Beef Bulalo, aka Beef Shank Soup, is a dish that is achieved by cooking beef shanks and marrow bones until the collagen and fat has melted into the clear broth. Bulalo is native to the Southern Luzon region of the Philippines. Every time the weather gets cold, some of us would think of getting a hot bowl of Bulalo. Eating Bulalo is also famous in Tagaytay because it is perfect for the cold weather. But if you're just around Welcome Rotonda in Quezon City, there's this humble dining place where you can eat and try Bulalo.
It was December of 2013 when me and my friends attended a surf and music festival in Zambales, an event called Surf For Life, for the benefit of people from Guiuan, Samar. The event was held in Crystal Beach Resort in San Narciso, Zambales. I've never been to other resorts in San Narciso, in fact I haven't explore Zambales that much. But, I feel like when you're in Crystal Beach its like hitting two birds in one stone. You get to experience camping or sleeping on a nipa hut but the resorts facilities are merely available for your convenience.
We all knew how Singapore is such an interesting tourist spot in Asia. With all the pretty structure and architecture to a wide variety of food choices and theme parks, one could never get tired exploring Singapore. Still, Singapore made an effort in providing us wide spectrum of offerings to have innovative and unique experiences.

Zumba is a dance fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez during the 1990s. It involves dance and aerobic elements. The choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo. Every once in a while, I join Zumba classes. I love Zumba! That being said, I made a list of gym and dance studio who offers Zumba classes in Quezon City. What I like about Zumba is you don't need to memorize the steps, you just have to follow the instructor. It doesn't matter if you're great at dancing or not. What's important is you just enjoy the exercise routine.
To gym and studio owners: Please email or message me on facebook if you'd like me to update the info below.

The next day, we spent the morning eating breakfast and we also did some photo opportunity in White beach. As I've said from the previous post, we're done with most of our activites from yesterday. This day was a more relaxing day for us.
A small island in the Philippines located in Aklan Province, is one of the famous beaches in the Philippines called Boracay. The long stretch of powdery white sand, the turquoise water, plus the many activities available, makes it widely known to many tourists.
