Five Favorites

It’s so freakin’ hot in Manila! I mean, what is up with the weird weather? Sala sa ulan, sala sa jinit!

Personally, I have no desire to go out unless it’s for work or to celebrate with friends or date night with Tom. I’d rather cocoon in the house and read. I also started organizing my plato-platuhan (tableware) as our newly refurbished sideboard (it looks fabulous!!!!!!! I will show it to you one of these days.) has been delivered plus, Tom has already finished painting my china closet. I’m so excited!

Let’s pray for cooler weather sans the storm and flooding, shall we?

Here are some of my favorite things:

1. Porter Magazine. Just when I’ve shifted to digital magazines, comes Porter – the global fashion magazine you have dreamed of, powered by Net-A-Porter.com.

I’ve always been partial to square-shaped magazines. It’s one of the few printed magazines that I buy. The text and layout of Porter is also easy on the eyes. The fashion styling is directional, aspirational but relatable. I lav et!

The world’s best fashion, authoritative beauty and inspiring travel and culture, curated in one luxurious glossy package.

Unfortunately, Porter Magazine is not yet sold in the Philippines. You have to beg friends to buy abroad. You can also subscribe here.

2. Kavali Hearty Thick Whole Grain Crisp Bread. Best crackers for cheeses and super healthy too!

Available in Healthy Options

3. Potterybarn Brass and Inlaid Bone Cheese Knives. Love the style of these cheese knives and the bone inlays give a cool and luxurious feel to the handles.

Potterybarn is located at Bonifacio High Street

They’re made of brass metal so they won’t tarnish.

4. Sala Bistro’s Casarecce with Porcini, Guanciale and Truffle Cream. Cooked homemade loosely rolled up pasta with the combination of cured pork cheeks and truffle cream is divine. Pair it with the restaurant’s House White Wine for an Italian flair experience. Ang sarap. Sarap. Sarap.

Sala Bistro is at Greenbelt 3

5. Snapware™ Eco Flip and Eco Grip. My children are big on hydration while I’m conscious of dirt and bacteria. Loving these Snapware™ Glass Beverage Bottles that are made from durable and safe glass material (BPA-free and FDA approved), that is stain, shatter and odor-resistant. The neoprene and silicon sleeves provide more protection from physical breakage and for a more comfortable grip. Best part? It’s eco-friendly!

You can buy them at Kitchen World, Eastwood Mall, Libis

Lunchbox Idea: Tuna With Lemon Cilantro Quinoa

As promised, I’m sharing with all of you some of my favorite quinoa (pronounced as “KEEN-wa”) recipes and lunchbox ideas.

My daughter Aryanna grew up bringing packed meals to school. She’s now in college and she still prefers homecooked packed meals over fast food (except dessert. Cinnamon rolls, cupcakes, cheesecakes and cookies are her Achilles Heel! Haaay, Aryanna!).

One of her favorite quinoa dishes that I prepare is simple, tasty and packed with nutrients:

Tuna With Lemon Cilantro Quinoa

Ingredients:

cooked quinoa (recipes here and here)
1 can of tuna or fresh tuna, cooked in the pan with olive oil and seasoned with salt & pepper
1-2 wedges of fresh lemon
cilantro, chopped

Step 1: Top the cooked quinoa with the tuna (drained).

Step 2: Squeeze fresh lemon juice on the tuna and quinoa and garnish with fresh cilantro.

That’s it pancit!

This lunchbox meal is easily prepared and it’s a healthier option than most cafeteria food. I also recommend this for office workers who want to eat healthier and save money.

Shoppingero/shoppingera, tune in for my next quinoa recipe. You don’t want to miss it!

Fried Garlic Pepper Quinoa

It’s hard for us Filipinos not to eat rice. The problem about eating white rice is that it is high in sugar. Quinoa (pronounced as “KEEN-wa”) is a healthier substitute to rice.

Compared to white rice, quinoa has a nutty flavor. The texture is also grainy like couscous. If you’re used to eating white or brown rice it might take a while for the palate to get used to the flavor. I find that one of the best ways to introduce quinoa into your diet is to try a recipe that is familiar and tastes good.

You’ll love this:

Fried Garlic Pepper Quinoa

This is the quinoa version of our favorite garlic rice.

Ingredients:

leftover cooked quinoa (click here for basic quinoa recipe)
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
4-5 cloves of garlic, chopped
salt
pepper

Easy peasy:

Step 1: Fry the garlic in extra virgin olive oil

Step 2: Add the cooked quinoa (preferably day old cooked quinoa)

Step 3: Season with a generous amount of pepper. Add salt to taste.

Step 4: Serve with a smile. :)

Happy healthy eating!

The Power Of Quinoa

What is quinoa (pronounced as “keen-wah,” not “kwin-oh-ah”)?

Quinoa, a species of goosefoot, is a grain crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, as it is not a member of the true grass family. Wikipedia

"The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has officially declared that the year 2013 be recognized as "The International Year of the Quinoa." Proposed by the government of Bolivia and receiving strong support from many Central and South American countries, quinoa has now been singled out by the FAO as a food with "high nutritive value," impressive biodiversity, and an important role to play in the achievement of food security worldwide. We realize that quinoa remains unfamiliar to many people, especially in the practical sense of cooking and recipes. But we hope that situation will change, given the remarkable nature of this easily-prepared, nutrient-rich food." - whfoods.org

Quinoa is a miracle seed. It has been part of my family’s diet for almost three years now. We cook it on a regular basis. The look and texture is similar to couscous. It is a healthier alternative to rice (yup, it’s healthier than brown rice). We like quinoa for is versatility, its ability to take on the flavors it’s cooked with, and its impressive health profile. I can tell you that we’re reaping the health benefit of it.

Loves it:

• It’s gluten-free
• Low in Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Manganese.
• 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa = 111 calories only
• It’s a super food
• Tastes yummy
• Easy to cook
• Super duper healthy

Benefits of quinoa:

- Blood sugar control. If you have diabetes, keeping control of your blood glucose levels is key. A healthy diet that includes quinoa has been clinically shown to reduce free glucose levels, leading to fewer sudden spikes in blood sugar during the day.

- Cardiovascular health. Rich in manganese and fibre, quinoa helps to support the activities of the cardiovascular system. Regularly eating quinoa can lead to lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol and higher HDL or “good” cholesterol. The seed is also shown to normalize blood sugar levels.

- Increased protein. Protein is essential to building strong muscle tissue and supplying the body with energy. Quinoa contains all of the essential amino acids necessary to manufacture proteins as well as lean protein in its raw form. This makes quinoa an excellent addition to the diet, particularly for vegetarians looking for animal-free protein sources.

- Digestive health. The fibre found in quinoa assists with digestion and can help prevent indigestion. The seed also helps decrease the frequency of bouts of constipation.

- Lessening symptoms of anaemia. Rich in iron, quinoa is an excellent addition to the diet of those with anaemia. Iron is essential to carrying oxygen through the body, so many people find that adding quinoa to the diet gives them greater endurance and energy during workouts.

- Fighting signs of aging. Manganese is a powerful antioxidant that helps to slow down the aging process by destroying free radicals. As a result, quinoa is good for those concerned about the appearance of their skin.

True colors: There are three most widely cultivated and available quinoa: white, red, and black. Some companies sell packs in combinations.

I find that the red quinoa holds its shape and texture more than the white ones.

How to cook quinoa:

Cooking quinoa is just like cooking rice. It is the easiest no-fuss “grain” you’ll ever cook.

Basic Quinoa Recipe:
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups water or chicken/vegetable broth
Bring quinoa and liquid to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Yield: 3 cups cooked quinoa
Serving size: 1/2 cup
Nutrition per serving: 111 calories, 2 g fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 4 g protein, 3 g fiber.

Easy peasy:

Step 1: Quinoa grows with a bitter, protective coating called saponin that is, luckily, easily rinsed off.

Tip: Use a strainer to rinse out the small seeds.

Step 2: To cook quinoa, you simply add the liquid of choice, cover and simmer over low heat until done. The ratio is 2 cups of water or other cooking liquid to 1 cup of quinoa. Water is the easiest, cheapest and healthiest choice as it’s lowest in sodium.

Tip: I bring the water to a boil then simmer in low heat for 10-15 minutes. You will know when the quinoa is done because it will look like it has popped open.

Step 3: Using a fork, fluff the quinoa when cooked.

Step 4: Serve with a smile! :)

Note: You can also use a rice cooker to cook quinoa.

I buy quinoa in Healthy Options and S&R.

Shoppingero/shoppingera, tune in as I will share some of my favorite quinoa recipes and lunchbox ideas soon! HUMANDA KAYO!

Found: Pretty Plunger

I know what you’re thinking? Toilet plunger?! Go ahead, chuckle if you must but the reality is clogged toilet bowls happen. You know the scenario: The flush doesn’t sound right and you get that sinking feeling. You turn and see the water is just not going down or the water is all gone and not refilling. Worse, there is a clump of toilet paper and the water slowly rises to the brim. This is when you hit the point of no return and all the bells and whistles go off your head. Nooooooooo!

It is stressful (and embarrassing) to deal with a clogged toilet. Somehow it seems to happen exactly when you are expecting company.

I find that the toilet plungers available in the Philippines are not as effective compared to the ones sold in the States. It’s the way the rubber is shaped and the quality of it. The ones I see in the grocery are mostly sink plungers and made from flimsy material. What’s the point? You need a proper toilet plunger with a sturdy rubber that tappers in the bottom so that it can fit the toilet bowl hole. It’s also hard to find a nice looking plungers.

Here are some cool (and effective) plungers available on Amazon:

InterDesign Brushed Stainless Steel Plunger Capsule, White

OXO Good Grips Toilet Plunger and Canister

Simplehuman Toilet Plunger

We just finished renovating our powder room in the new Maison Epperson. Tom and I put a lot of thought in designing the space to make the rest room experience comfortable for family and guests.

We believe that one way to create pleasantries in the powder room is to provide a plunger.

Sitting pretty. InterDesign Brushed Stainless Steel Plunger Capsule, White from Amazon.com

I bought the InterDesign Brushed Stainless Steel Plunger on Amazon last week and it arrived at my doorstep in less than 5 days. Amazing! What I love about this particular style is that the stainless dome cover lifts and locks in place. The plastic base also keeps the plunger head off the floor (it’s more hygienic that way).

Have a pleasant day!

Easy Creamy, Garlic-y Caesar Salad Dressing

Have you ever tried making your own salad dressing? If not, you’re missing out on some great flavors.

Making your own salad dressing from scratch tastes better than bottled ones. It’s healthier too as you have control of what goes in it.

During my birthday dinner at Cru Steakhouse in Manila Marriott Hotel, I ordered their signature Caesar Salad prepared tableside. This was not the first time I ordered this salad and I was reminded why it had become one of my favorite dishes in the resto.

One of my favorite dishes is the CRU Caesar Salad. It is prepared tableside using the freshest ingredients and the dressing is made from scratch! So elegant. Rina has been our constant server whenever we're here. Excellent service as usual!

Photo taken using Instagram

I got inspired to make my own homemade caesar salad dressing and I’m happy to share it with all of you!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup extra virgin oil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 egg yolks or for kids, substitute with 1 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise (I suggest Hellman’s brand)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste or 4-5 anchovy fillets
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
1 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces

The details make the difference

To assure that you get the creamiest and most garlic-y flavor, here are my non-negotiables:

Use grainy Dijon mustard. I recommend Waitrose Easy On The Dijon Whole Grain Mustard. I love the grainy bits and the tangy flavor of this particular mustard. Available in Rustan's Marketplace

If you've never tried adding Worcestershire sauce in your caesar salad dressing, now is the time to do it. It gives depth of flavor and adds to the garlic-y taste (the ingredients of the sauce include soy, vinegar, and garlic). Available in all leading groceries

Only use fresh Parmesan cheese. Don't even think about using the bottled version. The intense, complex Parmigiano Reggiano is a cheese like no other.

Cool kitchen gadget: Garlic press

This kitchen aid cuts down chopping time! Moms and cooks will thank me for this.

A garlic press is a kitchen tool, consisting basically of two levers connected by a hinge. There are small cups on the end of the levers opposite the hinge that nest inside each other. To use, separate the levers, place a clove of garlic in the cup, and then close the other lever on top of the garlic. Press the levers together and the garlic will fall through very small holes in the bottom of the cup. The garlic press is ideal to use when recipes call for "very finely minced garlic."

Easy peasy:

Step 1: In a wooden bowl, whisk extra virgin oil, Parmesan cheese, egg yolks, Dijon mustard, garlic, anchovy paste, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper until smooth; season with salt if necessary.

Step 2: Drizzle dressing over romaine lettuce in a large mixing bowl; toss to coat.

Skip the croutons and bacon. You can also add fresh tomatoes if you wish.

Reminder: Don’t use raw egg yolks if you’re planning to serve this to kids. Best to use egg substitutes or mayonnaise.

Shoppingero/shoppingera, try it and let me know how you like my recipe!

Add To Cart: La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Hand Cream SPF 15

The first time I tried the La Prairie White Caviar collection I loved it! In fact, I’ve become a disciple.

Of all the La Prairie products White Caviar collection has become my favorite. I like that it’s light, non-sticky and the luminous effect it gives my skin. Every time I apply it on my face and hands, they literally glow!

Hands have the tendency to betray your age, sometimes appearing more aged than the skin of the face. Exposure to the elements may result in age spots, lines and an unappealing dry, weathered look. White Caviar Illuminating Hand Cream SPF 15 brightens, refines and hydrates skin for a younger, fresher look while guarding against daily exposure with UVA/UVB protection.

Tip: To avoid wastage (especially using La Prairie) and if you don't want any lotion/cream on your palms, apply the cream on the back of one of your hands then rub the backs of your hands together in a circular motion. This way, you only moisturize the top part of your hands which need the most anyway.

La Prairie products are quite pricey as it’s made from the best ingredients. I make sure that I don’t waste a single drop. Dapat simutin! LOL

I also like the White Caviar Illuminating Eye Cream. It gives my face a radiant glow. I have yet to try their Serum. I heard it’s like magic! I think we all need a bit of magic in our lives, don’t you think?

La Prairie White Caviar Collection is available at Rustan’s Department Stores

High-Tops That Add “Height”

Skechers SKCH+3 high-cut rubber shoes have become an #OOTD staple on Instagram. It’s not surprising as these cool kicks effortlessly increase in height with a 3” hidden wedge without compromising the comfort that all women desire. While they may look like ordinary high-top sneakers, there’s a hidden wedge that will lift your heel a few inches higher off the ground. Yes ladies, nabibili na ang height ngayon! LOL

I have this style of Skechers SKCH Plus 3 and it's my favorite! I like that it's all-black and with grommets.

Walk the walk: The padded wedge in the rubber shoes makes it very comfy. Moms will still be able to outrun their toddlers wearing them, haha.

Nude-colored shoes in general elongates the look of your legs plus, a hidden wedge inside the high-tops gives you extra boost!

Sassy straps: Loving the three hook-and-loop straps across the vamp as it elongates the sneakers and secures the high-tops in place.

The ultimate Fall shoes! Black and studs are this season's musts!

The latest styles of Skechers SKCH+3 collection for women features a wide range of choices that can be worn every day. Add flair to your dress, jeans, leggings, short, or skirt ensemble with the SKCH+3 and you’re good to go!

SKCH+3 is also made with various materials such as smooth leather, woven canvas, lace, suede, and faux leather. Also available in new colors such as wine, black, gold, taupe, plum, navy, rose, aqua, and chestnut—it’s almost impossible not to have a SKCH+3 to mix & match with your wardrobe.

Skechers SKCH+3 are available at Skechers stores in Glorietta 2, Trinoma, SM Mall of Asia, Robinsons Galleria, SM North Edsa – The Annex, Ayala Fairview Terraces, Robinsons Place Manila, Lucky Chinatown Mall, Market! Market!, Festival Mall, SM Fairview, SM Dasmariñas, Marquee Mall, SM Pampanga, Ayala Center Cebu, SM City Cebu, Abreeza Mall Davao, Gaisano Mall of Davao, SM Davao, Centrio Mall Cagayan de Oro, and LimKetKai Mall CDO.

Living and Loving the City Life

Growing up in Laguna had its perks: the clean air, privacy and tranquility, feeling closer to nature, open space, the ability to produce your own food, friendlier people, slow-paced life and low crime rate. I loved it. But as I got older and began working in the city, it became stressful because of commuting.

Photo by Tom Epperson

Have you heard of the term “extreme commuting”? According to Wikipedia, as defined by the United States Census Bureau, an extreme commute is a daily journey to work that takes more than 90 minutes each way.

My St. Scho College, Manila classmates and thesis partners: (from left) Abbey, Grace, Miriam, Maya & Jayzel. Photo from Abegaile Dinglasan

After I graduated, I was fortunate enough to land my first job in one of the country’s best advertising agencies. I was part of the creative team and worked long hours. This entailed commuting back and forth to Laguna everyday which also meant spending hours sitting in traffic. I did this for a year, and I’ve never felt more drained and tired in my life.

Commuting took its toll on my body, so I decided to resign. It was one of the more challenging decisions I made in my life as I loved my job. But living in the suburbs at that time seemed more practical.

On hindsight, I think it would have been a wiser decision for me to live in the city and pursue my career in advertising. But anyway, after years of extreme commuting and wasted time sitting in traffic, I finally decided to make the big move. It was the best decision I’ve made. I honestly believe that had I stayed in Laguna, I would not have been as successful in pursuing my dreams. I’m not saying that living in the city is for everyone, but it definitely is for me. For years now, I have been living and loving city life!

For those who hail from the suburbs, yet pursuing a career or starting a business in the city and suffering from hours on end spent in traffic, I truly feel you. If there is one advice I could share with you, that is to pursue your dreams and invest your time and money by making it happen. Do it while you are young.

In my youth, living in the South was my comfort zone, yet I left it in order to pursue my dreams. I got a place in Makati City and have been living in this wonderful urban jungle since. And the best part is that instead of working for my dream advertising company, I now work with them. I am so glad I took the leap back then.

I wish I invested the money I made from my first job in a condominium instead of buying a car only to drive in traffic going home to Laguna. I would have saved time and money commuting.

I met up last week with Vice-President for Megaworld Eugene Lozano. We talked over coffee about our experiences in commuting while pursuing our big city dreams and how we should have invested on a flat early on. According to Eugene, “A smart investment like this allows one to live a life uncompromised. To be able to have everything within reach in a matter of minutes is a privilege and a practicality that’s understated. If you live close to where you work, you can better plan your day without the hassle of driving far or being stuck in traffic. Living in Three Central opens you to more choices –where to go, where to eat, or what to do. We are the only developer in Makati CBD that offers very flexible payment terms. Investment for a studio or 1 bedroom unit starts at Php 15,000 a month. Just pay the reservation fee, and the Php 15,000 a month, that’s it. No downpayment, no lumpsum, at zero percent interest.”

Looking at the new Three Central Condominium I can’t help but think that had I invested on a place like this my investment would have probably doubled by now.

Check out Three Central Apartments/Condos:

Shoppingero/shoppingra, if you’re tired of commuting and sitting in traffic or you want to save time and money while making your big city life dream come true, maybe it’s time to invest in a condo that’s near your work area. Check out Three Central!
