What and Where I Ate in Alona Beach

April 16, 2015
Alona Beach
I have to admit that during our 5-day holiday in Bohol – we basically just stayed in Alona beach for the whole duration of it with only one day spent exploring the tourist destinations this island has to offer. It will then be very unfair for me to say (not to mention ignorant too) that Alona Beach is the hip and happening place in Bohol because I wouldn’t know that, I’ve never been anywhere else

Amorita Resort
If you’re bound to go to the island of Bohol in the Philippines and you’re looking for a hotel to stay in, you might have come across all the rave reviews about Amorita Resort which will make you want to stay there. That’s what happened to the Greek Mister and I as we were looking for a property to stay in during this leg of our trip. It was a little bit beyond our budget considering that we were

Where I Ate in Cebu: Mooon Cafe, The Walk, Cebu IT Park

Mooon Cafe, Cebu IT Park
I remember going to Cebu IT Park to hang out with friends during those days when I used to frequent this city when I was still living in the Philippines and how I have always enjoyed being there. So when the Greek Mister and myself had an unplanned stopover in Cebu, I already knew where I would bring him which I’m pretty sure he would love to. I wasn’t wrong. Cebu IT Park isn’t how I remembered it

Mandarin Plaza Hotel Cebu
Following the mishap that we faced through our Philippine Airlines flight, we found ourselves in Cebu on a supposedly first day of our 6-day holiday in Bohol. We hurriedly booked a hotel in Cebu just 5 minutes before we boarded the flight and crossed our fingers that we made the right choice. There was no time for us to read the reviews, all that mattered to us at the time was that it be centrally located. Mandarin

Where I Ate in Tagaytay: Mesa Restaurant

April 1, 2015
MEsa Restaurant
I think we didn’t do anything in Tagaytay but to eat and eat and eat which is why I am personally calling this city as the gastronomy capital of the Southern Tagalog. With the myriad of restaurants to choose from, it’s hard to maintain a good diet in this place. How can you say no when you have incredibly delectable dishes served in front of you? Exactly what happened to me when the Greek Mister and mys

Where I Ate in Tagaytay: Mahogany Market

March 29, 2015
Mahogany Market Tagaytay
Whenever The Greek Mister and I travels, we always prefer to eat at small family-run restaurants. We never had any inclination to dine in fancy restaurants as we’ve been sick and tired of it in Dubai and Doha where we’ve been living for almost a decade now. When we travel, we want something authentic, something unique, something cheap and something which the locals would prefer to eat so on our recent h
