Take it to the Blindfold Test: Kenny Rogers Roasters Garlic Butter Roast

We were all in blindfolds at the event wondering what the lady with the sultry voice was instructing us to do.  Then it has come to the big reveal, it’s AROMATIC and I can smell the infused garlic – It’s THE GARLIC BUTTER ROAST!

Well I kinda had the idea since the launch the commercial of SOSBOLZ, Solenn Heausaff and Nico Bolzico – The good-looking and hilarious couple. These two are couple goals not only that they are LIFE GOALS and FITSPIRATIONS but it’s the kind of relationship they have (ofcourse they love each other) but who doesn’t watch Nico’s wifezilla instagram stories and Solenn is just cool about it. Solenn laughs at Nico all the time to the point where tears are coming out – that’s the kind of genuine relationship every girl looks for in a guy.

Going back to the Garlic Butter Roast, during the event it was served COLD maybe because it was prepped prior to the event but I personally feel if it was served like just got out of the oven it would taste great. Plus I love the potatoes served at the around the chicken. Who doesn’t love chicken and potatoes. The GBR is a healthy option because its ROASTED not fried with the homestyle goodness of garlic and butter. TASTE SO GOOD! 

It is already available in the menu! I have friends who ordered the GBR and its one of their faves on the KRR menu. So the latest offering WHOLE P550, HALF P295, QUARTER P160. For combo meal SOLO B BUTTER ROAST comes with a platter contains rice, mac n cheese, muffin, sauce, veggies and ofcourse the chicken (quarter) P250.00. The Garlic Butter Roast GROUP MEAL comes with the WHOLE CHICKEN, 4 side dishes, bowl of rice, coke and 4 muffins P820.00.

So head over the nearest Kenny Rogers Roasters near you and order or you can order online http://www.kennys.com.ph

Cycle and Rehydrate with G-Active Electrolyte Water Drink

GATORADE launches its water based electrolyte drink in LIME LEMON (personal fave), ORANGE AND BERRY! and introducing their #GACTIVEFITCREW spearheaded by fitspirations like Isabelle Daza, with his unbeliveable weight loss, Raymond Gutierrez and the dance trooper,  Yassi Pressman.

Followed by The G-Active Fit Crew Nikki Torres founder of NT Sweat, TV and Movie Actress Aubrey Miles, Philippines’ Next Top Model host Maggie Wilson, Flyweight PH boxing instructor Vince Velasco, Arnold’s Army founder Arnold Aninion, G-Active Brand ambassadors Belle Daza and Raymond Gutierrez, Ida Paras of Ride Revolution, and DJ Patty Tiu, Hosted by Joyce Pring

 Daza, is also co-owner and instructor at the spinning class studio Ride Revolution, is definitely not new to the fitness scene. For this bubbly beauty, fitness is a passion she pursues with gusto. She shared, “I have personally seen how committing to physical fitness can transform lives for the better and I want more people to experience that amazing feeling. I am very excited to team up with G Active to get more people moving and pursuing a more physically active lifestyle.”

Gutierrez has recently made headlines for his inspiring weight loss and journey towards a healthier body. “This whole process really changed my life and aside from enjoying the physical benefits, what really makes me happy is seeing how my journey has inspired other people,” he said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to motivate and hopefully, educate, more people though G Active.” and he said “0 sugar!, sign me up”

 Meanwhile, Pressman, like most actresses her age, makes sure to commit to regular exercise and healthy food choices to stay in top shape. The Filipina-British actress’ first love—dancing—also helps keep her fit despite her hectic schedule. “There’s no shortcut to a healthy body. You really have to eat right and exercise,” she said. “What I really like about G Active is that it fits right into my active lifestyle. I’m definitely proud to be part of this amazing team.”

Admit it, we all follow them on Instagram, they all belong to an IT CREW, check their IG stories and wished we had the same determination and discipline. Something that should definitely look up to.

The event gave me the opportunity to meet Isabelle Daza, I do check her instagram stories because she is very insightful and informative. My mom really likes her too! plus she’s morena and pinay. Upon checking her Instagram there was one entry she was trying to talk with bunch of girls but apparently they just wanted a picture. I approached her and introduced myself and I kinda blanked after that. She’s so kind, I even asked her a short shoutout on my IG story – Thanks Belle! Doing cycling behind you made me feel like a POTATO and the other fit girls around me. Thank God I do RPM and Cycling in the gym (Hindi magpapahuli si teddy bear haha). I love RPM/CYCLING for years I’ve considered it a good workout not cardio but also upper body strength, core, speed and cardio. You can burn 600-800 calories. 

Anyways remembering  the good old nursing days, we would always recommend GATORADE as part of our health teaching for REHYDRATION because it contains electrolytes plus its affordable for patients especially in the public hospital. Back in the day the Colored energy drinks were more available, we mostly encouraged the light colored ones especially for dengue patients because it might be mistaken as blood in the stool( “feces”/”poop”). Generally Gatorade was highly endorsed Nurses. 

Now maybe student-nurses/ millenials can endorse the G ACTIVE with no hesitation because it can cater to all since its water base and had electrolytes and still affordable – at 7/11 it cost like P24. And ofcourse best to rehydrate after workout or any intense activities which you generally sweat since our body also sheds off electrolytes to replace the electrolytes loss. The taste is more subtle compared to the energy drinks, If you may ask. IT HAS 0 SUGAR, Per serving 200 ml (1 bottle is 500 ML) 2 kcal, 0 fat, 0 trans and saturated fat, 0 cholesterol, 0 carbs, 86 Sodium (Where water goes, sodium follows), 28 potassium, 12 Niacin (Vit B3) and 0.4 Vit B6. 

 

Yummy Bodies Ng Century: Gerald Anderson, Paulo Avelino and Mateo Guidicelli

Dear Manila why have you been so hot lately, but not as hot as Gerald, Anderson, Paulo Avelino and Mateo Guidicelli as the latest endorsers of Century Tuna!

These 3 guys are not only eye candies but we should look at them as advocates of a healthy & active lifestyle. (Just look at them). Their workouts seen on their instagram pages plus eating a well balanced diet with Century Tuna. Yes they are ripped girls because they stick religiously to their workouts and diet. Like Paulo Avelino he shared he is into Fish & veggies lately that;s why he is lean. 

 

Mateo is always on the go so having a lean tuna egg salad sandwich is easy to prepare and ofcourse a healthy option of wheat bread. For Gerald he sticks to his Filipino roots – RICE and Tuna Silog because breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Paulo is all about comfort food since it is easy to prepare like his tuna pancit canton, like he said “Straight from the can”. These guys personally whip their own century tuna dish at home and savor it.

 These 3 are humbled to be part as the latest campaign of Century Tuna – all of them represent and fit the brand well. Century tuna is easy to open, easy to prepare with any meal and healthy source to supply the energy they need in a day! 

I got to ask their workout playlist, I was definitely waiting for Paulo Avelino answer because he definitely has a good taste in music. He answered MARSHMELLO and FLUME. Btw he posted his playlist on his instagram story. Gerald was funny, he said whatever her feels then he blurted out and got my attention Frank Sinatra – I was like FOR REAL? Mateo, same whatever he feels like doing on that day that keeps the drive going. 

Meeting the 3, honestly I was so shookt and I couldn’t even eat at the event because of butterfiles in my tummy – because I am fangirling over Paulo Avelino (If you are reading this this right now, I am so thankful and so sorry I was so speechless – usually I chitchat to a celebrities before taking a photo, but since everyone was grabbing here and there! I just got my chat to get a vid and photo -3 same photos HAHA!. Kalma, Krish!  Bucketlist checked! When I got the invite  from Century Tuna, I didn’t really expect anything. Just to see Paulo near is just enough. Thank God! 

Gerald and Mateo were so funny and throwing at each others faces. These two are so hardcore with their triathlon training and how disciplined they are. Gerald, if you do read this – you are such a sweet guy (If you guys saw IG stories) and Mateo wished I interacted with you but you were all blockbusters at the event. (You guys have no idea how rowdy it was). Mine I guess was by luck. 

A lot of friends who saw my instagram story, messaged me and asked me when they saw me “WHO HAS THE .BETTER BODY?” Just because they stripped in front of me and prepped a century tuna dish topless- that never came into my mind guys SRSLY haha

SNEAKER BOX MANILA

img_2234

Sneaker Box Manila opens to the public and can be spotted at G/F  The Promenade Mall , Greenhills, San Juan (Below. the cinemas and YES, the newly opened extension). Been the talk of the town because they have shoes that are rare in the market, legit and imported abroad. Name it, they have major shoe brands like Adidas, Nike, Puma and New Balance.

img_2252

Well you can actually pre-order if you desire any shoe like Jordans. I noticed how pinoys are into collecting rare Jordans, sorry If I can’t educate you about the different styles of Jordans. I am more of “porma” and not really been a basketball fan. By just asking the friendly and accommodating staff, I guess they can provide and answer your Jordan inquiries. The prices of their Jordans range from P8k PLUS based on what I saw and remembered hopefully. But yeah, It’s worth the investment for the basketball fans out there.

On my area of interest , I am more of the sporty and style side like what I use in the gym and what screams athleisure – Adidas’ Stan Smith (white shoes fad) Nike, New Balance and Stella McCartney.

img_2248

I am a fan of the designer, Stella McCartney and I love the collection when she had a collaboration with Adidas. Actually, I didn’t know there was a line for Stella McCartney shoes. See, Sneakerboxmanila is updated with the trends.

img_2246img_2261

Yes, Adidas’ Stan Smith designs are available ranging from P7-8 k plus (depending on the model), The Rita Ora’s are not yet available but SOON. I actually have an eye for the gold or rose gold stan smith which I am waiting for. Speaking of Adidas, Sneakerboxmanila was featured on SPOT.PH and known for only having AdidasXStarwars and the glow in the dark ones.
