“YOU” hate philippino food?????   Leave a comment

Polish bloggers Agness and Cez (Contributed photo)

Polish bloggers react to firestorm after saying they’d rather
go hungry than eat Pinoy food
By Ces Rodriguez | Yahoo SHE – Sat, Mar 22, 2014 7:41 PM PHT
Do you agree that Pinoy food is “packed with salt, sugar and oil”?
Sure you do.
We live on sisig, lechon, bagoong, menudo and adobong baboy floating in lard. We dig the umami saltiness of “magic
powders” and the sodium overload of broth cubes. And we put sugar in our spaghetti.

‘Old and gross’
But let’s take that same phrase—“packed with salt, sugar and oil”—and attribute it to Polish food and travel bloggers Agness
(Agnieszka Walewinder) and Cez (Cezary Król), who went to Banaue, Cebu, Bohol, Manila and perhaps Vigan to sample the
local fare.
Let them say things like: “The fruits we bought at local markets daily looked and tasted old and gross” and “I had a massive
migraine, mood swings and heartbum (sic) caused by spicy and oily pork” and “The biggest disappointment was not trying
traditional Filipino dishes (because) we simply could not find them!”
Finally, let them title their blog entry, “I Would Rather Go Hungry Than Eat Filipino Street Food Again!”

Readymade firestorm
And voila! A readymade firestorm dreamed up in viral heaven, thanks to what the bloggers called their “honesty” and what
many Pinoys thought was a gross insult to our culture (hashtag #PinprickedPinoyPride).
Uploaded on March 17, 2014 on eTramping.com, the post has generated 679 (moderated) comments (with more waiting in
the wings), raised hackles on Facebook and had writer Agness defending herself on Twitter.
It didn’t help either that the blog showed a black and white photo of Agness looking sickly and disheveled, with the caption,
“My ‘I’m starving but I don’t want to eat this food’ face”.

7-11
Among many things, people took issue with her photo of a hotdog sandwich which she captioned: “We asked for ‘longganisa’
which is Filipino famous sausage and this is what we were served – American style hot dog.”
Based on the single-serve condiment packs seen in the photo, commenters deduced that the hotdog was bought at a 7-11.

Best 3-in-1 instant coffee mix? for $1.00 usd a cup   Leave a comment

Best 3-in-1 instant coffee mix?

What’s you choice among the many brands in the market? I have tasted a good number of 3-in-1 coffee mixes already, to name a few:

  • Nescafe (original, decaf, sugar-free, mocha java, hazelnut)
    Great Taste (Cappuccino, sugar-free, regular)
    Maxwell
    Kafe De Oro
    San Miguel Coffee (Regular, extra-strong, mild)
    San Miguel Flavoured Coffee
    Kopiko (yes meron nito hindi lang candy) 
    Klassno (Hazelnut)

 isip pa ko kung may na-miss ako.

so far, i keep coming back to Nescafe Original. I used to love Kafe De Oro but it only lasted for a few weeks, bumalik din ako sa Nescafe. Then Kopiko, paborito ng officemate ko. minsan humihingi ako sa kanya pero para akong umiinom ng candy 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

TRENDS

  • The government and the private sector are both making efforts to increase local coffee production, in order to reduce the reliance on imports. In 2012, however, local production in the Philippines still did not meet coffee demand in the country. The country imports the rest of its coffee requirements from Vietnam, Indonesia and other Asian countries. In 2012, the key player in the coffee industry, Nestlé Philippines Inc, opened a new coffee centre in Batangas City that will increase access to new coffee farming techniques in a bid to increase the number of coffee producers and production in the Philippines.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Nestlé Philippines Inc dominates coffee sales with a value share nearly 90%, due to its strong positioning and leadership in the instant coffee sector. The company’s Nescafé brand was one of the first instant coffee brands in the country and hence was able to establish a large and loyal consumer base through effective advertising, continuous innovation and the good quality of its coffee products. Its programmes to help develop the domestic coffee industry also give the company an competitive edge.

PROSPECTS

  • The more widespread health and wellness trend in the forecast period will encourage various brand manufacturers to produce organic and decaffeinated coffee variants to prevent a decline in the consumer base and capture a greater share of health-conscious consumers. There might be more marketing activities that will highlight the benefits of coffee, as manufacturers’ attempt to counter any negative perception about the drink. The positive economic outlook in the forecast period will benefit both the instant and fresh coffee categories.

Tawas Health Benefits

Tawas as deodorant
Tawas is a safe natural way to control body odor or deodorant. Tawas is hypoallergenic, easily washable, it is not an antiperspirant thus it does not clog the skin pores. Tawas works by eliminating the odor causing bacteria so the body would not smell while maintaining the natural way of sweating.

Industrial Water Purification
Tawas is commonly used in industrial applications as an agent in water purification. Tawas is used in reducing the turbidity or cloudiness of water. When dissolved tawas is mixed with cloudy water, the suspended minerals and particles are attracted together by the action of tawas creating a heavy gelatinous substance that settle at the bottom called precipitates. The resulting clear water above is then ready for further filtration and purification.

In the 1950s, men sporting crew cut or flattop hairstyles sometimes applied alum to their front short hairs as an alternative to pomade[citation needed]. When the hair dried, it would stay up all day.
