November 26, 2018

Manila Prince Hotel is a newly renovated hotel located at Ermita, Manila.  It is under the same management as The Manila Hotel.  Last November, we had a quick overnight stay at the Manila Prince Hotel.  I say quick since we checked-in at past 2 o’clock in the morning and checked-out before 12 noon.     We weren’t able to maximize…

A Relaxing Time At Marina Bay Spa and Lifestyle Club

September 19, 2018

Every now and then, I would go and treat myself to a pampering session.   This can either be a massage, a pedicure, a hair spa, or anything that can loosen my stress, but nothing too expensive.  Work wise, I have been very busy this first half of the year and my usual pampering session was delayed.  So, when July started…

After visiting Palaui Island, I collated some notes that could help other tourist (or me when I visit the place again). Palaui Island is famous because this is where the Survivor Season 27 and Season 28 were held.

Palaui Island: Part 3 ~ Punta Verde

June 5, 2018

Punta Verde is where the local community of Palaui Island is located.  It is also a Marine Base. The shores of Punta Verde, during the time we went there, was full of dead seaweeds.  It was because it rained a day before we went there.  It looks dirty because it’s all black, but was really non-toxic naman. I was really…

Palaui Island: Part 2 ~ Siwangag Cove and Crocodile Island

May 24, 2018

After touring Cape Engano, our next stop was Siwangag Cove.  Our boatman actually asked if we wanted to visit the place, we said yes because we thought we’re already there so might as well explore everything.  It took us around 30 minutes boat ride from Cape Engano to Siwangag Cove. Sadly, nothing really was worth seeing at Siwangag Cove.  There are lots…
