Food Trip in Kapitolyo: Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina

There are few good Mexican restaurants in Metro Manila. On top of my list for good Mexican food is Ristras. But after trying out the delicious Silantro Fil-Mex in Kapitolyo, I now have a new fave Mexican place. Why do I love this place?

Chicken Cheese Quesidilla with Fries
  1. Delicious Food - from the cheesy and generous meat of the Nachos to the extremely cheesy quesidilla, and the indescribable and delicious burrito. I am hands-down in heaven during those two hours of eating here.
  2. Reasonable Price (heck! it's so much cheaper than any Mexican restaurants I have tried) - Php 180.00 for the huge burrito that can be shared by 2-3 people. The Nachos good for 2-3 people just cost Php 145.00.
  3. Huge Serving
  4. Accommodating Service - attentive servers
Cheesy and Meaty Nachos
Things they could improve on: they need a bigger place so they could serve more people at the same time. We waited for around 15-30 minutes before we got inside the place.

Nonetheless, the wait is definitely worth.

Happy food trip dinner with +Jomar and +Mitch

When I stopped following job search advice, I found work!

Immigrating to a new country is never easy. The culture shock, temperature changes, and being unemployed are just some of the many things one would experience when moving to a new country.

In my case, I immigrated to Canada from Philippines. Not much culture shock since Philippines was heavily influenced by the Americans but the temperature change from hot to cold was something my body still needs adjusting to. The most difficult challenge of all (at least for me) was being unemployed.


I was happy with my career at Philippines. I work with amazing people (hello QSR team!) and I love what I do - training and helping schools use Google Apps in the classroom, is a rewarding thing to do. I am not talking about the monetary reward but more on the fulfillment of working with teachers and their professional growth.


When I arrive in Canada, I was obviously unemployed. It was tough. I was so confident that I'll be able to find work right away but I didn't. I am lucky, though, that my p…

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.
