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…

Ash Wednesday dinner in Pho Hoa Greenhills

Ash Wednesday for Catholics serves as the start of the Lenten Season. We attended the mass in Greenhills Shopping Center Chapel and right after the mass we headed to Pho Hoa which happens to be right beside the Chapel. Ordered a Rice Meal (Chicken and Shanghai Rolls). Price range around 270-300 php. Grilled chicken looks appetizing. It's not too briny, just enough balance or sweetness and saltiness. Youngchow fried rice is fairly ok. Shanghai rolls is a bit blunt in my palette. Chicken pot rice. However, it's not in a pot of rice. Rice is separated from the dish itself, (kinda confusing eh?). Important thing is, my kid liked it. And it's healthy because of the veggies like baby corn, carrots and chicken breast. Pho Hoa is a Vietnamese Resto however, the foods that I ate we're like a Filipino dish which you can easily prepare in your own home. Presentation: 3/5
Taste: 3.5/5
Price: 3/5

I'm a KID again! in PUZZLES

When was the last time you played a board game with your friends? Today, it's rare that you see kids play these games and all you see are kids playing on their mobile phones and tablets/ipads. Rekindle your childhood memories, those days when you just sit back and just play a simple Snakes and Ladders with your friends.

Puzzles - BF Aguirre. We went here the day after Vday just to spend our usual Sunday bonding with my fellow blogger friends. We first played my all-time favorite board game MONOPOLY. Yes! and this time it's electronic via ATM. When my childhood friends used to play this, we used play-money but now it's really modern, we use an ATM card, how cool is that? :)

I will definitely buy my own MONOPOLY. And I will teach my Chichi to play this game, as soon as she turned 7, lol.

An array full of board games. Loads of games to choose.

Second board game we played is HEDBANZ, this is the English version of PINOY HENYO. We definitely enjoyed all these 2 board games. And…
