After 10 years of testing, San Pedro BBQ Sauce at Iba pa! has finally engaged in sharing their delicious blend to the public.

It was initially an attempt to come up with a small business of selling barbeque on the streets until people started requesting for buying marinated meat whenever the BBQ store is closed. This triggered the idea of selling the yummy fusion in a bottle.

Salty and sweet with a kick of pepper is the best way to define the San Pedro BBQ Sauce ATBP! experience.

Directions for Use
One bottle of San Pedro BBQ Sauce Atbp! can be used for a max of 1 & ½ KG meat.  You can use pork, chicken or steak.  Pour in 2/3 of the thick sauce to the meat for a minimum of 1 hour or overnight.  Mix the remaining sauce with a small amount of cooking oil and use it for basting. Turn and baste it on both sides while cooking.

Some have tried using it for shrimp dip or as ramen sauce but Salmon is the most recent successful combination.  That’s the reason why is was named “San Pedro BBQ Sauce at Iba pa!”. You can experiment on whichever food you want to use it with. Its shelf life is 1 year.

This product is a must-try because aside from the fact that it makes the dishes more flavorful, it is also made for a good cause - 5 pesos for every bottle sold will be donated to cancer patients.

Here is my own version of pork bbq, roasted in a microwave oven. I marinated the pork which is approximately 400 grams in 1/3 San Pedro BBQ sauce with lemon grass, overnight. I cooked the meat for half an hour. The meat was so tender and has very rich flavor. The combination of salty, sweet and a little spicy taste is just perfect that even kids loved it.

Product Movement
The owners had no idea that people would become obsessed with this divine delicacy and that it could earn more attention than they could ever imagine.   Recently, an offer to manufacture it in the US and Australia is the best news they have received. Indeed, it’s a very promising

Purified Water, Soy Bean Extract, Sea Salt, Black Pepper and Caramel.

Elitech Corporation is one of the major suppliers of quality machines and process supplies of leading Semiconductor Companies in the Philippines for 18 years now. In 2010, the Company ventured to an Educational Theme Park and brought unique attractions from South Korea to the Philippines. Elitech is the first to bring Trick Art Museum and Mirror Maze in the Philippines. To continue the company’s mission to provide outdoor and practical education through School Fieldtrips to our future technical leaders, Elitech Corporation through Creative Science Exhibit Inc. developed new theme parks in Liwasang Darangen CCP Complex Pasay City, i.e. ELITE TECHNO PARK and RAYA.

Elite Techno Park (ETP) was conceptualized two (2) years ago when their engineers and principal investors thought of extending the semiconductor industry to the Filipino students. They have noticed that Semiconductor is very limited in our curriculum which is understandable because of the high cost involved in the facilities and materials. But with the K-12 program of DepEd, they believe that this is the right time to put up this exhibit. Elite Techno Park features the Techno-Vocational Track of K-12 program of the Department of Education in the field of Engineering (Semiconductor, SMT, PCB Assembly and Electronics), Mechanic and Automotive, Air Conditioning, Information Technology (Robotics), Solar Energy and Renewable Resources, Weather Forecasting (Climate Education) and Disaster Awareness and Preparedness. Elite Techno Park has different learning modules for elementary to tertiary level. It provides activities for the visitors to have hands-on experience on each module. It aims to utilize the skills of the students and open job opportunities for them even before their graduation. This will supplement their technical knowledge for their chosen technical courses and this can help them if they opt to enter the corporate world or venture into businesses. Further, all modules will discuss the importance of technology and its contribution to save our Mother Earth.

Elite Techno Park and Raya are located at Liwasang Darangen (in front of World Trade Center), CCP Complex, Pasay City.

MatheMagis Singapore Maths expands in the south as it opened its newest branch in Alabang Town Center.

MatheMagis Singapore Maths is an after-school Singapore Maths enrichment program for kids ages 4 - 12 years. Last November 19, 2016 it announced the opening of its newest branch in Muntinlupa City, which is in an accessible and convenient location that would cater to a number of students from schools situated in the south.

MatheMagis Singapore Maths is based on the internationally-acclaimed and proven effective curriculum and teaching approach established by the Singapore Ministry of Education. The program focuses on equipping children with problem solving and other 21st century skills for independent learning, and conceptual understanding, as opposed to rote learning and memorization, while nurturing their interests in Maths.

In fact, a study published by the UCL Institute of Education and Cambridge University in 2015, showed that children who were taught the Singaporean "math mastery" approach learn faster than their average classmates, making, on average, an extra month of progress in a calendar year.

Singapore Math is acclaimed worldwide for its unique concept progression, complemented by its spiraling and visual way of teaching tools, interesting and meaningful hands on learning experiences, diverse teaching materials, with a personalized, caring approach to teaching that addresses each child's learning needs. Moreover, MatheMagis believes that motivation is key to learning, developing and confidence and achievement.

MatheMagis is not just for Singapore-maths users at school. While Math topics are similar across different schools, non-Singapore Math users at school can learn special Singapore  Math problem solving strategies that they can apply to their own classrooms.

In celebration of its opening, MatheMagis is giving out a free diagnostic assessment and a 2 week free trial for November 2016.

The Alabang branch is open from Mondays to Saturdays: Mondays from 1pm to 7pm, Tuesdays to Fidays from 11am to 7pm and on Saturdays 10am to 5pm.

Mathemagis Singapore Maths currently has 6 branches - Serendra, Cedar Makati, Timog, Katipunan, SM Center and Alabang Town Center. Mathemagis has partner satellite centers around the metropolis.

The Philippines has always been lagging in a lot of things. Fashion, infrastructure, and medicinal breakthrough. This is the main reason why a lot of rich people go abroad to have their pains and illness taken cared of. We don’t have the latest technology nor do we have an advanced know how on what really works and what doesn’t. 

Dr. Ronald Samaniego realized this predicament and decided after over a decade of gaining experience and knowledge in Seattle that the Philippines is where he wants to practice what he has mastered when it comes to physical therapy. He is a doctor of physical therapy who have over 10 years of experience. He also went through one of the most painful things that can happen to your muscle which is an ACL and so he knows what it is like to be on the other side of the fence. 

This is why Active Life Chicago PT was put up. Dr. Ronald Samaniego believes that even when you are going through physical therapy, one can maintain an active lifestyle. He encourages movement and not just letting your muscles rot. He also believes that with the right program, almost anyone can recover from pain and bring back muscles that may have atrophied. 

Active Life Chicago PT currently has over 10 clinics all over the metro which makes them easy to access for commuters. It can be quite challenging for the regular people who simply commute when specialty clinics are located in areas that are hard to get to without a car. This is one of the considerations that Active Life Chicago PT kept in mind and so they put up clinics in Mandaluyong, Quezon Avenue, Caloocan, Alabang, Nuvali, Bulacan, Binondo, Fairview, Makati, BGC, Antipolo, Pasay-Buendia, and Pampanga. 

The good news for HMO holders (Cocolife, Maxicare, Medicard, PhilCare and ValuCare (subject to insurance approval) is that Active Life Chicago PT accepts them. However, they need to abide by the rules and regulations of the specified HMO. Active Life does not use hot packs, TENS, or ultrasound therapy. These are traditional methods that do not bring out results. Active Life is all about results and they want to see it within 3 sessions. As such, they only accept stroke patients within 6 months of the stroke because the longer it takes, the more impossible it is to be treated. 

Active Life is not a miracle worker. They simply apply the latest technology and listen to what the patients complain of. They have video proofs on their Facebook accounts, client testimonials, and paying celebrities who believe in them. For those who are experiencing pain, chronic or otherwise, call call (02) 997-5704 or (0977) 292 2215 for a location near you, and for cost inquiries.

Sometime in June 2013, we had a buffet lunch in Guevarra's by Chef Laudico in San Juan City, with my husband and kids. I was really amazed by the variety of traditional and modern Filipino dishes that are lined up - from appetizers, to the main course and desserts and drinks, for the old and the young ones. What really surprised me is that the place was almost filled up when we arrived at around 12 noon and I started to wonder why, since that was a weekday. The question that puzzled me was answered when we finished one of the most excellent dining experience we've had back then....

 Guevarra's in San Juan City, a 1920's heritage house restaurant and events place

Since then, I became a fan of the Laudico's. I just love how authentic the taste of their dishes are that's why I was really very thankful that after 3 years, I got to taste their dishes and specialties once again, in their newest place Chef Laudico's Feast in SM City Clark Pampanga.

Yes, I never mind traveling to the north (considering I am from the south) with my 2 year-old son, just to spend some hours with my favorite chefs - Jackie and Roland Laudico. The place was inspired by a traditional feast in the province, you can see images of banderitas on the ceiling  and on the upper part of the wall are accents of the local sleeping mats called banig, the one handwoven from buri. Over-all the ambience is friendly, lively and very Pinoy-inspired.

The concept is all about the Filipino's love for fiestas. Chef Jackie, as a certified probinsyana (she came from Iloilo), wants every guest to feel the hospitality and the authenticity of our country's fiesta culture and celebration wherein cooks start cooking from scratch. They want to promote a place for local and international dishes free from instant seasonings or magical powdered chemicals as a way of making the dishes more flavorful. Chefs Jackie and Roland believe that as professional chefs, it is their duty to provide people the heritage of the food. Basically they source their ingredients from local suppliers and if not available inside the country, that is the only time they import. It is their principle not to hide the real flavors of the food, no shortcuts in cooking. They promote respect to the quality of the ingredients and the preservation of the true Filipino flavor.

#TeamSantiago with Chefs Jackie & Roland

What differs Chef Laudico's Feast from their other restaurants is that the dishes they serve here are fusion of local and international cuisines - Japanese, Korean, Chinese, American, Italian, Spanish & more. They will serve you over a hundred dishes on a buffet lunch or dinner, some of the dishes you can't find in their restos around the metro.

Here are some of the dishes from the new home of their food masterpieces...

 Japanese section - maki, sushi, etc
I really loved the wasabi, it's pure but not too spicy...

Meats - Bagnet, roasted Angus beef and more! 

Deep-fried - tempura, crunchy lumpia etc.

Cheese and sandwiches

home-made kesong puti

Sweets, deserts, fresh fruits and many more!

Chef Jackie is the one in-charge for the deserts and sweets

Seafoods and a lot more!

I love sea foods and anything Japanese that why I really enjoyed their maki and sushi and the crabs and shrimps, but what surprised me a lot was the grilled Tuna. It was really sweet and mouthwatering, tastes like it was just freshly caught and cooked alive!

These are just "teaser" of what to expect from Chef Laudico's Feast. Once you visited the place, you will drool over the palatable dishes that they serve. They almost have everything you need to satisfy your cravings for real good food.

Watch Chefs Jac and Roland invite everyone to come and visit their newest venture in the north!
