Travel Arsenal: Must Bring Items
Traveling light and efficiently is a skill that a lot of people, including myself, still needs to master. But I also noticed when we do travel, we tend to focus on the trivial matters, such as what are we going to wear. Between the panic and chaos, we tend to forget the little things that has utmost importance.
So, let’s start with the basics. Here are the top five (5) items that we should always bring whenever we travel.
Greetings from Dubai! I’m not entirely sure if I’ve already landed to Milan/Malpensa Airport by the time this entry has been posted, but hello from wherever I am! I’m currently using my mom’s hotspot to connect (the airport’s free Internet is unstable, what a disappointment!), so let me take this opportunity to make a quick blog post about Corregidor.
So, last April 29 (exactly a month ago, apparently!), my little sister and her classmates went on a school field trip to Corregidor, an island of historical value. Since I’ve been begging my family that we should visit Corregidor, we took this chance to chaperone the kiddos.
For those who are not familiar with Corregidor, it is an island 48 kms. west of Manila, and situated at the entrance of Manila Bay. Because of it strategic location, it served as a focal point for the naval defenses of the capital. The island played an important part during World War II, during the invasion and liberation of the Philippines from the Japanese forces. I wish I can tell you more but I’m not really familiar with my country’s history, except for the fact that Ferdinand Magellan discovered the Philippines and both Rizal and Gomburza died. But if you’re thinking of going to Corregidor soon and YOU SHOULD, then the tour guides there should be able to brief you a piece of history.

Pico de Loro Adventure
While most people flocked the pristine beach of Boracay on Labor Day, Cariza and I went on a spontaneous roadtrip adventure to Nasugbu, Batangas to relax at Pico De Loro. I’ve never been to Pico before, so I have no idea what to expect but I assumed it’s a great place to getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city life.
As usual, let the photos do the ~talking~
I seek adventure in unlikely places
I’ve come to appreciate the beauty of the Philippines. So take that road trip, book that flight and find adventure in your own country.

El Nido Travelogue
Every wanderlust has their own lifestyle and preference, so you either fall in love with El Nido or with Boracay. And in my opinion, both El Nido and Boracay offer a different kind of relaxation: Boracay is commercialized, while El Nido is more… provincial.
Anyway, we only had two days to enjoy El Nido, so we did not waste any time and booked their two best-selling boat tours: Tour A and Tour C. Here are my thoughts about the tour:
