Trip to the City of Smiles, Bacolod

Bacolod is only a 45min-flight away from Cebu. For Cebuanos, we have no excuse of not ever setting foot there. Bacolod has the best places that give the most delicious sweet treats. Caleya, Kuppa, Bong-Bongs, Pendy's.. these are only to name a few. Delicacies are plenty too -- napoleones, piyaya, half moon, cheesecake, chocolate cake. They are the best! Other food to try are grilled chicken and kansi.

Fun! Age-guessing app

Microsoft launched a new website called “How Old Do I Look?” I learned of it first from a twitter post of Mashable. It’s a web-based app that is meant to showcase Microsoft’s Face Recognition API. You have a choice to try the app using pre-loaded sample pictures. For more fun results, however, you also have the option of trying your own photos. Although the site says they do not keep any of your personal photos uploaded to the app, I would still be careful in doing so. For the fun of it, go ahead and try it.

Butterbean Dessert Cafe

Butterbean is in its soft opening and is there for the lovers of sweet. The cafe is strategically located near the best restaurants in town. You may choose to dine at Quest's buffet, Parklane's buffet, Simply J's, Kuya J's, or Surfin' Ribs and then drive or walk to Butterbean for your dessert. My personal preference is Surfin' Ribs. That way, I don't have to drive or change parking space to get my dessert. Surfin' Ribs and Butterbean are in the same block. In fact, they're in the same building.

Surfin' Ribs

Surfin' Ribs is a frequented place of mine because of it's proximity from where I work. When I crave for seafood yet don't have the patience to wait long, I would dine in this place.

The food has just the right taste for my palate. The prices will not hurt your wallets too. My favorite includes: Baby Back Ribs and Buttered Shrimps. Shrimps are best eaten with your bare hands. You eat them faster too. :)

Grab Taxi

I have been riding cabs that have drivers with their own smartphone mounted on their glass. I saw the app flyer, also available in the cab, and immediately downloaded it. I've been using GrabTaxi ever since. I've tried EasyTaxi too but have not successfully booked any cab through it. The number of cabs linked to the app is probably few.
