I was invited last October 15, 2014 to witness the launch of the the sub-portal dedicated for the products from the different parts of the archipelago to reach out on a wider market: 1780 by SariSari.

These products are carefully sourced from 17 regions, 80 provinces, Sarisari highlights the best that the Philippines has to offer in terms of gastronomy and craftsmanship. 

1780 by SariSari puts a modern flair to a variety of Filipino products. Patti Grandidge, owner of handcrafted cupcake store Sweet Patti Cakes, has created a limited edition cupcakes using the organically-grown Dark Chocolate from Kablon Farms. Amina Aranas, a local designer and fashion influencer, collaborated with one of 1780 by SariSari's merchants to craft a bag using native materials which will be sold exclusively on the site. 1780 by SariSari was also joined by Ivan Henares, a traveler and tourism influencer, who discussed his advocacy towards heritage products and sites around the country.

Wang Mai Cafe, Bangkok

During our stay in Thailand, I realized that we rarely sat down to have a quiet breakfast. One of those rare moments was when we were looking for a place to have coffee before we proceeded to The Jim Thompson House. While walking along National Stadium area, we found this cute little coffee shop: Wang Mai Cafe

Located within the National Stadium compound, Wang Mai Cafe is quite straightforward: they only offer coffee and tea drinks -- hot, iced or frappe.

My First Airbnb Experience in Bangkok Thailand

As a traveler, I believe that the accommodation is part of the adventure. I have tried staying in a dormitory in Davao, pension house in Iloilo and Bacolod, and an eco-friendly boutique hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia. For my trip to Bangkok, we decided to try this cool website called Airbnb. 

Airbnb is a website with accommodation listings around the world. These listings can be entire homes, apartments, hotels, private rooms and many others. 

For Bangkok, we rented a private room for 2 days in Sathorn area. 

Prior to our arrival in Bangkok, we were given specific instructions on how to go to the place by one of our hosts, Jesse. He also gave us his mobile number should we get lost or when we are near his place.

Night Out at Descanzo Bar & Resto

I've been working in Ortigas for years, and though I have been here for quite a long time, I still haven't been to a lot of hang-out places around this area. 

I was glad to chill out last weekend in one of the newest bar and resto in this business district called Descanzo Bar & Resto

Descanzo, which means "to relax" in Spanish, is located at the heart of Ortigas. Opened last February 2014, the place is open for breakfast to late dinners and drinks. 

We were able to try some of their dishes and sample their cocktails as well, while listening to live music. :)
