Better value for money buffet at Grand Majestic

By on August 11, 2016
Despite the recent entry of big-name brands in Cebu, Grand Majestic still is among the very few remaining better-valued buffet restaurants in the city. Although their prices (Php 550 for lunch and Php 650 for dinner) have increased a little bit since the last time I visited here, the quality of the food has thankfully not changed.

McDonald’s non-app Angry Birds toys

By on June 8, 2016
I wanted to watch The Angry Birds Movie when it was still shown in cinemas here in Cebu. This was largely fueled by my nostalgia for the wildly successful mobile game and also some bit of curiosity as to how the film creators created a story out of it.

Chasing Waterfalls in Iligan City

By on May 29, 2016
I once did a blog a collaboration with Lisa Mirasol of Pinaytravelista.com where we shared various travel tips about Iligan, a highly-urbanized city in Southern Philippines. Little did I know that a few months after I published that entry, I was fortunate enough to return to my beloved birthplace to participate in the Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0, a unique weekender organized by the Iligan Bloggers Society.

#FoodcourtFinds – Belly Buster at SM Seaside Cebu

By on May 28, 2016
Each Belly Buster slice by the way was packed with flavor but not to the point that the spices overpowered the meat. The skin was also roasted to a delightful crisp. Most of all, it was not as greasy compared to that of their more established competitor.

Post-election hangover at Sulbing Dessert Cafe

By on May 21, 2016
Although Sulbing cafe also offers crepes, coffee and toasts, it undoubtedly specializes on bingsu, a much-loved Korean dessert that's similar to our local halo-halo. But compared to the latter, it's actually recommended not to mix the finely shaved ice with its mountainous toppings. Instead, you scoop delicious spoonfuls out of this mound.

Butuan City delicacies: palagsing and decades-old hotcakes

By on April 23, 2016
I actually expected a few hotcake stalls that morning. Mrs. Carissa Tolo or Nang Isang would later tell me that there used to be five of them back in 1984. Her fellow hotcake vendors have since left Butuan, but she chose to stay in the city. She has been flipping these beloved pancakes ever since.

Back in Eastwood City

By on April 18, 2016
Eastwood is not a 'city' per se, but in many respects it is. Confined (or crowded) in this relatively small piece of real estate are luxury condominium towers, BPO companies, pet-friendly shopping malls, churches, restaurants, a clinic and even an educational institution.

Brennan is an electronics engineer by profession. From time to time, he gets to travel beyond his office cubicle, try new restaurants or catch up with his terribly long list of unread books. He likes museums, spicy food and talking with habal-habal drivers. For now, he's still deciding on whether to play Pokémon GO or not.
