Travel in the Time of COVID-19: Quick Tagaytay Weekend [2020.11.28-30]

Even before November, Celine and I have been talking about doing a staycation for our birthday this year since we had to cancel our annual birthday trip. We did a survey amongst our friends and given the circumstances, obviously, not everyone is comfortable with that. So during our birthday brunch back in mid-November, Celine, Irick,…

Planet Grapes: 35th Birthday Brunch! [2020.11.14]

I met up with Celine and Irick on Nov 14th for brunch. Celine had a vet appointment in Mandaluyong so we decided to meet up in Shang. It was also Celine’s birthday on the 6th and mine on the 13th, so you could say this was our birthday brunch. Up until that morning, we didn’t…

Recommended Restaurants in BGC! (Part 1)

Since I did one Recommended Restaurants in BF Homes, I thought of doing my recommended restaurants in BGC as well. Since I work there and there are a lot of good places! Obviously, I will only be listing the ones I have been to and tried. There is no rhyme or reason to this list,…

What to Do in Siargao for 9 Days

Siargao is the last leg of our trip and we stayed here for 9 days. Our original flight back home, though, was from Butuan, because I kind of wanted to explore Surigao as well. 9 days in Siargao is too long, but that’s what we did anyway. I will also share later why we ended…

Recommended Restaurants in BF Homes!

Yup, still putting off that Siargao blog so this time, I’m writing about some cool places we went to slash recommended restaurants in BF Homes in Paranaque last December 2019 and February 2020! Since we are probably not going to have any new adventures soon, why not write about old ones and promote small businesses?…

#DumaGetMe Dumaguete + Apo Island

Ok, we definitely didn’t plan to go to Dumaguete, it was a last minute decision to come when we saw Apo Island from our beach. I briefly talked about this in my previous entry about Siquijor. We originally planned on going to Moalboal after Siquijor, or at least explore Cebu. I definitely have written down…

Romblon Take 2 + Boracay [2020.02.13-18]

I was actually gone for 6 days and 5 nights! I think this is my longest domestic trip by far, without having to resign. LOL. This was not super planned because I only booked my tickets a month before our trip. My high school friend, Mayne, attended a wedding in Boracay and wanted to explore…

Marinduque, the Heart of the Philippines [2020.03.11-13]

Aka the Trip That Got Cut Short I’m writing this on the first day of Metro Manila’s community quarantine, and supposedly, the last day of our Marinduque trip. What’s originally a 5-day trip was cut to 2. We went home on the 3rd day and pretty much spent the entire day travelling back home. But…

39/81 PROVINCES

I was curious, so I copied a list of the Philippine provinces and made a checklist to see which ones I have visited. I have only visited 38 out of 81. So surprised that I have not really visited Nueva Ecija and Tarlac, although I have passed by these provinces so many times. I have…
