I was contacted by people from Eastgate Publishing last May, and they informed me that my photo of the Terraces Ayala Cebu will be published in the June issue of Mabuhay – the in-flight magazine of Philippine Airlines.

I finally got the complimentary copy of the magazine.

Thank you Eastgate Publishing and mabuhay! Read More »

Golden Cowrie Filipino Restaurant in Cebu Philippines

A lot of people made a comment on my Hukad sa Golden Cowrie post, and most of them agreed on the poor service and food quality at the Terraces Ayala branch.

It may seem very contradicting that I recommended Golden Cowrie as one of the restaurants in Cebu to visit and dine in because I somehow trashed the Ayala Cebu branch.

Most of the good dining experiences I had of Golden Cowrie was at the SM branch because my family frequently go there.  This time around I’ll be featuring Golden Cowrie in Lahug.  Find out if my dining experience in this branch was better, great, or worse!

          I was with my friends Fedge and Marlon one lazy Sunday last November in Olango Island… you know, the one with the much ballyhooed bird sanctuary. I had a very unforgettable experience man gud back in college when my class went there for a field trip… it was surreal but nice lol… that’s why I wanted to go back. Unfortunately for us, when we went there last November, there were not that many birds in sight. There were more fingers in both my hands than there were birds. A disappointment, I know. But that didn’t stop us from shooting away… with our cams, of course.

I love my job!

Oh well not entirely but only for some of the perks that came with it.  As someone from the product development field, I have suppliers from around the world and when they visit me here in Cebu, they are forced usually treat me and/or my boss out to lunch or dinner for meetings or just hang out with them after an intoxicating discussion.

Lunch at Nonki Japanese Restaurant was one of those days.

Chinese Restaurant in Cebu: Dimsum Break

For the past few weeks, featured home-grown Filipino restaurants in Cebu Tsiboom and Golden Cowrie, and also popular pizza places like (the controversial) Alberto’s Pizza and Calda Pizza.

This week the Pakalistas of will bring you some Chinese loving.  The Chinese have very strong influence on Filipino cuisine.  Typical examples are the pansit and the lumpia, which are very much of Chinese origin but are also served in Filipino restaurants in the Philippines.  But whatever origin it comes from, as long as it tastes good, affordable, and easy to prepare, the Filipinos will love it!
