For the foodie

The new Bida Mamen comes in two variants: Pork and Spicy Chicken
Photo release

Craving something new and exciting for merienda? Or getting tired of the same ol’ noodles? Kuya J Restaurant’s new Bida Mamen is here to make afternoons more delicious by combining the nostalgic warmth of the beloved Mami with the robust flavors of Ramen. This new offer makes for a perfect afternoon snack or merienda, or when you’re craving a warm bowl of great noodles any day of the week.

“At Kuya J, we want to introduce one-of-a-kind and innovative products that will excite our customers,” shared Carlo Fajardo, Chief Marketing Officer of Kuya J. “We wanted to bring something new to the table that’s as Instagrammable as it is delicious, and we know Filipinos love warm and comforting food especially for merienda. The Bida Mamen will hit all the right spots with the first spoonful.”

The new Bida Mamen comes in two variants: Pork and Spicy Chicken. The Bida Pork Mamen features a pork bone broth (cooked for more than 10 hours to maximize the flavors) with their signature egg noodles and steamed bok choy then crowned with two slices of slow-cooked marinated pork belly — grilled to perfection for a pleasantly smokey flavor profile. 

For foodies who love a little heat, the Bida Spicy Chicken Mamen is a deliciously spicy Mamen with Kuya J’s signature noodles topped with stir-fried ground chicken and house-made chili oil. This Mamen is also made with their special pork bone broth and the spice level can be adjusted from Level 1 (Mild) to Level 3 (Hot).

A hearty bowl of Bida Mamen costs P239 (dine-in price) and is best enjoyed at the restaurant. Diners may order additional signature egg noodles for only P50 and complete their meal with their choice of iced tea or soda (at an additional introductory cost). 

Fajardo shared that Bida Mamen is part of the wave of upcoming offers in an effort to refresh the brand, giving diners more reasons to keep coming back for more Kuya J goodness. Diners can look forward to more innovations from the hard working team behind one of the fastest growing homegrown food chains in the country. Diners can now order the Bida Mamen in over 60 Kuya J branches around Metro Manila for dine-in, take-out, or order online via www.central.ph/eats.

For beach bums

Away from all the overwhelming noise of the nightlife that other major cities of Palawan are known for, there hides a serene paradise within San Vicente. A quiet town with the longest white sand beach in the Philippines and the home of Holiday Suites: Port Barton.

When it comes to the perfect getaway, one of the most famous islands in the country is Palawan. With hundreds of resorts spread throughout the cities of Puerto Princesa, Coron, and El Nido offering activities ranging from banana boat rides to deep-sea diving, Palawan is undoubtedly one of the sure-fire locations to book your mid-year vacation.

Away from all the overwhelming noise of the nightlife that other major cities of Palawan are known for, there hides a serene paradise within San Vicente. A quiet town with the longest white sand beach in the Philippines and the home of Holiday Suites: Port Barton.

Convenience has always been an essential factor in finding the right location for a perfect vacation. Fortunately, Holiday Suites: Port Barton offers both convenience and a blissful experience like no other. There is also a wide selection of amenities to make your stay a vacation to remember.

Aside from the tranquil, air-conditioned rooms with breathtaking views overlooking the sandy beach and clear water, Holiday Suites: Port Barton is equipped with a poolside bar and restaurant. The hotel also offers an arrangement of island activities for the whole family to enjoy. Once all the tiring activities are out of the way, everyone can rest up and enjoy a relaxing hot shower in their hotel room that offers room services and free Wi-Fi. Whether planned or just going with the flow, Holiday Suites has everything to fulfill all your recreational needs.

Ana Lustre-Malijan is a successful young entrepreneur and one of the proprietors of Holiday Suites: Port Barton. Growing up in a family of engineers and witnessing her father operate their family business, this inspiring act sparked the desire for Ana to have a business of her own. The dream quickly became a reality when Ana successfully launched her first milk tea business, Frotea. Now, she’s branching out into the hospitality industry. Holiday Suites: Port Barton was born and provided more job opportunities for her community in Palawan.

“Port Barton has always been close to our hearts,” Ana said. “One of the earliest projects our construction company had was in Port Barton, so I remember going there during weekends with our family. We were looking into opening another property in El Nido when this opportunity came up.”

When asked about the decision to venture into the hospitality industry, Ana shared some insights: “An unfinished hotel was placed on sale, so we grabbed it. We have been in the construction industry for the past 40 years, and when we were looking at how we could diversify our business in our 30th year, we decided to venture into the hospitality industry since Palawan Underground had just been named one of the Seven Wonders of Nature."

Holiday Suites: Port Barton is a newly opened beachfront hotel and resorts property located at Barangay Port Barton, San Vicente, Palawan. For more information, visit  https://portbarton.holidaysuites.ph. Holiday Suites is also available for online bookings at Agoda and Booking.com. 

Muchos, Boracay’s hottest Latin American Kitchen and Bar aims to deliver a lot of flavor and zing to the island’s famed shores. While this fresh hotspot by Station 1’s beachfront just opened its doors in March 2022, it has easily become one of Boracay’s bounce-back beacons — helping revive the island’s vibrance, injecting post-pandemic freshness, and offering superb sensorial pleasures and great eats.
Photo release

Muchos veers away from the typical mex-mix restos and embraces the Latin vibe with mucho gusto. Think: South American spices, fun bursts of palate surprises, traditional Latin fare (Brazilian, Peruvian, Bolivian, etc.), a showcase of the diverse tastes and colors from Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America. The result? A true reflection of the Latinos’
colorful cultural history on every plate, all while pulling from the freshest catch and produce available in Malay, Aklan.

So far, the Muchos concept has been warmly received by Boracaynons and visitors alike. It has been gaining raves for both its diverse menu and couture cocktails. Its tequila and mezcal bar (the first of its kind here on the island!) and its margaritas are now island faves. Its tacos and Latin mains now have an avid following. With a trusty ceviche lineup and ultra-
fresh Latin bowls, guests can enjoy tropical freshness in creative ways.

Muchos also adds to the fun Boracay vibe with novel experiences to try— Friday serenades, sunset hangs, Latin dance nights. These shake up the usual bar rounds, and helps create interesting and lasting memories of the island paradise. And since the kitchen bar is right on the beach, Muchos is a convenient walk along the shore and has a breathtaking view of Boracay’s majestic sunset. It has become an easy fave of island regulars who want that extra TLC when it comes to food and service—a luxury on an island that’s often too busy for that personal touch. This, according to Muchos’ restaurateur couple Patrick and Shria Florencio (also of Boracay’s Nonie’s and Little Taj), is what truly sets Muchos apart: its standing belief that “everyone deserves nourishing food and excellent service.”

Muchos is a family endeavor, and joining the duo are Patrick’s brother, a passionate Mariachi performer; Patrick’s sister, a fiery Flamenco dancer; and their sister-in-law, a lovely Latina who hails from a quaint town in Brazil. They all agree that the dining experience is more than just yummy grub; it’s a holistic experience. It’s food with fab ingredients, service that
makes you feel at home, and a cultural treat that still honors its island home, Boracay. At Muchos, they’re definitely not scrimping on anything—interiors, food, cocktails, or experiences. Diners will surely get the best Latin-Boracay experience on the island during every visit. At this Latin kitchen-bar, everything is always a little extra—because islanders deserve Muchos of the good life. Muchos is at the Ground Floor of the Zuzuni Hotel, Station 1 Beachfront and is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

For fur babies

Celebrity couple Megan Young and Mikael Daez are the new ambassadors for Doggo, touted as the only Filipino-owned dog care brand in the Philippines. Together with their furbaby Soba, Megan and Mikael are ecstatic to represent paw-rents who are looking for the perfect partner in caring for their dogs, and have found one through the brand's treats, care products, and accessories.

The multi hyphenated pair – actors, models, podcast hosts, and vloggers – are fur-parents for almost three years now, after getting Soba on their wedding month in January 2020. Their toy poodle has since been a bundle of joy, and they have added another toy poodle, Chia, to their growing family which also includes Salem, their cat.

Partnering with Doggo is an opportunity that resonates with the two, especially after feeling the fulfillment that comes with being a dog parent. “We’ve fallen in love with Soba and part of that love means that we want to care for her in the best way possible. We want to provide the right products for her, find the right brand that carries these products,” shared Mikael.

The timing couldn’t have come at a better time, since the couple discovered the brand this year and were invited to be part of the brand afterwards. “I like the leash plus the beds look amazing! We’d love to get lots of those beds because currently, Chia, Soba, and Salem all share the same bed,” Megan quipped. She is also particularly fond of the brand's toys as they’re the perfect fit for Soba and Chia’s playtime. Treats are another product line that she aims to try more for Soba, who especially enjoys them during training.

The announcement from the brand also coincides with the launch of its wet food lineup. Soon, all Doggo retail channels in-store and online will offer two wet food flavors: Tasty Chicken with Sauce and Juicy Beef with Sauce. Made with 100% real meat, the brand's wet food is flavorful, chewy, comes from natural ingredients, and contains high protein and high fiber for dogs of all breeds.

Apart from food, the brand is also adding the Madre de Cacao with Jeju Extract variant to its shampoos and conditioners, and a couple of new flavors for its dog treats.

“We continuously innovate and strive to provide products that our customers need. The introduction of our wet food line and the launch of Megan and Mikael as our new brand ambassadors underline our commitment to become the foremost partner of every dog parent in giving their pets the most thoughtful care possible,” said Doggo Chief Kurt Cheng.

“It’s the love we have for our furbabies that connects all of us,” Megan enthused.
