Travelog: Rome Sights in a Day? Doable!

I was in Roma for the weekend, which actually coincided with the canonization rites of 2 great Popes in the Vatican, although I didn’t get the chance to attend the ceremonies (it was nearly impossible to get in at the last minute). I was hoping for good weather but throughout the time I was there,...

Food & Travel: Giando in Hong Kong

Yes, I am back in the city that makes everyone feel unproductive enough, Hong Kong! Hahaha, it’s true– every single time that I am in Hong Kong, I feel like I have to rush, rush, rush. Everyone seems to be rushing to go somewhere. It came to a point when even I found myself running...

Travelog: The Orchard, Beijing

Located in Shunyi (on Hegezhuang Village, Cuigezehuang Township) just on the outskirts of the cosmopolitan part of Beijing, The Orchard is something of a revelation– at least to me.

Apologies that I have not updated the blog for two days– every night we come back from our day trip has left me so tired! In the past two days after my last post, we’ve been to Asakusa temple, Sanrio Puro Land, and Lego Land in Odaiba (Odaiba was so beautiful at night by the...

February is really filled with fun events and I look forward to 1 of them– the Mandarin Oriental, Manila’s Chinese New Year event!  I had earlier missed the press lunch for the event which will be held on February 9 and was unable to listen in on Master Chao’s prediction excerpts for the upcoming Year...

Things To Do in Switzerland

Ok, to be honest, I used to think there was nothing to do in Switzerland– especially if you don’t really indulge in winter sports (hello, because you live in the tropics and oh yeah, there is no snow for you to learn how to ski or snowboard). But then now that I’m in the land...

Hennessy X.O Mathusalem by Arik Levy

A beautifully styled and remarkably good dinner at The Peninsula Manila was how the Hennessy X.O Mathusalem, was introduced.

Jean- Michel Cochet, the maison’s brand ambassador, flew in for the unveiling of this truly special...

I was guaranteed to have excellent food, and had a wonderfully entertaining company for lunch! Also had the pleasure of sitting across from architect Chito Antonio, who is...
