Thank you for my personalized scent from Korea  @granhand_official as explained by beautiful daughter Jana @janago

“We had to walk from the subway station to this village called Bokchon Hanok to find it and it’s  in this little alley.  And it’s special because it is made in Korea and they have different scents.  This is their bestseller and we personalized it for you.”

Love scents !  #Granhand #h2hbespoke #h2hheartgifts#h2hscents #h2hpasalubongsGranhand (2) Granhand (1)

My first ever collection, Style Cat Resort: Take Me To Purradise is inspired and named after by MUST-SEE destinations: Aruba (southern Caribbean), Calaguas (in the Philippines), Santhiya (in Thailand), Port Douglas (in Australia) and Uluwatu (in Bali.) I love the idea of using locally sourced material (such as traffia, abaca, banukan) and seeing products made by our incredibly talented artisans. I wish everyone who sees the Style Cat bags already imagine their next adventure, their next travel goal – after all, its meow or never.”Style Cat (3) Style Cat (8) Style Cat (11) Style Cat (2) Style Cat (10) Style Cat (7) Style Cat (9) Style Cat (6) Style Cat (5) Style Cat (4) Style Cat (1)

How blessed we are to have our sense of sight!  Thank you to @eyesocietyph  for your advocacy and most especially for providing a solution to help prevent blindness.

Not only did we enjoy the taste, smell, feel and hear about our food, we realized how lucky we are that we can see what we are eating and how important it is to have our sight. It was nice to see the food after because they were works of art so lovingly prepared by Chef Gaita and her team from @ciboph Thank you Gaita for giving so much of yourself always especially for good causes to help our society.   #eyesocietyph

Souv

By | Foodie | No Comments

Chef Robby Goco of Cyma launches Souv – a new concept restaurant that’s more fun, fresh, modern and progressive Greek.

“Cyma’s success, the most popular Greek resto in the country, is the foundation of Souv! Chef Robby Goco integrated the top 12 favorite dishes of Cyma here in Souv! because it still has the DNA of Cyma but like we said earlier, we’re progressing. Souv! is adhered to Greek philosophy cooking of -good fat, healthy grains, lots of fiber , low sugar and carbs”Souv (8)Souv (9) Souv (16)  Authentic Greek handpainted plates brought in by Chef himself.  He saw a guy painting them and he brought them back home and now they are here on the wall of Souv :-)Souv (10)  Souv comes from the word souvlaki/souvla/souva – a Greek dish referring to pieces of meat on a skewer. Staying true to its concept of being more fun and added with a little word play, we came up with “Souv!” Souv! is a full-sevice modern Greek concept focusing on a spit fired meat. Rotisserie is a style of roasting where meat is skewered on a long solid rod while being cooked over fire, using large joints of meat or entire animals such as lamb, pigs, and chickens.Souv (11)  So nice to meet Chef Robby Goco @bleurobster and his business partner since the beginning (12 years ago), Kristine Meehan. Now with 6 Cymas ( “My Rock”) 3 Green Pastures ( spearheaded the organic movement in the country ) Yumi ( Japanese ) and Munchtown ( hotdog ) This is my first time to meet him and I’m impressed by his way of thinking and how he chose to do Greek and how he owned it in the country. I learned a lot from him about ingredients, about business, about many many things. I love listening to his rational behind things, his stories and dishes. Today I also found out why I like Greek food – it’s because of LOOPS. Come visit Souv @souvbycyma and I’m sure you will love it. #SouvByCyma #EverydayGreek#H2HChefsSouv (27)Souv (15)  For appetizers, you can start with a range of mezzes from dips, to spinach and clam fondue. Souv (2) Greek NachosSouv (13)Sticky Chicken wings

The food is cooked of 6 hours.  It is slow food at its finest but served super fast”  #SouvByCyma#EverydayGreek

 There is an off menu dessert – Rice pudding, salted caramel and pistachio  #SouvbyCyma #EverydayGreek#H2HFroyo #GreekYogurtSouv (29)

Souv uses the 5 staple ingredients of Greek cooking, which we call SPOOL, to bring out the natural flavors of each ingredient-salt, pepper, olive oil, oregano, lemon.

Souv

At Souv! you are assured that all our dishes are made from scratch in house, all fresh daily. The idea is perfect simplicity, to preserve each ingredient’s distinct flavor and nutritional value.

Our dishes are perfectly paired with modern day Greek libations that are creative and everyday  wines that are very affordable. We also cater to health conscious because we have organic and vegan-friendly red wines.

Come visit Souv! and have your #everdaygreek fix!

Gamla Stan

By | Regent Seven Seas Explorer | No Comments

It was the  birthday of Princess Victoria so many streets were closed that day especially near the Palace. This is by the Royal Palace where people were waiting for her to pass by  #stockholm #Sweden #gamlastan#royalpalacestockholm #H2HStockholm#h2hssexplorer2017
Gamla Stan (21)The area of the Royal Palace is the Old Town, Gamla Stan.

I like going to old towns – the feel and the ambience – and of course they have to be touristy :-)  But its where you will find local crafts and also be able to find out a bit of the country by looking at the souvenirs they sell :-)  Gamla Stan (1) Gamla Stan (2) Gamla Stan (3) Gamla Stan (16) Gamla Stan (17) Gamla Stan (51) Gamla Stan (55) Gamla Stan (56) Gamla Stan (57) Gamla Stan (8) Gamla Stan (10) Gamla Stan (9) Gamla Stan (31) Gamla Stan (32) Gamla Stan (58) Gamla Stan (27) Gamla Stan (19) Gamla Stan (4) Gamla Stan (18) Gamla Stan (15) Gamla Stan (6) Gamla Stan (52) Gamla Stan (53) Gamla Stan (38) Gamla Stan (41) Gamla Stan (40) Gamla Stan (54) Gamla Stan (49) Gamla Stan (50) Gamla Stan (48) Gamla Stan (24) Gamla Stan (5) Gamla Stan (33) Gamla Stan (37) Gamla Stan (36) Gamla Stan (47) Gamla Stan (45) Gamla Stan (46) Gamla Stan (42)Gamla Stan (11) Gamla Stan (43) Gamla Stan (44) Gamla Stan (14) Gamla Stan (13) Gamla Stan (12) Gamla Stan (7) Gamla Stan (34) Gamla Stan (39) Gamla Stan (29) Gamla Stan (30) Gamla Stan (35) Gamla Stan (20) Gamla Stan (22) Gamla Stan (23) Gamla Stan (26) Gamla Stan (25) Gamla Stan (28)
