Doctor Strange

I am looking forward to a free movie tomorrow night at the Shangri-La Cineplex courtesy of Nuffnang Philippines and Cadbury Dairy Milk. I won 2 tickets to Marvel’s latest movie “Doctor Strange” (along with 49 other Nuffnang bloggers).

Thank you again for the free movie tickets! #FreeTheJoy #CadburyChristmas

#FreeTheJoy with Limited Edition Cadbury Dairy Milk Christmas Flavors

Wow! The 3 flavors of Cadbury are back! I’m so delighted and ecstatic that these 3 limited edition Cadbury Dairy Milk flavors are back!

We have the Cadbury Black Forest, Cadbury French Vanilla and Cadbury Chocolate Mousse. These three limited edition Cadbury Dairy Milk flavors are perfect gifts this Christmas to the three people in my life – my older brother Ando, my sister-in-law Joan and my niece Trisha. They are also the 3 best people to spend the day watching the latest Marvel movie – Dr Strange.

If I would give each of them a box of Cadbury Dairy Milk, I would choose to give the following since it will match their taste and personality:

Cadbury 1

For my Kuya Ando – since he’s into textured sweets, Cadbury Dairy Milk Black Forest fits his taste profile.

It still has the Cadbury Dairy Milk’s smooth sensation but it comes with real chocolate cookies and red jellies. It’s definitely crunchy and chewy – perfect to keep you company during the holiday traffic madness!

Cadbury 2

For my sister-in-law Joan, since she like surprises, Cadbury Dairy Milk French Vanilla is the perfect pair this Christmas for her.

As you bite into this exquisite flavor, you plunge into the smooth, soft, silky center filled with light and delectable French vanilla cream. This sophisticated flavor is definitely a revelation this season.

Cadbury 3

My niece Trisha is definitely looking for a richer chocolatey taste this Christmas! To elevate her tastebuds, I would give the delicate decadence of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Mousse.

With its light and airy chocolate-flavored cream enveloped in classic milk chocolate shell, you will definitely be begging your secret Santa for more.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Black Forest, Cadbury Dairy Milk French Vanilla, and Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Mousse are available in 180g packs for a suggested retail price of P180.00. Hurry and get all flavors – available until supplies last! #FreeTheJoy this Christmas with Cadbury Dairy Milk!

The Pamintuan Mansion In Pictures

Finally, I was able to visit Angeles City a few months ago. It’s on my bucket list of places to visit in Luzon. It’s a great place to travel with its rich culture and architecture. Angeles City is home to the Holy Rosary Church, Holy Angel University and the Pamintuan Mansion, among others.

Last August 24, 2015 it was renamed the Museum of Social Science and History of the Philippines. The proponent of this project was the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP). The Pamintuan Mansion is located at the corner of Santo Entierro and Miranda Streets, which is part of the heritage district of Angeles City.

The Pamintuan Mansion was built by Mariano Pamintuan and Valentina Torres in 1890. It was a wedding gift to their son Florentino. It was the headquarters of Gen Antonio Luna in 1899 at the same time, the seat of the Philippine Republic. It’s also famous as the venue of the 1st Anniversary of the declaration of Philippine Independence (June 12, 1899). It was also used by Gen Arthur MacArthur in 1899 as his headquarters.

You could read the rest of the history of the Pamintuan Mansion here.

The Pamintuan Mansion also served as a Regional Office of The Central Bank of the Philippines from 1993 to 2009. They bought the mansion in 1981 and mansion was officially turned over to the NHCP on June 17, 2010. Thus it has a vault inside the mansion.
