Falafel Yo! will give free falafel for the whole day on January 4

Does anyone of you already tried Falafel? This is one of dish that vegetarian people would love to eat. I was able to try this doughnut-shaped patty when i was still working in Hong Kong. My boss really love beans for his diet. Anything made out from beans, we make sure to try it. It doesnt matter it its a new restaurant, or just an ordinary street vendor.

Falafel is made from chickpeas or beans with lots of minced onion and herbs that make it so flavorful. You will not noticed that there's no meat in there. You can eat Falafel  on its own but this is reay good to have  it as a main dish, serve with Pita Bread and some fresh lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes with a nice sauce in it.

What do you really know about falafel?

Falafel is very popular in Middle Eastern countries like Israel ,Syria and Egypt.

The origins of falafel is still a mystery. there’s no exact evidence where and when exactly the ancient vegetarian dish was born, but we can track some of it’s historical impact around the world.

Here are some interesting facts about Falafel you probably never knew about:

1. The Coptic church in Egypt ate falafel as it was a vegetarian solution during Lent centuries ago.
2. As the Egyptians used fava beans in their falafel recipe, soon as it began spreading around the world, each culture had a different version for it. In Israel, the chickpeas replaced the fava beans, and by the time it got to Syria they replaced the chickpeas with foul beans.
3. The meaning of the word falafel is small round thing (pilpal in Aramaic)
4. After becoming an independent state, Israel went into an economic depression in the 1950’s.  Falafel was a cheap, meatless, easy to make solution that spread all over the country at those years and from that time on it became the national dish for the Israelis.
5. The Philippine Independence Day and the International Falafel Day are both celebrated on June 12

As the founding family of Falafel Yo migrated to Manila in 2011, they wanted to share something from their culture with the Filipinos that they thought will be appreciated and liked. With little adoption and keeping the ingredients and sauces true to it’s cultural authenticity, Falafel Yo wants to use this popular dish as a bridge between different cultures around the world.

When you like something light, easy to digest and healthy for lunch or dinner  then Falafel is one of my recommendation.

Good news for Falafel lover

Falafel Yo will open to public this January 4, Saturday, at the Uptown Mall in BGC, and we will give free falafel the whole day to anyone who passes by!

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.

Staycation at Bosay Hotel and Resort in Antipolo

After a gruesome week at work, I was able to spend my off with my family and we decided to have a staycation, with some recommendations from my colleagues and friends, we chose to stay in Bosay Resort in Antipolo.

Although I have read some bad review, we decided to still pursue to see what they have to offer since the place is pretty accessible by commute or by car.

We stayed in their hotel for 2 days and 1 night and here's what I can say with the experience that we had with Bosay Hotel & Resort.

First of all, I am proud to say that I am really impressed with their customer service. It was superb, we were assisted from the time we arrived, during our check-in process and their staff is really courteous.

The staff who assisted us on our way to the hotel even spent the time to explain details about the resort and its facilities, and I can say that their employees are really knowledgeable about what their resort has to offer.

Upon arrival at the Hotel lobby, it has a relaxing am…
