My Travel Essentials

Posted On Tuesday, May 30, 2023 by Food Blogger 0 comments

Whenever I travel, I make sure to bring my "travel essentials" 

My number one travel essentials are medicines. I could not afford to get sick while traveling so I make sure to bring medicines made with love by one of my favorites and what comes to my mind when someone said "top pharmaceutical companies in the Philippines" Pascual Laboratories, Inc. (PascualLab)

PascualLab is now on its 77th year of delivering quality and family-friendly health and wellness products to the Filipino people.


Not resting on its laurels, Pascual Lab continue to spread #PascualLove, reaffirming its commitment to pursue its vision of Strong, Healthy Families.

Pioneering Innovations

Since it was founded in 1946 to help address the health needs of Filipinos during the post-war era, PascualLab has been constantly at the forefront of providing quality health innovations through its products. 



Among its purposeful innovations are Vitex negundo L. Lagundi Leaf (Ascof Lagundi)*, the first and the No. 1 Lagundi cough remedy in the market², and WellGreens, a line of premium organic supplements that go through a 13-step quality a
ssurance process and that are certified pure organic by the EU and USDA, certified for Good Agricultural Practices by the Department of Agriculture, and Halal by the Islamic Da’wah Council of the Philippines. 

I remember, when I took a train from Bangkok to Hat Yai before the pandemic, I was coughing non-stop prompting a co-passenger to give me a face mask. I was really embarrassed.  Good thing, that I brought with me a small bottle of Ascof Lagundi!  Promise, it solves my "pesteng ehem".  A real life saver. Alagang #PascualLab yan!

PascualLab: Spreading #PascualLove For Over Seven Decades

Another travel essentials I love is PascualLab's Poten-Cee. 

Quality and Care At The Heart of their Service
Beyond purposeful innovations, quality and care have always been at the heart of PascualLab, creating health products that suit various health and lifestyle needs such as top adult Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) brand–Poten-Cee Vitamin C. 

Poten-Cee offers variants from adult to pedia as well as specific variants to suit people with sensitive stomachs, busy lifestyles, and those watching their blood sugar. One of Poten-Cee's newer variants include Poten-Cee Zn Advance (Ascorbic acid + Zinc + Cholecalciferol) that has the ideal combination of Vitamin C, Zinc, and Vitamin D, to help boost immunity.


This year, PascualLab is introducing Poten-Cee + Collagen’s (Poten-Cee + C’s) newest variant, Marine Collagen. Poten-Cee + C Marine Collagen has Sodium Ascorbate³ (Vitamin C in non-acidic format) and
Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen sourced from fish.

Vitamin C is essential for collagen production while Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen helps reduce wrinkles and improve skin hydration and firmness. 


Of course, I don't just brush my teeth, I also use Mouthwash! 

Making Health Easier From their family To Yours
Along the lines of oral health, PascualLab, is also one of the pioneers in introducing a mouthrinse with Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide, OraCare Mouth Rinse. OraCare Mouth Rinse helps keep the mouth healthy, along with brushing and flossing, with regular use. 

Now, OraCare Mouth rinse’s no sting formulation makes gargling easier, more affordable and available to family members*** with its’ ”Buy More, Save More”, Buy 1 Take 1 promo.****

LTO: Standardized Driving School Rates

Posted On Wednesday, March 29, 2023 by GRUMPY TOAST 0 comments

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) standardized fees for driving courses and released new guidelines for the accreditation and management of driving schools.

LTO, Driving School Standard Tuition, Maximum rates

The guidelines will be implemented starting April 15, 2023. It includes the standard way of teaching student drivers and those who plan to apply as a conductor.

According to the Memorandum Circular No. JMT- 2023-2390, released by the LTO, private driving institutions may set their theoretical driving (TDC) fee to 1,000. Meanwhile, they may charge 2,500 to 8,000 for practical driving courses (PDC). The PDC fees will depend on the type of car or license code.

In addition, it is also stated in the memorandum that applicants may complete their mandatory 15-hour theoretical driving course within two days. However, the applicants must accomplish their mandatory 15-hour TDC in one month. On the other hand, the practical driving course (PDC) should be completed in at least 8 hours per license code.

The memorandum specified that PDC for light and heavy vehicles should be at least two days. Meanwhile, the 8-hour PDC for motorcycles may be conducted for one day. However, the student driver should prove to have excellent knowledge about motorcycle driving according to their practical driving instructor’s assessment.

LTO also requires driving schools to register the biometrics and other details of their applicants to the LTO system through the Land Transportation Management System (LTMS) Client ID. This is to determine the actual start of the applicant’s TDC.

To get a driving license in the Philippines, one must attend a pre-requisite TDC and PDC and pass the LTO driving test.

KURIMI CLOVERLEAF: Japan Genshin Impact Inspired 2D Theme Milk Tea Bar

Posted On Saturday, March 18, 2023 by Food Blogger 1 comments

Genshin Impact fans in the Philippines are in for a wonderful treat especially those bubble tea fans who are sick and tired of drinking in a boring 3D world. There’s a wonderful 2D shop featuring your favorite game called Kurimi. Kurimi 2D Milk Tea Bar in Ayala Malls Cloverleaf has a Japanese-Genshin Impact theme. I bet all the fans of Genshin Impact would all be giddy and happy looking for some of the characters hidden in the shop’s 2d drawings.

Cha Sy, Genshin Impact, Kurimi,

Insta-worthy Kurimi 2D milk tea bar's newest franchisees are a big fan of the game. The couple loves the game Genshin Impact so much that they decided to incorporate the popular characters of the game in their Kurimi branch located beside the cinema at the 4th floor of Ayala Malls Cloverleaf. 


Kurimi Ayala Malls Cloverleaf Franchisees 

Genshin Impact,  kurimi

From what I know, 2D cafes first started popping up in Korea and then made their way here in the Philippines. What caught my attention is the shop’s tables, chairs, windows, even a cabinet, painted in 2D style. It’s surreal to walk inside and so fun to take pictures. Kurimi Milk Tea Bar is fully decorated in two-dimensional decor, created by thick black lines drawn over an all-white walls and furnitures.

Kurimi, Genshin Impact, Cha Sy

Kurimi Milk Tea Bar makes me feel like I've stepped into a world of black and white drawing. Every nook and corners of Kurimi is covered with substantial drawings.

How do you drink your milk tea?

I recommend that you shake your milk tea 15 times before consuming.


Oh, I love the scent of tea, Oreo cookies and sweet sugar as I puncture my bubble tea drink with a straw for my first sip!

Kurimi's crushed Oreo cookies blended in thick and creamy vanilla milk and mixed with tapioca pearls cooked in a house blend gives a satisfyingly chewy bite.

The milky concoction is so yummy that you would definitely want a second cup ๐Ÿฅค 


By the way, from March 18 to 31, all Kurimi stores nationwide have a March Madness Promo where you can get two (2) Large Kurimi signature drink- the brown sugar booba milk with pearl together with Kurimi classic milk tea with pearl for only Php199.

CALAUAN LAGUNA: Acienda Del Cielo

Posted On Wednesday, January 18, 2023 by Food Blogger 0 comments

๐Ÿ“ธ Cha Sy 

I was greeted by the rustling leaves and swaying trees as I stepped inside Acienda Del Cielo in Calauan, Laguna.  Thank you to all the angels I met along the way. Most notable is Calauan angel who I met inside the jeepney from Calamba to San Pablo via Calauan hi-way in my first ever commute since 2020 from Manila. You see, finding a spot like this along the highway isn’t easy especially at nighttime if you're like me who've never been to Calauan Laguna before. 

The angel in the jeepney asked me to alight with her in front of the Rural Bank of Calauan where her husband fetched her. She then persuaded her husband to bring me to the gate of Acienda Del Cielo using their trike to ensure my safety because the jeepney driver said he doesn't know "Acienda del Cielo" nor its former name "Samland" located at 48J7+G6F, San Pablo Highway, Balayhangin, Calauan, Laguna. Again, thank you my ๐Ÿ˜‡ angel ๐Ÿ™ Because of you my FAITH IN HUMANITY WAS RESTORED. 

Another encounter with angels on earth.

                    

The good hearted guard told me to just wait for Ms. Inah of the design team and accounting to finish dressing up and put her make up on for the event that night, so I can come with her at the pavillion in their service e-trike so I would no longer walk in the narrow road alone.


๐Ÿ“ท  Leomy
First Impression

I thought the place is small because of the small gate and narrow road leading inside the property.  

๐Ÿ“ท Wazzup

Boy, was I surprised when we reached the pavillion and saw the spacious garden inside. Acienda del Cielo may look small from the outside but it is really huge inside. 

๐Ÿ“ท Wazzup

When we got to the pavilion, 
suddenly the terrain changes. It becomes hilly and the roads inside are wider than that at the entrance. And lo and behold, this is the highest point of this side directly facing
 Mt. Kalisungan. No wonder the place is called Acienda del Cielo, which literally means "Sky Estate".

๐Ÿ“ธ Cha Sy 

Fresh air is what welcomed us, as Ms. Inah and I walked towards the pavillion, but what drew my attention was the large swimming pool, a few meters from the pavillion's side entrance. As you all know, a resort wouldn’t be complete without a pool, and the water was definitely enticing. If it weren’t for the cool weather when I visited, I would definitely have jumped at the chance to take a quick swim. Ha ha ha!
๐Ÿ“ธ Aileen De Leon 

They have a huge Figure 8 Pool
– good for both adults and kids, how I wish they have a jacuzzi too on the side.  I think a poolside bar is also ideal where you can grab a mocktail while in the water just like in Manila Hotel  ♥ 

๐Ÿ“ท Cha Sy 

Just a few hours away from Metro Manila.

Just like other people, my family and I usually take a respite from our busy schedules by having staycations in different hotels in the Metro, anywhere with good air conditioning and soundproofing to block out the rest of the city. But as time passes by, these offerings are not enough. Breathing positive ions is what you would wish for. Something you’d normally find from places that are a few hours away from the Metro like Tagaytay,  Baguio,  Batangas and Laguna.

Acienda del Cielo may be located in a remote and not a posh location but when you see their bridal house, their pavillion and twin house log cabin you can't help but say to yourself, “Today is going to be great”

WHAT IS IN THE NAME?

Acienda del Cielo was known among locals as "Samland Resorts". It was built in the ‘90s. About June last year, its previous owners sold the property and the new owner recently decided to renovate and rejuvenate the property. They decided to make it more aesthetically pleasing by painting their log cabins white. They finally reopened their doors to guests just over a few months ago.

๐Ÿ“ธ Fb of Acienda Del Cielo 

Sitting at the highest peak of Calauan Laguna, it gives guests uninterrupted views of Mt. Kalisungan mountain range. The property’s layout and log cabin-inspired architecture also help create an intimate experience despite the largeness of the space.

The views and fresh air are just part of the experience. I can't help myself but touch the grass. Nature is really beautiful. Very refreshing to the soul.

The property is expansive enough to house several facilities without it feeling crowded, and there’s a court for some of the most popular sports in the Philippines. There’s a tennis/badminton court that can also be turned into a basketball court. 

๐Ÿ“ธ Cha Sy

The property is very promising. I would l suggest for them to develope it into a team building facility complete with biking and running trail, camping, and, yes, wall climbing facility, maybe even a mini-golf academy as well with a certified instructor to boot to help guests practice their swings. They could also provide badminton and tennis rackets and a game table for table tennis.

They could 
also hold shooting range activities for gun or airsoft enthusiasts if there is no scheduled event. I remember in Singapore,  my doctor friend relaxes by spending time playing airsoft after work every night.

And considering how exclusive and private the property feels, and how you’re not running into crowds of people, it definitely feels like it’s worth the commute.

Destination events are on the rise, but you don’t need to ship your whole conference over to Baguio or Boracay to feel the inspiration of being in a new place: there are hundreds of amazing and stimulating venues in Southern Luzon that will breath new life into your upcoming meeting or conference like Acienda del Cielo.

Celebrate your life's precious moments at Acienda del Cielo.  Their air-conditioned pavillion are capable of holding up to 250 guests. They have both indoor (pavillion) and outdoor venues (Garden) that are perfect for that special event ranging from large scale corporate meetings, conferences and classes, trade shows, product launches, fundraisers, auctions, screenings and performances, to weddings, intimate receptions and private parties, yes, be it a debut,  kiddie birthday party, engagement, wedding, baptism, graduation, team-building, talks, pop-up bazaar as well as other private events, and pre-nuptials photo and video shoots.

Book your dream intimate weddings and other events now through their websites and FB account. 

DISCLAIMER: Not a sponsored paid blog but was invited to a Thanksgiving event inside the Acienda.
