Lechon Diva x Sumilon-13.jpg

Dedet de la Fuentes, popularly known as The Lechon Diva, successfully introduced Pepita's Lechon to Cebuano's and Boholanos via the annual celebration of Pasko sa Bluewater. This event kicks off the Christmas celebration and celebrates the founding anniversary of Bluewater Resorts.

beers-cover2

For the first time ever, the Yuchengco museum held its first craft beer event. Last October 20, Blues and Brews @ the Y showcased the top local craft beers for just one day.

ArtBGC 2017: Awesome Murals by Champions of Passions! (and Where to Find Them?)

ArtBGC2017-24

Bonifacio Global City has always been a huge advocate of public art. The beauty of public art is in its accessibility. It’s not confined to a gallery or enclosed in a museum. People from all walks are given the chance to witness and appreciate art as part of their daily lives.

This year, through the help of Pinto Art Museum, BGC worked with individual artists and artist groups such as Solana Perez, BISKEG Art Collective, and John Paul Antido to paint their passion on various locations.

Here’s a quick tour of the new murals around BGC…

The SPIDER HOUSE Boracay Sunset Session! (A REVIEW)

Bora 2

Spider House Boracay used to be one of the island's best-kept secrets, but through word-of-mouth, the place has become very popular. It used to be just a family residence, but tourists kept stumbling upon the place, so the owners decided to open it to the public.

The resort is located at Diniwid Beach, a 30-minute walk from White Beach. It is a far cry from the busy Station 1 of Boracay; this place is meant for relaxation. Most vacationers come here to enjoy a different view of the Boracay sunset.

Here’s what we loved at Spider House…
