My wife just recently turned 41… Yay! “The Dreys” (that’s us!) made sure to celebrate this special occasion by way of a fun and totally spontaneous lunch out at the Araneta Center, Cubao branch of Four Seasons Buffet and Hotpot.
One of the main reasons why we chose this place is because my wife absolutely loves Chinese food. And since I’m not really partial to that kind of cuisine (not that I don’t like it, though), we figured that Four Seasons Buffet and Hotpot would offer the best of both worlds. She gets her Chinese fix and hotpot goodness (plus points for that!) and I get to enjoy the kind of dishes I love like steak, shrimp tempura and sushi!
And since this was a quick afternoon escape that included every single person in the household, that meant Max — out teacup Pomeranian — had to come along, too. Why? Because no one would be able to watch over him at home while we’re out. Unfortunately, the restaurant we were going to doesn’t allow animals inside. So, we decided to drop Max off at Pet Express located just 10 minutes away by foot from Four Seasons Buffet and Hotpot. Pet Express offers boarding services during operating hours. It was the perfect solution. (They only charge Php50 per hour in case you wanna know.)
Guys, honestly… “heart-friendly” is probably the last thing on your mind when you reach for the cooking oil in your kitchen shelf, am I right? It probably isn’t any wonder considering how health buffs give it a bad rap all these years. Well, I guess it’s high time to set the record straight once and for all…
So, while some cooking oils put your cardiovascular health at risk, there are actually others that provide essential good fats that our bodies need. Yup. It’s true! In fact, there are even some cooking oils that reduce your risk of having coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular ailments.
I’ve always wanted to try having my teeth whitened. The thought of having whiter, more attractive teeth is something I have long considered. The only problem is… I’ve also always thought that teeth whitening is a tedious and painstaking procedure. So, I never really bothered to try experiencing this kind of treatment.
But, just recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to try a teeth whitening procedure at a recently opened establishment in Bonifacio Global City called, The Smile Bar.
I really didn’t know what to expect. And up until the moment that I was about to be treated, all kinds of questions were running through my head like… Was it going to take hours? Will it hurt? Would it be an unpleasant experience?
All my questions would soon be answered as I entered the friendly premises of The Smile Bar. I was greeted with warm hellos and lots of smiles — shiny white beaming smiles, in fact! There’s just something about a radiant smile that draws you in, wouldn’t you agree?
In no time, I was led into their treatment area and I was well on my way to having shinier pearly whites. Exciting!
Hey! Hey! I recently attended the E! Bloggers Ball 2017 which was held at City of Dreams Manila last September 16, 2017. I had an incredible time celebrating with fellow bloggers and influencers in the Philippine online scene.
I made sure to look my spiffiest. Haha!
It’s that time of the year again. 917 Day! And as a loyal Globe user for as far back as I can remember, this special annual occasion is something I look forward to everytime.
Friends and family know how paranoid I get concerning low battery problems on my smartphone, including my other gadgets. That pretty much explains why I carry a ton of power banks in my sling bag every single time I’m away from home. A ton of power banks is in no way an exaggeration. On any […]
Looking for a device that can keep up with your everyday activities but can’t quite decide between a tablet or a laptop? Get both! No. I don’t mean for you to get two separate devices. I meant get both! Still confused? Hahaha! Ok… ok. Get a device that performs perfectly as a tablet and a […]
The little speaker that could. That’s how I would probably describe the Carbon Audio Pocket Speaker. You’d think that something that can easily fit inside your shirt pocket cannot possibly produce sound so rich and full. Not to mention, loud. You’ll notice immediately when you open the Carbon Audio Pocket Speaker that its design is […]

I may not be a fan of Kimchi and other Korean dishes that consists of a variety of vegetables, but one thing I definitely go crazy over is Korean BBQ. When I visited South Korea back in late 2015, I would always look forward to our next Korean BBQ meal. Anyone who has tried authentic […]

It’s one of those special places that just captures […]

A celebration of American optimism through a wonderful selection of Beringer wines was held at the M Cafe in Makati to the delight of sommeliers and guests.
Had an amazing time earlier at a fairly known restaurant located at the corner of Dela Rosa and Perea St. in Makati City called, Piggy Wiggy. Together with me earlier this afternoon were my wife, Ronnie Henares (my manager), Ida Henares (Tito Ronnie’s amazing wife), Matt Henares (Tito Ronnie and Tita Ida’s son), Roy del […]
Had a quick informal meeting at Burger Company the other night just after my circuit training session at the gym. I figured I could use a good amount of protein right after a grueling “Ultimate Spartacus” workout. I’ve tasted Burger Company‘s amazing burgers before but only thru delivery and take out. It was the first […]
One of the best ways to create wonderful family bonding moments on a regular basis is by encouraging family members to enjoy the activities you love doing. It doesn’t matter what kind of activity so long as it is wholesome and everyone can get in on the fun. Biking, dining out, movies, game boards, whatever… […]
Did some interval training last night. It was a combination of chest and bicep exercises combined with a minute of intense cardio (stationary bike on this occasion) in between each set. This particular evening, I added more weight to my chest presses. I also mixed up bar and dumbbell combinations for bulk and definition. I […]
I’ve always believed that the measure of one’s success is staying power. That could not be any more evident and truer than with AirAsia’s continuous rise, not to mention the recognition they constantly receive. Just today, AirAsia is once again the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline. An award they have received for the ninth year in […]

Boracay is one of the most visited islands in the Philippines. It is pretty much the go-to destination for locals and tourists alike not just for summer but all year round. And with good reason. Just recently, Boracay has once again been named Conde Nast’s, “World’s Best Island”, which isn’t really any surprise to anyone […]
My wife keeps telling me that I look silly almost every night falling asleep while tinkering with my smartphone. Either, tweeting, editing photos, or playing games in a comfortable position always leaves me feeling sleepy… and more often than not, I end up dozing off. During a taping of my teleserye (“Magdalena”) last week, some […]
It’s hard to explain how one can play with a toy and be scared of it at the same time. Ngayon lang ako nakakita ng taong kinikilabutan sa sariling laruan. Panoorin niyo maglaro ng puppet si Marie Aileen Regina Dreyfus habang sabay na kinikilabutan siya. Hahaha! Ang labo! LOL! :)) Enjoy the short video below…
After quite a while (more than a year, I think), my wife suddenly had the urge to run outside and do some cardio. It amused me so much that I decided to tag along and record her short sprint around the block on video. Guess what I did with the video clips I recorded… I […]
