At Tim Ho Wan Manila Michelin Star Restaurant

So I’ve finally visited TIM HO WAN Manila! I’ve been seeing a lot of photos of Tim Ho Wan’s Manila restaurants plus their uber popular baked buns with pork BBQ (char siu) filling.

Tim Ho Wan, which originated in Mong Kok, Hong Kong, is recognized as HK’s most famous Michelin star restaurant. Actually, Tim Ho Wan is the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant!

At the Senator Chiz Escudero – Heart Evangelista wedding

TAPS restaurant Davao has a warning for table hoggers

TAPS, a famous local restaurant in Davao City, Philippines best known for their silog meals and is open 24/7, has a warning especially for table hoggers. A table hogger is a person who either spreads his work or bags and other stuff across a table (and therefore discourages other customers to use or share the table) or a person who orders one item (usually the cheapest on the menu even!) and stays at a table practically for several hours! I’m sure everyone has spotted a table hogger at one time or another. I guess TAPS Davao gets a lot of

I Am Again A Newspaper Columnist

Very, very thrilled to share that I am (again) a newspaper columnist! Starting February 20, 2015, I will be one of the columnists at Gold Star Daily, Mindanao’s largest newspaper. I have named my column “Mindanaoan Meets World” as I plan to write about lifestyle, music, a little bit of politics and showbiz and travel not only within the Philippines but around the world, too! My first stint as newspaper correspondent, columnist and part-time editor started way, way back. Like eons of light years ago haha! But life happened, I took a career detour and eventually, was already happy and
