Persia Grill – Paranaque City, Philippines

I’m always a big fan of anything spicy, flavorful and fresh. When my palate craves for such, it has to be Greek or Persian! Tonight’s situation is far more serious than cravings. I need comfort. It wasn’t a bad day until I spent 2 hours queuing at the shuttle terminal. // read more


Manna Bakery & Cafe – Paranaque City, Philippines

It’s been a while since I spent quality time with my bff and today’s a rare chance. No third wheeling boyfriend (sorry, Alwin!) or other appointments and it’s a holiday.

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.

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
