5 Reasons Why Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point is a Must Visit

La Union is great for a family getaway. The beaches are nice, and surfing is always an option. There’s no problem with choosing accommodations, too, since there are a lot of beachfront resorts and hotels in La Union that you can choose from. Personally, there’s only one place, though, that would keep me visiting La Union again and again: Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point .

Who’s ready for summer?

With all the stresses coming from all corners of the house, I am currently dreaming and looking forward to our brief Davao getaway. While the idea of my going away for a while for a full week should be lovely, I cannot help but also get concerned as I am leaving a whole lot of things behind – including the current finishing of the construction of the house. You see, we had this flight booked way before the plans of construction started. Not to mention it also got pushed back months later because of some very unfortunate circumstances we had to deal with. But we trust that God will deal with the people concerned. We are never just living for the here and now and we all will give account to whatever we choose to do in this lifetime. Just saying. 🙂 Moving on..

Deca wakeboard park

I know I could have composed this photo better. But we all know how challenging it is to shoot sport activities. But look at the lush greens surrounding the Deca Wakeboard Park! It’s even lovelier in person!

As I look forward to this quick summer Davao getaway, we are thrilled to be staying at my father in law’s place in Tacunan, Mintal, which is but stones throw away from Deca Wakeboard Park in Davao City. Above is a photo I took of the hubby during our visit last year, as he was reaching the last stretch of the ride. They charge P300 for 2 hours or P600 for 8 hours. (more…)

Post Trial Result: Gloww Capsules

One of the two essentials I made sure I got packed in my luggage before we flew for Vietnam and Cambodia was Gloww Capsules. The other one was my trusty insect repellent spray. We were told that mosquitoes are really huge in Cambodia and we are not risking our son getting dengue again. The other one is my current skin regimen favorite, Gloww.

Now that I’m done with the two months trial of Gloww Capsules, I can say that I am pretty impressed how my skin stayed just as fair despite the tours that involved a whole lot of sun exposure. Now, just to give you ladies an idea how hot it was in Cambodia. Imagine, the Manila heat, then add half of all the scorching heat to that. I would have stayed in the hotel, if it were up to me. But my very active hubby who loves the outdoors won’t allow me to throw away our once in lifetime vacation just like that. It was actually our first one full week getaway ever! 🙂

Aside from sunblock, the whole time we were in Vietnam and Cambodia, there was no other skin care product I used but Gloww Capsules.  I did not bother pack my usual night cream. My toiletries bag was just way too full already and besides, I thought my skin can make use of the needed break too.  🙂

Paintings from Tran Phu District 5, HCMC

Last Monday, April 2, was our last day at HCMC. Being pretty satisfied with our vacation. Unlike our previous ones, most of which did not last more than three days. I was ready to just wait until we need to check out. But since we still have a few more hours to kill, hubby and I decided to go to Tran Phu, District 5 of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam while our son was taking a nap.  The beauty of traveling with family! We left him with my folks. 🙂

Sorting out Travel Photos

1,131 images on our SLR and 996 on our S90 and TX10 combined from our 7 day trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. I don’t know anymore where I’ll start with this sorting task. Haha! But my mom’s waiting for me to upload them so she can grab the ones she likes and blog about them too. 🙂


It was a week before when we thought we’d need wolf camera coupons. But we did have enough good quality cameras to take care of the job. Here’s to days upon days of sorting these all out. And maybe create a photo book while I’m at it. 🙂

Look who is ready for KL

Although I still plan to download a Malaysian map on my Garmin gps, I went ahead and got a hold of this Globetrotter Travel Guide Malaysia. I got this from National Bookstore the other day for P645. Pretty much the same converted price via Amazon minus the shipping cost. I just love it when our local stores carry foreign brands. 🙂
