Why You Shouldn’t Go to PTTA Travel and Tour Expo and Reasons Why You Should

PTTA Travel and Tour Expo Why You Go and Not Go

We were there yesterday at PTAA for the 23rd Philippines Travel Tour Expo. Left home as the sky was breaking dawn and the wind, crisp and chilly still, kept as company as the jeepney we were on navigated the slopes and curves of our highland town to get to the closest city.

Four hours later with only the A/C of the bus between us and the searing heat outside, we finally arrived to dusty, traffic congested Manila. That’s how far home is from the metropolis. But we braved the commute, after all we were delirious for hotel and travel deals that we know with certainty we can score from the PTAA travel expo.  😀

Happy Times Caleruega Sky Ranch Tagaytay Family Outing

Caleruega Nasugbo

Where to bring your visitors on a day trip that is near Manila or Laguna? My easy answer would be Tagaytay – this highland place has much to offer on top of its cool climate and tourist magnet Taal Volcano.

When my aunties and cousins visited us last December, one of their request was to go to Tagaytay. I was their vacation planner, so I made sure to wove this place onto their itinerary. Since we were based in Liliw, taking public transport or commuting to Tagaytay from our home is a challenge. It required multiple change of vehicles – jeeps, tricycle, jeeps, jeeps, etc – something that is not so good news health-wise for majority of my charges (i.e. may aunties). They can brave the long journey if they had to, but they didn’t have to.

Hotel Review: RED PLANET ASEANA CITY Near Airport, MOA, Pasay

Red Planet Hotel Aseana City

One of our favorite hotels with affordable room rates is the Red Planet. This chain of hotel used to be called Tune Hotel. So if your taxi driver is not familiar with Red Planet, just tell them that this is the former Tune Hotel, and just give them the branch name.

So far, we have stayed in Red Planet Angeles City, Aseana City, and the one in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). This will be a hotel review of Red Planet Aseana. We’ve booked there last December 2015 for an overnight stay. We used Red Planet’s booking app to reserved and pay for our hotel room accommodation.

Paskong Pinoy sa Liliw – Ready na pang-aguinaldo sa mga bata :D

Paskong Pinoy Tradition Namamasko

“One, two, three, sixteen, twenty one! 21 groupings of 10 pcs coins each, that should be enough, right?

“Baby maniwala ka kukulangin yan sa daming batang mamamasko after magsimba.”

Christmas 2015. This is my first time to spend Christmas day in Liliw, and I am so looking forward to the hordes of kids who will come knocking on the doors, shouting, exclaiming ‘mamamasko po!’.

Years ago, my then boyfriend Titus (the hubby now) regaled me with stories of kids that will descend on the town of Liliw on Christmas Day. He told me to prepare coins for the kids Aguinaldo or gift – 1 pesos, 5 pesos, 10 pesos, so I did.

Asus ZenFone Selfie Deluxe Cover

I’ve had my Asus ZenFone Selfie phone with deluxe cover Illusion Smooth Pink for four days now and so far, I’m a very satisfied Selfie user. And as of last count, photos taken by this camera phone runs 177, and this is after deleting tens of unflattering pics, hehe.

I’ve saved for a new phone at the start of 2015 in my piggy bank, and a day before my birthday I got myself a brand new ASUS ZenFone Selfie with deluxe back cover – a Birthday and Christmas gift rolled in one.
