5D4N IN CORON! [2018.09-25-29]

I booked this flight months before and I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity because the ticket only cost me around PHP700. It was through Cebu Pacific during one of their sales – as usual. I asked friends if they wanted to come but September came, and it was still just me. I almost…

SWIMMING WITH WHALE SHARKS IN DONSOL!

After I quit my job in November, I went on a 25-day trip in the Philippines with Marc. We didn’t really plan out the whole itinerary, we just chose the places we wanted to go to and booked our flights. Every decision was done at the last minute. When he arrived in Manila on Nov…

ONE WEEK IN MALAYSIA: KUALA LUMPUR [2018.03.05-06]

Day 6: Kuala Lumpur I arrived at the TBS station at around 8:30am, so it is really a 2hr30m bus ride but it stops at TBS so I still had to take a 50-min Uber ride. It cost me RM34.15 and that already includes my 17% employee discount since I was still working at Uber…

ONE WEEK IN MALAYSIA: PENANG CITY TOUR 2 [2018.03.01-02]

ONE WEEK IN MALAYSIA: PENANG CITY TOUR 1 [2018.02.27-28]

I was excited to go back to Malaysia – solo this time! This is my third time after Kota Kinabalu in 2014, and Kuala Lumpur in 2016. I spent 3 days in Penang, 2 days in Melaka, and 2 days in Kuala Lumpur. There wasn’t really a lot of preparations for this trip other than…
