The Yellow Rockets Experienced the Ultimate Rush in Robinsons Appliances' Race to a Minute 2023: Winner of The Last Leg Showdown!

11:01:00 PM


When was the last time I covered something like this? Well, I think that was before the pandemic and it's really exciting and thrilling to see the participants go for the prize. So, it was an honor to be part of the bloggers that witness this another winning moment with Robinsons Appliances.

So, this is Robinsons Appliances' highly anticipated "Race to a Minute" and has reached its final pitstop at the Galleria South mall in San Pedro City, Laguna. After successful events in Robinsons Valencia, Robinson Galleria Cebu, and Robinsons Tuguegarao, four teams from the Greater Manila Area will compete for the chance to win up to PHP220,000 worth of appliances and gadgets.

According to Donna May San Luis, Marketing Services Manager of Robinsons Appliances, the event is an annual celebration to show gratitude to their loyal customers who have supported them throughout the year. Since its launch in 2017, the "Race to a Minute" has been a highly anticipated event where chosen participants from the four major regions in the Philippines complete tasks for 60 seconds, vying for amazing prizes and thrilling memories.


“For almost a month, we’ve been traveling around the Philippines to bring excitement and fun to Robinsons Appliances' loyal customers. We’re very excited that we’re are finally at the last leg of Race to a Minute, and we’re very delighted to have it here in the beautiful Robinsons Galleria South in San Pedro City, Laguna. This annual Robinsons Appliances event marks our gratitude to our customers who’ve been supporting us throughout the past year,” mentioned by Donna May San Luis.


This year's event is co-presented by Kolin, Sharp, Lex Service, Inc., TCL, GCash, Samsung, and Daikin and it will give away a total of PHP2 million worth of appliances and gadgets. Aside from the prizes, all participants from all legs of the "Race to a Minute" have also received PHP2,000 worth of GoRewards Points.

The "Race to a Minute" is composed of six pitstops wherein players must finish assigned tasks within 60 seconds. Each pitstop will test each member's physical and mental capabilities, with the earliest time they reach the next pitstop giving them a higher chance of receiving the highest-valued prize. Imagine the excitement not knowing if you can complete the task or not and what's interesting is what prizes you'll going to win. Anyway it was really fun being part of this event. Though not a player but there's still the thrill. We just hope that there will be a similar challenge for bloggers. Anyway we'll be watching out for it.


So, who wins in this last leg of the Race To A Minute? Well, there were four teams and top winner is the Yellow Team or the Yellow Rockets, Red Team or Red Cheers on the 2nd place, followed by the third place which is the Blue Team or the Blue Knights, and lastly the Green Team or the Green Brigades. First or last, still they get to win prizes which is not but for exerting great effort in running and solving problems. So, for the Yellow Rockets congrats!!!!

You can watch the action on my Youtube Channel Kwento Ni Toto, to see that excitement!

Covering The 3 Day Sale Event at SM City Sta. Mesa

8:02:00 PM

The 3-day Sale of SM City Sta. Mesa was an event I did cover last Saturday and being there brings old memories.  It's a total recall of my college days and SM City Sta. Mesa is the place that we usually hang out when classes is over or still waiting for the next class.  It's really great going back!

After arriving, I immediately coordinated with SM City Sta. Mesa staff (his name is Jack) and proceeded with the cover.  Good thing I was able to catch up with the parade where Lorax meet Jollibee and roam around of the parade from first floor and up, making a beat of the band.  After the parade, I started taking pictures of different sales and their discounts.  There were lots of things on sale! I did go from down to up and down again.

After that tiring walk around I met with Jack near the Adobo Connection and introduced me to the franchise owner of the establishment.

From their list of different adobo types I was able to taste some of their dishes. Since I really enjoyed dishes cooked with coconut milk I get to try their Adobo sa Gata which is a chicken cooked in a normal adobo style and mixed with coconut milk. Afterwards we were offered desserts and I picked the Pandan Jelly. It got an ice creaming toppings on it.

A 3-Day Sale would not be complete without some show and performances from different celebrities, so for that day they have Aaron Villena hosted by one of the DJs of Tambayan 101.9 FM DJ Jasmin. Fans did make that ear busting shriek when Aaron Villena started singing and moving towards the audience.

An awesome day at SM City Sta. Mesa!

SM City Sta. Mesa Sale!

2:34:00 PM

Mesa currently is having their three day sale and today is the last day.  So, for those who still want to avail those discounts from SM City Sta. Mesa three day sale you still got a few hours to enjoy.  Better get there and grab those fashionable, classy, and usable items.
