Chillin’ and Food Trippin’ in Baguio City

Blessed to have been to Baguio City, several times. As frequents thereof, it is now our normal routine to wait for the other shoe to drop then we are off to Baguio once again. Hashtag official business transaction a.k.a. working vacation 😉 But unlike the many trips we had in the past, in this instance…

Q’Diaries: Binignit

ECQ in our locality has finally ended but we’re not yet out of boringville unfortunately. And of course, times like this all I can think of is food. And do you know what’s on my mind right now? Ever heard of Binignit? In Tagalog, it’s called as “Ginataang Bilo-Bilo” while Bisayas (“Visayans”) refer to it…

ECQ Diaries: Missing our Cebu Foodventures

It’s not easy to be in an enhanced community quarantine. It is such a bugger that we have no other option but lock ourselves up within the confines of our homes and miss on things we normally do, because the enemy is invisible. #Covid19 During these challenging times, I repeatedly browse on old pics to…

Camiguin Villas

When we speak of Bali, we always equate the name with luxury or anything postcard-worthy. How could we not be when we get to book villas in Bali and majority of the accommodations being offered boast of a perfect landscape deserving of anyone’s IG space. Unfortunately, villas are not a thing here in my country….

My Ilocandia Tri-City Dream – Part 1

It all started with the cobblestone path of Calle Crisologo. I always had this absurd fantasy when I was younger envisioning myself in a Traje de Mestiza with a pañuelo, a tapis and an abaniko to complete the ensemble and promenade around cobbled streets with century-old houses as my backdrop. When I learned of Vigan…

Chocolate Laboratory

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, almost always, but chocolates are, every time. They’re inexpensive, they’re pocket-friendly, they’re everywhere and they satisfy one’s cravings all the time, now that’s a real deal and a lifesaver, boys do take note. But its production are often tucked away from the public and eventually off the limelight, and…

Time Out

There are times days appear to be momentary, quick, swift and short-lived and once in a while they seem to be longer and lingering than they are supposed to be. Times like this, realization dawns upon me that life shouldn’t all be about boring desks, cluttered drawers and endless piles of paperworks for life is…

Around Siquijor in One Day

We had one so many attempts to visit Siquijor for months already and all the time, our efforts only proved futile. It wasn’t because of all the horror stories hunting the island itself (we are pretty much sure about that) or the rumors about sorcery and witchcraft that’s been going on and around the country…

Go Healthy and Artsy with Buzzz Café (Bohol)

Fast food for fast paced life, always convenient but never healthy and while we absolutely subscribe to this thought, we could never escape this part of our reality. Sadly, our modern lifestyle often gives us little to no room for home made dishes or decent meals so considering nutrition packed food is almost always not…

#FoodVentures: Bacolod City

Our gateway to the island of Negros two years ago was a wedding invitation which we cannot refuse. Being new to this seemingly strange land back then, we were more geared on visiting local attractions having to set aside our desire for food so as not to go over the budget. Yes, we’ve been anywhere…
