Cater to your sweet tooth with these Easy, Microwavable Desserts


As Filipinos, most of us are born with a hefty palate. Food is a big part of our culture, and we all know how to appreciate a good feast. However, not all of us are blessed with the skill to be masters in the kitchen. The result? We often resort to buying takeout meals or ordering from trusty fast food chains.

Still, nothing beats homemade food, especially when it comes to desserts. The problem is that when we think of sweets, we always have this misconception that we need to slave hours in front of an oven just to make them.

But did you know that anyone can easily whip their own batch of sweets with just a bit of ingenuity and creativity?  And no, you don’t even need to have an oven to make your own comfort food. Check out the desserts below and impress your loved ones with these easy to make recipes for times when your hunger pangs call for something fast and sweet.

Here’s a merienda both kids and adults will love: for your very own French toast, whisk milk, egg, vanilla, and cinammon together in a bowl and soak slices of bread in the mixture. Using a microwavable plate, heat the slices on high setting for one minute. Garnish it with syrup for extra flair.

Need a quick and healthy dessert minus the elaborate prep? Do your own Sabang Saging in a minute with your microwave oven. Take two raw bananas and prick them with a fork before washing and wrapping them with paper napkins. Pop them in the microwave and cook for a minute or until the sides turn soft.

Midea’s microwave oven can help you create these desserts minus the hassle of a long cooking time. Designed to promote healthy cooking, it retains nutrients in food and lets you cook in seconds.

Worried that you might rack up on electricity bills while whipping up your own sweets? The microwave has the piso meal guarantee, which means you pay a peso for every three minutes of cooking. It’s the perfect addition to your kitchen especially when cravings are high but time is limited.

RGC Group more than ready for CARS Program and PUV Modernization


At the First Philippine Auto Parts Expo, which was recently held at the Philippine Trade Training Center, local automotive parts manufacturers gathered to showcase their products and capabilities to boost the production in their industry. Several modernized jeepney prototypes were also featured in the event, which made manufacturers more enthusiastic about the future of their business. With the government’s Comprehensive Automotive Resurgence Strategy (CARS) Program and PUV Modernization on its way, the automotive parts manufacturing industry in the Philippines is expected to gain more traction in its production in the years to come.


The Robert G. Cheng (RGC) Group of Companies, the company behind Roberts Automotive and Industrial Parts Manufacturing Corporation (Robert AIPMC) and the country’s leading foam manufacturer, Uratex, was one of the exhibitors for the event. “Presently we are already supplying parts for Mitsubishi and Toyota, and now with the Modernization Program, we can see that we could provide more for the automotive industry”, RGC Group Executive Vice President, Mr. Eddie Gallor expressed his excitement. “We are also glad that we now have the help of the government in boosting our local manufacturing industry.”

On top of that, RGC Group will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary next year and Mr. Eddie Gallor has been with the company since day one. “We expect to be get very busy once these programs are on full effect, and that is another thing to celebrate next year”, Gallor said. “We have worked hard these past decades in keeping up with the times by continuously investing on technologies that improve the quality of our products. This gave us the accreditation for the CARS Program and the capacity to do more. We are still operating only at a fraction of the utilization of our investments, and we expect that in the years to come, we could run at our full potential.”

“We also target to develop further our textile company, so that we could add more parts that are supplied locally,” Gallor adds. He explained that the demand for cars has been there, but most units come from overseas. “If automotive production is done here with parts supplied by local manufacturers, it will be a great boost for the manufacturing industry, which is also good for the economy,” Gallor explains. “This also means that we could provide more job opportunities for more Filipinos.”

“If the CARS and PUV Modernization Programs continues to progress as the years pass, we are more than ready to meet the demands”, Gallor emphasizes. “I have been in the industry for more than 40 years and we have been prepared many years back. We are ready to be more productive when needed. With all the new equipment and technologies we have invested on these past years, I am sure that we can do so much more.”
