I can still remember how I was craving for this particular meal that day. I do not know why but there was just something about having it at that moment that would make me so happy. And you know what that was? Fish & Chips. Good ol' Fish and Chips, mate
The abundance of food choices, great outdoors, lively atmosphere, foodies all around and the casual ambiance. These are just some of the things that I love about food markets!
In lieu of the Good Food Month that's happening in Sydney every October, the Night Noodle Markets came back to life with 40 stalls each offering different mouth-watering specialties in Hyde Park 7 days a week, starting at 5 pm on weeknights and 4 pm on weekends.
Hallo, hallo and I am back!
Since I had been MIA here for quite some time I know I have to resurface with a bang. So without further ado, I introduce you to my Cheap Eats Series which was conceptualized out of the desire to find food in Sydney that not only tastes good but is so affordable you'll find time and energy to look for them! This was also done to erase the wrong notion associated with Sydney that everything here is so expensive.
I am not a mommy but I attended the Mommy Bloggers Workshop last April 23, which was organized by Good Housekeeping and sponsored by Elica, because the lineup of speakers and the topics ought to be discussed got me really excited! How to update my photography skills, market my blog and build my brand? I want!
A week ago, I blogged about Gourmet Society and how it is revolutionizing the restaurant industry. Now, good news to my readers! I am giving away three (3) Gourmet Society cards for you to enjoy 20% off your total bill when you dine in their partner restaurants all-year round!
If there is anything or any activity that is close to my heart, it would certainly be travelling. Travelling gives a different kind of joy and inspiration to my life. There is just something hopeful and exciting about going to a place that you haven't been in before at all or for so long, creating a rough draft of your itinerary, polishing it, researching some more, anticipating for it up until that moment that you actually do it. The cycle is addicting; I have usually gone with my family, rarely with friends and had never solo and I think I would not be able to stop travelling even if I already have toddlers on my own.
Filipinos have a penchant for food. Case in point is that I love to eat and I love to explore new restaurants to dine in. With the boom of the restaurant industry and establishments sprouting right and left, keeping up with all of them is already becoming a taxing task and not to mention, a really expensive endeavor for a foodie like me. That is why when Gourmet Society introduced a membership and privilege card which gives its members 20% off from their total bill when they dine in their partner restaurants, I was beyond ecstatic! Now, I got you curious, too, right?
METRO MANILA, PHILIPPINES. I am not usual to complain about the heat but you just have to admit that the weather these past few weeks had been hellish. It's so hot! There were times when I just want to submerge my body in icy waters and just stay there until summer is over while I reach out for the most accessible cold delight there is, both at the same time. But you know how hard that is and how it is easier to just buy some cold drink and chug it all until you reach its bottom.
MIJAS, SPAIN. Coming from Bajondillo beach in Torremolinos, we travelled for 30 minutes up to the town of Mijas. Mijas took us by surprise. First because we did not know that the town is situated up in the mountains and close with the clouds; second, because we were not aware that we will be seeing a piece of Santorini (or what I imagine Santorini to be as I have not been to Santorini yet) in Spain.
COSTA DEL SOL, SPAIN. Seeing the sun and having its rays reach my skin which is already craving for some heat perked up my spirit! Since it is winter, it is a given that gloomy days outnumbers the sunny ones. To tell you the truth, I barely felt the sun while I was in Madrid, Toledo and Granada! With that, I was not expecting to see and feel the sun when we drove to the south of Spain. But Costa del Sol is something. And I think the place would not have been named like that for no reason. Costa del Sol is the break that I have been wanting to see for many days now and well, it did not disappoint.
