Tagaytay City

I have been in Tagaytay several times. Usually it is one of the common choices for field trips for schools in Manila since it is only a couple of hours away. If you are planning a weekend get-away or a roadtrip that is not too far, then Tagaytay is your best choice. It is located […]

I have not been to Tagaytay City yet but it is definitely one place that I want to visit in the Philippines.

Beautiful Coron

It was a quiet afternoon. I was typing away through reports and replying to tons of emails. Suddenly my work mate, which is also my “unnie”, told me that seats to Coron is on sale. Coron; pristine waters and green specked lime stones. That Coron! I was unsure if I can go because of the […]

Paco Park in Manila

I’ve been wanting to visit Paco Park for a very long time now and I finally got the chance to go there. After a quick lunch at SM City Manila, I decided to take a leisurely walk to the Park with the help of Google Maps. It was a 15-20 minute walk along small roads. […]


Beautiful cave in the Philippines

We somehow managed to make it up on time and got ourselves to the airport. We weren’t having much luck with flights as this one was delayed as well. As we were walking through security I heard “excuse me miss” as the security man was signalling for me to come over and collect my bag. Oh god […]

Mention a long weekend getaway on a beach resort island and places like Phuket, Langkawi or Bali comes to mind usually. These are all time favourites of Singaporeans and many other tourists. However, there is another island getaway that is within reach of our Little Red Dot and although it is well known, it doesn’t usually […]

Camiguin Island

(This article should have been posted a month ago but due to an unfortunate restoration of my phone to its factory setting, most of the photos and videos I had when we were in Camiguin got erased. *cries* Good thing I was able to back up some photos elsewhere) Camiguin, an island well known for […]

San Pablo is a first class city in the southern portion of Laguna province, Philippines, and is one of the country’s oldest cities. My feet were itching to go on an adventure one weekend, so I decided to go for an overnight visit. Here’s everything I did during the trip which I took last April […]

Sagada Photowalk — Kwentong JBS

Some two years ago I was with a group of friends, determined to witness Panagapoy Festival in Sagada, Mountain Province. It’s Ifugao’s unique way of remembering their departed family members. They don’t just light candles for them but instead set a bonfire. I remember that we had a bit of difficulty on looking for a […]

Visiting Bohol

The Philippines is my home country. I was born and raised in this beautiful archipelago (sense the bias?) Last summer, my family and I went to Bohol. We went to a lot of tourist spots like the famous Chocolate Hills, Man-made Forest, and Alona Beach (pictures below!) This beach is one of the most photogenic places […]
