BLUE POST BOILING Crabs & Shrimps with the Boys (A Review)

Blue Post Boiling Crab & Shrimps-41.jpg

It’s hard to please our boys these days. While they’re each growing up with different eating preferences, all of them demand yummy, satisfying food. 

For Sunday lunch, we decided to eat at Davao’s famous Blue Post Boiling Crabs & Shrimps, to satisfy our craving for seafood (especially after our recent trip to Ireland) and our Gen Z kids’ need for interactive and delicious food. 

We even had a discussion on sustainability, to teach our kids to only support establishments that are sustainable. 

Here’s what we think about Blue Post Boiling Crab & Shrimps…

KCON2017 Social Media Post - Event Details

It’s the third quarter of the year and we’re nearing the end of 2017. You have to congratulate yourself for everything you have accomplished so far. How about some time to slow down a bit and give yourself a time to breathe and just see how far you have come for the year?

I know there are still a lot of things on your plate, but I also know that there are just so many things to be grateful for at the same time. Find a rewarding break to finish the year strong at the Kerygma Conference (KCON) 2017: COMMITTED on November 23 to 26, 2017.

 

I haven’t met anyone who regretted joining the KCON at the SMX Convention Center and SM Mall of Asia Arena. Attendees always say it’s life-changing.

Here’s what the event is all about:

#Philippines, Boracay Island

SUNNY SIDE CAFÉ BORACAY: Best All-Day Breakfast on the Island?!

Sunny Side Café is located along the white beach of Station 3 Boracay. Famous for their all-day breakfast menu, they specialize in comfort food and contemporary breakfast dishes that are never boring!

We love their concept of twisting classic breakfast favorites such as their Ube & Cereal Milk Pancakes, Bacon and Mango Grilled Cheese, and Sunny Side Café Champorado (made with Malagos Chocolate and topped with caramel ice cream, mango, and candied bacon).

They are the only restaurant on the island serving specialty coffee. The dishes are all made from scratch–from their bacon, chorizo, and soups, to their bread and pastries that are freshly-baked in-house, every day!

Here’s what to expect at Sunny Side Café…

Lumago Designs is a sustainable, eco-friendly, social enterprise, that is dedicated to improving the livelihood of women from Candau-ay, a large Barangay located on the outskirts of Dumaguete City and home to a large scavenger community.     

Lumago Designs blossomed out of the Dumaguete City dumpsite shortly after Typhoon Sendong had devastated the community in 2011. Today, Lumago employs mothers from the Candau-ay community and trains them in the design and manufacturing of beautifully handcrafted jewelry that is locally-sourced with repurposed materials from the dumpsite.

OKTOBERFEST MANILA: German Club Oktoberfest @SofitelManila vs October Beer Festival @CityofDreamsPH

OF`0

If there’s one thing you should get pumped up for in October, it’s Oktoberfest! 

Oktoberfest is a traditional German festival that celebrates everyone’s favorite things–food, beer, singing, and dancing! It isn’t just a traditional beer fair, it’s actually one of the best celebrations of them all. 

The official celebration takes place in Munich, Bavaria, but so many other places try to copy this awesome festival, including Manila, Philippines! However, no matter where you celebrate, there are always a few things you can expect: mouthwatering food, lively people and music, and huge amounts of beer. 

This year, Oktoberfest came to two of the best hotels in the city. Sofitel held its 79th German Club Oktoberfest on Oct 7 and City of Dreams, Manila hosted their own version of the festival on Oct 12. Both were grand, fun, and with lots of merrymaking! 

Here’s a photo essay of Oktoberfest in Manila…

Culinaire is one of SMX's biggest events of the year–a celebration of all their top accredited caterers and partners!

This year's theme–A Flight of Flavors–was different and a bit more fun. SMX designated one country each for their 14 caterers to showcase their respective food. For one night, guests had a chance to travel to different nations and gain access to some good food. These countries include Japan, Spain, Korea, Thailand, Philippines, Italy, Brazil, Germany, Turkey, India, France, USA, China, and Mexico. 

The event was held last October 3 at the SMX Convention Center, Manila and was also a joint celebration of SMX Manila's 10th Anniversary, Megatrade Halls's 25th Anniversary, SMX Davao's 5th Anniversary, and the Sky Hall's 1st Anniversary.
