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

Image
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 have been on blogging hiatus for the past 2 weeks since we moved to Bacolod. The trip actually took us two days since we traveled by land and RORO. It was such a beautiful trip since we were able to visit a lot of provinces and spent a night in Kalibo. Will definitely blog and share to you magnificent sunset photos we have.  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

Image
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 antib

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

Image
Val and I both l ove 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 th
