    Surfing in Siargao (or not)

    Surfing in Siargao is probably an item in every Filipinos’ bucket list, and one of the first things that one does when in the surfing capital of the country. But when you already had that surf pinnacle, or your adventure-seeking self longs for something else, or you simply want to relax, what other things can you do aside from surfing? I went back to Siargao via Cebu Pacific, which is now offering direct flights between Manila and Siargao, for answers.

It’s also the newest Cebu Pacific destination! Cebu Pacific is set to launch Batanes route from Manila on March 25, 2018—just in time for the summer travel season.

    White Beach de Boracay

Thankfully, we were able to surpass it all and, as of writing, I am now on my sixth month of pregnancy.

    Mindanao, not the Island

    Several days back, I got an invite to attend a short trip to Philippine Eagle Center in Davao and witness the turnover of Philippine Eagle Mindanao to Cebu Pacific. Just gotten out of bed, I thought the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) is now being acquired by the country’s most popular low cost carrier. Since I still have several vacation leaves to burn and the year is about to end, I said yes.
