Not going to lie, Ghost Month was blah for me this year. So now that it's finally over (yesterday!), we celebrated with 200g (!!!) of Iranian caviar (soooo creamy, I'm still dreaming about it now 😍😍😍) and copious amounts of Chateau Angelus 2004 and 2006, and a super gorgeous 1996 Cos D'Estournel... in nothing less than a Zalto. 🍷🍷🍷 Aaaaaaaaah. So freaking good. 😍😍😍❀️❀️❀️

Tonight, a new bar opens at the "hipster" Poblacion, Makati area-- Polilya is a brainchild of the folks behind Engkanto Brewery, husband-and-wife Ian and Sandra Paradies, and sister Nina. ✨ A kind of flagship for their Engkanto beers (they do have cocktails & wine, too, FYIπŸ˜‰), and the food is done by Luis de Terry (like the mussels cooked with beer, mustard oil & coconut broth, and served with rotiπŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹-- keep swiping!πŸ”™). They start pouring at 6:30PM onwards and is a really cool space. Check it out!πŸ‘Œ #polilya #poblacion #makati #engkantobeer #philippines

One of the greatest things about the Philippines being an archipelago is our abundance of seafood.. like these clams from Bicol, grilled, and topped with pickled cucumber, crispy shallots, scallion oil & cilantro-- new-- and my latest obsession on the Earth Kitchen menu. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ
β€’
What I love about Earth Kitchen though is that it isn't just a restaurant but a social enterprise that works with local farmers and communities-- through food and art (owner Melissa Yap-Yeung does art therapy classes)... most recently the children victims of war-torn Marawi in Mindanao (*ISIS-affiliated Maute Group recently destroyed the town and it's still ongoing πŸ’”). More about it and how you can help (just by buying their artworks at PHP1,000/ USD20) on my Instagram stories, running for the next few hours. πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†

Meanwhile in Manila... Sagana is chef Marc Aubry's latest reincarnation of Champetre (Je Suis Gourmand in another past life) in the exact same location. πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Obviously a new restaurant will always have new dishes but I'm happy to see their steak tartare (I love steak tartare so much!!!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹) retained on the menu, along with other classic French favorites. #sagana #saganabgc #marcaubry #steaktartare #bgc #manila #philippines

I just did Manila-Dubai-Brussels-Bruges-Brussels-Amsterdam-Berlin-Wolfsburg-Hamburg-Dubai-Manila in 14 days lugging my 30kg suitcase almost as big as me all by myself!πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
β€’
I had 2 gigs in Europe just four days apart so instead of flying back to Asia and then flying to Europe again, I decided to stay on & re-visit cities I hadn't been back to since university.
β€’
Loved that my long haul flights were with Emirates, and their open jaw option allowed me to accommodate my schedule flexibly. (*I flew into Brussels; flew out from Hamburg. Surprise: Berlin doesn't have direct flights w/ major airlines!)The service was p h e n o m e n a l. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ They took such great care of me, anticipating my needs 2 steps ahead.
β€’
And while this is a Boeing 777, Emirates, operator of the largest fleet of Airbus A380, celebrates their 100th A380 with special fares if you book from now until September 21- for all your travel plans later up to next year! Til then, happy weekend!πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž #emiratesairline #businessclass #cheryltiutravels #hellotomorrow

As soon as this dish was presented to me, I was like "What is this sorcery?!" Ruinart rose is one of my favorite champagnes 🍾🍾🍾, and Sven Elverfeld has transformed it into the creamiest sorbet in the world (it's so freaking good, aaaah!!!😍😍😍) served in.. the base of the Ruinart champagne bottle!😎😎😎 (Swipe left 3x to see!). It's become Aqua's signature dish since then and with excellent reason. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ *For more photos of our wonderful meal at Aqua, see my previous IG post.

A champagne kitchen tour by chef Sven Elverfeld was the prelude to a most sublime dinner at AQUA (3 Michelin stars; 70th best restaurant in the world). 🌟🌟🌟πŸ₯‚πŸ₯‚πŸ₯‚
β€’
The 9-course menu (plus snacks & sweets) is German fine-dining at a very tall order, highlighting local produce from the region, but also with some Asian influences from Sven's travels (bao buns x wild burgers, anyone?)... but not without being presented first with a personalized menu crediting each and every Aqua team member πŸ™πŸ™Œ and wines expertly paired by seasoned sommelier Marcel Runge. (Check out that Zalto decanter!!!🍷🍷🍷)
β€’
If you've been to one of my fave restaurants, Suhring in Bangkok.. well, the twins Mathias and Thomas used to work here with Sven (swipe til the last photo!)
β€’
My next post will be Aqua's signature dish that blew us all away.😍😍😍 In the meantime, keep swiping left for photos of our phenomenal dining experience.πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž

Just an hour's train ride from Berlin is the city of Wolfsburg. πŸ’ž Perhaps best known for being home to Volkswagen, and the Autostadt (Automobile City)-- a showcase of the VW brands Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, etc. etc. But to me (and fellow foodies!), it's most important for being the home of the 3-Michelin-starred AQUA helmed by Sven Elverfeld (No. 70 on the World's Best Restaurants list), located at the lovely Ritz Carlton Wolfsburg-- which is pure understated elegance.πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

Notice how my room looks out to the Volkswagen power plant-- which is also the world's largest car plant!
I loved my stay here-- service was top πŸ”πŸ”, plus loved the Asprey amenities.πŸ€—.

Stay tuned for photos from our Aqua dining experience. In the meantime keep swiping left πŸ”™ for more photos of this gorgeous property.

A resounding reminder for all of us from the Berlin Wall. πŸ’₯ Happy Friday!πŸ’« (πŸ“·: @kekatales) β€’

Tim Raue built his very own Berlin Wall in honor of World's 50 Best Restaurants (they are at No. 48 this year). He was so fascinated by Asia that he completely revamped his menu to serve just Asian cuisine. Swipe left for more photos of the dinner. It was so great to be with World's Best Female Chef 2017 Ana Ros (Slovenia), and my fellow tastemakers Zoe Bowker (Dubai) and Miguel Andrade (Portugal). *Tim Raue also holds 2 Michelin stars 🌟🌟 and is a Krug Ambassade. 🍾🍾🍾 #timraue #timraueberlin #worlds50best #tastemaker #50besttastemaker #michelin #krugambassade #berlinwall #berlin #germany

No-fail deliciousness in Berlin.. the doner kebab πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ #laleimbiss #donerkebab #berlin #germany #cheryltiutravels #cheryltiugermany #cheryltiuberlin

A closer look at the new Miele #DialogOven that changes the way we cook our food! I mean cooking that piece of fish encased in an ICE BOX (and in just 8 mins, too!) while the ice cube remains intact! How?! See my previous post. πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ (πŸ“·: @miele_com) #miele #revolutionaryexcellence #worlds50best
