Soderno Sunday Night Market Opening

Mothers are indeed the unsung heroes. They are the only ones who could run the household, take care of the kids and manage the finances all at the same time. What they do is absolutely beyond assessment and treating them out this Mother’s Day is the least we could do for them.

Treat your mom on Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 13) at the opening of the Sunday Night Market (6pm to 12mn) at Soderno – the premiere weekend food market of the south!

Mothers will get free Toblerone chocolate bars and free unlimited photos from the “I Love Mom” photo booth.  On top of that, moms will also get a free gift pack from Soderno (while supplies last). All marketgoers who visit will also get free chocolates from Toblerone.

Brought to you by the same organizers of Mercato Centrale at Bonifacio Global City, Soderno is the destination food haven of the South with a wide selection of food choices – including charcoal grilled burgers, juicy ribeye steaks, Italian deep-fried Panzarotti sandwiches, roast beef, thinly-sliced bagnet, Pinoy street food, red velvet cake, ice-cream filled mochi balls and more – that is perfect for Sunday night family ‘salo-salo’ dinner.

Along with the great food choices, marketgoers can enjoy free wi-fi, live acoustic entertainment and free freshly brewed organic coffee for senior citizens. Entrance to Soderno is absolutely free!

Soderno is open every Friday and Saturday night (6pm-3am) and Sunday nights (6pm-12mn). Soderno is located at the Molito Lifestyle Center, corner of Commerce and Madrigal avenues, Alabang (in front of Alabang Town Center and Ayala Alabang Village).

Leave Fruitfully on Your Break!

Jamba Juice Fender Blender Jambafies NLEX

Watch out vacationers who are heading up north this coming long weekend—the Jamba Juice Fender Blender will be rolling to serve and make your trip better-for-you.

From April 4 to 7, people who are going to pass northbound of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) can expect a vibrantly refreshing stop-over, as the iconic store in wheels will be parked 24-hours at the Petron Gas Station in Malolos, Bulacan. Meanwhile, from the night of April 7 to 9, the Fender Blender will be stationed 24-hours southbound of the same route. Having a fully-equipped mobile kitchen carefully laid out inside the gooseneck trailer, the Jamba Juice crew is all-set to offer some of their flavorful smoothies and snacks to all vacationers heading north of Manila.

“Beyond its pledge of inspiring people to live fruitfully, Jamba Juice is also committed to making its products more accessible to Filipinos. Hence, we want to expand the experience to people who are heading toward that direction, or at least, those who are live near the Fender Blender’s location,” shares Sharon T. Fuentebella, Managing Director of Jamba Juice Philippines.

To date, Jamba Juice recently launched its pioneering branch south of the metro— Jamba Juice Alabang Town Center, to serve its niche in the south. And true to its commitment of making their offerings available to a wider audience, the brand will also soon unveil its third store in SM Mall of Asia.

Meanwhile, Mark Gamboa Marketing Director of Jamba Juice Philippines says that the Jamba Juice Fender Blender also aims to make people share the Jamba Juice experience to their loved ones.

“Vacations are enjoying quality time with families, friends and significant others. This is why Jamba Juice Fender Blender was brought to one of the busiest expressways in the country this Holy Week. We want to enhance quality time with family by giving them the flavorful experience, which comes in every Jamba Juice product,” adds Gamboa.

And the Ultimate Global Pinoy is…

Who is the modern day Filipino hero?

He’s no Andres Bonifacio nor is he a Jose Rizal. But even without a sword, a gun or a pen, his sacrifice for the country is no less valiant. After all, he carries the aspirations of his family and the country’s economic security on his back.

Aptly called as the modern day hero, these 11 million overseas Filipino workers have earned the trust and admiration of employers all over the world. Something we as their countrymen should all be proud of. With this reason, the Commission of Filipinos Overseas, Duty Free Philippines, and Kraft Asia pay tribute to the Global Pinoys that have showed excellence not only in their careers, but also in the initiatives to help their fellowmen in the country, through the Thank You Global Pinoy Awards.

The Thank You Global Pinoy Awards is an initiative to search for the most outstanding global Filipino workers who deserve the gratitude not only of their loved ones; but also of the nation as a whole. It was primarily led by the Commission of Filipinos Overseas, the government agency tasked to promote and uphold the interests of Filipino emigrants and permanent residents abroad. The online nominations ran from October 2011 to February 2012, and 10 outstanding overseas Filipino workers have been chosen and will be announced during the Awards Night on March 15, 2012.

The Thank You Global Pinoy Awards is our way of saying thank you, and giving recognition to Global Pinoys. We are proud to announce the names of the individuals, who have shown their outstanding contributions to both their employer, and their country,” says Imelda Nicolas, CFO Chairperson.

“In its tradition of being the thank you and pasalubong chocolate from overseas Filipinos, Toblerone has initiated this project in order to give back, and give each and every Global Pinoy what they truly deserve—a sweet thank you,” shares Jaya Singh, Region Director, Middle East and Asia Pacific, Kraft Foods World Travel Retail.

Be part of a grateful nation. Join the rest of the country as it honors the ultimate global Pinoy, whom a grateful nation will say a resounding thank you to. For more information, visit www.thankyouglobalpinoy.com.
