Guess what’s going to excite the Philippines this 11.11.11?

The growing dynamic lifestyle in the Philippines is about to get even more vibrant as California’s famed cult brand enters the country to share the Jamba Juice experience--for the first time. 

Distinguished for bringing fresh fruit drinks and better-for-you snacks made specifically to cater to people who live active lifestyles, Jamba Juice shares its flavorful products for the first time in South-East Asia as it opens in the burgeoning, mixed-use district of Bonifacio High Street Central--a site known for being the go-to destination for the rising number of urbanites who are into dynamic activities.

Why Pumpkins?

Now, it's time again for some spooky story telling, ghost hunting and dressing up for the Halloween. But haven't you ask yourself yet guys? Why Pumpkins? It 's always been pumpkins and I really have no idea hahahaha! All I know about this pumpkins is for our tummies like pumpkin soups, pumpkin pie, muffins and more. Curiosity Attacks! 

Well check this cool info guys! about this pumpkins during the Halloween. Every October, carved pumpkins peer out from porches and doorsteps in the United States and other parts of the world. Gourd-like orange fruits inscribed with ghoulish faces and illuminated by candles are a sure sign of the Halloween season. The practice of decorating “jack-o’-lanterns”—the name comes from an Irish folktale about a man named Stingy Jack—originated in Ireland, where large turnips and potatoes served as an early canvas. Irish immigrants brought the tradition to America, home of the pumpkin, and it became an integral part of Halloween festivities.

The word Halloween is first attested in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows-Even ("evening"), that is, the night before All Hallows Day.Although the phrase All Hallows is found in Old English,   All-Hallows-Even is itself not attested until 1556.

Rain. Floods. Broken electronics.

Regardless of who needs help--relative, friend, neighbor, and even strangers-- Filipinos come together to help their kababayans during times of calamities. So it comes as no surprise that when Bulacan experienced heavy rainfall and floods, Abenson stepped up to help Bulakeños in need.
Through its 'We Serve' program, the leading appliance store in the country will be offering free laundry services, free appliance cleaning, checkups, and discounts on spare parts for electronics. This bayanihan effort is in cooperation with Samsung, Sharp, LG, TCL, Kelvinator, Condura, Fujindenzo, and Whirlpool, though the help of the Bulacan provincial government.
Abenson will be offering its services in the following areas on these dates:

October 25 (Tuesday) : Sta. Monica Covered Court, Hagonoy
October 26 (Wednesday) : Municipal Covered Court, Paombong
October 27 (Thursday) : Sports Complex and Convention Center, Malolos 
October 28 (Friday) : Poblacion Sports Complex, Calumpit

As expected, Abenson remains true to its commitment to giving Filipinos quality service and living up to the tenets of the bayanihan spirit by extending help to all in need.

Redefining the Entertainment Soundscape through Red Box’s Rock, Dine & Roll

Red Boxs Rock Dine and Roll

Laid back and easy-going yet still exuding a sense of sophistication when it comes to things like music, food and even interior design.

An audiophile? Definitely.

But in an era defined by music, it also describes the music aficionado’s go-to destination for audio perfection and dining satisfaction, all wrapped inside a high-gloss, cosmopolitan urban watering hole and that’s what Red Box is all about.

When audiophiles flock to Red Box, it’s not simply because it has the reputation of being the city’s premiere entertainment destination, it’s because it goes the extra mile to cater to what music lovers seek.

“To enjoy music means you have to have the total experience. Audiophile or not, Red Box makes a concerted effort to give an exceptional selection of music with superior quality, which you can enjoy with gourmet menu and drink selections as you unwind in our carefully interior decorated rooms,” shares Walden Chu, Managing Director of Red Box.

Defining the Entertainment Soundscape

Since Red Box opened its doors to music lovers in 2003, it has been recognized as one of the leading music hubs in the city. But perhaps a closer look may serve to explain the draw that it has for audiophiles.

For anyone who has taken the time to explore Red Box’s interiors, one will notice the deliberate way the speakers are placed inside to ensure sound quality. Each room has been carefully sound engineered down to the walls, which have been designed to acoustically guarantee a better sound experience. And their equipment, which uses state of the art technology, is complemented by what could arguably be the most extensive music collection in the metro.

As if that wasn’t enough, Red Box also gives customers a range of other recreational options that include free and high-speed Wi-Fi access, a pool and poker table and option to use in-house gaming consoles.

In addition, Red Box is a licensee of the Filipino Association of Composers, Authors and Publishers (FILSCAP). This non-profit organization enforces the public performance right and communication to the public right granted by law to copyright owners of musical works.

“Our extensive music collection and sound-engineered rooms made us the top-of-mind entertainment spot among Filipinos. This is why we believe that it is just right to give back to the industry which is the main reason why Red Box has gotten this far—the music industry—and the people behind it,” shares Chu .

When Music Becomes a Lifestyle

Red Box however understands that music has now evolved from being a solitary event to a shared experience.

“It’s something that brings people together. It’s interactive—and Red Box seeks to find ways to bolster this experience,” adds Chu .

It’s rare for music hubs to put so much focus on food and drinks, yet it’s precisely this that allows Red Box to carve a distinct niche for itself in the industry. On any given day, a night out in Red Box means you get to enjoy a diverse selection of Asian, Italian and Western fares and creatively mixed-drinks that could very well rival any gourmet dining destination.

Whether it’s a delightful platter of nachos or a scrumptious plate of crispy pata that you want to start with, Red Box’s gourmet menu selection will definitely have something to whet diverse appetites—best enjoyed of course with specialty drinks like Red Box shooters or signature K-tinis.

Red Box’s growing reputation as a cosmopolitan watering hole has in fact even allowed them to expand their menu with a new line of Asian and California inspired rolls. Ask for the Red Box Sushi Samba on you next visit and you’ll be treated to 12 sumptuous recipes creatively and appropriately named after top musical hits.

The Real Red Box Experience
Indeed, Red Box is all for celebrations, and to date, it continues to be part of their patron’s milestones, special occasions and shared festivities—a fact that the team behind Red Box proudly shares.

“We’ve hosted everything from simple get-togethers, birthdays, anniversaries, even wedding proposals—and we’re so proud and honored to have been part of it all,” Chu adds.

What Red Box has to offer is a comprehensive entertainment experience—one grounded on quality, variety and shared experiences. The idea is almost elegant in its simplicity, but evidently, it works.

Red Box Rock.Dine.Roll is open from Mondays to Sundays. For inquiries and reservations, please dial: 7576188 (Greenbelt ), 3557921 (Eastwood), (032) 4171675 ( Cebu ), and Red Box Star 9018833 (Trinoma).
