Smile Elephant in Kapitolyo

This time last year I was in Thailand, eating as much Thai food as I can stuff into my mouth. Since that trip, Thai cuisine held a special place in my heart (and my tummy). However, Thai food in Manila seems to be expensive and quite rare. 

I was happy that my friends recommended this small Thai resto discreetly located in Kapitolyo called Smile Elephant. 

The place was quite small and could only accommodate around 20 to 30 people, hence we had to wait outside before we were seated. 

We started with the complimentary appetizer, the sweet and salty nuts and Thai Iced Tea (Php 85).

El Nido Boutique & Art Cafe

The boyfie and I have tried several restaurants in El Nido town proper, but only one managed to impress us. That is El Nido Boutique & Art Cafe. 

The cafe itself is located at the second floor of the building, which also houses a souvenir shop and a travel agency. You'll be asked to leave your shoes at the entrance of the cafe. 

While waiting for our orders to arrive, we were served complimentary bread. 

We started with Mixed Vegetable Salad (Php 130 for small, Php 200 for large), Fresh Lumpia Vegetable Spring Roll (Php 150), and French Fries (Php 110 for regular, Php 130 for large).

Brotzeit German Bier Bar and Restaurant brings the legendary Oktoberfest celebration in Manila for the third time! This mini-festival is complete with FREE-FLOWING BEER and authentic Bavarian cuisine, plus lots of exciting games, music and dancing. 

My foodie friends and I joined the celebration last September 26, where the festivities started as early as 7pm.

ArmyNavy Now Serves Filipino Burrito!

ArmyNavy has always been one of my favorite pig-out places. Who doesn't love their burgers, soft tacos, burritos and other delectable Mexican meals? 

Their burrito is one of their signature dishes, a flour tortilla with Spanish rice, frijoles, onions, letture and cilantro.  From the Steak Burrito to Vegetable Burrito to the Breakfast Burrito, I just can't stop myself from eating one. 

ArmyNavy Burger + Burrito has recently introduced menu items that is more familiar with our taste buds called the PI (Philippine Island) Burrito line. 

The first burrito released from the line is the Adobo Flakes (Php 175), made from chicken adobo flakes, scrambled eggs and Spanish rice.

Snow Caps L-Glutathione and Skin Whitening Soap #WhiteVanity

There are a lot of Glutathione products in the market nowadays, but not all brands offer enzymes as potent as Snow Caps L-Glutathione Capsules

L-Glutathione helps you detoxify your liver from toxins, heavy metals and alcohol. L-Glutathione also helps treat blood disorders. As a "side effect", L-Glutathione reverses the melanin's metabolism, turning dark pigmentation to light pigmentation, hence, a lighter and glowing skin.

Each capsule of Snow Caps L-Glutathione contains 500 mg L-Glutathione, which is 50% more than most brands. It also contains 100 mg Alpha Lipoic Acid and 100mg Vitamin C. 

Here are the few other benefits of taking Snow Caps L-Glutathione:

1. It helps fight aging

L-Glutathione helps eliminate free radicals and oxidative damage, which are the leading causes of aging. It also helps prevent the formation of free radicals, which is more beneficial in the long run. 

2. It boosts immunity

Taking L-Glutathione boosts your body's ability to fight off illnesses and infection. 

3. It fights off inflammation

Our body naturally produces glutathione. However, low levels of glutathione can make our body more prone to severe health problems and chronic pain. L-Glutathione helps maintain protection from chronic inflammatory problems.

All New Dishes and More by Wee Nam Kee!

Singaporean cuisine has always been considered as a mix of different Asian cultures. This is the same reason why Singapore is known for their food. 

Established in 1989 in Singapore, Wee Nam Kee is serving Hainanese Chicken for the past 26 years. Now a global brand, Wee Nam Kee continues to expand both locally and internationally.

We started with drinks: I had the Milo Dinosaur (Php 135) and my friend had the Green Tea Vanilla Freeze (Php 130).
