CBTL (Iphone Photography)


The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®’s Coffee, Tea, and Mobile Photography

This summer, passion and technology collide in one modish event, as The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® walks everyone through the ins and outs of the latest photographic technique that’s already taken the world by storm—iPhoneography.

Celebrate creativity and learn how you can immortalize inspiration or preserve life’s most beautiful moments—when you need it, where you need it—as noted fashion photographer Xander Angeles teaches you how to take professional-looking images using your mobile phone or tablet.

“This is an effort to put us at par with other countries,” shares Walden Chu, President of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®. “Filipinos are one of the most creative races out there. And we at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® believe that the best way to let that creativity shine is to give everyone the skills they need to cultivate them—using methods and technologies that are very familiar and readily available to them.”

A brand that’s known to satisfy the palates of the most discriminating coffee and tea aficionados in the world, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® represents a distinct urban-chic lifestyle that encourages creativity and innovation.

And because a simple talk just isn’t enough for them, they decided to take Xander’s photography lesson up a couple of notches by turning it into a summer party that highlights some of life’s finest pleasures, including the brand’s latest summer offerings—Pineapple Vanilla Ice Blended and Pineapple Fru-Tea.

“Our new summer drinks were created in such a way that it’s meant not just to complement the season, but improve everyone’s summer experience,” adds Chu. “We’re bringing summer to everyone with these two new drinks; even to those who can’t afford to leave their work for a vacation.”

A refreshingly smooth and creamy drink that mixes pineapple with the delicate flavor of vanilla, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’®s Pineapple Vanilla Ice Blended makes it easy for everyone to enjoy summer even while in the throes of scorching heat.

Using hand-picked tea leaves from the most exclusive locations and mixing it with juice from the freshest locally-grown pineapples, Pineapple Fru-Tea is the ultimate summer refreshment for the health-conscious.


Manila and New York-based fashion photographer-extraordinaire, Xander Angeles can turn ordinary images into works of art using only his mobile phone.


This year, coffee and tea purveyor The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® makes it easy for you to beat the heat and celebrate the season as they bring summer to you with the brand’s latest additions of signature drinks—Pineapple Vanilla Ice Blended® and Pineapple Fru-Tea.

Otterbox Protection

OtterBox® Dares you to Drop

Get protection for what's next at the Drop Test Tour

OtterBox® ReflexSeries® and OtterBox® CommuterSeries® for BlackBerry®

Manila, Philippines—Tenkie Box Concepts launches the first ever Drop Test Tour to highlight the maximum protection that only OtterBox can give.

“Ultimately, we organized the Drop Test Tour to bring the OtterBox experience closer to the people,” Tenkiebox President, Jay Tengco, explained the purpose of the event. “This would allow us to showcase the build quality and durability of OtterBox cases. Sometimes it’s not enough to just claim that we have good cases. The tour will give an interactive experience where people can touch, feel and see. The best way to promote OtterBox is to allow everyone to experience it.”

Otterbox Business Development Head for Asia Pacific, Josh Richardson, pointed out the significance of the products. “OtterBox is not just about making shockproof cases, but giving maximum protection for a worry-free smart phone and tablet experience so that people can focus on more important things.”

Local OtterBox brand ambassadors Jaymie Pizarro, Rovilson Fernandez, and Lorraine Lapus, expressed their admiration of the products by gracing the event with their presence.

The Bull Runner slash dedicated mother, Jaymie Pizarro, uses OtterBox products to keep her gadgets kid-proof. “When used properly, gadgets can be great educational tools for kids. But parents need to protect these gadgets since kids tend to view them as toys handling them roughly, spilling food on them, or worse dropping them accidentally. It’s wise to protect expensive gadgets with products that can deliver optimum protection, like OtterBox. Now, I can confidently leave my tablet and smart phone in the hands of my kids.”

The Commuter Series seems perfect for the lifestyle of model-TV host, Rovilson Fernandez. “I often travel. I love running around the country and engaging in different outdoor activities. Moving from one place to another and juggling many different things is the nature of my work. I used to worry about how I can keep my gadgets safe, especially when I hit the outdoors. Now that I’m using OtterBox, I have one less thing to worry about. Bring it on Mother Nature!"

Champion surfer Lorraine Lapus uses her OtterBox Defender to keep her phone safe. “Sometimes, I simply can’t avoid dropping my phone. I don’t mean to do it on purpose! I love being outdoors but there's so much that goes on especially on surf trips. Everyone makes a mad dash to the beach when the waves are good. Sand, bags and gear sometimes gets dumped on top of my phone. Good thing I’m using OtterBox. My phone is protected from these elements and still as good as new!”

About OtterBox:

Built upon fundamentals of hard work, innovation and perseverance, OtterBox is the leader in the production of premier protective solutions for global handheld manufacturers, wireless carriers and distributors.
