Sangkap by celebrity chef, Raymar Reyes, is fast becoming a go to venue for Filipino food with a modern and more flavorful spin. Chef Raymar took a new approach in recreating classic Pinoy favorites from different regions in the country in one menu. The dishes he offers here give us a gateway to experiencing iconic dishes all over the Philippines.
I didn’t know what to feel when I got a prompt from Lakawon Island’s website that the TawHai Floating Bar will be unavailable during our stay due to maintenance and improvements. The reason I acted out is that everything was already set. We booked our room and paid for the floating bar experience prior learning that we wouldn’t be able to try it ourselves. I also read a blog that the Lakawon Island is just a mere beach like every other beach and the only thing that makes it special is the TawHai Floating Bar. But I was there and I tell you, it’s not your typical beach like what other people are saying! 😛
I clearly remember that I thought of taking Fine Arts when I reach college back when I was still in elementary school. It was a childhood dream. I was the usual kid back then who loved, and still loves, watching cartoons and drawing random stuff. But as time flies, I realized that the course wasn’t really meant for me. I was destined to be someone else. Nonetheless, art has always been a part of my life. From editing photos to curating my Instagram feed. In fact, it’s an integral part of life for some people.
Before I go out of town and celebrate the Labor Day long weekend, I got to indulge with some French and Italian delight at Agape. Thanks to Jen Santana (Sand Under My Feet) for the invite! I actually had both good and bad news with my visit. Bad news because it was scheduled at the same time of 3-Day sale event of SM Megamall and the traffic was terrible that I had to park in Shangri-La. Good news is that I made it on time, or maybe a little over the agreed time. 😛
There is a fulfillment in doing things that make you tired. Let’s take our day 1 of traveling around Taipei as a good example. Before we doze off and call it a night, I was on my phone the whole time and admiring all the pictures I took with my camera. Taipei gave me the infinite sense of wonder. I even forgot that I was super tired and have been asking for bed the entire day. LOL. Tossing and turning. That’s exactly how I would describe my excitement to start and kick off our second day with so much energy and positive vibes.
