Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

The Urban Farm

Found another restaurant here at Robinsons Las Pinas. The Urban Farm is originally located in Paranaque near Tahanan Village. They opened their second branch in Robinsons Las Pinas. It was my second day to find another good restaurant with my Chichi.

From the restaurant's tagline "Farm healthy good food", they serve fresh and healthy style of food. The place is really inviting, coz of it's greenish hues.

So, while checking on their menu, the waitress gave me a tea. Which I still tried though I'm not a tea lover. It's good. I just forgot what herb/s they put on it.

I ordered roasted chicken. It has herbs on it which is not new for my palette. So, I think I paid too much for this dish, which is 220 php. Rice is too dry, chicken serving portion is small (very thin actually) and the gravy is made from the chicken marinate and they just put a little butter and some pepper and salt (well, that's what it taste like). 

I ordered 5 pieces of double chocolate cook…

Late lunch at Kat's Cafe

Robinson's Las Pinas is the newest shopping mall in the metro south. Went here 3 days after they opened and checked out the place and try some of their cafes and restaurants here. Found Kat's Cafe at their restaurant wing. Kat's Cafe used to be inside BF Resort Las Pinas. I love their new branch coz it's more spacious and more seating capacity.

Kat's Cafe gives a homey vibrant where you and your friends can relax, grab a bite of their yummy cupcakes and their coffee. Behind that book shelve is their loo. Cool right? Ingenious way to hide their loo. 

My daughter and I had late lunch here and because I was really starving, I first ordered cupcakes. Mine was Cookie Dough Cupcake and Chichi had Oreo Cheese Cupcake. I can't finish my cupcake coz I can taste the raw cookie dough, and because I can easily have an upset stomach, I'd rather not finish it, though the Oreo cupcake is way much better than the cookie dough cupcake. 

For our lunch, I ordered Carbonara P…
