Have you been to Himlayang Pilipino Memorial Park in Tandang Sora, Quezon City? Yes, it’s a cemetery. And don’t worry, this is not a horror story. I just noticed that more and more people are becoming interested in historical and heritage tours. This is actually great because it is important to know and embrace our history and culture.

Who doesn’t love Max’s Restaurant, “the house that fried chicken built”? Since its establishment, the restaurant has been Filipinos’ home during family gatherings and celebrations. In fact, even during simple lunches or dinners, Max’s is still a great choice, especially for our small family.
Buenas! Quetal man ustedes? Bueno man? 🙂 Here we go! MAY was a very fun and productive month for me as I was able to join my fellow foodies from #WeLoveToEatPH starting with:
Hodai, which means “all you can” in Japanese, is a newly-opened fusion restaurant in Examiner St., Brgy. West Triangle Quezon City. The restaurant is set in a two-storey house built in 1965 but is renovated and converted into a Japanese restaurant.
Dark Specialty Coffee is a beautiful coffee place in SM North EDSA. It is located on the second floor of the main building right beside their sister company Onesimus Suits and Barongs. The coffee place exudes pleasant vibes all thanks to the dim lighting, cool interior & coffee bar layout and of course, the wonderful smell of coffee.
Attention fellow Northerners and burger lovers! POUND will open their 9th branch at SM North EDSA on May 6, Monday. When POUND first opened, I only read good reviews about their gourmet burgers. As soon as they started opening more branches around the metro, I also started hearing good things about them from friends. But since I don’t pass by those areas I didn’t get the chance. Now that I do, I grabbed it! Btw, I would like to thank #WeLoveToEatPH and POUND for the invitation to experience dining at their newest branch. Please SUBSCRIBE. LIKE. SHARE. POUND – SM NORTH EDSA Like their other branches, this one also feature dim lighting that complements well with the marble tables and plush leather couches. Though it’s not as big as their other branches, this one can accommodate up to 30 people. Not bad, right? Now for the food. Since POUND focuses on delivering gourmet burgers, we ordered their burgers which, by the way, were presented in small boxes as well as other interesting dishes. #Truffle Fries …
You don’t need a reason to enjoy ice cream. If you want one, go grab yourself a cone or, better yet, a spindle bread cone! In the newest building of SM North EDSA, you will find a dessert shop that brings a fresh twist on the classic Filipino ice cream sandwich we all love. The place is called Dough Creamery and they offer creamy soft serve ice cream on top of their special doughs (bread).
Buenas! Quetal man ustedes? Bueno man? 🙂 Before we bid April farewell, let me share with you what I did that month. Wait a minute! I just realized that I didn’t have a lot of activities outside work mainly because the summer heat came early. You know what? People should really stop calling it summer because we don’t have the other three seasons – spring, fall (autumn), and winter. As far as I know, the only seasons in the Philippines are Wet, Dry and Christmas season! 😉
Do you remember the feeling every time you open a new book from that series you so much love? What about the moment you learn it will be adapted for the big screen? Do you also remember the waiting game and the opening day?
The summer heat is really intense. As much as I would like to visit one of the coolest places in the country like Baguio, I could not because of the massive amount of work I have at the moment. Good thing there’s a place in Quezon City that will remind you of the City of Pines called K&L Cafe.
It’s hot, isn’t? I thought only ice cream and other frozen desserts can beat the summer heat. But every visit at 7-Eleven allowed me to discover many great finds that are perfect for the hot weather.
They call it eyeglasses, some call it specs but we simply know it as glasses. The magical frame-bearing lenses that let people with weak vision see the world clearly. Indeed, it’s a splendid invention but I never liked it and never even imagined myself wearing one. But the day I had to, came sooner than expected.
