Staycation at Hotel H20 For My Daughter’s 7th Birthday

One unique resort hotel that you can find in the Philippines is the Hotel H2O. It is imbued with relaxing and luxurious indulgence that every businessman or traveller will surely love. With the marine-theme which is first in the Philippines, one can feel a different and euphoric experience.

Staying at Hotel H20 to celebrate my daughter’s 7th birthday was an awesome idea! Credit to me of course! We were contemplating of going to HK Disneyland or Boracay but because of some unavoidable circumstances, we ended up looking for a place near Manila. And for kids and the kids-at-heart mommy, after votation, we finally booked at Hotel H20. Yipee! And we didnt just stay in the hotel, we also bought tickets for the Manila Ocean Park! Awesome! (I will post another for Manila Ocean Park) read more

Christmas Vacation in Bukidnon

Christmas is just around the corner. There will be lights, gifts and foods to share. I will not be buying gifts this year as I am saving for our planned travel to Bukidnon. This will be first time my kids will set foot in Mindanao and I want it to be extra special. I want to introduce to them my life as the daughter of a farmer thus planning of bringing them in the farm to help in something. It is going to be a different life, a simple life. Free from complications.

At first, they disagreed but after I told them that they can ride horses, carabaos and cows. They can swim in the rivers and lakes. They showed great enthusiam and now always talking about that. Oh well, my problem is now we don’t have horses and carabaos.. lol read more

Short Trip To Bukidnon

Lucky or not, but I am sure leaving for Cagayan de Oro on Sunday. Why lucky? Because, it’s the Cagayan de Oro Fiesta or locally called as Kagay-anon Festival. The last time I celebrated their festival was when I was still in Grade 5 at Lapasan Elementary School. Literally speaking, although I grew up on this city and partly in Bukidnon, but the next time I visit, its like a different place.

Unlucky? Not really, it’s just that the typhoon Mina is in the Philippines and I dislike traveling with turbulence. It’s so uncomfortable and yes – risky too! read more
