My fave Destination

Hello beautiful friends!

We all have our favorite destination , mine is Hongkong. What’s yours?

5 reasons why I love Hongkong :

1. Hongkong has a very special place in my heart because it’s the first country I travelled solo.

2. No visa needed for Philippine Passport holders

3. Lots of available promo flights

4. Not a very long trip

5. Last but not the least , I love Hongkong Disneyland.

Hoping to go back soon for a week or two because the first time I was there I only spent few days. It’s not enough.

I’m planning to book my tickets at www.skyscanner.com.ph for cheap flights.

Have a great day!

Besos ,

7Grains for a Healthier and All Natural Food Swap

***Healthy goodies were from 7grainspantry***

    Being healthy is  great blessing. But we need  to do our part to stay healthy.

    When I was in High School  I’ve been hospitalized due to typhoid fever. I easily get sick before. Since then, my parents encouraged  me to eat healthy, more fruits and vegetables to boost my immune system.

    In my teenage years I  preferred  fried foods and junk foods but as time goes by I started to love  healthy foods. I appreciate healthy and nutritious  foods in my 20’s. I’m not  a vegetarian or vegan. I eat different kinds of food but I know my limitations. Balance meal , right amount of everything is the secret.

   You don’t need to deprive yourself from eating what you want. The secret is self discipline.

    Make the right choices of food, do some  recipe experiment, and enjoy  what you are eating.

    I’m so excited to try some recipes using my 7grains healthy goodies.

   I’ve tried the peanut butter. It taste so  good , made of freshly roasted peanuts and coconut sap sugar.

LRM_EXPORT_20180121_173954.jpg

   I love the veggie chips. To those who don’t love vegetables  I’m sure you will love the Skinny Veggie Chips of 7grainspantry . So crunchy and flavorful.

BASILIO PHILIPPINE COFFEE TO SHARE

LRM_EXPORT_20180119_081656.jpg

• SINGLE BREW SETS WERE FROM BASILIO COFFEE  •

Hola Beautiful Friends!

Just a quick question, Do you love coffee?

     To be honest I learned to love  coffee  last year when I started to work as a call center agent. Coffee helps to keep me awake and energize . Just last week I had the privilege to taste  Basilio Coffee, its different from all coffees I’ve tasted. Basilio Coffee is  not just an ordinary coffee , the  aroma can change your mood and it  taste so  real  and pure.

    What I love the most is that Basilio Coffee supports local  farmers. Farmers can earn more, the produce of  coffee will increase and lessen the importation of  coffee here in the Philippines .

      So why choose  imported coffee if we have our very own Basilio Coffee?

     I’m not an excuse to this because I love imported products but since I started blogging I realized that Philippines has so many great products to offer.

   About Basilio Coffee

     Basilio Coffee, under Bote Central, Inc., a family-owned corporation established in March 22, 2002. The company aims to clean and save the environment by using agro-forest products for livelihood. At present, the company is focused on the joint production and consumption program of Philippine coffee, rationalizing the supply chain and embedding Fair Trade principles to promote the industry’s sustainability.

     Basilio coffee is air-roasted, using a Filipino patented invention, making sure that the inherent flavors and aroma of the coffee come out with every smell and sip. In the same fashion as the selection of beans, roasting is also a technique and art which is meant to satisfy each customer preference either for a light, medium, or dark roast.
Basilio coffee currently offers three standard blends: Tinatangi (Special) blend: 60% Arabica, 30% Robusta, and 10% Exelsa, with each bean variety roasted according to market preference. The blend of three beans gives it distinction and turns an ordinary occasion of drinking coffee into something unique. Muni-muni (Deep in Thought) blend is 90% Robusta, 10% Arabica. Robusta has the highest caffeine content. Dalisay (Pure) blend is 100% Arabica with two roast profiles of medium and medium dark. Arabica is flavorful and aromatic. (http://taste.company/uncategorized/locale-coffee-scene/)

Blends I’ve tried Dalisay and Muni Muni

LRM_EXPORT_20180119_081750.jpg

Dalisay

100% Pure Arabica with two different roast profiles sourced from two different communities. Best consumed black to appreciate flavors and aroma.

MUNI MUNI

90% Robusta, 10% Arabica.

Definitely a cup with caffeine rush. Best consumed with creamer and sugar.
