Certified Bloggers Christmas Party 2014 in Victoria Court


My first time to attend a Blogger Christmas Party. I had a memorable and fun night with my fellow Certified Bloggers and we enjoyed everyone's company. And Thanks to our major sponsor, Victoria Court Malate Manila for our party venue. Different suites are the Asgard inspired from the movie Thor, the romantic Marrakesh Suite, Batcave from The Dark Night. At Victoria Court, no two rooms are the same. We had Asgard room to celebrate our Christmas party. 



Karaoke night and fun games we shared at the party. 




 Asgard Party Theme room is superb. 


Our dinner is all good! We are all "busog" and we all have our own take out's though, lol. I look forward for more party with you guys. So many events, so many suites, all with different themes. Choose the theme that suits your needs. Thanks again VC.

Another Tea Shop rising in BF Aguirre - Tealife Coffee & Tea Company



I love tea but not as much as I love coffee. I like Black Tea without milk. I find it off when it's mixed with milk but surprisingly with Tea Life milk teas it's really good! It was such a fun and educational day when I join to review this tea shop in BF Aguirre. Aside from bringing my kid with me, both of us we're able to taste different variety of milk teas and coffee based drinks. Ms. Kim (partner owner of Tea Life) educates us about tea. What are the benefits of drinking tea. 

What are the benefits of tea?

1. Hydrates our body
2. Help reduce to develop certain types of cancer.
3. Has lots of antioxidants
4. Help reduce stress.
5. Good for our bones.
6. Help to reduce weight.
7. Tea can strengthen our immune system. 

There are 4 variety of TEA. Green Tea, Black Tea, Thai Tea, Oolong Tea. Green tea has the lighter/mild taste. Black tea has distinct taste of taste and has more source of antioxidant. Oolong tea helps to control diabetes. Thai tea has a neutral taste, it contains Vitamin A and calcium booster. The general rule is brewing tea is 7 minutes. However, 3 to 4 minutes is enough to make a good tea.  


Tealife also offers food. They have rice meals and sandwiches.


Chicken Curry and Kim chi Rice is a must-try rice meal here.


Peanut butter sandwich is one of my kids favorite. I love how they present their food.


US Corned Beef with Rice and Chocolate Cookie. Corned Beef is sauteed in onion and mixed with potato. A very Filipino way of cooking Corned Beef.


Potted Plant with Pepper Mint. My favorite and my kids favorite as well.


Authentic Thai Milk Tea has a fruity flavor while the Hokkaido Milk Tea has a caramel taste.


Nutella Choco has a distinct dark chocolate while you can still taste the tea on it. Whey Muscle Milk, is for gym buffs who wants to be more healthy on drinking teas.

We get to learn how to make their signature milk teas.


With our kiddos. These two little food critics know what they want, and what is good for their pallet lol :)


Aside from serving teas, the shop also offer computer rentals.

Thank You The Tealife for having a great day full of healthy foods and teas.

Authentic Chinese Cuisine by: Kingbee Restaurant



There are so many Chinese restaurant in the metro now and Kingbee Restaurant offers authentic Chinese Cuisine. Located in Almanza Dos, Daang Hari Las Pinas. I love Chinese food and I have to say that this restaurant exceeds my expectation of Chinese Cuisine. 


First on the menu is the Hot and Sour Soup. It has veggies and egg. From the name itself, it's a bit spicy and sour. just enough balance of both. 


Cold Cuts Platter is a must try. A complete plate of meats that is mouth-watering and very delectable. These platter has different varieties of meat, has a century egg and seaweeds.  


One of my favorite comfort food is Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet. Right balance of sweetness and sourness gives this dish a wonderful taste. 


A noodle dish which is very popular in Chinese Cuisine. However, a Pancit Canton is not an authentic Chinese Cuisine. The restaurant acquire this dish for Filipinos pallet and what is popular to us. 


Fried chicken. One of the many popular dish in Chinese Cuisine. I just love the platting with a bird made from veggies. Taste is good. 


Meal is not complete without a rice. Young chow/fried rice


Shredded Beef Tenderloin with Mango is one of my favorite dish of Kingbee. Very tender beef and right combination of sweetness of Mango. 


Shrimp Salted Egg is a must try. Not an ordinary breaded and fried shrimp. It is drenched in salted egg mixture. I don't eat salted egg but this dish is really good.


For the desert, Fresh Fruit Platter. Nobody can't resist this desert. very appealing to the eye on how they serve their fruits. Everything is gone in just minutes though, lol. 


Thank You ZOMATO Philippines for another foodie meetup. And Thank You Kingbee Restaurant for all these good food.
