4 Ways That Using RideShare Services Can Benefit You

In this contemporary world, you have the benefit of sharing cabs. So, instead of riding alone in a cab, why don't you share one? If everyone does this, there will be less congestion on the roads, allowing people to get to their destinations quicker. Ride sharing also means that you will be sharing the fate of the ride with the other passengers. If everyone shares rides, there will be fewer vehicles on the roads, and if there are fewer vehicles, there will be less production of harmful intoxicants such as smog. The amount of gasoline used will also decrease tremendously. You won't be getting your privacy, but you may just be able to create new bonds with your fellow passengers. Here are 4 ways that using rideshare services can benefit you! For more information on Rideshare, you can visit www.rydely.com

Australian Grassfed Beef On The Menu Culinary Trail 2017- July 20-August 20, 2017

The Australian Embassy of the Philippines, together with Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade), Victorian State Government, and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), proudly presents yet another gastronomic culinary journey, which aims to highlight the Australian Grassfed Beef.

After the success of its first promotion in 2015, Australia in the Philippines finally expanded its campaign to Manila, Cebu and Davao.  From the previous 35 participating restaurants, there are now over 60 partner establishments participating in the second Australian Grassfed Beef on the Menu promotion.


Last week, I was able to join one day of food crawling to some of Manila's top restaurants in this week-long culinary trail. We visited 4 partner restaurants, who each prepared an exclusive menu showcasing the use of Australian grassfed beef.

First on the list was Raging Bull Chophouse & Bar of  Shangri-La at the Fort. After my Canton Road experience, I've always looked forward to trying out more of Shangri-La's in-house specialty restaurants.

Botejyu Authentic Japanese Cuisine Opens Third Branch in Robinsons Galleria

Botejyu, Japan's okonomiyaki pioneer and premier specialty restaurant, recently opened its third branch in Robinsons Galleria. Less than a year since it opened its first branch in SM Mall of Asia and another branch in SM Megamall, Botejyu is already set to continue with its aggressive expansion in the country.


The grand opening was graced by media and celebrity artists under Viva- the master franchisee of Botejyu in the Philippines. 

Everyone was treated to an afternoon of Japanese specialties consisting of Botejyu's signature dishes, and best-selling menu items, that continue to capture the hearts and palate of the Filipinos.

We started off with Osaka's premium Takoyaki All-Star (P245)- a sampler of Botejyu's takoyaki flavors: Original, Umami Sauce & Mayo, Spicy Mentai Mayo, Tomato Sauce, Thick Spicy Sauce, and Salt Garlic.

For each dish, I chose the oil with the right characteristics to give it an unexpected, delectable flavor,” said Chef Massimo.

Hap Chan Seafood Resto- Reintroduction to Classic and Affordable Chinese Cuisine

Long before these Chinese restaurants in Banawe, there was a "Chinatown in Manila" known to be brimming with tea houses, serving traditional, no-frills, and delicious Chinese fare.


Here, you can find the original Chinese restaurants of Manila packed with loyal patrons patiently waiting for their dimsum, noodles, and congee. A cup of tea on one hand, a newspaper on the other, and a Chinese feast laid on the table- it's the usual daily grind in the heart of chinatown. 

One of those restaurants that still exists up until to today, is Hap Chan.


4 Ways That Studying Abroad Can Change Your Life

Studying abroad is a unique opportunity that many young adults do not take advantage of in their lifetime.
