Call For Entreprenuers: Easy Set-Up
With only five limited available slots, vendors have a higher chance of capturing their own market share and retaining their own segments when it comes to their concepts. The foodpark with the help of each vendor will share a sales tracking program to slowly analyze a week by week sales comparison for profit/loss decline, provide real time remedies and if needed, rebates. The goal is to create a community built business with a lively and vibrant market base.

It's is the perfect opportunity for aspiring or newbie entrepreneurs as a capital of only a little more than a minimum monthly wage is needed. Another advantage is that the headaches of business permits will not have to be dealt with as vendors can piggy-back under the Fat Butchik's business permits.

5 Things I Learned When I Started Working

6:00 PM
After high school, most of us go to college for a piece of paper that most big companies require before they hire. At least that's what our parents told us. Get a degree, find a job. 

Having to spend a year and a month in a huge multinational company, I learned that life is not as easy as you see it in the movies. There's no easy money, especially when you're just starting. Well, that's what most Millennials expect, am I right? Who doesn't want a high paying job the moment you step out of university? Sadly. not everyone gets that kind of luck (and connections). So let me share with you 5 things I learned when I started working.

Ayala Ave. Photo from Wikipedia.

1. It's okay to have close friends at work

As you might have heard from your other friends or family, having a close relationship with your colleagues is a don't. Well, I'm here to tell that you should--especially if it's one of the only things that's keeping you motivated to stay.

A post shared by Gerone Tolentino (@gerone_t) on

One of my managers used to say that there are four things you should consider before you resign. Money, workload, boss, and friends.

2. Being financially independent is almost impossible

Most of us think that being independent after college is like living the yuppie dream. Wrong. Being independent while earning a little above minimum wage is barely the "yuppie dream". Some have it easier with their parents paying for rent, etc. But there are hundreds out there who are barely making ends meet.

Throwback to the times when you don't have to think about bills and expenses. Sadly, we all have to move on and face this harsh reality we call life.

3. Quitting your job asap is probably not the best choice

I think we're all aware of what Millennials are in the work place: a bunch of job-hopping, entitled crybabies that can't even stay put in a firm for a year. Don't get me wrong, I've been in the same 'let's look for another job' boat because of reasons. I guess almost everyone talks about this once or twice (and by once or twice I mean maybe a couple of hundred times).

But who doesn't want the idea of a high paying job in a new environment where you can have a fresh start? While job-hopping may seem to be today's trend, gathering solid foundation and enough experience in a single company for a year or two doesn't sound like a bad idea at all. It's not rocket science, my friends. As my mother used to tell me, resign now and stay as an associate forever.

4. Traveling is a luxury

Although a piso-fare flight to Siargao sounds good and almost too good to be true, what comes after that is the real problem. You have to think of your accommodation, food, activities, and other expenses. Sure there are millions of articles out there that proves this otherwise, but let's face it. Traveling is, and will be, a luxury. It's just something not everyone can afford.

I'm not saying that you should stop traveling. Traveling is one of the best experiences I've made, and one of the most rewarding things I've done. But before clicking that 'book now' button, think carefully about how you'll budget, save, and spend your money. Check your liquidity. Can you pay for your credit card? Do you have enough money in your savings account? Or should you be even touching you savings? But if you have the money for that one week trip to Hong Kong, be my guest! Although, if you go broke, don't tell me I didn't warn you!

5. But these are all part of life that everyone will and had experienced

Sure you're barely saving money, commute to and from the South, bring baon everyday just to join that trip to Batangas, and all these tipid things you're doing because of what you found on the internet. But one day, you'll look back and laugh at your broke self and thank them; they made you become the person you are now.

A post shared by The Alpha (@seanxsebastian) on

Always stick to your goals and never give up. But don't overwork yourself just because of this. It's still nice to travel occasionally, drink beers on a Friday night, have overnights in a friend's condo and watch horror movies, play badminton late night with your officemates and question yourselves after why you guys did it. It's not wrong to have fun after all!

How's your experience as a yuppie so far? Tell us below!

Masarapba is an unconventional but unique food account because they add texts to their post right on the image itself. We became instant fans because of how straightforward they are. Meals are described with "Masarap" or "Hindi Masarap" and we love it when they add extra words to it like "Sobrang Sarap". It's simple, yet it actually perfectly gives you a direct idea of how the food is.

Ola: Serving Happiness With Home-baked Cakes, Cupcakes and Cookies

6:09 PM
A post shared by Ola (@olacupcakes) on

For those who loved to bake as a child, your creations always brought you delight. Ola Cupcakes will remind you of just that. It's a small open kitchen in BF Homes specializing in baking delicious home-baked cakes, cupcakes and cookies made just the way you want it.

How Ola started
The young lady behind it all is Pao Espina, who just like many of us, loved to bake when she was a child. She started baking as a hobby when she was just 9 years old as she mustered up old cookbooks to make cupcakes from scratch! From making use of just a pan steamer, her hobby turned serious when her Mom got her an oven, from there on, no one could stop her growing passion to learn more about baking. 
Ola HQ in El Grande Street, BF Homes
Ola HQ was born
As Pao continued baking and after years of practice and perfecting of flavors, she started to officially sell her creations three years ago. Orders piled up and she wanted to get more serious, seeing the demand of her baked goods, she needed a place to expand so she can bake all-day distraction free. 

Viola! the Ola Cupcakes HQ was born late 2016. Initially starting as an open kitchen to fulfill orders, Ola is now an open kitchen where people can see the baking happen before their eyes. It's such a comforting place to stay that they added a mini restaurant feel to it as they serve pastas and coffee as well.
Ola's specialties: Cakes, cookies and cupcakes
Home-baked goodness
Ola's aim is to put a smile on our every customers face through their sweet-inducing cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. What comes out of their open kitchen set-up are baked goods made from premium ingredients and everything is assured to be "siksik", so you don't feel cheated.

Cakes - They love to bake cakes and they can fulfill orders in any size and design. Their bestseller is the moist chocolate cake and specialize in buttercream cakes.

Cupcakes - For their cupcakes, they specialize in Black Forest, Blueberry, Red Velvet and Carrot flavors. We tried out the Black Forest and the first thing we noticed was how aromatic it was! It was really tasty with flavors staying in your mouth making you want more!

Cookies - For their cookies, the specialities are the inverted choco chip and the macadamia cookies. We took home some and the texture is just like it was fresh from the oven. It's hard to find these kinds of cookies anymore and we are very happy we now know where to get them.

All cakes, cookies and cupcakes are made from scratch and very tasty. Baking with passion and experience goes a long way and shows in their goods. You can't go wrong with the baked goods at Ola as they feel homey and are always perfectly baked.

Pasta, Sandwiches, Coffee and More!
Even if baked goods are the specialty at Ola, don't look over their delicious cooked meals and brewed beverages!

Their specialty pastas include creamy Carbonara and Lasagna with yummy spinach. Sandwiches are also a good option as they serve their own version of a clubhouse and a tomato and egg sandwich. To pair with their meals, they brew their own teas and coffees!

Everything served in Ola has this certain feel to it which is hard to point out, you just have to experience it yourself. Lastly, these meal items are only available at the HQ. Dropping by is a good way to unwind with their free-WiFi and cool breezes from their air-con.

Ola is all about happiness in their home-baked goodness. 

Ola serves cakes, cupcakes,and cookies for any occasion and they would be very glad to help you make your loved ones happy. Why? Because everyone deserves a sweet day. ;)
