Sulyap Gallery Cafe & Restaurant: Experience a Taste of the Past

17 May

Last week I had a chance to travel to San Pablo, Laguna with my friends and cousin for business. A friend of mine who’s from San Pablo recommend this historical place for us to have our lunch. It was an impromptu trip so I was not able to bring my camera so have to make the best out of an Iphone.

When I went inside the restaurant I really feel living in a spanish era from the tables, chairs, windows, paintings, photos and some vintage items.

Instead of waiting for our food at our table we went to their gallery / museum. Where they showcase vintage items and furnitures, it’s a must visit for place vintage lovers since everything in the museum are personal collection.

After the museum we head back to the restaurant and had our lunch.

Bangus Belly P340

The bangus belly (milkfish) is really to die for it’s very delicious and fatty!

Sinigang na Liempo P360

Sinigang na Liempo is basically a pork belly sour soup with mixed vegetables.

Beef Tapa P350

Kulawong ng talong P310

Kulawong ng talong is basically a grilled pork belly mixed with smoked eggplant in a coconut milk sauce. You have an option here if you want to have an eggplant or puso ng saging.

Try to check this place if your in the area they’re open Monday – Sunday 10am-10pm.

A Day in Paradise

9 May

Summer heat is to hot to handle around the metro, sweating here and there with the combination of the pollution. So me and my cousin went on a trip to Cebu, Philippines to enjoy the heat at the beach! It’s only about an hour flight from Manila to Cebu so it’s a quick getaway!

We went to Shangri-la Mactan Spa and Resort, aside from it’s famous name I believe that Shangri-la Mactan has the most beautiful beach in Cebu not to mention their friendly staff and great service.

Please ignore my happy feet because I got carried away with view. 🙂

Good Morning World!

They also have kiddie pools and adult pools if your not into sands and salt water. The view is also superb with their own infinity pool and they also got a water massage on the side, truly perfect for relaxation.

A perfect clean blue pool with matching trees and flowers to relax you.

In case you get bored, they also offer several water sports such as jetski, scuba diving, para-sailing, snorkling and lot more!

When your hungry stomach decided to disturb you no worries there are plenty of food and beverage outlets near the beach and pool.

The other part of the beach which is nearer to the Ocean View rooms has a finer sand and less crowded than the one nearer on the bar.

Truly a perfect place for relaxation! You should give it a try!
