Cinderella in Manila! Relive the Miss Saigon Feeling of being Proud to be a Filipino!

The valuable lesson I learned from Cinderella is that: “Impossible Things are Happening Every Day!”. I watched how Filipinos — Lea Salonga as Cinderella and Bobby Garcia as Director – are leading a predominantly American Broadway cast in the Asian premiere of Cinderella. Is it impossible for Filipinos to be a great nation in 2010? It’s Possible!!

Jonas’ Pares

Jonas is credited for inventing the term “Pares” which means the pairing of beef and rice.. It also refers to the value meal of beef, rice and soup. It was founded by Lolly Tiu in 1979 who envisioned a restaurant providing fine-dining quality food at a price affordable to masses. What makes Pares so special is how the beef was prepared and cooked. Seventy percent (70%) of the beef is lean meat from beef flanks; the rest of the 30% is from fat. The beef is tender because it was slow-cooked in a charcoal-fed fire for at least 12 hours! Anythying you cook for this length in time will definitely becomes soft; add to these the various spices it is definitely tasty and yummy.

Chili Willy’s – Tex-Mex Restaurant in Manila

I miss eating in a good Mexican restaurant like Zapata in Angeles. So far, the best Mexican food in Manila is hidden in the alfresco restaurants of Robinson’s Pioneer. The name of the Tex-Mex restaurant is called Chili Willy’s. It serves Tex-Mex cuisine which is a cultural blending of Southern Texas and Northern Mexico usually found in San Antonio, Texas. Just think of it as Fajitas and Burritos meet Steaks and Burgers.

Why Blog?

I love blogging and I’m addicted to it. I love it not because of the money or fame it brings but because of its essence.

I decided to pursue what I love and what keeps me burning inside. Let me share with you what the essence of blogging for me is and why you should blog too.
