Ramen Daisho Now Open at Assembly Grounds Makati and with 50% Off on Ramens!

I don’t how many times I’ve said how much I love Japanese food and it’s on top of my fave cuisines ever. I actually like almost all Japanese dishes that I’ve tried since I was introduced to this said cuisine. My most vivid recollection of me eating Japanese food was when I was in third grade. My mumma used to work for an international trading company in one of the buildings in Rada Street, Legaspi Village in Makati.




When it was just me and my little sister, during weekends we would go with our mumma to where she works half day during Saturdays. After which we will eat at this known Japanese restaurant just outside Greenbelt which is now occupied by Mc Donald’s. That restaurant used to be a mid-ranged Japanese resto but now has “downgraded” into a Japanese fast food chain to somehow reach a wider scope of clienteles. But thanks to that brand, I got to appreciate Japanese cuisine and its art form.

Artisan Ice Cream by Merry Moo

Don’t you find it puzzling that just when technology is advancing in such a fast pace, where in the world we live in we are always glued to our phones, where life gets chaotic, some just wants to take a step back and live in the past, the old school ways. But living less, simpler, how they did it in the old days, without all the hustle and bustle is more. Yes, it’s true that less is more, in that matter. But more of it, more of all the simpler ways incorporated into our lifestyle is better, and that’s a fact.




There are times that going old school can be bad and sometimes good. After all, we can’t have it both ways. But for this post let me talk about one of the good things of going back to simpler ways. Like when it comes to food, I don’t know if this is because the propagation of the hipster generation brought about by millennials, but somehow, most of us, if not all, went back to going vintage. There’s something about its simplicity and stylishness that we yearn. Nostalgia perhaps. With this, we saw the rise of everything artisan.

Vitamins & Nutrients for Healthy and Beautiful Skin

Unavoidable factors like age, the environment, and stress can cause the skin to become thinner and hence prone to wrinkling, broken capillaries, and brown spots. In addition, there are plenty of other factors that can throw off the balance of minerals and vitamins in our bodies that are essential for our skin's health. Unlike the former group of factors, the latter is something that can be easily addressed – below we’ve listed some of the top vitamins and minerals you need for healthy and young-looking skin as well as ways to incorporate them into your daily diet!




1. Vitamin D
Vitamin D plays an important role in fighting infections, and as a result, a deficiency in this vitamin is closely linked to acne. The so-called "sunshine vitamin" is both vital and fatal for your skin's health. Let's make this clear – enough sun (read: vitamin D) is good for your skin, but too much sun (read: harmful UV rays) can be detrimental for your skin's health. So maybe instead of sweating in the sun longer than you should, look for other natural sources of vitamin D in foods, such as mushrooms, fish, and eggs. Besides, it's super-easy to start your day with a delicious and skin-vitamin-rich breakfast, since most milk and breakfast cereals are fortified with vitamin D. Besides fortified products, you can consider taking vitamin D supplements to accelerate the process of healing and getting your skin to glow.

Dresslily.com Haul # 5 + Review

It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas! While I’m writing this haul review it’s officially 75 days before Christmas day and as early as now you can already feel that the holiday season is fast approaching. In our street, households are slowly being decorated with festive ornaments and lights. Just a few days ago, a giant Christmas tree was put up in my office building’s lobby, and you know what? That made me all giddy because this is one of my favorite seasons besides summer.

 


Another reason for my high spirits is that as early as now, I am receiving so many things in the mail lately and I feel like these are holiday gifts, though they are mostly promotional items. Almost every few days I get a notification from a delivery man or one of my family members that something has arrived for and that really puts me in a festive mood. I wish I take shoot and write a review of everything in time for the holidays or before this year ends. But let start with the recent haul that I did with Dresslily.

% Arabica Coffee: See The World Through Coffee

Are you someone who can’t start his/her day without having a fix of caffeine? Well, I am just like that. I can’t start my day without having a cup of coffee, or two. I mean, please don’t talk to me until I have engulfed reasonable amounts of caffeine because my brain won’t function until then. Coffee is the fuel of my soul, it’s what’s keep running all throughout the night (I work night shift). And don’t you just love that the first smell you inhale after getting out of bed is the aroma of coffee? Moreover, the bitterness or sweetness (depends on the type of coffee that you drink) gives you that sudden kick that will catapult you getting your body moving and going.




For when times that I don’t have time to enjoy a cup of joe before I leave home for work or I ran out of stash of coffee (which both rarely happens), the moment I step at work, after clocking in, I hurriedly get my fix. Sounds funny, but seriously, I crave for it, it seems like I’m having a withdrawal if I don’t drink it after an hour or so after I wake up. It’s really like a drug, it’s addictive but not bad for you. But yeah too much of it can cause you hyperacidity and what-nots, but not as bad as real drugs that can make you go crazy and kill you.

Asian Taste Seafood Restaurant at Seascape Village

Asia, being the largest and most populous continent, has many great cuisines. But how do you decide which Asian nation produces the best cuisine? But taste will always be subjective right? Someone may love Taiwan’s stinky tofu while I had a hard time appreciating it even if I am a tofu lover. Some people may also not appreciate seafood where it is abundant in Oriental and South East Asia. I may be allergic to seafood, but I love eating them, whenever I have the chance; yet I know a couple of people who doesn’t like them any bit, even fish they hate.




What I love about oriental and SE Asian food is that it highly resembles the Filipino cuisine and greatly appeals to the Filipino palate, well after all, even in ancient times, even before the colonization and industrial from the West ever happened, the Philippines is already trading with its neighboring countries and cultures and that heavily included food and spices. If you’re going to ask me, my top Asian cuisines would be Japanese, Chinese and Filipino (of course!).

Help Your Children Learn Good Values

As parents, we are often faced with the question of when to start teaching our children about values that they should imbibe in their lives. What is the correct age to start? A child’s brain is like a sponge. It will absorb everything that it senses. Children in their formative years look to their parents, observe the behavior that parents exhibit and try to copy them.




By the age of 5 children start seeing their parents as role models and also start differentiating between good and bad; and wrong and right. The best way to teach your children values is to set examples for them to follow. You need to spend quality time with your children if you want them to learn from you. Given below is a list of 5 important values that every child should learn and make a part of their lives.

SNOE Beauty Inc.'s NEW Glam Jam Lip & Cheek Tints!

I love makeup and I couldn’t care less what people think about me wearing makeup or no make. If you prefer natural beauty, well that’s great, if you like someone who’s all dolled up, that’s great too. I won’t ever run a poll on what people prefer me to look, I enjoy makeup and most times I do in fact feel better about myself wearing them. I don’t put on makeup for anyone else but myself. 




During my first year in college I got easily acquainted with girls in my class who are kikay and they are the ones who introduced me to the world of makeup. As years go by, I started getting more interested in it and explored more on this area. I even attended some makeup workshops to learn more. Although I didn’t take it to the next level but did it for myself and do makeup of friends and families for events or special occasions.

Top 4 Skincare Recommendations for Middle-Aged Women

Whereas age is usually a taboo topic for most aging women, when it comes to skincare, it shouldn't be. As women touch 40, their skin typically becomes more sensitive and drier, re-quiring more attention and care than it used to before. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can protect your skin from aging and various possible problems and diseases, and keep its natural beauty well into middle age as well. Take note of the tips we shared below and pro-vide your skin the care it needs and deserves.




1. Sun protection
Before we start with all the negative effects of tanning, let's make it clear that we don't blame you – everything looks better with a little extra color. However, as much as it seems impossi-ble to resist the lovely warmth on your skin and the thought of the golden tan, for the sake of our health and beauty, there are things to take into consideration before faking or baking your tan. We hate to break it to you, but the answer to the question of how much sun is enough is approximately 15 minutes a day!

Buffalo Swing Cafe - Pasig City's Hidden Gem

I was born and raised in Pasig, a true blooded Batang Pasig. I love my hometown, I’ve lived somewhere for a couple of years due to work but being away from family was hard, so I decided to go live near them again. They say Pasig has the worst traffic jams at the moment, but I guess one just needs to get used to it, also that it won’t get better anytime soon. I don’t care, because nothing beats being “home”.




Another thing that I love about my hometown is that you can easily go to just anywhere around Metro Manila because like Mandaluyong it’s at the center (well, almost). Want nature? Travel a few hours to Rizal. Want some city life fix? Travel a few hours to BGC, Makati, Mandaluyong, San Juan or Quezon City. Moreover, this city also never ceases to surprise me with its hidden gems, including gastronomic finds.
