Quarantine Diaries # 12: It’s November again, baby!

Time flies! It’s been another 3 months since my last quarantine diaries! Since then, I have completed my COVID vaccination, have gone back to the office to work, have gone on several dates and weekend getaways, and finally, our country’s COVID cases have gone way down and there’s no more curfew! Woot! Let’s get rid…

Maragondon Adventure: Riverfront Garden Resort [2021.10.30-31]

I talked about how our Riverfront Garden Resort got canceled three weeks ago, but the resort finally started accepting guests again on Oct 20th. I immediately rebooked for the Oct 30th-31st weekend. I was afraid, things will change again and things will get canceled again. But honestly, so far, things are getting better and cases…

Boracay Accommodation Review: Campion’s Place

I don’t know why it took me this long to write about Campion’s Place! This was basically our home for the majority of our stay in Boracay. We initially stayed here at the beginning of our trip when Celine was still with us, then we moved to Chillax Flashpackers Boracay where we spent our first…

Quarantine Diaries # 11: In-between lockdown shenanigans

It’s been a while since I’ve done a quarantine diaries entry! And I think this is the perfect time because we are in lockdown again and everything is closed again. I literally went out with friends like 4 times since I got home in mid-May, and starting Aug 5, ECQ started again. I had plans…

Movenpick Instagram Feature!

Last month, my photo with Gelai at Movenpick Boracay was featured on their Instagram and I was like, “No big deal, since I hashtagged them so they’d find the photo, obviously.” But a few days ago, I was surprised to get tagged by Movenpick Hotels because they also posted the same photo Movenpick Boracay did….

Boracay in the New Normal: Travel Prep

A quick disclaimer: I am in no way encouraging anyone to go out right now. Whatever you do, whether it is to stay home or go out, safety should always be the number one priority. When I told someone of my plans, his first reaction was WTF, but also told me that I’m an adult…

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,…

Hello Love, Dubai Travel Prep [2019.11.06-13]

Sounds like naman ah! Ok, first things first. The preparations! While we booked this a long time ago, we didn’t start preparing until about a month before our trip. FLIGHT AND VISA We booked our ticket via Cebu Pacific in March 2019 for PHP4,676.89.  This was totally unplanned, we still didn’t have a destination for…

Another 48 Hours in Baguio! [2019.12.07-08]

Another short trip to Baguio! We really just wanted to visit the Christmas Village because we passed by The Manor on the way back from Le Monet to our hotel during our last visit. Ok, I had no preparations at all for this trip. I actually thought I won’t be able to go because of…

Summer in San Juan, Elyu [2019.05.18-20]

It’s been about 6 years when I last went to San Juan, La Union. I used to go a lot back when I was still living in Baguio because it’s just 2 hours away. But coming from Manila, it takes around 6 hours and even longer during holidays. We originally scheduled this for early May…
