Wishful Thinking in 2012

Roch Wishlist 2012

I have specific goals in the upcoming year, 2012.  However, material-wise, I do have a lot that I wish to have.  I know that I won’t be able to buy most of them.  I do want to keep a list here so I can be inspired enough to at least, make some of them a […]

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Movie Review

Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

I’ve seen the trailer of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol before and I was really intrigued!  Considering how old Tom Cruise is, he looked so awesome still.  I wondered if he could still carry an action film with him top billing it. I rarely watch movies these days.  So I was glad that the Smart […]

December 16, 2011 is a date that all Apple fanatics have been waiting for.  It is today that Apple launches iPhone 4S in the Philippines.  But you know what really makes this day so special?  There’s no exclusivity anymore among mobile providers!  We, consumers, are now free to choose which telecom company we want to […]

Cafe Via Mare

Cafe Via Mare

It’s quite surprising that I haven’t blogged about Cafe Via Mare.  It’s a restaurant that I always love to have merienda in.  Their bibingka, especially their puto bumbong and palitaw are the best in the Metro.  I guess I felt that blogging about Cafe Via Mare’s snack menu wouldn’t be enough for a single blog […]

Travel Diary: Boracay 2011

Boracay 2011

This has got to be the shortest Boracay trip for me.  It was also the first time that I stayed in the hotel all throughout and didn’t even go out strolling on the beach. My main theme for the trip was relaxation and I’m glad I got it.  I stayed in a wonderful hotel – […]

Transformation of our Boracay Airport

While I rested and relaxed at Boracay Mandarin Hotel a few weekends ago, there was one thing that I couldn’t forget.  One major thing that impressed me so much that I can’t help but share the good news with everyone.  It’s something that we, Filipinos, will be very proud of.  It’s something that we have […]

Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel

As soon as I received an invite for a weekend getaway at Boracay courtesy of Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel, I got immediately excited.  It was a pleasant surprise.  Every bit of a chance for me to go to our so-called Boracay paradise, is something I wouldn’t wanna miss.  I was giddily planning in my mind […]

Don Vito Ristorante Italiano

Don Vito Ristorante Italiano

When I go to Boracay, I usually try out as many restaurants as I can.  However, during my short weekend trip recently, I stayed at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel all throughout.  Being sick was the main reason why I didn’t go around and another was, we were invited by Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel to try […]

Breakfast Buffet at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel

Breakfast Buffet at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel

My Boracay trip last November 26-27 must be the shortest trip I’ve ever had there.  In spite of spending such a short time, we made good use of the time.  The itinerary was jam-packed but it was made with pure fun in mind. The most important meal in anyone’s day is breakfast.  One thing that […]

Mandarin Spa Boracay

Mandarin Spa Boracay

If you’ve been to Boracay a couple of times, you’ll notice several masseuses offering their services in the open area of the beach.  I’ve tried those during my previous visits. During my weekend Boracay getaway two weeks ago, I was lucky enough that part of our itinerary was to try out the famous Mandarin Spa […]
