I went to Brewfest the year before and I loved it so when our office offered free tickets again, I took them in a heartbeat.

Rustic Mornings by Isabelo is one of the most loved secrets here in Marikina City and I, being a proud Marikeño who is a fearless foodie myself, will share to you a special place and restaurant that is close to my heart. I go here mostly during my birthday because there is no other place I’d like to have breakfast in on my special day. It is the secret garden in Marikina and every time I step into this beautiful restaurant, its as if I’m in a whole other world.

ELYU: Flotsam & Jetsam + Makai Bowls!

Flotsam & Jetsam is the absolute place to be in San Juan, La Union. It is a well loved hostel and known for its cozy, rustic aura. They say that people who stay here all become friends—no strangers.

But one of the selling points, for me, is their delicious and refreshing Makai Bowls!
