Relaxing Tagaytay at Estancia Resort Hotel

Relaxing Tagaytay at Estancia Resort Hotel

Estancia Resort Hotel brings a relaxing Tagaytay in your every visit. With Santorini-inspired villas, unadulterated terrain, delicious food and the beautiful scenery, it’s perfect for a grand family time, a charming business venue, or the venue for your dream wedding. I had a chance for a private tour and I immediately fell in love with the entire resort. It was very timely because of the stressful environment I’ve been several weeks now at work. As a matter of fact, I dream of going back for a staycation. I’ve been to Tagaytay several times, but the visit is always filled with activities. I’m looking forward to relaxing and just letting time fly by me. The clusters of villas patterned after the villages of Greece’s most popular seaside island overlooking Taal lake and volcano is just one of the things I look forward to in my next visit Estancia Resort Hotel. Located ...

The 4th Sillag: Poro Point Festival of Lights

Floating Lights at Sillag 2014

Poro Point’s uplifting festival of lights, the 4th Sillag: Poro Point Festival of Lights will shine anew from April 9 to 12. Tens of thousands of tourists will be flocking to this event which promises additional exciting events that highlights the rich heritage of the warm, hardworking people of La Union. The event is expected to draw an average of 20,000 people per day based on the previous celebration. Foreign tourists are likely to join and witness the four-day festival. A beacon for progress La Union was previously eclipsed by other (and more popular) local tourism events up north especially in Benguet’s Baguio City, Pangasinan’s Dagupan City, and Ilocos Sur’s Vigan City. La Union gradually reinvented itself and was able to exploit the tourism and business potentials especially of its beaches in San Juan endowed with enticing surfing conditions. Soon enough, Sillag came to light. The Sillag Festival is named ...

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 ...

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 ...
