My Life in UP

  I think it’s fair for me to dedicate one entry about my life in this university. Currently, as of writing, I allot one day a week of academe here at this campus. Where should I begin? I’m still overwhelmed, anxious and at shock that I’m doing what I think is meant for me since…

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

  Hello, Yellow! The moment I stepped inside the Yellow Door, I felt home straightaway. This is exactly what I’m looking for – chill, comfy and hip vibe, in the heart of Tacloban! 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…

The Perfect Wine and Dine Spot: Terraza of Balay Dako Tagaytay

My girl friends and I have a monthly friendship challenge, to find a new place for our wine and dine. We found the perfect spot in Tagaytay! We conquered the 3 hours holiday traffic for a sumptuous glass of wine ❤️ We ended up at Balay Dako. It’s the new addition to the growing Antonio’s…

Photoblog: Pinto Art Museum

On a rainy Saturday, I’ve decided to spontaneously try something new with JR. Just less than an hour from home you will find a haven of visual motivation – Pinto Art Museum lies in the mountains of Antipolo. Feeding your soul with creativity is a therapy.                           …

Santorini in Tagaytay

Last weekend we were so close to nature. I’ve never seen this side of Tagaytay until I booked an overnight stay at Estancia Hotel. Quoting Mr. Morrie Schwartz, ‘I am drawn to nature like I’m seeing it for the first time.’ It has one of the best views of the lake and I felt so…
