Today I met up with Ace Bright the super lovely coordinator for the Azkals or Philippine Men’s Football Team. I also met for the first time Ebong, the BlueHairedFan and energetic force behind the Kaholerso (the official booster squad of the Azkals).

In the past Ku De Ta has been known to be the go-to bar for sunset cocktails in Seminyak. But that may be changing with Potato Head in town. This 3 restaurant mega complex with a pool (free towel service!) and shop has everything you need for a luxe resort lifestyle!
Last weekend I had guests from Manila, designer Twinkle Ferraren and her sister Happy. They totally deserved those sparkly happy names since my day with them was literally a laugh trip. I haven’t laughed so much in an entire day in I don’t know how long! Gosh. I wish we took more photos, but then [read more]
I was invited by Sharon of Artisan’s Table to attend this wonderful event called Meet the Makers which is held twice a year. I love attending their events (Artisan’s Table and Borneo Chic) because it is not only for the sake of shopping or buying something but I get to surround myself with (wearable) art and [read more]
For our trip to Ubud I asked a few friends for recommendations on where to stay and we ended up with the recommendation of Travels with a Gourmet: Gaya Fusion villas. We arrived one late evening to stay at Villa Bambu. It literally took my breath away. Photos after the jump!
Just received an invitation from my friend Mutya Laxa Buensuceso, owner and creative force behind the uber chic baby line SPINKIE and TULLERIE, to this open house event on November 3. Perfect! I am really hoping I wont be too tired to catch it! I’ve drooled over all the cute Spinkie stuff online but I [read more]
I love shopping for Silver in Bali, much more than in Yogyakarta for 2 reasons, it’s cheaper and the designs are more edgy and modern. Normally I go to ANOM Silver (on the way to Ubud) because it’s really cheap and good for basic pieces, but the rest of the designs are more old-fashioned. So [read more]
I was saying in my last post about Menega Cafe how utterly slow service was just because of how packed it is during dinner. If you want to have the completely opposite experience but still enjoy the delicious food, then drop by Menega on a weekday during lunch time. You order will come out faster [read more]
I’ve been following Travels with a Gourmet for quite some time now. Reading about her culinary adventures in her current home: Bali. So at one of our trips to Bali, we finally got a chance to meet up for tea at The Bar in the fabulous Bulgari Hotel in Bali. I arrived at the hotel’s [read more]
If you are living in the Nusa Dua area and would like yummy food, check out Matsuri Japanese Restaurant. So far I’ve been disappointed with the Bali Collection establishments, like The Poan and Uno Italian Resto (only the quattro formaggi pizza was good) and nearby Musashi Japanese Resto (only the Gindara Teriyaki was yummy). Matsuri is [read more]
I’ve already mentioned the shortage of good restaurants in Nusa Dua. I found that there was a Japanese Restaurant called Musashi in the area and since it was after TD’s meeting and it was quite late already we were too hungry to go any further. Musashi is literally 2 minutes by car from Marriott Courtyard. [read more]
Ever since our first trip to Ubud Bali last year we’ve always wanted to check out Mozaic Restaurant. This time around it was no different but when it came to making reservation (which is a must for dinner) we again scrutinized all of our options and found the place to pricey. Instead we chose to [read more]
Gubug Mang Enking is something that I enjoyed trying in Bali. The set-up is down-to-earth, using native materials in creative ways. Nothing fabulous, but simply cooked seafood and it’s best-selling tender beef ribs. What makes it different are the huts on top of the water. It reminds me of ISDAAN Restaurant in Tarlac – on [read more]
We finally got to eat in Menaga Cafe Jimbaran! We wanted to go the last 2 times we went to Bali this year, ever since we tried the famous Warung Menega in Lombok (think the owners are related) which is still the BEST meal I’ve ever had in Indonesia. I have to qualify that I [read more]
I mentioned to you guys in a earlier post, that I would be placing my other Umbra Conceal Grande invisible bookshelf in the study for easy access to books that I refer to regularly. I’m happy that it (secretly) matches the silver, industrial look of our study. My go-to books. You can tell I’m passionate about [read more]
This is our second stay at Marriott Courtyard and after spending almost 2 weeks last time, I feel so at home! Glad to be enjoying their breakfasts again. Photos after the jump!
I’ve had several requests for where TD and I order our lechon in Jakarta so I think it deserves a post of it’s own. In Jakarta lechon (roast suckling pig) is called Babi Guling La Filipina. Contact number of where you can order it from after the jump! This is the only photo I have [read more]
Just wanna give you a quick update on my Neverending Vanilla Extract. It’s been two weeks and the color has been looking great. It’s getting darker and darker! I hope it tastes as good as expect it to be in 4 to 6 more weeks! Photo after the jump.
I promised several people I would post this recipe on my blog so here it is. The concept was adapted from Sweet Tooth’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Cup recipe, however the recipe for the peanut butter mousse was adapted from Better Homes and Gardens, while the chocolate cup shell was from researching how to substitute real [read more]
For those of you who liked the stuff that you saw in the Artisans Table Open House, I think you will be interested in attending this! More details after the jump!
