Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

OUTRE - Liquid Nitrogen Gelato: A whole new version of gelato

It's been months since my best friend and I have been drooling to try this unusual gelato. So one Friday aftee I called my best friend and we head out to OUTRE in BF Aguirre Paranaque. We were having  difficulty on finding this café. We tried google maps and even used some restaurant finder apps and no go. I was driving about 3o minutes along Aguirre, going back and forth at the stretch of Aguirre and I almost gave up until I called the café and after calling them I was able to distinguish where OUTRE is located. Haha... They have limited menu here but we tried their Potato Wedge with sweet and sour cream. Generous servings and BIG chunks of Potato Wedge. So, apparently this is the Nitrogen - refrigerated liquid comes from. They will open this tank and they'll get the refrigerated liquid to be mixed with the ice cream flavor of your choice. Now, the mixing is happening here with my cookie monster liquid gelato ice cream. Tada!!!! My Cookie Monster! Blue colored Gelato wit…

Happiness is in the AIR - SHARP launches 2 new products

Do you ever felt it's hard to breath? Do you have stuffy nose due to allergic rhinitis? Are you allergic to pollens, dust, animal hair and smoke? Having an asthma is not easy to live with. My daughter had skin asthma when she was less than 6 months old and her worst attack was last year. After surpassing SKIN ASTHMA it became an ASTHMA wherein she has wheezing sound when breathing, cough and stuffy nose. I had to buy a NEBULIZER and used it every time she will have Asthma attacks plus, she has to take some oral meds. It's heart breaking to see my child having difficulties and had to do this every time she will overplay and if our country is having erratic weather. Some of my safety precautions is by maintaining our house dust-free, clean and disinfecting all over the house by mopping the floor with bleach or any disinfectant liquid. Use disinfectant spray for sofa, beds, curtains and carpets. This is very costly and added to my grocery list monthly however, a friend of mine …

My 4 year old has been asking me "Mommy where do babies come from?"

Chichi asked me "Mommy where do babies come from?" Oh My GOD!!!!! My soon to-be 5 year old daughter asked me where did she come from? I know, all of us parents have experienced this dilemma with our growing up child and it's not easy to answer them. I can't tell to my 4 year old daughter how she came out of this world precisely and accurately! Lol. Instead, I told her "Daddy and Mommy prayed to God to give us a very beautiful daughter and then GOD hear our prayers and so you came out of this world." When Chichi was still 2 years old, I've been telling her stories that she came from mommy's tummy. And when she was still inside my womb I'm telling her that she's kicking me inside whenever I talked to her and when mommy sings to her. And when she was born we became so happy and our lives became more joyful than ever. But now, she's starting to ask too many questions, I still tell her the same story, over and over again. I want her to feel…

Overflowing BOOZE at the 15th Grand Wine Experience on November 13th at the Marriott Hotel Manila

I am very adventurous with food and even alcoholic drinks - cocktails, beer and wine. I have been trying different cocktail drinks since 2008 and I love anything with vodka and whisky. First time I had a beer when I was in Junior High and first to try a red wine when I was in college, however, I find the wine to be intimidating. Because of the rules of what not to do with wines and pretty much the basic Wine 101. I tried cooking with white wine with soups, but very rare to pair it while dining. But during the press launch of the 15th Wine Grand Experience at the Marriott Hotel Manila, I was able to dine and appreciate my meal while pairing it with red and white wines. It's my second time to experience a wine pairing event and that didn't disappoint me.

A wine’s vintage speaks of more than just the year of harvest. It is, in essence, the headline of an article, the name of a painting, the title of a novel; one that alludes to a period of romance between the sun, rai…

Afternoon cravings at Street Shack BF Aguirre
