Starbucks Philippines Celestial Siren Collection Jexx Hingo

The Siren has been Starbucks enduring logo inviting customers inside their stores across the world since 1971. The two-tailed siren was taken from a Norse woodcut from an old maritime book. Paying homage to the seafaring history of Seattle as a port city and the journey of coffee itself.

Starbucks reimagines the biggest symbol of its brand by releasing their limited-edition Anniversary Collection featuring the "Celestial Beauty of the Undersea". Showing artworks with the siren swimming in a sea of stars.

As for its Anniversary Blend which started in 1996 to commemorate its 25th year, Starbucks celebrates its legacy of coffee roasting, blending expertise and craftsmanship with a bold fusion of aged Sumatra, Papua New Guinea and Indonesian coffees blended together and roasted. The result is a complex and full-bodied cup with spicy and earthy flavors that surprises with each sip. Available in whole bean and VIA® format.

Another tribute to the mythical sea creature is the limited edition Anniversary Blend Card that features the siren’s blue-green tail with copper-gold detailing that comes with a minimum activation of ₱500.

Through the years, the siren has continuously transformed along with Starbucks growing global community. When the company revamped itself into a coffeehouse in 1987, its muse was coloured an emerald green and given a more contemporary look.

In 1992, the logo was zoomed in on the siren, focusing on her wavy locks and warm smile with just hints of her two tails. Eventually, 2011 ushered the biggest change yet as the siren broke away from her circle and became the icon that we all know today. Now, she remains the welcoming face of Starbucks, pulling in coffee-lovers with her enigmatic smile.

Calling all Westlife fans in Mindanao! Shane Filan of Westlife is visiting and will have a concert in Davao City for the first time! You read it right, the lead singer of the famous 90's boyband from Ireland will be in Davao for a concert at the SMX Convention Center in SM Lanang Premier.
Shane Filan live in davao westlife jexx hinggo

Get to see and hear him live singing their famous hits like "Uptown Girl", "Swear It Again", "If I Let You Go", "World Of Our Own", "My Love", "Beautiful in White", and a lot more. He will be joined by Jed Madela and Morissette Amon.

Shane Filan has been busy with his solo career producing his third album, "Love Always". And has been touring around Asia for concerts.

"This is the first time I have put live tracks on the album. I go on tour so much now that I thought it would be nice to include something that people haven’t had before. There will also be two new songs which I wrote before Christmas and I am so proud of them. ‘Back to you’ is the new single and a song I am very close to. The track is about being on the road the whole time and being separated from those you love. You do it because it’s part of the job but you realize how much you miss the family."

Currently, he's one of UK and Ireland's most popular male solo artists and he has no plans of slowing down. "There’s nothing that makes me happier than singing and being on stage,” he says, “It’s something I am very proud of and it’s what I want to be doing for the rest of my life.”

I'm a big fan of Westlife and I stan Shane Filan since then, so I am in cloud nine thinking I'll be seeing him in person here in Davao City.

Morissette Amon has been a household name since The Voice of the Philippines in 2013. She didn't win the title but she soared high as the "Next Big Diva" of OPM music. People were wowed by her live performances on ASAP and became a mainstay as one of the Birit Queens.

To be honest, I've been a fan since I saw her second live show performance where she sang "What About Love" by Heart. While she's performing in ASAP every Sunday, she has successful concerts and tours not only in the country but worldwide. Her recent string of concerts was in Manila, Laguna, and Cebu. And on September 2, she is geared to wow the Davao audience.

"Morissette Is Made" will happen at SMX Convention Center at SM Lanang Premier and Dabawenyos are raving about it. It's a homecoming of sorts for the Cebuana artist because her father Mr. Amay Amon is originally from Davao. By Morissette's special request, The Unstoppable Darren Espanto will be her special guest at the concert.

“I love Darren because he is my good friend. I thought it would be special if I shared the stage with him,” says Morissette, who will also be one of the awardees of the prestigious PeopleAsia magazine for its upcoming “Women of Style and Substance” issue.

Morissette’s three recent concerts at Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Alonte Sports Arena in Binan, Laguna and Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City have been talked about not only because she can fill up coliseums and stadiums to the rafters but also because of her sincerity and power in tackling her songs.

In Cebu, she mesmerized the audience with her cover of a Regine Velasquez original “Pangarap Ko Ay Ibigin Ka,” with a whistle.

“Morissette Is Made” is produced by AEP Productions and sponsored by SMDC and Frontrow.

Tickets are available at SM Lanang 2nd floor, Wiltelcom, or SM Tickets nationwide. Call 0936 300 0243 for more details.
