I never really was aware that Binondo is such a great place for foodies and for those who are just plain hungry until November 2011, when my new-found friends from the Pinoy Travel Bloggers community invited me to join their food tour. I wasn’t able to blog about it. Period. Now that my The Himalayas Project team urged us to go on a Binondo food trip, I thought it’s time to create a blog post that has long been overdue.
When I first heard the words “app-based game”, I thought it meant a live game based on an application of some sort. I realized how ignorant I can get at times when I had the chance to try an app-based game today at Quorum Centre in Pasig City as Berghaus Philippines launches its Urban Adventure Games 2014.
“Your Home in the Sky,” says the slogan of the country’s flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL). Being a budget traveler and because of the extreme difference of the company’s airfare against low cost carriers, I have never been on any PAL aircraft since I started flying. So I have long been wondering how does it feel like to aboard a plane which promises the comforts of a home.
The whole reason why I was so thrilled to trek to the base camp of Mount Everest, well aside from its record of being the highest mountain in the world, was because I can finally experience snow and ice! Unfortunately, there was no snow. Just ice. I am not losing hope though as KLM Royal Dutch Airlines brings us the KLM Get friends & WIN! game where you can win an exciting winter holiday trip to Holland!

What you are about to read isn’t some inspiring or heartwarming travel story with amazing photographs to go along with it. This is not your typical fairy tale where everything ends well. Instead, you’d be reading, a boring narrative on how travel can change one’s perspectives in life, which in this case is mine. It is one of the most-anticipated times of the year when travelers and destination dreamers alike prepare for bloodshed. One of the major players in the airline industry is holding a promo offering ridiculously cheap flights to all of their destinations. I am just another warrior fully geared up for the war of finding the best price of plane tickets for our next vacation.
When visiting a new city I am always looking for delicious food, since each city uses different ingredients, has favorite flavors, and makes even unique dishes. But in Nepal, the most popular dish is by far Dal Bhat—steamed rice, lentil soup, and roti. This dish can be found in every restaurant, so I tried it in several places, but it wasn’t my taste. So I wondered, how is it possible that the locals eat Dal Bhat every breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
I had long been wanting to witness the prestigious international fireworks competition in the country for four years now. Last night, I finally got to watch the opening ceremony of the 5th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition in Seaside Boulevard of the SM Mall of Asia.
I only have two words for you readers, mountains and beaches! A little too late as a year-ender post but who cares. haha. So here, please join me reminisce my supercalifragilisticexpialidocious 2013 escapades.
WARNING: I am not a food blogger but I admit I love to eat so please bear with this amateur post. What comes to your mind when you hear the word ginger? Me, I can only think of salabat or hot ginger tea, you know, the one you need to drink when you have sore throat. It was just recently that I’ve learned that ginger’s not only meant to be made as tea but it’s can also be a vital ingredient of several cuisines. And Ginger’s Cafe Bistro is a very promising new café where all dishes are served with ginger.
