8 Tips for an Awesome Ultimate Taste Test 4.0: The Beer Pairing Experience

Ultimate Taste Test 4 (Final Banner)

Also supported by: Oishi logo What you should Know about diabetes 

We are excited about one of the biggest events of Our Awesome Planet (OAP) and MASED Foundation, in partnership with San Miguel Lifestyle Brews -- The Ultimate Taste Test 4.0! About 1,000+ foodies will taste and critique food offerings from 52 suppliers showcasing the latest foodie delights in Manila. :)

In November 2009's Ultimate Taste Test 3.0 (with 30 suppliers), some foodies started eating like it was a buffet, so even with just the first few food suppliers, they were stuffed already. Once you feel stuffed, the rest of the taste test event would most probably be ruined for you -- we don't want that to happen.

The key is to pace your tummy, carefully choose which supplier to test based on your interest, and accept that it would be impossible for you to taste all the offerings of the 52 suppliers.

To help you along, here are:

Bird Watching Trip with the Boys @ Nuvali

Bird Watching @ Nuvali-2

We want Aidan and Joshua to appreciate nature as early as possible, so we went on a Bird Watching trip in Nuvali. We went with the Wild Bird Club of the Philippines (WBCP) to check out the bird watching places in the area.

One of the most interesting bird watching sites is the colony nest of the Bee-Eater Birds. It is just right past the first security guard outpost and way before the Bird Sanctuary. There are no signs leading to it. You can spot the colony nest by looking for the holes on the side of the hill.

Legally Blonde The Musical in Manila!

Legally Blonde 

The second half of the 2010 Theater Season in Manila is getting exciting. Nikki Gil (of Coke commercial fame) plays the role of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde The Musical in Manila! The show is an adaptation of the Hollywood movie starring Reese Witherspoon. In case you haven't watched the film, the story is basically about Elle Woods' transformation from a frivolous sorority star to a Harvard Law student as she pursues the love of her life who dumped her for a more "serious" girl.

Thunderbird Roars

Thunderbird Roars Swimming Finally-153Thunderbird Roars Swimming Finally-37

Thunderbird Resort is the best resort in the La Union area. It is located in Poro Point Freeport Zone, San Fernando, La Union (about 6 hours away from Manila). This is quite near the La Union airport and about 30 minutes away from the popular San Juan Surf Resort (for those interested in surfing).

The place created a buzz when it opened because it was the first to provide a Santorini-themed resort -- ahead of Bellarocca. Unlike Bellarocca, which is located on an island, Thunderbird is part of the La Union mainland and is easily accessible by car. Also, the resort has a decent Mediterranean restaurant called Olives, which makes up for its so-so buffet breakfast.

For the first time, we brought all the boys on a road trip to Thunderbird. I would like to share with you our Thunderbird experience...
