Families Reinvent the Disney Experience with Globe At Home

 Families Reinvent the Disney Experience with Globe At Home

On top of fast and reliable home internet connection, Globe At Home also offers its customers a world full of exciting freebies and perks. For one, they get access to a lot of exclusive Globe At Home events and activities all year round, which they can enjoy with the whole family. Recently, parents were able to recreate magical experiences at home with “Disney’s Unboxing Celebrations”.

Families had the opportunity to reinvent bonding with their kids by partaking in a fun arts and crafts workshop featuring actor Marco Borromeo, where he showed them simple ways to create Disney crafts items featuring fan-favorite characters from things they can easily find at home. 

Singer Moira Dela Torre also treated the guests to a storytelling session.

The highlight of it all was the virtual meet and greet with Mickey and Minnie, last December 27 where lucky customers had the chance to say hello and take photos with the special guests.

“Spending the holidays at home this year was a bit of a challenge since we still want to make it a memorable day especially for the kids. Fortunately, Globe At Home and Disney brought Unboxing Experiences for the whole family to enjoy including this virtual meet and greet featuring our favorite Disney characters,” shared Nikki Serquina, one of the parent attendees during the event.

Celebrities including the Arellanos with Iya, Drew, and Primo, and Neri Miranda also joined in the fun! 

“No trips to Disney right now so we felt very lucky and happy to at least get a taste of it through this Unboxing Celebrations experience thanks to Globe,” Iya shared in her Instagram post.

Neri also shared how delighted her son Miggy and sister Pia were when the Disney guests talked to them one on one. “Iba ang experience sa #GlobePaskuhanAtHome,” she wrote on Instagram

It was surely a day to remember not just for the little ones but also their parents! It just shows that with creativity and resourcefulness, we can still  reinvent our celebrations right at home. With that, make sure to watch out for more exciting activities with Disney exclusively for Globe At Home subscribers in the coming months.

Shop for gifts and reward yourself this holiday season with Robinsons Rewards


Make your Christmas shopping stress-free and rewarding with Robinsons Rewards.

Shop for gifts and reward yourself this holiday season with Robinsons Rewards

Despite how crazy the year has been, the arrival of the holidays is something that has been keeping Filipinos hopeful and excited. After all, ‘tis the season to be joyful and grateful for being able to stay safe with loved ones and overcoming the challenges brought by 2020. While Christmas celebrations are going to be different this year, many are still looking forward to doing their gift shopping for friends and family.


Here are some useful tips and reminders to help make holiday shopping safe and stress-free:


Plan and create a Christmas list

Just like how Santa has his own registry of names, shoppers can also make their own list of who to give presents to and what kinds of gifts they would like. Make it organized by grouping them into categories such as immediate family members, loved ones, friends, and even inaanak (godchildren). This makes it easier and saves time when browsing for gifts, and helps make sure that no one is left behind without any presents.


Add to online cart

People are still encouraged to stay safe indoors, especially that the threat of the pandemic is still looming around. While there may be items that can only be purchased in-store, it is wise to check online shopping sites to see if they carry what you are looking for.  It’s also convenient because there is the option of having the gift delivered straight to the receiver - just make sure that it’s not cash on delivery so they won’t be surprised! In Robinsons Rewards App, you can browse and shop for gift options and earn points from ecommerce sites like GoRobinsons, Shopwise, Toys”R”Us, Marketplace, and Robinsons Appliances.


Be on the lookout for sales and get online coupons

Another benefit of shopping online is that shoppers can save money by availing deals and discounts! Many brands are doing Christmas sales. If you’re looking for new devices such as phones, laptops, or tablets, you can check out the Aerophone discount promo for Robinsons Rewards members.

Redeem points from your rewards programs

And who says you should only give gifts to others? For an extra rewarding shopping experience, you can also treat yourself to a present that you deserve with Robinsons Rewards. Members who have earned enough points can use it to pay for any product that they want at Robinsons stores - whether it’s a new bag, another set of trendy shoes, or the latest fashionable clothing items.


Meanwhile, those who have yet to join the rewards program can start earning points through their purchases by downloading the Robinsons Rewards mobile app and signing up for free. They can also go to their nearest Robinsons store and buy a Robinsons Rewards Card at the Customer Service/Cashier for only Php 100.


To redeem or transact with points, just simply present your phone and scan the merchant QR code using the Robinsons Rewards app or scan barcode on the Robinsons Rewards Classic Card.


So what are you waiting for? It’s the perfect time to shop, earn, and use those hard-earned Robinsons Rewards points to treat yourself for a job well done this year. The Robinson Rewards app is available for free download via iOS App Store, Google Play Store, and Huawei App Gallery.

The joy and appreciation of family togetherness is at the heart of Jollibee’s new Christmas campaign

Directed by Pepe Diokno, Jollibee's new video gives a reminder that being with your family brings an unparalleled sense of joy even in these challenging and difficult times.

The joy and appreciation of family togetherness is at the heart of Jollibee’s new Christmas campaign


The country’s beloved fast-food chain recently launched a new campaign in time for the Christmas season that reminds everyone that amid these trying times, being with family is one of the things that we ought to be most grateful for.

The new short film, done in collaboration with its creative agency McCann Worldgroup Philippines and directed by Pepe Diokno, tells a heart-warming story of gratitude, joy and love for family as seen through the eyes of a child.  Using a real-life family as talents and with an accompanying original song composition, Jollibee aims to convey that despite all that we are going through, our family will remain as our greatest source of joy.  
The film captures what a typical Pinoy household looks like in today’s new normal. Familiar scenes of parents working from home, students busy with online classes, and grandparents restricted to the confines of home.
But as the video progresses it also reveals to us another undeniable truth; that this pandemic also comes with a silver lining. This is the renewed appreciation and rediscovered joy for what is most important --the priceless quality time that we can now enjoy with our family. And as the approaching Christmas season will probably be celebrated in a more intimate and simpler way, the fact that it can be shared together with a whole, healthy, and happy family is something that people are and should continue to be most grateful for.
“It may be difficult to find joy in every day amid these trying times, and especially as we’re accustomed to festive gatherings during the Christmas season. But this period also reminded us to view what’s happening from the eyes of a child and treasure what we have in our lives right now   — it’s family, the love and joy we share, and the heart-warming support we provide one another,” said Jollibee Foods Corporation Philippines Country/Regional Marketing head and concurrent PH Marketing Head, Francis Flores.
Celebrate the warmth of family with Jollibee’s new video that you can watch on Jollibee Studios and the Jollibee Philippines official Facebook page.

Cake Creations: The Heart of Special Celebrations

Heart Evangelista shares with us how we can make our loved ones’ important moments more special despite the pandemic

Heart Evangelista. With her many talents and all that she has accomplished in and out of showbiz, perhaps unknown to many is that she’s also quite down to earth, with a sweet and soft spot for her loved ones. Even with all the uncertainties that we all are facing, Heart believes that there are many reasons why we must honor and celebrate our loved ones especially on their most special moments. Celebrating in a special way the important milestones in our and our loved ones’ lives - birthdays, anniversaries, or holiday get-togethers — is one way to show our love. 

Heart Evangelista

Red Ribbon’s newest endorser Heart Evangelista believes that we must honor and celebrate our loved ones on their most special moments— milestones when we can truly express our love through Red Ribbon Cake Creations.

“I know we face very challenging times,” Evangelista says. “But, amid all of this, there’s always a reason for us to be grateful, to treasure and appreciate the times we get to spend with those we love—even if it’s just, say, a video call for example. Because it’s our family, our friendships, the memories that are truly precious. So, why not show your love by adding a special touch—a delightful treat—to these priceless moments?”

Thus, it comes as no surprise that Heart Evangelista is the newest endorser of Red Ribbon Cake Creations – the brand’s line of impressively delectable round cakes! Making every moment sweeter, every milestone more memorable & special, Red Ribbon Cake Creations is truly the heart of every Filipino’s special celebrations.

There’s Red Ribbon’s classic Black Forest — a luscious chocolate cherry-creamy masterpiece. With layers of decadent, moist chocolate fudge cake layered with fluffy cream and delectable chocolate cherry filling, topped with chocolate shavings and cherries.

Bursting with creamy caramel cake goodness, the newest addition to Red Ribbon’s Cake Creations line, Yema Caramel cake, is made from delectable chiffon cake layered with creamy, melt-in-your-mouth yema caramel icing and filling, garnished with toasted cashew nuts.

Last, but definitely not the least, is the Tiramisu Meltdown - made with choco chiffon, cream cheese, and just a hint of coffee flavor.

Indeed, as Heart Evangelista says, cherishing those special moments with loved ones is something we must learn to cultivate especially in times like these. And with Red Ribbon Cake Creations, we can truly make these occasions even more special!

Red Ribbon Cake Creations is available nationwide for take-out, call & pick up in Red Ribbon branches near you, or for delivery through the Red Ribbon Hotline #87777, and Red Ribbon RIA on Facebook Messenger. You can also order through GrabFood, Foodpanda or LalaFood apps.
