For the past four years, it has become a tradition for us to celebrate special family occasions at Circles Event Cafe in Makati Shangri-La. This restaurant has witnessed a number […]
While the Kapitolyo and Ortigas districts in Pasig are popular food havens, seldom would we dare go there because of the notoriously heavy traffic in the area. However, when we […]
Our trip to Boracay some months ago was a very spur-of-the-moment decision. While we would always have travel plans for my birthday, we didn’t make any arrangement that time because […]
One of the hotels in Makati that we have frequently been to is Holiday Inn. It’s not as grand as the older hotels in the vicinity but it holds its […]
One does not exactly go to a chaotic place like Tutuban and expect to uncover a piece of history. People go there primarily to shop for budget finds. But an […]
Trust food-hunting with friends on a Friday evening to bring you to unexpected places. Thus, notwithstanding the heavy traffic in C5 and Kapitolyo, our search for decent dinner brought us to the latest talk of the town that is Locavore.
