Dampa to the next level: Seafood Night every Friday at Corniche, Diamond Hotel Manila

Step into a new level of delectation with exclusive Theme Nights and A La Minute Stations on selected days of the week. From Thursdays to Saturdays, Corniche at Diamond Hotel Manila presents special sets of dinner buffets to cater to a diverse range of palates which I think would still be impressive to the most discerning of guests.

Recently I tried their much-anticipated Seafood Night, where the finest local fresh catch takes center stage inside their massive restaurant. Reward yourself with a range of local fish and seashell varieties, such as fresh and saltwater shrimps, mud crabs and blue crabs, rock and slipper lobsters, lapu lapu, squid, mussels, clams and more!

Have them the way you like it: drenched in garlic butter, grilled, tamarind bisque, steamed or baked with butter and cheese! On the back end, they also make sure to feature their staff, with a weekly 'Chef of the Day' to make sure and surprise you with his/her cooking prowess and preparing your food exactly the way you want it. 

This is a great deal especially for those certified Dampa fanatics and 'enthusiasts' (hehe) who spend thousands ordering weighed seafood, farmers market style and pay a few hundred bucks more to have them cooked the way they want it. At Corniche, Php2,990 can give you unlimited access to all the fresh catch that you can get, and it already includes access to their Carving station (they have one of the most succulent steaks I have ever had), Japanese Station, Bread and Salad Station, Filipino Station, Chinese and Dessert Station! Can you get that in a Dampa? NOPE!

Check out the photos from last Friday's dinner:

In the meantime, Thursday nights are all about the 'Flavors of China' which highlights Diamond Hotel Manila's Chinese Sous Chef Yang Yong and his team. Enjoy traditional dishes like Salted Egg Crab to more modern dishes like the Kung Pao Prawns, as well as undisputed classics from their Dimsum stations. 

Saturday nights appeals more to the meat lovers, with a 'Steak Night' like no other. Relish on smoky and juicy meats from sirloin to lamb chops to grilled veggies combined with flavorful sauces.

See detailed prices below:
Thursday, Friday, Saturday Theme Night dinner buffet rate - Php2,990.00 nett per person
Lunch buffet from Mondays to Saturdays - Php2,380.00 nett per person
Dinner buffet from Sundays to Wednesdays - Php2,480.00 nett per person.

Promo will happen I think around August? Make sure you call them first before paying a visit at Corniche. 

BONUS: They have one of THE BEST UBE ENSAYMADAS in Manila! 
Make sure you go home with a box for you and your loved ones!

Corniche at Diamond Hotel Manila is located at Roxas Boulevard corner Dr. J. Quintos Street, Manila. For reservations, call (632) 528-3000 ext. 1121 or e-mail

My Snow Caps Review: The Effects Of Taking Snow Caps Oral Glutathione Capsules

There was a time where I was actually afraid of taking vitamins and food supplements because I was worried it would just make me feel bloated and fat. That time, I was young, naïve and a bit careless. It was the same case until I reached mid-20s and I started to look after myself even more.   So I decided to take vitamins every now and then to help me get through the daily stress and inevitable circumstances of drinking with friends. But never did I imagine that I will be taking glutathione, simply because I don't have a goal of having white and fair skin. I love my brown color, thank you very much. Little did I know that the effects of Gluthathione are far more impressive from what I know. Naturally, glutathione is produced by the liver and is considered as ont of the most powerful antioxidants which inhibits the production of toxins and free radicals. These toxins are usually caused by stress and other external lifestyle factors such as drinking, smoking and fatigue.

A Traveller's Guide When Eating Tamilok In Palawan

I'm not sure if it's just me, but if you are travelling in Palawan, you would notice that that a lot of the locals would know exactly what to say when it comes to the go-to tourist spots, especially promoting their exotic  Tamilok. I even had this weird imagination that all the people in Palawan were programmed to say all the nicest things for the sake of tourism. But I know too well that this is not true, because Palawan is just a wonderful place and there is nothing major that I had to complain about. But just in case you might be itching for  Tamilok, you should also know that there are certain rules to abide by. And this is just a quick guide when purchasing  Tamilok in Palawan. THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO PALAWAN'S FAMOUS TAMILOK     -Tamilok, thanks to Google, becomes a familiar term when you search for it. One of the locals told me that "it's not a wood, and it's not a worm". I'm not sure if you guys have encountered that same local
