IMPRESSIONS Sunday Brunch Buffet - A Foodie's Buffet Favorite :)


IMPRESSIONS by Maxim Hotel has an interesting Sunday Brunch buffet strategy -- they only have 3 stations (hot, cold, and dessert) that serve limited but high quality food using only the finest ingredients in the buffet.

Foodies love it because it is not overwhelming but satisfying, and you can savor each of the carefully curated item in the buffet by Chef Cyrille Soenen also known as Cicou. Also, foodies love the live stations where the food is only cooked or prepared upon order -- as many as you like.

Here are some tips to enjoy the Impressions Sunday Buffet and highlighting our favorites:

As the Mayan Calendar ends its 5,125 year-cycle, we continue to celebrate life and forever thankful for all the blessings we received in 2012.

It's never been this great to be in Manila during this Christmas Season. Manila is bustling in every corner of the Metro with festive buffets, innovative festivals and celebratory parties.

We welcome back Spiral at Sofitel, and welcome the new Spectrum at Raffles and Fairmont Hotel. Foodies kept on raving about Impressions, recognized as the Best Hotel Fine Dining Restaurant in the 2012 MBKRS Awards, for its ala carte and Sunday Brunch buffet.

Don't miss to experience the modern festivals in Manila -- SM Mall of Asia's The Grand Festival of Lights Parade, Cucina Andare's Food Truck Festival every weekend in Glorieta 3 Park, and the first ever Nuvali's Lantern Parade.

On New Year's Eve, you can choose to party at Makati's Official Countdown entitled, "One World. One Makati"; GMA 7's Official Countdown at SM Mall of Asia, or Eastwood City Countdown featuring Iyaz, Ely Buendia and Up Dharma Down.

On January 1, 1 AM, the party continues at 31 to 1. 100% Rockwell New Year Party!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all Our Awesome Planet Readers :)

BORACAY's White Christmas: 10 Never-Boring Experiences to Enjoy with your Kids!

Swimming in Boracay-27.jpg
This is the first time that we visited Boracay in December. I must agree with most that December is the best time to be in Boracay because the beach is whiter, the sky bluer and the ambiance cooler. Hence, this time is known as the Boracay's White Christmas.

It was also the first time for our three boys to experience the white powdery sand beaches of Boracay. But what can one do in an island (with kids) made more famous by its vibrant night life and adult-oriented activities?

Here are 10 Never-Boring Experiences to Enjoy with your Kids in Boracay:

Larcy♥s Cupcakery Cafe in BF!

Larcy's Cupcakery Cafe-6.jpg
As we were driving along Aguirre Street in BF Homes, Paranaque City, we couldn't help but notice the Larcy's Cupcakery Cafe that opened  this holiday season.

Ever since Sonja's Cupcakes opened in Sept. 2006, most of the bakers that specialized on cupcakes are either home-based or bazaristas, and no one has a full-blown bakery, and cafe with an all-day breakfast. 

"Who is Larcy?", I asked myself because I was impressed that she has opened with a wholistic-brand approach and focused on niche-marketing  - the "Cupcakery Cafe" concept.

Check out why Larcy's will be the coolest place for desserts and after-meal hangout in the BF area:
