Chocolates and Creams: The Taste Of Dreams

I got the chance to meet the dream weavers Melody and Shela, who owns an upstart pastry business based here in Cagayan de Oro named Chocolates and Creams. Just a glimpse of their innovative and irresistible pastry designs would make you want to try them all! Here's one, for example... when I saw these eggs, I had to grab one and had to taste it and I must say, it was devilishly good: Melody and Shela both studied Food Technology in Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan and they told us that their chocolate-coated dreams are inspired from their personal travels. They wanted to apply their knowledge and produce cake creations that are one of a kind. And here they are making their dreams happen! They have these fruitylicious versions - the Blueberry Explosion and the Strawberry Divine. I personally loved their Strawberry Divine! The strawberry and cream melts in your mouth! ...and this enticing Chocolate Madness' pleasurable chocolate feel, oh my, it c

Mamsuy's Home Made Spanish Style Sardines

This Spanish Style Sardines mini business started early 2006. This used to be our family recipe only passed on from my grandfather. A lot of our friends and relatives would normally finish up all these when we serve them on family occasions. Later that year, we were having a hard time with cash and had to decide to come up with something to earn from. So we, my mom - Susan "Mamsuy" Lim, decided we go on and do the mini business. She would do the cooking and my sister Jeri Mae Lim and I would do the delivering and advertising. Friends and relatives would buy from us which really helped us a lot. The business stopped around 2008, when our cooker died and couldn't fund for a new one. It was just the other day that Mamsuy finally got the funding to buy a cooker, so we started it again. This is Home Made, Hot & Spicy, and of course, delicious. Grab one now and let us know what you think. :) Putting them in the microwaveable containers to cool down a bit before coveri

Young Entrepreneurs Vincent "Inting" L. Uy and Francis Merrill "Kirk" E. Escalante thought of having their own business for their future. Since both of them have the common hobby of eating, they thought of something affordable and convenient for all ages and thus PiK-Cup was born. They started with just delivering to Metrobank where Inting's older sister is working. But as time flew, they both lacked the inspiration to continue and Kirk had to go back to school. They eventually slowed down and stopped for about a year. This is when Inting's mommy Victoria L. Uy stepped in the picture to revive what was started, cause she saw the potential of the business. Pik-Cup now has a stall at Xavier University Canteen. You can also have the Pik-Cup's delivered if ordered by bulk. So far, Pik-Cup has only 4 options to choose from: Pork Asado, Sisig, Chicken Stew, and Corned Tuna. ALL FOR 35PHP PER CUP ONLY! For more information visit their stall at XU Cant
