Assi Fresh Plaza: Assi K-Food Antenna Shop Laguna Sampling Event on December 8

Assi Fresh Plaza is one of the leading Korean groceries in the country with over 17 branches nationwide. Operated by MJ Global Corp., the Korean food store offers almost all your Korean needs. They have premium Korean fruits, noodles, snacks, chips, candies, chocolates, soup and other Korean food products you can think of. Basically, it is a haven of all things Korean.

With Filipinos still high on the Korean fever, Assi Fresh Plaza continuously finds a way to promote not only their Korean products, but the Korean culture in general as well. 

Through Assi Fresh Plaza sampling events, the Korean store is able to share some of their best-selling products to the Filipinos. This is a way to let us have a taste of their Korean goodies which we only often watch from Koreanovelas and movies. 


Assi Fresh Plaza holds a sampling event every month to generate consumer feedback and study Filipino preferences for future product development. The sales promotion aims to let people try their food products, and at the same time generate awareness on other Korean products we might not know of.

New World Makati Hotel Classic Tinghun Package- SO-HONG Chinese Engagement #SOHONGryforLove

Planning our tinghun was both exciting and challenging. We already have an auspicious date, but what's next? It was time to look for a reception venue. We inquired with a lot of restaurants and hotels, and compared all their packages and offers. Being the frugal person that I am, I considered booking suppliers separately on my own thinking that it would save us more than getting a complete package. Good thing we learned about New World Makati's Classic Tinghun Package that basically covers almost all our requirements at a very reasonable price. Add the fact that the food will be prepared by the hotel's in-house Chinese restaurant Jasmine- one of D's family's favorite Chinese restaurants.


And if you are familiar with most Chinese families, you'll know that they prioritize food above anything else when hosting an event or reception. 

With Jasmine's Executive Chef Wong Kam On helming the kitchen for our tinghun, we were confident that we will be in good hands, and that our guests not only will be satisfied with the taste of the dishes, but will also be satisfied with the serving size of the food.

The Great Barrier Reef and Beyond: A Beginner’s Guide to Queensland’s Coast

Queensland is absolutely massive, something most people don't realize until they actually step foot into Australia. It spans from Coolangatta in the south to Cape York in the north and, in all, is about twice the size of Texas. It's also full of adventure and hearty personalities. The main attraction, however, is the incomparable Great Barrier Reef that stretches for 2300 kilometers.

Book a boat trip to get a beautiful look at what lies beneath the water's foamy white caps. There are plenty of chances to explore this world wonder, whether you chose to strap on a snorkel or just get your toes wet. Port Douglas is a particularly great getaway for those trying to see the reef in all its glory. They have both ritzy accommodations and dining to boot. Plus, they have a whole marina of boats ready and waiting for you to see the world and float out to the highlights of the reef.

Eatigo 1K Food Challenge- Eat All You Can Hotpot at Shabu-Shabu Ichiban Banawe

Last week, we took the Eatigo 1K Food Challenge and dined in one of their partner restaurants. The goal was to book a table via Eatigo app and enjoy a meal with only Php1000 budget to spend. It will be easy to do when you are going for a light snack at a nearby cafe or fast food. But when you plan to have lunch or dinner at casual dining restaurant, an eat-all-you-can restaurant even, now that is a challenge.


And when a food challenge gets thrown at us, we foodies never back down. Would you believe that a Php1,000 budget can get two diners a filling meal with drinks and even dessert?

Yes, and we did! With the right app, at the right place at the right time, we enjoyed a sumptuous lunch, an eat all you can meal for that matter, at Shabu-Shabu Ichiban in Banawe.


Booking via Eatigo was easy. I just looked for a restaurant nearby, and chose a time slot with its corresponding discount. Now, we just have to show up at the restaurant on the specified time, and enjoy the discount on our total food bill.


I made a reservation at Shabu-Shabu Ichiban in Banawe for our office lunch out last Friday. It was a bed weather day and so we opted for something to warm our bellies.


I booked the 11:00am timeslot with 30% discount for their Eat & Drink All You Can menu.
