Experienced hitting two birds with one stone. Since I was invited in this event, it is not a requirement, but an obligation to blog and say something about what happened. In Chino Roces Avenue, where Eco Plaza is located, a good pair of coffee and bread and an artsy environment will be seen, Staple and Perk. It is owned by a 24-year old who is also a Culinary Arts graduate, Mr. Aldrin Lim. Actually, he belongs to a family who is really engaged into industrial businesses. Due to his interest, his father gave him a space where he could exercise his skills and maximize his opportunities.
It is a bakery, not a restaurant or any kind of eatery. He really focuses into his breads since he loves baking. Of course, they also offer good foods and classic coffees. In fact, they have served some of their best seller foods so we could get to evaluate what kind of food they offer.
Mr. Lim wants his bakery to part of the mid-range since they offer not better than Starbucks and not below the average of a simple bakery or coffee shop. Since it is located in a building where call center agents are working, the place is mostly visited by managers who would want to grab a coffee and smoke outside the place.
The bakery opens 24 hours, but they sometimes close it every weekend. Moving forward, they are strengthening their marketing strategy to capture more people in their very humble “tambayan.” The strategy includes opening every weekend and conducting events for people who would really target this place.
Just for you information, since they are conducting great events in their bakery, a board is placed to inform you of their upcoming events. Of course, you could also search for their facebook fanpage or social media accounts.
You may be wondering why I mentioned hitting two birds with one stone. Fortunately, I was able to witness the Mental Assasin of the Philippines named Justin Pino. He is mostly seen in televisions and mostly heard in radio stations due to people’s demand on his skill. He also performs in Staple and Perks Bakery, that’s why I was able to witness his unbelievable magic.
The very humble Mr. Pino doesn’t want to be considered as a magician, he can’t do magic and he can’t read the future. Instead, he can see and predict what’s on your past and tell you what kind of person are you. Plus, he can read minds. So be careful when you meet him, don’t worry, he doesn’t judge. He can reveal immediately what’s on your mind through your gestures and how you move, even if you are in a poker mode.
How? 12 years ago, he experienced an extreme break up with his girlfriend where he started to question his self. He was studying in San Beda where he started studying reading minds. Yes, he wanted to answer his own questions. In his way, this could be a perfect way to move on. Due to his interest in studying minds, he actually searched for a mentor who lives in Australia, and they converse via skype.
He even mentioned to us the methods of budul-budul gang which I can’t reveal. Anyways, he showed us how he do it which you can see in whereyouat.ph, a video is uploaded where his feature is located.
Hindi daw siya madaya, getting prepared lang. Of course, he always receives that kind of comment since he can read people’s minds through first meeting. He even mentioned that sometimes it is unfair to other people, that’s why he chose to move away and stop talking to some instead of judging them.
Believe it or not, he covered his two eyes with coins, tape and cloth, then he started dictating a serial number of a bill which was given just that moment he covered his eyes. Unbelievable. Yes, really unbelievable. This skill is somehow has advantages to him, for business (sales) and training purposes. Sometimes, unfair since there was a point in his life when he was not allowed to join Pinoy Henyo since he is already known for his skill. Instead, they just proposed for a TV Guesting. Also, he offers basic classes which you can see on his page if you are really interested in reading minds.
Also, he already published books which can be found in National Bookstores. Again, this information is for the people who really are interested.
He studied the skill for 5 years and professionally performing for 10 years. Through his last lines, “Ito na ang buhay ko at nakita ko na ang gusto kong gawin habambuhay,” you can really say that his happy, contented and satisfied.
