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. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ 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

Malaysia: Sample Itinerary and Expenses

Standard

Here is our actual itinerary for Malaysia which is limited to Kuala Lumpur only. Why? Due to limited time and we don’t have interest on the other tourist spots in Malacca and Johor Bahru, but still hoping to visit other parts of Malaysia (someday πŸ˜€ ). So here are the places that we explored in Kuala Lumpur, no pressure and just full experience of what Kuala Lumpur has to offer. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Actual Itinerary

We made sure that we don’t commit the same mistake that we did on our last trip. Everything went smooth and according to our plan. The whole trip is “as always” tiring but I have gain new memories and experience that I will keep for a lifetime. Til my next trip πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Below is the breakdown of our expense for the 4-day stay in Malaysia we were lucky that our hotel accommodation is sponsored by a friend. We stayed at Grand Hyatt Hotel for 3-days/2 nights with breakfast and access to the hotel facilities (how lucky is that! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ :D). Our Malaysia trip wasn’t on my itinerary of the countries to visit this year, but since we got a FREE accommodation, we took the opportunity to visit Malaysia, we just make sure that we don’t overboard with our budget. Our expense doesn’t include the airfare ticket.

Sample Itinerary for Singapore Trip

Standard

Hi there, just got back from my trip to my first ever travel, SINGAPORE! Honestly, Singapore is the least country on my list that I want to go to. Although this is a fine country, they also say that traveling here is not cheap as you think. Months back I wasn’t even excited that I’d be finally be traveling outside the country, I’m not even excited to make plans on where to stay and what to see, Singapore has a lot to offer to tourist, the locale and diverse culture that has already blended on the lifestyle of Singapore, but you can still be assured that its a safe country to travel. Below is the last minute itinerary that I made, but also last minute everything has been totally changed. Whew! I can say I survived Singapore!

Bakasyunan Resort in Tanay with the family

Standard

The whole family went on an short overnight trip in Tanay just to get the family together and spend time to bond and enjoy each others company. My cousins made all the preparation and organize the trip, I’m just a bit disappointed since the information about the budget and other details were not clearly relayed to us. Though it was short I still enjoyed the short escape from the life in the not so city and work. I got to spend with my little nephews/nieces/god-daughter and just relax and cool off from scorching heat. Just an hour from Antipolo, Bakasyunan Resort is a new resort in Tanay where family and friends can enjoy, Β and if your company is looking for a corporate outing or even team buildings, this is the place for you. They have a lot of amenities which can be used for team buildings.
