Visiting Bacolod City won't be complete without having a trip to The Ruins in Talisay City. Built by the Sugar Baron Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson in 1911 as a testament to his ill-fated love Maria Braga. The Hacienda has garnered the nickname the "Taj Mahal" of Negros.

We loved that it holds many interesting tales and facts within it's concrete walls. Here are some tips on how to maximize your trip to The Ruins…

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

Homegrown and locally harvested in Bicol, pili nuts are becoming a favorite nut of the Filipinos. We like the chewy texture and generous amount of nuts in each bar. The healthy walnut version is also recommended.

This homemade recipe which used to be a family dessert is now becoming a part of Filipino desserts. It's a yummy bite size dessert perfect for gifts during the holidays.

Congratulations Lolita's Nut Bar for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test!

The GAGGAN Experience in Manila! #GagganCrossCultures by @CherylTiu @VaskManila

(Watch the Gaggan Experience in Manila)

Gaggan in Manila is a collaboration dinner with Chef Chele GonzalesGallery Vask and the second Cross Cultures dinner organized by Cheryl Tiu

I met Chef Gaggan Anand for the first time in Singapore, when he won the #1 Spot in Asia's 50 Best Restaurants, and a second time in London, when he won the #10 Spot in World's 50 Best Restaurants.

But this is the first time I've tasted his food and gotten to experience his culinary philosophy. It was also Gaggan's first time in Manila learning about Filipino culture through our food and ingredients.

CRUPCAKE is a croissant and cupcake hybrid created by Sonja, which looks like a circular croissant with filling–think of it as a crusty cream puff. The crupcake is coated with sugar and resembles a cupcake ensaymada.

It's another brilliant innovation by Sonja, now available at the Cupcakes by Sonja flagship store at Serendra.

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!
