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…

Solaire's 2nd Anniversary - Food Crawl


I am thrilled that I've been part of the Solaire's Second Year Anniversary, and to celebrate with them, we've been part of their 6-restaurant food crawl. My stomach is not prepared for this food crawl, but I survived! Lol.


The first stop on our 6-restaurant food crawl is Finestra. First on the menu is Saltimbocca Alla Sorrentina. This is Finestra's Anniversary special offer. This ground beef topped with marinara sauce, mozzarella and basil is a perfection. If only they served it with rice, I will surely have 3 pieces of this little beefy meat. 




The second stop is at Waterside. They served us Paella Valenciana, a famous Spanish rice topping with great choices of seafood. Surf and Turf, this is a combination of meat, fish and seafood. Hanger steak, Salmon, Pork Ribs and Prawns. This meal made me full already. I love their Salmon, it is cooked to perfection and the Pork Ribs, the taste explodes in your mouth, 2 thumps up for that. And lastly Coaster, a Humita and Potato Carbonara. Humita is a pureed corn with a little kick of spice in it.



We went to Oasis Garden Cafe to try their delightful deserts such as Butterscotch macaroon cake, Blondies with roasted mango and avocado and Strawberry Chiffon cake. The butterscotch cake has layers of almond caramel filled with caramel and butterscotch parfait and roasted almonds. Blondies have fresh roasted mango and avocado panacotta. And lastly, Strawberry cake is their version of red velvet cake with vanilla mascarpone filling and fresh strawberries.



Red Lantern is our 4th stop. Tried their anniversary special offer Wuxi Braised Ribs. This succulent ribs is very tender, and again another dish that needed to pair with rice.


5th stop, Yakumi, a Japanese restaurant that served Ehou Maki for Solaire's 2nd anniversary. Unfortunately, I didn't have a bite on this Maki because I'm not a big fan of Japanese Cuisine. However, I love Tempura (that's it!)



And for our 6th and last stop is at the Strip. This bad boy meat is their Anniversary Special dish, Pastrami-Spiced Black Angus Beef Short Ribs. The beef is spiced with 4 different pepper corn such as, Black, White, Red and Purple Pepper Corn. A great way to end our night by this mouth watering, super tender beef.

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean. It's been a while since I had a visit to the beach and I had such a great time spending my 2 days at the La Thalia Beach Resort in Bauan Batangas.
