By Juanico Fernandez

Going to an Archery Range for the first time can be an overwhelming experience for anybody. It’s a new and fast-paced environment that requires you to go full-on right away, but once you get the hang of things, your body will keep on wanting more.

The name Kodanda is a Hindu Sanskrit word for "He who has a Bow". It was inspired by Hindu mythology that tells the story of The Great Rama who has a bow named Kodanda.

Vast green grasslands as far as your eyes can see, towering limestone cliffs, crystal clear waters, and beautiful landscapes that look out of this world. With access to all of these and more, it’s not hard to see why Batanes is on every Filipino's bucket list.

CAMP NETANYA: Santorini-inspired Resort & Spa in Batangas!

by Abigail Javellana

Camp Natanya

Camp Netanya Resort & Spa is a luxurious Greek-themed resort situated on the tropical paradise of Anilao, Batangas.

Here you can enjoy a little piece of Greece--soak in their pools, indulge in their Mediterranean fare, stay in their Santorini-inspired villas--all with a touch of warm Filipino hospitality.

We love the resort for its family friendly atmosphere, the amazing sunset view by the gorgeous infinity pool, their delicious food, its access to Anilao's world-class snorkeling and diving sites, the relaxing hike up Mt. Gulugod Baboy, and the fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. Did I mention, it's just about two hours away from Manila?

Here's a photo essay of our stay...

ZUBUCHON MAKATI: The Best Lechon Restaurant in Manila!? (A Review)

Zubuchon-50.jpg

ZUBUCHON is the Cebu-based Lechon Restaurant by Joel Binamira of Market Manila specializing in what Anthony Bourdain described as the "Best Pig... Ever!" The name is a coined word from "Zubu", the 18th century reference to the island of Cebu, and "Chon" from lechon, which means roasted pig.

The restaurant concept is inspired by native dishes dating back to the time when Magellan Landed in Cebu in 1521. Antonio Pigafetta, Magellan's Chronicler, mentioned the Filipino food during that time, which includes black pig, grilled seafood, millet and rice cakes, coconut in the form of water, milk, vinegar, and liquor.

Now, Metro Manila-based foodies can now taste the food Market Manila has been blogging about over the years. The place has actually been jam packed since it opened in Makati!

Had two lunch dates with Rache here and also got to chat with Joel about his new restaurant. Here's what we think...
