Mount Kanla-on

The blistering cold of western winters are keeping #wonderwanderwomen indoors. Safe and snug inside, our thoughts are drawn within and back home.

CRATE bar [bakery] & kitchen : a Millennial success story

My niece, her husband and their two baby boys recently moved back to our hometown. 

Both independent and enterprising, they opened CRATE Bar & Kitchen last October and added a bakery as well this January.

We love spending holidays together, however hectic - but once again it is time for wonder | wander | women to head back to our relative bases in different parts of the world. And that means incredibly long flights.

bamboo dreams

We grew up where giant bamboo groves lined lazy meandering rivers. We listened to the gentle swishing and creaking in the breeze as we picnicked and snoozed in their shade.

In much dwindled numbers, our country still uses bamboo for indigenous houses in many of our provinces. The bahay kubo is still a much loved symbol of bucolic bliss.
