Manila holds World Street Food Congress 2017


  1. This is good for the promising chef who works in a medium scale resto or who are working as a cook in a first class hotel. This is best opportunity for them.

  2. It's nice that it's not just a place for food appreciation. They were also able to add some talks from key resource persons.

  3. World Street Food Congress? Now, that's interesting. I'm someone who loves streetfood and tries something wherever I go, as long as its veggie!

  4. I really wanted to go to this event but I've been to busy. The choices seem so incredibly cool! :D

  5. Today's the last day. This one looks exciting! Unfortunately, we already have scheduled with other events so we can't go.

  6. Ooh! I didn't know there was an event like this in Manila. I'd love to meet famous Filipino chefs! So far I've only met Chef Laudico.

  7. Carlo: I will pray that someday I will be able to travel in this place. I want to learn their culture

  8. Food congress?? This must be something I will be so much interested to try out and venture the new food.

  9. I think I've went for one in Kuala Lumpur before. I think it will be quite interesting to experience one that is in Manila.
    Did you try any food that you like a lot?

  10. It's just nice to have an event like this because, we are what we eat and this gives us the taste and feel of who we are as pinoys! Nice to be back in your blog after all this time! I love that youre travelling too! I should learn from you more!

  11. This is probably an event many food lovers looked forward to and appreciate. This event allows people to taste different types of food from different countries which also gives them a bit of glimpse about different countries` culture.

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.
