Inspired by the series Game of Thrones, House of Griddle in The Yard Street Food Cinema is a new place to try for delectable food!
Rapid technological innovation has paved the way for better healthcare and medical solutions. Older people can move around with ease thanks to e-motors and scooters, people monitor their physical activity with handy trackers, and surgeons are able to perform more efficient and safer operations with smart surgical solutions.
These are just some of the breakthroughs of Taiwan Smart Healthcare products. Bearing the Taiwan Seal of Excellence—a mark accorded only to the highest quality brands— these revolutionary products have guided people toward healthier and safer lives.
Utilizing 3D and Digital Imaging for Safer Surgeries
In minimally invasive surgery, fewer and smaller incisions are made on the body to lessen postoperative pain, blood loss, and scarring. Thin needles and an endoscope, a tube-shaped instrument with a camera and light, are used to guide the operation. The MonoStereo 3D System converts the 2D video captured by the endoscope into a 3D display on a monitor. Through these images, doctors can get accurate depth feedback in real-time, ensuring surgical precision and faster procedures.
Smart Surgical Glasses from Taiwan Main Orthopedics Co. Ltd. allow doctors to plan more accurately prior to surgery. As the surgeon looks at the operative site, 3D images of the patient’s bones and tissues appear on the screen, allowing them to save real-time photos. This can reduce complexity and operation time by up to 30%. An additional benefit to medical staff is less exposure to radiation from X-rays.
Keeping Sugar Levels in Check
With conditions like diabetes, ongoing monitoring of blood sugar is a necessity. Bionime’s Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems allow diabetics to easily monitor their blood sugar. The GM260 model delivers accurate results in just five seconds, using only a tiny blood sample placed on a test strip. The GM700S and GM700SB work with multiple types of blood samples, and the latter facilitate the transfer immediate transfer of results to the smartphone via Bluetooth. The GM720 comes in an all-in-one fashionable case that holds additional strips and lancets.
Movement Anytime, Anywhere
Mobility becomes an issue for many people as they age. The ergonomic design and lightweight frame of Heartway Portable Scooters provide for traveling with comfort and ease. Weighing less than 27 kg, the foldable S19 Scooter Brio can be activated by one hand in seconds and may be stored inside a car trunk with no dismantling required. Powered by a lithium battery, it can travel up to 24km on a full charge. The S21 EASY MOVE folds up electronically with a single push of a button and can go up to 7 miles on a full battery. Both scooters support average weight builds and have easy-to-use controls.

Quezon City, though known as the most populated city in the Philippines, is not very much popular to skyscrapers as compared to Makati, the business district of the country.
For a person like me who is living in Quezon City, discovering Chill Top was a luck if I may say. I wouldn’t have to go in Makati or in Ortigas and brave myself to a 2-3 hour traffic just to indulge my eyes with the scenic view of the city because this roof deck resto bar is just located in Cubao. In addition to that, the comfort food and the booze are budget-friendly to the locals so everything is very much favorable.
We went there before sunset and it was just majestic. Tho the penthouse is just up to the 14th floor, there are not many neighboring buildings that would disrupt the 360 view of the city which truly makes the resto bar a good place to chill.
At night, the view is more lovely because of the twinkling city lights.
Most of the food served are “pulutan” or snacks for the alcoholic drinks but don’t worry as they serve rice. The chicken barbecute (P165) is generously coated in sauce. It’s called “mini” but it still contributed to making my tummy full. The Hickory Dickory Pork (P254) has a sweet sauce yet I’m telling you not to expect too much of the tenderness of the meat.
The newest addition to their menu, Flasher Squid (P320), is indeed flashy. It was served to us in its towering state where the squid is coated to add crispiness with the vinegar dip on the side. The flasher squid tasted great, seasoned well.
During my first visit, I was able to get into their Chill Along, an amenity for people who wants to go singing. I have tried a lot of drinks that night but it is Choco Slush P205 (gin, vodka, rum, chocolate, and milk) that captured my taste buds. It is sweet but not too much and alcoholic but not quite. It’s a drink I got to enjoy the most.
Going to Chill Top Cubao is not disappointing whether it will get crowded or not since it occupies two floors. The first floor of the penthouse is airconditioned but the glass windows still made us have a beautiful view. At night, it comes with the live band.
Meanwhile, the second floor of the penthouse is the open air one with the 360 view.
And lastly, a Chill Along KTV Bar is located near the elevator and is also spacious. It can accommodate 30 pax plus it has own comfort room. The price as I have said is pocket-friendly and the serving is reasonable for the price. The taste is delicious but nothing exceptional. The waiters are polite but the food was prepared for a long time.
Team Aldous held its 4th year anniversary at Wingman Collective last October 7, 2017. Aldous Calubad, the man behind this group has always been active to try different food restaurants around the metro. Later, he realized that exploring restaurants would be more fun when he is around with people who also share the same interest.
With the power of the internet on this generation, everything comes easy. He was able to gather bloggers who are also strangers to one another yet, were able to become friends as the years went on. Some people come, some people go which I am quite guilty about since I’ve been MIA for some time, however fast forward today, we have reached Team Aldous on 4!
While we were waiting for the others to arrive, the waitstaff started serving us onion rings (P150) and the garlic parmesan curly twist fries (P175). I’m sure the garlic parmesan curly twist fries is the basket that was so in-demand at that time because of its binging flavor. A-must try!
Erik Waldie, the owner, along with the marketing manager, Benj, welcomed us that aimed to showcase the food they offer plus a quiz night to test out our memory.
Erik hosted the quiz night perfectly mind-boggling but thanks to my teammates’ Joy and Tin for being so well-informed with the past and current events that we made to be in the second to the highest score!
Quiz night is for FREE! It happens in Acacia Estates, Taguig every Thursday but as for this branch, the Collective, is still needed to be discussed when it should regularly happen. Meanwhile, we were munching these wings as we were answering the quiz.
The Classic Buffalo Wings 6 pcs (P235) met my expectation on its sweet and tangy flavor.
HEADS UP! Every order comes with carrot sticks and ranch dip. Also, a dozen wings can be split into two flavors.
The Prairie Fire (P235) is also flavored like the buffalo wings but this time, the ranch dip is poured at the top and the spiciness can come from mild to extreme!
The Moroccan Chermoula (P235) is an exotic spice blend of North African spices. It’s unique, I would say.
This one is called Hell Fire (P235) and yes, it was flaming when served to us. I love spicy food, to be honest, however I cannot stand the hot sensation in my mouth. Man, the spiciness of this one lasts long.
