Reaction Vlog: Old Daniel Padilla in the KFC TVC

The KFC Philippines TV commercial gets more and more exciting as they introduce different actors portraying the iconic character of Colonel Sanders.

In the series of their TVC, we had Ronaldo Valdez, Leo Martinez, Albert Martinez, Pen Medina, and Christopher De Leon who played Colonel Sanders.



But in the recent TVC, it eventually turned as the most trending topic when the King of Hearts Daniel Padilla portrayed the role. Yes, Daniel, a 24-year old actor is the youngest PH's Colonel Sanders. The TVC made him look old with a gray hair, an eye glass wearing the all-white signature attire of Colonel Sanders.

And since the said KFC TVC went viral with interesting new look of Daniel Padilla, I made a new reaction vlog for this.

Here is my new vlog for DJ's trending new KFC TVC:



But did you know that it's not only DJ who portrayed the youngest Colonel Sanders? Well as I've discussed in my vlog, in China's KFC, there is a K-POP Luhan  who also portrayed the same role. On the other hand, its rival food chain McDonalds tapped the other K-POP artist Kris Wu to endorse their chicken product! 


In addition to this, in Nashville, there's the lead star of the TV series "Mad Men" who also played the role and a female American singer who also dressed like Colonel Sanders.

After Daniel Padilla, who do you think will be the next PH's Colonel Sanders?! Well, let's wait and see! 01/26/2019 (Bits of Rocks)

A Journey to Our New Home 4: The Installation of Our Dual Inverter Aircon

Before the final completion of our new home sweet home, it needs to install first our new dual inverter split type aircon to test that the electrical connections in our house is functioning correctly. Therefore even though the other parts of the house were not yet fully completed, the aircon was installed.

The question goes, why do we choose a dual inverter split type air conditioner rather than the traditional one. Well, it is mainly because, it consumes low energy! Yes, this LG dual inverter aircon has 70% less energy savings. Far lower electric consumption compared to the traditional window type aircon.

This aircon unit is 1.5 hp which can fully cool my whole master's bedroom!

When you buy this type of aircon unit, there is also a team who will install it in your home. They were technical people who will properly installed and test the unit in your home.   

There is a corresponding installation service charge you need to pay in addition to the total cost of the unit.

The installation team will also determine if the aircon is capable to cool the whole room. If not, they won't install the unit and they will ask you to upgrade your aircon's specs.
