Where to eat at NAIA 3 Manila airport

I’ll let you in on a secret. Whenever I fly out of NAIA 3 Manila airport, I head there extra early. Like 3 hours early. I’m not kidding! Before, I just make sure I’m at the airport with an hour or so to spare. Now, I’m there really early. I...

LAPIS Para Sa Lumad

I am always in awe of Filipino musicians who continue to write meaningful, socially relevant songs. Songs that some may consider “unpopular” but are the very ones that we all need to hear. Songs about human rights, just wages, land reform, proper governance, freedom of speech. Songs that remind us...

SMB Oktoberfest 2015 launch with Rivermaya and Ebe Dancel

My Laduree French macaron Makati visit

One of my longtime super favorite blogs to read is Chuvaness, run by Cecile Zamora van Straten. I’ve been reading it since its LiveJournal days and as much as I possibly can, I try to visit the restaurants or shops that she recommends. One of her recent entries was about...

Tagging Along With The New Rivermaya

Spent some time with the new Rivermaya during my most recent Manila trip. In case you still can’t tell by now, I am a huge supporter of this premier Filipino rock band, considered to this day as one of the most successful and critically acclaimed bands in the Philippines. I...

At Tim Ho Wan Manila Michelin Star Restaurant

So I’ve finally visited TIM HO WAN Manila! I’ve been seeing a lot of photos of Tim Ho Wan’s Manila restaurants plus their uber popular baked buns with pork BBQ (char siu) filling. At bilang fan na fan ako ng dim sum, I knew I just had to include Tim...

At the Senator Chiz Escudero – Heart Evangelista wedding

I attended the Senator Chiz Escudero and Heart Evangelista wedding a few days ago. I have known Senator Chiz ever since he was still a congressman representing Sorsogon (yep, a very long time) so I was really thrilled to know that I was to witness this special, joyous occasion of...
