MEGAFIBER Psyllium Fiber: Your holiday over-eating remedy!

The holidays reminds me a lot of things: family reunions, friendly get-togethers, parties, gifts and yes, food. I mean a lot of food! Every occasion wouldn't be complete without an awesome and hearty meal to relish with your loved ones. Conversations goes a long way without us minding how many calories have gone already into our mouth through our stomach, and then we realized, we start complaining about tummy fullness. Urk, I guess that's holidays for us!

We don't usually mind about our diet during these season, right? Whatever is served during a party, we just scarf away what we can gather and get that satisfying feeling after. Next thing we know, we gained weight, we started to complain about cramping and constipation and lot more. And that my friends, is where I introduce MEGAFIBER to you!

Megafiber Psyllium Fiber is a 100% all natural, multi-tasking fiber supplement that provides multiple health benefits for overall well-being. The new Megafiber is made from up from all-naturall psyllium fiber, a bulk-forming fiber. When it absorbs liquids, it forms a slippery film and swells by 8-14 times its normal weight and forms a soft, bulky mass that passes quickly and easily through the colon. Plus, it helps stimulate the reflex needed for the to empty.


Launched by the people who originally brought you psyllium fiber, the new Megafiber delivers on all of its benefits at 50 percent more value for money. Without spending more, users of psyllium fiber will get 50 percent more of the hardworking dietary fiber supplement with new Megafiber.  They can expect new Megafiber to help them prevent constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), control Diarrhea or Loose Bowel Movement (LBM), reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart diseases, lose weight, and regulate blood sugar.



Because new Megafiber binds with cholesterol secreted in bile acids and excretes it before it is absorbed into the blood stream, it helps reduce cholesterol and correspondingly, the risk of heart disease. At the same time, it provides a feeling of fullness which in turn helps reduce hunger pangs, and lessens the tendency to overeat.  This could lead to weight loss as new Megafiber also assists in capturing then excreting the fats in our food.
Available at Mercury Drug and other major drugstores nationwide, the new Megafiber comes in bigger 7.5g travel sachets and 300g bottles at existing retail prices of leading brands. It is also offered in half-kilo family size packs for those who want greater savings.


With all of its health benefits, the new Megafiber offers great value for consumers looking to stretch their hard-earned peso.  It contains pure 100% natural psyllium fiber in every dose (the equivalent to 45grams of oats).  It is a natural and safe way to regularly rid the body of wastes that can lead to digestive disorders and serious health conditions.  There are no additives, sweeteners, preservatives, artificial colors or flavoring in new Megafiber. It is also cholesterol-, yeast- and gluten-free. 

P.S.
I shed 3 lbs already by just having a regular intake of Megafiber in just a month! Hihihi :D

JeedJard Chewy Tamarind -- healthy yummy snack!

Nothing beats going through a day without something to chew on, especially when it's healthy and convenient! 

Going on a rough day at work and amassed by piles of paperworks and clinic stuff, I was relieved to receive a box full of awesome yummy treats! I gladly shared it with my workmates and they instantly loved it as well! These yummy chewies are called "JeedJard" -- bite-size chewy tamarind manufactured from fresh sweet tamarind grown in Petchaboon, a province in Thailand famous all over the world for its delicious tamarind.


Traditionally used in cooking and hailed for its healing properties, sweet tamarind, or makahm wahn in Thai, has many nutritional benefits. The edible part of tamarind contains Calcium as well as Vitamins A, B, and C. It also contains Fiber, which helps promote good digestion. Now you can enjoy the flavor and benefits of real tamarind without the hassle of having to crack open shells, picking out which pods are good to eat, and spitting out the seeds–it’s yummy tamarind that’s neater and easier to eat!

 JeedJard Chewy Tamarind candies are available in three flavors: the original JeedJard Tamarind with Plum has the natural sweet and sour taste enhanced with plum powder; the Jeedjard Tamarind with Spicy Plum will tickle the taste buds of spicy food lovers and the JeedJard Tamarind Stick has the taste of natural tamarind that you love, lightly coated with sugar.

Asian Ghost House at Manila Ocean Park - Truly a fright night!

I can't say that I am a fan of horror films because one, it scares the wits out of me! I even remember one time when I saw an Asian horror flick which is produced in Thailand has caused me to stay away and develop a fear of being alone in public toilet cubicles. In that movie, they made a scene where a deranged ghost is lurking inside the restroom and whoever dared to get inside shall be haunted and get killed.  That fear of mine lasted for a couple of months -- and remembering about that makes me fearsome again! Huhuhu

When I got invited one random Friday evening from Manila Ocean Park, I went for it since it has become my favorite place to enjoy, be amazed and be a kid again. What I didn't notice from the invite itself is that it would be a their Halloween special wherein they will introduce their latest attraction -- The Asian Ghost House!


I AM NOT READY FOR THIS! I SWEAR!
I am with my blogger friend, Camille Salazar and we were scared silly with what we are going to experience that night. Hands shaking, knees trembling, palms sweaty.. we were even silent through the whole course of our dinner Manila Ocean Park has provided us! Fast-forwarding the story, we went inside and like, OMG OMG, OMG, OMG!!



Several horrifying creatures has come face to face with us as we walk past through the dark corridors. From a long-tongue ghost roaming around to a ghost wearing a Cheongsam and bloody to a sneaky vampire who totally scared us and made us run. The meat-loving butcher who created a loud thumping using his big butcher knife really made me paranoid and the monster caged in a jail creating noise, making us more mortified and scared! Imaging our priceless frightened faces while we are inside the Asian Ghost House!


Truly it has been a fright night for all of us! From disturbing creatures, sound and light effects and eerie interiors, walking your way out inside the Asian Ghost House has proven to be a difficult and terrifying task one has to consider! Go with your family and friends and experience Halloween like never before!

The Asian Ghost House is ready for their scary tactics beginning October 4, 2012 - all Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays of October 2012. For details, please call 567-7777 or visit www.manilaoceanpark.com

PAST MEETS FUTURE: COLE HAAN PRESENTS THE LUNARGRAND COLLECTION



In September, the much-anticipated Cole Haan LunarGrand Wingtip Collection will launch in Asia Pacific. Engineered to conquer the streets of New York City, the LunarGrand is a conceptual clash of past meets future—the unique and seamless fusion of timeless design and futuristic innovation. Incorporating Nike’s innovative ultra-lightweight Lunarlon cushioning system into Cole Haan’s traditional construction techniques, the LunarGrand achieves unrivaled feel, flexibility and movement - redefining how classic dress shoes can move and function in modern urban environments.

“The LunarGrand came from our perpetual obsession with making our products better,” says Phil Russo, Cole Haan’s VP of Design. “When you understand what people are doing in their shoes today, their expectations of style and demands of functionality, you can create products that really do make a difference as people go about their everyday lives.

Through considered and specific engineering, the Cole Haan LunarGrand emerges as a unique product that challenges preconceptions of how dress shoes can adapt. “The goal of the design process was to create a wingtip to take on the streets of New York City—a shoe that utilized motion-enhancing innovations at the same time as retaining its authentic and timeless aesthetic,” said Russo.

The immediate reaction when wearing the shoe is to its lightweight and flexible motion-enhancing properties. A well-fitted heel, which better secures the shoe on the foot, as well as a wider forefoot and slimmer rounded toe, allow for more natural, ergonomic foot movement. A partial lining lends a clean, deconstructed feel and keeps the shoe significantly light. Lunarlon cushioning technology in the mid-sole is encased within an outsole featuring micro-diamond tread textures and rubber toe pods to maximize traction and adaptability on unforgiving concrete streets—a competitive advantage in the city that never sleeps.



Built on a classic Cole Haan last with a leather welt detail and crafted in premium suede uppers, the LunarGrand gracefully retains its iconic wingtip silhouette. The men’s and women’s Cole Haan LunarGrand Wingtip is now available exclusively at the following Cole Haan Philippines Stores:



ROCKWELL STORE
G/F Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center
(02) 898 0964

SHANGRI-LA STORE

Larry and Mau Diner: Good Food and Good Friends Go Together

Craving for great food with an ambiance of just chilling out with your good friends?  Then might I suggest heading over to a certain Larry and Mau Diner and let your palates experience the zing built by friends.


GOOD FOOD AND GOOD FRIENDS GO TOGETHER.
It's written all over the place and no doubt about feeling good dining here! Larry and Mau Diner is the brainchild of two guys who, from "rags-to-riches", managed to build another foodie haven goers will surely be fans of! From their six brands of well established restaurants including Uncle Cheffy, Old Vince Grille, Chef's Quarter Restaurant and Wine Bar, Kuse Traditional Filipino Cuisine, Beurre Blanc Restaurant and now came Larry and Mau Diner.
Larry and Mau Diner is similar to fastfood outlets that lets you order your food at the counter. However, they are not just serving hamburgers and chickens but a whole lot more! Here's what they served us that afternoon.


NACHOS SALAD | Php95 - Savory, tangy, cheesy! Our appetizer just hits the spot with this crunchy nachos salad!


FISH PAILLARD | Php 139 - Flattened meat fish served with rice or fries, carrots and corn and their one-of-a-kind Pinoy Steak Sauce which I surely loved because of its distinct taste. The fish meat is so tender one could not even use a knife with this.


PORK PAILLARD | Php139 - Flattened pork meat served with rice or fries, carrots and corn ans Pinoy Steak sauce and mustard sauce. My personal favorite because of its aroma upon serving and its tenderness which is easy to chew.


SMOKED BOILED BACON TASTE OF IRELAND | Php169 - It looks like our native viand "nilaga" but tasted way better! At first, it got me weirded since I knew bacon is cooked fried. But this one made me an instant fan because of its tenderness and savory meat. One should try this when visiting Larry and Mau!


SEAFOOD MARINARA | Php89 -  A pasta bedazzled by seafood. This nifty concoction puts a spice in our everyday pasta and trickled it with the vast taste of the sea.


ALL MEAT POMODORO | Php89 - So who wants meat? This dish boasts an all meat cast that are tender, moist and oh so meaty!


 
(L-R clockwise) Tuna and Cheese melt, Php95 | Spiced Corn and Eggplant, Php89 | Pork Afritada, Php89 - The all time Filipino favorite torta now comes with a twist! With its soft texture on the inside and right crunchiness on the outside, no doubt that it really does taste great than your ordinary torta at home. Perfect match with their sauce!


For chicken lovers, this is a sure treat for you! 
ROASTED CHICKEN, price starts at Php79 for one-piece chicken 

BUFFALO WINGS | Php130 for 150gms and Php230 for 300gms - one bite and the crunchiness hits the spot! Very crunchy and has a right taste of tangy and spiciness on it! 


CRISPY FRIED PORK RIBS | Php99 Regular size and Php450 Family size. - Crispy, crunchy and all around delectable. These ribs are cooked to perfection and has become an instant fave of mine after the first bite!


Definitely with all the food served on us, we were downright full! But alas, the nice waiter served us their hefty ONE POUND of pure beef patty topped with tomatoes, cheese, lettuce and the works! Like OMG, with the size of that burger, it should have been our whole main course! 




SUPER BURGER | Php395 
In fact, this coming month of August, they will be launching the ULTIMATE BURGER CHALLENGE which stars their one pound burger! Saturdays are open to aspiring Kings and Queens (male-female couples, 18 years old and above) while Sundays are reserved for Kings and Princes ( father and son tandems.

Perhaps you’ve read about the misadventures of an exasperating and disagreeable boy who is equal parts witty and offensive as he tries to live thru life?
