Marriott Manila Knows How to Party

This month, we partied with Marriott Manila as they welcome their New GM Mr. Scott Sibley. This is the first time we stayed in an event that long and most of the credit goes to the lovely food and entertainment brought in from Bar 360 of (Marriott Manila neighbor) Resorts World Manila.


Aysee Greenhills Sisig

I don't eat innards and the like. Except for Sisig. Some types of Sisig. Jeff introduced me to sisig through Aysee many years back in Pasig. I have never forgotten that first sizzling plate of sisig and the buttery flavor with hot sauce, soy sauce and calamansi. In my opinion, it's the best sisig in Manila. It is now in Greenhills and it's just a few minutes away!


Bizu Macaroons Menu Picks

I missed this year's International Macaron Day Manila by one day! You know about my love affair with Bizu Macaroons, right? There were a lot of unfamiliar flavors in the Bizu Macaroon selection during that ordinary day. Care for some White Truffle, Blue Cheese or Thai Peanut Macaroons?! Without my usual Pistachio, I decided to get those, 2 Vanillas, Mint, Raspberry, and Blueberry to complete my Bizu Box of 8.

Yoshinoya Philippines New Menu Picks!

There are 8 new Yoshinoya dishes in Manila for all fans out there! I missed Yoshinoya in my recent Japan trip but it's okay. Haha. I'm not sure if I can get my Yoshinoya Yakiniku Beef quick fix there anyway. I just found another Yoshinoya winner. I don't eat chicken very much but I like the Tokyo Chicken!

Photography School in Manila for Beginners

I was around seven when I received a yellow Snoopy camera for my birthday and it was one of the happiest days of my life because I believed I was good at photographing. My childhood notion came with undeniable proof - in my mind, I was the designated one during family events and I held my dad's camera the most. Then as I grew up, the bubble burst. I was at a loss when J gave me my GF1 and I would cringe at the mention of aperture, shutter speed, ISO, metering and many other foreign words. An opportunity came along for a short course on Basic Photography with Cosmopoint International Institute of Technology (CIIT) in Quezon City. I knew that if I learn a thing or two and practice A LOT, I could actually produce pictures that tell stories.

Unlimited Chocolate Buffet in Manila!

Drool, drool, drool... Drooling while making this post. You can find Belgian chocolate clusters, chocolate truffles, chocolate cakes, chocolate fondue, a chocolate painting and a chocolate chef in a place called The Chocolate Room in Marriott Cafe. You'll find this and more included at the Marriott Hotel Manila Sunday Brunch!

The Marriott Hotel Manila Sunday Brunch

Tomorrow is Sunday and it is mostly reserved for foodie adventures and spending some time with the family. Our favorite buffet place is at Sofitel Spiral but it is currently closed down for renovations. It's very timely that the Marriott Hotel Sunday Brunch came along. It is nearer to our location and I can say that the Marriott Cafe buffet selection was good and extensive. People go gaga over their Chocolate Room and drinks are already included (ehem, cocktails are available at the minibar *wink!).

Radio Frequency Treatment and Mariko Jet Peel

I went to the Mariko Skin & Body Center a few weeks ago to try out their treatments. Their tag line Hindi Mahal Magpaganda was quite enticing to me and one of their branches happened to be in the Greenhills area.

Mercato Schedule Extended!

If you get hungry on a weeknight, where would you go? I get a high whenever it is a Friday or a weekend because I know there's Mercato Centrale, Midnight Mercato, Banchetto, Saturday markets like the Legaspi Market and other Sunday markets and they have been sprouting one by one in the metro. I was hoping they would cover some more weeknights so that I won't have to wait that long. Haha. Fortunately, they want to change the night scene in Manila for foodies like me and hungry after-party gimmickeros.
