    Richmonde Hotel Ortigas Staycation via Traveloka

    So, I heard there’s this new flight ticket and hotel booking app called Traveloka that my friends have been suggesting me to try. I recently downloaded it and decided to see how it works. And as a result, I booked a one-bedroom suite at Richmonde Hotel Ortigas for a weekend staycation.

    White Beach de Boracay

    When Rowjie and I first learned that I am pregnant, it was blissfully chaotic. It’s still blissful, but less chaotic now. The first trimester was really critical and we were worried all the time. Thankfully, we were able to surpass it all and, as of writing, I am now on my sixth month of pregnancy. That being said, I urged Rowjie that we push through our Boracay trip last December as a stress-reliever.

And though I felt like someone’s going to shoot me anytime, ironically, I also felt that I…

    Wave Cave, A Surfer’s Lodge & Beach Bar

    I had long dreamt of witnessing the world-renowned tubes and barrels of Cloud 9. So when I won a contest by Dispatch Magazine last May 2011 with round trip plane tickets to any local destination I prefer as prize, I, without thinking twice, chose Siargao.

    Anh Dao Guesthouse

    Do you remember how it felt like the first time you did it? Have you really thought about it before doing it? Was it scary? Was it something you won’t forget while you still live? So, how was your first sleeping-in-the-airport experience? It scares me so much that I haven’t tried it yet.
