Camiña Balay nga Bato: Iloilo’s Great Treasure

My first visit to the City of Love back in 2012 made me include Iloilo in my list of towns/cities where heritage conservation is at its best. As a lover of history, I was in awe of its well-preserved ancestral homes. Some of the oldest […]

Dinagyang’s Pompous Ati Tribe Competition

Dinagyang’s Pompous Ati Tribe Competition

More than the revelry and pomp, Iloilo’s Dinagyang Festival focuses more on the religious aspect which is the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the replica of the image of Sto. Nino from Cebu. It also commemorates the arrival of the first Malay settlers in Panay […]

Cebu: Canyoning and Cascades

Cebu: Canyoning and Cascades

My first love affair with Cebu was back in 2014 when I backpacked in Boljoon and Moalboal. Back then, I knew that I had to go back as I haven’t fully explored this gifted island yet. For years, my friends have been raving how magnificent the […]

Agos Boracay: Rooms + Beds – A Better Second Time

Getting to Singapore Downtown After Midnight

Getting to Singapore Downtown After Midnight

My Singapore trip last August was unplanned on my part. So that meant booking in a rush since I went with my friend who already had her ticket booked a few weeks earlier. But her flight’s arrival time was past twelve midnight. I had no […]

Why Stay in Box Capsule Hostel Singapore

Why Stay in Box Capsule Hostel Singapore

My Singapore trip a couple of weeks ago was unscheduled and timely at the same time. Unscheduled because the decision to accompany my friend came in the last few days of her departure and timely since I felt the need to take a break from […]

Tayo Na Sa Antipolo

Tayo Na Sa Antipolo

I have always longed to explore the heart of Rizal province. But those plans in the past either did not push through or was cancelled altogether. Blame it on my changing work schedule. But God truly listens what’s in my heart when another opportunity came […]
