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.

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!

THC (Truly Home-made Chips): Best Potato and Camote Chips in Manila! #UTT2015Winner

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

THC (Truly Home-made Chips) by Trisha is undoubtedly the best potato and camote chips in Manila made the artisanal way in small batches. The chips are thinly sliced, not too greasy and salty.

Using the THC acronym is coincidental and does not refer to its notorious meaning (tetrahydrocannabinol).

This is one of the best-kept secret potato chips in Manila and by order only when they make a fresh batch (P250/pack).

Congratulations to Trisha and THChips team for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test!
