Travel Plans for 2015

Have you been to any of the Hotels near Durango Coloardo? I haven’t yet. But I wish I could someday. Perhaps, in one of my post-retirement travels? Why not? I could always include it in my travel plans, right?

To be very honest, I don’t have any concrete travel plans this 2015. My goals are mostly financial, which means I intend to save money and limit my spending. But a girl can dream, right? If I am to make some travel plans for this year, I know of some places that I really, really wanna explore.

First among them is Batanes. I’ve always been dreaming of stepping my feet onto the popular Marlboro hills of that place. I’m also curious about the local culture there. Part of my itinerary would be paying a visit to one of the stone houses there and talk to its residents. You see, they live in stone houses to protect themselves from the strong typhoons that regularly hit their place. It will surely gonna be a very enriching experience for me.

Another place I wanna visit is Davao. Aside from its tourist spots, I like the place because it is known for its high level of peace and order. I heard Davaoeños are a well-disciplined bunch and their government leaders are setting a good example on them. It must be very fun to just observe and people watch there while exploring their local food and enjoying their wondrous sights.

I still have a few more local destinations that I wanna go to. Instead of going to a foreign country, I’d rather enjoy first what my own country has to offer. But that’s not to say I won’t travel to a foreign country anymore. I just believe I’ll have more time for that when I’m older. For now, I wanna explore local places and help in the promotion of Philippine tourism in my own little way.

A Shopping Challenge

I started this year with a shopping challenge. It’s actually a ‘no’ shopping challenge which is known online as a shopping fast. If other people can do it, why can’t I, right? I admit I can be a shopaholic. I’m also very much into impulsive shopping. But I realized I still have tons of stuff lying around the house. Some of them I haven’t even used yet while a few others I didn’t know existed until recently.

A Fun and Packed Saturday

Last Saturday was fun and packed. From Manila, we drove all the way to Jollibee – Greenmeadows in Pasig to join the celebration of my cousin’s son Trey’s 2nd birthday. It turned out to be a mini-reunion for us because my aunts, uncles and cousins and their extended families were there.

Fun and Adventure Await at the Sandbox, Alviera

Last Saturday, April 5th, the hubby, my brother and I braced ourselves for some fun and adventure as we joined more than a hundred people from the blogging community and traditional media to the Sandbox in Alviera, Porac, Pampanga. It was an outdoor experience like no other and I was glad we traveled all the way to the north to preview it. The trip, which let us use the wide roads of both NLEX and SCTEX (to get to the Porac exit), was definitely worth it.

My Lazada Philippines Shopping Experience

I’m not new to online shopping. I’ve been doing it since the time of Multiply sellers (too bad there’s no Multiply marketplace anymore). I shop online when I have spare money and I just window shop online when I don’t have money to spend. I find online shopping easy to do and quite therapeutic, too, just like how traditional shopping is.

Chic and Affordable Bags from Bellissimafirenze

Online shopping is the best thing that’s ever happened to shopping. Or at least, that’s what most shopaholics will tell you these days. Even yours truly has been bitten by the online shopping bug. Right now, I’m obsessed with those locally-made bags that are marketed either on IG or FB. They’re not just stylish but also affordable and come in fab designs.

New Body Lotion Variants from Jergens

I remember Jergens from my childhood. It used to be my mom’s body lotion brand of choice. I’d usually see her fresh from the bath applying the lotion all over her body in a familiar rhythm. I dunno but when I grew up, I really didn’t give a damn about lotion, or taking care of my skin for that matter, despite mom’s influence. I’m just a low-maintenance girl. Yes, I do apply lotion to my body (actually just my arms and legs) but only when I’m wearing skirt. I haven’t been used to applying lotion on a daily basis. Well, I guess it’s just me, that’s just how I want it to be.

On Having a Good Skin Care Regimen


Posters at Zazzle

I don’t really have a standard skin care regimen. I guess I’m a low-maintenance girl like that. But as I age, the need to take good care of my skin gets hard to ignore. That’s why I’m slowly becoming more open to revolutionary skin treatments that could give my skin the proper care it requires. I know I can’t afford to lose my youth and vitality sooner than the normal time.
