AirAsia in Tacloban: 2-Day Travel Guide + Sangyaw Festival + Ulot River Adventure

I'll be honest, when I was told I'll be flying to Tacloban to witness their Sangyaw Festival, I was ecstatic because I'll be going somewhere I have never been, but I also imagined a place that is gloomy, sad and eerie. Maybe because the image that got stuck in my head (and I'm sure in most of yours too) is the devastating tragedy which happened 5 years ago when typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan destroyed almost 90% of the city. And even before that, the place was never in our list of places to visit or fly to when planning our vacations. I always thought, "Not much to see, not much to do". BUT BOY, WAS I WRONG!!! And during the trip, I kept asking myself this question over and over-- "Why didn't I come sooner?!" Read on to know more...

What You Can Do and All You Can Buy at FISHER MALL + #FisherFashOwnFair

As a Northerner (Jon Snow lang haha), I'm so happy that I have another option when it comes to entertainment, shopping and leisure. I'm so happy to discover that there's a place where I can unwind, relax, shop, run errands and best part? It's just a few minutes away from home! A few days ago, me and my friends checked out Fisher Mall to shop and bond before Ana leaves for her Europe vacay. We all got surprised when we got there! Find out why below...

Thanks to my friends from BT (Hi Denise & Dana) for just sending me my own pair! Will post an OOTD soon! :) Anyway, here are photos and stories from the launch...

Krabi, Thailand 2017: Booking + Arrival via Malaysia

Starting another travel post, now na!!! Woohoo. I did a poll last time which of my past travels you'd like to see next on the blog and most of you answered-- KRABI, Thailand! So here it is, finally!!! Uumpisahan ko na after 1 year. Haha. So much happened after our trip, so I wasn't able to blog about it. I get a few inquiries in my DM every now and then about that trip last year, so I decided to write about it na. :) 

Anyway! The trip was a spontaneous one. Nico has always wanted to go to Maya Bay and Ko Phi Phi islands (ultimate beach boy eh) where his favorite movie "The Beach" was filmed, so when Air Asia had an online big points sale which included Krabi, we quickly grabbed the opportunity! More about our booking and our trip below...

Here are photos and stories from our adventure...

Earn Points & Redeem Flights with AIRASIA's Freedom Flyer Loyalty Programme

Hello, I am Pax and I'm a travel addict. If you're a reader of my blog or if you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen and you'd see how much I love exploring new places and immersing myself in different cultures. I really don't care if it's out of the country or out of town (or kahit a few hours drive lang from Manila), nothing thrills me more than getting lost in an unfamiliar land. Sabi ko nga, I live & work to travel. (my Mom dislikes this HAHA). I am also a self confessed budget (I'd also like to believe, smart???) traveler. My friends, family and readers knows this. I am the type of person who enjoys planning, researching and booking flights, hotels and tours! And one of my best travel hacks, which always result in huge savings, is booking flights--for "FREE"!!! How? Read on to know more...
