A Great Gatsby Party at the Penthouse by the Bay + Staycation in Rizal Park Hotel

Great Gatsby Party at the Penthouse by the Bay

A Great Gatsby Party at the Penthouse by the Bay + Staycation in Rizal Park Hotel

When you received an invitation by the Great Gatsby to attend a party at the Penthouse, you pack up your luggage and dress up to join the night of decadence ⭐

It was like stepping into the world of the Roaring Twenties when we arrived in the Penthouse by the Bay located at the rooftop of the Rizal Park Hotel. It is a new events place where you can have good food, fine drinks and magnificent view of the old great city that is Manila.

Juan Earth Event at BGC on September 29: Saving Mother Earth, Juan Step at a Time

Having more than 7,000 islands and 20,000 species of plants and animals, the Philippines is one of the 17 mega-biodiverse countries in the world. Yet with all these rich resources, unfortunately the country’s situation is bleak and saddening.

DIY or Packaged Tours + Klook Travel Fest 2018


DIY or Packaged Tours + Klook Travel Fest 2018

One of the things I love about traveling is the planning stage - that includes searching for the best flights, accommodation, and places to see and things to experience. Most of our travels are DIY because it gives us time to plot the schedule and insert church duties in between (the most important thing!).

Before we even arrived in Da Lat from Mui Ne, Crazy House (Hang Nga Guesthouse) is already on top of our must-visit places. 

A quick search on google describes the place as a  Gaudi-inspired building. I always admired Antoni Gaudi's one-of-a-kind style and architecture design so I was excited to explore the Crazy House

5 Brain Hacks to Easily Learn New Things + Spike Dietary Supplement Review

Spike Dietary Supplement Review

5 Brain Hacks to Easily Learn Things + Spike Dietary Supplement Review


Learning doesn't stop even after I got my diploma and landed a job chose what I wanted to do in life. 

I will always remember what my English Grade School teacher once shared - when they were students, they would wake up at 3:00 in the morning to study for their exams - that is when our brain has rested and everything will be easier to understand and memorize. I followed her advise -even if sometimes it translated to me cramming to write a reaction paper - and studying last minute for an important exam. Surprisingly, it works. I still follow the best practice when I need to write a blog or prepare for an important task.

When I looked at our itinerary and checked Mui Ne online, Google presented me with photos of red sand dunes and fairy stream. 

I didn't know Vietnam has sand dunes!?
