A good Filipino traditional food in Hermana restaurant, Ayala Malls Serin Tagaytay

Hermana restaurant in Ayala Malls Serin, Tagaytay City

We discovered Hermana restaurant located in Ayala Malls Serin in Tagaytay City, it’s a nice restaurant that offers a a traditional Filipino taste and flavor. At first it looks like an upscale restaurant due to its interiors and colors. I admit that we skipped on visiting this restaurant during the 3 day old opening of the mall complex here in Tagaytay City. On our first visit to this restaurant, we took the time to check their menu outside and there I was surprised that the price of the food is just right and okay.

CD-R KING has been in the industry for 20 years and they recently brought in California E-bike in the Philippines.

Today's modern world, Technology allows us to travel anywhere we desire but this also translates to 65% of air pollution in the metro.

Luckily, Technology has earned a good side by giving us an alternative by travelling in style and comfort on E-bikes.

Use of E-bikes does not require a person to hold a valid driver's license neither it requires a registration.
Helmet is not imposed but your safety is a personal choice.

California E-bike started its operation in the Philippines early 2013 with E-Scooter and later on came out with other variants of e-bikes. Today California E-bike offers more than 20 variants in more than 40 branches.

With the steady growth of e-bike followers, California E-bike is gearing towards its mission to improve transportation in an eco-friendly way, one e-bike at a time.

California E-bike variants ranges from personal use such as Berkley, Fresno, Hensley, Compton and Sierra to mid-range as Reedley, Colton, Canyon, Highland, Rialto, Ridge, Siberia, Davis, Ventura, Stockton and Avalon. They also offer business type models such as Ontario, Truckee, Maybury and Malibu.

Upgrades and Accessories are also offered by California E-bike for safety and aesthetics. Their shops also offer compartment upgrades, LED Spoke and wheel lights and bike motor locks to name a few.

Included in the exhibit is one of their latest offering- Malibu, this is their version of the Segway. Malibu boasts of a Lean steer frame (LSF) height adjuster, if you are familiar with Segway you know how hard it is to grip the height adjustment knob on the LSF.  Simply slip this tool over the knob and give it 1/4 to 1/2 turn beyond finger tight and your LSF will be much harder to move while gliding or pulling it up stairs.  Malibu also features a smart balancing system that makes it user-friendly even for beginners.

Another featured variant is Berkely Smart Balance Wheel, with an Anti-slip rubber pedal and a 360 degree turning capacity. This variant is also equipped with a smart balancing system.

James Hardie is the world leader in fiber cement technology. We have been in the building materials industry since 1888. Our company is founded on new developments and discoveries through our steadfast commitment to research. In the 1980s, we pioneered the development of asbestos-free cement boards. Since then, we have become the highly respected innovator and leader of fiber cement building materials. James Hardie boasts of 127 years of global knowledge and 19 years of local edge. We established our business initially in Australia, then we have expanded to New Zealand, the United States and in 1996, the Philippines. The manufacturing facility in Laguna does not only supply cement boards locally but all throughout the Asia Pacific region straight from our plant in Cabuyao. To add to that, the factory creates sustainable jobs for Filipinos.
Utilizing our global research team and with our experience in the Philippine market, it is apparent that the realities of a tropical country are much different from where we started. Keeping in mind the Philippines' notorious extreme weather swings, James Hardie building products have been designed and developed to withstand the local climate. The high temperature and high pressure treatment we enforce in our cement boards increases the durability of our products and minimizes movement due to temperature variations. From our ceilings, walls and flooring to our senepa, eaves and siding, if it has the HardieFlex® or HardiePlank® trademark, it was designed exactly for the needs of the Filipinos.
Based in the Philippines for almost two decades now, it is obvious that plywood and concrete hollow blocks are still being predominantly used in the construction of homes and this often leads to rapid deterioration. Whether it be due to water damage, fire, impact, or termites, houses quickly lose their initial sheen. If you have become a victim of these perennial damages, James Hardie would like to help you. We will  prove to you the premium quality of HardieFlex® backed by its resistance to moisture damage, fire, termites, and impact.

Ramen Daisho adds more Japanese food starting this Summer 2015

ramen daisho manila

Ramen Daisho is really flying high at the mid of summer 2015, because they added more new Japanese food for the pinoy ramen lovers. It will be weird now for a ramen house to offer more than just ramen, because ramen houses in Japan just offers ramen, but here in the Philippines, our taste buds wants to taste the common and popular Japanese flavors, that’s why we love to order lots of sushi, makis and ebi tempura as add ons to our main course. But for common ramen houses, its only ramen, so what happens if a pinoy customer wants to eat a sushi or sashimi in a ramen house? yeah expect some disappointment and temptation, because your taste buds will push you to the limit to visit the next Japanese restaurant after devouring your hot and tasty ramen.
