Blog Giveaway c/o World Bites : Win a Box of Treats from Around the Globe!

Are you the adventurous type who loves traveling and trying out new food? Are you willing to book a flight or ride a boat solely just to eat?  (No judgement, I'm that way too! :P See related post, Samar-Leyte in a Day

Yes?! 

Well hello there kindred soul! Have I got a treat for you! :)

Last week, I received a box of snacks from World Bites, a newly launched  online store and subscription box service  offering popular international snacks  you rarely see in retail stores around the Philippines. 
World Bites website, http://worldbites.ph/
Seeing treats I haven't tried got me really excited and before I could stop myself (I had just taken my breakfast),  I'd already open four bags. I was with my siblings  at the time and we all enjoyed trying it out. The selection of snacks were a variety of sweet, spicy and salty, over-all, a nice combination of flavors.  Coming from a family of foodies, it also turned out to be a nice bonding activity for us. I'll write a separate review about what we've tried on another post. :) 

For now, here's a preview of what World Bites offers. 
Snacks from Korea, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, India, Canada, France, Romania,  Serbia,
Mexico, Israel, Sweden and Brazil, whew!
Though I have mixed feelings about sharing food (why share when you can eat everything, diba?), the saner, kinder side of me  prevailed - must be from ingesting all those cookies earlier, haha! I'm extending the joy of discovering treats from around the world through a a giveaway! The mechanics are  super simple. Just follow instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below. 

Up for grabs :  World Bites Mini  Box -  contains 5-6 snacks, the contents' a surprise! :)

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…

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. 

ANGELITOS (Orani)
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…

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…
