Kalye Serye Maynila: When In Baclaran


When there's a chance to go out, explore, and take photos - I'd gladly take it. Last week, I only had about 2 days and 1 night in Manila for the Vivo V5 Grand Launch. We were housed in Nobu Hotel, City of Dreams in Parañaque which made it convenient to sneak in a quick photowalk in Baclaran.

Vivo V5: Redefining The Perfect Selfie

Have you ever wished that you could see into the future? We all likely have at some point. You might think that this kind of thing can only be seen in supernatural films and programs, but the truth is, you can actually train yourself to see glimpses of the future. Not kidding!

Kalye Serye Bangkok: #LocalFeels

I usually just post photos and a few captions for my Kalye Serye series but sometimes I'm a keyboard warrior in a sense that typing comes first before thinking (rationally), lol. I'm writing this blog post on the fly because, ahhh busy week! This week's Kalye Serye is about the third and last destination of our 10-day backpacking trip - a.k.a BKK!

In Vietnam: Fun Food Tripping in Ho Chi Minh City

One of the reasons a lot of travelers love to explore is, no doubt, food. Whether you travel in the Philippines or abroad, trying out local cuisines and delicacies is always included in the plan. I'd like to call it - livin' la vida local

Traveling in Style with StyleWe

Whether you travel in or outside the country, you would always want to bring the best and most appropriate clothes with you. Of course, as travelers and adventurers, you have your own style. In my case, I'm the type of person who will choose comfort over style any day. There are days when I wear mismatched colors and prints but I simply don't care as long as I look decent and okay. 

Kalye Serye Bloggers' Edition: Signature Pose

This week's edition of Kalye Serye comes with a twist. If you remember, I told you about the story of my signature pose which is the selfeet. I also showed you some of my most memorable selfeet snapshots.

If you’re thinking about heading to America for a vacation this year, I only have one recommendation. Head to Vegas. I know what you’re thinking -- but I have kids and little ones and Vegas isn’t suitable for them, is it? 

Magnificent Angkor Wat - Visit It At Least Once In Your Life

Angkor Wat was once just a wild dream. I was fresh from college when I read about it from one of my favorite celebrity blogs. I found it fascinating and grand. That moment, I told myself that I wanted to be there. I wanted to be in Angkor Wat and know for myself how it feels to be there. But I was young and just started working. I didn't even have a passport yet.

Plenty of places are great to visit for one reason or another. Whether that's the weather, the nightlife or the history. But every now and then you find yourself in a place that seems to have everything. A place that is so filled to the brim with things to do and see that you can't image how you're even going to take it all in. 

Selfeet Snapshots: This Is My Story. What's Yours? ♥

*Not me - but if I ever wear a pair of boots, I'll let you know. 

In a world where people take millions of photos everyday, there are always those who never fail to amaze us with their signature photo or pose. I am amazed.. and amused because these photos aren't just mere photos;  they also tell a story and exhibit creativity.

Now is the time when many of us might be planning a winter vacation. Though it might be nice to get some winter sun in somewhere like the Caribbean, you can still have a great trip in colder climes. You might have a ski trip planned, a hiking holiday, or just want to explore a city. 

Kalye Serye Ho Chi Minh: The Walking Spree

Setting foot in Ho Chi Minh City is like setting foot in Cebu for the first time. At least in my experience. It took some time to finally sink in that I wasn't in Cebu anymore, and that I was actually in Vietnam - a new country with much different language, with one hour time difference (Philippines is one hour ahead), and with most likely different culture.

Oops we did it again! For the second time around, Blissful Snapshots is a finalist of Best Cebu Blogs Awards (BCBA) - Photoblog Category.

I love exploring the US and taking my camera with me. After all, there are so many picturesque places to visit where you get some amazing shots. However, a lot of people make errors when they are traveling around America.
