How do you think watching a movie at the park feels like? 20 years ago, I think it would have been a kilig date for me and my husband. I remember we used to go to this very same park, QC Memorial Circle, to meet or have a date. We haven’t experienced watching a movie there but I’m sure naupuan na namin lahat ng sulok ng park. Our cell phones, if I remember correctly, for the sake of reminiscing, were Nokia 3210 pa. Those were our bf-gf days, when I was still in college, we were always broke and QCMC was our haven, hahah!

It’s the first quarter of the year and I was just excited to learn that Robinsons Supermarket is continuing on its goal to provide the consumers healthier food options and alternatives. That’s why as much as possible, we do our grocery at a nearby branch. Imagine, in our place alone, there are 4 Robinsons Supermarket branches we can choose to go. Ganyan karami ang branches nila. This March, they launched this year’s “Route To Wellness” campaign with a travel-with-passport themed event  held at the Eastwood...

What are all-natural eggs and how are they different from the P5-P8 eggs we buy from our local groceries? I’ve got the chance to try this kind of egg (all-natural organic eggs) from Healthy Options and their Farm Business Manager explained that the difference lies on the mother hens which laid the eggs.The hens that produce all-natural eggs are grown in a natural environment on a spacious farm and not in small, hot and cramped chicken coops. In these kinds of environment, the hens become stressed-out and the eggs that they produce...

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...
