This by far is the most wonderful AirBnb accommodation we have ever seen. Makes me want to go home every year.

Indeed, a home away from home.

Thank you very much for welcoming us & looking forward to our next visit!

Every positive feedback from new friends just makes us work harder to make our condos better!

The whole experience of renting from the Prudente’s was a breeze. They really took time to explain how all the appliances and furnitures work. Their manual is impeccably done to ensure we had everything we needed even how to assemble the sofa bed! The condo was well equipped with all of the appliances we needed for cooking. Cleaning products were made available and clean drinking water was provided. My husband and I personally didn’t want to go out (except when meeting friends) because it was really comfortable like home. They even had groceries provided to us when we arrived. I would definitely come back to this place when I come home to the Philippines again ūüėČ

We look forward to your visit!

“My recent stay at Mary Ann and Roberto’s condo was exactly what was needed for me to recover after a long stretch of work. The condo was as described, having all the comforts of home, and in a fantastic location with all necessities nearby. “

“The hosts met me on time and provided me with information of the area, fresh fruit to help recover from my travels, and even assisting me in obtaining a SIM for my phone. And for any questions I had during my stay, they were always responsive. Upon my return, it is very likely I would stay there again and am happy to recommend this condo and hosts for consideration by fellow travelers.”

Enjoy the Ice Cream and Desserts Fair @ Eastwood Mall

Eastwood City never fails to surprise me.  Eastwood City vacation living is always an adventure.  This week, in the most unlikely place, I discovered very wise advise.

Life is short, eat dessert first!

Life is short, eat dessert first!

I’ve always instinctively known this, so I eat my dessert first. ¬†Also during the meal, and also after. ¬†But that is another story.

This week, Eastwood City Mall featured the Ice Cream and Desserts Fair, a small but goodie-filled collection of dessert kiosks. ¬†I’d normally go around tasting every freebie dessert, but I sort of felt guilty ( after consuming gazillions of calories at Gillian Gail Dessert Buffet last Sunday, and capping ¬†my Thursday evening seafood buffet dinner at Tong Yang Megamall with sixteen scoops of ice cream), so we had to settle for gelato ( two scoops for each of us).\

Let’ let the pictures tell you more.




Gillian Gail Dessert Buffet

Five minutes away from Eastwood, in Katipunan Ave, in front of Ateneo de Manila University, you’d find Gillian Gail Desset Buffer. At P299 per person, inclusive of coffee, tea, and unlimited ice cream, it is a terrific bargain. ¬†Add P20 for bottomless iced tea, or add P100 for dessert inspited rice toppings.

But let me rave about this in as few words as possible ( and with each picture worth a thousand words ).

Cookies, pretzels, cupcake and assorted bites

Round 1 with  cookies, pretzels, cupcake and tasty bites.

Dessert cups with nuts, chocolates and fruit preserves


Round 2 consisted of dessert cups with nuts, chocolates, and fruit preserves,

Fruits - Watermelon, apple, papaya and kiwi!


Round 3 is a healthy mix of assorted fruits – papaya, watermelon, apple and kiwi


I was with the family, so we did share some stuff: crispy palitaw, banana bread, creme brulee and turon.  The crispy palitaw was superb, but the serving was too large for a buffet place,

Nachos with cheese and Jalapeno


The nachos were light and crispy, and I thoroughly enjoyed the cheese and Jalapeno

Chocolate cake


There were several cake choices.  I was full already, but who could resist a slice of moist chocolate cake?


I always end a buffet with at least six scoops of ice cream. ¬†Here’s four of my six ( Selecta vanila and Selecta Super Chocolate) scoops. ¬†There were lots of topping options, but I didn’t use any, because I remembered I’m on a diet!



And my pinipig crunch.


And finally, my Choco-Hazelnut Cornetto. 

A bargain at P299!
