8065 BAGNET Restaurant

8065 BAGNET Restaurant

Luzon, National Capital Region
The classic and infamous Ilocano dish is now the name of a meat-eaters’ piece of heaven. 8065 BAGNET offers one of the best tasting bagnet in Metro Manila. Enjoy the classic recipe with bagoong rice or a bottle of beer or maybe even both! The crispy, crunchy, tasty and meaty (just thinking about it has made me decide to drop by later for dinner! Hahaha!) original recipe is as good as it is, but the owners of 8065 Bagnet took it a notch higher and gave it a twist and offers variations. Try the bagnet curry with its thick sauce for all the curry lovers out there! Bagnet sisig, the all time pulutan favorite done in overdrive and very very delish! “Di lang pangpulutan, pang – ulam din!”  Bagnet in spicy gata, you’ll make soup out of its creamy coconut milk sauce or its kare-kare counter

We first learned about Zoocobia from a feature in "Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho" wherein they showed these Gravity Cars. Since Aileen (my wife) really enjoyed Luge in Singapore, she was very eager to check these Luge -like gravity cars. We've been to Clarkfield, Pampanga several times but never heard of this place so I was a little challenged to find this. Day in, day out. Even though it was a the back of my mind, I never really had the urgency to go there. What the heck. But since Valentine's day is fast approaching and I haven't really thought of any surprises for Aileen, a plan was made. A plan that will surely benefit Jacob - why not go Clarkfield, Pampanga and find Zoocobia. Fast forward, it was February 14. While the rest of the world are dating in fancy restaurants or watching at...

Wat Arun Temple Thailand March 23-24, 2009

Asia
I traveled Bangkok City alone by myself in a very hotty sunny weather with my 13kilos back pack and a cold bottled water for the last day trip without any meal.  Since it's going to be my last day in Bangkok city, I decided to walk around and visited some familiar temples around the area.  Due to communication barrier even If I asked their police officer nor the restaurant of the manager couldn't give me a correct and exact information about where to take a bus or public transport and how to get into the temples.  So,  I ended up walking and reading the city map of Bangkok and found out the place and reached there sweating a lot.  Since I was wearing short and read on the internet it will not be permitted to enter the temple, so while I was on the bus (came from Phuket Island), I put my pa
