Well, last Sunday saw the opening of a rare find, indeed: a place that I actually can recommend to those who have similar viewpoints as I do; a place where I can take my family and feel good that they’re snacking on wholesome food.
The White Hat, a frozen yogurt place, located on the first floor of the new Ayala Centrio mall.
If you’re thinking, “Another frozen yogurt place, big deal!” then allow me to correct you.
|That's why it's so good!|
All you need to do is taste it. It is creamier, yummier, and healthier. Real dairy, from real Philippine cows, makes for a really good yogurt experience! Why is real yogurt so good for you? Well, all the nutritious food and supplements you ingest mean nothing if you don’t have a healthy stomach to digest it with. Your stomach needs beneficial bacteria, and real yogurt has lots of it. You can also check out this article on the many health benefits of yogurt.
So, White Hat Yogurt = good, wholesome eating. Add some fruits and nuts, and you’re set for a guilt-free, delicious snack! I personally add three toppings to my yogurt: kiwi and strawberry, which are considered among the healthiest fruits out there; and walnuts, which are good plant-based sources of Omega-3. My kids also like this combo, especially my middle child, Mesoo, who considers kiwi her favorite fruit.
- Sourdough waffles! Most other places use the cheap waffle mix, but not The White Hat. They use real sourdough, baby!! And I LOVVVVE sourdough.
- Yogurt cake! I must admit, I raised my eyebrows when I heard this. Yogurt cake, really? But, hey, I’m in! If it’ll make it on time, I’d like to get one for my eldest daughter’s 13th birthday.
Note that these two gems are not yet available as of now, but be sure to check back regularly, as they will be available for your joyful consumption real soon!

The same afternoon The White Hat opened, I was also privileged to witness the opening of Bettina boutique. (Wanna know something cool? The opening day also marks 21 years of making Cagayanon women look darn good! Amazing, no? Two decades of style!)
The boutique held a fashion show to celebrate, showcasing attractive models wearing even more attractive clothing. I took a few snapshots of the event as well, and here they are:
Bettina is one of my wife’s favorite places to shop, and she wasted no time doing so by claiming the black dress on the storefront’s mannequin as soon as it was available for sale. I bet she made the store’s first purchase. Go wifey!
So, mall-goers at Centrio have two reasons to get excited as of late: healthy snacking in The White Hat and great shopping in Bettina boutique. Please do visit; I sure will (C’mon sourdough waffles, come to papa!).
