New and it’s FDA Approved: Wheatgrass Lemon

Our new product is here!

Wheatgrass is a good blood builder, anti-bacterial and good for digestion.

And don’t we ALL just love Lemon, with its tangy, sour taste and fresh/perky smell!

The lemon is a rich source of nutrients like calcium, potassium, vitamin C and pectin fibre. Like wheatgrass, it has medicinal values and antibacterial properties.

Drinking wheatgrass with lemon regularly will help in removing overall acidity in the body including uric acid which causes pain and inflammation in the joints. Let’s keep building up our pH balance.

My visit to Hello Kitty Dessert Bar in SM North EDSA – Philippines

I went to the Philippines for a two week short vacation and it’s a must to block my schedule to visit Hello Kitty Dessert Bar in SM North EDSA. It was a gloomy friday when we traveled from Cavite to North side of Metro, the traffic was so bad early in the morning and we need to get back to Cavite before afternoon rush hour.

Weeks ago, Hello Kitty Cafe truck visited Midwest USA (Illinois) and we lined up for two hours to grab yummy Hello Kitty treats. I am very eager to drag myself early morning to be able to complete my mission.

HK pastries

Fortunately, when we arrived in SM North EDSA’s Prime Block (3rd Floor) the store was empty so we went ahead and ordered different treats like doughnuts, tiramisu, coffee and shakes (with Hello Kitty faces & Sanrio gang on icings, toppings and coffee design).

As we were waiting for our orders, we took snapshots of the shop’s pink Hello Kitty facade and tons of selfie. White and pink tables complemented the ‘kawaiiness’ atmosphere though the seats were limited, I highly advised that you arrive early. Utensils from paper cups, stirrer and placemats have Hello Kitty faces and I wish I can take them home while Hello Kitty cafe crews wear their cutest pink aprons.

My Mango-Graham Frappe was a grand winner (not that too sweet, perfectly paired with my doughnut!) as well as the other drinks according to my family & friend. The signature Hello Kitty and My Melody doughnuts were soo good!

Other food items include like salads, signature pasta, and breads. Price range from Php 85 and above. It’s quite expensive but who cares if you love Hello Kitty, you’ll appreciate the ambiance and the food.

I heard that a more spacious Hello Kitty Cafe is about to open soon in SM Aura or nearby BGC? Can you please confirm?

Jollibee: Filipino fast food chain opens in Skokie, Illinois

The first Filipino fast food chain made its debut on July 29 in Midwest. Located in the Touhy Marketplace shopping center (3534 Touhy Avenue), its opening day was a jampacked and we were lucky that we don’t have to wait that long when we went last weekend. The lines continue to develop and people keep coming in from different places. I know people drove hours for Jollibee. That’s how we love Jollibee.

Everyone is patiently waiting just to take home our favorite chickenjoy, burgers and halo-halo. Unfortunately, burger steak is not available until August 15. Jollibee’s menu is quite different from the Philippines because the store serves halo-halo. It won’t matter if we want an hour or more just to taste our local dishes. I’ve read online and non-Filipinos were curious why there were so many people lining outside, some recommended they should try it and we would love to hear your feedback about our food. If you were watching Anthony Bourdain’s show in CNN – Parts Unknown. There was a scene wherein he tries eating at Jollibee.


Part of our family tradition is to eat at Jollibee, rain or shine, breakfast to dinner, dine in or take out. We even celebrate our birthdays, different occasions and meetings because we love to share our moments with Jollibee.

This is also a good opportunity to come and meet together. You’ll see the excitement on their faces when they reach the cashier area. The place can’t accommodate all of us so it’s better if you order and ‘take out’ (to go). I remembered few years ago when I flew to California and Las Vegas, eating at Jollibee is on my ‘must to do’ list. Now, how lucky we are because there will be a 2nd Jollibee about to open in N Elston Ave (Chicago) later this year.

Happy Bee Day to all of us!

Hello Kitty Chocolate Toy Surprise – Mystery Box 1

I went to the mall last Friday to buy some food and I stumbled upon this Hello Kitty choco toy surprise. There are 12 toys hiding in a chocolate coated egg shaped container with 1 mystery toy awaiting inside.

I only bought 1 since I am not into collecting small Hello Kitty stuff, just for curiosity and I don’t want to spend much $ on this (FOCUS).

Toys included are small plastic Hello Kitty figures, keychains, and puzzles.

The box inside contains 1 Hello Kitty Egg, so wait until I open the foil to check out what’s inside:

Here’s what i got! A Hello Kitty small figure. This can be placed on top of your PC desktop monitor. After opening the foil, you have to break the chocolate coated egg to get the toy which was hidden inside of a pink plastic egg. The only disappointment on this was it was too hard to open the plastic egg. Also, for health reasons – you may also thought that this might be dangerous because the plastic egg is coated with chocolate. It may be also a choking hazard for children because it contains small item inside.

 

Aside from Hello Kitty, there were also Frozen, Disney, SpongeBob, Minions and a lot of different characters. Anyways, Have a blessed Easter to everyone!
