Baguio is best known as the summer capital of the Philippines, and it continues to be one of the most favorite destinations of every Filipino traveler because of its cool, chilly weather all year round.
On my fourth trip to Baguio, I stumbled upon a relatively new and inexpensive hotel that still reflects the traditional Cordilleran culture and design that Baguio is known for.
MOS has a burger perfect for our rice loving country…
MOS Burger is a popular homegrown Japanese burger chain famed for its unique burgers. It is Japan’s second largest fast food franchise, just behind McDonald’s. Their menu is not like that of your typical standard fast food chain with hamburgers, fries and hot dogs. Instead of having a bun made of bread, you find one made of Japanese rice—the perfect synergy of East and West!
While most of us might assume that it’s a burger joint owned by Mo’s, it’s actually an acronym for “Mountain, Ocean and Sun,” meaning as tall as the mountain, with a heart as big as the ocean and an undying passion like the sun. It currently has over 1,700 locations throughout Asia, Australia and you can find the first Philippine branch at Robinsons Galleria.

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

Hong Kong’s mango dessert expert Hui Lau Shan opens its Philippine flagship store in SM Megamall on March 23!
Hui Lau Shan 許留山 is a household name in Hong Kong globally known for their 200+ innovative dessert creations and refreshments using Philippine carabao mangoes.
The first store started as a traditional herbal tea shop in the early 60s, selling herbal jelly and a variety of herbal teas, which are believed to provide Chinese medical health benefits. With their passion for innovation, they made a product breakthrough by adding the mango sago in the 90s, catapulting Hui Lau Shan to fame and earning them the title of Hong Kong’s Fresh Fruit Dessert Pioneer.
As a frequent flyer to Hong Kong, I found no difficulty spotting all the Hui Lau Shan shops located around the touristy spots. With over 300+ international stores in China, Malaysia, South Korea, Macau, Canada, Taiwan, Paris, Vietnam and Melbourne, it only makes sense that the Philippines should be part of the growing chain.
