The first of many, Hong Kong Trip

12 hours before our flight, I realized I did something stupid. Like really really stupid. When I was checking all my documents, I noticed that I booked the wrong flight! No wonder I didn’t receive my e-boarding pass 2 days before. The horror! And since I do not own a credit card (decided to cut it 2 years ago) I immediately called a friend and asked her to book me a new flight. Thank heavens I got a ticket in Tiger Airways and it was worth 5,470 feysus! My most expensive one way ticket to date. #shithappens

You Think You Know Skiing—But You Haven’t Tried It With A Helicopter Yet

Downhill skiing is a standard outdoor pastime for many adventurous sport fans. It’s a fun and exciting way to explore the great outdoors, but for some thrill-seeking adventurers, it runs the risk of becoming just the ‘same old.’ For those explorers who are bored with the status quo, heli skiing is the natural step. Heli skiing is a shot of adrenaline into the heart of skiing, creating an exhilarating and incomparable experience.

But what is it? As its name suggests, heli skiing involves travelling by helicopter to remote alpine regions—areas of the world where the best, untouched terrains are just waiting for you and your friends to lay claim and race down their peaks.  Since its inception forty years ago, the mountain ranges of British Columbia have become a favourite spot for heli skiing enthusiasts. With over twenty heli skiing spots scattered across the province, it is the heli skiing capital of the world. Northern British Columbia is especially preferred because of its remote and immense landscapes. The virgin snow found on these peaks, maintained by cool temperatures and consistent snowfalls, create epic descents unlike anything you could find at a ski resort.

Heli skiing trades in the old manufactured slopes found at these resorts for the deep powders and untracked terrain of the great outdoors. The breathtaking views that these remote locations afford you are just an added bonus. Check out http://canadianheli-skiing.com/gch-experience/small-groups/ to see what kind of small group vacation packages are available for those of you who want to leave the boring ski resorts behind. With only the pilot and guide and up to four skiers in each group, you are truly secluded—you never have to worry about sharing the ski hills with annoying crowds that could ruin your vacation. The rough terrain and powder snow are entirely yours. Due to the limited number of people skiing, heli skiing is a personal and tailored experience for you and your friends. Your vacation is entirely customizable, creating a truly different and unforgettable holiday.

The best heli skiing companies will rarely postpone trips due to weather, offering flights to these locales almost every day of the year. Depending on your schedule and skill level, you can plan for up to six full days of unlimited skiing in the world’s most beautiful locations. So if you’re searching for an exciting way to vary your next skiing adventure, then heli skiing, with its amazing views, customizable packages, and challenging slopes, is for you.

Where to Stay in Melaka: Tidur-Tidur Guesthouse

In Malay, Tidur means sleep.

A T-shirt store upfront and a guesthouse running at the back, that describes Tidur-Tidur Guesthouse the best. Owned by a local designer (whom we get to meet personally during our stay) is doing a one man show running his two businesses. Strategically located at the heart of Melaka, the guesthouse is close to all the tourist attractions and local eateries. Plus at the back is the Malacca River, pleasing views, especially at sunset 🙂

Oh hey!

It’s been almost a year since this blog has been active. Last year was a bit of a roller coaster ride. I didn’t get to retrieve our domain, I’ve experienced a so -called writer’s block, became uninspired and a lot of random excuses that made me neglect this blog. It feels like I don’t have anything to write but in reality there are actually a lot. A long list of backlogs and trips that I haven’t write yet. Trust me there are times I tried to write but nothing happened 😦 And before I rant about other things, shall we now move on and try to finish this blog post?


So right now I’m currently revamping this blog. I just finished transferring some of my posts from my previous blog (but I still need to re-edit them) and trying to make blogging a habit again. Also, my friend Abee is now helping me to run this blog. She also loves to travel and is crazy about make-up and fashion. We’ve brainstorming a lot on how we’ll incorporate her ideas in here. We’ll see what will happen haha!

It’s 3:oo PM, still haven’t eaten my lunch with a non-stop playlist of “brain music” in the background I may have some commitment issues but I’ll try my best to post something new (or a backlog) at least once a week starting next week. *fingers-crossed*

Shout out to those people who told me to continue this blog. I love you and thank you for all the support 🙂 #lablablab 😉

Where to Stay in Lingayen, Pangasinan: The President Hotel

PRESIDENT HOTEL (12) <a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12948777/?claim=77sg6xv9y5r”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> Travelling to the province, especially on a Friday night is not a joke. Alongside with my friend, Mai of Budget Biyahera. We traveled from Cubao to Lingayen for a solid 6 freaking hours! And all throughout the trip we thought about how can we teleport in our hotel bed. The President Hotel, our home for 2 nights is strategically located along Maramba Boulevard in Lingayen, Pangasinan. The hotel is also considered as one of the historical spots in the city because the house of the 12th Philippine President, Fidel V. Ramos once stood there. Continue reading

7 Selfies in the 7 Lakes of San Pablo, City Laguna

Now that I live in Quezon City, travelling to the South is not a big deal for me anymore. San Pablo City, Laguna, just a 2-hour drive or bus ride away from Manila, boasts its different attractions bursting with culture and heritage. Their local delicacies, guided nature-treks and lake tours are something to look forward to.

Last weekend, me and my future Thailand travel buddies decided to explore the city’s main attraction: The San Pablo Seven Lakes. Because I didn’t have the luxury of time to research the area, #minsantamad we relied on our printed Google map and kept bugging the locals we see in the streets to ask for directions.

Dubbed as one of a kind in the Philippines, and probably the world, the seven lakes of San Pablo City was formed by phreatomagmatic eruptions, an eruption where ground water comes in contact with hot magma pushing up near the Earth’s surface.* Aside from the beauty that the lakes possess, the lakes also provide livelihood to the locals in terms or fishing and tourism.

Now, let me take a selfie!


It all started as a joke of taking a selfie in each lake. Thus, the idea of this blog post was born.
