Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

Staycation at Azumi Boutique Hotel

Staying in a hotel is one of the things I love to do. We stay in a hotel about 2-3x a year and one of the newest hotel in Alabang is Azumi Boutique Hotel which was opened this January 2014. We stayed here last Feb 26-27, 2014 and booked a Standard Room. Obviously it was my daughter who enjoyed most in our stay here and every time we go in a hotel, its my daughter who's excited esp. if there's a swimming pool.

Their standard room is an average size room just like their neighbor hotel B Hotel in Madrigal Alabang. The design of the room is a modern Japanese style. The hotel try to be "green" in every way. I mean "saving" toiletries, even slippers and robes. Their toiletries includes soap, body wash and shampoo which is all organic ( unfortunately I was not able to take photos of it ). Toothbrush, toothpaste and slippers are all for request. 

The bathroom is so different to other hotels I've seen. Azumi's bathroom is see-through. If you are…

Ed Transient House - Alaminos Pangasinan

It's my first time to visit Alaminos Pangasinan and hubby wanted to go to 100 Islands so I have to look for a bigger house to accommodate 15-18 pax and luckily I found through a blog this transient house. It's just walking distance from the port of Alaminos and about 5mins drive from the city proper. I rented the house for 3 days and 2 nights and Kuya Ed (the owner) gave me a discount. For what I remeber I paid around 6000-6500 pesos for the 3 days, 2 nights stay. The house has 2 average size rooms and 3 bathroom. The 1st room has 2 queen beds with 2 extra mattresses and the 2nd room has 1 double bed and 1 extra mattress and a private bathroom.

Baguio Vacation Apartment

It was February when we went to Baguio for the Panagbenga Festival 2014. I was looking over the internet a descent, yet affordable transient house and I saw via this Baguio Vacation Apartment for 7,000 pesos per night. It is located in Baguio Pines Garden Subdivision No. 28 Munoz Drive km 4 Asin Circumferential Road Baguio City Proper. The apartment is a bit far on Session Road about 10mins drive away (if I'm not mistaken).

The apartment is a 3 storey house, but because I booked with 3 bedroom and 2 bath, it's located on the 2nd floor of the apartment. It has a Masters bedroom is located in the 2nd floor and the other 2 rooms are on the 3rd floor. It has a veranda on the 2nd floor just beside the small sala. The good thing about this transient house is that all kitchen and dining utensils are provided and even cooking wares. The house is good for 8 pax. 1st room on the 3rd floor has 1 double bed and the 2nd room has 4 single beds and 2 extra mattresses.

If we wi…
