Last week, I was invited to Dipscover Perfect Pairing  Possibilities with Lady's Choice.

The campaign is Real Love is Lady's Choice: Creating Perfect Pairs.

ladys choice mydipscovery
Chef Fernando Aracama was the special guest who showed us three innovative dips made with Lady's Choice Real Mayonnaise.  According to Chef Aracama, he has used dips as a way of enhancing his dishes.  He even shared that it is a good way to become more competitive especially since the food industry in our country is continuously growing.

Needless to say, we Filipinos love having something on the side to add more flavor and taste to all kinds of food.  Thus, dips and sauces have become a usual part of our culture.

Any dish can look so posh with an extra dip just like this.

I was intrigued that even fruits can go with a dip.

After the demonstration, we all had our  chance to create our very own #MyDipscovery.  My tables mates Chef Rommel of Cafe Lidia & Abet and I made our own dips.

I was able to try this and it was really good.  Too bad chef didn't share with me his recipe.

Abet's Perfect Pair
Kuya Abet had the best presentation don't you think?  But, he only gave this plate to me after he made it.

I think my dip is good with any fried or grilled dish.  My dip has Italian parsley, red tomato sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic oil and of course, Lady's Choice Real Mayonnaise

Miss Earth Philippines 2017 Candidates Visits Yoshinoya Glorietta

| Read more...
If you ask me what my favorite fast food chain is, no doubt it is Yoshinoya.  Not only do they serve the best beef bowls since 1899 (at the Nihonbashi Fish Market in Tokyo), they also support good causes such as the Miss Earth Philippines Campaign

yoshinoya miss earth glorietta
Just like the previous years, Yoshinoya welcomes Miss Earth Philippines Candidates to visit its branch.  I had the chance to meet and greet them at the  Yoshinoya Glorietta Branch.

The Miss Earth Philippines 2017 Candidates are young but their ideas on how to save our environment is big and impactful.  When I was at that age, I am ashamed to say that all I cared for was fun and games.  Thus, the Miss Earth Philippines is really an effective environmental awareness initiative because with so many things going on in our lives, we tend to forget what matters the most - to take care of our environment.  I hope you get to visit Yoshinoya during the Miss Earth Philippines 2017 because they speak with their ideals with so much passion that I find it moving.  I really hope that their plans will succeed.  Indeed, they have the youth, wisdom, beauty and dedication to set them in action.  I truly believe that if all of us would just open our eyes, care and be involved, we can do anything.  Yoshinoya and Miss Earth Philippines is a match that sparks our awareness, I hope we also do our part to support.

I also discovered that Yoshinoya now has a new menu item called Beef Stew.  It's a good alternative to their Beef Gyudon if you prefer to have chunky and savory beef cubes.

Thanks Yoshinoya for an affordable and satisfying meal.  This full-course Japanese meal fits my everyday budget!

Perfect Gift for a Crowning Glory to the Queen of My Life

| Read more...
If there is one woman who I should be thanking my life for, it would be my one and only mom.  From the time when I had to develop from her womb until now, she gave me more than what I needed and tried to give me more than she could.

While many would say that mothers are born with maternal instinct, still she could have given less and yet she gave me the very best.  During our tender and nurturing years, I have witnessed my mom giving us all her utmost care and attention to us.  She didn't bother to address her wants.  I knew how much she has given up for us.  She was the dancing diva, the prom queen and the party girl who always gained the spotlight.  But, as soon as we entered the scene, she gladly paved way.

Now that Mother's Day is approaching, it has become a challenge to find a gift fitting for the queen of my life.  Knowing my mom, she'll be glad with any kind of surprise.  But, still I want to give her the very best.  Certainly, there are many choices... choices that money can easily buy but their benefit for my mom will vary.

This year, I will give her something more... more than material thing she can use or wear.  And, yet make her feel so special and beautiful.  I shall give her a healthy package of NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack which includes the topical scalp lotion, herbal shampoo and conditioner.  It will remind her of the days when she used to hold my head so gently on our little pink plastic tub as she shampoos my few strands of her.  Now, I can massage her scalp after she takes a shower with the topical scalp lotion.

NOVUHAIR Topical Scalp Lotion is so unique that it combines 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients––all working synergistically to help address hair problems from growth to vanishing. This breakthrough product helps to rejuvenate, nourish and maintain the moist of her tress from root to tip, aids in stimulating the growth of her hair and helps prevent it from excessive falling, while improving the overall appearance.  Surely, after each NOVUHAIR, her hair will shine with a crowning glory that is fit for a queen like her.

NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack is beyond compare. So, don’t think twice to wrap it as your present for her this Mother’s Day and, if ever, for life. Head on to any Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores to get a dose of nature’s answer to hair loss.  For inquiries, call 413-6570 or 0922-8830575, and visit www.novuhair.com for more details.
