L' Incontro Ristorante Italiano: Compliments to the Chef!

Wazzup Pilipinas!

My wife and I were given some complimentary meals at this Italian restaurant called L' Incontro a few days ago.  It is located along Nicanor Garcia street (formerly Reposo) in Makati city - not too far but quite inaccessible from our place. It's ideal you go there by taxi, but if you like walking for a few minutes, its better you just commute and drop off somewhere at the Mapua Institute of Technology Makati campus, or at the Yupangco building where Yamaha is. 

But we assumed it won't be much of a meal since its just a free meal given to a few people as a token of appreciation for helping them out with a certain project.

It was also a little inconvenient for us because we are required to book two days in advance before the restaurant would accommodate us. I guess we were just lucky that we were going to have a meeting nearby and the meeting request came in two days before. So, we immediately called up the restaurant.

Cozumel, Mexico Cruise : Of Ruins and Agaves

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The cruise ship you see here is our ride to Cozumel, Mexico - the start of our sort of Caribbean cruise gone loco. Loco because we had no tour guide so we found ourselves going back and forth in the ruins (talk about a daring exploration), and sometimes getting lost or going around in circles. But it was an exciting and thrilling experience - with dried throats and death-defying thirsts the entire afternoon).

For some historical background, we have learned that the Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.

Cozumel is an island in the Caribbean Sea off the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, opposite Playa del Carmen, and close to the Yucatán Channel. Cozumel is one of the ten municipalities of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.
