Jaysee's Influential Bloggers for 2011

Living on a dime for a day | YMA Social Discovery Walk

Held last 2nd – 3rd of May 2011, we all had given poverty a new meanin…

Afternoon, after work last January 3, 2011, I immediately took a cab to the Academy for International Culinary Arts (AICA) located in The Gallery in Mabolo. It was there I met Chef Vance Borja, school's stakeholder and owner of The Veranda in Parkmall and the Penthouse in IT Park. Yep, and he still finds time to cook and despite his status, he is really down to earth and I wouldn't have known any of that if Evanjohnn of did not tell me.  He personally taught us the…
