Year End Escapade: City of Pines – Baguio City

Standard

It’s been on my travel list to visit Baguio City, so before 2014 ends and another year will past, I have to make it happen even for a short 3-day trip to the City of Pines. What it makes it more memorable, its my first time to visit Baguio and yes I have waited this long to visit this place. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s worth the wait. They say Baguio has changed over the years and that is expected, if a place is also growing in terms of tourism and modernization. I think what makes it special is the location. Philippines is known to be a tropical country and Baguio is one of the place where the weather is colder from the rest of the cities in the country, that’s why it is also called Summer Capital of the Philippines.

My friends and I decided to have a quick trip last December, which is also a peak season in Baguio, since its a long holiday vacation, we went there right after Christmas, expecting that there were only few tourist by that time and probably most people are going back to Manila to prepare for New Year’s Eve, I guess we’re wrong, again charge to experience. ^__^ You know you’re almost there, if you start to see foggy roads, you can barely see if there are any cars coming, now I know why its dangerous to travel at night if you do not know the place but I’m getting excited already! ^__^v

Ticketsย now availableย atย SM Tickets

The first time I heard that his coming back to Manila, I told myself that I have to go and see him again. But the question is, how much are the tickets? And when I heard tickets are already on sale in all SM Ticketnet, I quickly checked their website, and to my surprised of the ticket prices are so pricey! Whoaw! As much as I wanted to see him up close, I can’t afford to buy the VIP ticket so I guess I’ll just have tp settle to a much lesser section, at least I will be able to see him even on the big screen in the Arena (I hope they do have those big screens. ๐Ÿ™‚ ) Its weird to listen to an artist where in language is a barrier, I’m sure he’ll be singing songs from his album which are all in Korean, but for me Korean songs has that certain charm that even if you barely understand a thing, you feel as if you understand it, probably its because of the melody and the depth of feeling of the Korean singers. As for Lee Min Ho this is a surprise for all of his fans, he does not only limit his talent to acting but a plus point for him to be able to showcase his talent for singing. I do hope he sings a Filipino song, I’m sure Filipinos we’ll surely get so kilig! heehee…

I hope there we’ll be a meet and greet again before the concert. ^_^ I’ll be waiting!

Summer is not complete without a SPLASH

Standard

This year our company hosted our company outing at Splash Island in Laguna. This is just a day tour so we have until the sunset to enjoy the place and the slides. We are all asked to meet down the lobby as early as 6:30am in the morning. This year our company outing includes family members as well, for them to enjoy Splash.

Honestly, I’m not that excited as the past company outings before (muntikan pa akong maiwan ^_^), but company outing is one way for employees to bond and distress, not thinking about work and just enjoying each others company. Since I haven’t been to Splash might as well enjoy the place for FREE courtesy of the company ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

We left Ortigas around 7:00am in the morning and arrived Splash Island around 8:30am. When we arrived there are already a lot of people, there are group of family and friends and other companies having their company outing as well.

[LATE POST] Imma B.Explorer

Standard

Your Boracay trip is not complete if you haven’t tried the different water sport that this paradise has to offer. With my limited stay in Boracay, I have to make the most out of it. It is a wonderful experience to be able to try some of the water sports in Boracay. (It opens my dream to learn how to swim, i so envy those people who can actually swim.) Anyways, i still get to swim using a life jacket.

Helmet Diving – is one way to get a closer look of the fishes under the sea and feed them. The weight of the helmet is no joke even if you’re on the bottom the sea it is still heavy and I can’t get my hands off from the helmet because I’m scared it my fall of my head. โ˜บโ˜บโ˜บ

This activity will last 10 to 15 minutes on the actual. For 600php/head comes a free CD. So have fun under the sea.. (:

Parasailing – is a great way to end the day and a great experience. To be able to see the island from a different view. 10 minutes of parasailing you can see the whole stretch of the island and the sunset as well. (1700php/head)

Have fun and enjoy the sea..

[LATE POST] The Island Hopping Experience

Standard

The Island Hopping Experience – We started around 10AM, we also joined with the other tourist who are also going on an island hopping. We first went to Crocodile Island for our snorkeling session. Next is the Crystal Cove (entrance fee 200php/head), where we explored 2 different caves. Had a buffet lunch and last is the Puka Beach. Not bad for 700php/head (low season rate).
