Taiwan Travel | Our Luxurious Suite at Grand Hyatt Taipei Hotel

Taiwan Travel | Our Luxurious Suite at Grand Hyatt Taipei Hotel 

Staying in a nice, decent hotel is always a part of a good vacation for me. I always look forward to hot bath before I crawl back in my bed after a long tiring day of exploration. 

I was elated when Rodel managed to book us a room suite in Grand Hyatt Taipei. The day before our flight, he asked me if I wanted to get a limousine service from the airport. 

I said "why not?". That would save us the trouble of finding our ways around Taipei MRT system. 

#IAMDIFFERENT : Penshoppe's Anti-Bullying Campaign

It is sad that at this age, people still experience being bullied, isolated and mocked - just because they chose to be themselves and be different. Bullying is no longer confined in the walls of classrooms - it is in the walls of one's social media newsfeed. 

Penshoppe, a local retail brand in the Philippines empowers the youth to celebrate their uniqueness through its #IamDifferent Campaign.

Aquafina Now in the Philippines: World’s Best-Selling Bottled Water 

Amazing fact about me: I drink 1 gallon of water a day! 🚰

Water is my favorite drink in the world. I think that is my little secret how I keep my metabolism going.  I am however, very cautious with the kind of water I drink. I usually buy bottled water (especially when dining in a restaurant).

I always get excited about the idea of watching movies and documentaries at home. I think I have mentioned that time and time again on this blog. 

The thought of just staying home in my room, in my fave ratty rock shirt - while enjoying a good movie (with popcorn, or Cheetos!) is the next best thing to traveling.

Travel teaches us things that we would never learn in a formal education. We learn about people's ways and how we adapt to new environment, weather and culture. I still learn things about myself whenever I travel or visit new places. 

What is more fulfilling is to explore places and help kids while we travel.

Manila to Taipei via Eva Air + Taiwan Visa-Free Entry

Taiwan Visa-Free Entry for Filipinos Manila to Taipei via Eva Air

Manila to Taipei via Eva Air + Taiwan Visa-Free Entry 

Flying to Taipei was a quick decision and sort of an escape when we found out that my friend was denied of Korean Visa. I was broken-hearted even if I got a multiple entry visa. My friend #D offered to go with me in Korea, but part of me was feeling disappointed and turned off.
