STORY | How I lost 17 kg in one year without starving myself.

One year ago, it was our annual physical exam at work (June 2017). At this time, I’m not feeling well about my weight already. I’m at the point in my life where I’m caged with dark colored clothes and fat jokes. True enough, the arrow pointed to 88 kilograms. Surprise, surprise.  I was told by…

Chocolate Glazed Cake

I’m having a cake sale soon and since we just celebrated Father’s day, I decided to test the new frosting recipe that I discovered. I’m sorry but I can’t share the recipe since I got it from a closed baking group on Facebook.  It was supposed to be thick enough for frosting but I took…

REVIEW: OGANE Korean Restaurant (Tomas Morato)

Egg rolls with seaweed, anyone? Whenever our team craves for Korean food, or if we’re too stressed with our daily grind, there’s just one place to go.

Tonight, I want to hit a spot close to home. Literally. We’re living at a time where the looks of the food is more important rather than its taste. Instagrammable I must say. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that it’s a bad idea. Heck I’m also guilty with this. But sometimes, we tend…

The Food Journey Begins!

I live in the exciting world of journalism. I used the word “exciting” because you never know what’s comes up to your table every time. Documentary, feature or investigative, name it.
