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…

Celebrating Birthdays in Crimson Hotel Alabang

I live in the south of Metro Manila where we only have a few good hotels to choose from and one of the hotels I've been wanting to try is Crimson Hotel in Alabang. Situated in front of Festival Supermall Alabang, a 3-minute walk from the Muntinlupa Fire Department, Alabang Market, and South Bus Station. Last weekend, my family and I celebrated my mom's and sister's birthday by having a relaxing weekend staycation at this hotel. A bad weather will not ruin our staycation and mood for celebrating their birthdays. My mom turned 63 and my youngest sister turned 27 by the way.

The hotel floor starts from the 8th floor to 28th floor. Level 3-5 is the parking area and level 8th is where the lobby is located, 8th Cafe, swimming pool, and gym as well. Our room is located on the 19th floor where the pool is overlooking, Laguna de Bay and a mountain in Rizal (which until now I cannot find it on google, poor me, lol).

Upon booking my room via Traveloka app which by the way I got my room with 40% off discount so I just paid our Deluxe room for only 2.500 PHP / 50 USD with no breakfast. After booking our hotel room I immediately called the hotel to request for a 2 bed. It's best to always call the hotel reservations after booking a room especially when you booked it in a hotel app. 

Room Prices starts from 4,000 PHP / 80 USD  to 9,000 PHP / 180 USD per night. They also have a nice restaurant 8 Cafe which offers a variety of food (buffet). 

Out room has 2 double bed, a sitting area with a floor lamp, a large tv, ensuite bathroom, and a nice view at the 19th floor. 

We had dinner in one of the restaurants in Festival Mall. We just walked from the hotel to the mall which is about 5-minute walk only. There are tons of restaurants in Festival Mall to choose and as usual, you can shop till you drop there, lol. 

It was a nice and relaxing weekend, we all enjoyed our stay here, and we celebrated 2 of the most important women in my life - my momma and my sister. Happy Birthday you both! Love you!

Celebrating Birthdays in Crimson Hotel Alabang

The use of this 360° virtual tour of Crimson Hotel Filinvest City Manila is authorized by Traveloka.


  1. I like the location and facilities of crimson. They really are among the top hotels in the area.

  2. Wishing your mom & sister a very happy birthday! The hotel looks chic! The view from atop at 19th floor looks cool! Good that you got a 40% off!

  3. Thanks for this recommendation of a nice hotel in Alabang for a possible staycation there. It is hard to go there because of the traffic so we might as well stay overnight.

  4. I live nearby! I can actually see Crimson from my balcony. Crimson is one of those hotels here in Alabang that I wanted to try checking in but it just seems pricey for me. I better try that Traveloka app too. :) Happy birthday to your mom and sis. Glad to see you guys enjoyed your stay. :)

  5. I loved the 360 degree virtual tour of the hotel! It looks amazing! The hotel itself has great amenities and seems perfect for families :)

  6. I want to try hotel staycation but I want to spend at least two nights there. My work doesnt allow me thay. But it was nice to know the legitimacy of hotel apps, ive never tried.

  7. Booking a hotel room at applications has perks. I`ve never tried doing that before. It`s great that you were able to get a 40% discount.

  8. The 360 is a very good way to feel like you're there. The hotel room looks like a business type room with the chairs. Very nice and relaxing.

  9. One of the best hotels in the country, indeed. I haven't tried checking in there even though they have branch here in Cebu but I am targeting to book a room one day. Hopefully when school no longer demands for so much time, perhaps. Belated Happy Birthday to your mom and your sister.

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.
