What’s in my bag?

In the ten years I've been traveling, I've gone through so many travel gears and accessories. There are some that other people have sworn by, but I find not quite fitting for me and my style of travel. I have items that I've had since I started, and continue to buy when it wears out. And then there are those…read more

Hotel Review: KL Tower Serviced Residences

Disclaimer: I was invited by the hotel to stay overnight at their property, free of charge.

Since I work from home, and have enrolled all my bills to online banking, there is very little reason for me to leave my house. When cabin fever hits, I venture out of my cave, and make sure to schedule everything in one day, so that I won’t have to go out again until the following week (or at least I try to). That’s why for the past couple of dinner invites from friends who work and live in Makati, I opted to book an apartment in Makati to save the hassle of having to rush back home to work. I also made sure that it’s right before I’m flying out, so I’m nearer to the airport.

As luck would have it, the kind people of KL Tower Serviced Residences reached out to me as I was looking for a place to book last March 14th. They booked me for an overnight stay in their One Bedroom Loft.

Review: WorldBitesPH Snack

Over the last couple of years, I’ve gotten hooked on watching YouTube videos, specifically the ones produced by Buzzfeed. I particularly love the videos where they try different food from around the world — I enjoy seeing them get squeamish about food that’s unfamiliar.

When World Bites reached out and asked if I want to try one of their subscription boxes, I was game: this is my chance to do my own taste test, sans the video.

Review: Ocean Suites Bohol

I normally don’t travel during Philippine holidays, primarily because my work requires me to follow the US holidays, but also because I know everybody will be traveling then, and the prices go up. However, My birthday falls between Thanksgiving and Bonifacio Day this year, so when I chanced upon a Cebu Pacific seat sale, I quickly booked a trip to Bohol with my friends Sunshine and Bea.

Ocean Suites Bohol 00014

Just a couple of days after that, I received an email from Deal Grocer, asking me to choose among their hotel deals for an overnight stay. I was still in Bulusan that time (September), and won’t be back in Manila until the end of October, so I thought, why not use the voucher for a stay on my birthday, during our Bohol trip?
