Seafood Island Cubao

Turn your ordinary dinner into a festive style dining with friends at Seafood Island in Araneta Center, Cubao.

As a hungry buddies, my friends and I hunted some restaurants that can fill our stomach with delicious and something unique in serving. We've decided to dine-in here at Seafood Island and try one of their boodle sets, the group agreed to get the "Kanyaman"  a mouthwatering  set of Tahong, bangus, Bagoong Rice, kangkong, Hipon, Talong, Okra and Lechong Kawali.

I've been here before, nothing much to say about the place aside from it's comfortable, accessible and unique. You don't have to spend more to go to a certain place that serves authentic seafood all you have to do is to go to a place that can satisfy your food trip.





 


As usual if the foods are great, what else do you expect?

Christmas in Zamboanga City

"SINONG NAGSASABI NA MAGULO SA ZAMBOANGA CITY?" Well, the lights can tell you how safe you are when you are in the city. I am a proud ZamboangeƱo, I grew up there studied and had my first job way back year 2003.


Taken by By Querilyn Aba Dec. 2011

Zamboanga City, is a city that can offer what other city can, and may give you more than what you want. City night life is just the same as Manila has, Restobars with live bands are everywhere. During daytime it's "business as usual", you can go to Barter Trade Center at Canelar,  visit some malls and drop by at the Pasalubong Center  near the Fort Pilar as well and refresh yourselves at the Paseo del mar during sun setting.

Taken by By Querilyn Aba Dec. 2011
Every December, this building (City Hall) is transforming into an enchanted kingdom of lights, where colorful Christmas light decors are shining and sparkling attracting visitors to come closers and discover its beauty face to face. Promising its people the brighter city ahead.

Zamboanga City is a city for all, a simple place with natural richness that soon to show you more. 

I spent my Christmas in my home town 3 years ago, and my one week vacation is not enough to rediscover the beauty of Zamboanga City.
Taken by Lance, December 2008

How to get there?
