rainy day Filipino food list

Whenever it rains, I have this craving for rainy day Filipino food that reminds me of my childhood in the flooded streets of Manila. There’s always something to look forward to after wading through dirty waters that can chase away the cold, and hopefully, the germs.

J.Co SM East Ortigas Now Open

J.Co recently launched it’s newest branch at SM East Ortigas and we couldn’t be more happier. Finally, our favorite “not-too-sweet” donuts are closer to home!
