I hope you enjoy it. Please let me know if you have any requests for more covers thank you!

Another great find at RUINS!

Ruins, is a small "tiangge" or Greenhills like shopping complex located in BF homes Paranaque. It is sandwiched between Pergola and Jolibee along Aguirre St. quite hidden by all the hussle and bussle of the BF community. Most southern folk from the Alabang/BF/Las Pinas area are very familiar hidden shopping treasure that is Ruins and mostly head there for their "Fake" DVD's, cheap trinkets, and other great finds.

I decided to head there today with Raiza (www.misspopquiz.tumblr.com) to buy a movie for us to watch at home on our date day. Whilst walking around and killing time we happened to pass by a store selling watch boxes! Perfect since I still did not have a watch box for my collection of watches. I had been looking online for one the past few days and most were in the 3,000 peso to 7,000 peso range. It just so happened that this store was selling THE EXACT SAME WATCH BOX I had liked from one of the online stores I had been looking at for ONLY 750 pesos! The sales lady even gave me 50 pesos off on the box making it a steal at 700 pesos! Here is my great find at Ruins :

Do you smell that?

I'm a little obsessive compulsive when it comes to my morning routine and getting ready to leave the house. I wake up, take a shower, brush my teeth, pick out my clothes, style my hair, and spray on my cologne. Getting ready is definitely never complete without spraying on my cologne. I always feel more confident knowing that I can make a statement without even saying a word, just with the way I smell and in my line of work confidence is essential. Around 10 years ago most people would have said perfumes and colognes were just for women, but the modern day man knows the importance of smelling good!

I'd like to share with you guys some of the colognes I enjoy using which might appeal to you guys too. I have  6 colognes which I generally prefer :

Davidoff Cool Water
Davidoff HOT Water
Kenzo for Men
Calvin Klein EUPHORIA
Lacoste RED
Body Shop Activist




 I like to use the Calvin Klein and the Lacoste for regular day use because they both smell fresh with that nice hint of spiciness.







The Kenzo and Davidoff perfumes are my choice for my night out colognes. They are much stronger, muskier, and distinctive. Perfect for a night out at a club or on a date.

Wrist SWAG

Around 6 months ago I did my first commercial. I'm not sure if many of you saw it but it was the new McCafe commercial that Mcdonalds released late this year. Well anyway, fast track to mid November and my paycheck  finally arrives! I decided to go and buy the one that I didn't have yet.. a nice watch :) So off I went with my girlfriend Raiza (www.misspopquiz.tumblr.com) to Greenbelt to look for one that fit me perfectly. I ended up buying a Rose Gold Tommy Hilfiger watch which I fell in love with.



After buying my first watch I had the sudden urge to.. buy 10 more :| HAHA! I realized my love for the beautiful, intricate, shiny little time keepers. I had to have another one. I ended up getting another Tommy Hilfiger watch this time with a white face and sterling silver bezel , and a Emporio Armani Classic dress watch. I feel like this is just the beginning of a new obsession of mine.




and i'm now saving up (since i'm broke from all the watch shopping HAHA) for a vintage Chrome Casio watch that caught my attention when I saw someone wearing it around the St. James Bazaar. If any of you readers out there know where I can get one of a good price please let me know :) I cannot wait to add to my collection!


If you guys have any suggestions on nice watch models or stores where I can get a great deal please comment down below. I really appreciate it!

1,000,000 million years later

Its been months since I last blogged and wrote here on ProjectJacobG and I think its about time that I start again. I've been to countless events since my last blog post and I will try to catch up on all of them for you all to read :) IM BACK!

BRGR : The Burger Project

The Burger Project was definitely a food-gasm experience I will never forget! Its recently opened branch at the ground floor of Grand Towers in Taft is a must-go-to burger joint if you're in the area and looking for a filling bite. I was invited by one of the owners (Carl) to come over and try their burgers. I didn't know what to expect but all I knew was my friends kept raving about how good the burgers were.

I loved the idea of having a "Make Your Own BRGR" form! You are presented with a form which looks much like a check-list and you can choose everything from the bun, kind of meat, toppings, to the kind of sauce they top your burger with. I ordered a :

ANGUS beef double patty
BACON
Caramelized onions
Sun Dried Tomatoes
Sauteed mushrooms
Garlic cheese sauce
Mozzarella cheese
and topped with Buffalo wings sauce
= AMAAAZING BURGER!

ASUS Tablet Launch at 360 Bar A Venue


I had a great time at the ASUS Tablet launch today at 360 bar A venue. The food was great, the company was amazing, and the new tablets that ASUS launched are a tech geeks dream come true! Walking through their displays of the ASUS Transformer Pad & Slider Pad made me die of envy. I had to stop myself from grabbing one, stuffing it in my bag, and running away with it! haha! I was hoping the whole night to win the ASUS Pad 300 that they were giving away but sadly it went to some other lucky guy. 

Down below are some pictures from the event and all the information you need to know about the new ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Series & Asus Transformer Pad 300 series.

ASUS Philippines raises the bar in the Philippine tablet market with Transformer Quad-Core Tablets.

Manila, Philippines (25 July, 2012) ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, proudly introduces its expanded Transformer Pad range at 360 Bar, Makati City. The ASUS Transformer Pad 300 takes on stage with the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Series.

Having first launched the ASUS Transformer TF101 in 2011, ASUS’ new Transformer Pad range provides a different take on the tablet realm — an innovative 2-in-1 approach to deliver both a tablet and netbook in one product by way of a keyboard dock. ASUS’ “Design Thinking” approach starts with people, so the Transformer range is not only a media consumption platform, but a productivity tool as well. ASUS designed the Transformer Pads to answer consumers’ lifestyle needs in this new cloud computing era – providing them with choices and endless possibilities.
 

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Series
The Transformer Pad Infinity Series are the world’s first Full HD, Wi-Fi tablets are With a 600 nits, 1920 x 1200 Full HD Super IPS+ display and ASUS SonicMaster technology, and it is poised to be the go-to tablet for HD mobile entertainment.

The NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor delivers stunning gaming and graphics visuals, fast and seamless multi-tasking that matches the demand of the consumers today.

Specifically designed for HD video enthusiasts, it boasts a 1920 x 1200 Full HD Super IPS+ 178° wide view display rated at 600 nits and ASUS SonicMaster sound technology to give users cinematic audio-visuals in a mobile package. Additionally, next generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2 helps protect the screen with improved damage resistance and toughness for a worry-free, on the go device.

The Transformer Pad Infinity has a 2MP front camera for video conferencing along with an 8MP rear camera with a large F2.2 aperture, 5-element lens and LED flash to ensure quality images even in the dark, and like the Transformer Pad Prime, it carries over the Zen design philosophy — coming in at an ultra-slim 8.5mm and sporting a metallic spun concentric circle finish.








ASUS Transformer Pad 300 Series
Targeted at the young and trendy, tech-savvy set, the Transformer Pad 300 Series comes in blue, white and red to reflect their individuality and personal style.

 The affordable tablet with NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor. Together with supreme audio courtesy of ASUS SonicMaster technology, it makes for an ideal mobile web surfing and gaming platform. It features a 1.2MP front camera for video conferencing. An 8MP rear camera with a large F2.2 aperture, 5-element lens allows for high quality images along with 1080p HD video recording.

The Transformer Pad 300 Series comes with a battery life of 10 hours*, and that is extended to 15 hours* once it is paired with the mobile keyboard dock.

The Transformer Pad TF300 and Transformer Pad Infinity will be available in the Philippine market for SRP Php24,995 and Php37,995 respectively by the 1st week of August 2012. Also the Eee Pad Memo ME171 is now available in the market for SRP Php19,995 exclusive to PC Express.

Hitch - Basic Principles

Hitch says it all folks.



Date Movies

Have you ever had one of those days where all you wanted to do was stay in bed with your special someone, put on a movie, pop some pop corn, and relax? Well I sure have. I know this might sound cheesy but i'm quite the sucker for romantic movies. Here's a tip for you guys out there.. 

Your girl will feel the love just by watching some other guy do all those sweet gestures on screen. So put on a cheesy romantic movie and make her happy. 

So here it is! The list of my TOP date movies : 




6. One Day


5. Crazy Stupid Love


4. Serendipity 


3. If Only


2. A lot like love


1. Love Actually


5 Things Girls Look for in Guys

Guys love to ask "What can I do to make her notice me?" well my friends, I have 5 tips that will help you get her to notice you.

Tip 1 :

Girls always look at what shoes you are wearing. Make sure to always have a nice pair of shoes on that compliment and go with what you wearing. Nothing catches a girls attention more then a guy with style.



Tip 2 :

Product. Product. Product. Hair Product that is. Don't go seeing your girl with that bed head you THINK looks sexy to her. Girls like a man who can clean up and knows how to make his hair work for him. I use VIFA molding clay which comes off easily with just water.


Tip 3 :

Its not enough to look good, you need to SMELL good as well. Men's perfume is a must have when going out whether it be day time or night time, to school, or to a party. I like to stick to the classic's like Davidoff Cool Water & Calvin Klein Euphoria.


Tip 4 :

Don't be afraid to smile :) Girls aren't always looking for a bad boy. Most guys feel like they have to put on this "Mask of Masculinity" grin and look angry all the time. No, Smile your way into her heart. Trust me, it works.


Tip 5 :

BE YOURSELF. Don't try to be someone you are not. Try to be as comfortable as you can when you are around girls that you like. After all, isn't the point of finding a relationship to have someone who loves you unconditionally for who you are?

"How To Get A Girl - The Perfect Guide In Ten Steps" By Sarah Bais

Here is some advice on how you can get a girl to like you. We composed this strategy as a ten step guide, as in the following:

1. Know yourself.
You will not get a girl to like you unless you know what defines you. There certainly are some traits that make you unique, like your humor, communication skills, sports abilities. Your looks are not that important as you may think.

2. Ask around.
There are friends around you that enjoy success, even with girls. If you do not know what to do, ask them for helping you with some tips. You may even try a practice date with a girl that is a good friend of yours to see what is going on.

3. Practice your communication skills.
Communication is not all about you talking about yourself, but about listening to what others have to say. You will see how the others will appreciate you for this.

4. Protection is a good thing
In today's world, girls need more than physical protection. They need someone to understand their needs and be supportive. We all are emotional beings and protection means a lot of things.

5. Warm up the conversation
When you are in front of a girl, you should not act as though you are interrogating her. It may be an useful art to know how to ask questions that involve the other in the conversation instead of letting the person out. Let the conversation flow freely without letting it become a quiz test.

6. Afford to take a risk
You do not know before hand how a person will act when you express your feelings. Indeed, this is pretty risky and some experiences may be hard to swallow but you must not give up and practice can prove to be a good thing when you learn how to express yourself.

7. Forget about routine
Let's say you are dating her for some time and the romantic things you do wore a little off. Get off the routine and do something the girl does not expect. Surprise her pleasantly, take her to a dance party, if she likes to dance or invite her to a romantic dinner.

8. You could be a chef from time to time
All people say that men are not crazy about cooking. So imagine her surprise when she sees you cooking for her. You do not have to make a festivity dinner, but a fancy easy recipe you can grasp from a lot of places to impress your girlfriend. If things do not go that well, be sure the girl will be grateful you have been thinking about her.

9. Learn the body language
People transmit all kinds of signals with the help of the body language. When you see people feeling well, their whole demeanor changes for the best, while when they are in a stressful situation, they seem tense. Search for signs in your girl's body language. This can help you prevent some bad situations.

10. Take the humor up your sleeve
Many girls love a man with a sense of humor. When they laugh, people feel less tense and more relaxed. Joke a little, use soft irony a little against you and you will see how the girl warms up towards you.

Top 5 Date spots around the Metro

There's no better way into a girls heart than taking her to a romantic restaurant and being served scrumptious, mouthwatering food. People seem to think that relationships are all about timing. However, I believe that it has a lot to do with being at the right place at the right time, too. Being a lifestyle & food blogger I have had the opportunity to check out a lot of the "must go to" places around Metro Manila. Here are my Top 5 go to date places around the Metro. Check them out and let me know how your romantic evenings go my friends!
