Philippines maybe advertise as a 3rd world country but there are still plenty of great stuff to see and enjoy aside from the beaches and natural scenery. Wanna know why “It’s more fun in the Philippines.”
Last February 2012 Autoindustriya.com (AI) organized an event called Speedfest where car enthusiast and racers are invited to join. The event consist of Gymkhana, 1/4 mile run and mile run drag. So where in Philippines was this held? AI rented the whole Subic International Airport for the event, where runway was used for the mile runs and the plane docking area was used for the gymkhana. Anyway I’ll cut the chase, I’ll show you some of the photos that I took during the event.

The Ford GT could be the fastest car in Philippines. It ran 205 MPH in one mile making it the fastest car during the event.

Will these photos fit the slogan “It’s more fun in Philippines.” I’ll say hell yes! It was a successful event, there was no bad incident or accident during the event except for some blown engines but those are normal happenings in this kind of event. Are you looking for more of it? We all have to wait for the 2nd speedfest event maybe this last quarter of 2012! I hope you enjoyed it!

Recently I’ve done a photoshoot for a clothing company that was held in Noriter Cafe. It’s located in Estrada St. corner Taft Avenue, no one would expect that such a home student feel like coffee shop exist in the area. The entrance is only a small open door that immediately leads to a staircase or 2nd floor where Noriter is located. I’ll be posing photos of the place to give you the feeling of being there at least visually :p
This is the wall where you can design your own cup and share it to the world!
The tables that are full of photos, polaroids etc! Which is very nice and don’t forget you can also leave your photos 🙂
This is their order counter together with their colorful menu! The price range of the drinks and food averages 130, they have plenty of drinks and food to choose from. I tried their cookies and cream and their iced tea which happens to be really good for the price and size! You can click on the pic to see their menu!
The flying objects!
This are just some of the detailed shots, you should see it for yourself there are lot more great stuff waiting for you! There’s a section where you can remove your shoes and sit on the floor, lay down etc! To some that they feel it so homey they sleep on it and not to mention the PDA session as if no one else is there! haha :p Overall I really like the place you guys should try it and see for yourself! By the way it is owned by a married Koreans!
Noriter is open from Monday to Saturday, operating hours starts from 10am until 9pm.
One of my favorite restaurant in Binondo (Chinatown). This is the place where I always end up eating because it’s just near my place and very affordable.
Let us start with my drink, I had a wintermelon juice. I believe the juice itself is warm and they just put ice in it when they’re about to serve it. The drink was not cold enough at first so I have to ask for a glass of ice and it was so much better after!
Of course you have to order their dumplings for your appetizer! You have the option to have it steamed, deep fried or both.
Steam and fried Kuchay Dumplings
This is my favorite the ultimate pork chop rice! The crunchy pork chop that is twice the size of your palm and it is accompanied with clear soup and vegetables. The rice is served with a brown sauce on top that gives an “adobo” like taste. Don’t forget to try their homemade chili sauce!
