Chicken Deli growth spurs partnership renewal with Pepsi Philippines

Val is a big chicken  inasal fan. I remember when we were still in Manila, one of our go-to places was the newly opened Chicken Deli branch in Ayala Fairview Terraces. The food is delicious yet very affordable. Not to mention they also serve unlimited rice.  During Val's 30th birthday, we celebrated it with family and friends by enjoying the authentic  Chicken Inasal plus other local favorites such as Kare-Kare and Pork Sisig. Thus, we consider Chicken Deli a significant part of the life of an ordinary Filipino like us.   So, when we arrived in Bacolod in 2015 -- we were actually surprised that this humble family diner is big in the City of Smiles . We had no idea that the restaurant actually originated here in Bacolod and we are very happy and proud of the success of our favorite inasal restaurant.  Now on its 35th year, Chicken Inasal is celebrating a renewed partnership with bottling firm, Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc., (PCPPI) the "Bidang Inasal ng Bac

Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Start Reading Magazines Again

With everything going digital, I can't help but miss the feel and excitement whenever I get a new printed copy of a book or the latest issue of my favorite magazine. I remember spending most of my school allowance on Seventeen, BOP, and Cosmo. The new information and the latest updates and trends that I get from reading was definitely worth every penny.  Unfortunately, when they started creating websites and making all the content available online, I no longer found the reason to grab my favorite magazines. Instead, I just read its digital copies. It was free and convenient.   However this 2018 -- I discovered Southwall Magazine   during its launch in Bacolod last July 17 at the Gallery Orange and I have found all the reasons why I should start my magazine subscription again.  Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Start Reading Magazines Again 1. Southwall Magazine has a great layout with really nice glossy pages. It has the same feel and vibrant pictures that I ha
