It was an early Saturday morning when Josiah and I made our way to his parents home. We made sure to not make any plans for that weekend. All we knew was that we were to show Anne Marie, a family friend who was visiting from Australia, the Pinto Art Museum that day. But before we headed to museum, we made a quick stop at Eggs For Breakfast to start the day with a hearty meal.
Your food adventures should be as interesting as your adventures on the road, or in life – in general. Blackport is a travel-themed restaurant owned by travel bloggers Kirk Acebron (@kirkacebron) and Atty. Mark Julius Estur (@lakwatserongtsinelas). And it would definitely make your food adventures interesting. Blackport offers comfort food like regular pizza, burgers, and pasta but with a twist. Located at Scout Rallos, Quezon City, this makes a good addition to the restaurant scene near Tomas Morato Ave.
I do not know much of Lanao Del Norte if I were to be honest even when I live a few minutes away from it all my life. My encounter with this province was always just looking at the moving scenery when I would pass by during travel. Beyond that, I do not know much of this underrated province close to home. Hence, why here’s the top reasons why you should visit Lanao Del Norte on your next travel to Mindanao.
It has been a forgotten-number of years from the first time I stepped on its sandy beaches, swam in the waters of the Sunken Cemetery, laid quadrants on its land areas, strategically placed mist nest to catch fruit bats and some innovative ways to catch insects and some sorts, and dry pressed some leaves and other plant parts from Camiguin. Yes. Camiguin Island used to be my playground — the open laboratory of experience and learning long before I became a travel […]
Pansol at Calamba, Laguna is a known getaway destination for Metro Manila residents for a quick escape from the chaotic streets, and fast-paced routines of the Metro. Be it for family gatherings, barkada getaways, or office/team outings, Pansol has always been the go-to for the numerous private hot spring resorts. I got a message from a travel blogger friend who I meet on the road few years back inviting Josiah and I to join a group of travel bloggers for […]

Nobu Hotel Manila is one of the hotels at The City of Dreams Manila, an entertainment complex at Parañaque City, Metro Manila. I got to stay at this Japanese boutique hotel for two nights for the annual Blogapalooza event.
Surprisingly October has been my busiest so far! And what a way to spend the last weekend of the month – with Iligan Bloggers Society and the #Blogafam! Packed my bags again for the Blogapalooza ConnecteD – one of the biggest gathering of different types of content creators and leading brands in the country.

The City of Dreams Manila at Aseana Avenue and Roxas Boulevard in Parañaque is a 6.2-hectare luxury integrated resort and casino complex. It was not my first time to visit the entertainment complex at Parañaque City but it has always impressed my every time. The clean and sleek design is always aesthetically pleasing.

My school “sports” were always the indoor ones that includes intense mental activity. It surprising for me when I did for tried out running when the fad of fun runs where at its high, who wasn’t at the time, right? User Performance Review on Xiaomi V2 Fitness Band Anyways, […]
Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar at Bagac, Batan has always been on top of our travel destination list. Our last month before Josiah and I can officially say that we’ve been married for a year has been busy months for us. We decided to try out a travel destination in the Philippines we have yet to visit and the best that we could do was weekend getaways near Metro Manila when schedule allows it.
Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is a unique Philippine-Spanish heritage resort. It composes of old Spanish houses that were built between the 17th and 19th centuries. What makes Las Filipinas de Acuzar unique is that the houses were collected from old Filipino families from various towns in the country, and were carefully dismantled, transported, and reassembled in Bagac, Bataan to add to the collection of the resort. On the weekend we went to Bataan, Josiah and I decided to see […]
Moving to Metro Manila has been a challenge for the small-city girl like me. Everything is fast-paced with everyone busy with their lives and its hard to keep up when you’re stressed, and in a dire need of a break. Since relocating to Metro Manila, I have been itching every now and then to check out the travel and tourist destinations along with my husband during the weekends. It’s my little window of sanity away from work, and the stresses […]
Mobile phones however convenient these are, are one of the necessary evil we all carry around. It keeps us connected to people but disconnects us with the present, it buys us time to get things done but takes away time when we get caught up in it, and it does us good when we learn new things with it but also stagnates and narrows our thinking when we are not being careful. Being engrossed online, we forget to live in […]
Right across the street from the Marikina Shoe Museum is the old Marikina Church called Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish. It stood massively with the cars, trikes, cabs rushes by in the small streets surrounding it. We decided to check it out and see its architectural uniqueness and appreciate it alongside the its history.
I am not a fan of Metro Manila, or any large cities for that matter but what I do like about it is the numerous museums you can find, and get lost at. The museum geek in me have always wanted to visit the Marikina Shoe Museum but getting around Metro Manila is a challenge itself for me. Around nine months after Josiah & I got married and relocated to Metro Manila we finally got the chance to go around […]
UPDATED | Batanes is one of the top travel destinations in the Philippines and one of the recommended travel spots in the country. Its geographic location makes it a frequent typhoon path and is also the reason why it is known for its howling and strong winds. But however many typhoons that passes by this part of the Philippines, Batanes is still on top of eveyone’s travel destinations. I’ve been meaning to visit Batanes for a couple of years but never […]
What’s truly attractive about Batanes is that despite being one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines, it remains largely unspoiled by progress. This is mainly due to the small archipelago being designated as a Protected Landscape and Seascape by the Filipino government in an effort to preserve its rare natural offerings. Apart from its indigenous plants, this also includes Batanes’ extremely diverse marine life, undulating terrain, limestone cliffs, and well-preserved rolling hills.
