4 days in Seoul

I will start this post by saying, if you have plans on going to Tokyo anytime soon, but also have Seoul in your travel list, I suggest you go to South Korea first. Trust me on this! While both countries have issues with each other, they have long intertwined history. If you look closely enough, their traditional dresses, food, architecture look a like. Both countries will definitely argue the differences…

San Rafael River Adventure

I have heard about this place in San Rafael, Bulacan that wasn’t so far from Manila and that it had a ton of activities that we can try out. Upon our arrival, the place looked a lot different from what

Bali, Indonesia for 5 days

Indonesia has 17,508 islands with hundreds of beautiful locations to visit and enjoy for any short or long holiday. I have had a chance to live in Jakarta in the past and it is very much reminiscent of Manila, the hustle and bustle of its downtown metropolis, the traffic jam and even some of the words they speak mimic that of ours!

Subic, my all time favorite!

For beach addicts like myself, I need a beach fix almost every couple of weeks. Thank God Subic isn’t th at far and it never fails in providing me with the necessary reboot before I head back to reality.

Palawan for 5 days!

 I didn’t have the time to get the itinerary fixed for this trip, so I asked someone to organize it for me. Luckily they found CAB Travel and Tours​ and we booked everything through them except the flights.Palawan was definitely a revelation. I would often forget that I am in the Philippines and would think that I was in Bali or Phuket. Thanks to the agency, this trip was hassle free.Planning


What started out as an attempt to break the monotony on how I spend my weekends has turned into somesort of a stress reliever for me. I spend 1-4 hours on the man made lakes of Pradera in Lubao, Pampanga or in Nuvali, Santa Rosa. I have come to love this sport.
