Mag Raul BBQ Haus

Do you know who Mang Raul of Las Piñas is?

If you ask Las Piñeros where the best barbecue place is, they will probably tell you it’s at Mang Raul’s BBQ Haus! I have visited the place a lot of times already with my family, friends, my ex-boyfriend-now-husband and it’s still my go-to place when I feel like craving for barbecue and chicken isaw! Their place is really well known as one of the top places to eat out in Las Piñas.

My husband and I were able to have time to ourselves so we gave Mang Raul’s BBQ Haus a visit. It’s been roughly 2 years since the last time we dined in there so we’re pretty much excited.

We went there around 4 o’clock in the afternoon to avoid prolonged waiting. We’re surprised of how the place have changed over the past two years. The ordering system was also revamped. Before, you will have to fall in line in front of the table where all the tupperwares containing the barbecue in sticks are in place. You choose your order and have it grilled. Then you go inside and wait for your orders to arrive and then pay after you’re already feeling full and satisfied. 😀

Now, the system is that you have to tell Ate (the one who’s handling the payments) what your orders are, pay for your orders and just sit down and relax ’til your orders are served. I find it more efficient than their old ordering system. They might be somehow avoiding customers who are fond of cancelling orders or leaving the place when they’re not yet even paid. Sadly, some people intentionally do those things. 😐

Amidst the changes that took place at Mang Raul’s, I must commend that their barbecues are still delicious and mouthwatering! Even the sauces are still the same. Their staffs are still the friendly ones and for just less than 300 Php, we’re delighted and full as we walked out of the door. Still one of the bests yet affordable eating places in Las Piñas!

Kudos to them for maintaining the same taste and quality of food. That, I guess, is what makes their business a success. We will definitely go back. And we’re actually hoping they could have a branch near our home in Parañaque! Hihi.

How about you? Have you gone to Las Piñas and visited Mang Raul’s BBQ Haus? Tell me about your experience!

HappyFresh | Joy Delivered To Your Home

I am not a fan of online shopping. That’s because I prefer going to malls and personally see the items I want to purchase, so I can have a look-and-feel of it before I actually buy it. That was my preference –  until I became a Momma. You know, the usual mommy problem that even trips to the restroom are time-constrained and even a 10-minute bath time is already a luxury?

I used to have the luxury of a whole day roaming around the mall, like a shop ’til you drop kind of life. But after giving birth, I found myself browsing online shopping sites and mobile applications because I don’t even have the time and energy to go to shopping malls anymore! Good thing, technology brought a lot of innovation that helps give convenience to people, especially to busy moms like me! And I have the latest discovery!



HappyFresh | Joy Delivered To Your Home


I recently downloaded HappyFresh mobile app in AppStore (it’s available on Android, too!). I met HappyFresh at the Blogapalooza Horizons: Uncharting the Uncharted event held on May 21, 2016. At first, I thought it was a brand of fresh juices because the logo looks like a happy fruit, but it wasn’t! Lol.

HappyFresh is the first and fastest growing groceries platform in the Southeast Asia! They offer services that deliver groceries from the stores you love right in front of your doorstep! They recently launched here in the Philippines and right now they are in partnership with Robinson’s Supermarket. In the busy world of mommas, isn’t this a happy treat to all of us who barely even have time for ourselves? Technology has just given us another convenient way to do the shopping and I can’t get any more excited about this. I’m yet to try this application, but let me share with you the 5 things I instantly love about HappyFresh and why I’m convinced with this new innovation.

1) You can do your shopping in front of your laptop or PC, and even on your smartphones!

Yes, you’ve read it right! HappyFresh is available in a web-based or mobile application so you can choose your groceries at the tip of your hands and be at home. And when you’re done, you just sit down on your couch, bond with your family, or do other household chores while you wait for your groceries to be delivered to your doorstep. Now, wouldn’t that be a convenience for you? 🙂

2) It’s Cash-on-delivery basis.

I know you’re probably worried about not receiving the items you ordered online. I’ve been skeptical about online shopping as well, for such a long time! But with HappyFresh, you don’t have to worry about not receiving your groceries because you will only pay for them when it has already arrived at your doorstep. I hope someday they will accept credit/debit cards as the mode of payment as well. Hmm, well, maybe in the future.

3) Your groceries are handled and delivered by a specially screened and trained shopper and driver.

For the shopper, you only have to pay them a fee which will depend on oh how much you’ve purchased. It’s like paying the service charge in a restaurant. And you don’t have to worry if the items you selected are suddenly out of stock in the market because you have the option to let the shopper contact you if that happens or you will let the shopper choose for you or not replace anything – before you place your grocery list.

Meanwhile, the delivery fee costs a fixed amount of 149 Php regardless of how many bags or boxes will be delivered to you.

Those fees are already included upon checkout of your item so you get the total amount of how much you have to pay when your groceries have arrived.

4) There are deals and discounts available for you.

Those are magic words to the Mommas, I know right?! 🙂 We’re always on the look for items that are a great deal because, what? We’re mommas, right? We do the budgeting most the time. So it’s good if we got to save money by being able to avail of discounts!

5) They deliver your groceries in just an hour – or even less.

Here’s our usual setup when we have to do the grocery:

An hour to get ready to go out, an hour of commuting to get to the shopping mall, then if we’re hungry we spend another hour (or two) eating in a restaurant, then another hour for doing the grocery. After doing all the errands and we have to go home then that’s another hour of commuting again.

All those hours and effort VERSUS the HappyFresh’s online grocery platform and an hour of delivery. Tell me, what’s not good about that? I get to save not just time but also an amount of energy. I get to play with my son or watch a movie at home with my husband instead of personally doing the grocery. Yay! 🙂

HappyFresh is an answered prayer for the SAHMs, WAHMs and also the working in the corporate office Mommas who are most of the time in charge of doing the grocery stuff. Instead of personally going to the supermarket to buy the stuff, you can just lie down in your bed while selecting the items you need to buy via the web or the app, and wait for it to arrive on your doorstep! You get to relax at your home instead of falling in line at the cashier. Less hassle, more rest! Who wouldn’t love that?

I am excited to try HappyFresh! I checked my planner and I am scheduled to do the grocery this coming weekend. I hope to have a pleasant online shopping experience with HappyFresh.
