Cebu’s Temple of Leah and Sirao Gardens

The only chance I get to visit Cebu is because of work and I have always told myself that I must go back here for non-work related purposes. February rolls in and my boss invited me to attend her wedding in Cebu.Β I went with my colleague and flew in Friday night. The wedding was Saturday,…

Travel Vlog: Thailand

I’ve been blogging about my Thailand trip in my previous posts. I don’t think I can put more emphasis on how much I love this country. For my second time, my friend was taking videos of our trip and I decided to do the same (although I wasn’t as successful as he was since I…

How to Go Around Bangkok

My first visit to Bangkok last February, we got a tour and was there for only two full days and wasn’t able to see much of the place. It was a rushed trip (we booked a week before leaving) and then we had trip problems when we arrived so we were tired and beat after…

Visiting Bangkok’s Old Capital: Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya isΒ the old capital of Thailand but was destroyed but the Burmese during the 18th century. Ruins of the old capital remain and are well-preserved all over the place.

22nd Birthday

It was my birthday last Friday! I decided to take a birthday leave from work due to personal stuff, but I was in the city the whole day. I love celebrating my birthday but I’m not the type who’s big on actual celebrations. I like lowkey stuff like dinners — kinda celebrating it like a…

Thailand Adventure: Part 2

(After three months, here’s Part 2!) So we get to our hotel and the receptionist tells us that there is no room available because the AC is broken. He said he’ll transfer us to a different hotel. Okay, fine. At this point we can’t really be choosy. It’s late, we’re tired, and we have a…

Wild Eats at Wildflour

I learned about Wildflour since last year but only had a chance to dine in there when I started to work. Wildflour is conveniently located behind my office so it’s easy to go to. I haven’t tried all the food they have yet, everyone says the kimchi rice is good but on my first visit…

Thailand Adventure: Part 1

I had a quick weekend getaway in Bangkok last month. It was a bit of a rushed trip! I booked my flight about a week prior to when I planned to leave and I was just there for two days. I went straight to work from my flight. Thailand is my first overseas trip, and…

Planners are really great in keeping your life and schedule organized. In the past few years I would always start writing on my planner and then stop updating it after a few months. However now that things are busier for me, I’ve learned to keep my planner around so I can immediately write in appointments…
