My Hello5 Vietnam Premium Coffee Gift Set

Coffee is one of my passions. There are just times when I simply cannot jumpstart a day without having my obligatory first cup of the day. There are also times when I consume about 4 cups in a single day! I know it was rather unhealthy to be gulping on one too many cups of coffee, but sometimes I simply cannot help it and somehow I find it a very effective cure for headaches, especially those that I can no longer stand. I guess you can safely say that I am a coffeeholic. But don’t you worry, I find ways to curb on the consumption when it is absolutely necessary! 🙂

That being said, I am sure you can now imagine how wonderful I felt when I found out I won a Premium Vietnam Coffee Gift Set from The Peach Kitchen. Now, although I am such a prodigious coffee drinker, I am not what you might consider a connoisseur and I have yet to try a wider variety of coffee. Although I have not experienced Vietnamese coffee, I was excited merely at the sight of my lovely giveaway prize! The gift set came in this lovely box which I cannot wait to open.

My prize is comprised of a big bag of Hello5 premium coffee from Vietnam, and this coffee filter. It also comes with an instruction on how to prepare the coffee. I was supposed to put the coffee onto the filter and pour a little amount of water in it and let it sit for a bit. Afterwards, I was to put a sufficient amount of hot water, just about right to fill my coffee cup.

I have yet to prepare a cup and I am betting it will be a perfect companion while I burn the midnight lamp to read more about these cool Fenders. I will make sure to update you about the experience. In the meantime, shouts go out to the Peach Kitchen for this yummy treat! ^_^

Dining Out At Citang’s

Pinoy Food, foodie adventures, foodie finds

I cannot believe that I have been traveling past this famed restaurant for the last several years when I live only a few minutes away from it. We have been passing by this place and all its yummy goodness to and from the little man’s old playschool last year and I am only delighted that I finally managed to drop by and sample what Citang’s has to offer. I was surprised to find out that this establishment has been around since 1970’s and I wonder why it took me all these years to discover it!

If you are a big fan of Filipino cuisine and delicacies then Citang’s will be a haven for a foodie like you. They have numerous delicious native delicacies and specialties on display, along with a number of famous Pinoy staples like lugaw, dinuguan, pancit, and a wide variety of kakanins, among others.

I was not able to have breakfast that day so our Citang’s visit is the most opportune time to fill the tummy with mouth-watering goodies. There were a lot of customers in the restaurant that morning, plus we were having a bit of a hard time choosing from the many delicious food available. In the end,  I opted for a set of lugaw, lumpiang toge, and tokwa’t baboy. I would’ve sampled the other goodies if only I have enough space in my tummy for them! 😀

Of course, I did not leave the place without buying some goodies to bring home. I chose to buy a huge slice of kakanin and a pack of toasted pastillas {which I shall tell you all about in a separate post, by the way :)}

Over all, I love my Citang’s experience. The place is nothing fancy, but I do love the food and I am sure a lot of people who has penchant for delicious Filipino delicacies will do to. And now that I think about it, I would really love to have another bite of those mouth-watering Citang’s specialties, while reading all about these bose noise cancelling headphones. If you happen to be down in Malolos City, do swing by Citang’s and discover this delicious gem. This place can’t be that hard to find as it is located strategically beside the well-known Sta. Isabel Church.
