Senti Sabado! I can't help but feel nostalgic after browsing my Facebook videos and saw some of my short video blogs about my ASEAN travel and adventures. Here are some of the things I've done when I was in Luang Prabang, in northern Lao PDR. I hope this will excite you for the formal launching of my travel and lifestyle show on YouTube under Chicken Pork Adobo Network by ABS-CBN.
The old town is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites that's why buses and other vehicles are not allowed in its old streets. Walking is the best way to explore the town but you can always opt go for a bicycle ride!
For as low as 2 USD, you can rent a bike and pedal your way to major streets and alleys as you feast your eye with ancient temples, world heritage sites and rich Lao-French architecture.
Biking in Luang Prabang, Lao PDR
I love biking whenever wherever I can.
It reminds me that I can still keep my balance just as long as I keep going...
EARLY BIRD! I'm not a morning person but whenever I travel, I make it a point to be an early bird so that I can witness how locals live especially in an old town like Luang Prabang... home to the traditional alms giving ceremony.
Wake-up Early to witness the traditional Alms Giving Ceremony
ALMS GIVING CEREMONY
After observing the alms giving ceremony, I decided to walk around town and just enjoy the morning breeze as I stroll in this very quiet place perfect for soul searching. Some of the houses are also filled with though-provoking reminders just like this one... Welcome to Here and Now!
Soul Searching in Luang Prabang
"Everything that you have experience has been necessary to get where you are now. If you think you have been in a better place, stop looking backwards"

"What greatness means to you?" That was a powerful question asked by LG Mobile Philippines to their followers and I accepted the challenge to answer this question through my instavideos. Let my video diary show you what is greatness to me. From people, places, celebrations and special moments, I celebrate a little bit of GREATNESS in everything that I do.
Exactly 40 days ago, I was browsing my Sole Searching Soul Facebook Page when I saw a sponsored post on my newsfeed so I checked what's the buzz on LG Philippines Instagram account.
DAY3: 3 Reasons Why the Instavid below is filled with #Greatness!
I was really amazed by the portrait artists in Tam-Awan Heritage Village like Ate Jen.
They give their best even though they only charge Php 200 for every session. For me their artwork is priceless especially if you have an acclaimed travel photographer/writer as your model!
DAY 11: THAT DAY WHEN I GOT STARSTRUCK WITH BUTANDING!
I fell in love with the whale shark the moment I saw it and it left me breathless after our first interaction in #Donsol! Swimming with the gentle giant is one of my great travel experiences so far! I highly recommend this activity when you are in Sorsogon.
DAY 18: TAKE THE PLUNGE AND ENJOY FALLING!
DAY 20: Reminiscing The Day I Fulfilled One of my Childhood Dreams!
DAY25: SUPPORTING FILIPINO ARTISTS AND TRADITIONAL CRAFTS
I'm also a crafter by heart because I love making handicrafts and expressing myself through arts so I visit Prism Gallery from time to time.
I first met Sir Badz Magsumbol two years ago in Bicol when he was introduced to me by Sir Pancho Piano who is one of the most famous Bicolano artists I know. These two master artists will surely make you proud as a Filipino because of their artworks and advocacy. They use art to make a difference and promote the best of Filipino culture and talent.
DAY33: BEING GREAT MEANS HAVING QUALITY TIME WITH FAMILY
My family is my source of greatness! That's why whenever possible, I go home to Bicol and play with my cute little cousin at the same time bond with the rest of my loved ones. Playtime is also my way of relaxing and sometimes source of unexpected inspiration!
DAY 38: FROM STRANGERS TO FRIENDS OVER A BOTTLE OF SOJU!
I am always thankful for the chance to make new friends especially when I'm on trips here and abroad. We were walking in a random street in DongdaemunMarket when I saw this food tent and asked my travel buddies for us to check it out. I only met Aiza and Justin in South Korea during my winter vacation and they became my friends after travelling together in Seoul.
DAY40: TRAVEL BUDDIES TO GREAT FRIENDS FOR KEEPS!
I am very happy to complete my#40DaysofGreatness Challenge with this instavid of my PAANOD SA LAYAK adventure with my SSEAYP family. They are the amazing people I met when I was selected by the National Youth Commission to be one of the Philippines Ambassador of Goodwill in 2012. Since then, our friendship grows stronger as we make great things happen in our respective fields and advocacies.
I hope I can win one of the LG G4 prizes so that I can take GREAT selfies just like this epic video by Alex which reminds me of my "Magic Palm Selfie" video shot in Baguio City. That's also about the same first time I personally saw greatness in the hand and eyes of Melo Villareal when he used his LGG4 to take travel photos during our After Summer Group Getaway in Azalea Baguio.
Just in case you're wondering "WHY I WANT TO WIN THIS CHALLENGE AND WHAT'S MY MOTIVATION FOR JOINING?" Aside from being a natural storyteller (talkative!) and being obsessed with documenting my trips on YouTube, I also think LGG4 will be a PERFECT BUDDY especially for people like me who is always on the go seeking for greatness!
I see great. I feel great.
Let me know what you think about my #40DaysofGreatness for @lgphilippines.
NO MAN IS AN ISLAND that's why we have our group of friends. It's fun Friday so I thought it this post perfect to make your day a little lighter!
Here's a funny video about the common problems we have experience in our Barkada... in one way or another, for sure you'll be able to relate to this video by Philippine's funny man on YouTube, Lloyd Cadena.
SORRY NA, SELFIE MUNA!!! hahaha :-p
Okay, eto na talaga! Let us know what you think about it and share what's your common Barkada Problem. Leave your comments below!
Check some of the photos from LC's blog post about his newest video BARKADA PROBLEMS.

If you want to get your degree on fear management, I highly suggest you visit the Danao Eco Adventure Park in Bohol. It's approximately 2 hours away from Tagbilaran but the trip is worth it especially if you can dare yourself to take their very famous "Plunge"! Watch this instavid to get an idea what is it all about. :-)

As much as I love taking photos, I also have plenty of velfies (selfie videos) which I took during my trips and random moments. I also love telling stories and sharing my adventures and advocacies that's why I'm very excited for this upcoming collaboration with ABS-CBN through their Chicken Pork Adobo Network. Yes, I'll finally fulfil one of the items in my Ultimate Bucket List... that is to have my own TRAVEL & LIFESTYLE SHOW!
What is Chicken Pork Adobo Network?
“It is the platform where we empower creators who may not have a chance to go on TV. Chicken Pork Adobo democratizes it for everyone by harnessing and gathering all of them, and for them to leverage on each others’ strengths. We want to showcase the Filipino talent to the world, not only to Filipino audiences,” shared by Donald Lim, head of ABS-CBN’s Digital Media Division.
PaChubby Girls having fun for the first time!!!
