Calvin and Hobbes tattoos at the beach

Today, several of my colleagues at Victory Christian Fellowship and I went to the Kamana Sanctuary Resort and Spa at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone for a day of unwinding and relaxation.

Hot Star Large Fried Chicken

Last week, my family and I walked into Hot Star Chicken on Banawe Avenue in Quezon City, eager to try its much-touted “large fried chicken.” We were not disappointed! Hot Star Large Fried Chicken is a fried chicken shop originally from Taiwan. Known for its “specially-marinated and cut-to-perfection XXL fried chicken fillet as big as your face,” Hot Star Large Fried Chicken Philippines really had large chicken!...
