Tara, Siargao Racecation?!

Lately, “in” ngayon ang mga foot races which takes runners to different places in the country and at times, out of it. Kasi naman, malaking bagay din ang diversity sa pagtakbo. One, you get to take-in a whole new sight while running (bawas boredom lalo na pag long run!) and then at times, you also get to enjoy a much needed respite, especially if the race venue is out of town – away from the bustling metropolis, ika nga!

If ganyan ang hanap mo sa mga runs mo ngayon, then RunRio has one such race for you! It’s the Siargao International Marathon!

Ang Siargao, sabi ni Wikipedia, “is a tear-drop shaped island in the Philippine Sea situated 800 kilometers southeast of Manila in the province of Surigao del Norte.”. Ako pag na-mention ang Siargao, ang naiisip ko white, sandy beaches and crystal clears waters na patok mag-surfing!

So yun na nga, kung ang trip mo lately ay to “commune with nature” while running and then mag-time out din for a few days after, then maybe the Siargao International Marathon might be the perfect “racecation” for you. 

O pano, tara racecation? Sayo race, akin yun vacation? Haha, cheers!

Premium lifestyle accessory brand Moshi finally in Manila!

I have been using Moshi iPhone cases ever since I came upon this brand and I can say that the brand brings a bang for the bucks! It’s sleek and simple but is truly reliable.

You can just imagine the joy I felt when I learned that Moshi is finally having their very own concept store here in Manila and will not just offer awesome mobile phone cases but a slew of premium lifestyle accessories and items as well!

Get to know more about it from the below press release.

Welcome to Manila, MOSHI!

PRESS RELEASE:

Premium lifestyle accessory brand Moshi officially lands in Manila

Enhancing the mobile lifestyle with its wide portfolio of premium accessories, global lifestyle brand Moshi officially launches its first concept store in Manila. Filipinos can now have full access to the complete range of Moshi products from phone accessories, bags and travel gears, to mobile electronics – all with design and function at the core of its unique product experience. 

Primarily known for its well-crafted iPhone, iPad, and Mac accessories, Moshi has now grown to being more than just a case maker, and makes a strong case as the next lifestyle brand to watch out for.

Since 2010, Moshi has been available in the top Apple retailers in the Philippines. But given the strong following and loyalty it has gained from the market, the brand sees it fitting to make its stylish homecoming in Manila official.

With its product category now ranging to audio, bags, active and travel categories, it showcases its evolution and versatility. Whether you want to go to work, squeeze in a workout, or just simply want products that would fit perfectly into your day to day activities—Moshi has the product for it. This seamless integration of your personal style with your gadgets is what the Moshi Life is all about—a premium life, whether at work or play.

“It has been a big and amazing year for Moshi Philippines and we are just getting started. We are opening our very first concept store outside of our headquarters and we thought Manila was the best place for it. Guided by our core of making beautifully-designed, smart and premium products, we aspire to become a household name here in the Philippines,” said Patricia Serrano, Business Development Manager of Moshi.

The press launch was held last April 18 at the Fundamental Coffee, Makati City. Gracing the event were select members of the press and social media influencers. Moshi is set to open its first concept store in SM North EDSA. For updates and more information, visit www.moshi.com, facebook.com/MoshiPhilippines.
