UPDATE: Sun Cellular – Baguio Bloggers Dinner Party at Hill Station
It’s Sun Cellular and the Baguio bloggers turn to take refuge at Hill Station. I’ve never been here with a large group of people before (mostly just Race and me or P3) and I loved every minute of it – dining on good food in the midst of the Hill Station ambiance (Oh yeah, wide windows), meeting new friends, making new friends, and learning about what’s new to the Sun Cell product line. As dark as it was outside on that February evening, it all became bright and sunny with the arrival of light and bubbly, oh so cheerful, Sun Cell representative, Maam Carissa. (“,)
Past introductions, our attendant made his way around the table distributing menus. Maam Carissa gave us all the go signal for choosing our own meals and we picked stuff from the house favorites and slow cooked stews. To make the wait for our meals bearable, baskets of bread were served. They had an interesting twist on the ‘dinner waiting bread’, it’s the only one I’ve had that had to be dipped in oil and then in crumbs mixed with what seemed to be herbs and spices. That additional texture transformed the bread from regular bread to bread on steroids! ^^, For drinks, Race and I got glasses of fruit milk shakes. I appreciated the comforting creaminess these beverages had in comparison to the in-your-face cold fruitiness of the basic slushes.
When our food arrived, it was ‘galit–galit muna’ while we relished our meals. I got Cambodian coriander and garlic chicken which was savory. I don’t like spice (in this case, pepper) but this dish was wonderful. I might have the coriander working with the other spices to thank for that. It was a party with every spoonful and I shared some with Maam Carissa. As accommodating and friendly as she was, she also gave me a taste of her order, Spanish callos. Remarkable the soft, fatty flavor that was tripe, it was almost milky. (In hind sight, I would’ve gone for this, too. Oh well, next time. =b) I then poked my fork around Race’s plate of Moroccan spiced baby back ribs. (So usi me. *hihi) The tender meat had a nice charbroiled-iness to it, a smoky taste that also found itself on the rice it was served with – yum!
Angry moments over, the representative for Sun Cell asked who among the group makes use of Sun. Sir Dean and Sir Yam had nothing but good things to say about their mobile plans and their internet connection. Cheaper than other plans, strong signal, no issues, and fast. (I recalled my sister’s whole family has a Sun Cell mobile plan. Meanwhile, Race began thinking about switching to Sun broadbad. =))
Speaking of Sun broadband, Maam Carissa raffled two of these out by asking us two questions about their products. Waiting for the ever popular death by chocolate dessert (as recommended by Foursquare upon check in to Hill Station), we put our thinking caps on for the name of the SIM which you can personalize the number of and the price of some of Sun Cellular’s broadband plans. With quick thinking and also quick fingers to access Hill Station’s wifi, Ms. Sam and Sir Ash got the right answers. \m/ They’re basking in Sun connected-ness right now. Oh, me envy, me envy!
I took solace in our sweet treat which arrived just in time after the raffle. The table fell quiet for a moment as everyone experienced dying at the hands of chocolate cake topped with ice cream. =)) With every bit I shoveled into my mouth, I felt better. The ultimate comfort food, it seemed to be working its magic on Maam Carissa, too. =D Getting to the edge of the ramekin, I was reminded of happy pizzuki with the choco stuck on its sides. Race and I scraped away until there was nothing, absolutely nothing left in the ramekin.
Just like any self-respecting party, Sun Cell sent us off with parting gifts, a goodie bag of sorts wherein I had quiet imaginings of a cellphone inside. I’m that kind of dreamer, a big dreamer *heeharhar.
The Sun Cellular – Baguio bloggers dinner party at Hill Station goes to show that happy meetings go perfectly with good food, a nice place, and good friends (both old and new). (“,)
So what’s in the goodie bag?
- A Sun Cell pen,
- A bright light-my-way super-amusing keychain *ohhh, flashy!,
- The Sun Cell lanyard (the good choice!),
- A Sun Cell sports bottle (Wee! I can carry water on walks with my furry loved ones more easily now! \m/),
- and MY VERY OWN Sun Cellular Name Ur Numb3r SIM card.
We’ve got a strong Sun support! Weee! ^^,
More about Sun Cellular’s Name Ur Numb3r SIM:
The first in the country, you can pick your own digits and have a number that spells out something meaningful to you. No more settling for numbers like 0922-777-8888 just so you can remember them easily. Name your number with Sun Cellular SIM starting with the number prefix 0942-8 like 0942-8-I-KIKAY or how about your business name like 0942-8-1-UKAY-2? (Stands for #1 ukay-ukay. So sorry, I’m not good at naming things. *hee)
Upon registration of your number, you get your SIM loaded with a P50 call and text combo free. Not only that, you get 200 texts to other networks. You also get 200 Sun texts and 70 minutes worth of Sun calls. (Five-day validity.) Get all this from a P59 SIM and name ur numb3r in a snap!
Now, if you guys will excuse me, I have to give some thought to what my Sun Cell number’s going to be. How does 0942-8-I-M-XINE sound? Hhhmmm, 0942-8-X-MARKS? 0942-8-GO-FOOD? 0942-8(ate)-BAGUIO? …
