India has always been one of my dream destinations because of the most beautiful monument of love in the world - the Taj Mahal.

Steak Perfection at 22 Prime, Discovery Suites



In  Manila, there are only a few steakhouses that could rival the best ones in the world. When I received an invitation from the Discovery group to have dinner at their flagship steakhouse, 22 Prime, my immediate answer was a yes. This multi-awarded restaurant is a favorite of bona fide carnivores in the metro that consider steak as their virtual kryptonite.

Our welcome from the Discovery team that night was one fit for VIPs. The Corporate Chef, Marketing team and even the General Manager were all there to greet us. It was a pleasant surprise that they were joining us for dinner. I do love meeting and talking to people when I get the chance. As soon as we sat down, I immediately got caught in our engaging conversations that I almost forgot that we were there to eat steak.
