Known as the capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia, Sydney is popular among tourists for its vibrant nightlife, beautiful harbors, and stunning beaches. Today, I'll take you with me on a quick trip to what many refer to as the Emerald City. MEL to SYD Traveling from Melbourne to Sydney took less than two hours, and it was way warmer in Sydney. I'm glad we went on a weekday because it would have been hectic on a weekend. We had four days to explore and do sightseeing. It didn't exactly start fun due to a few hiccups and the pouring rain, but well, none of ..read more

Last month, coming from a municipality in Ilocos, we figured it would be best to take the bus from Vigan for safety reasons (the Partas station near us was close to where the recent Army-NPA encounter took place), so that's what we did. We traveled to Vigan, then stayed at a nearby hotel after seeing our godparents and before going back to Manila. The place is called Ciudad Fernandina. Ciudad Fernandina Hotel | Simply Beautiful Ciudad Fernandina is one of the many accommodations in the city of Vigan- one of the country's UNESCO heritage sites, known for its cobblestone streets, modest vint ..read more

Hi! Okay. So, this is a late post. I wasn't sure if I wanted to post this (I didn’t think we ordered enough to make a proper review), so it sat in my drafts folder for months since last year; that was until now.  Café Kitsuné at The Podium Café Kitsuné is a contemporary café that offers coffee, sandwiches, and pastries. It's a global brand with branches in France, Japan, South Korea, New York, China, Thailand, Manila, and more. I’m not sure where exactly it originated from, but they have a Paris-meets-Tokyo concept. I always notice this coffee shop whenever I go to the mall, but I had ..read more
