HOW TO COMMUTE FROM CUBAO TO EYMARD DRIVE IN NEW MANILA

HOW TO COMMUTE FROM CUBAO TO EYMARD DRIVE IN NEW MANILA

Hi peeps! I know some of you are wondering how to commute to New Manila because of the Free Concert that I posted several days ago to be performed by the Philharmonic Orchestra at PETA Theater in New Manila. See the link Here

So to stop you from your agony, I asked my brother of www.yummy-tales.blogspot.com and Dan of PETA some tips on how to commute to New Manila. Here it goes:

  1. From Aurora Boulevard in Cubao, ride a jeepney with a ESPANA signage.
  2. Go down at Caltex station in between Christ the King and Quezon City Sports Club.
  3. The street besides Caltex is Eymard Drive so enter that side street then walk for a minute
  4. Voila! #5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City na!

Happy Commuting! Take Care and hanggang sa muli folks!

Cuisinart Unites Blending and Cooking in One Innovative Product

Cuisinart, America’s Leader in Premium Home Appliances, has created a lifestyle workshop, in partnership with Rustan’s, entitled “Soup Du Jour”, to launch its newest innovative product, the Cuisinart Soup Maker. This versatile machine makes hot soup, whips up smoothies, crushes ice and does much more.

Soup is one of the most diverse and beloved dishes in a home cook’s repertoire, and has been a staple of kitchens around the world for centuries. Traditionally, soups of all kinds are prepared in stages: chopping vegetables, slicing meats, prepping and measuring herbs and spices, and of course, actually cooking the soup. Now, consumers can do all of this – even cooking – in the new Cuisinart Soup Maker (SSB-1). This innovative new blender utilizes patented technology that allows for cooking and stirring ingredients, which allows permits fresh homemade soup to be prepared from start to finish: the nonstick heater plate can be used to sauté ingredients, simmer and even boil soups, all of which can then be blended to the perfect consistency with the touch of a button. In addition, the blender is ideally suited for more traditional tasks like crushing ice and blending smoothies and cocktails.

“Cuisinart is proud to introduce this exciting new blender, and to once again change the way consumers think about preparing meals at home,” says Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart. “The Blend and Cook Soup Maker is ahead of the curve, as it addresses a need for expediency in the kitchen and offers a level of performance and convenience that is unrivaled in the category.”

What to Look for When Purchasing a Blender:

Performance:

Cuisinart’s Soup Maker has numerous features that allow home cooks to make any soup, chowder or stew quickly and efficiently. The blender has 1000-watts of cooking power (with the blender alone, without the heater, being able to achieve a maximum of 500-watts) and a thermal, shock-resistant glass blending/cooking jar with a sturdy, wide-mouth design. This unique blender jar can hold 1.4 liters of hot liquids and 1.75 liters of cold liquids, with markings for each clearly visible on the jar itself. The dial allows users to choose speeds from one to four (one to two only for blending hot ingredients) and pulse ingredients to the desired consistency. The blender also has a countdown timer that can be set for up to 30 minutes in one-minute increments. In addition, a leak-proof rubber gasket holds the blender jar snugly in position for safe operation.

Design:

Aside from the ability to cook ingredients, the Soup Maker has other significant design elements as well. The unit has high, medium and low temperature settings to ensure that any type of soup is brought to the proper cooking and serving temperature, as well as a stir function that gently mixes ingredients as they cook. The Soup Maker is also designed with a nonstick interior and cooking plate and is equipped with high-quality unique stainless steel blades with a unique design for thorough blending and ultra smooth consistency.

Convenience:

Cuisinart’s new blender offers a lot of convenient features, including an easy-to-read LED 30-minute countdown timer to allow for perfect timing, whether preparing a light carrot and ginger soup or a hearty corn and clam chowder. The blender also has a press-on lid with a tight-fitting seal to prevent leakage, which is equipped with vents to allow steam to escape during the cooking process. Additionally, the lid includes a removable measuring cup that allows home cooks to measure up to three ounces of ingredients to add through the lid opening created by the removal of the measuring cup. Lastly, all removable parts of the unit are dishwasher safe.

Edsa Shangri-La Manila

The wedding banquet of my cousin was held at Edsa Shangri-La Manila last Sunday, May 27, 2012. Good Food plus good people equals good times. Everybody had a blast.

Fasten your seat belt and let’s start the food roll. Be blown away by this menu.

First on the menu is the Seafood Roll. It is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yummy!! Everybody on the table just love this seafood roll.
 The seafood roll was followed by Pomelo in wasabi sauce. Refreshingly delicious! I love this!
 Scallop dumpling is also very tasty.
This Fried Soft shell crab in pork floss was not a hit at our table but still it looks delicious..

  King prawn coated with cornflakes. It was so yummy it was gone in a flash ha ha ha.

My cousins and I were joking around looking for milk when we saw the corn flakes ha ha ha! Wherever we go cornflakes always remind us of breakfast and milk, right?

 I simply love this Braised four treasure soup with crabmeat.
 Seafood fried rice in lotus leaves.
This was so yummy! I love it!
 
By this time, I am so full I wasn’t able to taste this Pan-fried cod fish in light sauce.
 Sauteed beef tenderloin in black pepper sauce.
Very interesting Chicken in money bag.

Lotus bun looks like mini-siopao but has sweet fillings inside.

Dessert was Chilled mango pudding. It was so hard to get a great shot with the kind of lighting they have at Isla Ballroom.

I love the mango pudding though. It was so yummy!

Verdict: Yummylecious!  5 star

Congratulations and Best Wishes to the newly wed.
