They launched four limited drinks two days ago and I got to try them all.

Here’s Why You Should Switch to Soy Milk

I’ve always loved soy milk but back then, I enjoyed it merely for the flavor. I liked the creamy texture and the slightly nutty flavor. It was only as an adult when I started taking care of my health when I began reading more about its popularity and benefits. Now, I mostly drink plant-based milk, with soy as one of my favorites.

Those looking for nutritious and yummy soy milk can now taste the joy of soy with Vitasoy Plus Milky. It’s made with the finest ingredients and delivers the natural goodness of soy; but with the milky taste, creamy texture, and health benefits.

Still not convinced? Here are the reasons why it’s soy good for you (lol).

Vets, Experts, and Furparents Share Tips on How to Train Puppies

I’ve been a furmom for over a decade and to this day, there are things I still learn about my senior dog. This is especially true when my family moved to the US and I was left to care for Oreo on my own (the dog on the left is Georgia, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2017). So when I heard that Royal Canin organized Start of Life, A Facebook webinar series about the different stages and milestones of furbabies, I knew I had to go.

The first leg of the series, Royal Beginnings: Kickstart your Puppy’s Best Life, was specifically for puppy owners. Oreo may be a senior dog but I’m sure every furparent agrees that their dogs will forever be babies to them. When I took my role more seriously, I finally understood why my mom kept saying I’m her baby, even if I’m already in my early thirties.

Below are some of the tips I learned from the veterinarians, experts, and furparents who spoke. I’m sure you’ll find them useful:

I Tried Chowking’s Meatier and Saucier Chunky Asado Siopao, Here are My Thoughts

I was home during this year’s Lunar New Year so I made do by ordering boxes of tikoy and cooking them. Ideally, I would be in Binondo watching the celebration and eating at one of the many of the Chinese eateries in the district.

The pandemic has forced me home, but I’m happy because I got to try Chowking’s Chunky Asado Siopao, which is now even meatier and saucier!
