Grab Philippines officially brings GrabShare to more cities in Metro Manila. The carpooling service – which had its pilot run in Makati, BGC, Manila and select areas in Ortigas in 2022 – is now also available in Mandaluyong, Pasig, San Juan, Pateros, and select areas in Paranaque and Quezon City.

GrabShare makes the same convenience and reliability of GrabCar more accessible and affordable for the Filipino commuter. With GrabShare, passengers can enjoy as much as 30 percent lower fares on Grab. The service’s passenger-matching feature was also further optimized to ensure that the party is headed in the same direction to avoid surprise detours, hence improving overall shared-ride duration.

“Every Filipino deserves unfettered access to safe, reliable, and more affordable means of transportation, and we are fully committed to help make that a reality for everyone. We are optimistic that as we expand GrabShare’s service areas to more cities in Metro Manila, we are staying true to our commitment – continuing to play an active role in providing a better mobility experience for everyone.”

The leading super app is also working on bringing GrabShare to cities outside of Metro Manila. With the growing availability of the service, Grab Philippines reminds its passengers to continue practicing health and safety protocols while on the road. This includes the wearing of face mask and regular hand sanitation.

For all avid home cooks out there, here’s a question we want you to answer truthfully: As much as you love making creations in your own kitchens, how often do you find yourself craving take-out food?

If your answer is "a lot," then you’re definitely not alone in your plight. Ordering in is as convenient as it goes, especially now in a time of food delivery services being available anywhere you are. More than that, there’s just something different about enjoying something prepped by your favorite restaurant. The magic lies in not having to slave in front of a stove–and enjoying restaurant-quality dishes in the comfort of your own home.
But then again, what really is the true meaning of restaurant-level food nowadays? What if we tell you that you can still enjoy the same quality of take-outs by cooking in your kitchen?
Convenience and quality come in the form of the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer, the new kitchen must-have for every discerning homemaker. The newest in the line of the premium brand’s standout oven models, the Smart Oven Air Fryer boasts an outstanding product DNA that can help anyone create restaurant-quality food at home.
Versatility-wise, this unit from Breville is packed with ten cooking functions that include toasting, grilling, roasting, slow cooking, and a dedicated air frying function. It also uses a dual-speed convection technology that reduces cooking time by 30 percent so you can enjoy your food faster. What makes the Smart Oven Air Fryer even better, moreover, is that it cooks without oil so you can enjoy healthier versions of your favorite dishes. Thanks to its trademarked Element IQ System—a smart algorithm that helps create the ideal cooking environment for a range of different cooking techniques—the guesswork for the right settings is taken out of the equation, making this unit ideal even for newbie home cooks. It’s like bringing a professional restaurant-level kitchen partner that does the work for you right in your very home.
If you’re wondering how far you can take your creativity with the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer, here are some recipes that you can try on your own. Fair warning, you might NEVER want to order take-out again after having a bite of them!
Donuts are never a miss if you have a sweet toot. Make your own handcrafted donuts at home by following this recipe.
975 g Flour, All Purpose
1.5 g Groceries, Yeast
20 g Sea Salt
100 g Refined, sugar
8 pcs Eggs, raw
220 ml Water
130 ml Dairy, Full Cream Milk
900 g Dairy, Unsalted Butter
60 ml Groceries, Buttermilk
20 ml Juice, Lime
1.5 g Salt, Kosher
300 ml Vegetable Oil
400 g Lime

Doughnut Procedure: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, and milk. Whisk in the butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until the liquid is absorbed and there are no lumps. The mixture will resemble muffin batter. It may look a little lumpy and slightly greasy but be assured that all of the butter will be absorbed by the time the dough rises. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature for 4 to 6 hours.
Uncover the bowl and use a rubber spatula to gently loosen the dough from the bowl. Dampen your hands with cool water and slide one hand under one side of the dough. Fold that side of the dough into the center and press it down gently so it adheres to itself. Give the bowl a quarter turn and repeat the folding process two more times. After the fourth fold, flip the dough over so the seams are on the bottom. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature for 8 to 12 hours, or overnight.
Uncover the bowl and repeat the folding procedure in the previous step. Put the dough onto a plastic wrap–lined baking sheet. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and pat the dough into a flattened dome. Refrigerate the dough until it is firm, at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.
Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper and lightly dust them with flour. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and dust a countertop lightly but evenly with flour. Turn the dough out onto the floured countertop and dust it with flour. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to a 3⁄8-inch (9 mm) thickness. Use additional flour if it begins to stick. Use a 3-inch (8 cm) doughnut cutter to cut out the doughnuts and put them onto the parchment-lined pans. Separate the holes from the doughnuts so they may be fried separately. Cover the pans loosely with plastic wrap and let the doughnuts proof for 1 hour. Gently ball up the trimmings from the doughnuts, put them in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until they firm up, at least 1 hour or up to 24. These trimmings may be rerolled to make additional doughnuts.
Pour 2 inches (5 cm) of oil into a large pot and heat it over medium-high heat until it reaches 350F (177C). Set a wire rack over a baking sheet. Put 4 to 5 doughnuts at a time in the oil and cook for 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon or spider to flip the doughnuts over and cook them for 1 minute on the other side. Flip one more time and cook for 1 minute more. The doughnuts should be golden brown. Use the slotted spoon to transfer the doughnuts from the oil to the rack to cool. Repeat to cook the remaining doughnuts. To cook the holes, put 12 into the oil at a time and cook for 45 seconds. Use the slotted spoon to turn the holes over and cook for 45 more seconds. Some of the holes may not flip, so use the slotted spoon to stir them in the oil so they cook evenly. Transfer the holes to the wire rack.
Lime Glaze Procedure: Put the confectioners’ sugar in a bowl and pour in the buttermilk, lime juice, and salt. Use a whisk to stir the mixture together until it forms a smooth glaze. Reserve at room temperature and whisk until smooth before using.
Dip one side of each doughnut into the glaze, then flip glaze side up and return to the cooling rack.
Grate the zest of 3 of the limes over the glazed doughnuts.
Once all the doughnuts are glazed, put the doughnut holes into the bowl with the glaze and grate the zest from the remaining lime into the bowl.
Use a spoon to mix the holes in the glaze and evenly coat them.
Transfer the holes to the wire rack and let the glaze harden. Serve once the glaze is firm to the touch, if you can wait that long.
