I am one of the lucky few who witnessed Boracay’s inexplicably beautiful sunset for the last time before the beach went under rehabilitation for 6 months. It was my third time and I was as excited as a normal person who is about to embark on a new journey. Boracay holds a special place in my heart simply because it’s one of the many places I first visited and probably one of the reasons why I love being under the heat of the sun and hearing the sound of waves. I can say that I’m also one of the lucky people who firsthand experienced the beautiful island back when it wasn’t spoilt and crowded.
We all have lives that revolve around something or someone. Same with real life scenario, Gata’s very essence revolves around gata or coconut milk, hence the name. Not sure if you agree, but it’s somehow true that — EVERYTHING IS BETTER WITH GATA. #BicolPride
Bodega Kitchen & Bar is the go-to dining and drinks stop at the heart of Salcedo Village. The sit-down restaurant can house 40-50 customers and its an ideal place for a more intimate and casual dining experience, featuring progressive Filipino cuisine and adventurous signature cocktails.
There’s always a story behind every Foodie Meet Up (FMU) and our recent visit at Skewered in Alabang really put our regular commuting skills to the test. It was quite an adventure, actually. We were supposed to take the P2P bus from Starmall Shaw to Alabang, but it wasn’t available by the time we were leaving and so we ended up taking a regular commuter bus. Anxious at first, but we managed to get to our destination without any sign of damage. LOL. And need I mention, the struggle is real! Oh! And there was never a dull moment on the bus with my crazy foodie buddie, Julie. 😀
I am still asking myself, “Why now?” Why did I just learn about this restaurant now? Why not sooner? Why not as soon as it opened its doors circa 2016? It’s probably because I was busy with my life (all aspects of it) and I didn’t have the time to explore Poblacion itself or, perhaps, it was lacking good marketing that time. I don’t know! What I’m sure about is that Taperia Poblacion is one heck of a restaurant serving Filipino-Spanish dishes that brings heaven to you!
