Palawan Chronicles: Meeting the “Locals”

We only have one full day at Apulit Island so time is of the essence!  Gotta do what we gotta do, and this day turned out better than I had anticipated.  Here’s our second day at the island.

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…

Hotel Review: City Center Hotel (Baguio, 2017)

We stayed at City Center Hotel for the latter half of our impromptu Baguio trip.  This isn’t my first time to stay here so it’s a good chance to see what’s changed since then.

Hotel Review: Galleria 12 Sukhumvit (Bangkok)

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.

Do you know that pedestrian overpass that links Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 with Newport City?  Well, it has a name and it’s called Runway Manila and it’s now open!  I had the chance to use it early this week and here’s my experience.

Bangkok Diaries: Wat Pho, Silom, and More!

We didn’t have to go far from The Grand Palace to get to our next destination, Wat Pho or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.  It is just behind the complex and it is a must-see Bangkok attraction.
