Go for Jollibee Delivery

I noticed that during the days after pay day, my office mates have their usual special merienda. I said that it is special because it is not their usual merienda of chips, bread or boiled bananas from the canteen. Their special merienda came from a Jollibee delivery.

Days after pay day, an office mate of mine will ask each of us in the office if we want to have merienda from Jollibee. Since I am a cheapskate, I always say “no.” Jollibee delivery is fast because the delivery boy is already in our office few minutes after my office mate ordered their merienda.

I think that Jollibee delivery is one of the fastest in delivering the food that you ordered as compared with the other food establishments in Metro Manila.

If you want some Jollibee delivery of your favorite items in Jollibee menu, then I suggest that you dial their hotline: 8-7000

Also, Jollibee set-up a Jollibee Online Delivery that allows customers to order their favorite langhap sarap meals via the Internet.

Thus, if you are craving for a langhap sarap meals on Jollibee menu even during the evening, then I suggest that you order through their hotline 8-7000 or Jollibee Online Delivery.

On Clear Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

Anti-dandruff shampoo TV commercials are making a big fuss about dandruff. In the past, people are not worried about their scalp or the minimal dandruff on their head. The only ones who are worrying about dandruff, in the past, are those who have excessive dandruff problems and they turn to anti-dandruff shampoos that are considered as special type of shampoo solution back then. But now, TV commercials are telling people that if you have even minimal or unnoticeable dandruff then you are undesirable. Your crush will ignore you or even shun you and a host of other scenario to make people feel that they “need” to use an anti-dandruff shampoo.

In the Philippines today, the two leading anti-shampoo brands are Clear and Head and Shoulders. I got a chance to use Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo during the time that it was launched and free promotional sachet of Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo are given to the public.

When I used Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo, I noticed that my scalp felt itchy. I used Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo for few days and I noticed that it worsen the dandruff on my head. Dandruff became plenty and larger in size. Because of that, I stopped using Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo and returned to regular shampoo brands. It is possible that the formulation of Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo is not suitable for my scalp.

My story about Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo occurred years ago and I thought that the formulation of the shampoo may have been changed now. However, I received a story from my brother that he too experienced itchiness on his scalp and worsening of his dandruff problem when he used Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo recently.

I believe that Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo is effective in combating dandruff problems that is why many people are using it. However, the formulation of Clear Anti-dandruff shampoo is not for everyone. This fact is also applicable to Head and Shoulders Anti-dandruff shampoo and to regular shampoo brands. Some people have sensitive scalp that is why before using any shampoo, I suggest that you test it first to know if it will make your scalp and hair feel better.

Be Aware at Cherry Mobile Sale

It seems like Cherry Mobile is regularly doing some promo or discount sales in their stores around Metro Manila. Their sales attract droves of people who want to buy cheap but reliable phones.

I have one Cherry Mobile phone and that is 1202i, which I bought last year and costs about 1,000 pesos. My Cherry Mobile 1202i is still alive and functioning as of this day.

Cherry Mobile sales are good but buyer have something to be aware of when buying during sale period at Cherry Mobile. Here is a story related to me by my brother:

I was looking for a phone last week so I dropped by a Cherry Mobile store at SM. While I was looking at the Cherry Mobile phones at the display, I saw a man who availed the Cherry Mobile phone that is on sale. He already paid for the phone that he bought and the saleslady already gave him his receipt. The man asked the saleslady if the Cherry Mobile that he bought has a warranty. To the dismay of the man, the saleslady answered that there is no warranty for Cherry Mobile phones that are on sale.

Well, this is very much like CD-R King, which also doesn't issue warranty for their products.

So, if you are going to a Cherry Mobile sale, be aware of the fact that Cherry Mobile may not issue warranty for their products on sale.

TDK Flash Disk with Flash Lock

Flash disk, which is also known as flash drive, is an important piece of gadget for most of us. Years ago, no one can imagine that all of our items – documents, photos, music etc.- can fit in one small gadget. But now, the flash disk is an indispensable tool for us, especially for those who are working with computers.

The flash disk that I am using now is the 2 GB TDK Flash Disk. The TDK Flash Disk is like the other flash disks in the market. What I like with my TDK Flash drive is its Flash Lock Software.

TDK Flash Disk

The Flash Lock gives the TDK Flash Disk moderate level of protection to your files. The Flash Lock Software enables you to partition the memory of the TDK Flash Disk into two. One is the non-protected partition while the other one is the protected partition of the flash disk, which can be accessed by using the Flash Lock Software.

The protected partition of the TDK Flash Disk is password protected and you are the one who will set-up the password. Also, the Flash Lock Software allows you to allocate the amount of memory for the protected partition and the unprotected partition.

Having a Flash Lock Software is good for people who want to hide important files from other people. This is good because flash disks are prone to being lost because of their small size.

So, if you are working on important files or data that you want to hide from peering eyes, then I suggest that you buy a flash disk with a Flash Lock Software.

My Top Five Jollibee Menu

Ask any kid who lives in the Philippines on what is his/her favorite fastfood restaurant and it is highly probable that that the answer that you will get is Jollibee. I don't know how the big red bee managed to get into the hearts of the Filipino people. Is it because of Jollibee's jolly-looking mascot? Or is it because of a wide array of Jollibee Menu or food that are perceived by the people as “masarap.”

Jollibee is so popular in the Philippines that almost every block in Metro Manila has one Jollibee store. Jollibee somehow thwarted McDonalds goal of invading the Philippines.

As I had said, Jollibee Menu has a wide array of food items. So, in Jollibee Menu, what are the top five food? Here is my list:

1. Yum Burger
Jollibee menu: Burger Yum!
Jollibee Yumburger
Leading on my list of best food in Jollibee Menu is the Yum Burger. I believe that it is one of the top food in Jollibee Menu because of its popularity. As far as I know, Yum Burger is not the best burger in the Philippines. The patty is not pure beef and can be liken to the ones being sold by Angel Burger and other food stands located on sidewalks. However, I observed that Yum Burger is the most ordered food in Jollibee Menu.

2. Sundae
Jollibee menu: Choco Crumble Sundae
Jollibee Sundae

Looking for sweets in Jollibee Menu? I bet that you will order Jollibee's Sundae as your dessert. Sundae is the counterpart of Yum Burger in terms of popularity. The simple Sundae of the past now has various flavors. On the Jollibee Menu, you will find Chocolate Sundae, Choco Crumble Sundae and Rocky Road Brownie Sundae.

3. Jollibee Chickenjoy
Jollibee menu: Chickenjoy
Jollibee Chickenjoy

This is another popular item on Jollibee Menu. If a Jollibee costumer wants to eat a heavy meal or a meal with, you can bet that it is very likely that the customer will choose the Jollibee Chickenjoy with rice. As for me, the Jollibee Chickenjoy is OK. It is crunchy and yummy. However, I still prefer the fried chicken that is cooked in my home.

4. Jollibee Chicken BBQ
Jollibee menu: chicken barbecue
Jollibee Chicken BBQ

When I ordering a heavy meal at Jollibee, I usually pick the Jollibee Chicken BBQ on the Jollibee Menu. I think that it taste better than the Jollibee Chickenjoy because it is less bland because of the honey sauce. My only complaint with the chicken bbq is that sometimes it is burnt or charred.

5. Creamy Macaroni Soup
Jollibe Menu items: Jollibee macaroni soup
Jollibee Creamy Macaroni Soup

This is my favorite of all the food on Jollibee Menu. When I am still working in a small company, my co-worker and I usually eat at Jollibee. I always choose either the Shanghai Rolls or the Burger Steak, which I partner with creamy macaroni soup. Too bad that Jollibee removed it from the 39ers Value Meal. Seems like Jollibee noticed that it is a quite popular item on Jollibee Menu.

So, that’s my top five food on Jollibee Menu. How about you? What's your favorite on Jollibee Menu?

Feel Cool with Tagaytay Zipline

In the first post of this series, I talked about Majayjay Falls. Now, let us go to another good place to cool down this Summer. This place is none other than Tagaytay City. Once you are in this city, I assure you that you will feel cool because of its cool climate. There are times that fogs form in Tagaytay City even if it is afternoon.

One thing that is getting popular in Tagaytay City is the Tagaytay Zipline, which can be found in Picnic Grove. Tagaytay Zipline is an exciting activity inside Picnic Grove and many visitors are trying it.

Tagaytay Zipline is exciting because its cables cross the chasm between the two high places in Picnic Grove. Once you try the Tagaytay Zipline, you will feel the cold air rushing in your face. Also, you will see the the world-famous Taal Volcano while you are rushing down to the other side.
Somebody is enjoying the Tagaytay Zipline.
Tagaytay Zipline is available everyday. One-way trip across Tagaytay Zipline costs 200 pesos during weekdays and 300 pesos during weekends and holidays. Two way trip costs 300 pesos during weekdays and 400 pesos during weekend and holidays.

If you don't have the guts to try the Tagaytay Zipline like the person on the above photo, then you can still try Tagaytay Zipline by riding the cable car, which looks like a big bird cage. One-way trip along Tagaytay Zipline costs 200 pesos during weekdays and 300 pesos during weekends and holidays. Two-way trip along Tagaytay Zipine costs 300 pesos during weekdays and 400 pesos during weekends and holidays.

Expect long lines to Tagaytay Zipline during holidays and weekends because too many visitors want to try Tagaytay Zipline.

Majayjay Falls

Summer is here again and because of this, many people are looking for good places to cool down. To give you some idea to what place to visit so that you can cool down and relax this Summer, I will give you a series of blog posts that are about good places that will guarantee that you will cool down this Summer. First in this series is Majayjay Falls.

I got a chance to visit Majayjay Falls after the Pahiyas Festival in 2010.

Majayjay Falls is located at foot of the mystical Banahaw Mountain and it is not easy to go reach it. The reason for this is that there is no regular jeepney that travel from Lucban to Majayjay Falls. The jeepney driver only agree to bring passengers to Majayjay Falls if majority of passengers are going to Majayjay Falls. Usually, visitors to Majayjay Falls had to disembark at this place:

If you are coming from Lucban, then you must ride the jeepney at Lucban Market. Just ask the terminal barker on what route you should ride to reach Majayjay Falls. Ride a tricycle to Majayjay Falls once you reach the place shown on the above photo. Never attempt to walk to Majayjay Falls because it is very far and the trek is uphill.

There is an entrance fee for Majayjay Falls but the fee will not exceed 100 hundred pesos per person. Last May 2010, the entrance fee is 20 pesos per person and 35 pesos per person who will do an overnight camping inside the Majayjay Park.

After the long trek and the trail, you will reach this:
Majayjay Falls

The water at Majayjay Falls is so cold that people place their beverages and softdrinks in its water to cool them down. I assure you that you will shiver once you dip in the cold water of Majayjay.

Majayjay Falls is crowded during weekends and holidays so be prepared for the crowd. It is recommended that you dip or swim at near Majayjay Falls because the water is relatively cleaner there than downstream.

For more information, read my previous article about Majayjay Falls.

Infrared Massager

We employees usually experience stressful events in our workplace. There are times that we are so loaded with workload that our body become too exhausted. That's why after a hard day's work, it would be good to have a good massage. However, going to massage parlor is quite expensive that's why many of us treat having a massage as luxury. So, if you want a massage but don't have the money to go regularly to masseurs then the infrared massager can be the answer to your massage problems.

My parents bought the infrared massager from a Robinson Mall in our area because they believe that it will ease the pains that they feel because of rheumatism. This infrared massager a hand held device that is more than one feet long but is not heavy enough so that it could be used without other person's help.
Infrared massage

The infrared massager has two points at the bottom end that is used to place pressure on the part of the body that it come in contact with. Infrared massager works by vibrating and the vibration is used to put pressure on the muscles.

According to the manufacturer, the infrared massager can reduce muscle ache, speed up burning of fats, promote blood circulation and build immunity. The manufacturer also promised that the infrared massager alleviate pains caused by fatigue and rheumatism. The infrared massager also function with thermotherapy.

Too much benefits from a small gadget right? One day, due to stress at work, I tried the infrared massager to reduce the muscle ache that I was feeling. Well, it somehow worked to slightly reduce muscle pains but not enough to totally remove the pain. I believe that the massage that this infrared massager gives is not as par with the massage that can be given by masseurs.

Also, I can't understand why it is called infrared massager. I don't know how infrared light works in alleviating muscle pains. I can't see any infrared light being emitted by this infrared massager. I believe that it is just a gimmick to make people believe that infrared has some special power to ease muscle pains.

Infrared massager can be bought to any of your local stores that sell massage tools in malls. My parents bought the infrared massager for 1,500 pesos.

A Cake from Red Ribbon Bakeshop

I always go to Red Ribbon Bakeshop, whenever I need a cake for a birthday celebration or any celebration. When my beloved celebrated her birthday, she especially requested the Black Forest flavor of Red Ribbon Bakeshop's cake. Black Forest is a chocolate cake that is infused with cherry. Black Forest is the best-selling cake of Red Ribbon Bakeshop. Well, it is no wonder why it became the best-selling cake because it is indeed delicious, like what I had said in a previous post.

Red Ribbon Bakeshop is a sister company of the popular fastfood chain, Jollibee. Red Ribbon Bakeshop is a classy cake shop but have cakes that is at par with the ones offered by Goldilocks Cake Shop. I believe Red Ribbon Bakeshop is better than Goldilocks because Red Ribbon Bakeshop's cakes taste better than the ones being sold by Goldilocks.
Red Ribbon Bakeshop cakes.

My beloved loves Red Ribbon Bakeshop's Black Forest and because of this, I will come back to Red Ribbon Bakeshop to buy cakes f there is celebration in our home or in our office.

Go and Have and SunJar

There is an interesting item that my brother brought home last month. This item is a big jar but it is not a cookie jar. It is not a jam jar either. What my brought home is the SunJar.

If jam jar is used to store jam, the sunjar is used to store sunlight during day time. Yes! This wonderful jar relies on solar energy to generate light. All you have to do is to place it beside a well lighted window at it will store solar energy in rechargeable batteries. It contains solar cells so that it is able to convert solar energy to electricity.

The sunjar show two colors of light. One is of orange color.

The other light of the sunjar is blue.

I recommend this sunjar, especially now it is summer and we are threatened once again with power outages. Sunjar is an environment-friendly way of lighting up your night.
