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…

Spanish Cooking with Doña Elena Olive Oil

I keep cooking like my grandfather taught me, like my friend’s mothers and other people taught me. Living independently I need to cook  my own food. My ultimate dream is opening my own restaurant soon. That’s why I’m very happy when a friend of mine asked me to attend a cooking class “sounds great”.
I attended the Cooking By The Bay at the New World Manila Bay Hotel , the Home of Modern Oriental Hospitality. Featuring the “Taste of Spain” with Dona Elena Olive Oil a healthy and tasty partner in cooking Spanish sumptuous food. The class started first by introducing to us by our host Ms. Bianca King the people behind this event The Executive Chef  Mr. James William and Mr. Jun Cochanco Fly Ace President.

Pamper Your Nails at NAILAHOLICS

Being a morena, it's not easy for me to find a color palette of nail polish that will suit my brown skin. A few years back, I always use dark Red, Black, Navy Blue polish just so, my skin tone will get lighter. 

Aside from the color, I am being "maarte" or picky for a Nail Salon. I carefully check if the spa/salon is clean, sanitizing their kits and so on and one of my favorite nail spa/salons is Nailaholics. It may be pricey to other standard nail salons however, they use quality and imported nail polish and that gives you peace of mind that your nails will not be chopped nor discolored.

1. They use IMPORTED and QUALITY Nail Polish
2. Vibrant and Clean Salon
3. Very friendly staff
4. Pricey but you get what you pay for
5. They also sell other products such as Beach Born by: Sarah Tirona
6. They have different services and massage as well.

Make time to pamper your own nails. Remember that men love clean and pretty feet.  Pamper Your Nails at…

FYI: What is Harassment?

What exactly is harassment?
I know, most of you will be shocked about me posting this topic. This is a very personal topic and most of my blog is about travel, food and lifestyle however lately it's been a shocking and very insulting moment when one member of my car club posted a woman eating, wearing a short skirt and her private area is exposed, meaning no undies at all.

Here is the convo on my car club group chat, I opted to put a smiley sticker on this poor woman's private area.

One night, I was browsing my phones gallery and I was shocked to see an explicit photo on my phone gallery. I didn't realize that my 2nd spare mobile phone automatically saves photos from my group chats on facebook. I immediately open my facebook app and checked each of my group chat who sent this irritating and offensive photo of this poor woman. I found out that one new member of our car club sent this to the whole group where there are many women (single and married) and some are even wives…


I love going to the beach, snorkeling ( though I have a huge fear of the ocean) and yet I still dare to swim and maybe because I'm not friends with the water coz I'm an AIR sign (zodiac). Anyhoo, I still love staying at relaxing at the beach for a couple of days or even more. White sand, pristine water and calmness of the ocean are what I always look for a total vacation. 
Pearl Farm is one of the 5-star luxury beach resort in the Philippines, nestled on the beautiful island of Samal located in Davao Del Norte, Mindanao. Yes! this is in Mindanao - where most Filipinos and even foreigners are afraid to go because of the terrorist, but let me tell you this - Mindanao, and Davao to be exact is one of the great places to see a majestic beach and water. 
And it is safe to travel here!

Here are my top 9 reasons why I fell in love with Pearl Farm Beach Resort:

Davao Life Is Here: Sightseeing, Where To Eat, What To Do

Davao City is 2,444 sqm big. It is one of the largest city in the world and around 1.5 million in population, 85 percent are Christians, 10 percent Muslims and the remaining 5 percent are indigenous people. The diverse city is one of the livable places here in the Philippines because only 10 percent of the area is used for industrialization. Davao City is an hour away from the Mt. Apo and less than an hour you're in no time at the beach area.
January of 2016 was my first time to see the beauty of Davao. Unfortunately, I only stayed for more than 24 hrs yet I was able to manage to do city tour and this time, I am staying for 4 days and these are our itinerary:

1. Duterte Tour - we went to the 911 Davao Office and we have seen their quality emergency units and fire trucks. Luckily, Philippine president now is Mr. Rodrigo Duterte and slowly they are implementing 911 all over the Philippines.

FYI - The Philippines is the only Asian country that has 911.

2. Tour at the Banana Farm / Hijo…
