Hello and welcome to my first favorites round up of 2021! I mentioned before that I’m going to take it a little slow this year in terms of ordering stuff, but honestly I think I’ve gotten A LOT pickier too. That’s why it took me 2 whole months before I could come up with a satisfactory favorites list. The upside to that is all the products and brands I’m mentioning in this list are literally the best things I’ve enjoyed the last two months, and I have zero qualms recommending them to anyone.
November 2020 Round-Up: 7 delicious new discoveries
It’s both fascinating and annoying how time literally zips by the moment you enter the -ber months. Yesterday it was just September, and suddenly we’re less than 30 days away from the end of another year. But oh what a year it has been, am I right? This intro is more suited to my year-end wrap-up, but I can’t help but lament how 2020 has been both so short and so long at the same time.
October 2020 Round-Up: A balanced list of favorites
October’s list is significantly shorter than any of the lists I’ve been making lately. I suppose it’s because of my sudden pickiness when it comes to ordering, but I also think it’s because we’ve been cooking and baking quite a lot in the house this October. I have been insanely busy to a degree even I don’t understand lol. In any case, I have 10 things on my list this month, and it might just be the very epitome of quality over quantity because most of the things in this list may also make it to my year-end faves.
Eat or Retreat: All-You-Can-Eat Dimsum Buffet at LiLi Restaurant New World Manila Bay [VIDEO]
There are people who are great at buffets, and then there are those like myself who are not. And because of this, I find myself a little more critical whenever I go to one. Most of the good buffets don’t come cheap, but expensive is okay as long as you get some satisfaction in return. Value for money, in short. So was this All-You-Can-Eat Dimsum Buffet at LiLi Restaurant worth it?
Eat or Retreat: Coolhaus Ice Cream Pints & Sammies
I’ve been intending to write about the Coolhaus Ice Cream I received from the California Milk Advisory Board for no other reason than because I found myself really liking the ice cream. In fact, they exceeded my expectations so much I immediately went online to check what other flavors are available.
Local Discoveries: MC Special Rice
One of the most gratifying things about this whole blogging thing is when I can sit down and write about a local brand with a glowing heart, because the moment we took my first bite of MC Special Rice, I knew I was going to rave about it. My mom loved it too actually. She was immediately asking, between spoonfuls of the rice, where and how to order.
