Life: Make it Mission:)

For the past three days, it's raining non-stop here in the Philippines because 2 storms passed by (Egay and Falcon, and I heard that another one is coming >.<). But the rainy season won't stop me from my mission. I've been at it for about three weeks now. I've been searching, researching and considering a lot of options.

Travel: Sagada, Mt.Province

Our last trip before summer vacation ended and school officially began, was in Sagada, Mountain Province. Sagada is famous for its caves and water falls. It is a thirteen hour drive from Manila. We left at around 10:00pm, we were bound for Banaue first, where the famous hand made rice terraces is located. We pass through several province like Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, and Nueva Vizcaya. The ride was okay but I didn't get much sleep because I wasn't use to sleeping on a moving vehicle (I prefer my soft bed, thank you very much ^_^) but I did get may be an hour or two of shut eye. After 10 hours of driving we finally arrived at Banaue around 7:00 am in the morning. This was what greeted us :)

Life: Noraebang-ing.

Summer's almost over and for the last three weeks of May, there's this place that I often visited. I've been there three times,so I go there at least once a week. The first time was with my favorite girls, my TVXQ female version babies:), second time was with T1 girls to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, CHEERS!, the third was with my CassPH family to do an interview with certain press people.

So what is this place? Well as the title says, it's called a Noraebang (노래방) in Korea but it is commonly known as Karaoke place. In the Philippines, it is known as Videoke. Just like in a normal Karaoke place, you can sing and dance to your favorite songs but the main difference is that they're main song collections are full of Kpop songs but there's also a variety of Japanese and English songs. Yes, believe it or not we have Noraebangs here in the Philippines. The place that I often go to is named Joosarang, it is located in P.Burgos at Makati but I also went to Music Bank in Diosdado:)

Life: So far...

 I was not able to post for quite a long while because I've been quite busy.

The end of April until the first week of May have been really busy but fun and fulfilling :) Before April ended, I enrolled in a 10 sessions program on Socialites Driving School and the next day my lessons immediately started. Driving isn't as hard as I thought it would be. Mind you, I have zero driving experience as in none.Zilch. So I was shocked and nervous when on my first day, my instructor told me to sit on the driver sit and start driving. He gave me a 5-10 minutes lecture about the basic parts and functions of the car then off we go.

      My I.D. lol yeah no picture. (And yeah, of course it's my boys on the background)

Travel: El Nido, Palawan Island Hopping

El Nido is a 6 hours drive from Puerto Princesa. It's like Manila to Baguio :). The long drive is definitely worth it when you arrived. Let me tell you, El Nido isn't like Boracay. It's a place where you can relax, enjoy and be one with nature while in Boracay it's more like parties and events. The main beach in El Nido is so-so. What you want to do when you go there is Island Hopping. There are 4 island packages there but the most popular one is tour A so that's what me and my family opted for.

We arrived at El Nido around 6:00pm, too late for island hopping so we decide that we'll just have it the next day. The tour started at 9:00am, it's a whole day trip because you'll be visiting 5 attractions. The first one in Package A is the Small Lagoon.

Travel: Puerto Princesa, Palawan Underground River

We started the day early since our tour van fetch us at around 7:00 am. One thing that you should know about me is that I'm not a morning person, seriously I start my day at around 12:00 in the afternoon already so I don't like waking up early so I'm a little bit grumpy.LOL. Anyway It's a 2 hours drive from Puerto Princesa City proper to Sabang, where the underground river is located. We arrived at Sabang at 10:00 am, our tour isn't until 2:00pm so we have a lot of time to spare. The tour guide brought us to a nearby beach resort, Parao Beach, where we can swim and eat until our Underground tour and boy, the place is gorgeous! Look!

Travel: Arrival in Palawan, Philippines

My first post for my Palawan summer vacation!

We left for the airport at around 1:00pm our flight isn't until 4:00pm but my mom, always the early bird, wanted us to be at the airport two hours before our flight and since our house is like 15-30 minutes away from the airport, we were there around 1:25pm but luckily they were already checking in our flight so we checked in and bought some snacks. Me and my little brother were both bored out of our wits so I opened my laptop and we watched Harry Potter but then he got bored so we switch to Wanted. Before we knew it, it's already time to board our plane. As always my little brother got the window seat but it's okay since I'm a really really a nice older sister :).

                             The view from my brother's seat. Wing seat XD

Life: Day out ^^

Me and one of my best buddies decided that we'll go out before both of us went off to our own vacation. She'll be going to Vietnam on the 16th and I will be off to Palawan on the 14th. One thing that you should know about this friend of mine is that , she's CRAZY:) in a good way though. I always have fun when I go out with her. So we had our nails done, and the crazy person that she is, she suggested the color of our nails and guess what color it is?

It's technicolor:) Mine on the left and hers on the right.

Life: Summer:)

It's that time of the year again, and the moment I got my grades is the official start of my summer vacay ^^. Ofcourse, summer means that I'm a year older again. I spent my birthday with some of my great friends, such a shame that we weren't complete but oh well we take what we can get:) It's just a simple bonding time and dinner is my treat^^.

                                  My Starbucks Venti Birthday cup:) It's Java Chip!

I'm about to turn off the wi-fi but since my brother said that he needs it, I'm just gonna leave it on and edit this intro post. I'll just post pictures about me instead so it won't be boring ^^.
