Starbucks whips up Harry Potter’s Butterbeer

threefriends

Muggles rejoice! We may yet be able to have a taste of the famous Butterbeer of Hogsmeade. This concoction comes as a frappuccino and not offically licenced to the Harry Potter franchise but I guess this will do until we are able to cross-over to the wizarding world.

While it isn’t advertised nationally, it is said that Starbucks is allowing customers to order the famous Harry Potter Butterbeer — so long as you provide them this recipe.

Review: The Bluebird of Happiness

 

review-poster-1

Manila, Philippines, October 4, 2013. A long-delayed follow-up to 2009’s N.O.A.H. (No Ordinary Aquatic Habitat), Trumpets’ new production “The Bluebird of Happiness,” a musical adaptation of Maurice Maeterlinck’s play of the same name, featuring music by Rony Fortich and book and lyrics by Jaime del Mundo, tells a story set on Christmas Eve, at the height of the frustration of siblings Mytyl and Tyltyl over not having the material things they think would make their lives better. It is a scene that is familiar not only among children but even adults. Mytyl and Tyltyl’s frustration is a reminder of lives that are driven by making ends meet or by achieving material wants that makes us lose sight of the very things that should have made us happy in the first place.

In the season of giving, it is ironic that this is also the time when people’s discontent and despair seem to manifest the most. And as these kids go on a quest to find true happiness through past and future, through greed and luxury, and through darkness and light, we go along with them realizing our own penchant for always wanting more than what we have. Through wondrous music and a spectacular production, “The Bluebird of Happiness” reconnects us with simple joys that provide more meaning in our lives than any material possession can offer.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is now available for digital downloads

FFXIV

After almost forever in gamer years of being pulled out due to unprecedented demand, Final Fantasy XIV is finally available for digital downloads today, 9/16/2013.

Sales have initially halted this August after FFXIV’s re-launch due to server instability. Those who were lucky enough to get a copy have been suffering through log-in restrictions and other emergency measures placed to keep the servers from exploding.

Digital downloads for FFXIV are now available at Square Enix or Amazon for $29.99 only. If you do not have a credit card, you may easily set-up a GLOBE GCASH American Express® Virtual Pay account and use it for hassle-free online purchases. Alternatively, you may get the boxed copy (price could be a little bit higher from your friendly-neighborhood Datablitz), but I hear that one is perennially out of stock.

Joyce Ramirez talks PR strategy, INTERXN and her big switch to GLOBE Telecom

High profile public relations practitioner Joyce Ramirez, who enjoys as much popularity, celebrity status and following as the brands and endorsers that she has handled, talked to us about her latest digital media management venture, her strategy in handling the infamous black ops in social media, and her big switch to GLOBE Telecom after a quick but memorable stint with the competing network.

Joyce has three (3) agencies to date: PR ASIA – the mothership agency which handles traditional and digital PR with offices in Manila & Bangkok; Creative Media Group – a Los Angeles based unit that brokers entertainment deals such as Hollywood endorsers (as well as overseas production shoot management); and most recently INTERXN – a digital media management group that handles some of the biggest digital influencers in the country today.
