Making desserts on TV



Being interviewed on TV happened to me numerous times, primarily about digital media and social media stuff. But this is my first time to do a live demo making desserts on TV.

It feels a bit scary. Bringing my brand on live television and making it myself. I made a local version of an Asian dessert called Cendol. Its a green bean based dessert which resembles halo-halo in our country. Its mostly composed of sweetened fruits in season on a bowl of crushed ice with milk and a little sugar.

The interviewer was a friend, broadcaster Alfie Tulagan of GMA TV 10, and his ever- talented cameraman.

The ingredients were :

1. Cendol
2. Sweet Potato
3. Langka/ Jackfruit
4. Red beans
5. Crushed ice
6. Fresh milk
7. Sugar (optional)

Will upload the video on my Youtube Channel.

Dragon fruit or Pitaya prefers free draining soil with sandy to clay loam types or sandy soils like the land that can be found in Balungao.


Dragon fruit farming is widely popular in Central and South America. But thru research, it has reached different countries in Asia including the Philippines.

Espe is a nurse in profession but when he learned about the different benefits of dragon fruit, he started growing a few in their ancestral land in Balungao. Her s…

RealStew: The Next Big Thing on the Web

Admittedly, I am a netizen who spends most of my waking hours on the Internet. Data gathering, research, blogging, doing internet marketing and social media strategy with my clients.

As a journalist, its normal to scour the web for valuable information that is shareable to the community. As an advocate of continuous learning, its also important to look for thought-leaders, learn about what is new and what is most likely to trend.

For entrepreneurs like me, I am always on the lookout for business opportunities that the web can offer so I can take advantage of it, learn what others are doing and what the world is going crazy about. Week by week, regularly.

Wearing many hats, I frequent various websites. Most of them social networking sites, per industry site, special interest sites, niche blogs, news sites and finance websites.

There is really no single website that makes me stay or spend my entire web surfing on. All piecemeal.

So when RealStew was introduced to me, which is more of an…
