Rainy Day Giveaway from Spyder Philippines and the Philippine Travelogue

Rainy Day Giveaway from Spyder Philippines and the Philippine Travelogue

How are you supposed to travel if it just won’t stop raining? Ah, this is a question I keep asking myself. Rain is such a downer, sometimes. But the good news? With the use of a few, but essential travel gear, you can! And you can enjoy it too. One of the companies who produce quality travel gear is Spyder, which focuses on dedicating themselves to the design and development of a variety of travel and sports gear – including eyewear, helmets, jackets and more. With one vision and a common goal, Spyder feeds on their customer’s feedback in order to improve their products. In the future, Spyder looks forward to more products that they can develop and offer to sports enthusiasts at affordable prices. So, what about them? Remember my review of their product just a few days ago? The one about the Vapor Jacket and the Polarized Glasses? Well, I’m giving two of my readers a chance to own one of these very useful products!

Falling in Love at the El Nido Resorts Apulit Island, Palawan

Falling in Love at the El Nido Resorts Apulit Island, Palawan

I woke up to the unfamiliar warmth of someone by my side. Usually, I’d think that I’d just come from a what-the-f^ck-did-I-do-last-night kind of morning. For the few seconds that I shook off sleep, I took in time to appreciate the soft bed and comfy covers. My pillows smelled good too and I felt totally relaxed, which was a shock since I’ve recently been too deep with my work.   But as the morning crept up to me and I recall the night before, I start to smile. I turn over slowly, to face him and found him awake already, his eyes pinned on me like the day we met at the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival. Up till now, he still takes my breath away. It was those huge, almond eyes, like he knew how to stare into the soul of a person, my soul. Like he knew me so well, despite our difference, despite my reluctance in actually starting a relationship. “Good morning,” I say to him. He smiles, reaching over to brush my hair off my face. I search his eyes for awhile, trying to look for any sign of regret, maybe try to see if he was just one of those jerks that I was so used to dating. “It’s a nice way to wake up,” he tells

The Great Guam Dream

The Great Guam Dream

When I was 9 years old amidst the lonely island country of Papua New Guinea, all I did was write. My dream someday – it changed every week, depending on what was more interesting during that week – McClaud’s Daughters or The Third Watch. This year, dreams have changed. From the huge, overwhelming dream of getting to every single province in the Philippines, I now dream of getting to every country in the world – including Guam. Hell, that’s a lot to take in right? So at the moment, before my birthday, I’m considering a challenge to myself. Like many other travel bloggers, I would like to take on the 25 countries before 25 challenge. Entering my 22nd year soon, I am running out of time. That’s not going to get me down though. I am as competitive as the models in America’s Next Top Model and I am ready to take the challenge. So, when I was invited by Heinz Tomato Ketchup and United Airlines to join their contest, I couldn’t resist their invitation. Besides, I was going to do so many things in Guam! Become friends with the underwater life in Guam. With their exceptionally clear and magnificent waters, Guam has an inviting variety of underwater creatures – from unspoiled coral reefs to shipwrecks during World War II,
