Pasalubong  in general, is a "gift for a relation or friend brought by" a "traveler returning from a trip"  and could also refer to "anything given as a gift to someone on the way home to a certain place" . It could also mean "homecoming gift" or a present which signifies appreciation to the services rendered by the recipient. 

It is very popular among us, Filipinos. It keeps the bond with friends, family, relatives or someone who does have close relationship with you. The gesture of handing out "pasalubong" conveys that love ones are being remembered while away. 

For me, it is not really the "pasalubong" that matters but an old inspiration who comes back home and let me inspire again. Welcome home, Doremon!!!!

Red Mango Frozen Yogurt

Introduced to me by Peachy who loves froyo more than a Prada bag or LV. Red Mango is the pioneer of all natural frozen yogurt offering perfect escape for today's active, health-conscious consumer ho wants to eat well and look great.

Unlike other desserts, it is all natural, nonfat, and gluten free. It is fun to get creative with delicious and exciting toppings like fresh fruits and fruity pebbles. I chose green tea with kiwi fruit on top, the result is an extremely satisfying, one-of-a kind sensation that is irresistibly delicious and undeniably nutritious.

Red Ribbon's Chocolate Fudge Cake

Comfort food is like a warm embrace. It's a back rub after a hard, long, stressful day. It's a reassuring word. It makes me feel wonderful even with just a taste.  It lifts the spirit. It's food that simply satisfies. All of us have our own list of comfort food, and I'm sure, in your list there is always a chocolate cake. 

Red Ribbon whipped up a version of the classic chocolate cake with its new Chocolate Fudge Cake. This comfort food list-topper is made with its moist chocolate pound cake layered with luscious chocolate fudge filling and then smothered with velvety chocolate icing.

Give in to a slice or two with a cup of brew, freshly steeped tea, or warm glass of milk. It's the kind that will make you savor every bite, scrape off the last bit of crumb and icing on your plate, and then lick the fork clean. Chocolate Fudge Cake can easily get i all Red Ribbon Stores nationwide, available in regular size for Php 460.00 and junior size for only Php 275.00

CuisineKnow - Concoction


1. To prepare by mixing ingredients, as in cooking, using skill or ingenuity.
2. A mixture prepared in such a way. Something made-up. An Invention.
3. A Combination of different ingredients.

Something concocted : I tasted my latest concoction, a mixture of liquor, garlicky, sweet and spicy sausages. A strange but tasteful mixture.

Dampa - True Tastes of Pinoy


We went to Dampa in Macapagal Boulevard near Mall of Asia to celebrate one of my colleagues birthday last Saturday. We choose Dampa because of deliciously fresh, authentic, and affordable seafood.

                                           Buttered Shrimp

It is a one-stop shop to explore Filipino favorites and other Asian Cuisines. If you are craving for Asian cuisine, Im sure you'll be very satisfied here.

  Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso

                                                                                    Charcoal Grilled   Liempo

                                          Ensaladang Manga with Shrimp Paste

 The concept is: buying seafood in the market  and ask the restaurant of your choice to cook it. You may also request to cook it according to your liking. Most of the food will play around Php 100- 350 per kilo price range, expect to pay Php 100-200 /kilo more if you avail the cooking service, depending on the type of seafood and cooking you wish to cook.

                                          Baked Tahong

If you dont like to buy seafood and get wet in the market, just simply pick the yummiest seafood on their menu.

Coffee, Tea and Me - Starbucks' Via

Whatever you call it, for me, it's not just an instant coffee but instant bliss. For just Php 130.00, you can have 3 great cups of coffee anytime you want, anywhere you are. A cup of instant coffee that's rich and full-bodied like their fresh-brewed. It is 100% natural roasted coffee, packaged in a protective atmosphere, microground to release its rich aroma and full flavor.

When you dont have the time, or perhaps the inclination to brew a whole pot - this is perfect for road trips, all-nighters (like me), unexpected guests, groggy housemates, and workaholics.

The watery, bad taste broth of coffee in the office is a pretty sad affair. Forget everything you think you know about ready brew coffee. It tastes as bold and flavorful as any cup of freshly-brewed. It packs up light and helps make any journey a pleasant one. It is good to know that in the face of extraordinary circumstances, you have a bold partner by your side. Just like Via, ready and willing in a matter of seconds, you can count on to go any distance.

Coffee, Tea and Me

Who doesn't like rich, thick, hot, steaming coffee in a lazy, drizzling Friday morning?

Spending time alone is at its best when you have a cup of coffee in your hand and Marlboro lights in the other. I love coffee. I wouldn't pass a day without a doze of caffeine in my system. A brand, time of day,  nor the price doesn't matter to me. i need coffee or tea to keep me going. Most of the time, I sip on a cup of coffee early in the morning while appreciating the goodness of life.

Today I've realized, Life doesn't let you stand still for long, does it? Well that's no reason to leave great coffee and tea behind.
