Worry-free wandering around Hong Kong with my phone

Sunday, March 18, 2018

I can't say that my last year's visit to Hong Kong was a splendid one because (1) I'm attending a conference which means I never got the chance to be in tourist mode, and (2) I experienced hiccups on my flight back to Manila.

That's why on my second trip to asia's world city,  I made it a point to make my visit as breezy as possible. I owe the chunk of my lightheartedness in the entirety of my latest travel to my latest smartphone: the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Lite

Unconsciously, I took the navigator role in my group during my group's full day in HK. I've only been to this country once and I was the "kaladkarin" companion back then. Which is why for this day, I heavily relied on my phone for directions and on-the-spot online research (ex. what good restaurants to eat, nearby tourist spot, and etc.)

First Japan Winter Experience: 11 Travel Essentials to not miss

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Just when I thought I researched thoroughly in preparation for the inevitable one-digit winter Japan weather, I still have to charge everything to experience and learn things along the way. Take the must-bring travel essentials for example, I know the things that I'll definitely be lugging with me. Yet, there are still stuff that I needed to get along the way to make the most out of my first ever trip to the land of the rising sun.

First of all, Accuweather said that the weather in Awaji Island during my stay is far more than the typical Baguio weather. I've never valued beanie, gloves, thick jackets, heattech, face mask, and boots this much in my life, tbh. 

My first mistake during this trip is that I relied heavily on my Nike Kaishi for the entirety of the trip. Only to realize that a single breeze can be the death of me because the shoes have holes to keep the feet ventilated. Haha All thanks to my big sister for lending me her extra pair of boots.

Nobu Hotel & DreamPlay by Dreamworks Experience

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

A few weeks before my much-awaited trip to Japan, the Blogapalooza team hit me up and asked if I'm down for a staycation at Nobu Hotel (a Japanese-themed luxurious hotel in City of Dreams Manila).

I thought to myself, "this is a good pre-game before my trip". That's why I immediately replied yes, packed my bag, and headed to Pasay for a staycation (with the parentals for the first time!)

Kilig the second time around with Kwentong Jollibee Valentine Series 2018

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

They say that love is sweeter the second time around. Does the same thing go for viral kilig videos, too? Jollibee made an attempt to once again capture the hearts of many by releasing another set of Valentine series that sure took the internet by storm. You’ll see later what I mean about this! :)

First off, I would like to express how enamored I am to see Chico Garcia and Delamar Arias together again for a hosting event. Being a silent fan of the morning rush, I gushed a little bit as I see them make their way towards the floor to kick off the event. 

Fun fact: The two of them, together with Gino Quillamor, interviewed me live on air for the Monster RX 93.1 Monster Scholarship Program last 2015. How time flies!

Look how intense the figures went just a few days after these shorts got released!
