G-Spot Burger Bar

            Few months ago, a new burger joint called G-Spot Burger Bar in Sta Mesa, Manila made rounds online and took the public by storm. The students from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines and people of Sta Mesa were among its first patrons but due to word of mouth and the social media, in the blink of an eye,  everyone goes gaga about it. In few weeks time, this burger joint was inundated by customers from around the metro eager to know what fuzz is all about. I, too, want to know why.

The Spot

        The place is a garage. There are around 9 tables which can accommodate approximately 50 customers at a time. They are open Monday-Saturday at 3:00PM-10:00PM. They said there is always a queue so we went there at around 3:00PM and luckily customers are still few but before we finish eating, the place is already full and people outside starts to queue.

The Menu

       What makes G-Spot Burger different from other burgers like Zarks, Yvan Navy, Army Navy and the like? This was the same question I have when I first saw it in pictures. Well, reason is simple, it tastes as good as it looks. Shout-out to those colorful buns!

Maria Ozawa
       Maria Ozawa (not the Japanese AV superstar) is one of their bestsellers. It is made of beef patty, teriyaki sauce, pineapple, cheese, bacon wrapped, enoki mushroom, lettuce and tomato plus a fries with cheese sauce. Each stuff complements each other. It's mouth watering at first glance but even more once you taste it. All these at a very affordable price of PHP115.00.

Johnny Be Good
       Then there's Johnny Be Good. It is made of beef patty, hungarian sausage, onion jam, bechamel, mustard, lettuce, onion and tomato. My friend ordered this so I can't tell you how it tastes. But he said it's all worth it at just PHP75.00.

Choco Float and Lemonade at PHP25.00
       There are lot of options and I can't wait to go back to try a new one. As of this writing, prices range from PHP55 to PHP175 and all drinks are at PHP25.

Why G-Spot?

        My friends on Facebook be like, "We found the G-Spot!" and I thought of something else (if you know what I mean). I messaged the bar's Facebook page and found out that "G" stands for Germaine (the owner) and also means Gourmet Burgers. The Spot stands for a place. So basically it's a place of Germaine and Gourmet Burgers. Just like that! 

How to get there?

       The location is very accessible. It is located at 1945 Anonas St., Santa Mesa, Manila, in front of the PUP College of Communications and steps away from the PUP College of Eng'g and Architecture. If you're from the North, you can take a bus or MRT and drop off at Cubao. From there you can hop on to the LRT2 Cubao Station and drop off at the Pureza Station or you can take Cubao-Divisoria jeepney and ask the driver to drop you off at Pureza. The landmark is LRT2 Pureza station.

       If you're from Mandaluyong  or Pasig area, you can ride a Pasig-Quiapo jeepney and ask the driver to drop you off at Pureza.

      If you're from south, you can take MRT and drop off at Shaw Blvd Station then ride a Pasig-Quiapo jeepney. If you're from Pasay area, you can ride the LRT1 Edsa Station and drop off at Doroteo Jose Station then ride the LRT2 Recto Station then drop off at Pureza Station.

      You must be hungry by now so from Pureza St, go towards the direction where Jollibee is located. This will take about 7 minutes of walking or you can ride a tricycle or "padyak". Now walk straight ahead until you pass by the PUP College of Eng'g campus, and turn left. You're now at the Anonas St and walk for few minutes until you reach the PUP College of Communications. The burger joint is in front of it. Congratulations, you're good at finding the G-Spot!

       So if you're looking for an ultimate foodgasm experience that doesn't hurt a wallet that much, then G-Spot Burger is a must try. Hashtag foodporn! -Jon-

Diwata Imacoto Beach | Rediscovering Oas, Albay

Summer has got to be my favorite time of the year. It means a lot of torrid sunlight, a lot of sweating and dehydration at some point, but there are so many ways to beat it and the open sea is the key. Behind the lush mountains of my hometown Oas in Albay province lies a haven many would think doesn't exist, even an Oas native like me. Up above its coastal areas, a paradise is waiting to be rediscovered. There I found the Diwata Imacoto Beach in the barangay of Cagmanaba. Its name was derived from the owners surname. With its crystal clear waters, white sand, and tranquil atmosphere, everyone will find it a perfect place to unwind without having to spend that much. The place is under-developed and I must say it is whole lot better that way.

       There are many good beaches in Albay and  I'm just glad that my hometown had a good share of it. People from all over the town frequented this beach especially during summer. People from neighboring towns have also had experie…

Burj Park: A Patch of Green in Downtown Dubai

With all the massive and high-rise buildings spread all over the city, it's a breath of fresh air to find a green spot in the middle of the city where you can simply lie down in the grass under the shade of few trees while marveling at the ever changing skyline of Dubai. Just around the Burj Khalifa you'll find this tiny park called Burj Park.

       There are bicycles in the area that are up for rent. The place is also a venue for mini concerts and events. At the time I went here, there is a stage being set up for an event. The place is also ideal for yoga or zumba classes and provides a resting place for joggers around the area.
       Just beside the park is the newly opened Dubai Opera, a state-of-the-art venue for opera, theatre, concerts, art exhibitions, orchestra, film, sports events, and seasonal programmes in Downtown Dubai's Opera District. The stunning architecture adds to the already  amazing structure of the whole Downtown Dubai complex.

Rediscovering Oas, Albay: Barangay Cagmanaba

Oas is a first class municipality in Albay province. I was born and had grew up there. Most of my fondest childhood memories were here. Up above its coastal areas, a paradise is waiting to be rediscovered. It's the barangay  of Cagmanaba. With its crystal clear waters, fine white sand, and islets, it could be the next top tourist attraction of the province. We're lucky to saw it in its still virgin state.
Where is Oas?
      Oas is in the Bicol peninsula, southeast of Luzon. From Manila, you can take a bus from the terminals in Cubao or Pasay and embark on a 10-hour journey to the south. Or, to make life easy, get on a plane to Legazpi City, hail a bus at Legazpi’s terminal and after an hour on the road, hop off at the public market of Oas. Well-traveled men and hobbits, when asked of places to see in Albay, would perhaps not mention this town. Their list, most likely, will include the regulars: the world-famous Mayon Volcano, the Cagsawa Ruins of Daraga, Misibis…

The Waterfall, Dubai Mall

Dubai Mall is more than just the largest mall in the world by total space. Aside from home to the world's most luxurious brands, a massive aquarium, it also features unique concepts and design that the world has never seen. One thing that surely caught mall-goers eye is The Waterfall. This massive waterfall runs through the four levels of the mall and features art sculptures of human divers made of fiberglass creating the illusion as if they really are diving from the top to bottom.

       Dubai Mall being so vast, the Waterfall is a very good meeting point for families and friends. Coffee shops and retail outlets overlooks the waterfall. Some palm trees were also set up to to make the ambiance of a desert oasis.

       With expansions going on, we can only expect that Dubai Mall will be adding more attractions to keep up with the interests of the growing visitors of the mall.

How to get there?
       Take the Metro Red Line and get off at Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall Station. T…

Ligñon Hill Nature Park | Rediscovering Legazpi City

Legazpi City is the capital of Albay province. It is often called as the City of Fun and Adventure. Why? First, the city  is a land of happy people. Tourists can say how warm and welcoming the locals are. The city is also blessed with natural tourist spots which drew thousands of local and foreign visitors. Mayon Volcano is definitely the Hall of Famer when it comes  to the top destination the tourists want to see  but in recent years, a lot of tourism projects and developments were done hence boosting the growth of the city. One of the places you should  visit whenever visiting the city is the Ligñon Hill Nature Park in Bogtong, Legazpi City.

       For years, the hill had become one of the most visited landmark in he city. The summit rises to about 512 feet (156 meters). It offers a 360 degree panoramic view of the Mayon Volcano, the downtown Legazpi City and neighboring towns, and the Albay gulf. The place is perfect for sightseers, adventure seekers, and to those who want…

Bambusetum | Kawa-Kawa Hills | Ligao City, Albay

On the slopes of Kawa-Kawa Hills in Tuburan, Ligao City, Albay lies another attraction that has been drawing thousands of visitors since it opened in 2014. The place is called Bambusetum. From the name itself, it is quite easy to guess what it is about. It's a one hectare sanctuary for a variety of the mighty grass we all know, the bamboo. It adds a generous amount of green to the already lush and verdant fields of the hill. It is made possible thru the DENR, the City Government of Ligao and Cong. Fernando Gonzales.

       I so loved green and everybody knows that, but what's fascinating about this bambusetum is that it serves a gene bamboo bank and plantation to propagate the said grass and therefore ultimately creating a bamboo forest, and bingo, a tourist attraction.

       The bambusetum houses local species such as Anos (Schizostachyum lima), Bayog (Bambusa merrilliana), Bikal (Schizostachyum dielsianum), Botong (Gigantochloa levis), Buho (Schizostachyum lumampao,…
