It was Acienda Designer Outlet's first anniversary last October 26, 2019 and #AciendaFest2019 was one of their treat for us! They are located at Silang, Cavite. Just a few minutes from Tagaytay.

Tagaytay may have lots of restaurants and cafes to try these days but not all of them are budget friendly, right? So I was so happy to discover Pig Republic located at Fora Mall.

Forastero Cafe opened last year but they now moved to a better and bigger space so they can serve and accommodate us better. They are still located at Silang Bayan (near P.S. Bank) which is just a few minutes from Tagaytay.

Game-changing insights, mind-boggling questions, and heart-wrenching realities in the restaurant industry were all tackled last August 19 at the Future of Food 2019. Attended by more than 1000 restaurant owners, industry leaders, restaurant operators, and senior marketing professionals, the Future of Food is dubbed as the biggest restaurant summit for restaurant owners in Metro Manila yet. Zomato Philippines, the leading food app in the country, organized the Future of Food with the country’s most prestigious companies, Arla Foods and Globe myBusiness, in partnership with, McCormick Philippines, Century Pacific Food Inc. - Food Service, and Avida Land.

Future of Food 2019 was held at the Grand Ballroom of the Philippines’ most luxurious Resort, Hotel & Casino - City of Dreams. The summit tackled topics on the Modern Consumer, Sustainability, Innovative Food Solutions, The Future of Marketing, and Goals in the Philippine Restaurant Industry. The event was a huge success due to its all-star keynote speakers and panelists. Some of the nation's most reputable key opinion leaders who shared their insights at the event were Chris Evans (Business Head, Zomato Philippines), Amor Maclang (Co-Founder and Chief Communications Officer, GeiserMaclang Marketing Communications Inc.), Leigh Reyes (President & Chief Creative Officer, MullenLowe Philippines), Pamela Pacete-Garcia (Executive Strategic Planning Director, Wunderman Thompson Philippines), Enzo Pinga (Chief Farmer, Earthbeat Farms), Melody Melo-Rijk (Project Manager of The Sustainable Diner Project World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines, WWF - Philippines), Jens Christian Krog Nielsen (Senior General Manager, Arla Foods Philippines), Johan Movido (Innovations Manager - Flavor Solutions, McCormick Philippines Inc.), Tenten Casasola (Innovations Manager - Culinary Team Manager, McCormick Philippines Inc.), Jason Cruz (Executive Strategy Director), Karen May Garcia (Head for Business - Technical Solutions Partner of Broadband and WIFI, Globe myBusiness), Eric Dee (President and Chief Operating Officer, Foodee Global Concepts), Sam Christopher Lim (Chief Marketing Officer, Francorp Philippines), and Donald Lim (Chief Executive Officer, Dentsu Aegis Network Philippines). Because of these outstanding speakers, the night ended with an immediate demand for the next conference!

I found a restaurant that offers UNLIMITED BULALO here in Tagaytay and its affordable!

My family and I got to try Premier The Samgyupsal on their soft opening. I heard a few good feedbacks on their other branches so I was really excited to try them. A lot of samgyup places are opening here in Tagaytay and I'm not complaining. More choices! Hehe :)

It is my first time to try Cafe Amazon. I went to Primark Tagaytay to get my UMID ID at SSS Tagaytay (They just transferred there). I was supposed to head to Ayala Mall Serin to find a cafe with decent wifi. We had trouble with the wifi at home and I need to get this done. Only a few cafes and restaurants here in Tagaytay have wifi. It's sad. I know. Haha!

I was so happy when I learned that Macao Imperial Tea just opened near my place. This is the nearest branch for me which is at Acienda Designer Outlet in Silang. Macao Imperial Tea has been the talk of the town ever since they opened.

Freelance jobs have become in demand here in the Philippines. I found this new platform called RAKUBOSS.PH where clients can connect straight to the freelancers. They have a user-friendly interface that I like. Clients can seek specified freelance jobs like writers, lawyers, realtors to artists.
