CRAYFISH PARTY 2019: Asia’s Biggest Viking Party! @SofitelManila

Transport back in time and feast like a Viking at the biggest Crayfish Party in Asia!

The Kräftskiva (Crayfish Party) is a traditional Swedish eating and drinking celebration, symbolizing the end of summer for Nordic countries, usually in August. The celebration is made complete with the serving of the sought-after delicacy, the Swedish crayfish. But what is crayfish? Crayfish, also known as freshwater lobster, is found in the Northern Hemisphere and is not native to Philippine waters, which explains why we’re not that familiar with it. Due to a plague that almost wiped out the crayfish population, a law has been made to prohibit the fishing of crayfish year-round except during the crayfish season that starts in August. This is the reason why the crayfish is rare and expensive.

Feast on bountiful servings of imported crayfish and Nordic spreads, drink free-flowing beer, dress in Viking costume and dance to the festive music with NordCham Philippines in partnership with Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila on September 14, 2019 at the Sofitel Harbor Garden Tent. Here’s what to expect from this year’s event…Read more

S Kitchen Sheraton Sunday Fiesta Buffet! @SheratonManila

Read first: Sheraton Manila Hotel: Secrets of Sheraton Staycation

After my Sunday Fiesta buffet in Sheraton, I knew this would be a perfect place to bring my balikbayan and international guests for a taste of Filipino cuisine but in a modern luxurious setting.

S Kitchen features a wide spread of international selections from East to West, but unlike other hotel buffets in Manila, its focal point is its Filipino station. You’ll love the Lechon de Leche stuffed with Paella, truffle kare-kare, homemade native delicacies and, of course, the “paluto station” that serves fresh seafood—crabs, shrimp, shells and even a whole lapu-lapu (grouper) cooked to your own liking!

Even the interiors of S Kitchen have a Filipino touch, from the traditional fish net inspired chandeliers to the Igorot-printed tiles.

Here’s what you’ll find at S Kitchen’s Sunday Fiesta Buffet priced at Php 2,500 only…

The District! The Best Boutique Hotel in Boracay

Even before its rehabilitation, Boracay has always been my favorite island in the Philippines.

I’ve been to this pristine island six times already but I just keep on coming back.

Apart from being the perfect beach getaway because of its breathtaking beach and crystal clear waters, this small island also has practically everything I need—from restos, to bars, to water activities, not to mention the array of hotels you can choose from to make your stay more memorable.

On my sixth sojourn to Boracay, I stayed in this newly renovated contemporary boutique hotel, The District. It’s conveniently located at the beachfront of Station 2 which is about a 5 min walk away from D’mall.

The District, for me, is by far the best modern boutique hotel for vacationers who want to stay at a convenient location without sacrificing their privacy. It has everything that you’ll ever need all in one place.

Join me as I discover what The District has to offer!
