Things to Do in Dubai

Things to Do in Dubai

Things to do in Dubai: to have a good view of the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, and to know what is the biggest mall in the world. My First Breakfast in Dubai I woke up with the hotel’s phone ringing at 8 am, a little bit confused and disoriented, and just remembered I was in Dubai.  And, I answered the phone hearing the voice of Erol inviting me for breakfast.  Maybe I was dreaming, then realized that it is the right time to discuss the things to do in Dubai. And it was real, for, after less than an hour, we were in McDonald's having our first, decent breakfast.  McDo is just about nearby my hotel.   I got bread, scrambled egg, breakfast sausage and a big cup of coffee and a banana.  Nice one, clearing my head and filling my tummy.  Erol went ahead for his work in Business bay. The Hotel I went back to my hotel, looking from the window...

Jo’s Chicken Inato by the Sea in Sibulan, Negros Oriental

Jo’s Chicken Inato by the Sea in Sibulan, Negros Oriental

Jo’s by the Sea is a dining place in the sea side of Sibulan in Negros Oriental.  It offers their customer good food and scenic view of the sea. If Negros Occidental has their famous Chicken Inasal, here in Negros Oriental, they have their Chicken Inato.  This is the top seller of Jo’s Chicken Inato restaurant, obviously, for it is named after that.  Comparing the two ways of how the chicken was cooked, the Inato and the Inasal, I can say that their tastes are almost the same.  They are both grilled on its perfection, giving a juicy chicken.  The only difference I observed is the chili oil sauce.  There is no bottle of chilli oil present on the tables here on Jo’s Chicken Inato.  And even if you asked for one, they really do not have any chilli oil. But, nevertheless, the chicken inato is perfect.  The condiments are just additional to get a different taste but the chicken inato itself is...

An overnight in Tuding, Itogon, Benguet

A Visit in Itogon, Benguet I was in Tuding, Itogon, Benguet.  Indeed, the view was spectacular.  Waking up earlier before the first break of the light peek on the horizon, was a great choice.  An overnight stay had made me reiterate to myself that it needed to be a quick and relaxing break.  A break that not to be spend inside the four walls.  I hope I had, at least, an option to see one – a sunset or a sunrise, if both settings were not possible. We arrived late in the afternoon, about past 3pm.  It made me think that we could still go back to Baguio city and had a stroll.  But when the host of the house had told me that there was a terrace with a scenic view and where sunrise can be viewed, oh, I dropped all my plans and settle to stay home for the night. The house is owned by a subsidiary of an electric company. ...
