Last March 20, 2017, Hormel Food Corporation's SPAM launched their SPAM CAN CAMPAIGN in the Philippines at Glorietta Activity Center, Ayala Center, Makati City.

The launch is open to the public with SPAM-azing activities. 

The public sing their hearts and emotions out with SPAM-azing activities like CAN-aoke.

Aside from the SPAM-azing activities, different varieties of SPAM dishes were introduced to Filipinos. A Chef demonstrated how to make SPAM fries and other cuisines that each member of the family can enjoy.

Filipino dishes made of SPAM were also placed on several booths so that the public can taste it.




Along with the introduction of spam dishes is the newest boy band in the country, ALL FOR SPAM. The group is composed of a young and talented man who loves SPAM. Supreezy, the bad boy, loves the Spam Hot and Spicy while Mad Mic, the goofball, can eat Spam Bacon 24/7, Pepper, on the other hand, is into the classic Spam and lastly, Ace or the Mr. Lover Boy of the band is as cheesy as the Spam Cheese Flavor.

The four would melt the hearts of Filipinos as they sing and dance the things that SPAM CAN do.

Another highlight of the event is the MAKE-A-HERO SPAMWICH. For PHP 100, the public made their own version of SPAM sandwich. The proceeds were doubled by SPAM and were given to Children's Hour Foundation.

Spam is a popular brand around the world. Its iconic taste and premium quality made it known around the globe and to date, it is sold in over 40 countries. SPAM can be eaten any time of the day. May it be pan fried or cold. SPAM had 14 varieties available in the Philippines- Classic, Lite, Less Sodium, Bacon, Oven Roasted Turkey, Hickory Smoke, Hot & Spicy, Jalapeno, Teriyaki, Black Pepper, Chorizo, Tocino, Garlic and With Cheese. SPAM's goal is to inform Filipinos about the dishes that they can make using SPAM.

Get Fit and Healthy With Fit Cuisne

There is a saying that "We are what we eat." Our food choices affect our daily routine, our life and most of all our health. The more we eat food rich in fat, salt, sugar and calories the more we fall into the pit of unhealthy lifestyle where different disease and sickness is waiting to attack our precious body. I know for a fact that each of us knows the cons of eating unhealthy food but we don't defer on doing our usual unhealthy lifestyle because doing so means a lot of conscious effort, self-motivation, continuity and most of all money. The reality is the healthier the food, the more expensive it is and the more effort we need to prepare it. Honestly, I don't have both that's why I fall into the pit of unhealthy lifestyle until I came across Fit Cuisine.

Fit Cuisine was established four years ago. Their vision is to provide healthy dishes to Filipinos without compromising the taste of their dishes and convenience of their clients. How? Instead of preparing your healthy meal and taking too much time computing and weighing every ingredient just to get the proper calories, protein, and carbohydrates, Fit Cuisine delivers delectable meals from breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner right in front of your doorstep. Each meal that they serve has low calorie, sugar, fat, and salt.

Aside from providing convenience, they also educate their clients by posting motivational before and after photos of their clients who lose weight and got healthier because of proper diet and nutrition. They also share the nutritional benefits of the ingredients that they are using on their social media accounts.

At first, I was hesitant to try this because a lot of people are telling me that delivered healthy meals have a bland taste but Fit Cuisines' meals are delectable and full of flavor. The meal set is delivered to me every night and all I need to do is reheat it every time I will eat. Surprisingly, the food still tastes good even if it is reheated. The price is reasonable considering the taste of each dish. Continuing my five days meal with Fit Cuisine will surely make me fit and healthy.

The natural shade of the earth incorporated in the area gave the room a warm, relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. It has two double bed set up which is ideal for family or group of four. For those who needs to work while on vacation, a writing desk is readily available in the room along with coffee and tea maker. The room is spacious and neat.

Before heading Tree Top Adventure, Subic, Azzurro Hotel treat us with a sumptuous breakfast at Terraza Roof  Deck Restaurant. The restaurant serves a Filipino-American breakfast buffet. Bistek Bangus, Assorted Sausages, and Penne are some of the dishes serve in Terraza. What I love about Terraza, aside from the food that they serve, is the panoramic view of the mighty Mount Arayat.

Capri Lobby Cafe and Bar has a relaxing and classy ambiance with its earth tone colors and elegant decor. The cafe offers snacks, pastries, and cocktails with relaxing music.

During dinner, Terraza Roof Deck Restaurant let us savor their best dishes. We started with Azzurro Green Salad with Asian Dressing.

The salad is composed of mixed green leaves with slices of cucumber, watermelon, red radish, feta cheese and drizzled with tangy mango Asian dressing. The salad is refreshing and sweet.

Along with the salad are the delectable canape starters with juicy shrimps.


We also tried Terraza's Chicken in Barbecue Sauce. The chicken is tender and oozing with barbecue flavor.

We ended our dinner with fresh fruits and my new favorite pastry, the cannoli bread. I love the flaky bread that wraps the creamy cheesy filling with chocolate bits. The bread is a must try and I will definitely go back to Terraza to grab a bite of this one!
