Rebecca's Revenge: A Chilling Sequel to Rebecca's Room @MysteryManila

Read More: Here are... 10 Most Fun Activities in Manila (2016 Edition)! @TourismPHL

“Rebecca’s Revenge” is the second installment of the original “Rebecca’s Room”, a horror-inspired Mystery Manila Room centered on the curious disappearance of Rebecca Rubio. In this sequel, you play a group of Spirit Questors that attempt to solve the mystery behind Rebecca’s vengeful spirit.

Mystery Manila is simulated puzzle experience that can be played by up to 6 people. You and your friends strain your brains to solve a mystery by carefully piecing together complex clues under a challenging, but exciting time constraint of 1 hour.

This room was quite challenging, yet exhilarating. It takes some abstract thinking to solve, which makes the game all the more worth it!

Reversed Reality: Inside the head of Enigma the Psychopathic Killer @MysteryManila

Read More: Here are... 10 Most Fun Activities in Manila (2016 Edition)! @TourismPHL

Reversed Reality takes place within the head of criminal mastermind, Enigma. Inside his head are his plans to destroy the world and you are tasked to find them in 60 minutes. Each plan is represented by a puzzle piece, which the team has to put together before the hour is over.

We liked the concept of this room, as everything inside it was…reversed! The game uses anamorphic illusions, which requires players to really look at their surroundings to carefully gather clues.

BAR PINTXOS: Alabang's Secret Spanish Tapas & Pintxos Bar (A Review)

Bar Pinxtos-17.jpg

BAR PINTXOS is a neighborhood tapas and pintxos bar in the south, serving Catalan/Basque food by Miguel Vecin and Tinchu Gonzalez.

There are no signs going to this place so it's a bit hard to find. People come here for the authentic Spanish food and to hang out with friends over drinks. We thought it would be a dark bar type of place but it was surprisingly family friendly.

Our family tried it together with my wife's cousin Pam of Risa Chocolates, who introduced us to Bar Pintxos. Here's what we think...

PORTOBELLO BAKERY's Queso de Bola Ensaymada #UTT2015Winner

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay)

With the holidays fast approaching, there's this distinctive cheese found in supermarkets that signal that Christmas is indeed fast approaching. The cheese Queso de bola is characterized by it's salty after taste. As the cheese ages, it becomes more crumbly, sweeter and gives out a stronger flavor of the cheese.

Foodies enjoyed Portobello Bakery's soft and fluffy Ensaymada topped with grated queso de bola, sugar then brushed with mildly sweet butter.

It's quite cheesy, with a generous amount of tangy queso de bola sprinkled on top. It's very light treat with just the right amount of sweetness. The holiday-themed pastry would become a great substitute from the usual gifts.

Congratulations Portobello Bakery for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test!
