Bakasyunan Resort Tanay

My second time in doing team building.

As a second-timer doing a team building for me it’s an advantage because some of the activities I can handle it very well considering that it’s not my first anymore.

However my second team building turned out to be the most memorable one, simply I love spending time with my colleague and at the same time there is also a different challenges  than my first one.


This one seems to be a little bit extreme for me I guess? And the focus of the challenges are mainly into “TRUST”, helping one another, achieving goals, tactics and so on.

To be honest I cannot remember if our teams win, because most of the time I’m just laughing.

The Forest Club

Technically we visited this place for team building purposes. Never been in a team building before and and definitely this one is my first!

The Forest Club is located at Laguna, this place is a nature loving place and yeah we enjoyed our stay in this place.

It was my cousin’s wedding (who actually live abroad and he’s marrying a girl from Isabela).

Ever since my boyf and I have been thinking of visiting this place (his birthplace). Though it wasn’t part of the plan to visit this place, but given the opportunity yeah we grab it.

The Longest Travel by Land

From Manila to Isabela it took almost 7-8 hours, and definitely I’m not inlove travelling by land.

The Traditional Wedding

We experienced a lot of dancing in this place, DANCE -the night before the wedding and the wedding. Even heard an Ilocano song and also where you have to give some money during the dance.

Magat Dam

Since we arrive early, my cousin’s friends and his parents decided to have a little quick trip, we visited the Magat Dam. And it was beautiful can’t believe that this dam is such a beau.

St. James Parish Church

It was actually a 2 days and 1 night stay, so before we head home, boyf and I visited his birthplace where he got baptized.

Canyon Cove

For the first time in forever my boyf and I will celebrate our anniversary out-of-town. And by the way he was too hands-on on booking the hotel accommodation. Making sure it will be a pamper place for the two of us.

So we look for a beach place that is near in Manila and yeah we ended up in Canyon Cove.

Highlight: The pool in this place is great because of the less chlorine, they offer beach activities too and you don’t need snorkeling I guess? you just wake up early and visit the beach you’ll see those cute lil fish (and they gonna bite you too… 🙂 )


Exactly what we needed after coming from too much stress. Though there is nothing much in this place what matters is that we’re able to appreciate what we have and what more will come.

This travel happened last August 2014

A few months ago, I’ve been talking about my upcoming travel where I have to plot it on Google Maps. And Yes, that place is Cebu and Bohol (tho in Bohol, we hired a travel agency).

DIY Part

What I did is that I just searched the best places to eat and visit in Cebu (by the way it’s a three days and two nights stay in cebu-bohol, so as much as possible I’m just searching for places that is just nearby)

So we took a half-day tour in Cebu using the map that I printed and I’m happy to say we nailed our Cebu trip.

Places we visited in Cebu:

Yap-San Diego Ancestral House

Colon Obelisk

Magellan’s Cross

Cathedral of Cebu Museum

Plaza Independencia

Fort San Pedro – this area is actually close with the ferry going to Bohol


Day 1 Since Cebu is known for their churches and historical places, I opted to wear a casual dress, pairing it with my white sneakers and cap (I’ve lost by the way my nike cap on our way to bohol 😦 ).

Day 2 Wearing dress again since it’s a Bohol country side tour and also I paired it with my white sneakers

Swimsuit: Onies which I bought ah F&F

Day 3: White beachy cover-up and shorts from H&M

Travel Date:

CEBU – Yeaps it’s summer and it’s freakin hot though we’re travelling light, however carrying your bag on a half day trip is a little bit hassle plus you also have to use your umbrella for sun protection.

BOHOL – HOT HOT HOT my outfit is just right since I’m not taking any activities that will condemn the dress that I’m wearing.


So far it’s the most expensive trip I ever had maybe because we’re just two but when I compare it with my friends who also visited cebu-bohol (in a group) the amount are just the same the only difference is that they we’re able to visited more places.

Last year I have written two blog entries for my upcoming travel and yes been too excited with that trip which I didn’t mention at all where I’m going. Yeps, it’s everyone fave summer destination “Boracay”

So how do I prepare for my Bora Trip?

Bathing Suit

First, I was having a hard time picking up the right bathing suit for me.  Then when I finally found one which I ordered online. I ordered two items by the way and in the end, I just got disappointed with the said items.


These are the swimsuit that I’ve been dying to wear, however the actual item is not the same with what I’ve expected the materials that they have used is sooo disappointing. Moving forward I ended up buying my bathing on Dept store.

Bora Bod

I’ve tried Cleansing, Apple Cider Vinegar, Exercise in Morning and Evenings and Jogging.

It was kinda insane that I did this routine five months before my upcoming travel, but in the end, I quit doing this stuff since my schedule was shifted again.

Travel Date

Due to unwanted weather in Manila, which there was a heavy rain and storm, I thought I would not be able to see Boracay at its best (sunny weather).

So our travel got delayed and was able to experience some sort of a traffic in the runway.


Day 1

And the weather was a little bit gloomy at the same time airy. Though weren’t able to enjoy our first day due to delayed flights. But we cherished the stay-cation at the hotel. At night we enjoyed the Beach Life in Boracay.

Day 2

Though this time around the weather seems to be pretty fine, I’m seeing Mr. Sun unfortunately all activities were cancelled due to airy weather.

So what we did, we rented a tricycle to fulfilled our Island Hopping.

Food Trips:

Every beach needs to have also a mouth watering food and yes we find it! These are the places where we eat.

  • Paluto – Buttered Garlic Shrimp, Sinigang na Hipon and Grilled Squid
  • Tilapia N Chips

Day 3

Last day at Boracay and the weather seems to be not fine at all!

In the end it wasn’t a bad experience after all, but will definitely visit this place again!

Baguio after 5 years

Like what we did before in Puerto Galera we booked earlier our accommodation to Baguio, though at first I was hesitant to go back to Baguio since we’ve visited this place before during our educational trip way back in college. And also I’m a new employee with my new job and I’m a little shy to ask my boss’s permission that I’ll be on leave, but in the end I was able to file my leave.

Basically, we don’t have a clear itinerary we only have a clear arrival and departure. Though I suggested that we visit 50’s diner and the bell tower church (which I’ve actually seen this place from my Facebook friends who also visited Baguio recently)

Then one of our college friends Donna, who couldn’t make it on our Baguio trip suggested that we should try eating at Good Taste and visit Tamawan.

Upon arriving at Baguio our first visit Burnham Park while waiting for Boyfie who currently lives in Nueva Ecija that time. We felt a little starved so we decide to look for Good Taste.

No words to describe this place definitely a “good taste” the food is worthy. I wished I have pictured our food. Anyway we ordered three viands (which is good for 5 people)

Liempong Kawali
Sangag na Kanin

Then finally my boyfie arrives, we head to our hotel, though our place may look like a creepy one (Yes indeed it was a creepy one). But somehow we enjoyed playing WII. (Lesson Learned: always look for a nice hotel)

By dinner we decided to visit SM Baguio and ate at Shakey’s ohh I forgot to tell you it was my birthday. And good thing I’ve got a discounts + free ice cream + happy birthday chants. After eating dinner we went for an ultimate ukay-ukay hunting.

DAY 2:
First stop, we ate at a 50’s diner, ever since I had this fascination eating at diners place especially the old school ones. Then we visit the Bell Church Tower, it feels like I’m in Hong Kong though I’ve never been in that place.

Next destination Tamawan, it could be better if we have tour guide in this place so everything will be explained.

Third Destination: Butterfly Garden

Fourth Destination: Camp John Hay and the Cemetery of Negativism

Fifth Destination: Mines View Park

Sixth Destination: Botanical Garden

DAY 3:

We visited Good Shepherd and Baguio’s public market, note that during summer it is not the best time to visit the strawberry farm
