Making reunions REAL again

Image
Filipinos are all about family. The mandatory family reunion happens not just once or twice a year, but every chance possible. From Birthdays to graduations all the way to the grand Christmas reunion, family gatherings are always filled with food, catching up, and loads of wholesome family fun.




Lately, we’ve seen many changes in traditional family dynamics — from a simple meal to dance numbers by the grandkids. Families are reaching out to friends and relatives abroad through technology. While technology can be used to connect people, it can also become a wall between family members.

How many times have you walked into a room and you are ignored by everyone hooked on their gadgets? This is the reality that has become the new norm. The simple act of truly connecting has become a valuable commodity that needs to be safeguarded by everyone in the family.

This Holiday season, a brand has decided to take action to advocate for real connections. It’s not asking you to completely give up yo…

We Filipinos really love the Christmas season, more than the food and the celebration, one of the anticipated moments that we are looking forward is to be with our family and loved ones spend time with them after a long year of work or being away.

Why Potatoes Are Good for Pregnant Moms

Image
Nutrition is very important for everyone, especially for soon-to-be moms. When I was pregnant, I was very conscious of my baby’s health and safety in my tummy. And I’m sure us parents agree that dietary and lifestyle choices have a great impact on the health of babies.



During pregnancy, you are not the only one who is eating, the baby in your tummy also eats with you. You need to consume enough vitamins and minerals to meet your daily dietary needs. And it goes without saying that you need to munch on healthy and nutritious food, not just anything you feel like eating.


When I was pregnant, I refrained from eating rice and replaced it with fruits and vegetables, eating hard boiled eggs and boiled potatoes really helped me out, too. Yes, potatoes!
My doctor told me that potatoes are rich in potassium. Would you believe it has more potassium than a banana?  Also, a medium size potato (5.2 oz) with skin on only has 110 calories. Combine that with some eggs and fruits and you got yourself…

Image
Due to busy schedule and fast face environment sometimes we rely on ordering foods from the nearest fast food restaurant which some are really unhealthy stuff. Unhealthy habit such as eating junk food, drinking to much sodas and other salthy foods can be dangerous to our health especially to kids.

‘Tis the season for Christmas parties—and impressive production numbers to liven up the festivities.

In the latest episode of 14/29 Petsa de Peligro JolliSerye—Jollibee’s pioneering digital web series—the Happy Calendar House barkada is faced with another challenge that’s seemingly impossible to conquer during Petsa de Peligro. With VIP guests coming to the company’s Christmas party, and with all the party’s budget spent on decorations and lights and sounds, it got the barkada scrambling to find the best performers for the night’s entertainment.


Good thing that Nina, the “kikay-diva ng Accounting” and the person in charge of planning the party, knows two singers who fit the bill: Christina Aguilar and Britney Fierce, friends from her college singing group. Played by Sarah Geronimo and Anne Curtis respectively, these two characters bring n…

Enjoy Seafood City Paluto All-You-Can for only Php 848 per pax

Image
When someone says the word "dampa" the first thing that comes to everyones mind is seafood, but sadly not all seafood restaurants are the same, admit it or not, you may have some horror experiences to some "dampa" restaurants that you have dined-in wether it be the food, service, price or the place.

Recently, Cebu's best seafood restaurant, Isla Sugbu Seafood City, opened at Venice Grand Canal Mall in Taguig. This place brought another level to our usual dampa restaurant dining, from its interiors that will give you the cruise ship ambiance, and servers willing to peel the shrimp and crack the crabs for you, there will be no one stopping you and your tummy as you dive in the next level of seafood dining.




That doesn't end there, with superb hygiene practices and facilities that are kept in pristine condition, you know that all the food that are served are fresh and safe.




 The Restaurant has a brilliant way of satisfying your seafood cravings to the fullest.…

Rebisco is bringing Filipino delights to global market

Image
When it comes to snack or merienda, the brand Rebisco always comes first. From school snacks,  afternoon merienda and late snack we Filipino always have Rebisco products stored in our house.
When I was working in other country, I always crave for Fudgee Bar, Rebisco Strawberry Sandwich and a lot more but it was really hard to find one in a local store.



For millions of Filipinos living or working all across the globe, a familiar flavor or a well-loved taste can instantly bring back fond memories and rekindle that warm, fuzzy feeling of comfort.

While most Filipino dishes can be recreated in any kitchen, some Pinoy staples require a bit more effort to find.

This is where Rebisco comes in

The snack food giant has been doubling down on its international business, ‘invading’ key markets armed with delightful sweets and treats.

 “Wherever there are Filipinos, we have a market for Rebisco products because our snacks represent a piece of home,” Rebisco President Jonathan C. Ng said. “At the sa…
