    Well I bought them. Haha! Wanted to support local products so I was veering away from imported ones, but still bought suebee for comparisons sake.
    I’ve ordered them by personal preference in the picture btw. I liked Mileas flavor but it has since developed a slight sour taste, maybe because its the least processed one, imo. Its not off-putting, it slightly tastes like bee propolis now. It’s not thick at all.
    -Capilano, I just like its flavor, very flavorful but not artificial. This one is thick.
    -Ilog Maria is not thick but it also has that natural honey flavor.
    -Thats the old suebee label, this tastes different from the other ones but it feels natural.
    -And then theres this generic honey that taste just like honey flavored syrup with sugared water concentrate. Which is not bad, we use this now for coffee/tea/cooking to not waste the other good ones. (I read that using honey in hot beverages destroys the good benefits of the honey.) This one does not form bubbles, unlike all of the other honey in this review(lol). It’s too clean/proceesed.

    some say that people should be wary of honey coming from mt.banahaw because so much “honey” product comes from there all year round that its suspicious already. di pa maubos honey sa banahaw! Hahha

    Anyone knows where to get large cuts of steaks? I’m looking around and steaks being sold are 1 inch or less. The only way is to go to a butcher, but they don’t have premium ones like USDA, Angus or Wagyu.

    Check out Rustan's near Glorietta, Makati. I think they have whole sections of beef that you can have the butcher cut to your specifications. You could also call Santi's Deli along Yakal street: https://santis-deli.com/meat.html

    Hi folks. I’m looking for the blow torch that you use for cooking. Sorry I don’t what it’s called. I’m also looking for the thermometer that’s used to check the temperature of your steak. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Funny, after Googling for the 500th year of Magellan's discovery of the Philippjnes per Yoyoy Villame's famous song, Magellan (On March 16, 1521, when Philippines was discovered by Magellan), my curiousity led me to Spice Island research, the 3 famous spices and lastly, ordering roasted cloves from Lazada :)
