Denice, Aubrey and Bing, feat. Jhulz. . We changed the plans and hardly followed the itinerary. Upon reaching every destination, for a split second, we decided “extend!!!”.

“Music saves the soul.” Play it first. . 🙂 I’ve known Rachel to be a restless traveler who, like me, worships the beach while embraces the pricking rays of the sun as if this combo is the best thing God has ever created.

“Music saves the soul.” Play it first. . 🙂 Valentine’s Day is only for cheesy couples.

And there I was, letting my family experience the inexplicable euphoria I get when I see places I’ve never been.

It was a year after the Underground River got all the fame it deserved when this … More A Paradise in the Philippines – Puerto Princesa, Palawan
It was during the Christmas holidays a couple of years ago when I and my family had a vacation in Baguio City for almost a week. I think this is the very first family vacation I had that’s more than 3 hours-drive away from home. Haha. .
After the make-your-crotch-sweat trekking at Mount Pinatubo, the ladies including myself went to Olongapo to spend the night somewhere as we have a big beach adventure the next day (as they promised me, bwahaha!).
Myrna, Aubrey and I, amazingly, have one common love – a serene beach. We prefer those unspoiled ones without hotels and restaurants where only a few people are sun bathing, than the beach which thousands of people visit to brag their 6-pack abs and bikini bodies. We have this common hobby to search for low … More Our Dearest Unspoiled Beach in Calatagan – Burot Beach

Since we already visited Patar Beach in Bolinao, Pangasinan, we don’t wanna miss the chance to see the famous Hundred Islands National Park in Alaminos, Pangasinan. The park, with 124 islands bragging its white sand beaches, blue clear waters, amazing rock formations and mushroom-like shaped islets, is so awesome;
if you’re looking for a place to go on a vacation this summer, but would want to avoid the huge crowd bathing under the sun, i highly recommend the beaches in Pangasinan. . one of my ever favorite is the Patar Beach in the town of Bolinao.
one of the most awaited celebrations in the Philipines is the extravagant Pahiyas Festival in the town of Lucban, Quezon Province. the colorful thanksgiving is held every month of May in honor of the patron saint of the farmers, San Isidro Labrador.
my highschool girlfriends, all five of us, seldom have this bonding moment after graduation wherein all are present, worse when we were already working as we sometimes work on different shifts. so i decided to call them up; told them about this big announcement i can only tell at the beach on this particular day and only to … More When One Lies, The Group Goes to the Beach – Stilts, Calatagan, Batangas, Philippines
