Watching Sunrise in Angkor Wat

It was raining when we visited Angkor Wat Temples 2 weeks ago, September 20, 2017. The good side about it is the lush greenery surroundings of the temple that replaced the usual sepia-like atmosphere. It was 4:30AM when our tuktuk driver picked us up at Day Day Inn hostel (see my boyfriend’s review of the…

48 Hours in Hanoi, Vietnam

One must travel smoothly, slowly and steady – that’s the total opposite of our Hanoi experience. It was rough, fast and exciting! 🙂 Rough because there was only 1 flight available daily from Manila to Hanoi via Cebu Pacific – and it’s midnight! There was literally no sleep weekend for me and JR. Mainly me,…

A Taste of Davao

If you’re looking for the best experience for you and your family, Davao is the best fit! I couldn’t squeeze everything in 4 days, there’s so much to see with so little time. We tried to have a taste of both lands and waters in 4 days. Here’s a peek of our trip 🙂  Secdea…

Bohol: 4 Day Adventure

Right after we celebrated our 3rd year anniversary in Leyte, JR surprised me with a ticket to Tagbilaran for my birthday. I’m so excited to take this trip because I’ve always wanted to see the Chocolate Hills. I heard several myths about it when I was in grade school and I remember believing them too 🙂 It’s…

Day Trip in Burot

I needed a reset button and I was badly in dire need of quick beach trip last week. This trip has been long overdue and finally all our schedules matched and we were able to push through. We decided to head to Burot because, why not? It’s only a few hours away from a Manila…

Photo blog: Yellow Doors Hostel

Every corner is bursting with creativity; they have comfy beds, functional rooms, quirky and colorful decor. It’s a mix of rustic and…

Kalanggaman Island: Leyte’s Paradise

We spent our 3rd anniversary under the stars, inside our tent in this beautiful paradise and I’m glad we did! Even if it took us 2 hours and a half of bumpy roads and an hour boat ride to get here, it was all worthwhile. Kalanggaman Island is located in the municipality of Palompon, Leyte. I’d…

Calaruega Visit with Family

My mom flew in last January and she ensured to visit one of her favorite churches, The Calaruega Church in Batangas within her 3 week stay. I took a few shots of the structure. It gave me the perfect solemn wedding feel! I suddenly want to get married here!!! 🙂  

Road trip: Southern Adventure

  We were equipped to hail the road for 4 hours to Real, Quezon. Everything was going smoothly until it rained on the 2nd hour. We were all excited first-timers in Real Surf. I was telling myself that I need to gather guts and should try to surf even once in my life. I even…

Coron: Piece of Heaven

How is it possible to have so many beautiful landscape and waters in one place? Coron, I fell in love with you so easily and even from a far! I’ve been wanting to go to Coron since it was featured on several blog sites during the early 2000s. After I graduated from college I included…

Hong Kong: Traveling Like Locals

You easily fall in love with the cities you visit. That’s why your heart is always full – full of new things, new friends, authentic taste and your eyes always glimmer with all the new beautiful sight. That’s what I feel towards Hong Kong – I have an enormous love for this city. And it’s…
