Krispy Kreme opens in SM CDO Downtown Premier

I was introduced to Krispy Kreme few years ago when I was still in Cebu. It took a few weeks before the queue can be described as “bearable”. Imagine the agony of wanting to eat their glazed doughnuts but you can’t take the queue. What made it worse? That branch was just across the building…

Bike Republic Cafe

There’s a new cafe in town that serves really delish churros and great burgers! Two of my faves in one place. It’s a plus if you’re a bike enthusiast because you can hang out in there for hours and talk to their staff about the bikes that they sell and biking in general. Yes, their…

Bean Voyage Coffee Roasters, CDO

I’ve lived in Cagayan de Oro for almost two years now and I still can’t keep up with the cafes and restaurants within Divisoria. There’s always something new! My husband and I tend to be very loyal every time we like a certain food outlet. We usually take time before we finally move on and…

Bowties & Butter, CDO

It has been two years since my husband and I settled here in Cagayan de Oro. We’ve been loyal to our favourite restaurants and cafes to the point that it’s like a risk for us to try something new. Recently, it has been challenging squeezing in a quick date due to work and law school….

Meow Cafe, CDO

Yes, there’s a cat cafe in town! My husband has been fond of cats since I don’t know when. Even when we were still just friends, he’d tell me about the adventures of his cat, Batman – a stray cat that was found on the street. Stories like how Batman will hunt or demand for…

Moon Shack, CDO

It’s a Wednesday, middle of the week, I’m halfway there. Rewarding myself with good food falls on this day, too. It’s usually this day when we go out and try something new or go back to one of our favourite food outlets. Earlier this week, a friend posted about Moon Shack. I knew shack means…

POPS All Filipino Eatery CDO

So many thoughts while checking out this new restaurant in town – POPS All Filipino Eatery. If you know me personally, I have a close-knit family and most of my friends are those I’ve known all my life. Yes, I’m all about gatherings. My parents used to host a small gathering at home during Sundays,…

First Impression: Cafe de Coral, Hong Kong

I was in Hong Kong for a few days to attend a business meeting, part of the job that I do is to meet potential and existing clients. The hotel that the company booked was in a mostly private district. It’s often tagged as where business people usually stays. Judging by that description, I already…

First Impression: Dinner Buffet, Baiyoke Sky Hotel, Bangkok

Two months ago, my Mom and I went on a tri-country trip. Our second stop was in Bangkok, Thailand. It’s a fascinating city, rich in history and culture that’s still evident up to today. We arrived early in the morning, checked in to our hotel and went on a city tour. Prior to our trip,…

First Impression: Food in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Last June, my Mom and I went on a tri-country trip. Our last stop was Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Located in the southern part of the country, it’s commonly known as Saigon and played a vital role during the Vietnam War. Ho Chi Minh offers a lot of historic and cultural sites. It…

First Impression: Food in Ayutthaya, Thailand

Last June, my Mom and I went on a tri-country trip. We visited Bangkok & Ayutthaya in Thailand, Siem Reap in Cambodia and Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. Ayutthaya is about 80 kilometers north of Bangkok. It’s the capital of the Kingdom of Siam. This city is known as an ancient, gorgeous city with all…
