New Year at Anuva Residences [2021.01.01-02]

Celine and Irick spent New Year’s at Anuva Residences in Muntinlupa, but I still had work on the 31st and I didn’t want to leave my mother at home by herself. But I was able to join them on January 1st, at around 8pm. LOL. I was so late! But what’s important is I got…

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,…

Dubai Series: Beach, Cats, and Global Village [2019.11.08]

On this day, Ria and her boyfriend drove us around. It was a Friday and it’s the weekend in Dubai, so they didn’t have work. We took our time in the morning, had a leisurely breakfast and left before lunch. Since it’s hot in Dubai, people there are mostly out from the afternoon until evening….

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…

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…

48 HOURS IN BAGUIO! [2019.10.12-13]

Well, it was less than that actually. I left Manila at 4am on Saturday and was back home before 4am on Monday. It was a quick weekend getaway to the City of Pines! It was really just a weekend getaway to one of my favorite places, my home for 5 years of my life –…

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…

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…

RAK OF AEGIS [2019.07.28]

My high school friend Maine and I watched Rak of Aegis on July 28th. It was one of the earliest shows for this season because I think it only started on the 5th of July. It is now on its 7th season and is currently the longest-running Pinoy musical. We’ve been wanting to watch this…

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…
