    Explore Baguio on a Motorbike with 175 Php Budget

    Dubbed as the Summer Capital of the Philippines due to its cool mountain weather, Baguio surely has a lot of amazing things to offer. Pine trees were found in every corner of the city lending it the nickname “City of Pines”. There’s no shortage of parks and restaurants where people could spend quality time with their family and barkada. Bunch after bunch of fresh strawberries are found everywhere in the market. True enough, it’s too beautiful that staying here for a day wouldn’t be enough. We had a family vacation in Baguio way back 2004. And now after 15 years, I’m finally back! But this time not for a vacation.…

    JoyBus Premier Class Experience + How To Book Online

    Travel time to Baguio usually takes 7-8 butt-numbing hours from Manila. Thanks to JoyBus, we can now reach Baguio within 4-5 hours! This is because stop-overs won’t be needed anymore as each bus unit has a comfort room on board and snacks and drinking water were provided for free. In our case, travel time only took about less than 4 hours (from Cubao) as our schedule was very early in the morning (2:30AM). What I Liked Aside from having a comfort room and free snacks and drinking water, blankets were also provided for added comfort as it could really get cold at the bus. The blankets are thick enough and…

    ChizMozza | Satisfy Your Mozzarella Cheese Cravings

    Aside from its witty and catchy name (as it sounds like chismosa which is a filipino/spanish word for someone who loves to gossip), what really caught my attention is their product itself. People often associate mozzarella cheese with pizza and pasta dishes. Not many people would think about shaping it into bite-size and sticks, cover it with crunchy coating, and sell it as their main snack product. The name ChizMozza actually came from Mozzarella Cheese. Not so hard to figure out, right? Mozzarella Bites and Mozzarella Sticks According to the staff, their best sellers are the Mozzarella Bites and Mozzarella Sticks. This snack is crunchy on the outside, cheesy and…

    Pan de Amerikana | Upside Down Restaurant in Katipunan Ave

    I’ve been considering this restaurant ever since I discovered it from a friend way back when I was still working in Libis, Quezon City (that’s 2 years ago). It’s just few kilometers away from my workplace (Calle Industria), but let’s not dig deeper as to why it never transpired because I myself can’t explain either. 😅 Now that I’m not based in QC anymore that the plan finally took place (what an irony). It’s when I was scheduled to get my separation pay from my previous company and we had to look for an interesting place to eat lunch nearby after the appointment. So the age-old idea of hitting up…

    Bill’s Bear Café in Ermita, Manila

    We were in Manila for a business meeting when we found a restaurant worth hitting up. Bill’s Bear Cafe was easily spotted inside Robinsons Place, Ermita. We actually dined here twice already. The first happened during merienda when we tried their Crispy Quadro Pizza, Yakult Green Tea, and Bill’s Bear Milk Tea. It was so good that we agreed to come back but this time during lunch. I ordered one of their new dishes — Chicken & Shrimp Cream Pasta, while Jeric tried one of the best sellers — Salmon in Lemon Caper Cream Sauce. Drinks were Bill’s Bear Milk Tea (again) and Oreo Milk Tea. Dessert was King Mango…

    Isla Frontera de Pacifica Resort | Dingalan’s Next Top Attraction

    I’ve been very busy the past few months until an invitation reminded me that I badly needed a beach break. Sometimes we tend to forget that there’s more to life than just pushing yourself too much for a living. We forget that for our works to be done more efficiently, we need to unwind and take a break. Anything too much is bad. Balance is the key, as they say. But for now, let’s cut the drama and proceed to the actual trip. We were very excited we left home at 2:00 in the morning and arrived roughly 4 hours later. Isla Frontera de Pacifica Resort is about 30 minutes…
