Amorita Resort, Alona Beach, Panglao Bohol


As what I mentioned on my FitFlop sweet escape post, Amorita Resort along Alona Beach in Panglao Bohol deserves a spotlight of its own. Alona beach is a 1.5 kilometre stretch of white sand and clear blue waters. Alona beach was originally named Tawala seaside. Back in 1980, a Filipina film actress named Alona Alegre shot some scenes along the beach. Since then, locals started calling Tawala, Alona. A few decades after and the name Alona stuck through. Amorita (means "little darling") is a ... [ Read More ]

No Vacation From Sun Protection With Daylong


I think I've confessed to this lack of skin care regimen of mine many times over here on the blog. I only wear sunscreen when I'm at the beach and back when I was younger (read: teens, early 20s) I don't even put sunscreen while I'm soaking up the sun, getting a tan! I know, I know, I'm more prone to premature wrinkles and I've come to learn & understand this a few months ago when I started noticing how bad my skin has become. I've been more prone to acne, breakouts, dryness and uneven skin ... [ Read More ]

Blogopolis 2015: Steadfast Blogging


When Nuffnang invited me to give a 10-minute talk about steadfast blogging, I was super excited and yet super nervous at the same time. I mean, how can you talk about something you've been doing for almost 4 years in 10 minutes? Ang hirap lang di ba? I know fo' sho' I'll blabber & chika my way given I talk a lot when I'm nervous. So I opted to quickly summarize what I've learned 4 years after I gave blogging a chance. Like any other blogger, I started blogging because I felt like it was ... [ Read More ]

Couch Potato


I can't remember the last time I was a couch potato. Lounging in my usual house body outfit- no, I don't wear sweat pants, more like an old dress or shorts & shirts that are too frail, spitting on them is likely to cause the cloth to rip apart heehee, eating junk food and indulging in my favorite TV series or book. I miss lounging, doing nothing else but just enjoy and relax. These days the only time out I get are bathroom breaks and pockets of moments when the lil' GJGs are taking their ... [ Read More ]

Thank you 2014!


Today is the last day of the year 2014. I can't believe another year has passed by. This year was a bit challenging for the GJGs. Mr. GJG & I have been tested, career wise while the lil' GJGs got hospitalised in different circumstances. Still, 2014 was good to us. I guess it's the unexpected that keeps us grounded, keeping us on our toes and motivates us to move out of our comfort zone. 2014 was filled with lots of new and first for us. As we close 2014 today, allow me to look back as I bid ...
