A Travel Show : Where's Tony Season 2 Launch Party!

If you’re taking a break from gallivanting  and happen to be in town on a Monday night and facing the tube, I encourage you to watch Where’s Tony. It’s a weekly Filipino travel show hosted by the ultra charming Tonytoni, who is even more popular as a DJ from Magic 89.9.  Does Boys Night Out ring a bell to you? Yes, he’s that Tony! 

The show promises to entertain you with Tony’s wacky and unique adventures and  provide information on what to see, do, eat and more for each featured destination. It’s shown on Studio 23 every Monday at 11:30 PM. 

Last month (blushing for the delayed post, sorry John!) I received an email from John Manat, associate producer for Red Pill Media Inc. It was an invite for its Season 2 launch party at the Amber Lounge, The Fort.   Being the party animal that I am (and I say that with sarcasm), I arrived early, already worn out from work and quite sleepy. I noticed the party hardly even began. Of  course, “cool parties” don’t normally start until 12am or so. Gosh, that’s way past my bed time! Haha! 

My companions and I were immediately ushered to comfy lounge seats in a darker part of the club. The soft cushion is  perfect for sleeping when you’re already drunk.  :P

No more than ten minutes, uniformed staff began serving trays of food and drinks. I got red wine, my usual next option (they didn’t serve coffee or Red Horse eh, haha!).  Some friends got white wine and the cute blue martini (which was gooood!).  Then, DJ Tonytoni was introduced to us and warmly shook our hands. He’s quite personable.   I’m not a fan of small talk so I just congratulated him. Hihi. 

In less than an hour,  after stuffing ourselves with the free food and booze,  we had to leave even before the party heated up. Boo hoo. I didn’t even get to chat with John who sent out the invites! But I already stayed long enough and had to leave  because I have work the following day.  Though it was a very brief but fun stay, I sincerely appreciate the invite and I am looking forward to catching the show. 

Amber Ultra Lounge service was amazing and the staff ensured we were full all the time, hahaha! Sweet!  

Again, thanks John!

Part 2 : Bataan Adventures | Where to Eat in Bataan (Updated 2017)

Being an avid hiker and foodie, I've grown very fond of visiting  Bataan.  This province offers several hiking trails (check my post here) passing verdant forests and nicely decorated cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a proper cup of coffee and affordable comfort food. It is also highly accessible from Manila via land travel, making it a good option for a short but rewarding out of town adventure. 

Here's a list of restaurants in Bataan where you can enjoy satisfying meals. 

The restaurant's name which means little angels (male) was inspired by the owner's 3 young boys, Miguel (after St. Michael), Rafael and Gabriel.This 2 year old family owned restaurant has a homey ambiance and serves any type of food that the family enjoys.

Dishes are flavorful and priced affordably -100 Pesos above for the main dishes and 20 Pesos above for the desserts.Specialty includes, pork binagoongan and creamy tofu (my fave!). The restroom which has a mini garden is als…

Hiking in La Trinidad : Mt. Yangbew

To kickoff 2017, I  returned to the Cordillera region with one of my closest friends, Jules. We wanted to take it easy  so we decided to try a couple of short but very scenic trails in Benguet I found online (References posted below). 

Barangay Tawang in La Trinidad,the capital of the province of Benguet  is less than an hour from Baguio city and features several accessible, scenic mountain trails - Mt. Yangbew (also known as Mt. Jambo), Tayawan view deck and Mt. Kalugong. These are all beginner-friendly or as the younger Pinoy millenials would say, pabebe-friendly. :P
Since we were taking a super early bus ride,  (1:30 AM early! :P), we made sure  we got nice, comfy seats. Fortunately, with 3 days prior to the trip, we were able to book online via iWantSeats.

In five hours, we arrived in the City of Pines and walked towards Session Road to hunt for a hotel. Fortunately, a vacant room was immediately available at Benguet Prime Hotel so we were able to leave our bags.  We took our sweet t…

1.  Footwear
Footwear should enhance your experience outdoors and protect you from injury. There are shoes designed specifically for hiking but I encourage you to research the mountain  first before purchasing hiking shoes. Will there be sections where you need to cross rivers? How long will you be hiking?If the mountain has a clear and established trail that normally won't take more than 4 hours to complete, you can very w…
