Summer at Aquaria Beach Resort

The Entrance at Aquaria Beach Resort

As I was packing up to check out from the hotel I stayed over the weekend when a message popped out on my phone asking me if I’m available the next day to an out-of-town getaway to Batangas. I love the beach and so I immediately agreed to it. The weather is really getting warmer and having missed the pool on my staycation, I’m looking forward to start summer at Aquaria Beach Resort in Calatagan, Batangas. So on a Monday morning, I braved the MRT shuffle to get to our meetup point in Makati. I’m glad I did. Read up to know why. It was raining in the city but I’m not concerned at all. I know I’m going to enjoy the beach, rain or shine. But the sun smiled on us and gave us a good weather. Upon arrival at Aquaria Beach, we were greeted with a cold towel and a bottle ...

Momarco Resort and Hotel

At a time when I feel so stressed and wishing for a different environment, my phone came ringing one Friday afternoon to an invite for a staycation.

Vamos A Malolos – Tracing the Roots of Philippine Republic

Vamos A Malolos. In English, it means “Le’ts go to Malolos” and so I did on the 15th of December, a rainy Monday, along with the rest of the invited media representatives. While on the bus, I was given an introduction of Malolos through the brochure that was distributed to everyone, and through a movie about the women of Malolos playing on DVD as we traverse NLEX. In between, our tour guide would inject information reinforcing what I was just reading, and/or watching. Not to say that I dislike history, it’s just that those bits and pieces I learned in school was somehow lost in my memory. But suddenly, I began to appreciate the stories and history unfolding in my mind. My interest in Malolos grew as we approach our destination. Malolos has a huge part of the Philippine history. During the Spanish colonization, residents participated in the revolution. The ...

Sky Ranch Pampanga Amusement Park Now Open

Sky Ranch Pampanga Ferris Wheel

Sky Ranch Pampanga Amusement Park is now open to the public. I was able to cover the media launch on the last week of November and was able to experience first hand how fun it could be for the whole family. If my memory serves me right, this is the 2nd Sky Ranch amusement park in the country, the first being the one in Tagaytay. I’ve only passed by it the few times I’ve been to the area and never had the chance to explore it. So the invitation to Pampanga was a welcome opportunity. Sky Ranch Pampanga is just beside SM City Pampanga. We left Quezon City after lunch and was at the venue in a little over an hour. We waited for the blessing for the entire theme park to open. After all formalities, we were able to roam the entire place. The theme park in Pampanga is ...

My First Island Cove Experience

Because I’ve been very busy working, I haven’t had the chance to take an out-of-town trip for the past 6 months. So when I received an invite to visit Island Cove in Cavite, I immediately said “Yes.” After all, the set date was a weekend and that’s very ideal for me as I can barely take a time off from work. I was looking forward to having my first Island Cove experience, until I was informed it had to be postponed due to an emergency. That was a bummer as I was so in the mood to have a break. It was a good thing that the trip eventually pushed through on October 4th. Yep, that was almost 3 weeks ago and I’m only having the chance to blog about it now. Sorry about that. As I said, I’m really busy. Too busy that I can wrap my mind into ...

On Top of The World at Mount Cabuyao in Benguet

At Mount Cabuyao, Benguet

I felt I was on top of the world when I was at Mount Cabuyao in Benguet. While we were in Baguio City, we took ride to the top of the mountain where the radars and telco cellsites were installed. It was a steep climb. We’re just lucky we were on a van courtesy of Azalea Residences and that the roads to the mountaintop is already paved with concrete. On our way up, we passed by some tourists climbing Mount Cabuyao on foot. Had we done that, I’m sure we would have missed our other activities in Baguio that day, including the SLU Lantern Parade and Christmas lighting. We took a short walk to get to the viewing deck. Overlooking the city of Baguio and other mountain peaks, with the cold gust of wind, it was an awesome experience.  We took another ride to reach the second peak of Mount ...
