I'm always eager to share with my readers about my experience with products that I truly believe in. One of those things that I was anxious to share with you, is my new Lock and Lock Feather Light Tumbler! It's handy, lightweight and so easy to use, it left me wondering how I got around for so long without it!

When I moved to Manila from Cebu for college, I stayed in my grandfather's place in Quezon City for a few years. Our family house in Antipolo hadn't gone through its badly needed renovation, not to mention the daily drive and commute to Taft would have made my college life even more hellish than it was (did I ever mention how much I hate Math?).
The Scout Area dining scene in the late 90's is completely different from the food haven it is now. Although there are some iconic establishments that have survived the test of time, the restaurant choices were rather limited, and don't get me started on Hotels in the area, because a decent one was non-existent.
So if you had told me that nearly 20 years ago I'd be spending a luxurious staycation in a gorgeous Boutique hotel just down the road from my Grandfather's house, I would have told you that you were insane.
But it is true. Meranti Hotel has emerged as an impressive option to stay in when looking for accommodations in Quezon City!

In case ya'll didn't notice, I love me some steak. More than that though, I love me some affordable steaks, Blog posts abour restaurants with quality, affordable steaks are usually among my favorite things to share with my readers. Which is why I was ecstatic to write about Johnny's Steak and Grill, located at the ground floor of the posh B Hotel in Quezon City!

I've never been much of a gambler, but City of Dreams Manila never ceases to amaze me whenever I drop by. Whether it was to dine at Hyatt or take the family to Dream Play, the whole spectacle of the complex always lives up to its name with every visit. I've had the pleasure of dining at The Cafe a few times, but I had yet to even set foot in the Crown Towers. let alone try any of their restaurants.
Fortunately, when Crystal Dragon, Crown Tower's premium Cantonese restaurant, launched their Mid-Autumn Festival Menu, Little old me managed to score an invitation, making my first trip to Crown Towers a memorable one.

Since we live in the same village, Rina and I usually invite my father in law and sister in law over for dinner, so Rain could spend more time with them. One weekend, Rina wanted to break the monotony of our usual fare, and suggested we have a nice family dinner out for a change.
Since Rain was going to be with us, I suggested IHOP, because our little baby/lady may not eat much, but something she does love is pancakes. A little research led us to discover that IHOP has new additions to its menu, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to try us many items as I could!

I think I may have eaten more steak this year than any other time in my life. Not that I'm complaining, as everytime I go to a different steakhouse, there's always something about the place that makes it a whole new experience. I've been to Chops Chicago Steakhouse's Greenbelt Branch a few years back, but I had yet to visit the branch nearer to me, located at the East Wing of Shangri-la Mall.
One fine day, my blogger buddies and I paid a visit to Chops, to find out if their food, particularly their steaks, would do the windy city proud!

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of flying to Penang in Malaysia for the first time, via Air Asia's Fly thru service that allowed me the luxury of only having to check in my baggage once, and not having to worry about it during my layover at Kuala Lumpur. The sights and attractions were phenomenal, and the food, as you'll see in an upcoming post, was nothing short of amazing.
However, another factor that made our stay in Penang even more enjoyable, was our hotel, Sunway Georgetown. Oftentimes, the choice of hotel is often overlooked. More often than not, you select your accomodations based on your budget, since you have the mindset that your hotel won't matter because you'll only be there to sleep anyway.
Sunway Georgetown, is different. I feel that my stay in this outstanding hotel played an integral part of my Penang experience, where I discovered the warmth and genuine accommodating nature of the Malaysian people.
Let me tell you why you should stay in Sunway Georgetown the next time you go to Penang..

I'll be honest with you. I was a little sad when I saw that one of my favorite Chinese restaurants, Lugang, closed down their branch at Connecticut Ave. in San Juan. Sure there are other branches of Lugang conveniently located at malls around the metro, but the size of this branch, coupled with its convenient dedicated parking lot across the street, gave it a special place in my heart.
However, as it turned out, the HTCG Premium Food Concepts group, the brilliant minds behind Lugang, Tuan Tuan and had something else in store for us with their latest "Baby", Xiu: Fine Cantonese Dining
