M&S Personality Feature: Nikki Honasan’s Christmas Shopping Tips

"Being a mom keeps me busy as I’m very hands on and at the same time, I enjoy spending time with my little boy, India. My five-year old keeps me entertained for sure,” said 41-year old Nikki Serrano-Honasan. Her yoga practice keeps her occupied as well. She starts each day on the mat, whether it’s ten minutes or two hours. Yoga & meditation keep her anchored wherever she is. This sets the tone & energy of the day as she goes about her mommy & teacher duties.  With Christmas around the corner, Holiday decorating and gift shopping adds up to the must-do list.

“Growing up my siblings and cousins would all spend it in our lola’s house in the province, gathered around the table for Noche Buena followed by the much awaited part of the evening, the gift giving. Now living in Boracay with a small family of my own, I find myself carrying this tradition with me while sharing it with her island family. We have Noch…

Taste of Home at Mommy Gaya Restaurant by Edens

From then Eden’s Lechon atbp back in  2000, humbly started with only 4 viands in the menu, this family owned business owned by siblings Ligaya, Eden and Charlito turned out successful with the help of their entrepreneural and culinary background. Their first fastfood branch was at the Victoria Plaza and now expanded to  a number of more food carts in Davao. 

Among the siblings, Ligaya who then resided at La Verna Subdivision in Buhangin didnt want to leave her old home and her 10 year old bakeshop. She eventually decided to renovate and convert it to a very homey dining place than can cater to at most around 40 to 50 people. MOMMY GAYA RESTAURANT BY EDENS serves authentic Filipino dishes. Including Maam Ligaya's signature Puto Bumbong.  I also fell in love with the cozy interiors and their extra friendly staff. It just like dining in the confort of your own home. 

Last weekend’s food tasting lunch with friends from Davao Digital Influencers was really tummy filling. If you are a Fi…
