My very own Youtube Channel — VMERCK01TV

Starting today I’m officially opening my Channel in Youtube, until now I haven’t figure what topic other than doing some music cover. So please subscribe to my Youtube channel and let’s see what will happen next ….



Please meet my friend Sebastian Castro a model, blogger, artist and a good singer.  He is not a Filipino but I’m sure he is proud to be a Pinoy by heart.

 I’m so excited to hear that he will be having his first International Movie, The Voyage. I think his character/role is an artist with a very tragic love affair.

I hope that this movie will be released here inManila. But for now, I really can’t wait to see my friend on the big screen.

For more details about my cute, talented and handsome friend; please visit his Blog or follow him in twitter:!/Sebastianslife

Penshoppe New Scents for the Madlang People

Nowadays people are so into signature perfumes and they are spending tons of money just to be mabango in parties, mall and even on their bedrooms.  I’m so into buying expensive perfumes such as Clinique Happy, D&G, Armani Code and Bvlgari.

Last month while I’m strolling inside Trinoma, I went inside Peshoppe to check their new store and I saw these new perfumes for men and women.


 SIGNATURE- Perfume for men

I like the design of the bottle because it is handy and unique. It has a sweet scent and a lil citrusy; it smells like D&G for men (With silver cover). This perfume will only cost you 399php. I bought one just to check if how long it will last and the result was good enough and I can still smell the perfume after a long day of work.

My Rating for this perfume: 3 Needles (///)


Sexy Shimmer (BOMBSHELL)

This cologne is great for Party Goer…because of the glitters and the floral sexy scent. This is really for girls/gays and not advisable for straight guys…you might end up glowing in the party with the sexy smell of a girl. The scent can be compared to VS for the price of only 199PHP.  The disadvantage of this cologne is that you can’t use it on your clothes, because the glitters will be so dominant especially with black dress.

My Rating for this perfume: 2 Needles (//)

Overall, Penshoppe is doing a great job in launching cheap perfumes and colognes for the middle class people. 

So next time when your buying expensive perfumes, try to check and consider some of the local brands that is more cheaper but still have the same quality as with the imported brands.

I need a new Phone! Please help me to decide

This morning i dropped my phone twice, I’m currently using a Samsung Wave II. 

Ohh well I love this phone because it is unique from other common Android/IPhone/Blackberry Phones however I think I need to get a new one since I have a big issue with the screen and the capacity of its memory. 

I’m looking for a new phone and I need you opinion on which phone should I get. Here are the following phones that catch my attention while browsing 

1.)    Samsung I9300 GalaxyS III


It runs with Ice Cream Sandwich Adroid OS and with the latest TouchWiz from Samsung, it also has the new Siri Competitor “S-Voice”, eye-tracking (Smart Stay) and several other clever tricks, which the smartphone has up its sleeves.

The Samsung Galaxy S III features an 8MP camera with burst shot mode, which lets you take 3.3 shots per second. The phone also tracks people’s faces and can automatically pick the best one of the several photos taken in quick succession.

Well Samsung never fails to impress me in bringing new ideas on their mobile phones.

2.) Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support

3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA

 4.) LG Optimus TrueHD LTE P936

I haven’t tried using any LG Phones, but my friends told me that it has a good quality just like Samsung. This phone has a True HD-IPSLCD capacitive touchscreen just likeHTCPhones plus the fact that LG phones are cheaper than other brands. My only problem with this phone is that it doesn’t have a radio. 😛 hehehehe

5.)    Nokia Lumia 800


This is the last phone on my list. Nokia new Windows Phone (Which is a new OS for me), it has a scratch free Gorilla glass(Just like my Wave 2), 8 megapixel autofocus camera with dual LED flash, 720p@27fps video recording and fast f/2.2 lens (Which I really love with Nokia Phones since I’m into Mobile Photography).

Main disadvantages of this phone are the following:

-No Flash support for browsing

– NoUSBmass storage (file management and sync pass only through Zune)

– No video calls and no front-facing camera either

– No native DivX/XviD support, videos have to be transcoded by Zune

The phone is great, however I have some issues in terms of file sharing just like Iphone with Itunes. This phone is powered by Windows but the file management is with Zune(which is not popular here inManila).

These are the top 5 phones on my list. Can you help me to choose the right phone for me? Please participate on the poll below. **Cheers** have a great week

STEAK ATTACK!!! @Grills and Sizzles Dinner Buffet

This is my first Food Blog forVMCDomain and our first stop is the Dinner Buffet @ Grills and Sizzles (Location: 52 Times St. cor. Examiner St., West Triangle, Quezon City).


My Bestfriend told me about this place before the Holy week and I couldn’t resist, so we decided to try the place on Easter Monday with my Allianz barkada.

It was a small restaurant with a great western ambiance. The dinner buffet starts @6PM-10PM for 300++ (Im not sure if it is 357 or 370 php…Approximately $9.00 only. Inclusive of VAT and Service Charge )

They served Steak with Mushroom Sauce and garlic. (It is not the usual cut for a steak, however the taste and texture is just the same with the steak that we usually order in some fancy and expensive retaurants)Image


They also have Rotini Pesto and  it was just ok for me.Image


 The Spicy Sausage and Mushroom with cheese  is a great partner for the Steak . Image


Paella is just right…kulang  lang ng seafoods  🙂Image

Potato Salad is so cheesy…medyo nakakasuya 😦 Image

The dessert was pleasing to the eye. We had fruit jellies, churos and Ice Cream (Cookies and Cream, Avocado, Vanilla and Strawberry). I love the taste and the presentation of churos, I finished 7 servings.

Fruit jellies

My Grills and Sizzles experience was good but nothing spectacular and special, except for the steak and the affordable price.

I give this buffet a 7 out of 10 Burps for this experience!

Sheryl Vicente’s “Sombra” @Privé Luxury

Fashion + summer + Sheryl Vicente = Elegance

Sombra Event last March 29 2012 was a blast! I had a chance to have a glimpse of Ms. Sheryl Vicente’s Summer Collection @ Privé Luxury Clubbing inFortStrip. We arrived @ exactly 9PM and the event started 30 mins after.

The collection showcased her unique and elegant style for the modern Filipina + the fact that she considered the summer season.  She used soft plain and printed fabrics in creating her masterpiece.

Overall, my rating for her collection is 9 out of 10 needles. The collection is superb and totally sheek for the modern Filipina. Athough the fashion show is quite short, it showcase diffrent style from casual to evening wear. Below are the pictures during the event:
