Figaro Coffee Company – A Good Cafe for the Weight Conscious
I know we’re already at the trend of losing weight and most of us wants to be physically lean and fit. But living a healthy lifestyle can be really hard, like finding a restaurant or cafe in Manila that serves lite, healthy or diabetic-friendly food. In the Philippines, it’s part of our culture to eat and eat. We can eat a total of 6 times a day! Three minor meals or snacks and three major meals! We are really fond of eating.

What Makes Kenny Rogers Roasters Different?

What Makes Kenny Rogers Roasters Different?
Before, whenever I’m hungry and craving for roasted chicken, Kenny Rogers Roasters always come to my mind first. I can’t help it because they’re really different.

Piyesta’s Pakbet and their Set Meals!
I really love eating vegetables and one of my favorite vegetable dish is Pakbet. Pakbet is a tagalog  tasty vegetable dish made-up of different fresh vegetables, pork, and shrimp paste.
