The Biggest Pool Party in the Philippines

Have this ever crossed your mind, a pool party like in Vegas? with disco music, colorful  laser lights and playful fountain as your background... oh dear life " this is totally awesome party".

One unforgettable summer night experience happened last April 28, 2012 at AQUATICA & LIQUID Pool and Lounge  in Manila Ocean Park. Hundreds of  guests, invited bloggers and media partners luckily experienced this one of a kind party, AQUA "the coolest event by the bay area".


AQUA in the CITY

What's so great about a heat wave? It's the perfect excuse to come up with a summer pool party!

 On April 28, dress up in your best summer fashion and have a fantastic time at Manila Ocean Park. We are bringing out all the elements to make AQUA – the coolest event by the bay area. Swim and groove the night away as the sun sets at 5pm onwards. See pumped-up performance from top local bands Silent Sanctuary, Tanya Markova, Moonstar 88 and more. Have some refreshing drinks at Liquid Pool Bar and Lounge and listen to the pulsating beats of house music and club DJ. Be part of the grand launch of Brand magazine - the newest hip publication in town.

Check out over 5,000 breathtaking marine life species at the Oceanarium and marvel as you see live penguins for the first time in Trails to Antarctica. Meet adorable South American sealions in the Sealion Show and be mesmerized with graceful dancing fairies of the sea in Jellies Exhibit. At nighttime, a fusion of laser lights, water screens and other special effects are the highlights of the spectacular AQUA Musical Fountain Show.

AQUA is an event you can't miss since this is the introduction of the latest technology to make Manila Ocean Park the first high-tech theme park in the country. The park has recently launched instant information download through mobile phone and other digital enhancements for guests' ease of access and convenience. Avail of an e-wrist tag that lets you access Facebook and Twitter in real time. You can post status updates and share to your friends while having fun in different attractions.

Home Mavericks: A Destination for Design

Think global. Sell local. A brazen and ambitious manifesto for a furniture store – and one by which Home Mavericks proudly stands by. 

The home furnishings and pieces on display in their showroom along Arnaiz Ave. (across New World Hotel) are exclusively Cebu-made and typically end up in the living spaces of design-savvy New Yorkers and Londoners. Quite often, the stamp of “world-class quality” associated with Cebu furniture pieces has become synonymous with being “for export only”. But Home Mavericks begs to differ: high-quality Filipino design should also make their way to Filipino homes, not bypass them. It’s an honest bid to democratize design, and an inspired way to celebrate Filipino ingenuity and craftsmanship.
Imagine coming home to your loft in Rockwell or The Fort after a hectic day and sitting back on a chaise lounge that you’d normally find in a West Elm or Ralph Pucci outlet in New York. Smiling, you close your eyes, adrift in domestic bliss. Priceless moments like this are what the folks behind Home Mavericks strongly feel that Filipinos are entitled to enjoy. 


Mt. Pinatubo with the Happy Team

This is my first ever adventure with the happy team, The TEAM INJURY,   A 4x4 ride for more  than 18 kilometres and trekking going to the crater that takes you for about one and a half hour or two, same way going back to the city was amazing. 

It was indeed another one of the best journeys I've had, the great memories together with new found friends is priceless. I am looking forward for more adventures with them. Gracias! 

With our new Found French Friend Veronique  and the local tour guides.
