September Getaway

I know I’ve been M.I.A. for quite a while. I went on a much-deserved September getaway with my family. These were some of the sights that welcomed our senses. Any guesses where we’ve been? 🙂 My old blog post should give you an idea. I’m excited to share my travel stories but that will have to … Continue reading

Bike Diaries: Road to UP

Over the long weekend, I challenged myself to bike to a farther distance from last time. Part of me was frightened to venture out into the streets again, with all those vehicles criss-crossing my path but my husband told me to trust him, so I did. This was me with my full gear on. Leaving … Continue reading

Ilocos Trip – Part 4

Okay I know this is long overdue. This is the last installment of my Ilocos trip series. After the Malacanang of the North, our next destination was the Marcos Museum in Batac. These are Imelda’s Ternos on exhibit. The Terno is a Philippine traditional gown or dress that is worn during formal occasions. And some of … Continue reading

Pinch me I must be dreaming

Recently, Martine or popularly known as Dainty Mom held a contest in her blog. The prize was nothing short of amazing. At stake was a 3D 2N vacation in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Check out the screen cap below borrowed from her blog post. I’ve never set foot in Palawan and it is one of those destinations that … Continue reading

Ilocos Trip – Part 3

Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend! 🙂 This is part 3 of our Ilocos Norte adventure. Incase you missed the first two posts, you can read about those here and here. Looks like there’s a part 4 coming up. To jam all the remaining photos in this one post would be ridiculous. With our tummies … Continue reading

Ilocos Trip – Part 2

Here’s the continuation of the Ilocos Norte vacation post. After Day 1 (the highlights of which I’ve posted here), we literally collapsed in our beds at the hotel as we were downright exhausted. Little did we know that Day 2 was going to be more action-packed. It was so action-packed that apparently, I need to … Continue reading

Ilocos Trip – Part 1

It’s mid-week and I owe you a post about my amazing weekend. My family escaped the city and headed North. It was an 8 hour road trip but so worth it. We went to Ilocos Norte for the weekend. I’ve come to realize that it’s a province that is rich in culture and heritage, and … Continue reading

Fast Forward to the Weekend

Do you know what it feels like when you’ve just been on a recent vacation, and you suffer from a hang-over that you just can’t shake-off? And it seems like the only possible solution is to get your butt out-of-town for another vacation? Well, I think I’m sort of stuck in that zone right now. And … Continue reading

Tropical Daydreaming

Living in a tropical country, it’s not unusual to find a stretch of coconut trees that spans as far as the eye can see, most especially in the more rural areas of the country. I am particularly fond of them. If I had my way, I would plant coconut trees all over my backyard and … Continue reading

Calm Waters

This was all I needed to see.  For the first time in weeks, I could actually hear myself think. I breathed it all in… The sea breeze, the sun that was setting in the horizon, the gentle sound of the waves. I knew at that moment, it was exactly where I was meant to be. … Continue reading
