AQUA PLANET Pampanga Reboot: Better Food with Air-conditioned Cabanas!

So happy to be back at the new and improved Aqua Planet with the boys.

After they closed the park for a reboot, they now have better food, air-conditioned cabanas and better safety standards for the rides. You’ll love it!

SHAKE SHACK Philippines: Menu, Prices and PH Exclusive Items!

Shake Shack Ph will open on May 10!

Here are the prices, menu, and exclusive items at the first Philippine Shake Shack located in Central Square BGC!

Not only are we excited with the food, the reasonable price points, but also the Philippine exclusive items! From Ube Shakes, Calamansi Limoneade and of course the yummy ube and calamansi pie concretes!

Shake Shack founded by Danny Meyer has been around since opening in 2004 in New York City and probably is best known for the cult following of its burgers and frozen custard shakes. It’s slow fast-food, so expect big flavors, and a pretty pricey bill not like your usual Mc Donald’s order. That’s mainly because they serve quality 100% Angus beef burgers.

Check out our top favorites…

Fly to Bangkok with the Love Bus A350! @flypal

Forty years ago, Philippine Airlines unveiled its most innovative plane at that time, the Airbus A300B4 proudly bearing the Love Bus “kiss mark” logo.

So fittingly, during PAL’s 5th anniversary, it is yet again another exciting time to fly with the revival of the Love Bus—the same iconic logo placed on their 5th ultra-modern A350 Airbus!

But what makes the A350 so special? The next-generation A350 incorporates a range of technological touchstones that improve both passenger experience and aircraft operations aboard long-haul routes. It is installed with more quiet Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines, the most fuel-efficient engines in service today. With its extra wide body, personal tv screen, free inflight wifi and heartfelt Pinoy hospitality, you’ll definitely fall in love with flying over and over again.

Airbus A350s currently offer business, premium economy and economy seats. Here’s my experience on the A350…

MATSUMOTO CASTLE: Guide & Tips for Tourists!


It’s Japan’s oldest castle!

Matsumoto Castle is one of the five castles designated as National Treasures of Japan. It’s over 400 years old, making it the oldest castle donjon remaining in the country.  Unlike many palaces in Japan, its original structure was, fortunately, not bombed during WWII. That’s why it was able to keep most of its original wooden donjons and walls intact.

It is nicknamed as the “crow castle” for its contrasting color of black and white. It’s currently my favorite castle in Japan because I find it exceedingly rare to find a Japanese castle so well preserved in its original state.

It’s my second time visiting the famed attraction and here are some tips that I wished I knew on my first visit…

Matsumoto Castle Entrance: 
4-1 Marunochi, Matsumoto-shi, Nagano
Saturday (8:30 AM ~ 5:0 PM)
Sunday (8:30 AM ~ 5:0 PM)
Weekdays (8:30 AM ~ 5:0 PM)

Luckily, we were able to uncover this almost perfect and hidden gem that is just a few hours away from the city and is fairly inexpensive to travel to.
