Housewife and mother of four, Alicia Obispo, couldn’t hold back her tears when she received one of the greatest surprises of her life. She is now P3-million richer after her entry was drawn as the Grand Winner of the Great Taste White Choose Great, Win Great Raffle Promo.

“My dream is to have our own house and lot. I don’t want to worry that one day we’ll be forced out from our home,” says Alicia who resides in a rural farmland with her husband and children. “If our land owners asked us to leave, we have to evacuate right away – that’s why if we have enough money, we’d build our own house.”

Every day is a challenge for Alicia who,aside from not having a permanent house, strives to make ends meet from tending livestock.

Of Coconut Soups + Curries

foodie adventures, dining out, Thai Cuisine, restaurants

It is one of those rare occasions when the grown ups get to choose to eat wherever we want when we had one delicious dining experience, complete with coconut soup and curry. For starters, I was not a big fan of spicy food and curry until we tried an authentic thai cuisine a few years back and we absolutely loved it!

We ventured past the array of restaurants at the 4th level of Trinoma undecided on where to take our rather late lunch and saw a great place to have some curry and Thai, Banana Leaf.

It was a bit past lunch time so we decided on something heavy to fill our hungry stomachs and opted for their Thai Coconut Seafood Soup, Malayan Beef Curry with Potatoes, and Stir Fired Prawns in Malayan Coconut Curry. Of course, we also ordered cups of rice to pair with the dishes. I also tried their Iced Lemon Grass with Honey to pair with my meal and I loved it!

The Thai Coconut Seafood Soup {288} is really yummy! I love the delicious blend of different seafood, while the coconut milk lends an appetizing sweet flavor to the soup. It was a refreshing soup to start a lovely meal, especially on a hot afternoon.
