La Union Trip: One of My Dirt Cheap Trips

La Union Trip: One of My Dirt Cheap Trips

Ilocos Region, Luzon
So, I remember promising Garry to update my posts. Fortunately after more than a month, here is my second installment to all my blabber-ies about my trips. Before the end of the year last year, while we were hunting for nice deals to travel within the Phils., we came to realize that we planned a little more than usual, thus the hashtags #TanNaNaman & #WOWPhils2012 were coined. Come February, there was really not a planned vacation because me and my friends (I call them my Proserphine Moisture cluster) just went to Bohol on the last  few days of January.  But the 20th of feb is a working Holiday for me and my office friends. It was the (US) President's Day/Washington's Day. Since I have no "ganap/gala" on the weekend, it crossed my mind that it was gonna be a long staycation w

BORACAY please, not Bora! – April 2012

Visayas, Western Visayas
What’s the most popular Summer destination in the Philippines? Say Hi to Boracay! I spent 3D/2N vacation there with my loved ones to splash ourselves in the beach and the white sand. Date of  visit: April 22-24, 2012 Hotel Accommodation: La Carmela de Boracay Airline: Zest Air via Kalibo Airport   Day 1: Summer Laughs We availed online vouchers that offer a hotel accommodation with free breakfast and an airfare for 3D/2N with a promo price. We grabbed it since it’s a good pay for a visit in a Peak season and less hassle for us.   The bad thing was we got an afternoon flight going Kalibo and a morning flight going back to Manila. So it’s like we’ll be staying for 2 days all in all. Nevertheless, that made our days in Boracay well spent. After a

Nature-filled Adventure at its BEST--blue crystal clear water, white sand; a very relaxing place. Say hello to Caramoan!     Actually, it was my friend’s idea to go to Caramoan in Camarines Sur which at that time, I have no idea about it. No relatives or even friends I have known who already visited the islands. So I took time to research all over the internet how it looks like and I must say, I am very excited to discover Caramoan! I will be sharing surprises I got during this trip. Since we wanted to have a hassle-free trip, we availed a tour package and I’m thankful to my friend Dei because she coordinated everything to the tour operator. The three of us, my friends and I, gathered ourselves in Trinoma for our van to pick us up at 9pm. Mang Rueben, our driver, told us

I'd like to start this post with a one-word preamble: Waterproof. I'll explain further below:).   We are one of the privileged corporate rats to have fixed weekend rest days. Considering that, plus the fact that holy week is the most coveted season for a lot, I mean REALLY A LOT of people in the metro and all over to go on a vacation (being that it's usually a long weekend), we wanted a vacay without having to elbow our way through people with the same purpose and being part of what's already over-rated: the crowded resorts and usual places for vacation.  It was an Overnight stay. Not so bad. It was actually better than some people can get. With only the web  as our source for info and contact we were able to come up with a firm plan of going on a trip. The Destination? N
