drinking healthy, starting with CoCo’s interesting product line of teas and juices made from the freshest and the highest quality ingredients!

No Beach Escapades for Me This Summer…

…or so I think. Why? Because it’s been a few weeks since summer arrived but I have yet to see the beach. No, not even a shadow of it. Our plan to go on an out-of-town trip for the Holy Week fizzled out due to conflict of interests. With only a month and a few days before summer ends, I don’t think I can still plan another summer getaway. So yeah, I think I am bound to not see the 3S (sand, sun and sea). I guess I’d just have to make do with the nearest resort. Or go out more often than normal wearing my summer clothes and shades. Currently, I enjoy wearing one of the two old pairs of Ray Bans I own. It’s just the basic one but I find it very useful in protecting my eyes from the sun. Plus, it looks good on me in photos.

Despite the lack of beach trips, I am blessed to be given the opportunities to attend several fun blogger events. My last was this food tasting at the Flying Pig in Eastwood. I always have a great time talking with fellow bloggers while learning and enjoying new things. Oh well, I better stop complaining now. I’m still lucky, after all, having these things to keep me busy. And happy, too.
