Malcolm's Burger

When it comes to burgers, I can say I have a hate-love relationship with them. When in a restaurant, it's not the first thing I will look for in the menu, probably the least that I would notice. But I consider it still as one of my comfort food. Well...

77 Food Haven Kapitolyo - Xurreria

There's a new food park in Kapitolyo yet again.  But this time it's different food scene altogether. It's an old house (or shall I say mansion, judging by the size of the house) turned into a foodie heaven housing different kinds of food stalls.

Secret Bar: RM-16

I've always wanted to go a Speakeasy bar but it's only recently that the Manila nightlife started embracing this type of bars. When I was in college, what were popular were disco bars where you couldn’t barely hear one another, dance 'til your feet...

I always deny that I like things that are Korean, but actually, I do. I buy a lot of make up and beauty products from Korean brands. I like their fashion style, a select few of their K-Pop bands and I've watched 1 or 2 of their telenovelas too (back...
