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,…

My Korean Visa Story

So I am finally writing about this. I previously decided not to do this anymore, but I couldn’t bring myself to finish the Siargao blog so I changed my mind and thought about writing about this instead. This is not an informational blog, I’m sure there are so many out there if you just search…

Fall in Fukuoka: Harmonyland [2018.11.11]

Ok, this is way long overdue! But I need to finish what I started! Hopefully, I still remember some details. This trip was a year and a half ago and I wrote the first 3 parts in March 2019. Best of luck to me, LOL! Just to recap, here’s what I have posted about this…

Dubai Series: Dubai Parks and Resorts [2019.11.12]

Before anything else, I want to share a photo of the mosque near our hostel. It is right behind our building and I sat on one of the park benches quite a few times while I wait for Celine do some shopping at the convenience store. We totally got lost and accidentally took a longer…

Romblon Take 2 + Boracay [2020.02.13-18]

I was actually gone for 6 days and 5 nights! I think this is my longest domestic trip by far, without having to resign. LOL. This was not super planned because I only booked my tickets a month before our trip. My high school friend, Mayne, attended a wedding in Boracay and wanted to explore…

CANCELLEDT.

There was another cancellation today – the Pussycat Dolls concert, supposedly happening on May 9th. A few days ago, I got a mobile and email notification for Alanis’ concert, because I forgot to remove that from my Google Calendar. And that really made me sad. So far, I’ve cancelled a trip to Korea, a weekend…

ROMBLON AND TYPHOON [2019.12.01-04]

Aka The One Where We Experienced Signal #3 in Romblon Romblon has always been one of my dream destinations, because of its beautiful beaches. It was supposed to be part of our 1-month multi-city trip in the end of 2018, but flights to Tablas are always so expensive. I finally saw a ticket for sale…

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…

TRES CHISMOSAS IN ZAMBOANGA [2019.06.22-24]

Ok, so I know I haven’t updated in a while and life has been kind of busy. Well, honestly, I’ve also been quite lazy. I keep saying, I want a part-time job because I have a lot of time, or I want to study something. But here I am, still watching tons of Youtube videos…

FALL IN FUKUOKA: AINOSHIMA ISLAND / TEMPLE RUN [2018.11.10]

We had some time in the morning so we decided to try on the yukatas in the common area and do a photoshoot! It was so fun! We tried our best to follow the instructions. LOL. After breakfast, it was off to another day trip! We saw this train while waiting 🙂 Going to Ainoshima…

FALL IN FUKUOKA: UMINONAKAMICHI / CANAL CITY / RAMEN STADIUM [2018.11.09]

On our first full day in Fukuoka, our first destination was Uminonakamichi Seaside Park. We definitely took our time though and had our free breakfast at the hostel. They have coffee and tea, different pieces of bread that you can toast, butter, blueberry and strawberry jam. It is enough. I really missed their toast once…
