The Grill by Antonio's Tagaytay

Tagaytay has been a place where our peer usually hang out since 2009. Aside from being easily accessible from the Manila, its mild climate and dramatic scenery, this place has a lot to offer for foodies like us.

For foodies, there are many must-try restaurants located around the place. One of which is the The Grill by Antonio's.

Last July 4, I got a chance to dine here. Planned a week before, assuming that it would be a holiday since I am working on a project that is US-based, I immediately confirmed that I would be joining them and paid my part for the hotel. And to my surprise, it was not a nonworking holiday for me. So, I had no choice. I had to work that evening even if I was on a trip. WFH as they normally say... Work From Hotel! LOL

So going back to Antonio's Grill,  we arrived at around 2PM in Tagaytay. We head straight to The Grill to have our late lunch. First thing I noticed is the place. It looks so cozy and similar to an American Craftsman style.
Combination of Black and White
Second thing I noticed is that most of the dishes served here are Filipino food. Yum yum! :D
Since it was lunch and the same time, it was foggy, we decided to eat something hot and something we don't usually eat, so we ordered Kadyos and Sinigang na Salmon sa Miso.

We only ordered two viand because the servings is already too much for our group.
I am not food blogger/expert so nothing more to say about the details of how the dishes tastes but definitely, it was sumptuous!  Sulit!
Sinigang na Salmon sa Miso
Those two dishes served with hot steam rice was already too much for our lunch.Bloated and may Take-Out pa!
The look of a hungry person without sleep yet. LOL
After a minute of just chilling and little planning of what to do next, we went to our accommodation to rest.

Next stop... Windgate Manor to have Full Body Massage and Bag of Beans to relax.
Guess work cannot stop me from doing my adventure thing! :P

The Grill by Antonio's or simply Antonio's Grill is located along Aguinaldo Highway near Magallanes Square and beside Leslie's.

Baguio Forest House : Bed and Breakfast

One of the best places to visit and stay while you are in Baguio is this cozy place where you will always feel like it’s Christmas – Baguio Forest House. Fortunately, I was able to experience staying here even for just a night for business matters. Literally, I felt like I’m inside Santa’s house – the color, the ambiance, and the designs!

I must admit, I really love the place and now I understand why most of the people I used to ask of the where-to’s in Baguio always recommend this place.

One of the things I loved during my stay this September 2015 was the ambiance of each place of the house. Every part of the house is a good place to relax and feel comfortable.

The Room
The room is also one of the things I love about this place. I wish I have the same style in our house. Rustic and quaint ! I heard the house is owned by an architect which explains why the design is simply captivating.

The Food
Needless to say, the fact that I took photos of the food before eating is really som…

Must-Do's Whenever You Visit Baguio

Baguio city never loses its charm for me. It is always lovely all year round. Though this Summer Capital City of the Philippines you see now does not come close to how beautiful and breathtaking it was before, I always look forward on going here to enjoy the cold weather and most importantly, to experience the new things it has to offer for me to try and to see.

And because of that, I have created my list of the must-do’s in Baguio City that I have discovered so far. Some might sound ordinary but I hope you find most of it as interesting.
1. Have a lunch or dinner at Good Taste

This place was only recommended by my cousin living in Baguio. If you are looking for good food, this restaurant is just right for you. They serve mainly Filipino dishes. Prices are reasonable. Food quality is average, and serving sizes are more than adequate.

Location: No.8 Lapu Lapu Street, Baguio, Luzon, Philippines (Just nearby Burnham Park)

2. Have a cup of coffee in Cafe by The Ruins This place is a good st…

7 Things I Consider in Travel Photography

Have you noticed how some of the travel photos of other people are exactly the same as what you see on postcards?

Yes, I also have some photos like that! I know it's common to capture those scenic spots; but after all, I realized, my photos are kinda boring. LOL! Not looking like it's originally captured by me.

I'm no expert in terms of photography but below are my recommended things to do when taking travel photos.

1. Make "Out of the Postcard Photography".
This concept has been my goal. Shoot landmarks in a different perspective. Who knows, you might discover something new and make stories about it. It could be that the rear view of the famous landmark resembles a thing no one ever thought of? Make sense?
Don't go traditional.

2. Include local 'signages' in your photos.
In this way, your photo will have a good sense of place.Take a good shot of stores, restaurants with different names, road signs, and anything that is unique in the place.
