    10 Things to do in Guam Besides Shopping

    My US Visa is about to expire. After doing a bit of research online, I thought of visiting Guam. It’s only 3.5 hours away from the Philippines, and airfare is way cheaper than going to the USA itself. That’s why I didn’t hesitate to say yes when I got invited to Guam Visitors Bureau on their #InstaGuam event last January 5, 2020. If you’re planning to travel, why not #VisitGuam? I learned a lot of things you can do in Guam besides shopping and I”m sharing them with you today!   #InstaGuam I learned so much (and won a few prizes lol).

    I’m sure you’ve stumbled upon this post looking for some peace and quiet in the heart of Quezon City. You’ve come to the right place! Today we’ll be reviewing Cocoon Boutique Hotel. It’s eco-friendly, relaxing, and have excellent amenities at a fair price. It’s been almost 2 weeks since Taal’s initial burst of eruption (smoke and ashes). Macho kid and I are still evacuated here in Manila, staying in with our grandparents while his classes are still suspended.  We can’t say we’re having it “rough” because we are still blessed to have a roof over our heads and a room to sleep in.  I promised him a weekend-staycation to help…

    Commute Directions in Metro Manila using Sakay.PH App

    Grab is too expensive, Angkas is on the rocks. Today, I’ll be sharing with you the best commute directions in Metro Manila using Sakay.PH App. When I used to be a student, there was no smart phones yet. No google playstore, no apple app store. There were no programs or services available to make our travel any easier. It’s either you have your own car or take a cab. I remember trying to memorize all routes I needed to go to-from school. The train stations I drop off to, the sidecars I rode. Ah.. good times! We’ve gotten too dependent on-call rides that have we forgetten the art of commuting?…

    Joy-Nostalg Ortigas formerly Oakwood (Review, Rates, Photos)

    Staycations, we love them. It’s getting a vacation without the hassle of long commute. We just get what we wanted in the first place, rest. We’ve been trying out different ones across the metro and to be honest, most of them even the 5-star ones look the same. This makes Joy-Nostalg Manila in Ortigas different. It’s more than just a hotel, it’s feels closer to home. Joy-Nostalg Ortigas Room Options and Rates I used booking.com since they seem to have the more affordable rates when booking online. Studio Executive – 5,900php 1 Bedroom Suite  – 7,900php 2 Bedroom Suite – 17,900php (seems to be always fully booked tho) Joy-Nostalg Ortigas…

    Good Times at Singapore Science Centre| Travelling is Like a Dream

    When it comes to travel blogs, I (we) should keep in mind that it’s best to write as soon as possible. When the taste, sound, smell, moments, and memories are still fresh in our minds. It’s my fault that it took as long as 1 month to finish the entire Singapore Family Travel Diaries. The experience is slowly fading away like a dream. A good friend told me that when we shared each other’s sentiments on travel. Each place we visit is like a dream, and going back home is waking up. So without further ado, let me share with you the bits and pieces that my mind can fragment…
