September 2009

Are you tired of just ranting about your company rules?

My friend Nica Dumlao informed me that the Employees’ League in ICT-enabled Services (E-Lites) is sponsoring a Seminar-Workshop for workers in the Business Process Outsourcing industry this Saturday and Sunday (September 19 & 20) at Gems Hotel in Antipolo City.

She also said that the aforementioned event will be about the Philippine Labor Code, International Labor Standards, and Occupational Safety & Health. The event is entirely free of charge.

E-Lites is the group behind the free concert event for BPO employees at the Penguin Bar in Malate last year.

UPDATE: For those interested in reserving a slot, simply proceed to Chowking Cubao (beside Eurotel) 10am on Saturday and text/call me at 09167706376 or email me (

I learned from my blogger-friend Brian Ong that The Lobby of The Peninsula Manila turns 33 today, and they are offering their halo halo harana, pancit luglog and schueblig  at 1976 prices (yes, 33 pesos each), the date the hotel opened 33 years ago.

I also learned that the promotion will be strictly on no-reservations and first-come/first-serve basis and that drinks and items not on the rollback list will be regularly priced.They also won’t allow takeout orders and sharing. This will be a one-day only promotion only from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

I hope my Makati-based (either as residents or employees) friends could grab this opportunity since my chances are dim. Haha.
