Shell V-Power Nitro+ Fuels My Adventures On The Road

As a fashion blogger, I like donning high heels with elegant, sophisticated outfits, but like every fun-loving and adventurous young individual, I am quick to kick off those heels and don sneakers and flats or go barefoot if need be, the better to conquer the rough terrain or climb the highest peak to a mountain getaway or prance along the sand in some secluded beach.

So when the good people behind Shell Philippines came a-calling early this month to invite fellow bloggers and people from the print and broadcast media to the 
Shell V-Power Nitro+ Conquer Adventure Media Event, I was all agog with excitement. Who wouldn't be? We're going on a road trip! 
But first, a little backgounder.

For as long as I can remember, Shell has been an important partner in fueling road trips for Filipino motorists and adventure seekers! Personally, my family always gases up at Shell - whether for city driving needs or out-of-town trips. It's so convenient because Shell gas stations are not just gas dealers, they do change oils and tune-ups and they actually have trained mechanics who can do repairs. My mom had her brake pads changed there once and they charge not much higher than most repair shops out there and certainly not the ginormous amount casas charge! Plus. all our pit stops whether we're on the Northern Luzon Expressway (NLEX) or its southern counterpart, SLEX, are always at Shell Stations where you can gas up, buy souvenirs, shop, shop, and shop, and eat! They have all the best fast-food restaurants and super clean restrooms! They're all you'll ever want in a pit stop and more! Best part of all, Shell always has an ongoing promo of some sort to reward their loyal customers!

All through summer until July 31, 2016, you can enjoy prepaid and postpaid perks from your chosen telco simply by gassing up at Shell!

Meet up was scheduled at 7 am all the way at Wild Flour in Makati so I was up as early as 5 am and left the house exactly an hour later. I arrived bright and early despite the rush hour traffic with a few minutes to spare. After treating us to a super yummy breakfast, the Shell team gave as a quick briefing of all the fun activities in store for us that day. We also learned that for the road trip, we will be travelling in style using a fleet of brand new Mazda CX-5s. So our first stop was the Shell Station to fill up the tanks with Shell V Power Nitro Plus, of course, and for a final test before hitting the road. Tire pressure, check! Water, check! Oil, check! Snacks and drinks, check! And we were off to Destination #1: Sand Box in Pampanga! 
Enjoyed this trip with my blogger loves (from left to right), Myke Soon, Earth Rulan, Ana Gonzales, & ChinChin Obcena

After a tiring but super fun-filled morning, we were famished! So, off to Destination #2: Apo Restaurant where we gorged on sumptuous Filipino favorites. 

On the way back to Manila, we made a stopover at Shell of Asia, the most famous Shell station especially for travellers up north, it is a frequent rest stop for motorists to gas up, get a bite, and shop for more souvenirs before hitting the road again. 

We arrived back in Manila around 6pm and we were all in serious need of a quick shower and some pampering so we were off to Destination #3: The Spa along Libis, Quezon City

Finally, it was time for dinner and a night cap, and for that, we headed to Destination #4: Mango Tree!
