The word bacon alone deserves an all-caps title on this post. Also while writing this I started from bottom-up. Crazy I know! Hahaha! I was invited to a bacon cook-off to well, get to know that bacon is more than just something to eat on its own. Sure, I like my bacon crispy with eggs, or on top of my pasta, or rolled into crunchy asparagus (ay that’s a lot na pala!) but there’s more to love in bacon than breakfast! Purefoods collaborated with several restaurants in the metro to serve special bacon dishes in their menu, thus Baconfest Manila was born! Woohoo!

I got to join the Team Bae! <3 We were assigned to cook a dessert made out of bacon. Chocolate dipped maple flavored bacon anyone? Honestly. the maple flavored bacon from purefoods has been a favorite of mine since way back. It smells like pancakes upon frying, and the sweetness really compliments the salt and fat of the bacon. Reading this, don’t you agree na I really like bacon ever since the world began?

The cook-off was also a cooking contest and guess what? We didn’t win anything! LOL but I’m so glad I got to experience cooking with the ladies of Team Bae. I wanted to eat the apple something pork bacon something of Earth’s team and I was expecting it to be served after the contest, but we didn’t get to eat any of our team’s or the other team’s dishes which disappointed me a bit.

A photo with Joyce Pring made my day tho. She’s so cool and hot at the same time to take a back-shot of our tattoos together *kilig*

Despite not being able to taste our cook-off dishes, they served us food here at Torch Greenbelt. Everything baconized. My favorite is this simple but oh so yummy carbonara topped with poach egg and bacon. It was also the only meal I can eat because I just got braces. So hard to chew ha!

Actually if you visit 5 of their partner restaurants and eat at least 1 bacon dish per trip, you get the chance to win Apple products like an iphone 6, and an ipad! Here’s how to join their cool contest


  1. Snap a photo of your baconized dish
  2. Caption it with 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, 5/5
  3. Tag @baconfestmnl with their official hashtags #BaconFestMNL and #BiteTheLove
It’s that simple!
John and I are planning to partake in the contest as well so I guess we’ll be your competition? 😛

    me too, i bought from ageless beauty. Its my first time using this, so I don't know the smell of the old one, but I do smell something from the new packaging. Is that normal? Does it have any other smell? Or no smell at all?

  • Reply Sheryl Jane Omal-Taguiam Selda May 4, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    OMG'! this bothers me alot.. I thought its the ALA does cause purging effect.. what did you take, ishigaki premium plus blend or the l-glutathione?

  • Reply Sheryl Jane Omal-Taguiam Selda May 4, 2015 at 11:37 pm

    . . OMG! your post really made me worry.. but may I ask what ishi product did you use was it the premium blend? (I do really hope it's not) anyway accdg. to other reliable reviews it's the ALA ingredient of the oral glutathione usually causes the purging effect. I was just thinking na baka yung ishi na binili mo is with ALA.. did you check the content of your ishi? let me know agad huh? kc if its prem blend as well.. i'll d finitely stop it by now coz I do have acne prone skin..

    Sis bakit iba ang distributor dito ang ang nakapost sa cheska store? There it says

    Ingredients manufactured & imported from Japan.
    Distributed by: Sci Chem Lab 5927 Geiger Court, Carisbad, CA, USA..

    While the one from ageless potions states that this is manufactured by hsce under japan & usp standards, Campbell, CA, 95008 USA

    Same parin ba to ibang dstributor lng?
