Knowing Zoomanity more

Zoomanity Group theme parks has been in the business of fun and excitement for more than a decade now. Their astonishing and wonderful development of a simple theme park to a must-see destination in the country has been gaining popularity not only in our neighboring countries but also in the western part of the world. That's why when I was invited to check out how this amazing group of Yupangco Company chooses the brands that suit their needs - for their pets, tenants and locations, I immediately said yes. It's very unusual for a company to invite some friends to see how they do "the business", right?


Held at White Space in Makati City, more than a dozen of companies showcased their products led by Patirot Commando, a trusted brand on fire protection. From the fire protection gadgets to sanitizers - things that normal theme parks have are here for showcase and open for some business transactions.

Some of Zoomanity theme parks souvenir items were also made available on this one-day exhibit for guests to have a glimpse of how wonderful and exciting and colorful these attractions are now.

With hundreds of milk tea stores sprouting from one corner to another here in  the metro, who wouldn't go gaga over these delights? With its sweet and mild appeal to our palette, plus its good effect on our health, milk tea is indeed the "drink" of the year! But how do you really choose your milk tea? How sure are you that it's the best kind?

Last weekend, I was invited to witness the launch of the newest milk tea brand in town, A-Gantea. Located at the ground level of Greenbelt 2 in Makati City, A-Gantea takes pride of their selected tea leaves, which are from Taiwan’s Ali Mountain.

The brand also uses fresh fruit in their fruit teas and their special milk teas use premium imported milk with white chewy tapioca pearls and black pearls that are softer and sweeter that provides a different experience in the mouth.
