My husband and I have been hearing a lot about Okada Manila. It's quite far from where we live but since people have been raving about the dancing fountain, we just have to see it. If you haven't been there yet, check out this post to see what you've been missing

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.

A Beautiful (and Intimate) Baguio Wedding

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.

Intramuros Tour | New Bioré UV Products review + photo gallery


Last Saturday, I was given the opportunity to join a sight-seeing tour by Biore Philippines. On the day of the event, I just found out that it wasn’t just sight-seeing at all. What comes with it was a brief history of the old Manila and our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal. The fun stuff did not just end there, as I was also one of the first people who got to try the brand’s latest summer-ready products! Talk about being productive and educational, yeah?

Hotel Amapola Rockwell, Makati City review


What: Casa Amapola
Where: 257 Amapola St., Palm Village, Makati City
(Estrella, EDSA side--take note because there's another Amapola St. near Buendia)

The boyfriend and I love having staycations for every major occasion like birthdays and our anniversary. This year, I made it a point to make it simple yet unique and memorable. I've had lots of plans in mind, like booking at a hotel in Tagaytay City or go somewhere north like in Antipolo. However, I came across this deal at MetroDeal. After thinking a lot of times, reading reviews online and failed payment transactions (Damn BPI for their on-and-off again online banking!), I finally booked it and guess what, no regrets.

Solemar del Pansol, Calamba, Laguna

          Saturday night, I was told (by told, I meant I was asked--and that I have to come. lol) by the boyfriend that he and his family will celebrate his younger brother's birthday at Pansol, Laguna the following day until Monday, which is a holiday. We were both supposed to attend a birthday party, but since it was his brother's birthday celebration, it is the priority.
