Bohol’s Momo Beach House, The Paradise Less Traveled

I do not like sea travel. I, who has lived on an island for 2 decades, who would get out of the sea last and unwillingly during beach trips, get too anxious when I have to travel by sea. My inability to swim, the odd smell of boat gasoline and how I’d feel mildly claustrophobic are primary culprits. When I first said yes to my first ever blog trip out of Cebu, I was beyond ecstatic and grateful. Finally! My…

Staycation in the Sky at The Mactan Newtown

Labor long weekend was fast approaching and I was itching to have a mini-vacation for fear of missing out on summer completely, yet again. I’m not big on road trips (so much anxiety build up) or ship rides (I cannot swim, for the life of me, if things go south, also, ship gasoline smells so bad, don’t you think?), we do not have trains and plane tickets are too expensive for an overnight vacation. Thankfully, millennials invented (ha!) staycations, so I thought,…

Playing Around Asia’s Biggest Inflatable Playground

Summer outings are in season, and we just had ours, yesterday! Now that I remember, I still owe you last year’s in Bellevue, Bohol. But hey, here’s a quick photo-diary of my weekend. Take off! Cebu from thousands of feet up the sky. Touchdown, MNL. After a 4-hour bus ride from NAIA, we arrived at the Inflatable Island in Subic Bay waters via Samba Bluewaters resort.

Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall, Taipei

My last post for Taiwan, ahh! Finally? Finally! A bit bittersweet but this has been postponed for a year and I’m glad we’ve finally reached the end, partly because that means my backlogs are less, now, haha. But more importantly, I’ve shared with you my vibrant experience in Taiwan. It may have not started well, getting lost in the province and welcomed by storm at Yehliu, to non-stop rain for days 2 and 3 but it ended well on our 4th…

Eating Poop at Modern Toilet in Ximending, Taipei

Themed restaurants are big hits in Taiwan. Reviewing our itinerary spreadsheet now, we listed 4 to visit. There’s a Barbie themed restaurant, one for Hello Kitty, one that feels like being in one of the largest planes without actually taking off which is the A380 Sky. Quick side note: I didn’t know about A380 back in March last year until I boarded one in September when I left the UK for Cebu. It’s a two-storey plane! I know! How far…
