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…

Lola Cafe Quezon City: A Taste of Filipino Cuisine


It's rare for me to go and have food review somewhere north of Metro Manila, just like Quezon City. It's not that far from my place, however, it's the traffic that bothers me. Thank goodness that going to QC didn't disappoint me. Lola Café is a hidden café restaurant here in Quezon City, it's near GMA network and Tomas Morato. Just right in front of the old and 1st branch of Max's.



I'm loving all their deco art and the bar area.






The place is an old house and turned into a café restaurant. Here are my top 6 must try at Lola Café:

1. Sisig Bone Marrow with Pita Bread - I'm a Sisig lover, so this dish is my fave.


2. Chili Prawns with Bagoong



3. Lengua with Truffle Oil - Heavenly dish!

4. Chicken Tinola Rice Toppings


5. Beef Salpicao


6. Merengue with Raspberry Sauce -Good for 1 person as it's so good for a sweet tooth like me.



Visit Lola Café from Monday to Sunday and try these hearty dishes that Filipinos will truly love.

    1. Most meals will range from 200 to 500 and all good for 2 to 3 person per serving.

  4. Sisig Bone Marrow is my favorite there. The Beef Salpicao is also super tasty! It would be almost a crime not to eat it with rice. The ambiance at Lola Cafe is nice and quiet, which makes it an ideal place for family gatherings or dinner with a special someone.

  9. Thank you for the recommendation, Lee. I think I'm familiar with the area. Seeing these dishes, I see why they're worth the travel. I'd go to Lola's Cafe for the Beef Salpicao ( a perpetual favorite of mine ), Chili Prawns Bagoong, and the Bone Marrow Sisig.

  11. Food here looks delicious and like you i tend to avoid the city areas at all costs due to the traffic congestion.
    That alone makes me want to hide in the comforts of my own home.

  12. I always love it when historic buildings are converted into hotels or restaurants. Its a very good way to preserve them and make them profitable instead of demolishing.

  13. The Chili Prawn with bagoong looks really tasty. The rest is also a unique treat for customer.

  14. Food are amazingly great! And the place is a bit modernize though as you have said it is an ancestral house(old house) turn into a restaurant.

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.
