#WORLDPHOTODAY : THIS IS MY WORLD THAT I SHARE WITH THE WORLD

“What camera do you use?”  If I’ve counted the times whenever I’m asked of that query, and if the number of times could be exchange to cash, I think I’d be richer than usual. I’m not complaining but mentioning a fact. While I consider it flattering, most people still believe that the beauty of a…

9 YEARS OF BLOGGING : 26 COUNTRIES, 5 CONTINENTS, COUNTLESS CITIES AND A THOUSAND AND ONE MEMORIES

Evolving.  That’s how I describe my blog that has been existing since I conceived it on 8th of May 2007. Complimentary airline tickets, invitations to sponsored hotel accommodation and restaurant reviews, exclusive social media events; international awards, citations, and a few features online and on print. Traveling and dining opportunities. Perhaps, even a bit of…

GERONA, TARLAC : ISDAAN RESTAURANT

I came home to this. Filipino food shared with my family. I was only away from the Philippines for fourteen months since late February 2014 but it felt like forever. Thankful for the chance to come home even for a week. There were no words to express how I’ve missed Filipino food, despite my current…

#TRAVELMEMORIES x BEYOND TOXICITY

Grateful. Ecstatic. Overwhelmed. Excited. Hopeful. Despite my pineal gland is fighting a good battle with Insomnia, because I need to stay awake for my responsibilities as I work on perpetual night shifts in an Award-winning-International-medical-insurance-company based in Dubai with branches worldwide, I cannot put into a single word the mixed emotions I’m currently experiencing as…

DOCGELO’S CHOICES : REMARKABLE TASTES FROM MEMORABLE CITIES

Traveling and eating. Food and places. These are indubitably inseparable. Each time I set foot in a country that’s absolutely new to my senses, I try my best not to leave without sampling any dish that at least represents that place, or any plateful delight that could make my days more memorable. Frequently, I crave not only for…

MONTALBAN, RIZAL | SUNNY AFTERNOON IN WAWA DAM

While a medley of boy band songs from Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees and ‘NSync were blasting my ears from the public utility jeepney’s high-decibel stereo system, I remained half conscious by listening with eyes both shut under my sunnies. I held tightly on the steel bar to secure myself on my seat just in case…

MAKATI CITY | CHIHUAHUA MEXICAN GRILL & MARGARITA BAR

In a city like Makati in Metro Manila where restaurants spring like mushrooms, deciding where to eat is always a happy problem. Most diners obviously go to their favorites, while some usually eat where cravings are satisfied.

MANILA | NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES REVISITED

I don’t know when did the National Museum of the Philippines start offering FREE ADMISSION EVERY SUNDAY that seduced me effortlessly to revisit. What’s definite is the fact that Philippine art, history, culture and heritage are now made more accessible to everyone regardless of economic status. Apparently, Filipinos, particularly those living within the vicinity of…

INTRAMUROS, MANILA | SAN AGUSTIN MUSEUM

I’ve been going to San Agustin Church within the historic and cobblestone streets of Intramuros, Manila since my wonder years. My parents used to take me and my siblings to 30 churches every Holy Week back then, and their list included San Agustin Church. But it took more than 30 years before I set foot…
