The Uniqueness of 5 Loaves & 2 Fish Restaurant

Discovering a new restaurant is always a fun adventure! ☺☺
Just recently, yours truly alongside other food and lifestyle bloggers got an exclusive invite to check out 5 Loaves & 2 Fish restaurant located at The Rock, mini mall, in Don Antonio Heights, Quezon City.
Upon entering the premises, you could immediately feel the homey vibe aside of course from the delicious food and desserts this resto has in store. With a high ceiling set up, the place looks and feels cozy and it makes you want to stay and linger longer while enjoying their sumptuous menu with family or friends.
My associates could not help but adore the meal samples displayed at the presentation table. The owner of 5 Loaves & 2 Fish, Ms. Dinah Miro, wanted to share their best sellers as well as personal favorites to us all. Like most of restaurant owners, her family’s passion is good food not only for the body but also for the soul. This also explains the biblical verses around the resto and into their wall design. These have fully inspired Ms. Dinah and her family to put up 5L2F.

On hand also was Chef Jay Sycip who aside from taking care of the valuable menu, is also responsible for the store’s operations. And yes he is related to the legendary and iconic and famous founder of SGV accounting firm, Mr. Washington Sycip through his dad. Way to go, chef!

Miss Dinah surprised us by raffling off a few of their bestseller whole cakes and yours truly was among those lucky winners! I won a Matcha Green cake which I was excited to bring home to family, YEHEY!!! And from the looks of it, the cake was yummy-looking and I was impressed how it was designed highlighting the matcha feel. The smell of matcha was likewise so prevalent and it enticed my appetite for a quick bite.
According to Chef Jay, the cake has no preservatives so it is advisable to consume it all right away. Whoaaa!
Many thanks Ms. Dinah!

Cool Tips for a Long Weekend

Don’t you just love long weekends? This is so applicable to working professionals and students alike!

This June 26 is Eid’l Fitr, in the calendar this year, it means another long weekend may be coming up. While we wait for the official announcement, everyone’s now scrambling to snag those promo fares or bus tickets to take advantage of this free Monday. We’re not all that lucky though, so if you won’t be able to whip up a quick vacation, here are a few things that will keep you entertained without leaving the city. Some of them are even free!
The best thing about a long weekend in the city is there are way less people crowding the streets and restaurants. Here’s your chance to head to some of those sought-after restaurants you can’t seem to get a free table in. Grab a seat at the 20-seater Mendokoro Ramenba at Salcedo Village in Makati, the tiny but super popular La Chinesca at BF Homes in Paranaque, or the full-to-the-brim Locavore in BGC or Kapitolyo.
Looking for someone who knows how to have fun? Turn to the little ones, whether you have your own kids, your young relatives, or your mommy-friend’s tots. There are so many things to do around Manila during the long weekend, but bringing the kids along will give it that extra energy and humor. Take a kalesa tour around the beautiful Intramuros, visit the many museums around the city and the newly-opened Planetarium in Manila, or let their (and your) energy loose at the many activities at SM by the Bay, Kidzania, or Dreamplay.
If you’ve been trying to live a healthier lifestyle which is a must, perhaps a visit to BPI-Philam’s Win the Moment Wellness Festival will help you jumpstart this change. Head to Trinoma Activity Center on June 24 and participate in interactive booths that let you experience total wellness – not just physical but also social, emotional, mental and financial. From dance classes by G-Force, life-sized board games, and inspirational talks that help you pursue passion without losing all your live savings, the Win the Moment Wellness Festival brings a unique experience to all Filipinos.

Top it off with a mini concert by KZ Tandingan and Quest, and you’ve crossed out one full day! Just download the Philam Vitality Active App from the Apple Store or Google Play and use the promocode bplacwtm to gain free entrance.

I hope you were all able to take note of these. Share me later what happend?

So enjoy your looooong weekend before the end of this month! Cheers! ☻☻☻

 

Be a Neu Bake Super Slice Fan Just Like Baeby-Baste

Known to the general public as dabarkads and super cutey Bae-by Baste, the four year old child superstar from the daily noon time show Eat Bulaga has been making waves since his YouTube dubsmash days up to this very day. That is why the country’s leading bread manufacturer Gardenia got him and his loving mom Sheila to be the latest endorsers of Neu Bake Super Slice variant.

Sebastian Benedict Granfon, aka Baste is a bright, precocious young boy who never fails to liven up our afternoon with his charm, wit and natural flair for comedy.

Neu Bake’s Super Slice which is bigger than most white breads in the market, making it perfect for Baste’s big appetite. During the special mother and son bonding time of Bae-by Baste and Mommy Sheila at their recent media launch, while her mom was busy sharing their cute sandwich stories, he was also busy doing his own thing with his sandwich and fillings.
Mommy Sheila further shares that as a mom, it is important to prepare healthy food to our children. Just like his son who loves egg and ham sandwiches among others, the food bonding moments they share keep them closer together. She loves preparing these bread snacks and packs them as “baon” for Baste his daily noon time duties.

The media is goo-goo ang gaga over Bae-by Baste. In here, he was being interviewed by a couple of showbiz reporters from TV5 and GMA Kapuso 7. And his candid answers make him more cute and adorable!
Say cheeeeeese!!!

Even the staff of Gardenia’s Neu Bake Super Slice could not resist having this cool group photo op with Mommy Sheila and Baste. And how that red apron looks nice on him!
Of course, yours truly was a success in this spotlight-like selfie with dabarkad Baste. It’s been in my bucketlist of mine to have a photo with this babe and thank you Neu Bake for making it sooo happen!

Neubake Super Slice comes in a horizontal, super tipid pack and only costs P29 for 10 slices. You may also try the Wheaten Bread variant which I personally like!

NeuBake is now available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores.

Many thanks Chelle Campos for having us during Bae-by Baste’s event with Neu Bake Super Slice. Until the next ones to come! ☺♥☺

Co+Nut+Ink Ice Cream Finally in the Philippines

15536839_1505587809469041_596420349_o

How can resist ice cream? I have a sweet tooth and that includes eating and sampling any flavored ice cream and the like. Just recently, a good blogger friend of mine invited yours truly to an ice cream event that was happening at SM Mall of Asia. How can I resist?

Upon arrival at the venue, I learned that we were to sample coconut ice cream! Yes and it was courtesy of Co+Nut+Ink  and they were having a fun Scoop Me Up event! It was nice to see some of my cool blogger friends too.

The program had already started and the energetic host was facilitating a cool contest on what Co+Nut+Ink was all about with the crowd gathered in front of the ice cream  stand. Exciting prizes were given away to the happy participants. It seemed everybody knew the answers! Woot!

Co+Nut+Ink which also means “coconut drink” is the latest ice cream craze to hit the metro that according to the founder and finance guru, Lawrence Tang, the idea he originally got from his travel to Thailand. He liked the concept of coconut ice cream and with permission from the creators brought the cool idea to his native Singapore. It was not an easy ride to recognition at the start for he had to learn a lot of stuff and things about making coconut ice cream and how to market it to the public. With all hard work paying off, the rest so to speak is history and is now in our local shores.

icecreamOfficially starting last September 2016, this coco goodness has one mission – to help billions of people find their happiness. That for every scoop, you are contributing to the ecosystem. Co+Nut+ink is part of a newly created ecosystem for the coconut industry, giving more value for our farmers as well as the investment opportunity in agriculture.

The first branch of Co+Nut+ink here in the city is located near SM Hypermart of SM MOA along the walkway which is a very good and strategic spot to attract a lot of customers who crave for fresh coconut drinks and a healthy scoop of coconut ice cream!

The ice cream is carefully and skillfully hand-made from the source and at this age of modern technology, I certainly appreciate that process more of having the personal touch in food. Try out their Classic, Premium Dessert and Premium Nuts and Fruits flavors with reasonable prices.

During the program, I also noticed some children together with their Mom’s or Dad’s were also able to stir their creativity at the arts and crafts area. Using watercolors, crayons and coloring pens, they designed recycled coconut shells.
Co+Nut+ink brand ambassador Sachzna Laparan also graced the fun event and mingled with the crowd. 15515611_1505550096139479_1124999354_oMr. Tang also shared with the guests last weekend an amazing news that beginning January 2017, Co+Nut+ink will introduce the very first patented robotic self-serve coconut ice cream machine. The coconut ice cream craze will also be present available in all major theme parks such as Disneyland, Universal Studio, and Manila Ocean Park in the Philippines. Isn’t that amaaaazing???
