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,…

LAKBAY MUSEO [2019.07.31]

I just started my part-time job (6 hours max a day) in August so I haven’t been writing but I want to share my experience at the newest museum in the metro – Lakbay Museo. I came across an article about this even before it opened and tapped Dave to come with me. Coincidentally, I…

PLANETARIUM + RIZAL PARK + SEA RESIDENCES [2019.08.10-11]

So I cancelled my flight to Tuguegarao… I had a flight booked to Tuguegarao on August 10th because it was a long weekend. But it’s been raining prior to that weekend and I felt like I was going to have a hard-time travelling solo in Santa Ana so I made the executive decision to not…

Ok, so I know I haven’t updated in a while and life has been kind of busy. Well, honestly, I’ve also been quite lazy. I keep saying, I want a part-time job because I have a lot of time, or I want to study something. But here I am, still watching tons of Youtube videos…

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.

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…
