Sugar Factory at Shangri-la Fort Review

The holidays may be over but there’s always a reason to binge on good food!! :) I’ve been busy for the past months (when am I ever given a break!? lol) so this Sugar Factory in Shangri-La Fort review is quite overdue. The first time I actually saw the candy shop was in The Grove in Los Angeles California but it didn’t have a restaurant like the one we have here in Fort. Sugar Factory is known for its sweets but I love their Savory dishes as much as their dessert. I went back after the media event and theyRead more

The Perfect Blend: 5 Tips To Become a Good Barista

Whether it’s paired with hot pandesal (or for some, poured over rice) for breakfast, or taken after dinner for that late-night boost, coffee is the go-to drink for many Filipinos. In fact, we love our coffee so much that the Philippines consistently ranks among the countries with the highest rate of coffee consumption in the world. Needless to say, working as a barista in a country where coffee is embedded in everyone’s daily routine is no easy task. Making the perfect blend to satisfy every coffee lover’s discriminating taste ultimately requires a great deal of skill, creativity and patience. OneRead more

Puttanesca Pasta Recipe for Dummies | Contadina Supermarket Run

My family has been crazy about Contadina ever since I brought home a basket from their launch last October. We stopped buying other instant pasta sauces because theirs are the most appealing to our very Chinese taste buds. I couldn’t say no when I was asked to join a supermarket run at Robinsons Selections Mckinley so I can pick out ingredients that I need for a pasta recipe. They have very affordable olive oils, pastas, sauces and canned tomatoes. I was supposed to use spaghetti or linguine noodles but I went for penne for a change. You can check myRead more

Staycation at Belmont Hotel Manila + Annie The Musical at Resorts World Manila

I started a tradition last year to have staycations instead of holding parties during my birthday. That way, I can get to relax and unwind by myself or celebrate with a smaller group. I sent my parents and friends to Discovery Shores Boracay during my birthday weekend last 2015. For this year, I decided to spend it with my sister at Belmont Hotel in Newport City, across Resorts World Manila. For our first meal, we had a heavy brunch at Cafe Belmont. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much since I’ve never heard of the restaurant prior to my stay. But ORead more
