Enjoy the best of the Pokemon GO worldwide craze with freenet and PayMaya

[21 JULY 2016] Filipinos keenly anticipating the launch of Pokemon GO can now stay updated on the upcoming release of the game in the Philippines and fully enjoy the game when it launches with the help of freenet and PayMaya.

Now a certified worldwide phenomenon, Pokemon GO is a location-based mobile game developed by Niantic Labs in partnership with Nintendo affiliate The Pokemon Company. The mobile game allows players to catch Pokemon or "pocket monsters" as if in real life using the GPS and camera of their smartphones.

The game is currently available in Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK, and select European countries. It has yet to launch in any Asian country, including Japan where the original Pokemon game originated.

Get Pokemon GO updates with freenet
Those who want to stay updated on news about the upcoming release of the game in the Philippines may now download the freenet app on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Through freenet, Smart, TNT, and Sun subscribers will be able to read the latest news and social media feeds from the local Pokemon GO community for free and with no data charges.

This is part of freenet’s mission to enable communities such as those who are eager to play Pokemon GO to stay active and participate in various activities and discussions through digital means.

This follows the successful livestreaming of President Rodrigo Duterte’s inauguration and the Gilas Pilipinas FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament games through freenet, which allowed Filipinos to be digitally present in these historic events even if they are not physically able to do so.

Purchase Pokecoins with PayMaya
Meanwhile, once the Pokemon GO app launches in the Philippines, players will be able to fully enjoy the game through in-app purchases with the help of PayMaya, the easiest way to pay online even without a credit card.

Players only have to download the PayMaya app on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, load up their accounts with at least P60 to cover the standard app store verification fee, and link their virtual VISA card to their app store accounts to be able to make in-app purchases for Pokecoins, the in-app currency used inside the Pokemon GO game.

With the help of Pokecoins, players will be able to purchase various items that will help them easily navigate the game, such as Pokeballs to catch Pokemon with, Pokemon eggs that allow them to “hatch” Pokemon, Potions to restore the health of their Pokemon, and Incense and Lure Modules that make it easy to attract wild Pokemon to their immediate vicinity.

In-app purchases are made more convenient with PayMaya as mobile game players can easily load up at any of the over 15,000 PayMaya reloading stations nationwide that include SM Malls Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-Eleven stores with Cliqq kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO.

Aside from the mobile app, PayMaya customers can also opt to have their own PayMaya physical prepaid card which can be used in brick-and-mortar stores worldwide that accept Visa. A variant also comes with its own beep™ wallet, allowing users to ride the MRT, LRT, some city buses and other beep™-powered transportation for their daily commute, so they can easily explore the city in search of wild Pokemon.

Users who upgrade their PayMaya account can use their PayMaya for peer-to-peer money transfers and ATM withdrawals.

For more information about PayMaya and how users can get their own PayMaya card, visit www.paymaya.com. To know more about the free and fun way to connect through freenet, visit www.freenet.ph

The New Look of Greenwich SM CDO!

I feel so honored to be one of their media guests to experience their new homey feel pizzeria! It's the first here in Cagayan de Oro and eventually it will roll-out with the same concept in other areas too. Good thing I am from CDO uptown because me and my pizza lovers family would always visit and experience an authentic pizzeria feeling just like in Italy. 

This is how it looks like now, a total transformation from the old Greenwich fast-food chain set-up! A new mid-century modern fast food!
grabbed these photos from sightseerpinay.com
The new store concept feautures a lounge, a main dining area, a balcony, a banquet and an enclosed dining space suited for everyone's needs. You can feel a rustic with wooden pizza peels, tin buckets and colorful ceramics interior just to tie the concept together with its goal of making Greenwich a homey feels. As you can see they are using a wood and brick elements just to feel the essence of the new pizzeria. Cool huh!

Aside from their new ambiance, they are also offering their new flavor the New Bacon Crispy Thins! This new pizzza is obviously made of a huge amount of bacon and ham, mushrooms and a lot of mozzarella and cream cheese. Indeed, it is truly baconized and cheesified one! I also had this flavored tried with my kids and guess what? This is now their new favorite pizza flavored!

This young, modern and mid-century industrial neighborhood pizzeria look makes both loyal Greenwich Pizza lovers and curious foodies alike, to be part of the barkada and savor the goodness that is truly world class!

This is purely a review on my experience with SMART online store....

July 2, 2016- I filed for a SMART online application through www.smart.com.ph and have the SMART iPad Plan 799 in my cart. On the same day, I got my email notification for a successful application that was submitted. Two days later, I received another email notifying me that the application that was sent was already validated and now ready for payment. They called me up and asked me the mode of payment and have decided to pay my order last July 4 through SMART money. Day after, I got informed that my iPad is on my way for delivery and to expect it 3-5 days if outside Metro, Manila.

Voila! I received it last July 9, 2016!!!! In just a span of a week, I had my desired gadget on my hand! Thanks to SMART online store for the fast services being offered! Take note: on the same day, the plan is already ACTIVATED!

Now, I can finally say that I am officially SMART postpaid subscriber!!!

Wherever I go, my iPad mini 2 is with me! Thanks once again, thank you

Every 30th of June, social media practitioners celebrate this what we so called "Social Media Day"! It has been a tradition of the CDO Bloggers to participate in this yearly event. This time, it was a double celebration of the organization~ Social Media Day and at the same time our 2nd General Membership Meeting (GMM).

We invited Sir Jon Doblados to talk about "How to Restore Humanity in Social Media". We learned a lot about his topic, and to sum it up: we need to stand together as a people, rebuild, reconnect, reboot and refriend. #TayoPH

Presenting our sponsors for this event: SMART (umbrellas and USBs), BRIA Flats (umbrellas, notepads, ballpens, plastic caps), Organique Soaps, and Pane e Dolce (Sylvannas and Brownies). This was given as a prize to the trivias being given. Thank you so much sponsors, it made our event a memorable and fun night!

Sweet Crafts Cafe in CdeO

8:41 PM 0 Comments A+ a-

Last Tuesday (June 28, 2016), we were invited by Sir Felven (friend of Ma'am Honey- the store owner) for a Calligraphy session but due to Ma'am Honey's busy schedule we were not able to do it that day but instead re-scheduled it on July 6 at 3 PM.

Anyway, our Tuesdate was still a "fun-craftsy" afternoon and a "sweetilicious" one! Sir Felven (aka Sir Cram), introduced us about the stuffs inside the cozy cafe of Ma'am Honey. It started out from her passion of collecting different artsy-craftsy stuffs since high-school to name a few from stationaries, stamps, ballpens, scissors, punchers, organizers, colorpens and etc. But hey look! Out from those little artsy-craftsy passion stuffs that she have, voila! an additional income on her part! That is why, she was able to come-up with this kind of business.

This cozy shop is not just for those creative people who love arts and crafts alone, but this is open to all who loves sweets as well . That is why it is called Sweet Crafts cafe...Two passion rolled into one!

Miss Cybelle (friend of the store-owner) is the woman behind all these Sugar Rush MilkShakes below....

Oreo Vanilla Addiction for only Php 169

KitKat Brain Freeze for only Php 169

Java Chip Sugar Rush for only Php 120

Sugar Coma de Ferrero for only Php 199 (Best- Seller)

To sum it up, we really had a "fun-craftsy" afternoon and a "sweetilicious" one! The milkshakes taste were simply the BEST! It's not that really sweet at all but the toppings? oh gracious goodness, it feels like heaven's taste!

good laughs with good friends...

 Once again, thank you for having us here and for the loyalty card as well. :)

By the way they also serve snacks and meals as well....
The store opens at 10AM and closes at 9PM.
