SHAKE THOSE BLUES AWAY AT SHAKEAWAY

(Too Hot? Hot Damn! 😂)

          I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before, but I don't drink coffee. So it's safe to say that I havent gotten bitten by the Frappuccino bug that everyone seems to go crazy over (Poor me, no planner every Christmas hehe). However, what I do love, is a good milkshake. So when the largest Milkshake bar in the world arrived in the Philippines, you can bet every cent you've got that I stood up and took notice! 

        Fortunately, the stars aligned for me when Shakeaway opened their second branch at Bonifacio Uptown Mall, and I happened to be around the neighborhood with some foodie buddies of mine!

BE HEARD! THE CHOICE 2017



Every month, every week, and almost every day it seems, there's a new restaurant opening in Metro Manila. There are a lot of great new dining choices, side by side with the perennials, the classics that we grew up with. As food bloggers, writers, and members of the F&B industry, we're always very curious about the crowd favorites.

The popular vote, if you will. So, Our Awesome Planet, the Blogger Collective known as the KTG (Kain Tulog Gang) and World Food Expo (WOFEX) have partnered to conduct the People's Choice for their Favorite Food, Restaurants, Bars, and more …. or simply, "The Choice".

You can participate and answer the survey here:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TheChoice2017

We conducted an intense first round of voting among ourselves, and our resulting Finalists have made us very pleased: we feel it's a very diverse and fair representation of all our favorites from all over the Philippines. The categories are very broad, as they should be in a democratic vote.

However, we'd like to emphasize that this is NOT a "Best of..." list. Taste, after all, is subjective. This is a vote for YOUR FAVORITES. These are not the Oscars of our ever-growing foodie community.|

Instead, we'd like "The Choice" to be the Golden Globes:  a bit more irreverent, surely less formal, and yes, it ought to be greatly biased. After all, YOU will be voting for your favorites, this is YOUR CHOICE!!!

-----

 The Choice 2017 Voting is open for 3 weeks starting on July 3, Monday and ends on July 23, 2017, Sunday.
The Choice Restaurant Awards will be on August 5, Saturday at the SMX Convention Center at the MoA during the World Food Expo (WOFEX) 2017!

-----

The Survey Parameters:

1. For the Favorite New Restaurant category, our coverage period includes restaurants that opened between June 1, 2016 to May 31, 2017.
2. There are 60 questions in this survey and answering this survey should take only around 10-15 minutes. It is best to give a definitive answer on each question and feel free to skip if you can't decide.
3. All answers are treated confidential and final once you click on the submit button. 
One survey response for one person only.
4. Please give us your name and email address for our random validation of the survey responses.
5. We've added your Favorite Hotel categories as part of this year's The Choice 2017 survey!


The KTG are:

The KTG is a group of friends who all just happen to be some of the top food bloggers in the Philippines; every one of their individual blogs ranks among the highest ranking and most influential online publications dedicated to food, entertainment, and travel.

The KTG is composed of some of the more senior food bloggers in the country, including Richie Zamora of "The Pickiest Eater in the World', and Jill Tan of 'The Food Scout”. 


Representing the younger generation are "Food in the Bag", "The Hungry Kat", and "Nines vs. Food". And from the world of showbiz, Mr. Chuckie Dreyfus, a foodie who's also a respected tech blogger.


The KTG's objectives are not limited to discovering the best restaurants, however. While it's affectionately called the "Kain Tulog Gang", it's officially participated in relief efforts in Tacloban and Iloilo after Yolanda; and in Metro Manila, this "Kapatiran sa Tulong at Ginhawa" is on a constant mission to contribute in providing joy and comfort to the less fortunate.

RINA'S MOTHER’S DAY SURPRISE FROM ALASKA MILK!


          Although we’ve never had much problems getting to drink her milk (Thankfully she’s not as “Picky” as her father), that never stopped Rina from finding simple ways to make “Milk Time” fun for Rain. Rina’s philosophy is to always associate Rain’s routine of drinking a glass of milk with happy moments, so it becomes something that Rain always looks forward to. Whether it be through “Story TIme” or a small “Surprise”, Rina and Rain’s milk time has become a great bonding Mother and Daughter session. 

        And thankfully, the delicious taste of Alaska Powdered Milk made it a whole lot easier for us, because the sight of her big glass of milk never fails to make her eyes light up!

         Last Mother’s Day, our friends at Alaska sent over a surprise for Rina and Rain which fit perfectly for their daily Milk Time Activities!
