5 Things I learned at the Smart Bro Quiz Night!

Okay so last Thursday night, hubby and I headed on over to Skinny Mike's at Bonifacio Global City for the Smart Bro Quiz Night. It was the first Smart event I had ever attended, albeit it wasn't really an event in the strictest sense. There wasn't anything being launched and we didn't really need to blog about it but it was a pretty unusual evening so I'll tell you about it anyway, lol.

Smart Bro Quiz Night
Call time was 7pm but we got to Skinny Mike's at around 8pm because of the horrendous traffic. We were teamed up with the jocks in more ways than one -- DJs Gino, Chico, and Delamar (who arrived much later) and athletes Phil and James Younghusband! The non-jocks were hubby, myself, and Colleen. I'm ganking this photo off Phil's Instagram account. Our team name was TeamPura (Tempura) because we were all hungry and we couldn't really think of one. Bongga I made a guest appearance on Phil, Gino, and Chico's IGs lol.

Amidst munching on the endless platters of food that kept arriving at our table, small talk, and answering the weirdest questions ever, I'm happy to say I learned a few things:

  1. DJs are immortal. They HAVE to go to work even if there's a supertyphoon wreaking havoc in the city. During typhoon Glenda, DJs Chico, Delamar, and Gino reported to work.
  2. There are only 6 days in a year when the Younghusbands don't have to practice. I didn't ask which days, but I'm guessing Christmas, New Year, Good Friday... no idea what the other 3 are.
  3. The Twitter bird's name is Larry. Larry Bird. O_o
  4. Nokia started out as a toilet paper manufacturer.
  5. Clash of Clans is the #1 top-grossing app.
These are just the things I remember off the top of my head.

Now why didn't we get any questions in the music and sports categories? We didn't win but it was pretty fun.

Thank you Smart for adopting me for the night! :)

Marie France i.Lipo for a sexier you! Win a session worth at least P10k!

I went to check out Marie France's latest slimming treatment a few weeks back. My tummy is the bane of my existence. I swear it's so hard to trim even an inch off it.

Marie France i.Lipo
We had healthy snacks comprised mostly of fresh pressed juices, yogurt, and fruits. We don't want to waste the treatment, do we? Lol!

Got to catch up with my lovely friends NJ, Mrs. Martinez, and Bea!

Without further ado I was ushered into the treatment room. Marie France Philippines never fails to amaze me with the level of personalization they go into every event. They go out of their way to make you feel like a queen -- no exaggeration!

P488 Dads World Buffet Megamall Promo!

Last December, I had my first ever taste of Dads World Buffet. No, it wasn't my first time at Dads SM Megamall. At the time, Dads SM Megamall had just been converted to Dads World Buffet, featuring well over a hundred dishes from different countries around the world. Anyhow before we make our round, I bring good news:
  1. Dads World Buffet SM Megamall (only Megamall) will be having a promo till the end of July -- pay only P488 to enjoy the incredible selection of dishes from Mon-Fri lunch.
  2. All Dads branches (Glorietta, EDSA, Manila) have been converted to Dads World Buffet except West Avenue, but it will be by August 1, 2014.

Okay, now that the announcements are done with, guess where I had lunch today with some of my blogger friends? Dads World Buffet in SM Megamall, of course! It was very timely because I wanted to check out the end of season sales at the Mega Fashion Hall.

Dads World Buffet Megamall
This time, I will focus on showing you buffet offerings which I didn't post photos of in my previous Dads World Buffet post, like the US Roast Beef and New Zealand Leg of Lamb. I only had roast beef because I don't eat lamb. :)

Dads World Buffet Megamall
There's Oyster Rockefeller! Big oysters baked with cheese and cream sauce, yum! They keep replenishing the pans too.
