Boracay Island: The Second Time Around


I think I’m the only person I know who has been to Boracay Island only once. It’s such a funny fact considering it’s a short flight away but yes, I’ve only been to one of the world’s most beautiful islands, Boracay, once in my life.

Our Tagaytay Wedding Story: Venue Hunting

Finding Fun in Online Games


These days, finding entertainment is a piece of cake. When I was young, having fun means going outside to play under the afternoon sun. Now that I’m 27, my idea of a good time has certainly taken on a whole new meaning. Take for example that fact that I actually found a night at the casino extremely entertaining. I won’t…
