La Bella Pizza Bistro Dumaguete

Italian Pizza at the Boulevard in, that was what we were hoping for when entering La Bella Pizza Bistro in Dumaguete. It appears to be a franchise of the Cebu’s Origin “La Bella Napoli”. The Bistro is just across Bethel Guest House at the southern part of the boulevard. The building was some years empty and after a few month renovations the new Pizza Bistro was announced already a…

On the Top in Kuala Lumpur

I am not sure why I love Kuala Lumpur, maybe because it can be everything, crazy, entertaining, fascinating, dirty and raunchy, modern and clean or traditional… Somehow there is everything….. and I love to be in the middle of it.

It must have been 20 years ago when I was there the first time. This time I went there with my missus, who has not that much travel experience. I…

Ignorant Alien Asholes – We put you in your place

Another great chapter of Dumaguete Journalism at its best and the level of intelligence you can expect here everywhere.

Real World scenario:
Two people have a small traffic accident but with rather costly damage and it is not clear whose fault it is. So police is called takes some pictures and other evidence, then clears the street and usually insurances taking over the costs (at least partially).

Once Again

In that many years I am…

Entrance of Gloria’s Fantasyland in Dapitan

Dumaguete – Mifune Japanese Restaurant – Revisit

Signboard – Mifune Japanese Restaurant
Last Sunday I went with my Family to Mifune, a Japanese Restaurant in Dumaguete for a revisit. I have been there a couple of times, but I think this was the second time, or so, we went together. They adjusted the interior a little bit and it is more “Japanese”, although the seats and benches are a kind of “cheap-ish” hammered…

Brigada Eskwela in Dumaguete

Brigada Eskwela is the name of a maintenance week in the public schools in the Philippines at the end of the summer holiday, where teacher, parents, kids and officials organize themselves to do whatever is needed to start the new school year. With my friends from the Thursday Club in Dumaguete we decided earlier this year to support the Elementary School in Candau Ay.
