The family is loving crabs these days and the best place to indulge in these is at Seascape Village paluto market.
We tried the crab and seafood feasts in two restaurants: Binondo’s Golden Fortune vs. Dampa’s Lola Ina’s. Here’s our experience.
First Things First
Seascape Village, which opened its first phase of the seaside mall with 13 Filipino/Asian paluto restaurants, is a mixed-use coastal development in the Manila Bay area located beside Sofitel and Manila Film Center.
Even before its rehabilitation, Boracay has always been my favorite island in the Philippines.
I’ve been to this pristine island six times already but I just keep on coming back.
Apart from being the perfect beach getaway because of its breathtaking beach and crystal clear waters, this small island also has practically everything I need—from restos, to bars, to water activities, not to mention the array of hotels you can choose from to make your stay more memorable.
On my sixth sojourn to Boracay, I stayed in this newly renovated contemporary boutique hotel, The District. It’s conveniently located at the beachfront of Station 2 which is about a 5 min walk away from D’mall.
The District, for me, is by far the best modern boutique hotel for vacationers who want to stay at a convenient location without sacrificing their privacy. It has everything that you’ll ever need all in one place.
Join me as I discover what The District has to offer!
During my recent #OneBHSEats food tour, most of the participants were raving about how good the steak was at Wolfgang’s. We recently visited the resto with the family for an awesome steak brunch experience in BGC.
Here are some tips on what to order from the menu, how much the items for consideration are and how best to enjoy the experience.
First Things First
Wolfgang Steakhouse BGC is the 3rd and flagship branch of the Wolfgang Zwiener joint venture with Raymund Magdaluyo in Manila.
Ideally, Wolfgang wanted to open first in BGC, but it took a while to find a perfect corner spot fronting a garden with a street view of Bonifacio High Street.
This is the best Wolfgang Steakhouse branch because of its young contemporary ambiance perfect for that NY-Steakhouse Brunch vibe in BGC.
It has all the classic Wolfgang Steakhouse elements: alabaster chandelier, mosaic tiles ceiling, wooden floors and chairs plus a touch of contemporary elements—cove lights, banana plants and floor to ceiling windows.
Having started as a humble yet revolutionary restaurant chain in Switzerland, Movenpick has since gone on to become one of the world’s most trusted and recognizable brands today. The Swiss chain, which has successfully branched into the hotel and resort business, has prime locations at some of the best destinations in the world.
Boracay is probably one of (if not) the busiest tourist destinations in SE Asia. Having won numerous awards for Best Island in the World, it’s a no brainer to find some of the world’s top resort chains here, carving out a name for themselves in a market that is incredibly competitive.
The world-class resort is perfect for families and anyone wanting to experience everything Boracay has to offer with the added bonus of privacy. Situated at what’s informally known as “Station Zero”, the world-class resort boasts the island’s largest pool, cutting edge health and wellness facilities, a number of restaurants and cafes and, to be quite frank, the island’s best pizza!
Plan your next stay at Movenpick Boracay and enjoy the quieter, more family-friendly side of the island.
I didn’t know what to expect when we watched this show. After the monologue, your mind was stimulated, but still it needed time to process the depth of storytelling and theatre artistry of Abner and the Black Canvas team.
This is the kind of show that we need to talk about now before another friend passes away.
It took me a few days to reflect on what it meant. It was approachable but profound, the kind that would touch your heart and change your perspective on the weight of every word we speak (and not speak).
I highly recommend that you do not miss the Pineapple Lab run, and I also hope that they have more and more theatre run extensions. (If you are watching the show, best to read this reflection after watching it.)
Here’s why you should watch #BlackCanvasWOW…
Weight of Words (WoW) PARC Foundation Blackbox on May 31 (8PM), June 1-2 (4PM & 8PM), and Pineapple Lab on June 15 (5PM & 8PM) and 16 (4PM & 8PM). For ticket reservations, contact Pineapple Lab at [email protected] or Ticket2Me at www.ticket2me.net Facebook Page: Black Canvas Hashtag: #BlackCanvasWOW

Aqua Boracay is the best Day Pool Club in Boracay not only because of its Pool Party events but because it serves one of the best Spanish-inspired beach cuisines by Chef Chele Gonzales of Gallery by Chele fame.
Most people miss out on Aqua because they think it’s an exclusive private club where there’s nothing to do if there are no pool party events. Some think it is closed for construction. What they don’t know is that this is, in fact, one of the best places to eat and enjoy a pool party in the New Boracay.
Here are the secrets of the best day pool club in Boracay…
First Things First
It is easily accessed via e-trikes (₱120 special trip) passing through the back end of Balabag Lake at the back of D’Mall.
The Day Pool Club is open but the rooms are still under construction.
What I like about Los Indios Bravos is that it features the signature pub food recipes of Chef Kenneth Cacho and Chef Norbert Gandler of ISCAHM fame while celebrating the best of all-Filipino Craft Beers (on tap), Brown and White Spirits of the Philippines at the same time. Most importantly, it pays tribute to “Los Indios Bravos”—the Brave Natives of the 1800’s, Filipino intellectuals and warrior-poets and the Tirol Family of Boracay Island.
Bong Tirol, Martin Jickain and wife Maggie Tirol established the new Los Indios Bravos hidden at the back of White House in the New Boracay.
We tried most of the food and drinks, and here are our favorites that you should not miss at the island’s best English pub…
