Think I'll "weigh" in on this topic as well.😀 I can relate to the attitude that many Filipinos have about walking as my wife and I take an hour long walk every morning.  Seems like she's always e

I put some weight on when I first arrived here after tearing a few ligaments supporting my right knee.  An MRI scan also highlighted general wear and tear after 24 years in the forces. I'm one of thos

Been here in paradise since 2011 never put on or lose weight  ! I rarely eat rice , stay away from big cakes , a lot of things here are produced for the Filipinos ! Which amazes me for example 3 in 1 coffee , most are high in sugar ! Nestle a while back introduced a Blend and Brew coffee which was great but then they changed the recipe,( more sugar less coffee  ) i only buy san migs Barako coffee 3 in 1 now and and Nestle Gold which i make to my liking, my main diet consists of US burgers,chicken nuggets, Flounder,Blue Marlin, US cheese and fruit juices, Drinks from Australia, and Angus hot dogs, and the wife cooks me Cinnamon rolls and Chicken Kievs

And i love Jollibees champ burger !

Filipinos are addicted to this stuff, I will get heart attack by just reading the ingedients at the back of the satche... How hard it is to mix real coffee with hot water and add real sugar?

I hate the taste but each to their own.

Well I started using the 3 in one a long time ago and still use it. I have not found a coffee here I like but since Im used to 3 in one then it does me.

I started drinking 3 in one in the Philippines and now it's mostly what I drink (even here in Ausse I use sachet coffee now).

Yes it's not as healthy as real coffee... but it's just so damn quick and easy LOL
