Na-Engkanto sa Polilya

If you're one of those who was somehow exposed to folkloric stories or has gotten an appeal for it, then you're going to like this feature. But if you're both and also someone looking for a place in Poblacion that serves up artisan beers and grubs that could satisfy even a discriminating gourmand, then you'll make me your friend before you even finish reading this feature.

While the location and atmosphere comprise a hefty part of Polilya's initial appeal, every eatery lives and dies based on one simple factor. Yep, that’d be the food and sometimes the alcoholic beverages that keep the community alive.

YOUniversity Suites and L.A. Village: Where Hip and Heritage Convene

Photo credited from

Who would have thought that an old building along Recto was made anew and given a hip and modern vibe?

What happened to be an apartment just a shell for a long time with nothing but a decaying facade and rubbles in an open lot. This building known as Laperal Apartments, built in 1946, had been a witness to the rise of the post-war era and the glorious days of Manila, alongside many famous buildings and movie houses in Azcarraga (now known as C.M. Recto Avenue) and Avenida streets.

#IntheMoodFoodCrawl at Evia Lifestyle Center

Just like what Yotam Ottolenghi said, "Brunch, is an extended breakfast that should be enjoyed whenever you have time properly to engage in cooking and eating."  But gather together moms who love eating and socializing, brunch is given a whole new light.  It becomes an avenue for a blooming or even a lasting friendship.

As a mom, we work on multiple things all day long. You get in a rut and begin to feel like a hamster on a wheel. You don’t have to reach that point if you set aside some time to meet with a good friend and enjoy the company of others.  Thanks to Michelle Ressa-Aventajado and Sabrina Cristobal-Go of Mothers Who Brunch who gives value to fun gatherings.  

Social functions are great for well-being and prompt a cheery disposition and this duo definitely have the means to infect us with their creativity and light-heartedness. 

I've been to a couple of their well-managed brunch events and every time I attend, it gave me a sense of inspiration and well, meeting new like-minded moms tops it all.

When in Los Banos, Make a U-Turn at Kaeron's Cakes and Cafe

Know you're not alone. God is here for you. CHECK!
Stop worrying about what others think. CHECK!
Surround yourself with the right people. CHECK!
Learn from each blunder and actively develop better habits. CHECK! CHECK!

These are just some of the ways one can overcome self-doubt to be able to build a profitable business.  Most of us tend to assume that successful, confident people never have any doubts -- that they are decisive about every choice, never have regrets and always know what to do.

It’s Love at First Bite at Shang’s dining destinations


The month when we think mostly about love.  Just like what Henry Miller said, "The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough is love."

As the air of Valentine's celebration draws near, it's never too early to think of how we can give love and more.

Shangri La Mall had thought through to help us.  What better way to give love, love, that sharing a good meal, as this is said to be the best way to bond with people. Allow the delicious food offerings of several restaurants of the mall entice you to gather and think of love.
