The fun-filled event included a live cooking demonstration by Chef Mcrhyan Rodrigo who showed how easy it was to turn an ordinary kangkong into Ginisarsayang Kangkong with Tokwa using Sarsaya Oyster Sauce.

Event: Taco Bell introduces The Cheesy Core Burrito by Gracie Espiel

This is the cheesiest a burrito has been. Taco Bell presents its latest product – The Cheesy Core Burrito. I joined fellow bloggers in experiencing its cheesy goodness last Thursday at Cyberpark Tower.
The cheese lover in me surely loved The Cheesy Core Burrito as it is the first burrito which has a melted cheese center.
I loved its “core” of red nacho strips smothered with Taco Bell’s three cheese blend and nacho cheese sauce wrapped in a flour tortilla. Aside from its core, the burrito is also made delicious by seasoned beef, sour cream and Mexican rice. 
The Cheesy Core Burrito is also perfect to eat with nachos. Get cheesy to the core when you try The Cheesy Core Burrito next time you go to Taco Bell branches at Gateway, Alabang Town Center, Cyberpark Tower and Trinoma. For more information, visit or follow their official Facebook page at

Event: Homegrown brew Bo's Coffee opens in SM Light Mandaluyong and Fairview Terraces

Homegrown brew is something we should patronize as a Filipino. On its 89th branch, Bo's Coffee opened its newest branches in SM Light Mandaluyong and Fairview Terraces Quezon City last Friday and Saturday. I joined fellow bloggers indulging in coffee appreciation how to make pour-over coffee from the different mountains of the country at Bo's Coffee Fairview Terraces last Saturday. 
Located at the Upper Ground Floor in the middle of shops, Bo's Coffee Fairview Terraces is one stop for a quick perk-up fix boasting its very own signature blends from the mountains of Kitanglad, Benguet, Mt.Apo, Sagada and Matutum with products supporting the country's very own produce like pastries and cakes. We had a sample of their sandwiches and that delicious Supermoist Chocolate Cake (P85/slice).
Hosted by Erin, the event featured how to better create a perfect brew of pour-over similar to French Press to savor the hints of ingredients from the aroma and taste of the coffee. I loved their Matutum which can also be done as cold brew.
