I love Chinese lauriat celebrations! I think this is a beautiful Chinese family tradition where everyone shares a communal feast on a roundtable with everybody wearing red to bring good luck to the celebrant.
We don’t have it in my Filipino family and I married my wife so that we can eat Chinese lauriats every time there is a birthday celebration.
My wife’s family often celebrates at Causeway because everyone enjoys the food— good variety and good value for money.
Here’s what we love about the Chinese lauriat at Causeway…
Yup, you got that right—15 hours only! Starting October 29, 2018, PHILIPPINE AIRLINES now flies non-stop to New York onboard their newest and most modern aircraft of its generation, the Airbus A350!
This, they say, is the second to the longest non-stop flight next to Singapore Airlines, and it’s the fastest way from Manila to the Big Apple with no more stopovers via Tokyo or Taipei, unlike my experience before that took 22 hours of travel time.
Plus, foodies flying out to New York with PAL, who want to enjoy authentic American steak, do not have to wait before landing to indulge their craving as business class passengers on the non-stop flights to New York will experience top global brand Wolfgang’s Steakhouse gourmet quality steak dinners on board.
Among my favorites in PAL’s prime New York route’s mouthwatering menu were Wolfgang’s Fillet Mignon, Striploin Steak, Grilled Chilean Seabass, French onion soup and the glorious New York Cheesecake.
It was definitely an upgrade experience for passengers flying to New York in Business Class! Check out the new extra wide body Airbus A350…

Vatos Urban Tacos is a Korean-Mexican restaurant founded by three Korean-Americans – Sid, Kenny, and Juweon. Vatos is the union of the food they grew up with – Korean food at home and Mexican food from the neighborhood. Originating from Korea, Vatos first expanded to Singapore, and then the Philippines.
Social Media used to be a very different place. For an instance, back in 2009, people simply used Facebook to communicate with friends, reconnect with estranged grade school buddies, or to keep in touch with a grandma who lives overseas.
But with Facebook’s present landscape of 2.23 Billion active users, social media has truly evolved into something more. It’s no longer just a tool for simple communication, it has become a powerhouse for influencing businesses, reaching audiences, and cool marketing tactics.
Social Media’s continuous growth open lots of opportunities more than we can keep up with. Luckily, a pool of passionate people thought of putting together a conference that can further the discussion on social media, technology, and digital marketing.
It was awesome to experience my first river cruise along the Danube River in Eastern Europe with an awesome group of top travel agents from Manila. It’s like staying in a floating hotel, cruising from one town to another while having a lazy champagne breakfast or just chilling on the sundeck or in the comforts of your stateroom.
It’s a lot better than going on an Ocean Cruise because it can dock directly beside the city and you just literally walk into town. The experience is all-inclusive—walking tours from a local guide and eat-and-drink-all-you-can breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Here are the details of the actual Danube River Cruise that we took. There were changes in our itinerary because of the low river level due to a long drought during the European summer season. We had to go by land from Budapest to Vienna and board a different Avalon ship, missing Nuremberg, Germany.
THE BLUE DANUBE DISCOVERY
Deluxe 7-night cruise from Budapest to Nuremberg in an outside stateroom with Avalon’s exclusive Comfort Collection Beds.

Kam’s Roast Ph has a secret menu! It’s Pei Pa Duck marinated with 25-year aged orange peel, then butterflied and bathed in oil. The result? An extremely super crispy skin, with meat juicy and tender with fat, that’s bursting with flavor!
Kam’s Roast is an internationally-acclaimed and Michelin-starred restaurant in Hong Kong popular for their HK roasts. In Hong Kong, Kam’s roast is best known for their goose, but given the constraints of importation of poultry from China, Kam’s Roast Ph serves something close to roast duck, which is just as flavorful and succulent, especially when it comes with my favorite plum sauce.
Foodee Global Concepts, the group behind Tim Ho Wan, Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodle, and Todd English Food Hall is responsible for bringing the famous roasts to Manila.
The newly opened Hilton Manila brings in Hua Ting, a Chinese restaurant with a focus on Shanghainese cuisine. Hua Ting – Brasserie Chinoise is one of the few Chinese restaurants in Manila to offer this.. Shanghai cuisine focuses on retaining the taste of the raw ingredients, and also emphasizes the use of condiments.
Hua Ting is inspired by Hua Ting Road in the Old Shanghai famed for its row of Shanghainese restaurants. See what’s in store for you at Hua Ting…
