Happy Birthday Baby AIDAN DOMINIC!

By

After 6 hours of having an induced labor in the triage of the Genesis center of Asian Hospital, we finally have a successful normal birth.
…We immediately proceeded to the Asian Hospital and got confirmation that the bag is leaking and we have 24 hours to give birth or else it would be risky.
…At one point, the baby had difficulty getting out and the baby’s heart beat dropped to 70 bpm (normal is 120) and there was tension in the room.

The bag of water broke!

Kikufuji — Authentic Japanese in Little Tokyo

By

My friend Shigo-san ( a japanese national based in Manila )recommended that Izakaya Kikufuji serves the best authentic Japanese food in Little Tokyo. It was my Brobo’s last night in the Philippines before going back to the states, and this was the perfect time to try out Kikufuji. Check out these pictures –> Kikufuji Photos The sushi’s and sashimi’s were excellent specially the rice that they used for the sushi.

Sanctuario – a secret dining place in Tagaytay

By

Since they just moved to a 50-person capacity place in the Tagaytay circle, some articles in the web would give directions in its original location beside the korean place along the tagaytay-Sta.
…During my first time, my brother and wife tried their desserts and I should say you should not leave the place without trying their signature raisin bread and home made pinipig ice cream!
…In this way, you get a chance to savor the experience and uplift your mood on your way home (like the last song syndrome effect –> if there is such a thing as a last restaurant syndrome).

Inspiring story but a disappointing lunch @ Carlos Restaurant

By

We were excited to have a taste of good spanish food and excited to eat the suppose to be killer food Nudillo, cocido and the paella.
…You order a set meal about P500/person and it comes with bread and liver pate, mushroom soup, salad with strawberry vinegrette, the home made cheesecake by his wife, Malou.
…Don’t get me wrong, it is good but we are expecting a true spanish cuisine and different from the ordinary Filipino food.

Relaxing Tagaytay Escape @ Nurture Spa

By

I’m sure that if you are a spa addict, you should have been already to Nurture Spa since its already their 3rd year in operation. This was my second time to Nurture and I brought along my brobo (who is a certified spa addict) before he goes back to the states.
…Massage (Just OK) I can remember during my first visit that there was a steam bath before going to the actual massage but apparently it was not part of the signature massage anymore.

A memorable dinner @ La Cocina de Tita Moning

By

First, I was excited that after 4 years that the restaurant is in operation, we finally found an occasion to celebrate in this fine dining place and at the same time, a financer (my momsy or my balikbayan brobo) to pay for the bill (approx. … However, I’ve also received alot of feedback from friends who tried it that the food was not the great for the price and it is too hot because there are no electric fans to conform to the old house theme.
…A tip by Aling Tining, just make sure that you don’t eat there at the same time that the president is dining because there would be alot of security guards that could cause tension in the area.
