Close to 2,000 Cebuanos gathered with their family and friends last May 10 to be part of the Jollibee Family Bee Day held at Plaza Independencia.

Dubbed as the grandest family picnic ever, the outdoor event featured fun games, awesome raffle prizes and exciting performances top-billed by young stars such as Gerald Anderson and Julie Ann San Jose. Rock band Sponge Cola also got the Cebuanos singing and dancing on their feet.

Apart from the game booths and side activities, picnic-goers posed for and captured picture-perfect moments by the giant picnic basket and photo frame installations.

The Jollibee Family Bee Day was mounted by the country’s number of fast-food chain in five venues. Apart from Cebu, it was also staged at Quirino Grandstand in Manila, Bayanihan Park in Pampanga, Nuvali football grounds in Laguna, and Crocodile Park in Davao with about 10,000 people in attendance.

“The Jollibee Family Bee Day is our way of uniting Filipinos nationwide as one family,” said Jollibee Philippines Vice President for Marketing Harvey Ong. “It is a grand celebration of what family truly means to us Filipinos. Apart from those we’re related by blood to, family also include the people nearest and dearest to our hearts.”

Miss Scuba Philippines 2014 in Cebu
The Search for Miss Scuba Philippines 2014
I personally believe that water is life and there is a reason why 70% of the world is water. I lived in a place where splashes of the sea wakes you every morning for about 21 years and I know how it feels if your main source of food (the sea) is damaged. Yes, my family had that moment and was a good eye-opener for us to be more conscious with our action and the environment.

Durian Halo-Halo in Cebu - Frozen Snack Bar

Frozen Snack Bar proudly promotes their best-seller Durian Halo-Halo!
Frozen Snack Bar proudly promotes their best-seller Durian Halo-Halo!
A big HELLO to my dear readers who are originally from Davao and are now working/living in Cebu, your smiles must be up to your ears right now. Hahaha!

I have traveled back and forth to Davao and with my (more or less) 4 months of exploring Davao, I saw how the Davaoeños eager for more Durian inspired delicacies. They understand that liking Durian is an acquired taste. So, they incorporate Durian with different products to be more salable  and customer-taste-friendly such as candies, ice cream, coffee (which I absolutely love!), cakes, halo-halo and so much more!

(Check out my Davao travels here.)

I prefer my Durian straight from the fruit and frozen. Unlike processed products, it still gives you the original flavor of what Durian tastes like. Chilling/freezing only lessens the aroma of the fruit. With that, I would like to share what Frozen Snack Bar has to offer.
Frozen Snack Bar offers Durian Halo-Halo with Durian straight from the fruit! Exactly what I prefer!

Tonkatsu by Terazawa now in Cebu

Tonkatsu by Terazawa now open in Ayala Center Cebu
Tonkatsu by Terazawa now open in Ayala Center Cebu!
The reason why I love travelling, aside from learning other culture, is to widen my culinary horizons with new food and taste. I must admit, I was born with a family orientation that 'whatever is in the table, you it' and that is basically how I role. Friends normally call my tummy a black hole because I simply eat-and-eat-and-eat. I guess for me, it is simply black and white per Chef Gusteau (from the movie, Ratatouille) saying: 'I don't like food; I LOVE it. If I don't love it, I don't SWALLOW.'

Though I'm lucky enough that a Japanese friend of mine gave some tips while we ate at Tonkatsu in Ayala Center Cebu. We both got the Chef's specialty which was the Kurobuta Rosu Katsu and I must say that it was crispilicious! It was just well cooked and you just want to eat more and more. I almost forgot that they give you rice and shredded cabbage until you remember what gluttony means. Lol! Their Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream Cake is also a must try!

Everything inside this restaurant is just wonderfully packaged and want you to visit them again and again! More photos below.
Tonkatsu by Terazawa also offers their special sauce to experience taste with their shredded cabbage.

My Life Lately

My Life Lately

Hey guys! I know...I know... It has been a really long while and I am really sorry for not updating you guys about my shits and all *spank me now. lol!* There did came a point that I emotionally died inside and out *now I know how it feels to be in-side-out boy from Cartoon Network. lol!*. A long, long, long story that I don't want to tackle right now. I know I'll just laugh about it sooner or later. Though, I am really hoping for it to come sooner. Okay, enough about emo shit! Hahaha!

I have ALOOOT of backlogs that I still need to cover and I hate myself for being so unprofessional and unproductive. I have not been (or rarely) accepting invitations not because I do not like it or too busy, but because I feel crazy guilty that I wont be able to write reviews about it.

My goodness, this is going back to an emotional post and I don't want you guys to feel my aura...so as an ambassador of positivity and good-vibes, I wish you all a wonderful week ahead and stay strong in life. Remember, challenges will always be there and it is up to you how you will take that challenge. According to John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, 'Sadly, the world is not a wish-granting factory.' So you just got to live life to its fullest and work your ass off so hard to get what you want. That my friend is a fact.

So let's toast to life and to those wounds that never heals. *klink*

(NOTE: I might to travelling for a while with less Internet connection so if you want to be updated with my shit, you may follow me on Twitter or IG: rabsin_d).


Much Love,
