Microtel Eagle Ridge

One of the good things about staying in Microtel is that (as I mentioned before), you already know what to expect, and chances are, the experience will live up to your expectations. So what else can I write about this hotel chain?

Cintai Corito’s Garden


I was instantly alert, looking for the noisy cat. As I strained my eyes, trying to look into the bushes in the dark, one of the staff came forward and said, “ma’am, it was the peacocks.”

Microtel Batangas

Three weeks ago, Microtel Batangas invited me and my friends from PHL360 to spend a weekend at their property in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. Seeing as I am feeling the pressure to save all my money for an upcoming trip, I was eager to accept the invitation for a getaway.

This is an advertorial

Ever since I started posting about Greece, I know you’re all antsy to read more about the places we went to. While I’m unable to write the story of our adventures, I was able to list and map out all my favorite places in Athens, Chania, Heraklion, Fira, Perissa, Oia, and Mykonos.

Eleanna's of Mykonos
This is Eleanna’s in Mykonos, one of the best places we stayed at in Greece!

So in all those cities, which places did I like the most? In the short list are:

  1. Acropolis of Athens
  2. Chania’s Old Venetian Harbour
  3. Paradosiako
  4. Atlantis Books
  5. Eleanna’s

Win a round trip ticket to Japan on Cebu Pacific!

In case it isn’t obvious yet, I love Japan. It has been one of my dream destinations, and I’ve had the great fortune to have been able to visit the country twice. Since last year, Japan has started granting Philippine passport holders multiple-entry visas (provided that you have been to Japan before), and I managed to snag one, leaving me with the great urge to use it several times before it expires in 2016.

This is Central Japan
