coke can glass craze

Post Content

hi everyone! it feels good to be able to write on this blog again and greet you all. it’s been quite a challenge for me to maintain my appearance in my little space here while i also need to focus on some other thing called ‘work’. 😀

so to start, since i’m kind of overwhelmed where to begin, let me share my latest collection craze. early this morning we went back to manila from ‘the white house’ for my B’s conference. i, on the other hand, headed home to be able to do this ‘blogging’ thing and enjoy internet-ing all by myself. yeeha!

i’ve been meaning to collect McDonald’s Coke can glasses but i have given up my notorious love affair with Mc Donald. i thought of sending sms brigade to my friends and asked them to buy me a glass each time they’ll get their fix of quarter pounder.

cokecanglass 1 order of mcdo meal allows you to purchase 1 glass.

with the collection i’m trying to build, that means i need to eat 30x mcdo meals to get 30x cans. that’s a lot of fat!!!

lucky that i thought of going to their Alimall Cubao branch for breakfast and the lady crew said that since they are wrapping up the promo, i can purchase as many as i like. and without any further encouragement, i grabbed for myself 6x of each charcoal and pink glasses.


i saved myself and cholesterol count from 13x quarter pounder meals. and now i’m one happy lady!

i’ll grab myself some more of these later with my B. *insatiable haha*

Want to get the best deals in Manila?

*re-post* Lots of exciting deals for as low as 90% discount. Sign up now, links below!

Online bargain hunting has never been exciting! Thanks to the myriad of Groupon sites that started sprouting left and right here in our beloved place, Manila.

Groupon is a shortcut for “Group Coupons” that offers unbeatable deals to the hottest restaurants, spa and salon services, health, beauty and fitness, hotel and travel package, store outlets for a minimum of 50% and as high as 90% discount!

How it works? Groupon sites features an amazing deal everyday. Most of these sites require a minimum number of purchases for the deal to be activated. If it didn’t reach the required number, then nobody gets the deal.

Groupon sites in Manila patterned their business model from a popular website called Groupon itself which is a deal-of the-day website that is localized to major geographic markets in the United States and Canada.

Now it’s our time to take advantage of these amazing deals!

Let me share some of the leading Groupon sites here in Manila:

CashCashPinoy has got to be the leading groupon site in Manila. (and my favorite, too!)

What I like about Cash Cash Pinoy is it doesn’t require a minimum number of purchase for the deals to get activated. It is more of a deal/bargain site for us consumers. *lucky*

BUYanihan features good deals everyday. You can buy the deal if you like it but you won’t be charged unless the minimum number of people required to sign up is met to make the deal successful.

Ensogo is a FREE service that offers great deals of 50%-90% savings on the best things to enjoy, see, eat, and buy in Manila.

LocalRoam is a great way to explore your city with your friends without breaking the bank. Each day, LocalRoam offers an amazing deal–up to 90% off–on stuff to do, see, eat, or buy in and around cities in the Philippines.

I personally am a bargain hunter and I would love other groupon sites to spread their wings and offer us a lot of amazing deals between 50-90% off! E.v.e.r.y.d.a.y!

I’ll be sure to share more of my groupon discoveries here with you on the blog, so stay tuned.

all you can eat!

8 Ways to Self-Actualize

1. Experience things fully, vividly, selflessly. Throw yourself into the experiencing of something: concentrate on it fully, let it totally absorb you.

2. Life is an ongoing process of choosing between safety (out of fear and need for defense) and risk (for the sake of progress and growth): Make the growth choice a dozen times a day.

3. Let the self emerge. Try to shut out the external clues as to what you should think, feel, say, and so on, and let your experience enable you to say what you truly feel.

4. When in doubt, be honest. If you look into yourself and are honest, you will also take responsibility. Taking responsibility is self-actualizing.

5. Listen to your own tastes. Be prepared to be unpopular.

6. Use your intelligence, work to do well the things you want to do, no matter how insignificant they seem to be.

7. Make peak experiencing more likely: get rid of illusions and false notions. Learn what you are good at and what your potentialities are not.

8. Find out who you are, what you are, what you like and don’t like, what is good and what is bad for you, where you are going, what your mission is. Opening yourself up to yourself in this way means identifying defenses – and then finding the courage to give them up.

– by Abraham Maslow, an American psychologist.

Happy June 1st!
