Dubai Series: Birthday in Downtown Dubai [2019.11.13]

It’s our last day in Dubai! The week flew by so quickly! Although we were able to go to downtown Dubai on our first day, we didn’t really get to explore and although we have seen and passed by Burj Khalifa a few times during the week, this is the day that we’re going up…

EXPLORING THE NORTH: BANAUE, BUSCALAN & SAGADA [2020.01.16-19]

Banaue has always been in my bucket list. I know I always start my entries this way but it’s true. And I’m happy to be crossing them off one by one. This time, I didn’t have to research this because we joined a weekend tour organized by Tripwire Travels. The tour we joined was a…

2D1N IN CALAGUAS [2019.04.26-28]

What was supposedly a 3d2n trip became a 2d1n trip. Why? Around the period that we went, there were earthquakes happening and obviously, people were scared. Since this was a joiner tour, many of the people who were supposed to come with us cancelled at the last minute. It sucked obviously because I had an…

FALL IN FUKUOKA: AINOSHIMA ISLAND / TEMPLE RUN [2018.11.10]

We had some time in the morning so we decided to try on the yukatas in the common area and do a photoshoot! It was so fun! We tried our best to follow the instructions. LOL. After breakfast, it was off to another day trip! We saw this train while waiting 🙂 Going to Ainoshima…

FALL IN FUKUOKA: UMINONAKAMICHI / CANAL CITY / RAMEN STADIUM [2018.11.09]

On our first full day in Fukuoka, our first destination was Uminonakamichi Seaside Park. We definitely took our time though and had our free breakfast at the hostel. They have coffee and tea, different pieces of bread that you can toast, butter, blueberry and strawberry jam. It is enough. I really missed their toast once…

FALL IN FUKUOKA TRAVEL GUIDE

Celine and I are back in Japan! We were in Japan in March 2017 during winter, and this time we went to Fukuoka in November 2018 (8 to 13) for our birthday trip and to experience fall. I think it was the perfect decision because the weather was pleasant. It rained from time to time…

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: MELAKA [2018.03.03-04]

Day 4: Melaka I arrived super early in Melaka and it was still dark since they have a pretty late sunrise and sunset here as compared to the Philippines. After waiting some time at the bus stop, I decided to go to a nearby restaurant that is actually open for 24 hours. I had nasi…

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

Day 2: Penang My second day was spent at Kek Lok Si Temple and Penang Hill. They’re both pretty far from the city, but closer to each other. Also, I woke up pretty late. Seriously, the bed at the Queen’s Hostel is so comfortable and curtains don’t really give you an idea what time it…

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…

IKAW LANG ANG MAMAHALIN, CAMIGUIN [2018.06.21-22]

Wahaha, Gelli de Belen??? Day 1 Camiguin is definitely the highlight of our trip! I thought 2 days would be enough but I wish we stayed longer, I really would have stayed longer in the cold and hot springs! We woke up early cause we were off to Camiguin. We considered so many options but…
