Lessons from Kuya Pipay: Baler Surfing 101

This is Kuya Pipay – electrical lineman on the weekdays and surf instructor on the weekends. What I thought would be a typical surfing lesson turned out to be a great learning experience because of this super cool surf coach! I wasn’t expecting much from my surfing lessons in Baler since a lot of the surfing instructors I met from other surfsites always teach the basics –find your balance, push yourself up ...

Darwin Dimsum: from Hong Kong to Manila

I always enjoy eating dim sum and I’m so happy to have come across a new dining spot in Makati that serves my favorite Chinese dishes - pork buns, siomai, shrimp hakaw, prawn dumplings and chicken feet. Darwin Dimsum Hong Kong Special is a hole-in-the-wall resto that is somewhat similar to the famous Tim Ho Wan Restaurant but it takes the hunger games a notch higher by offering too-cute-to-eat dishes. ...

Extreme activities in Cebu

Cebu will always be one of my favorite places outside of the Metro. I have been here 5 times already. I’ve seen the historical sights – from the infamous Magellan’s Cross to Fort San Pedro, munched on the “must taste”, “only in Cebu” cuisine – lechon, dried mangoes and otap and I’ve danced to Sinulog’s beat a couple of times. I can even paint the Sto. Niño Basilica with my eyes closed! This is my 6th ...
