A Visit to National Museum

Image
Last Sunday, I got a chance to visit the National Museum in Manila. They finished renovating the ground floor while renovations are still ongoing on the levels above.


I went to the National Museum back in college as a requirement for our class. I don't remember much from that visit because I am not good with appreciating paintings and sculptures. Nonetheless, I had fun going around the more than ten exhibits available on the ground floor of the museum. The entrance fee was free last Sunday (I am not sure if this is an every Sunday thing) but still few people were there.

Less than half-day Tagaytay Trip

Image
Yes, we were in Tagaytay for less than half of a day.

Last Sunday (January 19), +Jomar, Mama +Chelle, and I gave a tour to +Amit Chopra to the cold and breezy Tagaytay City.

We left Manila around 6:30 AM and have found ourselves on top of the People's Park in the Sky 2 hours later. It was a cloudy day, and intense cold winds greeted us on top of the park. The view of Laguna and of course, the Taal Volcano is gloomy.


Food Trip in Gapan City: Luz Kitchenette

Image
Good food. Fast service.

We visited Luz Kitchenette for early dinner before heading back to Manila. We ordered a lot of food, and I only took a few photos. Right now, this place is one of the most recommended restaurants in the City of Gapan.

Here is a Google Maps location for your reference.

Gapan City: Food, Friends, and Events

Image
It was my first out of town trip for the year! +Jomar+Wayne+Chelle+Mitch+Reymart+Alvin, +Amit and I left Manila at around 6 AM on our way to Gapan City, Nueva Ecija! We had breakfast in one of the gas stations in NLEX. A little before 9 AM, we found ourselves in Waltermart, Gapan City. After setting up our tarps, we are all set for the event!


Two hundred ninety-four students from ten different universities and colleges in Nueva Ecija attended the event for the day. After enjoying our popcorn (yes, the venue is inside the cinema) and packing up our stuff, we visited the school of AIE College of Gapan.

Food Trip in Maginhawa: Cafe Quezon

Image
Cafe Quezon is a little cafe along Maginhawa Street. +Jomar and I had desserts here after our lunch in Katsu Cafe. We even managed to watch two episodes of Detective Conan.
Below is our very delicious dessert: Dinuldol (sliced banana) and Fried Suman.

Food Trip in Maginhawa: Katsu Cafe

Image
Last Saturday, +Jomar and I went to Maginhawa for some personal matters and well, to eat. We decided to try Katsu Cafe along the very long and food heaven Maginhawa Street.

The ambiance of Katsu Cafe is not very Japanese though I supposed this was to expected since the ambiance in Crazy Katsu is the same. Food wise, I like the Chicken Katsu Jomar ordered. It was crispy and quite tasty. I had my usual Chicken Katsu Curry Rice and Gyoza. The Katsu Curry is acceptable (nothing special and it's not the best I've tried). Gyoza is the worst. It was way too sweet. I can't believe that Gyoza would be sweet. I don't think I'll be coming back.

Address: No. 189 Maginhawa Street, Sikatuna Village, Makati City
