Review: Dong Juan

Dong Juan and I are in a relationship. Whenever I am alone and want to dine, I come to this place. I also share this love with my friends. I love Dong Juan because of the fact that I don't have to go inside the mall just to eat. It's accessible. The service has greatly improved from the first time I visited too. I remember a few years ago when Dong Juan was just a tiny spot at Guadalupe. Now, you see it everywhere you go. It has branches sprouting like fastfood. It has become ubiquitous and I meant that in a good way. :)

What medicinal herbs to take when sick?

Before there was medicine as we know it, there was food. Medicinal herbs are God's gift to mankind. Having been born in a family who is a firm believer of tradition and has great respect to our ancenstors, we were brought up drinking tea of root crops and leaves whenever we are sick - fever, chickenpox, measles, dengue, stomach ache, hyperacidity, headache among others. Trust me, the tea tasted and smelled horrible. I used to drink them pinching my nose so I can't smell and then drown the after taste with lots and lots of water.

The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell

I am always in the hunt for a good book. This book has been referenced to in one of the seminars I attended. Since then, I've always been curious about it. I could not find an epub copy and so I bought the actual hard-printed book. I know it sounds so "jurassic"! I always loved the smell of ink on paper.  It makes me feel geeky and happy holding one. ^_^
