Siargao 2017, Day 3-5: Magpupungko Tidal Pools & Island Hopping

Here's part 2 of my unexpected Siargao getaway December of last year! As I said in my first post, I was invited by Cebu Pacific to experience their first ever direct flight from Manila to the beautiful island of Siargao. We spent our first 2 days exploring, immersing ourselves in local culture, reveling in the island's relaxed vibe and basking in the beauty of the whole place. Here are photos and stories during our last 3 days in Siargao...


Siargao 2017, Day 1 & 2: Cebu Pacific's First Direct Flight, Patrick's On The Beach, Cloud 9

I honestly thought that my Korea trip last November would be my last travel last 2017. I was ready to rest my itchy feet & wandering soul and just eagerly wait for January to come (Asia trip! woots) when I suddenly got a message from Cebu Pacific asking me if I want to be part  of their very first direct flight from Manila to Siargao. A few days before I got the invite, Nico and I randomly talked about our plans to visit the island. We even agreed to book a flight early next year. Destiny na to! So I asked Nico to go with me since it was not a media trip and we've been talking about how much we wanted to go there together. It was both our first time! The MNL-Siargao maiden flight was December 17, a few days before Christmas and during one of the busiest time of the year. But after thinking about it for about 5 minutes, I said yes. Basta travel, YES! Haha. So without further ado, here are photos and stories from our quick 5-day adventure at one of the surfing capital of the Philippines, the tranquil and beautiful SIARGAO...


My Year with Uber

I'd be totally honest, I can't live without Uber. I'm sure I share the same sentiment with thousands of Filipino riders around the metro who rely/relied on the app to get them to places. I think it is one of the best things that ever happened to this country. Ever since it was launched, it has helped and saved my life countless of times. I made it to hundreds of meetings, events, family gatherings, survived styling gigs, survived my Dad's hospital days, booked trips for my family and many more because of Uber. I love how it's efficient, convenient and safe. Just what a commuters life or our daily lives should be. Agree? 
This 2017, we’ve seen a lot of new and incredible connections made and special moments experienced as we took on the cities’ roads, meeting all kinds of folks along the way. As a remarkable year comes to a close, Uber has a special year-end treat for you!!!

Cebu Getaway 2017: Luxe Island Life in Bluewater Sumilon

Here's Part 2 of Nico's Birthday Celebration in Cebu last October! As I said in my first post, we spent 2 days in Cebu City before heading to our main destination, Bluewater Resort in Sumilon Island. It was Nico's first time in Cebu so I wanted him to experience a few firsts-- legit Cebu lechon, see Magellan's cross and see the oldest church in the Philippines Sto. Nino Basilica. Achieve! I was super excited for our trip to Sumilon, south of Cebu, because it will also be my first time. Here are photos and stories from our stay at one of the best resorts I have ever been to...
