Errol and I were supposed to have a Davao getaway last week but my parents, still being in the old school era, didn’t allow me to go since there were only the two of us. As the obedient daughter, of course I didn’t come. Errol still went and I’ve asked him to take lots of photos and send them to me while he went solo backpacking, which he did. 🙂

07/06/2016. Pardon me for the lack of words. I’ll just leave it here.
Old memories washed,
I am now free and redeemed;
All is clear and new.
During the Holy Week vacation, I’ve had a quick bonding with nature without going too far from where I live.
On Holy Thursday, we went to Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban, Quezon for our Visita Iglesia. We left Cavite at around 3:30AM, and we reached Kamay ni Hesus at around 7AM. It was already a long line of devotees and Catholic visitors all the way up to the giant image of “The Resurrection.”
We went home right after.
The next day, Good Friday, we’ve had our Station of the Cross at St. Jerome Emiliani Church near Alabang Town Center.
We then decided to have a quick road trip along Las Pinas to Cavitex all the way to Ternate, Cavite. We reached Kaybiang Tunnel, the boundary of Ternate, Cavite and Nasugbu, Batangas.
We also reached Caylabne Bay Resort, though we didn’t actually get into the resort itself.
It was a great joyride, being this close to nature, embracing its beauty. City life is nice, but nothing compares to the life in the countryside.

During the APEC break (November 18-21), my family decided to have a quick North getaway. We left Manila Wednesday morning at around 5AM, had a lot of stopovers, and reached Vigan City at around 7:30PM. After eating dinner and enjoying Vigan’s night life, we decided to rest to continue our Ilocos adventure the next day.
It was really hot so I opted to wear sleeveless and shorts. I am most comfortable wearing shorts during long travels because it makes me really free to move.
Demins are always on track. For that day, I wore a black sleeveless top with a denim vest. I also paired them with my pink shorts for a girly but outgoing look.
I also used my Skechers Memory Foam footwear with pink shoe laces because aside from being a perfect match with the look that I wanted to achieve, it’s really good for long walks and long runs and I didn’t sacrifice comfort over style. I got the best of both worlds!
Here are our quick stops in Ilocos that you might want to visit when you get there:
1. Vigan’s Main City Plaza
2. Calle Crisologo ♥
3. Baluarte Zoo
4. Paoay Lake
5. Paoay Church
6. Fort Ilocandia
Ilocos’ BAGNET and EMPANADA are must-try’s!
For long travels like this, you must have a good companion to take care of your things. Personally, I choose The North Face bags because there’s a variety of bags that you can choose from, depending on your needs. And guess what? Zalora has them in store for you! You can buy bags from The North Face through Zalora and have them delivered right at your doorstep! Pretty much a click away for a great travel experience!
I can’t wait to visit Ilocos again, especially Vigan City. It’s a place that I would love to go back to again and again.
