My Food Review Blog at Tahong Island in Paranaque!!!

Tahong Island: Best Baked Mussels in the South of Metro!!!

Tahong Island Background History:
What started as a small selling business now grew into a well-known spot for the best baked mussels in the South area. Tahong Island offers fresh mussels, shrimps and fish dishes created in a way that is perfect for Filipino's taste buds.

Trish Aguilar & Edward Gutierrez,Owner
of Tahong Island
Back in 2014, power couple Edward Gutierrez and Trish Aguilar started their business by selling their baked mussels in their offices during the holidays. It was a big hit, and after a few years, they were able to save up to rent a place in Pilar Village, Las Pinas.
"The feedback from the local communities was overwhelming. I am very thankful to our customers who remained loyal to us ever since we started the business. Even if we transfer to several locations. they did not stop ordering from us, " said Gutierrez. Tahong Island's dishes are all his original recipes. With no professional training, Gutierrez runs the business with his passion for cooking and entrepreneurship.

"I love doing Tahong Island," mused by Aguilar. She handles marketing, accounting and finance for the business. "It was something we both loved doing together. When were we just selling our products in our offices, I never expected Tahong Island to branch out into a full pledged business. Now, I am glad that we are reaching more people, and that more people love what  we do as well."

Me and Kim Baylon (Food Blogger Selfie Goals)
Whenever, I signed up for a food review, I see to it that every food chain or restaurant will be a memorable one, that every food that the owner will serve will have its own stories to tell. Definitely, it never failed to amused me hearing their simple beginnings, how they started and their passion, why they're continuing their food business is quite remarkable and inspiring.

Indeed, I'm a seafood lover, I loved mussels so much even if its grilled or baked because every weekends, whenever, my uncle boy and my cousins visited us, when, were still young,  tahong is one of our fave dishes that he cooked for us.

Kim Baylon,Gus Cabredo,Me and Lhourdhess Mercadero (Food Bloggers Squad Goals)
When, we finally get there at Tahong Island with my fellow Food Bloggers, I started to take pictures of the food especially, those yummy and cheesy baked tahong. Seeing those melted cheese infront of me, signals my brain that this meal is very delicious. Also, I was so delighted seeing my favorite buttered garlic shrimp with those large trays filled with big-sized shrimps with new amazing names such as: Shrimpy-Shrimp. Indeed, tells me that will be having an amazing meal on our table.

The Shrimp Dish has two varieties, the one that I mentioned is Shrimpy-Shrimp and the other one, Garlic Shrimp. Those two dish will guarantee to solve your cravings for Shrimp Seafood.

One Shrimp is not enough to take a bite. However, this food haven is known as Tahong Island. So, you can eat as many Tahong as you wish, as long as you pay it! You will love its cheesy flavor and their baked Tahong its so tasteful.

But, of course, don't forget to order their Boneless Bangus, they have their own secret recipe, ideal for summer outing and a great menu to bring along with.

The price is affordable and its worth the taste. It's highly recommended by yours truly but if you're allergic to seafood yet your craving for it. Don't forget to take some anti-histamines in case your run into rashes.

If you asked me, where did I found the baked mussels in the south of Metro, definitely, I'll say here in "Tahong Island, BF, Paranaque". So, visit the place and try their baked tahong, its so yummycheesylicious!

Here are some photos taken at the Tahong Island Food Tasting Invites:

Enduro Pilipinas Presscon uplifting PH Tourism for Local & International Participants!!!

Enduro Pilipinas Officers

Mountain Bike Racing known as MTB or ATB racing is gaining its popularity nowadays because,  a lot of individuals is entering into a new sports to stay healthy and fit. Some are eager to experience exciting trail ride challenges. I was so excited and at the same time curious about Enduro Pilipinas Presscon. I was thrilled and overwhelmed by this Sports. Upon seeing those fabulous photos of Bikers on top of a mountain makes me more eager to know more about how Enduro Pilipinas started and their vision for future races here in our country and abroad.

As we all know that, Enduro Mountain Bike Racing is a form of Mountain bike racing in which there is a number of timed downhill sections of trail, and a number of uphill transfer stage to test your endurance, speed and physical stamina to finish a race. 

During, Enduro Pilipinas Press Conference happened at R.O.X, BGC, Taguig last February 15. It talks about the History of Philippine Enduro, Future National Races for 2017, Induction of Officers, Launching of the Enduro Mobile App and Enduro Asia Magazine with Mr. Sly Lumbao, founder and organizer of Enduro Network. 

Mr, Sly Lumbao, Pioneer of Enduro Pilipinas
Just to give you a glimpse on how Enduro Pilipinas started, according to my research, Enduro started much like mountain biking itself – it filled a new, emerging need for bike riders. Mountain bike racing has always highlighted the extremes of the sports, said Mr. Lumbao. The Enduro Network started in 2012 and has continued its inaugural season into 2013.

It all started when a friend of Mr. Sly invited him for a ride in Angono Rizal way back in 2008. He instantly fell in love with the uphill and down hill race of the mountain. In early 2010, he met a small group of riders who introduced him to a real trail riding. The group evolved from epic XC (cross country) riders to AM (all mountain) and the name of the group is BACAT.

So, Mr. Sly conceptualized its first leg of race for The Enduro Network in Bataan for only 35 riders in 2013. Now, on its 5th year, growing with big numbers of riders and continuing his passion in bringing Enduro Race within those amazing trail spots within our land, wherein numerous Filipino Riders and MTB Enthusiasts are helping hand in hand with Mr. Sly Lumbao and Ms. Ione Baron Mejia, Managing Director of Enduro Philippines to bring more Enduro Race globally.  With its fast appeal within the MTB world, lots of bikers are joining, not only to test their endurance but to gain respect of their fellow athlete, to develop solid camaraderie and friendship among peers of riders and to share their passion of Mountain Biking across the Globe. To simply appreciate the beauty of their surroundings. To conquer difficult trails, to test their stamina and to believe on themselves that they can finished the race with dignity and Self-confidence.

Together with Mr. Sly Lumbao, founder & organizer of  The Enduro Network,  Dept. of Tourism in Zambales, Marketing and Media Network spreading its good news to all MTB & Enduro Riders for its 5th year organizing Enduro races across the country.

I'm glad to say that Mr. Sly Lumbao, pioneer of Enduro Pilipinas, is a family man and has a great passion in Mountain Bike Racing and a race organizer mentor. Also, he is a member of EMBA- Enduro Mountain Bike Association and professional K9 Behaviorist. 

Enduro Pilipinas Team and Family

“ENDURO IS THE ESSENCE OF MOUNTAIN BIKING…” That is what Ritchie Schley, one of the world’s foremost mountain bike riders, has said about the mountain bike racing format; and he’s not the only one who thinks this either. Enduro riding is the fastest growing biking discipline and racing format, not just in Europe, but all over the world. And it’s time that the Philippines gets a taste of the action. " from ProRiderSeries Sly Lumbao by Prancisfena

During the WSI Technology talks, I've learned that almost, 554, 454,942 total records had been stolen or lost since 2013. Those numbers of breaches where compromised by an unknown cause but mostly hacktivist, malicious insider or accidental loss. So, the most important approach is to secure data's and protect identity because data is the most critical assets of a company or an institution. Indeed, those growing threats should be coordinated in response to Cyber Security Services which is the top most priority of a company and Microsoft gives safer and secured platform to prevent cyber attacks.
