Ultra Super Green – the best organic and natural grocery hub in Quezon City

Ultra Super Green is a little piece of heaven for organic products located along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City.

Locally grown and manufactured, the products are certified organic yet lower cost compared to the counterparts found in most supermarkets. I got excited to find items i only find in high-end supermarkets being sold at a more affordable price since they are locally produced.

Ultra Super Green products are all natural grown, eco-friendly and prices are competitive compared with supermarkets.

Featuring the some of the top local brands:

  • Milea organics
  • Messy Bessy
  • Yamang Bukid
  • Carica
  • Greenola flax seeds
  • Coco Wonder
  • Alaminos Goat’s Milk Star
  • Creative Baker’s Organic Gluten-free
  • Bayani Brew
  • Organic Alley
  • Green Mama
  • DeMetrio’s local wines
  • Coco Dolce Dark chocolate

The store’s location is accessible to all residents near Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City and situated near by schools/college campuses and nearby UP Town Center. They also encourage organic shoppers like health conscious and some people who wanted to switch to organic food and beverages to visit their store.

Most of the store’s products packaging are unique and creatively labeled. You will also notice that the store uses a weaved basket in the counter and some free sample food testing of variety of organic products they are currently being sold in the market.

Now, you don’t need a special trip to different bazaars and farmers market. Ultra Super Green has an extensive selection of organic products that you could afford.

2017 ToyCon + PopLife FanXperience : Of Toys, Celebrities, and DARNA!

Due to some personal matters, I wasn’t able to attend the the inaugural ToyCon + PopLife FanXperience event last year. Thus, when given the opportunity to cover this year’s iteration, I excitedly made trek to the SMX Convention Center at the Mall of Asia, despite an aching ankle.

And I got a nice treat in exchange for the pain.

A Parade of Celebrities

While the Philippine Toys, Hobbies, and Collectibles Convention does have celebrity guests every year, this is only the second time that they take centerstage in the event. That is thanks to ToyCon’s partnership with Pop Life Entertainment, bringing in FanXperience.

Dubbed the “Ultimate FanXperience”, the pop culture collaboration showcased exclusive show merchandise, exhibitions, and, of course, celebrity guests.

For this second installment of FanXperience, the event had an impressive lineup of guests. During Day 2, which served as ToyCon + op Life FanXperience 2017’s grand opening, present during the ribbon cutting ceremony were:

  • Stefan Kapicic (Deadpool’s Colossus)
  • Karen Fukuhara (Katan from Suicide Squad)
  • Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean’s Joshamee Gibbs)
  • Lindsay McKeon’ (Supernatural’s Tessa the Reaper)
  • Cas Anvar (The voice of Altair in the Assassin’s Creed: Revelations game)
  • Charlie Bewley (Dmitri from Twilight)

Aside from their appearance during the opening ceremonies, the guests also participated in the Meet and Greet event held at at the upper floor of the Convention Center.

Aside from  the international guests, there were also a bevy of local pop culture celebrities present. Among them were YouTube personality and former DJ Sir Rex Kantatero and popular Sentai/Power Rangers cosplayer Chris Cantada.

I unexpectedly bumped into Cantada and his troops of Spidermen while they were rehearsing for their skit later in the evening and he happily posed for some quick shots.

Meeting Darna

But what was arguably one of the highlights of the event for for local comic book geeks (and showbiz fans) was the appearance of the latest actress to inherit  local superheroine Darna’s magical stone: Liza Soberano. Soberano is set to portray the iconic Mars Ravelo character in a new Darna movie to be directed by Erik Matti.

To celebrate her appearance in the event, ToyCon  and ABS-CBN, Soberano’s home network, launched a contest on Facebook for the chance of having a Meet and Greet session with her. I joined  the contest just for fun and amusingly ended up being one of the fifteen. winners. Due to time constraints, the Meet and Greet event ended up being a quick photo op. But I did get this great pic with her.

But since this is Darna we are talking about, the franchise came into full force. There was an exhibition of memorabilia, including some of Ravelo’s original drawings and comic pages for the character and his other creations.
