Wooden Spoon by Chef Sandy Daza: Katipunan Ave. Quezon City: Manila, Philippines: Review

Wooden Spoon by Chef Sandy Daza
With all the fast food restaurants and other foreign influenced cafes conquering the different intersections of our highways, villages and streets in the country, you'll rarely see a good mainly Filipino cuisine based restaurant or eatery that. is making a name for itself.

One of which I think that is rarely to find is this restaurant that we just have recently visited. It has a fine selection of Filipino inspired dishes with some twists on it making it very nice and unique. It covers a wide selection of mouth-watering Filipino food menu at reasonable prices. It is located in front of one of the most prestigious universities here in the Philippines which is "Ateneo de Manila University" and in one of the most popular highway strips in Quezon City which is in "Katipunan Avenue" (by the way, there is another branch in Rockwell but I haven't tried it yet). This may not be new for the past and current students of both great universities of "Ateneo" and the "University of the Philippines" or UP since it is quite near their location but for some this may already be a discovery of a new food treat.

While others experiment their own version of smiles, a lot has became popular already like the half smile for the guys who they say makes them look "cooler" and "hotter". And the no teeth smile for the girls who they say makes them look more cute and adorable.

One of the positive sayings that we have about smiles is that "Smiles are a glimpse of how wonderful that person can be as well in the inside". So, who wouldn't want to make their smiles better, ei?

List Of Over-The-Counter Payment Facilities in Manila, Philippines: Money Transfer & Payment Method Option

I believe that as of the moment, Over-The-Counter method is the 2nd most preferred way of payment by Filipinos - that is before cash on delivery. I think this is due to that we have a physical point of transaction to base with not like via online purchases using a credit card where fraud is more likely to happen and everything is virtual. When we want to check, verify or follow-up our payment(s) done, we can go back there, find the person who received it and/or point the responsibility to that establishment/business when something goes with it either good or bad.

List Of Banks In Manila, Philippines: Savings, Accounts and Investments

When I was younger (I meant below 20's here), I really do not find bank services that significant. I told myself that when I'll save money, I can just store them in our house or in any of my secret places. But when it got big, that is where the time I appreciated banks. That storing sleeping money can be of something than nothing (If you have no time for it) with a lot of security than the 4 corners of your house, plus their other services like investments, loans, etc..

5 Things To Like About Seoul, Korea: Annyeong-Haseyo: I Heart Korea

Korean Flag
Things to love about Korea
As part of my bucket list, one of the countries I wanted to visit is Korea. I have been to Incheon Airport once but that was only a stop over for a United States business trip. That time, funny as it seems, I was already thinking of some ways to even just have a few steps outside the airport to feel what it feels like standing on any part of Korean land. But I never had a chance (of course, aside from that it is forbidden due to that it is only a connecting flight, I did not want to risk for our team to have any inconveniences since it was for an important business trip).

So I am writing this article to remind myself in the future that I once have wanted and appreciated some items on the given list below that can be found in Korea.
