For those who are also dreaming about visiting Batanes, I highly recommend you read Enzo Lacap's 4 Misconceptions About a Batanes Trip blog post and for sure you'll be amazed to know that it's easy to make your dream vacation in Batanes a reality!
One of my dream travel destinations is Batanes, the northernmost part of the Philippines. After a year since I bought my Skyjet open ticket, I still have to find time to make it there. So for now, while I'm still preparing my itinerary and ticking items on my bucket list, I would like to share this Choose Philippines documentary produced by my good friend Tina Marasigan and her team.
I hope you'll enjoy the Choose Batanes videos as much as I do and let's travel to Batanes!
Are you thinking about blogging? Wondering how and where you should start? Well, I hope this post can help you. If you already have a blog, can you pause and remember the day you were about to start your blog... When you started blogging, did you have any idea what's right and wrong? Along the way, have you ever thought that maybe you've crossed the line? Did you check a blogging manual or read something about it?
Last October 18, 2014 was an afternoon worth remembering because it gave me the opportunity to know more about other bloggers as well as learn from them too especially those who had been in this industry for so long.
While you might think that blogging is all just about writing anything under the sun, I can't help but emphasize the need to follow some basic guidelines especially after listening to the sharing of the professional bloggers. In this case, I summarized what I learned from the invited speakers by coming up with the 10 Commandments for Professional Blogging which I hope you will consider too as you pursue your blogging career.
Ask any person who’s been to Singapore what they love most about the country and the answer will most likely be one of three things: the food, the shopping, or the attractions. While all are valid in their own right, these reasons are only the tip of the iceberg and with my previous trips to SG, I must admit that I'm slowly discovering the rest of the iceberg.
Known as the home of underground shopping malls, Michelin-star and celebrity-chef restaurants, architectural wonders, and some of the first, newest or biggest attractions in the world, Singapore is also a country that offers visitors just as many options after dark as it does when the sun is up. Whether it’s grooving to the beats at one of the many world prestige clubs or downing designer shots and bespoke cocktails at hidden bars, guests will find a vast range of options to keep them coming back for more. Singapore promises a night to remember for friends, couples, and families seeking exciting, meaningful experiences, with a host of remarkable events lined up for the next few months.
Singapore's Entertainment Scene Lights up After Dark
Here are some of upcoming events you shouldn't miss
when you visit Singapore this November to January 2015.
Show producer LA Comedy Live has helped turn Singapore into a viable option for fans of stand-up comedy with its roster of stadium-filling comics and sold-out shows that offer nights of bellyaching laughter while Resorts World Sentosa offers a fantastic line-up of hit shows and musicals for the whole family including the Filipino-produced Priscilla: Queen of the Desert (October 16-26, 2014) and the classic Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story this November 27, 2014 until January 20, 2015.
For party goers, I'm sure you're familiar with ZoukOut. Now on its 14th year, ZoukOut Singapore is one of the most anticipated two-day party in Asia! Happening this December 12-13,2014, this is your chance to party from dusk til dawn and enjoy the world's only sunrise festival at the beach. I know some of my friends visited Singapore in the past years just to attend this dance and music event and they have great feedback about it!
For music in a more intimate setting, catch various local artists such as Jack & Rai, Vandetta, Blues Machine or Goodfellas at live music bars like the Wala Wala Café Bar, Hood Bar & Café or Timbre@The Substation for a truly immersive Singapore experience.
When I first visited Singapore in 2010, locals always mention Clarke Quay for nightlife, bands and booze. Now, as Singapore strengthen its position in the entertainment and party market, I realized that there are plenty of places I should visit aside from Clarke Quay and SkyPark at MBS.
After attending the party hosted by Singapore Tourism Board at 71 Gramercy, I get tips from the locals where we should go for some drinks and gimmick when we are in Singapore.
You can also choose to spend the night sampling creatively delightful cocktails crafted by award-winning mixologists such as Peter Chua of 28 Hong Kong Street, Jeff Ho of Jekyll & Hyde and Ethan Leslie Leong of Maison Ikkoku, or explore the exclusive speakeasies such as the password-protected, The Library; the unassuming basement-level location of B28, and the hidden bar serving unique American craft spirits, The Secret Mermaid. Want to party hundreds of feet in the air? Then head over to one of the city’s wildly popular rooftop bars like Loof, Lantern, or 1-Altitude, which towers over the city at a full 282 meters.
“Whatever kind of entertainment you are in the mood for – be it watching live music concerts or festivals, musicals or plays, or drinking it up at hidden speakeasies – Singapore is a must-visit destination to experience high quality entertainment content,” expressed Mr. Adrian Kong, Area Director, Philippines & Brunei, Singapore Tourism Board. “In particular, we hope Filipinos will get a chance to experience the slew of local and international nightlife offerings and events for a fun-filled vacation,” concluded Mr. Kong.
Teeming with places to explore and experiences to remember, Singapore will bring something new to even the most experienced traveller. So book a ticket, pack your bags, open your mind, and get ready to experience where the world is heading. It just might be your best weekend ever!

There's something about the cold weather that makes me feel so alive at the same time happy and light. I just love the cool breeze swiftly kissing my cheeks as I wander around places where I'm a complete stranger. I can laugh on my own, be crazy and do silly stuff yet still feel safe, comfortable and yes, SELFIE ready too!!!
Winter in South Korea was a dream come true for me. First, because it was a gift to self for finally losing some weight and second, it was an opportunity to immerse and understand different culture. I'll always be a CCUP advocate (Cross Cultural Understanding Promotions). But you know, just like any of my trips, my documentation and album won't be complete without taking selfies! So here are the first 8 of many selfie during my Sole Searching Soul in Seoul South Korea Winter Adventure.
SELFIE IN PANORAMA?! Oh well, I wish I knew this trick even before so that I could have taken many! haha. I think I only "discovered" I can do this trick during my trip in South Korea last January and it took me many takes, move here and there just to take this almost perfect selfie in panorama. HAVE YOU TRIED THIS SELFIE TRICK TOO?
