Grabbing pub grub at Pablo’s (restaurant review)

Another day, another invite from Zomato Philippines to try out a new restaurant. This time it’s a bar called Pablo’s Pub & Restaurant, and to be honest, I almost didn’t go. Sometimes I feel like I’m too old for places like this, but with a menu promising that it’s more than just a place where poor judgement is born of good alcohol and bad company, I headed for The Forum at Bonifacio Global City.

Tripping with Bridgeway Travel and Tours

I’d never gone on a tour alone before, so I went online and looked for a company that’ll take care of everything for me on my Bolinao/Hundred Islands tour. That’s how I found out about Bridgeway Travel and Tours. it was my first time arranging a tour with them, so naturally I searched online for people complaining about getting scammed by this company. I didn’t find any, so I went ahead and signed up.

Three YouTube channels you can pass the time with

These days, anyone can get their 15 minutes: all they need is a camera and a YouTube account. In most cases, I can’t really stand these channels; I don’t get how people become popular  taking videos of themselves reacting to something or playing pranks on each other, but that’s the nature of viral videos, I guess. It doesn’t necessarily have to make sense to gain a following.

From Likes to licks, according to Zomato (PR)

These days, people go by research and recommendation when it comes to deciding where to eat, and the wonderful world of the internet is making it a helluva lot easier to look up the best place to get whatever it is you’re craving for. I have to admit when I’m Jonesing for some cake, the first thing I do before sticking a fork in a slice coming from any food spot is go online and see what other people have to say about it first, and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone on this.

Ribs that RUB you the right way (restaurant review)

Our boss took us out for lunch recently at RUB Ribs and BBQ in Kapitolyo. It’s been a while since I’ve had good ribs, so I was really looking forward to this, especially since the boss claims it’s one of his family’s favorite go-to restos.

Tricking out some Halloween treats

My nephews didn’t get to go trick-or-treating this year, so I wanted to do something special for them. Now, I am by no means the arts-and-crafts person in the family (that would be my older sister). But since it’s Halloween and I didn’t want to just hand them a sad bag of sweets to make up for what they missed, I decided I’d try my hand at a bit of the cutting and pasting thing.

I will always be a big kid

I went to the park with my family some time ago. Going to a playground is something I hadn’t done in a while, so I couldn’t keep myself from testing how far up I could climb on the monkey bars and how high I could ride the swings before flying all the way to the emergency room.

Ramble on, Papa. Ramble on.

Five years ago today, I lost one of the most important people in my life. My dad not only raised me and my sisters to strive to be good people; he also influenced many of the things that made me who I am today.

An ode to coffee

I love coffee. Words can’t even express how infatuated I am with it. I can’t get through the day without at least 4 cups of it. In a mug or a cup, steaming or cold, black or creamed, I’ll take it morning, noon and night. I think I should form a new religion that praises the stuff.
