#WeddingVlog01 We Found Our Caterer! | INGRID NIETO Vlogs

The caterer is one of the crucial suppliers wedding couples have to book right away. I’m grateful that I get to work with different caterers for my wedding and event projects but it’s different when you’re choosing one for your big day!

Budget of course, is a huge factor + the number of guests, the menu and packages being offered. When we booked our caterer, it seemed like everything just fell into place. Dave and I aren’t that fussy naman but we of course want to make sure that our families are fed well. There were special discounts that were offered on the day of our initial food tasting and we were also given freebies.

We weren’t really considering a separate wedding cake, so we’re happy that even the cake was included in our package!

TRYING OUT ERICH GONZALES’ SLIMMING SECRET

IMG_8572

Ever had those times when you just want to eat all the food in the world without having to worry about gaining weight and growing those love handles? Even if I’m huge on vegetable smoothies and salads,ย  I have to admit that I get tempted when I’m faced with sweet desserts, pasta, crispy pata, bagnet and tender ribs. I have to battle with that inner voice that says “Come on. Just once.” But I know full well that that “Just once.” can lead to me using that as an excuse every single time I’m at a buffet spread. It takes discipline, doesn’t it?

Training Our Stations in CDO and Cebu

I’ve been in radio for fourteen years. I started out as a student jock, became a traffic reporter (after my segment producing stint), worked at Mellow947 for a decade, had a short stint on News FM and now, handling executive producer and announcing duties for NOW XD. Radio may seem like a fun and easy job (I do enjoy it) but there’s a lot of things that go on off-air that contribute to the mounting of a radio program. With social media and video being a huge factor now, it’s no longer just the audio output we consider. In this short VLOG, I’ll take you through our week-long radio training held at Cebu.

Greens, Juice Bar and Meatless Options at Hillside Cafe

Adding this to my list of happy, vegan-friendly restaurants that I must frequent! Since I went on a lifestyle and diet adjustment in August of this year, one of the challenges (aside from strictly preparing my own meals) was finding easily-accessible restaurants that served plant-based, organic food.

Go Salads is good but my tastebuds started looking for something different, specially now that I’ve tried almost everything on their menu. To be fair to Go Salads though, I’d say it’s my new “fast food” now because when you walk into their store or stall, they get to prepare your salad, sandwich or green smoothie in less than 15 minutes.

Back to Hillside Cafe and Juice Bar.

The only branch they have presently is at Mo. Ignacia, which is surprisingly just near the seminary I go to. I like that the place isn’t so huge. It’s very quaint, perfect for meetings, dates and catch-up sessions. Their salad servings are huge, good enough for two, I would say but if you’re a vegetable monster like me, I’m sure you can consume the entire plate by yourself. I ordered the Superfood Salad (which has kale, mixed greens, quinoa, beets, carrots, malunggay flakes and a vinaigrette dressing) and the Hillside Greens Smoothie (which has spinach, moringa, mango, banana, chia seeds, coconut meat and coconut water). Sophie and Kath ordered the Aglio Olio Pasta and the Tropical Smoothie. Watch the video below and do visit Hillside Cafe! ๐Ÿ˜€
