I recently took my family on a quick road trip to Nueva Ecija to check out the recently opened branch of Isdaan Floating Restaurant.
Isdaan Floating Restaurant has long been a popular destination and stopover spot for locals and tourists alike. They serve great food and offer up some fun and novelty attractions.
If you’ve already been to their original branch in Tarlac and fell in love with its unique ambiance, you’re surely gonna enjoy Isdaan in Nueva Ecija. It retains the same atmosphere and ambiance that we have come to know.
There is an ongoing contest for GMovies and I am sure many of my friends and readers would love to join in and participate! It’s called the GMovies #ARTEchallenge!

It’s actually very fun to do and it takes very little of your time.
Enjoying a selection of cheese with a glass of delicious wine is something I would never ever pass up. It is, in my opinion, one of mankind’s greatest pleasures (and creations).
I’ve always loved cheese. All kinds, in fact. From the subtlest flavor to the strongest and most pungent of varieties. Wine, on the other hand, is something I rarely enjoy. It isn’t my go-to beverage when I visit restaurants and bars. But, that isn’t to say that I dislike them altogether. I don’t mind a glass of red every now and then — especially when there’s a fine selection of cheese around.
You see, this practice of serving wine and cheese together have lasted for many generations, dating back hundreds of years. And no one knows the delight of this culinary art more than the French. This is exactly why I made it a point to experience an authentic wine and cheese tasting session during my recent trip to Paris, France.
How can you not, right?
For those who aren’t aware, my great grandfather is French. He grew up in a town located in the Alsace region called, Obershaeffolsheim. It sounds German, I know. But only because Alsace has long been in the middle of a tug-of-war between France and Germany, being ceded by the Germans more than once.
So… what better way to immerse myself in some of the finer French culinary practices than by partaking of some wine and cheese the way my great grandfather used to enjoy it.
The best treats are normally the ones you never really expect.
This is pretty much how I would put in a single sentence my short but sweet stay at Winford Hotel and Casino in Manila.
Little did I know that right smack in the middle of the bustling Manila scene, I would happen to chance upon a delightful escape that rivals the experience one gets from the usual, more established hotels in the metro.
I’m sure that some of you who probably live in and around Manila already know about Winford Hotel and Casino. It’s actually not hard to find since the place is strategically located just a stones throw away from commercial establishments and malls. But for someone like me who only passes through the busy city of Manila every so often, it was a truly pleasant surprise — even more pleasant when I experienced staying at Winford with my family for a couple of nights.
Friends and family know how paranoid I get concerning low battery problems on my smartphone, including my other gadgets. That pretty much explains why I carry a ton of power banks in my sling bag every single time I’m away from home. A ton of power banks is in no way an exaggeration. On any […]
Looking for a device that can keep up with your everyday activities but can’t quite decide between a tablet or a laptop? Get both! No. I don’t mean for you to get two separate devices. I meant get both! Still confused? Hahaha! Ok… ok. Get a device that performs perfectly as a tablet and a […]
The little speaker that could. That’s how I would probably describe the Carbon Audio Pocket Speaker. You’d think that something that can easily fit inside your shirt pocket cannot possibly produce sound so rich and full. Not to mention, loud. You’ll notice immediately when you open the Carbon Audio Pocket Speaker that its design is […]

The past few weeks have been very taxing for me. A string of events here and there, plus I had to finish a good number of songs on my workstation at home for a couple of clients. All these commitments and important deadlines have cost me much needed sleep. I feared so much that my […]
Looking to impress your date this Valentine’s? Whether you’ve got plans or not, you’re gonna want to Dine Under the Stars at The Terrace of Maxims Hotel.
A celebration of American optimism through a wonderful selection of Beringer wines was held at the M Cafe in Makati to the delight of sommeliers and guests.
Feed your inner geek by checking out the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story mural which was recently unveiled at the Sky Dome of SM North Edsa! It’s awesome!
Had a quick informal meeting at Burger Company the other night just after my circuit training session at the gym. I figured I could use a good amount of protein right after a grueling “Ultimate Spartacus” workout. I’ve tasted Burger Company‘s amazing burgers before but only thru delivery and take out. It was the first […]
One of the best ways to create wonderful family bonding moments on a regular basis is by encouraging family members to enjoy the activities you love doing. It doesn’t matter what kind of activity so long as it is wholesome and everyone can get in on the fun. Biking, dining out, movies, game boards, whatever… […]
Did some interval training last night. It was a combination of chest and bicep exercises combined with a minute of intense cardio (stationary bike on this occasion) in between each set. This particular evening, I added more weight to my chest presses. I also mixed up bar and dumbbell combinations for bulk and definition. I […]
It’s sad that I have to write yet another rant on my blog about SkyCable’s internet service – SkyBroadband. I am trying to bite my tongue so to speak, as I’m clacking away on my keyboard, trying to find less offensive words to say. I’ll just keep this short and sweet brief because I might […]
Boracay is one of the most visited islands in the Philippines. It is pretty much the go-to destination for locals and tourists alike not just for summer but all year round. And with good reason. Just recently, Boracay has once again been named Conde Nast’s, “World’s Best Island”, which isn’t really any surprise to anyone […]
Have you ever seen those amazing Bamboo bicycles around the metro? The ones being rented out and used for tours around places like Intramuros in Manila and Bonifacio Global City? Well, chances are, you probably have since they’ve already become quite the attraction in many hotels, establishments and tourist spots as of late. The response […]
Guess what, folks. Philippine retailer, Puregold Price Club Inc., is going full swing and taking its retail marketing from the ground to the skies with the formal launching of its new plane livery. That’s right!
My wife keeps telling me that I look silly almost every night falling asleep while tinkering with my smartphone. Either, tweeting, editing photos, or playing games in a comfortable position always leaves me feeling sleepy… and more often than not, I end up dozing off. During a taping of my teleserye (“Magdalena”) last week, some […]
It’s hard to explain how one can play with a toy and be scared of it at the same time. Ngayon lang ako nakakita ng taong kinikilabutan sa sariling laruan. Panoorin niyo maglaro ng puppet si Marie Aileen Regina Dreyfus habang sabay na kinikilabutan siya. Hahaha! Ang labo! LOL! :)) Enjoy the short video below…
After quite a while (more than a year, I think), my wife suddenly had the urge to run outside and do some cardio. It amused me so much that I decided to tag along and record her short sprint around the block on video. Guess what I did with the video clips I recorded… I […]
