As tasty as it looks

To make sure that the packaging of Doña Elena Olive Oil does justice to its quality, a renowned French designer was tasked in 2017 to create a new bottle befitting a well-loved premium quality product. The result is a strengthened brand identity that is at the same time recognizable to patrons and accommodating to first-time users.

 



Doña Elena Olive Oil’s carefully curated bottle design is a stand-out for its elegant and functional design

 

The new packaging includes two significant, fine engravings on the bottle that are exclusively Doña Elena: the Doña Elena insignia near the top, and the olive fruit near the base. Another detail that customers enjoy is the usage recommendation per variant that is printed on the label, making it easier to choose the right olive oil for your cooking needs.

#QuakerStrongRecipes: Chef Miko Aspiras Quaker Oats Cream Pie


Corona Virus is real, it's too real to me as I'm nearly drowned with sorrow.  You see I never realized it could really affect everyone until it had hit us.  My parents in Milan, Italy got the virus and so does my siblings and their families, including the kids.  Sadly, my mom got deeply impacted as she already had been suffering from acute kidney disease and having her dialysis at their home, even though they are careful, they still got the dreaded virus and my mom perished in the hospital. 

More than ever, we have to take Covid 19 seriously, and so does other viruses.  We never knew when or how it may hit us, but if our immunity is strong enough we will survive.  

I'm thankful I have several munchies and supplements at home that does the job so well of keeping my family protected. One of that is Quaker Oatmeal.  I've had it all my life and I didn't really realize that it too can be very helpful in boosting our immunity, warding off virus threats.  I thought it's just a good way of keeping our guts and hearts healthy as it is rich in soluble fiber beta-glucan. which reduces cholesterol and blood sugar levels, promotes healthy gut bacteria and increases feelings of fullness.

Don't you just find it so convenient to shop online?  With just a click of a button from Shopee.Ph, your cravings are satisfied and in a few days it will arrive in your doorstep without having to worry about roadblocks, traffic and not even the dreaded viruses.

While scrolling through Shopee, I found an interestingly new brand of noodles and sauces.  If you knew me, and have been around quite lately here in my blog, you can tell that I love cooking Italian dishes, but there are times that I want to delve right into Chinese cuisine and for a fact, the Chinese makes sure that their noodles are as good as the European counterpart and above all the sauces.  I guess, it's not anymore a question where soy sauce originated from, right?  So it's just right to point out that great tasting dishes full of umami came from the Chinese people, and Sua Tao does fall on that category.
