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…

Junction Hostel - Affordable Staycation with an Unsual Quirky Vibe

Last February 2015, a newly opened hostel in Makati named Junction Hostel. Located in the heart of Makati. Near the Red District, A-Venue Hall and Saint Paul Makati are the nearest landmark if you're going to find this quirky, hip hostel. They offer a very affordable price for their rooms. Backpackers traveling in Manila have new options for their hostel accommodation. It'll be more enjoyable and fun stay in a hostel if you are comfortable in the place, has clean rooms, and very accommodating staff. 

Mind you that there is no lift/elevator here. Don't worry, they just have till 3rd floor, so using the stairs is not an issue. I immediately fell in love at their lobby/common dining/playroom/reading room. They have bean bags for sitting and just to have a chitchat with friends and fellow travelers.

American-Indian inspired hanging tent, so cool eh? Nicely done wall art plus the pastel colored sitting area.

Tv room and lounge area. Backpackers can share stories of their trave…

Authentic Chinese cuisine: Mandarin Palace Seafood and Shabu-Shabu Restaurant

The reason why I love living in the south is that we have an extensive array of good restaurants. And one of these is Mandarin Palace. Found in the stretch of BF Homes Aguirre. Open from Monday to Sunday 10:00 am till 12 midnight.  They offer authentic Chinese cuisines and mouthwatering dimsums, they also have private dining rooms for groups or  have a dinner date with your partner. 

For starters, we had Prawn Hakaw. Now, this is a great way to start the meal. I mean, it should be the soup though but in Mandarin, they offered us their best dim sum. (4 pcs for 128 php)

Shrimp Siomai (4 pcs for 88 pesos). The best seafood dim sum I ever tasted so far.  

Fish Lips with Mixed Soup (300 for small, 450 medium and 600 php for large serving). Yup! It's made from fish lips. And surprisingly it tastes good!

Fried Squid with Salted Egg, a must try here at Mandarin Palace. You can really taste the salted egg yet it doesn't overpower the taste of the squid. 

Deep fried Seafood Roll (500 php f…

Skin 101 introduces Revlite

What is REVLITE?
The RevLite emits light in rapid, short pulses at high peak energy for impact feels like no more than the snap of a thin rubber band. As the light shatters the pigment and diffuses the lesion, the spot will turn gray or white for a few minutes as the skin absorbs the energy. Any post-treatment discomfort will feel similar to a mild sunburn, and any redness will dissipate within a day or two as the skin returns to its natural color.

What REVLITE can do or skin?
Brown spots on the skin may often be and wrinkles. Freckles may have been cute when you were a kid, but now these melanin deposits are looking more like the aging remains from too many days lounging in the sun. Freckles, sun spots, liver spots – whatever you call them, they’re technically known as “pigmented lesions” and they form when melanin concentrates in one area of the skin, usually as a result of overexposure to the sun’s UV rays.

Skin 101 has 10 branches. The nearest to my place is in Alabang Town Center, …

Pasta and Pastry at Paume's Pastry House - BF Homes Paranque

You'll always see new cafes, restaurants and pastry shops around BF Homes Paranaque and the newest and a 6-month old cafe is Paume's Pastry House. This homey vibe pastry shop is located at #29 President's Ave. BF Homes Paranaque.

At first, it has been just a pastry shop that sells cakes, cookies, pasta, sandwiches and coffee, however, as what the demands of most customers, they added rice meals (specifically Filipino dishes). Most cafes in Metro Manila are incorporating Filipino well known dishes. As what Chef Carol says "We're giving our customer a reason to stay longer in our cafe so we offer meals not just pasta that kids and young at hearts will enjoy". The design interiors of the pastry shop are from Chef Carols' grandma's house in France. 

This salad is for our starter. It has fresh green with sweet almonds.

Roast Beef Sandwich. First bite, you can really taste the those thinly sliced beef. What I don't like it is that I can taste the mustar…
