Cebu Blogger: Is it your first time to hear "Beach Mall" in Cebu? Particularly in the island of Mactan, Lapu-Lapu specifically within the Mactan Newtown vicinity? Certainly, it is new to my ear too. So, let's uncover what Megaworld is trying to put up. I'm sure this is something that the "Oponganons" will be proud and will make buzz about it. Of course, the mainlanders of Cebu will be eager to check it out too!


This is a 3D-plan of the Beach Mall

Who is the developer of this Beach Mall?


MEGAWORLD is the developer behind the Mactan Newtown and this year they are targeting to build a P1.5-B "Beach Mall" in it that is expected to be completed in 2021. It will be a two-level mall due to its location constraint since it will be along the beachside cliff. So this limitation has to be considered.

What are the amenities of this mall?


Mall goers will expect it built on a shoreline cliff. That sounds thrilling but will see how MEGAWORLD work its magic on it. A man-made lagoon will perhaps form an external centerpiece. There will be a boutique hotel. Do you have any idea what a boutique hotel is? A garden chapel is part of the plan. Of course, you won't call it a mall if there are no retail shops, restaurants and even cinemas in it. I think, the Beach mall can cater to four cinemas.


An al fresco provision for restaurants will be great since one would really enjoy the seaview while enjoying their food and drink and at the same time feeling the ocean breeze swiftly  passing through the vicinity. Definitely, a view deck is perfect when you want to chill and relax or perhaps, be lonely  for some "me" time.


A total gross floor area of 30,000 square meters, the Mactan Newtown Beach Walk will be highlighted by a 1.4-hectare man-made lagoon at the center.

“Megaworld Lifestyle Malls is bringing a fresh, new concept of mall development in Cebu that recreates and innovates the beach lifestyle experience. We take inspiration from some iconic coastline commercial developments in South California, where visitors can enjoy coffee, meet friends over lunch or dinner, watch a movie, or simply shop around in this laid-back beach atmosphere,” explains Kevin L. Tan, chief strategy officer, Megaworld.

The mall complex will also have its three-storey boutique hotel, offering 48 spacious guestrooms with retail shops at its ground level. This will be operated under the Megaworld Hotels brand.

I do believe that this is the first mall in Cebu, Philippines to use solar roof panels for their source of lighting energy or electricity. Talk about sustainability and taking care of the environment by avoiding to deplete our non-renewable energy. I just love the idea of their dedication to green and open spaces. It is not just comforting but it is one step closer to help Mother Earth.

It is a mall you will surely love to take a visit or spend time to with family, friends and love ones. So are you excited for this new project by MEGAWORLD? I am certainly can't wait to check it! 


“We will even have some untouched areas for bike trails, airsoft shooting, and tree-top activities. This part of the Mactan Newtown is abundantly surrounded with trees, and we want to keep them,” adds Tan.

Starting My Cebu Podcast

Cebu Podcast
: Let me share with you my journey on how I ended up doing a podcast from being a professional blogger for years like more than a decade (since 2005). But let me define what a Podcast is.

What's a Podcast?


Podcast is usually a digital audio content that one can listen or download on some audio platforms. It can be a series of episodes or segments. The topics would definitely vary depending on the host/podcaster.

Like my FACEBOOK PAGE for updates!




How do you do Podcast?


Podcasting
is the act of doing an audio content through a recording device like a mobile phone or a recorder. After recording the audio content or could be a video, it needs to be uploaded to a podcast hosting company. And then a podcast feed (URL) will be generated and then you can share it to your prospective audience perhaps on your social media accounts like facebook.

Right now, a number of podcast platforms are making waves hosting podcast contents. Some are familiar to you. These are Spotify and iTunes. Google is now having a podcast feature. There is Overcast. One can listen it over RadioPublic. So a number of ways for your podcast to be heard across these platforms.


My experience as a podcaster


I've started podcasting way back in 2011 and it was hosted on my old defunct personal blog for more than 10 years. Unfortunately, when I changed hosting, I wasn't really able to back up my data so I lost all my audio files and web article contents. It vanished on thin air. It was a depressing moment for me. It took me years to finally decide to get back into it. So September of 2019, I have relaunched my podcast again called Hershey Kisses (click it).

My topics vary. I tap on informative subjects that I'm accustomed with or I'm well-versed or has had experience on it. It allows me to give clear and concrete information perhaps tips, giving pieces of advice on certain topics. Of course, expect it to be a bit fun and not boring (LOL).

So far, the topics I have embraced on are Investing Tips, Financial Literacy, Travel, Business, Life Hacks, Home Improvement, Feng Shui, Promotion, Employment, Marketing, Sex, Lifestyle, Shopping and a lot more.

I would invite you to listen to my podcast, this is the link.

Do You Need the Linksys MR8300 at home?


Theme: Internet Connectivity

Hashtags: #LinksysPh #LinksysMR8300 #GamingMesh #router

Cebu Blogger: The internet has already become a necessity in our modern world and each household would really wanted to be fully-equipped when it comes to wifi connectivity for the entire family to use. How much more if there are "online gamers" in the pack? The house definitely needs to be wifi-capable at each nook of it.

So do we need a high quality router to boost our connectivity that will last us a lifetime in the gaming world? The answer is definitely a YES! Why not, right?

At this point of time, faster speed and ease in getting connected while enjoying our favorite games online should be on top of our Tech checklist.

Like my FACEBOOK PAGE for updates!



Now, I have something that can boost our mobile gaming and home entertainment satisfaction with Linksys' new MR8300 Tri-band Mesh Gaming router.

The MR8300 is a high-performance router that delivers up to 2.2 Gbps of superior speed and is ideal for homes that require massive bandwidth for 4k entertainment and peak mobile gaming. The router is powered by a 716 MHz quad-core processor that improves overall network performance for faster wired, wireless, and WAN to LAN speeds.

Let's check the speedtest while connected to the MR8300 router using Hive Co-working cafe's wifi service.

 

How much is the Linksys MR8300?


The recommended retail price is Php 10,995.
 


 

It can be purchased at the ff:


Complink, Datablitz, Microvalley, Octagon Computer Superstores, PC Worx, Silicon Valley, Villman Computers, and Thinking Tools.


Any promo?


It interested, here's one thing that will keep you thinking about it.

There will be an exclusive launch promotion [Get a Belkin Premium Items + Linksys Card up to Php 8,700 Worth of Freebies from 17 September 2019 to 15 October 2019 or while stocks last].

Who will need it?


This is a product that will best suit for personal (mobile gamers) or home entertainment consumers (medium-sized to large-sized family users) and not of a medium or large scale enterprises. It means, the same quality and functionality but easy to install and much affordable available for the regular customers.


 

Any benchmark test done?


It has been tested by a third party company, Tolly. Result shows that the MR8300 performed at least 71% better than competition routers in a real-world congested environment consisting of six gaming cell phone clients and another 21 active (and idle) devices that were connected to the test routers. MR8300 achieved an average ping-time of 7.3ms against other competitor routers while heavily loaded with mobile gaming clients and background application traffic. For entertainment, MU-MIMO and Beamforming technology also work to ensure that high-performing devices – like smart TVs, laptops and phones – can connect to the Internet through faster and dedicated WiFi channels.

“Asia Pacific accounts for an impressive 47% share of the global mobile gaming market and is set to generate over $72.2 billion by the end of 2019. With this number only set to grow yearly, Linksys is poised to deliver networking solutions that match consumer demands.” said Jason Villados, Linksys Philippines Country Manager. “The MR8300 is a hybrid router that combines high-performance features from our Max-Stream series with the Intelligent Mesh of the award-winning Linksys Velop Mesh WiFi System that has been well-received globally.”


 

Let's get a bit technical here

My personal observation in terms of its aesthetics and design:


Router:


The MR8300 looks like a drone from afar with 4 antennas built-in.

It has tiny square holes or like a mesh on its overall design for air circulation. So be extra careful with liquid spillage!!!

Velop:


The Velop mesh wifi is a series of nodes to ensure wifi signal coverage all throughout the closed space like a home.

It's sleek in design. It pretty much looked like a speaker from a far.

The mesh design will as well allow air flow circulation. And again, avoid liquid spillage to it.

Can we commute in Cebu with ANGKAS app?

Theme: Commuting

Hashtags:
#Angkas #ANGKASCebuSafetyFiesta

You can play this audio on Spotify or iTunes or hit the arrow button.


Cebu Blogger: Majority of us here in Cebu are daily commuters to our jobs and offices. However, the worsening traffic situation in our Visayan metropolis could be daunting and frustrating often times. It does affect our work-life careers when we get tardy or late on meetings. It just draw a lot of negative energies to the very core. But, but, but... we have a solution to help us be on time at work or scheduled business appointment. In terms of commuting, we can install ANGKAS app on our mobile phones!


So what is ANGKAS?


ANGKAS is a mobile-app based motorcycle taxi service that you need to install on a smartphone, get signed up and voila, can be used to book a motorcycle driver to pick you up on your location to your point of destination. Very easy and convenient.

Why book with ANGKAS?


It is the easiest and fastest way to bring you to your destination, beating the traffic! Because of the obvious reason that a motorcycle is a slim vehicle that can swiftly pass through narrow roads or short cuts. Of course, ANGKAS drivers are required to attend seminars on traffic rules, signs and etiquette while driving.


“Angkas is an innovative and timely traffic solution that Cebuanos need and we are happy to offer this service to help commuters reach their destinations in a fast, convenient, and affordable way,” said Angeline Tham, Angkas Founder and CEO.

Is safety a concern for both the driver and passenger? 


Definitely, the ANGKAS company has been working on necessary measures ensuring that their drivers are well educated and self-aware of the proper maneuvering on the road with respect to other drivers and traffic rules ensuring safety of the passengers. Additionally, as a standard procedure, Angkas will provide hair caps and masks to passengers for hygienic purposes. Well, the helmet is a must. If none is provided, passengers can report the driver to ANGKAS' 24 hr customer service line.

What will happen in unfortunate events like road accidents involving the ANGKAS driver and commuter?


Accident insurance and medical assistance will be provided up to Php 450,000 to both passenger and driver. Just to stress out, this is on a reimbursement type. So technically, both will need to shoulder the medical expenses first and get reimbursement after. Of course, the incident has to be reported to their 24 hr customer care hotline and necessary documents might be presented when claiming for reimbursements.

Would I recommend, ANGKAS?


If you know you will be late on your appointments and could probably be caught in traffic,YES! ANGKAS is the key!

Will they cater to delivery of goods and packages?


Yes! I've tried it when I booked them to deliver my bouquets from my Cebu flower shop.


Can you give feedback or ratings to ANGKAS driver?


Yes. All you want.

Is ANGKAS Affordable?


YES. The app will show you the exact fare rate before you will agree to book it. So, if you're good with it, then, what are you waiting?

You can be assured that there is no over charging.

Recent activities with ANGKAS


In line with their effort to ensure the safety of the biker-partners and their passengers, Angkas held the very first “Angkas Safety Fiesta” in Cebu last Sunday at the Plaza Independencia, Cebu City. The 12-hour event, which started at 10 a.m., featured a safety seminar and skills training session for their biker-partners, a dental mission, free haircut and massage for the participants, and a Gymkhana tournament.

The Angkas Safety Fiesta also served as an onboarding activity for new Angkas biker-partners, with the objective of being able to service more Cebuano commuters at a time.

As an added treat for the bikers and their families, a musical concert was held featuring popular artists such as Andrew E. and Cueshe as well as upcoming acts like the D7G Girls, Jay R Siaboc, Crazy Duo Jr., and the Maka Girls. The show, which was hosted by DJ Chixie and DJ Ringo, was open to the public.

“Our over 5,000 Angkas biker-partners in Metro Cebu are more than prepared to take on the task of ferrying commuters to where they need to go,” Olan declared. “And this is just the beginning,” he added, stressing that while traffic continues to plague Metro Cebu, Angkas will continue to help Cebuanos by not only providing an efficient transport option, but also providing a decent means of livelihood for motorcycle owners.

Do Crystals work?

Theme:Crystal Collection

Hashtags: #crystal #CebuCrystals #CebuGems #CebuCharm

 
you may play this audio on SPOTIFY or ITUNES.


Cebu Blogger: When did my fascination with the use of crystals started? It was in 2013 when I started to work homebased for an Australian company who is selling a product called Biomat (a sleeping mat or bed with amethyst crystals embedded inside it to promote healing and good sleep). I was their SEO writer that time. So I went to research more about crystals and it led me to get interested with them. It allowed me to widen my scope on self-studying a variety of crystals with the help of my boss that time.




 here's my collection through the years...


I began collecting different crystals for personal use. That means, I used it for protection in general. I have to protect myself from being energy-drained at work, from SMOGS and EMF or radiation that computers emit. Sometimes, to protect my well-being and psychic attack from people with ill intentions and wishes against me. Or protecting my aura so I will only exude positivity to others.

I have tried meditating with it while praying and it facilitates my wishes and prayers to our Almighty above. Think of a fast-track delivery. The crystals just amplified it. Well, that's what I felt and experience only. It depends on different people too. I also drank water that's charged with crystals for some health benefits and a lot more.

Below, I will introduce you to the crystals that I've collected through the years. I know there are hundreds of crystals or even thousands out there. But I have a few of them and will also state how you can use them in your day-to-day activities.

All About Tablea (Philippine Chocolate)

Theme: Pinoy Chocolate Brands

Hashtags
: #tablea #cocobutter #terroir

 you may play this audio on SPOTIFY or ITUNES. 


Cebu Blogger: Love chocolates? #TheMetroStores Supermarket features local chocolate brands that are the best in the Philippines!
These brands are  Malagos Farm House from Davao, Dalareich Chocolate House from Bohol, Guilang Tableya from Argao, Tablea de Mandaue, Davao de Cacao, Family's Choice Cocoa,
Nutrarich Philippines for Davao Fine Tablea.

And yes, these brands boast pure cacao chocolate (coco butter intact) which is the highest quality kind that consumers could really enjoy.
Definitely, let's support local!
Lami jud bitaw ang PURE and ORIGINAL pinoy tablea.

I learned the difference between chocolate candies (with sugar and milk) that are sold in supermarkets that have been popular to kids and pure cocoa (with coco butter) the Philippines is proud to have which is the real pure cacao chocolate.

The terrior just like coffee and other single origin products is essential in the taste determinant as well as quality of the cacao beans. It is the specific region or soil location there the cacao is planted and may affect the taste or flavor of the chocolates or tablea. 

The Philippines is just lucky to have a climate very suitable to grow it just like those equatorial countries like Mexico or Indonesia or Ghana.

For the taste, Davao may have a "fruity" flavor of their chocolates because of the presence of fruit-bearing trees that grows in the same region of the cacao plant. Bohol will have a more "earthy" ones because they are rich in limestones as well. For those cacao in Batangas,it could be more "nutty" because of the pili nuts that also grow in the area. However, Argao's tablea has a "smokey" flavor because of their primitive ways of roasting cacao using a certain type of dry wood that affects the cacao beans.

Now, we learned something of our chocolate history here in the Philippines in terms of "distinct taste".
We should be proud and more appreciative of the tsokolate our ancestors used to love. Let's drink hot tablea every morning! It's healthy. It has nothing to do with the increase in high blood pressure that is a misconception of a lot of Pinoys. Erase that!
