5 Takeaways from Taste The Legend Tour with Carlos Celdran and Lido Cocina Tsina

Did you know that Binondo is the world’s oldest Chinatown? I used to frequent Binondo back when I was still staying in Manila, and it was only two weeks ago that I realized I know very little about its origin!

Every brekkie (breakfast junkie lol!) has probably caught wind of the newly opened Sunnies Cafe at BGC High Street. It’s an extension of the Sunnies Studios lifestyle concept, the same brand that has brought us them chic and affordable sunnies we all love. So one afternoon, after observing due diligence and doing my research on what to order, I headed over to Sunnies Cafe to see if the hype is real.

Some of the things I knew from research:

  • During the time of our visit, they had an ongoing pro...

Innisfree’s lipsticks were one of the makeup items on Althea that quickly caught my attention. It has garnered a high rating of 4.5 stars on the shopping platform, and looks extremely classy to boot! During my first Althea Korea haul in January, I ordered Innisfree’s Creammellow Lipstick in Latte Brown and tested it for months before I finally got the chance to write down my thoughts on this item.

REVIEW: Organique Acai Premium Blend

organique acai berry juice drink philippines review

I was completely unfamiliar with Acai Berry until two months ago when a fellow blogger introduced the drink to me. Upon finding out that one bottle of Organique Acai costs Php 2500 in Watsons and Mercury Drug outlets, I was shocked and have psyched myself to expect that I won’t like it to much (When a drink is THAT expensive, trust me, you don’t want to like it. It’s going to burn a hole through your wallet...

Starbucks Beverages of 2016

I try every new Starbucks beverages at least once, and I have to say that my favorite so far this year is the Summer Berry Panna Cotta, which they took out from their menu TOO SOON! :(  It was introduced with the Roasted Marshmallow S’mores beverage, which we didn’t like as much because of its overwhelmingly sweet flavor. The great thing about Starbucks is that if you don’t like your drink, they will happily fix it or replace it with something else.

Starbucks Summer Berry Panna Cotta and Roast...

Discovering Cookie Shots at Cookie Bar Manila (The Podium, Mandaluyong)

The concept of Cookie shots is not new — in fact, I’ve seen it years ago circulating on Facebook, with coffee and a cute little handle to boot. However, I have not found an establishment that sells cookie shots or cookie cups until last month, when we were aimlessly walking around The Podium, and encountered Cookie Bar Manila. I’ve been looking for cookie shots in manila for a looong time, but I must have not been looking hard enough to only find out about it a bit later than most people did!
