Quick Naic Tour

Image
Naic is one of those towns in Cavite leading to Nasugbu, Batangas - a beach paradise in South Luzon. A quick digging and we'll all find out that Naic is a historic town that played a major role during the Philippine revolution. I'm not gonna bore you with that for now. Stay here for a little, you'll see that Naic is quite a gastronomic town with lots of locally run business that offers FOOD! We live in Tanza but I find it more convenient to travel (by commute) from our place to Naic downtown than in Tanza. Well, it's chaos in Tanza - in Naic standards. besides, all the shops and restaurants in Naic are just walking distance from each other. In Tanza, you are stuck in Puregold ewww.  I'm not here to bash Tanza, it's my town at the end of the day.  Whenever we want to relax and just see the world, we commute to Naic and dine in one of its coffee/tea shops - then we'll stroll Stadium mall for a quick find. This time we decided to move further and visit the old

Hello Blog, I Miss You

This pandemic has gotten us all. Whether infected or not, the virus made our 2020 a memorable one with a chance to extend up to 2021. For me, the pandemic shattered my travel plans thus this blog has been silent for months - I'm so sorry. I was browsing my Google Photos, it tells me that my last getaway with friends was last 2019! I'm sure I'm not alone. That was the work of this pandemic in all of us. We stopped as if the world has to pause to contemplate how it works and how it treats its environment.

The Food and Drink I Had in Penang and other Travel Stories

If you are a student of history and culture, there is a high probability that Penang Island came across your readings. For me, it was a word of mouth that landed me to several webpages and books about Penang. Food and cross-cultural diversity are the common themes of my readings about Penang. True enough, Penang is so rich in culture and history and you'll notice that through their food, streets, buildings, and through the common people walking on the streets of Penang.  One of the best things in Penang is its Coffee Culture. Coffee shops are everywhere! This one here is The Daily Dose Cafe in Muntri Sreet. In this article, I will show you the food and drink I had in Penang + my story about it. I spend 8 days in Penang, Malaysia during my 2019 Christmas Holidays break. So I ate a lot but I will show you only the food and drink that I like the most. 

Calauit Safari Tour | Coron, Palawan

The closest encounter I had with a wild animal was in a zoo 10-15 years ago. I’m not really a fan of doing safari tours - I’m not sure if PETA or animal rights advocate will loud me for that. But during our tour in Coron, seeing animals in the wild and feeding them seems interesting for us.

Chances are you either went to Singapore enjoying the most famous attraction or is in the process of building your itinerary for your next Southeast Asian Trip. Here’s the thing, the City of the Merlion can be too expensive or budget-friendly depending on where you will go and how you will spend your money.  Let me enumerate the places where I did spend a single SGD for entrance fees just to see the best of Singapore.  First on my list is the newest attraction in Singapore that cost SGD1.7Billion. All tourist today talks about the Jewel Changi and its Rain Vortex. I myself was a victim of this craze. I had to check JetStar cheap flight deals to Singapore from Manila just to see this another manmade forest and a mall in one.
