A day and a week ago, I was invited by Zest Airways for a familiarization tour to Kota Kinabalu. We had a tour around the city their malls, cultural villages, beaches and other attractions. One of the food places we went to dine in was the Salut Seafood , one of their most famous floating restaurant in Kota Kinabalu serving the freshest seafood you can find in town.
Here’s a collage of the food we had there. It was a lot!
Yeah their food looks a lot like what we had here! And yes they taste really good. I can’t even stand-up after we finished everything.
Here’s how the facade of the restaurant at night it is so picturesque. They even had a cultural show to entertain their guest.
I have visited a similar floating restaurant in Davao too.
Actually, Kota Kinabalu is just like the Philippine!

Last week, I was in a field trip to Kota Kinabalu courtesy of Zest Air who just launched their first flight to that destination. One of the places we visited in KK aside from their famous beaches was a Cultural Heritage Village in Mari Mari where I experienced cooking chicken in a bamboo. This is how they used to cook in the old days of Sabah!
Having visited this cultural village was such an amazing experience as we were able to see how the Ethnic Tribes of Sabah used to live and how in the old days people live a very simple life and don’t worry about when to schedule their Windows cleanup with their computers as they are busy hunting for food and keeping their shelter a safe place to live.

The second stop we visited for our Little Korea in Metro Manila trip for Pop Talk was Secret Garden. Who would knew such Eat-All-You-Can Korean Buffet restaurant existed at a very affordable rate of Php399.00 to Php499.00 ONLY! Unlimited beef or pork and unlimited Korean side dish Kimchi all you can! OMG! Writing about it here just make my mouth water. I super love all the yummy home-cooked authentic Korean dishes we had in there.
I also love the lettuce salad they have in there with fruit dressing, super delicious. I love it. I also love the soup with tofu yummerz!
Secret Garden can be found at Don Antonio Heights in Quezon City. It is best to go there for dinner and after work as daytime like today can be really hot as their setting is open air garden-type resto. You can leave the mens briefcases
at work when you drop by as they also serve Soju!

I was invited to be a reviewer at a TV show here in the Philippines of Korean Restaurants and hang-out places in Metro Manila. One of the places we visited was a Korean fast-food Restaurant called Kulpy Chicken. They specialized in double-fried honey glazed chicken that is very popular in other Korean restaurants and food places.
Their honey-glazed chicken is really good sweet and crunchy and tasty. But one of their stand-out product is Cool Pop, an all-in-one chicken and drinks “meal” served in a cup.
You can choose what drinks to have either soda or iced tea and it is sold for Php75.00 a cup only. Kulpy Chicken is located at Don Antonio Heights in Quezon City.

Just the other day, I was invited to an event at Eskimo Bob. I honestly didn’t know what to expect what kind of food they serve except for the nice wall frame of their inviting Ice Cream flavors which is perfect in this super hot summer day!
Anyway, we had a lot of Italian food going there.
Appetizer was French Fries! Then there goes Carbonara, Baked Macaroni, some kinda Cordonbleu (did I spell that right), and Pizza. Oh yes that was a lot! and then they gave a super sized Halo Halo for each one of us! OMG! Two scoops of ice cream two slices of Leche Flan, a spoonful of Ube and all the ingredients in! Sarap!
I will definitely come back and have an ice cream feast with my daughter there! While wearing horseback riding clothes for women teehee!

Lucky Me sent me a bilao full of their latest product, the Lucky Me Special Instant Pancit Palabok and we tried it at home yesterday, a perfect Sunday breakfast and merienda because it is so easy to prepare and yes it taste good. If you add ingredients like egg, shrimp and more chicharn grains, this will actually pass for a special occasion menu like birthdays, baptismal, reunions, graduation, etc. etc!
To prepare just cook the noodles for 5 minutes, drain and add the ingredients!
Actually I like Lucky Me instant noodles products, like instant spaghetti, instant macaroni and cheese, and pancit canton pancit and sotanghon. They are actually good.

Did you know that next to water, coffee is the most consumed beverage/drink worldwide?
Did you also know that next to petroleum, coffee is the 2nd largest traded commodity globally?
That the Philippines is the 2nd largest market of coffee in the world according to Nescafe?
So yeah, if you are a coffee lover or you call yourself a coffee addict you are not alone. You might have contributed to that statistic that I’ve learned from my immersion trip as a coffee farmer in Davao just recently!
