Papa Kim's Korean Bakery and Coffee at the Ayala the 30th

Two heads are better than one, don't you think?

Same goes in conceptualizing a food business. Such like Papa Kim's, owned by a Filipino and a Korean.
The concept of opening a Korean bakery came from nonetheless than the Korean partner which happens to own another Korean bakery brand in his country.  To make it authentic, a master baker from Korea was sought out to handcraft the milieu of breads.

Ang Huling El Bimbo, A Tale of Friendship, Tragedy and Love, Interweaved Through Songs

Kamukha mo si Paraluman
Nung tayo ay bata pa
At ang galing galing mong sumayaw
Mapa boogie man o cha cha
Ngunit ang paborito
Ay ang pagsayaw mo ng El Bimbo
Nakakaindak, nakakaaliw
Nakakatindig balahibo...

Went home a little late last night with my husband, eyes bloodshot, tried as much to subdue my emotions and forbade myself to well up, with the ever present lump on my throat, I rested on the truth that others felt the same as seeing them touch their faces, as if trying to hide the same sentiments.

Poyo, My Daughter's New Favorite Fried Chicken

I don't go to the north of Manila for just any reason, whenever I do, I make sure it must have been important.  Saying that, I dragged my daughter and asked my husband to drive us to Robinson's Galleria.  

A long time ago, I used to frequent the area, as I would usually go to Greenhills for my tutoring work and would hang out at the mall for some window shopping.

Perry's Tea Bar and Bakehouse, A Worthy Hangout for Tea-tas and Tea-tos of Manila

Because of the dog's joyfulness, our own is increased. It may be a small gift to some but not the likeness of me.  It is not the least reason why we should honor as love the dog of our own life.  I've been looking at our dogs that way since we had them and that's how Perry's life is appreciated by his dog parents as well.  Perry was a fawn pug owned by the Cortez', the namesake of the newly-opened tea bar and bakery at McKinley West, Taguig.

What to Expect on a Holiday Inn Express Stay-cation

Whether you're a luxurious or a practical traveler, you will find Holiday Inn Express as Manila's go-to seasoned hotel which is just right across Terminal 3 Airport and at the corner of every Resort's World Manila happenings.

My husband and I were amongst the few who have tried the newly-renovated units of HIEx Newport Manila. Right after the unveiling, we booked a twin bed and was assigned on the third floor.  Most of the guests were assigned to the upper part of the hotel which still has the old room designs. According to the Sales and marketing people of the said hotel, the renovation has reached the fourth floor and they are still managing to adapt with more exciting changes.

Be a Smart Traveler in Manila with Holiday Inn Express

I tend to be a creature of habit, and even when traveling I inadvertently fall back into regular patterns. The same goes with my need for comfort whenever traveling.  Aside from comfort, there's also practicality where at times comfort and lux can be compromised, that may sometimes be the case unless I get prepared when it comes with the budgeting.  When getting hotel accommodations there are certain standards that has to meet our needs, but it does not mean we have to go to the same hotel brands every time.

Snacking Gets Better and Easier with Jolly Whole Corn Kernels

Did you know that someone with THAT something made my mom-life easier? 

More than anything else, the shift from summer vacation to back-to-school is becoming more and more of a challenge.  I thought having bigger kids could give me more laxity, well, to be honest, somehow, a bit.  But Nah! My kids' appetite gets bigger and their taste for food expands every minute, and yeah, they are ALWAYS, ALWAYS hungry.  What's even worse is when they come home from school exhausted and HANGRY (angry because hungry).
