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…

Papa's 58'th birthday at Borgo Cafe Robinsons Las Pinas


Celebrating birthdays is one of the most special thing to do with our loved ones. Remembering that special day and forgetting that we're getting old, lol.



Last September 21, we celebrated my Papa's 58'th birthday and we had dinner at Borgo in Robinsons Las Pinas. There's not much good restaurant in Rob Las Pinas but we had no choice but take chances because going to BF Aguirre is way too traffic and we might be starving while being stuck in traffic.
When we get inside the restaurant, I noticed that every table has wines on top. They have dry white wine, chardonnay and I think they also have red wines.
Complimentary salad bar here at Borgo. That night, they also have mushroom soup and we all loved it especially my kid who loves eating mushroom.
We ordered 2 set of family meal. First on the list is Angus Salpicao with Mashed Potato. Just looking at the picture will make you full now. Generous amount of Angus beef, big chunks of button mushroom, perfectly cooked and seasoned mashed potato and loads of veggies.
Another beef menu on our family set meal is, Butcher's Steak with Mashed Potato. What I love about this dish, the beef is perfectly cooked in medium-rare. Which you can really taste the sweetness of the beef and it's really tender.
Marina Bay Pasta. With mussels, button mushroom, fresh tomatoes and topped with parmesan cheese and bread on the side. I like Italian cooked pasta which is a bit tangy with loads of cheese.
Quattro Pasta. A strange looking pasta that's somehow looked like an Asian noodle dish. The taste is different and you couldn't compare it to carbonara. Not my favorite from Borgo menu.
Paella, last to be served and we're all already full. Actually we all just taste this and we ended up having this to be packed and my parents take this at home. I had 3 shrimps and 1 slice of egg and about 3 tablespoon of rice.
We paid about 2,500 php/ 58 USD for these 2 family set meals.  My faves are Angus Salpicao and Marinara Pasta. These two are a must-try here at Borgo Cafe.

Beach-Lovin: La Thalia Beach Resort

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. Batangas is a 2-hour drive from Manila and Bauan Batangas has white beach sand.
