Cloud 9 Antipolo and the Cloud 9 Restaurant is definitely a romantic spot for couples and a popular place for sight-seers. Previously called Café Nueve, it offers delectable and sumptuous dishes all made better with panoramic views as you dine in. The Cloud 9 Restaurant mostly serve Filipino dishes, made by its homegrown chef who has long perfected the art of cooking home-cooked meals such as pinakbet, kare-kare, crispy pata, and other native cuisines. This is also the reason why Cloud 9 is mostly visited by tourists and returning Filipinos who would like to have a peaceful and quiet visit in the Philippines.
Every now and then it is good to escape to Antipolo just to witness the golden sun setting over the big city, Metro Manila. Cloud 9 is one of the few restaurants with front row seats to this spectacular view. And you can not deny how romantic it can all be. Definitely a romantic spot for couples and a popular place for sight-seers. But how does the food and the restaurant rate? Let’s find out…

Sonya’s Garden Tagaytay is definitely on our list of romantic Bed and Breakfasts… Many thanks go to the creator and owner, Sonya Garcia, for bringing us this slice of paradise. Whether it is your first or forty-first time at the gardens, it never fails to captivate. For those that want beautiful views, the fresh and inviting smell of fragrant flowers, the peace and tranquility of being in nature, and maybe even a touch of romance, then you can’t go past Sonya’s Secret.

After a quick visit to Jardin de Marimar, our next stop was to one of Antipolo’s top tourist destinations, the famous Hinulugang Taktak Waterfalls. Located in Brgy. Dela Paz Antipolo City lies the 12-meter-high waterfall of Hinulugang Taktak which gain its fame through the song “Tayo Na Sa Antipolo”. When we finally arrived, we are welcome by the friendly smiles of the staff. Friendly? Hmm, maybe just eager to take money from a foreigner for an overpriced entrance fee. And, to make it worse, they weren’t shy to announce it…
Manila Baywalk may be getting overlooked but it should never be forgotten… See why… Take a walk along Manila Baywalk. Once an area for pickpockets and thieves until it was transformed. What is it like today? Busy during the day but this area comes to life at night. There are plenty of open air cafes serving local cuisine while, all at the same time allowing people the chance to fully appreciate the beauty of the a Manila Bay Sunset.

One of the few ancient remains of the Philippines in Manila. To be honest, the fort is a genuinely interesting attraction for locals and tourists alike that will not only interest you with its architecture but also give you an insight into the country’s identity and culture. I find it relaxing just to walk around the area, getting a sense of what life must have been like during Spanish colonial rule. It’s a hot walk in summer though, so take an umbrella if possible.
Bolo Beach Pangasinan was both hot but also at the same time a definite NOT…
In some ways, Bolo was a disappointment but, at the same time, we loved the place. When we were there in July there were quite a few jelly fish floating in the water and washing up on the beach. Be warned that there are times of the year when these things might happen and it only takes one jelly fish sting to ruin a holiday.. On previous visits we didn’t have this problem so I hope it is a one time thing.
Cabongaoan Beach, Burgos Review. Is it worth the journey? Tips, comments, photos, videos and advice.
MOA Amusement Park, SM By The Bay – First of all, a day is never enough for this place. Add to this, the endless choices of dining, recreation, and entertainment outside the humongous mall. The best place to watch the sunset and cap the day of shopping. Ever since I can remember, SM has been the go-to mall for everyone. And this has not changed. SM Mall of Asia in Pasay being the 3rd biggest of all the SM Supermalls. But the humongous size of this mall isn’t the only thing that makes this mall unique.
