Lotus Biscoff is now available in local stores

Lotus Biscoff, which is known to jetsetters as the "in-flight treat" has arrived in Manila through Flying Ace Corporation. The cookie butter craze has dominated the market in this last couple of years and the only way consumers can buy it is through online sellers who also order from overseas. 

The newly acquired exclusively distributed brand by Flying Ace is going to make a lot of households happy now that Lotus Biscoff can be found in supermarkets nationwide.

When we attended the Grand Lotus Biscoff launch in Makati last week, it didn't occur to me the endless possibilities of Lotus Biscoff, whether it's the spread or the cookies themselves. Renowned French Chef Patrice of Society Lounge did a great job in coming up with such delicious array of Biscoff-infused (spread and biscuits) dishes. They all tasted so good, on a very first class level. We helped ourselves with more than a single helping. 

The concept of Biscoff (Biscuit + Coffee) isn't really the norm for us in the local scene. Yes, we have biscotti in coffee shops but there's really not so much to hype about. For some very gastronomic and palatable reason, the caramelized Biscoff goes well in perfect harmony with the taste of coffee. My wife and I agree that it's the ultimate coffee experience. We haven't enjoyed coffee as much as we do now. 

Biscoff Cinammon Rolls

Biscoff cookies have been Europe’s coffee break favorite since 1932.  It is baked in the small Belgium town of Lembeke, in the same location where its founders, the Boone brothers, opened their first bakery. Once the cookies were packed, the brothers would drive around town in their trademark red truck to deliver these prized treats. Eight decades later and the recipe still remains. It was in the 1950s when Lotus introduced pairing these cookies with coffee, which then became a routine in Belgian hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops. Soon, Lotus Biscoff became “Europe’s Favorite Cookie with Coffee.” 

Lotus Biscoff is exclusively distributed by Fly Ace Corporation

The Book of Revelation Made Clear Review

Lately, our household has had some interesting talks and questions about topic end times. This arose after watching a video about the blood moon and its possible connection with things prophesied in the book of Revelation and after the recent showing of the movie Left Behind.

Topics about prophecy and eschatology are difficult to discuss and teach about even as a man who has read and taught about it. Thanks to "The Book of Revelation Made Clear: A Down-to-Earth Guide to Understanding the Most Mysterious Book of the Bible" by Tim LaHaye and Timothy Parker, Revelation can now be understood easier.

Kris Aquino is Chowking's Newest Franchisee

We could not have expected an event less grand than when Chowking officially welcomed Kris Aquino as their newest franchisee last week at White Space in Makati City. Although we had to wait a while, with a handful of bouncers all over the place, we kind of expected it to be well secured since the main person is a member of the first family. The members of the media were given Chinese treats as we waited for Kris.

A favorite from amongst the treats was the Chinese Calligraphy. Above is the actual video I took while the Chinese Calligrapher was skillfully drawing my wife's name on a xuan paper (or Shuen paper or rice paper, is a kind of paper originating in ancient China used for writing and painting).
