"Press Play" on Life with FWD Insurance

A lot of factors can make us take a pause on life and put our plans on hold. One example is the pandemic. When the whole world came to an abrupt halt 3 years ago, it also meant putting a stop to a lot of things like school, travelling, outdoor activities, businesses, work, and life in its entirety. But this lost time also resulted in a lot of self-reflection and discoveries-- new passions, new hobbies, new outlook on life, new priorities, new understandings, new perspectives, new strengths. And it's not just the pandemic, factors like budget, responsibilities, time, lost opportunity, fear & uncertainties could contribute to your "list" -- list of businesses you never got to set up, adventures you never had, dreams you never unfolded, plans you never started. But life is short (with the last 3 years as proof) and it's about time we stop pushing things to the back burner, start living the life the way you want. Stop holding back and press play on life!

Kadayawan sa Davao, Day 1 Itinerary: Arrival, Where to Stay, City Tour & Dula sa Kadayawan

I've never been to Davao, and Nico & I have always talked about going there, so when I got invited by Cebu Pacific to cover the Kadayawan Festival 3 weeks ago, I said yes in a heartbeat! It's the anticipation & excitement of visiting a new place and I'm so lucky that on my first time, I was able to visit a lot of places & learned a lot about the history, culture & people of the "Durian Capital of the Philippines". It was also the first time since the pandemic started, that they're doing an offline festival/celebration! Photos & stories below...

Home Away from Home: Tag Resort Coron Palawan Review + Island Hopping Tour

My first ever  Coron, Palawan trip was last December with DOT Mimaropa and it was an amazing experience, didn't think I'd go back soon-- this time for TAG RESORT Coron! Last August, I went back to this beautiful island paradise with a few PR & content creator friends. I already visited the resort last December, but it was just a quick peek. So when I got invited back by the resort itself, I was super excited! Best part? I get to stay in their luxurious Tadhana villa. Stories & photos below!

Points on the Road, Miles on the Skies with Pilipinas Shell x Philippine Airlines

My ultimate goal in life is to travel and explore as many places as possible in this lifetime. Seeing old and new places, meeting new people, trying different cuisines, and getting immersed in local culture gives me a natural high that nothing else ever can. Seeing the majestic Angkor Wat for the first time, living in Boracay for a short while and seeing its beautiful sunset everyday, eating fresh sushi at Tsukiji market in Japan, reliving my favorite K-drama scenes in Korea, drinking hot tea at Jiufen, Taiwan, and many more make my heart skip a beat and my soul feeling full. Something as simple as road trips are included too! A relaxing ride to Tagaytay for lunch and coffee, listening to my favorite songs while cruising on the freeway (aka NLEX or SLEX haha), and then making a stopover along the way to stretch and eat! My favorite would always be our SHELL stopovers because of the wide variety of items at Shell Select and the food selections. 

Speaking of which, did you know that being on the road can also take you to the skies? You can earn Shell Go+ points every time you gas-up, purchase lubricants, or buy any products in Shell Select and convert into Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Miles!

Max Mara's New Collection Pays Homage to Modernist Magic

Max Mara pays homage to a creative polymath whose oeuvre was overlooked for decades and is now rediscovered. Architect, dancer, textile designer, painter and sculptor, Sophie Taeuber-Arp was that rare thing; a modernist who invested even the most everyday objects with a sense of magic and mystery.

At Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, Taeuber-Arp and fellow artists of the avant-garde including Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Giorgio de Chirico, Max Ernst and Guillaume Apollinaire met nightly. Their performances, publications, recitals and readings played out an astonishing new aesthetic: Dada.
