Flamenco dancer Isabel Bayon performed the Caprichos de Tiempo (The Whims of Time) in Manila yesterday


Yesterday, in rainy Tokyo, living a Travelife, I had a very nice lunch at a two-star Michelin restaurant with someone from Manila.

I chose this restaurant because it's relatively unknown and under-the-radar in spite of receiving two stars.

A STARRY, STARRY CITY

Tokyo has the most restaurant stars, after all, so Michelin two-star restaurants are almost as numerous as truly good ramen restaurants.

I was curious to see how this restaurant would fare vs. the more famous two-star establishments.

TRADITIONAL JAPANESE CUISINE
AT ITS BEST



The food is very traditional Japanese, but it was mindblowingly excellent in a very subdued way. There are no fireworks in Japanese cuisine.

Just tranquility and a quiet enjoyment.



I will write more about this little restaurant soon as I so enjoyed the food.

The meal was simple and yet creative and truly delicious, even in a city full of delicious, and even in a never-endingly delicious Travelife.

A PERFORMANCE BY
FLAMENCO STAR ISABEL BAYON


Meanwhile, in Manila, Spanish flamenco star Isabel Bayon performed an equally mind-blowing flamenco show entitled the Caprichos de Tiempo (The Whims of Time) under the auspices of the Embassy of Spain.

This show reportedly took Manila's flamenco lovers overs by storm.

Isabel Bayon was greatly praised for her artistry, grace and soulful dancing.



I am so sorry I missed this riveting performance as I am a big fan of Spanish culture, and especially of the flamenco.

Just look at these lovely photos and you can tell that this show is not just your usual flamenco show.
