Mooon Cafe

[ad#body-big]
That’s Mooon with three O’s. That’s what makes it unique. Their first branch was in Guadalupe and the business has boomed. As far as I know, they already have 3 branches, the one in Guadalupe, IT Park, then another in The Terraces in Ayala Center Cebu.

Siam Restaurant On Jehan’s Birthday

[ad#body-big]
It was my friend Jehan’s birthday last October 21. We actually planned to meet up for coffee but since it was nearly 6pm, the coffee date became a dinner date with parents. It was a happy night for my best friend who I haven’t seen and talked for more than a decade. We met in Butuan City when I was five and she was six. We were inseparable then but my family moved to Cebu City when I was 13. The communication was brought to a halt but it continued when we met again in Manila just this year. The friendship never changed a bit. It’s as if the years of separation were only minutes.

We dined at Siam Restaurant in The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu. I learned that Jehan’s family are frequent diners here. Food must be great here.

A.C. RUMPA Restaurant In Pampanga

[ad#body-big]
It was my first time in Pampanga and I heard that Kapampangans are the best cooks. They say, If you’re planning to have a restaurant business in Pampanga especially in Angeles City, the business will not last if the food you serve isn’t really good. You really have to compete with all the other restaurants in Angeles City.

That time we were there in Angeles City, We dined in this restaurant in Surla Street called A.C. RUMPA. RUMPA stands for Retired US Military Personnel Association. It’s one of the best restaurants in Angeles City, Pampanga. They serve big parts of meat, veggies on the side, and a choice of potato wedges, mashed or white rice. The iced tea there is superb and they pour it in cute little jars.

Kape Ti Musang and Kape Milo is touted to be the world’s most expensive coffee at P14,000/kilo as compared to P150-300/kilo of usual Philippine Coffees. The coffee beans are “harvested” by wild cats in the rainforests in Benguet and Mindanao and is known by different local names but generally called Kape Ti Musang. Now, coffee aficionados can get a free taste of this popular and sensational coffee at COFFEE ORIGINS, the annual coffee festival of the Philippine Coffee Board.

Arroceros Forest Park

[ad#body-big]
Arroceros Forest Park is a bit of land beside the Quezon Bridge and Pasig River, and across LRT Central Terminal Station. You might have heard about it from the new Echo-Kristine soap “Dahil May Isang Ikaw” on ABS-CBN. Echo’s character waits every day for Kristine’s character on the bridge of that park . It’s their supposed meeting place after being separated since childhood.

My Favorite Travel Photo

[ad#body-big]
(This post is my entry to lagawan.info‘s anniversary contest)

This photo was not taken by me. It was actually taken by a friend who shared my passion for photography. This photo has become my logo for my website discoveringpinas.com. This photo is very memorable to me because it was my first time to travel alone without parents or friends. I’ve never traveled alone before and this trip became an adventure for me. I just met this old friend through a social-networking site and invited me to go to Camiguin Island for the holy week. I never had any second thoughts on what may happen on my trip or if my parents will get mad at me for this decision. I thought that I was on the right age to travel alone and do what I really want in my life and that is to visit new places and discover historical facts. I was really fascinated with the island. The stories about Mt. Hibok-Hibok and the sunken cemetery awakened my curiosity for historical facts.So I practically used most of my month’s salary for this trip which was a big deal because I was getting a real big sum of money back then. As I look back and think of what I did, I’d still use all my money for that trip. Man, Camiguin has a mystical charm on me. :D
