DIDIscoveries: Cocina Peruvia at Vertis North

It's been a long long while since I have been in a mall.  Traffic has to be one of the reasons of us staying home and it's really more comfy at home.  But for special occasions, well - I'd like it to be more special - thus, the decision to eat out.   Thinking of where to eat is actually a task for me because I'm a creature of habit.  I like to eat at restaurants where I am sure that the food quality and service is good.  I finally decided to go to Ayala Vertis North since it's a nearby mall and we've never been there yet.  The mall is fairly new and still has a lot of empty spaces, but it does have a good number of restaurants - some I am familiar with and some are new.   Cocina Peruvia caught our attention as it was new to us.  We've honestly never heard of it before, but you know what - take the plunge!  The menu looked interesting anyways.  Our server was very helpful, patient and gracious - he helped us decide what to get.  I didn't have a

NeilMed Sinugator for Sinus & Sipon

A few years ago, I discovered the NetiPot because of my severe allergies.  It has helped me since then.  I would use it when I'm not lazy, it takes a bit of time and effort since I need to put in distilled water + saline granules.  Then tilt my head accordingly to pour the solution from one nostril.  It was exciting for the first few weeks.  Then when I ran out of the saline granules pack, well - I stopped and forgot about it for a while, a really long while. This year, when my in laws came back from Singapore - they sent this to us. It's a different kind of a netipot. When I received this (it was in a box) I took it out of the box and assembled it.  It came in disassembled - there's an instruction book for you to know which part goes where and etc.  Also, it has three pieces of Double A batteries that came with it.  I had to figure out where to put the batteries and when I did - the image above is what it looks like. Next, I read the instructions on how to us
