Manila to MoA on Foot

Manila to MoA on Foot

It was one of those weekends when I got the urge to revisit some old routes that I’ve not been to for quite a while.  This time I thought of running along Manila Bay via Roxas Blvd. from Quiapo, Manila to the SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.

This tour includes a magnificent view of the sunset at Manila Bay!

Quick Bite: Kyo Chon

Quick Bite: Kyo Chon

Ever since I’ve heard that one of Korea’s most popular fried chicken restaurant chain, Kyo Chon, had arrived in the Philippines, I’ve always wanted to try it and like any new foreign franchises arriving in the country, the queue is just long.  Fortunately, luck was on my side and I was able to avoid the crowd and finally get in.

Who wouldn’t be curious to try anything that this guy endorses? :D

Food Trip: Little Tokyo

Tokyo is one of the places I have always dreamt of going to.  While that dream is still being realized, there is a little spot in the city of Makati that I can go to that sort of gives that feeling of Tokyo—well, I think it does, and it is appropriately called Little Tokyo.
