Pizza Treat by Pizza Hut

Mozarella. Ever since having overdosed on them
with Persian labneh's, the rubbery cheese on
pizzas don't dazzle me anymore. 

A few media men and women were treated today by Pizza Hut with some of their newest pizza pasta offerings. Not really a Pizza Hut fan (more of a Sbarro, definitely Sbarro, and probably, I'd like to imagine, Yellow Cab and Giuseppe's Pizzeria because I've only tasted their pizzas once or twice, but I think I liked it.) But Pizza Hut pizzas are delicious, not just my kind of delicious. But that's not gonna stop me from writing about them and  promote them, even, if duty calls. 


New Bohol Bee Farm Fave: Fresh Veggie Lumpia

This Vietnamese spring roll inspired veggie lumpia is too yummy. 

We got fortunate, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Bohol gave us the opportunity to peek into their successful program SETUP or Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program which "aims boost small and medium enterprises’ (SMEs) productivity and competitiveness by assisting them in adopting technological innovations to improve their operations."

We got a chance to visit and interview some of their grantees. Bohol Bee Farm, being one of DOST's pioneering grantees, albeit not necessarily with SETUP (probably with Manufacturing Productivity Extension (MPEX) Program), we had our lunch there and was given the pass to observe their tea-making operations, as well as some of their self-made innovations that help Bohol Bee Farm become the Bohol Bee Farm we all love.

This new ice cream (sorbet) flavor - TOMATO - however,
gets a D for not tasting like tomato, at all.
It's delicious, no doubt, but where's the tomato?
Of course, the squash muffins never fail and so are
the signature 'palaman' of the Bohol Bee Farm!


I like them slightly burned.

Dinner. Pan-grilled pork with spicy rub. Corn kernels and crispy
burnt caramelized onions on the side.
Tryin' out our new electric stove and non-stick pan. Besides, I haven't eaten the whole day and was cravin' for a real good meal, with meat, preferably, pork. This was yum. Even the onions.


Newest bar in town, I mean, across town!

Decent dig. Not really. The food's not yet there, yet.
The ambiance could get a little more punch to it,
like a triple scotch, maybe. But, hey, it's new! Tara!
McGen Coffee Lounge & Bar is located in Totolan, Dauis. So you could make sense of the 'kitsh' name, it's supposedly named after the owner, so be kind. ;) It doesn't help that the logo makes you think fastfood. So, oops.
