Sasa Asian Cuisine gives a new take on Asian flavors

Care to taste something new? Sasa Asian Cuisine, located at Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons, gives a fresh take on Asian fusion cuisine that will be surely loved by Pinoys. Our favorite dishes from Japan, Korea, Singapore and Malaysia are made even better with a Pinoy twist, thanks to the genius that is Chef Raymar Reyes and his team.

We started our Asian fusion experience with the Fried Yasai Itame made of stir-fried vegetables placed in between layers of fried lumpia wrappers and drizzled with Japanese mayo.

Awesome Christmas finds at Groupon Goods

Wait, what? November is ending already? I’m almost hitting the panic button because I haven’t even started with my Christmas shopping, yet!  Last year, I was almost as busy so we ended up asking the househelp to cook a mean bagoong (shrimp paste) that we distributed to friends and family. But not everyone can have bagoong for Christmas, right?

Good thing, there are a lot of awesome Christmas finds at Groupon Goods. There’s something for the boss, something for my teen, et. al. I can even see something that I really, really love. Which gets me to share the link to my husband. I hope he gets the message, LOL! But seriously, though, Groupon has everything!

Here’s one that I absolutely love!
