Canton Road for Valerie.

Ever since Canton Road in Shangri-la at the Fort opened, I have not heard too many good reviews about it so I haven't made an effort to dine there or to bring the Dizon clan over. 

When Val told me that she was going to celebrate her birthday dinner there and was asking me for help with the menu, I told her that I couldn't assist because I have never tried the restaurant. 

When we got there, the place is quite beautiful. We were situated in a private room where we can make all sorts of green jokes.

We had about 9-10 dishes and I can honestly say that it isn't bad at all. Since it was pre-ordered, we were served quite quickly but I wish it came out hotter. 

Found the pork too sweet. Too much sugar that when it got cold, the pork stuck to the plate like it was glued. 

This was delicious, I just hope there's a better way to make it look less scary. 

Overall, I must say that I wasn't disappointed. But as always, the company is always the best part. 
Thank you Valerie for having me. Happy Birthday! Love you.

JBD in Lifestyle Asia, April 2019.

We absolutely love how Jul B. Dizon Jewellery was used for this spread in Lifestyle Asia. Thank you for the trust!

Thank you Roko Arceo. 

2019 in Seoul.

I am trying to post more on my beloved blog. I've been lazy and truthfully, I think that it is a dying art but I can't seem to just quit it. Be a bit more patient with me and I will try my best to keep you posted on what I've been up to and where I have been going (not that you care but just pretend that you do). 

Anyway, the girls and I spent NY in Seoul, Korea. Yes it was freezing, just as we anticipated. We were armed with heavy coats and boots and all sorts of tools to keep us warm but it still wasn't enough. Our days would start with a temperature of -8 and it would end with -13. 

The sun was out but it didn't matter, the cold was stronger but do you know what's even stronger? Our urge to shop and eat. Myeongdong is where we spent a lot of our time. 

Our most favorite thing to do in Korea is to go to beauty shops. We would try out almost everything that they have because we are make up and skin product addicts. By day 2, we could really see the improvement on our skin. 

We went to the N Seoul Tower. The view was amazing. Really worth the trip especially if you use Klook discount promos. 

Since it was Christmas/New Year, the decor was a bonus eye candy. 

Our favortite snack bar is Godiva cafe. Here, we would enjoy hot chocolate milk and ice cream. 

It was too cold and I don't think I will be back during winter but I am absolutely sure that I will be back as it is one of my favorite places to visit.

The Siam, Bangkok.

One of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen is The Siam in Bangkok. I love everything about it, specially their indoor garden. 

Thank goodness Ms. Lulu Tan Gan brought us there for happy hour because it's been forever and a half since I was last in Bangkok and I really don't know much of the new places that needs to be visited here. I just know about the amazing food, but when I travel, sights are more important to me than food, that's just the kind of person I am. 

Thank you so much Lulu for the wonderful afternoon.
