If you haven’t discovered how oyster sauce can transform a simple dish like a stir-fried kangkong and tofu to an oysterrific dish, the easiest way will be to open a P5 peso sachet of Ajinomoto’s Sarsaya Oyster Sauce. I’ve just tasted it and recognized the difference with other oyster sauce I’ve tried. The oyster flavor is heightened without overpowering the other ingredients and it’s not sweet unlike other brands.I got this quick recipe from Ajinomoto as they launched the cute celebrity Coco Martin as the...

Every mom deserves a treat like this, a facial spa with your closed friends inside the spa room, and then a refreshing and nutritious meal after the spa session. I experienced all these, thanks to Diana Stalder and her mom, who owns Diana Stalder by Dermline and DS Cafe. The cafe is located just within the area of their branch in Gateway Mall, Araneta Center. I can still remember that session, when I was still whispering to myself, “Ah, this is life.”I can hardly clean my face, I mean, I wash it only when I take a bath. I...

Hello Kitty is the only cat I ever adored. I haven’t been a cat person ever since (I’m a puppy person) but when it comes to Hello Kitty, I just swoon. My kids are fans too though we do not collect that much. But Tupperware Brands had released a Hello Kitty limited edition mid-month special we couldn’t resist. Hello Kitty fan or not, you’ll find this collection very much appealing. You’ll see why.Hello Kitty Perfume – You will love the smell as I did. It’s both floral and fruity, but not too sweet...

When I saw the limited edition Jack ‘n Jill Nips Color Series , I got excited with the colors. Nips is a favorite at home, mine is the Fruit and Nut variant, while my girls like the classic multi-colored variant. Since it has been a while since I baked cookies, I thought to surprise my kids with some colorful Nips Cookies which they can nibble while they do their assignments. I just used a basic butter cookie recipe with the colorful Nips on top.  Each pack of this limited edition treat contains single-colored button-shaped candies...

How is your Valentine’s Day so far? Me, it started sweet, with me waking up with a huge Toblerone on my working table and a sweet note from my Valentino. I did not buy anything for him but I thought cooking breakfast made with some more effort and then some sweet whisper of a night to look forward to, will be irresistible for him. I made some heart shaped pancakes and a heart shaped egg using an P88 peso heartshaped pan from Japan Homes. Cooking pancakes is a no-brainer but cooking them in a tiny sheet-thin pan needs some wit. I...

Joining the Daloy Dunong Plant Tour by Maynilad was quite an eye-opener for me. If I will be asked, I think every customer of Maynilad should be able to request a tour like the one we had, not only to appreciate Maynilad’s service but also to increase awareness on how we can all help protect our water supply and resources. Let me tell you a quick recap of how our Daloy Dunong Tour went on and I hope that at the end of the post, you’ll also have the same realizations I had. Veterans Village Water Reclamation Facility Before...

It’s seldom that you receive a gift like this. Something which can make you swoon because you feel special upon receiving it. I wish every deserving woman in the world can get a box like this. Why? Because being a woman is not easy. In this world when there are a thousand kind of standards to meet, we can hardly keep up even with just a dozen.But who said we even have to follow standards, right? It’s exactly what Dove’s #RealBeauty Is Universal is all about. That we should celebrate our uniqueness, our own beauty, and...

I have a can of Jolly fruit cocktail left from last Christmas and so I thought to try this recipe. I had to make it with chocolate graham crackers to make it more appealing to my kids, who won’t refuse anything chocolate. This will be win win for all of us (kids and adults) because it has fruits, it’s a cold dessert, and it’s chocolatey.My Masflex Saucepan – which I mainly used for this recipe. It’s a stainless steel premium saucepan with lid which is safe to use, durable and will never rust. For Masflex...
