Marikina City: What to see in the Shoe Capital of the Philippines #SapatosFestival2015

October 30, 2015 0
I had the privilege of participating in the Grand Marikina Tour last October 24, which was organized in time for the Sapatos Festival. Along with notable media people and Marikina bloggers, we were taken around the city by the wonderful Public Information Office team (special mention to Charlie and Ela), and the very bubbly Mr. Brian Tenorio


After our short briefing, we proceeded to our first Shoe Factory in Marikina: Bristol Shoes. I've been to the city several times since 2014, as I've been managing a small shoe venture as well. Not that I'm looking to transfer suppliers, but I never really had the chance to explore its neighboring businesses. So it was a nice opportunity to get acquainted with other shoemakers who were also into manufacturing and distribution.

#CaptivatingCapiz – Where To Stay and Dine in Capiz

October 15, 2015 0
Capiz, the Center of Seafood Trip Tourism in the Country, was not an immediate destination in my list of places to see in the Philippines. I’ve been allergic to crustaceans for as long as I could remember, so I delayed the idea of traveling to the province. But when an opportunity to visit the seafood capital was offered to me, I just couldn’t say no. And it was one of the best decisions yet, as exploring parts of Capiz showed me so many interesting places and eats, several of which I would’ve missed if I overlooked the chance to explore the booming region.
