I've been to South Korea last October 2011. It was my first travel out of the country with friends. It was great! This year (2014), Jomar and I with our GDG friends (Mitch, Wayne, and Mama Chelle) are planning to go to South Korea for vacation.

Last January 26, GDG Halsema had their first meet-up. Jomar and I went up to Bontoc to be their speakers. Jomar talked about GDG and GDG Philippines while I discussed and had a demo of Google Apps particularly with an emphasis on how teachers and students could maximize it.
But before the meet-up, Jomar and I rode a 12-hour bus ride going to Bontoc through Cable Tours. Some tips, buy or reserve your tickets ahead of time. I purchased our tickets the day before our trip, and we were already seated at the back. Come Friday, some people wanted to buy more tickets but they couldn't. I tried reserving tickets through phone but they didn't reply, so I decided to go to the terminal located inside a compound. To go there, you have to walk inside the compound between Shakey's and the Trinity University of Asia along E. Rodriguez Avenue. The bus left 9:00 PM, and we had three to four stopovers.
Press Cafe is a restaurant inside the posh Power Plant Mall. It is near Fully Booked and the Cinemas.
Around three weeks ago, +Chelle, +Mitch, +Wayne, +Jomar, and I decided to watch the Filipino movie Starting Over Again starring Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga at the Power Plant Mall.
Before the movie, we had dinner at Press Cafe. It was a bit expensive, but I was hungry and would want to eat before the movie. I had the Cheesy Eggplant which was cheesy and yummy. Though, half-way through it, I want to stop eating since the appetite is gone. Wayne had burgers while Mama Chelle had pasta and Mitch had steak with potatoes. Jomar had chicken with rice.
The food is good, but the price is a bit on the mid-range. You would need at a minimum Php 200.00 for a decent meal.
