Turon for Merienda

I'm not really a banana eater because it made my poop hard. I only eat some when I'm having an LBM.  But because of this best tasting turon from Tubsys, I am now a regular eater.

Plus banana is the best source of potassium, a mineral needed for the proper function of all cells, tissues, and organs in the human body.  Potassium is crucial to heart function and plays a key role in skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, making it important for normal digestive and muscular function.

Have you had your turon?

Manang's Chicken

I first tasted Manang's Chicken at Rogin E's Last Man Running for our lunch. From that very time, I fell in love with their chicken (I do love chicken).  Sweet, spicy and most of all crunchy. Like BonChon chicken, you don't need to put gravy or catsup on it to taste.

Giant Mangoes from Cavite

I was born in the world where fruits are abundant, particularly mangoes.  I've seen different varieties of mangoes; Indian mango,Aapple mango, Piko and Kinalabaw.  But this is my first time to see mango this big!  I'm really amazed!  It's as big as the plate.  My problem is, I dunno its name.  Is there anyone out there who can tell me the name of this big mango?  I will appreciate it much! :)

By the way, it tastes like apple mango.  Not sour, not sweet tastes just right.

Spicy Chicken at Bon Chon, Megamall

Chicken is always on my menu lists. Because of that my friends and colleagues always teased me that I'll be having wings soon.  Speaking of Chicken, Bon Chon Chicken is a South  Korean-based fried chicken franchise restaurant. Their chicken is different compared to other fried chicken because it's being fried twice.  As a result, the skin becomes crunchier and less greasy.

Professional Quality Cutlery

Perhaps you are someone who truly loves to cook – you consider the kitchen your place to create culinary works of art. Each and every tool is selected with care from the poultry cutting shears you use to the knife block you store your cutlery in and every item is treated with the utmost care. For any professional chef cutlery represents perhaps the largest investment they will ever make in terms of cooking equipment so they buy the very best and they expect their cutlery to last for decades. As an amateur chef you also want the best; as such you should seriously consider investing in a Global® brand knifeset.

You have to protect yourself from sun's harmful rays while enjoying and having fun. One way of protecting yourself is by applying sunblock unto skin. SunProtec is a revolutionary skin care product of Kohl Industries Corporation, a leading manufacturer of industrial and personal care products.

Tips on Losing Weight after the Holidays

All of you will agree to me if I say that you've gained more pounds after the Holiday season.  Who can resist the temptation of "hamon, lechon, salads and more?"  So to regain back our figure (naks) here are some tips to be followed.

Eat Right.  Choose foods that are nutritious and good for your body like lean meats, soy foods, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruits and whole grains.  Avoid fried foods, too much salt and too much sweet or sugar.  Do not skip meals.  Drink a lot of water throughout the day.  Use canola oil or olive oil when cooking instead of animal fat.  Use less sugar and salt in food preparation and when eating.(aw)
