Boracay Island Trip

Finally, I got to visit Boracay and experienced how to be a bum in this beautiful island! - December 2012
Beach Bumming at Station-2

With Mhilen and Micka

It was my first time to visit the place and unfortunately, I don't have any good quality camera to take high-resolution pictures so, all pictures here are from my phone and from tablet. Boracay is famous for its white fine sands and blue waters. To be honest, this place is much beautiful than Bali - beach wise. The small island is filled with lively people all out to have a good time.
Eary morning at the beach front...
You can find many sand art over the place made by the locals. Take a picture with it and just give donations.
Anyway, if you are looking for something that would be related to history or culture to see in this place like those in Bali, well, you have to forget it as this place is really just for hanging out and unwinding up.
You will notice that there are no person at my back. Kakauwe lang kasi nila! LOL

As a beach bum, I have to say that I like the island as it is lovely and just blue. Though there are a lot of people walking around, you can still feel relaxed. Maybe because people walking around are just relaxed too. :)

The island has three famous stations. Stations 1 to 3. Each station is different. Station 1 has the most expensive hotels and the sand is whiter and really fine. The second station I would say is the busiest. Here you can have your food trips and bar hopping. I would name it as the Entertainment Station. LOL! I have not gone to the third station but they say the sand in there is not as fine as the 2 stations. No idea how it look like. Hahaha!
You can find a lot of stores in Station-2 and Station-1.
By the way, if you are planning to visit Boracay, you have to try the night life here as this is what the island is also famous for.
I got to experience this but since I am not a fan of loud music, I just stay in a bar where there is just a man singing with a guitar. I got to try the Mojito and joined it with San Mig Light.
For my first time in Boracay, I can recommend it for people who just like to unwind and have a good time. It is a safe place for a vacation. I will definitely go back someday!

Baguio Forest House : Bed and Breakfast

One of the best places to visit and stay while you are in Baguio is this cozy place where you will always feel like it’s Christmas – Baguio Forest House. Fortunately, I was able to experience staying here even for just a night for business matters. Literally, I felt like I’m inside Santa’s house – the color, the ambiance, and the designs!

I must admit, I really love the place and now I understand why most of the people I used to ask of the where-to’s in Baguio always recommend this place.

Ambiance
One of the things I loved during my stay this September 2015 was the ambiance of each place of the house. Every part of the house is a good place to relax and feel comfortable.






The Room
The room is also one of the things I love about this place. I wish I have the same style in our house. Rustic and quaint ! I heard the house is owned by an architect which explains why the design is simply captivating.



The Food
Needless to say, the fact that I took photos of the food before eating is really som…

Must-Do's Whenever You Visit Baguio

Baguio city never loses its charm for me. It is always lovely all year round. Though this Summer Capital City of the Philippines you see now does not come close to how beautiful and breathtaking it was before, I always look forward on going here to enjoy the cold weather and most importantly, to experience the new things it has to offer for me to try and to see.

And because of that, I have created my list of the must-do’s in Baguio City that I have discovered so far. Some might sound ordinary but I hope you find most of it as interesting.
1. Have a lunch or dinner at Good Taste

This place was only recommended by my cousin living in Baguio. If you are looking for good food, this restaurant is just right for you. They serve mainly Filipino dishes. Prices are reasonable. Food quality is average, and serving sizes are more than adequate.

Location: No.8 Lapu Lapu Street, Baguio, Luzon, Philippines (Just nearby Burnham Park)

2. Have a cup of coffee in Cafe by The Ruins This place is a good st…

7 Things I Consider in Travel Photography

Have you noticed how some of the travel photos of other people are exactly the same as what you see on postcards?

Yes, I also have some photos like that! I know it's common to capture those scenic spots; but after all, I realized, my photos are kinda boring. LOL! Not looking like it's originally captured by me.

I'm no expert in terms of photography but below are my recommended things to do when taking travel photos.

1. Make "Out of the Postcard Photography".
This concept has been my goal. Shoot landmarks in a different perspective. Who knows, you might discover something new and make stories about it. It could be that the rear view of the famous landmark resembles a thing no one ever thought of? Make sense?
Don't go traditional.

2. Include local 'signages' in your photos.
In this way, your photo will have a good sense of place.Take a good shot of stores, restaurants with different names, road signs, and anything that is unique in the place.
