Our Approach and Story
We are Bernice and Paula your friendly Fat Girls. We’re passionate about food, travel, and culture. Well mostly about food! We eat our way around the urban jungles of Manila, Southeast Asia and the rest of the world. We have a 9-5 day job, Monday-Friday and to break the cycle of this routine environment we do all sorts of things, eat all sorts of things and see all sorts of things during our Day Out may it be after work or during weekends. Our contents are diverse in nature, intellectually arresting and fair in nature.
We’ll show you what to do, where to eat, where to go and what to see We are purveyors of life! We write about good and memorable experiences may it be thru food, travel, art, and culture.
How We Create Our Contents
First and foremost we think about our audience first and produce topics, digital copies, and other related media that are unique and can address the discerning needs of the niche target readers that we engage with. We try to be different in terms of execution and messaging so we’d be able to break away from all the internet noise.
Our contents are diverse in topic, experience-centric, and contractually fair in this digital and socially aware age.
Our mission is to provide unbiased reviews, raw, honest and sensible recommendations for our readers. We will not compromise our judgment based on paid ads or placements as compared with other websites.
Paula Mariz Ferrer
Co-Founder/ Marketing & Branding/ Content Direction
If you happen to read about FGDO’s stories about coffee, sub-culture art, tattoo, 90’s rock bands, and often times Pyshocology-driven materials–Well, that is everything who Paula is. Her weirdness and quirkiness do make her an out of the box storyteller. When she’s not running around Ayala Avenue as a Corporate Manager for Marketing Ops, you can see her during weekends hosting coffee crawls around Metro Manila. Browse thru her photographs and architected neighborhood guides as she shares her experiences to you.
Bernice “Bianca” Termulo
Co-Founder/Chief Technical Manager/ Content Creator
Bernice is an Events and Marketing Professional. Her corporate events are marked by her commitment to excellence. Bernice’s love affair with food started at a young age, fueled by her family’s love to eat. She is fascinated by unique spices as well as the possibilities created by limitless variations and combinations of flavors. What makes her passion for food so strong is the conviction that the significance of food goes beyond the act of eating. With her degree in International Studies, Bernice understands that communing with food is an act of cultural intimacy, a way of knowing that links directly to cultures and traditions, and to people’s histories. This explains her thirst for travel—she can’t get enough of knowledge related to local dishes and to ingredients that are native to the regions of Asia. Among her favorite cuisines are Japanese, Mediterranean and Indian.
As a food and culture blogger, Bernice likes to discuss food in a holistic manner. While knowledgeable in the technical aspects of food criticism, her preferred approach to food is one that explores connections between flavors, practices of food production, the symbolic meaning behind experiences of food consumption, and the place of food in the economics of everyday life.
She would go anywhere and everywhere for food but far, far away from dirty dishes.
