Starting 2017

For the year 2017, I’m back with my Planner!

I have stopped for two years using a planner since I lost my motivation for using one. Usually, when I use a planner I turn it into my scrapbook and diary. I put pictures of events happened on certain days or just scribble/doodle on my planner. The use of my planner was not only to plan or to schedule an event but also to be like a yearly album full of memories.

I started having a “Planner-Album-Diary” when I was in High School and whenever I see those planners again, I reminisce the fun events happened back then. Seeing those planners made me missed in having one. With that, I will start 2017 with a planner.


Minalungao National Park

Before the end of 2016, I was able to visit one of the tourist spots in Nueva Ecija which is the Minalungao National Park. The national park is located at Sitio Minalungao, Brgy. Pias, General Tinio, Nueva Ecija.

Minalungao is from the term “Mina and “Lungao” meaning “mine of gold in caves” It is considered one of the few remaining natural environments in Central Luzon.

The National Park has a protected land area of 2, 018 hectares and is working together with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). The access road leading to the park from the town proper is classified as barangay Road. The Road from Barangay Pias to the park is good condition. It is also accessible via Gapan City.


Unboxing: BIGBANG 2012 Alive Tour in Seoul DVD + Photobook

I’ll be unboxing BIGBANG’s 2012 Alive Tour in Seoul DVD. Some might say, “Why only now? That was in the year 2012.” Well, that is because I just bought this DVD recently. I usually don’t buy CDs or DVDs because I need to choose between spending money on concerts or merchandises. That is why I save up and spend it for concerts and lightsticks since I like it better experiencing everything live and in person. So what made me decided to buy this one? First, it is BIGBANG!  Second, a music store here in the Philippines, Odyssey, had a massive album sale. I got this DVD and Photobook for Php 300 only! Such a steal deal since it was originally priced at Php 2000. Bought this one at Greenbelt 1 in Makati. (more…)

All Things At Awe

A month ago, I attended a seminar at Manila Marriott Hotel, Pasay City. The place has interiors for an Instragram-worthy shots! And of course, I can’t help but to take pictures around the hotel.

The lights, designs, and just everything were just breathtaking! And I think you can take a picture of any part of the hotel since every corner is just nice to capture.
