When in Cebu, try Rico’s

Are you craving for scrumptious lechon while in Cebu? Then consider this a heads up: try dining at Rico’s. I’ve tasted a hundred version of the Pinoy’s revered succulent roasted pig, but when I’m in Cebu,  my gastronomic compass points me to Rico’s  Lechon restaurant.       Be careful, though, if you’re experiencing some… Continue reading When in Cebu, try Rico’s

Creamy Pork and Beans Pasta

These rainy days, I’m a lazy chef. Can’t get my creative juices out and just wish I can spend the whole day in bed snuggled under the pillows.

Lakbay Baguio: Café in the Sky and Sitio “La Presa”

I celebrated Father’s Day (sans my Dad who passed away in 2005) in Baguio’s famed Café in the Sky and Sitio La Presa. Actually it’s not part of Baguio City, but of Mt. Santo Tomas, in Tuba, Benguet. Living here for a few days, away from a hectic schedule and city buzz, makes one feel… Continue reading Lakbay Baguio: Café in the Sky and Sitio “La Presa”

Three Days of Trekking in Baler

My legs were burning by the time we were about to board the bus back to Manila. I didn’t know that trekking activities would dominate the most part of our 4-day itinerary in Baler, Aurora. I’ve heard it’s a perfect exercise but I really don’t like climbing. Had I known it, I would have prepped myself first but… Continue reading Three Days of Trekking in Baler
