Yes Please

This year I’ll be kicking off my “When in Manila” series. 2017 was a year procrastination, but not for 2018. My New Year’s resolution is to post in this blog every two weeks or once a month at the least. So, let’s get this ball rolling!

To start off my “When in Manila,” series I’ll be giving a review on Yes Please. Situated at the Palace Manila in Bonifacio Global City between hot clubs, Revel at the Palace and Palace Pool Club, Yes Please is a club for people who are so done with clubbing. Yes, it’s for aging millennials that have outgrown their hard partying days. If you want to sit back, be casual, and zip on a cocktail with some moderately volumed 90’s music, this place is just for you.

After opening last year, this anti-club zen has been one of my go-to places in BGC. It gives off a New York feel with its East Village gentrified dive bar look.

Their menu is a weekend must-have as co-owner and Chef, Erwan Heusaff, whips up some tropical inspired signature cocktails and asian dishes.

Girl Scout Colada

A piƱa colda with a twist! It still has that familiar tropical taste, but topped with a torched marshmallow foam to bring back those memories when you were in summer camp having s’mores and roasting marshmallows by the fire.

Flying V

A tiki drink that gets its tropical vibe from a mix of mango and melon juice mixed with Mezcal which sets off the fruitiness of the drink with its cinnamon-like spice.

Asian Curry Noodles

Loaded with bokchoy, minced beef curry, kimchi, fried onions, mushroom and leeks topped on stir-fried noodles. It will be a frequent weekend craving once you try this dish.

Yes Please! is located at 11th Avenue Corner 38th Street, Uptown Bonifacio, Taguig City

Open Monday – Saturday 6 p.m to 3 a.m

When in Singapore

Hello, it’s been a while. Sometimes work and laziness just gets the best of us, but I’m back! So what triggered my sudden urge to get this blog running again? The recent news of the Foo Fighters playing in Singapore on Saturday, which I have absolutely zero moolah to spend on. I have high hopes that Dave Grohl will stumble upon this and send me free tickets. Wishful thinking, I know. It got me to retrospect on my not so recent trip to Singapore a few months back for the Coldplay concert. It was my second time in the Lion City, and with its smorgasbord of gastronomic delights, swanky hotels, rooftop bars and pools, I wouldn’t mind coming back again.

Cherry Blossom Festival

Spring has sprung and people are flocking to different parts of the world to catch a glimpse of blooming cherry blossoms or “sakura.” Every year, Washington D.C holds its annual Cherry Blossom Festival when they reach full bloom in early Spring and I had to see what all the fuss was about. Why are people going crazy over these flowers? In an attempt to prove that there was nothing special about it, to my dismay, I was proven wrong. Cherry Blossoms are one of the most beautiful wonders you’ll see in this planet.


Coldplay Fever

The most emotionally charged concert I’ve ever been to. First, you’re dancing, then you’re crying, the next thing you know you’re dancing with tears in your eyes. Well, I guess that’s what’s in store for every Coldplay concert. The band has a way of drowning their melodramatic lyrics with upbeat melodies and vibrant visuals. Truly making every Coldplay concert an, “Adventure of a Lifetime.”
