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.

Sarah G.’s Secret to Decades of Success: Explore and Discover

The singer-actress has been in the industry for almost two decades now.
William Shakespeare once said, “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ‘em.” This is something that no doubt applies to Sarah Geronimo, the multi-hyphenated star who is inarguably still one of the brightest personalities in the entertainment industry even after almost two decades of being a part of it.

Some would say that Sarah was meant to rule the stage since she was young, but there was a lot of hard work invested in her career as well—something she had shown since childhood.
