One of the most well-known Japanese restaurants in the country, and arguably the most authentic of them all is Yurakuen.
Being a lover of Japanese food myself, I recently dropped by Yurakuen Japanese Restaurant at Diamond Hotel to indulge on a good number of their spectacular offerings.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been fascinated with teppanyaki tables and how food is cooked in front of you. So, Yurakuen Japanese Restaurant was most definitely a dinner date I ain’t going to miss. But, apart from feeling like a giddy child again, I arrived prepared with a ready and able tummy.
So, shall we begin?

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 why having a good music streaming service, reliable mobile data and a dependable set of earphones are absolute musts for me.
While I’m pretty much an avid fan of Spotify and have never had the need to switch to a different service, my set of earphones are a totally different story. I’m constantly on the lookout for better ones that can keep up with my kind of lifestyle – a pair that doesn’t get in the way of my physical activities, yet doesn’t mind getting soaked by the intense sweat of my training.
Right now, I am currently trying out the BlueAnt Pump Mini.
The BlueAnt Pump Mini is a sturdy pair of bluetooth earphones that promises 6 hours of play time on a mere 1 hour charge. And though, I haven’t really worked up the battery of this baby enough to see if it does last that long, using it for 2-3 hours at a time during long hauls and intermittent training proves its power to be very promising.
Guys, I wanna share something with all of you… I hope you take the time to read this. Believe me… it’s worth it.
I am writing about this because I really want all of you to know about it.
I recently underwent a treatment being offered at Contours Advanced Face and Body Sculpting Institute called “Acutrim”. Acutrim is basically acupuncture but uses laser instead of needles. The session only takes 45-60mins and is virtually painless.
Acutrim promises to increase body metabolism and control your hunger cravings almost instantaneously after your first session. This is something that really got my attention because the constant struggle to control food intake is very real – not just for me, but for a lot of you, too.
What’s in a name?
Well, if you’re an establishment that happens to be associated with the name, “Nobu”, then clearly a lot is riding on the reputation that precedes it.
When Nobu Hotel Manila first opened its doors last year together with City of Dreams Manila’s official coming out party, it immediately became one of the most talked about and much sought after hotels in the country. And with good reason.
Nobu has become a brand known for qualities such as beauty, comfort and attention to detail. Their restaurants and hotels constantly provide the kind of excellence that has made them the destination of choice of individuals who seek great food and impeccable service.
Nobu Hotel Manila, as with all other Nobu Hotels around the world, is inspired by world-renowned Chef, Nobu Matsuhisa, and his dazzling array of hip, modern restaurants. Partnering with him is none other than Academy award winning actor Robert De Niro and Hollywood producer Meir Teper. Their establishments are designed by the internationally-acclaimed Rockwell Group, whose hand also created the look and feel of Nobu restaurants throughout the world.
My wife and I were able to have a short but very fun staycation at Nobu Hotel Manila just recently and I just have to say, the experience was nothing short of incredible.
And if you’ve never stayed at Nobu Hotel Manila and have been wondering what to expect there, then you’ve come to the right place!

I just had one of the best gastronomical experiences recently. No doubt, one for the books… and probably the looooooongest dining experience in my entire life. My wife and I had the pleasure of being part of an amazing food tasting dinner event called, “Hayop Na Degustacion”… and I have Ms. Dedet dela Fuente and her very own Pepita’s […]
I love to eat. I can pretty much tell when something tastes good. Though, I may not be technical when it comes to a dish’s intricate qualities, my gusto and enthusiasm more than makes up for it (I hope!). Just recently, my wife and I were invited to join an awesome group of buddies (and […]

If you spent most of your childhood years in the late ’70s and early ’80s like me, it would be impossible for you […]
You’re probably familiar with Conway’s Bar inside Makati Shangrila. Well, they’re saying “farewell” after a good 20 years of music and memories. Together with a few good friends from Nuffnang, we dropped by to have some fun and say “so long”. T’was a good run, Conway’s! Cheers!
