Boracay Summer 2014

Some of you would still agree to me the best beach destination in the Philippines during summer is Boracay. It is famous for being one of the world's top destinations for relaxation, offering white, powdery fine sand dotted, pristine water with resorts, shops, and restaurants.

Boracay is small island in the province of Aklan, Western Visayas, which is seven kilometers long, and less than a kilometer wide at its narrowest point. This island is originally home to the Ati tribe. It has two primary tourism beaches, White Beach and Bulabog Beach, which are located on opposite sides of the island's narrow central area.

Visita Iglesia in Manila 2014

When I was a kid I really don’t know what Visit Iglesia is. I thought it’s just the name of a church. My neighbors are always asking me if I want to join with them to visit churches every Holy Week. That time, I already have the idea it’s an activity which related to Roman Catholic religion. I always join them without knowing the real meaning of this Filipino tradition.

Manila Cathedral

Visita Iglesia (Spanish for "Visit of the Churches") also known as Seven Churches Visitation is a Holy Thursday tradition of Philippine Roman Catholics by attempting to visit seven churches to contemplate on the passion and suffering of Jesus Christ. Some people visit 14 churches to symbolize the 14 stations of the cross.This activity is may practice during any day of the Holy Week.

Hey tropa! Are you ready for the Summer 2014? Do you already have plans where to go? Are you going to spend your vacation in a beach, mountain, or just at home? Whatever your plans, you need to make sure you have the budget and time to make your summer vacation enjoyable and memorable.

In the Philippines, we always experience hot weather especially from the month of March to May. The tendency is to look for something that can relieve the uncomfy feeling. The first thing that comes to my mind is to go to beach. Oh! Yeah! I love beach! Summer is not complete without spending time at the beach.
