With the help of social media, you might be aware of all the calamities happened in the Philippines. From terrifying earthquake which hit Bohol badly, to that strong typhoon named Yolanda causing many people lives in a bad state from Palawan, Samar, Leyte and other part of the country.
We can help. We can do something even if we don't have much financial resources.

Few years back, we had our company outing in Punta Fuego in Nasugbo, Batangas. After a year I realized that I accidentally deleted the photos in my computer, kainis diba? And what's left? The few photos I uploaded in my personal facebook account. Maybe it is too late to post but then I think I still want to share the photos left. If someone might think of going here for a weekend getaway, at least he/she'll have an idea of what to see. :)

On our third day in Singapore, we went out to explore Bugis and Chinatown. I heard that it is best to go to these places when hunting for souvenirs. We love buying pasalubong (souvenir or food products) for our friends and family back home. Yes, most often, it cost a lot but we wanted to share the happiness brought to us by traveling. I guess that's our culture, Filipinos are so thoughtful. :)

Singapore is my second out of the country trip early last year. This prosperous city-state is so well known because of many Filipinos working here, mostly in tourism and IT industry. This became memorable for me because of the misadventures we had during planning and the trip itself. Nonetheless, Singapore is worth visiting I'd love to come back.

Alubihod Beach in the morning
Good morning Guimaras! It was a pleasant first day and we're excited to explore more. On our 2nd day in Guimaras, we went for some island hopping before going back to Iloilo. As I've said in the previous part of this trip series, we chose Raymen Beach Resort because we need other travelers to join us in renting the boat to split cost. Another couple from Cebu join us as well. We're now 6!!

Guimaras' Alubihod Beach
Iloilo and Guimaras are provinces located in the Western Visayas Region. Guimaras is an island located few minutes boat ride away from Iloilo City, that's why most of traveler's route is to visit Guimaras Island as well when they are in Iloilo City. I only have few days to spare, gladly I was able to visit the places I wanted to see.

Imagine a time I had wish I could go to the mall for a walk and shop for some items. There are times I wasn't able to do that as I've been too occupied with work during weekdays, and been very busy with personal stuff during weekends. In that favorable moments, sometime early this year, my officemates were busy looking at this site, Lazada Philippines, as they religiously looking for some items they plan to buy.

No sooner does Easter disappear from view, do we see another half term on the horizon and, as always, keeping the kids entertained for the duration will ensure that stress won’t rear its ugly head. For most schools across the country, half term this year falls at the end of the month, between the 27th and the 31st May and, with warm summer weather expected, it’d be a perfect time to head for the seaside.
