Baker's Central Naga

Tita mode on!!! I bought myself a condiments bottle organizer at Baker's Central - Naga City!  It comes in 4s and is way sooo affordable compared to another store here in Naga. 

Sharing something to you about Baker’s Central along Dinaga St. Going there was like an experience of a kid going in a toy store. Itong parang dakulon ako gusto pero dai pa man pwede o dai pa kaya kasi I don’t have the tools yet because one of my frustrations is indeed baking.

Baker’s Central has 7-๐™”๐™š๐™–๐™ง๐™จ ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ช๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ฎ ๐™€๐™ญ๐™ฅ๐™š๐™ง๐™ž๐™š๐™ฃ๐™˜๐™š with its main office in Paranaque offering a wide selection of ๐™‡๐™Š๐™’ ๐™‹๐™๐™„๐˜พ๐™€๐˜ฟ ๐™„๐™๐™€๐™ˆ๐™Ž๐˜ฝ๐˜ผ๐™†๐™€๐™'๐™Ž ๐˜พ๐™€๐™‰๐™๐™๐˜ผ๐™‡ ๐™‰๐˜ผ๐™‚๐˜ผ is not just for your baking needs.

Ask and you shall be toured around tatabangan ka ninda which is better, si ma swak sa budget mo pero quality man giraray ang product.

For parents, kung may particular ingredient ang saindong mga chikiting sa Home Economics na subject, Baker’s Central is also a very good source for it. Pati nadin si mga HRM or Hospitality Management students, this is the store for you!

If there’s a particular ingredient or tool that you really need, they will actually help you look for it at a competitive or even low price.

Filinvest Land, one of the country’s largest developers, have identified Naga as their new growth center. The green real estate developer have set sights on the Queen City of Bicol with an exciting, new residential project targeted for launch by the latter half of the year. 

Filinvest Land will be bringing in Its smart-value Futura by Filinvest brand to Naga to create a low-density, green and sustainably mid-rise condo community. This new development is aligned with Dreams Built Green - Filinvest Land's commitment to continue creating green and sustainable communities that advocate for the well-being of its residents.

"We are proud and excited to bring our blueprint of green and sustainable communities to Bicolanos. By bringing their home closer to nature, we wish to inspire our residents to lead healthier lifestyles. Wherever we are, we follow the very same ethos that has guided Filinvest through numerous successes in its over 50 years of experience - creating green and sustainable communities," said Tristan Las Marias, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Filinvest Land.

This new green condo community will form part of a bigger mixed-use development at the Heart of Naga City. The company is setting aside over P1 billion to invest in this 1.9 hectare development. 

"Naga is one of the country's fastest growing cities in the country and is no doubt the center of commerce and culture of Bicol. Our investment in Naga does not only exemplify our relentless commitment to building the Filipino dream across the archipelago but also cements what we hope to be a close partnership with Naga from now on," said Las Marias.

Filinvest Land boasts of a strong presence in nine key areas in Luzon - Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Pangasinan, Metro Manila, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Palawan. In 2021, the real estate developer was recognized as one of BCI Asia's Top 10 Developers in the Philippines for the 10th year and Dot Property's Best Developer in North Luzon and Mindanao.

"Nurturing a diverse property portfolio in over 250 key areas nationwide is our way of reaching out to our fellow Filipinos and making them feel how it is to own their own homes. Filinvest truly builds the Filipino dream, and we are excited to once again do so in Naga," added Vince Abejo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Filinvest Land.

Suhoton Beach, Brgy. Vito Siruma

Siruma is not just all about the long shores facing San Miguel Bay. Some parts has a view of the Pacific too. I’m sharing a different side of Siruma which is at Barangay Vito, accessible by boat. ๐Ÿšฃ
๐Ÿ00:20 and 02:04-02:34 is the Sand bar at Brgy. Vito
๐Ÿ00:53 - 02:03 The Suhuton Beach for me is like the Dragonstone of Siruma. Well not so much, pero ung small tunnel has that feels haha pero push ko padin. ๐ŸคฃGOT fan lang po talaga until now. 02:48 is by foot at Suhoton, look for the small tunnel at 03:00
⛰03:20 is at Old Siruma Island or Matandang Siruma na inaapod

Try to Google the location so that you can imagine where these beaches are. How far is it? From Brgy. Pamintan, Brgy Vito is only around 20 minutes far. So it will really depend kung sain na resort po kamo hali.

Quality time with family and relatives last April 14 indeed. Thank you Doc Dennis R. for bringing us there! Dios Mabalos po!

LIMITLESS, A Musical Trilogy


Julie Anne San Jose transcends as she explores the Philippines for momentous musical trilogy ‘LIMITLESS’

Asia’s Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose takes her fans to an extraordinary musical journey in “LIMITLESS, A Musical Trilogy,” set to premiere on September 17 with tickets available beginning July 30.

The three-part musical journey is set to unveil the different facets of Julie as a singer, songwriter, dancer, actress, and multi-instrumentalist. But the biggest revelation comes to Julie as she searches for new inspiration in this journey of discovery that takes her to unexpected locations in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Tickets can be purchased by logging on to www.gmanetwork.com/synergy. Tickets are priced at P599 (General Admission); P1,499 (Synergy Pass GA); P1,199 (VIP); and P3,299 (Synergy Pass VIP). A special merchandise awaits ticket buyers who will purchase the VIP and Synergy Pass VIP.

Julie cannot wait for her fans to watch ‘LIMITLESS.’

“When I learned about the concept of ‘LIMITLESS,’ it really got me excited. So far, preparing for it is already a breathtaking experience. It makes me feel more inspired with living life. I think this will definitely be one for the books, and food for the soul,” Julie said.

The award-winning actress and singer made headlines recently after she was featured on a digital billboard at the iconic Times Square in New York City. The said billboard was for Spotify’s EQUAL campaign, which encourages users to listen to amazing women all around the world. The LIMITLESS star previously landed on the digital cover of Spotify's EQUAL playlist for the Philippines with her song “Free,” which took the No. 2 spot on iTunes Philippines Chart just a few hours after its official release.

A versatile artist, Julie is one of the hosts of GMA’s top-rating program ‘All-Out Sundays.’ She is also set to return with Rayver Cruz as Clash Masters in the all-original musical competition ‘The Clash.’ She bannered the GMA rom-com series ‘Heartful Cafรฉ’ opposite David Licauco and will soon be starring on an online video streaming platform’s musical series “Still” alongside Christian Bautista.
“We have always been amazed and proud of how multi-talented Julie is,” said GMA Regional TV and Synergy First Vice President and Head Oliver Amoroso. “We have been a witness to her powerful stage performance during GMA Synergy’s highly-successful ‘Kapuso Concerts’ series ‘The Sweetheart and the Balladeer’ as well as ‘3 Stars, 1 Heart.’ And she continues to surprise us over the years. ‘LIMITLESS’ is set to unleash Julie’s musical prowess that we have never seen before and we cannot wait for her fans here and abroad to be part of this new musical experience which begins on September 17,” he added.
“Julie is one of GMA’s finest homegrown talents who would incessantly share her music and penchant for acting,” shared First Vice President for Business Development Department III Darling De Jesus-Bodegon. “She has flourished to become one of the best performers in our country and is now beginning to be recognized not only here but also abroad. This is why we are excited to present to Julie’s fans this musical trilogy, ‘LIMITLESS’ because we know that Julie’s talent will take her fans to limitless heights when they join her in this musical journey.”
Directed by Paolo Valenciano, “LIMITLESS, A Musical Trilogy” is produced by GMA Synergy. The team is behind the Philippines’ first-ever virtual reality concert—“Alden’s Reality: The Virtual Reality Concert” —which was held last December. The concert’s TV airing, “Alden’s Reality: The Virtual Reality Concert TV Special,” is a finalist at the New York Festivals Awards.

Breathe. Heal. Rise. Catch Julie Anne San Jose in “LIMITLESS, A Musical Trilogy” this September 17.
Tickets are available beginning July 30 via www.gmanetwork.com/synergy.
