Kebomb: Pocket-Friendly Mediterranean Cuisine Delivered Straight to Your Doorstep

When this community quarantine started, I was pretty apprehensive about almost everything. I had mixed emotions. I was sad and worried of the situation of everyone around the world, especially those who I love. I was happy glad to be home, to have so much time in my hand. Being home means I will get to eat home-cooked meals all day everyday.

But then there are days, I crave for food that we can cook at home, like Japanese and Mediterranean food – which are two of my top favorite cuisines. I am extremely glad that restaurants are still up and running and doing home deliveries. So when one day, my mom had to leave to check out her business in Antipolo (we were on GCQ at this point), and my brothers were being lazy and didn’t want to cook, I decided to order food online.

Qualitea - Quality Milk Tea In Every Cup

Community quarantine or not, it’s a known fact that milk teas have taken a special place in the hearts of Filipinos! I've tried so many milk tea brands since the first time I've tried it. And yes, I have my favorites that are always my go-to milk tea places. But that doesn't mean I'm not open to try other brands. If I could, I would try all the milk tea shops in the whole of Metro Manila

QualiTEA promises to provide milk tea lovers nothing but quality beverages by using quality teas and other ingredients. This ensures that you get value for your money. A few days ago, I got to try what this new milk tea place, QualiTEA, has to offer. Of course, I had delivered to my place via GrabFood. Qualitea has many branches across Metro Manila, and another franchise just opened in Lower Bicutan, Taguig City.

3 Things You Should Know Before You Shop for Designer Bags Online

Buying designer bags online can be a great option if you have a limited selection where you are, are searching for some exclusive model you can’t find anywhere, or if you simply like the convenience it offers. It can also be very tricky, however, with all the counterfeiting happening online, and the scams you open yourself to. However, once you understand the basics of buying luxury clothing and accessories online, you’ll be able to avoid traps and get what you were looking for. Here are a few things you should know before you shop for designer bags online.

Choosing the Right Supplier
This is probably the most important thing before buying anything online. The first thing you want to do is make sure that the supplier is well established. Then, you want to see what people have to say about them online. You also want to privilege suppliers that have physical locations as well. This is because these are much less likely to sell counterfeit clothing, as inspectors would've likely cracked down on them if they had a brick and mortar store.

Grill Your Favorite Pinoy BBQ at Home with Mang Ding’s Ready-to-Grill BBQ Packs!

Everyone was looking forward with excitement with the turn of the decade, the same feeling that we all felt in 2000 because of probably the promise of auspicious year. It felt like it was a reboot,  a jump off point again, a chance to do the things you might have somewhat botched in the past years. That was exactly what I was feeling. I had my plans laid out until half of the year. And then the whole world came to a halt.

I’m sorry, if this is always the start of almost any of my blogpost. But I’m just being realistic here. I don’t want to pretend everything is ok or everything is back to normal again. Because it is not. We are in different times and we have to accept and adapt to this thing called the new normal. With the no sign of hope to flatten the curve of cases of this stupid virus in the Philippines. I suddenly retreated to the shell I kept myself in when the start of the lockdown started. I don’t want to go out of my apartment that often again.

GO BENTO - BGC’s Affordable Everyday Japanese Food Restaurant, Is Now Open for Dine In!

I’ve never imagined in my lifetime that I would experience what we are going through these days. If I am to be very truthful, I am one of those skittish diners in this time of pandemic. I am apprehensive to go out and meet up with my friends. But at the same time, I am honest enough to admit I am experiencing some cabin fever, maybe not as evident with others. Would you believe, I only step out of my apartment every two to three weeks? I sometimes don’t even get any sunshine. 

So, when a good friend of mine, Gel of invited me to join her to visit Go Bento in BGC to check out their Safe Dining set up. I jumped right in! It is my first time to venture out of our village in 5 months! I want to see the outside world, how it is now but also taking precautions. Gel and I wore masks of course and I rode on her car’s backseat, which I usually don’t do as I always ride shotgun with her.
