Second Day it is! It’s gonna be an exciting follow up for our Cam Sur experience. But I must commend Avenue Plaza Hotel first for their comfy bed. Super comfy I felt like there’s no way I’m gonna leave my room & just stay there the entire day. But today’s itineraries were too exciting to ignore.
We’re gonna cover MangoRED’s shoot, still with the couples. This time at Bigg’s Diner Magsaysay. But before that, we just can’t afford to miss the breakfast buffet at Avenue Plaza Hotel.
I love their breakfast buffet! Sabi nga ni Kris Aquino, Lasang mayaman! After our sumptuous breakfast, we visited the dressing room for the couples, where Ms. Theresa Carbonell is doing their make up (using Ellana Mineral Cosmetics) and the hair courtesy of Regine Matias.
I believe they’re working on this early 50’s look (like the ladies we saw on the movie The Great Gatsby) to achieve a vintage feel on the eldest couple’s shoot.
While waiting for the shoot (set to happen at Bigg’s Diner Magsaysay), my co bloggers and I decided to play around the hotel a.k.a. photoshoot!

I had the chance to bond with these lovely girls roaming around the hotel and take photographs of this lovely 5-star hotel in the heart of Naga.
We head off to Bigg’s Diner Magsaysay. When we got there, this lovely couple were being photographed by sir RV of MangoRED.
Sir Ben Nasayao (the stylist & production designer) and Sir RV in action with the cutest couple that day. This is so 50’s legit pin up lovers out on a date. I just love everything about their look, the outfit, and the set up of the whole thing.
Working on our own BTS shots in between coverage haha. Thanks Paul for this wonderful shot :)
I was just there watching everyone do their magic, including this lovely couple just keeping things romantic and classy. One of my favorite shoots tbh :)
I just have to include this on my Naga City experience on this blog. I was craving for a cup of milktea. As a milktea lover, I really have to try Naga City’s very own, Bubble Town and their best-seller, Milky Malt Tea. It’s actually one of the best-tasting milktea i’ve tried. it’s just sad that there’s no Bubble Town in Batangas :(
After covering the shoot at Bigg’s Diner we went back to the hotel (which is by the way, a few walks away from Bigg’s Diner) and prepared for our group lunch with the couples. We were fetched at the hotel, going to Chef Doy’s, one of the premiere gourmet restaurants in Naga City.
A lot of celebrities ate here at Chef Doy’s. I’m impressed how they managed to make the freedom wall look somehow classy and fun without looking like a vandalized wall with celebrity notes and signatures. It’s cozy, very inviting and the vibe inside the restaurant is very Pinoy.
I just can’t help but be thnakful for being invited in this Naga City experience, I get to taste these Pinoy dishes at Chef Doy’s with a twist. You have the little squid cooked as adobong pusit for appetizer alongside a refreshing buko shake with sago’t gulaman, tortang sili, seafood paella, bagnet kare kare,

I was so into tasting everything that was being served to us that i lost track of listing down the names of the dishes. But if you’re going to Chef Doy’s you gotta try out their Pansit in Dinuguan sauce. Sobrang nakakabusog!
If you wanna check out on their dishes, you can go ‘like’ their facebook account https://www.facebook.com/pages/Chef-Doys-Gourmet-Restaurant/321324605902 :)
