You might think that you are reading a post on how I quit my job and then travel the world. Well, this is not it.

If you still want to read, here’s what happened.Why I quit my jobIt was because of my career growth….. JUST KIDDING!Two years ago, while still training for the job, a manager told us that a career is different from a job. He asked us if it was…

diy-guide-to-sugba-lagoon

The first time I visited Siargao, all I wanted to do was to surf since it is the surfing capital of the Philippines. It turned out that the island offered (and still can offer) more than its well-known waves from the pacific. Me and my friends stayed only for four days and it was a good trip. However, it was not enough.Recently, I visited Siargao Island with my boyfriend and we intended to stay longer so we opted for a 9 days trip.One of the things I want to try in Siargao is to visit Sugba Lagoon…

One of the good parts about traveling is that I can meet a lot of people. Whether I’m the tourist or I’m the local; It connects us to one thing, travel. When we went to Hong Kong a few months ago, we met a local named Monique who went with us touring Hong Kong’s temples. She even took a day off just to take us to their tourist attractions and we tried their favorite desserts. It was one of the highlights of our travel. I believe that the people of a certain place makes my travel more…

They also use charcoal to cook their food to avoid consuming petroleum gas.The idea came up when the owner and also the chef of the Chois Grillhouse’s mom got ill. He advised his mom to eat healthy foods for fast recovery. From that incident he decided to establish and make healthy foods for…

I don’t search a lot about the must try foods in a specific place, but I realized that food is also an adventure every curious mind should take. It says a lot about one’s culture and I want to experience and discover that in my travels.I might not be a foodie, but like everyone else I also enjoy food! We all know we can’t really say no to food and that’s why for me, food is also something to be explored when visiting a specific place.Travel gives me an opportunity to try things I…

exploring-carnaza-island-php1000

It was almost a month of unemployment and all I did was watch Netflix on weekdays and freedive on weekends. Though I enjoyed (and still enjoying) both, it was not the routine I wanted. To be honest, I do not like routine because routine is lethal.In the last week of August, I got a chance to break that routine and explored the island of Carnaza, located in the northern part of Cebu. From the island you can see the provinces of Cebu, Masbate, Leyte and Biliran. It was the perfect destination! The island was not touristy and it was…

This third Sunday of the month we went on a mission.This is what we do in a Mission Day. We go to an island where we feed and do catechism for almost 400 kids, we have talks for the youth, and we visit the houses of the adults. Also, the island doesn’t have a priest, so we always try our best to bring one and hold a mass on this day. It is a monthly activity that happens every third Sunday of the month. We’ve been doing this Mission in Caubian Island, Lapu-Lapu since 2012.Though…

siquijor-3-days-itinerary

This is a long overdue trip. We’ve been planning to visit Siquijor last year but we did not have the chance to do so. But at last, in the busy month of June where I tried a lot of things for the first time including freediving, visiting this mystical Island was part of the awesome list.In every trip I’m embarking, I always inform my parents where I’m going. I know that they are very supportive in my endeavors and I don’t want them to worry so much. And so, Informing them does not always mean…

el-nido-and-puerto-princesa-in-4-days

Last labor day, me and my family visited Palawan. It was a family vacation and though I was pretty excited about the fact that we will visit the most beautiful island in the world, I was worried. The reason? It was because of the planning part. I already knew that one way or another I will make our itinerary for this vacation. As I told you before, I’m not really good in itineraries, it stresses the hell out of me and though it was (and still is) not my cup of tea, I needed to figure out the ways…
