This is why I love Yummy Eats!


I love Yummy Eats!

Every year, foodies all over the metro and the rest of the country as well, come to one roof to celebrate the life as it should be.  Living a life filled with fun, flavor and of course food!  This year, Yummy Eats, the country's greatest food gathering, featuring tons of new flavors and a selection of fine treats, handpicked into the line up by no other than Yummy magazine, the country's no. 1 food magazine.  Get to taste bits and bites of delicious treats as they take you to a journey of the best treats in town.


Pictures speak louder than words, as these pictures speak for themselves.  It was already late in the evening that I was able to visit Yummy Eats, but by golly there was still so much food to take in.

Featured in this year's Yummy Eats is J. Co donuts and coffee, the country's newest donut sensation, now open at SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia.  Mochiko, Butterfly desserts, Homemade treasures, and Pinkerton ice cream were some of my favorites.

Adding flavor to the already enticing food treats, here are some that caught my fancy, not because of how they presented it, but just how good tasting they really are.  Wabi Sabi, the healthy veggie crackling, QQ mochi buns and Choclery Artisan chocolates definitely had my sweet tooth, and my favorite lechon, Pepita's Lechon.


It was great to see good foodie friends and chefs such as Bruce Lim and Angelo Comsti, gracing such foodie feasts.  But for me the winners of the night were the ones I bought some to take home.  Kate Bakes, my wife loves 'em so and Crunchy Belly, a sinful yet delicious treat.

Also at Yummy Eats were the favorites of all time such as Serenitea, Goodies and Sweets and Chuck's Grub.  Thank you Yummy Eats for gastronomic experience like no other.  Can't wait for Yummy Eats 2013.  See you then!

Li Li Chinese Restaurtant at Hyatt Hotel and Casino


Li Li Chinese Restaurant at Hyatt Hotel and Casino

Just recently, I had the chance to stop by and visit Li Li Chinese Restaurant at Hyatt Hotel and Casino in Manila.  Upon entering one can't help but notice the lavish interior, fine furniture, and the feeling of royalty as you enter the restaurant proper.  Drawing inspiration from the infamous Li li Ho, this may be the closest that I'll get to be living that dream.


Li Li Chinese Restaurant lives up to its name, and prestigious is not enough a word to describe her grandeur setting.  I would like to hope that one day, I would have a dining place as gorgeous as this.

Magnolia ice cream presents the best of the Philippines!

It’s More Fun Eating Magnolia Ice Cream!

Magnolia Ice Cream, the first name in ice cream, launched its newest flavors yesterday to promote the tourist spots and the festivals of Laguna and Batangas provinces in line with the Philippines’ tourism campaign with the theme “It’s more fun in the Philippines.”

The pioneering ice cream brand in the country announced its Best of the Philippines (BOTP) flavor collection like Macapuno Banana and Macapuno Langka for the province of Laguna and Coffee Crumble and Tsokolate Tablea for the province of Batangas.

MIC General Manager Mayo Alcon said that the flavors best represent these provinces in the same way that the brand promoted Guimaras through its Mangoes and Cream and the Baguio Good Shepherd with the Ube Keso variety.

“We are happy that these provinces agreed to be featured for our new Magnolia Ice Cream flavors. We are hitting two birds with one stone by promoting our new flavors and the country’s tourism program,”Alcon said.

Say it sweeter with Toblerone on Mother's Day

I Love you! Mom

When was the last time you said, “I love you mom?  It’s a striking question people don’t really think about. For some, saying “I love you mom” comes as naturaly as saying it on the phone before hanging up or through a text message.

“My mom lives in a different city, so when I miss her I send her a text saying ‘I love you,” said Anika, who is a stylist. There are even some like Miel Abong, a fresh grad, who says it so often that sometimes she’s not aware that she just said it. “It’s like you take it for granted,” she said.

Females, however, are typically perceived to show affection more easily than males. Several male young adults have said that they don’t say it because they don’t feel comfortable. “It’s cheesy,” they say.

Not all male young adults, however, are like that. In spite of being in their mid-twenties and working the corporate daily grind, there are working account executives that take the time to say “I love you, mom” before heading to bed.

“I’m very close to my mom,” said one advertising account executive. “Saying ‘I love you’ before going to sleep is something that I have done since I was younger, and continues to be something I do today.”
