The Battle of Cafes in Naga City

Due to the increasing number of cafes, I decided to visit one the other day. But before I say something the food I ordered. Here are a few thoughts regarding cafes in the city.

Finding the unique taste of every shop will stand out eventually after being compared to the others. Taste and preference will always be very subjective. Talking about coffee, I can honestly say that some of our local frappes, hot and iced coffees are actually tasting similar to one another and differs only in presentation. When asked "How's the coffee?" and if just I answer "kape", then your coffee is just like many others available in the city. 

It's a must for cafes to realize that patrons will come back if you have something in your menu that are not offered by others and you can proudly say that somehow you started it here in Naga and it's UNIQUELY YOURS. 

As an observation, these are the things that patrons usually consider when visiting cafes (hopefully I can find time to conduct a scientific study about this haha):
1. Good food and unique offerings
2. Affordability and value for money
3. Ambiance and "social media picture perfect / instagrammableness"

For owners, if you are innovative and creative in all those three areas, chances are you will last longer than those who gets stuck after reaching the comfortable state of earning what you are targeting to earn. When there's no more upgrading, you'll get stagnant and might end up like FRIENDSTER.

Review: Transcend DrivePro 220 Dashcam

Naga City - Our city roads are not all the time driven by responsible drivers. While we can safely say that provincial drivers are a bit more responsible than those in the metro, still we cannot the deny the fact that stubborn drivers also exists here. Last December 2015, I bought a dash cam with an intention of showing Naga City streets on a day to day basis and not mainly to submit photos or videos to a motoring magazine/social media account. For quite some time, I was using my smartphone as a dashcam. Most often than not, it heats up and worries me that it might not serve anymore its purpose considering that its capacity is only 16GB (As a blogger, you know it's difficult to delete photos or videos). I said to myself it's high time for me to get a dash cam or else my phone will wear out easily. Thanks to this motoring magazine, Top Gear to be specific, that I chose Transcend DrivePro 220 as my "reliable eyewitness on the road" showing a clear cut comparison to other brands of dash cams available in the market.

HERE's a full detailed specification of DrivePro 220 from Trancend's website.

Bought the unit here in Naga, at Hypertech Computers at ALDP Plaza Mall, Diversion Road. Last December 2015, it was around P7,600 but was able to get it around P7,300 inclusive of a 16GB memory card. Price at that time was similar to online stores like in Lazada. As of writing it ranges around P6,400 to P7,300 depending on the offer. DP220 can record in 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 30fps.

Here are my Top 3 Favorite features of Transcend's DP220. 

1. Forward Collision warning System to keep a safe distance and the Speed Alarm

"DrivePro 220's Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) will warn the driver when the driving speed exceeds the preset value and the vehicle gets too close to the car ahead. In such case, the system will alert the driver with a warning sound and warning sign on display."

The Speed Alarm feature is really advantageous in our long drives. I usually preset the Speed Limit to 90 kph or sometimes 80 kph


2. Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) 

"Designed to prevent potential incidents by warning the driver when the vehicle begins to move out of its lane. The system monitors the lane markings on the roadway, and shows an alert picture on the screen plus a warning sound whenever the driving speed exceeds the preset value and the vehicle starts to deviate from its lane."

3. Built-in WiFi and App




A one-minute Full HD 1080p at 30fps is around 111 mb in file size while the 720p at 30fps at 50 mb. Videos are easy to transfer to my smartphone and ready to edit just in case with an App that gets to be updated from time to time. The unit buttons are easy to navigate as well as the mobile App.

There's also a built-in battery to ensure uninterruptible recording. On full charge, it can record at around 30 minutes. An emergency recording red button is also in place just in case you need a video that needs to be secured and saved since the unit goes on a continuous recording mode cycle. I realized that its better to record in 60fps since we need a more detailed graphics in videos. At night, it compensates automatically for glare. 

Sample Video - FULL HD 1080p at 30fps

So there, at this point in time, my unit is still in good running condition. More videos are posted on my Facebook Page for reference. Pretty sure there are new models out in the market today, but if DP220 is still available, I would recommend purchasing this dashcam. Oh btw, the lower version which is the DP200 has almost the same features except for the GPS.

Alternative Route to Bicol: Quezon Eco-Tourism Road


As a frequent traveler going to and fro Metro Manila, the usual route has been pain in the neck, legs and arms of drivers especially when you reach Southern Tagalog roads. While others have the luxury to travel by air, our family tradition going on a south road has been a luxury of time for us.

For decades, from being a passenger during my childhood years to earning my driver's license, I have seen different road conditions that you can ever imagine which can be tantamount to imperfection. But, it is in this sense of imperfection that we get to see the reality of our government and even politics. Beyond all these, we have the chance to enjoy the scenic view of southern Luzon. Exploring alternative routes and recently taking bypass roads like in Candelaria and Tiaong has been in the past years due to recent developments.

Please don't use image without permission. 
Most of our roadtrips are motivated by family gatherings and since we have relatives all over Luzon, it's a good excuse to travel every year. I first heard of Quezon Eco-Tourism road from Inquirer's post HERE. With a trip in queue back in April 2016, we never had second thoughts of taking this alternative route mainly because, first, we love seeing new places and secondly, easing a little bit of traffic just to get in time to our destination is a must.

Below is my recorded dashcam video, southbound. Recorded by a Transcend DrivePro DP 220 at 720p. 



Alternative route going to Bicol staying away from San Pablo, Alaminos, Tiaong, Candelaria, Sariaya. (Video taken last May 1 when we were homebound to Naga). This route is different from the exsiting bypass roads in Candelaria and Tiaong.

From SLEX, go straight to Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (Star) Tollway and exit to Ibaan. Take San Juan then Rosario, Batangas road then turn right to the new Quezon Ecotourism Road. (Just put "Quezon Ecotourism Road" on Waze and everything is fairly easy, yup its accurate, don't worry.) Traverse through coconut plantations (my favorite part), farmlands of vegetables with signages of numerous resorts in Sariaya. Traffic here in Batangas towns are tolerable rather than Tiaong, Candelaria, Sariaya and even adding up San Pablo.

Please don't use image without permission. 


If you are northbound: After Lucena, turn left to Quezon Ecotourism Road, you will see a signage anyway. Then left to Rosario, San Juan, exit to Ibaan Star Tollway, then SLEX. The route is actually longer in a few kilometers, but considering the traffic in Sariaya, Candelaria, Tiaong and San Pablo, I'd take this route instead. We have experienced for so many times being stuck in San Pablo for more than an hour at around 2 in the afternoon, imagine the heat. Remember, it's not always traffic-free like in town centers for Rosario and San Juan, but again, I'll reiterate that it's tolerableCheck out the comments thread on that video on Facebook from fellow motorists for feedback and other suggestions.

The Healing Bread in Naga City


Naga City - It's almost one year since The Healing Bread (THB) opened here in our city. Offering healthy bread, buns, wine, cakes, burgers, pasta, pizza but with all organic ingredients. It's only yesterday that I had the chance to stop by THB. Even though Panganiban Drive is a daily route where THB is located, the idea that it's just there made me delay my visit, which I now regret haha.

Probably the only organic garden bakery in Bicol Region to date and Naga City is indeed blessed and lucky to have this kind of place. THB offers artisan breads meaning, distinctively made in small quantities traditionally by hand, making sure that the bread is of high quality and guaranteed fresh. 

This is one place that is totally guilt-free but not sacrificing good taste and flavor. 


They have this Blue Ternate Veggie Pizza which I want to try the next time I visit. The crust is made from the goodness of moringa, oat whole wheat course and watered with guyabano tea. Sounds really really healthy. They have lots of cake too.


Since it was early in the morning, I ordered for take out, Pandesal (3 pcs for P10) and currently my favorite the Moringa Basil Wheat Bread which is perfect for sharing for only P50.

Hoping to come back sooner next time. The mushroom burger, veggie pizza and cakes are on my list!
Let's live healthier, patronize local bakeshops like The Healing Bread.
