    #TAIWANdering Day 4: Yehliu, Shifen, & Jiufen Day Tour via KKday

    Four months ago, we went to Taiwan and shared our itinerary and budget which you can find here. So yes, this is a super late post as we had to prioritize a few blog invites. 😉 Honestly, I’ve already forgotten about writing this until a news reached me about Taiwan’s confirmation for extending the visa-free privilege for Filipino passport holders until July 2020. Such a great news for everyone! So now here’s our Northeast coast Taiwan tour. Our meet-up schedule was 8:45 in the morning at Taipei Main Station East Gate 1. We availed this tour from KKday since the sites are far from each other, thus, difficult to DIY. The tour…

    Sodam Restaurant | Unli Samgyup + Hotpot + Buffet, for as low as ₱349

    An overwhelming number of Korean restaurants offering unlimited Samgyeopsal have been flooding the food scene nowadays. Come to think of it, all you’re planning to do is just to satisfy your samgy cravings, and the next thing you knew you’re already undergoing the hassle in decision making! Last week, we discovered another Korean BBQ that stood out from the rest: Sodam Restaurant. What made them unique, you ask? Well, they did not limit their menu in Samgyeopsal. But rather, they paired it with Ramen that you can also cook on the spot, plus with buffet! Food Sodam Restaurant serves unlimited pork and beef that are guaranteed fresh and of high quality.…

    Tabehoudai Buffet Restaurant | A bang-for-buck buffet in Pampanga

    Trying to pick among hundreds of restaurants in Pampanga could be very tricky, especially if you’re planning for big group. This certain spot in the north is dubbed as the country’s culinary capital, no wonder why Kapampangans are spoiled with lots of choices when it comes to dining. So when it was time to celebrate Diane’s (Jeric’s lil sis) graduation, we had to look for a restaurant that would please even the pickiest eater in the squad. We did not fail when we found this bang-for-buck restaurant in San Fernando Pampanga: Tabehoudai Buffet Restaurant. Here are 7 reasons why dining here is worth every penny: 1. Very wide variety of food selections The…

    Revisiting Coralview Beach Resort in Morong, Bataan

    About a month ago, I received a call from the owner, Sir Jun, inviting us to come again at Coralview and bring my family as a way of saying thanks for the blog. He even pointed out that we don’t have to work so it’s purely a vacation (no pressure in taking photos and writing a post about it). However, I still want to immortalize our experience hence I’m writing this. 😉 The journey So last June 13, we made our way for another beach trip despite the unfavorable weather. This time, we brought our own wheels so we could reach Morong faster (≈2 hours) from Bulacan, because we didn’t want mom…

    Primera Restobar | Unli Yakiniku, pizza, pasta, wings & more for only 299 Php

    Yakiniku, what’s that? Yes, Yakiniku may not be as popular as Samgyeopsal as the latter went along with the KPop and KDrama trend. But not many people do know that Yakiniku (Japanese) is just as enjoyable as Samgyeopsal (Korean) when it comes to the joy of grilling the meat right in front of you while sniffing its mouthwatering aroma. I’m so thankful we found a restaurant that serves eat-all-you-can Yakiniku. Primera Restobar gave us the experience of eating grilled meat, Japanese style! They even partnered it with pizza, pasta, and wings that you can also eat to your heart’s content! Food & Price I appreciate that their menu caters to…

    Dreamland Arts & Crafts Café | An Artsy Restaurant in Tagaytay

    After exploring Crosswinds Swiss Luxury Resort, it was in time for lunch and my sister suggested a nice place to eat around Tagaytay. Dreamland Arts & Crafts Café actually sounds familiar to me ever since it rose to fame in social media with all those dream catcher photos. I’m just not so interested about dream catchers* so it never really existed in my bucket-list. It was just last week when I discovered that it’s not really all about dream catchers. They serve food and drinks as well while also offering artsy and useful products for sale. What’s more, they also offer board games for everyone to enjoy! Food & Price They…

    Crosswinds Tagaytay | A Family Getaway at the Switzerland of PH

    The scorching summer heat combined with extreme boredom have been causing us to crave for a cool escape. Tagaytay easily popped into mind when discussing about the escape plan as it is just about a 4-hr drive from Bulacan (or 2-3hrs from Manila), and it’s been 2 years already since Jeric and I visited the place when we hiked Taal Volcano. Moreover, it was 5 years ago when we explored the city with the family! Pre-travel Preparations I was browsing through Airbnb listings when I spotted an entire townhouse available for rent at Crosswinds Tagaytay. The house is a Swiss Quadrille unit that can sleep up to 12 people which…
