New Wave of Cooking with Midea

Every woman, especially those who are married, dreams of having an awesome kitchen. Well, it might not be the most favorite place of many ladies but if they want to impress their husband, the best way to a man's heart is though his stomach.

Now here's a good news to those who are planning to upgrade their kitchen as world class brand Midea brings a new twist to your kitchen appliances! Its line of microwave ovens, induction cookers, digital multi-cookers and electric kettles is sure to make any homemaker’s life a lot easier without burning a hole in your pocket. Energy efficiency, solid performance and compact designs make these essential additions in any start-up household.

The products were presented during a bloggers event hosted by Midea Philippines at Marmalade Kitchen at BGC, Taguig City last night. Celebrity Chef Rob Pengson was there to do some cooking demo using the awesome Midea home appliances.

Microwave Ovens. Studies show that the use of microwave ovens in the Philippines is very low. This is mainly because of the common misconception that a microwave oven uses up a lot of electricity but a Midea Microwave Oven uses power efficiently that you only spend P1 in electricity per three-minute cooking time. Because of the way Midea Microwave Ovens work, you can cook faster and more efficiently. Contrary to popular misconceptions that microwave ovens zap food nutrition, Midea Microwave Oven promises a better retention of nutrients because of the short cooking time.

Digital Multi-Cookers. Rice cookers have evolved through the years into multi-cookers that are versatile to cook a number of dishes. Midea’s Digital Multi-Cookers are equipped with Thermal Circulation Technology, which ensures even heating in the cooking pot for perfectly cooked rice. In case you add too much water, its smart fuzzy logic control automatically adjusts the temperature and cooking time of rice. The honeycomb texture of the pot also allows it to retain heat efficiently, ensuring your rice is cooked evenly and thoroughly. These digital multi-cookers come with a number of presets that take the guesswork out of cooking. Just press a button, and you get perfectly cooked dishes in a matter of minutes. Aside from cooking rice, you can also use it to cook congee and stews, steam seafood, rice cakes and vegetables, make soup, and boil eggs. 

Midea’s Multi-Cookers come in two models. One model can even double as a pressure cooker. With it, you can cook the toughest cuts of meat until they are tender in a short time. Midea’s Multi-Cooker/Pressure Cooker have a 10-Dimensional Protection System and self-locking lid with auto/manual release function that ensure safety during cooking.

Induction Cooker. Midea’s Induction Cooker is a space-saving alternative to a gas range. Its slim design and sturdy construction make it a fitting addition to any kitchen. An induction cooker is more economical than gas range, and uses 37% less power than an electric stove. It cooks 40 percent quicker than an electric stove due to dual-coil technology that makes it heat up faster. It is safe to use around children because of its flameless heating and an auto shut-off feature.

Electric Kettle. Midea’s Electric Kettle is one of the safest kettles in the market. It has a number of built-in features that make boiling water not only economical, but also safe. In just three minutes, Midea’s Electric Kettle can boil water. It also has lower power consumption than other electric kettles. Midea’s Electric Kettle comes with double wall technology that prevents its exterior from heating, as well as keeping boiled water warm for a longer time. With its patented UK Strix control that ensures against dry boiling and protection from overheating, you and your family are safe from electric shocks, injuries or fire.

It also has integrated cord storage for safety and convenience. When not in use, you can easily wind the cord under the kettle to keep it away from accidents.

True to their commitment of enriching the different lifestyles of people, Midea lets you experience the same quality of innovative appliances but at a reasonable price.

Indeed, live different, choose different. 

Midea is one of the world's largest producers of consumer appliances. Established in 1968, Midea has consistently strived to make the lives of its consumers easier with their line of innovative products. On 2014, Midea Global partnered with Concepcion Industrial Corporation to bring the brand closer to Filipinos. For more information on Midea, please call +632-850-9888 or visit

Beautiful Moments with Mom and Dad

When I was young, I had this crazy thought that I am being raised by superheroes or humans who don't get tired and will not get old.

Every day I see my father holds a hammer like Thor and does wonders with it. With wood and nails, he has built houses (apartments, dog house, pigeon cage, and the likes) and that’s how good a carpenter he is.  He also used his hammer to split rocks, flatten metals and, I hope he won’t found out that I said this, I saw him one time crushing garlic with it while cooking adobo.  Only he and Thor can do so many things with a hammer.

How about my mother? She is our ever loving Nanay who takes care of us every day from cooking meals, washing clothes and cleaning the house while my father works.  Growing up, I saw how super with Tatay and Nanay are my mom.  And now that I am also a parent myself that I understand why they never get tired of doing everything for us. Indeed, a parent's care is the most unconditional love one can ever experience.

My dad and mom are a team like Superman and Supergirl because they possess awesome traits that can only be described as super. While Tatay is the soul of the family, Nanay is the heart. Everyone
listens to them.  They have shielded our family from any harm. Truly, the safest place on Earth is in our parents' loving arms. Both of them are barangay volunteers who devotes a few hours of service every night to help maintain peace and order in our community.

They are firm with their word.  They do everything to fulfill a promise.  I can’t remember any instance that my parents assured something and failed to do it.

And what I admire most about them, they never quit and bravely face every trial they meet in life. When our family was put to the test, they did not entertain the idea of a broken family and did everything to make us all bonded through thick and thin.

If only there is an wonder antidote or fountain of youth to make my mom and dad stay young and strong forever. I can't imagine living in this world without our parents.

I actually, googles "Fountain of Youth" one time and I stumbled unto a collagen drinks which are said to be the secret for longevity and beauty of Japanese people, who are known for their smooth skin and youthful appearance. Collagen drinks are, in fact, very popular in China and South Korea.

The good news is that we have Premium HyC 150, developed by FINE Japan Co. Ltd., is now available in the Philippines. Premium HyC 150 is unique because it is the only supplement drink that has the optimal combination of active anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and ubiquinol.

Premium HyC 150 has other benefits that go beyond skin care and a rejuvenated, more youthful look. To maximize the benefits of collagen, one important element, hyaluronic acid, has to be present. At least 50 percent of hyaluronic acid in our body can be found in our skin.

I found out via that the product is available in Watsons stores nationwide.

Now, I have a good idea now what to give them on their upcoming anniversary celebration. But more to that is a gift of assurance that I will forever take care of them for as long as I live. For now, I
will continue to make beautiful moments with mom and dad for years to come.
