Macau 2012

Our first trip this year was in Macau.  We were there last February and it was a perfect time to visit.  It was a winter season and we’ve enjoyed dressing up and put on our boots because we can’t do this in Philippines.. Though we thought that we were not prepared because peeps there were fashionable.. we were like, uhm.. kind of amateur-ish in fashion.. haha!  I may say that this was my most relaxing trip, we didn’t rush and was just taking our time.  Maybe because we’ve enjoyed the weather so much.  Picked the best shots, here we go…  (sorry for posting it like forever.. hehe)

Bored.. Our flight was delayed!

Venetian by night.  Taken this while in taxi going to our hotel.

Our first stop – Food trip!!!

Saw this big fat dog while going back to our hotel.

Day 1: Our lunch for only 17 Pattaca.  The meal has rice, 2 sets of veggies and 2 sets of meat.  Not bad!

From our hotel, it took us only 15 minutes walk going to the Senado Square.  They still have the Chinese New Year set up.  I love the happy colors!

Senado Square

You should not miss this one when you visit Macau.. It tastes so good!! Try it especially when it’s freshly baked.. A buttery Portuguese Egg Tart.. YUM!!!


Next stop: Ruins of St. Paul Cathedral

Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral

At the top of the Ruins, you can see how many tourists are visiting the place.   Look closely on the pic, you will see dropped coins  from tourists.   and I dropped mine!  haha!

There is a small temple beside the Ruins.

We still took more pics even we were so tired of walking…

Peg time! hahaha!

Bought Fish and Squid ball with beautiful view…

But mine was better!.. hihi!

We saw this very very cute dog from one of the stores in Senado Square. Wah! I forgot his name!

Next stop: Casinos!  Of course, the best time is the night time!  The place was so lively, all the lights were on.

Inside Grand Lisboa Hotel:  We were not allowed to take pictures inside the casino. 

I guess this is made of corals…

Then we went back to Senado Square for another batch of shopping spree.  Look at the Senado Square by night.

Day 2:  There’s a nice and clean park in front of our hotel (London Hotel).  Every morning, there are people staying for exercise, chatting and strolling.

Ole London Hotel

Boots! At least we have a reason why we are wearing boots.. haha!

While waiting for the bus going to the Venetian.  Thanks for the late bus, we managed to get our own PEG!!!

Inside The Venetian.  It has fake clouds, buildings on Italian design, authentic Venetian gondola, shopping mall, hotel and the biggest casino in the world! (accdg to Wikitravel)

excited to shop!

Makeup shopping!

Next stop: Taipa Village.  It’s like Vigan here in Philippines.. A long street with old houses and buildings.  We went to the museum and stayed at the cute coffee shop for another egg tart!

We had our dinner just nearby our hotel.  It was a small place but few people were eating, mostly from work.  So we tried it and the food was great! It was so authentic.  But you have to wait for a few minutes as they need to cook it right after you order.

I will definitely go back to Macau at the same season.   See you soon!

Summer beach outing 2012

We went to Lian, Batangas and stayed at Bella Beach Resort last May 19-20. It was just an overnight swimming and bonding with friends together with their family.  Though we were not complete, we still pushed to our outing.   Busy peeps need a break!! And we need a break!  Sharing our pics…

Cebu and Bohol Trip 2006

Thanks to Cebu Pacific’s promos on one peso fare and has given us pinoys to travel the beautiful places of the Philippines.  Since they started this promos, it has been a habit for me to check their site everyday because once they released the promo.. it’s really hard to get a slot!!!  As in always a downtime on their site…  Everyone was trying hard to book their flight…  One of the flight promos I got was a Cebu flight and I really tried to include Bohol since it’s only a ferry ride away from Cebu… Here are some photos during our trip…

Of course, we had our last stop… massage!!! there’s a spa right next to our hotel, Palladium Suites, so we took an advantage to try  it…  Nice place with affordable price

Independence Day 2010

I was supposed to attend a fun run at Fort Bonifacio as part of a celebration of the 112th Independence Day of Philippines.  Kaso I didn’t get a chance to register and now I’m bum here in front of my laptop… But I heart Philippines and I still want to express how am I truly a dedicated Filipino…  So I collected some of my shots during my trips within Pinas and made a collage and show it to the world how beautiful the Philippines is…  There are so much places to visit… There are so many things to explore… Beaches, Mountains, Cities, People, Food, Culture and Tropical Weather…  Bakit ka pa lalayo???  🙂
