Escolta, if you haven’t heard, is an old street in Manila connected with Ongpin, Binondo, Sta Cruz, and Divisoria. I’ve been living in Manila for almost five years now and I have less interest with this area – not just Escolta but the the whole area after crossing Jones Bridge. I don’t like it since it is crowded and bit scary because I grew up hearing bad impressions. Since I was not much interested, I didn’t know where exactly Escolta is.
However, this year, I got a perfect time to know about this place. My experience was way different from what I heard. Thanks to my desperation in finding ways to sell my products and my excitement to use my film camera. I was able to discover about 98B Collaboratory – a place for crafters, and had a chance to enjoy Escolta Block Party.
I took the opportunity to explore the street after our event last Saturday. I called my mom to meet her in Binondo. The weather was gloomy but I love how it gave cool air which was perfect for the walk.

Have you tried travelling with your family (with your relatives, nieces and nephews, tito, tita, lolo, lola) and thought that you’d better have a trip with your friends? I’d thought that during our trip but I never hated it.
You like going on a trip with them ’cause you’re seeing them enjoying while you’re also enjoying yourself. But, I don’t like it when I want to go somewhere and I have to stay where they can see me ’cause they’re bit paranoid that something bad might happen to me if I am far from them.

It’s March and I think I had my early summer vacation. As always, I create my own itinerary ’cause I’m frugaaaal and I always make sure that everything will be on budget. I guess frugal is my favorite word. Hoho.
Enough talking, I know you really want to know where I’d been to. In two weekends, I went to two beautiful beaches in Zambales.

I’ve been punching myself to be reminded that I must not visit Baguio on Christmas holidays! But I must still thankful that it happened ’cause I had a learning experience which I want to share with you guys if ever you decided to visit the city of Pines on Christmas season.
Since Baguio has lower temperature from the month of December to February, many people tend to go there to catch the freezing weather. The last time I went there was October then I blog about my musings and hacks (which there actually aren’t many hacks there). So, my third time was last December 26, 2016. The experience had given me mooooore hacks than I could experience.
So, if you’re planning to get a trip to Baguio on holidays, especially this coming February for Panagbenga Festival, let me give you these expectations.

It is somewhere you want to stay at for forever. People tend to go to the beach to relax. I actually like going to the beach but I don’t feel relax in a crowded place.
I’m living in the city and my life there is very special that I almost want to go to Mars to avoid the pollution and anxiety. Then there is Isla Verde.
Let me set your expectation. Continue reading “Living in the island”
It’s my second visit in Baguio. I can’t tell if my first time was not the best one since it’s just a day tour with my family. For the second time, I got triggered to visit again because of my cousin’s Baguio trip stories and it even coincide with my recent life issues.
Anyway, I’m supposed to go alone but my mom don’t want me to so I went there with a friend who hasn’t been to Baguio. It’s her first time so I was quite anxious that her first trip would be fun. For us to enjoy the trip, since we only have two days to stay, I created an itinerary for the first time.

It is a great opportunity for me (and for my mom) to visit the National Museum. I always want to see what’s inside this building. My curiosity always activates whenever I pass by at this building when I go to the mall. But I guess, this is a perfect month for me to have a tour in this museum – for FREEEEE!
Why is it free? Are you sure? How? Continue reading “Visiting the National Museum for FREE!”
It is really a great time for me to go hiking (because I often have other agendas when my cousins invite me to hike). Anyway, I suggest that it is better not to hike during holidays. You’ll gonna be spending much time in the traffic jam- just like what I experienced. Continue reading “Mt. Pamitinan: A View from a First Timer”
