Palawan Chronicles: The Trip to Paradise

Palawan is called the Philippines’ “last frontier” and joins the ranks of “the best islands in the world” among travel websites and magazines these past few years.  And so, when an opportunity to visit the province came, deciding was easy.  And this would be one of my most epic getaways so far.

Lost and Found

I was in the midst of covering the 2017 Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay when a lapse of judgment caused me to break my phone and lose my recently taken photos with it.  Months later, I was able to revive my phone and was glad to recover the shots I thought would be lost forever.

Hotel Review: City Center Hotel (Baguio, 2017)

Another reason why I enjoyed our trip to Bangkok is because of our hotel.  With so many options to choose from, here’s why we picked Galleria 12 Sukhumvit as our home during our stay in the city.

Bangkok Diaries: Pad Thai and Airports

Pad Thai is my favorite Thai dish and I wanted to conclude our trip by having some of the best Pad Thai in Bangkok.  And I think we found it and that’s basically all we had time for on our last day in the city.

The only time we rode a “tuktuk” was on our last day, on way out of our hotel
