Recently, my husband and I have been trying to adapt a healthy lifestyle. See the emphasis on “trying”—because really, it’s hard to eat “healthy” when you’ve got the whole wide world of yummy food. Luckily, you can have both: yummy and healthy at the same time!

How? Well, let me share with you one of my mom’s “healthier” recipes: a great combination of Ginataang Kalabasa paired with Tilapia and brown rice. Read more…

My sister is an avid fan of polvoron. Back in elementary, she and her tutor used to make loads of polvoron during their breaks.

Other than being cheapskates, we aren’t really the type who would try expensive food that we aren’t even sure we would enjoy. So when we received an invite for a complimentary breakfast at 1771 Sentro, we figured it was a good opportunity to try out something new without feeling so bad if we happen not to like it. Besides, Marc and I signed up to join a fun run to be held at The Fort this July—we were looking for a good place to gorge ourselves after the event.

Well, off-hand I can say that waking up to try breakfast at 1771 Sentro was worth it. Let me tell you why… Read more…
