Kim Bok Joo of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo made me realize even more that food is life!

After I got my Oppo F1S, here’s what happened to my Instagram newsfeed.

I instantly became a food blogger when my niche is about Asian Pop Culture and advneture. But even if I am an enthusiast of Asian Pop culture and tried different Asian food, I could proudly say that FILIPINO FOOD are the best food in the world.

10,000 Roses Cafe, Cordova, Cebu

March 11, 2017

Last month, 10,000 Roses Café had it’s soft opening and Cebuanos flocked over to Cordova to visit the said cafe, it became so trending and now one of the tourist attraction.  This cafe is located in Cordova, Cebu almost an hour away to Cebu City (I don’t know if it’s less traffic). It’s just beside the floating restaurant, Lantaw. It was inspired by Dongdaemun Design Plaza’s LED Rose Garden in Seoul Korea. Korea’s version has a lot more of roses but nonetheless, Cebu’s version is so magical already. (How much more in Korean, mga oppa nako!)

So we went there unplanned because well, what to do when bored, right? It was like a friend messaged you, “let’s laag? where? basta!” and poof! So Yassi and I decided to meet at Parkmall. Continue Reading…

Temple of Leah: A Sign of Undying Love

March 1, 2017

Temple of Leah is a fruit of love, sounds cheesy but yes,  Teodorico Adarna, father of actress Ellen Adarna and owner of Queensland motels, built the structure as a tribute to his wife Leah Villa Albino-Adarna. Isn’t he sweet? It’s like a Taj Mahal version here in Cebu.

I’ve wanted to visit Temple of Leah ever since I started working here but never got the chance due to some reasons. But finally, I was able to find time to go there. Thanks to Yassi and Regine who were really eager to go because according to them it’s insta worthy which is true.

When in Agta, Biliran, Leyte

February 11, 2017

I went to home last week in Leyte for a very important matter. A day before I go back to work in Cebu, my family went to Biliran to have a short staycation, as in really short. There are a lot of places to visit in Biliran, however, we are short of time so we decided to go to Agta Beach and VRC Resort in Biliran, Leyte.

 


Agta Beach is located at Almeria, Biliran Province, Philippines. It is approximately a 2-hour drive from Tacloban, which in turn is a one-hour flight from Manila, the country’s capital.

It is named after the cigar-smoking and tree-dwelling giant that according to to hearsays, roamed around the area. Sounds scary, right?


What’s in Agta?

The fine white sand bay. The cystal clear water. The visible islands around it and to top it all, it’s really quite there. Plus, the slow-roasted chicken! Yum! Continue Reading…
