M Café is the Ayala museum café that offers asian fusion cuisine. Ambiance is classy; I like how it looks- high ceiling, glass panels, hip interiors with artistic sensibility. Service is great...
A complimentary appetizers were served while waiting for our orders. Crispy anchovies, shrimp crackling, spicy shoestring potatoes and pickled veggies.
Roasted honey duck rolls.P295- is served with prawn crackers. Skinless duck meat together with carrots, radish, cucumbers, and lettuce wrapped in tortilla, taste really good especially when dipped in its hoisin-lime sauce; served 4 small pieces though- a bit pricey.
Lamb kare-kare - Lamb cooked in peanut sauce, with cashew nuts with string beans,eggplant and bagoong dipping (fermented shrimp). The lamb was cooked slowly to its tenderness and blends with the peanut sauce well.
Whilst I'm not a big fan of sweet food, the imperial kung pao wok fried chicken was a lil bit sweet to me but my friends liked it. It was big enough for 3-4 pax.
Grilled Roasted Tandoori Spiced Chicken. P350.00. For me a pizza is not a pizza without cheese, this pizza had no cheese :( I'm not really sure if they forgot about it but NO CHEESE? WTH!
Well, I forgot to take down notes on prices- estimate cost per meal is P500-P600.
PS: Photo's were taken by my camera phone...

Mt. Pinatubo brought a tragic past when it erupted June of 1991, it was recorded the 2nd largest volcanic eruption of the twentieth century. Now, it is becoming one of the "must see" destinations in our country (Philippines).
We traveled all the way to PDC (Pinatubo Development Corporation) Spa Town in Sta. Juliana Capaz Tarlac to start our Pinatubo adventure. The package costs P1,500 each, which include 4x4 sky way ride, a local tour guide, a Filipino/Korean lunch(when you get back to PDC)and a shower bath (No hot water).
The 4X4 ride was bumpy and dusty, but the scenery is simply exquisite. The trace of eruption is still visible but it seemingly slowly recovering from catastrophic past.
After an hour 4x4 ride and we finally arrived at its jump-off. We were surprised by the numbers of cars parked there… This is where the trekking begins….
It took us almost 30 minutes to hike the trail before we reach the top of the ridge. Note that we have lots of picture stop along the way.
The crater view on top of the ridge was magnificent.
The lake offers sulfuric blue green water; Is icy cold and soothing retreat for both locals and tourists especially these summer season. Of course, we swam in the crater - note that it can make your hair very dry and can stain your clothes since water contains sulfur.
Here’s the hardest part of the trek - hiking hungry during lunch time. We thought that packed lunch is included in the tour but they serve it after the trek. So note: MUST bring food and water, NO stores on top.
Going down… we decided to stop by Aetas village before heading back to town.
After having our lunch (almost dinner), we decided to try their “Pina-thai-tsu” - a unique combination of a traditional Thai massage with that of a Shiatsu massage and a few local massage techniques. For P500 the massage would last 1.5 hours not bad isn’t it? They also offer mud bath for P500 and volcanic ash spa treatment for P500.
Another note: No mobile signal while trekking ....
Mt. Pinatubo is no doubt a natural wonder, it brought a violent past, but its beauty now is seriously dazzling yet it could possibly lead to earth-shattering future… Life is unpredictable yet so beautiful :)
