The Peak is a multi-level bar, music lounge and grill roof deck restaurant in Grand Hyatt in Manila. The concept is inspired by Penthouse Living with different homey rooms, set against the Manila Skyline backdrop, to discover.
This is the landmark restaurant Manila is waiting for, ushering us to 2019 and beyond. Here’s a sneak peek of The Peak…
I love Chinese lauriat celebrations! I think this is a beautiful Chinese family tradition where everyone shares a communal feast on a roundtable with everybody wearing red to bring good luck to the celebrant.
We don’t have it in my Filipino family and I married my wife so that we can eat Chinese lauriats every time there is a birthday celebration.
My wife’s family often celebrates at Causeway because everyone enjoys the food— good variety and good value for money.
Here’s what we love about the Chinese lauriat at Causeway…
Social Media used to be a very different place. For an instance, back in 2009, people simply used Facebook to communicate with friends, reconnect with estranged grade school buddies, or to keep in touch with a grandma who lives overseas.
But with Facebook’s present landscape of 2.23 Billion active users, social media has truly evolved into something more. It’s no longer just a tool for simple communication, it has become a powerhouse for influencing businesses, reaching audiences, and cool marketing tactics.
Social Media’s continuous growth open lots of opportunities more than we can keep up with. Luckily, a pool of passionate people thought of putting together a conference that can further the discussion on social media, technology, and digital marketing.
It was awesome to experience my first river cruise along the Danube River in Eastern Europe with an awesome group of top travel agents from Manila. It’s like staying in a floating hotel, cruising from one town to another while having a lazy champagne breakfast or just chilling on the sundeck or in the comforts of your stateroom.
It’s a lot better than going on an Ocean Cruise because it can dock directly beside the city and you just literally walk into town. The experience is all-inclusive—walking tours from a local guide and eat-and-drink-all-you-can breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Here are the details of the actual Danube River Cruise that we took. There were changes in our itinerary because of the low river level due to a long drought during the European summer season. We had to go by land from Budapest to Vienna and board a different Avalon ship, missing Nuremberg, Germany.

We feel honored to have witnessed the culinary evolution of Bruce Ricketts and we always look forward to tasting his passion on the plate.
Looking back at my archives, I realized we’ve covered almost all of our foodie moments with Bruce’s culinary creations like fanboys. We met him during his Food Truck by Chef Broosy days in 2012 before he retreated to BF after a failed stint at Robot. We have fallen in love with his food ever since.
It was awesome to have a taste of how a passionate culinary master would do a branded collaboration for the first time with Nespresso’s Master Origin coffee series. Aside from the memorable orgasmic creations, I learned a lot on how branded collaborations should be executed as a master would.
This is another story for the blogging history books, a living tribute to a culinary lodi in Manila.
What’s the common denominator between the most beautiful girl in the universe and the world’s oldest, most respectable and best-selling gin?
Both of them are world-class Filipino icons that value never-dying drive, true grit and the pursuit of excellence. So proud to have witnessed the coming together of two celebrated icons to commemorate the 185th anniversary of Ginebra San Miguel this 2019.
Here are a few things you may want to know about the famous gin and Ginebra Girl 2019—Ms. Pia Wurtzbach…

Aidan is at Grade 8 now and we are starting to consider options on where to send him to college. I like our sons to establish their roots in Manila, studying in the best university for Engineering, Computer Science and Multimedia Arts—De La Salle University.
Studying in the US was not really an option because I’m afraid of the values they’ll learn in school. We would have to go with them to reinforce the Filipino family values at home.
But I’m considering Spain for college or masters for our boys. Here’s why…
