Thursday, November 30, 2017

Thankful for work leaves and holidays because I will finally be able to continue writing my wanderings in Cebu from a few weeks ago.

Paradise Dynasty Food Review: 8-flavored Xiao Long Bao, FTW!

Saturday, November 25, 2017

Dim sum has always been my comfort food and I would totally grab one at any time of the day. Months ago, my social media feed was stormed with these colorful baskets of dim sum. Upon further reading, I found out that the newly-opened Paradise Dynasty is offering the famous 8-flavored xiao long bao (soup dumplings) at its PH flagship store located in S Maison Mall, Conrad Manila, Pasay City.

Finally, I had the chance to visit them since I just live in the south! Lucky for us, southies! 💕
