I have always wondered what that tree structure was in Burgos circle. I pass by it everyday on my way home so after my chocolate fire date with Kamille we headed out to Burgos Circle.

It turns out it is a steel sculpture. According to the pages I googled the tree sculpture is called “The Trees”, aptly named if I may say so :p. It’s an artwork by Reynato Paz Contreras. Read More…

Mount Pinatubo teaser image

Looking for a travel buddy is easy if you’re going to beaches, monuments, food destinations, etc. But for places like Mount Pinatubo where there is some physical exertion involved I found it quite hard. For the longest time I’ve invited my friends to trek Mount Pinatubo and the usual answer : “ayoko nun nakakapagod!”, “mainit!”, “gusto ko yung relax lang”, “pass” and these are from basketball / futbol playing / sporty / gym going guys. No one wants to go trekking, period.

Two weeks ago, I finally got to go. Guess with whom? 3 girls.

Club Manila East in Taytay, Rizal teaser image

We went to Club Manila East in Taytay, Rizal last week during the “Araw ng Kagitingan” holiday. I was with my auntie and my cousins. I decided to spend some time with them because I spent so much time with my girlfriend Kamille over that long weekend.

I remember around 8 years ago we discovered this place. During that time not a lot of people knew about it and we had the resort all to ourselves every time we went here. Back then there was only one big pool and the giant slide, now they have Read More…

Thunderbird La Union teaser image

Last month we went to Thunderbird Resort Poro Point in San Fernando, La Union for Kamille’s birthday. It was her mom’s birthday gift for her. We were with her brothers JB and Kyle, her mom, and her best friend Monica.

The resort is located inside Poro point free port zone similar to Subic. It has a Santorini inspired architecture like Bellarocca, the buildings are white with a few sections colored blue, which I think is off. They should have just went with pure white to make it look more classy. Based on the development plan I saw in the lobby, the resort is maybe 50% done there are still a lot of unbuilt structures. It has a golf course, swimming pool, beach and garden wedding area.
