Wok Inn Malate

It's been sometime  when I last visited this place, at around 2006 to 2007. A close friend which I have not seen in years, brought me to this place. A feeling of nostalgia surrounds me.

When I got there at 10 am, the place is still closed so I was able to snap a few quick shots around.

Still sleeping at 10am?

So decided to go to the National museum and be back here for lunch. Got back at 1:30 pm and I'm starving and a bit tired. No menu, an attendant will assist you to choose the order at the counter or I would say the kitchen , behind a glass panel.

So I ordered stuffed squid and the classic sipa and a small bowl of rice.
Dumplings filled with ground pork and minced veggies

Squid stuffed with spring onion in a sweet sauce

Disappointed with the stuffed squid, not the kind I was expecting it to be. You can tell by the size in the picture, not those big and plump squid that I  used to have in other restaurants. Entire meal cost me Php 350.00.

Taste : 7/10
Price : 6/10

Located in Malate Manila, beside Malate church

Brad and Pit's ribshack

Interested to try that edible mug made out of cookie, the original plan was to try it... where else... at Cookie Mug! located along Lilac St. in Marikina.When we got there, the place is jam-packed. So might as well look for an alternative and we saw Brad and Pit's ribshack

The place is impressive, displays are memorabilia and items from the 60's to the 80's

So we ordered the spicy ribs and ribs Alfredo, the meat literally fell off the bone, tender and  tasty.

What I don't like is the quantity of serving for its price. A bit expensive for me. But overall, it is worth giving another try.

Taste 7.5/10
Price 6/10

Located at Lilac street, near Lilac bridge

Bun of brothers...

If you want to try great tasting burger at a reasonable price, worth checking out Bun of brothers at SSS village Marikina Rainbow st cor. Azure st.

last October 3, they posted on Facebook that they have a free chicken burrito for every burger, sounds like a good deal.

So we ordered the Ultimate burger for myself and the Bacon mushroom for my cousin.

Solo ride, Rizal- Laguna- Quezon loop

Sunday morning and I want to challenge myself , got on my Yamaha Fz and left the house at 6 am. I might as well try this long distance route. Starting from Antipolo and passing the towns of Rizal

A view of the wind electric generator at Pililia Rizal

First stopover in Pililia Rizal

A view of Laguna lake

                      Checking out the wind electric generators

Going to Sinoloan

                                         You Guessed it right! Paete

Well I've decided to push further and go to Majayjay, going to visit some historical places there

                                                    At Lumban
                         At Lumban Hydro electric power plant

                         Resting a bit before pushing to Majayjay

Reaching Pagsanjan is easy, no traffic and I  noticed that  most of the houses are old

Upon reaching Majayjay I was relieved, landed at around  1 pm. And It's a small quiet town .

My first destination in Majayjay is an old unfinished bridge made by the Spaniards called Puente de Capriccio, Rizal made reference to it in El Filibusterismo in 1851, Finding it was easy, I asked a trike driver, said it is called "Tulay ng Pige". Locals are confused why I'm looking for it, said that I  will be passing by a dump site to reach it. 

  The dumpsite near the bridge

   Met this guy who guided me in my search

Tulay ng Pige

 As I was trekking down the cliff, worried about my bikes security

Next stop from Tulay na Pige is the old church of St. Gregory the Parish Church, Built in 1575

From Majayjay, going to Sinoloan and then to Real Quezon. The road going to Real Quezon  is difficult, sharp curves and rough roads. 


A local market that sells fresh sea foods in Real

Fresh harvest from the sea

Lots of beach resorts

Reached Real Quezon at 3pm, I was a bit worried that I might get caught in the dark while passing to Marcos highway traversing the Sierra Madre. Just took couple of pictures and headed to the final leg of my travel.

Loading up with gas

                               Riders prepare at Marcos highway

Marcos Highway, the final leg of the journey


The Long and winding road of Marcos Highway
                                         Heavy rain nearing Cogeo
Traveled  350 km

Got home at around 7pm, got baked under the sun, soaked wet, For a rider, it's not always the destination that counts. It's the time spent on the road... Hope you can join me in my next journey
