Frais, Authentique & Abordable: Check Out Boulangerie 22

Being the QC baby that I am and living in the northern part of Manila all my life, heading down south in Makati sure is a bummer. Having to endure all day traffic jams, overcrowded places and the intense heat / humidity when you go outside the office surely slows me down. But I try to find no time fo complaints because hey, it's an everyday thing and there's nothing else I could do but to deal with it. Still, there are reasons on why I still love going to Makati - one, my job (of course hahaha) and two - I get to discover new and interesting places where I can eat, have drinks and just chill!

So when I discovered Boulangerie 22 along Rada Street in Legaspi Village (you can find it on the other end of One Legaspi Park building), I instantly fell in love with it. French Café music, pretty decorated walls and windows brought a cool Parisian vibe that I find really relaxing. I remember seeing a similar vibe when I passed by along Alabang Hills a few weeks before, only to find out that it's actually one of their branches.

Just look at this tray full of goodies (below): pizza bread, almond croissants, and cute bite size sweets are sure to perk up your afternoons.

Plus, I think they have the most affordable macarons within the business district. Get these colorful morsels of sweet and creamy goodness for Php39 a piece!

Boulangerie 22 also has a variety of breads topped with floss, but instead of pork, these are made with chicken. These are definitely a healthier alternative than the usual floss that you'd get in other shops.

You can also find these French treats, Madeleine cookies which come in classic and chocolate flavors. These babies are so perfect while having a quiet time with a cup of tea or coffee.

Boulangerie 22 is also one of the few distributors of The Fruit Garden, a local entity that makes some of the most sought-after jams and spreads - many of their selections have already reached even inside hotel breakfast lounges. My personal favorite is their Strawberry preserves!

I've tried these sweet breads filled with Strawberry and Ube Cream as well! Although I must admit that I wasn't able to finish eating them so I shared it to my friends instead hehe (because sharing is caring, right?) 

Speaking of sharing, you can also buy some of their cookies that are so huge I think I may not be able to finish one on my own! So I suggest you try to visit Boulangerie 22 with a friend to help you out with the eating!

For extra special occasions, Boulangerie 22 has this Gold Leaf Bear Cake --- a cute heart shaped chocolate cake topped with chocolate ganache and a cute teddy bear chocolate figure surrounded by edible Gold Leaf drops! This cake might seem uber expensive but I assure you that the price isn't as painful as how you would expect it to be! You can get this sweet gift suggestion for only Php699 :)

My Snow Caps Review: The Effects Of Taking Snow Caps Oral Glutathione Capsules

There was a time where I was actually afraid of taking vitamins and food supplements because I was worried it would just make me feel bloated and fat. That time, I was young, naïve and a bit careless. It was the same case until I reached mid-20s and I started to look after myself even more.   So I decided to take vitamins every now and then to help me get through the daily stress and inevitable circumstances of drinking with friends. But never did I imagine that I will be taking glutathione, simply because I don't have a goal of having white and fair skin. I love my brown color, thank you very much. Little did I know that the effects of Gluthathione are far more impressive from what I know. Naturally, glutathione is produced by the liver and is considered as ont of the most powerful antioxidants which inhibits the production of toxins and free radicals. These toxins are usually caused by stress and other external lifestyle factors such as drinking, smoking and fatigue.

A Traveller's Guide When Eating Tamilok In Palawan

I'm not sure if it's just me, but if you are travelling in Palawan, you would notice that that a lot of the locals would know exactly what to say when it comes to the go-to tourist spots, especially promoting their exotic  Tamilok. I even had this weird imagination that all the people in Palawan were programmed to say all the nicest things for the sake of tourism. But I know too well that this is not true, because Palawan is just a wonderful place and there is nothing major that I had to complain about. But just in case you might be itching for  Tamilok, you should also know that there are certain rules to abide by. And this is just a quick guide when purchasing  Tamilok in Palawan. THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO PALAWAN'S FAMOUS TAMILOK     -Tamilok, thanks to Google, becomes a familiar term when you search for it. One of the locals told me that "it's not a wood, and it's not a worm". I'm not sure if you guys have encountered that same local
