Day 3 in Bicol: Good Morning Naga Walk

Our flight is at 10:45 AM via Cebu Pacific. The hotel service will pick us up by 9 AM going to the airport. It means  +Jomar Tigcal ,  +Wayne Manuel  and I still have time to explore Naga City and visit the parks and Churches there. We woke up at 6:00 AM to visit the places below: The closest park to our Hotel is Rizal Park (Freedom Park) . A Huge I <3 NAGA sign is there as well.

Day 2 in Bicol: Food, Friends, and Events

Bicol Youth for Technology Exposure 2013 +Jerome Locson  invited me to be one of the speakers for BYTE 2013. I will be sharing about Gmail (with Contacts & Tasks), Calendar, Google Search, and Google Sites.  +Jomar Tigcal  will be sharing about Android development while  +Wayne Manuel  is going to share about Google Maps API.

Day 1 in Bicol: The City of Naga

My previous post ended with  +Jomar Tigcal , and I on our way to the Terminal to ride a van going to Naga City. After two hours (around 3:00 PM), we got off in front of SM Naga. Tricycle, taxi, jeepney, and vans were everywhere. My first impression was it is a progressive city and a whole lot busier than Legazpi City, Albay. We rode a tricycle and headed to our rest for the night: Naga Regent Hotel . Probably a review of the hotel in another post! After dropping off our stuff and resting a bit, Ms.  +Aileen Apolo  sent us an SMS informing us that we should have snacks in her cousin's place, Casa Moderna .  +Wayne Manuel ,  +Jomar Tigcal  and I got lost because there's a branch near our hotel - we went there first, and after searching for Ms. Aileen to no avail, we asked the waitress and found out that there are five branches of Casa Moderna all over the city!

Day 1 in Bicol: The Legazpi-Daraga Tour

At last! After more than two months of staying in the city, I found myself in a new place again! I could not be happier when Jerome Locson invited Jomar Tigcal, Wayne Manuel, and I to be speakers for the Bicol Youth for Technology Exposure (BYTE) 2013. It was my first time to visit the Bicol Region, and I am ecstatic to be there! The event was on the 19th of October 2013. Instead of flying to Naga, Jomar and I took the flight via Legazpi to see the beauty of Mt. Mayon and explore what time would permit in Legazpi, Albay. Mt. Mayon seen in the Legazpi Airport

Food Trip in Makati: Commune

I've been working in Makati for three years now and have tried different food places around the busy city. In the first round of my food trip around Makati, I will be sharing about Commune ! It's a coffee + bar + restaurant found in the corner of Valero and H.V. Dela Costa (near Trafalgar and BDO Towers). All-Day Breakfast I loved their chicken longganisa! It was the first time I tried last October 2, and it was delicious. The only reason I don't have a photo of it is that I finished the food before I remember to take a picture of it. Gutom eh. Ultimate Food Trip I love Commune and the different food adventure  +Jomar Tigcal , and I have when we have dinner here. Jomar is more adventurous in trying all the viands available while I stick to the food that I like. August 8, 2013: Daing Na Bangus and Chicken Adobo Sa Gata
