YES, IT'S HERE! MCDONALD'S: MC LAND SEA AND AIR!!


      I had heard the rumblings on the web for quite some time now of McDonald's coming up with a burger so epic, it's going to make their Big Mac look like something  from "Buena Bonita Burgers". And just how I couldn't wait to share the news of the McRib and the McGriddles coming to the Philippines, I am proud to announce that indeed, the rumors are true. 

    McDonald's has taken three popular burgers in their menu, and creating one ultimate MEGA burger..

    BEHOLD, Mcdonald's newest burger, The Mc Land, Sea and Air is now available in the Philippines!!!

A FLURRY OF CURRY COMBINATIONS AT COCO ICHIBANYA CURRY HOUSE!


         If there's a craze that I am all for hitting the country. It's the Curry Craze. I think we have enough Ramen places in the country. There are more than enough Milk Tea joints, and don't get me started on Coffee Houses. What I would like to see more of right now, is places that specialize in the delicious art of cooking Curry. 

     Off the top of my head, I can think of only two places that is dedicated to making curry.. One is Izumi Curry at Podium, which I visited during my lunch break so I wasn't able to take decent enough pictures for my blog, and the other is Eri Curry, where I was blown away with the customizable dishes, which could lead to numerous meal combinations. 

     Now, Coco Ichibanya, the world's biggest name in Curry is poised to take the Philippines by storm.

TORCH: SETTING GREENBELT 5 ON FIRE!


     Torch is a restaurant that I've been wanting to go to for quite some time, but never got around to going. Rina constantly raves about it, but we never got to visit. In fact, she still has a Torch Gift Certificate from her visit at the San Juan Branch from two years ago kept in our little tin can of GCs.

   The Torch Restaurant brand has emerged as a legitimate player in the local chain restaurant scene, and now has a total of four branches - San Juan, Trinoma, UP Town Center and now, Greenbelt 5 around the metro. I was invited to finally get a taste of the Torch experience for myself, and try 8 of their new entrees!

VIKINGS LUXURY BUFFET AT SM JAZZ: A PICKIEST EATER VLOG


          Rina and I, together with some of my blogger friends, were invited to visit the branch of Vikings Luxury Buffet at SM Jazz at the start of 2015. Unfortunately, we've been so busy that my friends and I couldn't seem to work out a common schedule until March! 

      After a few steps into the stunning Dining Area of Vikings SM Jazz, it was clear that this was going to be worth the wait. 

     The funny part was that, since this was going to be my third visit to Vikings, I kept pondering what I can do to make sure that the blog entry wouldn't seem redundant. 

    So I decided to create a VLOG on my experience of Vikings SM Jazz.. And what's nice is that I was accompanied by my niece Cara, who blogs at Crave The World! 

   The video "Webisodes" is something I plan on doing more of in the future! 

    Hope you guys enjoy :)

BREAKFAST AT CHRISTINA'S.. BY THE BEACH With Transitions® Signature™ Adaptive Lenses!

Christinas Boracay

        This year, our family got the chance to travel again to Boracay! I know a lot of people may feel that Boracay is already too commercialized. Which may be true, but they still have the best white, powdery sand I’ve ever felt and seen. And it’s because of this that we still enjoy going back.

        This summer, we stayed in the beautiful Henann Lagoon  And it is during this time that we realized how large the Boracay Regency properties are in Boracay. Large and beautiful! This includes Henann Lagoon, Henann Gardens, Boracay Regency, Sea Breeze Cafe, and this small little but lovely restaurant where we had a delicious breakfast... Christina’s.

THE DAWN OF DONS: YABU'S MASTER CLASS CREATIONS

(2015 version)

      I will forever be a fan of Yabu. Any restaurant that puts my picture near their toilet will always hold a special place in my heart. What I like about Yabu is how they never feel they should rest on the laurels of their success. Their kitchen is always coming up with new dishes that keeps their menu fresh, leaving their customers curious with what they might come up with next. 

     As the first quarter 2015 comes to a close, Yabu has unleashed two items that belong in their all new Premium line, that they have dubbed their "Master Class Creations". 

    Behold, the Dawn of the Dons is upon us. 

    And it is awesome :)

THE ALL NEW SEA BREEZE CAFE AT BORACAY (AND A STOPOVER AT WAVE)


During my first trip to Boracay nearly five years ago, our very first stop was at Sea Breeze Cafe at Boracay Regency Hotel, where I discovered the altar of bacon. Rina and I ate so much that we blame that breakfast for wasting our first day in the beautiful island, because we were so stuffed, as soon as we got to the room (At 10 am.. we were allowed an early check in), we ended up oversleeping, only to wake up by 2pm!  

        During our most recent return to Boracay where we stayed at Henann Lagoon resort, one of the highlights of the itinerary was our meals at the newly renovated Sea Breeze Cafe!

MOUTH-WATERING COOKIES FROM COOKIES UNLIMITED ~RinaZ


cookies unlimited


        Have you ever heard of lace cookies? A few years back, (this was back in Cebu during one of my first leisure trips there with Richie) when I first heard of that term, I literally thought of a lace. How will it look like?  Apparently they made the cookie per se so incredibly thin, so thin that it looked like the cookie batter was just brushed on the baking tin. That thin. And for it to hold longer, there's a slather of some spread (usually chocolate) in the middle just to hold 2 thin lace crisp cookies together. 

        It's really a different take on cookies. And I'm glad that there's already a maker of lace cookies here in Manila! (That I know of...)

Meet Cookies Unlimited!!!

THE BEAUTY OF BORACAY CAPTURED IN HENANN LAGOON RESORT


"Pa-humble effect"

         I have to admit, I got into the Boracay game really late. It wasn't until late 2010 that I made my first trip to the Philippines popular party island. It was more than a year since our second trip to Boracay, but our first with Rain, and we were looking forward to making plans for the summer. 

    Thankfully, the plans were made for us, when Henann Lagoon Resort graciously invited us to visit their stunning home in Boracay! 

    Ain't nobody gonna say no to that!

SIMPLY SEAFOOD: A FRESH OCEAN HARVEST BUFFET AT MARRIOTT MANILA





Seafood...

Buffet...

        The two words that got me excited as a kid waiting for Disneyland to open. Disclaimer, I can't say I'm a really huge fan of seafood. There are some things that I don't eat. But I do like tahong, osyters, and shrimps! Ooooh shrimps! And salmon! So when I heard that Marriott Manila was going to have a whole buffet spread highlighting fresh seafood, I knew I had to try it! 

Let's walk through this seafood wonderland, shall we?  Presenting, the Marriott Manila's Ocean Harvest Seafood Buffet!
