Jin Joo Korean Grill at SM Aura Premier


When I was invited to try out Rack Shack at it's newest branch in SM Aura, I saw this peachy Korean restaurant and I thought it's  a total embodiment of K-Dramas. 

My girls had influenced me into watching K-Dramas and well, I also got caught in this Korean wave and let me just say, binge-watching the series I'm following had been worth it.

'Bring Home A Friend' to your province – Teo


The rustic feel of the ancestral house, the fresh breath of air, and the heirloom recipe of our lolas are staples one looks forward to when going home to the province.

"We invite you to welcome your foreign friends to the doorsteps of your hometown. Our different provinces and regions offer a much more different experience of the Philippines only we Filipinos know," Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Wanda Tulfo-Teo invites.

Spicy Honey Garlic Chicken with Kenzo and Kloe


Oftentimes when you're caught in between meal preparations and trying to get all the work done, you're left with ready-to-cook preserved meats.

I'm long done with that, but, I'll be damned if I say I don't consume Vigan longanisa, bacon, and deli.  Even my favorite Italian hams were profused with salt, seasonings, and preservatives manufacturers dare not say.

A Goal Digger in 2018 and for Years to Come!

I'm starting this new year headstrong.

We ended the year with this message from God, at the New Life the Fort service...

Deuteronomy 3: 18-20
18-20 I commanded you at that time, “God, your God, has given you this land to possess. Your men, fit and armed for the fight, are to cross the river in advance of their brothers, the People of Israel. Only your wives, children, and livestock (I know you have much livestock) may go ahead and settle down in the towns I have already given you until God secures living space for your brothers as he has for you and they have taken possession of the country west of the Jordan that God, your God, is giving them. After that, each man may return to the land I’ve given you here.”
