Chef Ralph “Paeng” Ongchiong of Saffron’s Amorita Resort, Bohol

Chef Ralph “Paeng” Ongchiong of Saffron’s Amorita Resort, Bohol
A good resort or a hotel becomes better if it has a fantastic chef, a culinary artist who has divine taste for food. He/she would definitely attract more tourists and food lovers alike. I say such because I believe it is part of every tourist agenda to experience local food during their travels. The more popular fast food joints becomes a mere fallback. We stayed at Amorita Resort during my visit to Bohol. It is considered one of the best resort-hotel in the province. We had the pleasure of meeting Chef Ralph “Paeng” Ongchiong, who was currently assigned as head chef of the resort during...

What to do in Bohol

What to do in Bohol
I do agree on their tourism slogan — Fantastica Bohol. The place is so great that it met or perhaps surpassed my expectations. Everything was magnificent. Bohol houses, the finest beaches, a beautiful man-made forest, the majestic Chocolate Hills, and the tarsier, which is the smallest primates in the world, to name a few. There are many things Bohol is known for, not just the tarsier and the Chocolate Hills. Like this beautiful man-made forest. When you get there, you may want to visit the old baroque styled churches, taste the original broas (lady fingers) of Osangs, shop at Senen and Irma...

Sarangani Experience – Maitum

Sarangani Experience – Maitum
I’m very thankful to the organizers of S3X Tour (SOCCSKSARGEN Experience Tour 3) for another memorable experience. SOCCSKSARGEN stands for South Cotabato-Sultan Kudarat-Sarangani and General Santos and this is my third time there. This time, one of our destination is Maitum Municipality in Sarangani Province. I never knew anything about Sarangani aside from their finest diving spot and scenic places of the coastal roads of Sarangani Province. In Maitum, Saragani, there are lots of places to see and lots of food to experience. One of their most famous food is the fish above. Bangsi is very famous...
