PLDT Awesome Hunt Launch at Republiq
I have been to many PLDT events before and I say they know how to PARTY! First we rocked at Magnet and did some Rockeoke. Then at Encore with the PLDT Watchpad contestants. Last saturday, we partied at Republiq! Thanks to everyone at Saatchi and PLDT for giving us unlimited supply of jello shots and Vodka!
I am notorious for going to clubs on my sneakers 😛 yeah that’s right… Heels can’t make me dance for the entire night! But, I don’t care, I love being comfortable 😀
That night, check out my bohemian attire >.<
Good thing, Republiq had a summer party going on too! So, I belong… with my oversized silk jeans 😛 I came from an acting workshop before this and didn’t have the time to change 😛 I wasn’t wearing makeup too so I took out my emergency makeup kit – just eyebrow powder and brush that I also used as my eyeliner. I wasn’t wearing a Red lipstick but a RED cherry beeswax lip balm – but it works!
All the stars of the Awesome Hunt was there including blogger friends Jane Chua who I’m going to be with in Boracay tomorrow woot! and Carlos Celdran and Mojo Javier. Jayvee was not there but I know he’s joining the hunt!
I was supposed to join the hut too but I would be going home to my hometown to have an audition. Clue – audition is on April 6! My hometown… I’m not saying 😛 you can browse through my blog if you want to know (just giving you a hard time haha!)
By the way vote for my friends here.
Republiq was packed – as always. Spotted China somewhere in the photo 😉

PLDT my DSL extends nationwide reach and celebrates with an awesome adventure!
Itâ€™s going to take no less than eight cities, 16 personalities, and one huge competition for PLDT myDSL to share its excitement about getting bigger and better. And with over 200,000 reasons to celebrate, PLDT myDSL partners with the Department of Tourism to ensure that it comes up with an exciting event you wonâ€™t soon forget.
With the groundwork set, all thatâ€™s left is to finally let the public in on whatâ€™s ahead. PLDT myDSL is proud to present the Awesome Hunt, a competition that pits teams of famous personalities against one another in their quest to come up with the most awesome online travel features that will ignite anyoneâ€™s passion for adventure. The locations for each teamâ€™s journey is set in eight chosen cities where some of 200,000 additional myDSL lines have been installed to get more households hooked on broadband Internet.
Just like any treasure hunt, clues will lead teams through four pre-determined venues in each city. And whether they are led to a restaurant, a novelty shop, an ukay-ukay, a landmark, or someoneâ€™s home, they are asked to complete specific tasks which they are required to creatively document and post on the PLDT myDSL Watchpad site before moving on to the next challenge. Expect to see each team pull out some major gimmicks to give you the best coverage of each cityâ€™s hidden gems.
The Awesome Hunt brings together a great cross-section of familiar faces with different passions. Fellow actors, Marco Alcaraz of My Lover, My Wife and Machete star Bela Padilla, will be tackling the historic city of Butuan while Myx VJ Ton Vergel de Dios and I Heart You, Pare! mainstay Ryza Cenon learn about the university town of Dumaguete. One of the Philippinesâ€™s most famous tech bloggers Jayvee Fernandez and Temptation of Wife actor Luis Alandy take on the challenges of covering Las Pinas, and mother-and-son showbiz personalities IC Mendoza and Dolly Anne Carvajal cover Laguna to get to the bottom of what makes it so special. Rediscover Quezon City with blogger and famed Manila tour guide Carlos Celdran and columnist/chef China Cojuangco, and check out Marikina through the eyes of some of the hottest new TV personalities, Starstruck alumnus Steven Silva and Eat Bulaga! host Daiana Menezes. Get familiar with Rizal as DJ Mojo Jojo of The Good Times fame and Between Bites blogger Jane Chua do the same, and race through Cavite with actor and heartthrob Mark Herras and champion car drifter Alex Perez. At stake? P50,000 per member of the winning team, a one-year free PLDT myDSL subscription, a free trip to a popular summer getaway, and a brand new laptop and digital camera.
The competition takes place on April 7 and everyone is invited to be a part of it. How? All you have to do is sign up for Watchpad, which is free with your PLDT myDSL subscription. Then visit to follow each teamâ€™s progress and to vote for the team with the best online travelogue from April 8 to 24. The winning travelogue is decided by an esteemed panel of judges, and by popular votes from Watchpad users at the end of the voting period.
And, being the Awesome Hunt means there is even more at stake for PLDT myDSL subscribers. myDSL is giving away a laptop, a camera, and P50,000 in cash to the lucky voter who picks the winning team. So start flexing those judging muscles now and make sure to be counted as PLDT myDSL begins its celebrations in style.
