Watch: Unboxing and Review of the Seattle's Best Journal 2019

It's time to unbox and review again another planner from a popular coffee shop. This time, it's the Seattle's Best Coffee (SBC) Journal 2019!

Yes, this is my second time to collect the planner or journal of Seattle's Best. I've started to own one last year. Since then, the SBC journal eventually turn to be my new collection in addition to Starbucks and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.



What I like most about this SBC Journal is that, it has the best cover. Their cover is usually made of leather just like this year's.

And yes, the Seattle's Best Journal is the biggest of the three coffee shop planners. As I've said, "para siyang pizza," referring to its box.

Well, without further talk, here is my unboxing and review vlog of the Seattle's Best Journal. Let's all watch this:



Meanwhile, let take another glance to the SBC journal I've chose for this year, the one in brown leather cover:



  The Seattle's Best 2019 Journal with a hashtag them of #SeizeThisYear comes in four color designs - brown, black, blue, and red. The brown one which I've chose is the best seller.

Stay tune folks 'cause I have two more planner unboxing vlogs to share with you!  And yes, I have one unboxing vlog comparing the planners of the three coffee shops. 12/21/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

Our new home... our dream home sweet home will be our 2019's Opening Salvo!

Welcome to another chapter of my very own "A Journey to Our New Home"  blog series featuring our brand new house. This time, let me feature the Finishing Phase of our home.

Currently, the facade looks like this:



Now, let's get inside! Let's start with our ground floor, the area of the living and dinning room:




On the second floor will be the bedroom of my brother and my mother. Let me show you the doors of these two rooms:





The second floor's special feature is the bar. And it is currently under construction:



Will share with you  its final look and feel after the construction. Now, let's go upstairs.

The stairs and rails were also on their finishing phase:

Meeting the Queens of the Universe

Our country, the Philippines proves that it is the land of the beauty queens! Yes, in the history of the beauty pageants, we already got four Pinays who win the prestige Miss Universe title.

Starting from Ms. Gloria Diaz in 1969, followed by Ms. Margie Moran  in 1973, then Ms. Pia Wurtzbach in 2015, and the most recent, Ms. Catriona Gray this 2018 - the Filipino people are lucky enough to have these four beautiful ladies bringing the pride and victory to our country.

But of all the Filipino people, I am the most lucky of them! Yes, because I got the privilege to meet, take a picture, and interview three of these beauty queens. Well, check this out below:


Except for Ms. Margie Moran, I already met Ms. Gloria Diaz, Ms. Pia Wurtzbach, and Ms. Catriona Gray! Let's take a look on my first photos with these three beauty queens:

With Ms. Gloria Diaz, Miss Universe 1969:




With Ms. Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 2015:  




With Ms. Catriona Gray, Miss Universe 2018:  




Now the challenge is with Ms. Margie Moran! Meeting her definitely completes my four moments with the four beauty queens of the universe! My friend said: "Kumpletuhin mo na (with Margie Moran) parang pagkumpleto lang ng mga planners!" Hahaha!
 
But still, I'm so thankful to have them in different occasions. You may want to watch my interviews with them, just feel free to subscribe and visit my YouTube channel via youtube.com/RunnerRocky and be inspired with my vlog interviews! 12/19/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

Meet Catriona Gray's Boyfriend, Clint Bondad!

Before I finally met our Miss Universe 2018 winner Ms. Catriona Gray last November, it was her boyfriend Clint Bondad  I've met first. Yes, it was in February 2016 when I had my first photo and video interview with Clint during the run of the Century Tuna Superbods Nation 2016.

Just like Catriona, Clint is also a model and a pageant winner. He joined the 2016 edition of the Century Tuna Superbods called the Superbods Nation where he landed as the 1st Runner Up.

Since Clint is also a hot trending topic now because of the Miss Universe victory of his girlfriend Cat, let me also introduce him here in my blog. Here are my very first photos with Clint Bondad way back 2016 during the height of their competition:   




Clint is also a cool guy. He even greeted me on my birthday via VG and posted a wacky shot with me. Sharing two more of our wacky selfies:

Congratulations Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray!

For the 4TH time around, the Philippines bagged the Miss Universe title! After Ms. Gloria Diaz (1969), Ms. Margie Moran (1973), and Ms.Pia Wurtzbach (2015), here comes Ms. Catriona Gray!

Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray, a 24-year old Filipino-Australian was crown as the Miss Universe 2018 in the grand coronation night held at Bangkok, Thailand, December 17, 2018.  

I've already posted the winning stories and article of Catriona in my other blog, the TV Series Craze. For now, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate her by sharing my photo with her. Here it goes:


Yes, that was my first photo with Catriona on the last week of November 2018 before her flight in Bangkok, Thailand to compete for the said prestige pageant. I've sent my good luck to her after that photo. And I've said, she will be coming home owning the Miss Universe crown. And that turns into a reality today!

Catriona's success in this Miss Universe pageant is another inspiring story. Two years ago, she failed to win the Miss World crown. But she didn't lose hope. She joined in the other competition, in this Miss Universe pageant reinventing herself until she finally got the victory!

Catriona has a similar story with our 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach who loose three times in Miss Universe pageant but keep on trying and trying until she finally crowned as the queen of the universe!

Once more, congratulations Ms. Catriona Gray! You make us proud, the Philippines, and the whole world...the universe rather! 12/17/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

Watch: Unboxing and Review of the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CBTL) 2019 Giving Journal

It's time to unbox another 2019 coffee shop planner! This time, let's explore the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Giving Journal!

It was 2015 when I started to collect the stamps for my very first CBTL planner called as the Giving Journal. This is called a "Giving Journal" because whenever you got a planner, you already donated part of the beverage amount you have purchased to the chosen charity.

This 2019, the CBTL Giving Journal comes in four different designs. I've chose the brown cork-board type with the logo of the Coffee Bean as shown below:

Now let's all watch my unboxing and review video:



 Meanwhile, here are the other designs you may choose:
