Vice Ganda for Cherry Prepaid's Ganda Promos

Monday, October 14, 2019

Cherry Mobile is bringing in new stuff in from last week's Heart Evangelista collab, to something big and special today featuring the one and only unkabogable Vice Ganda and their mobile arm Cherry Prepaid featuring their new Ganda Data Promos.

Jacy Chua of Cherry Mobile Communications says "We are 5 Million subscribers strong and our goal to have diversified prepaid mobile data, call and text packages is now a reality. Our CMSURF packs offer affordable rates that could get them connected all year and these Ganda Promos will certainly complement it by giving them a choice of more data allocation everytime they subscribe to the service."

Jacy Chua Cherry Prepaid’s CFO says “We wanted to go a step further to give affordable data and as subscribers ourselves, we try to have it in Cherry Prepaid. We tried to analyze what our subscribers wanted and these are the new offers. We change rapidly, we always listen, and today data connectivity is at the heart of every Filipino’s lives. It is essential to connect with friends and family and now this need had us question what 20 or 50 pesos could do, we had to make it for a longer duration and people could afford. You now have time to stretch, less frequency to subscribe, you get more savings. We didn’t stop there, we allowed rollovers for unused data, this is SULIT because you now have enough time to do it with Cherry Prepaid and our millions of subscribers. We want to give more. There will be more promos to give more data, plus the best experience and coming out with GANDA15, GANDA30, GANDA60. We wanted to have a face who embodies the same qualities that Cherry Prepaid has, one who is sincere and genuine. Thank you!” 

Then they revealed Vice Ganda as their new endorser!

Vice Ganda says "I am very glad to see you tonight now that I am the ambassador of Cherry Prepaid. Everyone will be able to afford the promos and I am looking forward to providing good connection to more Filipinos."

The Ganda Promos GANDA15, GANDA30 and GANDA60 feature different data packages. GANDA15 gets you 250MB for 3 days, GANDA30 gets you 550MB for 7 days whilst GANDA60 gets you 1.3GB. All these have longer validity, bigger data allocation which means more fun consuming content in different platforms, which means everything is SULIT with Vice Ganda's Ganda Promos.

Visit Cherry Mobile's official site and social media platforms for more information about this new offer. I don't have a Cherry Prepaid sim yet so this might be a good time to have one!


Janine Gutierrez for QCinema Entry "Babae at Baril"

Visited dead spot ridden Quezon Memorial Circle today for the presscon of Janine Gutierrez as she reprises the role of Elise in upcoming QCinema Entry “Babae at Baril”. It’s about a liberal, free spirited sales lady who suddenly found a gun within her midst, one of which makes her do anything she wants, to talk and hurt them as she wish.

Janine has one of the most gorgeous faces in the industry and she’s been seen in several spreads, magazines, prints, even in New York Fashion Week sidelines as she wears some of the most gorgeous pieces too. The movie earmarks her quaint acting prowess after doing several shows on GMA her home station. Babae at Baril also received a Php 1.5 Million prod grant from the QCinema International Film Festival and will be shown from October 13 to 22 on theaters QC wide.

Janine says "I am happy to do this because I have always wanted to do something like OTJ but I guess this is my version of a dark drama action flick. Aside from me there is a part about the gun so there is a huge story behind it, a story for everyone. A lot of people go through harrasment. I hope you get to watch it in Gateway Cinemas tomorrow so you could see what we are saying about the film."

The director Rea Red says "This was shot in Pinoy areas, slums, some dark places, there might be similarities to Joker. It is different but we are nervous about how this will be received."

The press event was sponsored by M&M’s, Hobe Noodles and Belo Sun Expert too. Thanks for the goodies you had us take home. :)

Use PayMaya This 10.10 Weekend!

Friday, October 11, 2019

I spent a lot of time and money yesterday and I had so much fun. Shopee, Lazada and Zalora all had specials just for October 10, a monthly sale of sorts where Filipinos bleed money and buy things online. I got several shoes, shirt and something that I didn’t need but bought it anyway. It’s a good deal after all, but I had the smartest way to shop, and did it with my PayMaya Visa Card. :) I have about 3 of these connected to my PayMaya App and the good news is, you can get as much as 3,000 pesos cash back if you use the payment system.

I have had the chance to actually buy a lot of things in the past, after transactions in these online stores, PayMaya texted me and returned 100% of my purchase. If you accumulate about 5,000 pesos of stuff bought from these shops, you can also get 500 pesos as a reward. PayMaya has been doing it a lot these days and you better do it because October seems a nice time to get your money back. So get your discount vouchers and free shipping from stores, then use PayMaya to pay for the purchase, it’s such a rewarding experience using it especially this 10.10 sale weekend!

Don’t Pay Cash, PayMaya!


ACER Joins 10.10 Shopee Brands Fest

Wednesday, October 09, 2019

If you're Filipino and looking for a deal, you've probably got the date 10.10 already marked. If you haven't yet, then maybe this is the time you should because several brands are going to take your shopaholic dreams come true with an unbelievable sale this coming October 10th, a brands festival of sorts, and tech giant ACER is joining.

The Acer Swift 7 usually sold at 60k++ will be sold Php 52,155 on that day. The Acer Nitro 5 which is priced around that area is also going to be sold at Php 51,300. Aspire E Series laptops on the other hand (coming from almost 50k) will only be sold around Php 41,796. Then the Aspire 3 which costs almost the same is going to be sold at Php 38,475, a lot cheaper than usual but doesn't sacrifice quality. Aside from the awesome laptop computers, they're also getting the prices on projectors slashed from around 35k to just Php 31,588, you wouldn't believe it could happen, but they will beginning on that event.

Make sure you get your app downloaded and put these on your carts by going to the Acer official store. They also got free shipping and cashbacks vouchers which you can take advantage of from September 23-October 10th. No minimum amount of spending, it's that crazy. 


A Stunning Maine Mendoza for Vivo V17 Pro

The cat is out of the bag and yes, this includes a stunningly gorgeous Maine Mendoza endorsing the new Vivo V17 Pro in Crystal White.

This comes as the brand launches the phone in a bit which Maine promises would be perfect for those fun selfies and shoots you often do. The new Vivo V17 Pro has 6 cameras at the front and back, with the industry leading 32 Megapixel dual elevating front camera which Vivo has been doing in the previous models but certainly improved a lot in its output. 

The phone also comes with a Super AMOLED Ultra Full View display, a 48 Megapixel AI Quad Back Camera so those SLR functions would happen on your phone. This is designed this way for those fun quirky events you often go to and need a wide shot so all your friends fit in on one frame. The selfie shots also capture you flawlessly, no further modifications because it learns to make it ever lightly smooth your skin at the instant you take the shot. This also is good for low light conditions with their proprietary Night Selfie, perfect for those date nights you would want to share with the world. No funny deer in headlights scenarios, it processes several images and combines it, so it could display your face, you would stand out from the crowd (yes there are beautifying features) and puts all supposed peripherals in clever slots so you won't be blocking anyone's view. The front cam tucks in, so is the earpiece. Security's also cinch because of the Vivo in display fingerprint sensor which opens the phone. 

It's got a voice changer, made optimized for gaming, has good Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE Processor and a 4100 mAh battery that charges fast and lasts longer. It is currently available in King Black and Crystal White, but I bet they'll run out of the white one once pre orders are out. I bet it's as gorgeous as Maine! I'll update this post when I get photos from the launch later!

Okay here you go!

Go get them in Vivo stores nationwide!

Maine Mendoza Teases Vivo V17 Pro

Tuesday, October 08, 2019

Fans are going crazy over Maine Mendoza and the phone that she’s teasing. The fun and cute actress was spotted in a screenie for the lates Vivo prime handset, the Vivo V17 Pro. When will this be launched? We don’t know yet but rumors are it’s going to be tomorrow. 

Make sure you wait for it in Vivo Philippines Facebook page because just like the challenges she’s posting soon, we tried it all during a dinner/trivia night event last week. 

Maygahd, Maine Mendoza got us all doing fun and games in between questions. Clad in formal gowns and over the top designer dresses, she shares her outfit choices and then goes on and eat 10 marshmallows in 17 seconds. As if that’s not enough, she made us recite the ABC’s... but not without a mouth full of milky and creamy polvoron. We struggled a lot but, in the end we got our answers correct, good enough to win a signed cap by Golden State Warriors premier player Steph Curry! It was fun, but stay tuned when it (all the videos of Maine) comes out in Vivo Philippines social media pages! 

They’re going to be lit! 


New Gen Lead Stars on GMA's Madrasta

This would be a huge challenge for these guys, but after seeing the pilot episode yesterday, I'm quite confident they would be able to do a good job in Madrasta.

It's a new show, but casts include the new generation of prime actors from GMA's stable. They have done several shows, led some of them in fact; but the burden of having a drama piece and seriousness of it takes a lot effort wise as what I have understood with Juancho Trivino said. He will be also working with Arra San Agustin and Thea Tolentino (whom I love personally and in several shows). 

This series is about romance, adultery, and will involve their families. Check out our interview with them last week.

Make sure you watch the show as recent social media reactions have been very positive. I am confident Arra, Juancho and Thea can give you more in the coming days. 

Madrasta, only on GMA!


PayMaya Says "Don't Pay Cash, PayMaya!"

Monday, October 07, 2019

Coffee in the morning even started with PayMaya!

Is it even possible to spend a whole day without dishing out cash off your wallet? It is! PayMaya had us do that a couple days ago when they launched their new campaign, "Don't pay cash, PayMaya!" at the Eattogethet Food Hall in Capitol Commons in Pasig City.

Going there, I had to flag a Grab car and use my upgraded PayMaya Card for my transportation. Since it is postpaid and a Visa card, you can have it added as a secondary card in Grab's app. All transactions come with alerts via SMS and is listed on your transactions tab on the PayMaya App. Oh and before I forget, make sure you download the PayMaya app now because it's got tons of features which were not available previously. We obviously needed dinner so in this joint, PayMaya got us to simply use the app and pay via the QR code of each establishment.

Each of the store in Eattogether had these LCD terminals where you can choose what food you want to order and how much. After placing the order, you can either use the QR Code displayed or insert your card into this machine, get verified and voila! Just wait for your order to be completed.

My dinner comprised of these yummy hotpot ingredients which was sold by the gram. I didn't hold back and loved the cheese meatball and the saté broth it was going to be in. I put chilies on mine because I like it spicy.

After it was weighed, I just waited for the price and scanned the QR code on this counter. They prepared it and I just sat in the counter, it only took a couple minutes tops. I had a filling main course, dessert, plus tons of drinks later on the evening. 

After witnessing a crowd of over a hundred that night, I thought it was going to be hard to order but no, it was just faster with the PayMaya process and boy oh boy, it was convenient, even had cash back as rewards. This is what PayMaya envisioned as a cashless day. It's why they want you to also get acquainted with their latest campaign, to "Don't Pay Cash, PayMaya!"

I did even have my Grab Car home using the PayMaya card. It is possible to be cashless after all!
