When it comes to hotels and finding a place where one can have a relaxing getaway, there are tons of options around. But there are only a few that really stand out no matter how brief one’s stay is.
One such place that impressed me a whole lot is the newly opened Somerset Alabang Manila. I had the pleasure of staying here just a couple of weeks ago and I must say, every praise I’ve heard that was said about this establishment is truly well deserved.
Although my stay at Somerset Alabang Manila was very brief (overnight, actually), I made sure to take advantage of the room we stayed in and make the most of the time we had.
If there is one restaurant that never fails to excite me every single time, it most certainly has got to be Restaurant Tapenade at Discovery Primea in Makati City.
My visits there are always filled with great memories of delicious food with friends and family. All around great guy and boss of Primea’s kitchen, Chef Luis Chikiamco, really knows how to make get-togethers unforgettable through his culinary skill and creativity.
That’s why whenever Chef Luis has new dishes to showcase, I’m always there… well, every chance I get, that is.
My recent visit to Restaurant Tapenade was just as exciting as Chef Luis revealed a good number of dishes which happen to be their newest additions to their menu, focusing on the captivating flavors of the Meditarranean.
Here are just some of the wonderfully new offerings that caught my attention which you can expect during your next visit to one of the Metro’s most beloved restaurants.
I’ve always been fascinated with contact lenses. How one can freely move around with no hindrance or discomfort that comes with prolonged use of eyeglasses.
I’ve been using eyeglasses for a good number of years already and somehow, there are still moments when I find myself complaining or irritated by my spectacles. I guess everyone who has ever used one can relate.
But for the life of me, I could not get myself to wear contact lenses. The thought of seeing my finger slowly nearing my eyeball gets me all queasy. Hahaha! I don’t know why. It’s just one of the many fears that I have which includes needles among other things.
Thankfully, my daughter, Ella, is the total opposite.
It’s here! The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has finally (and officially) arrived in the Philippines!

OMG! I’m sooooooo excited! If you are, too (who isn’t?), then read on to know more…
One of the most anticipated superhero films is finally upon us! Doctor Strange!
From the time Marvel made the official announcement that they would be making a Doctor Strange movie and that Benedict Cumberbatch would be cast as the Sorcerer Supreme, I eagerly waited for this day to come. During the long wait, month after month I made do with whatever behind-the-scene photos and teasers I would chance upon and find on the internet.
I had the awesome opportunity to attend the advanced screening of Doctor Strange just a couple of days ago at the IMAX Theatre at SM Mall of Asia. My joy and excitement couldn’t be contained as I counted down the days.
I’ve always been a comic geek. I grew up collecting comic books, reading them over and over again and escaping into my own fantasy. This is probably the reason why I’m part of the demographic that’s sincerely hoping for a close-to-faithful retelling of Doctor Strange’s origin story. Thankfully, Marvel did not disappoint.
Are you like me who gets easily paranoid when your smartphone’s battery is almost about to run out and the day isn’t over yet? You probably are if you’re as dependent as I am on my phone. Gone are the days of smartphones such as the Nokia 5510 wherein its battery life would seem to […]
It’s happened to me more than once – I’m in one of my teleserye tapings and some of the scenes that I’m included in are spread out really far apart… or I’m holed up in a vehicle bored out of my wits during a really daunting roadtrip. So, what does one do during these loooong […]
A month after getting an iPad Mini, only now have we actually fitted our device with protective casing. I guess my wife wanted to savor its “commando look” before pimping it up with a much needed cover. Can’t blame us… you know how handsome these Apple gadgets are especially when struttin’ it around in all […]

Lack of focus and stress are some of the terrible effects of being hungry while stuck in traffic. Thank God for the Snickers Don’t Drive Hungry initiative!
Earlier today, I spent quite a while at “H Studio” for the Cookoo Watch photoshoot. [fsg_gallery id=”1″] My wife was kind enough to take tons of pics “behind the scenes” which I’d like to share with all of you. This photoshoot is in preparation for Cookoo’s new campaign very soon. Watch out for the posters! I’m […]
Had my haircut yesterday (long overdue). Off to the gym now for a much needed workout before my pictorial in the afternoon.
My little daughter, Ella, loves YouTube. She loves watching “do-it-yourself” videos, music videos and a ton of clips. She loves it so much that she, together with a couple of her BFFs (Monica & Hannah), decided to put up their own YouTube channel called, “3 Awesome Angels”. Check out their introduction video below… They plan […]
