Cityscapes: Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila

Hey guys! Work has kept me busy… and uninspired. I know there’s this idea that ‘the more you write, the better you get’, but it just seems that lately the more I write, the less inspired I am lol. Not just on the articles that I’m writing for work, but also this space, which is supposedly where I can write without inhibition. Maybe I’m burnt … Continue reading Cityscapes: Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila

Review: Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings @ Crossroads BGC, Bonifacio Global City

The gods of fried chicken wings hath spoken, and they have declared Frankie’s the best in town. … okay, maybe not. But they’ve certainly earned a spot in my book, ever since I had a taste of their excellent buffalo wings at SM Aura Premier on my last visit to Manila. This time around, I pestered the Boy until he relented and brought me to … Continue reading Review: Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings @ Crossroads BGC, Bonifacio Global City

Travelogue Manila: Explore Filipino History At Ayala Museum, Makati

As someone who loves history and culture, there’s one thing I really like about Manila – the museums! Not only are they full of interesting exhibits, they’re also pretty well maintained (well, at least the ones I’ve been to).  On my most recent visit, the Boy and I visited Ayala Museum, located close to the Greenbelt shopping area in Makati. Established in 1967, the museum … Continue reading Travelogue Manila: Explore Filipino History At Ayala Museum, Makati

Travelogue: Saturdays At Salcedo Market, Makati

Hey guys! So it’s my fourth time visiting Manila – you’d think I’d be bored and running out of things to do by now – but this city has a way of surprising me. Morning was overcast, but the Boy and I decided there was enough sun to go visit Salcedo Market – an open-air artisan/organic/food market located in the heart of Makati. Held every … Continue reading Travelogue: Saturdays At Salcedo Market, Makati

Travelogue Manila: Best Place To Catch The Sunset – Bay Area Amusement Park @ SM Mall of Asia

Manila is touted for its sunsets, and one of the best places to catch it is at the Bay Area Amusement Park, just across the road from SM Mall of Asia. Reminiscent of Santa Monica Beach in LA, the area has a carnival-esque atmosphere, with a giant ferris wheel overlooking the bay, rides and game stalls. We arrived just in time for sunset, where the … Continue reading Travelogue Manila: Best Place To Catch The Sunset – Bay Area Amusement Park @ SM Mall of Asia

Nadai Fujisoba@ Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

When it comes to Japanese noodles, ramen tends to get more attention – so it’s nice to see a place dedicated to two lesser known (but no less delicious!) counterparts – udon and soba. Like it’s name, Nadai Fujisoba specialises in soba, or buckwheat, noodles. The chain is popular in Japan, but has also made its way to Bonifacio Global City in Metro Manila. Located along High … Continue reading Nadai Fujisoba@ Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila

Bonifacio Global City, also known as The Fort or BGC for short, is a central business district sandwiched between Makati and Taguig. After the hustle and bustle of downtown Manila, stepping into its commercial area, High Street, felt a little surreal. Clean and well-paved streets free from belching jeepneys, people walking their dogs or jogging, skyscrapers and high-end retail/restaurants reminded me more of Singapore than … Continue reading Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila
