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,…

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…

Island Life: Exploring Bantayan

When I planned this trip, I never imagined that I would be falling in love with the Island. We just simply wanted some R&R as an anniversary celebration but the moment we stepped out of the ferry we were literally awed by Bantayan’s beauty,the crystal clear turquoise water was unimaginable and the fine white sand…

Throwback: The Ruins of Bacolod

Feeding your eyes with such a beautiful sight is always a good idea. The Ruins of Bacolod is a testimony of tasteful richness and the elegance of living in the Spanish Era. The grand entrance looks straight out of a Disney Fairy Tale. It’s a pleasure to see your amazing beauty yet again, Philippines.

Quick trip outside Manila

The moment you find Dramanila intoxicating, you have to run for your life. Save yourself from the insanity and the handful of unnecessary inevitable stress, that’s exactly what we did on the 21st of February. We took a quick weekend trip to Palauig, Zambales and spent a relaxing morning by the beach of Magalawa Island. Which was…
