Less than 24 hours in Awaji Island

Thursday, June 28, 2018

It's been a long dream of mine to set foot in Japan. I was so close to visiting this beautiful country last 2017 with my officemates if it weren't for my denied visa application. While this situation broke my heart, the rose-colored in me fought for this and made it happen a year after.

Here I am now writing about the first island I've visited in the land of the rising sun. 🗾


Since this is technically my first solo trip abroad, my anxiety was at its peak. From dropping my luggage in the counter, boarding the plane, down to the immigration screening in Osaka, I can't help but overthink and let the worst situations overseas get into me.

The day I learned that Yasi Pressman and I have the same birthdate

Sunday, June 17, 2018

I'm not new to sharing my birthdate with celebrities since I was young. Back then, I already found out that I celebrate the same birthday with Judy Anne Santos, then with James Reid, and just recently, Yassi Pressman.

My favorite local pizza chain, Greenwich, held a Hawaiian luau-inspired birthday bash to BFFs and May celebrants Yassi Pressman and Bela Padilla! It was an intimate gathering with the birthday celebrants' families, friends, and their lucky fan clubs. 😍


The barkada isn't complete without JC Santos and Robi Domingo hosting the event. Each of them brought their a-game in the games played, musical intermissions, and to Yasi's Hawaiian dance tutorial. I have to say Yasi's tutorial was my favorite segment because everyone had fun and their fans aced every move as well!

My 2018 Commodore’s Cup Regatta Experience

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Subic Bay holds a special place in my heart because it is the first place I’ve been to outside of Metro Manila. For about quite a number of years ago, my parents allowed me to join my first ever field trip at Olongapo back in grade school, without any guardian with me. One vivid memory that I have in this place is the time that I saw a sea lion kiss my schoolmate on the cheek during an entertainment show at Ocean Adventure.


Come April 2018, l added another fond memory to my Subic Bay list of experience because this time, I got an invite to witness the convergence of top-notch sailors all over the globe as they compete in the 2018 Commodore’s Cup Regatta in the premier yacht racing destination of the Philippines.
