I’m an avid Instagrammer and so are you. But did you know about Instagramers Manila? It’s a community of Filipino Instagram’ers from all over the world that tell stories through photos every 9PM on Instagram.
If you’ve seen the hashtags #IGersManila #9pmhabit — that’s it. They’ve been meeting regularly during Instameets but it’s only now that the group is having its own Photo Exhibit sponsored by Globe. It’s a photo exhibit of Instagram snapshots taken during their photo walk sessions at the Bonifacio Global City, Luneta Park, Manila Bay, and Intramuros.
I’m a member of this group albeit not active on Instagram but I’m proud to support their activities. This November 30 until December 1, the first ever Philippine Instagram Photo Exhibit will be held at Glorietta 4, Ayala Center in Makati City. See you there!

A few days after the looloo app went live on the App Store, the iPhone 4S giveaway winner was chosen. Congratulations to Christine Sobraswerte! Looloo had to change her surname to prevent further stalking.
And just a week after the launch, the looloo app is now the number 2 Social app on the US App Store! How cool is that! In the PH App Store, it’s number 1!
I always knew the looloo app will be a success even if it’s a local app. The one million downloads may be a dream for now but nothing is impossible. And besides, I know your hard work will be rewarded. 🙂
It’s a new app developed by a Filipino tech start up that lets you explore the best places in Metro Manila. It’s probably the best app for the local foodies, spa junkies, and nightlife lovers out there. It’s like Twitter for the gimikeros who like to review, okray, or simply share their experiences at a restaurant, spa, or wherever.
The looloo app allows you to search for places nearby within an area in the city. It offers suggestions by your friends and other looloo users. Because the looloo team believes that people who know you best know what you like. I agree since I usually try a place if recommended by friends and family. Continue reading looloo is live!→
Sounds like a new superhero but it’s not. It’s the looloo I’ve been talking about for the past weeks. Remember that Kapitolyo Foodie Map Guide and SPAS 101 I shared? Those infographics were released by a local tech startup to introduce it’s very own mobile app.
looloo is going live on Tuesday, November 20. Apple has finally given the green light to launch the looloo on the App Store. No definite time has been given but expect it to be available in the evening here in the Philippines.
What is looloo?
It’s a friend-powered guidebook to Manila’s best places. At first, I thought it’s just for the foodies but looloo also covers salons, barbershops, hotel spas, nightlife spots, and other places of interest around the metro.
I’ve been beta-testing this app and it’s been fun to use. So you just tried a new resto? Review it. If you like it, recommend it to your friends. More often than not, people go to different establishments as recommended by family and friends. The people who know you best always know what you will like.
It’s launching tomorrow but you can still sign up HERE to win an iPhone 4S. 🙂
I said I won’t get an iPad Mini but I’m so ready to ditch my iPhone 4. I saw the iPhone 5 in Bangkok and it’s just a taller, slimmer, and thinner iPhone 4S. This iPad Mini, however, is just the perfect size for me. I wonder when it will arrive in the Philippines.
I’m expecting the 16GB entry model to be affordable at below P20,000 because it’s only $329. If I decide to get one though, I’ll buy directly from the online Apple Store Ph and have my name engraved on it. I’m not saying I WILL really buy one. I only want one. Again, it will always depend on the budget. Subject to the approval of my beloved husband.
I know it’s long pero I’m sure talagang tinitigan mo to. Haha! I love the colors and the graphics. This one is perfect for the spa lovers out there. You see, day spas have mushroomed all over the metro but only a few are popular. I’m only familiar with The Spa and The Island Spa in Jupiter Makati as I used to go there. Honestly, I don’t enjoy going to spas because instead of being relaxed, nabubugbog ako! LOL! That’s just me. I guess I really don’t know the science behind or the art of spa. Husband has been wanting to go. We were in Bangkok last week but we failed to experience an authentic Thai spa. We were too busy hanging out with the family at home. 🙂
This infographic might help me understand and yeah, discover what day spa in Manila to try. It’s the spa version of the foodie map I featured a few weeks back. All the information can be found on the yet-to-be-released looloo app. Speaking of which, have you signed-up?
If you’re a foodie or a spa lover, you need to have the app. It’s not available on the App Store yet but soon. 🙂
The Apple Event is happening anytime soon. And as usual, I will be up (not that I sleep early) to watch the news. The iPad mini is expected plus enhancements on iBooks. Some say that Apple will be highlighting the iPad and its educational benefits. Continue reading Apple Store down again→
