All Clean!
Are you all clean? Clean on the inside and the outside?

We were taught to be always clean since we were kids. At home or in school,  we were taught on how to take a bath, brush our teeth, comb our hair and stay prim and presentable at all times. Hygiene is very important in our health, but what most people forget to teach is, being clean on the inside especially our colon, which is most important. Worry no more because FatOut can help with that.

FatOut can help make your digestive system more effective. When our colon is cleansed it pushes out undigested waste, clearing the way and helping you absorb good nutrients better. With a healthy colon your digestive system allows you to easily pass undigested waste through your system which can result to having lesser risk of other digestive problems and disorder and also help in weight loss.

FatOut has the revolutionary Sweep and Shred Formula which helps in cleansing your colon and trimming down your fat. Psyllium Husk sweeps and cleanses toxins in your colon while Green Tea Extract shreds and burns your fat. FatOut eliminates hard-to-digest fats and helps detoxify the colon. It nourishes the digestive system that can help in proper bowel movement and digestion. The Sweep and Shred formula can help you lose the pounds without putting your health at risk. 

Note that, FatOut is not a medicinal drug and is not used to treat the symptoms of any disease.
FatOut should be taken daily, before every meal, preferably with a warm glass of water. It is available at all Mercury Drug stores and other leading drugstores nationwide for SRP P125.00 per capsule.

Sunnies Studios is the go-to source for fun and easy eyewear. Their idea started from making eyewear that are equally stylish and accessible. They design pairs for everyone to enjoy.

Here are my top 5 picks from their shop and my idea on how and what to pair with it.

The browline takes on a rounded cat eye silhouette in the Dolly, UV 400 protection. Available in Black Matte Dark Green, Jet Black Dark Purple Gradient, Cocoa, Dark Tort and Powder. This is perfect for long distance travel. It will fully protect the eyes from dusts and sun rays.

3. Tibby, P 499.00
The metal rim and temple of the Tibby lend elegance to these oversized frames. Available in Jet Black. I think this goes well with office wear - skirts, slacks - semi formal look.

Update your glasses to the Cassidy. These contemporary Specs feature a subtle cat eye frame and metal arms. Available in Clear Mirror. This is for those who want to be always looking fresh and clean, very classy.

We Filipinos are known for our non­confrontational nature. Often, we don’t say how we truly feel­­ whether we have a crush on someone or if we’re upset with a co­worker. Keeping our emotions to ourselves can have negative effects. It can cause stress and tension in our personal and professional relationships.

That’s why Veems​, Pinoy’s new favorite social app, released a new feature that allows people to express their feelings easily. How? You can do it via the “Secret SMS” feature on Veems. The feature allows users to send free anonymous SMS to anyone in their phone’s contact, even if they are not on Veems.

The catch? Users can only send pre­loaded messages. The messages are categorized according to people’s most common emotions: miss, upset, regret, and of course, love. For example, if you have a crush on someone at work, you can secretly send, “I can’t wait to see you at work.” Or if you admire someone and you’re quite shy to tell them in person, you can send, “You inspire me.”

Step 1. Pick from the pre-loaded messages.
Step 2.  Choose the recipient from your phone contacts.
3. Send your anonymous message to anyone for free.

When your contact receives the SMS, they will see a portion of the message. When they click the link, they will see the entire message and will have the option to download Veems in order for them to guess who sent the message.

I actually, received one, saying I have the sexiest smile and I was like "whoaaa!" Some people I met before told me I have a beautiful smile but sexiest, it's the first time. Anyways, I am flattered and thank you whoever you are...

The team behind Veems hopes that it is a first step for allowing people to discuss their feelings. Sometimes we’re scared to express our true emotions because we’re scared or afraid to be judged. Letting someone know how we feel anonymously can be a liberating feeling. Download Veems and start sending those Secret SMS.

Despite continuous studies for the treatment of dengue, the mosquito-borne disease remains to be incurable. Since the epidemic outbreak that started in the Philippines and Thailand in the 1950s, 64 years later, the best discovery to address the deadly fever is still insufficient. While there is a vaccine that is formulated to prevent dengue, its efficacy is yet to be fully tested nor is it available to the public. We are left with no other choice but to rely on prevention.

However, just last year, a new type of dengue is discovered. This means that the new strain is more capable of enduring the body’s mechanism, making it stronger and harder to cure. With all these threats coming despite the progress in finally developing the treatment, still, it does not erase the people’s apprehension in having the disease.

While there is a vaccine that is formulated to prevent dengue, its efficacy is yet to be tested. We are left with no other choice but to fully protect ourselves from having this disease.

Coffee is an essential part of our day to day living. As a stay-at-home Mom, I would always want to start my day with a cup of hot instant coffee. It's convenient because I would only have to pour hot water and a sachet of my favorite instant coffee and there I go! I can kickstart my day...

But many times I get tired of drinking instant coffee again and again, so I decided to buy my own coffee maker. I can have my own blend with it and I can personalize my own coffee, depending on my mood.

Before I buy one, I looked for tips on buying the best coffee maker that suits my needs, online. That is where I found out about The Coffee Makers List. The site helped me look for the best coffee maker based on specifications, usability and price. They don't sell coffee, they are dedicated in investing and researching till the bottom by testing many coffee makers and making a list by rating them on different criterion.

So if you're thinking of owning a coffee brewer, visit their site and make a wise investment...

NIU is the sixth establishment of Vikings Group since its arrival in the Philippines way back 2011. It is located at the 6th floor of SM Aura in Bonifacio Global City Taguig. It is called NIU (means nine in the Vikings language) because it holds nine different stations of appetizing dishes and meals to feast on.

We arrived the place at around 12 noon for the buffet lunch, the place is more than half-filled of visitors already. With me is my husband and my kid who is 1.5 year old. We were welcomed warmly with the staff, with big smiles on their faces. After checking our reservation, a very friendly woman in late 40's, maybe, escorted us to our table.

Meet my date - the two "Alberts" of my life, yes both of them had the best lunch ever, even Little Albert enjoyed the food and his favorites were the pizzas, the siomai, the cakes and the fruit juices. Big Albert, being a meativore, enjoyed the seafood, the lamb and the beef dishes, and of course he surely loved the unlimited wine.

I started my new and exciting dining experience on their first station, which are mostly appetizers. I found these - Black Seafood rice and vegetable stacked & pulled grass fed Lamb leg in Lindor Port Wine Sauce - one of their Valentine specialties. I got so excited with the black rice because I am a seafood addict. The Lamb Leg is something you wouldn't forget, how I wished they would include this among the regular dishes they serve.

 ...and this truffle chicken with pumpkin puree and foie grass - chicken is so tender and tasty, puree is so flavorful!

I filled my plate with the black seafood rice, truffle chicken, lamb leg, some baked potatoes, small slices of asado pizza, stromboli and siomai with the guava lemonade for my drink. The guava lemonade caught my attention for its color but that's not all, it is very good, tastes like fresh pink guavas, it took me back to my childhood days when I was picking ripe guavas in our backyard...

All of their juices are actually must-try, like the papaya carrot. You will definitely enjoy the unlimited drinks!

When I go back to our table, they served PORK BELLY in LINDOR dark chocolate bbq glaze which is also among their special menu for Valentine's Day and the coated shrimp with special sauce (that I forgot to ask the name of the dish for I was really excited to eat already). They served these to me because our
#AVerySweetLoveAffair date is hosted by a blogger. Thanks, Ruthilicious! The pork belly melts in the mouth and the sauce is really indescribable. One thing for sure you'll fall in love with it...

 I enjoyed this coated shrimp, too, the sauce made the shrimp more delicious...

Whenever I visit buffet restaurants, I never forget to visit the Japanese section. I just love maki so much and NIU has a lot to offer! The Teriyaki Maki is one of my new discoveries...

The freshly baked oysters completed my NIU Vikings experience. Only few buffet restaurants offer this, so I grab the opportunity to feast on it, glad I did not suffer gastrointestinal problem afterwards...

What I got for the desert? My all-time favorite halo-halo and some slices of cakes. They have a very nice presentation of their limited edition cakes for Valentine. You will really crave for more.

My favorite among the delectable cakes - Love Triangle. It is a small piece of cake with 3 layers - the LINDOR ganache, the hazelnut buttercream and the coffee diplomat cake. It's really a temptation. A piece or two will not satisfy you...

I never really got to try everything because I was sooo full and already satisfied. Here are some more of the stations:

Indulge with your favorite ice cream! They are colorful and yummy! I guess the must-try here are the pistachio and the sesame ice cream...

And oh, unlimited wines and draft beer, drown yourself...

Before I end my #NIUandExciting food and dining experience, let me tour you inside...

Yes, I may have missed my favorite Filipino foods, like crispy pata, kare-kare and sisig to name a few, at NIU, because they serve only very few of it but the unique dishes and the very good services they gave us is A+. Every dish really made us drool. NIU Vikings let us experience one-of-a-kind dining...

How about you, what is your best dining experience so far?
