Eating my way through Manila - Two weeks of delicious meals and snacks

Phuket - islandI go back to Manila at least once a year to see my mom and the entire family and friends and I've been doing it for over 15 years now. Manila is changing at a fast pace and I like what I am rediscovering each year. For one thing, there are more restaurants and places to eat now than before and they serve truly good food.

For two weeks, I tried to take pictures of what I ate while I was in Manila. This blog contains twentyfive savory meals, desserts and drinks I sampled with Mijo, with my family and friends. Enjoy!

Life is a Beach - Relaxing in Phuket and Phi Phi Islands

Phuket - island We were in Thailand in the later part of November because we got an invite from our friends A&M to come visit them in Amphawa for the Loy Krathong or Festival of Lights. Before we went to Amphawa, Mijo and I took a detour and decided to check out the  country's most famous beaches.

We didn't only enjoy a relaxing getaway, we also enjoyed the picturesque views of the islands. Check them out here.
