Osaka Photo Compilation Video
Last year (June 2019) my family and I had a chance to visit Osaka, Kyoto and Nara. It’s a trip we look back to with fond memories. Hopefully this pandemic will end soon with a vaccine available. Can’t wait to visit Japan again (God willing). Here is a video compilation of some of the photos […]

Bittersweet Pilgrimage to Antonio’s
Antonio’s Fine Dining is our family’s happy place in Tagaytay. It’s a place we travel to maybe twice a year for the ambiance and for (in my personal opinion) the best steak I’ve ever tasted.
Last week the Philippines observed All Saint’s day (Nov. 1, 2018) and due to the date’s proximity to the weekend, the dates worked out for a long holiday weekend for many Filipinos with Nov. 2 (Friday) declared as an additional holiday and many offices having no work on Saturdays.

“HOME” Kong 2018
Hong Kong is a vibrant mix of east and west whose blood stream is pure capitalism and retail. I love Hong Kong!
