In time for the International Thyroid Awareness Week [ITAW] 2017, Merck, the leading science and healthcare innovation company has worked hand in hand with the Philippine Thyroid Association [PTA], Philippine Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism [PSEDM], and the Iodine Global Network [IGN], to raise consciousness and create more public awareness on thyroid diseases.

A Delicate Balance: A Window to the Batanes Way of Life


The popular images of Batanes are those of breathtaking verdant landscapes and blue waters, alternately agitated and calm. These northernmost Philippine islands have long been part of a traveler’s must-go-and-experience list.  But Batanes is more than just a weekend getaway.

“A Delicate Balance: Batanes Food, Ecology and Community” reveals why. A project of The Museo ng Kaalamang Katutubo (MusKKat), this handsome book explores how food, ecology, nature, and tradition, have shaped the Ivatan way of life in the last 4,000 years.  It also explains too that the Ivatan and the Itbayat, people of the Batanes, knew well how to husband resources through aeons, without depleting or otherwise compromising nature.

Coco Fresh Tea and Juice celebrates 20th year with a treat

Panda Milk Tea

Since the start of the milk tea craze here in Manila, I’ve always been fond of trying out milk tea places, be it the mall type ones or the hole-in-the-wall ones. However, only a few really stand out with their unique flavors or their exceptionally well done usual flavors. The tea competition is actually tough. 

Panda Milk Tea

My first encounter with Coco Fresh Tea and Juice was when they opened their branch in Gateway Mall, Cubao. The Taiwan-based franchise has come to the Philippine shore and it has so many branches across the metropolis. They’re offering different kinds of bubble teas.
If you’ll see a long queue near the escalator at the corner of Coco Fresh Tea and Juice at the Gateway mall, don’t be surprised. People don’t really mind the long lines just to get their fix of Coco Fresh Tea and Juice.

Troika, is a premium gourmet coffee, an instant coffee made with ginseng, tongkat ali and ganoderma extracts. As we all know, ginseng has been used for thousands of years to further improve the overall health of human being. Ancient Chinese herbal traditions also prescribe that ginseng is effective for enlightening the mind and increasing wisdom. Ginseng coffee such as Troika promotes vitality and good health by overcoming general fatigue and increasing strength. Others also believed it is a pretty good aphrodisiac for the treatment of impotence. Another interesting note for this coffee is the presence of the active ingredient on ginseng called ginsenoside which has the power to sharpen the mind and memory as it helps increase concentration.  Coffee, of course is also known with boosting anti-oxidants that helps prevents certain cancers.

The Gardenia Pocket Sandwich: Pocketfull of Yummy Goodness

Yes, these Gardenia Pocket Sandwiches are Kyle's baon to guitar classes this summer

From the Vietnamese banh mi, the Indian vada pav and the Portuguese francesinha to the good old BLT and even ice-cream … the sheer choice of sandwich ingredients is an endless joy. Sandwich never fails to be the most convenient baon in school and perfect snack--you can bring it anywhere and enjoy it anytime. That's why it's such a delight to stumble upon Gardenia's Pocket Sandwich. 

Gardenia Pocket Sandwich actually makes sense for a bread company to come up with an interesting sandwich cut (Yes, dear, sans the brown part that we usually don’t eat!). No fancy bread shape, no color, but interesting taste can be found in the good old fashioned White Bread filling on a clear plastic pack. I won't delve too far into what the sandwich actually look here (you've got to buy the sandwich, you see?) but it is worth noting that it is so convenient plus it actually tastes good.
