Mikael Daez ups the food game ante

As a true blue gamer who used to go on 10-hour marathon computer sessions playing DOTA 1 and going for “BEYOND GODLIKE!” killstreaks with his friends during his teenage years, Mikael Daez knows that gaming and food go hand-in-hand.

The model-turned-actor relates how gamers often have to choose between food and play when one’s real-life energy bar is running low.

Daez admits to making poor food choices in the past, such as going for instant noodles or canned goods, in his bid to defeat other players, upgrade items, or clear quests to advance in the storyline.

As one of the newest endorsers of the country’s on-demand delivery service foodpanda, Daez has now leveled up his food game.

“foodpanda has been amazing in providing a seamless experience to be able to get food without disturbing my gaming,” said the celebrity gamer.

“All it takes is just a few clicks on the foodpanda app, and my food is on the way.”

Daez does not have to quit games anymore to take food breaks as foodpanda allows him to simply hit pause, place his orders through the app’s user-friendly interface, and get right back into the action without losing that all-important gamer’s momentum.

With its list of over 20,000 restaurant partners nationwide, foodpanda promises to deliver one’s favorite meals in just 25 minutes or less.

Staying at home has also become a little easier as foodpanda delivers daily essentials safely and securely. Simply check out stores nearest you, tick your orders, and wait for the foodpanda rider to deliver everything to you right at your door.

The go-to orders of Daez as of late have been pancakes and waffles. Like any tactical gamer-cum-foodie, he has his orders saved on foodpanda for repeat deliveries to save time on ordering and focus more on his gaming.

“It’s been a great experience with foodpanda as it enhances my gaming experience kasi tuloy-tuloy na siya,” says Daez, who is currently playing Fallout Shelter Online, DOTA 2, and Ragnarok M: Eternal Love (Ragnarok Mobile).

In the popular online role-playing game, Daez, whose username is “Beefbelly,” married his wife Megan Young, who goes by “Boneezy,” for the third time this year. The couple shares a passion for gaming and says it even helps them forge a stronger relationship.

“It’s been super cool because we support each other,” Daez said.

“If I want to play my game solo, she doesn’t mind because she understands, then she plays her own game solo, too. When there’s a new game that’s intriguing, we’re excited to try it out with one another.”

“Gaming and lots of comfort food definitely gives us more avenues to interact and grow our relationship,” he added.
