Boracay in the New Normal: Travel Prep

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 and…

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,…

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…

THE QUEST FOR THE ADARNA + TOP OF THE GLO [2019.09.22]

I haven’t gone out with friends for weeks so I was excited to finally come out to join my friends in watching The Quest for the Adarna on Sept 22nd. While we all learned about this story when we were kids, not everyone remembers it! I don’t remember it. I don’t recall that the second…

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…

VERY INSTAGRAMMABLE VILLA JOVITA [2019.06.08-09]

We were originally planning to spend a weekend at Noni’s Resort but we ended up here. I still want to go there one day though. Anyway, so Villa Jovita is dubbed as the Bali of Batangas. I think there are similar places that have popped up with the Bali concept, but I believe this is…

INFLATABLE ISLAND: UNICORN BEACH [2018.05.23]

Subtitle:  A DAY AT THE INFLATABLE ISLAND! My friends and I scheduled a trip to Inflatable Island in Subic since we all had the same rest day. So… there are several passes to choose from depending on how many hours you want to spend on the inflatables. However, all passes grant you a full day…
