Chill Trip to Bacolod+

Take me back!

Okay, this is a very, VERY late post. Early this year, I went to Bacolod with friends to spend a long weekend there. Our plan was simple. We just wanted to stay on the beach, drink and eat! No extreme activity unlike the last time 🙄.

We went straight to our hotel to spend the night but I took time to take some photos at Bacolod Public Plaza. Why doesn’t Metro Manila have more plazas anymore? I’m so inggit. 😪

A Visit to “Viva Polo”+

I visited EXO Chanyeol’s Italian family restaurant “Viva Polo” last April in Seoul. The food’s really, really good! Every bit of it is worth all the Won in my wallet.

Hunting Down “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” Filming Spots in Seoul, South Korea6

I was stressed the week before and during Holy Week so I did something crazy: I booked a flight bound to Seoul, the land of Kim Bok Jo , the next day! Okay, it wasn’t all that crazy. It’s just crazy for my pockets. I was crashing a Korean spring trip of my friends (who booked their tickets last year btw). Not having time to regret my decision, I had to go home straightaway and pack my bags!

My friends were going to Nami Island and considering I’ve been there three times already, I passed and decided my trip to visit all the filming locations of the latest Korean drama that I fell in love with: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (Korean title: 역도요정 김복주). Exploring the city alone was no problem but the fact that no one was there to take my picture made me second guess my decision. All’s good. *tears*

Here are just five of the best Kim Bok Joo filming spots that I found. Enjoy!

Amiciness Goes on a VL: Davao, Philippines+

Last August, a friend from Canada returned to the Philippines for a vacation. Her hometown was Davao so like any good impulsive friend, I, along with friends from college, booked a flight and flew to the south again. This was my third trip to Davao and my barkada have already been there at least once, so we decided to just make the trip as relaxing as possible. (Our young professional bodies were VERY tired!) In our own terms, we wanted to make it a “Lola Trip.” No offense meant to grandmas, of course. We love y’all! Well, things didn’t turn out as planned.

A trip to Davao isn’t complete without visiting the president’s house.

Amiciness Goes on a VL: Surigao1

Yoga Pose #2 HAHA

This is a very late post but I have to say that this has been one of the most amazing travels ever! EVER! Amiciness Goes on a VL featured Oriental Mindoro last January, which was short and sweet, but my trip to Surigao set the bar high for my travels throughout this year. I’ve been hearing about Surigao since I was in grade school but I never really knew what it looked like. Too bad, none of my teachers told me it was paradise. I should have gone there sooner. I want to go back! Take me back!


 🎶Is it too late now to say Surigao?🎶

My friends and I booked a promo flight bound to Butuan City because the flight to Surigao City is way more expensive. Can you believe that this was my first flight for 2016 (and only flight as of August)? I was excited (since I filed a three-day vacation leave for this) but I didn’t know what to expect. I was just really looking forward to dive in the Hinatuan Enchanted River but this part of the south offered more than that. Surigao completely blew me away. I wanted the trip to go on forever, and ever, and ever.

Blew me away, literally!
