After a bumpy and very dusty ride, we were rewarded by this view. The wind was so cold. This is the crater of Mt. Pinatubo. The water in this crater is from River Maraunot (as what our guide said). #volcano #mountain #crater #mtpinatubotrekking #zambales

Waiver for our trekking to Mount Pinatubo later. Everything is our sole responsibility. Whatever will happen to us, it’s on us. The risk of enjoying mother nature’s beauty. #mtpinatubotrekking

The Marlboro Country is one of the most picturesque spots in Mahatao. Once you’re on top of those hills, you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world. The wind was so cold when we went there yesterday. #Batanes2015Trip #Batanes #hills #ocean #sky

Top 10 Things I Love About Pitogo Island (Photos)

After over a year of residing in that quaint and laid-back island, I can honestly say that I won’t be easily impressed anymore if I’ll see any other smaller islands in the country.

While writing this blog post, I’m currently preparing to travel to Batanes with my friend.  We booked a homestay accommodation in Basco for 7 days but I’m not sure if we will stick with that schedule.  I prefer to stay longer.

While I was researching for blog reviews about Batanes and was checking a lot of photos of the place, I can’t help but noticed that the sceneries […] Continue Reading…

The very first time that I used my @agoda reward points was in this #hotel. If you are constantly traveling and would love to instantly book a room online, I highly recommend Agoda.com. So many accommodations to choose from and you can often get discounts if there are promos. The more you book, the higher your reward points which you can use as payment in your next booking. #agoda #hotel #onlinebooking

A standard room in this resort is as big as a family room in others but the rate is quite lower and very reasonable. When you travel to #Boracay, don’t forget to check Lingganay Beach Resort. You’ll surely be surprised how huge the place is and how beautiful their infinity pools are. #hotel #hotelreview #boracay

Home Buying Tips: Bank versus In-House Financing

There are definitely many things to consider when buying a house, but this does not stop anyone from dreaming of their very own home. One of the biggest challenges that people face when it comes to house ownership is actually having the cash to purchase one upfront. Applying for a housing loan provides a viable option, and these can be provided by the government’s Social Security System (SSS), the Pag-IBIG Fund, or commercial banks. In recent years, another option has surfaced wherein real estate developers have also begun to offer in-house financial services.

Property experts from Lamudi have created a […] Continue Reading…
