Thesugarbug Gets Earth-Friendly

Friday, October 31, 2008

Yep! It's more than just food, it's all about Earth-awareness.

Here's a tip I learned from a magazine:

Whenever we buy a small item, usually from a convenience store, say candy or bottled drink, the attendant usually puts the purchase in a small plastic bag, which actually, we don't use anyway and end up throwing. The thing I do is, I politely refuse it to be placed inside a plastic bag and just ask for a receipt. I do ask for a plastic bag when I have a lot of items to purchase.

Also, supermarkets promote canvas bags and provide incentives if the customer purchases a canvas bag and uses it to carry their groceries, like Rustan's and SM, where they multiply your frequent shopper's points. The bag costs around Php100.00 and it's pretty strong. It could even hold canned goods.

Of course, there's the usual ways of saving energy like turning the water/lights off after use and recycling trash. Also, whenever you go out to have your cup of coffee, try bringing your spillproof mug (you get to save money too!)

Any environment-friendly tips to share?

Bona Freshly Baked

Monday, October 20, 2008

One thing I love about BoNa is how their pastries are not premixed but always freshly baked... just like how we love them...

take a look at this chocolate chip oatmeal cookie. I passed by BoNa on my way to a client and I saw that they were baking cookies so i got one. The thing is, it was freshly baked and one cookie is not enough. I think I need a couple more.

Oh, and these are nonfat cookies.

Who says we cant have our cake and eat it too?

A Beach Vacay Idea

Thursday, October 16, 2008

Whenever you're out going for a vacation, if you want hassle-less meals, head over to Monterey or SM for pre-marinated meats that you can buy per kilo at an affordable price. Then, all you have to do is fry/grill/ 'em up. No need to bring additional bottles of sauces that could spill!

I was chatting with my friend and he was asking me what else would we bring for food for our beach shoot/trip. My mind immediately shot up suggesting "SPAGHETTI!" but when i found out how hassle it could be, remembered during one out-of-town trip where we were served pre-marinated barbecue and it turned out good. So i suggested to go to Monterey and buy pre-mixed meats that we can just cook in our destination

That's barbecue and korean beef plus rice. It was served with a siding of tomatoes, onions, and salted egg (not shown). It took I think less than 30 minutes to prepare or prolly a little more. But still, it does give you more time to have fun in the sun 'no? :)

Looking at this announcements makes me wanna go to MoA today, where my favorite KK store is, or High Street :D

Yummm! Okay! I know I have 2 shoots lined up this month. To the photographers, as I know you hate the liquefy tool, I promise not to balloon and bloat up much. :P
