Re-tying Healthy Marriage Ties at Escala Tagaytay Hotel


This is the first time I asked my husband about how we've been as married couples, in all honesty, I couldn't say it's all happy and gay. Most of the time, we've talk about political or family issues and less of our marriage, so I'm not expecting him to be serious about it, and well, most of the time he'd joke about his banters either playing stupid or being too discerning.

This is how it went...

Healthier Drinks with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water


After the festivities, it’s time to focus on fitness and wellness. Since Gerolsteiner Sparkling Water does more than just hydrating and refueling your body, why not add this refreshing aid that helps fight off the bloat, constipation, and may even improve indigestion?

Unknown to many, Germany’s Volcanic Eifel where Gerolsteiner originates from is of unique geological character that produces highest quality of mineral water coming from the special combination of carbonic acid and prehistoric volcanic activity. Interestingly, this special mélange of minerals and trace elements produces a naturally smooth taste that helps to neutralize the body’s acidity. The best part? One liter of Gerolsteiner Sparkling provides more than 1/3 of the daily calcium requirement (108 mg).

Best of All, It's in Hong Kong Campaign


A couple of weeks back Hong Kong Tourism Board had launched a new marketing campaign in the Philippines, touted as  ‘Best of All, It’s in Hong Kong.’ It aims to highlight the rich diversity and quality of experience the city has to offer to visitors around the world.  I myself was taken aback and had started contemplating whether my budget permits after our Europe tour on May.

Four videos starring local personalities and the city’s stunning skyline and scenery showcase the very best of Hong Kong – focusing on gourmet dining, fashion & entertainment, family adventures by land, sea and sky, and the Great Outdoors – all introduced by locals who know Hong Kong best.

Get to spend the whole February as "The Valentines month."  Though you may think that getting all romantic and generously amorous to the one you love can burn a whole in your pocket, think again!

Why Your Kids Need to Try Blue Post Boiling Crabs and Shrimps?


 I've been loving my regular visits to SM Mall of Asia lately as many new restos have opened up and one of them is Blue Post Boiling Crabs and Shrimps. This is actually the second branch in Manila and it originated from Davao.  I love Davao and just a year ago my family and I found ourselves wound up in it's beauty.

 We did try a couple of restaurants but we were more in the country side so we missed a lot on that area.  Believe me, you, Davao is a haven for foodies and one of it's pride is Blue Post.  But sadly, we weren't able to try it there.

Golden Cowrie Finally Arrived at S Maison


Cebuanos and foodies who have basked in the Cebu culinary explosion will attest to the fame of Golden Cowrie.  Back in 2015, when my family and I was finally able to visit Cebu, and had a taste of their vibrant culinary scene, Golden Cowrie is that one resto we missed trying out.  It was the only regret I had after coming home from a three-day vacation, spent at Bluewater Maribago and Crimson Resort and Spa.  Since then, I've been meaning to go back together with my hankering for Cebu lechons.

Wickedly Yummy Honeyed Brownies with Almonds


Choosing to eat healthy is the smart thing to do and the best decision one could ever do to oneself, it's an investment your body can truly count on in the long run.  But it doesn't mean you cart off with your favorite food including sweets and pastries.  It may mean cutting off on eating it, not overindulging and sometimes finding ways to replace harmful ingredients with natural ones is the way to go.
