Freshness is one of the most important characteristics to watch out for when shopping for your next bag of coffee beans. I can't stress just how important freshly-roasted, whole coffee beans are especially because coffee tends to lose much of its flavor after a month from roasting and a few seconds after grinding. As coffee lovers around the Philippines get better coffee education, a number of roasters have been moving online in an effort to get freshly-roasted coffee in homes around the country. The Northern Taste Coffee Company, by far, sells the most affordable coffee beans of the bunch!
All the coffee that the company sells comes from North Luzon in Cordillera Administrative Region. So that's coffee from Benguet, Sagada, and Kalinga. All the single origin coffee beans are hand-picked to ensure the quality of each coffee bag delivered.
You can check out their website for their selection of coffee beans, but if you'd like to know my two cents then continue reading on...

When one hears of Shangri-La, images of luxury, sophistication, and grandeur often come to mind. Dishes served by Shangri-La restaurants are no different. Indeed, the finest dining experiences in the country will likely be in the handful of Shangri-La hotels across the country given the hotel's knack for excellence.
This was one reason why I had high expectations of Raging Bull Chophouse & Bar as soon as I found out that they had already opened their doors inside the beautiful Shangri-La at the Fort. I expected nothing less than the Shangri-La experience that the hotel is known for. True enough, Raging Bull exceeded my every expectation by providing spectacular service and delicious food.
Here's what you can expect when dining at the Raging Bull Chophouse & Bar...

How time flies, Krispy Kreme Philippines already turns 10 this November 30, 2016. In a spirit of celebration, they're offering a limited edition pre-assorted dozen for just Php 299. This pre-assorted dozen would cost Php 510 if you bought these doughnuts piece per piece. Seeing that a dozen Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnuts cost Php 330, I still consider this a steal!
The promotion runs from November 25, 2016 to December 11, 2016 and is available in almost all Krispy Kreme stores nationwide (with the exception of NAIA and MOA Arena stores).

I'm very excited to let all of you know that Yellow Cab Philippines is bringing back their Two Pizza Friday Promotion this month. You can now get two 10" Signature Yellow Cab Pizzas for just Php 560 at any Yellow Cab store. The promo is valid for dine-in, take-out, and delivery every Friday!
They changed up the signature pizzas that you can order from the promo from last time (too bad they took out Roasted Garlic and Shrimp!) by limiting the signature pizzas that you can choose from.
I know it's not as upscale as Peperoni Pizzeria's specials this November, but it's a nice cheap way to get your hands on some delicious Yellow Cab pizza.

Jollibee is one of the country's top fast-food chains and the brand's rise to the top is because of a deep understanding of the Filipino palate. They understand what Filipinos crave for and offer it in a way that's not to heavy on the pocket. I think every Filipino kid, for some time, begged their parents for a Jollibee chicken joy meal all the time!
This time around, Jollibee is introducing a delicious new twist to it's classic Jollibee Sundae. Think vanilla ice cream that's topped with sweet marshmallows, crushed peanuts and drizzled with loads of chocolate fudge. The Rocky Road Overload Sundae is Jollibee's latest dessert that's perfect for sweet tooths out there.
