Boracay, Lovelier the Second Time Around

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…

Going Loco over Locavore

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.

We bade farewell to the province of Pampanga and headed to Nueva Ecija for the remaining half of our journey. It was more familiar ground because Nueva Ecija is my…
