Love Local, #LoveLaguna: History, Culture, Food, Arts & Shopping!

Laguna is that beautiful place that everyone knows about but is often overlooked & taken for granted-- myself included. I have been there plenty of times but for work, errands, events, or just to visit Enchanted Kingdom & Nuvali. Maybe because it seems to be as urban as nearby Manila so people don't prioritize it when planning their vacation. To be honest, I didn't know there are so much to see and do in Laguna, so our immersive overnight excursion to the province was an eye-opener & truly an experience I won't ever forget! Let me show you why you should add Laguna to your list of places to visit when planning a vacation or a weekend getaway.  Read on to know more...


Puerto Princesa, Palawan Day 1: Arrival, Travel Requirements & Where To Stay

Last month,  I was fortunate enough to be invited again by the Department of Tourism Mimaropa for a media familiarization trip to Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

I Want To Buy a Car: Brand New or Used?

So far,  I've owned 3 cars in this lifetime (2 used, 1 brand new) and I sold every one of them. Haha! My first car was an old school 90's Toyota Corolla which I named "Midnight" 'coz of it's midnight blue color, the 2nd was a used silver Honda Civic (my favorite) which I named "Chloe", and the last one was a brand new gray Toyota Vios which I named "Sasha".

UNIQLO Celebrates 10th Anniversary + UT Pilipinas Launch

There are only a few brands that have consistently been with me in my 10-year journey as a blogger/content creator, and one of them is UNIQLO. Last June 10, I attended their 10th-year anniversary celebration at the Uniqlo Flagship Store in Glorietta and it got me feeling super nostalgic! I can still remember attending Uniqlo events 8-9 years ago, and now they're celebrating a decade of providing Filipinos their everyday clothing needs. Read on to know more...

Adulting 101: To Rent or Buy a Property?

I've been living independently for 12 years, and I have now reached a point in my life where I'm thinking about whether renting a place is more feasible than owning one. I live in a small 2-bedroom in the heart of the city for 8 years now, paying $250 monthly rent (plus utilities), and while I love my humble abode, I keep thinking if I should just apply for a housing loan and pay a monthly mortgage instead. My Mom offered to finance a 2-story townhouse 3 years ago (when we still had money after my dad's retirement) but I declined because of the location. Now I'm regretting my decision. Haha!
