After three long years, it seems that I'm back to blogging.
I have been MIA (my apologies) but I am now trying to make time to update my blog.
I will be posting my journey for the last three years :)
Be back soon,

My high school friend, Vicky, finally arrived in Manila after a year of working in Saudi Arabia. Since it's a weekday, I rendered a half-day leave in the office just to accompany her before her flight to Cebu in the afternoon. We went to the nearest mall from my place - SM Megamall.
I was trying to check for a new restaurant for us to dine when we chanced upon Gumbo located in SM Megamall Atrium. We were greeted by a girl in a cute head dress and she served us a complimentary loaf of bread while waiting for our order.
They have generous servings of the meals that's totally good for sharing. The food was great and the sea foods in the Jambalaya were fresh. Hats off to Gumbo!

My blogger idol, Anton Diaz, is part of the organizing committee of Mercato Centrale.
Gotta share with you several pics on my first Mercato Centrale visit.

Last May 14, we went to Mercato Centrale with college friends and a traumatic incident happened. I don't really know how it started but it seemed that while we were busily chatting, my friend's laptop bag hidden under the table got stolen. We immediately reported the incident to the security but the 'mysterious guy' is nowhere to be found. It was really a sad day for all of us. Hope this will serve as a lesson to everybody to be extra careful with your valuables when visiting weekend markets.
I'm sooo in love with Mercato Centrale and I can't wait to be back there soon...

I want to make a separate post for my experience at Radisson Blu Hotel (Cebu City). Last December, my family checked in one of their business suites and it was an entirely memorable stay.
This is a fairly new hotel which opened last September 2010. It's highly accessible since it's located right beside SM City Cebu. The interior design was well-planned not to mention the designs were exquisite.

Wow. It's been a year since I last visited my blog. Really sorry. There were just too many things to juggle - work and home related that I didn't have enough energy to write.
But, looks like I'm back. So expect that I'll be updating my blog as often as possible.
So, what did I do for the last year or so? I'll be giving you some neat stories of what I was up to.
READY? (Warning: Expect a photo heavy post. ooppss.. Sorry)
August 2010 - I, together with my former officemates at IBM, traveled to the City of Smiles (Bacolod City).
It was an awesome trip. We were all excited and giddy to try what they're known for -delish food. And we were not disappointed. I finally tried the famous Calea cake and chicken inasal. Boy, it was totally worth every penny. Aside from food-tripping, we stayed overnight in one of their white sand resorts. Totally relaxing. See some of our pics below.
