CAMP NETANYA: Santorini-inspired Resort & Spa in Batangas!

Camp Natanya

Camp Netanya Resort & Spa is a luxurious Greek-themed resort situated on the tropical paradise of Anilao, Batangas.

Here you can enjoy a little piece of Greece–soak in their pools, indulge in their Mediterranean fare, stay in their Santorini-inspired villas–all with a touch of warm Filipino hospitality.

We love the resort for its family friendly atmosphere, the amazing sunset view by the gorgeous infinity pool, their delicious food, its access to Anilao’s world-class snorkeling and diving sites, the relaxing hike up Mt. Gulugod Baboy, and the fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. Did I mention, it’s just about two hours away from Manila?

Here’s a photo essay of our stay…

Unicef Children's Ball-43.jpg

For the first time ever, all of Asia’s Best Female Chefs were on the same stage to support the UNICEF Philippines Children’s Ball. The event aims to raise P10,000,000 for building One-Stop-Shop Centers for Children with Disabilities in Manila, Davao, and Cebu! 

It was a surreal affair, getting to taste the flavors of Bo from Bangkok, Gaita from Manila, Lenshu from Taiwan, and Vicky from Hongkong, all in one dinner for a good cause. 

Here’s a photo essay of the inaugural UNICEF Children’s Ball and how you can continue to support the cause of Children with Disabilities…

William Drew on What it Takes for Manila to be in Asia’s 50 Best List?

Inspiration behind Asia's 50 Best Restaurants

William Drew: "The inspiration behind Asia's 50 Best Restaurants, which was five years ago, was to celebrate, discover and showcase more Asian restaurants, through that more diverse Asian cuisines, because we realized that Asia, obviously a huge continent, has so many different styles of food and food cultures going on and for much of the world that wasn't as well known as it might be."

The World's 50 Best Restaurants. Since we had a certain number of Asian restaurants but then we knew there were many, many more that deserved to be celebrated. So we launched, in 2013, Asia's 50 Best Restaurants because there was nothing that was doing the whole of Asia, bring the whole of Asia together promoting that celebration and collaboration. And over the years, we built up a strong presence or a strong media following which is really gratifying and fantastic."

We're trying to do more and more events such as this 50 Best Talks which is not just about the ranking of the restaurants…

Anton Diaz:  Yes.

William Drew: …important though as that is. That's almost though a means of promoting more understanding of different cultures and cuisines, more diversity and more collaboration between chefs and different countries.

So in one sense, we've love taking ideas from all around the continent, and in another sense, there's a lot of people going back to their roots and rediscovering the traditional food of their country. The two can exist together.

Helping Hand Naturally Peninsula-8.jpg

We get invited to a lot of dinner events in Manila, but I was not expecting this kind of gathering of like-minded individuals in a different kind of networking.

I thought it was a PR event but it was not. You could sense that the intentions were sincere–to make a difference, promote sustainability, and help each other out.

Here’s a photo essay of the Sustainability Networking Dinner hosted by Janice Lao at The Peninsula Manila…

MISSIONARIES OF THE POOR: Encounter with Sabrina’s Kitchen and Easy Cures! (and how you can also help)

Missionaries of the Poor Manila-14.jpg

Missionaries of the Poor Manila is an international mission that started was in October 2011 by the Religious Institute of Brothers of Pontifical Right. 

It was founded by Fr. Richard Ho Lung, a former Jesuit priest, in the slums of Kingston, Jamaica in 1931. In the Philippines, they have three mission areas–Manila, Naga City (September 1994), and Cebu City (February 2004).

The Manila Mission is composed of the Divine Mercy Monastery where the Brothers live, and the Divine Mercy Apostolate Center in Manila, which is home to homeless elderly men and special-needs children.

They do corporal works of mercy: feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, caring for street children and the sick, including HIV/AIDS and leprosy patients, and visiting prisoners. 

Every Sunday, Sabrina Artadi of Sabrina’s Kitchen hosts a healthy feeding program for the poor in the area with her Super Caldo and fruits. 

Our friend Tina Vitas of Easy Cures invited us to join one Sunday, which was also very timely for our son Raphael’s 7th Birthday celebration.

Here’s our experience visiting the Missionaries of the Poor and how you can also help…
