Dinner at Mesa Filipino Moderne, Greenbelt 5, Makati City

It’s Amy’s birthday today and she will treat us for dinner. Some of my care bear co-members (my office mates in reality) were elated to go back at Dampa in Macapagal Boulevard for seafood delight.

Hello there Baler-City Tour: Part 1 of our Baler Trip

When we speak of Baler, surfing initially comes to one’s mind. Right?

Baler, the once sleepy municipality now emerges as one of the top surfing spots in the Philippines. This provincial capital of Aurora which is oftentimes mistaken as part of Quezon Province is not only all about endless surfing in Sabang Beach. It has unspoiled waterfalls, dramatic rock formations, creamy white-sand, and buffeting waves… surely Baler is worth a place to explore!

Nipa Resto Grill, San Fernando, La Union

Our refreshing vacation in Ilocos Province would not be complete without tasting their famous delicacies. Unfortunately, arriving late at night at Normi2′s Beachfront Resort in San Juan, La Union (being the last place to visit in our North Luzon trip) and an early check-out the following day deprived us of eating food something authentic to this town.

And so by lunch, we made sure we could find interesting dining place to eat.
