    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…

    #TAIWANdering Day 4: Yehliu, Shifen, & Jiufen Day Tour via KKday

    Four months ago, we went to Taiwan and shared our itinerary and budget which you can find here. So yes, this is a super late post as we had to prioritize a few blog invites. 😉 Honestly, I’ve already forgotten about writing this until a news reached me about Taiwan’s confirmation for extending the visa-free privilege for Filipino passport holders until July 2020. Such a great news for everyone! So now here’s our Northeast coast Taiwan tour. Our meet-up schedule was 8:45 in the morning at Taipei Main Station East Gate 1. We availed this tour from KKday since the sites are far from each other, thus, difficult to DIY. The tour…

    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…

    Calaguas Travel Guide + Itinerary and Budget

    When we hear Calaguas, what instantly comes to our mind is a long stretch of pristine beach with only few cottages that serve as temporary home for the city dwellers seeking to be away from everything. That’s how we see it, at least for us, considering that we were one of the first people who beheld its untouched beauty even before it rose to fame big time. As a matter of fact, on our first visit we had the whole beach all to ourselves as if we rented it for a couple of days, that was 2014. Over the years, many things has changed. It’s not just about few cottages…

    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…
