This is the Only Beach Blanket You’ll Ever Need!

The Only Beach Blanket You'll Ever Need

I’m a beach bum.  The sand, sun, sea water and ocean breeze energizes me. I get restless when even once  in a year I have not visited a beach yet.  As much as I love the beach, I don’t like sand on my stuff. I like it on my toes but not on my towel or bag or whatever I have with me when I lounge around the beach area.

But thanks to this new beach blanket I got from a recent event, sand is not an issue anymore and I can roll around by the beach all day and all night long!

This is the only beach blanket you will ever need, you should get it too!

What to Do When in Puerto Princesa Palawan

PhotoGrid_1427175210897

When Multiply went kaput, my previous travel diaries went along with it, taking with it so many pictures and words I can no long repeat! Sigh.   I also had one at Slider but yeah that closed too and it took away my travel slides huhuhu. Reviving and relieving the moment and some of the pics I was able to recover, let me tell you what I did in Puerto Princesa, Palawan…

Puerto Princesa, Palawan is on my mind lately, specially with the Summer just around the corner.  How I wish that instead of staring at the blank walls of the hospital or the citiscape view from the hospital window, I am looking at the beauty of mother nature, with the sand on my toes, feeling the soft breeze brush against my cheeks, and the sun’s rays kissing every part of my body to roast.

In November 2007, I explored Puerto Princesa, Palawan in all it’s glory and not so tourist populated beaches and coast like now especially because it was declared as one of the new 7 Wonders of the World.

I am not sure if the airport looks like this now but in 2007 this is how the Puerto Princesa City Palawan looks like, and visitors arriving were greeted by a marching band! I

I was seated in front of the boat because I am tiny haha and I was the one assigned to hold the lights so we can see what’s inside the underground river / cave.   Armed with my point and shoot digital camera (I think I had a Kodak, the first digicam that came out during those tiime) I was able to take these beautiful shots I am proud of them!

Our tour guide dived for a few just to show us his pet a giant clam!   I don’t know if they are still alive or there are new batch of sea critters in there now. But the most outstanding sea critter I saw was a Stone Fish said to be very dangerous.

480210_10150742568896528_1731310914_n
I have a funny story about this blue starfish and the king starfish , I thought they are dead so I picked the kingstarfish so I can take a photo with it.  But then suddenly, its points folded and I got so shocked I dropped it on the ground and whoa, I have never seen a starfish moved that fast!

This clam is super duper heavy!

I saw this by the shoreline and asked our tour guide what fish it is.  What a scary surprise! It is as deadly as hell!  A prick on your toes or if the fist touches your skin will kill you in 24 hours!

When I went there tourist were scarce they run generators on the island up until 7 pm and then it is total darkness except for lamps provided.

I haven’t been back to Puerto Princesa since then but these photos I have make me relieve the moment again and again just like I was there.  I am looking forward to the time I can go back again and see the changes in the island.  I hope not so bad because of the influx of tourist.
Puerto Princesa Palawan
How about you, have you been to this part of Palawan before?  What sights did you see and enjoy most in Puerto Princesa?  I would like to hear about it!
Stay gorgeous everyone!

5 Natural Views of Singapore

River Safari in Singapore

Singapore offers an incredible collection of things to do for the vacationing individual or family. Some of the most amazing buildings and constructs are visible throughout the location and deliver one of the most unique places in the South Asian area. However, Singapore also offers some of the most diverse natural hot spots to explore as well. From intricate gardens to wetland reserves and safari tours, there are many facets to the natural aspect of Singapore.

Night Safari

Night Safari Singapore

The Zoo Night Safari has grasped the attention of many visitors as it provides the sense of close interaction with the various animals. Although there are protective measurements in place, visitors can experience wildlife first hand without the obstruction of cages or bars. You can either take the tram or walk the trail to get up close to a myriad of animals.

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

Located on the Johor Strait, the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is home to a wide variety of animals and plant life. Nature’s creatures such as the monitor lizard and Kingfisher call this location home. Boardwalks sprawl to different areas of the reserve keeping visitors safe from predatory lizards and animals such as crocodiles.

Fort Canning Park

Fort Canning Park Singapore

Fort Canning Park offers a look into the plant life of the area. Gardens, elegant constructs and more are spotted throughout the park. Artwork, pools and symbolic arches add an appeal to Fort Canning that is unique. Events are held regularly on the greens and patio of the main facility as tropical birds perch within the trees.

Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

Bukit Timah Nature Reserve Singapore

The trek through the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve gives one more of a sense of isolation compared to other areas. Although the restoration of the center may limit access to visitors, the areas that are accessible can still be enchanting. Waterfalls, lakes and tall cliffs give this animal refuge a memorable appearance.

River Safari in Singapore

River Safari in Singapore

This attraction takes visitors through a tour of water creatures and exotic fish. Giant crocodiles, the red panda and more are present in this adventure. The Amazon River Quest is one of the more attractive features of the River Safari in Singapore.

Although this coastal location is a popularized destination, it’s still possible to find affordable hotels in Singapore. Even the less expensive of these have provided world class service for patrons. It doesn’t have to be expensive in order to visit one of the prime locations on the Malaysian peninsula. Embrace the nature of Singapore and create lasting memories of this majestic location.

#HalerBaler! What to do in Baler when you are not into surfing.

#HalerBaler! What to do in Baler When You Are Not Into Surfing

What to do in Baler if you are not into surfing

I am not a surfer.  But from time to time I like pushing myself to my limits.  Surfing is one extreme sports that the physically and mentally brave would love to do.  The adrenaline rush is worth the gallons and gallons of sea water you can swallow.  It is worth the painful smack of the surfboard when you fall off and crash with the waves. It is worth getting naked for (when you are not wearing proper gear) as the waves will molest you from head to toe pulling every piece of clothing you have on off you!

Stoked in Baler
Hahahaha!

Did I just sound like I definitely am not a surfer? Yes, I am not.  While I was stoked a few times, I concede that surfing is not for me.  I rather fly , sky dive or bungee jump. Seriously.

First week  of March 2015,  I was in Baler, Aurora for great outdoor adventure.  You know, surf, trek, bike, hike and just be one with nature again since I am all drained from the city life I live (charot).  It was one of my get outdoor time where I recharge and just get some sea, sand, sun and fresh breeze on me.

While Baler is the known as the surfing capital of the North, as I admitted earlier, surfing and I was not meant to be.  I was glad there are other things I can do while in Baler, which non-surfers can do to while in Baler, Aurora.

What to do in Baler if you are not into surfing
Where is Baler, Aurora?

Just to put your head on the right geographical place, contrary to popular notion, or common misconception, Baler, Aurora is not  Quezon Province, you will not pass Cavite, Laguna Batanggas. Baler is up North of Metro Manila, passing Bulacan, Pampangga, Subic, Nueva Ecija. Before Tarlac and Baguio!

Now that I have set your geography straight let me tell you What to Do in Baler When You Are Not Into Surfing and to have an amazing #SummernaBaler!

Don’t get me wrong, surfing is still the best thing to do while in Baler!

In all honesty, this trip was my second attempt at surfing. The waves was eating me alive to a point that I almost feel like drowning, although I did not. My nerves got me first I guess and the waves here are just crazy and continuous. This will work in favor of the already surfer enthusiasts who have done more than twice of surfing in their lifetime. As for someone who is not even a beginner like me, the waves of Baler, I can’t handle! Promise!
I can surf in La Union but I can’t in Baler, the waves are just so monstrous and continuous, perfect for those who are more advanced at surfing than I am, or have surfed at least more than twice! #HalerBaler you are awesomesauce!

Check this video out to see what the waves look like in Sabang Beach, Baler, Aurora and why they call it the surfing capital of the North:

Now, for the non-surfers, here’s your other options on what to do while in Baler:

Visit the 600 old Balete Tree. Entrance / Tourist fee: Php15.00
They said there’s a ghost living in this tree, or well, that myth/ old man’s tale about the Balete tree and how this is the favorite place of unearthly beings to live on. With the number of tourist that visit this tree everyday since it became a tourist spot, I don’t think anything mythical would want to live in it. But I would say, the tree is so magical. It is energizing and such a wonder to see. Hug it when you see it in person. It just feels great! The roots and branches are so strong, except after Yolanda, half of the tree fell-off.

Balete Tree in Baler Aurora
 

Balete Tree Baler
Visit this white private beach Dicasalarin Cove.  Entrance/ Tourist Fee
It has beautiful rock formations perfect for an outdoor photo shoot. View is so picturesque. On a good day like when I was there there’s blue sky, blue sea, beautiful waves. The beach area is creamy white, not powdery sand but coarse. So many corals and rocks by the shore.

Dicsalarin Cove Baler Aurora
 

Dicasalarin Cove Baler
Visit the Dimatubo Mother Falls! Entrance/ Tourist Fee: Php15.00 and donation along the way any amount.
It will take a 15 minute walk/trekking plus more than 30 minutes drive via tricycle from the city proper to get there. But the view, the feel is worth it! For non-surfers, you would rather love to swim in the falls than in the beach of Baler. The fall water is refreshing and cold. It is so clear you can see from bottom. Actually the falls is the watersource/ supply of Baler! Yes the water is so clear you can drink it!

Dimatubo Mother Falls
 

Dimatubo Mother Falls Baler Aurora
Watch me as I fall for the falls!
 

Visit historical places like the more than a decade old Baler Church, Ermita Hill, Aurora Quezon House, Baler Museum. The Baler Church is the smallest old church I have ever been but the interiors is just beautiful as well. Spanish architecture of old Catholic churches are just amazing!

The hanging bridge! If you have fear of heights, might as well conquer it here. Breathtaking view and experience because of the wobbly looooooong bridge!

Hanging Bridge Baler

Where to Eat in Baler? Three places I love to dine at in Baler:

Eat in Baler: Rolling Store, Yellow Fin, Hungry Surfer

1. The Rolling Stores, just opposite street of the famous Baler sign (of which I did not take a pic with because it was too mainstream!) A meal with on viand and rice is just Php50.00!
2. My favorite eating place with a perfect view of the Baler Beach, Hungry Surfer! Food is great! Ambiance is perfect. Servers are friendly, restroom is OK. Price is reasonable. Serving is perfect for my appetite!
3. Yellow Fin. Cap the night with grilled stuff and some drinks beer or cocktails. They have their own DJ. Place is cozy with great servings of inihaw stuff I ever had. Price is affordable.

How to get to Baler, Aurora:

Joy Bus Deluxe ride to Baler

The easiest way to get there is by taking the Joy Bus from Cubao Quezon City. Fare is Php700.00 for the Deluxe (with seating capacity of 28) or the the semi-deluxe (with 48 seating capacity). The ride will take about 5 hours no stop-over. The Joy bus is so comfy, fast, and has toilet inside, with free blanket to use while on it, and bottled water and a snack.

I heard Joy Bus limited their bus allocations going to and out of Baler so it is best for you to book your seats if you want to ride a Joy Bus. If not you can take the regular airconditioned bus going to Baler.

Where to stay in Baler?
There are many transient houses in Baler aside from the Bayside resorts/ hotels and lodging. You may ask the tricycle drivers there they are all so kind (especially those who have a tourism ID) they will take you to the most affordable place you can stay to the most expensive ones. You can get a room for as low as Php900.00 to as high as Php7,000.00 during peak season. Which is right about Holy Week vacation.

#HalerBaler What to do in Baler when you are not into surfing>
I heard that last 2014, Baler experienced an influx of tourist which led the local tourism to have the schools and the municipal hall open as temporary accommodations of tourist. To date, Baler has prepared for the same number of visitors so they have opened a lot of new resorts and transient houses.

How to get around Baler?

If you will go to the places I mentioned above, the best place to do it is to commission a tricycle driver (better get one with tourism ID because he will have access to closer parking slots on tourist destinations in Baler like the ones I mentioned above). Get a tricycle driver and he can accommodate as much as 4 passengers and take you for a whole day tour for Php800.00!

I was happy with my get outdoor weekend in Baler, I shall post later about the things I wore while there.

I hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully encouraged you to visit Baler sometime soon!

Stay gorgeous everyone!

How to Win A Trip to Bali and #SeizetheSummer with #TeamSuspects and Vaseline

Vaseline water-Based whitening serum
Would you like to win a trip to Bali, Indonesia?
I bet you do.
But first let me tell you about the New Vaseline Water-Based Whitening Serum.
Vaseline water-Based whitening serum
This product was launched at Stella last week and we all get the first dibs about what this product is all about.  The Vaseline Water-Based Serum is not your ordinary lotion, or whitening lotion or sunblock as it is a serum and is water-based.
#seizethesummer with #teamsuspects
 At the event we were grouped into the place we wanted to visit this summer and we had a mini quiz-up where my #TeamSantorini won (8 out of 10 questions baby! without Google! Yeah!) Haha!
