SM HyperMarket #BestPinoyStreetFood2015

Pinoy Food is now getting its due attention from the world food scene and our Pinoy street food flare is just as loved.

A celebration of street food

The food fair offered the best of the best when it comes to street food and they were all gathered together at the biggest street food event in the country. 

And on top of it all, everyone was treated to fun games, exciting promos, and must-have freebies arranged by the event’s sponsors; Unilever Food Solutions, Knorr, Nestle All-Purpose Cream, Maggi, Pure Food Crispy Fried Chicken, Tender Juicy Hotdog, Purefoods Chicken Breast Nuggets, Del Monte, Joy, P&G, CDO Sweet Ham, CDO Ulam Burger, Bibbo Hotdog, Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino, CDO Chicken Franks, Sesame Hotdog, Holiday Squid Balls, and Idol Cheesedog. 

An Epic Food Fight

In an epic cook-off by some of the country’s most talented street food cooks, ten of the best street food cooks competed at the grand finals where they were tested, not only by the Kusina Master – Chef Boy Logro but also by a crowd of 100 people composed of students, drivers, shoppers, and other business owners, the ones who eat their dishes every day.

They gave it everything they’ve got, all the techniques, knowledge, and skill to win because only one will get to take home a life changing prize, his/her very own food stall at SM Hypermarket rent-free for a year as well as P100,000 pesos worth of prizes including large food packs, ingredients, cooking equipment, etc. courtesy of SM Hypermarket’s Food Service Center; the home of big packs and big savings; and other hotel, restaurant, and catering needs. 

The top ten contenders for the title of Best Pinoy Street Food 2015 Grand Winner was made up of incredibly talented cooks who surprised everyone with their kitchen handiwork.

Osc 30-ish BDAY with Baskin Robbins #31happiest Contest

Dahil nasarapan ang kids sa first Baskin Robbins Experience nila, Daddy O decided to include Baskin Robbins  on his birthday week treat again 😀

and wouldn’t it be nice if his birthday cake would be from Baskin na if we win 😀

wish us luck!!!



If Baskin Robbins has triple junior scoop, may pantapat ako jan! meet my Triple Junior Squad 😛





My Eldest

-na camera shy 🙂

My Mini Me – na ayaw magpaawat sa pictorial

IMG_2069 IMG_2070 IMG_2071

and the real life version of  AGNES in the animation movie Despicable Me!

our baby bunso 😀


walang pila sa Baskin Robbin’s when we arrived at 6pm 🙂 saya na sana diba?

kaso wala na lahat ng flavor na gusto kong i-try 😦

mega plan pa naman ako ng next target to taste ko but the only flavor available that time was 11 😦

and mga plain lang karamihan, SADNESSSSSSSS!

to cheer us up the Ice Cream guy asked us to try the flavor of the month na nalalimutan ko kung ano hahahahah.

Pero di ko din feel 😦 in the end halos na tikman namin ung mga nandun lahat kasi wala nang mapili hahahaha.

We just ordered chocolate and peanut butter for Charles, gold medal ribbon for Chloe and rainbow sorbet Ricci.


IMG_2073 IMG_2077


but my pasaway na bunso grabbed Ricci’s cup and ayaw na ibalik 😦 kawawang Ricci. Buti na lang ate understand and she just keep in mind that babies like Chloe are like the baby dragons in the movie How to Train your Dragon 2, that they won’t listen to the ALPHA Dragon no matter what.(the alpha refers to me daw) and thank god for that at naintindihan nya na ang kaartehan ng bunso namin.




Asked our baby-bunso if she likes is, and she said LIKE!!! then giggles 😀

IMG_2089 IMG_2090 IMG_2091

*reaction nya talaga yan sa ice cream 😀


pag sinabi kong PENGE?… this happens…


IMG_2092 IMG_2093 IMG_2094

lumalayo nang bongga 😛 she doesn’t want to share 😦

IMG_2095 IMG_2098

Naubos agad ni kuya and Choco Peanut Butter Ice Cream nya and halata bang like nya yung Rainbow Sorbet ko? (regular cup)

yeah I ordered the same thing, masarap kasi maasim, nakakakontra umay 🙂

IMG_2086 IMG_2087 IMG_2088


When I say sige na nga share na tayo, ayan kuya start to dig in na 😛



regular cup cost 119/scoop 

junior cup cost 85/scoop

mas sulit if triple scoop na lang at 195/3 scoop

dapat lang mabilis ka kumain or else maghahalo halo ang lasa which is baka di nyo na feel 🙂

and if ever uulit ako mas i will go for junior scoop na lang konti lang naman difference sa laki 😛

A special Treat from Made in Candy’s Special Day

After our #bestfoodforward tour we decided to go around the PowerPlant Mall, looking for our current milk tea fave, but sadly Dakasi was nowhere to be found 😦

As we walk our baby-bunso panicky walks towards this  a familiar looking booth! And me and my hubby’s face were like “oh no! Candy!!! this was their favorite! honestly medyo pricey sya. 100 for a small foil with ziplock pack. P75 in mini jar and 150 for the bigger one.

so ito na nga, my kids and I  loves to watch the candy makers in action. The Nice lady from Made in Candy offers free samples to taste and my kids LOVED it that they went back for more 🙂 eeeeh kahiya on the side 😛

So not broke my kids heart I gave in and said “kids, tipid mode tayo ah, wala pa funds kaya share-share lang okey?” and payag naman sila 🙂
