What's New? Apo ni Lola's Durian Pie

There is no doubt that I love Apo ni Lola Durian Delicacies. Aside from a wonderful customer experience whenever I visit their store in Matina, their products are definitely the best durian pasalubong you can ever find. 

That is why they truly deserve their latest award from the Golden Globe Annual Awards as the Best Durian Pasalubong Treats Provider. One of their secrets to the success is constant innovation. Their product line has grown from durian candies to ice cream, preserves and now pastries. 

The Apo ni Lola Durian Pie is something durian lovers would surely enjoy. Its crust is just perfectly baked and the creamy filling will surely ease up your durian craving. It is so creamy and delicious. Definitely, a must-have pasalubong and I guarantee that it is worth every peso you spent on it. 

So, what are you waiting for? Visit Apo ni Lola Durian Delicacies and grab the durian pie as a pasalubong, snack or dessert.

I will post the winner for the May Celebrants Giveaway on the first week of June. Giveaway will run until the end of the month. 

For now, let me announce the winner for the Stronghand Giveaway. 

Congratulations, Kim Allorde. Kindly send me a PM in facebook with your shipping details and contact number.

No More Mosquitoes: The Beautiful and Fragrant Way

I hate mosquitoes. Aside from fact that I am concerned about diseases that they bring like dengue fever, getting mosquito bites which is very itchy is also very irritating. Thus, I grew up using mosquito coils (katol) and insect repellants like "off lotion." 

With attempts to go natural and organic, I am happy to find out about the natural repellants that we can use. 

1. Citronella - This is the most common of all. It is actually from a grass variety and it features a clean, outdoorsy scent. My mom usually buys citronella scented candles. 

2. Lavender - My favorite scent and commonly used in aromatherapy. We can actually grow these plants at home and can double as a decoration. 

3. Eucalyptus - It features a fresh and minty scent commonly used in oils. It is also known to treat colds and flu. 

4. Lemongrass - This is a fresh and sweet smelling scent that is highly effective in warding away mosquitoes. It is also known for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. 

So, before the rainy season begins, please make sure that you find the right mosquito repellant for you and your family. Remember that our fight against them do not end by spraying on our bodies but we can also use the repellants in our home in a beautiful and fragrant way.

Sakura Season at Tokyo Bubble Tea : Cute, Delicious and the Perfect Fusion

Val and I both love to eat out however, we actually do not agree much on food choices. I am a fan of pasta, sweets and steaks while Val, on the other hand loves Japanese and Mexican cuisines.

So, can you imagine our delight when visited Tokyo Bubble Tea and saw their amazing menu?! It was a perfect place for us because both our favorites are available plus it's Sakura Season. 

For appetizers, you can choose from their Tokyo Side Treats, Salads and Maki Zuchi selection. 

We had Takoyaki which is an absolute favorite from their menu. It is super yummy and not the typical takoyaki that we can buy from malls that is just filled with vegetables. Tokyo Bubble Tea's version is a real one. Takoyaki literally stands for "octopus in batter." 

Takoyaki - Php 178 (8 pieces)

Tofu Steak is a must try especially for those who are health conscious. :) 

Tofu Steak - Php 158

Tuna Sashimi is really fresh and delicious though we are going to try the Salmon Sashimi next time. 
Tuna Sashimi - Php 160
The Bulgogi Nachos is a sure treat to be available in a place that specializes in Japanese cuisine. It's the perfect pica-pica and Val was so happy because we all know he is a nachos addict.  

Bulgogi Nachos - Php 245

But since it's Sakura Season in Tokyo Bubble Tea and they want people to experience Hanami and see the cherry blossoms, a visit wouldn't be complete without the Sakura JCC Milk Teas. They have Sakura Royal Milk Tea (highly recommended!), Sakura Strawberry Milk Tea and Sakura Taro Milk Tea. 

Sakura Royal Milk Tea - 125 (Large)
What's special about these milk teas is the Sakura Spin on the typical Tokyo Bubble Tea and the Japanese Cheesecake Cream (JCC) which is a sweet and smooth topping that gives these drinks an extra zing. 

Ofcourse, it's not all about milk teas and appetizers. If you are hungry, the Sakura Bento Trays can satisfy your rumbling bellies. You can choose to have Sakura Soy Ginger Fish, Sakura Chicken Katsu and Sakura Ebi Furai with Hamburg. Each tray comes with a main course, miso soup, fried rice, Sakura salad and Sakura maki. 

Sakura Soy Ginger Fish - Php 328

Sakura Chicken Katsu - Php 368

Sakura Ebi Furai with Hamburg - Php 388
If I were to describe the Sakura Tray, I would say everything is delicious. The salad,fried rice, maki and soup are perfect together with your choice of main course. 

And since I love sweets, our meal wouldn't be complete without dessert. I love that Honeybon Pastries are available in Tokyo Bubble Tea. They have a wide selection of really yummy cakes. 

So, go ahead and have the cutest, most kawaii and definitely yummy Hanami experience at Tokyo Bubble Tea. Whether you are in for a light snack, full meal or simply craving for sweets and milk tea then, Tokyo Bubble Tea is the perfect place to visit. 

Don't forget that their Sakura Season menu is only available for a limited time and they have an ongoing promotion for customers who mix and match these Sakura drinks and trays. One can pick a prize from their special sakura tree and can win exclusive Tokyo Bubble Tea merchandise featuring Bubblets: Sakura, Midori and Ichiban.
