Sto Nino Novena Mass ~ Viva! Viva! Viva Pit Senyor!

It is the Sinulog weekend in Cebu, the fiesta sa Balaan na Bata, the feast of the Holy Child. Some of you may associate Sinulog with just the Grand Parade, street dancing and pocket parties that sprung up in the city streets but to many Cebuanos and devotees of the Senyor Santo Nino, this feast is to thank the Sto Nino, to praise Him for all the blessings, to pray to Him. The Basilica Minore del Sto Nino ~ Sinulog Novena Mass The 9 days novena masses in the Basilica del Sto Nino is always … [Read the full article...]

Liemposilog chopseuy Joels Town

Laguna Food Trip: Joel’s Town in San Pablo City

What foodie place you shouldn’t miss when in San Pablo? I got to say its Joel’s Town restaurant. :) Ang lagi kong binalik-balikan sa kanila is their Liemposilog with chopsuey. It’s a hole-in-wall type of establishment, not a posh place, it’s more like a big size carenderia. It does not have fancy decors, no aircon but they definitely deliver on what counts most - delightful food offerings. Think Pinoy food favorites like pancit, sisig, lumpia, liempo, silog meals, they have it and it won’t … [Read the full article...]
