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…

Palawans Vietnamese Restaurant: Viet Ville

One of the kept and almost forgettable old restaurant here in Palawan is Viet Ville. Located at Barangay Sta. Lourdes, Puerto Princesa, Palawan and near one of the famous tourist destination - Honda Bay Resort. Open Monday to Sunday from 8 in the morning till 9 in the evening. 

Viet Ville is the first and only Vietnamese restaurant in Palawan. Opened in the 1970's where Vietnamese refugees fled to the Palawan mainland and built a small village and later on  Filipino nuns opened this restaurant with the help of some Vietnamese  by cooking and serving authentic Vietnamese cuisine. 2 Vietnamese cooks authentic Vietnamese dishes and herbs and spices are imported from Vietnam as well. Right now, there are only 2 families left in the village and most of the Vietnamese families lived in the United States. 

Inside the village, there is 1 Buddhist Temple and 1 Catholic Church.

A green scenery with years old trees will welcome you. And a photoshoot together with my blogger friends is a must here, lol. 

Aside from the relaxing scenery here, authentic Vietnamese cuisine fills our tummy on our 2nd day in Palawan. 
Here are their famous and best sellers food:

1. Chicken Spring Rolls for Php 80 / USD 1.7
Chicken spring rolls with vermicelli noodles and mint leaves. Never expected to eat 3 spring rolls for my appetizer, lol.

2. Refreshing Jasmine Ice Tea 

I had 2 glasses of this iced tea - it was so good and thirst quencher. 

3. Bo Kho / Beef Stew for Php 105 / USD 2.7
Mild spiciness  that is just right for my taste.

4. Lapu-Lapu Vietnamese Style for Php 135 per 100 grams / USD 3.00
In our table of 4, this fish is finished in no time, lol. That only means we really enjoyed this meal. 

5. Chicken with Lemongrass Rice Meal for Php 140.00 / USD 3.1
Tender chicken with right amount of lemon grass taste on it.

 6. Monggo Sapin-sapin (dessert)

It was a lovely lunch date with my blogger friends together with Direk Dante and his family.

Palawans Vietnamese Restaurant: Viet Ville 

*Disclaimer: Viet Ville sponsored our lunch however, comments and review are honest and not biased*


  1. Vietnamese food sounds good this weekend! You made me crave for it! For now, visiting Palawan is on my bucket list. Will drop by here someday. :)

  2. Looks like a nice, warm and cosy place. I love such small, colourful places. I bet the food must be really tasty!

  3. Wow! This Vietnamese restaurant looks very authentic and promising. I would love to try the Chicken Spring Rolls. Prices are budget-friendly.

  4. We missed this when we went to Puerto Princesa years back. I like Vietnamese food and I'm glad there are also a number of restaurants offering this cuisine here in Bacolod. :-) Now that it's raining, I want to have some pho.

  5. The food looks perfect for the body. I will cherish that in as much as it is healthy for the body.

  6. The most important aspect about a Vietnamese restaurant is the freshness of the ingredients. You will get to know this immediately upon tasting their spring rolls. That is my most favorite first course in a Vietnamese restaurant.

  7. i visited vietnam before, hcmc and nha trang and i fell in love with their food! it's flavourful yet feels healthier as it's generally less oily and packed full of veggies. i especially love their pho and banh xeo.

  8. This looks like a warm & cozy place. Restaurants like these are always top of my choice. Situation like this does happen in quite a few places, when almost every household moves in search of better prospects & by next generation they start living there!! Such villages are here in India too.

  9. When I was looking at the food, I imagined how they tasted like. Its attempt to make me want to eat was not effective. You see, I'm on a diet. Haha. But I sure want to try them someday. The place looks neat, though.

  10. I like the restos in Palawan because they have unique dishes. They also have really comfortable and refreshing ambiance.

  11. It looks like a great place to dine at when you're on the island. The food looks fresh and the place gives you that island feel!

  12. I love Vietnamese food especially their noodle soup and spring rolls. This restaurant is quite unique and surround by the nature.

  13. Very homely place. Food is simple but looks yummy.

  14. i wanna visit here sometime.. hehe as i see those pics of food i just feel like so much craving for them haha. nice article you wrote here. very enticing. :)

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.
