Mesa Filipino Moderne Cuisine

Love Filipino Cuisine?  You gotta try Mesa.  Been around for a while but they still serve some of the best Filipino dishes here in Manila.  Unique and with a twist.

Ryoko’s Place ← our home away from home

When travelling to an expensive location like Japan, chances are, hotels could be very expensive too!  That is why, I am so thankful for Airbnb.  Not only do we get to save a lot from booking a hotel, we experience how it is to have a home away from home. Ryoko is a superhost andContinue reading “Ryoko’s Place ← our home away from home”

makansutra

A trip to Megamall one Saturday led us to Singapore.  Yes, to Singapore! Makansutra is a like a food hub with various restos and each of them has its own Singaporean food specialty. The place is interestingly nice.  I like its artistic interior here and there.  Even the tables and chairs stand out on theirContinue reading “makansutra”

Food: The Goodness of 100% Buffalo Milk

We are always left with no room for dessert after we have a meal.  So we decided to have desserts first!
