“Give Me 5” Presents a Chocolate Fair and So Much More!

One of my favorite leisure establishments just turned 5 recently, and I wish them nothing more but for them to continue doing what they do best for the Filipino community–offering world-class entertainment and leisure experiences! 

Personally, Resorts World Manila tops my list of go-to places when in the Metro because it just always feels alive, awake and enthusiastic… greeting you with wonderfully embellished interiors, offering a wide variety of quality dining spots, housing a really great cinema, jaw-dropping and heart-melting acts at the Newport Theater, festivals at the Newport Plaza, and many more. They just keep surprising you! 

It always feels like there’s a celebration when you’re there. This time, as they celebrate 5 years of service as a premier entertainment and tourism destination in the Philippines, they’re cooking up these very special “Give Me 5” anniversary celebrations for everybody!

In my head: “If these are already heavenly, what more at the chocolate fair?!”
Now, I’ll let you guys in on a preview of what’s yet to come with these “Give Me 5” celebrations!

From September 11 to 28, the Newport Performing Arts Theater will be presenting 
“Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not): The Opera.” Directed by the acclaimed Freddie Santos, the piece is a retelling of Dr. Jose Rizal’s historic novel, with music and libretto by Philippine National Artists Felipe De Leon and Guillermo Tolentino. 

Next in line is something I’m sure most of us will be thanking them graciously for… Resorts World Manila’s second CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL. Those two words are just perfect when put together! Let me try again… 
CHOCOLATE + FESTIVAL… ah… just divine!

The second installment of this ‘cocoa-loco‘ fest is up and running THIS WEEK ALREADY, from September 15 to 28 at the Newport Mall, showcasing a mouth-drooling exhibit of all things chocolate with a culminating Chocolate Fair at The Plaza from September 19 to 21. 

Also, as they celebrate their MONTH-LONG anniversary with everyone, RWM offers awesome rewards in the form of dining discounts and freebies, cinema deals, mall-wide sales, and more! If you want to learn more about these deals and stay updated (that I highly recommend you do), they’ve made it extra convenient for everyone by creating a mobile app that we can all easily download. It’s called the RWM Mobile Companion App, your guide to real-time information posted by RWM such as the latest rewards programs, movie schedules, and the like. The app is available on Google Play and coming soon at the Apple App Store. 
Now, here’s what when down at their “Give Me 5” Exclusive Launch a few weeks back, with awesome food, and performances as expected. 
Of course I’d start with the food table! The chefs and staff were all so delightful as well. 
Resorts World Manila’s Chief Operating Officer Stephen Reilly welcomed guests during the unveiling of the integrated resort’s fifth anniversary celebrations campaign at the exclusive TAPS Genting Club. 
Chinese executive chef David Chu Wai Fung  (Left) of Resorts World Manila’s Cantonese fine dining restaurant, Passion, served one of the five signature dishes presented that day.
European acrobats, Duo Kvas, entertained guests with mesmerizing, ‘buwis-buhay’ acts!
X Factor finalist Mark Mabasa and Friends (Lucky Robles, Lilibeth Garcia, and JV Decena) performed a musical number too!
The Voice of the Philippines Kids grand champion Lyca Gairanod showed everyone she deserves her title! Genuine talent right there!
Indie singer-songwriter Darryl Shy performed as well!
Crooner Paolo Onesa serenaded us all until the end of the program.

Now here are some selfies with my new BFF Lyca after her awesome performance! 
She’s so down-to-earth! Such a sweet kid!
Thank you for having us, Resorts World Manila! Happy Fifth and More Power!
