    Passing through Glorietta 3 in Makati, I would not stop by had it not been for the smell of brick-oven pizza, the poster that promises fresh pasta, and the background music that exuded a European Bistro vibe. Think of ‘La Vie En Rose’, ’Un Homme et Un Femme, and ‘Dream a Little Dream.’ Ultimately, the […]

    Themed restaurants and bars are increasingly becoming a fad in Metro Manila. Somewhere in Quezon City, we hear about a restaurant that offers board games.

The result is El Chupacabra, Mexical’s  new dining concept located along Felipe St. in Bel-Air Makati. I first came to know about this hang-out place through my cousin James, who also happens to be managing this […]

    The Side Tripper

    “Make sure you don’t take any side trips,” warns Schumler, from a phrase in the 1993 American film Swing Kids. If you are someone who does not have time to lose, then it is better for you to stick to your main agenda, because there is something about side tripping that submerges the soul in experiences that sometimes make you hope that time would stand still, as the experiences they bring can be more impactful than the main trip itself. It is that free flowing agenda, an unexpected sleepover or a detour that has unintentionally brought pleasant surprises. You can live without it, like you can eat a cake without its icing, but your journey may not be as meaningful. If travel is the ‘best medicine for the heart’,* then for me, side trips are secret ingredients to the most memorable travels and other events that can happen in between or off the main route of one’s itineraries.
