Family Weekender: Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar


Warning: Photo heavy post ahead! Remember my sister who we visited in Dubai a few months ago? Well, it was her turn to visit us here in the Philippines last October and to make her vacation worthwhile, we decided to go on a quick family weekender near the metro. We had a number of destinations in mind but eventually went with Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar because it offered the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure. Luckily, we chanced upon an Early Booking Promotion which granted us a 30% off discount on our booking. Quick Tip: Be in the look out for promos posted on their website. Book with them directly…


Bohol Budget Travel Guide


Bohol on a tight budget? Why not! Last summer, I went back to Bohol (Panglao Island specifically) with some of my closest friends at what might probably be the most budget trip I’ve ever had so far. For four days and 3 nights, with both countryside and island hopping tours, lodging, and airfare (thanks, pisofare!), the whole trip just cost us around P5,000 per person.

Bantayan Island Travel Guide for Families


Before you continue reading, I would like to emphasize that this is not a budget trip. This travel guide is intended for families vacationing with toddlers and/or senior citizens in tow. Unlike your usual barkada or couple trips, traveling with them will make you choose comfort over savings and rest over adventure. 🙂

Budget Breakdown: 5 Days and 4 Nights in Bantayan Island, Cebu


Traveling with friends is a lot different from traveling with your family, especially when there are toddlers and senior citizens. You can’t always choose what’s practical, you also have to consider the level of comfort. Despite this, my family and I (composed of 4 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 senior citizens) managed to spend less than P55,000 ALL-IN during our trip to Bantayan Island, Cebu last May. See our budget breakdown below.

Weekender: Mt. Ulap Day Hike (with Baguio Side Trip) Travel Guide


I don’t consider myself a (legit) mountaineer, though I am the type of person who constantly craves hikes. Sometimes, I do it just to break the monotonous 8am-5pm routine, but most times, to remind myself this: that once I start to pursue something wonderful, things will surely get hard but I just have to keep moving forward. Last May, I was delighted to discover that this craving was also shared by my officemates. They were mostly first timers so we decided to conquer a mountain that is forgiving to beginners: Mt. Ulap.
