Food Bits: Tasting Gringo's Mexican Grill

It was my first time to try the special dishes here at the Gringo's Makati when our team decided to have a team building dinner. The food they served truly satisfied my cravings since I'm a seafood and Mexican food lover!

Yes, Gringo's offers a combination of Mexican dishes and grilled goodness.

So without further talks, let me share with you some of the food I've tried during our dinner. These are the dishes on our table:

Grilled Squid in a Mango Sauce

The Mexican Rice

Grilled Chicken

A Garlic Mushroom

Taco Con Carne

Gringo's is open 24 hours. Aside from grilled and Mexican food, they also offer party drinks and juices. Oh by the way, I love their house blend iced tea and lemonade. Their house blend iced tea is thick and taste like my favorite 'milk tea.' Meanwhile, the lemonade is made of fresh fruits - lemon and calamnasi combining a sweet sour taste. This is their drink I love the most!

Definitely, we will be coming back here for more! The Mexican rice, the grilled squid in a mango sauce, and the lemonade marked my senses! 

Have you also tried Gringo's? Which of their menus you love the most?! 03/09/2019 (Bits of Rocks)

The 10TH PIPC #PyroMusicalPH Experience in Clark, Pampanga

After more than one year, it's great to be back in Clark, Pampanga! This time, to experience and cover the greatest world musical fireworks competition participated by the different countries around the globe!

The event took place in SM City Clark. I've joined the Saturday,  March 2, 2019 event. But before wed discussed my last Saturday night's experience, let me tour you back in my first SM Clark experience way back in 2017. Yes, me and my #TeamRR  team been here to cover the VIOS Cup with the celebrity racers. My interviews and event coverage were on my official YouTube channel if you want to watch them all!



Now back to the present, here are my pyromusical story:

The Philippine International Pyromusical Competition (PIPC) is a tradition at the SM Mall of Asia that has brought endless enjoyment to millions of Filipinos each year. For the past 9 years, the pyrotechnics have always complied with the international standards for environmental safety, at par with countries like Canada, Australia, Hongkong and famous theme parks around the world.

In full support of the ongoing Manila Bay Rehabilitation Program of the DENR, SM Supermalls will move the 10th PIPC from SM Mall of Asia to SM City Clark in Angeles City, Pampanga starting on February 23 to March 30, 2019.

The Wide Field New Venue in SM City Clark


The Philippine International Pyromusical Competition’s annual program has 10 competing countries who take on a battle of breath taking fireworks performances amid symphony of sounds.

On March 2, Germany’s 9th PIPC champs “Steffes-Ollig Feuerwerke” and Portugal’s “Pirotecnia Minhota” will treat the crowd with their tradition and mastery of skills in the sky.

On March 9, the Pampanga skyline will witness France’s “Brezac Artifices” followed by a burst of vibrant colors by Finland’s Oy Pyroman.

Italy’s very own “Viviano S.R.L.” and last year’s champion, United Kingdom’s “Pyrotex Fireworx” will battle it out on March 16.

Here are some of my photos taken during the event:




Canada’s turn to paint the night sky bursting with colors on March 23 with their very own “Fireworks Spectaculars” and China’s Polaris Fireworks will surely stun the crowds.

To cap off the competition and close a decade of giving the best pyromusical exhibition in the Philippines, March 30 promises the most spectacular display of colors and surprises with Poland’s Surex Firma Rodzinna and the Philippines’ own Platinum Fireworks Inc. in a grand finale like no other.

The annual PIPC Photo Contest will also highlight entries from amateur and professional photographers wherein winners will receive special prizes from PIPC’s partners and sponsors.
