Many of my readers will call me “huli sa balita,” but I just have to share this experience. For over four years now, Oye and Malou have been inviting us to try their favorite restaurant—Antonio’s in Tagaytay. It was only a few weeks ago that our schedules met.

There are days when the overload of broadband distractions becomes just too much to handle. A good antidote for slowing down could be turning off your cell phone and taking a [...]
