Tagaytay is one of my favorite destination for short road trips. The scenic view of Taal Volcano, cool breezy weather, classic and newly opened restaurants and coffee shops and syempre naman nature, nature, nature are just few of my favorites … Continue reading
This year I’m super happy that I went to Divisoria (168 Mall) to completed my Christmas shopping list. I went there 3rd Friday of November 2014, it’s a good time to go, because there’s only few people in the mall. Hindi mo … Continue reading
road tripping with my cousins was off my bucket list. Last summer (June 2014) #TeamSanchez goes to Camaya Coast, located in Mariveles, Bataan. At sinong may pasimuno, syempre ako! 🙂 I love spending time with my cousins. Though we lived in the same place at Aser Sanchez Compound, we rarely spend time together growing up. Buti pa nung mga bata kame, when life is just simple, we all have same schedule in class, and in the afternoon after we do our homework we can play. And this is one of those rare times we can travel together.
We avail this one day tour pass cost P800, including lunch and free use of bike and kayak from Metrodeal. We rented a van from Binan, Laguna to Camaya Coast, P7,000/van including toll fees and fuel. You may contact Doy, (0925) 8686180, I highly recommend.
We enjoyed the beach. It’s high tide so we’re not able to try kayak.
Sinong mas creative, sinong bet nyo? Team Aser o Team Silang?
Frisbee in action!
Around Camaya Coast…
In spite of negative reviews from trip advisor, about the deal, we choose to go and thank God, we have a great time! Buffet lunch is overflowing, they served, fish fillet, pansit, grilled chicken, chopsuey, and fresh fruits.
It’s been 5 years since I joined my first and last ever Victory Alabang single’s retreat. In 5 years, ang dami nang nagbago. Cai, our VG leader, is like our mother, she looks after us and ensure that we’re having … Continue reading
Magdapio Falls is located between Cavinti and Pagsanjan, Laguna. I just knew that Magdapio Falls was used to be the famous Pagsanjan Falls. I lived in Laguna, but never been around. So, instead of the usual Tagaytay roadtrip with my friend, we head on to Cavinti, Laguna to see th falls. Pagsanjan is 2.5 hr from Manilla, while Cavinti is 3 hrs from Manila. Continue reading
As I bid goodbye to my Monsanto friends “Eat Girls” we had our despedida at Crosswinds Tagaytay.
We stayed in one bedroom suite.
All Honda Bay boatmen were trained to this photo tricks. I am really impressed of the talent creativity of this simple locals of Puerto Princesa. Filipinos are really talented. It’s not just the island who attracts tourists, but even the kindness, hospitality, passion and talent of Pinoys! I’m so proud to be Pinoy.
Heto na ang mga bonggang-bonggang camera tricks, na pilit man naming gayahin on our own, di namin keri…
Photo Op wi, at Starfish Island. Mabigat sis, nakakalaki ng muscle…
Si mother dear, pakitang gilas, isang finger lang, kering-keri ang starfish!
At syempre ang mag-jowa, nagtutulukan… Di ko magets promise, SJ and Ap-ap? Anong drama nyo dito?
David and Goliath “the lovestory”, Lovers SJ as Goliath and Ap-ap as David.
David and Goliath “Family Matters”, Joy as Goliath and Jell as David.
May galit sa Coke? Si Princess, pwede pa, since nagwork sa Pepsi ang Papa nya, pero si Eillor ano ang moda?
At walang awa, pinagtulungan pa…
At ang bagong pina-uso namin ni sister, tadan… “My Havaianas and I”, push!
Of course, ang aking travel buddy na si Pink Flashy Havs goes to Cowrie Island!
At si siter, gumagaya… lol
Cowrie Island is the best part of our island hopping in Honda Bay. I’m glad that this is the last island of the tour and we can spend long time here. Oh well, define, pure white sand and blue-green crystal waters…
What I love about the island is these trees surrounded along the seashore. Syempre may shade effect, pwede kang mag-emote and mag-relax while enjoying the view of the sun, sea and sand… At least, hindi ka masyadong iitim. Walang ganitong puno sa Boracay or sa Bohol or kahit sa Malapascua. So here, you can just chill under this tree and enjoy the art of doing nothing. So my cousins and I, just chill and enjoy the blue waters…
Another thing I love about Cowrie Island are the coconut trees, free cottages, affordable restaurant and outdoor body massage by the locals. This is really the best place to relax after a long day of island hopping, snorkeling and picture taking!
You can avail the buffet lunch in this island and get a free entrance for only P300. They serve good food.
Definitely you get good value for your money!
Our second day in Palawan is all about exploring the Island of Honda Bay. Logistics going to Honday Bay is easy. All you need to do is to hire a van or a tricycle who will bring you to the Honda Bay Port. If you’re travelling alone to 4 persons you may opt to hire a tricycle which will cost you P500-P600 or if you’re in a bigger group hire a van which will cost you around P1200-P1500. Since we’re a group of 9, we hire Kuya Duds van, I never had a chance to met him, because I knew he’s an owner of van operators in Palawan. You may contact him at (63) 939 906 4808 or (63) 917 590 2001. He and his team are very honest and nice.
In Honda Bay Port, you can customized which island you want to visit according to your budget and time. Our group choose, Starfish Island (P50), Pambato Reef (P50) and Cowrie Island (P300 with buffet lunch). Then you also have to rent a boat, small boat will cost P1300 and big boat will cost P1500.
Our first stop is the Starfish Island…
All the boat men were trained to do this camera tricks. This is the best part of the starfish island experience.
We also rented a small cottage (P50) where we leave all our things.
This lagoon is a project of Mayor Hagedorn, locals in Puerto Princesa, usually have tree planting projects every month. This is to sustain the natural resources and the wonderful environment of Puerto Princesa.
Of course, my sister, mother and I explore and enjoy the first island.
And my cousins too! But honestly, I only saw one starfish in the island… That’s why it’s named “Starfish Island” and not “Starfishes Island.” The water is not the best place to swim but you can go snorkeling and we enjoyed it!
I’m blessed to have a job that gives me opportunity to travel. This year, since January, I’ve been always away from home for almost every week. Though I really love to travel (traveling always excites me), frequent trips is physically exhausting, tiring… You packed and unpacked, check-in your luggage, wake-up early and skip some meals. Not to mention that I drive myself to and from the airport. Thank God to Park n Fly.
One of the perks of business travel is to stay in a nice hotel. You deserve it anyway, after a long tiring field work or meeting, all you want to do next is to get a decent sleep. I thought of sharing my rooms away from my room at home for the past two months of business trips! I love my job!
