Halo Halo de Iloko






My cousin has a good friend from San Fernando near La Union's Best Halo Halo de Iloko. And she confirmed that they have the best halo halo in town.

After a long day from the beach, we came back to her friend's neighborhood to try Halo Halo de Iloko. The street reminded me of our neighborhood back in Makati but insert this famous halo halo resto. It was not yet Christmas but the old-style house was full of lights to accommodate its visitors at night.

We tried okoy with their famous home made sawsawan, I am not a fan of okoy but I love their version of this cuisine.

Aside from the food, you will enjoy the homey museum design of this place. If you like their sawsawan, they have vinegar for sale, same with honey, wine, peanut butter, sardines and kornik.

Girl Travel at Flotsam and Jetsam









How much is Happiness? You better check Flotsam and Jetsam. This hostel is one of the famous art beach hotel in San Juan, La Union and also a surfer's haven!

Since I am staying at La Union, my cousin brought us in this amazing spot. You might not notice their entrance from along the high way. But once you walked the lousy gate and got into the main space, you will get awe specially if you are a surfer. Everything shouts surfing! But its a good place for relaxation too.

Although we did not check-in on their bamboo apartment, we tried their foods and drinks. We were also allowed to roam the place and had our things stay there while we were in the beach. If every beach have art hostel like Flotsam and Jetsam, it will be each traveler's dream! Good food, cozy ambiance, art lover and nature structure.

Pinay Travel at Yah Coffee








Been hanging out with pretty ladies I met here in Isabela. Nothing more fun meeting nice and pretty girls while I am on vacation that makes me feel I am not new here in town.

My cousin's friends are very welcoming, first I am invited in a wedding after I just met the couple. Then my cousin's girl friends decided to go somewhere else and I was tagged along. Talking and laughing with these girls are a breath of warm air since its my second time in Cauayan and first time meeting them.

Besides the wedding, I had been with these group of girls at Yah Coffee on the newly built SM Cauayan. Coffee and frappe over Dota, high school, Makati Med, kids, BPI, work and a lot of other things.

More happenings with these girls to come..

Store at St Francis Square: A Good Story of Starting a Business





We just launched our dress store at St Francis Square. This was a sudden decision that me and a friend decided, we were supposed to have our swimming lesson and the next thing we know was we were checking the location and ordering clothes from supplier.

The next day, we collected the dress and set up our stall located at the third floor of the mall. I am very thankful because people from there helped and lend us things that we need. I am surprised because those who are supposed to be our competitors are very nice to us. From day one until the following days, they had lend us and do good to our store, giving us tips, lending us things, checking our store when our saleslady is getting water or going to restroom.

Aside from that, we met a lot of people who shared their stories from our saleslady, other stalls' saleslady, other stalls owners or St Francis Square Clothes Store, up to our suppliers.

Get money - that is everyone goal in setting up a business. But as days go on, I became to like the idea of mingling with different people. This is sure to give me a lot of new perspective in business, socializing and giving a care.

I would also like to give thanks to our family and friends who had been very supportive to us.

Filipina Travel at NBA Cafe Manila





After attending an occasion held by one of our friend, my girl friends thought we should take that day to talk more and eat more. And since we are already in Global City, we chose SM Aura to pick a place to chill. 

We wanted to try the Magnum Cafe but the place was jam packed. So we resorted to this place, NBA Cafe Manila. The cafe was big, lots of space, quiet and looks pretty cool because of their NBA display. We ordered some and started talking about the vacation we are planning. There is nothing amazing about the food but we enjoyed looking at the NBA memorabilia. Some of things on display are for sale and you would be surprise how much a signature ball cost.

Maginhawa Food Trip














My cousins invited me and my brother to go with them somewhere in Quezon City. All I remembered is Maginhawa Street. After few minutes of riding a cab, we arrived in the famous food trip place in Maginhawa, it's full of different food restos and stalls along the street. 

We walked for few meters when we stopped in Cocina Juan with El Tacontento and Cupcakes by Gremlins. We ordered dinner and opted to eat outside since they were full. The place is cute and small. A lot of people inquired but since there was no space, they lost some customers. The Buffalo Wings, Quesadilla and Iced Tea with Basil all taste good but not the best, also they have small serving that I can say that its expensive for a simple meal they served.

We moved to Friuli Trattoria and outside their shop, you can smell how good their pasta and pizza. We were waiting for few minutes but the aroma of their food is so good that it is okey to wait. We had red and white pasta and cucumber pizza, its all worth waiting for!

For finale, we went to Moonleaf and went home full.

Pizza and Beer









Pizza and beer after work make all the stress of the week go away. Got a new recruit, our Chinese Content Writer. That really made our Friday night more fun cause she don't commonly go with colleagues after work. Plus she usually needs to go home early to check her online games status, a real gamer girl, and really had a bad eyesight when its dark. So having her go with us is a really big breakthrough! 

I really miss this girl, she's very nice and helpful to me, and I like hearing her stories. Maybe we can have a night out with her again.
