I'm addicted to Instagram, and like most 'Instafans', taking photos of my meal has become a ritual after saying grace. Trying out new restaurants has become twice as exciting, with my phone and camera always at hand.
Smack in the middle of Greenhills Shopping Center, the newly opened Wafu is one place you'll have a field day taking photos. The first thing that will catch your fancy are the Ann Pamintuan lotus chairs, grouped in three table settings for diners who like a bit of privacy.
I had an easy time deciding what to order, I skipped the main menu and chose from the Bento menu. A carnivore, I had the From The Land Bento which had Teriyaki chicken and Wagyu Skirt steak. A must try, my friend said is the Wafu Kit-Kat for dessert. It came with a sprig of Jasmine, deserving of an Instagram shot. One bite and I became an instant fan, it was glorious.

The first thing you'll notice as you step in are the Ann Pamintuan lotus chairs.

Lovely stone plates.

Bento box choices - From The Land or From The Sea.

From The Land Bento - Teriyaki chicken and Wagyu Skirt beef

From The Sea Bento - Miso Salmon and Shrimp & Veggie Tempura

Thought this was garlic, it's lotus chip!

Piece de resistance, the Wafu Kit-Kat!

The Wafu Kit-Kat was (for lack of a better word) orgasmic!


  1. is that lotus chips? or garlic chips as you mentioned?

    1. You are correct Rose, it's lotus not garlic. Thank you for the correction :))

Vintage Valera

A couple of years ago, Roselyn Tiangco brought me her mother's Ramon Valera bridal trousseau and asked if we can cut the train and use it for her wedding gown. It was a Philippine terno in ivory satin, with bugle beads cascading down the front like waterfalls and a 5 meter train trimmed with Guipure lace and tons of pearls. I was aghast with the thought - no, I wouldn't dare desecrate a Valera. Roselyn and I agreed not to touch the vintage gown, we collaborated instead on simple Dior inspired gown for her wedding.
Early this year, Roselyn's mom Mrs. Linda Tiangco brought the Valera gown again, this time it would be for her wedding anniversary. The 50 year old gown gown still fits her perfectly but the bodice was already discolored and some parts of the train were moth eaten. Mrs. Tiangco told me to take my time to study the gown and see what I can do with it. For a month or so, I was just looking at the gown on the dress form, hoping Mrs. Tiangco would change her mind and…

The House Of Dr. Luis Santos

Our tour of Malolos continues, from the Cojuangco ancestral house, our gracious host Melecio Cojuangco brought us to the house of Dr. Luis Santos. Mel arranged the visit with one of the heirs of Dr. Santos, George Imperial. From the outside, one would already be in awe of the sheer size of the house. The house was built in 1933, according to the marker by the gate. Upon entering, you will marvel at the grand staircase, the expansive receiving room and the foyer filled with hard bound medical books and mementos of Dr. Santos' career as a well loved doctor in this town. The second floor was something else, as our group slowly ascended the magnificent staircase, my heart literally skipped a beat at the sight of the ceiling mural and Art Deco details. We found out later that the mural was painted by the great Fernando Amorsolo himself. There was a private chapel in honour of Our Lady of Lourdes and a be…

The Cojuangco Ancestral House

Our next journey takes us to a historic town in Bulacan, thirty minutes north of Manila. My road trip buddies, my college friends who all share with me the same fascination for heritage houses were privileged by an invitation from Melecio Cojuangco to visit their ancestral house in Malolos. Mel, his cousin in law Marissa Lopa, Rima Datuin and Evelyn Bautista and I discovered each other's funny bonebecause of our love for the ice cream served in a huge bowl at Peninsula Manila's lobby. One evening, to justify our appetite, we pretended it was my birthday and we had the string quartet play happy birthday for me, from then on, we became good friends. Mel's grandfather, Jose Cojuangco was born at the Malolos house, very near the Barasoain Church. Jose's mother traded rice from Nueva Ecija, sacks transported by boat via the river at the back of the kamalig to Binondo, Manila. Like most turn of the century houses, the Cojuangco house uses piedra china stones for the ground …
