Music is always part of my adventures. Whether I'm traveling for few hours or a few days, I need a good music. It gives me the positive vibe that I need every time I travel. Music makes my trip more exciting and more enjoyable.


As one sitting in the white sand or inside a beautiful room, there's nothing like listening to a chill vibe music. This is really fun especially if I'm listening with friends. The best way to share my music with them is by connecting my phone to a good portable speaker. I can tell you, it's more fun to listen music to a speaker. I feel more the sound's beat and the lyrics of the music.

Travelling is not fun when you get sick during your trip. Being sick when you're alone is even worse. It's impossible not to expose yourself to all sorts of weird germs when you travel. You will also experience a sudden change in weather, sleeping in strange places, and eating unfamiliar food. The chances are high that you're going to get sick.

It was dazzling! The Christmas Ceremonial Lighting at The Manor at Camp John Hay was not just pretty lights, it's filled with non stop entertainment (live band and choral music), buffet, fashion show and more!


The premier hotel in Camp John Hay was surrounded with Christmas lights and Christmas icons like snowflakes, penguins, reindeer, and Santa Claus. It's beautiful at night and everyone loves to take selfies and groupies with these lovely Christmas decorations.

Going to Boracay from Kalibo will be more convenient and comfortable with the newest premium class ferry service. It's a revolutionary water transportation that aims to raise the standards of passengers comfort.


Recently, Mabuhay Maritime Express invited me to the launching of 410- seater, high speed catarmans, named MV Malambing and MV Magalang. These two brand new ferries will offer premium class ferry service to the world-famous island of Boracay.

In my recent trip to Kota Kinabalu, I booked a Standard Room via ZEN Rooms. It is a budget-friendly room near KK Waterfront that provides decent facilities as well as great services.


Centrally located in Kota Kinabalu, ZEN Rooms is a perfect choice for budget conscious travellers who are looking for comfortable yet affordable room in KK. It's about 14 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu International Airport and near to restaurants and shopping malls like Center Point Sabah, Star City Mall and Suria Sabah Shopping Mall.

Check-in time for most hotels are usually in the afternoon, around 2PM or 3PM. There are some hotels will let you check in early but most of them are not. If you arrive after the check in time, you will still check out around 11AM or later. You are not really getting the whole day of accommodation that you paid for. 


Recently, I found a hotel in Makati that guarantees 24-hour stay, regardless of what time you check-in. There's no check-in time. No more waiting time. You can get immediately your room key upon arrival any time of the day.

Located in the southern foothills of the scenic Mayon Volcano, Legazpi City is an amazing destination in Albay. It has the tourism tagline the "City of Fun and Adventure", with a number of exciting adventure activities including riding an ATV around Mt. Mayon, skydiving, scuba diving, and several outdoor and water sports. The city also served by the Legazpi Domestic Airport, the region’s busiest airport.


A Legazpi City adventure will not be completed without a visit to the newly-opened SM City Legazpi. It’s an excellent place for shopping and food adventure. You can find here a great selection of restaurants, food stalls, and branded stores. 


One of the must-visit spots in the mall is the Food Hall. You can find here several food stalls like Mr. Kimbob Korean BBQ, Salo, Xinyi Chicken, Potata Corner, Turks, Scrapes, Fruitas (House of Desserts), Bottoms Up, Mexita Pizza, Westside, and Shou (Lamien). Eat your food while you enjoy  the spectacular view of Mayon Volcano. The best time to eat here is in the afternoon like around 3PM-6PM to witness the clear and perfect cone shape of  the volcano.

Travelling to Kota Kinabalu is one of my #travelgoals in 2018. It's been a long time I'm planning to visit to this beautiful destination which is on my bucket list. When I got a chance to file a (work) vacation leave, I immediately checked online to find the cheapest airfare and hotel in KK.


That time, Cebu Pacific was the only airline company that offer the cheapest airfare for Manila to Kota Kinabalu flight. The airfare also from Brunei to Manila was less than 2,000 pesos. I decided to book a one way flight from Manila to Malaysia and a one way flight from Brunei to Manila. The total ticket cost was less than 5,000 pesos without check-in baggage.

During our visit in Davao, we traveled to Baranggay Ilang to visit the relocation housing project, given for over 100 families living in flood-prone areas near the Ilang River in Davao City. It's a joint project of Holcim Philippines, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and, City of Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO).
