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…

Another Affordable Hotel in Makati - Saint Illians Inn


After our staycation last New Year's Eve at Herald Suites Makati, I was looking for a much affordable hotel that can accommodate my relatives coming from the province and they were looking for a homey type of hotel but for an affordable price that accommodates 3 persons in 1 room. Beside Herald Suites is Franchise One Hotel and the reception of Franchise One suggested me to go to their sister hotel Saint Illian's Inn which is just about 5-7 minutes walk from their hotel. On the same street of Franchise One Hotel, I found Saint Illian's Inn.   

If you look outside the building it looks an old dormitory/apartment building with vines all over the facade. Beside the hotel are residential houses and apartments. Upon entering the hotel, you will immediately see their cafeteria and the lobby. I find the hotel staff really friendly and accommodating. I asked the receptionist if they have a room good for 3 pax which is under 3,000 pesos per night with breakfast and luckily they have rooms for that. 




They showed me their family room with 3 single beds, a LED tv, ensuite bathroom and at the corner of the room is a coffee table. The room is pretty small, I mean if you are traveling and staying with kids who are very playful and hyper this room is not gonna be a playground for them, lol. 




Saint Illian's Inn, Franchise One Hotel and Makati International Hotel has all DVD for free to borrow. They have tons of choices from a Romantic movie to drama, action packed film and even cartoons for our kids. 





One thing I loved about this hotel is that they over a promo for longer stays, I am booking a family room for 2 nights and they offered me to pay only 3,800 PHP / 77.55 USD. Now that is a HUGE discount. I have a family of three who will stay at the hotel and they only have to shell out 1,300 PHP / 25.85 USD for 2 nights stay!

It pays huge savings if you really check on all hotels in the area and asked for a discount.

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.
