It is reiterated here in this blog that Filipinos has his very sensitive taste buds. To other people it’s delicious, but to us, it isn’t. This conclusion also goes with culinary skills. Due to the fact that we are picky in terms of food taste, we want the foods we make to be tasteful and very delicious.
I’m saying this not because I am a Filipino. But, because of my observation. World known food enthusiasts testified that we can really make the most flavor-explosive foods in the world.
Chocolates is one of those foods that will never be out of season. Whatever age and gender people can’t resist this tooth-aching yummy. Me, chocolate is one of those things that first come into my mind whenever I wanted to have my self some sweeties.
What’s great is that chocolate bars are everywhere. I don’t have to commute whenever I crave for one.

Who in heck doesn’t want a ripping body? Who doesn’t want to stay slim and fit? For me, my answer is none. It’s hypocrisy to say that you don’t like to have a body that everybody dreamed of. Or, the health status that everyone’s struggling to have.
Gyms are everywhere, diet ideas are around and even foods claiming to make someone fit are written all over the internet are proofs that people are into healthy lifestyle.
However, some of the alternatives are quite deceiving. The publicity for such are far more beyond the reality.
Aspartame for example, is a sweetener that is 200 times an ordinary table sugar. This is present to some beverages, most particularly to what is known as diet sodas.
During Summer here in the Philippines, my head goes nuts every time I used to see advertisement pertaining to diet sodas. The companies are claiming that these sweeteners can actually make someone slimmer.
This article is all about aspartame, the main sweetener of diet sodas, it’s effect to human bodies and how dangerous it is.
Weird is a term used for something unusual, odd and strange. We can say someone or something is weird when a majority found it different. So, we can say weird is ordinary to someone, but different to others. In example, eating a meal with bare hands is something that Filipinos do everyday. However, Americans and other westerners will found it odd or maybe, won’t do it.
From the title itself, I will enlist some of the weird fruits that can be seen here in the Philippines. I may not be sure if it’s weird with you, but it’s a little weird for me.
Durian is a fruit native to Southeast Asia. The fruit can be distinguished by it’s spiky and round appearance. The yellow flesh inside is edible. You can also identify it by the strong odor.
According to some historians, Durian with scientific name Durio kutejensis was said to have originated in the Philippines and since it can grow easily in tropical climates, it just numbered to the residing countries. In the Philippines, you can see it sold in the sidewalks along the Davao region.
I’m a fruit lover, but if you’ll serve me some Durian, I’ll have my head moving left and right. Why? This is because of the foul odor that this fruit has. The smell is a close resemblance to rotting onions. Many people will agree with me, as this is prohibited inside a public transportation. People who carry the fruits should surrender this to the drivers and conductors and will keep it away from people.
I was dared by my friend to try and to be fair, it’s like eating a creamy and pulpy jack fruit inside a lavatory.
Jollibee was one of the fast food chains I grew up with. I’m one of those kids who loves the chant “Isa pa, isa pa, isa pang Chicken Joy,” with actions pointing the fingers upward with both wrists moving up and down.
Until today, I still can’t resist the foods Jollibee serves. Just recently, I made a post about the coming back of their Aloha Burger and I love it. I’m one of those who wish it will never be out of their menu. Try that burger and it will never fail to impress.
My youngest sister and I ordered via Jollibee delivery; and while waiting for the delivery personnel to arrive, my sister said to me that in Singapore, the Jollibee is box-office. I’m not actually surprised on what she said as the Yahoo! Singapore conducted a blind test for fried chickens in the country and found out the Jollibee’s is the best among the rest. However, I didn’t imagine anything.
During my high school to college years, I am a fan of the huge and rectangular wallet. But, because the fact that I don’t have money, I buy those cheap. Every three months, I used to change my wallet as they are getting worn out. One time, I decided to buy the same, but the one with a thousand price tag. Well, I can say that it’s worthy as until today, I haven’t changed it.
They said: “Quality Comes a Price” and I agree, if you want quality, you should pay an amount.
This also goes with being healthy. If you wanted to become a person with a sound mind and body, invest. Invest not just time, effort, but money as well.
The best example of investment to being healthy is dealing with cooking oils. Vegetable oil comes cheap, but will also cause you something. Mostly of the vegetable oil in your nearest market are fats. These fats are easily absorbed by the cells, but will oxidize easily causing immature and inflamed cells. Such cells sometime blocked arteries.
Fatty acids are also present to the vegetable oil in the market. This is a very big factor different type of cancer, heart attack, high cholestrol and many more.
