The Hungry Plate Resto

It was still early for lunch but we were all hungry after a short visit from my children’s pediatrician. Since there are so many newly-rise establishments in our city, we tried dining at the The Hungry Plate. I was hesitant at first because I knew it was a fine dining restaurant, meaning, quite expensive compared to our go-to restaurant. But my husband wanted to try it…and the kids were also famished. So, off we went and voila, we were their first customer that day, hehe.

But they have a nice ambiance. Their staff were friendly and accommodating. While waiting for food, they have this area where kids can play so my little one didn’t waste her time playing. Their menu was not really that expensive yet not so cheap.

When our lunch was served, we were delighted to see that their good for 4 menu was more than enough for us. And the food tasted good! Overall, we enjoyed our good meal and all were fully sated. It was worth trying in that new resto and we definitely want to go back in there to dine again!

If you want to try this place, visit The Hungry Plate at Corrales St., Cagayan de Oro City.

Oh, I just love their tagline – “We are open when you are Hungry” (“,)

Battle The Elements: CONVERSE Debuts The New Counter Climate Collection

Launching this Fall/Winter 2016, Chuck II Leads Converse Footwear Against the Wet Weather
With Canvas, Leather and Rubber

Converse

I am deeply honored to have attended the Converse Intimate Media Session last October 24, 2016 at Malberry Hotel presided by Jeffrey Osoc, Marketing PR Officer for Converse. I am glad to be part of this campaign and share to you what best shoes to wear during the year.

Converse is taking wet weather head-on this season, combining classic sneaker designs with premium weatherized features, with the debut of the Fall/Holiday 2016 Converse Counter Climate Footwear Collection. The new collections provide the necessary tools to combat the climate shifts while emphasizing essential weather-beating benefits. The innovative sneaker collections feature a bold mix of colors and materials including water repellent canvas, rubber and leather, and waterproof neoprene. Divided into three unique categories:  Shield Canvas, Leather and Rubber– these collections are intended to stand up against the unpredictable inclement weather.

Each sneaker has been treated to help tackle rainy weather while maintaining comfort and style. The Converse Counter Climate Shield Canvas sneakers have been given a DWR (durable water repellant) treatment, standing guard as the first line of defense against the rain.

For the holiday season, both new and time-honored styles endure the harsh elements with the Counter Climate Rubber collection. These rubber sneakers are winter-ready with water resistant material and heat retention.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas

Designed for the Chuck Taylor lover who can’t give up their Chucks no matter what the weather, the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas sneaker combines the enhanced comfort of a Lunarlon sockliner, non-slip padded tongue and micro-suede lining with materials that can also withstand most climate challenges. Converse has added a water repellent Shield Canvas and a gusseted tongue, as well as removing the medial eyelets to make a durable sneaker that is ready for wet and rainy adventures. The sneakers also feature reflective heel webbing and barrel laces for added visibility in low light environments.

Available colors: Black/Volt, Black/Reflective, White/Lava, Black

Suggested retail price: Php 4,550

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber

Another iteration of the Chuck II will also be releasing this fall – the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber. By incorporating a transparent rubber overlay on the iconic Chuck II silhouette, this allows for the sneaker to breathe while repelling water and protecting feet from the elements. The sneaker includes all the features and benefits of the Chuck II such as a Lunarlon sockliner and a non-slip padded tongue, while adding a beautifully crafted dimensional canvas for breathability, micro-perforated leather lining for comfort, and a heat reflecting barrier at the footbed for warmth.

Available Colors:

Suggested retail price: Php 5,430

Converse Cons One Star Shield Canvas

This season, the Converse Cons Star also receives the Shield Canvas treatment, combining the enhanced comfort of a Lunarlon sockliner with a lightweight and breathable canvas that can also withstand the rain. Added features include a gusseted tongue and removed medial eyelets allowing the sneaker to tolerate wet environments. Traction rubber has also been incorporated to the outsole, providing additional grip.

Available colors: Black, White, Obsidian

Suggested retail price: Php 4,250

Converse Jack Purcell Signature Twill Shield Canvas

The Converse Jack Purcell Signature collection introduces a thicker Shield Canvas with a water repellent finish, and a tri-color reflective heel stay. A mesh lining backing the shield canvas regulates temperatures across a range of climates while still keeping the sneaker breathable. Reflective laces add flare while a gusseted tongue construction will prevent water from seeping into the dual pod Nike Zoom Air insole technology.

Available colors: Inked, Natural

Suggested retail price: Php 5,590

Converse Jack Purcell Signature M-Series

 This fall, Converse introduces a high top silhouette combined with Counter Climate Shield Canvas. Warm, durable and water-repellent, it delivers all-day, on-the-go comfort.
