What? There’s another milk tea shop in the Metro?! It surely is a milk tea shop but saying it’s just another is an understatement. Now, why did I say that? First let me inform you that I was approached by sir Rob, one of the owners of Milk + Honey Café to try their products. Since I wasn’t familiar with the brand, I did my research. And the more I do, the more I feel their passion and appreciate the local brand.
Who loves maja blanca? How about maja blanca with a twist? The other day my family and I got to try Ojet’s Lecheng Maja. No, I’m not cursing you. It’s really called Lecheng Maja. Ojet’s Lecheng Maja is made from pure coconut milk, fresh corn and milk. Besides this creamy white layer, there is also a layer of leche flan at the bottom.

Local bottled products are a blessing, especially these days when you can’t always get what you need in grocery stores. Thus, products sold by small businesses online became everyone’s go-to. The only problem is, there are numerous online shops to choose from. And that does not include the others that are yet to be discovered. I think this is where social media presence comes in. If you are a customer who purchased a product you like, it would be nice to spread the word. #SupportYourLokal
The other week I received a message from a place called Balai Tinapay. They wanted to send over their chocolate crinkles for me to try. After checking their profile and finding them on Google Maps, I realised three things. One, I pass by that area but never noticed them. Two, Balai Tinapay offers different types of bread, one of which is the famous ube cheese pandesal. And lastly, I was craving for their egg pie. So I ordered one whole egg pie which only costs Php 250. (I want to be crystal clear. I paid for that one, entiendes?)
