2015 is almost over, and in a few days we will be welcoming a brand new year, and that only means one thing, (i guess a lot of things) planning your next travel destination! If the Philippines is not on your list of your next travel destination, you might wanna reconsider that list, because the Philippines will definitely exceed your expectation. A lot of the Philippines tourist destinations are listed on UNESCO world heritage list and some, are even included, for a time in the 7 wonders of the world list.Read More
Everyone who is working abroad and away from his family may have a hard time feeling the spirit of Christmas. This is especially true for those who are working on countries that don’t typically celebrate Christmas like China. Back in the Philippines, you know that it is almost Christmas; when you hear Christmas songs playing on the radio, when you see vendors selling Christmas decors on the street, when your neigbours are starting to decorate their gardens and the facade of their homes with Christmas ornaments and lights, when it’s getting cold, when there are Christmas parties everywhere, when ABS-CBN has released its Christmas station ID or when you see trailers of movies for the annual MMFF, and most importantly, when your parents are already planning the menu of what you’ll have on Noche Buena.
This year is my 8th year of celebrating Christmas away from home. I may have gotten used to celebrating Christmas on a foreign country but that doesn’t mean I am forgetting why it is called the happiest season of all. In a way, I am still lucky to be working in Macau, thanks to Portuguese influence, the city is not lacking when it comes to celebrating this festive season. There are lights and Christmas decors everywhere, there are Christmas parties everywhere and there are churches keeping this tradition alive. If I am lucky and I don’t get to work on Christmas day, I look forward to what I’m serving on our noche bueno table.

There are so many cities and provinces in Thailand that are worth visiting at least once in our life; let us start with the capital of the country, Bangkok. Thailand is known for its lovely beaches, cuisines and exquisite sceneries. It is a big country that it is impossible for anyone to go to all the places at one short period of time.Read More
There is no doubt that everyone loves to eat. It doesn’t matter which cuisine, whether on a fine dining restaurant or on a simple eatery, every once in a while we want to reward ourselves with good food. And sometimes, we want to eat more than what we normally have, lesser than binge-eating but more like feasting.Read More
It is very common that whenever we talk about Malaysia, the first thing that comes to mind is Petronas Twin Towers. This magnificent skyscraper is the pride and the ultimate and most popular landmark of the country. The country has seen a boost on its tourism over the years and the Petronas is undoubtedly the responsible for that. Petronas Towers may be enough reason for tourists to visit Malaysia but the country has still a lot to offer for tourists to make their stay more memorable and unforgettable.Read More
I’ve been hearing a lot of good words about Singapore, not only about its rich tourist destinations but also about its disciplined people and its very clean environment. This diminutive city, smaller than Hong Kong has a lot to offer for tourists and is commonly on the list of every traveler’s “places to go to.” Just like Hong Kong, Singapore has one of the most efficient Metro Rapid Transit or Mass Rapid Transport (MRT) systems in the world and is one of the cleanest cities in the world too.Read More
I’ve always been fascinated by Man-Made Wonders of the World that I promised myself to visit as many wonders as possible. I have great respect for ancient people who made these great Man-Made Wonders and I’ve always been bemused by their resourcefulness and creativity. I can’t help but think and wonder how they could’ve possibly built such colossal and magnificent structures without the use of modern technology. That has puzzled me to no end.
The Michelin Guide has announced its 2016 Stars for Hong Kong and Macau restaurants just recently. The Michelin result has been highly anticipated by all the restaurants as it proves critical for one’s business. For how many years now, Michelin star rating has been the standard of a restaurant’s quality and service. Michelin has maintained its reputation and credibility over the years and the unrelenting “inspectors” as they call themselves, have remained an enigma for restaurants owners and staff. A restaurant can greatly benefit from the ratings given by Michelin from boasting its popularity to growth on its income, thus, guaranteeing the longevity of the business. On the other hand, a slip on the ratings can be disastrous to a restaurant’s business.Read More
After a very long and tiring day from work, you just want to chill a bit, go to your favorite bar or spot, relax, grab a bottle of beer, binge-eat your favorite snack, talk sensitive and not work-related things with friends, forget about things that stress you even for just a couple of hours because you deserve it and you’ve been a great employee. Every once in a while you need this and that sounds fun. But you know what could make it better? Yes, you’ve got it right, Happy Hour! That’s the time of the day when you get freebies and great discounts for your alcoholic beverages, isn’t that great?Read More
