Christmas is indeed the most wonderful time of the year, don’t you think? It’s the time families get together, the time to celebrate the friendships we have made over the years and the time of giving thanks to all our loved ones.

This year, Nuffnang Philippines put up a very intimate Country Manager’s Dinner where our beloved talents enjoyed one another’s company. This small gathering of fun-loving talents and hardworking Nuffies was held at Café Naya at The Palace, BGC, last December 2 2015.

It was a night filled with laughter and wonderful stories. A night that everyone will truly look back and remember.

Hello Nuffnangers!

How about a dose of Vitamin Sea for a cause?

Help free our Manila Bay of trash by volunteering at the 2nd annual SM by the Bay Coastal Cleanup Drive (SMBCC) which will be held at the 1.3-kilometer stretch of the SM by the BAY Central Park this Saturday, September 19, 2015. Mounted by SM by the BAY, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Cares, this successful coastal cleanup which started last year is done in support of the International Coastal Cleanup program of the environmental non-profit group, Ocean Conservancy.

This year’s bigger and better coastal cleanup is supported by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Philippine Coastguard and the local government of Pasay.

The event is expected to attract hundreds of volunteers from different private and non-government organizations and you could be one too! Participants of the Coastal Cleanup can register for the event as early as 5:30 am.

Last year, the Coastal Cleanup drive was able to collect 2,454,500 kilos of trash, including 2,293 pieces of slippers and shoes, 1,813 pieces of food wrappers, 1,495 pieces of take away containers, 998 bamboo and wood, 882 beverage bottles, and 605 cigarette butts. This year, with an even larger area activated for the cleanup, more participants, partners and volunteers were invited to join.

Similarly, and as part of the International Coastal Cleanup program, participants of the cleanup drive will be again asked to document the trash they collect, with the data gathered to be sent directly to Ocean Conservancy.

The SM by the BAY Coastal Cleanup is an annual environmental awareness event wherein the coastal waters of Manila Bay will be celebrated and invigorated, not just for a day, but it will be an active drive that is promoted and supported the whole year-round.

With the continuing support of its local partners and sponsors, SM by the BAY is committed to the environment through raising awareness of ocean conservation, promoting community-based involvement, and improving the quality of the immediate area of Pasay City.

So, guys and girls, ready those shades and sunblock. Time to clear the coast!

Hey Nuffnangers!

Last Wednesday night, August 5, we celebrated an intimate yet entertaining mid-year gathering with our amazing talents, bloggers and influencers over some sumptuous wine paired with unusual but delicious pika-pika courtesy of Planet Grapes, Shangri-la Plaza.

Planet Grapes PH with their catchphrase, “Wine without the Drama”, was definitely the best venue for our 2015 mid-year event, “Wine Not Whine”. IMG_3952 IMG_3860 IMG_3877IMG_3947editIMG_3946

It was a fun and insightful afternoon at Chevrolet’s TRAVEL TAILS: KNOW MORE ABOUT YOUR PUP AND KEEP THEM HAPPY event last July 23 at Chevrolet Makati. Everyone learned so much about how a dog is a part of our lifestyle, and of course, part of our travels!

The event featured Chevrolet’s top  dog-friendly SUVs – the Trailblazer and CaptivaTrailblazer

After the seminar, Sir Jojo also answered some questions from the audience.

Here’s what we learned during the event:

  • Not all canines can handle road trips, so it’s best to take a few practice runs before a major journey.
  • Restrain dogs during car trips for their safety and yours. The Chevrolet Trailblazer’s spacious cargo area can accommodate a good-size pet carrier. Never let a pet ride in front because it could be seriously injured or killed if an air bag deploys.
  • As with children, never leave any pet alone in the car. On a warm, sunny day, even with the windows open, a parked vehicle can become dangerously hot in no time, and heatstroke can develop. Furthermore, unattended pets can be stolen.
  • For dogs with anxiety issues or who bark a lot, try a chew treat to keep them occupied. Chewing and licking are very soothing to dogs, and may help yours relax.
  • Identify dog-friendly restaurants, hotels and dog parks on your travel route.
  • Some people snacks – like chocolate – can be fatal to dogs. Make sure that your picnic basket or food stash is not accessible to your dog.
  • Incase you become separated with your pet, carry a current photo. Additionally, never allow your dog to leave the vehicle without the collar, ID tag and leash.

Cheers,
