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…

What I Would Say to My 22-year-old Self? After 5 years!

April 4, 2011 College of Engineering, Graduation Day at Bulacan State University
Hey Chad!
How are you? You're already 22 and about to graduate with an engineering degree! Yes, you will no longer study in school. Maybe you'll miss it, maybe, not. As Andre Maurois quoted the great English writer Carlyle, "A man ought to spend the first part of his life conversing with the dead, the second with the living and the third with himself.” and you already finished the first stage of life. Congratulations!

Now, you have an exciting future and career ahead of you. Don't worry too much about the next step. You can do it! Just stay focused. I know by now you're worrying about getting the license. Hey man! You can make it to the list! Trust me!
After that, you will be entering the corporate world. I know you’ve always wanted to be in the IT field and it has always been your passion since you entered college. When you get there, my advice to you is to focus. You have to calm d…

It's All About Time

When I was younger and looked ahead , time seemed to move so slowly….
I could hardly imagine what other folks often said.

“Ang bilis ng oras.” “Lunes na naman, trabaho na naman.” “Tapos na ang day-off…”

But, as I aged older, the years seem short now. I even sometimes hear myself say…

“Pasukan na naman?” “Di ko man lang na-enjoy ang sembreak.”
And now, I can SOMETIMES realize the brevity of life.
Sometimes… ?

Yes! Kasi may mga araw sa buhay ko bilang estudyante na nasasabi ko…

“Ang tagal naman magbakasyon. Tagal ng sembreak!” “Hay! Ang tagal naman ng class. Tinatamad na ko!!!” “Di pa ba uwian? Bato na ko!”
I know! Nagdaan ka rin sa ganyan. Nasabi mo rin yan!
But still, I can realize how short life is. “Life is fleeting as vapor”, the Bible says. Para lang tayong mga bula. We appear for a little time and then vanish away. QUESTIONS,
Paano mo ba nagamit ang TIME mo?

Paano mo nagamit ang kung ide-describe ko, the most precious commodity on earth….
Yung the most precious gift one can give…
