A preview of the new dishes of La Piadina Italian restaurant and an evening chat with Chef Giorgio Matera

An evening with Chef Giorgio Matera of La Piadina restaurant

I was born upside down and then I grew up loving the Italian food, especially pizza and pasta. But I thought that I’m an expert already because I haven’t eaten yet almost all the delicious Italian dishes that is available here in Manila. I know some good restaurants but I always order the same pasta and the same pizza, there are no other Italian dishes to try because I’m not familiar with the taste and also its appearance, so I consider myself as a newbie when it comes to Italian dishes, I’m so embarrassed that as a foodie, I already forgotten the real taste of an Italian flavor.

I heard this contest before when Facebook friends tagged me in a post by Air Asia, its an interesting travel photography competition, but I know it’s a tough challenge to beat the PROs in travel photography. Then I learned that there will be a chance to some bloggers to go with the travel event and document the competition. I thought that there will be a photo contest for the press event, but bloggers were selected in a raffle and the lucky ones will join with the photography coaches and contestant and travel to 4 countries to capture the entire action and also for the contestant to capture their best entries across a range of categories that include landscape, food, portrait, architecture and travel.

WeatherPhilippines app–an accurate monitoring app of localize weather in the Philippines


Whenever I travel around the country or in any local city, I make sure that I always monitor the weather forecast first, because it will help me to prepare and bring the things I need, also it will prompt me to avoid to travel if the weather is not good on a certain day. But if ever that I need to leave right now and I saw that it will be rainy in Pampanga, all I need to do is gear up with my rain boots, jacket, and an umbrella to make sure that I will reach my destination all dried and protected against the rain.

My 2 years project: I need to produce more muscles in my body before I reach 40 years old [Ensure Stay Strong]


That’s my goal.. produce more muscles before I reach 40 years old, and I have two more years left before I hit that age. I’m so worried about it because this is my 2nd time to hear the same lecture about people who gets weaker and weaker as they old, and the reason is that there’s a nutrition gap and the weak people suffers because they lack muscles. As we go old, our body mass and muscle starts to go thin, that’s why older people are “tuyot” or dried up because of old age, Others looks fine, fat and looks healthy, but they don’t have the proper strength and power to do more activities or stay longer when walking, running or climb the stairs.
