    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…

    Hodai Restaurant | Affordable & Delicious Unli Japanese-Korean Cuisine

    We’ve recently discovered a newly opened restaurant that offers unlimited mouthwatering Japanese-Korean fusion dishes for as low as 299 php. Such a bargain! Since Hodai Restaurant was just opened last April, the owners are currently more focused on making it known to the public by offering their high quality dishes at an unbelievably low price! Food & Price The 299 php is actually a promotional price for SILVER SET which has a regular price of 499 php, so you get to save 200 php! They also offer their GOLD SET for 359 php instead of 599, so you’d save 240 php! That’s a steal! Promo runs until May 31, 2019…

    Fantastic Chef | A FUNtastic Unli Korean BBQ Experience

    We’re not really a fan of Kpop but we definitely love Samgyeopsal because who doesn’t? It came to a point that we tried making our own samgyeopsal at home so we could enjoy it everytime we crave for it. But perspectives changed one day when we tried dining at this famed Korean Restaurant in Malate: Fantastic Chef. The quality of their food is no match with ours. It’s too unique and delicious that we cannot use our reverse engineering skills! Food Fantastic Chef offers 10 types of meat (Pork & Chicken) for P499 per person. You can add P50 if you also want beef. Skirt meat Rack Jowls meat Seasoned…

    Calaguas Travel Guide + Itinerary and Budget

    When we hear Calaguas, what instantly comes to our mind is a long stretch of pristine beach with only few cottages that serve as temporary home for the city dwellers seeking to be away from everything. That’s how we see it, at least for us, considering that we were one of the first people who beheld its untouched beauty even before it rose to fame big time. As a matter of fact, on our first visit we had the whole beach all to ourselves as if we rented it for a couple of days, that was 2014. Over the years, many things has changed. It’s not just about few cottages…

    I Love Calaguas Island Resort | A Charming Retreat at the Heart of Mahabang Buhangin Beach

    Calaguas is basically known as a beach camping haven with pristine waters and looong stretch of white sand beach. It is one of the top-pick destinations for city dwellers, or even locals who wish to have a break from the daily routine. People usually set up their tents and spend a night or two in the island to fully experience how it’s like to be away from everything. Today, camping in tents is no longer the only option as many island resorts have popped up one by one over the years. The once bare and empty beach is now dotted with resorts offering services and accommodations. But there’s one resort…

    We ate from a toilet bowl at the Modern Toilet Restaurant

    As I’ve mentioned in my previous post about our day 3 in Taiwan, we went to Ximending and had our dinner at Modern Toilet Restaurant which I believe deserves a separate post. And yes, you’ve read the title of this post correctly (you don’t need an eye check-up!), as we literally ate from a pot fashioned like a toilet bowl. Interiors But before I tour you inside, let me first show you the entrance of the restaurant. You will automatically think this is the Modern Toilet Restaurant you’ve been hearing about even before you see the store name! Now, let’s go upstairs and see what the buzz was all about.…

    Coralview Beach Resort | A Relaxing Getaway in Morong, Bataan

    I’m pretty sure most of us (if not all) already came to a point wherein all we want to do is to just relax. Doing something over and over again for a long time makes us feel worn out and the best solution we have is to pause for a while and do something different from the daily routine. Because sometimes, the most productive and fruitful thing to do is to rest. Last week, we went to Morong, Bataan to have that much deserved vacation. We’ve been constantly operating and managing our business so we thought what we badly needed is a break from what we’re doing for at least…
