Jellybeans in the City included in’s List of Top 50 Filipino Food Blogs

I started this blog three years ago as an outlet for my writing and as a venue to share my tips and opinions about my favorite things: food, books, movies and TV shows.  Blogging was just one of my hobbies as I was holding down a full-time job and managing my responsibilities as a wife and mother.

For the longest time, I didn’t give much thought about what I wrote here. I felt that as soon as I hit the “Publish” button, my words are just floating out there in the ether.  I do post about food establishments to help people like me discover their new favorite places and I post recipes as a way for me to remember them (I lost several recipe books during the Ondoy floods). From time to time, I would get notified of likes and follows (much appreciated, by the way!), but I know that my audience is a small and select group.

Last Friday, I discovered that this humble blog is included in’s Top 50 Filipino Food Blogs.


What an honor for my blog to be featured in the same list as and Panlasang Pinoy which I visit for recipe ideas. is an RSS (Rich Site Summary) reader that aggregates content from your your favorite sites in one place so you can keep up with all your information sources without having to visit each website one at a time.  It also extends the reach of bloggers such as myself by promoting the site to its user base.

Recognitions like this is a great ego boost and an affirmation of my place in blogosphere.

Thanks for including me in the list,, and thanks for your support to bloggers like me!
