[Travel] Siquijor Island

Have you ever fascinated about something mystical?

They say that Siquijor Island is a mystical islands in the Philippines. But having its title as mystical, it makes the island so attractive to tourist and explorers like me. 

I went to Siquijor Island for a day-trip with some of my friends. 

The nearest airport from Siquijor is Dumaguete Domestic Airport. an approximately 1.5 hours away from Manila. From the airport, ride a tricycle to port of Dumaguete and get a ticket for an hour ride to the Mystical Island of Siquijor.

I love white sand beaches! That is why from the moment I step upon the island I was mesmerize by the white sand beach that greets you at the port.

The Beach welcomes you to Siquijor

The island has a lot to offer from waterfalls, beaches, old architecture and adventure!

[Travel] Penang, Malaysia

Penang is known as Pearl of the Orient. This diverse state of Malaysia has a lot to offer.

This was my first time in Malaysia and I choose to explore Penang first for an awesome food trip and cultural experience. 

From Ninoy Aquino International Airport, you'll arrived at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 from a 4-hour plane ride. from there I took a bus to TBS  or Terminal Bersepadu Selatan an hour and got a bus ticket to Sg. Nibong, Penang for 5 hours. It was kinda long travel time but I had a great experience with the bus terminal transfers and bus rides. I suggest booked a ticket online for bus tickets or you can just have a connecting flight to Penang from Kuala Lumpur.

The famous street art of Georgetown in Lebuh Armenian
Georgetown, Penang's capital, is a UNESCO heritage site. From there I explore the alleys of Penang.

[Food Trip] SALT - Makati

People in the metro already knew about Salt in Makati. They have been featured in magazines, blog and listed on crowd-source food reviews. This restaurant, located in an urban village in Brgy. Poblacion, Makati, has a rustic vibe. You'll truly appreciate the ambiance that is cozy.

How's the food?

The restaurant is considered as a steakhouse by many.  On the menu, we can only find one entree of steak - T-Bone Steak!

T-Bone Steak

Their T-Bone steak is affordable. 190php steak comes with two sides of rice and a potato salad and comes with a barbeque sauce. You can also request for a gravy if want. Better tell the servers if you want your steak to be medium well or rare because based from our experience they haven't ask it prior. The steak is good. It has a juicy meat and well-seasoned.
