Blue Mountains National Park

It’s a good thing my aunt and her hubby asked us to stay for a few days at their home in Rooty Hill. It’s a few minutes drive to Australia’s famous Blue Mountains. The most perfect day trip experience if you’re Sydney-bound.   This rugged region west of Sydney has attracted a lot of local… Continue reading Blue Mountains National Park

Are you craving for scrumptious lechon while in Cebu? Then consider this a heads up: try dining at Rico’s.

Aurora’s Millennium Tree

I know I’m blogging this part of my Aurora travel adventure a bit late. The truth is I nearly forgot this was even part of our itinerary when we spent our time here last Holy Week!

Getting stuck at Chibo Okonomiyaki and loving it

  It’s always a great idea to spend the time dining at a restaurant inside a mall while waiting for the heavy downpour of rain to stop outside the walls. Why not, especially if the place is located inside the posh S Maison retail complex in Conrad, the newest hotel that opened at the Mall of… Continue reading Getting stuck at Chibo Okonomiyaki and loving it

Lakbay Baguio: Café in the Sky and Sitio “La Presa”

I celebrated Father’s Day (sans my Dad who passed away in 2005) in Baguio’s famed Café in the Sky and Sitio La Presa. Actually it’s not part of Baguio City, but of Mt. Santo Tomas, in Tuba, Benguet. Living here for a few days, away from a hectic schedule and city buzz, makes one feel… Continue reading Lakbay Baguio: Café in the Sky and Sitio “La Presa”

Three Days of Trekking in Baler

My legs were burning by the time we were about to board the bus back to Manila. I didn’t know that trekking activities would dominate the most part of our 4-day itinerary in Baler, Aurora. I’ve heard it’s a perfect exercise but I really don’t like climbing. Had I known it, I would have prepped myself first but… Continue reading Three Days of Trekking in Baler

Lakbay Baguio: Mines View Park in a hurry

I was a young girl back then, around 8 or 9 years old, standing at the side of the ridge watching some tourists throw loose change down the ravine where young agile children are waiting with cups they use to catch loose… Continue reading Lakbay Baguio: Mines View Park in a hurry
