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…

Food Crawl at Westgate Alabang

One of the best thing to do is eat - do you agree? Trying out different restaurant in 1 day is heaven for me. Cons - I will get fat, but hell I care if I'm gonna be able to try the best food in 5 restaurant - I don't mind that, lol.

South has so much to offer in food and drinks. And we're able to visit 5 restaurant in 1 day. These are: Bugsy's Bar & Bistro, Sushi Ninja, Neil's Kitchen, Melo's and Detoxify Bar. First stop is Bugsy's.

Buffalo Chicken with Blue Cheese Dip - a not too spicy and very tolerable hotness on this badass chicken. Chicken is perfectly seasoned and just enough spiciness which Filipinos love.

This is one of my fave chicken dish at Bugsy's - Sweet Glazed Chicken. I'm positive that my kid will love this chix. Crispy chicken with sweet sauce.

Chicken #7 - this is not yet on their menu. Why Chicken #7? Because it's tossed with Jack Daniel's. Yup! Chicken with alcohol is a must try here.

2nd stop is Sushi Ninja and we had Kobe Toshi. Fried sticky rice topped with thinly sliced beef and wasabi and caviar.

I'll be very honest on saying that I'm not a big fan of Japanese cuisine. I only eat tempura and that's it but being a food blogger give me a reason to try the unfamiliar and "not my type" food. It's my first time to try this raw tuna salad and I only had one bite and that's it. But hey! it's an accomplishment for me to try a new food.

3rd stop is at Neil's Kitchen and they served us this unusual paella dish. We Filipinos love pork sinigang and this time we all had a first try to this Sinigang Paella with grilled Pork Belly. This is to-die for dish. Topped with crispy kangkong and the paella really tastes pork sinigang. I love this dish and will definitely be back at Neil's Kitchen and order this again.

4th stop is Melo's Steak. They served us this huge cut of steak - Christmas Steak Roulade with Turkey Stuffing and Sweet potato. Perfectly cooked beef that you can really taste and appreciate that they used a prime beef.

Our final stop is Detoxify bar. What a great way to end out tummy-full day with this Berries Smoothie Bowl. With fresh Kiwi, Strawberry, Nuts and mashed Banana is heaven!

So south peeps and even north peeps, visit Westgate Alabang and try one or two of their restaurants and enjoy the goodness of south restaurants offer.


  1. I totally agree. 1 of the best things to do is to eat!
    The Berries Smoothie Bowl looks way too delicious!!!

  2. Bugsy's is one of my favorite restos here in the South and Detoxify Bar is my post-workout spot. I have yet to try Neil's Kitchen and Sushi Ninja. I know where to go to next time for our Sunday family dinner.

    1. Sushi Ninja has small place so if you will go there at lunch make it around 11am

  3. Too bad this area is simply too far from where we live. The restos you post about look very tempting. I dread driving to the South because of the traffic!

    1. December or not theres traffic here in the south lol

  4. I rarely visit the south because it's so far from Binondo, where I live. Westgate Center is really a great place to do a food crawl. I've yet to try those restaurants you visited except for Neil's Kitchen which I have visited last month. :)

  5. The chicken wings look really flavorful, I would love to try those. On top of that, Melo's sounds like an amazing restaurant. Truly, it is best to top it all of with fruits!

  6. I was able to try Niels at Westgate. I love their different way of presenting Filipino foods. I also love the steak at Melo's.

  7. Wow I would love to be part of a food crawl. Haven't experienced that yet but I'm sure you'll get your tummy hurting afterwards. hehe Love the buffalo wings with bleu cheese dip and that Steak Roulade.

  8. the food looks delicious. i would love to have a taste of these dishes one time soon

  9. Paella and Pork sinigang sounds funny together, but I can't wait to try them soon

  10. YES EATTTTT for days! But for real, I love food crawls. It's such a great way to try out restaurants.

  11. That sounds like food coma! Oh gosh, so many places in a day! even taking sample bites out from all the dishes will be filling!

  12. There's more interesting restaurant and bars to explore in Alabang. I'd like to try Bugsy's chicken#7 with JD.

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. La Thalia is a half hectare property that has a great beach front andrelaxing rooms - couple room & barkada room/family room, Pavillion that can accommodate 100 pax, restaurant, basketball court, table tennis, and water sports such as Jetski, Paddle Boat, Kayak and they also offer island tour where you and your group can have fish feeding and snorkeling at the same time.
