How can you actually distinguish the difference of an organic / all-natural egg to the regular ones we all buy and ate from the grocery or at the restaurant we just dined?   IDK! For all I know, I thought eggs are all created the same. They are all laid by a hen and that’s that. I didn’t know that how a chicken was raised has to do anything with the kind of egg it will lay. had no idea. So, I got my first organic / all natural / fresh eggs from Healthy Options and the first thing I notice was the color of theRead More →

Tim Hortons Philippines

Like everyone else who attended the launch, I was very much excited about Tim Hortons opening in the Philippines especially here in Metro Manila.  I’ve been hearing about Tim Hortons for decades among my friends in Canada. They keep telling me you should try Tims. In my head I tell them “why don’t you go buy me a plane ticket to Canada and maybe I could!”  But what comes out of my mouth is: “Ship some samples so I can try!”  They would, but still nothing beats the real experience. And so when I got an invite to Tim Hortons first Philippines/ Southeas Asian Branch openingRead More →

Jatujak via BigDish

I was missing Thai food so I decided to book us a dinnera at Jatujak via BigDish.  My sister is going to Japan for an entire week so this would be our pre-Valentines fambam dinner.  I picked the branch at SM Megamamall since it was just a few blocks from home.  I made sure everyone is hungry before taking them there, so I did not cook any dinner at all. We arrived 15 minutes earlier than my reservation time of 8:30pm as advised by my friends from BigDish.  Resto resto was not full when we arrived but they had a table reserved for us andRead More →

BigDish App

The most annoying thing when dining out is getting a table at a restaurant you want during peak hours.  You either do two things, wait until an available table comes because you are craving for their dishes or leave to find the next best or a resto that’s not so full. Sometimes it even sparks an argument with your dining mates, “Why did you not book a reservation earlier so we don’t have to eat at that crappy restaurant?”     Why go through it all when there’s a way to avoid the argument and hassle. There is a convenient way now to reserve a table on a restaurantRead More →

Osaka Osho Now

You know the feeling when you eat out or cook in and you always feel you have eaten the same things for a million of times already.   But still you have to eat it because you need to feed yourself something.  It feels awful when eating becomes a chore. I’m glad restaurants I’ve been visiting lately have something new for my palate and dining experiences. Just recently I was at Osaka Osho at Mega Fashion Hall to celebrate with them their third year in the country.  They are known to have the best Gyoza in town and I couldn’t agree more. However, they’re not settlingRead More →

#Eatsperience Hong Kong

It’s been almost 8 years since the last time I’ve visited Hong Kong. I am looking forward to see this city again and see what are the many changes. I’ve been there thrice in different occassion, two solo travels and one with my family. We were there when Hong Kong Disneyland Resort just opened and it was a Christmas Holiday travel with the family. Most of these photos were taken the first time I started taking solo trips out-of-the-country or out-of-town during my birthday month. Our first out-of-the-country trip as a family started when my father passed away. It was our way of mourning toRead More →
