Republ1c Wakepark Restaurant

Extreme sports like wake boarding is such an amusing scene especially if your an avid fan of water sports even if you're really not that sporty kind of person. What if you have the benefit of this view right from your table while enjoying a whole meaty pizza & a bottle of San Mig beer.

Republ1c Wakepark Restaurant located in Nuvali Sta. Rosa Laguna is one of the top spot for extreme wakeboarding sports in the Philippines. It's been quite some time since I first experience the excitement here so there's no doubt of coming back here again for some sporty weekend with friends. 

Repul1c Wakepark Restaurant offers decent & luscious meals after a sweaty wet and wild afternoon of pure sports activity. Previously I attempted the beginners track and after smashing myself into the water for several times, I decided to give up. This time around, I got myself fully confident to try the advance level and guess what, it was a success for a newbie like me. Afterwards, I felt all the hunger in the world so we decided to take dinner. We had Laing Pizza (Php 330.00) served with a cold bottle of San Mig beer. We tried Seafood Pasta (Php 195.00) flavoured with sauteed shrimp & asparagus in olive oil. Asian Chicken Cashew (Php 150.00) was also a bowl perfectly done if youre craving for rice. 

Oh well, sometimes we just really have to enjoy life through good food. So if you'll be passing by Laguna area or maybe on your way to Tagaytay, make sure to drop by at Nuvali and have a bite only at Republ1c WakePark Restaurant.

So if it happened that you'll be in Makati area, you have to try Inside Sports Bar Makati located at Tune Hotel Makati just opposite the hotel entrance. This resto bar has two ambiences, cozy place for breakfast in the morning & lively drink spot at night for sports lovers out there. During my recent vacation in Manila, I stayed for a night in Tune Hotel & had my breakfast here before heading to Nuvali Wake Park. 

Insider Sports Bar- Makati offers all day Pinoy breakfast menu where you can order all-time favorite Tapsilog & Cornsilog matched with a strong black coffee for a good kickstart of the day. What else could be better than spending your morning for a full meal done deliciously shared with a good old friend sharing stories like it would never end. We've tried Tapsilog (Php 210.00) & Cornsilog (Php 225.00) with brewed coffee & hot tea. Their beef tapa is well cooked & flavoured with that beefy taste just right & well balanced. 

There's nothing too fancy in this place but you'll definitely love how the place for a quick morning meal after a saturday night of party in Makati. They also have wide varities of liquors available & memorabilias for foreign visitors while enjoying a FIFA World Cup series or if you're lucky enough, then you might catch Pacquaio fight in here.

Cupcakes by Sonja

Cupcakes are always a delight to see. The say "It if looks good then it must taste good too". 
Let's see how good this can be at Cupcakes by Sonja located at SM Megamall in Philippines.
The place is asethetically beautiful and such a cozy & fun place for barkadas. Going to places like this, it kinda makes you think of wanting to be a child again. Because really once you're here, you're basically like a kid in a candy store. It truly has a feel of what a sweet shop should be, with it's candy inspire design. 

I ordered 3 different cupcakes in different flavours once of which is the Red Velvet Vixen, a traditional Southern Red Velvet cupcake made with Belgian Cocoa and topped with luscious cream cheese frosting. The 2nd one you gotta try will be the Elvis, an Oreo cookie crust filled with rich peanut butter cream and Reese's chocolate bits, slathered with chocolate & caramel topped with caramelised banana slices and whipped cream. Lastly will be the Dessert Comes First, Speculoos peanut butter marble cupcake with a creamy surprise centre, topped with rich speculoos frosting and spiced biscuit bits.

Their menu offers classic, special & premium cupcakes. They also have brownies, cookies, cake cups & bars that you will surely enjoy. I think all the cupcake flavours they have is to die for. Enough said.

With the increasing awareness of people to proper health & keeping the body fit, most of us would prefer going out for dinner spot that offers relish food items that are healthy & nutritious. Having burgers, pastas or sandwiches doesn't mean unhealthy at all after trying out the newest wholesome restaurant named Dine @ Log.

Inkfinity - Onin Tattoo

They always say "Life is too short not to do things that you really wanted." It has always been my obsession to have a tattoo, as something that would seem to be impossible. But out of the blue I came up so determined to have a tattoo of my drew. One thing that influenced me was my childhood friend who got his passion for tattoo but also a proud nurse graduate like me.

During my recent trip in Philippines, I planned of my tattoo session with him at his Inkfinity Onin Tattoo Shop located just beside our house. I just had sensory overload for too much facts I learned in the world of tattooing. I grew up in a Christian family so tattoo was never a topic considered at home. To some folks, it might be a form of rebellion or even source of discrimination. But having my first ink, it was a long process of finally committing to have one and so far I never regret of having it at all.

Getting inked for the first time, you need to be sure that it would be symbolical enough. I decided to have the number 13 to signify my birthdate January 13, born on Friday the 13th. When I turned 13 years old, i was even scared that I thought my life will end that day but lucky enough I'm still alive. LOL! 

The Inkfinity Onin Tatto  is solely managed by Nino which happened to be the current partner of my older sister. He started his tattoo career 5 years ago and currently he is proud to have too much recognitions from local competitions and various art / tattoo events in Philippines. Being a nurse, he's also aware if the hygienic practices needed. With all his latest equipments, complete inks & a talented hands, you will never go wrong having your first tattoo with Inkfinity Tattoo Shop.

Is it painful? To be honest, NO! Especially if you have already anticipated the pain but in case you have low tolerance to pain then it will be another story. The pain scale will be 5/10 for me with my experience. Pricing for tattoo will vary depending on the tattoo size or the number of hours needed to finish the design. For my tattoo, oh well it's a birthday gift, so I'm a lucky one.

Hope this post helped you decide more for those interested of having their first tattoo or even those planning to have their 2nd or 3rd tattoo. =)
