    The Beacon Makati Staycation

    Last week, we went to Makati to have that much-needed staycation with the fambam. It was very timely as I’ve gained enough Airbnb travel credits to use for my next booking. So I looked for a condo unit located on a high floor with great city view and nice pool. While browsing through Airbnb listings, I found a unit at The Beacon Makati that matches those basic requirements of mine, plus with a bonus New York-themed interiors! New York-themed Condo at The Beacon Makati The unit is situated on 39th floor of Arnaiz Tower; high enough to have a bird’s eye view of Makati City. It’s a studio-type airconditioned room…

    Selah Pods Hotel Staycation Review

    When you itch for a time-off and wish to go out there but you can’t because of unfavorable weather, a dreamy staycation automatically becomes an option. It’s always been a trend nowadays, and equally enjoyable even on a nice weather! Now we’ve found an all-season recreation to enjoy! There’s a cute and insta-worthy hotel in Pasay called Selah Pods Hotel which I’ve found through Zen Rooms. It’s cute in appearance, as well as in size so you are allowed take it literally. It may look grand in photos but it really is just a budget hotel perfect for budget-conscious folks seeking for simple staycation. Room Type: Deluxe Twin Room with View…

    Revisiting Coralview Beach Resort in Morong, Bataan

    About a month ago, I received a call from the owner, Sir Jun, inviting us to come again at Coralview and bring my family as a way of saying thanks for the blog. He even pointed out that we don’t have to work so it’s purely a vacation (no pressure in taking photos and writing a post about it). However, I still want to immortalize our experience hence I’m writing this. 😉 The journey So last June 13, we made our way for another beach trip despite the unfavorable weather. This time, we brought our own wheels so we could reach Morong faster (≈2 hours) from Bulacan, because we didn’t want mom…

    Crosswinds Tagaytay | A Family Getaway at the Switzerland of PH

    The scorching summer heat combined with extreme boredom have been causing us to crave for a cool escape. Tagaytay easily popped into mind when discussing about the escape plan as it is just about a 4-hr drive from Bulacan (or 2-3hrs from Manila), and it’s been 2 years already since Jeric and I visited the place when we hiked Taal Volcano. Moreover, it was 5 years ago when we explored the city with the family! Pre-travel Preparations I was browsing through Airbnb listings when I spotted an entire townhouse available for rent at Crosswinds Tagaytay. The house is a Swiss Quadrille unit that can sleep up to 12 people which…

    I Love Calaguas Island Resort | A Charming Retreat at the Heart of Mahabang Buhangin Beach

    Calaguas is basically known as a beach camping haven with pristine waters and looong stretch of white sand beach. It is one of the top-pick destinations for city dwellers, or even locals who wish to have a break from the daily routine. People usually set up their tents and spend a night or two in the island to fully experience how it’s like to be away from everything. Today, camping in tents is no longer the only option as many island resorts have popped up one by one over the years. The once bare and empty beach is now dotted with resorts offering services and accommodations. But there’s one resort…

    Coralview Beach Resort | A Relaxing Getaway in Morong, Bataan

    I’m pretty sure most of us (if not all) already came to a point wherein all we want to do is to just relax. Doing something over and over again for a long time makes us feel worn out and the best solution we have is to pause for a while and do something different from the daily routine. Because sometimes, the most productive and fruitful thing to do is to rest. Last week, we went to Morong, Bataan to have that much deserved vacation. We’ve been constantly operating and managing our business so we thought what we badly needed is a break from what we’re doing for at least…

    Isla Frontera de Pacifica Resort | Dingalan’s Next Top Attraction

    I’ve been very busy the past few months until an invitation reminded me that I badly needed a beach break. Sometimes we tend to forget that there’s more to life than just pushing yourself too much for a living. We forget that for our works to be done more efficiently, we need to unwind and take a break. Anything too much is bad. Balance is the key, as they say. But for now, let’s cut the drama and proceed to the actual trip. We were very excited we left home at 2:00 in the morning and arrived roughly 4 hours later. Isla Frontera de Pacifica Resort is about 30 minutes…
