Tropezz Restaurant Bar
Saturday, September 15, 2007
st Monday, my friend MM, Mei and I went to Greenbelt for a quick lunch, or should I say dinner 'coz it's already 4PM. While, brainstorming (hahaha..) where to eat, one of our friend, Tintin, text that we should try Tropezz Restaurant Bar 'coz according to her the place ambience is really good and the food are great. So, we went there, even though we don't have an inkling on what to eat.

When we arrived at Tropezz, we asked the waitress what’s their best selling food and she said we should try Spag tropezz. So Mei decided to order Spag Tropezz and I ordered Linguine de adobo, while MM, who arrived 2hours later, ordered Tropezz belly mucho. Well, the food is great, the servings are very large and what’s best is the prices are affordable. Also if you're hanging out with friends they have a live band every night around 9PM 'till the wee hour in the morning.

Well, this is a must try Restaurant Bar. So, what are you waiting for?

Come and discover the world under the sea at the Manila Ocean Park. The first world-class marine themed park to adopt a fusion concept, bringing together an Oceanarium, open water marine habitat, a mall, hotel, restaurant and multi-purpose function facilities in one complex.

This is the Philippines' first state-of-the-art oceanarium and the first largest aquarium to be built in the country. You will see here a wide variety of species, such as sharks, fishes and invertebrates indigenous to the country and the Southeast Asia. It has a 25-meter long underwater tunnel that are surrounded by awesome creature. And this will be a great experience for Filipinos for this is comparable to the world's best.

Well, people don't have to go to far away places just to learn and experience swimming and diving with fishes for you can do this at the Manila Ocean Park Open Water Marine Habitat. But unfortunately you will have to hold on a little longer for the Open water Marine Habitat will be opening on July 2008, while the 100 room Boutique Hotel will be opening on April 2008.

Well, this will be located behind the Quirino Grandstand, Luneta Park, Manila, Philippines 1000. For more information please visit Manila Ocean Park website. So see you at the opening!

18th Philippine Travelmart
Friday, September 07, 2007

The 18th Philippine Travel Mart, also known as “Sale ng Bayan” just opened this after at the Megatrade Halls, 5th flr. Bldg B of SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City. This was organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) with global visions events and marketing network and various stakeholders in the travel industry.

This is a great way to save on your trips around the country 'cos the travel show promises bagsak presyo on airfares and travel deals. Well, there are more or less 160 companies who joined the said event, so you can compare prices, resort facilities and location in one setting. Just imagine travel deals up to 50% off!

SO, now is your chance to enjoy SAUD BEACH in Ilocos, who's listed as the top 10 Asia's Best Beach, the white sand beaches of Boracay, the wild rapids of Cagayan de Oro, the Rice Terraces or wander at the street of Vigan and see those old Spanish houses.

Well, the opening ceremony started around 1PM with a foot parade, then the Ceremonial banging of the gong, Invocation with DOT Regional Directors, National Anthem, Welcome address by Mayor Abalos, talks about Tourism, then the cultural show and so fort and so on. Sorry, but I went home early.

Anyways, what are you waiting for? Hurry and get your dream vacation. Or just walk around and know more about the Philippines. See you at the fair!

Here are some of the pictures I've taken at the Travel Mart:
