REDISCOVER 5S (for January 6 – 12, 2014)

Yes, 5S: Starting this new year, I am posting here my picks for:

Scenes (Films, theater)
Servings (Food, drinks)
Sights (Destinations, festivities, holidays, landmarks, places)
Soothe (Relaxation, rejuvenation, wellness)
Sounds (Concerts, music)

Yes, I thought that if I have the time and the budget, I will experience such in a week. And if I did, I will post a review after. It’s about sharing experience — all through 5s. And if you have recommendations, let me know.

And for starters, here are my picks:

Servings: Red Buffalo Wings and Pizza

It has been almost two years since I last tried this, ergo the craving. From what I remember, the food tasted good. The serving is right (for my appetite at least). And to cater to the BPO crowd in Eastwood (its second and newest branch, located at G/F Eastwood City Walk 1, Eastwood Cyberpark, E. Rodriguez Jr. Ave. Bagumbayan, Quezon City), Red Buffalo Wings and Pizza offers Solo Lunch Meal of RB Wings (3 pcs. wings with rice for PHP105.00; add PHP30.00 for 14 oz. House Blend Iced Tea)  and RB Fried Chicken ( 1 pc. fried chicken with rice for PHP 105.00; add PHP30.00 for 14 oz. House Blend Iced Tea).

It also has RB Lunch Group Meals (Group A has 10 pcs. wings, choice of Three-cheese and Garlic or Pepperoni pizza, Chicken Alfredo, home-made fries, and 1.5L Coke for PHP795.00 or  Group Meal B of 10 pcs. wings, All Meat Pizza or RB’s Special, Spaghetti & Meatballs, home-made fries and 1.5L Coke for PHP895.00).

The lunch meals promo is available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and not valid on holidays. Their pioneer branch is located at Unit 11 Greenhills Towncenter, #2 Granada St., Valencia, Quezon City.

Sights: Feast of Black Nazarene

Thursday, January 9, 2014 is the feast day of the Black Nazarene. The annual religious festivities draw millions of crowd — from devotees, tourists — even skeptics. The procession lasted to almost 24 hours in recent years. The casualties from the procession are also increasing. Traffic is at its heaviest. But despite such, many still flock to at least get a glimpse of the miraculous image.

Here is a link for traffic updates for this year’s procession.

My personal take on the occasion is posted here.

Soothe: January Zumba Party

Help shed those unwanted weight gained over the holidays as SM City Fairview holds a zumba party on January 11, 18, and 25, 2014, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at The Palm Drive. For details, check the mall’s Facebook page.

Sounds: “The Four Seasons”

The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO) kicks off 2014 with its fifth concert for its current season. Dubbed “The Four Seasons,” it will feature Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and Nielsen’s Symphony No. 2, “The Four Temperaments” under the baton of the national orchestra’s music director and chief conductor, Olivier Ochanine. Soloist will be Joanna Ruth Livioco on violin (and another soloist to be announced, according to Ticketworld).
