One need not to be away from home to escape the daily stresses and monotony of everyday life.
Apart from the popular 5-star hotels that are easily top of mind when one thinks of family getways, there are actually other hotels in the city that offer great accommodation and service. These places actually make you realize that more than distance, it’s the homey feeling and personal attention that an establishment offers that makes a staycation memorable.
One such hotel that my family and I have recently been to which I am pleased to report has excellent service and amazing rooms is the City Garden Grand Hotel along Makati Avenue in Makati City.
It’s more fun in the Philippines. No doubt, we Filipinos know that for a fact. But as tourists continue to visit our country by the droves, people the world over are starting to realize (and agree) that there is indeed so much fun to be had here in our beautiful motherland.
Just imagine, according to a recent report by the Depart of Tourism, the Philippines registered a total of 2.23 MILLION international visitors from January to May 2015 alone. That is an astounding 8.15% growth from the previous year.
With the continuous and steady increase of international visitors (non-Philippine residents) in the country, not to mention the rise in numbers of OFWs coming back home to spend more time with their respective families and loved ones, it made perfect sense to make connectivity for our tourists as worry-free as possible. This is the very reason why Globe collaborated with the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) to drive its “Visit the Philippines Year 2015” campaign by offering its Globe Traveler SIM for free (Yes, free!), giving tourists a hassle-free and convenient way to immediately get connected during their stay in the Philippines.
How could enjoying great food possibly be made even better? The answer is simple, actually.
Enjoying great food matched with a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the entire metropolis, that’s how!
This is exactly what one should expect when visiting The Dining Room at 71 Gramercy.
Most would think that 71 Gramercy is only a place known for great drinks, amazing music and the hippest parties. Although you are indeed correct, you’d be pleasantly surprised to discover that there’s more to this place than just cocktails and beats.
I love photography.
Everything about how photos ate dramatically shot – composition, lighting, conditions, angle and technique – it’s just something to behold and be in awe of.
It is a wonderful skill that I’d really like to take formal lessons for when the opportunity presents itself.
So, when an amateur gets the rare chance to work with some of the best in the industry, it is absolutely crazy to say no. This is something every budding photographer would not ever want to pass up.
This is the awesome opportunity that four Filipino contenders will have as they join the search for the first ever “AirAsia Travel Photographer 2015” powered by Nikon.
For the AirAsia Travel Photographer 2015 powered by Nikon competition, four individuals who come from totally different backgrounds and industries have been selected. These lucky hopefuls will take part in one amazing challenge that includes traveling to different parts of Asia while learning valuable skills from their respective professional coaches, namely Nikon Pros George Tapan, Raymond Cruz, Parc Cruz and AirAsia’s resident photojournalist Adam Lee.

My wife and I were invited to attend a food tasting event at Mercato Centrale at Bonifacio Global City earlier today. The event was called “The Next Big Food Entrepreneur”. The were 64 different kinds of food concessionaires handing out free samples of their offerings. And by no means were their samples in small portions! […]
I love eating. It probably may not seem physically evident now after dropping 50lbs a couple of years back but I still do. I love good food. Who doesn’t? And every chance I get to try new food spots, I immediately grab the opportunity. I guess you could also chalk it up to having a […]
