If there's anything that Rain really enjoys, it's when we have a staycation at a hotel. Since I've had a grueling work schedule, we haven't been able to go on a staycation for a awhile, so when I went out of town on a business trip, I promised her that her mom and I would take her to Holiday Inn Makati for a fun filled weekend.
The relaxing environment of our One Bedroom Suite allowed me to get some work done, while Rina enjoyed being able to shop at the neighboring Glorietta Mall!

During my trip to Los Angeles last year, my Niece Cara and I made a food run to the nearest Sonic Drive in so we could experience a good old fashioned American Drive In. The nearest branch to where we were staying was at Mission Viejo, and we decided to shoot a short video while we were there, as we tried our respective burgers. Can't wait to go back!
I can't think of a more perfect way to celebrate Chef JP Anglo's Birthday, than by trying his six new additions so the menu of Sarsa!

The result are delightful twists to classic favorites, that you undoubtedly wouldn't want to miss!
What better way to chase the rainy day blues

ease of cashless payments using GCash Scan to Pay.
While Rina was vacationing in Korea, Lil's Miss Rainbow and I dropped by Shi Lin so I could try their amazing Chinese food, such as Sweet and Sour Pork, Xiao Long bao, and Rain's favorite dish.. Hakaw!

Tokyo Tokyo continues to amaze their customers with new additions to their menu, that always finds a way to hit the right notes.

I was craving for some dimsum when Rina, Chaika (My sister in law) stumbled on to a little hole in the wall restaurant called "King's Cafe" at Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, that seemed to command quite a crowd. Intrigued, we decided to give it a try, and we discovered they had one of the best Beef Brisket dishes in all of Hong Kong!
Since I couldn't find a seat in Shake Shack, I decided to take a long walk over to Stanley Road in Hong Kong's busy Central District, to visit the legendary and highly acclaimed Roasted Goose restaurant, Yat Lok!
Once I got there, I was surprised with how long the line was, but I kept the faith and eventually I was let in!
