The store is decked out end-to-end in artworks, design fixtures, and memorabilia that commemorate the beloved sport.

"This store will help take the future of basketball culture to the next level by inspiring our new generation, through the legacy of Jordan," says Jino Ferrer, Nike Philippines' country marketing manager in a statement.

There will also be designs from eight globally acclaimed artists, which will be used to customize laces, dubraes, aglets and tees.

To enjoy the film, guests are encouraged to bring a 3.5 mm standard jack earphone.

Many of us (including myself) dreamt of traveling not only in our beautiful country, the Philippines, but across the globe. Who doesn't want to have the leisure of exploring different places and get unforgettable experience from each country you visit in? Yes, we want that yet our pockets won't agree to it most of the time.

Traveling without money is almost impossible. But thanks to this kind of resort, we can at least get a piece of popular attractions around the world.

Finally, after 10 months!

Jollibee announced on Friday that they are bringing back the classic Champ after phasing it out back in January.

I was one of the big fan of this burger for years and I was deeply affected by their announcement start of 2020. Champ, Jolly Spaghetti and French Fries are my most ordered food from Jollibee. That's why it really saddened me when they said they have phased out the burger way back January.
But, hell yeah, it seems to turn my day 360 degrees the time I've heard the news!

“We’re very happy to bring back a product that has received so much clamor from its loyal fans. The return of the Jollibee Champ is a result of the passionate clamor for everyone’s favorite langhap-sarap BIG burger made even better with two new variants to satisfy more cravings for different flavors,” says Jollibee AVP.

Aside from the big comeback, Jollibee also introduced two new variants of the beloved burger: the Amazing Aloha Champ and the Bacon Champ.

Another great news is that Jollibee is also bringing back Ultimate Burger Steak!

Jollibee Marketing team said they were met with "an overwhelming response to its phase out last January" so they made the decision to return it to its menu.


The Champ will be available in over 300 stores starting October 30. The classic Champ is available solo starting at P150, while the Bacon Champ and Amazing Aloha Champ are at P185 and P199, respectively. The Ultimate Burger Steak meal prices start at P150.

This road will benefit many not only travelers but the locals of Quezon Province and nearby places. 

The Department of Public Works and Highways is about to fully complete its multi-year road widening project along Lucban-Majayjay Road in the municipality of Lucban, Quezon Province.

LOCALS BENEFIT FROM WIDENED LUCBAN-MAJAYJAY ROAD IN QUEZON PROVINCE 

DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar said the road improvement project which was implemented since 2016 is now on its fiftth and final segment with only remaining works at a 260-meter section in Barangay Ayuti.

“At present, motorists are reaping the benefits of a widened 3.32-kilometer portion of Lucban-Majayjay Road in Barangays Igang, Samil, and Ayuti,” said Secretary Villar.


With the completion of the entire project, locals and visitors alike will further enjoy an uninterrupted wide road passing through scenic rice fields.

It will further support the increasing influx of tourist arrivals in the Municipality of Lucban, Quezon and its adjacent towns and cities.

Lucban, Quezon tourism spots include Kamay ni Jesus Healing Church, Majayjay Falls, Mt. Banahaw, and Pahiyas Museum Art Center among others.

Motorists have been given more time to have radio-frequency identification (RFID) stickers installed on their vehicles after the Department of Transportation (DOTr) pushed the start of the mandatory cashless transaction in all toll expressways from November 2 to December 1.

“Sa ngayon, pwede pang magbayad ng cash but after that, patatabihin sila paglagpas ng toll at i-install-an sila ng RFID (For now, they can still pay the toll using cash but after that, they will be asked to park on the side of the road and have an RFID installed on their vehicle),” DOTr Assistant Secretary Goddes Hope Libiran said in a message on Wednesday.

The extension is to prevent the long queues currently experienced at toll roads “in the rush to get RFID stickers,” Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) Executive Director Abraham Sales said in a media bulletin.

Sales, however, noted that the deadline would no longer be extended beyond December 1.

“Secretary (Arthur) Tugade allowed the extension in order to give motorists, especially infrequent toll road users, more time to comply with the department order,” he said.

Motorists who enter toll expressways with no RFID by December 1 and beyond “will be apprehended and issued a citation ticket,” the TRB said.

DOTr Assistant Secretary Mark Steven Pastor asked motorists to make use of the extended deadline and have RFIDs installed on their vehicles as early as they can.

“Iwasan natin ‘yung kung kailan isang linggo na lang, saka tayo magmamadaling magpunta sa installation sites para magpakabit ng RFID. Now, we are extending the deadline to give further consideration. Let us use the extension wisely,” Pastor said.

Earlier, the TRB assured that the Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. and the San Miguel Corp. – the two operators and maintenance providers of the country’s toll expressways – are equipped and ready to implement mandatory cashless transactions and have extended the installation of RFID stickers beyond November 2.

The DOTr earlier issued Department Order 2020-012, directing the implementation of cashless toll collections at all expressways and major toll roads to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 in road transportation.

What happens if motorists try to enter toll gates without RFID on Dec 1?

Motorists who fail to install a radio-frequency identification (RFID) sticker in their vehicles before entering an expressway or a toll road would be issued citations and fined after the December 1 deadline for mandatory cashless transactions in toll roads.

In a message to reporters Wednesday, Department of Transportation (DOTr) Assistant Secretary Goddes Hope Libiran said the Land Transportation Office (LTO) is looking at issuing citations to these drivers based on Republic Act No. 4136 and DOTr Joint Administrative Order (JAO) No. 2014-01.

Disobedient drivers, she said, can be issued a ticket for “disregarding traffic signs,” a violation under JAO No. 2014-01 with a PHP1,000 fine.

“Since may nakalagay na RFID-only lane pero pumasok pa rin ‘yung sasakyan (Since there’s a sign saying ‘RFID-only’ lane but the vehicle still tried to enter),” Libiran said.

Klook.com
She said an obstruction violation, with a corresponding PHP1,000 fine, can also be issued to a driver who attempts to enter a toll road since they will get stuck behind a toll barrier and obstruct the flow of traffic.

The DOTr said the deadline for the measure would no longer be extended.

Whenever I think of Tagaytay, it gives me more reason to drink coffee. Why? Simple. It's cold. And a hot coffee or chocolate is the best way to chill.

Did you know that there's a lot of cafes in Tagaytay? That's just one obvious reason why coffee won't be left behind in the city. In fact, Starbucks Coffee, for example, has at least five (5) branches (I know) in Tagaytay City. (Also check my list of different coffee shops in Tagaytay.)

Although Starbucks is widely known and already scattered all over Metro Manila (I call it 'Jollibee of coffee'), visiting one of their stores in Tagaytay will give you a different experience. Let me show you.

So here I list five of Starbucks branches in Tagaytay:
Loading...

Hill Slope

First in the list is this Starbucks Coffee branch located at the ridge part of Tagaytay. It offers a breathtaking view of Taal Lake from a far. You can see the lake and the volcano island from inside and the veranda of the store. So make sure to bring your best camera for your selfies!

Address: Purok 162 Tagaytay - Calamba Rd, Tolentino West, Tagaytay City [ HOW TO GET THERE ]

Magallanes Food Strip

Another Starbucks near the ridge is this one located across the corner of Magallanes Dr. along Tagaytay-Nasugbu Hi-way. It is a 2-level coffee shop that offers a different perspective of Taal Lake. 

Address: Tagaytay - Nasugbu Hwy, Tagaytay, Cavite [ HOW TO GET THERE ]

Domicillo Design

This might be the most favorite branch of Starbucks in Tagaytay (I personally do, too). It is one of the 3 stores near or located at the ridge part where you can enjoy a view of Taal Lake. The edge of Domicillo Design is the most perfect spot for Taal sightseeing. You can even see the lake even from the inside of the store.

Address: Aguinaldo Highway, Km 58 Tagaytay - Nasugbu Hwy, Tagaytay, Cavite [ HOW TO GET THERE ]

Robinsons Summit Ridge

Instead of the ridge, this Starbucks store is located at one of the shopping centers in Tagaytay. Robinsons Summit Ridge is a place where you can stay at a hotel, shop your essentials, dine-in with your favorite food and get a cup of coffee at your convenience.

If you are going to or from Sky Ranch, this branch is the nearest for you.

Address: Aguinaldo Highway Level 1 Space no. 109 Promenade, Tagaytay [ HOW TO GET THERE ]

Ayala Malls Serin

Located inside an outdoor mall, this Starbucks is probably one of the most accessible branches in Tagaytay. You have the convenience of shopping, dining and relaxing at one place at Ayala Malls Serin. It's a perfect way to end your day by taking a seat, chit-chat with your friends and sip your favorite frappe here.

Address: G/F Ayala Malls Serin, Tagaytay - Nasugbu Hwy, Silang Junction South, Tagaytay, Cavite [ HOW TO GET THERE ]

Which of these you think you would visit first? Let me know in the comment section! :)

If you are a chocolate lover, you can try and visit Kuuma Kaakao instead.
