1. FOOD *****
Brand new menu! I could say, that you should try everything! If you are a rice person, you'll be happy to have a taste of the new Rice Meals! If you're a pizza lover, the Surf n Turf will give you a delight.

The branch here in Edsa Shangri-La Plaza is located at the West Wing with the glass wall on one side. The high ceiling makes me feel good. I don't know why I really appreciate high ceiling structures. You can bring your big group or family for good food and company.
3. LOCATION ****
I seldom visit Ortigas area, but if the Glorietta and Century Mall gets full packed, I can swing by to Edsa Shangrila. Hahahaha!

 4. PRICE ****
The prices are reasonable enough to enjoy a good and decent meal. You have options of having a half portion or full portion of some dishes from the menu.
The friendly staff gave us a stress-free dining experience! I love you Cris!

 What's my favorite here?  The SURF n TURF TRIO
 Come and visit California Pizza Kitchen!

Discover the secret to Marian Rivera’s baby soft, smooth skin

Marian Rivera is no doubt every Filipina’s #lifegoals. To start, she is married to top matinee idol, Dingdong Dantes to whom she shares her adorable daughter Zia with. She holds the title of Kapuso Primetime Queen, being the only actress in television history to have played all three iconic roles of Marimar, Darna, and Dyesebel. And who can forget the fact that she has millions of loyal followers and a beauty that gets her thousands of likes for every social media post.

Marian’s Eurasian features are best complemented with her sweet smile, but her most valuable asset is really her baby soft, smooth skin. You may blame good genes for that but according to the superstar herself, keeping her skin beautiful actually takes a lot of effort, especially since she is constantly exposed to thick makeup, heavy lights, and sleepless nights. So, how does a Marian Rivera keep skin perfect despite all these?

Sa totoo lang, ang pinaka-importante talaga sa akin eh yung pinapanatili kong strong and healthy ang skin ko so it can keep up with the demands of my family and my career. That’s why I use products that provide moisture and deep nourishment like Johnson’s® Milk+Rice™ and Milk+Oats™. I believe that when your skin is strong and healthy, it’s easy to achieve beauty,” shared Marian.

This is true according to Dr. Loverna Arcilla Suratos, MD, FPDS, a guest resource speaker in the recently concluded Johnson’s® #Dadventures Camp media event held at Dusit Thani Manila. “More than aiming for cosmetic benefits such as whitening, it’s important to choose products that can nourish skin to make it strong and healthy. Strong skin is more resilient against harsh environments that can cause dryness or even scarring, possibly putting cosmetic efforts to waste,” she said.

Marian Rivera swears on using Johnson’s® Milk+Rice™ and Johnson’s® Milk+Oats™ in keeping her and Zia’s skin in tip-top condition. Johnson’s® Milk+Oats™ contain avenamethrides, a naturally-occurring compound that protects skin against irritation. Oats are also known to specialize in healing dry and sensitive skin, bringing soap-damaged skin back to its natural, healthy state. Johnson’s® Milk+Rice™, on the other hand, is fortified with 200% more vitamins that works deep within the skin to provide long-lasting moisture, improving skin smoothness, softness, and suppleness with every use.

Get strong skin that stays baby soft and smooth like Marian and Zia with JOHNSON’S® Milk+Rice and JOHNSON’S® Milk+Oats. Available in leading supermarkets, drug stores, and department stores nationwide.

Three Recipes from The Three Hot Bodies of Century Tuna

Gerald, Matteo, and Paulo's recipe to sexy with Century Tuna
It might be already raining lately in the afternoon, but hey it’s officially summertime! And we can’t think of a better way to get into the groove of things than with the country’s number 1 tuna, Century Tuna, as it presents three “My Recipe to Sexy” dishes from three of the fittest and sexiest actors today, each one with his own distinct handsome looks, unique talents, and personalities!
As we all know Century Tuna as the choice of health and fitness buffs, but it is also the favorite of many foodies out there as it’s a great, delicious addition to any dish. So why not have three of the most popular male actors share their favorite, easy-to-prepare and oh-so delicious Century Tuna recipes?
Mr. Greg Banzon, Century Pacific Food, Inc. VP & General Manager “Like Gerald, Mateo and Paulo, Century Tuna is very versatile,”. ”You can use it in different dishes, allowing you to be creative in creating your own recipe to sexy!”
First, there’s Gerald Anderson. After becoming the Third Big Placer in the first season of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition in 2006, and after a string of television appearances, movie roles, and as part of a popular love team, Gerald proved his acting worth in the gritty, acclaimed film On The Job.

Gerald also shares, "Breakfast for me is very important, and I wanted a dish that’s a healthier take on the typical Pinoy breakfast so I came up with this super delicious Tuna Silog. “  All nutritious, delicious, and most of all easy to prepare!

Next, there’s Matteo Guidicelli. Following a decorated stint in the fast lane as a karting racer garnering numerous trophies, Matteo entered showbiz in earnest, attending drama and performing arts school in the United States to further hone his craft. On top of that, he also released his first self-titled album in 2016!

Matteo reveals, “I’m always on the go, I love having a lean sandwich because it’s easy to prepare. Just like my Tuna Egg Salad Sandwich on wheat bread which is healthy yet very satisfying!”

Paulo Avelino, considered in the industry as “The Prince of Teleseryes”, Paulo has starred in a number of outstanding indie movie releases, among them Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa which earned for him the Best Actor nod from the prestigious Gawad Urian.

And “Tuna Pancit Canton is the ultimate, yummy comfort food – something you can make in a jiffy!” Paulo declares.

You may ask, what brings these 3 fit and sexy gentlemen together this scorching summer? They’re the latest faces – and hot bods – in the Century Tuna’s newest summer TVC, one that spells fun and fitness by way of its “My Recipe to Sexy” campaign! For those who’ve not seen the ad which is now airing on primetime TV, it features the trio as “hot cooks” as they respectively present their favorite recipes to a sexy, healthy bod: 
So…this summer…what’s your recipe to sexy?
Thanks to Century Tuna which is lean and adaptable, you can easily prepare and enjoy a myriad of irresistible meals. And if you can have these hot cooks as fitspiration, it could even get better!
Yes, summer equals frolic and fun under the sun, but it doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself just to stay fit and sexy. There's always Century Tuna to open and enjoy without guilt.

Be summer ready now!
