Shopping in Divisoria, Manila

Divisoria is the best shopping destination in Philippines during the holiday season. It’s a market district in the heart of the City of Manila, known for affordable goods and wholesale and bargain shopping. 

Last Dec 23, I visited Divisoria to buy gifts for my loved ones. I know for a fact this place is super jam-packed during the holiday season. All the people are going here to find low priced goods. "Tawad here! Tawad there!" Everyone really wants to get the cheaper price of everything. It’s also stressful going here because traffic is almost everywhere.

Krazy Garlic in Promenade, Greenhills

Some of us really love the taste of a garlic. Count me in because I’m a fan of a garlic. Everytime I eat fried rice, I make sure it should have garlic toppings. Even on my favorite “special lugaw” (congee), I put a lot of crispy fried garlic on top of it.

The reason why I’m talking about garlic is because I want to share my experience in the newest branch of Krazy Garlic. This a dining destination that glorifies the beautiful taste of garlic. This restaurant serves the best of the garlic –infused dishes from around the world.

"Topload" is more fun in Sagada, Philippines

Want to have unforgettable and exciting adventures in Mountain Province? If YES! Try doing the "topload" on the cool jeepney of Sagada and Bontoc

Top loading is one of the ways in riding a jeep. Instead of getting inside of the vehicle, you will go up to the roof the jeep. No comfortable chair! No protection ceiling! Everything is OPEN! Most of the upper portion of the jeep in Sagada and Bontoc are designed for topload. There are small metal (like) fences attached on the roof to prevent passengers from sliding.

I’m sure most of you already heard about the “hanging coffins” in Sagada, Mountain Province. It's an old funeral custom of the people of Sagada wherein coffins with bodies of qualified individuals were placed on elevated cliffs. 

Sagada, Philippines is really famous for its "hanging coffins." This traditional way of burying people is part of the Igorot indigenous culture and burial tradition.  Not everyone is qualified to be buried this way.
