They say that you can experience a lot and learn one’s culture by trying out the distinct flavors of a country’s own food.
I absolutely agree. During my various travels in and out of the country, I make it a point to really try out the traditional dishes of any particular place. It is part of my immersion process.
That’s the very reason why when you chance upon a restaurant that serves flavorful authentic cuisine it somehow feels like you’re transported to that particular place.
There are a good number of these places in and around the metro. You just have to know where to find them. One of these restaurants happen to be Wee Nam Kee and their wonderful new dishes during their limited time offer called the United Flavors of Singapore.
Storage, storage, storage. It’s one thing that we gadget geeks can never get enough of. Well, that and battery power of course.
Here’s the thing folks… as our devices get better and better and as the cameras of our smartphones are constantly upgraded with better sensors and higher megapixel capabilities, the file sizes of our photos and videos naturally get bigger. There’s no problem with that. By all means, anything better is always welcome. The dilemma lies in our device’s storage space. Storage has to keep up with the pace of how fast our hardware is improving.
Expandable memories such as Micro SD Cards are great but they slow down the performance of devices to a certain degree which is somewhat of a bummer. This is one of the reasons why a good number of smartphone and tablet manufacturers (like Apple) opt to take the built-in storage route instead.
If you’re one who enjoys photography, listening to offline music and dabbles in a lot of videography, storage limitation could prove to be a huge problem. Backing up and transferring media files can be quite a headache. It’s tedious and very tiring.
If you find yourself nodding and agreeing to some of the things I’m talking about right now, then what I’m about to introduce to you may well be considered a lifesaver.
I noticed that there has been so much talk as of late about Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour in Manila. Unfortunately, some of these conversations have been about the event’s ticket prices which some consider to be quite expensive.
A lot of bloggers, as if in perfect sync and seeming orchestration, have suddenly published posts that suspiciously have the same tone and the same question. These individuals have been asking, “What’s so wonderful about spending Php 60,000.00 for a concert?”, followed by a call for people to join a particular promo instead, with the possibility to watch Madonna for free. The ploy it seems is to convince readers to believe that theirs is “the better choice”.
But, my question is… is it REALLY the better choice?
Let’s break it down for a second and see if what they say truly holds water.
I’ve always been an advocate of good health. Whenever there’s an opportunity to share valuable health tips with my readers, I jump on it.
I am very careful when it comes to supplements and the kind of vitamins I put inside my body. Hey, you only have yourself to blame in the long run if you aren’t cautious, right?
Recently, I learned more about a particular superfood that I’ve long been aware of. The superfood I am referring to is the Acai Berry. You may or may have not heard of Acai berries and the wonderful things it can do to your health. But for the benefit of those who aren’t aware of it, allow me to tell you more about these incredible fruits.
Acai (pronounced “ah-sah-ee”), is the tallest palm tree in the Amazon jungle and can grow as high as 80 feet. These palm trees produce small berries that are colored dark purple and are normally harvested from the Belem region of Para – a place in Brazil where the best of these little fruits are produced.
You’re probably curious as to why these Acai berries are considered a superfood. Well, that’s because these amazing fruits contain 10x the antioxidants found in red grapes and blueberries. Yes… 10x more.
Weddings are wonderful occasions. They are celebrations of love and professions of faith and trust.
It is just but right to give one of the most joyous moments of our lives a fitting celebration… one that we can share with friends and family. But, planning such an event can prove to be quite a challenge.
If you or any of your loved ones are planning to tie the knot anytime soon, know that there are better ways to make that big day a whole lot more memorable and less stressful. I’m talking about The Aristocrat Wedding Showcase.
Who doesn’t know about The Aristocrat? You’ve got to be hiding under a rock not to be familiar with this famous chain of restaurants. As far back as I can remember, The Aristocrat has been one of the most popular and go-to establishments in the metro for get-togethers and various celebrations because of their top notch service and delicious food.

My wife and I were invited to attend a food tasting event at Mercato Centrale at Bonifacio Global City earlier today. The event was called “The Next Big Food Entrepreneur”. The were 64 different kinds of food concessionaires handing out free samples of their offerings. And by no means were their samples in small portions! […]
I love eating. It probably may not seem physically evident now after dropping 50lbs a couple of years back but I still do. I love good food. Who doesn’t? And every chance I get to try new food spots, I immediately grab the opportunity. I guess you could also chalk it up to having a […]

Last May 28, 2013, the first gathering ever for members of Globe Community was held at SKYE Lounge at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The meetup was the perfect opportunity for people in Globe Community to actually meet other members in person and to bond with one another.
