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…

Crisostomo - Filipino Dining Restaurant

Mama and Papa are looking for their new car around Alabang and we ended up starving and we decided to have dinner at Alabang Town Center. It has tons of good restaurants and cafes and because we all haven't tried dining at Crisostomo, we finally settled here.

Crisostomo serves Filipino dish with the twist. The small restaurant has a modern-Filipino vibe and vibrant wooden furniture - which I love!
Filipino family loves to eat and my family loves to try different restaurant since I became a foodie and Food Blogger.
Rice is a staple in every Filipino family. And Adobo is our national dish (most popular dish in the PH). Adobo Rice with shredded pork and mixed with Salted Egg.
Grilled Pork Liempo with Sarsa, Achara (Pickled Papaya) and Okra and Tomatoes.
Tahong (Mussels) with White Wine. I love any seafood mixed with a splash of white wine. Perfect combi.
Sizzling Bulalo. With lots and lots of gravy and button mushroom. My fave of all three dishes that we ordered.
A fresh and very refreshing juice drink, Melon Juice.
Sansrival for desert. My kids loved it, as for me, I find it too sweet but I like the bottom part of it, lol.
Our total bill is around 2,000 php / 46.50 USD. Papa paid for it so I haven't checked the prices of each meal that I ordered. All meals are good for 2-3 persons so paying for this amount is OK for the budget.

  1. I think this restaurant is a great recommendation for anyone who would like to try Filipino food for the first time. Tahong with white wine looks sumptuous!

  2. I ate here before but I didn't really appreciate it. I like my Filipino food done traditionally in all its classic form :)

  3. now you got me drooling.. i love pinoy food ...that adobo makes me want more rice

  4. So much food! The sizzling pork liempo and the adobo rice are so lovely looking! I want some, please.

  5. When I visit this resto, the food that I would like to order is Tahong and also Adobo rice.

  6. I have eaten in Crisostomo branch in Eastwood. I thought the food tasted very good, but the servings are rather small for sharing. Or maybe we were really hungry. Haha!

  7. I rarely eat Filipino food, in fact I don't think I ever did. If this is a good place for traditional filipino food, this is where I will go in future!

  8. Filipino food with a twist is always great and considering the traditional Filipino cuisine. Likewise, this place looks romantic and quiet.

  9. Ahaha well it's good coz you were able to dine here. :) I miss a place like this. I remember there's also a filipino dining in Ayala Triangle back then, dunno if it's still there, it's called Kanin Club I think.

  10. The dishes are quite big portion. I like the Grilled Pork Liempo with Sarsa, the pickle papaya is one of my favourite.

  11. I love bringing my balikbayan friends at Crisostomo because of the Filipino flavor. They also have very delicious foods.

  12. I've only gotten to try Crisostomo once but it was a very memorable experience! I love the unique take on Filipino food ;D

  13. This seems to be a really good place to gain weight.. haha.. I wonder if i can visit this onetime soon.. hehe

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.
