Quick and Easy Meals With Filippo Berio.

I love eating out in restaurants so I'm not really a domestic diva but lately, I've been trying to learn quick and easy meals I can do at home.  So when I got a package from Filippo Berio, I thought of what I can do with the items inside.

S&R Members' Treat (Sept 30 to Oct 2).

You guessed it.. The much-awaited S&R Members' Treat is back!  

From September 30 to October 2 (that's next week already!), our favorite items will be discounted up to 50% or Buy 1, Take 1.  I wish Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream will be on sale.  Looking forward to hoard Chunky Monkey, Choco Chop Cookie Dough, and New York Fudge Choco! I can imagine topping S&R's US Double Choco Chop Creme Ring Cake or US Vanilla Marble Ring Cake (yes, I have a sweet tooth) with those flavors so I hope the cakes are on sale too.

If any of you are in Alabang next weekend, I'll see you there!  Happy shopping!

Review of Huawei P9's Leica Camera.

Even before the advent of digital cameras and smartphones, I already love taking photos of food, landscapes, and everything in between.  I got it from my mom who documents everything, like our family trips, milestones in our lives, or even the most mundane things like eating out or going to the park.  As I grew older, I appreciated what she did for us even more because I have photos to remember those happy moments by.  It was more difficult then.. Cameras were bulky, not to mention we had to carry rolls of film and packs of batteries.  But now, it's so easy!  We always have our smartphone with us so we can just take pictures anytime.

That's why I was excited to snap photos using the new Huawei P9 smartphone because I learned that it co-engineered with Leica to come up with groundbreaking dual lenses!  I can't believe it.. Leica lenses in a smartphone! That is just wow.  

And it just so happened that I had a workcation (work + vacation) the week I received my Huawei P9 so I brought it along to try it out.  Changing the way I see the world? Check!

Gourmade by Chef Rob Lau's Healthy Food Delivery.

Every diet starts tomorrow.

What started as an inside joke between my family and friends became the tag line of this blog because I'd always try to lessen my eating but end up pigging out and declaring after that I'll start tomorrow.  I know I'm not alone in this dilemma and we all know that "tomorrow" never comes :D

To be honest, I cannot diet for the life of me because my EQ is low when it comes to food.  When I want something, I need to eat it. But then after seeing the yoyo effect of fad diets on other people, I realized that starving yourself doesn't really work.  What is needed is a change in lifestyle and eating right. And since the hardest part in all of this is starting, you can try Gourmade by Chef Rob Lau's food delivery so you won't be hassled with figuring out your menu and preparing the dishes.

There are two kinds of menus: Skinny Down and Pescatarian.   Skinny Down is for those who want to lose weight by eating portion controlled meals.  Pescatarian works the same way too but it's for those who prefer only fish and vegetables.   Each  meal plan is for 5 days which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks per day.

I've tried both Skinny Down and Pescatarian and I want to show you how yummy the dishes are because the usual feedback I hear from those who've tried other diet food delivery services is that the food is not that good or does not have any flavor.
