Food Trip in San Juan: Hong Kong Famous Street Food

San Juan is a small city in Metro Manila and I have no idea where it is until the time I started riding vans who shortcut around San Juan just to get to Makati every morning.

Yesterday, I went to the De La Salle to get my transcript then off to the Google Student Leaders Summit organized by the Google Student Ambassadors (GSA) happening in Orange and Bronze Software Labs Inc. Mama +Chelle gave a talk about the community both the Google Developer Group (GDG) and Google Business Group (GBG) and how the student leaders could volunteer. When +Jomar and I arrived at the venue Mamu Chelle called me in front to share how I started in the industry, got involved in the GDGs, and the perks I get from volunteering from GDG.

At around 12:30 to almost 1:00 PM, Mamu, Jomar, and I rushed to the GBG San Juan meet-up in The Orange Place Hotel. It was fun! I opened the after snacks session with the topic that I thought of on the way to the meet-up: Google Local and/or Pages for Business.

After the meetup, we had dinner in Eat Fresh Hong Kong Famous Street Food.

Yummy food from Eat Fresh

It was when I realize that there's an area in San Juan where so many restaurants are located. This city needs to be explored for food! I had such a food coma dinner in Eat Fresh because we ordered so many food! My fave still, is the Takoyaki. After dinner, we had milk tea at Serenitea which is a few steps away.


That street was amazing! I can't wait to go back and explore other food options there.

February 2017: Food and Weather

I may have posted this line before, I have this love-hate relationship with my new home country. Though Canada still doesn't feel home, most of the time, I still feel like I am just on vacation and can't wait to go back home to the Philippines.

Anyway, I love Canada! This last winter season (December to February) is the worst snow British Columbia has seen in x number years, specifically in Metro Vancouver. Growing up in a tropical country, I would only dream of seeing snow gently falling from the sky like in the movies. But being able to see it with my own eyes and touch it while waiting for a bus is really a dream come true. I love the snow and how gently it would fall. The biggest reason of this love and amazement for snow is it's my first time to experience it. But the day or two after a snowfall, is just really annoying. Icy roads, icy sidewalk, icy everything and the fear of slipping is something difficult to live with.
