If you’re itching to go gadget-shopping, then head on over to a Digital Walker nearest you (my favorite store for the latest mobile devices and accessories) and spend at least PHP 5,000.00 (or you can accumulate your receipts until August 15) to get this cute, yellow-bright, limited edition Digital Walker Espresso speaker.

Now that’s the perfect accessory for your easy morning serenades while on a coffee or tea brewing session.

Go Crumpler shopping this January

The holidays are over and you must have bought or been gifted with a brand new phone, a shiny tablet or a sleek notebook computer, and now you’re looking for a matching bag that will let you carry all these gadgetry with you, in style. You of course don’t want these precious gizmos easily gadgetnapped or get dropped or broken when you’re out and about. Good thing January is the aftermath of the holiday shopping season, and it’s the best time to grab that Crumpler bag you’ve been eyeing, now at a special price!

Enjoy the Philippines, like a boss

Been using Enjoy VIP PH with my Globe Galaxy Note 2, the mobile app of Enjoy Philippines loyalty and privilege card, that’s a free upgradeable download, currently available exclusively to Samsung Galaxy Android smartphones. With the paid upgraded version, aside from being able to browse the electronic catalog of over 200 lifestyle brands and various member privileges, this app makes availing discounts even easier – all you have to do is show a series of screens to the merchant, and you get to enjoy the perks right away – sweet!

Since 2009, Enjoy Philippines has been extending exclusive discounts, exciting freebies, and special privileges to over 60,000 Filipino consumers at over 800 of the most sought-after and go-to spots in Manila, Cebu, and Boracay. The full membership cost of PHP 1,995 a year will get you over PHP 300,000 worth of card and voucher offers, and for a limited time, if you buy any of the select models of specially-marked Samsung Galaxy Android smartphones, you’ll receive a complimentary 12 month limited membership.

Who wouldn’t want to get the VIP treatment? Of course, I’m only happy to oblige, treating myself to my favorite Instagram’ing joints, whether meeting up with friends for a round of the strongest coffee or lounging on a cozy restaurant with a view of the bustling street.

Already happy with the app, but when I got the Enjoy VIP kit, it’s like getting an early Christmas gift!

The red tin can is the VIP box you’d like to carry with you around, especially this holiday shopping season. It’s like your treasure chest of perks and surprises. 

The Enjoy Philippines VIP kit includes:

  • membership card/s (mine came with an extension card for the wifey)
  • referral card (friends you refer will get you gift certificates)
  • Manila edition vouchers
  • Cebu and Boracay edition vouchers
  • Mid-year release vouchers

The card (above) you’d want to keep in your wallet, ready to wield when you’re at the hottest spots in the metro. Browsing the thick vouchers, which include offers for dining, travel, health and beauty, among others, what caught my eye is the 15% discount at Digital Walker (below), where I usually buy accessories for my gadgetry.

So if you want to experience the best destinations in the Philippines and enjoy the awesome perks like a boss, go get yourself an Enjoy VIP card, or if you have a Samsung Galaxy Android smartphone, go tech-savvy and get the mobile version from Samsung Apps.

For iPhone, iPod, and iPad, get the toned-down iOS version. Screenshots and photos snapped with a Globe Galaxy Note 2.

Apple’s Black Friday online sale, in the Philippines!

For the very first time, Apple Store Philippines is included in the company’s Black Friday online sale, Apple’s annual shopping event, which is only for today. It’s good to know that after finally fully opening up the Philippine iTunes Store this mid-year, Apple’s considering us a market worth their attention. For a quick list of what’s on sale and the discounted prices, check out Technoodling.net. So if you have been saving up for that iDevice you always wanted, now’s the best time to take the bite and splurge.

Apple now offers music and movies in the Philippine iTunes Store

Yep, what used to be a semi-open Philippine iTunes Store, with which we can only buy apps for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad, today Apple makes available music and movies in the online media offering. TV shows and paid books are still missing though.

The Philippine iTunes Store has dedicated a section for Original Pilipino Music (OPM), though it currently features only a few artists. While there might possibly be issues on copyright and label conflicts, this hopefully should provide more opportunities for our Pinoy musicians. I might be wrong but I can’t find local movies in the lists – if ever a big push for our film industry, and how I wish I can finally buy my favorite Chiquito titles.

This is really great news because you can now buy music and movies directly using a locally-issued credit card. What I used to do is buy iTunes cards online and use the credits to shop at the US iTunes Store.

Let’s see if most, if not all, titles are now available, though after a quick check on some sections, such as music videos, items available for purchase are still disappointingly limited.
