Calamansi and Honey Juice - A Natural Way to Cure Cough and Colds

October 18, 2016 0 Comments
When I was still a kid, my grandmother would make us Calamansi and Honey juice whenever we have cough, colds, or both. It's natural and effective in our experience... Now that I became a mother, as much as I wanted to, I don't like my daughter to take a lot of medicines especially Antibiotics or Antibacterial medicines, but there's always an exception if worst comes to worst. If possible I try to make juices out of natural products like Calamansi and Honey

Both Honey and Calamansi has antibacterial and antiviral properties and calamansi is high in Vitamin C which is good for boosting our immune system. I don't have to worry letting my daughter drink calamansi and honey juice because it's natural and proven to be effective, in our experience. Unless your kid is allergic to any of the two, then you shouldn't let them take it.

Recently, Miel had cough and colds, so, we bought calamansi and honey. It's actually my first time to buy honey in the supermarket and it's also our first time to try the Mt. Apo Honey which is actually made in here Davao. We usually buy honey from our neighbor before but we just moved far away from the place we used to live, so I opted to buy honey in the supermarket instead. ;)

Anyway, I made Calamansi and Honey juice for my Miel and I hope her cough will be gone soon..

Sudden Addiction to Cactus and Succulents

May 17, 2015 0 Comments
It's been a while since my last post because I've been busy with different events for "A" Creative Events. ;) I've been busy with my plants too, re-potting them after I got them during the SM Agro-Trade Fair last April of 2015. I think I bought around 10 kinds of cactus and succulents that time... hahaha! Well, we already have a few cactus at home which had been with us for around 5 years already although it's just one variety, it's from a Gymnocalycium specie... I think this is the most common cactus that you can see here in the Philippines... :)

The mother of all our cactus and the very first ones that we had... A Gymnocalycium anisitsii ssp. damsii...

Yup! It has a lot of babies and look at its roots! ;)

I was so lucky to have friends who gave me some cactus and succulents which I will be blogging, soon... ;)

Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp

July 10, 2014 0 Comments
If there's one restaurant that I love and would love to recommend, it's non other than Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp. It's not that expensive and you'll get really satisfied for what you've paid for.

The first time I've tried their food was way back in year 2008 and from that moment, I kept on craving for their dishes and most especially their pastries. I personally loved their Durian Cheesecake and Sans Rival.

Durian Cheesecake


Classic Sans Rival and

Durian Sans Rival

I wouldn't miss those two whenever I'm at Lachi's, al though sometimes the durian cheesecake which is their best seller by the way, is not available or it's all consumed. I guess a lot of people really love it and I am just one of them. ;)

Here are some of Lachi's delectable home-cooked meals:



The Unforgettable Grilled Pork Ribs is one of their best sellers too, it's meat is tender and absolutely delicious. When you've tasted this dish, you would know why it is named Unforgettable Grilled Pork Ribs, because you would never forget it for its flavorful taste.


Have you heard of Pork Marina? I've heard of Seafood Marinara but it's my first time to hear about Pork Marinara at Lachi's. It's a spaghetti with cheese and tomato sauce, topped with crunchy breaded pork strips. It is one of the dishes that I also loved at Lachi's, well I actually love most of their dishes, lol. :)


If you're looking for a healthy meal, the Breaded Soft Tofu with Teriyaki sauce is best for you.


Elsie's melt-in-your-mouth roast pork is also a must try. It's meat is so tender and it is really good, we can't help ourselves from eating it. I'm glad we tried it. If you're up for a spicy dish, I recommend their laing.


Below are just a few of their mouth watering dishes that you should try...

Chinese Pork Belly

Kaldereta

Beef Tapa

Other pastries that you must also check out:

Strawberry and Blueberry Cheesecake

 Cashew Mocha Torte


Creme Brulee

Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp is own by twin brothers Melvin and Mike Aviles.


Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp is located at Ruby St., Marfori Heights Davao City. Most of the time their place is always full so I suggest you call them at 224 5552 and have a reservation. ;)
