One Night and One Day in Bangkok

It has always been a pleasure to be in another country.

There is always this feeling of being mystified from discovering things for the first time. When even the differences in culture and language cannot create a barrier for interaction. One day is indeed not enough to enjoy what Bangkok has to offer…but we’re satisfied. Great food – check, beautiful sceneries – check, grand temples – check, nice hotel – check, friendly people – check!

What more can I ask for???

another day perhaps!

Razon’s of Guagua

Razon’s Halo-Halo is probably the best halo-halo in town …at least for me…some find it overrated (too simple)…can’t blame them actually. But for me, the simplicity of this halo-halo is its selling point…the right amount of sweetness and creaminess.

After a long hiatus from eating this halo-halo (back when I was still working around the area of Robinson’s Ermita, we made it a point to drop by that small kiosk of Razon’s to have regular intake of their Halo Halo), we visited their Mall of Asia branch for lunch..

Their Halo-halo remains the topnotch halo-halo that it is known for…I just noticed that ice was not as finely crushed as they used to (not sure, if it’s just me)…as for the rest of the food that we ordered —NEVER MIND…the restaurant itself, way too cramped….let’s stick with the halo-halo, shall we???

Thinking of Boracay

Yesterday, my wife and I went to the Travel Expo at the SMX Convention Center – SM Mall of Asia. We were able to book airline tickets for our December travel…this time it’s not Boracay…

It has become a regular thing for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Boracay, this year will be an exception but no…not because we got tired of Boracay…it will remain my favorite place…the finest sands and the friendly hotel staff…the walking on the beach…not to mention, the food! Boracay will always be Boracay!

Tapa sa Taal

For me, this is the best tapa!!! and some friends do agree…It’s from the town of  Taal, Batangas.

Imagine the garlic -tons of garlic,plus calamansi and all other secret ingredients that go with this tapa….I don’t eat beef and this one is from pork, so…perfect!!!

If you’re on a diet and you’ve decided to remove rice from your daily food intake…this tapa is not for you….
