One of the enduring hallmarks of our childhood are those huge Rebisco tin cans. In them are some of the most iconic snacks for older millennials, Gen Xers, and baby boomers: Hansel crackers, choco sandwiches, and its trademark crackers. Little has changed since the brand opened in 1963, but there’s a big shakeup that happened recently. For its 55th anniversary, Rebisco has partnered with four notable visual artists to create special edition cans with unique artworks.
There came a point in time when we all realized that plastic is bad. In a terrifying article by National Geographic last June, they declared that 40% of plastic is used only once and is killing millions of marine animals each year. Their brilliant cover featuring a bag that looked like an iceberg was hard to ignore. Now, plenty of people live zero waste lifestyles, while even more refuse single-use bottles and opt to bring tumblers around.
But what if I told you that there’s a pack of water you can buy that’s responsibly sourced and recyclable? Yes, it’s possible and Tetra Pak has made it a reality with their new drinking water.
Christmas is the one time a year when we all loosen our belt straps and eat to our heart’s content without any form of guilt. It’s something that Tim Hortons is counting on as they launch their Christmas menu and collection.
Many of us know Christian Mark Jacobs as the other (equally goodlooking) half of Francis Libiran, the fashion designer to the stars.

When it comes to coffee, most people think that it’s just a drink that can perk up the senses on an early morning. But people are becoming more creative, infusing it in food and other drinks to create new and unexpected flavors. Last October, Holiday Inn & Suites Makati celebrated Philippine Coffee Month with a selection of coffee-infused dishes and drinks!
Whenever I think of Ramen Nagi, the one word that comes to mind is decadence. Whenever I eat there, the restaurant goes all out in terms of flavors and ingredients. One look at any of the legendary Kings (Black, Red, and Green) and you know you’re getting a mind-blowing culinary experience. Now, the ramen place has outdone itself with the ultimate in decadence: the launch of the Truffle King.
One of my favorite parts of Christmas is the announcement and race for the Starbucks planner. I’ve been using planners since 2005 and have relied on it to keep track of dates, events, deadlines, and appointments, and the years have become more special because I use my handy dandy planner!
This year, Starbucks has outdone itself yet again by releasing four versions of two variants: two planners and two travel organizers. I have all the details for you and I’m doing another giveaway so check out what the coffee chain has in store for you:
I wasn’t able to join any Halloween parties or wear any costumes, but I enjoyed seeing photos online. Some of my favorite costumes were inspired by memes, and there was even one party where guests came as characters from the Crazy Rich Asians film adaptation! What did I do (and will continue to do) this Halloween season? Veg out in bed and watch American Horror Story and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Yes, I’m still too scared to watch The Haunting of Hill House!
I did get to participate in the season but I got to try Krispy Kreme’s new line of Halloween doughnuts. Hey, at least it’s something, right?
