Migs Bustos continues his foodtrip adventure—this time along the streets of Quezon City, where he finally tries the trending “Hiwaga” overload pares made famous by Sixteen “Hiwaga” Ablero this Saturday (May 18) on “My Puhunan: Kaya Mo!”

With the overload pares trend taking over the local gastronomic scene and social media, Hiwaga made his twist to the beloved meal while keeping portions massive with its two-meat pares alongside unlimited servings of rice, soup, and drinks for just P99.

He then shares his humble beginnings of setting up his humble pares eatery until it became a hit among patrons. Upon the success of his overload pares venture, he finally opened a more spacious spot to cater to more of his beloved customers wanting a hot bowl of pares, along with other meals such as Hiwaga’s equally famous overload bulalo, among others.For those looking for a cozy staycation place to spend during the ongoing warm season, Migs has you covered as he heads to Pulilan, Bulacan to showcase the beauty of Balai Alegria. He then meets its owner, Clara “Gie” Alegria, who shares how she took inspiration from social media in designing Balai Alegria to where it is today.Meanwhile, a brewing success story awaits as Karen Davila features the inspiring journey of RJ “Coco” Evangelista, who first dreamed big by becoming an OFW until he established his very own coffee brand, Radiantz. Coco, hailing from Davao, once sought bigger work opportunities by moving to Manila, eventually abroad as an all-around staff in Singapore. His success started to brew when he realized his knack for making delicious coffee, which started from simply mixing coffee for his employer and eventually liking his blend.

He then decided to study and improve on his coffee recipe, along with making other products—until he returned to the Philippines for good upon learning of his mother’s illness. From there, he decided to establish his coffee brand, where he finally managed to mass-produce his blend of coffee and manufacture other beauty and wellness goods.
