Taiwan for me is easily one of my favorite destinations in Asia. It has that distinct look and feels to it that reminds me of Hong Kong and Japan combined, yet it still manages to stand out among its Asian neighbors.
I remember visiting this tiny island nation that has a little bit of everything, from mountainous landscapes and beautiful beaches to a sprawling nightlife in the metropolis. Not to mention the incredible people you’ll meet along the way that makes Taiwan the perfect travel destination for Filipinos.
If you plan on visiting Taiwan but isn’t sure where to start or where to go, don’t worry–I’ve created a guide that will take you on a journey from capital city Taipei in the north all the way down to Kaohsiung City in the south.

Philippine Wrestling Revolution is the premier professional wrestling show in the Philippines featuring our very own Pinoy Wrestlers and a Live experience that will surely get you hooked into the storyline. PWR was founded last December 2013 with the aim to become the premier wrestling promotion in Southeast Asia.
We grew up watching WWF (now WWE) with our dad until there was a scandal that revealed that all the matches are scripted. After a while, you get to appreciate the wrestling matches like watching a theatrical wrestling show and you are on the edge on what will happen next.
I’ve always wanted to watch a live wrestling match and here’s what we think about PWR Live in Manila…

Gelāre, known for the best natural ice cream and waffles in Perth, Australia, opens its flagship All-Day Breakfast and Dessert Cafe in the cinema level of Uptown Mall. The name is an Italian word for the final step in the process of making ice cream which means “to freeze” or “congeal.”
The ice cream is prepared using real milk and cream, with real flavor and no artificial ingredients. It has a creamy smooth and dense (with less air) texture. The waffle is crunchy on the outside and has a good bite. The waffle & ice cream combination is irresistible.
We tried almost all the flavors and most items on the menu, and here are our favorites:
