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…

Coffee Chill at Carpe Diem


What better way to relax and just enjoy the rainy weather is by sipping a good coffee and snacking some sweet baked goodies. Weather here in Manila is so erratic, in the morning, it's really sunny, then in the afternoon it will rain cats and dogs. I needed some place to chill and write my blogs in a quiet and nice place.

I have been seeing Carpe Diem along BF Aguirre Paranaque and I was able to find time to try their coffee. They're open from Monday to Sunday, morning till late evening. They also have free wifi however, once there are so many connected on their WIFI, the connection will get slower, good thing I always bring my pocket wifi with me. 


Once I stepped inside the cafe, I immediately liked the place and love the small details on their shelves. Enough lighting in which I liked the most. They have 3 pairs of comfy couches which I always looked for in a coffee shop. 


If only I brought my kid with me, surely she'll fall asleep here in the their comfy couch, lol. 




I ordered my all time favorite Cappuccino. Whenever I order a hot coffee, I always ask to make it EXTRA hot however, once this is served to me, I can easily sip my coffee, it's not even hot. It's just warm! This is really disappointing, though I will still go here and next time I will emphasize my order EXTRA HOT.

  1. This is such a nice place. I love cozy cafes where you can spend an entire morning or afternoon in without hassle.

  2. I grew up in the south and I've always like BF villages because of the coffee shops they have even back then. I haven't seen Carpe Diem, but when I go visit a friend back there, I'll ask to check this place out with her. :) Starbucks are so yesterday,aren't they? haha.

  3. The place gives off a homey and cozy feel overall. I'm a huge coffee drinker and Carpe Diem looks like a great place to relax, read a book, write an article while sipping a latte. :)

  4. Aaah, the perks of living in the South. We just soooo many dining options to choose from. I have yet to try Carpe Diem - this is actually the first time that I've heard about it but it sure is a place that I'd like to check out.

  5. This would be an amazing chill spot. I'm always looking for places where I can go and relax without the kids.

  6. Haven't been to the south to try any coffee shops/restaurants because it's just too far from my place. Carpe Diem will be definitely be added to my must try places if ever I'll be in the area soon. :)

  7. I love the name. Seize the day. If I'd be able to visit this shop, I'll surely seize the day to try all their best offering.

  8. The latte art in Cape Diem looks great! Another coffee shop to go to. Would you know if they're a normal coffee shop or they serve specialty coffee (meaning do they hand-brew espresso with a pour-over or aeropress)? I'm pretty curious because I might add them to my coffee crawl.

    1. They just serve normal coffee. If you want a specialty coffee, try Magnum Opus also in Aguirre.

  9. Coffee shops are sprouting like mushroom everywhere. Hopefully, their coffee will taste as good as the place's ambiance. It looks relaxing and cozy.

  10. This is a nice coffee cafe. Though I am not into coffee but munching some of their sweet baked goodies is good try. I'll be at Cafe Alezon this evening and how I wish to drop by the place.

  11. Meh meh, I'm a difficult person to please, and somehow coffee doesn't attract me! I will go for fruit juice if there is!

  12. The place looks so comfy with all the fine details in the place. It looks like a great place to hang out.

  13. Sorry about the lukewarm coffee, but the latte art at least still look good ;)

  14. I will fall asleep in that couch myself. I will not order coffee, but I will eat those cakes in the plastic bag. I want to eat those!

  15. I like the simple and homey decor of this cafe it has the pure coziness. Hope that their coffee is good too. If I am going to that area I, will give Carpe Diem a try.

  16. Were you able to bring up the "extra hot" concern to their barista? If you did, what action did they do to make it up to you? Because if simple requests such as this are forgotten or worst ignored by their staff, it can easily push new customers away.

    1. Yup and the barista said, it was an extra hot!

Beach-Lovin: La Thalia Beach Resort

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean. It's been a while since I had a visit to the beach and I had such a great time spending my 2 days at the La Thalia Beach Resort in Bauan Batangas. Batangas is a 2-hour drive from Manila and Bauan Batangas has white beach sand. La Thalia is a half hectare property that has a great beach front andrelaxing rooms - couple room & barkada room/family room, Pavillion that can accommodate 100 pax, restaurant, basketball court, table tennis, and water sports such as Jetski, Paddle Boat, Kayak and they also offer island tour where you and your group can have fish feeding and snorkeling at the same time.
