Snacking: My guilty pleasure

Image
I think am one of them. Who doesn't love eating snacks after each major meals?

Snacking is a dietary behavior that has increased in recent decades in the United States, while percentages of the population who are overweight and obese also have increased. Now, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) researchers with the Food Surveys Research Group (FSRG) in Beltsville, Md., have examined dietary intake survey data from more than 5,000 adults aged 20 years and older to focus on snacking habits, which are associated with increased caloric intake and decreased nutrient intake.

The average intake of empty calories for men aged 20 and older surveyed was 923 calories per day. So men, on average, are consuming two to three times their limit in the solid fats and added sugars categor…

About the film, Moron 5 and the crying lady

Half-witted longtime friends Albert (Luis), Isaac (Billy), Mozart "Mo" (DJ), Michaelangelo "Mike" (Martin) and Aristotle "Aris" (Marvin Agustin) were used to living moronic yet pretty normal and hassle-free lives until successful careerwoman Becky Pamintuan (John Lapus) accused them of killing her father and ruin everything for them. The Moron 5 are more than sure of their innocence but the life of them, they cannot find a single satisfactory argument on how to prove it especially when their opponent would do everything to punish them for whim.

Spending three miserable years in prison trying different failed comedic attempts to get out, they finally figured a way to escape. They stalked Becky and try to understand why she…

Door to Door Sabaw challenge with Knorr and Marvin Agustin

Image
Here comes a "Door to Door Sabaw Challenge," and this time, one of the most successful chef and restaurateur - Marvin Agustin, will be visiting different cities all over the Philipines to challenge each cooks which one is the better, more ma-karne and better-tasting sabaw: the one made with Knorr Cubes, or not?

Here's the scenario: Marvin will present two versions of sabaw, one made with granules and the other, made with Knorr cubes. Marvin believes so much in the product’s claims to deliver the meatiest taste and flavor that he throws in a promise to give up cooking if they end up choosing the sabaw that’s not made of Knorr cubes—and everyone knows how passionate Marvin is about cooking, so for him to promise that is a big deal.

Among the locations Marvin will visit are Laguna, Iloilo, and Metro Manila. There will be a series of 30-seconder commercials featuring Marvin engaging cooks and housewives to take part in the challenge.

As the new brand ambassador, Marvin who star…

You still have until today to witness and taste the latest food craze in town! NBC Tent yesterday was filled with mouth-watering foods at a very affordable prices. The rain won't stop but I was able to dropped by and spend the rest of my Saturday afternoon with some of my friends.

Inside the tent, you can find a good selection of cakes, pastries, and yummy desserts. It's really hard to decide which one to buy but I enjoyed talking to the booth exhibitors and owners. I just asked for their business cards and wrote down their contact numbers and websites.

[gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="4" orderby="title"]



Good thing that the grill area and other foods were outside the tent. We were surprised when we reached that area. I can't decide whether I should go for a burger, fries, pizza?



The food fest is until today, Sunday. If you're nearby the NBC tent,  then what are you waiting for?

Last night the street was filled with people going inside this vacant lot, until I figured out tonight that Nuestra Senora de la Anunciata is there and a short procession was held on the stretch of our street. I dropped by a while ago in time for the Novena. Tonight, meals have been distributed to the crowd. And, there is a long line outside to pay respect. Credits to the owner of the photo, I didn't brought my digicam with me :)
The feast of this day is called the Annunciation of our Lady, for on this day the angel Gabriel showed to the glorious Virgin Mary the coming of the Blessed Son of God.

Ella Chen of SHE: Flew to Guam via Hello Kitty Plane

Image
S.H.E. member Ella Chen will be tying the knot with her Malaysian fiancé Alvin Lai on May 5.

On the day of their departure, Ella and Hebe, who boarded the Hello Kitty private jet for the first time, were excited to see all the adorable accessories.

"This is our first time going to Guam and taking a Hello Kitty plane. It felt like we've become cute as well since everything from food to utilities consists of these irresistible Hello Kitty products. It's so romantic," the pair gushed.

When the air stewardess gave Ella with a pink Hello Kitty apron, used by the flight's stewardesses, the singer immediately put it on and joked, "Wearing it this way (over her clothes) is not sexy at all because the apron hides everything. Maybe I can wear nothing but this (the apron) privately?"

Friday Night Dinner at Mr Kurosawa

Image
I thank everyone who greeted me on my birthday. I was so busy with my endeavors and moved all my schedule of meet ups on weekend. Last Friday, it was a surprise gathering of few people I love. Despite of the 'busy schedules' we agreed to meet and had dinner, just like what we were doing for the past few months - the laughter, stories and adventures were endless.

I arranged the dinner and decided to invite them to Mr Kurosawa. I've checked the menu online and saw the 'big servings' category. Since my allergy attacked few months ago, I am afraid of eating 'seafoods, chicken, grilled, and sushi' - I am not a killjoy, so I challenged myself to eat grilled tuna belly, ebi tempura, chicken yakitori!

"BOX - OFFICE HIT - Php 1,588"
meat fried rice, ebi tempura, stuffed eggplant, grilled tuna belly, beef teppan, chicken yakitori, yasai itame, dynamite roll

Ever Gotesco Grand Central: Goodbye

Here is the before and after photo of Ever Gotesco Grand Central (credits to the news agencies). The fire started in Friday evening and continued to rage over the weekend (that's more than 48 hours!) and placed the fire under control yesterday (Tuesday morning).

The cause of the fire is still undetermined. Tenants weren't able to rescue some of their goods and trying to wish the mall to check out what they can save but the security remained tight. Unfortunately, they were not allowed to enter the mall premises.

I saw tonight's evening news and everything inside the mall is ruined.

MDNA: Album coming out soon

Image
Madonna most involved for her 12th studio album “MDNA”

If listeners find all the earmarks and trademarks of Madonna in her latest album, that’s a testament to her deep involvement to the process of creating the package, her twelfth and first outside her old label. The powerplay of maturity and a new beginning she's now embarking on makes this one another turning point to her career strengthened by ingenuity and artistic adventure.

While the album title, “MDNA,” is a mere abbreviation of the Mother of Invention’s  world-famous name (as suggested by collaborator M.I.A), its accidental meaning, being Madonna’s DNA, actually defines the finished product as her imprint as one of the world’s most successful artists of all time can be heard all over the collection.

The 12-track album, to be released this March 26, is led by the cool single “Give Me All Your Luvin” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. By now the track has spread via limited privilege as provided by iTunes --- in the process only…

Summer is not only the perfect time to be reunited with your family and friends; It is also a good opportunity for your kids to send them to summer clinics for them to spend the vacation time productive and memorable. I remembered those summer times when Mommy brought us to malls to attend different activities organized by Sustagen. Yes, Kuya and I were proud 'club' members. There were fun activities like drawing, board games, dance games and a lot more. The most thing I remembered was Susy and Geno sent birthday cards to all 'month'celebrants and we were invited to attend the monthly parties organize by the number one health drink for the kids.

That was almost two decades ago. Until I've read something online, wherein Susy is looking for Geno. They lost in touch through the years. Cyberspace helped Susy to send massive messages to Facebook, a social networking site t…

The Fray: Scars and Stories

Image
Critically acclaimed Denver-based foursome The Fray are back with their third album, Scars & Stories. The album was recorded at the legendary Blackbird Studios in Nashville.

The Fray was able to hone their sound with the help of producer Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, and Neil Young). On the new recording, the band transforms their real life experiences into a collection of songs that are reflective, but still maintain a pop sensibility. The making of Scars and Stories fostered the most evolution the band has ever experienced, both lyrically and musically. "On our first record, we didn't quite trust ourselves yet," says lead-singer Isaac Slade. "We loosened up on the second album, but there was still some element of restraint. But on this one, we just stepped up to plate and swung as hard as we could."

Scars & Stories leads with first single "Heartbeat," of which Slade notes, "That song came out of a period of my life wh…
