Have a Kruffin, why don't cha?

We all know Krispy Kreme for its sweet donuts. Its Mini series is so in demand that supplies run out every time I go there. Now, they have a new delectable treat to soothe your palate.

Currently available only at the Ayala Ave and Greenhills branches, the Kruffins are muffins done Krispy Kreme style with fruits, nuts and chocolate. On the other hand, the Pull-Aparts are hand-balled rolls of dough, that was, you guessed it, pulled apart and shaped into a doughnut with additional treats (like Sausage and Cheese or Cinnamon).

It surely tastes good with coffee. And you can get either Baked Creation with a Signature Coffee for 99 pesos.

So if you are in the Ayala / Greenhills area, check it out now.

The SM City Sta. Mesa Wi-Fi Session

Recently, I had the opportunity of checking out the food court of SM City Sta. Mesa (the mall formerly known as SM Centerpoint) as part of the wi-fi testing on the different SM Malls across the region.

As par for the course, the bloggers were treated to the sumptuous treats c/o of the different tenants of the food court. Lechon, sisig, and lugaw were among the different delicacies made available.

Check out this site for pictures of the testing.

ASUS raising standards of Netbook Audio

As the world turns, and as man becomes more mobile, netbook technology has to be at par with what one can get at home. That includes audio technology, especially now that people watch things online nowadays.

At the CeBIT exhibition located in Hannover, Germany, ASUS displayed its new SonicMaster technology, which aims to take the new level of netbook audio.

SonicMaster was a result of a collaboration between ASUS and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® will be debuting on the ASUS N Series, with appropriate upgrades on the NX Series of notebooks. The technology uses oversized resonance chambers and specially-placed speakers that eliminate vibration and distortion, while the software engine boosts finesse, ensuring consumers hear amazing vocals and surround elements as though in a live environment.

The Pinoy Town Crier has emerged!

Welcome! I decided to create a new blog to cater to all news, updates and announcements that come my way. This way, I get to spread the word more fit and appropriately.

The Pinoy Town Crier is a simple billboard of all things you should and ought to know about what is going on out in the realm of society and life in general. If there is something going on, I will do my best to let the world know about it. From the little things to the big things.

I live to serve, so if there are things you want to me shout out to, send an email to and I will make sure that is heard.
