Le Cellier Wine Dinner At Pan Pacific Manila

Last October 23, Le Cellier hosted a Wine Pairing Dinner for special friends at the Sky Lounge of Pan Pacific Manila in Adriatico, Manila.

If you are familiar with the area, this is Manila's touristy place as it is just near Intramuros, Fort Santiago and Rizal Park. At night, the area is filled with light and music.

FOOD FINDS: Vita Coco

We love drinking coconut water at home because it is not only beneficial for the health but refreshing as well.

And because fresh coconut is not always available for city dwellers like us, there's the endless search for it.




Vita Coco is barely 5 months in the market but I see great potential. It tastes like real coconut water. Very refreshing and energizing. Costs around P35 per pack and available in Landmark and Rustan's supermarket.

I highly recommend this drink to city dwellers who doesn't have the means to get their fix of fresh buko juice.

FOOD FINDS: Ortega's Skineless Longganisa

Hubby had a client call in Baliuag, Bulacan last week and brought this for me as well as a pack of chicharon. The chicharon didn't leave a lasting impression but this longganisa did.

PRESS RELEASE:

The United Kingdom is not only synonymous with royalty, the Beatles, the famous London Bridge, The Queen, but a whole lot more.

Food is also another example of British invasion around the world: ever heard of brunch (breakfast and lunch), fish and chips, high tea, and of course, biscuits.

CEBU: Dessert Factory

If there's one restaurant in Cebu that I won't tire of visiting again and again, it would be Dessert Factory in Ayala Mall. It was during our 2007 trip to Cebu when my friend introduced me to this restaurant. And the cake I ate that time was so memorable that I vowed to visit this restaurant if ever I happen to go to Cebu again.
