Everything With Fries – Singapore

What could’ve been a better side for grilled, fried and baked dishes? For me, nothing beats good old fries – whatever form, shape, size and name it’s called. It always makes my meal more appetizing and filling (for sure! calories! carbs!). // read more

Bag of Beans Coffee Shop, Restaurant and Bakeshop

Weekends are always best enjoyed with family. Since my sister is home for the weekend we decided to have breakfast in Tagaytay to catch up and bond.

We left our house at 10:30am and reached Tagaytay in an hour and a half via Sta. Rosa road. If you frequent Tagaytay, it’s the average travel time from Sucat/Alabang with little traffic congestion in Sta. Rosa and a quick stop over at a gas station along SLEX. Nonetheless, it was fast. When we reached Tagaytay, it was just in time for lunch. (wait, you thought its breakfast? I did too) // read more

Puzzle Mansion: Labor of Love and Dedication

So after our lunch at Bag of Beans, next stop is at Puzzle Mansion.

Frankly speaking, upon reaching the venue, the “mansion” part fell below my expectation. I was looking for the typical image of mansion, a grandiose structure or at least close to it. I was even unconvinced that entrance fee is P100 per head. But I did pay anyway. // read more

Cruise Down The Bosphorus, Turkey

Most of the time tourists don’t prefer taking a cruise when the place they are visiting boasts a lot of historical spots. They would rather take a walking tour and cross out as much ‘must see’ places than lazily sitting in a cruise for hours.
