One Week in Baguio! [2022.01.13-19]

I am so glad I decided to stay a week in Baguio! The thing is, even though we have had this planned before COVID even happened, I was not even supposed to go cause they decided on dates that would fall during my Siargao trip. As we all know, a terrible typhoon hit many provinces…

Welcoming 2022 in Cold Tagaytay! [2021.12.30-2022.01.02]

Celine and I decided to spend a few days in Tagaytay for the New Year this year. We are definitely missing Irick this year though. We were there for 4 days, but we left early on Jan 2nd because we figured there would be a lot of people on their way back to Manila. We…

Quarantine Diaries # 13: Another year is almost over!

Another year is almost over and so much has happened during the past few months! I definitely took advantage of the freedom we kind of have now, met friends that I have not seen for years, and did things that I have not done for a while. I hope this continues *fingers crossed* but let…

Happy Birthday To Me At Torres Farm And Resort [2021.11.13-14]

It’s mah birthday! I really thought I was going to cancel this because Mine had some health issues the weekend before and Celine was unsure if she was going to be able to come. But in the middle of the week, Celine confirmed and Mine felt better so we were a go! And that made…

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,…
