A sacred mountain in Hindu mythology, “Mandara” is formed by the two words “mana” and “dara” which means mind and single line. This is where The Mandara Spa derived its name – one of my new favorite spa destinations in town.
With people always press for time nowadays, a one-stop venue where you can pretty much accomplish a lot of things is highly appreciated. Lucky for those people who are around Banawe area, there is this new lifestyle complex called Dapitan 55. Dapitan 55 lifestyle complex houses Garage Café, Baan Kun Thai, BZ Bean Pitstop and […]
The Philippines Department of Tourism (PDOT) recently conducted an Instagram photo contest with the theme “Soul of the Philippines”. And I am more than happy to be selected as a two-time finalist! Yes, two of my submitted photos were chosen as part of the Top 25 Finalists.

Surrounded by mangrove trees and with a serene view of the sea, Maquinit gives that enchanted vibe while you’re taking a rejuvenating spa. Therapeutic Dip After a tiring yet fun hike at […]
Sear Steak Scullery is another brainchild from the Red Baron Group that brought affordable steaks in a very relaxed atmosphere that is Red Baron. With the intention to bring more premium cuts of meat, Sear Steak and Scullery was established in the famous foodie hub in the metro – Banawe.
The green scenery that welcomed our group is calming and refreshing. I can hardly remember the last time I visited a farm – probably more than a decade ago already. Just imagine how excited I was when we finally arrived at Paradizoo in Mendez, Cavite.
If it’s you’re first time in the City of Pines, there are some mandatory places you should be visiting. It’s like having to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France and Statue of Liberty in New York, USA. For the 100% certified Baguio tourist getaway, do not forget to drop by The Mansion.
Antipolo has become one of the favorite weekend destinations because of its proximity from the Metro. Known as the Pilgrimage Capital of the Philippines, people would often flock the place for contemplative church visits. Aside from that, those who wanted to unwind from the busy city life do get a dose of some nature escape […]
Aside from its cold temperature, nature’s view is the other top reason why I would always want to visit Baguio. A park overlooking the Cordillera mountains, a quick stop at Mines View Park is definitely one of the recommended things to do when in Baguio especially for the first-time visitors.
Art has a special place in my heart. It is indeed one of the things I look forward to whenever I travel. From fabulous art museums to the unpopular streets – gazing at such creative pieces is one of my simple joys in life. But I didn’t know there’s more to just appreciating art. Not […]
Getting off our service van, a busy local market confronted us. Different stalls are parading different commodities. The cold Baguio weather is being tampered by the summer heat as we went around.

Laperal Haunted House or more popularly known as White House in Baguio has been opened to the public as a tourist attraction. We were able to visit it on a Friday the Thirteenth. This was not intentional. Probably because of too much fright we put in our heads, we just realized the date when we […]
A famous tourist destination in Baguio, Tree Top Adventure (TTA) offers exciting rides that can be a great bonding experience for the entire family and group of friends.

I am not among the bravest children growing up. You can’t expect me to try the most extreme rides in a theme park. But traveling has exposed to a lot of heart-pounding activities like parasailing and white water rafting. I believed my adventure barometer has already increased significantly (and is continuing steadily, yay!) Just early […]
With the cold weather, tall pine trees and the familiar long and winding road, nostalgia suddenly struck me. It was more than a decade since I last set foot in Baguio. With the scorching Manila summer heat reaching as hot as 37 degrees Celsius, fleeing to the City of Pines is a total retreat for […]
Día del Libro (World Book Day) was held last April 23, 2016 at Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati City from 11AM to 11PM. Brought to the Philippines by Instituto Cervantes in 2006, it is a tradition that started in Spain where women and men exchange books and roses. It was my first time to attend […]
