Where's The Buzz

Most of us spend Holy Week at home, ready to cover ourselves in comfy sheets and cuddle with fluffy pillows. Step your staycation up a notch and catch the Hoppin’ Easter-cation promo at Seda Vertis North for the long weekend!

For Makati dwellers, you need not go far for the staycation that you deserve. Enjoy your easter retreat at I’M Hotel, with room packages starting at PHP 8,400. Apart from the wonderful overnight accommodation and access to the amenities like their famous Onsen Spa, it comes with complimentary tickets to the Easter Carnival Safari. Fun!


If you’re living in the middle of the metro, just a 5 to 10 minute drive will bring you to where the easter eggs are! Bring the kids to Ortigas Malls and celebrate a Easter Sunday filled with fun and magic! At Greenhills, Tiendesitas, Estancia, and Industria, activities like easter egg hunt, face painting, magic shows and more await all guests!

What's The Buzz

On Maundy Thursday and Black Saturday, tune in to Jeepney TV and rewatch the heart-tugging stories from It’s Showtime 2018 Lenten specials. Catch Destination: Home, Bitaw, Jefferson, #SeniorGoals, and Wang-Wang and take a lesson or two from these tales of true love.

Through a modern art exhibition, Bonifacio High Street together with Church Simplified once again mounts Walkway: Reflections on the Stations of the Cross. Each station is an immersive experience to all the visitors, and makes for a more engaging look on the story of Jesus’ life. Cap off Holy Week with Tiki Easter Adventure and Walkway Concert, both happening on Sunday.

SM Aura jumps in the easter fun with A Day for Bunnies event! On Sunday, let the kids (and the kids at heart) play, with a great lineup of recreation to watch out for. There will be an easter egg hunt, arts and crafts, cupcake decoration, obstacle castle, games, a secret garden show, and a bubble show (wew!) all in store for you throughout the day.

We were all hyped after the Game of Thrones pilot aired last Monday. As we start overthinking about the events to unfold in Westeros, it’s only just to get a reward for hours the fan theory- and meme-research. SKY subscribers get a chance to fly to Northern Island inclusive of a "Game of Thrones" package tour. If this ain’t the ultimate Thrones fan dream, we don’t know what else is! Visit to join the promo.

Who's Buzzin'

Kid personalities Jordan Lim and Mela Francisco are ready to hangout with your kids this Easter Sunday! Leading Araneta Center’s Spacetacular Easter event, the two are charged for the day’s activities—finding the cosmic eggs for the egg hunt, dressing up in cosmic-inspired costumes for the Little Universe Costume Contest, and ending the fun at the Mad Science show.

Energetic classic, “old school”, “good time rock ‘n roll” group KO Jones will heat things up in Poblacion this Holy Week! Alchemy Bistro Bar hosts the 6-piece band from Maundy Thursday to Black Saturday evenings, so set yourself up for a head-banging long weekend starting tomorrow!
