5 Effortless Romantic Dinners You Can Make at Home

Sitting in traffic for hours so that you can wait in line to get into that crowded, noisy restaurant can be the ultimate buzzkill for any date. So this Valentine’s Day, why not ditch tradition and surprise your special someone with a homemade dinner?  

Even if you have minimal skills in the kitchen, there are some easy meals you can make that will knock the socks off your date. A simple search on the Internet will turn up a hundred of these recipe ideas, but we’ve picked out five of our favorites to share with you!



1. Pesto chicken pasta

Pasta is simple enough to make and pretty foolproof, but when topped with a zesty pesto and slices of perfectly pan-seared or grilled chicken breasts, it makes an impressive and filling dish. 

The trick is twofold: splurge on good-quality, artisan bottled pesto, and make sure that your chicken breast fillets are not dried out or (the horror) raw inside. If you’re unsure in the kitchen, better pick a fresh-chilled fillet instead of frozen to take the guesswork out of cooking time.

Serve with your sweetie’s favorite bottle of wine and some citrus fruits, and you’re golden.    




2. Whole Roast Chicken

The beauty of this recipe is that not only are there a dozen variants you can adapt to your tastes, but also that you don’t necessarily need an oven to make it. If you can borrow a pressure cooker for the big day, then you’re all set. 

Start with the best ingredients. You’ll want to choose a fresh-chilled whole chicken instead of a frozen bird for a couple of reasons: first, defrosting can be tricky for a novice cook. Second, freezing and defrosting can destroy the meat’s cellular structure, so fresh-chilled meat is the better choice for a juicy and flavorful finished product.

The basics: some type of oil to brush on the skin, salt and pepper to taste (remember to salt the inside of the bird too), and herbs for flavor. You can stuff your chicken with garlic, thyme, rosemary, and lemons, and place in an oven or pressure cooker that’s been preheated to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 10-15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and keep cooking for 20 minutes per pound. Serve with roasted veggies and enjoy!

3. Baked oysters

Who doesn’t love the occasional serving of this popular aphrodisiac? Baked oysters are simple to prepare, and to customize the meal, you have a slew of toppings to choose from. Anything from a simple drizzle of salt and lemon to a complex blend of herbs and cheese will work well. Serve atop a bed of coarse sea salt with a side of chilled leafy salad and either wine or their favorite Tequila for a hot evening. 



4. Steak and potatoes 

Here’s a secret: you can now get premium Wagyu cubes at select sites around the metro, and they make an exceptionally easy, sexy meal. Toss them onto a hot grill or griddle, cook until done to the degree of doneness that you like your beef – for Wagyu medium rare is recommended- and then serve them with an assortment of dips and sides such as grilled Portobello and shitake mushrooms, leafy greens, pickles, baby potatoes, or an assortment of cheeses. 

A meal that can be done in under an hour, all it takes is a wide enough table, enough bowls for all your sides and dips, cute skewers, and a partner who likes their meals interactive.


5. Hainanese Chicken

This recipe for Hainanese is a little bit of a cheat, and needs a little more attention than most of our suggestions, but it’s definitely worth it!

Stuff a fresh-chilled chicken with lemongrass, ginger, kinchay, a bouillon cube,  and a quartered onion. If it’s a particularly large fowl, lay it on a bed of the same in a pot that’s large enough to hold the entire chicken underwater. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the bird and its dressings, and put on the stove on high. Once it boils, turn the heat down to low and wait until the chicken is cooked and tender. 

While you wait, prepare the sauce. Chop up green onions and grate young ginger finely, add salt to taste, and either gently sauté in sesame oil or pour heated sesame oil over the mix. Add a scoop of broth from the chicken once it’s done cooking, set aside. 

When the chicken is done, carve and plate it. Before serving, heat some sesame oil, drizzle salt over the chicken skin, and then carefully drizzle the hot oil over the chicken as lightly and evenly as you can. Serve with the ginger and onion sauce and a bowl of steamed white rice. 

These recipes are just the tip of the iceberg! There’s a whole world of easy romantic dinners you can find with a simple online search, but to make it truly special, you need to remember the basics: use the absolute best ingredients you can get your hands on, pay attention to your plating, and make sure you give some thought to how you’re going to eat dinner – the right cutlery, the right stemware, the right drinks. 

Follow these three simple rules and you’re well on your way to having a Valentine’s Day dinner to remember! 02/13/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

Feel the Fight and Romance in the Highest Grossing Chinese Film "Never Say Die"



The Chinese New Year (CNY) is fast-approaching. And just like most of you, a Chinoy blogger and vlogger like me is preparing for this tradition. Yes, it is always my tradition here in my personal blog Bits of Rocks to celebrate the Chinese tradition with you via featuring Chinese-themed posts. On the previous years, I already featured Chinese horoscope, beliefs, holiday treats, and fun stuffs which definitely captured your attention.

This year, let's take the entertainment side (since entertainment is also one of my fortes). Have you already planned for a date with your love one watching a romcom Chinese movie?   

Before KPOP domination here in the Philippines, Chinese movies were considered crowd favorites in the foreign film entertainment scene especially with themes leaning toward romcom, action and supernatural.  Another instance was during the height of the Mexican telenovela in the country in the early 2000, Chinese series Meteor Garden starring F4 was such a big hit on Television.

Chinese movie followers or even those who crave for fresh films are in for a hilarious treat as the recent blockbuster top grosser in China and Hong Kong over the recent months will now be shown in the country. Never Say Die will leave you excited all throughout the film and will have you laughing your heart out as Ai Lun (Edison) and Ma Li (Xiao Xiao) bring you a mixture of all the elements you love in a Chinese film; Action, RomCom and Supernatural all in one movie. The film is the highest-grossing in China in 2017 with a whopping US$334 million recorded in the box office.

The Official Movie Poster of Never Say Die

Never Say Die surpassed the US$250 million earned by Jackie Chan’s film Kung Fu Yoga last year, to become the biggest single-territory grosser among all live-action comedies ever released.

Here is a one-minute trailer of the said film:



Never Say Die is a movie about a has-been Ultimate Fighting King (UFK) boxer who can’t seem to get a good fight and a celebrity Journalist who is caught it in a bad romance and how destiny allowed them to straighten their acts as they switch bodies and embark in a series of misadventures to fix their intertwined predicament.

This is such an interesting film bringing back the F4 and Meteor Garden feels! Agree?! 02/06/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

The Comfiest Pet Depot E-collar Cone for my Dog is Here!



My pet is quite notorious for aggravating further its wounds and injured areas. It’s quite frustrating for me but I think it’s instinctive for my dog to bite, scratch, and lick its injured body parts, thus causing more problems to its skin. It’s a good thing that my friend suggested me to avail the best solution which is the Elizabethan collar (e-collar), also known as the “cone of shame”. I’ve seen cone-wearing canines before, but more often than not, they typically run into walls and struggle to eat or do anything they want due to the plastic barrier. It impairs their peripheral vision, and not just that, the plastic material can rub against their skin and can cause painful rashes. Trust me, I don’t want that to happen to my dog, so I’ve tried to look for some alternative to keep my pet at ease during its healing process. 

I’ve tried sifting through the internet and found this cute Pet depot e-collar comfy cone from an online shop called Takatack.com. It immediately caught my attention because it’s not the ordinary e-collar I usually encounter as it’s made up of soft fabric and cushion. For me, it somewhat deviates from being tagged as the “cone of shame” due to its cute design, and I bet my dog would love it!

So, I finally tried this pet accessory on my dog and I like how it’s easy to put on since you can enclose it with double Velcro snaps. It seems to be much more comfortable than the usual plastic, plus the material didn’t cause rashes or irritation to the neck area of my furry little one. Aside from that, the size was just enough for my dog to move around. Indeed, it was a great alternative to the stiff plastic Elizabethan collars. My dog didn’t mind wearing it all day and night. And now, my dog is fully healed, thanks to this e-collar!

If you’re looking for an eye-catching e-collar that’s comfortable at the same time, I recommend you to check out Takatack.com. They have a variety of designs for collars and other pet accessories to keep your pets safe and protected. 01/22/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

Watch: Vivo's Touching Christmas Video


Christmas is a time of loving, giving, and sharing. Truly, this season touches our hearts specially when we do a good deed to others. The Filipino Christmas values this tradition.

To celebrate the holiday in true Filipino Christmas spirit, Vivo Philippines releases a special holiday video depicting a touching story of a widow, her children, and a husband and father they lost in a war.

The story revolved around a grieving wife and mother who tends to her small children on a Christmas eve when a group of carolers offered a rendition of ‘Silent Night’ outside their home. Laden with gifts and noche buena food, the carolers were then welcomed inside the home of the aggrieved family only for the former’s emotions to be stirred by a solitary portrait of the father of the home—a soldier who perished fighting for peace.

The Vivo special Christmas video is an instant hit amongst the family-oriented Filipinos, garnering 781,000 views, 4,212 shares and almost 41,000 likes within six days after its release on Vivo Philippines’ official Facebook page. Because of its theme centered on family, Christmas, togetherness, and gratitude, Vivo’s special Christmas video hits home for many Filipinos. The comments section abounds with emotional sentiments with messages of gratitude for the soldiers who fought to re-establish peace in Marawi. Some of the comments even expressed gratitude to Vivo for “giving [the audience] an avenue to thank the ones who enabled them to celebrate Christmas in peace.” “very meaningful and heartwarming! a tribute to all our soldiers and father! hats off to Vivo management for making this short film.”




Vivo, by way of the special Christmas video, shares and celebrates what a truly meaningful Christmas for Filipinos. Family, togetherness, empathy, and the spirit of giving make a Filipino Christmas like no one else in the world. 

Here is the said touching video:

Meeting Wildflower's Emilia Ardiente Torilio, Aiko Melendez!

Perhaps, she is now the most effective kontrabida in Philippine TV series. She makes our blood boils at the same time, she makes our bored life lively with her cool and crazy gestures specially in most of her encounters with her mortal enemy Ivy Aguas or  Lily Cruz (Maja Salvador).

Unboxing Soon: A Clearer Selfie with my Vivo V7

Selfie is life! Yes, that is true to me since I'm dubbed as the "Selfie King."  In most of my events specially the one with the celebrities, I can even handle taking a selfie interview video which is a Runner Rocky's trademark.

Therefore in any smartphone, I'm concern with its front camera so that I can take a perfect selfie with my subject!

I was already introduced to the different smartphones from mid to hi-end. But still, most of them were lacking the basic needs of the blogger and vlogger like me. But thanks God, I found my new companion! 

This time, I was introduce to the newest rising star - the Vivo Smart Phone. And I got its brand new model, the Vivo V7.




I'm so excited to know this new phone very well. Yes, I'll unbox it very soon! What do you think are the major features of this new Vivo V7? What makes it ahead against its competitors? How about its camera that I'm looking for? Will this be the one meant to me?!

Well, will share all these things on my next post. Let me tease you for the meantime to keep your excitement burning!

Excited to Unbox the Vivo V7 Smartphone

Promise, you'll be the one to witness the unboxing of my new phone companion. I'll capture every detail of this phone from inside the box until its complete setup. And later on, it will capture my precious moments from all of my passions which keep me busy.

I'm pretty sure, Vivo Smartphone is truly the one for Rocky! 11/14/2017 (Bits of Rocks)

Enjoying Another Barkada Pizza Night

The day of February 9 was dubbed as the "World's Pizza Day." It was the day wherein the biggest pizza company is offering an unlimited pizza to all of its client.

We didn't missed the celebration! Though we didn't had our group dinner in the said pizza resto offering the unlimited pizza due to time constraints, we had our celebration on the other pizza parlor!

And below is our group dinner photo:



Though we didn't avail the unlimited pizza, we still enjoyed the unlimited kulitan and chikahan with barkada  sharing different stories specially my revelations!

The said pizza night out also served as Eman's pre-final lunch out as he will leave our company. At the same time, this was also the soft launch of Team Runner Rocky's official team poster! 02/10/2017 (RCB)

The Nuestra Señora De Gracia Church

It's great to be back in one of the oldest church in the Philippines, the Nuestra Señora De Gracia Church located in Guadalupe, Makati City.

Yes, this is my second time to visit this church with an ancient architecture. The first visit was last January 2014 during the wedding of my college bestfriend Marfe Antonette Burmudo-Mallari.

After three years, Janury 29, 2017, I returned to this church but this time, for the baptismal of my new goddaughter, the second child of Marfe, Olivia Green!

Check out my souvenir postcard photos on this historic church below: 




This church is really rich in scenic views. Yeah, its perfect for photos and prenup videos! We can definitely add this to our travel collection!

Back-to-Back Events in Two Consecutive Days!

The weekends of January 28 and 29, 2017 was truly a very busy days for me. I had two back-to-back events on two consecutive days transforming me from a blogger to a runner to a ninong and to a host! 

Saturday morning of January 28 during the celebration of the Chinese New Year, we had ran a fun run called the CNY Lucky Run 2016 together with my very own running team, the Team Runner Rocky.

Night of the said day, my team then attended a media launch for a Valentines event called the Love Locks Fair 2017. And we enjoyed the buffet dinner at the Prestige Cruise. I have shared a glimpse of these two events in my fitness blog Runner Rocky via the post Team Runner Rocky on CNY and Prestige Cruise.

Then on Sunday morning, January 29, I started the day attending the baptismal of my new goddaughter Olivia Green. She is my second inaanak to my college bestfriend Marfe Antoneitte Bermudo-Mallari. And the church where baby Olivia was baptised was also the church where Marfe tied the knot to his husband Richmond.

Then on the evening, we have hosted a big surprise birthday party to our TRR teammate and friend Nelson Cuevas in Malayan Hotel, Ortigas. 

And look, seems that each day have their own color coding - red for Saturday and blue for Sunday!

That was really a very busy weekend! This week, another back-to-back events were set to happen! And I'll definitely keep you posted on them! 02/01/2017 (RCB)

Congrats Aljur Abrenica and Kylie Padilla!


The Kapuso stars Aljur Abrenica and Kylie Padilla are currently the talk of the town after the news of Kylie's pregnancy to Aljur's child. Therefore, Kylie's character as Amihan in the GMA-7's telefantasya "Encantadia" was killed!

Afterwards, the two announced that they were already engaged. And they were happy to have a baby. And followed by Robin Padilla's (Kylie's father) approval and excitement of his grandchild.

Different reactions spread in the world wide web. Some netizens bashed Aljur. Others get mad because their favorite Encantadia  character was pulled out from the show.

I already met these two in various events before. And yes, they were both good. And I would like to congratulate these two first for having a baby and second for their engagement! "Kayo din ang nagkatuluyan sa wakas!" I'm so happy for you both!

Sharing with you again my very recent photos with Kylie and Aljur from two different events before:

Having a baby is truly a blessing! It is an answered prayer! You both are not only successful in your respective careers, but successful in your lovelife as well! Soon, you will be a one happy family! 

Congrats again Amihan Kylie Padilla and Machete Aljur Abrenica! 01/28/2017 (RCB)
