Now this took place a few weeks back. I know, I know, major backlog but still allow me to share what happened during the awarding/dinner date with my Be My Bebe contest winner at the Midas Hotel.
I was juggling two events that day but I was lucky enough to take a couple of stills of the luxury which is Midas Hotel. See the bags below? Can you say Hermes much?

If you were at the hotel that day, this would greet you at the second floor where Midas Cafe is located.

Presenting… the Bebe Gold line!

And now, the winner of my Be My Bebe contest! Everyone meet Yani Metrado...

with Brian O'Hara of Prestige Brands Philippines

with Mr. Erwin Dona, Brand Director of Midas Hotel and Casino
And this is where the dinner/feast took place -at the Midas Cafe! Sorry, this is the only photo that I was able to take. This is my favorite part of the cafe, the dessert bar!

Now you must be wondering what we've talked about other than eating (and eating and eating) right? Well, it's between me and Yani (and her cousin who I also requested to join us for fear of awkward moments hehe). I must say that aside from the food (which I enjoyed greatly!) I also enjoyed talking to Yani about (both) the little and big things in life, career, and of course, blogging! Speaking of, Yani is also a blogger. A newbie just like me. Do visit her BLOG where she talks about her daily conquest for food, travels and everything else in between. Again, congratulations Yani for winning my Be My Bebe contest and I hope to see more of you soon!

Thank you very much to the ever generous people of Prestige Brands Philippines! Ms. Es, Ms.Ella, Brian, Marla and Cesca, you guys are the best!

Of course, a special thanks to Mr. Erwin Dona and Midas Hotel for the special treat!

What better way to hold the country's biggest Skate Summit than to let two of the world's best pro skateboarders to lead it? This is exactly what Converse Philippines has in store for the hundreds of skateboard enthusiasts who are set to compete for the Converse Asia Crown title on March 31 at the Trinoma Mindanao Open Parking in Quezon City.

During the Summit, US-based pro skateboarders Kenny Anderson and Mike Anderson are set to show Filipino skaters how skateboarding is really done with their extremely polished skate tricks that seem effortless.

Kenny Anderson, who returns better than ever as an alumni to the Converse Skate Team (having been on the original team in 1997), is considered "untouchable" on a skateboard for his consistent style and fluidity; while for Mike Anderson's part, his skating is often described as "effortless," because he is said to make his tricks look as if it's very easy to do.

Catering to the best skateboarders around the Metro, the Asia Crown aims to give Filipino skateboarders the chance to show off their dope moves on the board and compete with the best of the best skateboarders across the country.

More than bragging rights, the local Asia Crown skateboarding champion will be hailed as the first official skateboarding ambassador of Converse Philippines - that means a year of Converse skateboarding goodies, Php50,000 cold hard cash, and plane tickets to official Converse skateboarding events worldwide.

An open skate for all, free of charge, the skate summit will also be a day-long celebration of physical recreation, while fusing music and the arts, to reinforce Converse Philippines' position as a key proponent of the global sport that is skateboarding.

For interested registrants, check Converse Philippines Facebook page or visit Registration forms are available for download at the Converse Philippine's Converse Asia Crown FB event page and in stores nationwide.

We've all seen the power of social networks especially here in the Philippines (we're not the world's social networking capital for nothing you know) and this time around, Bench harnesses its strength for a good cause with its historic 1M for 1M campaign.

With the help of its endorsers, Bench has drummed up a list of 15 foundations for the ultimate goal of endowing not one (1) but ten (10) charitable institutions / foundations Php100,000 each! Taking part on helping is very easy but before I show you how, here are Bench's endorsers and the corresponding foundations they are supporting...
Sam Concepcion for World Vision
Kris Lawrence for World Vision
Anthony Semerad for World Vision
David Semerad for World Vision
Diether Ocampo for K.I.D.S. Foundation
Dingdong Dantes for the YesPinoy Foundation
Isabelle Daza for Ephesus, Home of the Abused Girls
Iya Villania for the School for the Deaf
Jake Cuenca for C.R.I.B.S.
Janine Gutierrez for White Cross
Jason Francisco for Mother of Mercy Home for the Elderly
Jessy Mendiola for Missionaries of Charity 
John Prats for National Children's Hospital
Jon Avila for the Philippine Orthopedic Center Auxiliary Board, Inc.
Karylle for Child Haus
Kris Aquino for AGAPP
Lovi Poe for Childhope Asia
Lucy Torres - Gomez for K.I.D.S.
Paolo Avelino for the Philippine Red Cross
Rocco Nacino for Cancer Warriors Foundation
To help support this cause, you only need to follow three (3) simple steps:

  1. Visit and then log in via Twitter. If a user has no Twitter account, there will be a Twitter Sign Up button for him or her to sign up.
  2. Follow @benchtm by clicking on a button on the left side of the page. If the logged user is already following @benchtm, he/she will see a grayed out button.
  3. Finally, vote by clicking on options on a poll on the left hand side of the screen. Once you vote, there will be a button with which to send a TWEET saying "I follow @benchtm and voted for Celebrity Name for Charity Name via #Bench1M41M."
I have a soft spot for neglected and abandoned babies that's why I voted and chose the C.R.I.B.S. Foundation which Jake Cuenca is supporting. They are still far from the 100,000 mark but with your help, we can make a difference in the lives of these kids.

Hi everyone! Sorry for the late post. The PR Guy took a break from blogging to attend to a couple hundreds thousands of "work" related stuffs. Anyway, I was invited to an intimate dinner/launch a few weeks back by Bench. It's for their 1M 4 1M campaign and I'm very much excited to share to you how we can do our part in helping Bench reach their goal in extending help to not just one (1) but ten (10) charitable institutions in our country!
