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…

MALAYSIA & LAOS TRIP: VIENTIANE to KUALA LUMPUR [11.10-11.2016]

DAY 9: VIENTIANE / KUALA LUMPUR Another day, another flight. We left the hostel at around 6:30 AM because our car was super punctual. We left without even eating anything so we were super hungry during the entire flight. We waited a long time at Wattay Airport that I wish we took advantage of the…

BACK IN SAN JUAN!!

I’m so glad that I was able to go to the beach before summer ends! We had a work holiday on May 17th because it’s Buddha’s Birthday in Korea, so I decided to say yes, when a friend invited me to go to San Juan that weekend. (Yeah, we follow Korean holidays in our office.)…
