Food and Gifts

Cafe Bene

Finally, my son and daughter-in-law had the chance to visit Caffé Bene last night and had a great experience on their food. I asked them to bring home something for me coz I’ve been craving for their pastries ever since I tasted it when I was invited on their Triangulation Challenge event last month where we did coffee tasting. Hoping to come back there too when my busy schedules permit, with all those activities lined up for the whole month and the coming holidays, good luck to me, lol… anyways since gift giving season is just a few weeks to go, early shopping if I may for my dear ones is on the planning stage, if not in the department stores or mall, online store it will be where I can order now or shop later for their gifts.  :)

Delicious Crab claw meat for breakfast


We discovered a new delectable partner for our bread, a little different from the regular processed meat we eat like ham, hotdogs or bacon, but a crab claw meat we usually add as ingredient to our sauteed veggies or soup. And this is the first time to fry and eat it for our first meal of the day, now ending up as a delicious addition to our breakfast table, a partner with fried rice or bread plus a cup of hot coffee, perfect! A new discovery like this Daddario brand for my son’s guitar accessories. –  chow!

6 Easy Ways to Improve Your Health and Fitness

When we decide to improve our health and up our levels of fitness, we often attack the situation head on, feel worse for a few days and then give up exhausted. There is an easier way, one that is much kinder to your body, and ultimately much more likely to succeed.

Here are six tips to help you get healthier. Try to implement them gradually into your life and you won’t even realize you are making radical changes, but you will gradually start to feel better.


  1. Eat

If you eat well 80% of the time then the other fifth of your diet can be made up of treats. You don’t have to become obsessed by calories and grams, but eat moderate amounts of protein, carbs and fats and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Farm food delivery By Good Grub People brings high quality grass fed meat straight to your door, so it’s easy to incorporate the good things into your diet.


  1. Walk

Whether you start to commute to work on foot, or you get out at the weekends and discover the local countryside, walking is really good for you. Not only can it help you lose weight and get fitter, but being outside also gives your Vitamin D levels a boost and fills your lungs with fresh air.

  1. Drink

Don’t forget to drink your 8 glasses of water every day. It’s easy to become dehydrated and our bodies suffer with a host of ailments that can be easily avoided. Drinking more water also helps with your beauty routine, especially in the winter when we are exposed to cold and winds outdoors and central heating indoors, all of which dry out our delicate skin.

  1. Sleep

We might fight it, but our bodies really need at least 6 to 8 hours of refreshing sleep a night. Ban TV and any form of screen time, such as tablets or computers, in the hour before bed. Wind down instead with soft music, a great book and a warm drink, such as milk or camomile tea. It will then be much easier to drift off to sleep when your head hits the pillow.

  1. Stress

Stress is something that we definitely need less of and it is easy to miss the signs that it is affecting us until it is too late. Stress can have a very detrimental effect on our health, leading to weight gain, insomnia and more seriously some debilitating illnesses. Take time therefore to make sure you wind down regularly in whatever way suits you best: taking a long bath, getting a massage, exercising or even consider options such as mindfulness and meditation.

  1. Fun

When we are children our prime objective in life is to have fun. Much of this is lost as we grow older, start work and fill our lives with responsibilities. It is still a worthy objective, however, whatever your age. Find out what fills your life with fun and joy and go out and do it. Maybe you want to learn a craft, go salsa dancing or build a bookcase. Being absorbed in a hobby that you love has been shown to have a positive impact on your health. What other reason do you need?
