    #BaeTravels: Banaue Trip Day 3

    Hi, guys! I know I am already so behind on my Banaue blog posts, so let me make it up to you by writing this 3rd volume out of the 5. We spent five days in Banaue, so naturally, I would be writing 5 blog posts as well. On our third day, we woke up to the sun shining brightly at us, we had a hearty breakfast (mom’s choice), and then we went to Sagada for a quick trip. Ready for Day 3? Let’s go!

    Bae Explores Manila Ep.1 • Binondo | Escolta | Quiapo ??

    My readers know how much I love exploring Manila. I’ve been to a lot of the famous spots and museums already (even secret ones), but for you, I will do it again! I have a number of blog posts up on my blog but to know how it really feels to live in Manila and embrace its culture, I took it upon myself to create Manila Exploration vlogs. This is so you’ll know how it feels to be in Manila, to ride her public transportations, to eat her food, to walk her streets, etc. For my first episode, I went to Binondo, Escolta, and Quiapo, and may have shed a…

    My Tarucan Travel (April 5, 2015)

    Humble. Honest. Simple.  These are the ways I can describe my very first Tarucan experience last Sunday, April 5. I say first because I believe that it won’t be my last. Instead of egg-hunting and enjoying sweet treats, we set aside the usual Easter Sunday frenzy and went out of our comfort zone for one whole day. Naturally, it wasn’t the easiest trip but I wouldn’t say it was death-defying. More so, it was refreshing to be in a different place and see things with a different perspective. It felt surreal to be in a poverty-filled place. The aeta community is a poor one but the people in it are…

    Baguio City | Day 2

    March 22, 2015 The next day, I woke up pretty earlier than everyone else and the first thing I did was wake up my mother and greet her a happy birthday. Everyone else was still asleep so I opted to check my social media accounts first before to start my day, then I took a shower and accompanied mom for breakfast in the hotel restaurant, Hill Station. There were six of us but only 2 free breakfast meals were given. Mom had the filipino breakfast while I had the country breakfast. I wasn’t able to take a photo of my plate (I know, always, always bring your phone with you)…

    When in Baguio City

    Last Saturday, March 21, my family and I went to Baguio City to celebrate mom’s 50th birthday. She just came back from Cebu for work and she’s been gone for two weeks. They were required to work from 8 pm to 8 am since they were working with a call center client. It was the perfect time for her to unwind. And I could also use a little nature-break myself. We left at 9 in the morning. Prior to our departure, I woke up really early, at 5 o’clock am to be exact, prepared my stuff and showered. By 6 am, I was already up and about but my family…
