(Have you not forgotten anything, Mam, Sir?)”, then I replied, “Meron po eh, naiwan ko po ang puso ko (I think… I left my heart)”. Then the driver smiled with pride. I know he is proud. It is true! Batanes with its incomparable beauty is hard to leave and forget. It made us fall in love as soon as we laid our eyes on it and experienced the genuine honesty and simplicity of its people. And…

Known as the the Little Las Vegas of Asia, Macau (Macao) is definitely a land of luck and night life. Most people go to this place to play but like other passionate travelers, our reason is to explore and experience it the best way we can. We are so blessed to explore this once a Portuguese-colony China territory three times in the last five years.

The restaurant is own by a known film maker and artist, Kidlat Tahimik and is always included in the list of reviews for the top eats in Baguio.

And because I love their food more, I’ll talk about it here first. [caption id=”attachment_2370″…

I’m pretty sure that frequent travelers will agree with me when I say McDonald’s and 711 are two worldwide chains savior for us. Simply because these establishments has something that’s common to our place! The first time we tasted the burger in McDonald’s in HongKong, we didn’t like it so we settled for pancakes during our entire tour. The second time we went in HongKong, our dinner is kinda’ late so we took chance with McDonald’s. That’s only when we realized that their chicken tastes much better than what we have here in the Philippines. From then on, we made…
