Club Balai Isabel + Aqua Park | Our First Christmas Together!

Club Balai Isabel + Aqua Park | Our First Christmas Together!

Happy 2019! It still hasn't sunk into me that 2018 is already behind us. (In fact, my mind is still in 2018. LOL.) This Christmas, we opted to just stay at home (and get lots of sleep), which made me remember what a fun Christmas we had in 2017! That year, we decided to spend our first Christmas together as a married couple somewhere we can relax, have fun and enjoy each other's company. We chose to stay at Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas. It's a few hours away from Metro Manila, but the travel time is definitely worth it. 

5 Affordable Places to Go to in Tagaytay on a Budget

5 Affordable Places to Go to in Tagaytay on a Budget

Tagaytay City has always been a quick and cold escape from the city. Aside from the temperature to enjoy, Tagaytay also offers a lot of places to visit and things to try, but most of it will have you spending. However, I thought of listing the things the boyfriend and I used to do in Tagaytay whenever we wanted to go on a "date" but on a tight budget. We used to go to Tagaytay a lot during college because I am from Cavite, and he is from Laguna, and somehow, Tagaytay has always been our "middle" place, because aside of the cool temperature, there are some things you can do here whilst not spending a lot.

I'm a little shy to tell you this, but I am going to anyway. I've been alive for almost 26 years now but I've never ever been to Baguio. At least before this impromptu trip.

There is really something about weddings. Even as guests, it makes you shed a tear or two (or bawl your eyes out) while being genuinely happy at the same time.

Escape to Camarines Sur, Bicol 2017

Bicol 2017

During long weekends, I wish I am somewhere, traveling, like everybody else. However, since I'm getting older, my body, my mind and unfortunately, my wallet (because I'm saving for something) is asking for a timeout. A time to breathe, relax, reflect and most importantly, sleep. It's almost May, but sometimes I feel like it's September already, due to the number of things I need to get on top of. But it's okay, because I like it that way. I'd rather that, that than an idle mind.

Anyway, so since I'm just at home during the next few days of summer (probably), here's a throwback post to satisfy my wanderlust: our Bicol escapade just this January.
