Day Tour at Forest Wood Garden: Agri-Tourism Farm

I love minimalist and Scandinavian design, but Forest Wood Farm took me by surprise. I fell in love with its hall that is just a beautiful organized chaos. 

A unique farm and agri-tourism site in Laguna, the Forest Wood Garden Farm is popular for its Pancit Kalabuko and Plantsadong Lamang - Lupa.

A Visit to the MoCa Family Farm: Agri-Tourism Farm


For someone like me who can only afford to keep a small garden (maybe at our rooftop), I am always excited to visit a Family Farm / Urban Garden. 

MoCA Family Farm is truly one of its kind family farm resort in Batangas. An old mango orchard that was transformed into a garden and farm by Ms Gigi Morris and her family. The name is a combination of the surnames of Ms Gigi and her sister's respective husbands - Morris and Castor.

A peaceful sight, trees, greens,  and a spread of colorful salad and local snacks greeted us when we arrived in Terra Verde EcoFarm. It was a rainy day but the owners Sir Eric Atanacio and Sir Eman Atanacio welcomed us warmly in their home.

Kirby Cruz and The Fashion Hospital in Manila


Kirby Cruz and The Fashion Hospital in Manila

It is not everyday that you meet an artist whose heart is so pure and eyes are so keen at anything aesthetic. 

When I first got a call from Pam (of the very powerful team Eventzm), he talked about fashion designer, Kirby Cruz - and his vision to transform the streets of Sta Cruz into a fashion runway, I felt very excited being a Manila girl that I am. I just knew, it is going to be big.

From road trips to quick adventures, I am taking you to a different travel exploration with the Agricultural Training Institute of Department of Agriculture.

Philippines is recognized as a one of the world's top agri-tourism destination. Organic farms, nature-friendly farms, and health and wellness farms were among the top tourism farm destinations in the country. I am happy to take part in the tour to explore and share stories about these farms.

I am an #OABlogger since 2013 and I have participated in several Organic Farm tours around the country. Last month, my scheduled allowed me to explore organic farms in CALABARZON and witness the unveiling of 2 coffee table books.
