TIPS: How to Place Order from Elars Lechon in Quezon Avenue

One week ago, Carmina had pointed to Mom Violy there is a place to order her lechon. Mom Violy said, let's go there one day. Carmina was able to bring Mom Violy to  Elars Lechon . The branch we went too was in Quezon Avenue which is close by. First step is to enter in their office facility to place your order.  The person inside will ask what you would like to order. Here is their price list: What they offer for Christmas in case you're interested in it. It is very easy to place your order those who are just walking in out of curiosity. Second Step: Go outside and hand in your order at the counter where you can see the lechon in front of you being chopped up on based on the weight you've made. The lechon will be placed in a box along with the lechon sauce inside an eco-bag. Mom Violy is very happy that she was able to buy her favorite Elars Lechon.

Do you know who Jed Pakwan Black Beauty is?

  Do you know who Jed Pakwan Black Beauty is? It is the name of the watermelon Carmina had ordered through Metro Mart application at the Landmark to purchase it. On the label of the watermelon it says Jed Pakwan Black Beauty price of PHP 193.25 ($3.87) the weight is 3.04 kg for unit price PHP 63.50. The best part from the price Jed Pakwan Black Beauty is sweet with seeds. For all we know during summer season we prefer to eat fresh fruits the reason why I prefer yellow over red watermelon. In the Philippines the yellow watermelon is sweet and small not like the red ones are expensive and we tend not to be able to finish it. Note: Carmina is not selling or advertising for Jed Pakwan Black Beauty just wanted to eat yellow watermelon. Subscribe @ Facebook Page Carmina Lifestyle  a place to look, discover and share.

Dinner Rolls

From there on a notification popped up saying Landmark has new arrival items in their store. Carmina went to check it out and found these Gardenia Dinner Rolls. Gardenia Dinner Rolls remind me of the dinner rolls when you eat at a restaurant that serve it to you before your actual meal with butter to spread. Gardenia Dinner Rolls you don't need to add butter since it is flavored butter inside the dinner rolls. They are soft and small portion enough to balance out what you plan to eat. There ways to add inside your Gardenia Dinner Rolls by anything you plan to eat today I had added my sardines that I had also purchase in the same grocery store of Landmark. Not only that I had added sunny side egg with my breakfast meal is Carmina's way how I eat my sardines. You won't believe the price of the Ga

Assi Brand Honey Ginger Tea

  Carmina can no longer count how many brands of Honey Ginger Tea she has tried from Korean, Singapore and local made in the Philippines. You can say I've tried a lot being my favorite drink before I go to sleep. Yes it is true it is healthy for you. Yes it does make you go to the bathroom a lot but to me I am use to it. I have been drinking ginger tea for a very long time. I don't like my ginger tea without honey. I've tried it before I couldn't handle the taste being too strong for me. I prefer the ready to drink version instead of making it homemade from your own kitchen. How does it look from inside the Assi Brand Honey Ginger Tea bottle? What is the ingredient? It is indicated on the bottle for you to read. In case you want to see the actual bottle how it looks with how much it weighs Carmina had purchase her Assi Brand Honey Ginger Tea from  Ceci Korean Grocery  through Grab Mart application for PHP 300.00 ($6.00) not including handling fee and tip to the rider.

Brown Sugar Boba Ice Cream Sandwich

Carmina went fishing through online Grab application to look for something to cool her off in the Philippines. Even if she knows she is suppose to be in a diet. Carmina notice she has gained some weight from her food ventures and the worse part it is so hot and humid in the Philippines. Carmina is happy that she doesn't need to go outside because the feeling of the hot breeze going to your face and sun glaring at your eyes makes it even worse. Carmina found a new milk tea ice cream not knowing how it looked since there was no picture from  Sarang Korean Mart  it is called Samanco Boba Ice Cream Sandwich for PHP 252.00 ($5.04) of four pieces 150 ml seem a great deal for me. Carmina was reading the package it is actually Limited Edition Binggrae Samanco Brown Sugar Boba Ice Cream Sandwich made in Korea. In the past I was able to try their other flavors from Red Bean Paste with Vanilla  Ice Cream, Strawberry Syrup with Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Syrup with Vanilla Ice Cream and Gree

Mango Ice Cream

From being too excited seeing the Binggrae Samanco Brown Sugar Boba Ice Cream Sandwich made in Korea Carmina didn't notice she placed the wrong flavor of Melona Ice Cream in her cart when she had purchase in the same Korean Grocery store. Carmina only realize it when it had arrived in her home being in a box of eight pieces. A family member asked for Melona Ice Cream but in Honey Dew Melon Flavor. Oh well cannot do anything everyone makes their own mistakes not like the person doesn't eat mango. 😆🤣 In case the family doesn't eat it more for Carmina to eat. Oh my diet will be ruin. We can always eat it on our cheat day that can be every day. Of course we can limit ourselves and keep it in the freezer for the meantime since it doesn't expire until March 16, 2023 that is a long time. By the time it reach year 2023 it has been consumed by someone else. If you don't know Carmina she love to joke around one secret of looking young being mistaken to be a kid. The great p

The most common food in the Philippines to eat anything close to eating Hawaiian food is consist from Hawaiian pizza that is locally made in our area or hamburger that has a pineapple inside to make it sound tropical. Carmina went to dig deeper to find something else that carried Hawaiian barbecue to say she is really eating Authentic Hawaiian food.
