Marcia Adams | Tagaytay Food Trip

My daughter's school year has ended and it's officially the start of her summer vacation! Last weekend, we drove for two hours to Tagaytay to visit Marcia Adams' Restaurant.

It was my sister's idea to visit this Tuscan-inspired restaurant. She made a reservation and booked a table for five a few days before our intended visit. Thanks to the ever-reliable Waze, we were able to get to the venue on time.

Marriott Hotel Manila Premier Rooms & Suites | West Wing Review

It's such a delight to see a child's eyes light up because of excitement. I saw it in my child when she opened her gifts. It was special because the toys she received were a part of her Christmas wish list. Another thing that made her so giddy with excitement was our two nights stay at the newly built Marriott Hotel Manila Premier Room located at the West Wing during the holiday break.

Ramen Shokudo Banawe QC | Restaurant Review

And just like that... January's over!

I think this entry is weather appropriate since it's been drizzling for the past several days ;p We all need a bowl of hot ramen to keep us warm. The following photos were taken at the newly opened Ramen Shokudo along Banawe in Quezon City.

Ramen Shokudo Tantanmen (Spicy) Php 380

DH has been looking forward to the opening of Ramen Shokudo ever since he spied its signage a few weeks back. The setup of the restaurant is like that of a small, typical ramen house in Japan. There were several chairs in front of the counter where you can see your ramen and everything else that you have ordered being prepared.

Japan Visa Requirements (Updated 2017) | Philippine Passport Holders

In a few months, my family and I are going to spend summer in Japan... yey!

With a lot of ongoing promo fares, more and more Filipinos can now afford to visit the land of the rising sun. Plus, Japan is only 4 hours away from Manila so it is very convenient to mark this country as your next travel destination.

If you are a Filipino passport holder, you might want to check out the step-by-step procedure below on how to acquire a Japan Visa...

Japan Visa for Philippine passport holder

On my first application, I received a Single Entry Japan Visa with a validity period of 3 months. I can only stay in Japan for a maximum of 15 days. When I reapplied late last year, my passport was granted a Multiple Entry Japan visa with a validity of 5 years. That means I don't have to reapply each time I want to visit Japan within the next 5 years. Most importantly, I can stay up to 30 days with each visit.
