Here’s a chance to be part of the first ever Lio Beach Festival in El Nido, Palawan this coming June 9-11, 2017.

NONIE’S: Seriously Delicious Healthy Food in Boracay! (A Review)

HSnonie28
One of the newest additions to Boracay’s latest wave of trendy restaurants and eateries, NONIE’S aims to bring delicious and healthy food options to a culinary landscape that is seriously lacking.

The items on their menu have been carefully crafted with health and wellness in mind. Their take on Filipino classics incorporates healthy cooking techniques that make their food new and exciting but also familiar.  

Vegan and vegetarian items are available and they also specialize in a variety of freshly made smoothies and cold-pressed juices.

 

HSnonie24

Owned and operated by Shria and Patrick Florencio, the newlyweds have invested everything they have into this venture, having walked away from the corporate world to try their hand at their own business.

Their vision is to not only run a great restaurant with quality food, but to also be a socially responsible organization that gives back to the local community.

The restaurant is named after and is a fitting tribute to Patrick’s mother, Cenona Florencio, or Nonie for short.

LAbor UNION Festival 2017

Music, art, and surfing collide in LAbor UNION Festival 2017!

Inspired by Aklan’s LaBoracay, the festival brought three days of non-stop partying over the recent Labor Day weekend in the Philippines’ surfing capital of the north, La Union.

The revival of the 2015 festival ushered in live music from iconic Filipino talents such as Barbie Almalbis, Kevin Toy’s, and Hilera, which had the beaches of San Juan flowing with good vibes.

Proceeds from the non-profit event went to the conservation of the Pawikan and to helping the indigenous groups of Northern and Southern Cordillera known as the Kankanaeys.
