Louis Vuitton always throws some of the coolest parties and last night was no exception as they opened their newest store at The Shoppes at Solaire Resort. ❀️ Congratulations to both the LV and Solaire teams! Don't mind my face, I was telling my friend Anthony Wahl (who took this pic & also happened to be an LV model last night 😎) about the hashtag. I love how they incorporated Philippine elements like the jeepney and our Manila cityscape on the backdrop created by Third Culture Music and Mvltiverse. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ™ #LouisVuitton #LVPhilippines #Solaire #Manila #Philippines

It's been short but really sweet, Singapore! Thank you Speciality & Fine Food Asia (@specialityasia) for having me at your 1st gourmet trade fair in the region! Happy to have been reunited with chef Ray Adriansyah of Locavore in Bali, Indonesia who is an advocate of championing local (he also cooked with us at @cross.cultures in Manila last AprilπŸ™Œ) who is the headliner of the UK-based event! I may be back in the Philippines now but the fair goes on up to TODAY at the Suntec Convention Center and it's FREE for anyone in the F&B and Travel industries, so do check it out!

It's been a while since I flew Philippine Airlines overseas so I'm "naninibago" with everything. (*Everything seems new to me.) βœˆοΈπŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ For instance, in-flight entertainment comes in the form of an IPad that they lend to you. (I was watching "Fresh Of The Boat" and a little trivia: Constance Wu will be playing Rachel on the upcoming "Crazy Rich Asians!"πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ) As for the food, I opted for Fernando Aracama's Cod Estillo Afritada. Don't think they are lacking, I just don't eat a lot of bread and ice cream (they have yummy Carmen's Best !🍦🍦🍦). But I did wipe out their supply of champagne (Charles Heidsick🍾🍾🍾), nuts and dark chocolate coins.πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ Check out my IG stories to see where I've traveled to. ☝️☝☝#philippineairlines #flyPAL #businessclass #travel #airbus #ipad #charlesheidsick #freshoftheboat #crazyrichasians #fernandoaracama #inflight #airplane #manila #philippines #cheryltiutravels

Happy Monday, Manila!β˜€οΈ With a growing interest in health and fitness, I'm often asked these days, "Where can we eat healthy in Manila??" And my pick, apart from Japanese (see 3 posts ago), is Green Pastures. πŸ’ž They have an array of salads, grain bowls, cauli-fried rice & farm-to-table tapas... and as I love poke, I always order the Poke-Bowl (this is small at PHP515 or USD10.3). It's tuna poke, 5-minute duck eggs, avocado, kale, edamame and nori sitting on quinoa with a sesame ginger lime dressing.πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ In the 1.5 months I've been in Manila, I've eaten here 3x! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ PS Chef Robby Goco has opened his newest (Greek) baby Souv by Cyma (@souvbycyma) next door. I've not yet been but let me know how it is! πŸ€— #greenpastures #greenpasturesBGC #BGC #poke #pokebowl #salad #wheretoeatinmanila #healthiswealth #health #healthyfood #manila #philippines #happymonday

Inside Pink Hotdog's BGC is a speakeasy called Hotel Bar. Just last week, owner Ana de Ocampo opened up the lower bar space adjacent for a similar nightcap experience but with a less clandestine feel. (2nd photo) 🍷🍸🍻 *PS Meanwhile in Los Angeles, her sister Margie and husband Walter Manzke of Republique also just opened a Filipino rice bowl concept Sari-Sari Store at Grand Central Market the other day (July 14), and it's already drawing lots of excitement!πŸ™ŒπŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸšπŸ³ #pinkshotdogs #pinksmanila #pinkshotdogsmanila #hotelbar #hotelbarmanila #nightcap #cocktailbar #shangrilafort #bgc #manila #philippines #speakeasy #republique #sarisaristore #losangeles #republiquela

Re-visited one of my favorite restaurants in Manila-- Mecha Uma; ordered 90% of the ala carte menu, and *everything* was amazing. 😭😭😭❀️❀️❀️ (*Even if Bruce Ricketts wasn't there; I appreciate restaurants that can uphold the same quality even w/o the head chef. Happy birthday Bruce!!!πŸŽ‚πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅) And was so happy to have it with this gorgeous Kosta Browne pinot noir that my friend brought back from California. (I'm told you can only order the wine in the USA if you're on their mailing list, and it takes years to be able to join!) It went super well with the food.πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ Such a fab dinner. *I'm obsessed with uni so in photo are: uni soba and miso pan (sea urchin & eggplant on potato bread). PS Good news, Kosta Browne is carried by PWX in Manila- thanks for the tip, Alicia Sy! #mechauma #brucericketts #themomentgroup #asias50best #delicious #manila #philippines #kostabrowne #pinotnoir #wine

So loads of people, myself included, have been trying to eat well (clean & healthy), and Japanese is a no-brainer for that! πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅πŸ£ In my opinion, Tsukiji makes the best chirashi in the whole Philippines, flying in the freshest seafood (look how plump & juicy) from Japan. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ In case you care, I skip the soy sauce and lather on a ton of wasabi on each piece (they are grated fresh here so it's mild kind of kick)... Skip the rice, and inhale the entire bowl of miso soup. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ Their ohmi Wagyu sashimi is also amazing. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ #tsukijimakati #tsukiji #chirashi #japnese #makati #philippines #yummyyummyinmytummy

Armenia in 45 seconds!πŸ€— I went on a daytrip to Armenia's Debed Canyon from Georgia (a total of 8 hours), known for their UNESCO Heritage monasteries. Armenia is believed to be the 1st country to adopt Christianity, so yes, apart from Cher the singer, Andre Agassi and the Kardashians, this is why they are known for their beautiful medieval churchesπŸ’ž More on my day trip and itinerary in my blog <cheryltiu.com>.

My Saturday night very well spent at LIT Manila (@litmanila) in honor of guest Japanese bartender Fumitake Ohba (of Code Name Mixology in Tokyo)!πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅πŸ™ŒπŸΈ He is in town, serving his original cocktails up to Tuesday! They are SO good-- so smooth, so delicate and well-balanced.πŸ’ž β€’
This is the Takeo Sour-- my fave. 😍😍😍 [Mizu Shochu, lemon juice, chamomile honey syrup, egg white, ginger bitters]
If you haven't yet, I highly recommend reserving your seats at (+63917) 510 0014-- we don't get cocktails like these everyday! (πŸ“·: JJ Acuna @thewanderlister)

Say hello to some serious culinary talent here: Nicole Coson is a London-based artist who cooks up some fiery Sichuan for "TV dinners" at home.🍽πŸ”₯πŸ“Ί********************************************

And everything was delicious!!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Had a great date night with my Dad, and discovered that not being a fan of Riesling, dry Turkish rose (thank you Maksut Askar!!πŸ·πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·) went very well with this type of Chinese. πŸ‘Œ Congratulations Nicole, Team Toyo, and to the lovely Sy family!!
