Dessert bites, creations by Chef Jakie Laudico

Chef Roland Laudico carefully scooped the remaining yoke and separated it from the embryo. He then made a paste out of these two ingredients. The egg white, on the other hand, was cut into thin strips and were tossed around the savory paste. On a shot glass rimmed with salt, Chef Lau collected the balut juice, and then mixed it with local vinaigrette. This novel creation is called Balut Napoleon Read more

Huawei behind portrait photography workshop

How do you take photos? With the general availability of handy cameras, most of us point our lenses to something, and then, with a click, we capture that something so easily. We then post the photo on our preferred social media timelines and allow reactions to accrue. For enthusiasts, photography is a way more than that.

Manggahan Festival Guimaras

Getting to Guimaras is an awfully long journey from Cebu. The two lengthy bus rides and the three rough see crossings discouraged my friends from joining. It was a rushed and spontaneous travel spree, so plane tickets were unjustly expensive. Eventually, only two of the more than five interested pushed through with the tour.

Travelers and tourists flocked the boulevard to get a slot of the first batch of boat departures, which at that time, ran out really fast. It was still six in the morning, yet the dispatcher’s booth was overwhelmed with the swarm of excited as well as incited individuals. We were fortunate to be the first ones on the queue.

Biri, Northern Samar: Bel-at Tidal Pool

Being stressed and angled for minutes, my elbow pit had started to feel uncomfortable. My palms were itching too, yet I couldn’t let go of my grip. I could also feel my calf and feet trembling, but resting them was not among the choices. For some reasons, commuting was pretty difficult on that part of Samar on Holy Week. I was hanging at the back of the jeepney, breaking a Read more

Baler has become really popular lately. Many show interest in visiting Aurora’s capital anytime soon. And when you travel, one of the things that you need to secure weeks prior your visit is your accommodation. Hence, I created a list hotels, resorts, and homestays where you can choose from. Learn from me. When I decided to visit Baler, I immediately searched online, and then contacted hotels and lodges just five days Read more
