Savoy Hotel Manila in Newport City

Savoy Hotel Manila in Newport City

I love spaces, clean lines and functionality. I think it is what the new hotel, Savoy Hotel Manila is all about. Located in Andrews Avenue, Newport City, which is just a kilometer away from the airport.

Postcards from Greece [Photo Diary featuring Moto Z2 Play] 

I will always have a love affair with photographs and memories. I love taking photos even before social media and photo-sharing sites have become popular. I take photos of food, places, tickets, moments and what-nots.

I didn't start good though. I still laugh (and cringe) whenever I check the old photos I took - and how un-pretty my editing style was. But everyday we learn new things. Everyday we discover new tools and styles.

Ciudad de Victoria is a 140-hectare tourism zone in Bulacan where the Philippine Arena, the world's largest indoor arena is located. It has an entertainment hall, leisure park and sports complex.  Ciudad de Victoria is the newest attraction in the Philippines with the opening of The Garden. 

When mom told me that we have special pass to visit the newly opened The Garden in Ciudad de Victoria, I said okay and brought my camera.

Trying Out Tenya's Ramen: TempuRamen 

There is always something comforting about eating Ramen. I don't know where the Filipinos got its love for Ramen. Maybe it is rooted from our love for instant cup noodles (back then, this is the closest we could taste the hearty Japanese dish) . 

It is a joy to have more and more Ramen Restaurants opening in Manila. 

During our 8-day trip in Greece, Rodel and I suddenly dreamed of Ramen  😁😁😁 We suddenly craved for something very Asian.

On our last day in Taiwan, we decided to be a little tourist-y and visited the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. 

We only had the morning and afternoon to spare as we needed to be in the aiport at 6:00 PM for the 9:00 flight back to Manila.
