Beach Escapade at Playa Laiya Batangas

Playa Laiya at San Juan, Batangas
I must have been a mermaid in my past life.
Swimming in December? Why not? I have always been a “beach” person. I don’t think I would pass the opportunity to relax, hear the waves, bond with friends and just enjoy the waters. Before Christmas, I spent the day at the beach and was so happy to go on a trip at Playa Laiya, Batangas - a three hour drive away from the hustle and bustle of Manila.

AirAsia Says Thank You This Holiday Season

When I was younger, I came upon a story about a man who wrote down every "Thank You's" he said to each person. And when they weighed his notebook, it turns out that it's worth more than the price of gold. This holiday season, AirAsia believes it's better to give than to receive, and with their #ThankYou Christmas Campaign, they aim to fill the air with the spirit of gratitude and the promise of continued and improved service to Filipino travellers.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

For quite some time, I have been trying to collect cards from Starbucks, even the ones that are out of the country. During my Korea trip last year, I've noticed that their selections were different from ours, so I made sure to buy each design (and have coffee everyday because it is so cold there). This year, I am very happy that Starbucks decided to launch different cards that are beautiful and Christmas-y.
