Recharge with Kopiko 78

IMG_9562

Just want to know everyone and make everyone aware that I’m one of the so-called coffee addicts, I’m actually immune from other coffee, the only coffee that works for me are the strongest ones but i’ll make an exception for Kopiko 78! It just gives me that hit! The hit you’ll never forget haha!
People told me that this one’s very helpful when I need to stay up so I just literally tried it and hey, it worked! Now, I drink it every time I need to pull an all nighter/ cramming session!
It is made from the finest quality coffee. Brewed and extracted at 78 degrees. The perfect temperature for bringing out flavour of the coffee.
Kopiko 78 gives you the potent boost of caffeine to kickstart your day that’s why I always give a shot of kopiko every morning to kickstart my day and one more in the afternoon to recharge my midday, getting you up to the task of tackling any mental or physical challenges that I need to overcome.

Something Wrong that is right.

Despite of everyone eating clean and getting their beach body ready here I am blogging some good food that will make you salivate! hahaha! So, few weeks ago me and my friends suddenly craved for some ramen and I’ve been into the state of looking for the best ramen the metro. I’ve been seeing so much instagram/facebook and twitter posts about this Ramen place located in Burgos circle called Wrong ramen, of course at first I really don’t get why it is called that way and it made me curious that it made me want to try it out so me and my friends went to wrong ramen few weeks ago to satisfy our ramen cravings. I enjoyed my stay there because not only the food’s good but I was with my closest blogger friends that night! a night full of laughter and catching up! Anyway, would like to share with you guys the dishes that we tried during our ramen fix!

I didn’t know that japanese cuisine offers Crispy Pata?!?! oh wait, it’s called wrong ramen for a reason right? Well, in wrong ramen you don’t have to follow the traditional japanese culture of eating ramen or their cuisine, everything in wrong ramen has a very wrong but right twist. It’s hard to explain unless you try it yourself! Tried this lettuce wrap with crispy pata! It’s so deadly but can’t help it because it’s so good! 

image

I had the Tonkotsu-Light because I was in a moderate diet (lol! getting ready for summer…) this has lesser pork fat and the lighter version of their heaviest ramen  called tonkotsu-rich. I love how it tastes like authentic ramen that I tried when I was in tokyo few years ago! This bowl made me reminisce my tokyo trip. huhu I miss japan so much. The flavors from the spices matches how rich and al dente the noodle is. You guys should try this! It’s a must! 

image

Another must-try from their menu is this red cow tomagoyaki! the fusion of corned beef and sweet egg is so perfect! I think I ate so much of this when I went there! It’s sweet and rich with that meaty flavor!

image

To end our meal we tried their super wrong dessert called the poop of the gods. hahaha! I know right, it sounds so wrong but the taste is so right! This one tastes like chocolate truffles with olive oil and rock salt. After eating in wrong ramen they will give you this complimentary shot that tasstes like yakult, they said it ‘ll cleanse your taste palette and will wash away the fishy flavor from your mouth! Too bad I didn’t get a picture of the “yakult” shot. Anyway, I enjoyed every bite and sip from the ramen soup. I highly recommend this place and another thing to look forward to is their interiors! Everything’s so hip and youthful! hahaha! Perfect for barkadas out there! Will definitely go back!

Optimo Coffee

If you’re a really close friend of mine, you guys know that I’m a coffee addict and instant coffee is the least of my choices because I prefer a freshly brewed one with a little bit of milk and brown sugar but my life changed after discovering this instant (yes, INSTANT) coffee in the market called Optimo Coffee!

Optimo offers a premium and healthy coffee mix sweetened with Suchero instead of the usual chemical or artificial sweetener we often come across. The Suchero coco sap in Optimo is a branded coconut sap sweetener that is drier than most coconut sap sweeteners, allowing it to have a longer shelf life. It is also a 100% natural and organic coconut sap sweetener that creates the right mix with three herbal extracts, namely Gingko Biloba, Grape Seed, and Green Tea. 

The strong brew of Optimo is enhanced by the caramel taste of the Suchero coco sap. As sweet as Optimo is with this healthy sweetener, Optimo doesn’t lead you to a sugar crash. The sweetener gives you the flavor you want, but with its “slow burning” properties, the energy released by the coconut sap is distributed over a longer amount of time, allowing your blood sugar to remain stable. Thus, Optimo is an ideal coffee drink for even the healthiest of health buffs.

 Additional health benefits in the Optimo 3+3 Coffee Mix can be found in the three herbs present in the mix; the first being the Gingko Biloba herb known as the “mind and memory extract” which, as studies have showed, improves mental performance and mood. The second herb is the Green Tea herb which is recognized for its anti-oxidant properties as well as the increase of one’s metabolism. Lastly, there’s the Grape Seed herb known as the “beauty” extract with concentrated amounts of Vitamin E which repairs collagen and protects your skin from sun damage.

This instant coffee is perfect for my healthy and fast paced lifestyle and since I want to share this with you guys! I’ll be holding a Blog contest! Just like and follow Optimo’s Facebook , Twitter, and IG; Use #TheRightMix; on Twitter, FB, or IG tag me and tell me what #TheRightMix of accessories is for you! Winner will be announced on october 26 by Optimo coffee. The winner will win 1000 GC from forever 21 + 8 boxes of optimo coffee!
