Organique Acai: The Super Food Supplement

With all the new health drinks and exotic fruit blends being introduced in the market, you’d think you already know every single possible fruit that had been juiced… right? The tallest palm tree in the Amazon jungles called “Acai” (pronounced ah-sah-ee) bearing dark purple berries has been used for centuries to help cleanse and detoxify the whole body. This “superfood” prompted husband and wife, Elton and Cathy Salimbangon to introduce the Organique Acai Premium Blend way back in 2010.

Yesterday at the Makati-Shangrila Hotel, Organique Inc. introduced to media and bloggers the “minted makeover” packaging of Organique’s Acai Food Supplement, as well as its newest celebrity endorser, supermodel and role model Tweetie De Leon Gonzalez.

Tweetie was more than happy to be the new advocate of Organique Acai Premium Blend. “Organique Acai Premium Blend keeps me feeling good, keeping my acid reflux at bay,” she said during the media launch yesterday. Even during out of town trips, she makes sure she takes a small bottle containing the liquid supplement for her daily dose.

The Acai berries is small, dark purple in color that have been a staple in the diet of the indigenous people of Brazil for centuries. They consume it regularly and it is what they use to remedy aches and pains, from infection to stomach problems.

Touted by many as the king of superfoods, the acai berry is rich in antioxidants which combats cell damage.

“It’s basically a cellular approach, our cells are being attacked by free radicals from the pollutants around us, antioxidants help repair them,” Cathy simplifies.

“So your body is replenished and functions better overall. You have more energy, signs of aging are delayed, your immune system is strengthened,” she adds.

Acai berries also contain omega oils which is necessary for the proper function of the brain and cardiovascular system. “It has all the basic vitamins and minerals that our body needs aside from being high in dietary fiber.”

I have been a user of this product ever since it was introduce here early last year and it has been a staple to my regular take on vitamins and a dietary supplement to my running.

This antioxidant-rich fruit has been heralded for centuries as a healing, immune-stimulating, energy-boosting fruit. An exotic relative of the blueberry and cranberry, research has shown that this antioxidant-rich berry may be able to support in the prevention of diseases associated with oxidative damage, not to mention many other health benefits.

The Salimbangon’s company called Organique, Inc. is based in California as it manufactures and distributes the full line of pure Açaí berry products formulated to the ideal standards of native Brazilians. This main product is called the Organique Acai Premium Blend. It’s fully concentrated and made from the finest all natural ingredients, FULL of antioxidants blended to perfection without preservatives and artificial additives. Also being introduced is the Organique Acai Freeze-Dried Capsules 650mg, composed of pure acai freeze-dried powder. It contains no fillers and other chemicals.

As the company grew and evolved, the Salimbangons felt the need for their packaging to do the same. “In order to thrive in a global market, we enlisted the help of a top designer we met during the Organic and Natural Health Show in London last year,”says Cathy.

“This new label incorporates nature in a simple yet elegant manner. With this, we aim to reach consumers worldwide and showcase our premium-quality organic products.”

Organique Acai’s new packaging

With the new packaging comes the newest celebrity endorser, no less than supermodel and former actress Tweetie De Leon Gonzalez! Tweetie exemplifies the brand’s values. She has maintained a healthy lifestyle, and at the age of 52, is now reaping the benefits. She is a working mother of four who not only built herself a career as a supermodel, but as a businesswoman as well. She is the epitome of the saying, ‘Health is wealth.’

Cazuela: A Spanish Restaurant In The Heart Of Ortigas Center

The Cazuela Restaurant is a food haven of Spanish cuisine in bustling Ortigas Center Business District. One of Sapphire Block’s (along Sapphire Road) best dining options, the Cazuela serves beyond the traditional Spanish fare that showcases local ingredients of various countries involved in the Spanish galleon trade to produce Spanish flavors. And it’s easy to see why it has become a local cause célèbre among the sociable office workers at Ortigas center.

Cazuela, we learn, is a clay pot used in cooking and serves as a vessel for combining ingredients to make sumptuous dishes. References to the mother country are plentiful: Dali-like paintings adorning its walls, a map of the old world, vintage-like wrought iron chandeliers and wine shelves that adorn the walls. Displays of Machuca tiles, Cazuela vessels and cup lanterns herald what is a reliably impressive modern bohemian feel.

The menu is solidly grandioso as the food is serve in imaginative variances, revealing a good deal of culinary expertise and sophistication, not to mention enthusiasm in the kitchen. Their main Chefs, Mon Urbano, Day Salonga, Andrew Espiritu and Cristina So are stars of their stage as they work out on the orders, grill, fry and plate up their creations in their smallish kitchen.

The pan-seared mackerel served on a bed of mashed potatoes was a surprisingly nice take on a traditional fish; the Costillas Asadas is  grilled pork spare-ribs, deliciously browned on the outside and tender on the inside. The Callos or ox-tripe was stewed to perfection bashed in flavorful tomato sauce while the Ox Tail Estofado was stewed in red wine, so tender you could feel it melt in your mouth!

Pan seared Mackerel (Served over mashed potatoes) – P 328.00

Costillas Asadas (Grilled Spareribs served with saffon rice) – P 428.00

Callos (Ox Tripe served with rice) – P 389.00

Ox Tail Estofado (Stewed and served with rice) – P 387.00

Their signature main course dish, the Veal Caldereta is a 400g veal shank, stewed and simmered in rich tomato sauce served on a bed of potatoes had a richness and subtlety worthy of much fancier venues. Muy delicioso!

Veal Caldereta (Veal Shank) – P 708.00

Tapas make excellent companions to lovers of wine and other spirits. Their selection are prepared with flair and creativity, and peppered with local niche ingredients (clams, home-made chorizo, truffled mushrooms, fresh baby squids and shrimps) with Pinoy influences. I took on the Sangria which were served with the classic tapas and nearly finished a pitcher-full of it!

My Sangria! – P780 (pitcher)

Gambas al ajillo – P 328.00

Baby Squid al ajillo – P 235.00

The Gambas and Baby Squid al ajillo came in small cazuelas, roasted in garlic-infused olive oil while the Tuna Ceviche came in a large platter covered under heaps of sliced greens and cucumber in vinaigrette dressing. The Paella Negra, a paella rice in squid ink and clams didn’t have the punch to stand up to the preceding dishes however, as the color must have been a turn-off to those not in the know but would be appealing to the more adventurous! And it tasted good!

Tuna Ceviche – P 229.00

Paella Negra – P 365.00

For dessert, the menu included the mouth-watering gypsy cake (Brazo De Fernando), the ultra-rich, ultra-“umay” Kesong Puti Cheese cake and the all-time favorite, Churros Con Chocolate.

Gypsy Cake – P 160.00

Kesong Puti Cheese Cake – P 220.00

Churros Con Chocolate – P 160.00

There are a few options for vegetarians here which is often the case for meat-centric Spanish restaurants but their Enselada Cazuela, topped with assorted greens, watermelons, candied wallnut tossed in chipotle cranberry dressing is a very good entree.

Similarly looking was the Orange and Crispy Duck Salad with Citrus Vinagrette. I tried this out mainly because it came with the promise of shredded duck. A promise it remained – whether they forgot to add it or sliced it too thinly it’s hard to say, but any iota of its taste was completely lost on me. Anyway, i’ll just try to concentrate on eating the greens, next time!

Enseleda Cazuela – P 238.00

Orange and Crispy Duck w/ Citrus Vinaigrette – P 256.00

Cozy, relaxed, and not taking itself too seriously, Cazuela exudes the true spirit of Spanish dining. Food prices, like the overall quality, are a little above your average restaurant but you’ll be having such a good time, it won’t seem to matter.

Great selection of Spanish and Italian wines

The restaurant is located at G/F The Sapphire Bloc, Sapphire Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. It is open from 11:00 am to 12:00 midnight from Mondays to Wednesdays and at 11:00 am to 2:00 am from Thursdays to Saturdays.

Valley Trail Challenge 2016: August 20, 2016

6th Valley Trail Challenge 2016

August 20, 2016
Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna
16K / 25K / 50K
Organizer: Frontrunner Magazine


The Valley Trail Challenge has a cult following of trail runners, from the hard core down to those who just would like to experience an easy, almost flat course and it’s among the gems of local trail running events.

This race really has something for everyone. For the road running regulars, it is a chance to test yourself against the trail running habitues on an almost flat terrain whether tackling the 50k ultra distance or shorter. For the slower, but fearless, there is an opportunity to do the course here in Nuvali, (in danger of being phased out because of rapid residential and commercial development) which covers approximately most of the scenic route.
 .
The event is surprisingly one of those very well attended and is well organized, from friendly marshals, adequate aid stations, a well-marked course and a sumptuous breakfast…all under the leadership of Race Director Jonel Mendoza and wife, Con.
 .
IF you are new to trail running or want to try to finish your first 50 km ultra, i can’t think of a better race. It also can serve as a great training run for something a bit more challenging.
 .
Here’s the review i did on this race last year when i got lost and wasted some precious time in back-tracking for the correct route. Hope this wouldn’t happen to you. https://jazzrunner.wordpress.com/2015/06/29/valley-trail-challenge-2015-my-short-race-experience/

Hukad at Golden Cowrie: A Taste of Cebu

Hukad at Golden Cowrie Restaurant, G/F Trinoma Mall, Quezon City

Every so often, a restaurant comes along that has me scrambling on what to taste first after seeing the dishes well laid-out and already spread at our dining table. My eyes were delightfully curious and mouth almost watering, this is the first impression i got upon entering the Hukad at Golden Cowrie Restaurant inside the Trinoma Mall.

Hukad means limitless serving of food or to limitlessly serve food on one’s plate and it’s an apt name for this cozy place serving Filipino food, some in home-style Cebuano offerings. It’s a cozy, unshowy restaurant that’s made a name for itself in Cebu and other parts of the Visayas and Mindanao with a short but perfectly formed menu and an easy-going conviviality.

It’s first branch in Luzon, Hukad-Trinoma is an exceedingly charming venue, its decor modeled on that of tree branches gingerly resembling a jigsaw puzzle, complete with  iconic puso-shaped lamps inspired by rice wrapped in a casing of woven coconut leaves typically served during meals in Cebu.

The menu at Golden Cowrie is uncomplicated and with its traditional Cebuano roots it’s also fairly familiar. Given that the Hukad’s name has become synonymous with Cebuano cooking, it may seem odd to highlight, of all things, their interpretation of familiar local dishes like Crispy Pata, Pork Sisig, Pansit Habhab, Lechon Kawali and the like which are familiar fares in the metro. But the mainstay of their menu, the Lechon Cebu showcases other dishes that is rightfully Cebu!

“Ngohiong” is a lumpia-like stuffing of grilled pork, singkamas and a special powder which has a peculiar medicinal but delightful taste, the “Bantayan Baked Scallops”, fresh scallops from Bantayan Island of Northern Cebu, the Pomelo Salad and the “Budbod Turon” with Chololate Syrup. It’s thoughtful yet simple… Cebu’s  sinful delights!

There’s an expertise to Hukad sa Golden Cowrie’s cooking that is both a feast to the eye and renders the taste buds excited as well. Favorites here include the “Sizzling Balut Sisig” with its delectable yolk, savory soup and its unrecognizable embryo, the “Tanigue Escabeche”, “Baked Bantayan Scallops”, the “Oxtail Humba” and the “Sinigang Baby Prawns”.

Only their “Crispy Pata” didn’t live up to our expectations. Though the deep fried pig leg was still tasty, it came a bit overcooked as some parts were tough to chew which should ideally be crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside. Here, the meat skin was burnt to oblivion!

Vegetarians needn’t go hungry. They got “Vegetarian Sisig”, same taste and experience, minus the guilt; “Grilled Vegetable Miki Noodles”, “Bloodless Dinuguan”, absolutely 100% meatless and bloodless. How, you ask? Taste for yourselves! Other green salads are also offered!

If you’re in Trinoma alone or with your family, visit Hukad which is near the garden entrance and enjoy Cebu’s pride of gastronomic delights!

Here’s a sneak peek of their offerings:
