#WalangIwanan Moments at the San Miguel Beer Party

"Kahit Kailan Walang Iwanan" This is the motto of San Miguel Beer which is also applicable in our daily lives. With true friends, this is true since they will never leave you through ups and downs, through thick or thin...

We're glad that yours truly Rocky and  my blogger friend Yam were invited to witness the unveiling of San Miguel Beer's #WalangIwanan theme featuring their two music videos called "Side A"  and "Side B" targeting the 90s and the millennial eras. 

During the night's party, we've mingled with SMB's celebrity ambassadors namely Ina Raymundo, Jet Pangat, and Kimpoy Feliciano together with the Misters of Filipinas male pageant winners Miguel Guia and Gwapulis Don Mcgyver Cosico.

I've already shared with you the details of this event in two of our blogs. So for today, here in my personal and lifestyle blog Bits of Rocks, let me share with you my moments with the SMB celebrity influencers depicting this Walang Iwanan theme.

Here are some of my photo moments during the event:

Sweetest Treats

Joining the Food Bloggers' Trip

Here are more of the photos of the cupcakes in varying flavors:   







What do we love more about their cupcakes is the fact that their cupcakes were made of all organic ingredients, no preservatives! So if you're in a healthy lifestyle, definitely this one's for you!

The term 'sweet' didn't only describes the cupcakes they were serving. Sweet also reflects to their service to the customers. Staffs were all approachable and accommodating.

And the ambiance of the place is very cool and relaxing. It looks like a kinder-garden nursery. Check out some of the spots around the place below:






And this coming Mothers' Day this Sunday, you may treat your mother here. We you spend a total of Php1,500, you mother is FREE! Yes, she may order everything for FREE! This is truly a sweetest treat to our beloved mother!

Meanwhile aside from the cupcakes, J Cuppacakes also serve snacks and pasta. They were also offering sandwiches and burgers. And yes I love their brewed coffee.

So if you want to treat yourself and your love ones with some sweet goodies, bring them here at the J Cuppacakes. 05/09/2019 (Bits of Rocks)

Food Bits: Tasting Gringo's Mexican Grill

It was my first time to try the special dishes here at the Gringo's Makati when our team decided to have a team building dinner. The food they served truly satisfied my cravings since I'm a seafood and Mexican food lover!

Yes, Gringo's offers a combination of Mexican dishes and grilled goodness.

So without further talks, let me share with you some of the food I've tried during our dinner. These are the dishes on our table:

Grilled Squid in a Mango Sauce

The Mexican Rice

Grilled Chicken

A Garlic Mushroom

Taco Con Carne

Gringo's is open 24 hours. Aside from grilled and Mexican food, they also offer party drinks and juices. Oh by the way, I love their house blend iced tea and lemonade. Their house blend iced tea is thick and taste like my favorite 'milk tea.' Meanwhile, the lemonade is made of fresh fruits - lemon and calamnasi combining a sweet sour taste. This is their drink I love the most!

Definitely, we will be coming back here for more! The Mexican rice, the grilled squid in a mango sauce, and the lemonade marked my senses! 

Have you also tried Gringo's? Which of their menus you love the most?! 03/09/2019 (Bits of Rocks)

The 10TH PIPC #PyroMusicalPH Experience in Clark, Pampanga

After more than one year, it's great to be back in Clark, Pampanga! This time, to experience and cover the greatest world musical fireworks competition participated by the different countries around the globe!

The event took place in SM City Clark. I've joined the Saturday,  March 2, 2019 event. But before wed discussed my last Saturday night's experience, let me tour you back in my first SM Clark experience way back in 2017. Yes, me and my #TeamRR  team been here to cover the VIOS Cup with the celebrity racers. My interviews and event coverage were on my official YouTube channel if you want to watch them all!



Now back to the present, here are my pyromusical story:

The Philippine International Pyromusical Competition (PIPC) is a tradition at the SM Mall of Asia that has brought endless enjoyment to millions of Filipinos each year. For the past 9 years, the pyrotechnics have always complied with the international standards for environmental safety, at par with countries like Canada, Australia, Hongkong and famous theme parks around the world.

In full support of the ongoing Manila Bay Rehabilitation Program of the DENR, SM Supermalls will move the 10th PIPC from SM Mall of Asia to SM City Clark in Angeles City, Pampanga starting on February 23 to March 30, 2019.

The Wide Field New Venue in SM City Clark


The Philippine International Pyromusical Competition’s annual program has 10 competing countries who take on a battle of breath taking fireworks performances amid symphony of sounds.

On March 2, Germany’s 9th PIPC champs “Steffes-Ollig Feuerwerke” and Portugal’s “Pirotecnia Minhota” will treat the crowd with their tradition and mastery of skills in the sky.

On March 9, the Pampanga skyline will witness France’s “Brezac Artifices” followed by a burst of vibrant colors by Finland’s Oy Pyroman.

Italy’s very own “Viviano S.R.L.” and last year’s champion, United Kingdom’s “Pyrotex Fireworx” will battle it out on March 16.

Here are some of my photos taken during the event:




Canada’s turn to paint the night sky bursting with colors on March 23 with their very own “Fireworks Spectaculars” and China’s Polaris Fireworks will surely stun the crowds.

To cap off the competition and close a decade of giving the best pyromusical exhibition in the Philippines, March 30 promises the most spectacular display of colors and surprises with Poland’s Surex Firma Rodzinna and the Philippines’ own Platinum Fireworks Inc. in a grand finale like no other.

The annual PIPC Photo Contest will also highlight entries from amateur and professional photographers wherein winners will receive special prizes from PIPC’s partners and sponsors.

Tickets to the most-awaited 10th PIPC are available at www.pyrophilippines.com or through SM Tickets, SM Cinemas, SM Mall of Asia ticket booths starting February 13, and at SM City Clark ticket booths starting February 14, ranging from the Patron with dinner at P1,800, VIP at P600, Gold at P350 and Silver at P120. Ticket prices will be different on the closing day of 10th PIPC. Ticket coupons will be available for purchase in Metrodeal starting February 13, 2019.

Reunited with the Racer Heartthrob James Deakin. He's One of the Judges
