Lalamove: Fast Metro Courier Alternative for Filipinos!

by Edsel O. Lorete / /

Having problems sending or receiving emergency packages? You are not alone, with traffic keeping that option nearly impossible to fill out. Lalamove, which accepts any kind of delivery (including emergency items..) that could be delivered within a prescribed period within Metro Manila, could possibly help you get around courier problems faced by motorists. I say motorists because LalaMove’s delivery system design uses motorcycles to get around traffic, let alone driving within small streets or alleys that is proving impossible to penetrate on Metro rush hours. “We can deliver anything from documents, invitations and food,” said Albert Go, LalaMove Country Director for the Philippines. “You’d be surprised how even the food industry take advantage of our services for timed deliveries.” Go was referring to health food programs prescribed for by peopele with health conditions needing dietary specifications – which means eating strictly food prescribed by dieticians. “We can deliver that. (Food) for you at a specific time prescribed. It is that simple.” Lalamove’s courier transport design works with an application, which you can download and instantly access from your active mobile devices, and browser, which is a website offering similar services from app. “It is a one registration for first time users. In which case, if you have packages or items needing immediate delivery within Metro Manila for example, the LalaMove app or website provides easy details to avail service in real time.” Albert was referring to app’s design algorithm that allows clients to set details from their Android or Apple devices where to pick up and send package detailed for delivery. “We charged smaller, and by the length of travel delivery, not the size or package’s bulk by the way.” Once the delivery perimeters are set the app then digitally assigns a pick up courier to get package from client’s designated pick up address. Courier service cost is determined before activating courier service, in which case the app, if you do not want paying cash, accepts paypal or traditional credit card charging that you can safely render with your mobile devices. “LalaMoves provides the convenience for customers, and we even have customer service in detail to answer customers queries about LalaMove’s services.” LalaMove keeps track of your in transit packages real time, allowing for a safe delivery on the prescribed travel time period noted on the application. “We accept all kinds of courier delivery – including medicines.” Inslashout asked Go, in cases of medical emergencies, if LalaMove would be willing to deliver a human organ detailed for transplant surgery? Go said, “We have never had something like that requested…but if we can then LalaMove will provide service,” said Go. While LalaMove seem to lean on same transport app service offered by competition Grab and Uber, Go was quick to correct this consumer notion. “We can deliver general items, even gravel and sand, but service does that transport human needing immediate rides to a specific destination.” LalaMove, which is celebrating its first year of business operations in the Philippines, originated from China. “We have vans, apart from motorcycles, in other countries LalaMove is known to deliver items. It is an option for Philippines but with city traffic we saw the best transport alternative for deliveries is through a driven motorccycle,” hints Go. LalaMoves does not a pool of transport motorcycles out for servicing but it accepts membership from Filipinos with motorcyles looking for alternative source of incomes. “We train LalaMove drivers before they get accepted into courier service. It is a growing courier that Filipinos can tap more because LalaMove operates on a 24/7 hours basis,” reiterates Go. While LalaMove is fairly new in the digital transport courier business in the Philippines the company, with its growing patronage from a millenial market seeking alternative services found on-line, is optimistic Lalamove will grow to become a practical source transport services Filipinos can avail “because they afford it.” LalaMove can be accessed simply by downloading the app or traditionally visiting services through its browser activated website. 

Facebook partners with Philippine telcos Globe’s GCash and Smart Communication’s PayMaya for expanded cashless transaction on Messenger app 

by Edsel Thadeus O. Lorete / / 

Would not it be great if you can pay bills, buy load on the social network? It is quick, fast and easy since everybody literally uses social networking for entertainment, work and for business. Well, that choice is now possible after the country’s two competing Telecommunications brands Globe Telecom and Smart Communication have announced simultaneously today to allow consumers do just that…pay your bills, buy prepaid phone loads from the FB Messenger. Here is how that social networking payment or purchasing system works. Globe and Smart subscribers, however competing they are for this particular digital transaction through your mobile devices, can avail of service by simply searching for GCash on your Messenger application. PayMaya, which Smart Communication’s cashless payment options with a designated phone app and physial swipe card with credit card bank features, said registered PayMaya card holders can simply link up their account from the PayMaya page. It is a one time process that activates the card service that you can us now from your active Facebook Messenger application. Globe’s GCash card holders requires a similar process to activate service on Facebook Messenger. PayMay said a designated button appears on the Messenger that you can click, and it will revert you to a designated Messenger page for either telco card. The link up basically allows you to enjoy the card services like sending or receiving money, better yet prepaid loads for your mobile devices. It is a convenient, not mentioning safer, means to transact money without actually going to bank for money transfers. What is best about it, if you are either a PayMaya or a GCash card holder, you can similarly check your account ballances from the Messenger page. PayMaya clarified you need not be friends on Messenger to link up any transactions made possible through these cards, but it quickly lets you send or even receive money even while in the middle of a swelling traffic in EDSA. While link up encourages transactions within your chosen telco card, it might be worth noting that sending money to say a non-PayMaya user requires opening a designated account to recieve sent money. While Globe and Smart have previously allowed financial transactions between PayMaya and GCash, the current payment system extended to your Facebook Messenger is clearly a practical way for Filipinos who practically live their time on Facebook to actually transact easy using their existing PayMay or GCash accounts. Prepaid smartphoners users who are constantly on Facebook Messenger can openly avail these extending PayMaya and GCash cashless transactions while busy communicating with loved ones, gaming or while social networking with other Filipinos actively doing marketing or selling using the Facebook Messenger application. For details, INSLASHOUT getting in touch with your telco for an actual demonstration how the still evolving cashless digital payment system can work to your advantage or you can check out the two card’s live app right now on your Facebook Messenger.

All time Korean barbecue affair for pinoy diners!

by E. Lorete / htttp:// /

What brings the Filipino together? Many will tell you it is food! And many would agree grilling barbecue is a favorite weekend family dining option for Filipinos. Korean barbecue, which is all meat, fancy Filipino taste or craving for tasty grilled cuisines. And if your family craves what my family craves for a sinful dinner outdoors, then Gen Korean Barbacue should make it a worthwhile choice for a weekend feast by the sea bay. The famed Korean grilled meat restaurant, which is equally patronized overseas by Filipinos who loves to dine out like everybody else, details with a meat bbq menu intended for a lengthy buffet experience. In other words, if you love the idea of grilling, you can actually grill and share food on a long kitchen table with grill stove. Gen Korean Barbecue’s menu details with more than a hundred grilled meat choices you can readily budget package, depending on your family’s appetite. Once that is settled, and you can order drinks ahead, grilling commences. Porkloin, chicken and bacon barbecues top INSLASHOUT’s menu choices, and it is a must try for anyone dining with children with picky food habits. It is sweet, sour and mildly salted to tease your grilled meat fancy for hours. Drink choices choices would vary between those who prefer alcohol or soda for meat. Our table settled for that tasty blue iced, which was fantastic with grilled bacon strips savored with Asian salad (or soft rice if you fancy one for a heavy meal), but what top our beverage list was the cold yoghurt cocktail which eased the fatty after taste when eating marinated cooked meat. Choosing meat to grill was fun jump starting our taste buds while grilling marinated large and small intestines barbecued in high heat. Bacon strip barbecue you can marinate with soy sauce sweetened was a kicker for anyone who missed out on lunch. Pork chops, which is a Filipino favorite, proved useful in teasing children’s indifferent appetite. A grilling demo highlighting Korean grilling style showed barbecue, compared to how we normally charcoal grill meat smoked wildly outdoors, cooked just right – without the coal burned after effect on meat. Koreans, while following Gen Korean Barbecue’s alleged secret recipe, is particularly designed mixing olive oil, seasoned salt and soy liquid. Marination includes onion steam, pepper and garlic. Grilling part is tricky since it does not apply cooking oil on purpose. Meat from pork is extracted from heat, and that is what keep other meat from sticking on grilled skillet. While it seem easy cooking meat for barbecue on a non-stick grill Gen Korean Barbecue suggested avoiding mixing meat flavoring while cooking. A staff will constantly change grilling plate before it starts burning, keeping grilling heat on safer level. Seafood is minimally seasoned sweet, salty with a dash of soy sauce. It is a bit of everything you have on the kitchen’s seasoning list, and grilling requires constant stirring to keep meat from burning. It is what keeps cooking meat, including chicken and beef, tender and juicy. Worth noting, for those unfamiliar with meat grilling techniques, is that pork cooks longer than beef. Grilling meat can include vegetables like bell pepper, corn and green string beans. Another Korean favorite is skewering chicken, pork and beef on a steel stick. It is a tasty affair that goes well with light beer or wine on the side. What is great about Gen Korean Barbecue’s restaurant design is grill place’s unlimited meat offering, which blend well with pinoys who fancy eating more with family. It is a sharing experience that would last hours on the dining table, and the grill plate keeps on changing while you eat all the barbecue your stomach can take in one sitting. Mind you the meat Gen Korean Barbecue serves are top of the line – which means you can have Wagyu, Australian, or American meat choices for your next (big dinner) family weekend affair. In the US, where the restaurant is a favorite spot, Filipinos would frequent restaurant for its fancy meat grilling experience. Dining in this restaurant, which includes a bar for those who like to unwind with friends before the heavy dining drill, can sit about 200 guests. Staff service, and you can everyone is highly trained Hotel style, is gently accomodating. Good manners reflect staff attitude towards arriving guests. Worth noting is the restaurant’s grilling smoke free ambience. It is made possible with evenly designed smoke ventillation features. It is free of that intimidating feeling when dining on a heavily staffed restaurant, which accepts phone reservations so you can time visits for family to enjoy the cool bay view instead of rushing to the restaurant from the parking lot. The restaurant’s scenic bay area location is a brisk walk away from SM Mall of Asia’s main shopping artery. It is great for shoppers dining with children, elderly without making fuss where to park your vehicle for easy restaurant access.

Adrenalizing Her Majesty’s Elite Brotherhood of British Spies 

Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Action/Thriller)Cast: Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Elton John

Nothing match the adrenalized action intensity of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Taron Egerton (Eggy) made real the spy franchise 007 holds dearly can hold up to a high octance action blood bath, which is more gamelike once you get to see this sequel. It is not a bad thing! Not at all, but be prepared taking a continuous continously mobilizing reel designed for the millenial’s testing perspective. What made sense, and I would whoever made this sequel motivatingly sensing watching, is the addition of award winning character actors lile Julianne Moore, who plays a mean villain that would make Mini Me shrink. That said, and you can understand how driving digital Hollwood action movie settles, it is fair to say Kingsman: The Golden Circle takes you on a wild ride not even James Bond could possibly endure with a shaken martini shot. The elite British spy organization Kingsmam takes its cue from where the last Kingsman ended, with co-lead Colin Firth’s suave spy character left for dead. But it does not end there, with a series of missle strikes nearly wiping out the entire Kingsman initiative. Eggy is left to mediate what is left of Kingsman, leading a secret drinking pack to an unlikely sister ally in the Statesman, which is the Western equivalent of the elite British spy squad. Eggy, after a few scuffle with a Westernized agent played by Channing Tatum, solicits the help of the Statesman for a daring mission that would hopefully restore what is left of the Kingsman pack. Moore sinks well playing a drug lord outcast somewhere in the wilderness of Cambodia, threatening to ruin worldly civilizations with a wonder drug that blows up people in smithereens. Firth, without spoiling billing, is restored from oblivion. But there is more to this rather mix-matching spectacle for Eggy to shape up, become the one British agent saving the world from a mad villain with a penchant for turning burned drug dealers into meaty grilled burgers. Jeff Bridges join pack playing Statesman overall runner, giving Kingsman that rustic cowboy flare with a cracking whip attitude. How that fares with Eggy makes a fun filled action sequel. Singer Elton John is enjoyable foot playing angst with Firth, Moore’s comic antics. The Golden Circle is a mystery shaping plotting you can probably decipher with this playing review, but it is a small thing realizing to film’s grand and non-stop action phasing. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is every young millenial’s aspiration for a pure action thriller designed to entertain for a glitzy hot weekend cinema run.
