Mister Donut New Offerings for 2013: Doubles The fun with our Impromptu Donut Party

Happiness is what we all wish for our families, friends and even acquaintances. Happiness is being contented with what we have, may it be in the form of material things or not. Happiness is not about how many gadgets you have or how many thousands of Facebook friends we have right now. For me it is about how many people have smiled because of the deeds we have done.Happiness is sharing the gift of love, kindness and gratefulness,Happiness is seeing the positivity despite adversaries that may happen our way.

We are what and how we define what makes us really happy. Happiness is not something we can just buy in the nearest store. It’s not just having so much money to spend, but seeing beyond those things that money can buy. And what can it possibly be? For me, those things are the things that money can’t buy like the smiles you see on your loved-one’s faces. It’s all about the laughs and stories that you all shared with.

And that’s what I saw in my loved-one’s faces when I went home with a lot of Mister Donut goodies. This is what I’ve been anticipating all these time. Seeing their “sweet” smiles beaming is enough to know that the reason why they’re all smiles is because I have brought home some – not just “some”  but rather “a lot” Mister Donut’s Valentine Goodies!

Yeah I know Valentine’s Day is way too early to celebrate but last week is special occasion to celebrate with. My one only brother King visited our home with his girlfriend, Jhen and my kids love them both. You can only imagine their happiness when they knew that their Tito King (my brother’s name is KING) will be staying with us for a couple of days. I only have one brother for a sibling and he is a special person to me since aside from my paternal parents, he is the only nearest kin (aside from my own family). I’ve grown to a very small family and that makes me have more room to be especially drawn closer to him. Can you imagine not being close to your one and only sibling? That will be so weird,right? We may not that super close but I know I am his only “ate’ he can always seek help with, may it not be just about financial concerns but also with how will lead his life in the future. I may not be a “role” model ate to him but all I can say is that I’m his Ate who will stay with him all through out the good and tough times.Oh forgive me if  I’m becoming of a ‘melodramatic here. It’s just that, it’s been months since I last saw my brother. He has become busy with work the past few months, making my kids miss him more.

Last week I have a very important event to attend to and it’s in perfect timing that I can leave my kids at home since their Tito King and girlfriend, will be there to look after them. Felt so relieved knowing how well adjusted my kids are when their Tito is around. For my kids it means goofing and playing around with their beloved Tito.

So knowing how my younger brother will also look forward for me to be home (by the way. our age gap is 11 years-so imagine young he is still is –at heart!)-I know I have to bring some something to a family who’s anticipating for my return back home.

I was thinking what to bring home to my kids, younger brother and his girlfriend? Since I have to take into consideration that my kids love “sweet” treats- I’m thinking of buying a cake. But hmmm…for my kids it may mean there’s a birthday celebration—ah no, I don’t want send a wrong message there. I wanna take home something that will anticipate this coming “love” month. January has come by so fast- and everyone’s been prepping early for “Valentine’s Day.

I wanna see 3 things on their faces when they open the door-Bonding, Excitement and a very noble thought and that is “SHARING “ what I have as “pasalubong”.

 Our table filled with Mister Donut Goodies!
We have it, You name it-from Do-Chi, Bavarian Doubles and even Valentine Gift Sets
Instant Pre-Valentine Donut Party!

 Since I’m on a budget lately, the idea of bringing a cake home was dismissed. So why not bring them some Mister Donut Goodies. Mister Donut to my surprise which, they are ready for the much anticipated “V-day”. Upon visiting their store, I’ve seen 3 things I can bring home for my kids and the “couple” (my brother and his girlfriend”).

First thing is their newest product innovation “BAVARIAN DOUBLES. BAVARIAN DOUBLES are Mister Donut’s Donut “Filled-Twice”. Since Mister Donut is best known for their Bavarian-filled donuts,they innovatively created Bavarian Doubles which has two fillings inside. The Bavarian Doubles currently has 3 new variants: “CLASSIC BAVARIAN+CHOCO FUDGE, COFFEE BAVARIAN+CARAMEL BAVARIAN and CHOCO BAVARIAN+CARAMEL BAVARIAN. I’ve tried all 3 flavors and I must say I became a fan of bavarian-filled donuts.

The Mister Donut Bavarian Doubles

I used to shun away Bavarian-filled donuts as I think they’re too boring for my palate.But now they’re doubled with another flavor-it has made me think twice too! It will now “Double the Flavor and the Fun. Best for people who both love Bavarian and other Mister Donut flavors. No more choosing between bavarian and other flavors. You can now have both flavors at the price of one (Php13 each and Php 130 a box [10pcs] ) Lj and Zeus will surely my sweet treat as kids really love donuts!

With V-Day coming up real soon, I thought of buying Mister Donut’s Valentine Gift set. I know what you’re thinking.Yeah too early for me to give it as a gift. But there’s no stopping me in giving Mister Donut’s Valentine’s Day Gift set to my brother and his girlfriend. Better early than never-It’s a good idea to give it to them early as there might be no chance for us to see each other on Valentine’s Day-as they may be spending a date somewhere on that day,lol!

The Mister Donut Valentine's Day Gift Set Php165

The Mister Donut Valentine’s Day Gift set comes in 2 sets-one in 1 Heart-shaped tin can containing 6pcs Belgian Bites (another Mister Donut favorite),Heart-shaped Balloon and a stuffed-toy-all for Php 165 while you can also opt to buy it without the stuffed-toy for Php135 only. I know my brother’s girlfriend will be more thrilled to have it since she loves stuffed-toys.

 Guy to Girl: "Please Can I have some Belgian Bites too?"
 Girl to Guy: "Please, I'm warning you these Belgian Bites are all mine! Mine!"

 Well I have new buddy whenever I wanna stay up and alert!
The Mister Donut Coffee that comes in 2 variants: The Strong Coffee and the Creamy Coffee.
It's a perfect pair with the Mister Donut Belgian Bites!

The Mister Donut Belgian Bites is a must-try.
I even got a favorite: Belgian Bites in Cookies n' Cream!
and Oh by the way the heart-shaped tin cans that comes with the Belgian Bites are re-usable.
Good for keeping your little stuffs!

And last but not the least is buying “DO-CHI”. So easy to conclude that it might be “Donut+Buchi”. True enough it is a mashed up of Donuts and Buchi wit a variety of fillings. It will be a good alternatively for those who want to try a different “sweet” treat this upcoming Chinese New Year. It has 3 delicious and sweet flavor: Strawberry, Mango and Chocolate (sold at Php8 each and Php24 for a box of 3). I thought of buying Do-Chi since hubby is a fan of buchi and I wonder what will he say after tasting it ( jokingly I was making a mental picture of what will he say after having a bite of it-“buchi ba to’ or donut/ donut ba to’ o buchi” hahaha!).

My kids happily munching their Mister Donut Bavarian Doubles!
When asked what's their favorite Flavor?
You'll hear the word "ALL" in unison lol!
After all "kids" don't lie!

 Well I didn’t not get all of these Mister Donut Goodies if I have not tasted them. I am practically the one who knows which ones will suit my family’s sweet tooth.We all have the same taste-we don’t like anything too sweet so Mister Donut suits our taste without stashing our pockets too deep.

This is how dinner table looked liked! All yummy goodies from Mister Donuts. I have bought enough for my family to share with. I even have enough to spare/give to our very kind landlady. With a thankful smile on her face is enough to make me smile as well. The feeling that you have put up a smile with everyone around is just one leap to that feeling we all call Happiness.

 Aren't they a happy bunch of Mister Donut Bavarian Doubles?
 By the way these two boys loves the two Mister Donut Ambassadors

Ryzza Mae Dizon and Bitoy

I just felt I had to start the year (2013) right by being content with what I have, to be able to share a part of me to other people. I realized it’s just not always about “Me” but also about “Others”. And I think spending time with the ones I love is where I should start first.I should be spending time with them, bond with my kids, and make lasting relationships with people I truly care about.

Mister Donut has been around the donut industry for almost 57 years, so for a brand to be still up about is something we all have to take note. We are all part of the economic percentage known as consumers, and knowing about a particular is a must. With a brand that has established itself as a known Donut brand for every Filipino household, it takes pride in having its vision in imparting the values of Sharing, bonding and excitement.

So please for parents who are always busy just like me, don't forget to spend some time with your family most especially with the kids,kids at these ages tend to cherish these kinds life-events. Those do not taint in their minds.It lingers longer than most parents like us thought.

Happy to have shared these memories through my blog!

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters- A Rollicking Action-Adventure Movie

The story picks up 15 years after siblings Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) hatched their escape from a child-snatching witch, who changed their lives forever . . . and gave them a taste for blood. Now they have come of age as fierce, formidably skilled bounty hunters 100% dedicated to tracking and terminating witches in every dark forest -- hell-bent on retribution.  But as the notorious Blood Moon approaches and a familiar wooded town faces a nightmare for its innocent children, Hansel & Gretel encounter an evil beyond any witch they’ve ever hunted – an evil that could hold the secret to their frightening past.  

The Mayor of Augsburg, Germany recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of an evil sorceress Muriel (Famke Janssen) who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches' gathering during the upcoming 'Blood Moon' night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer (Peter Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.
Children around the world have long had their bones chilled by the classic fairy tale of Hansel & Gretel, the brother and sister lost in the woods, then ensnared by an icy-hearted witch who cooks and eats children.  At the story’s end, the duo foil the witch’s cannibalistic clutches . . . but what happened to them next?  That’s what writer/director Tommy Wirkola’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters dares to imagine, tackling the question in all its scary, funny and suspenseful potential.  Joining their story as the adult siblings emerge as the most lethal witch hunters ever to stalk the woods, the film turns an ancient fable into a no-holds-barred epic of modern action and adventure. 

Immediately, Wirkola saw the makings of a visually ferocious, humor-laced and action-packed experience for 21st Century audiences raised on the tale. As he began writing, he determined he would stay true to the spirit of the original German folk legend -- first published back in 1812 by the famed unearthly tale-collectors, The Brothers Grimm -- but put no limits on his imagination from there. 
“I wanted the vibe of the original fairy tale but I also wanted to spice it with all the things I love most in movies – comedy, horror and graphic action.” he summarizes.  “A gruesome aura was always there in the original tale, but I brought it to the forefront, while injecting humor.  And the story is still about this really strong bond between brother and sister – the way Hansel & Gretel are driven to stick together, no matter what it takes, as they confront evil.” 

To take Hansel & Gretel out of the annals of legend and into visceral, contemporary action, Tommy Wirkola knew he would need to find two strong personalities who could morph these characters from legend to real life.  The search for a contemporary ideal of how Hansel & Gretel might have turned out – after being raised on dreams of vengeance against the foul wickedness of witches – led to the pairing of Jeremy Renner, Oscar®-nominated for his searing action role as an Iraq War bomb expert in The Hurt Locker and rising British actress Gemma Arterton, whose allure came to the fore when she joined the iconic circle of Bond Girls in Quantum of Solace

He also found himself wrapped up in what becomes Hansel’s guiding philosophy.  “He and Gretel have gone through an amazing tragedy,” Renner observes.  “They don’t have parents, witches have tried to eat them and what Hansel has taken away is that you’ve got to take your personal anger and pain and do something good with it.” 

That philosophy has left Hansel with a dry wit and a devastating way with the weapons needed to go after hard-to-kill witches.  For Renner, that meant preparing for some of the most intensive action he’s done yet, and he especially enjoyed Wirkola’s take on how hard-fought and harrowing each of Hansel & Gretel’s battle is against such magically empowered enemies.

“There’s a lot of really arduous action in the film,” Renner notes.  “One of the big difference in this movie is that while usually heroes win all their battles, Hansel & Gretel get their butts kicked numerous times.   So in a way we had to face getting beat up every day!  But we also had a great time.   Tommy brought an incredible tone to the whole thing, a mix of serious and funny that I think gives the film the quality of a real adventure.” 

Arterton, too, was drawn to the twists of the story.  “I love the original fairy tale and this starts there, then makes a real departure,” she says.  “The film joins up with Hansel & Gretel in the midst of their fame as witch hunters.  But it’s also a time when they’re starting to wonder who they are and why these terrible things happened to them – which leads them into a very tense situation.” 
Amid all the snowballing tension, Arterton loved the brother-sister dynamic that always stays at the heart of the action, no matter how extreme things get.  “The sibling relationship is such a great one to explore,” ayes Arterton.  “Hansel & Gretel have this unstoppable bond but they’re also so different from each other.  She’s the brains of the operation.  He’s the brawn.  He’s the joker and the show-off.  She’s more the watcher, the researcher, the one who tries to really understand witchcraft.  They have to each play to their strengths.”
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, written and directed by Tommy Wirkola, is a Paramount Pictures and Metro Goldwyn Mayer presentation by Gary Sanchez production starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen and Peter Stormare, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.  The film is distributed by United International Pictures thru Solar Entertainment Corporation.  Showing on January 23 at your favorite theaters and cinemas..

Jack Reacher: Tom Cruise Stars In different kind of “Hero” Movie

What’s your idea of a Hero? When I was invited to the advance premier of the movie “Jack Reacher” and read what’s the movie’s gonna be all about, I asked myself what basically is a hero?

For me a Hero should possess courage, sense of dignity and a man of his word. I know a lot of you will agree that some may feel the same way.

If you’re gonna ask if the movie is another “hero” kind of movie, I would say yes but with a different approach.

Jack Reacher is a comeback from  Hollywood’s favorite, Tom Cruise. Incidentally Tom Cruise also co-produced this movie.

Here’s a little info about the movie “JACK REACHER”.

On a mundane morning in an average town, five people are randomly shot dead while going about their everyday lives. All of the evidence points to one man: A sharp-shooting assassin who is also an ex-military, a trained sniper. He is swiftly apprehended and dragged into custody. Despite a marathon interrogation, the prisoner offers up nothing except a cryptic demand he scribbles on a notepad in lieu of a confession: GET JACK REACHER.

By the time Reacher arrives, the accused killer lies in coma, thanks to a brutal beating during transfer, and his defense attorney (played by ROSAMUND PIKE) is loaded with questions for Reacher: What is her clients history with Reacher, and why would he request help from a man convinced of his guilt? Despite some trepidation, she honors her client’s request and hires Reacher to investigate.This is where the pursuit for truth starts. This movie is based on ONE SHOT, the 9th in the series of Reacher novels.

I know for those who read the book will ask why start in the middle of the series?

Producer Granger says,” One Shot is perhaps the most cinematic of all the books. Within the novel are presented several elements that we thought were important in a first movie. First I think it’s got one of the very best introductions for Reacher- it’s a great way to bring him into the plot that’s already in motion. But secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, there’s dilemma for him. He comes into the story believing one thing, and then has to realize that the facts are perhaps pointing in a different direction.

This movie is so far the most-promising one for a come-backing actor-cum producer like TOM CRUISE. As I watch the movie I kept focusing and concentrating on the plot of the movie, but just like I know you'll in suspense as how the movie turns out.

JACK REACHER is will be shown in theaters near you starting January 9,2013. JACK REACHER starsTom Cruise as Jack Reacher, ROSAMUND PIKE (Helen Rodin as the District Attorney's daughter in charged as the counsel-in-charge for the accused JAMES BARR (played by Joseph Sikora), David Oyelowo (Detective Emerson).

The movie is produced by Tom Cruise, Paula Wagner, Gary Levinsohn and Dana Goldberg. It is released by Solar Enetertaintment and United International Pictures.

SM City North Edsa's End of Season Sale on January 4-13,2013

I know you still have those hang-over because of the holidays. And just like me, i felt the holidays before the year 2012 is not enough. I have not met "old " friends that I was supposed to meet over the holidays and most especially I haven't gone out to "shop".

Great thing is, I was informed by a friend that SM City North Edsa will be having their #EndofSeasonSale starting January 4-13, 2013.

There will be items that will be on sale as much as 70% off. Well if that is the case I will be visiting SM City North Edsa the soonest so that I will have more chances on getting a "grab" on fab items!
