History Homeschooling at Intramuros

I’ve never explored Intramuros in all my life, considering that I have been at this historical structure several times.My husband and I even held a gig at one of the restaurants for a couple of months and I sang at a wedding at The Manila Cathedral! I think it was my lack of interest in Philippine history in my youth that made me pass up on the opportunity to see the place and learn more about it. Thank God for homeschooling! It’s what sparked something in me to find out the story behind these walls. It turned out to be […]

Restaurant Review: Mamita’s Bulaluhan

There wasn’t much to do after New Year’s eve in Baguio. BenCab Museum was closed for the holidays and we’ve practically exhausted all attractions we planned to take the kids to. So we took our sweet time and just left the hotel right before lunch time. One of the things I wanted to do in Baguio was to try homegrown restaurants. We’ve tried the very popular Great Taste; and although the servings and the taste were indeed great, we didn’t feel like waiting too long for our food all over again.

And at one point in my once young and foolish mercurial mind, I though about entering the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) after High School. The only thing I hated were […]

Starwood Hotel in Baguio City

How do I start? Haha! Our stay at Starwood hotel in Baguio city was quite interesting, I can’t help but laugh about it every time I remember. Let me tick off the good points first. Booking was a breeze. We called to reserve and just dropped by to pay for our room. Easy peasy! The receptionists said we could pay on the day we check in, we just wanted to confirm earlier so we won’t have to think about it anymore. Cost is low, we only paid Php 1,900 for the room that has 2 queen-sized beds (Are those queen-sized? […]

Dinosaurs Island and Holy Land in Baguio

Dinosaurs Island didn’t really make it on top of my list when I was planning our Baguio trip. I was prioritizing places that can only be found in Baguio and thought that if we run out of time, it’s one of those we can set aside for another trip. But the kids expressed interest in seeing the place, especially Pablo who learned that animatronics are involved. So we decided to go when we couldn’t find a ride to Ben Cab from Tam-Awan. Baguio Eco Park rates We were informed beforehand that it would be difficult to get a ride back […]
