WiniMini Donuts and Snack Bar, Bauan Batangas (Closed)

Cafes just popped out like mushrooms. Was it a good thing? Yes! So people got lots of choices! And for people like me who loves visiting and pigging out on newly opened hubs, they are also opening opportunity for us to write something on our blogs. I think that's a plus!

Disneyland Park Paris: The Happiest Place on Earth

The first time I visited a theme park was when I was six years old, together with my brother and my Mom (the park was as young as me back then). There were rides, fascinating views, games and a whole lot more. I can still remember how fun was it. Really.

How To Get To Boracay From Manila

Boracay is one of the must-see places in the Philippines. There you can see one of the white sand beaches in the country. And to get there, you have two options.

1. By Air
2. By Sea

But today, I am going to share with you how we get there via plane. We've been to Boracay last September together with some delegates from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. For us living in Southern Tagalog part of the Philippines, it is way better to take the plane and fly to Caticlan. Though boats have direct trip from where we live (Batangas), it will take like a day of travel (12 long hours) and that is a waste of time. Why? For the fare will be the same if you sum everything up.

Me and my company booked through AirAsia knowing that it is the cheapest flight from Manila that we can find. The plane dropped us at Kalibo Airport (not the nearest airport) after a 45-minute flight. It was the fastest flight of my life. And it was also the worst because of the non-stop bump in the air. But that's okay. It is really part of the trip.

From Kalibo Airport, we rode on a van and traveled for another 2 to 3 hours in the road to reach Caticlan Jetty Port. The ride was smooth, had some local passengers to drive with us as well. In that trip, you just need to sit back, relax and enjoy the long hour drive. Don't worry, all of the waiting will be worth it in the end.

In the port, you'll finally ride a boat that will take you to Boracay Island itself. It was a quick trip (approximately 10-20 minutes) with splashing water on the sides (unless you are covered with the boat's plastic window).

Now, you're in Boracay! You can choose whether you'll ride a tricycle or you'll take a walk. Take a walk if the weather is nice, if you don't have lots of stuff with you and if you don't have me as a companion. Haha. You can reach even from Station 3 to Station 1 with your bare feet.

Plane Ticket = Php150++
Van from the Airport to Caticlan = Php200/head
Environmental Fee = Php75
Terminal Fee = Php100
Boat Fee = Php25
Tricycle Fee = Php10/head

So that's it. I hope that this post is helpful. Until our next trip!

Jam Boracay; Not Your Ordinary Coconut Jam

Hola amigos y amigas! Well, so sorry for being MIA (missing in action) the past month. September was simply a blast, a life-changing and awesome month. Yeps, and I hope I will also be able to blog about it.

As I've said, September was a blast. Me, GJ and friends went to Boracay for a week and had totally refined and nourished spiritually. But I'm gonna cut it there, for this post is reserved for a review.

If you've been to Kalibo International Airport, you're probably familiar of this Korean Store inside the souvenir building right in front of the Airport.

Yes, outside (which is still inside of the building) is a Korean Restaurant

We stayed here for like half an hour. That's because we are punctual though we know that our flight will be delayed again, like the first one.

See those Korean characters? Okay.

GJ and I found this interesting product out of curiosity. It was always played in the TVC (that's in the store) how good the jam is. It shows how the store is always packed jam. I mean, packed jam. Well, I guess you get me, right? :D
