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.

BGC Hostel that Gives Great Comfort to all Travelers 


  1. I was there. BGC Hostel has all the necessities at yung wala, makukuha sa establishments na malapit like Mercury Drugstore. But what I liked the most is its location. Napakadaling hanapin.

  2. Love the place. So affordable and near main thoroughfare. Love the colors and characters. And i appreciate the owners decision to put curtains for extra privacy.

    1. i also like having curtains for added privacy though you are in a mixed dorm bed

  3. This hostel looks comfortable and nice.. Can consider to go and stay!

  4. That's amazing! It's really affordable and I love the decor, it's perfect for backpackers or those who are simply on a budget. Good to know that there are establishments that are near too, especially food.

  5. Looks like the perfect place to stay in if you're on a budget while on vacation. There are plenty of spots nearby which is great if you want to pass the time! I really like the rooms, the place looks full of life!

  6. Looks as good as a hotel. Definitely I can recommend to people or stay myself if I plan a vacation!

  7. This is really accessible to buses and even MRT. I'll tell my relativesto stay here when they are in town.

  8. This hostel looks neat and clean. For budget travelers and backpackers, quite a good idea to try.

  9. I'm digging into hostels of late. Stayed in 2 last month and gonna stay in 1 next month... Hostels are great for socialist plus accommodation!

  10. Hostel is good as it's kind on the pocket and allow travellers spend the money on other areas such as attractions and souvenirs!

  11. I do not think I will ever get to stay in this hostel, but it is good to know that places like this already exist near EDSA and Makati. You will never know if you need it in an emergency, like an all-nighter Carmageddon, and you really cannot keep awake anymore.

  12. I think it offers a good deal for low budget and backpackers but not sure about if travelling with my kids.

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.
