Food to partake this Holy Thursday and Good Friday

It is that time of the year again!   Yes, once a year the great Philippine nation celebrates with the whole world "Holy Week", as we join in prayer in remembering the death of Jesus on the cross, as we all wait for the coming and resurrection of Christ on glorious Easter Sunday. 

As we celebrate this holy season with our family and friends, let us put the Lord Jesus in the center of our faith.  This is also the season where we experience an exodus of people out of Metro Manila, mostly going to our provinces to see our families, and some going abroad as well to spend quality family time in vacation spots, not to mention visiting our sprawling beaches.  But still some of us will stay behind to enjoy the empty streets and silence from the daily chaos that is Metro Manila.

Well, for us the lucky ones who will be staying behind, since this is practically a food blog, let me share to you what restaurant establishment will be open in Manila to serve us during Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.  

As most of the malls in the metro are closed for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, where almost all restaurants have opened recently, some of our good friends shared their info as to who and where are the establishments that will be open to serve our hungry stomachs.

Starbucks Relief Mugs now available in the Philippines!

Starbucks presents the

So much detail has been put in making these relief mugs and the quality is outstanding, what's great is that they highlight places of interest and things that leave a imprint in that city's relief mug

Keeping Healthy with Old Orchard Cranberry Juice

Get your daily fill of 100% Old Orchard Cranberry Juice!  You'd be surprised what benefits they have for your health and your body.  Admittedly I'm a soda addict, yeah I know it's bad, and somehow I find it really hard to cut on it, well I try, but still my efforts aren't really paying off. But today I know I can do something about it.

I'm trying to cut down on my soda intake and concentrating on other choices like fruit juices and the basic element water, but let's start learning more about what cranberry juice can do for us.

What’s in every serving of cranberry juice? Each eight-ounce serving of 100% Old Orchard Cranberry Juice counts as two servings of fruit. Did you know that the American Cancer Society recommends that you eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day? Old Orchard 100% Juices can help you meet your “Five-A-Day” goal.

Apart from getting our daily fruit intake requirement, Cranberry Juice helps prevent kidney disorder. Kidney failure is the 9th leading cause of death among Filipinos. One Filipino develops chronic renal failure every hour and there is more than 14,000 Filipino patients undergoing dialysis yearly.
