There's this restaurant that opened recently at SM North The Block, Sandwicheese by Banapple, which is out in the Skygarden, just beside its sister restaurant, Banapple. The location of Sandwicheese is a rather difficult location to attract customers, in the sense that the previous restaurants that have been there never really stayed that long. The last one before Sandwicheese was Zabo Chicken, which our family really liked, but I guess the Filipino palates are not really fans of the Mediterranean cuisine (too bad!).

Adventures in Palawan Day 1: The Importance of Being Flexible



I had it all planned out: fly out to Puerto Princesa in the morning, check in at the hotel, grab a quick lunch, proceed to tour museums and other nearby areas until dinner time, before heading back to the hotel for an early bedtime because the next couple of days were bound to be jam-packed with activities.

Of course, not everything always goes as planned, starting with our flight being delayed for about three hours, till I was living in fear and cold-sweat that it would be canceled completely. (Thankfully, it wasn't.)

When we (FINALLY!) landed in Puerto Princesa, we were picked up by the van from where we stayed, Casitas de Az Pension. (Shoutout to them—everyone was so nice and friendly and accommodating. I peppered them with a thousand questions before booking with them.)
