Visiting Macau

Visiting Macau ensures a wonderful sightseeing and travel experience. The place offers a wide array of historic sites, museums, cathedrals, long-established houses, parks, hill forts, beaches, glittering hotels with luxury hotel rooms and casinos. I got a chance to visit the place with my friends several weeks ago and it was alot of fun. They have a very unique culture, and quite interesting. It’s like East meets West. I specially enjoy the time we spent in the casino hahaha. Yeah, I won! Will tell you more about it on the next post hehe. Laters, baboosh!

The Tour That Blogging Bought

Bukas na ang tindahan! Just got back this morning from the land of Hong Kong noodles para ma-experience ang lifestyle ng mga well-to-do ahahaha.

Weeee! This tour is brought to you by Pepe and Pilar in Pasig earnings.

Patapos pa lang ang winter, grabeng sobrang lamig. Sarado ang mga pores!!!

TODALEF TODALEEEFFF

TODARAYT TODARAAAAYT

NOW, TODALEF EN TODARAYT

hay napagod ako kakataas ng kamay

ang new hairdo, bangs at ang parang inogag na highlights ni Ate Georgia LOL.

Back to work, back to reality na. Expect more Pepe and Pilars in the next few days dahil kayod marino ulet ang ditse nyo. More pics to follow. Check out my next entries, I’ll tell you more chika, tips about packing, suggestions, what-nots and all other stuff you need to know when visiting Hong Kong in a tight budget. Super duper tipid talaga ito, in fact, twice a day lang kami kumain hahahha. For 8 days, including a trip to Macau, sa maniwala kayo o hinde, posible ang 20K pesoses na budget, pero ref magnets lang ang ma-sho-shopping mo with that money ha kaya wag mag expect ng Gucci bag dahil kahit yung japeyk eh pagkamahal-mahal doon hahah. I’ll tell you more about it soon, pag may time, meantime, maglalaba muna ang ditse, santambak ang labada ko as in.

A lot of my friends are finally tying the knot. There’s J, on March 10 (congrats dear, finally it’s happening, soo happy for you). My former colleague H is also now engaged to R, H is even asking me if I could be their planner/coordinator. So sorry H, I’ll try my best to help you out esp. with the tiara but I’m no professional wedding planner lol, I’m afraid, I could ruin everything for you and R on your special day hahaha. My best wishes to you both! Mwah. And finally, so excited for my cousin M. M and J are planning for an October wedding next year! Yeay! I dream of a nice and romatic garden wedding for you cuz.

Experience Great Adventure with Davao Wild Water Rafting

Do you love thrilling activities that make your adrenaline rush? If you’re an adventurous soul who loves all kinds of adventure, you should try Water Rafting in Davao. I’ve tried it twice already and I love it! There’s also another rafting site in CDO and Tugegarao but I have yet to try them.

Nothing can match the excitement it gives when you paddle hard against the raging rapids. An that up and down roller coaster ride over rocks and boulders, that’s an amazing feeling. Sure bet, you are going to remember it for the rest of your life! It is a lot of fun but it is also scary. It’s an extreme sport that can cause injuries especially when rafting on fast rapids. But don’t worry, Davao Wildwater provides proper safety equipment with an experienced guide who is familiar with the river you are rafting on. Check out their website or call their numbers (+6382) 301-2020, atoy 0920-9546898, poloy 0920-9546897 for more info. Happy paddling!

Jack’s Ridge Davao

I soo love our yaya. She’s an excellent cook. Just after our rafting adventure, she prepared a special dinner for us, here’s her specialty:

Dyaraaan! Kinilaw na tuna with ampalaya. I’m no fan of half-cooked/no-cook meals but this one is uber delicious. We invited some boylets friends to come over, unfortunately, we ended up waiting in vain, walang dumating LOL. It was the perfect time pa naman sana for a heavy drinking session hahaha, so as not to waste any more time just wishing and hoping and waiting, we headed straight to Jack’s Ridge na lang. If ever you visit Davao City, make sure you don’t miss this place. I super love it there. It’s like Tagaytay meets Eastwood.

It’s sitting high up on a hill overlooking the lights of Davao City. The view is to die for, especially at night, I know, hindi ko ma-justify ang statement ko with that picture hahaha….but that place got a spectacular view talaga. And it’s a bit colder there too.

Sarap tuloy mag-emote.

Jack’s Ridge actually got lots of things to offer:

Taklobo Restaurant
Kai’s Bar and Grill
Karlo’s Coffee Station
BMW Piano Bar
Kool Kat’s Pool
Souvenir ship
Cottages
Ampitheater

Here’s the view outside. Sorry for the blurred images, low tech ang camera.

Enjoy the night as you take unlimited pictures with your family and friends LOL

Jack’s Ridge is filled with reminders of its historic past. The land on which it stands was once the headquarter of the Japanese forces during the end of the World War II. Rumor says that hidden somewhere in JR are gold bullions and other treasure that the Japanese had taken from other countries and brought to Davao. Weh? Di nga?

At night, you can use this telescope to see stars, Venus, Vega, Sirius, other planets and constellations…charing lang. This telescope will only allow you to see just a little bit fainter than the naked eye, 10 pesos per 3-5 minutes.

descend this endless stairs to get to Kai’s bar LOL

This lovely coffee shop – Karlo’s Coffee Station – offers free film showing. 

Reasonble prices + great atmosphere + great music to serenade you = perfect gimik night
