https://youtu.be/JxF_x50snzo

Mystery Manila is a simulated game experience that challenges you and a maximum of 5 friends to bring out your inner Sherlock Holmes and solve a mystery within 60 minutes.

We tried one of Mystery Manila’s new room in Century City Mall called Virtual Voyage. We played the roles of being volunteers in an experimental program to test the boundaries of virtual reality. Unfortunately, the experiment went wrong and we needed to find a way to escape back to reality or forever be trapped in limbo.

Wonderfruit Festival 2015: Why You Should Go to Thailand’s Hippest New Festival? @wonderfruitfest

News-Get-involved

Wonderfruit, an international Music & Arts Festival set in Thailand's backpacker heartland Siam Country Pattaya. For 4-days, the festival grounds are transformed into a hippiefied new world with a focus on advocating creative cultures, eco-friendliness, and sustainable living. You could say, it has the same change-making concept as to Philippine's very own Malasimbo.

With its reputation of being sin city, you'd be surprised that Pattaya is far from that, with it's lush hills, creeks and well-manicured lawns reminding you of Coachella. Festival goers are to expect a fun-packed schedule with tons of exciting music line-up, yummy feasts, fitness classes, art workshops and nature activities stored for the whole family.

Here's what to expect during Wonderfruit's 4-days of festivities on December 17-20

Ultimate Taste Test

KUMORI: Hanjuku Cheesecake and The Krone! #UTT2015Winner

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

Foodies love the signature Hanjuku cheesecake by Kumori, the cheesecake is characterized as being light and fluffy, compared to the the American version that is dense and heavy.

The half-baked cheesecake with cream cheese center comes in a palm-size treat, they are best enjoyed when relished in small bites. Notice the mousse-like texture, it's a delightful treat nothing too sweet or too creamy.

I also like the Krone which is a combination of cones and croissants filled fresh daily with creamy custard in the store.

Congratulations for winning the top spot in Ultimate Taste Test 2015!
