The Ultimate Getaway at Aman Resorts, Amanpulo, Palawan

Aman Resorts in Amanpulo is one of the best resorts in the world. It is owned by 7 Seas Resort, Inc a joint venture between the Aboitiz, Soriano and the Aman Resorts group.

I heard a lot of good things about this exclusive island-resort in the Pamalican Island, which is part of the Quiniluban Group of Cuyo Islands in Palawan. Some are saying this is an expensive getaway destination exclusively for the rich people and elite travellers such as businessmen, celebrities, and politicians who want total privacy on their vacations.

The Fascinating Black Sand Beaches in Albay, Bicol

Before I go to Legazpi, a friend texted me, who is living before in Albay, Bicol, told me I need to check the black sand beaches that can be found along the coasts of Bacacay, Sto. Domingo and Tiwi. I know it’s kinda rare and fascinating that there are beaches in the Philippines that have black sand because we normally see powdery-white sand. I heard also the Big Island in Hawaii is famous for this attraction. Which do you think is the best black sand beaches ? in Bicol or in Hawaii? hmmmm...

Anyway, after my Mount Mayon Adventure in Casagwa Ruins, I headed to the city of Legazpi via jeep and being charged of 14 pesos. Actually, I had two rides before I reached the main terminal of the city known as Legazpi City Central terminal. On this place, you can choose jeep, van or bus going to particular destinations like Legazpi to Manila, Sorsogon, Naga, Tiwi, Sto Domingo and others. According to 'manong driver' the nearest black sand beach is in Bacacay.

Parish Church of St. Michael the Archangel in Caramoan

Churches are very close to my heart. Even I'm not look like a religious person (hehe), I'm very faithful to God. I see to it I always have time to visit any church in the metro to give thanks to all the blessings that I'm getting now. 

One of the best places in Caramoan that my group visited was the Parish Church of St. Michael the Archangel.  It is one of the oldest churches in Camarines Sur. The church is very eye-catching because of its beautiful structure covered with brick stones. As sun light strikes the wall of the church, it glows the red color of the stones.

What's with the Mayon Volcano

Ever since I was in grade school, I want to see up close & personal the Mayon Volcano, also known as Mount Mayon . The “perfect cone” of this big triangular shape object that I usually see on my history books and post cards is now for reality.

My badminton peeps plan was just to go only in the island of Caramaon in Camarines Sur. They booked the trip going to Naga dated April 27 via Phitranco Bus. Due to my working sched, I was not sure that time that’s why I told them I will be the one to book for myself some other time.

The Iconic Style of RayBan

Accessories are always part of my adventures especially the eyewear. The weather here in the Philippines is hot so I make sure that my eyes is protected from the direct heat of the sun. I really love wearing sunglasses in all my tours just like in my recent summer getaway in Caramoan, Camarines Sur.

Recently, I visited the booth of RayBan in SM Megamall. I was joined by super gorgeous bloggers in the metro namely Pax, Nika, Mikki and Paul. The booth is inside of the SM Department store just in front SM Supermarket. It is super cool and eye-catching just like the RayBan eyewear. All the RayBan models displayed in cool cubes. The collections are arranged properly and accordingly.
