A Love Affair with Coffee (Nescafe Direct Mailer)

Oh how I miss my IMC days... Back when we would have to deal with sleepless nights thinking of marketing strategies and coming up with executions for Starbucks Coffee (who would have known that I'd actually end up doing this for real!) , Sun Cellular, Presto Creams and of course, Vetracin, the brand that played a very important role in the Paul & Fran love story. *sigh* For those who are wondering what IMC is, it stands for Integrated Marketing Communication . This was my chosen course and till this day, I couldn't imagine myself taking up any other course but that. Marketing is my life, even as a freshman in the university, I've been busy getting sponsorships for my organization. Clearly, I have a soft spot for students asking me for sponsorships because I know how stressful this can be..then again, do not dare murder any part of my name for that is unforgivable. tsk tsk Speaking of marketing, a direct mailer was sent to my sister last Thursday.

Always the bridesmaid but never the bride.." This statement has always been present as reason for a number of wedding beliefs in our society. Such pamahiin (superstitious belief) includes avoiding to be the bridesmaid three times in a row or being the maid of honor for someone younger than you for fear that you'll never get married yourself. What happens when a girl who simply adores weddings makes a total career out of helping her soon-to-wed girlfriends and eventually becomes their maid of honor 27 times? Everything is going oh-so-well until her attractive younger sister ends up as the bride-to-be of the man whom she has been madly in-love with for a long time. This movie is your typical romantic comedy flick that can make you laugh and cry at the same time. An added bonus also is that James Marsden, who plays as a young newspaper columnist Kevin, is super duper cute. Ü I love Katherine Heigl's (our heroine Jane) body! Kainis...everything, and I mean EVERYTHING that she

I t's always fun to reminisce about the good ol' days! These were the days when I thought... ... that Santa was real ... that by selling manually typed tv schedules and oven-toaster-baked-banana-cake-made-out-of-ready-to-mix-batters to my relatives would eventually make me a millionaire ... that i can actually have a lil pony out in our garden ... that someday my family and I can live like the Jetsons ... that SUGUS is the best tasting soft candy in the world! It was pure luck that I chanced upon the present day Sugus that is no longer made in Europe but is now produced in Thailand. Opening the attractive red tin box, I immediately noticed that it also sports a new square-ish shape as opposed to its old look that resembles that of a tootsie roll or a white rabbit. Biting into my 1st strawberry flavored candy, I also felt that it isn't as soft as it used to be. However, as the flavor started to come out and as it touched every single one of my taste buds, I was transported
