Bong Velasco’s Three Sixty in A.Venue

360o Three Sixty is one of the best places for Chinese comfort food from Bong Velasco (the man responsible for the initial success of North Park and Bamboo Lounge in Boracay) and Michael Lim (the famous Chinese wedding host who has entertained 1,000+ weddings in his career).

 

Three Sixty is hidden on the second floor of A.Venue, near the escalators. It is a Chinese restaurant for lunch and one can immediately notice the similarity with North Park dishes. At night, it turns into a bar/ lounge with good food.

 

Don’t miss their signature desserts — Buchi Truffles and Buchi Ferrero Rocher!

The Best Pandesal in Manila is the Pandesal Since 1950’s by Pan de Amerikana. I’ve known this foodie secret for a while… We were serving this during our private Maven Secrets sessions and most of the people were asking us where we got our pandesal.

Here is the story of Pandesal Since 1950’s and Pan de Amerikana…

Tips on Getting To and Around Boracay – 2009

by Nowie,  Fruits in Ice Cream Summer Café, Boracay

1. Landing At Caticlan

While waiting for your bags  to be brought down from the plane, fill up the tourist information sheets  at the counter.. This will save you some time at the jetty port where it tends to be more chaotic.

2. Caticlan Airport – Jetty Port

If landing in Caticlan, another way to get to the jetty port from the airport is to simply walk. As you get out of the airport, you will have to turn right and make a u-turn when you reach the end of the railing. Walk to the end of the street and onto the highway where you will turn right. When you see the hardware store on the left, turn left on the road there and that will lead you straight to the jetty port. Alternatively, you can also flag down a tricycle at the highway for P7.00 per person.

Either way is cheaper than the P50/tricycle fee at the terminal near the airport!

Hop from one Children’s Book Store to the next

One of the favorite pastimes of kids is reading books. With the resurgence of Filipino children’s stories, our children are now exposed to more relevant and nationalistic themes.

Instead of watching TV, reading books is a bonding and interactive experience that your kids would rave about throughout their childhood.

The long holidays are fast approaching. During this time, Manila life slows down as most people travel out of the metro to see the different beaches and travel destinations in the country. This is the perfect setting for Manila to show you its beauty, usually hidden in the commercial activities and multitasking of everyday life.

It is also the best time to foster nationalism in the hearts of our children. Our kids live in a time when being Filipino is cool and more parents are deciding to stay in Manila rather than migrate to other countries. To love the Philippines, Manileños like us should start by appreciating our beloved Manila.

Here are top 5 ideas for exploring the beauty of Manila with our children…
