Holiday in Baguio + Frugal Travel Tips

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.

Dear Tote Bag Lovers

15420818_1527911767224979_5632067539294235581_n

On the last month of year 2016, I suddenly had this eureka moment to paint my tote bag. I am actually fond of using tote bags like the one on the photo above since it’s simple and it looks good with whatever clothes I wear. Also, it doesn’t have any zippers or pockets. Going back, painting this bag was actually a trial if the paint that I’ll use won’t get fade if I wash it. Great thing it didn’t!

What’s actually my point of doing this? I like painting but painting using acrylic is not my forte; however, I was happy that the result was better than what I’d expected. Meaning, it’s a good signal for me to start a tote bag business.

I actually like painting and tote bags so I’m deciding to build a business this 2017. I’m already looking for suppliers for tote bags. I tried to look at OLX and I saw one.

If you guys have any tips for me to run this business successfully, please let me know. I don’t actually have any idea on how to start aside from creating my own business account on Instagram or on Facebook.

There are so much designs in my mind. I’m just getting anxious of how to start and how to make it successful. Hope to get any help!

Tote bag lover,

Clarence

Travel hacks and musings in Baguio

Life hacks and musings_cover_CROP.png

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.

Adopt a Cat and a Dog Poster

I am fond of cats and dogs and been craving to have one lately. I used to have dogs – an aspin (Pinoy dog) and a pug which died with sickness because we’re living in a rural area and Vet clinics were hard to find.

Anyway, there’s so much posts on FB about cats and dogs. They are so cute and trigger me to have one. But I can’t have one. I want to adopt one. But I couldn’t get one. My family is so strict with house policy since we have kids at home and they’re health conscious.

I love dogs and fond of having a cat. Since I can’t adopt one but I love to help those rehab animals, I designed a poster which could possibly have them adopted.

I checked PAWS (Philippine Animal Welfare Society) page on FB and randomly took some photos.

 

These are the animals I put on my design. These are actually not an official poster and I was not contacted by the PAWS to  design for them, but these animals are actually in their rehab center; by any chance, I hope that this could help the society.

If you want to adopt one of them, please check their website for adoption procedures and you can visit the center so you could check more animals. However, in case that you can’t adopt but glad to help, the PAWS are open for volunteers.

If love enters…

If love enters between two worlds, change comes in. Change always comes. It will either have both people change gradually or briskly just to make both worlds compatible. This is like how Bella became a vampire, how people change their religion, how they switch into a different lifestyle, or how they left their social status.

Change happens all the time.

I talked to my mom when I was having my breakfast. My mind was active that morning and also it’s the perfect time for me to have a conversation with her. I opened up about the guy I like. She remembered him and repeated the story I told her before. Yeah. I told her that I have shared this guy to my trusted friend. Then, here’s my friend who gave me a “Not him” answer because he didn’t pass the qualification. Let’s say that “this” qualification is the number one thing I need for the future.

So, what now? Continue reading “If love enters…”

My first night at Ludo

I didn’t expect to go here. My friends and I actually planned to go in a burger restaurant but we passed by at Ludo as we went to Sweet Ecstasy. It was drizzling  but the evening weather was hot. We walked at the very end of the street were the burger restaurant is located. The place was full packed. It was drizzling and our clothes were moist. There were no available seats. We stayed for 5 minutes outside the restaurant and thought of plan B.

LUDO. It was the only option. Actually there are lots of option but one of my friends is fond of board games so she markets this game bar. She won. Ayaw na rin namin mag-isip ng matagal at pumunta sa malayo dahil gabi na at sayang ang oras. The cafe is one block away from Sweet Ecstasy.  Continue reading “My first night at Ludo”

5 Sense of Clarence

japan

Sense. I really put Sense not senses because of some OCD-ish reason.

Anyway, my friend and I talked about blogging. She’s actually a Tumblr blogger. One time, she had mentioned her ideas about blogging her week like for Monday, she’ll blog about food, on Tuesday about music and so on. She actually had a great idea. She gave me an idea on what I will post on my blog because I am not a creative blogger. The only problem was it was kinda tiring but I still wanted to do it.

So, I brainstorm until the end of my thinking capacity on how to put five topics in one post without ruining my other tags or categories.

Thank God, after 30 minutes, here it is – my 5 Sense. Continue reading “5 Sense of Clarence”
