Enchanted Friday Breakfast Meal <3 March 26, 2012

Filed under: Lamon Fest — jenkifer @ 7:20 am

As always, may problem nanaman friday van to the office kaya para hindi ma waste yung morning while waiting for ze sundo to ze opis, I did my morning chores and dropped by the Human Nature store (Yes, I’m an authorized dealer, so if you need products from Human Nature, i’m just a call or text away).

Back to the kwento, Mejo tagal pa din si koya driver after I got the items I needed. At dahil wala pa ako’ng breakfast, I remembered na soft opening na nga pala ng Enchanted Cafe.

Enchanted Cafe is an advocacy cafe where they showcase products and other items produced in the Philippines. Yes, from farms in the Philippines! pero mostly from what they call – the Enchanted Farm. The Enchanted Farm naman is an advocacy enterprise of Gawad Kalinga and their partners that basically aims to help the poor and the pinoy farmers.

The time I visited Enchanted Cafe, soft opening pa sila. I heard their grand opening is on the 29th. Mejo maingay, no aircon (ini-install pa kasi) but the place has potential (yun nga lang sa 2nd floor to 😐 pero hindi naman mahirap akyatin hihihi).

It was a friday when I checked them out, buti nlng the nice lady behind the counter offered a Friday friendly breakfast meal 😀 (nawala din kasi sa mind ko na friday nga pala) and sooo, here’s what I had.

 

Enchanted Cafe's Egg & Cheese Sandwich with Enchantea

 

The egg and cheese sandwich (Php 45.00 for 2) is made out of egg and kesong puti sandwiched between the classic pinoy pan de sal (though one of the ladies at Human Nature store said na the pan de sal is made out of bamboo ekla ekla – maybe she’s referring to the toothpick? ewan nyehehe) paired with Enchanted Farm’s Enchantea – a mixture of lemongrass, duhat, pandan, kalamansi and avocado… very refreshing 😀 (serry naman I forgot na how much yun Tea 😛 )

Henihoo, I’d love to come back and try their other foodie selections like:

Bite-size Pizzas!

Goodness Burger!

I may have a love hate relationship with pinas pero if there’s something to brag about the Philippines, it’s definitely the people doing their own way of helping one another. Sooo tara! let’s Enchanted Cafe ourselves!

 

Enchanted Cafe is located at the 2F, Human Nature Building, 463 Commonwealth Ave., QC.

DAVAO AdvenTour : Wild Water Rafting — HIGH FIVE!!!

Filed under: Tara na byahe tayo! — jenkifer @ 12:01 pm

Alo pipols! So now, i’m back with more kwentos from our Davao Adventure 😀 Mula sa unang post ko, namention ko na bumili kami ng voucher mula sa MetroDeal.com na makapag tour sa napakalaking siyudad ng Davao…. day 2 ng aming tour yun Wild Water Rafting sa Davao River 😀

hanapin nyo 'ko! :")

Wild Water Rafting was a super fun experience! Nakakatawa pa kse sobrang excited ko mag water rafting… pangarap ko yun.. AT kung hindi ako nagkakamali, yun pangalan ko (or any Jennifer’s) ay mula sa white water… hindi ko alam pano nangyari yun pero umOO nlng kayo hehehe…. So yun nga… Sobrang excited talga ako nun pero si Franco parang — meh!.

Kinaumagahan ng day 2 namin sa Davao, parang bigla ako kinabahan na ewan… Shempre nung briefing pa nagpakita pa sila ng video ng what to expect… Akalain mo yun mga pinapakita nila eh yun mga raft na nag ccapsize with matching metal na music sa background ampf… so sinong hindi matatakot don!? (sayang walang video nung preview nila 😐

Eto na lang sampol… this is our “team” bravely facing the first major rapid ng Davao River, ang tinatawag nilang “Kiss The Wall”

Mukhang katakot noh?! pero akshuli mabait pa daw yung Davao river nyan. Usually bigger yung rapids if may bagyo daw or maulan sa may Cagayan De Oro 😀

Hindi talga ako sure kung ano difference between yun track ng CDO and Davao but one thing’s for sure, nunui and I had an awesome time hehe

 

DAVAO AdvenTour : Metro Davao Part 2 August 15, 2011

Filed under: Tara na byahe tayo! — jenkifer @ 8:21 am

Ang nakaraan…

chinismax ko lang naman yun mga kaganapan sa napakagandang hotel namin na Crown Regency Residences 🙄

ayos na sana eh... sablay lang talaga yun rooms and yung service ng cafe >.<

At yung first half ng adventure namin sa DAVAO!

Ngayon, ituloy natin ang kwentuhan sa iba pa’ng mga lugar na maaring puntahan sa napakalaking siyudad na ito (teka nosebleed na aketch sa tagalog 😐 )

Ang isa pa’ng dapat hindi ninyo palagpasin ay ang pag punta sa Jack’s Ridge. Eto yun Davao version ng TOPS sa Cebu. Nasa mataas na parte ito ng Davao na kung saan kita mo yun city lights ng Metro Davao. Pinagkaiba lang nilang dalawa, mas asteeg yun Jack’s Ridge kse may gimikan. So habang may mga nagddate sa may mga puno puno na overlooking ng isang sementeryo para sa mga susyal eh makipag cheers ka muna sa mga kasama mo sa isa sa maraming BARS na nasa Jack’s Ridge.

tgs tgs tgs tgs

Let me just share something din pala. nung nasa Jack’s Ridge kme, magugulat ka nlng kase may naka display na mga kabibeng malalaki…..

Kabibes on the loose

Eto naman pala kasagutan….

ahhh yun naman pala.... gusto nyo ba tagalugin ko pa?! >.<

Kung trip nyo naman mag Zip… malapit nlng dito yung Zip City (kasama din pala to sa package namin pero hindi na kme nagpunta kse … wala lang hehehe… di lang namin trip mag zip kse nakapag zip na kme before sa Subic nyehehehe)

Now, kung may oras pa kayo, drop by Blugre Coffee and try Davao’s Durian with Coffee… hendee… hende durian saka kape na tipong snack…. as in coffee mixed with Durian!!! at ang tawag dito ay ang mejo nagiging matunog na Durian Latte… Akshuli maraming coffee shops sa Davao na nag ooffer nito.. hindi ko alam kung sino may pasimuno pero sa Blugre ko ni try yun coffee na to…

Durian Larcepuccino @ Blugre

Anyhoo, nang dahil nga sa may itinerary na kami / kasama na sa voucher namin yun mga pupuntahan namin sa Davao, ang dami pa namin na miss na places to go… So shempre, talagang kulang ang 4d/3n na trip to Davao kse super daming places to go to and stuff to try…

Eto ang ilan sa mga hindi namin na puntahan…

1. Philippine Eagle Center – about 45 min. drive from the heart of Davao City… at pag sinabi ko’ng 45 min drive.. hindi eto yun QC to Megamall na drive ha… tipong 45 min of probinsha driving… soo mejo malayo sha. anyway, ayaw din pumunta ni franco dito kse tambayan din ng mga kabarkada nyang mga ibown 🙄

3. DECA Wakeboard Park — yeah… i know… better pa din sa CamSur hehe

4. Magsaysay Park – Sabi ni Muhther (mom ko) dito ka makakabili ng Durian and Pomelos and other pampasalubongs. 

5. Aldevinco – pasalubong shopping center… usually mga Batik Batik ekla ekla. i’m not sure kung meron din mga cheap durian delicacies jan pero cguro naman meron 😀

6. Malagos Garden Resort – Nature tripping lang din… pero tambayan din ng mga tropapips ni franco… lam nyo na kung ano yun

 

These are just some of the places na narinig ko na must see places… I’ve signed up before sa TripAdvisor and yeah…. ang dami pa naming mga dapat puntahan…. 

 

Sadly, hindi namin nakita yun Mt. Apo kse mejo cloudy sa Davao nung nagpunta kami. Sad…. Anyway, babalik pa naman kme sooo, anong malay natin mayaya ko pa mag trekking si Prang hahahah

 

owells… on the next episode… ikkwento ko naman sa inyo yung 1st evah experience namin mag Wild Water Rafting sa Davao 😀

DAVAO AdvenTour : Metro Davao August 13, 2011

Filed under: Tara na byahe tayo! — jenkifer @ 6:24 pm

Nang dahil sa pagiging adeek sa mga group voucher sites, sinwerte nanaman kme ni Franco ng voucher from metrodeal.com para sa isang ADVENTOUR sa DAVAO… For only Php 7,500 kasama na dun yun 3d/2n stay sa Crown Regency Residences for two (2) including Breakfast, City Tour, Wild Water Rafting and Day Tour to Samal Island…

MetroDeal voucher

Matagal tagal ko na din ginustong pumunta ng Davao but then mejo alanganin pa to’ng si Franco kase yosi kadiri pa sha noon. (Narinig nya kse dun sa isang friend namin na Bawal mag Yosi sa Davao hehehe) Sooo… buti nlng tapos na yun Yosi phase ni Prang 😀

Days before our scheduled tour, naghanap ako online ng mga must-see places or must-try stuff. Gawain ko talga pag first time pupunta sa isang lugar. Pero, sa kinasamaang palad, parang hirap na hirap ako nun and very limited lang yun mga nakita ko (sakto lang din kse narealize ko kulang din pala kme sa oras hehe kse may itinerary na kme)

@ Jack's Ridge

MetroDeal.com Itinerary at mga side kwentos

Sa post na ito, pagusapan natin yung mga nangyari samin nung day 1 ….

Kinuha namin yun 7:55 flight via Cebu Pacific pa-Davao. Hassle-free naman kse nakapag Web Check-In na kme… (Side note: sa mga bibiyahe via Cebu Pacific… super time saver and Web Check in! once naprint nyo na yun boarding pass nyo – kahit the night before – derecho na kayo sa boarding gates. No need to wait in line para mag check in! – kung matagal nyo na alam to, pasinsha naman, ngayon ko lang nalaman toh 😳 )

Dumating kami sa Davao ng mga 8:45AM (hindi naman mashadong nagmamadali si manong Pilot at ang aga ng arrival namin…), luckily may relatives kami sa Davao (shout out to the Lopez’s! 😀 ) kaya may sumundo samin from the Airport. Hindi kasi kasama yun transfers sa voucher (boo! – hotel shuttles will cost around Php 800 – one way – for 8-10 pax kaya mag taxi nlng kayo Php 150 lang)

Mejo nadismaya lang kme sa Crown Regency Residences. Ineexpect kase namin ni Franco na since Crown Regency tapos based pa on the room na we stayed nung nasa Cebu kami eh nice sha. Ayus yun staff, super bait, wala kaming negative na masasabi tungkol sknla. Decent naman yun lobby and villas but our room 😯 … garabeh! pag pasok namin amoy baul yun room tapos yun switch para gumana yun power nasa labas! (pano kung napagtripan ka tapos tinanggal yun plug ng power sa labas- instant brownout ka! 😕 )

Pool area and Villas of Crown Regency Residences, Davao

We didn’t bother taking a pic of our room na kse baka lalo lang kayo ma turn off eh super bait ng mga tao dun 😀

Day 1. METRO DAVAO

Dapat eto ang mga pupuntahan namin: Crocodile Farm, Butterfly House, Cultural Village & Zipline Adventure . 

Pero since gusto namin mag spend ng time with my relatives, nag decide kme ni franco na i-cancel nlng yun day 1 trip c/o Crown Regency and kami na lang pupunta with my cousin. (Kinaganda nun, binigay pa din ng Crown Regency yun tickets para hindi na kami magbabayad ng entrance fee … AYUS! 😎 )

After namin mag check-in, sinilip namin ang bagong mall ng Ayala sa Davao…

Ayala Abreeza Mall, Davao

had lunch at Seafood Island tapos kopi at Starbucks (side kwento: Starbucks sa Abreeza Mall yun kauna unahang starbucks sa mindanao – sa pagkakaalam ko – and op kors sa Davao. unang araw ng pagkakabukas ng starbucks sa abreeza abot hanggang parking daw yun pila! GARABEH! hahah)

Para hindi masayang yung oras, derecho na kme ng Crocodile Farm Park. 

kala ng crocs, lunch time na nila >.<

Malapit lang yun crocodile park sa Metro Davao – ayoko sabihing davao city kse Davao City itself eh napakalaki na… Sa pagkakaalam ko, Davao city is the largest city in the Philippines in terms of land area. Sabi ng cousin ko naman, sa buong mundo daw, largest ang Davao city talga in terms of land area (shempre, tinanong ko si pareng Google at mejo sabog din yun sagot nya – meron Japan, Mumbai, tapos meron pa to’ng isang city na hindi ko ma pronounce… so ewan) 

look at dat croc! anlakeee!!!! that's Pangil pala. friends na kme >.<

The Crocodile Park is located inside Davao Riverfront Corporate City. At shempre hindi lang Crocodile Park ang masisilayan mo dun. Sa loob ng DRCC, andun na yung Butterfly House and Cultural Village (Tribu K’Mindanawan) na kasama sa package ng MetroDeal. Hindi na namin pinuntahan yun Butterfly House kse sawa na kme sa butterflies 🙄 yun Cultural Village naman, sa gabi pa pala yun happeningsh kse meron pa palang fire dance na nangyayari with matching fire works (HAN SOWSHAL talga ng tribu na to! meron pa silang mga ganun ganun)

Rock On!!! \m/

Aside from yun famous landmarks ng Davao na matatagpuan sa Davao Riverfront Corporate City, like yun mga namention ko kanina… Dito, makikita nyo din yun Riverfront Grill, kung saan makakasampol ka ng mga exotic dishes tulad ng Bayawak, Ostrich, Crocodile at kung anu ano pa. Meron din dito’ng Ostrich Pen (tambayan ng BFF ni Franco nyehehe – side kwento: may major major phobia kse sa ibon si franco… kahit na sisiw lang or maya, takot yan >.< )

Ostrich to Franco : "I know where you live....."

Meron din Zorb Zorv Experience (lam nyo yun malaking ball na papasok ka sa loob, tapos magpapagulong gulong ka pababa ng hill), sabi ng cousin ko meron din Airsoft field, Motocross Track, at Soccer Field na pwde din pagdausan ng Frisbree competitions hehehe…

Teka. break muna… parang mashado na mahaba to. buryong ka na?! HAHAHHA geh geh…

 

on the next episode of our Davao AdvenTour.. ikkwento ko naman ang Part 2 ng Metro Davao Esfiryens namin 😀 

 

sa uulitin mga bata…

 

 

 

The 10 Commandments of Fat Loss (REPOST) August 10, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenkifer @ 3:33 pm

Here’s the 10 Commandments of Fat Loss by Chris Mohr. Belly Off! Nutritionist for MEN’S HEALTH Magazine

(Nunui found this online) (I’d suggest printing this as a daily reminder).

 

1. Thou Shalt Plan Ahead. It’s a no brainer – to be successful in any area of life, including fat loss, you must plan ahead

 

2. Thou Shalt Eat Clean 90% of the Time. This weekend we broke this “Commandment.” But you know what, it was part of our 10%. The key is not that we enjoyed some cake (something people think we would NEVER touch) … the key is that we got right back to normal with the first meal this morning. Eating cake, desserts, etc is fine … occasionally … as long as you bounce right back immediately after and get back to “normal.” Those types of foods become an issue when they’re more than “once in awhile” foods. To make this more straightforward, if you eat 4 meals per day, 7 days/week that’s 28 total meals. 90% of 28 means 25ish meals are great choices and it leaves room for about 3 not so great meals. (eto yun sinasabi namin na choose 1 cheat day)

 

3. Thou Shalt Eat Breakfast Daily. Simple. Straightforward, but a MUST to lose fat, preserve muscle, and maintain the fat loss. The key is making the right choices, which means a lean protein (like eggs), some fruit and/or veggies (see #6 and 9)

 

4. Thou Shalt Eat Protein with EVERY Meal & Snack. Protein helps fill you. Protein helps you repair and recover from exercise. Replacing junky carbs (white bread, sugar, cookies, pastries, etc) with lean protein is smart for permanent fat loss.

 

5. Thou Shalt Lift Weights. Let’s face it — for you to get in the best shape of your life, you MUST include some type of resistance training. Cardio won’t cut it so if you’re running or walking for exercise and think that will transform your body, it won’t.

 

6. Thou Shalt Eat Veggies with Each Meal. Most people think you can only eat veggies at night … if at all. Wrong. Mix them into eggs like, add some to a wrap for lunch, use a wide variety for the base of your salads AND at dinner. Not many foods in the diet provide more bang for your buck than veggies.

 

7. Thou Shalt Not Eat Cereal with Cartoons on the Box. So while the “2nd Commandment” says to eat breakfast daily, it doesn’t mean eating sugar filled junk … and that’s exactly what the “cartoon on the box” cereals are so avoid ‘em like the plague.

 

8. Thou Shalt Move Daily. While this may sound the same as the “4th Commandment” it’s not … this is in addition to training with weights. Lifting weights is great, but let’s say you do that for 60 minutes per day (and that would even be pushing it for most people). What are you doing the other 23 hours? Usually sitting … all day at the office, all night in front of the TV. If this is you, you’re an active couch potato. Move as much as possible. Take a walk at lunch time for half your break. Get out after work, take the kids to the park, etc. Just move. As much as possible.

 

9. Thou Shalt Eat Fruit with Each Meal. We often hear that fruit has too much sugar or certain fruits are off limits. Couldn’t be further from the truth. No one became overweight from eating too many fruits. The more colors you eat, the better, so mix in a nice variety of dark colored fruits regularly).

 

10. Thou Shalt Only Eat Ingredients You Can Pronounce. This means eating less packaged foods. We had cake this weekend. Kara made it. From scratch. And it was a pretty nice looking Elmo, if I say so myself! This even goes for “energy” bars, shakes, or other pseudo health foods (yes, even the organic ones) that have a laundry list of ingredients.

 

Print this list. Keep it close to you and we guarantee that if you follow these “commandments” you’ll certainly be much better off with your weight, health, appearance, energy and pretty much everything else in life…

 

 

Update: lost 22 lbs. na as of July 31 (started May 22, 2011)

 

 

 

Jenki’s Guide To a Healthy Lifestyle July 25, 2011

Filed under: Buhay-Buhay — jenkifer @ 2:06 pm

Reminder bago magbasa ^_^ : I am not a Nutritionist, nor a Physical Therapist. I don’t have a degree in Medicine, at kahit isang unit ng anything medical related wala akong kinuha. 

 Nabuo ang guide na to habang nagbabagong buhay ako. Together with my hubby’s online research and suggestions from friends, this guide helped me loose 7kgs in less than 1 month. Pero shempre, aanhin mo ang guide kung hindi mo din tanggap sa sarili mo na gusto mo na talga magbago. diba?

brief kwento:

I started switching to a healthier lifestyle nung isang linggo na biglang halos lahat nlng sa pamilya ko eh nagpatingin sa doctor. Mom ko, dad ko, mom ni franco AND even franco was taking maintenance meds for their sugar and cholesterol. Franco, his mom and his aunt started their own Biggest Loser Competition and pinipilit nila ako sumali. At first ayoko, I was in denial eh. Iniisip ko hindi ko kelangan sumali kse masaya naman ako… then na realize ko, at my weight, I was lucky enough na hindi pa ako umaasa sa meds para mabuhay. So I decided to join them. The initial weigh in was a wake up call for me. Yun ang bumasag ng denail stage ko. My starting weight was a whopping 194lbs! (6 lbs nlng pwde na ako sumali sa biggest loser HAHAHA) 

As of this writing, (after 43 days / 6 weeks) I am now 178.2lbs. hooray for meeh! (could’ve been less kung ndi lang ako naka vacation sa ilocos for 4 days nyehehe)

here’s what i did.

FOOD~

1. stay away from rice! eto ang culprit talga ng diet ng pinoy hehe

2. say no to desserts / sweets

3. Eat small portions every 2-3 hours

4. as much as possible stay away from fried food

5. water water water

6. choose 1 cheat day a week (kme it’s always sunday cheat day) . you get to eat whatever you want pero not to the point na mag pig out ka. yun tipong enough to satisfy your cravings for the week.

7. be bestfriends with reployo and kamote (it sips away yun water retention in your body)

8. before you start your day, get a shot of black coffee.

9. last meal of the day should be more or less an hour before going to sleep.

10. if you want to do calorie counting, check rmr rate (resting metabolic rate) tapos results nun bawasan mo ng 500 cal. thats’ the amount of calories na you should be taking in a day.

11. drink a cup of coffee or tea 30 mins before your meal.

here’s a list of the stuff na i eat. (choose 1 or 2 per meal)

– 1 pack skyflakes oats and fiber crackers (not preferred pero for variety)

– 1 piece of wheat putok (sm hypermart)

– 1 wholewheat bagel

– 2 nilagang saba

– 2-3 nilagang kamote (better yun orange/yellow variety)

– veggie all you can (better no dressing, kse the big calories in salads are in the dressing)

– 1 bowl of quaker oats (no sugar, no milk) 2 tbs of oats : half cup of water

– non-fat / low-fat milk (1 glass a day in the morning)

– tuna in can (better yun light variety ng century tuna)

– if you cant live without rice talga, opt for brown rice (1 cup per meal lang or less)

– 1-2 slice wheat bread

– roasted chicken (don’t eat the skin)

– 1 cup chicken sotanghon (better if made from scratch)

– fish (in any lute but better kung grilled / steamed)

– anything na ulam basta no rice (ulam shud be prepared in healthy way like nilaga, grilled, poached, steamed, less oil) if you want fried, choose yun healthy na oil to fry (NOTE: olive oil is not meant for frying)

– fit cereals (half cup lang)

– hard boiled eggs (2 per meal : eat 1 with yellow tapos yun 2nd white lang)

– whey protein first thing in the morning (1 scoop : 8 oz water) 

– fruits (pineapple, apples) try to stay away from mangoes or sweet fruits

– 1 can of pineapple juice a day

– coffee or tea… (better option green tea) 

EXERCISE:

1. cardio cardio cardio

2. kelangan mo pa din mag weights. don’t think na porke nag wweights ka eh you’d look like vina morales with all those muscles. do minimal weights at high reps. muscles will help burn your fats AND it’ll help tone those saggy arms and thighs.

(habol ko nlng kung ano work out na ginagawa ko)

3. alternate target areas (like mondays, upper body … wednesdays, lower body…. fridays, chest and back) parang ganun…

4. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) example, Stationary Bike

for the first 3 mins, warm up ka … yun saktong may pressure lang sa bike

on the 4th min mark, pedal ka ng super bilis! ilabas mo lahat ng energy mo

on the 5th min mark, rest (not rest as in stop, rest as in normal pedaling again)

on the 6th min mark, bilis nanaman

do this for 15 mins (yun alternate bilis – rest)

on the 15th min (to 16th) cool down, remove pressure on the bike tapos pedal lang for 1 min.

TIPS and THOUGHTS

1. on the 6 day course of diet, DON’T CHEAT! (kahit sabihin mo sa sarili mo “konti lang naman eh” / “kaya ko naman bawiin to” / “pwde naman as long as they don’t find out”) YOU ARE NOT CHEATING ON THEM, YOU’RE CHEATING ON YOURSELF.

2. don’t skip breakfast. it’s the most important meal of the day

3. try not to skip a meal kse if you skip one, your mind will think na kelangan bumawi sa next meal. therefore, takaw tingin.

4. DON’T FORGET your cheat day. important to kse it’ll help your body think na it’s not fasting. once your body think na it’s on fasting mode, mag addjust sha sa diet mo therefore it’ll maintain yun burning rate nya. gets?

5. stay away from people who will bring you down. stick with people na GV! (good vibes lang) kse these people will make you feel good lalo na sa 6 day course na nagpapakahirap ka

6. The first 3 days might be hard pero think positive lang

7. Loosing weight is as tough as for people who wants to GAIN weight. (mas kawawa sila kse kahit anong kain nila they won’t gain weight talga – gustuhin man nila) trust me i know people who NEEDS to gain weight pero hirap sill.

8. When going out with friends on a diet day, choose the lesser evil (ex. pag nasa jollibee kayo for a kiddie party, mag spaghetti ka nlng hehe)

9. Try looking for friends who would want to join you on your journey to a healthy lifestyle tapos gawin nyo’ng mala biggest loser din! (i noticed kse na people are more focused in their work out kse laban sha) our laban naman, contenders will bet Php 5000. Whoever lost the most gets the pot. (pwde din mag side bet like 500 per person and 2nd placer gets the side bet or something)

To sum it all up… Here’s the 10 Commandments of Fat Loss (Nunui found this online) (I’d suggest printing this as a daily reminder).
