Hacksaw Ridge is a film that I’ve been meaning to see for quite sometime now. The first time I saw its trailer, I made a mental note to put this movie on my must-watch list.
Fortunately, I had the opportunity to enjoy an advanced screening of Hacksaw Ridge just recently together with my wife and a couple of friends.
I love war movies. Especially those that are set during World War II. The gritty, gory and intense ground battles, especially when depicted unapologetically, make for one very real and in-your-face retelling. But another reason why I was drawn to this film is because of the stars involved in it — Andrew Garfield, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn and Sam Worthington. Apart from that, Mel Gibson, who happens to be an amazing actor himself, is the motion picture’s director. And given how “The Passion of the Christ” was so amazingly directed, I had very high hopes for Hacksaw Ridge.
Whether you’re a foodie or not, you most probably have already heard of one of the more notable food establishments in the Metro called, Le Petit Souffle.

If you’ve been following my blog for a good amount of time now, you’re probably aware that last year, I had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful staycation at Midori Clark Hotel and Casino located in the Clark Freeport Zone, Angeles City, Pampanga.
During my staycation here, I was able to try their Deluxe Room which I absolutely loved. Back then, they were still on soft opening… and yet, it didn’t feel like it since their service was amazing already.
Well, just a couple of days ago, I was able to visit Midori Clark Hotel and Casino again. And this time, I was able to stay at Midori’s highest room configuration — the MIDORI SUITE.

Music. It motivates people with active lifestyles to push further and train harder. It guides your rhythm. It keeps you company. That’s why I absolutely make sure to have music with me every single day I go out to train… whether lifting weights at the gym or doing a couple of laps outdoors. This is […]
Pasta is good for you. In fact, it’s the better kind of carbohydrate compared to white bread and rice. But did you know that pasta is good for your smartphone and tablet as well? It’s true! Just not the kind of pasta you think, though. The Pasta I’m referring to is the cool looking charge […]
Who doesn’t love protective cases? Apart from a case’s main purpose of keeping your device unharmed from nicks and bumps, it also gives your phone some much needed character. A case’s design is a statement. It also tells a lot about you and your individuality. And hey, admit it… we are all about standing out […]

Just because men, by nature, are physically stronger than women, doesn’t immediately make them any better. Don’t you find it wonderful to see independent and empowered women who know how to be beautiful and dainty, yet (for lack of a better word) “badass” at the same time? Folks, meet Cassie and Mina. Don’t be easily fooled by […]

When my wife and I go out to enjoy each other’s company over good food, it doesn’t necessarily mean finding a restaurant where we could both have a significantly heavy meal. Sometimes, finding the right spot with the right ambiance and a couple of snacks is enough. That’s why when we visited Marco Polo Ortigas […]
The first thing that comes to mind when I hear the name “Matabungkay” is childhood memories. If you are more or less my age, living in the Philippines back in the ’80s and early ’90s, it is quite impossible not to know Matabungkay Beach Club. It is one of the most popular and notable destination […]

My KTG family isn’t just all about food, travel and having a good time, you know. I love this rowdy foodie bunch because we try to find ways to be part of advocacies that we truly believe in. Just as we have shown our support to victims of Typhoon Yolanda and documented our trip to […]
We Filipinos complain about a lot of things. Common Pinoy folk would bicker and rant about how bad the state of our lives are and how tired we all are about the sad and seemingly hopeless predicament majority of us are in. As much as we are all entitled to express our feelings and frustrations, […]

Because of all the hullabaloo due to Carly Rae Jepsen’s upcoming concert here in Manila, I decided to repost my daughter’s short (and very cute) “Call Me Maybe” video which we did last year. She actually did most of the conceptualizing… we both had fun doing it. The video only covers 1 stanza and a […]
Caught my wife on video when she suddenly started singing “Zombie” while Max (our little Pomeranian) was sleeping beside her. I don’t think Max approves of her voice… LOL!!! Watch the video… funny! *It was pretty dark so not much to see but the audio is really amusing…
