There are four things I always look for when searching for an accommodation - safety, accessibility, affordability, and enough comfort.

No better way to keep customer loyalty but through rewards. Most of my flights are booked via Cebu Pacific because of their GetGo Lifestyle Rewards Program and its convenience in both earning and using points. I have had my card since 2015, the year they first launched it. Been using it since. I have also… Continue reading Guide: Getting the Most of Your GetGo card

Doesn't it feel awkward when your neighbor knows more about your own home than you do? We can't be a stranger to our… Continue reading Travel to Magalawa Island: A Beautiful Shared Experience
Bacolod City, the capital of Negros Occidental. It's one of those I-can't-believe-I-have-not-been-to places for me. With, more or less, an hour flight from Manila, very affordable and various accommodation options, friendly locals (it's actually nicknamed as the City of Smiles) a haven for foodies, a manageable and convenient public transportation, Bacolod is an attractive travel destination,… Continue reading Destination: Negros Occidental (Day 1)
