I totally agree with the saying “Nasa Dyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa”. I believe in luck, but I agree that to get what you really want in life you need to work hard for it. Mas masarap ang pinagta trabahuhan di ba?
I got an invite last October 29 to attend a Chowking event at Whiteplace in Makati. In the email, the PR have mentioned that the Queen of all media, Ms.Kris Aquino will join the event.
I want to see Kris in person and my son loves Chowking so I confirmed my attendance, and I am glad I did 🙂
Me and my co-mommy blogger Jem of esupermommy.com arrived at the event around 10:30 in the morning.
At the registration table, the PR gave us some tickets to use on every booth in the area.
This for me, is a clever idea which helped us to be entertained while waiting for the event proper to start.
We had fortune cookies, fortune telling, calligraphy and these….
Money Tree – I was given an opportunity to choose an ampao with Chowking GCs inside. The girl before me got a P500 GCs, I was looking for a thicker envelope and I choose the one at the back. It was so funny because it took me a couple of minutes in choosing one, and guess what… I got P100 hahaha (pwede na pang siopao with drinks)
(Excuse my busog face… I was munching on my fortune cookie when Mommy Jem took this photo)
Lucky Charm Bracelet – After the fortune telling (or the evaluation of your birth year), I went to the Charm making booth to have my lucky bracelet. Here is the finished product and they said it is advisable not to let anybody touch it.
there is also an overflowing treat of Asado and Chocolate Siopao plus coffee.
When the gate was opened, we had our lunch featuring some food specialties from Chowking like Fried Chicken, Siomai, Chopsuey, Pancit Canton, Sweet and Sour Pork and Bochi.
The event was hosted by Ms. Bianca Valerio.
While waiting for her turn on stage, here is Kris making pa-cute 🙂
… and after a while, the stage was given to her. She shared a lot of stories about Chowking and my favorite part was when she said that, when they were taking the commercial the endorser may choose to spit the food whenever she can not take it any more because of countless takes… pero hindi daw nya niluwa ang chicken kasi she likes it talaga. That is why she decided to be a Chowking Franchisee, kasi love nya sobra ang food. Naglabas daw sya ng pera nya to be a franchisee (kahit na inoffer sa kanya ng Chowking na i-extend na lang ang contract nya as their endorser). Para kay Kris, mas gusto nya na galing sa kanya yung pera para mas maging responsable sya sa paghandle ng business. Pag kasi binigay lang daw sa kanya, baka hindi nya masyado maasikaso compared ng sya talaga ang gumastos.
Sabi pa nya, madami daw mayayaman dito sa Pinas na may bank account sa ibang bansa pero, dahil dito sya kumikita sa Pilipinas, sabi nya I need to use the money here at tulungan ang kapwa ko Pinoy to have jobs.
Having a business is one of her dreams kasi hindi naman habang buhay malakas sya to be in Entertainment industry. Yan daw ang na-realize nya nung nagkasakit ang friend nyang si Boy Abunda. If ever daw na aalis sya sa Entertainment industry may mapagmamalaki sya na isa na din syang negosyante.
Her first branch will be located at Alimall, Cubao and maybe the 2nd and 3rd branch would be on the Northern part of Luzon (hello Tarlac!)
Mr. Ferns Yu, President of Chowking, and Ms. Kris Aquino, Brand Ambassador and the newest Chowking franchisee hit the Gong as a symbolic gesture of their partnership and commitment to growing the Chowking business together.
Thank you so much Chowking for inviting me. More power to your company and Congratulations to Ms. Kris Aquino for being the new Chowking Franchisee.
