We all are foodie. I don’t believe anyone who will say they don’t like to eat. That is a complete blasphemy. What I believe though is that sometimes or more often than not we all get tired of eating. Eating the same stuff all over again.
A few days ago, I was invited by Century City Mall to celebrate with them their first Christmas as a mall. The invite included a one-of-a-kind foodie experience at their just recently opened to the public Hole in the Wall.
Hole in the Wall is the new upscale food hub located at the 4th level of Century City Mall in Makati. It has nine different food consignees run by 9 different chef offering unique food and dining experience for this latest IT mall in Makati.
One of my favorite food discovery at Hole in the Wall is Scout’s Honor. Scout’s Honor is a make-your-own cookie stop which means every cookie flavor is unique since you decide what to put in your cookie!
Scout’s Honor Chef and owner he assembled my cookie for me and baked it for 7 minutes.
Tiny Duchess makes Sweet and Savory eclairs. If you love eclairs then you’ll love this one!
Delicious eclairs at Tiny Duchess Hole in the Wall
Green Cheese. They make soft and fluffy cheesecake. I super love their cheesecake it is not too heavy and no umay factor. I can eat the whole cake myself.
Green Cheese owner right side with her bakers/staff. All cakes are made fresh from the oven.
I was trying to eat light during the visit so I had the Fresh Lumpia and Vegetarian Barbecue from PhoBobo
PhoBoBo serves Korean style noodles. This is their Vegetarian Barbecue. I love the freshness of the vegies and how the eggplant was grilled to perfection. The soup makes all the difference.
PhoBoBo’s Fresh Lumpia. Vegies are fresh the sauce is really good. Kinda spicy, nutty and tangy at the same time really blends well with the vegies.
But then again I wanna try them all so I ordered a sandwich at Mister Delicious. Mister Delicious serves clubhouse style sandwiches good for 2 if you are my size haha.
I had the Mister Delicious Classic Corned Beef Reuben made of Wagyu Beef. All sandwiches are served with Camote chips.
Mister Delicious classic BLT.
Then there’s Kwong’s where Melo had this noodles
Kwongs Noodles at Hole in the Wall Century City Mall Makati
Bad Bird and their famous Umami Fried Chicken
Kwong’s famous chicken wings!
Other food stalls available are Posporo, Spruce, Liberation Shawarma. Check this video for a look and feel and a virtual tour of the entire Hole in The Wall and see for yourself
Virtual Tour of Hole in the Wall Century City Mall Makati
At the moment, Hole in the Wall is open for dinner only from 5pm to 10pm daily , as they are doing a test run at the moment and see if their food concessionaires can cope up. They want to maintain the quality of the food they serve as everything is fresh and made to order.
It was such a great food experience there I will definitely go back. It was fun to have tried it with real foodies like Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet and Melo Villareal of Out of Town Blog. Hannah Villasis of Flair Candy, Rowena Wendy Lei of Animetric and Jackie Go was also there but did not get a chance for a photo with them!
Hopefully by next month Hole in the Wall Century City Mall will be open for lunch time then dinner time. It is located at Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City near Gramercy Residences, A Venue and Buddha Bar.

A very hister day transpired during our roadtrip to Pancake House Lipa Batangas yesterday.
If you’ve seen the movie ‘Almost Famous’ you know what my hipster reference is all about. If not, the movie was about the adventures of a Rolling Stone writer following a rock band on a roadshow for a ‘life in a day of a rockstar kind of article’ for the magazine. It will show you what literally happens while the band is on the road inside their party bus, the only means of traveling used by rockstars back then to do a state to state concert. Having lots of time on the road in their ‘party bus’ all sorts of fun and drama happens.
Fast forward to today, party buses are now only used for luxury one-of-a-kind partying experience. Used at wedding showers or pub-crawling in the city.
While I am not a rockstar or having a bridal shower at that, I was able to experience a hipster ride in the Black Fleet with a few fellow bloggers. It was our ride for a trip to Lipa, Batangas from Metro Manila and back to visit the first Pancake House store in Lipa carrying the new look and feels under the Max’s Group of Company!
So what’s so special about this Pancake House beanch that we have to travel by The Black Fleet?
The branch in Lipa Is the first to feature the famed restaurant’s new look. From the logo down to the landscaping details, Pancake House has managed to start anew while staying loyal to its roots.
Shack, Shelter, Shed
The Inspiration for Pancake’s new look came to Jim Fuentebella (Branding Director of Max’s Group Inc) upon seeing the construction space for its branch in Lipa City. He describes, “Its long and narrow facade reminded me of a shed.
Jim continues: “The first three words that came to mind was shack (functionality), shelter (comfort), and shed (accessibility). If you look at the things those words are associated with, they are actually the same things used to describe Pancake House.”
According to Jim, the brand’s new design concept is all about comfort and finding a place where everything one needs is already there—just tike home.
The new old
The logo, on the other hand, now shows a new interpretation of the restaurant’s famed house symbol,
While the look changed the taste of our all-time favorites never changed. This Crab ans Mango Salad is my favorite.
Pancake House Crepe
The famous Spaghetti! Shakes and Roast Beef
It was a coincidence to dine with Batangas Vice Governor Mark Leviste at the Pancake House who said he frequents Pancake House because it is a comfort food for him and his family. Having sweets or pancakes with the pair of kapeng Barako from Batangas is something he always enjoy, he said.
Max’s Group Inc led by Jim Fuentebella with Vice Governor Mark Leviste and son at Pancake House Lipa Batangas
Vice Governor Mark Leviste was curious about The Black Fleet so we let him have a peek inside and have a party with us! Haha!
We did not tour around Lipa as time is short but we are waiting for Vice Gov invite as he said he would. He also head the Tourism Council of Lipa he said.
Here is a short video clip to show you more about The Black Fleet ride
Don’t be surprised of one of these days you’ll see an on-going construction of a large ship by the Manila Bay beside the SM Mall of Asia. It is not Noah’s Arc being recreated or the second Noah because another great flood is coming, it is a construction of The Galèon- a new museum to rise in Manila by the end of 2015!
The SM Group of Companies in collaboration with Museo Del Galeón, Inc. held the ground-breaking ceremony for The Galèon Museum Manila , enivisioned to be a worthy addition to the community of museums, to open in late 2015.
His Excellency Ambassador Julio Camarena of Mexico and Hans T. Sy initiated the ground- breaking ceremony at the Mall of Asia. Also present was Pasay City Mayor, the Honorable Antonio G. Calixto. The program featured Ms. Marian Roces, Lead Curator of TAO Inc. as the keynote speaker, and Senator Edgardo J. Angara who is also a member of Museo Del Galeon, Inc.
The Manila – Acapulco Galleon Museum will be a cultural facility with an 8,000 sqm. Total exhibition space, featuring a full-scale reproduction of a magnificent galleon. Unlike all other galleon reproductions attempted before in the Philippines, the new museum bases its reproduction on a very precise set of naval architectural plan published in 18th century Manila.
The Galeon Museum Manila will convey accuraye, exciting information that will throw light on the roots of today’s banking, shipping, commerce, and cultural exchange in the Pacific region.
Silver, gold, and potatoes from the Americas and wine, tools, and furniture from Europe were traded for
Asian silk, spices, and ceramics in global circuits that are still used today by more than 40 modern nations.
The 300 year exchange produced extraordinary cultural change on both sides ol the Pacific. Notably, the thousand year old tradition of boat-building in the Philippine archipelago transitioned into ship-building according to European design.
When Madame Margarita Zavala spouse of former Mexican President Felipe Calderon, visited the Philippines in 2011, she enthusiastically endorsed the plan to build a galleon museum in Manila .
This is situated beside the SM MOA IMAX! I can’t wait!

There’s only two options either you stayed at home did a movie marathon and got interrupted by trick or treaters from time to time or you were one of the thousands who troopped to the “it” bars in BGC/Makati/Quezon City and wore costume and partied the night away.
I was the later. At 7pm I was already walking at BGC with my Halloween look on for the first party of the night. The Globe Halloween Night where they introduced Globe’s Lifestyle Bundles perfect for the millenials who are having online/mobile dependency.
Globe Lifestyle Bundles includes Shopping, Navigation, Chat, Work and Photo bundles that suits your needs starting at Php99.00 a month.
To know more about the Globe Lifestyle Bundles visit www.globe.com.ph/lifestylebundles
The event was held as Skinny Mike in BGC where the traditional Skinny Mike’s Quiz Night also happened with a drink-off between female members of the teams to break a tie!
But my mosr favorite part of my night was seeing people making an effoet to come in their Halloween costunes/attire.
The “Shopping” team table! Love the costumes! Sailor Moon, Pin Head and the winner of the Best in Costume the Living Dead Pirate of Pirates of the Carribean!2
I left the Globe Halloween Night around 1030pm and went to my second party destination the Fort area. Lines were long everywhere and it was full! Glad Aylin included me at the guest list at Haze so I was able to cut the line and warmed up with some friends there. Haha actually warmed up at the Globe party already with 3 bottles of beer! Hello Guiness I love you!
This was the only shot I got from Club Haze my fone got dead batt and had to borrow USB wire from Melanie which was taking too long to charge so killed my fone and partied!
This is how i looked that night and a cute guy I met in another bar gave me a cute “pickup” line. Lol! “Hey, you’re looking pretty scary tonight. I mean you look pretty even if you look scary. Umm if that makes any sense.”
I wasn’t dumb I wasn’t born yesterday so I know what he means. Thank you.
Around 12mn the Club was getting full. We were getting tipsy but to lazyvto move out. We stayed inside and partied and people watch. Then some group of those kind of girls woth those kind of men arrived. Tasteless in anyway just making out in front of everyone like they’re cool. So we went out about 2am and this is what we saw!
Chaos outside Club Haze, Imperial and Craft! So many people trying to get in! Inside was already full!
Lots of fun characters coming out. It was literally a circus out there that night!
It was a real circus that night in the area. So decided to head out coz I’m kinda tipsy.
It was fun much fun if my phone cooperated hahaha!
Actually Halloween parties are just starting to buzz in the Philippines even trick or treating because usually Filipinos go to cemetery and remember their dead and light tons of candles for all relatives to the nth degree departed souls.
Anyway, where and how did you spent your Halloween night?
Stay gorgeous everyone!

With the crazy traffic in Metro Manila, and the inconvenient delays of airline flights lately, most people opt to stay at home and just do a movie marathon, sleep in, rest and read.

It feels really great to be able to cross-out again something on my bucket list! Finally, I was able to fly and even swing twice on a flying trapeze at the Flying Trapeze Philippines!
Mind you Flying Trapeze Philippines, is the FIRST and ONLY full size Flying Trapeze rig in the Philippines and one of only a few in all of Asia. Measuring 32ft high by 12ft wide.
Here’s a video clip of me flying! My Flying Trapeze Philippines Experience!
The first try is always the scariest. But once you let go there’s no stopping you!
Was it difficult? No. It was just like swinging on an ordinary swing the difference was instead of sitting you are hanging 32 feet above the ground!
The first drop is the scariest! Just hang on, listen to instructions and enjoy the ride
Were you scared? Yes at first I was. The first try and the first drop is always the scariest. The fear of doing something because of pressumed danger is the hardest to overcome.But once you have gathered the courage to let go and just listen well to instructions, there’s nothing to fear at all. In fact conquering your fear and doing something for the first time is a great achievement.
The fear of doing something because of the pressumed danger is the hard to overcome. But once you get the courage there’s no stopping you!
Do you need strong muscles/ upper arms so you can swing or lift yourself? I think you need a strong grip and maybe stretching before you fly as it will stretch you from head to toe. If you think you are fit, no injury or other healthy issues (ask your doctor if you can do such activity, this one is somewhat extreme) you are good to go. Plus you will be asked to sign a waiver/consent form before flying, so better read it well before signing.
When you’re out there swining it is pure fun and freedom. Actually it reminded me of my childhood when I play on the swing and would do stunts like stand on the swing up or hang down on a monkey bar!
Is it safe? With an entire team of kind and encouraging Trapeze experts led by Will Shu guiding you all througout, there’s nothing to fear. The facility looks sturdy and safe and it looks like it can carry the biggest and heaviest person I’ve see at the scene when I was there yesterday for the San Marino Corned Tuna #WhatsNewWhatsNext event.
My awkward drop!
There’s a net to catch you when you fall, harness on both of your sides incase you fall because you didn’t grip well or your grip was bad. A cushion below the net for additinal safety precaution.
I don’t have fear of heights to begin with, I just have fear of falling and hitting the ground and hurting myself badly! Haha!
Will you do it again? Absolutely! I swung twice. For my second time up there I was able to hook my knees on the swing and let my hands go. It was super fun! I will do it again and maybe next time experience being caught by another swinger or even catch someone that would be awesome! Haha!
Flying Trapeze Philippines team lead by Will Hsu sample performance for the San Marino Corned Tuna event
How and where to go if I want to try flying?
If you want to try flying, just go straight to Flying Trapeze Philippines located at the open grounds at Bonifacio Global City near Mercato BGC Tent. The one I just tried is what they called Open Swing which you can avail of. Rates for open swing is Php300.00 for 1 swing and Php500.000 for 3 swings and is open for walk-ins.
But if you are serious about flying, they also give flying lessons rate starts at Php1,000 on weekdays to Php1,250 on weekends and holidays.
