One of the best road trips in the Philippines: Legazpi (Bicol)

“Let’s go home. I miss mommy and Daddy.” “I miss Madam Amelia, too.” And we were off to Manila from Singapore. Stayed a couple of hours in NAIA Terminal 3, then flew straight to Legazpi via Cebu Pacific to meet my family and in-laws. I grew up in a province 4-6 hours from Manila and possibly, 4-6 hours as well to Bicol, where this gem … Continue reading One of the best road trips in the Philippines: Legazpi (Bicol)

Pacman survived the “bad weather”

I knew that this moment will drag me back here and write something that I’d love to remember years from now. As an expat in the little red dot, everyone’s in awe whenever I tell stories of how Pacman turns the busy streets of Manila (and all parts of the Philippines) into ghost town whenever he has a fight. As crazy as it sounds, it’s like an unsaid … Continue reading Pacman survived the “bad weather”

No more #ChickenSad, #HaySalamat!

Jollibee is my childhood hero. Though I’m not a big fan of fast food, I crave for the regular yum, spaghetti and chicken joy every once in awhile. Up to now, there are very few Asian (except Japanese) brands that become “global brands.”  And for the Philippines, Jollibee is one brand that the country can be globally proud of and call its own. I visited home 2 … Continue reading No more #ChickenSad, #HaySalamat!

It’s always nice to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city every once in a while and find some time to have some time alone for reflection and meditation.  For me, Tagaytay is still the best place for keeping in touch with your self and be aware of whatever is happening in your surroundings and relationships. Because it’s just an hour (or two … Continue reading Tagaytay “Peaceful” Weekend Itinerary

Some people think that eating “balut” is a challenge in X Factor, some people likes it too much that they even make it to several different dishes. As a Filipino, I prefer eating it the traditional way: boiled with vinegar or salt.  You might or may not agree with me, but the taste of balut brings me memories of home that only belong to the … Continue reading

What I learned about Surfing

On top of my list when I was in my early 20s (Goodness! I’m saying this now!) was to surf, first was to climb a mountain. I usually have a timeline for my plans, Climb a mountain: 18, Travel abroad: 25, (both were realized before the deadline by the way. haha) but for surfing, it was just in my list but I never believed in actually … Continue reading What I learned about Surfing

Surfing trip: Zambales

Roadtrip. Fresh fruits. Waves. –Some of the few things that keep you high in Zambales, a province in the central part of Luzon (Philippines). For some people in Manila, it’s good to go to South and wander under the sea but some prefer to check out what’s there going North and ride on top of the sea. But I suggest to do both and cherish … Continue reading Surfing trip: Zambales
