Media Noche-Ready with PayMaya

Things still get crazy at the House of Cala-ors with New Year’s eve coming. To be honest, I still have no idea what to prepare!

And because I don’t plan on spending the day slaving away in the kitchen like I did this Christmas, I’ve considered just ordering in for our NYE spread.  I want to treat the family to some of my favorite picks from my favorite restaurants and sit pretty as I wait for the 2021!

If, like me, you’re also considering to order in for your NYE celebration, you might want to consider this menu which includes traditional food items like pansit, to more adventurous options like aburi. Enjoy!

1. Sisig at Manam - I have never met anyone that didn’t enjoy Manam’s sisig. And since I want New Year’s celebration to be exciting, I feel this is the best pick as viand. Kanin na lang kulang.

2. Crispy Pancit Palabok - New Year’s Eve is like celebrating a birthday as we give way to a new year. So keeping with the tradition of serving something long like Pancit or Spaghetti is a must. Crispy Pancit Palabok is one of my favorites from Manam and we’re sure to have crispy dripping saucy dreams about this meal even after New Year. LOL!

3. Ebi and Soft Shell Crab Tempura Aburi Bake - Ooma seems the ideal place to get something new to try and let the family’s taste buds go on a rollercoaster. Sushi is all the rage and this looks to be rich and tasty and ultra-fulling. What a way to usher in 2021 right?

4. Gyudon at Ooma - On the other hand, I’ve been missing the take of Ooma on their Gyudon! The beef strips are so tender, the creamy egg sauce is just like a warm hug. And with how cold the weather is, this seems perfect for the family.

5. Xiao Long Bao - And I probably am set on ordering this from Din Tai Fung. Perfect for adding more perfectly round food on the table to bring in luck for New Year! 

Apart from being crowd-favorites, these meals are also quite easy to order. With just a few clicks, I can have all these delivered straight to my doorstep. I can even pay for this using only my PayMaya mobile number. 

To order, I simply have to go to the website for these restaurants, add items to my cart, and proceed to checkout. At the checkout page, I only need to choose Pay with PayMaya and key in my PayMaya mobile number and account password. That’s it – no need to key in those long credit card numbers or worse, pay cash on delivery. 

Even better, I can get my favorite meals and enjoy 1%, 10%, and even 100% cashback of up to P500 when I pay using my PayMaya mobile number! If you’re interested to try this mode of payment, you can also do this at the websites of 8cuts, Frankies, Boozy, or even when you order via FB messenger at Jollibee, Greenwhich, Mang Inasal, Red Ribbon, and many more!

And of course, paying using your mobile number is just one of the many ways you can earn raffle entries at the PayMayaguinaldo raffle promo where you can get a chance to win P1,000,000 at the grand draw in January 2021!

If you still don’t have a PayMaya account, now is the best time to register an account, and enjoy the convenience and rewards of going cashless – especially for your family gatherings. You can download the app now using this link
