Rediscover your favorites at SM City Manila Foodcourt

I had the opportunity to visit SM City Manila just recently and it has improved a lot from the time that I visited it a few years back. One of the things that I missed about this mall is its Food Court, very nostalgic.

SM City Manila, From the day it opened way back April 12, 2000, Natividad Almeda-Lopez corner A. Villegas and San Marcelino Streets, Ermita Manila just beside Manila City Hall became the mall where locals from Manila and students from near universities and colleges found their new place to hang out with family and friends.

Known for its accessibility for several public transportations and just beside Manila City Hall, it has been a known mall  for Manillennials and Millenials who prefer convenience in shopping and a place where they can make appointments with government offices like Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Land Transportation Office (LTO), MARINA for Seafarers and the like. It was a one-stop-shop where you can enjoy shopping, ease-of-access and of course dining.

With this being said, the mall that you loved always gets better for you as SM City Manila gives it Food Court a fresh new look, improved food stores, and an overall interior that will give you a reason to relive the good old days.

Having a fresh and lively interior is what caught my eyes, it has relived the glory days of SM City Manila Foodcourt where you can choose a different variety of food in an affordable price and with more stores to choose from, create your new experiences on this beloved Foodcourt.

Since we're talking about food, I did not let the opportunity pass for me to try most of the stalls in SM  Manila Foodcourt

Tigdas/Measles: Mga Sintomas, Pagkain at Lunas

Pagkatapos ng Dengvaxia incident maraming magulang ang natakot na pabakunahan ang mga anak ng libreng bakuna na inaalok ng DOH Health Centers. Yung iba sa atin hindi na pinabakunahan ang mga anak laban sa measles, tetanus, rubella at cervical cancer

Nito lang week dinala namin uli si Chelsea sa Pedia nya dahil sa pabalik-balik na lagnat at ang napansin ko na rashes sa may bandang dibdib at tyan nya. Sinabi sa amin ng doctor na patuloy namin obserbahan si Chelsea dahil maaring mayroong Measles outbreak, sapagkat 3 na sa kanyang naging pasyente ng araw na iyon ay postive sa measles.

Nagdeclare ng measles outbreak ang DOH sa Zambonga City noong February 2018, 495 na kaso
sa Davao city starting from January-September 2108, at barangay sa taguig
noong March 2018.

Anu-ano nga ba ang sintomas ng tigdas (measles)? Mga kailangang gawin? Mga pagkain na 
pwede at bawal kainin.

Nutri 10 Plus, Vitamins Perfect For Child's Growing Needs

Summer is already here. The temperature last week was 34°c and its getting hotter everyday. We have to open our windows to make sure that we won't get suffocated because of the heat. Summer is also the season of flu, bacteria that can cause cough and build up of phlegm. Kids should always be geared with proper protection. Their body needs protection from harmful diseases.

That's why I was so thankful that I used Nutri 10 vitamins for my Chelsea. This is the kind of vitamins that she really need. For sure most of you know that Chelsea is a picky eater. She only eat if we have Sinigang or gravy that she put in her steamed rice.

After taking Nutri 10 for almost a month now. I noticed some changes in her appetite and daily routine.  Before, Chelsea stays up until 2 am and wakes up around 11 am. Thankfully that routine changed and she also started to eat vegetables.
As a mom I'm always worried because I know that she is not getting the right nutrients that her body needs.

Say Yass! to Two Greenwich Lasagna Supreme Regular Pans for the price of one

Pasta comes in different shapes and sizes but whatever it is no one can keep us away from loving it whether it be a red or white sauce, Italian, Filipino Style, Pesto or in any way you like it pasta will be a Filipino favorite.

Speaking of pasta, aside from our regular favorites, this pasta has been a favorite of a lot of Filipino, and this is Lasagna, a delightful pasta dish oozing with multiple layers of meat and sauce on every layer of pasta and cheese, giving every bite a wonderful experience.
