I ♥ Mang Inasal!

Leopard vest from F-STOP | Fashion Stop (SHOP VINTAGE), in a new collection very soon!

Aivan to the rescue! Here's my outfit shot of the day :)

We welcomed the first rainy day of August by attending MANG INASAL's first-ever Media and Bloggers Night held at T.E.A.T.R.I.N.O. in Promenade, Greenhills.

At first, it was very, very awkward to walk in an event filled with food bloggers and media practitioners. Hmmmm... Aisa, Aivan, Ava, Catch, Sarah, Thyz and I were outnumbered, but we were there to wave the fashionista flag, haha! It was really different from our usual events because nothing about it was related to fashion but we really, really enjoyed ourselves in the company of each other along with music performances from various upcoming artists.

Foooood! (Photos from Aivan)

So what was the event all about? It was a launch of the "I <3 Mang Inasal" campaign, a look back at the humble beginnings of the food brand, the reasons why a lot of Filipinos have fallen in love with its chicken inasal and unlimited rice, hahaha, and also, the announcement of the following: its 400th store opening, Grand Gadget Giveaway promo and it's biggest project ever to date, the Mang Aawit Project - all happening this month of August.

Wow, from a small business enterprise, it's really evident how the fast food chain has really gone big time after just a few years in the business.

I'm really inspired with Mang Inasal's success story. Makes me want to think, how will I ever do so well in life - career (and money) wise. Hmmmm.... *thinking* Haha.

Anyway, as a form of giving back for all its accomplishments, Mang Inasal has a new advocacy program - the Mang Aaawit Project. It's an admirable advocacy program that will give eight deserving Filipino artists music grants! Meaning, the food brand will fund, produce their albums and music videos, promote, and give these aspiring singers a valuable exposure to a broader audience.

Mang Inasal screened eight breakthrough artists from different genres. You may not be familiar with them now, but hopefully soon. Here are some of them!

He's really hilarious! I swear. We were laughing our lungs off!

Karir ni ateh! Performance level and the crowd favorite too.

Di ko kinaya ABS ni ate! Sexy eh! Kainis. Haha chos.

Aisa's right. The belly dance that she did was reminiscent of Shakirah. Sexeh!

This project aims to enrich the OPM (Original Pilipino Music) scene. It's really sad how a lot of Filipinos pay more attention to foreign music nowadays and in order to counter that trend, here is Mang Inasal, helping out in endorsing Filipino music and talents. I really hope this opportunity will give out our new artists their much-deserved break.

After all the hearty musicals, Mang Inasal raffled some prizes. I know, I'm not really lucky when it comes these so as usual, it was Ava and Sarah for the win - 2G USB ballers. None from our group won the Asus Eee Pad Transformers though. But you do have a chance when you eat at Mang Inasal's! Check out the promo mechanics here.

Now time for outfit shots!
