I’ve talked to several people living in Davao and asked them what makes their city different from the others and they all say that Its all in the Mayor’s governance. They say that their mayor is a hard working guy. The Mayor sees to it that his rules are being followed, like for instance, a...

Luneta (Rizal Park) – Then and Now

Luneta (Rizal Park) – Then and Now
Then: Luneta is one of the known parks that Manila has up to now. As I can remember, the first time I went there was 1983 when my balikbayan cousins made a visit here in Manila. I really enjoyed the place, walking, playing with my cousins as if the place was so safe for us back then. But, when I went back in the early 90s, the place was so unsafe. Lots of bystanders, beggars and street children that who would always ask for alms that they look like the own the place too. Lots of litters can be seen because of un-systematized street vendors and un-disciplined people around they tend to throw their...

AirPhil Express Review: 4 out of 5 Stars
It was time for another trip for me and my schedule was set to go to Biri Islands in Samar. I booked my flight with AirPhil Express formerly Air Philippines – something I’ve been doing since I promised never to take Zest Air again. After this very interesting experience, I decided to write an AirPhil Express review. This is NOT a sponsored post okay? So just enjoy reading as I tell my story and what happened to me that day. I had a Manila to Catarman flight set at 6:00 AM. I was at the NAIA Terminal 3 airport at 5:00 AM and patiently lined-up to go inside the airport. 5:15 AM – I...

Piyesta’s Pakbet and their Set Meals!

Piyesta’s Pakbet and their Set Meals!
I really love eating vegetables and one of my favorite vegetable dish is Pakbet. Pakbet is a tagalog  tasty vegetable dish made-up of different fresh vegetables, pork, and shrimp paste. I know some guys out there hates it because of its one major ingredient is ampalaya or the Bitter melon. The reason why I love Pakbet is because of Ampalaya (bitter melon) and the Okra’t Kalabasa (Lady’s Fingers or gumbo and Squash), they give lots of benefits in our health. Its really hard to find a perfect vegetable dish like this especially the right bitterness of the ampalaya. Good thing I have found...
