Win’s 4th Birthday Celebration -Days 2, 3 and 4

I love just how accessible our hotel is to all types of HK transportation. The A21 Citifyler bus to and from HK International Airport stops right infront of our hotel (just get off at Prudential Life-Nathan Road, approximately the11th stop from the airport). MTR Jordan Exit C1 is right beside Shamrock hotel, so it’s easyContinue reading “Win’s 4th Birthday Celebration -Days 2, 3 and 4”

Win’s 4th Birthday Celebration -Day 1

I really got lucky with Win. Ever since she was a baby, I never really had serious problems with her – a healthy, attentive and good natured child who loves to laugh and learn.

Through that hopefully I can raise an empathic, knowledgeable and well-roundedContinue reading “Majayjay Adventure”

Hahaha. I initially thought the nausea wasContinue reading “Pound by Todd English at SM Megamall”

Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina, UP Town Center

I’ve seen a lot of restaurants open, some of them grandiosely,  only to close in a span of few months here in Katipunan. There’s just too many competition and if you’re not offering something really good and worth the money, then don’t expect your restaurant to survive. It’s a dog eats dog world out here…wellContinue reading “Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina, UP Town Center”
