What’s a home without a Princess?

By | What's New at Rustan's | One Comment

The Philippine appliance market may as well do a little curtsey as it welcomes Princess, a Dutch brand which has captured a large chunk of Europe’s appliance retail markets with its wide array of unique, innovative, stylish, and affordably priced products. Established in the

Netherlands in 1994, the brand is currently distributed in 75 countries and is now the world’s largest supplier of small domestic appliances in chrome and stainless steel. With the tagline “What’s a home without a Princess?”,  the brand aims to infuse Filipino homes with a touch of royalty, providing families and individual home owners with household, kitchen and personal care gadgets that are not only manufactured and designed with the highest European quality standards but also serve their various needs and pander to their sense of style and aesthetic flair.              

Princess’ initial offering to the Philippines comprises four distinct product lines, namely Classic, Royal, Silver, and Red. Altogether, these four lines present the widest assortment of small appliances ever carried under one brand in the local market. The product lines, which feature different materials and finish, have their own unique appeal, price points, and product mix to cater to various household needs, personal preferences, and income brackets. Its consumer-friendly prices, with items as affordable as a little over Php 1,000 a piece will give competing brands in the local market a run for their money considering the Princess has become synonymous with standards fit for royalty and has proudly held its ground for more than ten years against the best established European brands in the small appliance category.            

Princess is distributed by Rustan Marketing Corporation and exclusively available in leading SM Homeworld outlets nationwide. For Inquiries, please call 890-9703 local 206/219.

Dinner by Michele

By | Foodie | 3 Comments

Thank you Michele for inviting us to a superb dinner. Finally we got to taste your cooking!!! And what a surprise to see Margaret in the kitchen with you as your sous chef.

It was a lovely dinner with great company.  I just had to include the photo of Michele with Diether, which she said was dedicated to her cousin,Guia!  I am so amused at how down to earth and “game” Michele is.  That’s what makes her unique and special and why I enjoy being her friend.
Michele’s culinary experience is from The Institute of Culinary Education, New York City – Culinary Management Diploma Program and the Career Culinary Arts Program where she graduated in 2003 with highest honors.   She used to cater with Chef Ed Quimson while she was working for her grandfather at the AY foundation. After a year and a half of catering, she branched out into a different segment of the culinary world in response to the demands of a niche market that prefers small, personalized and completely hands-on cooking classes for both adults and children. She creates lesson plans for the basic to the more advanced recipes and techniques including the principles of food safety and sanitation.

In addition to Michele’s culinary talents, she is very particular about food safety and sanitation.  Aside from teaching it, she really practices it and always stresses this to her people.  Her kitchen is very, very clean and follows all the standards of food safety and sanitation.  So be assured that all the food that she makes is prepared with high quality standards.  I am so happy to announce that Michele will finally accept catering services.  She is opening her house for private meals in her own dining room or patio. So do give her a call and start trying her cooking. 
To Michele, our dear friend, we are so proud of you!  Continue to enjoy doing what you love to do and make people happy by serving great food!!

Nihonbashitei Teppanyaki

By | Foodie | 3 Comments

Our friend Mykie highly recommended this place and said that it was like Colza ( Japanese restaurant in Japan ). There are around 6 private teppanyaki rooms good for around 6 to 7 people per room.  He told us to order the Japanese Wagyu Rib Eye Steak and to look for Chef Enan to cook for us.  We followed exactly what he told us and it was perfect.  We thought it was a great value for a meal with Wagyu beef – JAPANESE wagyu!  It came with soup, sashimi, salad, tempura, fried rice and vegetables.  The wagyu was really good!!! The kids enjoyed the exhibition by Chef Enan.  You can also order from their japanese restaurant menu ( located below the teppanyaki restaurant ) which is reasonably priced.
