Everybody loves milk tea!  And it seems that there is a new milk tea place always popping up in your neighborhood, and I'm not even exaggerating!  I remember the early days when milk tea came about in Manila, they were only a handful of them, mostly originating from Taiwan.

Kitchen Tips and Tricks for Newbie Cooks

Are you a budding home cook who finds the kitchen intimidating? Don’t let your fear get in the way of your culinary dreams! Check out these tips from global appliance leader Electrolux to help you find your way around the kitchen. You’ll be whipping up delicious dishes in no time!

Make your breakfast brighter
Scrambled eggs and bacon are breakfast staples. They’re simple and easy to prepare but you can make yours even more delectable with these simple tricks.

How can you make your scrambled eggs extra impressive? Add a tablespoon of mayonnaise to make it fluffier! The creaminess of mayonnaise adds extra texture to scrambled eggs without taking away its flavour—it even adds extra savour! Use a good amount of butter and cook it in medium to low heat. Stir continuously in a figure-eight motion. It’s a trick that even the Anthony Bourdain did as slowly stirring in a figure-eight motion gives the eggs a soft and smooth texture with just the right amount of air to make it fluffier.
