Seafood Island Northshore Grill

       I'm not really a fan of sea foods but when we (group of 10 hungry people) once looked for a place to eat after a tiresome day, we thought  of eating in a buffet. So I thought, why not? We all grew up by the way in the province so we're used to "kamayan" or "boodle fight". We're a group of five hungry boys and another five equally hungry girls looking for somewhere to eat. And when a friend who've already tried eating at this place before recommended it, everyone else agreed.

       Seafood Island offers a wide array of choices of everything under the sea. The concept is very Filipino, boodle feast over a banana leaves perfect way to bond with your family and friends. I have heard Seafood Island before and have always wanted to try eating here. So we decided to go to their branch at Mall of Asia since it's the nearest.

       My friend ordered the Tali Beach and Mt. Apo. I don't know why they named it this way. After few minutes of waiting, our jaws had dropped, we've got hungrier, and are ready to devour the food. Sounds exaggerated but yes, we really are hungry that time.

Tali Beach
       Tali Beach includes: Pork Barbecue, Chicken Inasal, Grilled Tilapia, Grilled Squid, Grilled Talong, Grilled Tomatoes, Steamed White Shrimps, Steamed Crabs, Sauteed Tahong, Lato, Green Mango, Watermelon, and Steamed Rice with Crispy Dulong. Good for 2-3 persons P995; good for 4-6 persons P1,345.

Mt. Apo
        On this menu we've got: Imbao sa Buco, steamed crabs, grilled liempo, inihaw na manok sa gata, grilled squid, steamed shrimps, fried tilapia, kinilaw na tangigue, balbakwa, ensaladang lato with crispy dilis and salted fish rice. Good for 5-7 persons P1,650. And I was wrong! It's not everything under the sea.

The restaurant also serves other boodle options wittingly named as Magellan's Landing, Panlasang Pinoy, Fiesta Bicolandia, Tali Beach, Palawan Shores, Dapitan's Pride and Boracay Feast. It's like traveling around the Philippine with your palate with each "Boodle Feast" showcasing different seafood dishes that you will really love. How much? It costs around 700 to 900 pesos for a boodle feast good for 3-4 persons and 1,000 to 1,300 pesos for a boodle feast good for 5-6 persons. Quite cheap huh! Dividing the bill among your group, you really wouldn't be spending that much. - See more at:

Shortly before the fight
        Overall, we enjoyed our early dinner at Seafood Islands in Mall of Asia. I have nothing much to say. The food is good. The price is fair enough. The location is by the way at the seaside of the Mall of Asia, adds to the island atmosphere of the place. The staffs are nice, courteous and attentive.We even had them took our photographs for several times. -Jon-
Overall, we enjoyed our early dinner at Seafood Islands in Mall of Asia. I love the idea of eating on a banana leaf and just get whatever food you want or what's still available at your table. It makes me feel like I was transported on an island or a beach resort enjoying the sound of the waves and the cool breeze of the air! Hahaha!

The staffs are nice, courteous and attentive. The quality and taste of food is good. The restaurant's ambiance is cool and conducive for long dining experience with family and friends. It was certainly a fun and memorable Seafood Island experience! We had a great time! - See more at: -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,…
