A SOUTHERN STAYCATION AT SOMERSET ALABANG


        I'm always excited when I get a chance to visit the South, especially Alabang, If only traffic permitted, I'm pretty sure I'd be there more often, checking out the amazing restaurants and hotels in the area. I've been to a few hotels in Alabang, and I've always left impressed with the state of the art facilities, luxurious accommodations and world class service.  

     I was ecstatic when my family and I got opportunity to stay at one of the newest names in serviced apartments down South, Somerset Alabang Manila.

FATBURGER FINALLY OPENS IN GLORIETTA 2!


           The year was 1997, and the place was Las Vegas. My brother and I chipped in part of our vacation money to take our dad out on a limo ride around the City of Lights for his birthday. My Godmother was a travel agent so we got a great deal on our limo ride, but since we had splurged on the wheels, it meant dinner would have to be sacrificed. 

           Our Limo Driver picked us up at the MGM Grand promptly at 6:45pm, and I noticed my dad, despite being in an incredibly luxurious limo, seemed a tad crabby. My dad is notorious for getting grumpy when his tummy grumbles so it clicked to my brother that if he was going to fully enjoy this limo ride, he would need to get some food in his stomach. 

        I told my Ninang about the situation, so she casually asked the Limo driver where was a quick but delicious place to grab something to eat before we went on our tour around Las Vegas (we weren't allowed to eat inside the car). The driver suggested his favorite burger spot which was conveniently located three minutes away, just along the Las Vegas Strip. And he even told my aunt that since he hadn't had dinner yet, if we bought him a burger, he'd only start the time AFTER we all had eaten.. A concession he was willing to make ONLY for a restaurant called, Fatburger. 

      That told me that this must be one awesome burger. After one bite of a Double Fatburger with Bacon and Egg, I just had to give that Limo Driver a high five. 

    19 years later, Fatburger, has become one of the emerging burger chains in the global scene, and has now finally opened a branch in Manila!

AIR ASIA TELLS THE SUNNY SONNY STORY: #TravelGr8 Vacation Essentials!


             Air Asia has quickly emerged as Asia's leading name in budget airline travel. In the past couple of years that I've been traveling with Air Asia, one thing I've noticed with this airline is that they always find a way to go one step beyond their offered services to their passengers. For example, it wasn't enough for Air Asia to provide meals for their passengers, but they went the extra mile to develop a menu that ensures the food they serve are absolutely delicious.


        Their in-flight shopping catalog is no different. Not only are they constantly adding products that is useful to the traveler, but they recently added a product to their lineup that is meaningful not just to their passengers, but to the less fortunate as well. 

        Allow me to tell you all about Air Asia's new #TravelGr8 Vacation Essentials In Flight Catalog!

IT'S A G'DAY FOR GREAT AUSSIE EATS AT OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE!


           I've never been to Australia, but the laid back vibe I get from Outback Steakhouse, where you're encouraged to kick back and relax over some awesome food, makes me feel like this is one country that I would love to visit (Ok fine, the hot babes has something to do with it as well).

           Recently, Outback Steakhouse Philippines launched a limited time offerings menu dubbed "The Great Aussie Eats", and it's nothing short of awesome!

RAIN'S BIRTHDAY PART 3: SUNDAE FUN DAY AT MORELLI'S!


             The day after Rain's birthday, Rina and I decided to continue her simple celebration by taking her out for Ice Cream at one of her favorite Gelato places, Morelli's Gelato Caffe at Shangrila Plaza Mall. Though we usually pass by for a scoop whenever we're at the mall, this is the first time I realized that Morelli's also has some incredible Sundaes as well!

RAIN'S BIRTHDAY PART 2: LUNCH AT FAB, THE RESTAURANT!


          On the day of Rain's birthday, Rina and I picked up our little princess after school, and headed straight to Holiday Inn Galleria Manila for a delicious family lunch. Rain had a long standing invitation from our friends at Holiday Inn to try their food there, so we thought this would be the perfect time to visit.

       In case you think you misread that, you didn't. RAIN is the one with an invite, and Rina and I were her "Plus Twos".

RAIN'S BIRTHDAY PART 1: A FAIRMONT MAKATI STAYCATION


          I've been to Fairmont Hotel's Spectrum quite a number of times in the past, and I can safely say it's one of the best hotel buffets in Metro Manila. They constantly think of themes to keep their guests on their toes, and the kitchen staff  from the entrees to the pastries, always rise to the challenge in coming up with ideas to match the selected motif. 

      Though I consider myself I fan of the hotel's food and service, I had yet to see their accommodations, Of course, this is the prestigious Fairmont name we were talking about, so I had a pretty good idea that it was nothing short of amazing, but it's really different when you see it for yourself. 

      So the weekend before Rain's Birthday. we were invited to experience a Staycation at Fairmont Hotel, which was perfect treat for my little girl in anticipation for her big day!

GRIND BISTRO: YOUR DAILY GRIND AT BGC!


The Big Burger and The Little Burger

        I've always been more of a "No Frills" kind of guy when it comes to food. I don't need fancy plating or overly expensive ingredients to make me happy. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy some of the finer things every now and then, but it's honestly more on the simple comfort food that gets my tummy going. 

       What I enjoyed about Grind Bistro, was how it took classic pub favorites, given dynamic twists, without going all frou frou. It was classic, comfort food, executed with finesse and precision. 

          Exactly the kind of restaurant that I would love going back to again and again.
