Chinese New Year is just around the corner. And because of our strong Chinese influence, that means we celebrate that, too! Something that both cultures do the same is eat as a family. And guess whaaaat! There’s a gem of a Chinese place in Tomas Morato. It’s called Oriental Palace and it opened there around a year ago.
A few weeks ago, I have taken it upon myself to endure the challenge of not gaining weight this Holiday season. A feat that everyone agrees that is impossible. It’s unbelievably late, but this is the first, and apparently the only, update of this challenge (minus the result, of course).
This was meant to be a “How to” post. But since I can’t assure the results because I’ve never tried it before, and well, everyone I asked for advise on how to not gain weight this Christmas season laughed at my face (with spit flying in all directions because apparently not gaining weight during the holidays is the funniest joke ever) and told me it was not possible. At all. Like, don’t even hope.
So being masochistic as I am, I took it upon myself to try it so you guys won’t have to.
I’ve noticed that lately, there have been a lot of new beer brands that have been popping up, or have been gaining popularity. Local draft beers, Brew Kettle, and caramel beers to name a few are some of those beers. I can tell how the market for beer had boomed. I guess it’s no wonder that a new beer brand would take its place in the Philippine market.
This is the best breakfast muffin ever. It may look small, but one serving is already very filling. The best breakfast muffin ever combines everything you love about breakfast into one easy to transport breakfast. We have bacon, eggs, bread, tomato, mushrooms! Because this requires baking, the bacon is super crispy and the egg is always perfectly cooked. Just looking at it makes me drool. This delicious breakfast sure packs a punch!
There was a downpour that day. I was alone at home, everyone in my family went out and I was left with our dogs. That day was the day before going to the grocery, which meant that our food supplies were nil. It was mid-afternoon. Lunch was but a far distant memory and dinner was nowhere to be seen in the horizon. Then, the greatest problem arose. I got hungry.
