The cheat’s 15-minute “Japanese” meal

Japanese cuisine is one of my favourites in the world. If I lived next door to an Omakase or even Sakura you would probably see me in there every other day! Luckily Manila does have its fair share of great Japanese restaurants. But as much as it would be great to eat out that often, …

Continuing from part I of my recent Japanese eats round-up, I hope you all are ready for more mouth-watering dishes! One of the most recent trends to hit Metro Manila lately is the ramen craze. Ramen places have been popping up like daisies, and yet there is always a loooong line of people waiting to …

Aside from the fact that I haven’t baked in two weeks (!!!), I’m too tired to check on my backlogs and write a recipe post, so I decided to just write a ‘What I’ve Been Eating Lately’ post. I noticed a little pattern with the restaurants we’ve been eating in lately; a pattern that I …

I’ve been wanting some time off lately because life has secretly been driving me crazy, so when my family told me they were planning to go up to Tagaytay over the weekend, I decided to come along. No Internet, nothing to remind me about work… Something about being away from the city relaxes the soul …

Last Sunday my family and I headed out for an early morning “obstacle course” run after about 6 months without any running training. Baaaad idea. I used to run 10k on a regular basis but stopped when I got too lazy to get up in the mornings. Hihi. Now I do TRX thrice a week …

Dimsum overload at Hyatt Manila’s Li Li Restaurant + a special treat for readers

The Hyatt Hotel is one of Manila’s grandest and for me one of the more accessible five-star hotels in the metro. I live maybe 20 minutes away, and after this luncheon I had, I began wondering why we didn’t visit the restaurants here a little more. I was invited to an intimate lunch at Li …

A little busy this week so I didn’t have time to edit photos for a post, but rest assured a yummy one is coming up on the blog in the next day or so. So instead, I thought I’d do a W.I.B.E.L. post featuring my favourites from the meals I’ve had recently. 🙂 I attended …

{Zamboanga 2013} Cruising to Sta. Cruz paradise

The moon was still out when we awoke the next day. The resort was practically deserted and I took the chance to snap this quick panorama. There was nothing but stillness and silence as far as the eyes could see and the ears could hear, but there was a thick energy in the air. It …
