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.

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

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.

For this year's holy week, my family and I thought about going somewhere to reflect and unwind--to get away from the stress at work and get our much-needed breather.

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.
