Lobo, Batangas – a Place of Wonder and Simplicity

Simple life? In the beach or mountain side? Lobo is the place to be.

This Holy Week 2018, me, my wife, two of our friends, and their parents, visited Lobo in the province of Batangas.

There are three passages going here. One is thru the main town of Taysan, Batangas via barangay Dagatan. The other one is via Gov. Antonio Carpio Road, stretching from Batangas City to barangay Mapulo also in the town of Taysan. Both passages will merge into barangay Bacao in Taysan. The road from here are zigzag that the local people have called it “bitukang manok” (chicken intestine – like). Green mountains and narrow roads will make your travel more exciting in going here.


The third one is thru Batangas City entering barangay Libjo. This path is quite longer than the first two. Also a bit zigzag but as you are traversing roads mostly on the beachside, the driving experience would be full of wonders. Aside from the ocean view, there are landmarks here that will make you say to the driver to stop for …

The Filipino Ways: Stories of Our Lutong Bahay Foods (Part 1)

Hello! Welcome to the Philippines, the land of tasty menus, amazing recipes, and delicious meals. This is my country, the country of the Filipinos, and if its about food, it is something that we are so proud of.
In this post, I would share some stories, some origins, and some wonderful experiences of the foods I tasted here in the Philippines. Perhaps, many of you could have already tasted a lot of these foods and that's great. But let me try to discuss what's in these menus; what is it that makes Filipinos love to eat them at home, inside restaurants, at the park, in our office pantry, in our school canteens, and even inside our cars during road trips. Some of the trivia, you may not believe they're true.
Let's get started.

Lydia's Lechon Ms. Lydia de Roca and her husband Mr. Benigno de Roca started it all in the late 80's. With lechon or roast pig as the prime menu, Lydia expanded her restaurant and now includes "lutong bahay" or home-cooked dishes.…

Like you, yes YOU, searching via Google or TripAdvisor is always part of the game plan of going to places you admire the most.

A Time to Unwind for Filipinos Like Us at Sky Ranch, Tagaytay - Part 1

Of all the hardships and sacrifices Filipinos are facing each day, probably the always-sought-after remedy of most Filipinos is to unwind, relax, take a break from somewhere far from office or workplace. Yes, we Filipinos get tired too - despite of our courage and enthusiasm to work harder for our ourselves and our families. You would not believe that by simply going to the malls (like SM), Filipino moms and dads, tatay and inay, ate and kuya, are already finding ways to release the stress gained from a long week of work. And for those who have saved some, going a little bit farther from home completes their entire weekend with re-energized body and soul.
