Love at Home : Samsung Air Conditioner

Designed to be outstandingly efficient, its uniquely triangular design has a wider inlet, wider outlet and a bigger fan to ensure that air is cooled and expelled faster (26%), farther (14m meters) and wider (39%) – ensuring even air distribution and powerful cooling.

The new Samsung Air Conditioner features Samsung’s exclusive Virus Doctor that keeps families safe and comfortable through innovative air purifying technology, which neutralizes harmful contaminants in the air. The Virus Doctor feature has received various accolades including a 2010 AHR Expo Innovation Award in the indoor air-quality category, a 1st Air Day Minister of the Environmental Award, and the Jang Young Sil Award. Now, mothers need not worry about air-born viruses and allergens with Samsung’s Virus Doctor technology.

Energy efficiency is a key purchasing decision for consumers. The Samsung Air Conditioner’s Single User mode gives the flexibility to the user to control the capacity by effective use of energy. It uses less compressor capacity, reducing power consumption, while still providing a cool and comfortable environment. This ensures that users won’t have to worry about the electricity bill even if there’s only one person in the room.

Love at Home : Samsung Front Load Washing Machine

Another addition to their lineup of smart appliances is the Front Load Washing Machine. Doing the laundry is an arduous and time-consuming task. There are many things to consider when it comes to washing fabric, but Samsung’s newest Front Load Washing Machine makes cleaning clothes a breeze. It makes use of Samsung’s own Eco Bubble Technology that allows powerful cleaning in cold water. Using warm water is an extra step when it comes to doing the laundry, and it can also be damaging to some fabrics. But the Eco Bubble allows for easy cleaning by completely dissolving detergent even with cold water producing fine foam that easily penetrates the fabric for both effective and gentle, cutting the time, effort, and energy needed in doing this task.

This pre-programmed cycle was designed to deal with the 12 most common types of stains: blood, cocoa, sebum, oatmeal, tea, wine, tomato, pencil lead, mud, makeup, lipstick, and grass. It does all this with less noise, less vibration, and more performance than an ordinary washing machine. And of course, it is outfitted with the Digital Inverter Technology, guaranteeing efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

‘Tex-Mex’cellence - The Talk Of The Tavern


A mix of authentic Mexican and Spanish dishes prepared Texas-style, Tex-Mex cuisine has found its way to the tables of Village Tavern, prepared by award-winning Bistro Corporate Chef, Josh Boutwood. And they’re excellent.

Tex-Mex is a well-loved fusion of Texan, Mexican, Southwestern and Spanish dishes considered as American regional cuisine from the 1800s.

“And since Village Tavern traditionally serves American comfort food, expect to indulge in big bold flavors as we launch our new and exciting Tex-Mex dishes,” Chef Josh Boutwood said.

Crossing the border with cheesier, chili-er and meatier choices are Chef Josh’s latest 9 creations for Village Tavern. Folded in half but a whole lot of flavor, Village Tavern’s take on the classic quesadilla has brisket and ox tongue. The Ox Tongue Tacos boasts of braised ox tongue smothered with a rich combination of zesty chipotle pepper sauce to complete the lip-smacking picture. The Brisket Quesadilla, on the other hand, puts together succulent slivers of beef spiced with cumin and coriander for that beefed up quesadilla goodness.

And holy guacamole! What’s all these quesadillas without a dip or topping? Village Tavern’s Hand Hacked Guacamole is the best thing that has ever happened to fresh chunky avocados seasoned with spices and lime and served with corn tortilla chips.

Village Tavern’s Spiced Rubbed US Prime Flank Steak is premium US flank steak rubbed in fresh herbs and spices, grilled to perfection just the way you want it and served with poblano crema, green rice and corn succotash to bring added flavor.

“If you love spicy, flavorful dishes, you'll love the variety of the new Tex-Mex entrees Village Tavern offers,” Chef Josh enthused. “It’s perfect for a sit-down dinner with the family or a light lunch with friends as you delight in other Village Tavern bestsellers.”

Over the years, Tex-Mex cuisine has undoubtedly evolved in more ways than one can imagine. Varying interpretations of this cuisine has taken you far south of the border or sometimes, way up North, depending on the chef’s style and rendering. Chef Josh Boutwood’s excellent Tex-Mex creations for Village Tavern gives you delicious options for classic American comfort food that takes you right back home.
