Paradise Dynasty at SM Aura

How can I not get excited when I knew about Paradise Dynasty's opening in SM Aura!

It's their third branch and diners could not get enough of their Signature 8-flavored Xia Long Bao.

I don't know how to begin  to describe the wonderful lunch I had December of last year. 

Eating Like a Tourist in Milan at Calicantus Sforzesco


What better way to fully enjoy a visit to Milan than to walk along the busy commercial streets of Milan, view the historical buildings and monuments, breathe the fresh air from the gardens and parks, learn the Milanese way of life from the museums and luxuriate with the food that abounds in every corner.

Va Bene, Still One of the Best Authentic Italian Resto in my Book

"Va bene, mi hai convinto."

In English, it means "okay, you've convinced me."

As I was indeed convinced again.  It has been years since I had something from Va Bene and I was happy to have finally visited again.  Coming here at their branch in Dasmarinas, Makati made me remember my recent visit in Italy, where Chef Massimo Veronessi, the master behind the deli place came from.

Knorr Savor Rich Chicken and Pork at the Test Kitchen Event

Something revolutionary is going to make our kitchen duties all the more exciting.  This was how the Knorr Test Kitchen invitation made an appeal to me when I was invited to the event.  I don't really know what to expect, but I knew this is going to be worth my time and effort in inviting others as well to partake in the eventful afternoon that was.

Exciting as it was, the Test Knorr Kitchen, which happened at Greenbelt 2 last March 30, had been fete for foodies alike.

Conti's Delightfully New All Day Breakfast Must-haves

In the foodie community, one piece of wisdom remains constant- Having a meal after waking up might be the single most important food decision of your day.  Morning meals does not only fuel your body it also supplies the necessary nutrients needed for a productive day ahead.  Countless studies attest that people who eat breakfast are more likely to meet their overall nutritional needs for the day, than those who opt not to.

This thought made stronger when Conti's first launched their four new all-day breakfast dishes at their Greenbelt 2 branch.  When breakfast meals were that important and were made delectable that you are comforted (through the food and the ambiance), what better way to indulge in them than to have them any time of the day.  Breakfast for lunch, breakfast for dinner, well in this case, I'd also have it for meryenda, especially their Croque Madame!

An Overture to our Babymooning at Savoy Hotel Manila

I knew timing is everything in the world of parenting and family-building.  But as a mom, I always fail in that department.  I've been blessed with kids even without asking for them, but I never regretted anything, in fact, if I were to choose a life, I'd still choose the kind I have.  And No, my life isn't perfect, nor have I been living in luxury but God was so graceful to bless our family comfortably and I couldn't be more grateful.

That was why, on my birthday, when my husband asked me what I want on my 43rd birthday, I thought to just freeze that day and let me live that age a bit longer, cause time have caught up with us and we aren't getting any younger, nor our kids are.

So he asked, and I answered,"I want to have a maternity boudoir photograph session."

Maternity Boudoir Photography with Seriously Boudoir

I can't find any reasons why women don't want to have themselves glammed up or even consider having their photos taken professionally.  If you are hesitant because of fear of judgement, or self-doubt, don't.

If I were to talk to my 20 or even 30 year old me, I could have advised to do a sexy shoot or a "boost-your-confidence photo session" and the one that Seriously Boudoir offers is the best of its kind.  But you know, I was so surprised to find myself projecting to every click of Joy's camera.  I actually found it fun, a bit tiring for a preggy mom at her 40's, but fun.
