Innovating Tradition, Madrid Fusion Manila's Theme for 2018


Traditional cooking techniques and native ingredients will be at the spotlight for the fourth serving of the Madrid Fusion Manila (MFM) 2018.

Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Wanda Tulfo-Teo announced during the MFM 2017 Appreciation Gathering that next year's theme for the culinary festival is "Innovating Tradition".

“The chefs of today's world are now going back to their roots looking into their pantries and discovering what is available in their own locales – produce ingredients, forgotten or age-old techniques, making them new and responsive to our time,” said Teo, who led the agreement signing for MFM 2018 at The Conservatory of The Peninsula Manila.

Cha Cha's Beach Cafe, A Different Kind of Food Vibe in Boracay


Boracay Island had always been a dreamy escape, and I'm sure many would attest to that.  Without a doubt, beachcombers take Boracay as a place of many interests, including food escapades. 

For sure, nothing competes for a beach vibe without having the famous mango shake, or the infamous calamansi muffin and a copious serving of seafood, of course.

My ALLHOME Shopping Experience


When we left for Italy for vacation last summer, my husband surprised me by finishing the walls and floors of our rooftop as an improvement to our urban garden project.  I had initially planned to render more work into it many summers ago, but life got in the way.

Resorts World Manila's Run with Me, A Successful Second Run for a Cause


Whatever your reasons are in joining a charity run, one thing is for sure, it will be a fantastically rewarding experience.  It may not be true to everyone especially if you were not prepared in doing so, as you may have had a hard time finishing the race or if it wasn't fun for you.

But what I've witnessed early this morning changed my overall thought of running.  Well, I never really run on a regular basis, but if you can consider doing chores in our home, it might fall under vertical run.  In any case, I did find this morning's event exhilarating, even though I hate waking up really early in the morning.

Why We Love our Coast Boracay Staycation


If my husband was a writer, he could have been writing this, but he's not, however, we have the same thoughts and feels for this particular staycation.  I could have learned to read his mind, but his smiles, giggles, and initiatives speak for himself.  After spending half of my life with him I can pretty tell whether he's disappointed or he's plain happy.
