Be Breville-lized with Breville's Kitchen Appliances

Be Breville-lized with Breville's Kitchen Appliances


Yummy cookies with ice cream!  

I was Breville-lized over the weekend! The amazing cookies above were cooked using a Breville Multi-cooker! Isn't it amazing? Amazing! Yeah!

I had so much fun at the recently held Breville Live Cooking Demo at Wofex 2016 inside the SMX in SM Moa, yes, you're so right that's the one near the Arena!


 Breville Multi-cooker

 This yummy Shrimp Bihon were also cooked using the amazing Breville multi-cooker


How about this?


I arrived just before the cooking demo started so I checked Breville's booth first then sent an SMS to the PR then waited for her to fetch me by the entrance.  Yeah, I gawk at the Breville's booth looking for her then went right back by the entrance door, three burly security guards right on my heel giving me the "dirty look". Ha ha ha! Oh, pretty please, I don't want to pay for the Php200 entrance fee not because I am a cheapskate but because I am invited to cover for the Breville's demo, ha ha ha! Defensive. Okay, I am kuripot.  Thank you. Ha ha ha!


 Breville Stainless Kettle

We love the PR who invited us to this event because they love us so much. They gave us a Breville Kettle plus we got a bottle of water plus a sumptuous "merienda". When you met a PR who's fair & kind like them you have no other choice but to love them back!



After the PR assisted us to our seats my fellow bloggers Ro, Levy, Jherwin and I waited for all the chefs on stage to prepare everything that they needed for their cooking demo at the Kitchen Theater.


Chef Philip John Golding and I

A whole bunch of chefs are on the stage. It is as if you're inside a real kitchen because you get to see all the chefs in action! Everybody was busy slicing meat, cutting vegetables, pre-heating the multi-cooker. It made me realized more than ever that I am not really destined to be a chef. Ha ha ha! I bet their stress levels are up on the roof!



Chef Philip John Golding is so hands on, we saw with our own eyes how he brushed aside a chef and took over the preparation. Maybe he wanted the preparation to be done in no time.  Yes, fast. As it was a live demo after all.  You could not afford to dilly dolly when you're dealing with a live audience because everyone were waiting for your next move. 



I would like to commend the host for breaking the traditional duty of a host by helping in cooking the food while hosting. She's not only beautiful but she's also very articulate, the epitome of a great host indeed! Congratulations Chef!




The chefs used Breville's multi-cooker to cook everything! It was fun to watch! At the end of their demo I am dying to have my own Breville multi-cooker. Imagine all the dishes you can cook using only one kitchen appliance! You can cook every imaginable dishes you have in mind such as the paella, curry bihon, cookies, pork adobo and other yummy dishes you could think of. I would love to devour all those yummy food! The Breville Multi-cooker is just amazing!



The blogger with Young Master Chef Louise Mabulo


This dish smells so nice!


I hope one day my dream of owning my very own multi-cooker will come true! #BirthdayWish #BrevillePhilippines


Be Breville-lized! #Breville #Australia #Philippines #BrevilleKitchenAppliances

Matstone Horizontal Juicer

Posted On Sunday, August 14, 2016 by Food Blogger 0 comments

Matstone Horizontal Juicer

Dr. Kim demonstrate the health benefits of slow-juicing!

The following video is the actual demo made by Dr. Kim at the Matstone booth during the Wofex 2016 at the ground floor of SMX in SM Mall of Asia.

I learned from Dr. Kim that he personally know the owner/ manufacturer of Matstone in South Korea. He said the owners are more interested on imparting the value of good health than in making a profit. That's why he said he really wants to help them by proliferating juicing using Matstone Horizontal Juicer here in the Philippines.

Juicing plus a lifestyle change is the answer to battle a lot of illnesses that makes life difficult for some of you!

The Matstone juicer is so durable that some clients reported to have not encountered any problem in ten years time. Whoahhh! That is just so amazing! Incredible even! Matstone had been selling its juicer in the Philippines in the last twenty years and would continue to do so in the years to come.

KOREA'S ZOO COFFEE OPENS FIRST PHILIPPINE BRANCH

Posted On Monday, August 01, 2016 by Cha Sy 0 comments

KOREA'S ZOO COFFEE OPENS FIRST PHILIPPINE BRANCH



Good news to all Filipinos who love everything Korean!  Yes, that includes you, you know who you are, Koreanovela addicts, Korean food lovers and K-Pop fans!



Hmmm.... Koreanovela addicts must be thinking hard where the heck they saw Zoo coffee (주커피) before! Well, you're not imagining things. You saw Zoo Coffee from the K-drama "The innocent Man" (착한남자).



All their cafe scenes were filmed at Zoo coffee, including those scenes where Kang Choco (강조), Kang Maru’s sister was working in the cafe.




The first ever branch of Zoo Coffee Korea is now officially open at Alphaland Makati. Just outside the cafe' is a towering life-sized giraffe! Whoahhhhh! The giraffe is so huge! He's practically a foot away from the ceiling!


This is the Zoo Coffee angle from inside the Alphaland Makati premises.  Outside seating and alfresco area are available on both sides of the cafe'.


The Coffee shop's view at the left side corner of the main entrance.


Safe and hygienic stuffed animals greets you upon entering the cafe. The life size stuffed animals throughout the coffee shop attracts not only the kids but also the kid at heart. 


Meet my date at Zoo Coffee Mr. Panda. Like me, he loves the hot Ginseng Honey tea too!!!


Once inside you'll be transported to a whole new world of animal prints and stuffed toys! 
Starting with the jungle and Zebra light box counter that is very detailed and makes your imagination flies and transport you to a virtual African jungle. 


You would not miss this giant artificial tree smack right at the center of the cafe' with toy monkeys and snakes hanging on its branches.   This giant size tree has a real peels of Platycaraya strobilacea (touch it and feel the peel!) dominates the landscape of the cafe'. 

At the side of the food counter,  you would find a white tiger and a giraffe looking intently at those glorious food display.  The presence of these stuffed animals and tree brings out the jungle theme of this one-of-a-kind cafe.


Not to be missed is the exotic wall silhoutte (Barrisol)! I love its soft light. It is like a backdrop of a twilight in the African plain.


Inside the cafe' friends and colleagues could hold meetings and have a nice conversation. Look at those walls in zebra print.  


Alone? Brokenhearted? Don't worry you can hug and have a coffee date with the cafe's safe stuffed toys manufactured by a company that manufacture non-toxic dolls.

A customer having a tête–à–tête with a cute panda and a gorilla at Zoo Coffee.  Well, he's checking his phone so I guess he's inviting his friends to join him at the cafe'.


Various pictures I took inside the Zoo Coffee.




The giraffe shelves is so cute!  I absolutely love this! The collectible mugs looks amazing on it!  Please take note of the little giraffe on its side. Isn't he adorable??? So cute!

The second picture shows the Zoo Coffee executive from Korea. He is cute too! Ha ha ha! Sir/ Mr. Executive please let me taste the bestsellers for free! I am not joking. Ha ha ha!



Zoo Coffee Philippines spokesperson hugging Mr. Panda 
.

Various food choices awaits you at Zoo Coffee. Prepare to shell out at least a few hundred bucks for a simple order.


The owners are so kind they let me taste their banana waffle for free during the blog conference.  It was good. The bananas are real and not the powdered banana.  But I am looking forward on trying their bestsellers next time around.


This taste like 7-11's hot dog sandwich. It was good. Please offer rice meals for us Filipinos in the future.



I have not taste this. I only took a quick photo of it when it was served to another blogger.


You have three cup sizes to choose from for your coffee or tea. Note the animal print on their take-out cups. So cute!


Gelato's different flavors at Zoo Coffee.  I was not able to taste this because they did not served this to us.


The various nooks and corners are very ideal for an instagramable selfie. 


Verdict: 3 stars ***

The coffee is average. The prices are affordable. The service is friendly. An interesting place to have a cup of coffee.


The next time you find yourself bored and without a date try to drop by Zoo Coffee and enjoy its food and the atmosphere it has to offer. I think the zoo like environment of the coffee shop will help you educate your children about loving other God's creation. 

Zoo Coffee
G/F Alphaland Makati Place, Ayala Avenue Extension cor. Malugay Street, Bel-air, Makati 

Note: I received a Php500 gift certificate in exchange of a blog post and for attending the blog conference. Thus, the call for a second meeting to be able to review their bestsellers.

Be a blessings to others!


Be God's vessel!

Philippine Airlines Launches Coffee Table Book

Posted On Saturday, July 02, 2016 by Cha Sy 0 comments

Philippine Airlines Launches Coffee Table Book 



The country’s flag carrier, Philippine Airlines (PAL), has launched a coffee table book to mark its 75 years of flying to various destinations here and abroad at the Badjao room of Century Park Hotel last July 1, 2016 in Manila, Philippines.



The title of the 
200-page book is “75 years of celebrating the heart of the Filipino, honoring the past, celebrating the present and innovating the future”.


Travel through PAL's 75 years of wonderful history when you browse through the pages of your very own copy of PAL's Coffee Table Book. 


Book lovers would surely love all the photos and trivia that could be found in the book. It contains a lot of history and information unknown to many. 


Be amazed on how PAL evolved since its maiden flight with only five passengers from the Nielsen Airfield in Makati City to Loakan airport in the northern part of the Philippines- Baguio City on March 15, 1941 to what it is now at present.


I learned that the first international stewardess was a Filipina named Rebecca Versoza Santos who was married to a PAL dentist.  Interestingly, the first female commercial pilot in Southeast Asia is also a Filipina! Her name is Aimee Carandang-Gloria,  who by the way was present during the launching. 



I personally love how the editor, Jonathan Gesmundo and his writers and staff lovingly put together and summarized in one book all of PAL's past and present airplanes type. Mr. Gesmundo successfully collated all data since 2011. He definitely captured each decade’s achievements and challenges. 

The book not only affirmed Philippine Airlines' place in aviation history but it also boast the sense of pride of every men and women who ever worked with the airlines. 

I strongly believe that every Filipino and PAL enthusiast should buy a copy of the Coffee Table Book because it is not only "siksik liglig at hitik na hitik sa inpormasyon" but also because for every book you buy part of the proceeds of book sale will go to PAL foundation that never stop lending a helping hand to our poor brothers and sisters in different parts of the world.


To learn more about Pal's colorful evolution grab a copy of PAL's Coffee Table Book! It is a collector's item! Teach your kids about the history of PAL! 

The generation to come will surely love PAL's diamond history summarized in one (1) hardbound Coffee Table Book available for sale at PAL offices and online for only Php1,975 through www.philippineairlines.com and via Facebook at Philippine Airlines Boutique.


 

Traveling by air has never been this good.
DID YOU KNOW THAT?



Philippine Airlines (PAL) had an airplane with a lip mark on its nose? 


Pal pioneered sky beds for long-haul flights in 1979. 


My very first domestic airplane ride was with a PAL turboprop plane. Yes, that plane with a very noisy propeller (elise).
