Choobi Choobi Restaurant [CEBU Food Trip]

Saturday, November 12, 2016
It was almost lunch time when we arrived in Cebu during the Cebu Food Crawl with the Food Crew PH. Some of us are already starving, so, right after checking into our hotel and freshening up a bit, we went our merry way to the first restaurant stop of our first day in Cebu – Choobi Choobi Restaurant.

Choobi Choobi Restaurant has been in the business for quite a while. Good quality seafood, generous serving portion, and price tag that do no break the bank are some of the reasons why Choobi Choobi Restaurant is one of the most famous restaurants in Cebu.

Luisa Ridge Hot Spring Resort and Spa, Pansol Calamba, Laguna

Wednesday, May 25, 2016
When your folks started enumerating the health benefits of soaking your self into hot spring, Luisa Ridge Hot Spring Resort in Pansol Laguna in this particular case, you cannot really argue with it. So despite easy access to pool back home, you'll take that drive all the way to Laguna because hey, regular pool is no match to hot spring pool, I was told.

But it is not as if there is a tinge of regret lurking somewhere here because truth is, I kind of enjoy this little trip.

There are a lot of hot spring resorts in Laguna area but my father happen to know the Koren business man who acquired this property, so we went for it in support. I heard that it was previously owned by locals before the management revamped but it was a pretty murky story so I am not really sure.

Kuhala Bay Resort, Cardona Rizal

Wednesday, May 04, 2016
Kuhala Bay Resort located in Cardona Rizal is one of the good options for summer outing destinations if you are in search for resorts near Manila. It offers a nice and quiet place of relaxation with a beautiful view of countryside and Laguna lake. While Cardona is at the easternmost part of Rizal, just a couple of hours drive away from Manila, you will be welcomed with beautiful things that this humble municipality can offer. 

There are myriad of resorts in Rizal province and having its close proximity to Manila as the main selling point, it can be the best bet for people who loves to go on a summer outing but don't have the liberty of time to accommodate long travel hours.

This particular visit at Kuhala Bay Resort happened on a company outing, hence we reserved the entire place to ourselves for the whole day. But during regular days, Kuhala Bay is open for public. There aren't much information about this resort on the web, (no website, Facebook, etc.) so I hope this blog post may help.


The Nest, Dining in the Sky Restaurant at Vivere Hotel Alabang [Part Three of Staycation Series]

Sunday, April 24, 2016
There are many things to be loved about The Nest, the in-house restaurant of Vivere Hotel Alabang. While there are many which I acknowledge, there are few that for me, really stood out. That, I learned during my recent stay at Vivere Hotel one weekend.

The Nest is aptly followed by the tag "Dining in the Sky" because with the view from the 31st floor of the property that comes with the dining experience, it is indeed like dining in the sky.

A Peek to the Amenities and Suites at Vivere Hotel Alabang [Part Two of the Staycation Series]

Saturday, April 23, 2016
During my recent stay at Vivere Hotel in Alabang, I was able to take a peek of the hotel amenities as well as the other suites of the property. Since it was a weekend, Vivere Hotel is fully booked as there are some events happening but I was lucky that there were some rooms which haven't occupied yet at the time of my viewing.

Great hotel amenities is one of the vital things most of us consider when choosing a hotel. After all, it is always comforting to know that whatever you may need during your R&R will be well provided.

Being a five-star hotel, it is only expected that Vivere Hotel will do well in this league. Based on experience, I could say that they did not disappoint. I however is curious what does the other suites at Vivere Hotel may look like, and I am thankful that such request was granted.

Resort Near Manila: Nature's Land Camp Resort and Events Venue

Friday, February 12, 2016
There are a lot of resorts in Rizal area making it a good destination for those who wants to go on a group outing minus the long and exhausting travel time. One of these resorts near Manila is Nature's Land Camp Resort and Events Venue located in Morong Rizal - a private resort that offers a calming respite from the city with a beautiful view of nature.

Being a private resort, Nature's Land Camp also serves as an events venue for various occasions such as birthday, baptismal, wedding, company outing, school field trips, seminars, and such. It offers different affordable packages that suit to the guests' budget.

Weekend Stay at Taal Vista Hotel Tagaytay and Food Trip at Taza Fresh Table Restaurant [Day Two]

Thursday, January 21, 2016
The second day of our stay at Taal Vista Hotel Tagaytay was all about feasting on the amazing breakfast/brunch buffet at Taza Fresh Table Restaurant, checking out all the other things that Taal Vista Hotel has to offer, and basically enjoying the rest of our stay. 

We are scheduled to check out and head back to Manila at around noon so make sure to make use of the remaining time we had for relaxation and enjoyment - two of the things anyone who wished to stay at Taal Vista Hotel can actually experience amidst the beautiful view and fine weather.

The previous night was one hell of a crazy bonding with our group that we didn't noticed we were already a couple of hours away from the dawn. Not that I am complaining because it was one of the best night spent with friends I had for what seems like a long time. It was a treasured moment, I must say.

Tuesday, January 19, 2016
Our recent stay at Taal Vista Hotel in Tagaytay to check out and have a food trip at Taza Fresh Table Restaurant I must say is one of the most enjoyable Tagaytay trips I have ever had as of yet. One of the best staycations I had in my blogging years. Although it was a quick overnight stay, the fun, enjoyment, and relaxation - I appreciate to the core. 

While it helps that I was with some of my KTG Family, we could all say that the main reason for our grand time in Tagaytay City was the accommodation at Taal Vista Hotel and the kind service they provided us.

A lot has been said about Taal Vista Hotel. About how great of a hotel it is, about its historical past, and about how enjoyable it is to stay with them. Now it is high time for me to share here on the blog how I enjoyed my stay at Taal Vista Hotel with some friends.

Staycation at Oakwood Premier Hotel Manila in Ortigas [Part Three]

Wednesday, October 29, 2014
So, we have arrived at the last part of my Staycation at Oakwood Premier Manila Blog Series. The last day of my stay at Oakwood was as nice as the first day having the Jazzy Sunday Brunch Buffet as its highlight. Bonus part was that I spent it with some of my favorite Manila food bloggers which I consider my family in this industry.

I admit that I had a great time recalling that weekend at Oakwood to weave stories to share with you. Although I do not have all the time in the world to finish writing everything in one sitting, I am glad that you have stayed with me. Good memories are not meant to be rushed, only savored. Thank you for your patience.

It tickles me to the bone that some of you sent me emails and messages through my Facebook page just to let me know that you are enjoying this mini series. Do not worry, I am working on making the comment system here at YedyLicious way easier to deal with. Meanwhile, you are always welcome to get in touch with me by any means we see fit. 

Staycation at Oakwood Premier Hotel Manila in Ortigas [Part Two]

Sunday, October 26, 2014
On the first part of my Staycation at Oakwood Premier Manila in Ortigas blog post series, I let you in on a little tour of the One-Bedroom Deluxe which I have stayed in. I apologize if it took me a while to post this second part because well, life outside the cyberspace skyrocketed from being downright chill to notoriously demanding. But I am done complaining. I stole some time to make way finishing the second installment of this mini blog series.

So, where was I? Yes, right. We're done with the tour. Now, on to the back story.

Morning of Saturday that I am scheduled to check in at Oakwood, I was at some photo shoot to finish the project I committed myself into. To say that I was exasperated even before the clock hits 12 would be an understatement. On my way to Oakwood, I grabbed a sandwich and commenced what was the first meal of my day while walking and running carrying one overnight bag and another one full of equipment. I met up with my mother so that they could drop me off at Oakwood.

Thursday, October 16, 2014
One of the things I love doing for my blog aside from dining at restaurants is writing about hotel staycations here in Manila. So, when this month was welcomed with a weekend staycation at Oakwood Premier Manila in Ortigas, I know I have to make time even if it entails moving mountain. It is my birth month after all, I figured I could use a break from the usual.

Having experienced several themed buffets at Oakwood Premier Manila's Oakroom Restaurant, I have always been confident that they are well worth sharing here on my blog. I even hosted couple of giveaways out of Oakwood's generosity and belief that great food are meant to be shared. This time though, what I am sharing is my weekend staycation experience at Oakwood.

If you have been a long time reader, you know how enthusiastic I can get especially when it comes to telling some great experiences about my little adventures. Add to that the fact that I can get trigger happy when exposed to lovely surroundings with pleasant ambiance. Disclaimer though, as with most of the things I have shared here on YedyLicious, this is not a review, I am just sharing my stories with you. Yes, this is going to be a long post with lots of photos and I deem it is only apt to divide it into parts. And this first part right here is what I call, "A Little Tour of My Room at Oakwood."

[BORACAY] Don Vito Ristorante Italiano at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

During the time I visited Boracay and stayed at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel, I was faced with a grain of truth that I hold on to as a foodie; Don Vito Ristorante Italiano is one of the restaurants one should not missed when in Boracay. Awarded as one of The Best Restaurants of 2011 by the Philippine Tatler, Don Vito serves authentic Italian dishes in the beautiful Island where most beautiful and enjoyable experiences are bound to happen.

Several meal time spent at Don Vito Ristorante Italiano during our short Boracay stint led us into savoring some of the best sellers that the restaurant could offer.  With the cornucopia of flavors that was laid for us, it was a gastronomical overdrive meant to be remembered and savored.

One of the perks that you can get when staying at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel, one of the best hotels in Boracay is the breakfast buffet that comes with the accommodation.  The buffet is held everyday at the hotel's award-winning in-house restaurant, Don Vito Ristorante Italiano located at the ground floor in front of the hotel.

[BORACAY] Mandarin Spa at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel

Thursday, December 08, 2011

Some friends say that a visit at Boracay Island wouldn’t be complete without having a spa session.  After all, it is almost always the culmination of one relaxing getaway.  Good thing that our stay at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel includes a spa session at the Mandarin Spa.

I was torn choosing between Traditional Filipino Hilot, which the Mandarin Spa was known for, and the Aroma Stone Therapy but decided to go with the latter.  Traditional massage technique using volcanic basalt stone which promises to release muscular tension and balance the spirit sound mystically enticing to me, so I decided to give it a go.

During our stay at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel we were given a chance to take a peek to other rooms, suites, and penthouse that the property boasts of. While I am more than happy with the hotel room where I am staying in, I cannot help but feel excited to plan yet another visit at the hotel and book the other rooms I find really impressive.

Given the room rates at Boracay Madarin Island Hotel, I must say that the prices are indeed very reasonable considering the quality of rooms. What makes it all the more worth it is the view of the Boracay shore just right in front of the hotel.

Breakfast Buffet at Pan Pacific Manila Hotel

Saturday, November 19, 2011

I have mentioned in my previous post about our stay at Pan Pacific Hotel Manila that the wonders of our experience weren’t just confined within the corners of our room.  While I had the grandest time relaxing in our room, the best thing that really left a mark on me was our dining experiences.

The morning after the night I spent sleeping like a baby in our room, we were greeted with an awesome breakfast buffet waiting for us at the Pan Pacific Lounge 21st floor of the hotel.  Wide variety of food which wasn’t just limited to the usual breakfast dishes was spread at the buffet table while guests were busy loading up to face a great day ahead.

Pre-Dinner Cocktail at the Pacific Lounge of Pan Pacific Manila Hotel

Friday, November 18, 2011
Couple of days before staying at Pan Pacific Hotel Manila, my sister and I planned to visit several restaurants around the area. 

That didn’t materialize. 

But that’s perfectly fine with us because the decision to stick to the goal of enjoying Pan Pacific Hotel Manila, including their food offerings was probably the best decision we’ve ever made that time.

Couple of months ago, Pan Pacific Manila, the first and finest butler hotel in the country launched their newly renovated rooms to further enhance the best five star hotel experiences that they can offer to their guests.  A week after my birthday, I was able to experience staying at one of Pan Pacific’s renovated rooms with my sister.
