I thought this photo is such a magnificent shot and thankfully, my cousin Jeshua Sales agreed to have this featured here in this blog. This was taken at Mt. Cabuyao/Mt. Sto. Tomas, Tuba, Benguet (Philippines) during one of his many trips. Our hats off to Koi Grey for taking this captivating photo 🙂

Travel Photo of the Week 18

During the last quarter of 2015, my fellow author of this blog Alice, our friend Gloria, my husband Daryl and myself spent time traveling to Tagaytay City 🙂

There are many lovely places to visit and see in Tagaytay including, of course, a view of Taal lake. Taal lake is the Philippines’ 3rd largest lake after Laguna de Bay and Lake Lanao. Volcano island is also found within Taal lake.

In this photo, my hubby, is trying to get a bigger view of the lake and all the beauty it has to offer. We were viewing it from the grounds of the historic Taal Vista hotel.

Watch out for a coming post about things to do in Tagaytay 🙂

Truly Redefining Buffet: Manila Pavilion’s Palate

SEASONS, Manila Pavilion Hotel and Casino’s lifestyle restaurant re-launches a vast wide array of buffet spread welcoming the holiday season. Celebrating its first holiday dinner for Php 999 every Friday and Satruday, Italian Executive Chef Giovanni Sias reintroduces a new take on savoring eat-all-you-can.

“In Italy, everything is prepared and served fresh from the kitchen. Buffets are usually found intimidating and costly with the food laid out waiting to be indulged. With ours, you get a vast array of choices which is plreasant to your eye, made fresh by batches and refilled only when the demand asks for it.” Sias explains.

Truth to Sias roots, Seasons’ is taking buffet into a different level where cooking is elevated to performance art using only the freshest and finest ingredients including micro-greens.

For the month of November, Season’s is taking us to a gastronomic tour of International buffet celebrating every nationality. A great value for money.

“We’ve got staples and a mix of what holidays the other nationalities have. We’re having Vegetable Samosa, Vegetable burgers, Chana Masala, Chicken Tikka; Kasmiri, Pullao and Curry to celebrate India’s Diwali (festival of lights), and some artisan gourmet cheeses, bacon, poutine and maple syrum for Canada’s remebrance day. We’re also having Turkey for the Thanksgiving weekend, and fresh hand-pulled noodles into perfection. We don’t forget the fun in devouring great food.” Sias added.

Enjoy the food festival buffet only at Season’s Lifestyle Restaurant located at the lobby floor of Manila Pavilion Hotel and Casino, United Nations ave. Ermita, Manila from 6PM to 10:30PM on Friday’s and Saturday’s. Children under the age of 5 years old are free of charge.
