I actually live just a stone’s throw away from the grocery store… and yet, when the usual time comes when we need to do our grocery shopping, I find myself dragging my butt to leave the house. Why? Because the horrible traffic, unruly jeepneys, jaywalkers and motorcycles make getting to the grocery seem like an eternity. And it gets even worse when it rains!
Thank God, nowadays, almost anything can be accessed through our smartphones. From emails and breaking news, to laundry and grocery shopping, everything is conveniently just a few taps away. We no longer have to waste a considerable amount of our lives sitting through road rage inducing traffic and waiting in lines to accomplish mundane errands.

I love competitive sports. It’s something that has always been a part of my life ever since I was a kid. Perhaps many of the reasons why I am who I am now is because of the many values I have learned by engaging in sports. Values such as determination, persistence and motivation.
That’s why when I had kids of my own, I made sure they would develop a deep love for sports as well. Until now, I encourage them every chance I get. Of course, it goes without saying that the physical aspect of sports has its health benefits as well.
For the longest time, I’ve been trying to find the perfect type of sport that we can engage in together. Something that we would enjoy participating in and become one of our best ways to bond as a family.
I believe I may have found just the thing.
This leads me to the real topic of this blog post… Read more
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 […]
The MyPhone Infinity is here. It’s sleek. It’s sexy. And it looks nothing like those cheesy plastic-ish local phones we’ve grown accustomed to seeing being sold all over. In fact, the MyPhone Infinity’s design and form factor kind of resembles a larger iPhone 5. Anyone who’s held this phone in their hands and have seen […]

Love sinigang as much as I do? Well, prepare your palates for these two special sinigang dishes which I featured on GMA-7’s Pinoy MD. A classic, reinvented!
Guys, it’s that time of the year once again when we recognize and vote for our favorite restaurants, food establishments and gastronomic bets. The Choice 2017 is upon us.

I love food because it evokes all sorts of emotions. Different flavors allow us to experience a variety of feelings and even nostalgia. I always look forward to trying out all kinds of dishes, old, new… and yes, even reinvented ones. That’s why heading to the Joy Ride! by NutriAsia food truck was something I […]

Our wonderful friends from Golden Phoenix Hotel Manila recently lit up their beautiful and festive Christmas tree to officially mark the start of the holiday season. The annual lighting of this 10-foot tall Christmas tree which is situated right at the center of the hotel’s lobby was decorated with beautiful green, red and white holiday […]
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.

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 […]
It’s sad that I have to write yet another rant on my blog about SkyCable’s internet service – SkyBroadband. I am trying to bite my tongue so to speak, as I’m clacking away on my keyboard, trying to find less offensive words to say. I’ll just keep this short and sweet brief because I might […]

My wife and I always have tons of fun whenever we decide to have food delivered to our place. No. Not because of the food… but because of the spelling of our names on receipts which the establishment’s order-taker most oftenly mishears. The result? Hilariously outrageous mispellings that sometimes seem like names of totally different […]
