Bounty Fresh Promotes the Health Benefits of Eggs

   Can Egg be bad for your  health? This is one of the misconceptions about eggs. When I was in high school I was only allowed to consume an egg once a week, my grandma said it can cause skin allergy and it is high in cholesterol. I grew up in this thinking that consuming too much egg can harm our health. But this misconception about eggs was all cleared when I attended the Bounty Fresh Egg World Day 2017 celebration held at the Atrium, Eastwood Mall.

A few weeks ago I started checking some new restaurant, bars, and those restaurants that I've never been before. There are places that you know that you can just sit and just order anything on the menu without being intimidated by the place or the people eating at the next table. Casual Dining can be, somehow luxurious but one thing is for sure " You only live once and we work not just to sleep and pay bills, so giving yourself a treat for a sumptuous meal is a must. Someone asked me this question, "Is it expensive to eat in a European restaurant?" , at first, My answer is Maybe Yes, Maybe Not? Just yesterday I chat with her and told her about my dining experience in a modern European restaurant, called the Black Pig .
