It was a tiring 2-day Garage Sale in JL's place in Makati, but sobrang fulfilling experience--sabi nga namin ni Sarah, parang tumambay lang tayo and then kumita pa! ;p Super fun and worth it, thank you to everyone who bought from us, and to JL and Domz for having us and for being such gracious hosts!
Right after the bazaar egress, Sarah and I decided to attend ZAP's bloggers event in Greenhills since near Sarah's place lang naman, and also because we want to watch a movie nadin! :) Our first stop / meet-up point: Wine Depot.
Located in Missouri St., Wine Depot offered assorted wine to the 15 lifestyle and food bloggers invited for the Zap Crawl. Didn't try them muna, although a red wine lover. Medyo pagod talaga from selling, so maybe will visit uli soon (with my Zap Tag na, of course! ;))
Goodie bags for all the Crawlers containing treats from Zap partner establishments like Sugarhouse and Beyond the Box:
They also handed our pre-loaded, limited-edition Golden Zap Tags that I can stick to my phone or conveniently place in my wallet! ZAP establishments give customers 5% to 20% cash back points on each visit. Points are AS GOOD AS CASH (1 point = 1 peso!). With just TAPPING, I can earn ZAP Cash Back points that I can use in any partner merchant.
From Wine Depot, we headed to our dinner place, also a ZAP Establishment: the Torch Resto. We rode the unmarked "cab" UBER--connecting to its convenient app na mattrace and identify mo pa your driver. Although a bit expensive than regular taxi fares, Uber is the perfect service we need pag mag cab shortage nanaman, or aattend ka ng event (in formal wear!) and want sana na medyo class your car when you go down the hotel lobby--mga ganung tipong instances. ;p
Our Uber Driver, Kuya Sonny:
Super excited for this destination at suuuuper gutom na kami ni Sarah coming from the garage sale! The Crawlers proceeded to Torch Restaurant located in Connecticut St. for a dinner of Philly Cheese Steak Pizza (the best!), Torch Signature Roll, Salpicao Medallion, and Burger Mac n Cheese. Torch offers 5% Cashback to Zap holders! :)
Super hungry, halos maubos namin ni Sarah isang pizza ng kaming 2 lang HAHA. MONSTER! Also had a great time with the other bloggers, like Cody--a fellow St. Scho Manila graduate (thus the many common friends!), and laughtrip with Ruth na parating kwela / napapatawa ako! Good food and good times! ;)
Another Uber ride going to our last activity--the cinemas! BMW naman for this, ang bongga!
Ruth, Cody, and Sarah:
Minsan depende sa choice of car ang presho--check out their site here.
I also feel na this is safer since hawak mo ang details and info of the driver even before he picks you up!
Saw this sign in Greenhills while Sarah had a Happy Lemon drink--which is also a Zap establishment giving 5% cashback.
The night ended with a popcorn and the screening of 300: Rise of an Empire at the Dolby Atmos theater. For Greenhills Cinema, they gave 10% cashback!
Nag enjoy ako, perfect reward after work! About the movie, sobrang panay dugo, and also loaded ng mga sentimental / inspirational speeches before the war (my fave, hehe)! ;p Perfect day-ender:
Super swerte, the bloggers were among the first pala to experience ZAP's brand new and improved platform! ZAP is now easier to use... just sign up for FREE at www.zap.com.ph/register. After which, you are now eligible to collect and redeem cashback points at restaurants, retail establishments, spas, salons, cinemas, etcetera. ZAP was launched last year, and its aim is to provide the LARGEST network of rewards. I am definitely going back to the partner establishments to earn more points!
