Puerto and the Prinsesas [2016.09.05-09]

This is hilarious. I have always had this draft saved, but I never really got to work on it, and then, while I was going through my emails, I found this email of the text I wrote for this blog back in April 2017! The trip itself was in Sept 2016 (that’s how delay I…

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…

Holy Week in Bataan [2019.04.18-20]

We went to Bataan for Holy Week earlier this year! Since extreme traffic is usually experienced during this time of the year, what place is close to Manila for a weekend and at the same time, not suffer from traffic? We then thought of Bataan because there’s no need for long land travel to get…

Laguna Day Trip [2019.03.24]

Ok, so this all started when we saw UPLB’s post about that beautiful garden, which is the Edible Landscaping project. So we scheduled it and off we went to Laguna on weekend in March. We started the day early. Celine and I met up at the bus station in Alabang South Station at around 8am…

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…

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…

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…

DAHILAYAN ADVENTURE PARK [06.23.2018]

We left really on our last day as well cause we were picked up by the van at 6:00am to take us back to Cagayan de Oro. So it’s the same shit, the van will take us to the port in Camiguin, we ride the ferry, we reconvene at the port in Cagayan and land…

VIETNAM & CAMBODIA TRIP: PHNOM PENH, SIEM REAP [2017.11.13-14]

Day 8: HCMC -> Phnom Penh It’s our last few hours in Saigon and it was pretty chill. We just did some shopping at Taka Plaza. I was able to buy phin (Vietnamese drip filter) which I am still using up to now. All you need is ground coffee and condensed milk. I was also able to…

WEEKEND IN WINDY TAGAYTAY! [2017.04.13-15]

Ok, this was a real staycation. We made the mistake of connecting Mine’s Netflix account to the Smart TV in the room and we ended up getting hooked on this Japanese drama called Good Morning Call. LOL! So all our plans of getting wine drunk on the balcony or by the pool went poof~ gone….

JAPAN TRIP: NAGOYA to OSAKA [2017.02.05-06]

DAY 1: NAGOYA MY FIRST WINTER TRIP!!! We stayed for 7 days (extended to 8, but the last day was spent at the airport) and visited 5 different cities – Nagoya, Osaka, Ikeda, Kyoto, and Takayama. We experienced flurry / snow in all 5 cities. So even if the ending of our trip wasn’t unexpected…
