The Youngest of the Pack is Now Eleven


I'm not talking about the inexplicable character in Stranger Things, the trending Netflix series.  It's now my daughter's age.  As she turned a year higher than ten, I can see that she will achieve what she aspires for even at an early age.  Being the youngest, she had been "the" go-to girl for everything. You know as in all her siblings order her to do this and that - from getting their stuff, cleaning around, and yes, down to the intensely emotional act of injecting insulin to her older sister (well in an exaggerated manner of me telling).

Something like The Case of the Missing Cheese by blank blank.

Where my introduction would seemingly sound like...

Marco Polo Davao: A Class of it's Own

Davao City, said to be the safest city in Mindanao, was hit with a terrible terrorism attack weeks ago.  Heartbreaking news of people not surviving the bombing have been the hot topic in the news for a week since it happened.  However, I still think it still has that charm to bring people in the city despite the saddening news.

French Gastrono-meat at Atelier Vivanda Manila

Whenever I see the French word "atelier," The first thing that comes to mind is design.  Webster dictionary defines it as an artist's or designer's studio or workroom.  So, it did intrigued me when I first heard of this French bistro.

At first, I thought it's all about French cuisine flare and a resto interior that has a boutique-feel to it.
Then came the time that I'd finally had a feel and taste of this talked-about bistro in Burgos Circle, which happens to have earned  two Michelin star.

Pursuing Passion Without Getting Broke

Take it from me, NOW IS THE TIME TO INVEST!

My mother used to motivate us into saving money in the bank as early as 12 years old. She opened up a bank account for me and my sister and promised us that she will double it if we would not spend the money in it when she comes back from working in Milan, Italy.

That simple deed fostered a savers attitude in me and I'm glad I was able to pass it on to my kids. But hey, the season we live in, where modern amenities and adverts rule, money tends to disappear in one click.  I have to admit, college was my introduction to a life of spending pleasure, when malls started to sprung in every city and weekend sales were something to look forward to.

Limited Edition MasterChef Knives at Rustan's Supermarket

Any foodie who loves to cook definitely know the hit reality TV cooking programs, MasterChef US and MasterChef Australia.  If not then shame on him or her!  Just kidding!

Talking about the shows, do you notice the most talked about white apron?  The only apron which MasterChef participants would don during the show and would take off as a sign of not being able to make it to the competition.  What would you do if I tell you, you don't need to be a participant to get one?  You can thank me later after you've read the whole article.

But here is a way better news for you, not only are the aprons available but MasterChef knives too.

An Afternoon of Coffee and Sweets Pairing with Steep and Chef Didier

What can be better than an afternoon of get-together with friends over some perfectly good coffee and food.

So, I opened up our condo unit to have my couple friends Merna and Chef Didier to help them with their new line of business.  Aside from the beauty and wellness products Merna have put up with to support their Spa, Chef Didier, supported with a French cuisine up his sleeve and long years of in passion-oriented job in the worlds' finest kitchen hotels.

Also, i got to meet another passion-shaped guy who with his boldness to get into business as young as he is designed something that could change the way we delight in our breakfast.
