Globe Laboracay Day 2 | Island Hopping | Sunkissed Boracay 2016

Our second day at Laboracay (May 1) was surprisingly very quiet and laidback. You’d think that after the hoardes of party goers at Zoukout, the beach would be filled with people and trash the next day but…. This photo was taken during lunch time and the beach front was almost empty! It’s probably because Labor Day fell on a Sunday so there’s no additional holiday. A lot of people had to catch a plane that day to make it in time for work on Monday. Look at how clean, beautiful and peaceful the beach was at noontime!! Perhaps people wereRead more

Globe Laboracay Day 1 | Kaskade @ Zoukout Boracay

This year’s Laboracay experience was far from last year’s. The beach was very clean and had way less people than the hoardes of party-goers in 2015. There was also little sea moss (lumot) visible, about 2 feet long at most, compared to last year’s thick bed of moss on the shore. They had to haul it out in garbage bags because it got smelly and visually atrocious to the tourists. Look at how blank the waters are! No people and trash around! You can compare photos from my LABORACAY 2015 blog entry to see what I mean. Just like theRead more

Boulangerie 22 French Fusion Bakery

Tired of all the mediocre pastries in town? This might just be the solution to your bored taste buds. Boulangerie 22 is the newest bakery in town that serves authentic French and Korean baked goodies. Sharing with everyone photos from their grand launch plus my store visit to the One Legaspi Park Makati branch last month. I just had to go back to try how their breads taste like on a random day. My friend Franco agrees that they have a really unique selection to offer to their customers. They’ve got ordinary toast, macarons to French normandy butter croissants, and chocolate financiers. The mimes wereRead more
